RAIIROADS APPEAL TO
PLBL.IC AD SHIPPERS
Ask That Their Request for Belter
Rates Be Gieu Consideration in
a Proper Business Light.
Xew York, N. Y., June it. The gen
eral executive committee of the railway
business association, -which within its
membership, represents $500,000,000 of
invested capital and which speaks for
a group of Industries giving employ
ment to 1,500,000 workingmen and upon
which 6.000,000 people depend for sup
port, has given out a statement ad
dressed to congress, to the railroads,
to the shippers and to the public.
The appeal to the shipper asks that
they look upon the railways precisely
as they would look upon any other con
cern for whose solvency the manage
ment, not the government, is respon
sible, and says: "A going concern must
have an adequate revenue. The present
problem Involves not merely the
amount which the railroad shall receive
for carrying a consignment but Its
ability to carry It at all. It embraces
not alone the transportation efficiency
but general prosperity. We suggest to
the heads of freight paying enterprises
that they study this question at first
hand in the broadest way. By so do
ing, they may conclude that an ad
vance may be for their own best in-
The statement to the public urges
that it frankly concede to the railways
the necessity for adequate revenue and
await with patience and good nature
the findings of the commission as to
the reasonableness of proposed rates.

Champ Clark Is Going to Be

Washington, D. G, June 9. Renewed
assurance based on the result of letters
to every congressional district in the
United States, that the next house (will
be rvamocratic and the assertion that
Champ Clark will be the next speaker
were features of a statement given to
the press here today by congressman
John X. Garner, of Texas, who is act
ing as whip for the minority in the
Garner said: "We will win a great
victory in this fall's elections and the
next congress undoubtedly will be
Democratic. This twill result from the
Payne-Aldrich tariff Jaw. The demo
crats are united and the Republicans
are split. The prospect of defeat, which
grows more apparent dally, seems to
irritate the present majority. Cannon's
New Tork speech that the insurgents
ought to be hanged "was not exactly
like pouring oil on troubled waters.
Naturally in view of the impending
defeat of the Republicans, the Demo
crats are looking forward to the elec
tion of a speaker and Champ Clark, of
Missouri, is certain to be the choice de
spite reports circulated by his oppo
nents for political effect. I believe
Clark's name will be the only one con
sidered by the caucus."
