Ad M A Full Line of safety, but wo are also regardful of the interest of thoso by whom the great in'oiierlios are owned anil glad to avail ourselves of the experience and trained nbillty of those who have been managing them. It is necessary thai the transportation of troops and of war materials, of food and of fuel and of everything that Ib necessury tor the full mobilization of the energies anil resources of the country, should bV firnt considered, but it is dearly in the public interest also that the ordinary activities and tho normal industrial and coinVnercial life of tho country should bo interfered with and dislocated as,little as possible, and the public convenience ot tlie private shipper will bo as carefully served and safeguarded as it is possible to serve and salcguard in the present extraordinary circumstances. Must Be Given Guarantee "While the present authority ot the executive .suffices for alljjurposes ol adniinistratio� and while, of cour.so, all private interests must for the present give way to the public necessity, it is, I am sure you will agree with mo, right and necessary that the owners and creditors of tho railways, the holdor.s of their stocks and bonds, should receive from the government an unqualified BURrantco that their properties will bo maintained throughout\fhe period of federal control in as good re pair and as complete equipment as at present, and that the several roads will receive under federal management, such compensation as la equitable and" just alike to their owners and to ,tlie general public, 1 would suggest the available n^t raihVay operating income of the three years ending June 30, 1917, I earnestly recommend that these guarantees bo given by appropriate legis lation and given as promptly as clr- cumstancea permit. I need not point out tho esBojitlal justice of such guar-anteos and their groat inflnonci; and Hlgnlticnnco as elements ih tlio present �tinairclai and Industrial sltuallon of the country, fndood, one of tho strong arguments for assuming control of the railroads at this lime is the finanolfll argument. It 1^ neccasnry that tho valuea of rallwjiy securities should bo Justly and fairly protected and that tho largo financial opci'ations every yonr noceH.sary In connection with tho inalntonanco and opnrallons and de-volopmonts ot the roads, siioufd, during the period of tho war, be wisely related ;o tho financiall)poratlons ot tho government. 0,ur first duty la, of course, to connorvo the common interest and tho common safely and to make certain that nothing stands In thu way of the Huccessful prosecution ct tho great war tor liberty arid justice, but 11 la an obligation of public conscience and of jjubllc honor that the private Interests we disturb should bo kept aato from unjust Inquiry, and II of the utmost consequence to tho govornmont Itself that all great fln-ailclal operations, should hd stabillzod anil co-ordinated with tho financial op-rations of the govornmcnl. No borrowing should run athwart the borrowings of the federal treasury, and no fundamental Industrial values' should anywhere Ijo unnecessarily Impaired. In tho hands of many thousands of small Investors in the country, as well as in national banks, in iuaiirunce com-paiile.i, iu savings banks, in trust companies, in financial agencies ot every kind, railway securities, the sum total of which runs U)) lo some ten or eleven tliotiHund- millions, oonstltiito a vital ))art of the structure of credit, and tho unquestioned solidity ot that structure must he maintained. "Tho secrolary ot war and 1 easily iigreed thai. In view ot the, many complex Interests wlilch must bo safo-guardod and harmonized, as w'ell as because of his exceptional experience and ability in this new field of governmental action, tho Hon. William G. Mc-Adoo was the right man lo assume died administrative control of tills new ccecutivo task. "At our request, ho consented to as-aunio the authority and dutlts of ,or-;anizer and director general of the new railway administration. He has issumed these duties and his work is in aRtive progress. "It is probably loo much to expect that even under the unitied railway administration which will now be pos sible siitficiont economies can be effected in tho operations ot tho rail ways to make it possible to add to heir equipment and extend their oper illve facilities as tho present extraordinary demands upon their use will I'onder desirable,without resorting to the national treasury for the funds. If t is not possible, it will, of course, be necessary to resort to the congress for grants of money for itial purpose. The secretary ct the treasury will advise with your committees with regard to Lhis very practical asiffect ot the matter. For the present I suggest only the guarantees 1 have indicated and such appropriations as are necessary xl the outset ot this task. 1 take th iborty of expressing the hope that the congress may grant these promptly and ungrudgingly. We are dealing with great matters and will, I am sure, deal with tliem greatly." 11 Veteran Parliamentarian Dies Suddenly 'at His Home at Morri.sburg ' Carried Marlow's Meat 1110 SIXTH AVENU.E SOUTH PjriONE 796 MITCHELL LiVERY DAV OR NIGHT  Wesley T.
