Plnent railroad officials J Grand Cnaplaln rley welcomed the delegates Chairman Adams then in Chauncey Deuew president of the New York Central Rail road The appearance of the distinguished gentleman was the signal hA V wlldest When order had been Depew proceeded w delivered an address which was tstened to with great Interest Several times he was compelled to pause owing to the deafening applause of his Depew spoke highly of the Brother hood of Locomotive Engineers and said that during the period of its existence and prosperous growth hundreds of labor organizations had been formed and dis been started to carry Into pro to put untried out novel theories or practice unusual and The success of your body is due to its rigid adherancc to the rigut principles upon which it Ao labor organization can permanentlv succeed whose sole and only object is to increase wages and diminish It lacks the essential bond of mutual sym pathy and brotherly help in bearing or lightening each others The tendency of such an organization is in evitably and rapidly to collisions and The fundamental idea of the Engineers Brotherhood charity In support of the sick and injured and contributions to the family of the dead education which perfects the artisan in the theory and practice of his trade and broadens him for larger use fullness as a citizen protection in securing and maintaining your Your record is unexampled in the his tory of contact between employer and employe at home and and the intelligence and prosperity of your members Depew spoke of the allpervading idea of the past few years of trusts and said this universal ef fort to absorb the to divide the people into employing companies and and to destroy will inevitably end in Hostile legislation aud laws of trade will leave only the legitimate enterprises In the same way and from the same causes there have been several ambitious attempts to form gigantic labor trusts which should combine under one central and autocratic authority every occupa tion in which wage earners could In all such associations of trades and oc having nothing in certain qualities of fluency of peech and capacity for manipulating caucuses and push to thc front many men who know little of the great Interests confided to their Labor must be as intelligent as capital upon its own The committee which calls upon the employer or railroad officer must know its own business as well as he knows Otherwise from angry contention be cause of comes the exercises of brute force and violence fails to se cure that which in nine cases out of ten ould have been had by an intelligent Hundreds of committees of our employes have been to see me and I can safely say after the full and free discussion which always took not one of them ever went out of my office except to carry back a satisfactory mes age to their The reason Tor these ready settlements was that the men understood their own business knew precisely what they wanted and bow much the company could afford to But in the operations of what I may call the labor trust I bave had different Depew cited an instance of where fifteen men at one point on the line were ordered out by the chief of their local who was a and who look that action because be had a row with a passenger On another occa ion a high official in the order called on who soon discovered he knew nothing of what he was talking The official confessed he never bad been in the railway service in his Such representatives of organized said bring it into disre pute both with employers and the A committee called upon me last fall with a series of all of which were quickly and satisfactorily They then made a demand on behalf of the locomotive when I in formed them that body could speak for They then said their object was to break up the organization of locomotive engineers and gather into one every department of the railway if the management of the New York Central would recognize the engineers only through them this result would be brought about and upon a much lower basis than the brotherhood could admit and if we did not do so they would strike and tie up the informed the committee they might do their but that In the matter effect ing the brotherhood he would recognize only that The threatened strike never Speaking of the New York Central Depew said Years of successful trial of frank and with the employes of the New York Central had led him to be lieve a strike was impossible on that In that trust he went abroad on his annual holiday to have his hopes rudely shattered by a cablegram an nouncing a But the he were irue to the relations which for many ywrs had been estab lished and and it reinvigorated his fading faith in the efficacy of any ef fort to maintain a satisfactory and per manent understanding between capital and The citizens of New York and of the whole country owe to the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers a debt of gratitude for thc fidelity and intelligence with which they stood by their posts and performed their du during the recent troubles on the New York Depew touched briefly on tbe matter of government own ership of Time does not per be of a discussion of the effects upon our institutions of the appointment of a million of public servants being given to the administration and made the patronage of the party He referred to the letter carriers in England who worked long hours and got on an average of six dollars a After a vain effort for the betterment of their condition they The government instantly filled their put a police beside each new man and dispersed tbe gatherings of the old In Germany the government owns the A locomotive engineer receives about 845 a month and if he deserts his engine he be comes the subject of severe Libraries have been written upon Jabor and capital but they are mostly In the varying conditions for complex civil ization no general rule seems possible which shall be applicable to all cases as a relief for the antagonism between capi tal and Every difficulty must be solved upon its own It is just here that the intelligent labor organiza tloa composed only which Mela of the oocupa to secure a right or redress a can meet Its employer upon the grounds which will show their mutual dependence and pro mote their common It Is just here that Ignorance or Incompetence on one hand produces Irritation aud resistance on the The period ought to come when the employes In any industry shall not be arrayed In hostile camps agclnst their employes In the same When combinations will not be of work ers on one hand and officials on the other against each but with use and friendly disposition he shall meet upon a common ground for a common good and an overwhelming sense of common Grand Chief Engineer Arthur was next introduced and was enthusiastically re He congratulated the Brother hood on the healthy condition of its and said in part Though there is a oneness of there is a divers ity of and we hope that dnring the course of our debates to find equala tlon by which the problem of our difficul ties and differences may be It Is by honorable action that we have achieved success as a labor not by not by boastful asser tions of owing to our we might compel corporations to that never has been our policy We ask but just nothing If there be those who would array labor against I am not one of them or with If there be those who regard the interests of labor and capital as naturally or properly antago I do not agree with The interests of labor and capital are identi cal to be more Any argument respecting labor which does not distinctly recognize and concede the truth of this proposition must needs be and as a matter of fact it is recognized aud conceded by all eminent authorities on the The
