WASHINGTON, Jan. 25.-(Hpeclul Tele
graui.) The Interstate Commerce com
mission today granted the application of
railroads In the northwest for permis
sion to advance rates on hay from points
In louu, MlnnesoUi, the Dakotns, Wiscon
sin and Illinois to Chicago, to become ef
fective Immediately. The railroads gave
notice of tljese advances early last year
to tnke effect March IB, but because f
protests from hay shippers In tho north
west the proposed Increase In rates was
suspended penilng a hearing.
Except for two stations In Minnesota,
where the advance Is 5 cents per hun
dred pounds, the Increases range fit m
Is to l',4 cents and nre said to average
generally about 2 cents.
Ttider western classification hay takes
the Class C late, but to Chicago and
other terminal markets commodity rates
lower than this class have generally ob
tained. The advances permitted today by the
committee bring the rates up to the
"Class C basis In most Instances, the
exception being In the case of long hauls,
and in the case of the Milwaukee road,
which has observed a maximum advance
of 3VS cents.
To Minneapolis, Milwaukee and St.
I.outs. the commodity rates have been
advanced to tho same basis, but as the
CIbbs C rates to Chicago an lto other
markets to do always represent tlie same
spread as the commodity rates, the In
creases to Chicago are greater In n num
ber of Instances.
From points In Mlimw-otu to Minne

because of the rates fixed by the state
