WILL APPEAL TO
Railroad Presidents Will Submit
Plan For Increase In Rates
(By Associated Press.)
Washington, Sept. 8.?A commit
tee of railroad presidents will appeal
directly to President Wilson tomor
row to assist them in devising means
for tiding over the dlmcultie? they
say have grown out of the wi r in
Europe. They are prepared to lay
before Mr, Wilson facts and figures
tending to show that the war in Eu
rope has made it practically impos
sible to raise additional funds.
The president already has indicated
a receptive attitude by this tacw
agreement to the postponment of th*
railroad! securities bill until next ses
tlon to avoid embarrassir.r,* the rail
roads for increased rates, but that he
considers that he has no right to
interfere with the Jurisdiction of the
interstate commerce commission.
The conference was arranged at tho
request of the railroad men, and the
committee which is to see the Presi

tically every largo railroad in the
NO BREAD FAMINE.
There will be no bread famine in
the United States this year. The larg
est wheat crop in history has Just
been harvested and according to the
United States Department of Agricul
ture, the total production 1b approxi
mately 911,000,000 bushels; nearly
150,000,000 bushels more than any pre
vious crop produced In the United
.States. Wo have at leaat 350,000.000
bushels of wheat which are not needed
for consumption at home or for seed,.
Tho surplus production of the United
Statea usually goes to Europe, but
under present conditions, cauaed by
the European war, this cereal cannot
cross the ocean. About 76,000.000
buBhels have already been taken for
export, but most of It is being held at
the porta of Oepartun*.
Conditions across che water are not
so encouraging. vYur In Europe tends
to prevent the shipment of when;.:
from surplus European countries to
those which need Imports?for exam
ple?from Russia to Prance and a
[famine there seems Inevitable.
