INTERSTATE COMMERCE BODY
DIGGING INTO UlVE R. R. DOPE
Unknown to thousands of Chicago

papers the interstate commerce com
mission yesterday opened another
hearing at the Hotel La Salle. At
present they are hearing witnesses
who are testifying against allowing
the northwestern railroads a pas
senger rate increase.
When the railroads begun to put in
their side of the story the news will
blossom out into the sections of the
paper which are more carefully read
and public sentiment will be aroused
and the poor starving railroad mag
nate may get his increase.
Recently, after months of hearing
testimony and lengthy arguments by
high priced attorneys, the roads were
denied a freight increase. Later the
commission reconsidered and the
roads got what they wanted.
Yesterday Clifford Thome, who
knows a lot about the financing and
the finances of railroads, brought out
some strange facts before the com
mission. Thorne represents the Iowa
state railroad commission. Iowa is
a farmers' state and Thorpe repre
sents the farmers.
The roads, in their attempt to ob
tain the increase, have added $750,
000,000 to their property in the past
five years, according to Thorne. "Ex
cluding the railroads, the increase in
property values is three times greater
than in any other preceding 5-year
period," he said. "In round numbers,
the net operating mcome of the
Northwestern road in the past seven
years amounts to $1,000,000,000.
This was $170,000,000 more than in
any other seven-year period in their
