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.

FRENCH TROOPS MAY
BE SENT TO SYRIA
This Would Relieve, a Strained Situa
tion At Point Where Turks Are
Opposing the French.
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

FOR BIGGER CROPS
States That Food Reserves are Danger
'ously Low Home Garden Move
ment Urged.
Boston, May 21. Oovernor Ooolidge
to-day issued a proclamation in which,
after stating that food reserves are
dangerously low, lu called upon the
people of the state to raise what food
is possible by gardening and other

laited season, lack of fertilizers, seed
and machinery due to transportation
delays and a "shortage of help, are do
ing their utmost, the governor said,
adding that further appeal to the farm
ers to increase production would be
both futile and unjutft.
To aid in overcoming the labor short
age, Oovernor Coolidge announced he
would ask the legislature for' $7,500
to establish camps for public eohool
students in places where they can be
employed on the farms. He urged
school's, churches, labor and fraternal
organizations to induce the public to
go into ithe home garden movement
generally, saying "the emergency is
very urgent and every means should be
taken to meet it and to meet it now."

VANQUISHED PAID THE PENALTY.
Montpelier Knights of Columbus Enter
tained Barre Brothers.
Hatchets were buried and all disputes
over technical points concerning the
pool, billiards and cribbage tourna
ment of the m inter were securely
waxed before any member of either the
Barre or Montpelier council of the
Knights of Columbus sat down to the
banquet tables in Miller's inn last even
ing. The Montpelier Knights had lost
the winter series by the narrow mar
gin of three points, and they were pay
ing the price, of defeat by inviting all
tournament men. of the Barre council
to a banquet, the forfeit agreed upon
enrlv last January. There were nearly
100 men seated about the tables, which.
were taxed with viands thatajwere well
worth winning, aa the Barre speakers
several times reminded their .uonipei
ler opponents in their impromptu
cneeehe.
Attorney William X. Theriault of
Mnntnelier. toastmaster. had an excel
lent reserve fund of good stories, and
these be divulged in the most humor
ous manner iust "before introducing the
different speakers'. 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.
