Washington, Dec. 12.— Plans for war time control of railroads will probably be completed before night. With the railroad war board scheduled to see President Wilson and with i.rotherhood chiefs in town, it appeared likely that definite methods of unified operation would be devised. The president will be ready within a short time to advise congress of hia desires as to this vital project. As affairs now are shaping lt appears likoly that a government railroad dictator perhaps Secretary of the Interior Lane—will be appointed to run the lines. He would have power to pool the lines and their equipment; to eliminate uuessential schedules and ao direct finances that the railroads at the end of his tenure would be tm a sounder basis than before. However, both the railroad war board and the brotherhoods intend to impress upon tbe president their views that private control, with a single bead, can accomplish desired war efficiency, provided the government lends a hand in strengthening the roads' finances. The president himself has been non-commital thus far, though the general impression is that he is favorable to the government control idea.
