Head of Railway Executives'
Advisory Committee Out
i lines Remedial Plan.
Centralization ol Regulation. by Fed
eral Commission Suggested as
Measure as Important as
Federal Reserve Act.
LOUISVILLE. Ky., Jan. 10. Frank
Trumbull, chairman of the railway
executives' advisory committee and
chairman of the board of directors of
the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway Com
pany, at the annual dinner of the
Louisville Transportation Club tonight,
appealed for the co-operation of the
American people in solving the eco
nomic problems confronting the rail
roads. "They have," he said, "the oppor
tunity to accomplish the most Impor
tant piece of work since the passage
of the Federal Reserve banking act."
He asserted the greatst conomic
problem the country faces is its trans
portation problem, the solution of
which "will require the intelligent and
unselfish co-operation of all the many
Interests involved."
He declared it was the people's prob
lem "just as vitally" as it was the
railroads' problem, and the previous
policy of the public of considering the
railroads as something "from which
they might properly wring the last
possible ounce of service at the lowest
possible cost has had but one effect
which today is glaringly apparent.
"Today, even'after the most prosper
ous year in their history," Mr. Trum
bull said, "we find the railroads ut
terly unable to meet the demands of
Returns Less Than 6 Per Cent.
"Railroad efficiency has been seri
ously impaired and railroad credit in
jured so that the business of the whole
nation is suffering from the lack of its
fundamental need adequate transpor
tation. To this statement doubtless the
railroad critic would reply that dur
ing 1916 the railroads earned more
than a billion dollars net the great
est sum in their history. This sounds
impressive, but it shows a return of
less than 6 per cent on the railroad
property devoted to the use of the
public And in the face of a constantly
rising cost of labor and material this
margin of earnings is bound to de
crease." Meanwhile, according to the speak
er, one motor company in 1916 had
earned 3000 per cent on its capitaliza
tion, while scores of other corporations
had earned 50 per cent and more on
.their common stock. In their invest
ments, he said, the "American people
had returned an obvious answer
whether they would place their mon
ey in "unregulated private businesses
showing such returns or in the over
regulated railroad business with Its
many uncertainties and relatively
meager returns."
Remedy la Outlined.
Turning to the question of a rem
edy. Mr. Trumbull said:
"Upon the suggestion of President
"Wilson that the time had come to
discover if present methods of regula
tion could not be improved on. Con
gress has undertaken through a joint
commission of the Senate and House to
make inquiry into this whole trans
portation problem. Under 'the direc
tion of the committee, of which I am
chairman, about 90 per cent of the Im
portant railroad lines of the country
will present their suggestions for the
committee's consideration.
"Briefly, they provide for Federal
supervision of railroad, securities; Fed
eral incorporation of interstate car
riers; Federal regulation of rates; a
regional and functional division of the
work of the Interstate Commerce Com
mission; restricting rate suspensions to
not more than 60 days, and giving the
Interstate Commerce Commission pow
er to prescribe minimum as well as
maximum rates.
"It is the belief of the railroad -exec
utives that if the railroads can be re
lieved of the inefficient regulation of
48 states and the Federal body and
this regulation be united under one
head with regional subdivisions that a
Kreat part of their present difficulty
will be removed. On this platform the
railroads have taken their stand and
ask for the co-operation of the people
because the business of this country
ran prosper only as it is adequately
served by efficient transportation.

Supreme Court Judges Display
Lively Interest and Ask
Many Questions.
Right of Congress to Regulate
Wages as It Does Rates Main
tained by Sir. Haserman.
Argument Lasts 3 Days.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 10. Final argu
ments were heard by the Supreme Court
today in the case testing Constitution
ality of the Adamson act, with members
of the court continuing to display
their extraordinary interest by fre
quent questioning of counsel.
A decision la expected within a few
weeks, although summary action on
the important issues - is not deemed
probable. February 26 has been men
tioned as the possible date for the de
cision as the court reconvenes that day
after recess of three weeks to prepare
Three days of arguments were con
cluded this afternoon. The closing ad

'It's done by the Interstate com

said Mr. Hagerman.
There's no claim ' that this law is

Justice Pitney asked if Congress had
power to regulate the price which rail

I want to know if 'there is Any

lic regulation?" said Justice Pitney.
"Can Congress force men to work
against their will for wages they may
not be satisfied with?"
Mr. Hagerman emphatically gave ma
Individual opinion that Congress has
powers to enact compulsory arbitration
legislation, "if necessary for the move
ment of trains."
Workman and Cars Compared.
That railroad workmen are Just as
much a part of 'transportation as cars
or locomotives was contended by Mr.
Hagerman, saying:
"If this court can say that the wage
of the man who makes possible, the
movement of trains has no real or sub
stantial relations to commerce, then
my words are without erfect. a he pay
of men has a direct bearing on ef
fectuality of transportation."
'Can Congress fix tne price or cross

The attorney replied tnat moments
In actual movement of trains were

"The question of ties is lust a de

gress has the right to remove or pre
vent obstructions of commerce, whether
by- compulsory arbitration- of a strike
or the bold threats of carriers last
September to stop carrying freight in
anticipation or a strike.
Public Interest Cited.
In the interest of efficient and safe
transportation, the attorney argued,
the public has an interest in employes
receiving an adequate wage.
"The public has an interest in re
ducing expenses: hasn t it? ' asked
Justice Pitney. "Is it your view that
Congress go so far as to appoint rail
road officers and directors?"
"If a carrier abuses its trust. Mr.
Hagerman answered, "and doesn't per

Regarding the power of Congress to
prevent strikes. Justice McReynolds
"Is there no limit in what Congress
can do to stop a strike? In the Debs
case could Congress have ordered the
railroads to pay Mr. Debs $50,000 to
stop a strike?
"That s putting it pretty fierce, but
I believe Congress could." Mr. Hager
man answered.
Case Closes Amid Laughter.
"Oh, you don't mean that," Justice
Vandevanter interjected. "That minim
izes and detracts from everything you
have said.
"I think," suggested Justice Holmes
to the attorney, "that you are very
wise in dealing with this question to
be precise and not consider the degree
the matter can be pushed.
In arguing that the law was work
able, Mr. Hagerman pointed out that
the railroads had admitted It by agree
ing to keep separate accounts after
January 1 to insure prompt payment
if it were withheld.
Asserting that the railroads "need
not be afraid of the United States," and
turning to the railroad lawyers. Mr.
Hagerman closed by quoting, amid gen

hymns as follows:
" 'While the lamp holds out to burn,
the vilest sinner may return.' "
