ing the Farmers Union county;
Representative French of Idaho,
and Professor Dale of the Uni
versity of Idaho, appeared before
President Coolidge in support of
the measure. Mr. Jewett called
the attention of President Cooli
dge to the fact that it was not
an opportunity to borrow money
that the wheat farmers needed,
but rather a price for the product
which he raised. Later these
men also appeared before the
Senate and House Committes on
Argiculture at different times
and carefully went over the bill
with those bodies, explaining in
detail just how operations would
be carried on under the bill.

Where the Railroad
Practically all the money the railroads take in is
immediately put back into circulation. Railroads do
a large volume of business on a narrow margin of
net income. Out out of every dollar earned from
operation by , the railways of the United States,
there was absorbed in 1922 by
Wages and Saloriea 44.4 cents
Fuel 9.4 "
Other operating and maintenance expences
- including'5 such items as rails, and ties,
loss and damage 25.8 "
Taxes 6.4 ''
Hire of equipment and joint facility rents.... 1.5 "
Net Operating Income '. 13.7 "
, Out of this 13.8 centsof net operating income, 12.2
tents went for interest on bonds and other fixed
charges, leaving 1.5 cents for stockholders. Adding
6.9 cents of income from outside sources, net corpor
ate income was 8.4 cents, of which 4.9 cents was
paid in dividends, leaving 3.5 cents available for
appropriations and surplus.
Gross earnings of the railroads in 1922 were $1,
567,000,000 more than in 1917. This $1,567,000,000
and more too,-was immediately paid out again, as
$918,000,000 in added wages to railroad employes
135,000,000 in added cost coal, mostly miners' wages
122.000,000 for addiional taxes
500,000,000 additional for materials and supplies
lareely representing wages
The stockholders and bondholders of the railroads
got none of the increase.
It is significant that good times prcalways coinci
dent with heavy buying orf the part of the railroads
that bad times are periods of light railway purchases. .
The Union Pacific System is one of the most import
ant enterprises west of the Missouri River. Its near
ly 60,000 employes, and their families, constitute a
buying power which is the main reliance of many
businesses. The purchases of the Union Pacific Sys
tem from firms located on the system, or which have
offies on our lines, aggregate millions of dollars each
The railways are planning to Bpend hundreds of
millions of new money during 1924 to better serve
"Our transportation movement during 1923 is the outstand
ing industrial accomplishment of the year. The waste of the
year 1920 with iU car shortages, it derangements of price levels
stoppage ef industry, probably amounted to not less than a
billion of dollars, and the American people and no economic
fabric couloVhave stood that loss that did not have a total in
come in excess of sixty billions. One great contribution to the
business stability of the past year has been the fact that we
have had a free and regular and orderly movement of trans
portation. "-From address by Secretary of Commerce Herbert
C. Hoover, January 9, 1924.
