made by Clifford Thorne, of the Iowa
State Board of Railroad Commissioners,
before the Interstate Commerce Commis
sion, that the maintenance expense no

Juggled, were reflected In a statement of
revenues nnd expenses on 171 railroads
doing n business of $1,000,000 ft year Is
sued by the Interstate Commerce Com
mission today. , '
Tho report shows for tho month of
September' the' operating revenues
amounted to $233,401,118 nnd operating ex
penses $16,014,203. For the same month
In 1913 the revenues amounted $280,

Tho statement shows the nllons
ndvanced by attorneys In tl islorn
rate caso, that while railroads i 1914
may- show a decline In operating reve
nue, there wns likewise a decline In ap
propriations made for the maintenance
fund. In good business years, they as
serted, tlio maintenance fund was en
larged to offsqt tho net' revenues.

DISMISS $14,000,000 SUIT
AGAINST FRISCO DIRECTORS
Action Brought by Receivers In Bt.
Louis lo Withdrawn.
ST. LOUIS, Nov. H.-Sults tiled by re
ceivers of. the St, Louis and San Fran
cisco Railroad to recover $14,000,000 from
directors nnd former directors of tho
road were dismissed In the Federal
tjourt. The dismissal Is part of tho plan
of tho receivers to disclaim liability of
the railroad on a $26,000,000 bond Issue of
the New Orleans, Texas and Mexico
Loomls Johnson, attorney for the re
ceivers, announced tho dismissal of tho
suit would not preclude the filing of n
similar suit, which might be rellled after
tho liability of tho Frisco on tho $26,
00000 bond Issue had been determined.
Afi the receivers desire to contest the
liability of the $26,000,003 bond Issue, they
fit to do this effectively they should dis
miss tho $14,000,000 restitution suit. The
receivers could not consistently allege
tho road was not liable for tho bonds If
they contended the officers of tho road
hat4 exceeded their authority In making
the purchaso of tho St. Louis, Browns
ville and Mexico road, which Included a
guarantee of tho bond Issue.
If tlio bond Ibsuo wero Illegal, there
whs nothing to restore to the Frisco on
tbaj part f the directors.

In a circular sent out to farmers nnd
'business men In the cotton States, tho
United Statc3 Department of Agriculture
urges cotton farmers to grow their own
food. Instead of attempting to obtain
through cotton the money required for
necessities. In Borne sections of tho
South, thousands of small farmers are
said, to bo facing actual hunger, this
winter through tho falling off of the
Tho Department urges the farmer to
grow cotton nnd devote some of his at
tention to the raising of garden truck
and cattle, hogs and poultry. This would
prove a remedy for the overproduction of

the real value of diversified farming bo
onco thoroughly understood the cotton
acreage will be reduced In a natural and
healthy manner. It is stated.
FIRST COTTON FOR GERMANY
Philadelphia Vessel Reported Ready
The first cargo of cotton to be shipped
to Germany under the agreement with
a rent Britain not to Interfere with such
shipments, most likely will be carried In
the PhlladtHphla-owned steamship Caro
lyn. It was rumored today that the ves
sel had been chartered to carry bales
from Savannah to Bremen.
Underwriters holding policies on the
hull of the Carolyn have consented to the
voyage at an advanced premium rate.
What the rate will bo Is yet to be deter
mined. Vital Interest Is attached to this
shipment, as It will mark the real attitude
of Great Britain In permitting cotton to
be shipped directly to Germany.
The Carolyn, which has been used
chiefly In the coastwise trade. Is of 1411
tons net register. She Is owned by the
Johnston Steqmshlp Company ot this
She will probably be the first steamship
from this country to enter a German port
