UNDER FEDERAL LAW
HOUSE COMMITTEE LINKS MAILS
AND EXPRESS IN BILL.
Would Interchange Packages With
Rural Delivery Service Highest
Rate Is 12 Cents.
Washington. A bill enlarging the
Interstate commerce law so as to
place express companies under the
commission was reported to the
house by the committee on Interstate
The bill would govern the trans
portation of packages not exceeding
eleven pounds in weight and with a
valuation of $S0 or less. No allow
ance would be made for the expense
of transfer from one express com
pany to another.
The rates would be fixed as follows:
Between any two points In the
United States more than 2,000 miles
apart, 12 cents a pound; not more
than 2,000 miles apart, 10 cents; not
more than 1,200 miles apart, 7 cents;
not more than 800 miles apart, S
cents; not more than 600 miles apart,
4 cents, and between points not more
than 250 miles apart, 2 cents a pound.
It Is provided, however, that no ex
press company shall be compelled to
accept for transportation any pack
age for a charge of less than 10 cents.
An innovation In the bill Is the pro
vision for co-operation between the
express companies and the rural free
delivery routes. Express matter des
tined for a farmer living on a rural
mail route would be delivered by the
express agent at the nearest point to
Its destination, where, provided the
