Securities Holders' Counsel Before
Committfo Declares Warficld Plan Is Only Way Out. ROADS JX>NG IN BREAJ* LISK Relief Denied by Interstate t'oni mrrco Commission Because Few Linos Were Making Money?Many ' Systems Never I'aitl Dividends. j f Ht Associated Prrnn.1 WASHINGTON, August If Con-j Cross proposes to build a foundation for American prosperity it must extend; a steadying hand to the railroad.1-. I Kordney Johnson, of advisory counsel ? for the National Association of Owners of Railroad Securities, told the House Interstate Commerce Commission to- ! day. ! "If Congress does not take cour- j fiKoou* and constructive action now," i said Mr. Johnson, appearing in behalf of the Warfield percent return plan,' "the progress of a generation toward ? a well-regulated system of privately ! owned and operated railway transpor tation will !>?? destroyed and the .Sixty Sixth Congress will have forced gov- , eminent ownership under conditions; and with results which the future alone can a?.aay.'' j Only Possible llrmrdjf. Mr. Johnson contended the Security ' Owners' Association had presented the only process that would avoid "this fatal and irrovocahle step." Pointing out that In 1I?1G ninety-one railroads, operating more than SO,000 miles. had paid no dividends whatever, he declared American railroads had been kept in a bread 11 nbefore the i d<?or of the Interstate Commerce Corn- j mission since 1910, and tlut relief by | the commission had been denied or grudgingly and sparingly dealt out be. ; cause certain roads in each region 1 were thought to be affluent. "Vet before the committees of On ress and in every cane brought before the commission to advance rates," the witnebs sraid. "a vast mileage of Ameri can milways has been choked off with the assertion that average statistic* show average prosperity In all o. these cases the cornmisslon has been actuated to deny general a lief because certain roads were prosperous Jtnd the commission was unwilling to add to! their prosperity even to save the large number of roads which were receiving admittedly inadequate revenue.-' Would Divide lOli-rm DnrnlnK*. It was to meet thi- situation, he told the committee, that the Warfield plan would direct the commission to fix rates so th^?* the roads could earn * minimum guaranteed return of r< ? per cent upon capital invested, with division of all surplus over that figure' amotiB employees, th>* public and the earning road '"Tiie fundamental proposal of the Warfleld plan," Mr. Johnson declared, ?'Is that this continual I)a.-is of war fare between the shipper and tile rail roads, the constant depressing factor agninst re'.ief before the commission when relief is necessary, must be rc movfd by regulation ?>f excess earn ings wh;ch \v ill relieve shipping or ganizat. ns of tlu-;r .? ppreherision and the commission <>f the ?>?'.inm which! would Se v-.-it>d upon ? !f .tfhuent railroads were given higher rates to protect Aim-ri .in transportation from bankruptcy." "Unlj trrrpmlilr \ chicle." Samuel II )iea-?h. ji-.-Mdent of the Savin- * Hank As.-??el 11 ion of New York, told the comrnlttf. half th<- people of the Cnlted States were directly in terested in the return of th?- roads to private ownership on a basis that would afford adequate protection to se curity holders. The Warfleld plan, he Mid, was "the only acceptable ve hicle for accomplishment of this end." The only idea in the minds of many people regarding railroad securities,". Mr. 'Beach said. "Is that they are main ly owned and held by the very wealthy. They tlo not stop to consider the fart that the ma.ior portion of the liquid wealth of the nation consists of the small accumulations of the many." Pri>\Idr Sprrlil I ommH Ire.

MANY REMKDIIOS O F F K R E I> Missouri Congressman, However, Dwlarcs That All SurucsHoiis Made Will Prove Futile Because They Are Artificial. Ifly A K.soeiaIr?l F'rrns 1 WASHINGTON, August 15. ? High cost of living is the result of opera tions of fundamental and immutable laws and lower living costs will come, to a large degree, only from operation of the.se: natural laws, Senator Heed. Democrat, of Missouri, declared in an address in the Senate today. Many of the remedies being pro posed to reducc living costs. Senator Heed asserted, arc futile because they are artificial and designed to disturb operation of natural economic ten dencies. Increase in production, tin Missouri Senator declared, would be the greatest factor toward reducing prices. "There are two great principles in economics and finance which cannot be disregarded, and which no amount of legislation can effectively control." said Mr. Reed. "Kirst, whenever the demand for any great necessity ma terially exceeds the supply, an increase in price is inevitable. Conversely, when the supply exceeds the demand, a de crease in price follows. The latter condition may be temporarily effected by combinations artificially withhold ing the supply and controlling the mar ket. But no combination of men and no decrees of tho government have ever been able to transmute a defi ciency into plenty or remove the nat ural longings for a necessary article which cannot be obtained. Cilvr* n Second Theory. "Second, a radical increase in the number of dollars in circulation results in a decrease in the purchasing power of the dollar. "Any device, plan or scheme, there fore. which will have a tendency to lessen production, to discouraae enter prise or to arrest industrv will, in stead of brlogins lower prices, in crease present excessive prices by un tie rproduct ion." The war. Senator Reed said, s'opped production throughout the world, to a large extent, except for articles need ed in its prosecution. With the end of the wo.r the natural result is increased demand before production can be brought up to normal. Overlook the Obvlonn. "All this is elementary and obvious, hut in a crisis like that which now con fronts us, even the wisdom of states men is likely to overlook the obvious." Mr. R*?ed observed. "The ratse of prices in the United States has been made to all of the people of the .United ! States, all of them beinu consumers. | likewise, the benefits of high price? have been in part distributed to nearly nil of the people of the United States, for nearly all of thern are producers." Senator Heed opposed Attorney-Gen eral Palmer's request for extension of the food law. declaring unnecessary the proposed penalty for the hoarding and profiteering section. Senator Smith, Democrat, of Georgia, interjected that President Wilson evi dently did not rc-ad the whole food control act before he made his fool control recommendation- to Congress. Shipment of food to Europe was de clared by Senator Heed to be one of the principal causes of hiKh prices in this country. Such shipments, he said, deplete domestic supplies and raise i prices.
