My dear Judgo Chambers May I not
cpiess my veiy deep and sincere In
terest In your efforts to bring tho rail
road executives and tho brotherhoods en
gaged In train operation to an agreement
that there shall be no Interruption In
their ic-latloiis on either Eldo until ample
opportunity shall havo been afforded the
I'nlted States Board of Mediation and

nn nmloable agreement, and that In the
event ot failure to bring about such nn
agreement any controversy that inayjiavo
arisen will be submitted to arbitration In
accordance with the provisions of the
New-lands law? X take It for granted
that your efforts will succeed, because It
Is Inconceivable to me that patriotic men
should now- for a, moment contemplate
tho Interruption of the transportation
which U so absolutely necessary to the
safety of the nation and to Its success in
arms, as will as to Its whole Industrial
life; but I wanted, nevertheless, to ex
press my deep personal Interest In the
matter and to wish you godspeed.
The last thing I should wish to con
template would be the possibility of being
obliged to take any unusual measures to
operate the railways, and I have so much
confidence that the men you are dealing
with will appreciate the patriotic motives
underlying your efforts that I shall look
forward with assurance to your success.
The brotherhood chiefs who will be pres
