Emergency Measures Taken by Ad-

A greater volume of business is
now being handled' by the railroads
of this country than ever before dur
ing normal times, according to a
statement issued yesterday at Chi
cago by Walker D. Mines,' director
general of the railroad administra
tion. The statement of the director-
general was contained In a telegram
received yesterday by J. P. O'Brien,
federal manager of railroads in the
Portland district. '
The report likewise states that the
shortage of cars is not so serious as
heretofore, while especial care is be
ing taken to handle wheat and coal
shipments. Despite the heavy busi
ness of the carriers, their capacity
should be greatly enlarged, Mr.
Hines says, but any extensive pro
gramme along this line could not be
undertaken by the railroad adminis
tration at this time, because the ad
ministration has not been provided
with sufficient funds.
The statement received by Mr.
"The railroads of the country are
now doing a heavier business for the
present season of the year than was
ever done in the history of the rail
roads of normal years, and practically
as heavy business as was done at this
season, 1918. which exceeded all pre
vious records. They have more cars

Car Situation Improving.
"While the bad-order car situation
was greatly embarrassed by the ex
tensive strikes among shop men Ln
August, the percentage of order cars
is now rapidly improving. There was
an increase of 52.456 cars in service

October 4; 12,11 j of this" increase were
added in the one week ending Octo
"Though the freight business is prac
tlrally as heavy as this time last year,
the railroad administration in per
forming that business is unavoidably
deprived of many exceedingly import
ant aids which it was able to utilize
last year. One of these is the zoning
of coal, which last year compelled
consumers to take their coal from
nearby mines and thereby greatly in
creased the efficiency of coal trans
portation. This advantage has neces
sarily been lost, because coal zoning
was terminated last winter. Another
is that last year there was much
heavier loading of many important
commodities than it has been possible
to secure this year, and the result
is that under existing conditions more
cars have been, used for the same
amount of traffic than were used last
jear. There are various other Im
portant respects in which traffic was
controlled in the Interest of the war
last year, so as to get the maximum
results out of rail transportation, and
with the return of peace conditions
and the resulting insistence of pub
lic sentiment upon release from war
time rest rict ions thAHA nrivantap.i
hflVA hoon loot '
'The fact that there Is still a short
age in rail transportation is due to
conditions that the amount of husi
ness offering is far in excess of the
transportation facilities of the coun
ry. This has always been true is
his country, in times of heavy liusi
ness In the autumn months, except
last year, when the matter could be
and was controlled with- an iron
hand, with a view solely to war
necessity. At the same time, rail
road facilities have nor expanded to
he extent required in the public in
terest. Even prior to the war, rail
road facilities were not equal to the
ernands. During the war, the addi-
ion of new facilities was greatly
restricted by scarcity of material and
labor. Since the war, it has been im
possible to enter upon or carry out
ny extensive programme for en
largement of capacity, because of the
ncertalnty as to the values of the
railroads. The railroad administra
tion was not provided with the money
nd therefore could not originate or
carry out any such programme. The
railroad companies, in view of the
ncertainty, were unwilling to pro-
ide money. The result is the rail
road facilities of the country are de
cidedly below what the traffic de
mands. Nevertheless the maximum
raffic is being handled, and this is
being done with less shortage of
transportation than manifested itself
at time of the pre-war period.
Coal Transport Assured.
Particular attention is being paid
by the railroad administration to the
urnishing of necessary equipment
for the transportation of coal and of
rain. It was decided early in Sep
tember that, in order to meet the coal
requirements of the country, it would
be necessary for the railroads to move
a minimum of 11,000,000 tons of bitu
minous coal a week. For the week,
ending September 13 11,044,000 tons
were transported. For the week end
ing September 20 11,248,000 tons were
transported, and for the week ending
September 27 the railroad adminis
tration estimates that approximately
11.575.000 tons were transported.
"Conditions have developed which
have made it necessary to handle the
wheat situation in an emergency way
This situation has been complicated
by the fact that many of the elevators
are full, and it has been impracticable
to move additional wheat to points
where the elevators are full because
to do so would cause large numbers
of railroad cars to be filled with grain
which could not be disposed of at des
tination, and this would result in
practically taking such cars out of
the transportation service ana using
them for storage, and depriving the
public generally of cars which are
badly needed 'for business of every
sort. The railroad administration is
following this matter very vigorously
In consultation with the grain cor
poration, and the director-general
will consider the matter personally
at a meeting of interested railroad
officers, representatives of the grain
corporation and others, to be held at
Chicago this week.
"As to the situation in Texas, where
the wheat conditions are particularly
acute because the crop is approxi
mately 25.000.000 bushels larger than
last year and where there is a scarcity
of local storage facilities, arrange
ments are being made through the
grain corporation for the sending of
additional cargo vessels to uaiveston
and arrangements have already been
made for increasing the number of
permits for carloads of wheat into
Galveston from 50 to 100 per day. Par
ticular efforts are being made to
move wheat which is on the ground
and is thus exposed to the wea'ther."
