NEW SCHEDULE IN EITEOT SEPT. 1
Increased Expense of Operation
Claimed to bo the Cause of
Effects attributed to the recent ad
vance in wages given the employes
of, the railroads west of Chicago
continue to manifest themselves.
First, orders were issued to reduce
expeuses on the ground that economy
was forced uiuler existing circum
stances, and now comes an advance
in freight rates. The. Chicago Trib
une says the trans-Missouri roads
will make a sharp advance in freight
rates Sept. 1. The advances include
almost every kind of freight carried
and run from 1 cent to 14 cents a
One of the most radical rulings
made by the roads is the abolishing
of the "commodity rates" on staple
groceries, such as sugar, coffee, beans,
etc., and placing these articles under
legular class rates. The advances
caused by this change range from
one-half cent a hundred pounds, and
will probably cause an increase in
the 'price of groceries next fall and
Live stock rates have experienced
a general advance of from l' cents
to 4 cents, effect ie Sept. 1, and the
shipj'rs an making vigorous pro
tests over the action of the roads.
Kansas Iie stork men have appealed
to the railroad commission of the
state and the railroads have been
summoned to answer, but up to the
present time only the (Jrand Island
railroad has seen lit to take any cog
nizance of the order. In its reply the
(rand Island takes the position that
the state railroad commission has no
jurisdiction in the matter, as it is in
The live stock rates were formerly
charged by the carload, the cost de
pending on the size of the car, but
the roads felt they could add to their
revenues by changing their method
and established a rate by weight.
When the change was made the rail
roads claimed there would be no ad
vance. The shipers discovered, how
ever, that they were paving a sub
stantial increase over the old rates
and now a still further advance is to
Local railway men say that there
has no notice been received here of
an advance in rates. They are of the
opinion that the burden of the nd-
mce will bear most heavily upon
th' shippers west of the .M issou ri ami
that the increase alTceting this local-;
itv will be small if anv at all is made.

that further search might reveal
more of it. Closer examination, how
ever, showed that the lockets had
been worn. There was nothing about
them to indicate who the owner might

particularly so, though there was a
protest against the first heat, and it
was ruled out after a somewhat leng

and the owners of the hores entered.
Lou II. won the first heat in the run
ning event, but there was suspicion
aroused on the part of some that the
jockeys had "iixed" things and con
sequently a protest was entered, the
allegation being that Dutch Hoy, who
was second, had been held. The
judges at first considered call
ing the heat off and ordering a
change of riders. Eventually the for
mer was done but the riders wore al
lowed to keep their mounts after they
had been told plainly what the. conse
quences would be if there were any
further suspicion that they were try
