mands of the locomotive engineers of all
eastern rail ways for Increased" pay, : His
testimony, while it referred mainly 'to the

the Wnoleca'8e'of the railroads so clearly
that he held the attention of the board
for the: three hours that he was on the
stand. v '.
Mr. Atterbury said the Pennsylvania's
method pf arriving at a.baals of pay for
its- employes ha been"a - constant n-
deAvor, to pay a fair rate foe affair!, day'al

In, an unofficial capacity.' He could not
remember the ampunts which the Morgan
firm or Mr. Frlck gave In 1904, but classed
(hem. among the. large contributors, to
that campaign.. '
The books which Mr Sheldon ss treas
urer, kept. In 1908, were produced for in

"Tou aald- - that -aO- Aoosevelt knew
nothing, of it until after ths election By
that you mean that you have no knowl
