Mexico City, Mn., Nov. Zi. The
representatives of the larger smelt
ing and mining interests 01 juexico 10
day held a conference with the Mexi
can railroad commission and protest
ed against the proposed raise In the
rates of ores. It is stated that the
change In classification amounts to a
raise of about 25 per cent In the ore
rates. The mining and smelting men
claim that this raise would cause the
closing down of numerous mines and
would result In Injury to those Indus
tries. The railroads are urging the
adoption of the new classification on
the ground that the present rates are
not equal to the actual cost of trans
portation. The commission took the
protest under advisement.
