EASTERN ARBITRATION CASES
AND COMPARISONS ARGUED
Exhibit Presented in Chicago Hear
ins; Correcting Alleged Errors
in Exhibit of Railroads.
(AjiMjifj Prtss Ki-fort.)
CHICAGO .March 17. Jetter C. Pritc'.i-
ard chairman sml Timothy Shea a mem-
ber of the hoard of arbitration in the
Western railroad wage case appeared in
court today with Rreen neckties.
"This Is our contribution to the day."
said William S. Carter as he Introduced
"exhibit $7." which by chance was
hound in green.
The exhibit purported to correct alleged
errors In "exhibit one" of the railroads
where it dealt with rates of wages and
compensatory rules of tiremen and
hostlers on Hastem railroads. Testimony
as to the exhibit was given by l. H. Rob-
ert son. a vice president of the Brother-
hood of Locomotive Firemen ami Kiminc-
men. He was iiuestioned by Mr. Carter
president of the brotherhood.
In the Kastern arbitration five years
rro the witness explained that the iieriod
oi the award one year had expiieo before
it was possible to get the arbitrators to-
gether nuln to Interpret thoir award.
Meanwhile some of the men on individual
railroads grew impaittent and accepted the
Interpretations of tne railroad managers.
"In this way the entrinemen or the Cen-
tral of New Jersey lost the five-hour day
In passenger service and a feeling against
arbitrating wage disputes grew up in the
East." said Mr. Carter.
Witness stated that in practice arbitra-
tion awards generally continue after the
term of the award until one side or the
other gives notlcee of desiring a change.
For instance he said the Kastern award
still was observed.
"L!ut about these readjustments: the
men never give up anything." said W. L.
Park vice president of the Illinois Central
and a member oft he board.
"No. but they have things taken away
from them." responded Mr. Robertson.
COTTON RATES WERE RAISED.
Ocean Traffic Charge From Galveston
(Houston Pott Special.)
GALVESTON Texas March 17. The
ocean freight rate on cotton shipments to
Liverpool from. Galveston went to $1.27
per 100 pounds yesterday afternoon. This
is the highest level the Liverpool rate has
reached and is an advance of 17 cents
per hundred over the rate asked Monday.
While it is admitted that the increase
in the Liverpool rate probably was to
some extent due to the announcement yes-
terday of the great Increase in marine in-
surance to British ports. It is thought
that scarcity of tonnage Is the most con-
spicuous reason for the advance. It is
said that a large proportion of the ships
belonging to the regular lines have been
conscripted by the British government to
be used as transports and that there is
scarcely any space offered for cotton to
Liverpool at any price.
BOOSTED RAILROAD RATES.
Two-Cent Tariff on One Arkansas Line
Mtiorialrd Prtss Report.)
LITTLE HOCK Ark. March 16 The
Arkansas railroad commission today
granted the application of the Jonesboro
Lake City and Eastern railroad to be al-
fowed to increase its passenger rates to
3 cents a mile. This action was made
possible by a bill passed by the recent
legislature authorizing the commission
to trrant the railroad permission to make
this raise If it should be able to prove
that the present 2-cent rate was insuffi-
cient. Members of the commission said
they were convinced the Increase is
necessary. The new rate ia to go into
effect March 2 next and remain in force
until July 1 1916.

opposed him became his warm friends.
