President E. F. Grable of the main maintenance
tenance maintenance of way employes, summoned
before the U. S. railroad labor board
at a special hearine to prevent a
strike of 400,000 maintenance of way
laborers, flatly" contradicts the labor
beard's justification for its recent
wage slash. ; In a statement to the
public, Chairman B. W. Hooper of the
board stated that only a very few
workers have suffered the cut to 23c

Grable, who knows more about main maintenance

man in the country, informed .the
board that this propaganda statement
was without justification in fact. He
"The 23-cent wage applies to all
common labor classes of maintenance
of way men, in the northern states
as well as in the South. When the
wage is inaugurated on July 1 it may
affect more than 100,000 of our men.
Moreover, the principle is the same,
North or South, whether it applies to
6000 or 100,000, a 23-cent wage can
not be defended before the American
people upon any basis of human
The employes whom the labor
board has condemned to work for 23c
an hour or $1.84 a day are entrusted
with the responsibility of making safe
for public travel the tracks, roadbeds
and rights of way of the carriers. The
present wage slash is not only driving
them below the level of any possible
decent human existence, but is also
setting a basic scale for the pay of
unskilled workers so low that it will
pull after it the already insufficient
wages of the more skilled employes,
whose compensation is reckoned upon
the basjc unskilled rate.

what John was thinking concerning most everything.
This letter-writing business has become such a habit with me that I cant

On the way down I stopped off at Jacksonville for a day. Then I took
another day off and ran down to that grove which John bought last winter
when he was down here; and which now is yours. It Is certainly looking
fine. George Glass, who used to work for me, is living up there on the

The interest you show in the possibility of marketing some fruit off your,
grove is what I suppose might be expected. After a fellow has been checking
up the records of what money has been put into a new grove for five years
or more, he is usually about as receptive toward the prospect of a crop
as a maiden lady Is toward an expected proposal of marriage.
Of course, you can seU your fruit It Is just about as easy for a Florida
citrus grower to sell his fruit as for a city man to blow out the gas. Some Sometimes
times Sometimes there is considerable similarity in the consequences In that neither
party is in a position to undo what has been done.
For about fifteen years after I came to Florida and got into this business
of growing fruit I sold my fruit It sold lt"ln about every way that it might
be sold, but almost every time I got
the bargain as I got cash moneyj
When say this, I mean that I sold my fruit to other people who paid
me for It and who In turn marketed it in the KNorth. That is evidently what
you are talking about Now I don't sell it that way, but let it go through
