Dramatic Fight Is Won for One-Cent Fare to the Legion Convention ,The long, dramatic fight for a 1-cent a mile railroad rate for the convention of the American J-epion here this fall lias hern won, says the Kansas City Star. ! Word of the victory was received by A. E. Hutching, chairmm of the convention committee. It was from the trunk lines' association. The f tc-, tion of the association guarantees the 1-cent fare from every corner of the country to veterans and their families leiring to attend the convention. , The fare is effective in connection ith Pullman cars also. Previously the low rate had been confined to per sons who would apice to ride in day oaches only. It was in the fight for the low fare for the legion convention that Com manded Ga'.braith lost his life in a mo tor car accident near Indianapolis List June. He was hurryinp to catch a train for Chicago, where he was to ap pear the next day before the Western Passenger association to plead for a low fare for the veterans reunion. The death of Commander Galbraith was a severe shock to the men en gaged in the negotiations with the railroads. He was a forceful speaker 3ind his wide acquaintance among the passenger agents of the country gave jiis arguments much weight. ' But the fight could not stop. Busi ness men of Kansas City and other cities were called from their desks and -thrown into the line like reserves. They were sent to Chicgao, New York 'Washington and Philadelphia to bring the fare tiuestion to the attention of railroad presidents and passenger aigents. Telegrams were showered on rail road managers from every corner of the country- Every argument that could be used was filed for considera tion. And when the hearings were called legion officials and business men were present to argue their case -as before a court. The Western Passenger asociation, at a meeting in-Chicago, said the bet that could be done for the veterans vas a round trip rate equal to a fare and a third That was broken down a few weeks later and the association agreed on a fare of 1 cent a mile in lay coaches. Pullman service at that time was prohibited. Next came a meeting of the Trunk Lines' association in New York, repre senting all lines east of Chicago. Mr. Hutchinirs and other legion officials and business men prepared a brief to Dresent in behalf of the legion conven tion. It carried all the arguments presented to the other associations at Chicago. After due consideration trie astem association granted the 1-cent fare and opened the Pullmans to the veterans.
