Presents Interesting Question.
This change of express companies
has presented to the commission a
somewhat interesting question. The
commission some time ago Investi
gated tho rates charged by tho Pacific
Express Company decided that they
were too high, and ordered n reduc
tion of about 20 per cent, and recently
tho order wont Into effect. The ques
tion now presented Is whether tho
now company will abldo by these
rates, or whether It will set up rates
of Its own .and contrary to those es
tablished by tho commission. In the
event that It should not observe the
commission's ordor of Its own volition
it will bo necessary for the commis
sion to mako an ordor applicable to
tho now company.
