WASHINGTON, Augut t.1 iAo
ciated I'res) Through billing of
freight from the L'nited State to the
Orient will probably be again permitted
but step will be taken to prevent
freight accumulation and congestion on
the pier of Han Francisco and Heattle

Following bitter and iusisteut com
plaints by exporters because of the de

the present billing rule it is probable
that the railroad administration will re

through billing of freight to the Orient.
To prevent the accumulation of such
freight in Pacific Ports, however, it i
probable that there will be established
high demurrage rate which will make
