:1 THJE ' VOT XXIV -NO 58 1IARKK. VERMONT. FRIDAY, MAY 21, 1920. PRICE, TWO CENTS. A LOAN TO RAILROADS EQUIPMENT APPROVED Interstate Commerce Com mission Allows the Loan in Order to Enable the j Railroads to Meet Trans , portation Needs of the Public. AMOUNT COMES OUT OF REVOLVING FUND Other Recommendations for Disbursement of the Fund Were Made by the Commission About Two Thousand Locomotives and One Hundred Thou sand Freight Cars Are Needed. Washington, D. C, May 21. A loan of at least $125,000,000 out of the $1)00,000,000 revolving fund, to enable railroads to purchase equipment re quired to meet transportation needs of the public, was approved to-day by the interstate commerce commission. Other recommendations for the dis bursement of the revolving fund pro vided in the transportation act fol low: - Temporary reserve for claims 'and judgments, $40,000,000; appropriations for short lane railroads, $12,000,000; temporary reserve for maturities, $50, 000,000; as prohibition for additions and a betterments which will promote the movement of cars, $73,000,000. New equipment required by rail roads to meet minimum needs is esti mated by the commission at 2,000 lo comotives and 100,000 freight cars, in eluding 20,000 refrigerator cars. The commission estimated that equipment already ordered and to cost $125,000, 000 represented; probably less than 25 per cent of that needed. "It is evident," the commission's statement said, "that the equipment required properly to meet the trans portation needs of the public cannot be secured unless the carrier them selves assume the burden of financing the remaining 75 per cent." Since the distribution of the revolv ing fund by co-operative action with railroads has been proven impractica ble, the commission said, allocation of the $125,000,000 for equipment will "be made according to the percentage which the standard return of a com pany bears to the total standard of all railroads. Referring to the oppo sition to this plan by 'the National Association of Owners of Railroad Se curities the commission remarked: "New applicants seem lo appreciate the necessity that the carriers assume a part of the burden and so use the amounts advanced by the government as the basis of car trusts to "obtain the greatest benefit from federal aid." Hearings to consider applications for loans will be held here May21). The two subjects which the commis sion declared would have to He consid ered at the hearing were: The means bv which the fund of $:i00.000,000 should be distributed in order to best enable the carriers properly to meet the transportation needs of the pub lic; the means by which the fund should be distributed in order to best rn-ure that the earning power of the recipients and the character and value .f the securities offered are such as to furnih reasonable surance of the applicants' ability to repay the han within the time fifd and meet their other oblijalion. while realizing the purpose of properly serving the- public.

Constantinople, May 20 (By the As sociated Press). There are many indi cations that French troops will evacu ate Cilicia within 30 days and concen trate their forces in Syria. This would relieve a strained situation in Adana, Aintab, Ourfa and other points where Turks opposing French troops are op erating outside of territory that will be under the French mandate for Syria. It is believed the French will gather their forces to take over Aleppo for northern headquarters. Beirut des patches say a French punitive expedi tion will be sent to Tyre and the neigh borhood of Sidon to suppress attacks upon Christians. The French destroyer Bandara, which has just returned to Beirut from Sidon, reports everything quiet in Sidon. The diplomatic policy of France now is, apparently, to conciliate the Turks and Arabs and avoid military clashes. This policy has estranged many of the Christian sects in Syria, which are said to be extremely critical. Differ ences of opinion between French mili tary and civil administration are re ported to have been largely responsible for the Marash and Ourfa disasters, and many massacres of Christians which adequate military forces could have prevented. Scattered French gar risons, however, had reported to have been poorly supported and .even cau tioned not to engage in fighting unless attacked. BRITISH PEOPLE FOR LOWER PRICES TOO Cabled Reports of the Slump In the United States Excite Hope Across the Water. London, Mav 21. Cabled reports of a slump in prices in the United States are featured in newspapers here and are being read with interest, as they excite the hope that conditions across the Atlantic may be reflected in Great Britain. Some writers on economics, however, hold out little hope that this will be the result, maintaining the new conditions in America are more likely to have a contrary effect here, but hope persists and i supported by some rath er pointed indications that there was a decline in trading during April com pared with March. This decline, al though small, is regarded as significant because it was the first for more than a year. Unofficial statistics show the people are spending less while British banks are assuming a more careful attitude. Manchester reports an absence of new textile business from abroad and re tailers in many trades are said to have found they are overstocked. There has been a downward trend In some food prices here recently, and, although these are, for the most part, seasonal, the public is building some hope on the circumstances. Managers of large stores in London admit the sale of luxunes is declining and think recent extravagance is be coming unfashionable but they express dcubt whether general decline in prices has begun, or is likely to begin soon. The chairman of the textile section of the London chamber of commerce de clared to-day he regarded the American decline in prices only a passing phase of the situation and that he did not expect much alteration here.

LOCAL OPTION LAW IN SCOTLAND JUNE 1 Prohibitionists Are Planning to Launch a Campaign of Great In tensity. Glasgow, May 20. Scotland's local option act, enacted in 1913 after 30 years of agitation, becomes effective June 1. Prohibitionist are planning to launch an electoral campaign which, in intensity, cost and use of all varieties of publicity, will be comparable only to the latter stages of the anti-alcohol crusade in the United States. There will be a poll on the local gov ernment franchise in every town and district of Scotland, and out of that vote will come the choice of one of three alternatives total prohibition, reduction of drinking facilities by one fourth, or continuance of present reg ulations. Even spokesmen for the liq uor interest concede that a good part of Scotland wili go "dry." Loral option is to be exfried in fairly small areas. Tlure will be l.:t(Ml voting areas in Scotland. The electoral unit in the counties is the parifh. In the burghs, with a population of less than 25,000, it is the whole burgh; in the burghs with over 2.VHH1. the mu nicipal ward. The effect of this may be curious. Glasgow has 37 wards. Some of them will almost certainly go "dry," others will remain ss at precnt, so that while the public houwn on one side of the street may be dot-ed, thoi-e on the other side, being in a different ward, may remain open. The poll is to bo taken in November or IWembcr. anil on voting day all li censed premises mut rrniaui fliii.ee) during polling liurs.

Grand Knights Gowdey of Montpelier and E. J. Owens of Barre were both called upon to ear a few words, as were members of the fmirnsment committees and other tirominent kn'lL'hls present. Significant in these various tonics was the general aft- n nu- Ind cine nt that a field iav be rranped to take place during the sum mer month. To this meet, w hich would consist of field sports of all kinds, as well as a baseball game, members of both councils would be eligible to enter both council and their families and friends would lie invited to enjoy the dav. and all members would be eligible tn nter the contests. Sandwiched between many a good torv bv the toastmaster. Mr. Gowdey and Janus Hastings, several good top ics were discussed, though not one of the speaker failed to touch upon the plan of a field day. Thus, before the group had dispersed tor meir nuium. the fact that a field day and baseball games were to lie summer contests be tween the councils was firmly implant ed in the mind of everyone. A better evening of good fellowship could not have been given than thst whkh existed last night, and the cour tesy shown to the Barre visitors was of paramount quality, as were the ci gar that were passed. Another atich series is expected to occur between the councils next year. 0FFER CO-OPERATIVE STORE To Ludlow Manufacturing Associates Employes to Get Better Price. Ludlow. Ma., May 21.
