The rate-makers belonging to the West

i"o next week to consider changes In
freight tnflffj. One of the special "matters
on tho docket Ih the proposed application o(
commodity rates to shipment of agricultural
Implements nnd wagons and tho adoption
of rules regulating agricultural Implemetita
and articles I'lnnallk'd as vcblclvn
In Western Trunk lino territory. If

manufacturers and dealers MM before tho
committee laot week. Tho objection was
Hindu that tho new classification, which bc
camo effective January IT., hna rcsulUM In
an advnnco of about sou per cent In ship
ments of agricultural Implements, less than
carload lots, while tho advance In shipments
of oarloads Ih not more than 20 per cent. If
tho committee decides to adopt 'omtnodlty
tales for ouch shipments It w believed that
this discrepancy will be romoved. Another

the demanding ol piepald charges on agri

The much-mooted tUntlnu of liquor raten
Is again to occupy a prominent place In the
proceedings of tho board. Tho particular
rate under discussion will be that applying
to shipments of nlcobol and whisky from
Omaha to SU. I'aul and Minneapolis. The
proposition has been advanced that this rate

murlly this rate was 36' cents, but It wim

battle shippers will await with lnteret
tho disposition of a proposition to discon
tinue tho general practice of stopping live
Htoek in tranwlt to complete loading. At
prtttont nearly all tho railroads permit n
cattle shipper lo stop his shipment enroutc
for tho purpose- of additional loading. With
Home a slight charge is made, while others
confer this courtesy upon the shipper with
out extra charge. In case the committee
decides to rtlfcontinuo this practice It Is
Htated that in order to avail hlmsel' of the
privilege of loading In transit the shipper
will havo to pay local rates from 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
rntea applying to shipments of this nature.
Among other matters for consideration are
certain changes In commodity ratr on ship
ments from New OrleanH nnd Mississippi
valley points to Missouri, river points, the
lowering of tho rate per 100 pounds on
cemcntleo from 28 cents to 22 cents between
Council Illtlffs nnd Omaha and Minneapolis
nnd St. Paul, and tho settlement of a pro
portional rate to apply on lumber from upper

mailo his headquarters in Ualtluiore, nnd
It will bo gratifying to his many friends to
lefirn that ho Is doing well In his new field.
