CHICAGO, Nov. 21.— The railroads of the entire country have decided to In augurate an era of most rigid economy, according to the Record-Herald. The plnns which have been decided will result In a decrease in expendi tures during the twelve months of be tween $80,000,000 and $120,000,000, as compared with the sums spent during the year just closing. The railroad presidents deejare. they have been forced into the adoption of this policy hi self defense. The ques tion of expenditures has been the topic of discussion at gatherings of executive officials at Chicago and in the east for the last three months. The subject was again discussed here today at a meeting of the official!* when every railroad represented gave Infor mation regarding the expenditures planned for the coming year. In the aggregate It was found that along the roads centering In Chicago the decrease in expenditures would be fully $60,000,000. The expenditures referred to are known by railroad managers as "ex tras" for side tracks, new engine houses and the betterment of road bed and track. The reasons assigned by the railroad men for this move in economy are In creased demands of labor, which will cost 'the railroads between $80,000,000 and $100,n00,000 In excess of wages. paid last year; Increased cost of all supplies and materials: scarcity of labor, mak ing It almost impossible to secure men for extension of old lines and the con struction of new: inability to get sup plies promptly: the general tendency of freight rates, which. It is claimed, is downward, while the price of every thing else is increasing; uncertainty re garding the effect of the rules of the Interstate commerce commission; in creased difficulty in securing money to invest in railway ventures with which to carry on improvements, and con tinued public agitation which is alleged lo be hostile to corporations and to railroads especially.
