Weekly Railroad Fuel
Every week during the month of
September the coal -loaded as
railroad fuel off the- Monoogah
Division varied'some, but It remained
well fixed at just over the
1000 car mark. Last week It was
1029 cars,,or thirty one cars more
than the previous week.
The big end of the railroad fuel
was grabbed by the B. & 0. last
week, which secured 780 cars to
the -249 cars procured by foreign
carriers who obtain fuel from this

Only Military Matters to Be
Considered at Peace
Conference Today .
v /
(By the Associated Press)?Only
military matters will be taken up
at the conference 6f allied and
Turkish Nationalist commanders
at Mudania today, the political
aspects of the situation being disposed
of at a late meeting, according
to 'Henri Franklin Bouillon,
whose recent'trip to Smyrni
where he. conversed with Mustapha
Kemal Pasha was responsible
for the summoning of today's conference.
^The two most important
questions to be discussed todayi
he said, were the demarcation of
a new neutral zone on the Asiatic
side of the Dardanelles and at
Ismld and the evacuation of
Thrace. He was confident.that an
agreement would be reached.
Steps have been takon to have
only responsible Turkish representatives
at this and the subsequent
The fact that there Is commor
sense on both side is the best
augury for the sucess of the
meeting, said Franklin Bouillon..
"Naturally many difficult points
will- arise but there is no reason
why we cannot solve them amicably,
as the allies already have
pledged tojhe Nationalists all
their legitimate aims. The whole
question is one of form rather
than of fact." '
M. Franklin Bouillon referred
to Kemal as Mustapha Meraal, Che
victorious .and said that if he
Franklin Bouillon^was elected to
represent France al the negotiations
it was because he was
Kemal's best friend. He declared
that with certain modifications,
the Turkish leader was pleased
with the allied proposals.

3200,000,000.for equipment and w
supplies this year, RobAt I. Todd,
president of the American Elec- a:
trie Railway Association, today ft
declared in opening the organise- a
tlon's annual convention here. F
This is twice the average annua! w
expenditure ' for the last twenty ft
years, he said. ni
Reports from seventy-two com- G
panles, representing one-third of w
the- total elelctrlc railway revenue w
of the country indicates that dur- I)
lng the'current year, 21.6 per cent r<
of the operating expenses of tho hi
electric railway Industry will bs
devoted to the purchase of, ma- fa
terlals and supplies, Mr. Todd is
added.' pi
Mr. Todd continued: - D
"Reports from eighty-one ci
companies, representing about m
three-eights of the Industry's
mileage, for the first seven Si
months of 1922 show that riding M
began increasing in May, after ire
gradual decreases over last'si
year, and if the present ratio Is
continued there will be ap- ct
proximately 75,000,000 more ei
riders throughout the industry ai
this year than last. si
' 'Despite the increased number tfc
of.passengers riders hi recent pi
months on these 81 companies,
gross revenues for the seven- l
month period are off $5,526,365 A
or 2.6 per cent, owing to the H
smaller number of passengers rid 1
ing during the'earlier months.
Several fare decreases brought
the average rate of fare of these
companies down from 7.46 cent In
1921 to 7,42 cent In 1922.^Fares
generally are remaining practically
"Increased efficiency of op* J<
eratlon is reflected clearly In operating
expenses.-whicti have been
cat down 110,441,036 or 7.2 per
cent, and car miles 3,379,729 or
0.8/ per cent. As a result of these
decreased expenses .the operating
rations dropped 3.6 points, from. n
75.6 to 72.0 per cent, and net u
revenues have increased $5,526,- w
365, or 11.8 per cent The use of m
one-man cars, automatic sub-sta-.fJ
Hons and other labor saving de- ^
vices and the abandonment of {J
unprofitable and unused trackage 0
are responsible for these figures. w
Material and labor costs also have B(
been reduced somewhat duriug le
the year .materials now being 8(
about 50 per cent higher than
they'were prior to the war and tt
labor slightly over 100 per cent. ?i
"Bus and jitney competition si
still is making Inroads on receipts it
but it gradually is being put under
proper restraint.'All that the hi
industry Is asking is that buses gi
be made to pay their fair share of t\
transportation burdens in tho way bi
of taxes and otherwise controlled si
as are electric railways.
"The industry's public rela- G
tlons are better than they ever ja
have been before in history and ic
this is directly traceable to frank tl
dealings with the car rider. oi
"Tremendous financial prob- tfc
blems, however, still are before e(
us. Much new money must bo{<j|
raised through the sa\o of securities
in the next few years to
put out properties back on a pre- h,
war basis of efficiency." hi
