Portland Daily Is
"Deprived" Of Credit
In a recent article In The Capital

Inadvertently presented with the an

Now, the truth of the matter Is, that
the annual cross city run Is a Portland
News event, having been Inaugurated
by that paper several years ago.

Talks With Men At
Work On Cars Shali
Be Unlaivful Soon
In ten days from Tuesoay when
Mayor Wibwn was to sign the ordi
nance it shall be unlawful to talk to
trainmen on the Salem street railway
Persons found guilty of violating the
ordinance Bhall be fined not less than
$1 nor more than $10, or spend one
day id jail for each 12 of the fine.
The ordinance was passed by the
council Monday night following a talk
by Superintendent Billlngsley, of t
Salem Street Railway company. In fa
vor of the measure. He said, that with
the Increase of traffic on downtown
streets the trainmen have all they can
attend to without talking to passen
gers, and urged , that If the railway
company Is to aid In keeping down
accident that the ordinance be passed.
Councilman- Vandervort spoke
against the ordinance. "I think that
we ought to reverse the whole thing. I
don't think we have been called to
legislate for the a P. I think it's up
to the railroad to make its own orders
against the trainmen talking to pas
sengers. The company's business does
n't belong to the council at all."
McClelland said that the ordinance
should include trainmen. a well as
passengers, . and explained that on
many occasions he had seen the vesti
bule of car "Jammed with trainmen"
talking to the motorman. He said that
it must resolve into, a question of
whether the trainmen were passengers
or employes. The matter was not clar
ified .and the bill passed without fur
ther debate.

Yesterday the railroad lines of the Southern Pacific Company were returned to
their owners for operation. As a war measure they have been in charge of the govern
ment during the last two years and two months. The stockholders in that period had
nothing to do with the management. ' - '. ''
in taking over the management of this property, the policy of the owners will be to give as satis
factory service aa lies In their power in return for the patronage given us; to seek the co-operation of
shippers and passengers and of the Whole people In having our service reasonably responsive to the
public needs.
We have to ask the patient forbearance of the public during the readjustment period of the next
six months. It is true during these six months the government continues the standard return allowed the
lines while under its control, based on the pre-war earnings. But this return Is subject to certain leg
islative directions by congress that will affect operations during this, period which ends August 31 next.
We expect, however, within this six months to mature plans for the future. These plans had to be
held in abeyance thus far because of uncertainty as to the legislative conditions to accompany the re
turn of the roads to their owners for operation, and these conditions have been determined by congress
only within the last few days. We now have to study what Is before us in law and in fact and get our
bearings anew. ' .
The operating organization as It existed under. Southern Pacific management has been to some ex
tent disarranged during the period of federal control and operating practices have been changed, but
the benefit of any new practices that may have "proved efficient in the public service during the gov
ernment control period will, of course, be retained.. ',
We could not purchase equipment after we entered the war because the government took control
and war financing occupied the field, while during the reHt of' the time the question of adequate credit
had to wait for answer in congressional action. On the other hand, the locomotives and cars in ser
vice have been subjected to the most active" use and new rolling stock has not been renewed through
out the country in normal numbers for the increase of normal traffic. The burden o extraordinary
war movements fell heavily upon all kinds of rolling stock, making it impossible to shop the equipment
at the proper time, and repair work was further delayed by shortage during the larger part of the war
period in both men and material. . ;
The problem before us al once, therefore, is how . to put to the best use the passenger train ears
and the freight cars that are in service, and how to put into good condition for service every piece of
equipment to be had. This problem is before every railroad. Abreast .of this Is the larger question
whether the earnings under the new law, the "Transportation Act of 1920", will' be enough to estab
lish the credit of the raihoads at a point where they ean provide for themselves with the facilities of
all kinds that they need to give the public proper service. We have the will if only we can find the
ways and means. These are not easy to find, for an assumed earning of even 6 per cent, and no assur
ance of that, Is not attractive to anyone having money to invest when money is worth 7 or 8 per cent In
the open market. '
Hence, the effect of the new act of congress upon earnings and upen the credit of the railroads can
not be Immediately determined: This act provides for a rate-making structure, under which, during the
next two years, the railroads will be permitted to earn up, to 5 1-? per cen annually on the .value of the
railroads as may be determined by the Interstate Commerce Commission. The Commission has power
at its discretion to increase these possible earnings to 6 per cent the added one-half of 1 per cent to be
used only for improvements to the property. . . . ' .- , ' '
No guarantee of nny kind Is given to any railroad, but half of any earnings over .6 per cent are
to be taken by the government to make loans to railroads that may need them- for improvements or to -care
for obligations falling due, or to obtain and lease equipment to the carriers that cannot afford to
buy It.
.1 - ' . .
Obviously these elements in the situation will have to be considered in making our plans. The In
terstate Commerce Commission Is the deciding body' with respect to value v( the properties, as well as
the rates which are to yield the 5 1-2 per cent return thereon, and "much will depend upon the vision
and promptness of action with which, that body accepts its great responsibilities. -
In the meantime, it is particularly desirable, in" view of the' shortage of equipment, that every ef-f
fort be made by shippers and the railway forces to eontiuue heavy car loading and train loading, and
to lose no time in loading and unloading cars. -
ISelieving that we will have the full co-operation of the people served by our lines in dealing with
the problems presented. It is due them that In thus aiding us they should know what problems we have
to meet. You ean rest assured we are not Idle with j-espeet to them."
: WM. SPROULB, President.
