GROWS IN FAVOR OF

Commerce Commission Be
ing Urged by Various In

General agitation Is being kept up In
favor of granting higher freight rates to
tho railroads. Tho Interstate Commerce
Commission Is receiving presentation of
vlows from investment Interests which
aro vitally conoornod in rcstorir.g pros
perity to transportation lines.
It Is Interesting to noto that one. of tho
members of tho commission which tho
Investment Bankers' Association of
America Is to send to "Wnshln on to
plead for tho roads nt 'ho rohonrlng on
October 10 Is Frederick Strauss, who was
n. member of tho Federal Commission
which Prealdont Toft appolntod In 1911 to
consldor tho advisability of national su
pervision of railroad Eocurltlco. That
commission, In Its report, pointed out tho
nceti oi larger lncomo to onablo tho roads
to sustain tholr orodlt and rnlso tho lm

tho Interstate Commerco Commission,
Political sentiment Is today moro In

Alterations of small properties at times
deter a buyer nnd mako him doubtful
If tho result can be ohtnlned for example,
a house on a lot, say, la to 15 foot front
by a depth of 70 feet, tho dwelling will
bo found to go back nbout SO feet. This
can be Improved by a new front, new
bath arrangements nnd other simple nd
iustments, from SIW to $2W, including
pnint nnd paper Caio must he oxerclsed

One thing that will havo to bo orer
como Is) the presence In tho smaller strcots
of stables, whloh wore used when It
was a great advantago to dwellers on
Walnut and Spruce streets to havo them
near nt hand, and boforo telephones were
In general use.
Thcso havo now been altered Into
garages, howover, and with tho present
facilities to movo quickly It Is not at all
Important to havo tho garago bo near.
Doubtless, with this vlow In mind, tho
streets mentioned could bo used entirely
for dwellings. Another consideration, and
nn Important one, Is that thero would
be less flro risk and better Insuranco
ratos obtainable If tho garages wero ro
A good many thousands of dollars have
