RAIL RATES ANI
Representative Jones, of
Texas, Says Law Restrictions
Tend to Lower
Efficiency of Transportation.
To the filter. The W?"IHne<on Herald:
The aftermath of the war nas
left unsolved two outstanding eco.
nomic problems, to-wit: The transpnrtation
question and th<* securing
of increased credits and better
markets for the producer. Of
course, there are many other problems
..f much importance, but none
which compare, with these two.
The present railway laws have
manv defects. In the first place, the
Washington control of the distribution
of cars is a great mistake. Ihe
man has not lived since the
zation of this republic who can
sit at a desk in Washington ana
distribute cars over this broad, big
country without getting them into
Roads Should Control.
| When the present railway measure
was considered in the House
' offered an amendment eliminating
| the car servico section, the amendment
being defeated by a small maI
lority. As a matter of fact, this
provision should nave never been
included. The car distribution
problem should be left to the roads
themselves, so that the roads might
be held responsible, and being responsible
would. In the nature of
things. become more efficient. When
complaint is made now. they simply
j -pass the buck" to the car service
section of the commission.
Practically the entire measure is
so drafted as to relieve, in large
j measure, the individual responsi
bility of the roads and thus to
1 decrease rather than increase ef)
ficiency. and the measure is so
' drafted as to encourage rather than
discourage an Increase In rates.
| The rates are now so high that
j they decrease the traffic and thus
injure both the public and the railroads
themselves. If a merchant
I were to sell goods at too low a

Prior to the war we had the
finest. railway law* that were eve
devised in any eountry. The laws
actually permitted private manage*
ment and free development. But
the provision* of the present law
hamstring the entire situation and
require both the railroads and the
people to seek a board in Washington
every time they have unything
to do in connection with railway
transportation. Where do the people
ame in under such a system.
Closely linked with the transportation
problem Is the question
of beter credits arid market 'acuities
for the farmers and stock
raisers. I'nder existing conditions
their prices are too low. Kates arc
too high and costs of distribution
are too much.
Bouquets at Knrmfrs.
There has tteen too great a tendency
heretofore to compliment and
throw bouquets at the farmers, but
upon getting down to practical
matters, refusing to do anything to
see that tbeir rights are protected.
The success of all business and the
prosperity of all the people necessarily
thread bark to the producer.
Just now his products are stagnating
on his hands, while a hungry
world Is crying for these same articles
of food. Some of the cooperative
organisations are doing
fine work, but in order for the situation
to really be solved t^er?
must be credits and markets. There
are plenty of markets In the world
If credits were extended to get the
products to the market and arrangement*
were made whereby
those persons deairlng the products
and Who are willing to mortgage
everything they have In order to
secure them, could purchase them.
Heretofore those who have controlled
the financial credits and the
finances of this country have
thought their full duty discharged
when they took care of the commerotsJ
interests of the land. As
a mattrr of fact they have tackled
the problem from the wrong angle.
If the primary efforts were made
first for solving the problems of
the producer the relief for the situation
confronting other industries
would follow in a natural train.
VICTORY ON YAP
Thinks America Will Obtain
Guam Cable and Old
A settlement of the dispute with
Jkian over the former German
cables, radiating from the Island of
Yap. is indicated in m. letter written
to President Harding by Secretary
of State Hughes.
The letter was made public Friday
by Senator Jones, of Washington.
It was sent_to him in response
to questions he had asked
about his bill to appropriate $25.000.000
for the construction of a
The letter said "it is probable
that the United States will obtain
the cable running from Yap to
Guam to the United States, and will
have restored all the privileges of
using other cables which were enJoyed
before the war."
Private C apital Preferable.
Hughes indorsed the construction
of a cable, but suggested that use
of private funds would be better
than to have the government undertake
"The allocation of the German
cables centering at Yap has been
the subject of discussion at the preliminary
and negotiations are still
proceeding," wrote Hughes. "The
American delegates to the conference
have contended that the service
which we enjoyed in the past
should be restored, and it is probable
that the cable from Guam to
Yap will be allocated to the government
of the United States."
Must Await Outcome.
Hughes discussed the Importance
of adequate trans-Paclflc cable
service, but expressed the opinion
that extension of present facilities
should await the outcome of the
"It is undoubtedly desirable for
political, strategic and commend*)
reasons." Hughes said, "that every
effort should be made to improve
and extend the existing communication
facilities across the Pacific."
Hughes said the government
might find it necessary "to provide
certain services." But he did not
believe it wise to comm't the ffovernment
to a large outlay, pending
a survey as to the needs.

ENTIRE TARIFF BILL
MAY BE REVAMPED
Valuation Feature May Make
This Necessary, Says
A re-writing of the entire tariff I
bill at the hands of the Senate |
Finance Committee will result ifj
the American valuation feature of
the Sill is found unsatisfactory, according
to Senator Penrose, Pennsylvania,
chairman of the committee.
The committee has by no means
determined that the American valuation
syilem Is impracticable. But
cognisance of opposition has been
taken by the decision of the committee
to continue its hearings on
the valuation sections, which will |
delay the bill s eactment. and per- I
haps open the way for the tax bill
to be shoved ahead of It.
"American valuation is the basis I
of the whole bill/' said Penrose.
"It Is a complicated question, in
view of the status of foreign ex- j
change and world conditions. It is !
a task that taxes the best Judgment,
and the hearings so far held have
demonstrated differences of opinion.
"My mind is open. I intend to
confer with experts in executive
session after the hearings have been
concluded. This will necessarily j
suspend the hearings."
Penrose explained that there I
would be no advantage in conduct- I
ing hearings on rates nntil the valuation
question had been decided. I
The >earinss on the bill, he said, j
may longer than were contemplated
subsided in the days of abnormal
prosperity, and the experts pre- I
dieted at the time it might reoccur
in any period of depression. |
I do not know what causes pellagra, j
but I think the Public Health Department
is on the right track ana i
should continue its investigation I
just now, when they tell us the
disease is coming back.'
Many Similar Reports. J
"There have been so many reports
of precisely the sort which
would justify Mr. Hearon's views,
and they have come from such authority.
that it has seemed to me
desirable to take the steps which
have been adopted. These do not
contemplate any organization of relief
measures or special extension
of relief, unless full investigation,
covering the entire affected area.
shall make apparent that suet*
measures are necessary.
"I cannot but feel that if these
reports have misrepresented conditions
in any parts of the South to
the disadvantage of that section, a
full and official refutation of them
would be highly desirable; while,
if such investigation should develop
the need of unusual measure?
of relief, those could be promptly
and intelligently applied.
