six days before the strike waa declared

"Dear Sir and Brother—Thoae who
were in attendance at the Chicago
mooting last July, if honeot enough to
tell the truth, well remember my
. pleading with them not to take a strike
vote on the question of the it per
cent reduction of Toly 1, but, instead,
to pass the strongest possible reso-
lution against such reduction and make

“I could not make myaetf believe
then* and surely sot et this time, that
railroad man cquld taka tha poaltloii
that they would »©t accept any reduc-
tion whatever, although all other
of labor were being required
to accept one or more reductions fully

members of the brotherhood la tha

Instead, tried to follow a conservative
course. Because of such unjust treat-
ment by thoae I was attempting to
help, or. rather, save, I concluded last
jJuly (when I Allied to get ***T con‘
nervatlve help m>m those at the Chi-
cago meeting of the five organlfcatlBhs)
to change my policy and para the re*
sponalblltty heretofore used In connec-
tion with proposed strikes to our gen-
eral committeemen—to do whatever
such committeemen desired, not in
violation of our brotherhood’s laws.
Therefore, the general chairmen, In my
opinion, are entirely responsible for
whatever result follow* this proposed
; strike. If we as an organisation win
and make the U. 8. railroad labor board
restore the 12 per cent reduction de-
fined in decision No. 147, the credit is
all their*, tt w« lose, 1 know In ad-
vened they will say the fault is Bill
Animosity .Against Railroader*.
“1 have no hesitancy in saying that
In my entire lifetime 1 have never
known of a more unanimous feeling
against us by the business and labor
world than now exists, and to me It
is the greatest: sin ever committed by
so-called labor leaders to approve of
thotr membership committing suicide,
as t believe Is bound to occur If the
strike goes on as scheduled, although
to disapprove It in the face of the
action taken by our membership and
committees would mean annihilation
of the leader, In so fkr as his future
with his organisation waa cwctnM.
“I had hoped that after twenty-thra*
years’ membership In tha brotherhood.
1 should never live to aea tha day that
the membership I represented would
become so Ingaao as to demand the
right to commit suicide—at a time
when more mon are out of employ-
ment and more men on short tim# in
this country than aver before known.
The railroad companies most certainly
want the strike to go on, because they
know It will likely mean the sad of
our organisation*. They fully realise
them am at least two, If not three,
men for every Job that will be made
vacant by the strike, and while I am
sura you know that physically and fi-
nancially I can afford to have tha

day* this statement may prove

garding my pesitloa aad my honda*
belief aa Indicated before tha battle
commenced; hence this advance state-
ment. Ordinarily I welcome a fight.
With a railroad or with » Individual,
but I do not relish letting tbo other
fellow plefc the time aad place, to say
nothing of the arms that are to bo

walked blindly Into a trap ouch aa
now set for all railroad labor organ-
isations. only tha transportation
brotherhoods will be foottm enough to
stumble Into. My beat Information,
gained at Chicago yesterday, was that
tha other railroad labor organisations
would probably not Join the trans-
portation brotherhood# to the contro-
versy, and while I hare not always
approved of the action, taken by Ben
Jewell and his bunch, I will certainly
take my hat oft to them if at a tim*
like this they show sufficient intel-
ligent to keep out of a controversy
desired by the railroads and . encour-
aged and financed by the manufactur-
ers* associations of this country.
