That a coal shoruvse has prevailed for months is now generally, eon- ceded to have been a question of transportation. .There lack of mine* capacity to produce all the coal needed, but there is a decided lack of'motive power and cars, to move it,: and · perhaps"Sess; of the latter than the .former:-. The shortage ta motive power,, including aiso tie shortage, in men t.o handle trains, nas prevented the prompt movement of cars to destinations and back again to loading points, the effect of which has been the same as an actual insufficiency in the number of cars; -. From this view of. the situation the concensus.or opinion among:those who hare given it close stiriy:i that the solution of the problem of fuel snp^ ply as well alSo of the' problem o'f moving other essential freight, is dependent upon a solution of the transportation problem. There are^ differences of opinion as to how this may best be done. Of .the many 'suggestions along this line one by the Coal Mining Review has considerable merit. "It would seem." says this publication, "that a practical Dlan of solving the congested railroad traffic would be to call, into a conference,all railroad presidents. Frankly ask "the railroad executives what is required in the way o'f locombtives,-railroad cars and other equipment to handle the traffic offered the railroads for transportation. -Then j let Congress pledge the credit neces-j sary for. the railoads to puchase locomotives, . cars and equipment, and if locomotive- works and car shops .are not- available, let the Government temporarily commandeer those plants to furnish the railroads the necessary locomotives and railroad cars ... to move'freight. When this is done there will be no coal shortage." ' : 1 With the murder'of babes being: re- Bumod Germany win naturally feel that the cause of Prussianlsm is moving -forward toward.
