Chickens are not Hv stock, and
Charles Ream, of Los Angeles, owes
transcontinental railroads money for his
fare from Richmond, Va., to California.
Thla was the gist of an opinion given
yesterday by the Interstate Commerce
Commission on one of the strangest

up the law and found that railroads were
required to permit free transportation of
caretakers for live stock in transporta
tion. He shipped twelve chickens and
started on his journey as "caretaker td
that live stock" from Richmond, Va., to
Los Angeles. Ream got as far as El

to pay full passage
He demanded that the commission up

gorge his fare, but that body, while ad
miring bis Ingenuity, declined to support
