Moving Our Troops
a Huge Task
Plan« for the movement of
over a million men (the largest
troop movement in the history
of the country) arc now being
perfected by the American Rail
way Association at the request
of the United States Govern
ment. Altogether, 687,000 men
will have to be transported to
the various cantonments now
building to house the new na
tional army, and 350,000 national
guardsmen are even now being
assembled at their camps.
This was the announcement
made to-day ny C. J. McDonald,
w ho,. a^ General Agent of the
Western Department Headquar-
ters of the association, is per
fecting the details out here.
"The movement w i l l start
about September 5 th .,” said Mc
"Between that date
and September 9th. the roads
will complete the entrainm ent
of 200,000 men, or about thirty
percent of the total to be moved
to the camps
" It is expected that a second
mevement of another 200,000
will begin on September 19th,
continuing for four days there
after; and a third movement of
the same size will start on Oc
"An idea of the task in mak
ing out schedules that will guar
antee the safe and prompt trans
portation of these armies may be
gleaned from the fact that, to
move merely one field army of
80.000 takes 6,229 cars, made up
into 336 trains, with as many lo
comotives and crews. And there
are over twelve times as many
men concerned in the plans we
are now working out.
"We have also been asked for
transportation to carry the 350,-
000 members of the national
guard to their training camps.
The National Guard movement
has already started and will con-
tinue in increasing volume until
all have been moved.
"Shippers a n d receivers of
freight have been appealed to by
the car sevice commissions, and
can greatly help if they will co
operate with respect to commer
cial freight, keeping in mind the
herculean task the roads are per
forming in handling this enor

An Appeal to
An earnest appeal to local ship
pers to help out Uncle Sam and
the public generally by heavier
car loading is made by H. B.
Condit. local agent of the South
ern Pacific Company.
"Our company is doing all in
power to keep the cans moving,’
said Agent Condit, "but much of
the trouble comes from the prac
tice of using a whole car to carry
shipments that only half fill it.
If the public will co-operate with
us in getting together and order
ing goods in car load quantities;
in loading their cars to ten per
cent in excees of their marked
capacity, and in loading and un
loading promptly, working on
Sundays and holidays if neces
sary, there will be no such thing
as car shortage, and the national
welfare will not be imperiled.
Mr. Condit is trying hard to
make a record for West Stayton

ern Pacific Company all over its
