the ; negotiations are costing between
2.';mo 'and 110,000 day, it is esti
mated." There is no doubt that a division ex
ists among the railroad heads. Against
one faction, which favors "trading"
witii the- president in accepting the
eight hour day principle, is another
group' violently opposed- to' any step
that would weaken their stand demand
ing irbitrati&n on all matters. ' -
A short session attended by all of
the" two score railroad presidents was
held during the morning, but adjourn

ed the committee composed of eight
presidents nf the leading roads and
headed by Hnle Holden will continue
in session throughout the day.
Up to Railroad Barons
- Washington, Aug, 22. The question
of strike or no strike today was in the
hands of the "big barons" of the
railwav world. A limited number ot
the heads of the country's biggest sys
tems had taken charge of the situation
Their answer, it appeared, was to be
the film I answer to President Wilson's
proposal and personal appeal for pre
vention of the most paralyzing trans
portation tieup in the history of the
nation. Thev were to meet, one wnv or
the other, the president's declaration
that tiie country's imlustriul iuture
rested iu their hands.
In a secret conference nt the Metro
politan club lust night a small number
of the big liaroiis ' of the railroad
world, representing 100,000 miles of
track and 2,000,000,000 of capital, de
termined on a course of action. They
were to place it before their fellow
executives for ratification at n confer
ence this morning. Opinion prevails
that a peaceful adjustment of the
threutened commerce crisis would be
The roads are dying bard, however.
They will not yield, it was declared to
day, unless they enn trade with the
president and gain some offsetting ad
vantages, some "adequate compensa
tion" for accepting what they regard
as "a revolutionary change" in the
eight hour day. But the very fact that
many of the suinll road chiefs, as well
as a iiumlier ot the foremost railroad
executives have reached the stage
where they are willing to talk
"trades" indicates .the president has
stirred up what he termed "the im
mobile opiuion" of rnili'iiud powers.
It is known 1 1 1 1 1 1 the B. nnd O. and
the Southern Railway executives are
ready to make concessions and prsi
dent Hale Holden of the Hiirlingtou, in
whose hnmls Louis W. Hill has placed
power for negotiating for the Hill
lines, is opposed to unequivocally re
jecting the president's proposal.
On the other hand, early this morn
ing the Pennsylvania and the .New
York Central were holding out against
yielding the point of arbitration. A
majority of the great systems appeiired
to be with them.
Throughout the night lelegrams kept
pouring into the headquarters of the
executives and managers appeals from Is

Out of today's situation belief grows
that the roads will yield iu the end.
It developed today that the inside
committee of the big railroad heads
who met most of Inst night, were get
ting in direct touch lis fast as possi
ble today with their important direct
ors. They expected to be able to re
port tonight or early tomorrow niorn

'The committee is in continuous

railroader today. Officially, he hud

There is no ilonbht, however, that

May Be Settled Today
In the discussion of "adequate com
pensation" for yielding the eight hour
day the railroad executives are expect
ed to urge the president to recommend
some congressional action to unify con
trol of railroad operation. They want
the roads placed entirely under federal
regulation, emiiinting state control.
The executives arc now said to be
convinced that they can get rate in

commission and with this one of their
principal objections hns been removed.
Talk of violent opposition to any
general acquiescence to President Wil-

not to be particularly moved by Presi

of the need for moving crops and gon

"The crop in our country is ve.:y
short," Hill said.
"They're not even cutting it, muiOi
less moving it. A strike wouldn't af

actually have four or five thousand
cars idle. The only lines seriously nf
tcctcd would be those iii-ouml Pitlsbuig
transporting steel ami iron."
The last word on the negotiations
will he said by the nu.nngers' commit

together, were to call on the president,
explain Hie decision reached and tell
him they would confer with the man
