UP RAIL BILL
Deadlock Over One Important
Question Cause of Delay
Washington, D. C., March 7—Con
ferees of the senate and house on
the administration railroad control bill
worked until a late hour Wednesday 'to
draft a final agreement. Only one im
portant question, the rate making au
thority, remained to be settled.
In lieu of the house provision giv
ing the president rate making au
thority and the senate plan authoriz
ing the president to initiate rates sub
ject to the approval of the interstate
commerce commission, the conference
took ui a compromise which would
empower the president to appear by
representative before the commission
in the suggestions of rates neded to in
crease the carrier's revenues.
Another question before the confer
ence was the matter of state regula
tion and taxation of the railroads
while under federal control.
The conferees had previously set
tled the dispute over the period of
federal operation by fixing it at 21
months after the war instead of two
years, as proposed in the house bill
and eighteen months by the senate.
Allowance of compensation to the
carriers based on net income for three
years ended June 30, 1917, also has
bee nnpreed to, as well as a provi
sion placing all short lines within the
federal system. There was no dis
agreement on the provision appropriat
ing $500,000,000 as revolving fund
for use of the director general.

Fish has been acclaimed by
scientists as the most nutritious
of foods, and the best for nerve
and brain-building. Fish that is
caught in different waters, or
different climes, tastes different,
but the best eating fish comes
from the cold countries—for in
stance the Canadian lakes.
All our fish is received direct
from the Canadian lajtes where
it is caught frozen and shipped
to us. Upon arrival the fish is
placed in our cold storage plant,
where the temperature remains
the same all the year around and
keeps the fish frozen and fresh
just as when caught. Fish that
is frozen, thawed, and then froz
en again does not make good
eating. That is why we lay such
emphasis on this pariicular

Requa Makes Statement, Declar

New York, X. Y., .March 7.—Mark
R. Requa, chief of the oil division
of the United States fuel administra
tion, declared in a statement tonight
that there is at this time no expecta
tion that the government will take
over and operate the oil fields of
the country, lie said there is ample
oil territory available to maintain the
stocks of petroleum, and that the on
ly serious problem to be considered
is that of transportation.
Thesq were conclusions drawn by
Mr. Requa following a conference of
oil men in this city to consider the
petroleum situation from the stand
point of national needs.
Mr. Requa said the heads of the in
dustry are unanimous in their desire
to cooperate with the government.
Lack of transportation proved to be
the principal basis for complaint at
the meeting. Tank car mileage aver
aged 3G miles per car in 1917, but
dropped to approximately 12 miles for
January. In February the movement
was even lbel*v this figure. The
speeding up of railroad movements
was considered most vital, and means
to bring about this result are being
considered. Tho precedent set toy
