This plan will be tried first at this

SHORTAGE OF CARS
FOR GRAIN ACUTE
Railroad Freight Men Declare that
Shortage in Wheat and Corn
Beit worst in History. i
CARS TIED UP AT SEAPORTS
The (train-carrying car shortage,
not only In Omaha, but all through
the corn and wheat balta of the coun
try, has become the moft acnte In
the hls'tory of transportation, assert
local railroad freight men.
According to the railroad men, twj
weeks ago signs of relief wera In Bight.
Tho embargo was lifted from half a
dozen Atlantln and practically all of the
gulf ports by reason of arrival of a large
number of vessels ready to load out for
Kurope. This cleaned out the elevatoia
and it was believed there would ho
enough vessels to handle the export grain!
trade Into Kuror. The grain commenced
to move freely, but it was not long until'
tho receipts at all ports exceeded the
facilities for shipping abroad. The ele
vators soon filled to capacity and now
it Is asserted that, under the most favor
able condition. It would reunite thirty
da to put afloat the Wheat and corn
stored and held In ears along the Atlantic
and Gulf coast.
Not only are" elevators all along tho
coast filled with grain for l)uroe, say
the traffic men, but heck tn the country.
at stations fifty or more nulos from the
sibuard. tho switches and yards are con
gested with cars loaded with grain. Tha
result Is that most of the roads havo
largo numbers of freight cars In the eail
and south, loaded with grain and there
is no determining when they will come
Advices coming to the railroads Is to
the rrfect that at this time Newport
News is the only Atlantic port receiving
grain for export and that the rapacity
there tins leromo limited. At Galveston,
while the embargo has been laid against
the port, there is one e'evator that atlll
lias considerable space, with the pos
