EXPECT CAR TIE-UP
Nerfclk, Po,Ttsmcj#h, Richmond
And Petersburg Await Strike
Norfolk, Va., Oct. 16.?Street car
mct'jrrr.en var.d acnductors on the
lanes of the Vi.rgunia Rail-way and
Pcwcr Company her'e have concur
red with employes of the same com
pany in Petersburg and Richmond
?in> ve'ting to .go ion strike in the
event that the traction company
refuses to arbitrate wage demands.
Officials of the traction company say
they will not submit the demands
to arbitration unless the board of
arbitration also has ,power to fix
car fares. Since the power to fix
?car fares cannot be delegated to a
.board of arbitration, the cities of
/Norfolk, Portsmouth, Richmond and
Petersburg are preparing for the
strike, which is considered unavoid
able.
The mctormesv and conductors arc
now getting a wage of from 41 to
tr. 4.1 cents an hour. They arc de
?manUing a "v\Jagc of ,r>0 to (>0 cents
an hour. Their action in voting to
'strike if their demands for arbitra
tion are refused is a repudiation
of an agreement made between the
traction ompany and the union July
p last and further confirmed when
it was amended Seip'temiber That
agreement fixed the present wage

BopdS- and; Victory Notes during
)l?ip L two years was due in no .-minll
pleasure to the patriotic co-operation
of the banks. They took a most ac
tive part in each of the loan cam
pa inns.
They subscribed generously f"?r
themselves, made loans to their cus
tomers in order that they might buy
bonds, and sold bonds on installments
to accommodate those having small
savings, in other words, the banks
did everything possible to promote the
sale and distribution of government i
securities.
The banker can render an equally j
great service in reconstruction by co- i
operating with the government in its
movement, to teach the people of rhe
United States the lessons of sound fi- |
nance and wise investment. In pro
moting this cause the banker will aid
his institution and the financial sit
uation in general at the same time. j
Xow that the war is over the peo
ple should be impressed with the wis- !
dom of holding their government se
curities and also of purchasing more,
from time to tima. The more gener- j
ally the people of the United States
absorb government securities ~-tha
greater will be the ability of the com
mercial banks to devote practically j
all of their resources to furnishing i
adequate credit to the commerce end i
industry of the country.
Providing short-time credit to com- !
merce and industry is their normal j
peace-time function. The sale and ;
movement of farm crops, mannfac- j
Hired products and other commodities, i
as well as the continuous and efficient j
employment of labor, in fact, the wnnls I
industrial process will be promoted by
permitting the commercial banks to
devote all their resources to this
function.
The people of the United St.ite3
r.hould. therefore, be encouraged to
pay.off their installments and borrow
ings on bonfi collateral as rapidly as
pc.ssihle. and also to purchase aidi
tiona! government securities as is
sued from time to lime or in the mar
ket. If this is done the people of this
country will be benefitted in a two
fold way. They will free material arid
labor for the production of commodi
ties which are now so desperately
needed the world over. At the same
time they will be strengthening them
selves financially.

LINER ABANDONED AT SEA

139 Passengers And Crew of French
Steamer Rescued
l>7ew York, Oct. 16.?A wireless
message was received yesterday by
the lccal agents of the French liner
from the car-tain cf the steamer
Chicago saying that he had en
board 19 first class passengers, 18
second anld 102 third, rescued from
the Fabre Liner Venezia, which was
atsndened en fire in midocean, The
Chicago also carries 15 officers and
1-10 men of the crew of the Venezia i
?nd 100 sacks of mail. She is due
Vo deck here on Saturday.
> The firs't nc.ws of the -disaster to
?Jibe Venezia came in a wireless mes
?;.?.^e fr'c.m the Niagara, of the
French line, saying that the vessel
bad taken eff the crew of the burn- '
ing steamer, but making no men
tion of passengers.
? The apparent discrepancy is ex-'
plained by the French line agents !
as probably due t< the fact that J
the Chicago and Niagara reached )
ti e Venezia at the same time and t
that the major portion of those res-'
ii were taken on boai'd the* Chi- |
