K. Rice , superintendent of the Illinois lines of
the C. . [ J. & Q .arrived Home trom Chicago last
night and was seen by the reporter.
"Yes , " he answered. "His true ; thecompany
has adopted the new schedule , which gives our
men practically the standard pay. On sonic
things we arc paying more than any other
road in the country ; on others a little less , but
the average is high. "
Continuing Mr. Itice said that all of the ne
gotiations had been conducted between Vice
Piesident Hum's and the union committee
representing the U. II. C. and the U. 11. T. , on
the C. , H. &Q.system. The leaders will remem
ber that these committees were in session I'ere
several weeks working on the schedule. Air.

§ 93 a month , instead of $60 to $75 as formerly ,
while brakemen get a corresponding increase.
The through freight trainmen are paid by the
