Congress, Is Claim.
Questions raised by practically

of congress toward the railroads of
the whole country aa declared la the
transportation act may break dewn
unless relief or some Kind is lm

Congress plainly said that the rail.
roads of the country should earn at
least S" to f percent on the value of
ineir property, xne new Knsiand
railroads have confessed before the
interstate commerce commission they
re earning- nouunsr. aner are insist
ing that all the other railroads east
of the Mississippi should be com
pelled to give up at least SS7.frM.000
ir. revenue on freight rates to enable
the; New England Uses to meet their
The other railroads contend they
are falling by many millions to earn
the percent congress intended, and
they claim there isnt going to be
any surplus revenue to divide with
the New England group of roads.
Another Rate Raise Looms.
In fact, the eastern railroads which
include some of the most Important
lines of the country, have been so
hard hit by the sharp decline in
freight shipments since October that
they contend they are earning lea.
than E percent on the value of their
property, and a serious question has
been raised as to whether the inter
state commerce commission will not
find it necessary to award another
general increase ra zretgni rate, in
order to carry out the command of
congress that the railroads should get
at least Sa percent' on their invest
ment. The eastern railroads have further
contended ' that the New Bngland
lines ought to increase their local
frelirht and passenger rates In order
to meet the aaerganeyr but New Eng
land shippers declare tney could not
stand any such raise, and particularly
would they oppoee any increase m
rate which was sectional and not gen
eral in Its application.
Tie whole controversy hinges on
the claim of New England rands that
the interstate commerce commission
in valninir the railroads In the east
ern group included the property of
the New England Tines, estimated to

But the tHUOMM wan grouped
with all the other railroads east ot
the Mississippi upon which the Inter
state commerce commission based its
increase of 40 percent in freight rates.
Had New England property been with
held from the group it is estimated
the other railroads would have ob
tained about SiS.SSS.Ss less, and New
England railroads ask that this be
transferred to them.
ElUott Urge. Relief.
Howard Elliott, former president
of the New York. New Haven and
Hartford railroad, and now chair
man of the board of directors of
the Northern Pacific railroad, has
appeared before the interstate com
merce commission to support the New
Bngland roads. He states emphati
cally that It will be a most serious
thing for all the railroads of the
country if the New Bngland lines are
permitted to go into the hands of a
receiver, as the New England rail
roads representative here has told
the commission win surely be the case
if relief U denied them.
It is known that many railroad
concerned over the outcome of the
New England case, and while the
other railroads east of the Mississippi
do not feel like digging into their
pockets to help out the New Bngland
tailroads by permuting the divisions
of joint freight rates to be increased,
they are hoping some way may be
found by which tne new transporta
tion act but be mad. to work.
They realise that a breakdown
the government guaranty method in
one case might seriously effect the
whole structure of transportation
finance, and might oe especially sen

Public Buildings Seized By Un
employed; Situation Re
garded Serious.
London. Esg Dee. 22. Extreme
anxiety Is felt by the British people
over co sad it ions of unemployment and
in some quarters the opinion ts held
that the crisis Is more serious than
any of its prtxfeeessofs.
This pessimism is reflected tn edi
torial comment relative to govern
ment proposals to relieve distress, and
there is a fretful ten. in some com
ment which, further emphasises fore
bodings over'she pmaeets of the com
ing winter. It Is predicted that, in
spite of all aids that may be devised,
the next few months may bring pri
vations to many thousands.
There is no doubt that agitation
of the unemployed is gathering mo
mentum. More public buildings have
been seised recently in London and
local authorities generally are coming
tc a peaceful arrangement with the
men for the uae ot these buildings
during stipulated hours.
It Is the general opinion of labor
ing m.a that relief for unemployment
can be beat overcome by opening
trade with Russia.
A bill has been introduced In par
liament by T. J. McNamara. minister
of labor, amending the unemployment
insurance act. The measure rapidly
passed through all its stages In the
lower nouse.
A statement by Mr. McNamara. ad
nutted the extreme seriousness of the
situation, which, said the minister,
made the Christmas outlook the dark
est In many years. He believed that
the unemployed men were quite sin
cere in saying that they wanted not
goid. but work.
The minister announced that
special committee of business men
would coordinate relief activities
throughout the country; S4M.SSS
pounds would be placed at the dis
posal of this committee to assist the
local authorities in executing ap
proved schemes of useful work.
Mr. McNamara explained a scheme!
for the absorption or M.ooe exservice
men into the building trades In order
to expedite housing vplans.
The government proposed that
former service men should be In
troduced Into the trades in the ratio
of one in five. The government
wonld grant five pounds per man to
the trades unions concerned, two
pounds on admission and three poonda
on completion or tne training.
