The railroads of the country asked the railway labor board to abrogate the national agreements so that an immediate reduction in rates without an immediate reduction in wages could be brought about Thomas Dewitt Cuyler, chairman of the Associa tion of Hauway Executives, said Tuesday night in a telegram to President Wilson, replying to one sent the chief executive Monday njtfh. by representatives of seven labor unions. Mr. Cuyler denied evefy charge made against the railroads by the labor leaders in their telegram, declaring that they were "deliberate and gross misrepresentations and propaganda intended to discredit private management of the rail roads in the interests of the Plumb plan and to defeat efforts being made in good faith to abolish rules and working conditions which were war measures." . Mr. Cuyler aaidtthe railroads had refused a conference with labor leaders because such a conference could not adjust conditions for all roads in all parts of the country. The roads, however, were willing individually to adjust conditions with their employes, and were in fact urging this upon the labor board. Oily Way Oat, Telegram Says. "The action requested by Brigadier General W. W. Atterbury of the Pennsylvania lines (abrogation of the national agreements) is the only action, which with government sanction, can free the bands of the railway executives and enable them by orderly procedure with their men to develop appropriate rules and working conditions," the telegram said. "The only rules that stand the test of practical operation and do not involve endless controversy are rules negotiated between each management and its own men and the opportunity of securing this is required by the railroads, not only to enable the roads to achieve the earning power contemplated in the transportation act but in the interests of an ultimate reduction in transportation rates to the public. la latarast at Workers. "Last, but not least, the roads' request is in the interest of the men who work on these railroads. We recognise that as the wages of railroad employes were the last to go up they should also be the last to come down, and if by restoring the conditions necessary to efficient and economical operation, the railroads can postpone for a reasonable period the reduction of basic wages, which will ultimately be requireS, they will be only 00 glad to do so in the interest of the great body 01 ueir employes. "The pressing financial necessities of the railroads are such that, if denied the opportunity of economy through proper rules and working conditions, their only other recourse must be in a reduction of basic wages. "The railway executives are proceeding in this matter with the keeneat sense of obligation to the public. They feel that they are trustees of a great public interest and' that they are representing tot only their own interest but the interests of the farmer, the consumer, labor and manufacturers in other Industries, and the railway employes themselves. They have every confidence that, when the various Industries and workers are making their respective contributions to a decline in the cost of living, the great body of railway employes will certainly not refnse to make tneir a miliar con-tribution." . .

WA SHINGTON, Feb. 2. Revision of the sections of the Calder coal regulation bill giving the government power to control production and distribution ia emergencies was suggested to the senate commerce committee Wednesday by Dr. Harry A. Garfield, former federal fuel administrator. 1 "The bill," said Dr." Garfield, "goea fur ther than I believe necessary or wise in conferring quasi-judicial powers upon the federal trade commission to determine whefl an emergency exists and recom mend action to the president This gives a fact-finding body power to determine policy. "This power ought to be reserved to the president, or if delegated, should be assigned only to a member of the cabinet He added that the cabinet officer should have the aid of advisory commis sions of anthracite and bituminous coal operators, dealers and workers. Indorsing provisions of the bill giv ing the trade commission authority to collect facts as to cost and distribution, Mc Garfield said he was certain that the coal industry and the public coakd not get along without knowledge of the facta aa to "cost of production, stocks of coal, working conditions in the mines and prices." "I presume in the early periods, the fuel administration did more robbing of Peter to pay Paul than any of us like to recall," he said, "and it was because we could not get the factx until the machinery was set up to make them available."
