War Has Closed !he Mqiwj Mmkels cf Europe
to llmm hiMlnllQly
In view of the fact that one of the
railroads of Nebraska has already
filed an application for an increase i f
rates with the State Railway Commis
sion, it is the desire of all the rail
roads to utilitre this opportunii" f :
an intimate and frank tli-cu. so. i oT
the whole railroad question with the
people of this state. To this end, i.
careful attention of the readers is ii -vited
to a series of article's wliuh i 1
appear in this newspaper during ire
next few weeks and which will c ntai i
the most far reaching discussion of
this great problem that has e ver a; -pea
red in the public press. All that
is asked in the meantime is that ti e
people of Nebraska accord to the rai.
roads the courtesy of listening to the r
side of the story and then form sui i
conclusions as, in their judgment, the
facts may warrant.
That the railroads of the Un.I't I
States are today confronted by tl e
gravest ciisis in their history there is
not the slightest question. For s ".re
years tluy have been cio.-.per.ito "
struggling with an ever incivr.sii ;
cost of operation in the face of i -ducenl
freight and passenger rates -but
serious as this sit nation wr.s 1 -
fore, the European war, which h .s
indefinitely closed" to them the foivh . .1
money markets- has suddenly broi;j t
thtMii face to face with a situ tti. o
which threatens iiot merely many lit",
receiverships, but the actual pur.-lv-i-of
the entire transportation industry
of the Nation. It was this :tate' of
affairs which compelhd the closing of
the New York Stock E.: charge some
months ago. What will happen in the
future the future alone can U- 1.
American railroads are valued r.
round figures at twenty biPion dollar s,
and of this vast sum -.icady ftvo bil
lion dollars worth of sicv.rities a ..
he'd abroad. Should Europe, in i.s
frantic struggle for funds, seek
convert these securities into cr.sii dur
ing d urine the next teive month",
where is the money to come f-c-n wi l:
".li'uh to buy ihcni? and failing e
protect these securities, what demor
alization will follow not merely in r.:il
road investments, but in all oth- r
American indutrial value-; as v.eii?
The recent statement of David I.lovd
George, Chancellor of the Euchec.uer,
that the inability of Englishmen to
convert their American i'..ve-t".ten .;
into cash is crippling Great Uia. in r.
its present emerger.cy is ominous v
significant. Possibly the New York
Stock Exchange may be able to re
sume operations without ! isris ier f v
the time being, but that the rinanc s
not merely of the United Stales, bit
of the work! will be subjected to r.
j-lraiu without precedent in h":;toiy
during the next year or two is so ap
parent that it requires no extended
comment. In a future article thi
phase of the question will le den it
with more fully.
President Wilson's Vie.
That the situation is profoundly se
rious is manifested by the recent lit -t
erance of President Wilson to a
group of Eastern railroad executive .
In his letter to Mr. Trumbull of the
Chesapeake: Ji Ohio he said:
"You ask me to call tht attention ( "
the country to the imperative need
that railway credits be sustained ai d
the railroads helped in every possibV
vvay, whether by private co-vj.erati'. e
yffort or by the action v. hercver forc
ible of governmental agencies, and I
am glad to do so, be-cau e I think the
need is very real.
"They arc! indispensable to our
whole economic life, and railway se
curities are at the very he-art of mor f
investments, large and .small, y-il 1 c
arid private, by individuals and by in
stitutions. "I am confident there will be ca cr
est and active co-oporet' n in tit's
marie r, perhaps the one common in
terest of our whole irniu.-.trijl life.
"Undoubtedly men, both, in and out
of official position, v. ill appreciat e
what is involved ar.d lend their rid
heartily wherever it is po-siMe U r
them to lend it. But the emergency :'i
in fact extraordinary and where there
is manifest common interest we otig d
all of us to speak out in its beha f,
and I am glad to join ou in cailirg
attention to it. This is a time for all
to :it and together in united effort to
comprehend every interest and sere
and sustain it in every legitimate

In this connection -t may he said
tend the railroad world ic encumhe;ed
with a bt of phantoms which ex; ,t
only in the popular fancy. For in-

it:.!" dor'.en so-called laiiroad magnates
