FREOUADS SHORT OF EQUIPMENT Jan. (Correspond- ence of the Associated Press) France, as a result of the war, finds itself short of locomotives and 100 001) cars, while the transporu- i tion' material that is still nominally i on the active list is badly out of re- pair. The shortage of rolling stock has become very acute lately, for the number of locomotives und cars out of commission for various defects has increased since July last by 10 and SO per cent respectively. To meet the growing difficulties in the matter of repairs, the state mu- nition factories at Lyons, Toulouse and Hoanne have, since the armistice been turned with all speed into rail- road repairing shops, The French government has long hesitated to place orders in the Unit- ed States, whore alone new rolling stock could be procured, for fear of depressing the French rate of ex- epress of tho change unduly; but the country's 'i became so pressing that orders 111 t II i iJtrUii m v; -TVJ f have now been given, it is understood an argument against it." continu-j fol.
