The Business Outlook
'CONTROVERSY OVER RAILROAD LEGISLATION DISTURBS
FINANCIAL CIRCLES HAS STIMULATED NEW APPEAL
FOR RETENTION OF GOVERNMENT CONTROL UNTIL 1922
ACTION FORESEEN ON SUBJECT OF MERCHANT
MARINE CAR SHORTAGE IS SERIOUS HANDICAP.
GO ANYWHERE BY AIRSHIP SOON
Steamship owners in London, of
nniplo means, arc seriously planning
(Business Feature Service.)
The Congressional controversy over
most points In pending railroad legis
lation, threatening to re-open the
whole subject for discussion on the
floor of both Bouses, has caused some
anxiety In buslnesB circles. Only
about 30 days remain in which to
enact legislation. As a Inst resort
Congress might have to ndopt the ex
pedient of enacting an emergency
measure, as suggested prior to the ex
tension of control In December. Not
only would this action be unfortunate,
tending to prolong tho uncertainty
Joundlng tho roads, but it would
t to substantiate the claim of labor
farm interests, revived by the re
t split, that at least two years (un
x.v government control) will be re
quired to decide upon a wise course
and onaco protective legislation.
Motives of political expediency will
impel tho Congressmen to harmonize
their differences, as the railroads must
necessarily suffer by every week's de
lay and the party leaders would find
themselves In a most embarrassing
position If compelled to ask the presi
dent for i second extension of the
The peace treaty has been again
a bone of contention, presenting an
even more discouraging outlook: as re
gards agreement than the railroads.
If the question Is flung back to the
House and Senate, weeks and perhaps
months will elapse before the public
can' hope for a decision this in the
teeth of an aroused public opinion,
expressing itself variously, that de
mands a termination of debate.
Action Is foreseen on the formula'
tlon of a judicious policy governing
the new merchant marine and the
governments participation in the con
struction nnd operation of ships. The
Senate committee on Commerce has
begun hearings. Conclusions w,lll be
long delayed. Meantime the ship
ping industry will suffer, like the
railroads, from uncertainty.
, The car shortage has been serious,
especially in parts of1 tho middle west
and north west and moro lately In
eastern coke producing regions, af
fecting tho production and distribu
tion of iron and steel, coke, lumber,
and other important commodities, and
tho crop movement. Apparently the
shortage Is getting worse, rather than
better, and If business expands will
further intensify. Mild weather will
afford some relief, but tho only perm
anent relief must come from the re
pair of old and the addition of new
equipment. This, In turn, hinges
upon a final and satisfactory dispo
sition of the railroads.
Tho further break in exchange to
the point where sterling quotes at
$3.52 or below, the German mark
ut $.015, and the Austrian crown at
$.0031 Is cause for genuine alarm in
that it denotes a continued postpone
ment of action looking toward the
distribution of necessary credits. The

SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON FOR
v FEBRUARY S, 1920:
"PETfR AT LYDDA AND JOPPA."
Golden Text: "The prayer of faith
shall save r nu that is sick, and the
Lord shall i ise him up." James 5:15.
Lesson AUs 9:32-43.
In the ancient city of Joppa there
was a disciple of Jesus called Dorcas.
"This woman was full of good works
and almsdeeds which she did." When
'she died, they showed coats and gar
ments which she had made. The peo
ple whom she had helped stood fay
weeping. This woman has been a
type of faithful and unselfish serv
ice in the christian church all
through the centuries. Every church
has its Dorcastry and its Dorcasses.
I am particularly wondering what
works of yours or mine people will
show after we are dead? If they
point to the things we secured to
satisfy our own selfish ends, they
will have only scorn for us and
no praise. It is not the positions
we hold, nor the money we accumu
late, nor the power we wield which
brings happiness to others. It is
rather the way in which we secure
these things and .the unselOsh minis
try we render in our use of them
which makes our lives consistent
and worth while.
How shall we do good deeds?
John Wesley answers:
Do all the good you can;
By all the means you can;
In all the ways you can;
In all the places you can;
At all the times you can;
To all the people you can;
As long as ever you can.
