t'lTTLE has befen heard from the railway front since Joe
I Eastman vLj appointed coordinator. Different from
many of the super-cabinet, Eastman devotes his major en
ergies to working and little time to broadcasting and inter
viewing reporters. 'And Eastman has been working. For
one thing he has been leading the roads up to the trough and
working diligently to make them drink, the fluid being new
steel rails. Eastman knows the roads need rails and he
knows the steel mills need business. If he can get both
parties together on a deal, a happy time will be had by all,
particularly the laborers who make the rails and then those
who lay them.
Eastman has been working too on reducing top salaries
oi tne roaas. Kan presidents were well paid, but not hand
somely compared with executives of steel, tobacco and food
companies. Now the coordinator has orttm mrvsf nf rhe
chiefs to try to get along on $60,000 a year as a maximum.
Smaller roads and subordinate officials will get rungs on
tne salary ladder still lower. Stockholders whose certificates
are gathering dust and not paying enough to meet the rent
lL . ... .1 a a J m
on me saieiy aeposu Doxes win ieei a lew warm neart tnroos
when they learn of the salary cuts.
But Eastman is doing more toward solving the rail prob
lem. He is moving toward consolidation of railroads in order
to reduce duplication of service, circuitous routing of traffic,
and effect other economies. Tucked away in the financial
papers recently was an item that negotiations are under way
for combining the Burlington the Denver & Rio Grande
Western and the Western Pacific. This would make a con
tinuous road from Chicago to San Francisco. The Burlington
is a strong road, one of the most profitable in the country.
It is owned jointly by the Great Northern and Northern
It is also reported that Eastman wants to reduce the
eastern systems to two : the Pennsylvania and the New York
Central, through unification with other roads.
Another phase of the railway situation Is the action of
the government agencies in breaking up the receivership
and reorganization racket. Hitherto this has been nice busi
ness for railway bankers. When a road got in difficulties
the bankers or board would have a friendly receiver ap
pointed, often the president of the road. After a few years
wait the bankers would prepare a new plan which would
scale down the bonds and fixed charges. Securities would
be exchanged and the receivership lifted. The reorganization
committee and the company bankers enjoyed excellent fees
or commissions. -t
Now the government, acting through the R. FC. or the
interstate commerce commission is taking steps to appoint
independent receivers; and is alert to see that heavy reor
ganization charges are not imposed on the carrier. It has
interposed in the case of the Chicago & Eastern Illinois and
the Missouri Pacific. It has also objected to a reorganization
plan of the St Louis-San Francisco on the ground that it
offered no adequate solution to the road's problems but was
just a temporary "bridge" in anticipation of better times.
Government agencies are also proposing the merger of the
Rock Island and the Frisco, both bankrupt now, and both
being grouped together' in the merger plan.
The railway legislation at the last session was admittedly
temporary and partial. More thorough going legislation is
needed to put the roads on a sound basis and to enable them
to compete more successfully with other forms of transport.
Perhaps Mr. Eastman can coordinate successfully; but the
chances are that much more drastic legislation will be re
quired. The roads have not been earning their keep. Dole
financing is only a temporary palliative. So we may expect
the railroad question to come up again at the next session
What Do We Use for Money?
ONE VERY stout string seems to be attached to the gov
ernment loan-grant of $1,500,000 to the city of Salem
for waterworks purposes. That is the stipulation that none
of the money may be used to purchase the plant of the Ore
gon Washington, Water Service company. Such being the
case the city either have to sell other bonds or else make
a dicker with th$ company to trade bonds for their interests
here. i '
Since the city bonds are selling at a discount (present
quotation being around 88 retail for 20-year 5's) the citv
would have to tender additional bonds over the agreed cash
price, enough to absorb the discount. Whether such a deal
can be worked out remains to be seen.

was not self supporting, and he
