This railway circular presents a list of suggestions for ending an ongoing railroad strike as written by a group including the governors of Kansas and Missouri. This solution was promoted by officers of the Missouri Pacific Railway and the Texas Pacific Railway including R.S. Hayes, First Vice President and H. M. Hoxie, third vice president of the Missouri Pacific Railway. The resolution asks railroad executives to restore all striking workers to wages prior to September 1884 when wages were cut and to return strikers to work without prejudice.

Creator: Hayes, R.S.
Date: March 15, 1885
