Washington, Aug. 22. A day of con
tinuous conferences here by the special
committee of railway presidents has
perceptibly cleared the prospect for the
sdoptlon of a peaco plan which will
avert the threatened tleup of the trjna
portatlon llnca of the United Sta'tes.
There are predictions that an adjust
cent will be reached, although no
definite proposals for the solution of
the problem have been announced.
The question uppermost In the de
liberations of the railroad executives
was not whether President Wilson's
proposal should he accepted or re
jected, but what counter proposal could

the President and to the employees.

Senator Smoot began the attack on
the Administration by referring to ths
total of appropriations. Senator Penrose
said the limit of the "debauch," aa he
called It, could not be gauged by the
appropriations alone. Authorisations
and commitments must also be taken
Into account, he contended.
.Mr. Penrose had figures to show that
tho total appropriation would amount
to 1,71MS2,J22. and that In addition
authorization committing the Govern
ment to expenditures In the future reach
1636,641,97". This gave a grand total
of expenditures appropriated or author
ized at thH) session of 2.347,127.69.
Senator Penrose enumerated these au
thorizations as follows:
New appropriation bill $411,192,027
Sundry civil appropriation
tion bill 14,100,000
River and harbor appro
priation bill :,724.S0
Flood control bill 60,400.000

.Mr. Simmons declared that he had ob

as to their accuracy It was between the
Senator from Utah and the Treasury of
ficials. The suggestion that the present ses
sion of Congress had authorized the ex
penditure of more than $2,000,000,000
brought several Democratic Senators to
their feet In an attitude of violent pro
test. Senator Williams declared that
the flood control bill had passed the
House, but had not yet passed the Sen
ate and that Senator Penrose had no
right to Include It In the list of ex
penditures. Senator O'Qorman asked Mr. Smoot
