Railroad Companies to Increase
Protection to Travelers'
RAISE FROM $100 TO $300
Trans-Pacific Passengers Are Favor
edUniform Regulations to be
Effective Jan. 1.
New rules for checking baggage
and uniform liability for personal
property probably will become effec
tive on all the railroads Jan. 1 at
the latest. Working with the inter
state commerce commission, officers
of all roads in the country have
reached a point where an agreement
for uniform rules and regulations is
The principal change will be In
raising the railroad liabilty for bag
gage values. Under the present con
tract with passengers the transpor
tation lines assume a maximum
value of $100 for checked baggage.
Mercantile interests of the country
have petitioned railroads to increase
this liability to $200 or $300, and
this probably will be done, that is
the higher figure may be agreed
Under the new rules there is an
apparent discrimination on the part
of trans-Pacific passengers, who will
be allowed to check twice as much
baggage as a passenger traveling to
points in this country; that is, a
person going from here to Honolulu
will be allowed 350 pounds of bag
gage for a full ticket and 175 pounds
for a half fare, compared with 150
pounds to a full ticket and 75
pounds for a half, allowed a passen
ger between Chicago and San Fran
cisco. Xo explanation for Difference.
There is no concession to persons
holding trans-Atlantic tickets, the
apparent discrimination running only
to those who cross nr sail the Pa
cific. Railroad men do net give any
explanation for the difference in al
lowance. Another feature of the rule is that
the railroads will accept baggage
and give checks for bicycles and tri
cycles, but not for motorcycles. Ani
mals of circuses, wild west shows or
similar entertainments, must be
shipped as freight or express, but
there is no bar against domestic or
trained animals, providing they do
not exceed 250 pounds.
For years railroads have had their
own rules for handling baggage, but
the varying regulations of the dif
ferent roads caused so much trouble
to passengers that under the guid
ance of the commerce commlssfbn
railroads have drawn and adopted
uniform regulations. Nearly every
road In the country is a subscriber
to the new rules.
