Statement That Labor Costs Not What i OTTAWA, .March of the annual statement of the C. P. n. punctures tho claims of lion. F. Carvell that tho railroads are barely SQiicei'liiK through, duo to their hiRh wapo bills, accord- ing to Tom Jlooro, prcjiilent of the Dominion Trades and Labor Concress. "Either the C. P. R. accountants do not know their business, or Mr. Car- vell does not know what ho is talk- ing declared Mr. Moore today. "Mr. Carvell says the railways were barely able to squeeie through and that they paid 50 cents out of every dollar earned to meet their wage bill. This is strange, us the usual divid- ends have been paid by the C. P. R. according to their statement as they earned 11.4 on their common, stock. They have paid out 10 cents of every dollar Iu dividends and an additional live cents to meet fixed charges. Thus capital is rewarded to the extent of 15 cents on the dollar." 'As for his statement that the rail- roads' operating costs have risen 100 jer cent, in the last three years, the 2. P. R. report does not bear this out. In 1918 their operating bill was In 1920 it was an ncrease of less than 50 per cent. With this it must also be remembered .hat their maintenance work during :he past year has been far heavier than it was during the war as much work was undertaken which could not be touched previously due to the diver- sion of raw materials, such as steel, for war purposes."
