It was expected that the new rate
would be effective within ten days,
ai the railroads It It snld, had ask
ed the Interstate Commerce com
mission to authorize the change- on
one day's notice. The reduction will
cost the railroads about $55,000,
000, It was estimated.
"Tho ratlroada have already re
duced freight rates substantially
from the level established by the
commission In August, 1)20," Mr.
Cuyler's statement said. "The re
ductions already made are estimated
as accurately as can be, to Involve a
loss of revenue at the rate of from
1175.000,000 to $200,000,000 an
nually. These reductions on many
roads" represent a loss much greater
than any corresponding saving
realized front reductions In wages
already effected. The railroads are
' i- j.i.fc..
Relying on Public
. Mr, Cuyler said the railroads
were relying on the public for ef
fective aid In bringing about the
i necessary reduction In labor and
I other transportation costs and that
'tbey hoped for labor's co-operation.
I He declared the railroads bad taken
' the first step to relieve existing
; business depression and bad given
an earnest example of their Died
purpose to reduce rates and to re
lieve, at the earliest practicable
moment, so far as reasonably possi
ble, the public's transportation bur
dB". The executives passed a resolu
tion to the effect that In the event
of disagreement between the rail
road officials and their employees in
conference on wage" reductions( the
necessary steps under the law would
be to apply to the railway labor
board for quick' action.

It also was decided by resolution
to apply to the Interstate Com
merce commission for rehearing
of the hay and grain case. A gen
eral Inquiry is asked to ascertain
whetEer until a substantial reduc
tion In operation and labor costs
could be obtained, any further rate
reduction could lawfully be requir
ed or with due regard to the trans
portation industry made possible.
The new rates are applicable to
carloads of wheat, corn, oats, other
.grain, flour and meal, hay, straw
and alfalfa, manufactured tobacco.
