The rate-mnkcrg lelonglng to the West
ern Trunk Line committee lll meet In Chi
cago next week to consider changes In
freight tarlffi. One of the special emitters j
on tho docket is the proposed application of
commodity rates to shipments of agricultural
implement:) and wagons and the adoption
of rules regulating agricultural Implements
and articles classified as vehicles
In Western Trunk lino territory. If
the rato-makcrs elmll ilwlOo to adopt com
modity rates lor agricultural Implements It
will mean a couHldcr.ihlo reduction from tho
class rules at present In effect. Tho do
I'Minliiallot of tho Western Trunk Lluo
committee to tako up tho matter of Iouor
rates on agricultural Imptwnttua Is doubt
less attributable to tho remonstrances of tho
manufacture's and dealers filed before tho
committee laot week. The objection was
mailo that tho new classification, which be
carno effectlvo January .", has resulted In
an advance, of about 200 per cent In ship
ments of agritultural Implnmeiita. less than
carload lots, while tlm advance In shipment.!
of cHi-loads Is not moro than 20 per cent. If
the commltteo decides to adopt "otnmodlty
rates tor euch shlpracntq it s believed that
this discrepancy will be rfnovcd. Another

The much-mooted tullon of liquor ruu-i
is again to occupy a prominent place in the
proceeding of the board. The particular
rate under discussion will be that applying
to shipments of alcohol and whisky from
Omaha to St. I'aul and Minneapolis. The
proposition has been advanced that this rate
bo placed nt 311 ccnui per 100 pounds. Pri
marily this rate was 26' cents, but It whh
recently Increased and since Kebruary 12 Ins
heen 45 cents.
Cattle Hhlppers will await with lnterct
tho disposition of a proposition to discon
tinue the general practice of stopping live
block In initial I to complete loading. At
Tirtttent nearly all tho railroads permit a
cattle shipper to slop his shipment enroiite
for the purpose of additional loading. With
some . slight charge H made, while others
crnfe.- his courtesy upon the shipper with
out extra charge. In case, the comml'tee
decldm to rtlwontinuo this practice It Is
dated that In order to avail himself of the
privilege of loading In transit the shipper
will have to pay local rates front tho point
of original shipment to the place of addi
tional loading and tho local rate from that
point to destination. Such a procedure
would result In a considerable advance In
rates applying to shipments of this nature.
Among other matters for consideration are
certain changes In commodity ratw on ship
ments from New Orleans nnd Mississippi
valley points to Missouri, river points, thf
lowering of the rate per 100 pounds on
cement leu from 28 cents to 22 cents between
Council Bluffs nnd Omaha and Minneapolis
