No New Financing For
Pennsylvania Railroad
New York, Sept. 7. Much has been
heard in the financial district recent
ly that the Pennsylvania Railroad
Company contemplated doing some
new financing in the near future, but
Samuel Rea, president of the Penn
sylvania, put this rumor to rest, when
he told a reporter that his road has
all the funds it needs, having receiv
ed a loan of $20,000,000 from the gov
ernment at 6 per cent. This will be
a surprise to Wall Street, for it is the
first time, it has been stated, that the
Pennsylvania had obtained relief from
the government. It would not, there
fore. be surprising if it is learned that
other roads have received similar aid
from the government.
Freight Congestion Ended,

as ships can be provided to carry
them overseas, according to reports
made by fifty Federal railorad man
agers to Director MoAdoo and Re
gional Director A. H. Smith at a con
ference here Thursday. Passenger
traffic is fully 25 per cent, greater
than ever before.
Mr. McAdoo, addressing the Federal
managers, said the railroads of the
West "can take care of anything."
Thousands of empty cars are ready at
important points to r.iove the crops
out of that region.

Is Order From Washington,
According to Unofficial Re
ports; Some Men Get Less
With the recent increases In wages
to railroad men, piecework Is to be
abolished. This announcement was
mad* unofficially yesterday in local
shops of the Pennsy. Official orders,
it is understood, have already been
issued at Altoona shops. It is also said
that similar orders will come to rail
road shopmen throughout the United
There is nothing in the report to
indicate that it is planned to adopt
it generally, but officials of the Penn
sylvania Railroad Company believe it
is only a question, of time until the
piecework system will be a thing of
the past, and all employes will be paid
by the day or hour as the case may
be. The piecework system has been
in operation for thirty years.
Some Men Will Get I.csa
The enginehouse employes, it is
now said will be paid in accordance
with the provisions of the general
order of Director General McAdoo and
the supplements, machinists being
rated at sixty-eight cents an hour as
a minimum, and some of the employes
will receive less compensation than
they have been getting under the
piecework system. However, there
will be adjustments sooner or later,
it is believed, and as a matter of fact,
the engine washers and perhaps some
others are affected by the wage in
crease that was announced at Wash
ington yesterday.
The wages of the enginehouse em
ployes vary considerably and there
will be more or less variance under
the new system of paying, because
there are different classes of work
ers employed in these departments.
Enginehouse machinists have general
ly made good money, for there Is al
ways something for them to do and
they have but little idle time while
on duty. •

ington, D. C. He left to-day. It is

as much as'possible. According to
