FOR COAL AND GRAIN
' M !
Conditions Hive Developed Which
Have Made it Necessary to Handle
Wheat Situation in an Emergency
G. C. Ruddrn, division superintend
ent of the Southern Railway today
received the following telegram from
Wal'ker D. Hiines, Director Gerieral of
Railroads, Waohiinigiton, D. C.
"The Railroads of t"ie country are ;
now d'&iitg a heavier business for the!
prelsemt season of thf year th'an was,
even? done in thfe hlis'tory of the Rail
roads in normal years a^nd practical
ly as heavy busfiafess as was done at
this season.in 1918, wbJch exceeded,
all previous yearls.
"Theiy have more cars in actual ser
vice after excluding cars helld out of
service for repairs tlHan in 1917 or
1918. While the bad ordefr car situa
tion was grefatlly emfbarrassed by th :?
extertsivu'strikes among shop men in
August;, the perQentiage of bad order
cars is u-ot rapidly improving. There
Was" an increase of 52,456 cars ir
serviceable! condition between Aug
ust 10th and October 4th, 12,110 of
this incre'ase were added the one week
endinig October 4th.
"While the.freight business is prac
tically as Jlieavy as this time last year
the Railroad Administration in pre
forming tflilat business fs un'avoidedly
deprived uf many exceedingly im
portant aids which it was able to
Utilize laldt year, one of these is the
zoning' of coal which last year com
pelled coifoutmerfs to take their coal
from n.eanby mines and thereby
greaftily increased the efficiency of
coal transportation. This advanltaJge
has necestsarily been lo^t because the
coal zoning was tenmtinated Past win
ter. Aincfhar is that at least there
vtos mutch heavier loading of m'a.ny
important caicmydiitdes that it has
been .p'ossftbdit. ' :do, stfculve this year,
r?!gui3t is thai under existing condi
tions, more ck-s have to be used for
the same ampu-it of traffic' than were
used fastt year.,
;"There are various other important
resipedts in which traffic was ^control
led irv the irvteiysst of the war last year
so as to get tliie.mlaximum results' oii*t
of rlail transportation and writh re
turn. of peace Conditions and th? re
sulting ipisi^tijnce :pf:. public sentiment
upon release, from war time restric
tions,.the&e advantages have, been , lost
The fa?!t that there is still a short
age jn rail tirartsportatibh 'is ' d\ie to
the'conlcBtkm that the amount of busi
ness offerinsg-; is far in excess .of the
transportation! facilities of, the coun
try., This: h'ais always been true in
this .country in times "of heavy busi
ness* in. the Autumn mbnths : except
last year when the matter could: be.
and was controlled wrth'an iron han:1
with a view 'stolMy to war, at the
same tipile KaiWoad facilities have
not exp&hlded to the extent required in
the public interest. Even prior to the
war,. Railroad facilities were not
equal to the demands during the war.
the addition of1 new facilities * was
greatly restricted by scarcity of rrta
tcdiral and Tabor. Since the war it has
been impossible to enter upon or
carry out any- extensive program for
enlargement of railroad capacity be
cause off the'uncertainty as to the
status of the Railroad1. The Railroad
AdrriiWistratwn 'Was ntot provided
with" the money and therefore could
nctt cnfiginaite or carry out any such
program. The Railroad Companies in
view of the -uncertainty were unfil
ing to piw^ide ;the money, the rcsuK
is. that the railroad - facilities of the
country are decidedly below what th?
traffic' demands, nevertheless, the
maximum traffic is betteg handled and
with less shortage of? transportation
than manifested itself at times in the
pre-war period. - '
"Particular attention >s being paid
by the Railroad Administration to
the furnishing of necessary equip
ment for :the transporta'tion of coal
ar.d of grain. It was decided early in
September that in order to meet the
coal requirements of the country, it
would be necessary for the Railroads
to move a minimum of 11,000.000
" tons of hJuuiuinvns coal a *veek. for
the week ending Sept. 1'ith, lJ,046,0i)0
tons were transported,""for weetc end
ing Sept. 20th. 11,248,000 ti/iis were
transported ankl for week ending Sept
27)rh Railroad Administration esti
mates that approximately 11,575,0000
Hons weTe transported. ?
"Conditions have developed which
have made it ivecessa>y to handle the
wheat situation in an emergency way.
This situation has been_ complicated
by the fact that many of the elevators
are fuiil and it has been impracticable
to m'yve additional wheat to points
where the elevators are full because
to do so wfculd cause large numbers of
railroad cars to be filled with gtfa'in
which Would not be disposed of at
destination and this would result in
pra'citioaily taking such cars out of
the transportation service and" using
thcim for storing and depriving the
public generally of cars which are
! badly .needed for business of every
soit't). The Railroad Administration is j
fdEowirng this matter very vigorously j
in consultation with the grain cor- j
| poration and Director General will'
cons'ide.r the matter personally at a '
meeting of interested RaiHroad Of-!
f: trial's, Representatives of the Grain
Corporation, and others to be held in
Ch/jcago this week.
"As to the situation in Texas wheVe
the wheat conditions' are particularly
acute because the crop is approxi
mately 25,000,000 busTiets larger than
last year, and inhere there is a scar
city of local storage facilities, ar
rangements are being miade th:tough
the grain corporations ficr the grain
corporations for the sending cf ad
ditional Cargo vessels to Galveston
and arrangements have already been
miade for increasing the number of
permits for carloads of wheat into
Galveston from 50 to 100 per day.
Particular, efforts are being made to
miove wheat which is on the ground
arJd thus exposed to the weather.''

THE Y. M. C. A. MOVEMENT
(Communicated)
Alexandria for the last three
years has been enjoying a time of
unprecedented prosperity. Prosperity
which is ours still, and which is
being stabilized ami will abide.
There have come to us grt-a^
manufacturing: and industrial plants,
and many lesser activities; these
have stimulated the whole commer
cial and financial life of our city.
We reojice in this, but it has also
laid upon the community an in
creased responsibility. While we ap
preciate these commercial and finan
cial gains, we can hut feel the re
sponsibility of our very largely in
creased population. And after all.
the chief asset of any community is
its people, and character determines
the value of this asset.
I The most promising feature of
! our grcAvth is (his prospect of the
' establishment of the Y. M. C. A.
work in our city. For long years
our best citizens have known the
great, advantage of this organiza
tion to any community, and nave
ardently desired a Y. M. 0. A., foi
our own young people. This desire
and hope seem now about to be
realized.
It js exceedingly gratifying and
encouraging to see the business men
of our city, through the Chamber
of Commerce, endorsing a move
ment for the moral and physical
betterment of the young manhood
and womanhood of our community.
We may not he able to realiz?
fully our ideal of a finely equipped I
building, but wo can have the full
benefit of this trained and tried in
stitution.
Under the skilled leadership of
an experienced and skilled Y. M.
C. A. worker, the wealth of young
life of our city can be so developed
and trained as to make it the great
est force for righteousness and use
fulness in the civic life of our .grow
ing city.
This movement deserves the en
d( rsement and co-operation net
only of the Chamber of Commerce,
but of our citizens, without regard I
to creed or condition. Every citizen
who has bovs and girls of his own
or who has the jroorl of the com
munity at heart., or who looks f<;
better things for'old Alexandria in
the future should get hack of this
rrrm't-ment with all the earnestness
and enthusiasm that is in him. and
make this day of opportunity th:*
time when our dreams shall tome
to pass, and transmute the thin;-r
hoped for into substance and real
ity.
We are all agreed that..this is.:)
thin# we need; let ."us unitedly jr<>
after it We can put it-oyer if-.wo
will. ' ?* " i a ' _
