j the Burlington, Daniel JWftllard of the
Baltimore & Ohio and R. S. Lovett of
the Union Pacific.
Neither White House officials no.4
the presidents would discuss the conference.*
It was said on authority,
however, that the three executives
went to the White House to receive ar?
answer to the suggestion they made t :
Mr. Wilson last night that lie gire
them more specific information as to
how the railroads may get additional
revenue necessary to take care of th?
greater payrolls that will come with
the eight hour day.
Earlier in the day President Wilson
discussed the railroad situation at'
length with Senator Xewlands and
Representative Adamson. chairmen of
the two committees of congress in
charee of legislation affecting inter
state commerce. The two chairmen
are said to have agreed that the pres-*
ident's position in the present situation
was right, and to have said that
every effort could-be expected in congress
to put through nny legislation,
which might help solve the difficulty.
Congress Might Act.
One of the means for recouping suggested
by the president to the rail
roads in his public outline of his position
was through an increase ir?.
freight rates. It "vfras pointed out tonight
that the president can not di
rectly ask the interstate commerce
commission to grant increase to the
railroads. Congress, however, mtg't
pass a resolution directing the com
mission, in view of what it considers
'an unprecedented situation, to gran*,

It is become evident that mc,.t
o* the railroads executives have come
to believe that there can be only one
way of preventing a strike and that is
by accepting tlie eight hour day plan.
The chief effort in their own conre'
ences today was to find some scheme
b;. which an eight Hour day may ue
put in operation on all the railroads
at the lesat added expense.
