WILSON FOR I
PRE8IDENT MAKES FINAL PROPO
SITION FOR PREVENTING
Put Rail Preaidents So Far Refuse To
Accede To The Proposition, In-
sisting On Their Arbi-
Washington.—President Wilson ap-
pealed to the railroad officials to aban-
don their insistence on arbitration of
^he dispute threatening a nation-wide
ptrike and to accept his plan of settle-
taent, already agreed to by the em-
ployes, because In his opinion the rail-
roads are contending for a principle
which it seemingly is impossible to ap-
ply to the present situation.
In one of the most dramatic scenes
known to the White House in recent
years, the president declared to the
heads of $5,000,000,000 worth of prop/
erties assembled at his summons:
"If a strike comes, the public
will know where the responsibility
rests. It will not be upon me."
A few minutes later he issued a
statement saying that the public has a
right to expect acceptance of his plan.
Rail Head Voices Objection.
Refusing acceptance for the pres-
ent, but not giving a final answer,
Hale Holden, president of the Bur-
lington road and spokesman for fhe
thirty-three railroad officials, urged
the president to uphold the principle
of arbitration and declared his plan
would "place in peril all that has been
accomplished in the peaceful adjust-
ment of labor controversies by meth-
ods of arbitration."
At the close of the conference, Presi-
dent Wilson summoned to Washington
additional railroad presidents from
the west and the executives already
here told him they would confer
among themselves and return.
Situation "Not Hopeless But Grave."
The situation was described by a
railroad president as "not hopeless but
Discussion of counter proposal and
compromises were current and serious
consideration was given to the possi-
bility of government operation of the
roads in case of a strike.
As a result of the day's conferences,
however, It was said on good authori-
ty that many of the road presidents
looked upon the possibility of a strike
as more remote than at any time since
they came to Washington. Over the
week-end it was anticipated that the
railroad officials will get into communi-
cation with the controlling financial
interests and it still was considered
possible that some of the powerful di-
rectors of the roads would be called to
Washington Both among the employ-
ers and employes talk of arrangements
for a strike continued and for different
reasons that both sides thought if it
came it would last less than a week.
Wilson Saya It Is Condition, Not
While President Wilson still was ad-
dressing the railroad executives tell-
ing them they faced "a condition, not
a principle," his statement to the coun-
try reviewing his plan and characteris-
ing it as a "thoroughly practicable and
fair program" was given out at the
White House. In the statement he
urged adoption of the eight-hour day
bechuse he "believed the concession
right" suggested the creation by con-
gress of a small body of men to in-
vestigate the results, and urged aban-
donment of the demand for time and a
half overtime pay by the men and
''contingent" proposals by the rail-
Mr. Holden insisted upon arbitration
in his reply to the president because
"it is essentially the common right of
every citizen of whatever condition in
life to be heard" and because experi-
ence "has put the right to claim arbi-
tration as a method of settling such
controversies beyond question." He
argued that the eight-hour day is im-
practicable in railroading and said the
roads are willing for the interstate
commerce commission or any other
disinterested body to ^arbitrate the
whole question. The demand for the
eight-hour day is in reality, he de-
clared. only an indirect plea for "an
enormous increase in wages" and said
that "In this instance for those de-
manding a chance to refuse to submit
their demands to arbitration is unde-
MAINTENANCE OF DIRT ROADS
Illinois State Highway Department
Makes Comments That Partly An-
swer Oft-Repeated Question.
All through the central states there
seems to be at present an unexpected
Interest In earth roads, and there is a
widespread desire to have an authori-
tative opinion on the field for which
Buch roads are adapted. It is a sub-
ject on which many experienced road
engineers are not willing to make any
statements for fear of being misun-
derstood or misquoted, but the road
engineer of the Illinois state highway
department has recently made some
(lade from o/d wa^on fir*

comments that answer a part of this
oft-repeated question as follows: "The
earth road cannot, by any system of
maintenance, be kept up throughout
the entire year to the usual standard
of the other types. The use of the road
in a wet and softened condition is
what causes the trouble. Under the
conditions where the earth road is a
suitable type, its total cost for con-
struction and maintenance is less than
that of any other type. In dry weather
and when it is not too dusty, the prop-
erly constructed and maintained earth
road is by far more pleasant and more
satisfactory to travel upon than any
other road. With neglected main-
tenance, however, no other type of
road can go to pieces and become Im-
passable so quickly as an earth road.
Nor, on the other hand, can any other
type be brought to a satisfactory con-
dition for travel so quickly and so
cheaply after having been impassable.
From these peculiar features, it will
be noted that practically the entire
problem with earth roads is their
proper druinage and systematic main-
tenance. The opportunity for better-
ing our road conditions by properly
improving the earth roads is almost
beyond our imagination."

DETERMINE SIZE OF A LOAD
Easy to Find Out How Grade Affecta
Pull—One Argument Against
Going Around Hill.
The grade in a rond determines the
size of load that can be pulled over it
A good way to learn the effect of
grade is to ride a bicycle on the level
and up different grades. It will very
quickly be found out how grades affect
the pull. One argument against going
around a hill is that it makes the dis-
tance greater. This Is not always the
case. The ball of a pall is no longer
tgben lying down than when standing
up. One bad gra<l«> in a road may
easily double the cost of hauling. The
work of grading down a hill usually
costs more than to buy the land re-
quired to go around it
