"I notice that quite a num ber of plows have been placed along the line and they are new ones. too. They certainly did get on the job." It Is true that very stringent orders were Issued by the executives concern ing precautions against a future tie up, and for this reason the operating officers have had quite a number of new plows built and stationed along the line at places where there is likely to be the most trouble. It is understood that the board of directors was very much displeased at the way the traffic was tied up during the holidays, which was the result of Messrs. Abercrombie.
