Herrick Says Giv ing Railroads To Them Is 4'fl' Too Autocratic jf* K\ r?Al UH »»§t$t^ V'f- a. iv \f iii» i.i Cleveland, O., Aug. 20.—Myron T. Herrick of this city, member of the executive committee of the National Association of Owners of Railroad Se curities, declared in a statement to day that the turning over of the vast system of railroad lines to the control of the government, and through the government to the con trol of organized labor, would be a long step toward the establishment in 'this country of an autocratic power that would imperil the liberties of the American people." Mr- Herrick, who was formerly gov ernor of Ohio and American ambassa dor to France, is a banker, director of the Erie railroad and of the New York Life' Insurance company. Mr Herrick asserted in his state ment that "the experience of the last two years with the railroads, as with the telegraph and telephone lines, Is ample proof that there is neither ef ficiency nor economy In government control. He said that such control and operation would defeat the pur pose for which the railroad brother hoods were established, and that It would involve a huge addition to the public debt, as the value of the roads wai estimated at $17,000,000,000. Referring to the agitation by rail road employes through the officers of their organizations In favor of gov ernment ownership of the roads, Mr. Herrick said: "This propaganda will not be fa vorably received by the people of this country, who. as always, must pay the bill The deficit incurred in less than two vears of federal operation is al ready more than $500,000,000, and is mounting at the rate of $2,000,000 a day In spite of sharp Increases In ADVERTISEMENT. Cocoanut Oil Makes A Splendid Shaippoo If. you want to keep your hair In good condition, be careful what you wash it with. Most soaps and prepared shampoos contain too much alkali. This dries the scalp, makes the hair brittle, and is very harmful. Mulslfled cocoanut oil shampoo (which is pure and en tirely greaseless), is much better than anything else you can use for sham pooing, aa this can't possibly injure the hair. Simply moisten your hair with water and rub it in. One or two tea spoonfuls will make an abundance of rich, creamy lather, and cleanses the hair and scalp thoroughly. The lather rinses out easily, and removes every particle of dust, dirt, dandruff and ex cessive oil. The hair dries quickly and evenly, and it leaves it fine and silky, bright, fluffy and easy to man age. You can get Mulsified cocoanut oil shampoo at most any drug store. It Is very cheap, and a few ounces is enough to last everyone in the family for months. ADVERTISEMENT.

Directly or Indirectly, in taxes, freight charges and Increase in the cost of goods, the burden of that deficit falls on the peo ple and contributes in treipiendous measure to the oppressively high cost'of living. In the face of that showing, who could conscientiously wish to perpetuate governmental con trol of the railroads? "I cannot believe the brotherhoods have thoroughly considered the con sequences that would follow govern mentor that they are prepared to ex ercise this great power, their1 pres ent propaganda is wholly at variance with the character of their organiza tions and with their long and honor able history." To add the cost of the railroads to the government's debt, Mr. Herrick said, "would weaken .the government borrowing power, depreciate further government securities, and increase the rate at which the government can borrow. He pointed out that the war had added $20,000,000,000 to the pub lic debt in two years, and that the annual interest charge alone is now almost equal to the whole annual ex pense of the national government be fore the war. "To buy the railroads and double the national debt would be exceedingly unwise," aaid Mr. Her rick. "It would simply multiply the principal and interest which the peo ple must pay." "Uncertainty in business will not cease until the railroad problem is solved," asserted Mr. Herrick. "Every delay, means tremendous loss to the country. All the billions of wealth owned by the people of the United States are to go forward or backward, dependent upon the legislation which is just ahead. A mistake will threaten the whole financial structure." Mr.. Herrick said that he believed the best plan ypt presented for solving the railroad qusetion was that pre sented to congress by the National Association of Owners of Railroad Se curities. This plan, he said, provides for a fixed percentage return to the roads, and that where a road makes a profit in excess of 6 per cent the ex cess shall be divided between the gov ernment, the employes and the rail road. In his opinion this plan pro tected all interests—the public, the shippers, employes, and owners. "The time for experimnets has passed," said Mr. Herrick. "The gov ernment has followed fads and fancies far enough. Now let us forget par tisan politics and devise a practical plan for the businesslike management of our great vehicles of commerce, giving men of experience and vision a chance to exercise their abil ities. Radical experimentation is un thinkable." SAYS FILM BAN IS POSSIBLE Seavey Thinks Prohibition ists May Strike At Movies Next By James Arthur Seavy, Managing Di rector of Association Opposed to National' Prohibition, in the New York Times. Through a voluntary spokesman, in the person of William Fox, the mov ing-picture industry has come out In the open in favor of prohibition. "What will prohibition do to mo tion pictures?" says Mr. Fox. "It will crowd the picture houses it will call for the building of better and finer theaters: it will increase the number of theaters because amusement and recreation, relief from sorrow, worry, and care are essential. With the ex hilaration of liquor gone—and, I be lieve, gone forever—the general pub lic must, be prpvided for.". In this particular, it would' appear that motion-picture magnates are governed by the same motives as the liquor magnates. One Is pro and the other is anti because of the dollars and cents that a "wet" or a "dry" nation may bring to them. Neither thinks much nor cares much about the principle of constitutional liberty which Is involved in constitutional prohibition, and neither will suffer from insomnia because the tyranny of a minority, composed of zealots and professional reformers, menace the natural and Inherent rights of free men in a free republic. But it may be well for the moving-picture people to take thought of the morrow. i*'*- I wonder if it has ever occurred to Mr. 'Fox, and others similarly engaged that their business may be practically annihilated by the same fanatics who have foisted constitutional prohibition upon the country. The§s people hope to destroy, without compensation,, all property rights involved in the liquor business, they threaten to destroy the tobacco industry, they go so far (through the "only male member" of the W. C. T. U., Dr. 'Frederick William Roman of the Department of Econ omics at Syracuse University) as to foreshadow the annihilation of the tea and coffee Industry. They have al ready brought about a censorship of motion-picture plays, they tried tcj, put through, at Albany, a bill prohib iting the exhibition of motion pictures on Sunday. Who will be so bold as to assert that some future^, campaign will not be inaugurated to wipe out the moving picture business? No one has clalrvoyancy sufficiently acute to foretell to what extrem.ee the tyranny of such a determined minority may be extended. I may add that the Association Op posed to National Prohibition holds no brief for the saloon, the brewer, or the distiller. No one officially' con nected with the association has any direct or indirect interest in the liquor business. Its sole aim and purpose are to safeguard the constitutional lib erties and personal rights of the cit izens of this Republic.

"This Tanlac Is certainly one medi cine that will do just what they say it will," continued Mr. Donahue, "for I have tripd about everything I heard of during the past three years and it is the only medicine I have found that has done me any good at all. My stomach was in such bad con dition that everything I ate would sour'and cause me to have the worst sort of gripping pains. My kidneys were in bad shape, too, and I suffered more than anybody will ever know with pains across the small of my back. If I stooped over for anything it would feel just like a knife was sticking in my back. My appetite was no good, and I was so nervous that I never got a good night's sleep. I just seemed to lose all my strength and energy and finally got so weak and run-down that I was hardly able to get about.

The meeting was the first move by the socialists in the plan to bring wo men forward as an influence for the return of prisoners, it being felt that they can arouse more sympathy than men. Herr Steucklen blamed France for the holding of these prisoners and said that the condition of the men there, was bad. He skid the men were treated well In Italy, but that In Japan they were miserable.
