Dearth of Empties on B&O ,
May be Experienced Here
Monongahela Has Fair Run,
Hamilton Co. Opens
Clarksburg Office.
Owing to the transportation tie op
the yards and mine sidings are becoming
more and more congested and
today it was reported that there were
2,800 eastbound coal loads accumulated
on the Monongab division of the
Baltimore and Ohio railroad. The
movement 01 ocai east nas oeeu greatly
restricted owing to the general tie
up on the Cumberland division, which
is becoming more and more acute.
East of Grafton yesterday the B. &
0. railroad drew but 20B loads and
this was not all commercial coal, perhaps
seventy-five per cent being fuel.
There are 550 coal loads accumlated
at the Fairmont yards and 500 loads
at Grafton. Mine sidings are being
Jammed with loaded coal cars, but
not sufficient to interfere in most
cases with the daily loading.
While the car supply has been far
from Ideal on the Baltimore and Ohio
railroad, it is very much better than
had been anticipated under the conditions
that the railroads are struggling
with. Today there are 111
mines idle on the division and many
of the larger coal companies in the region
appear to have few if any cars.
JUL' impressiuu la uiai me lUlm emie
are probably more numerous today
tban usual, which is probably true, as
the railroad fuel shipmets are usually
heavier on Friday and Saturday than
any other days of the week. Of the
coal moving east, it appears to be
chiefly railroad fuel shipments which
are given the rlgth of way.
The outlook for cars on the Baltimore
and Ohio railroad on aSturday
are very slim. This morning there
were but 80 cars in sight. The indications
are that the bulk if not all of
the acrs on aSturday will be assigned
cars for railroad fuel loading. Unless
the supply increases during the day
the shortage will be most acute.
Western Movement of coal on
Thursday totaled 134 carloads, or
just ten cars heavier than on Wednesday.
The railroad officials say that
the movement is progressing nicely to
the lakes, although it is believed from
other sources that tie up is apt to occur
at Holloway almost any time.
Car supply on the Monongahela
railway in the West Virginia district
is about sixty-five per cent and the
assigned cars are fewer than usual.
There are no cars along the Western
Maryland branches in this region
Daily Car Supply.
Cars on the Monongah division of
the Baltimore and Ohio railroad today
total 525 cars and the early
morning placement was 469. The cars
are classified as follows: Open, 474;
coke, 36; n. e. c. x., 10; M. V. T., five.

(By Associated Press]
SAN FRANCISCO, June 23.?First
guns of the Democratic National convention
were to be fired today when
the National conunittee met to draw
up the temporary roll or delegates.
Three contests have been called to
the committee's attention hut only
one of them that involving efforts to
give Senator Reed of Missouri a seat
with the delegates from that state
promised more than routine interest.
Only one contest, that from Georgia,
has been officially filed with the com
The Georgia contest results were
expected by party leaders to be settled
in favor of delegates la sympathy
with the candidacy of Attorney General
Palmer for the presidential nomination.
An effort to place Senator
Hoke Smith on the floor of the convention
was expected and becanse of
his attitude toward the administration
during the senate battles over the
peace treaty it was said to he possible
that strong resistance would be
met before the committee.
The first contest from Oregon was
not regarded as a serious case and
might not materialize at all

two matters that have ben in a nebulous
stage since the first Democratic
leaders arrived here,to ba approaching
more definite shape These were
the mysterious ami persistent boom

the conflict as a prohibition enforcement
plank in the platform.
McAdoos' adherents were said early
today to be shaping their plans to
withhold his name from the balloting
throughout the early stages.
They have learned that the former
secretary of the treasury still has
strong following, but are said to feel
that in view of his attltunde it would
not be expedient to present his name
unless the expected deadlock between
the leading candidates and Governor
Cox of Ohio should develop.
In that event ther apeared to be
little doubt that McAdoo would be
put forward to break the blockade
with the assurance of considerable
strength at the start.
