Our New Express Rates.
Every man can now find out any
express rate for himself with the aid
of the remarkable rate tables which
the Interstate Commerce Commis
sion has recently compiled. This
valuable document has been printed
as a government publication, and
anyone who patronizes the express
companies to any extent should have
one in his possession. It is on sale
at cost by the Superintendent of
.Documents, Washington, D. C.
Until the government, compilation
was made there were some 900,000,-
000 separate rates published by the
express companies in hundreds of
books and pamphlets. It was abso
lutely impossible for any ordinary
shipper to calculate a rate tor him
self. It was next to impossible for
even the agents of the express com
panies to do so correctly, and as a
result complaints of overcharges
and undercharges (mostly over
charges) were filed with the commis
sion by the tens of-thousands.
The government statisticians
have now reduced these 900,00.0,000
rates to less than 650,000. This has
been done by dividing the country
into territorial blocks. By means of
rate tables which are made up of key
numbers any person can find in five
minutes the exact express rate on a
package of any Bize between any two
points in the United States.
The new rates to which these
tables relate, will go into effect Octo
ber 23. They offer to the. consumer
the first real relief ever given from
the extortionate exactions of the
express companies, who, having mon
opolized a field that ought rightful
ly to be filled by the* railroads -and
the postoffice, have been able to take
from commerce vast fortunes for the
few individuals who own most of the
Many of the cuts are drastic. Oth
ers are left at about their present
level. In some instances express
rates have been raised by the new
order. But the whole system of rates
has been worked out in a scientific
way and with an eye single to the
interests of the people.
It may take the country some
months of experience to find out the
advantages of the new rates. But
vfrom an extended and careful study
"of the new rates the following gen
eralization can be stated as approx
1. Parcel post rates Vre lower
than the net express rates on rail
packages weighing .five pounds or
less being shipped to any distance.
2. Parcel 'post rates are lower
than the new express rates on all
packages weighing 20 pounds or less
-being shipped any distance up to
3 "The fflew express rates are*
lower than parcel post rates on
packages weighing over five pounds
shipped to any distance and on
packages weighing over 20 pounds
shipped 150 miles or 'farther.
It will he seexr-that the effect of
this order will be to give the parcel
post a monopoly of the small pack-!
age business and a monopoly of
tpaekages weighing up to 20 pounds
"for *hort distances. The express
companies must take the long haul
business, which is the less profitable.
