By late thin evening the TOO cars from the south, hound for points north through Washington, which caused the congestion last night, are ex pected to he cleared from the yards and on their way. QommlttM Proves Worth. The local terminal committee, not yet a week old, proved today the benefit which the commission antici pated ^ when ^ it named thirty such committees in the main "gateways" of the country's freight traffic last JiVee\.'- * tlle meeting of the Washington committee in the office ... "00,h, chairman and repre sentative of the commission, todav a report of its first decisive action was outlined. This report is said to be indicative of the steps being taken throughout the country on the part or other committees in breaking up freight congestion. Krror Thrrntenn niock. Through an error on the part of some railroad official, and through a viola tion of orders on the part of certain shippers, 7no cars from the south, over the Southern and the Washington and southern railroads, entered the Poto mac yards yesterday. These cars were destined for northern cities over the Baltimore and Ohio. Congestion in these cities made it Impossible to ?a,nJ , *?e sh'Pments. They had to be held in Potomac yards, and their pres ence threatened to tie up local facili ties for handling other freight. foon as ,he cars 'were reported in Potomac yards the terminal com mittee was notified. E. V. King rail road representative on the committee, \isited the yards immediately and is sued orders, backed by federal author ity, for clearance of the cars. Mr. Klne Reroute*.

Committee Meeting; Called. While the terminal committees throughout the country are working on their problems, a meeting of the member roads officials of the Asso ciation of Railway Executives has been called for this afternoon. Plans of distributing the $25,000,000 loan, approved by the Interstate Commerce Commission out of the $300,000,000 re volving fund, and which will be used In the purchase of equipment, will be discussed. The discussion will be in the way of preparation for the hear ing before members of the-Interstate Commerce Commission tomorrow on the most equitable plan for dividing the $25,000,000 loan among the rail roads. The special revolving fund committee of the association, which has been drawing up data on the sub ject, probably will present its recom mendations to the officials this after noon. The convention of the International Association of King's Daughters at St. I^ouls elected Robert J. Reed of Wheel- I ing, W. Va., president. INSURGENT RAILWAYS OUTLINE THEIR NEEDS Southwest Lines Ask I. C. C. for Separate Treatment From Western Classification. Insurgent railroads of the southwest today asked the Interstate Commerce Commission at the advance rate hear ing for separate treatment from the western classification, of which they are a part, and an advance in rates of 32.82 per cent. Carriers of the west ern group are asking an advance of 24 per cent. Columbus Haile, vice president of the Missouri, Kansas and Texas rail road, presented the petition, asking separate treatment for thirty-eight railroads in the southwest, with a mileage of 2S.517. The property in vestment of these roads is given as $1,597,101,909, and the additional in come needed to earn 6 per cent, as I permitted l>.v the transportation tax. is $74,432,457. Mr. Hailes stated that the sepa rate application of tlie southwestern lines was made in order that the to tal revenue derived from advances in freight rates in the western classifi cation territory as a whole may be so distributed as to most nearly ap proximate the needs of the carriers in the various sections. Objection to the application being entertained by the commission wys made by R. C. Fullbright and S. H. Cowan, representing Texas cattle shippers, because of the increase asked over the demands of the official western group. Chairman Clark, how ever. ruled that the evidence was ad missible and that arguments on the rates asked would be had later. Adjustments and requirements nec essary to produce a 6 per cent return on property investments of 185 roads and systems were outlined by L. F. Wittline of Chicago, statistician for western railroads. It is expected the carriers will con clude their direct statements to the commission this afternoon, following which there will be a recess for one week to allow shippers to prepare for cross-examination. OUTLINES PLUMB PLAN. Frederic C. Howe Speaks at Uni versalist Church. Declaring that the United States is today confronted with railroad rate increases of from 40 to 50 per cent, Frederic C. Howe, former United States commissioner of immigration, outlined the I'lumh plan at a mass meeting, held under the auspices of the Bryan Democracy Club, at the Universalist Church, 13th and L, streets, last night. "There has been a growing deficit ever since the railroads were returned to their owners." Mr. Howe said: "Ac cording to the Railway Age, it will amount to a billion dollars for the current year, which is nearly twice the reported deficit for two years of government railway operation. This ivill have to be met by an increase in rate and charges, an increase that may amount to two or three billion dollars before it is paid by the con sumer, and this does not include pro visions for wage increases. A large number of railway men and their wives, together with full rep resentation of the Bryan Democracy Club, attended the meeting. An Old Fashioned Country Chicken Dinner In the heart of th#? city.
