Washington, Aug. 21.?As one
American citizen to another, President
Wilson today appealed to eaoh of the
executives of the country's principal
railroads on grounds of patriotism to
accept his plans for averting the
threatened disaster of a nationwide
strike. He emphasized the necessity
for keeping the railroads in service as
.a part of the national defense, and to
nake possible preparations for meetin?
ponHUinr.s that will exsist after
the European war.
Oil leaving the White H<ouse th*
railroad presidents, augmented during
the day by arrivals from the West,
held a conference at which sentiment
v;as said to be against agreeing to ths
president's proposal] in its present
form. Hope was expressed, however,
that some satisfactory counterpropo
sition might be advanced, and it was
decided to turn over to a committea
the task of drafting a final reply to the
president. With more than 60 men,
most of them with their own ideac
?.bout w-hnt ought to be done, the executives
found it difficult to "get down
to brass tacks," as one of them expressed
it. Tomorrow another meeting
will be 'held, and every effort will
be made to reach a decision promptly.
Asking Too Muck?
The railroad heads still insist that
President 'Wilson .is asking them to
sacrifice the principle of arbitration.
"Elisha Lee, chairman of the national
-conference committee of railways, Issued
a statement tonight in which hie
said :
"That the railroads should grant,
iin^fvn t> tferpar <nf a national strike.
-a $50,000,000 wage preferment to a
small minority of their employes without
a hearing before a public tribunal
is inconceivable in a democracy like
ours. All questions at issue?
".ages, costs, operating conditions?
are submerged by the greater issue:
Shall arbitration be abandoned in the
settlement of industrial disputes?''
- The statement suggests, however,
that the railroads stand ready to take
whatever acion the people of the
country desire.
"While the officials were listening to
President Wilson and later conferrnig

of 640 representatives of the employes,
^ho already have accepted the president's
plan, held a perfunctory meeting
and marked time awaiting the de
cision of the employers. They said
they would wait until President Wilson
dismissed them, but stood ready
tc call a strike should the negotiations

"I will not allow passion to come
into my thoughts in this solemn matter,'*
lie said. "We are both acting as
irustoe* of g-eat interests. I am willing
to allow this matter to go to the

American citizen tc another to invert
this disaster."
The president spoke in -more intimate
fashion than he has in any S
the previous conferences. He referred
to the disastrous effect which a strike
would have "especially at this time
when every ounce of American energy
and initiative has to be mobilized to j
r eet the extraordinary situation)

The railroad executives did not
enter into any argument vith the
president, but Hale Holden, president
of the Burlington and spokesman for
the roads, promised deep consider ition
of the plan and said the officials
would seek to reacn an agreement as
soon as poss'jle.
Petitions sighed by 40,000 nonunion

of the four great brotherhoods
were taken to the "ftlhite House during
the day, making a total of 80,000 sig

A. B. Garrettson, spokesman for the
brotherhoods, declined tonight to
make any comment on the railroad
iuanagers' statement. 'Any reply to it,
he said, would be in the form of an
official statement tomorrow.
