CHICAQO. , Jan. 12. After, dally' negotia
tions which ' have, .lasted several weeks.
Western railroads today decided to give
locomotive engineers Increased wages ag
gregating t$,0O0,600 and 16,000,009 annually.
The Increase will affect between 1S.0UO and
JO.flOO engineers on all Railroads watt of
Chicago to the Pacific Coast, north to the
Canadian border and south to the Gulf of
Mexico. The negotiations were carried on
between a committee headed by Chief W.
S. Stone of the Brotherhood of Locomotive
Engineer and another, of the general
managers. k ,
Th advance 'will apply to. al!. classes of
engineers. On passenger , locomotives the
engineers will rruelve a ft-cent increase on
a 100-mlle run. On freight engine the
Increase will range between g and 11 cents
per 100 mile. In all the larger freight
yur'ds 'the switch .eoglnwer will receive
additions of from M to 78 cent a day, with
the assurance that they shall not b kept
out more than twelve hours. o . ;
Apparently the spirit of compromise gov
erned the negotiations, for the engineers
have practically agreed to give their
oontention fvr an eight-hour day, have
abandoned demands regarding pay for orer
11 m and .will not- Insist oa thetr original
demand with regard, to sight competency
of engineers. The switch - engineers .ware
refused sn stlowanoe of nlme and a half In
etceaa of twelve hours.
This Is the first time in railroad hlatory
that ht demands of a labor organisation
have been considered by all railroads In
a large territory. When the Joint demand
wag Hrst made the railroads refured to
treat with the engineers a a whole, pre.
