AN INCREASE IS SHOWN
Express Service and Railroad Rates
Would Be More Than Under
A double addition of costs to "Washing

Pennsylvania and Baltimore and Ohio
Railroad companies would be made by

local freight delhery service March 1, of
which tho companies have died notifica
tions with the Interstate Commerce Com
mission. It Is asserted by persons opposed
to the discontinuance.
Not only would the free delivery be
superseded by an express servico for
which consignees of frelKht would have
to pay, but, indlrecUy. the rail rates for
delivery of the freights, f o. b Wash
ington, would be increased, it is con
tended. Where a first-class rate from New York
to Washington now Is 37 cents. Including
free local deliver, it is pointed out, the
railroad company gets 5Z.5 cents, and the
local express company 4 5 cents. On second-class
rate of 31 cents, the railroad
gets 26.5, the local express. 4 5, third-
class rate of X cents, the railroad gets
23. the local express, 3 cents; fourth
class rate of 21 cents, the railroad gets
IS, the local express 3 cents.
Same from Other Points.
Similarly, on rates from Philadelphia
to Washington, of 28 cents on first-class
freight, the railroad gets 2X5, and the
local express 4.5, second-class rate of 23,
the railroad gets 205 and the local ex
press. 4.5; third-class rate of 20 cents, the
railroad gets 17 and the local express, 3.
fourth-class rate of 16 cents, the railroad
gets 14 and the local express, 2 cents.
From New Jerej, Delaware, and New
England points on freights to Washing
ton from which the free local delivery
is maintained bv the Pennslania and
tho Baltimore and Ohio, proportionate dl-
islons of the rates are made.
If the free local delivery Is discon
tinued, it Is contended, the prccnt rates
named by the railroads will be maintained
for dem cry of freights I f o b Wash
ington, no deduction being made to com
pensate for tho local express charges
included in tho present rates. Addition
alls, the Washington conignecs of
