"A group of children who returned to their old homes in the battle
stormed Vosges after the Germans had been driven back." Robert Minor.
-o o
New York, Nov. 26. Land and wa
ter transportation routes leading
into New York are facing greatest
freight congestion in their history.
f Situation is so serious that if New
York should be visited with even so
brief a blizzard as the one of the late
winter of 1914 the city would come
nearer to a food famine than it ever
has before.
An avalanche of freight for export
is pouring into New York's terminals
and piers. Consequently the supply
of staple foodstuffs for local cus
tomers is at a low point
The chief cause of this condition of,
affair is enormous growth of export
trade of the U. S., on which has been
piled up growing domestic business
that gives promise jof outdoing all
At the present there is five times
as much freight ready for export in
port of New York as waiting ships
can take. In and around the city
there are 50,000 freight cars stand
ing, which is twice as many as the
amount of freight car shortage re
ported from the rest ot the-country.
