No New Financing For Pennsylvania Railroad New York, Sept. 7. Much has been heard in the financial district recent ly that the Pennsylvania Railroad Company contemplated doing some new financing in the near future, but Samuel Rea, president of the Penn sylvania, put this rumor to rest, when he told a reporter that his road has all the funds it needs, having receiv ed a loan of $20,000,000 from the gov ernment at 6 per cent. This will be a surprise to Wall Street, for it is the first time, it has been stated, that the Pennsylvania had obtained relief from the government. It would not, there fore. be surprising if it is learned that other roads have received similar aid from the government. Freight Congestion Ended, 1 Says Railroad Managers New York, Setft. 7.

This announcement was mad* unofficially yesterday in local shops of the Pennsy. Official orders, it is understood, have already been issued at Altoona shops. It is also said that similar orders will come to rail road shopmen throughout the United States. There is nothing in the report to indicate that it is planned to adopt it generally, but officials of the Penn sylvania Railroad Company believe it is only a question, of time until the piecework system will be a thing of the past, and all employes will be paid by the day or hour as the case may be. The piecework system has been in operation for thirty years. Some Men Will Get I.csa The enginehouse employes, it is now said will be paid in accordance with the provisions of the general order of Director General McAdoo and the supplements, machinists being rated at sixty-eight cents an hour as a minimum, and some of the employes will receive less compensation than they have been getting under the piecework system. However, there will be adjustments sooner or later, it is believed, and as a matter of fact, the engine washers and perhaps some others are affected by the wage in crease that was announced at Wash ington yesterday. The wages of the enginehouse em ployes vary considerably and there will be more or less variance under the new system of paying, because there are different classes of work ers employed in these departments. Enginehouse machinists have general ly made good money, for there Is al ways something for them to do and they have but little idle time while on duty. • "Sam" Hertzler Takes a Vacation, Will Lecture on the National Capital "The National Capital During War Times" is the subject of an interest ing lecture promised railroad men in the near future.

It is said his talk will be illustrated, as he has taken along a camera and will secure a special permit to take pictures for his lecture.
