Washington. July 8. A serious
charge was made in a complaint filed
with the Interstate commerce commis
sion on Saturday against the Missouri
Pacific and a number of other western
railroads by corporations, partner
shins and Individuals engaged in the
flour milling trade in Oklahoma. Kan
sas and Missouri. It is alleged that an
increase in the rates on flour was
made by the defendant companies in
revenge against the complainants be
cause of a petition which was filed
with the interstate commerce commis
sion less than a month ago alleging
that the railroads charged unjust and
unreasonable rates to the Atlantic
markets as compared with the rates
on flour and wheat products from
MinneaDOlis and other northwestern
points.
"In retaliation and In a spirit of re
venge," the petition asserts, "these
railroads filed with this commission a
schedule of rates, which shall go into
effect on July 1. 1907, whereby, with
out reason, excuse or pretended Justi
fication, they have arbitrarily ad
vanced the rates 1 Vk per cent per
hundred weight."
The complainants request the com
mission to issue an order to prevent
the rates from going Into effect, as, if
they should be compelled to pay the
advanced rates even for a short time,
the effect on their business would be
disastrous. They urge the commis
sion to take prompt action in the
case, because they are likely, on ac
count of the advanced rates, to be
barred practically from the eastern
markets.
Thus far the commission has not
taken the peremptory action against
the railroads which the complainants
demanded, but has indicated an Inten
tion to hear the merits of the case at
the earliest possible date. In any
event. It is explained, such action as
the commission may take in the
future will be retroactive so far as
these particular rates complained of
are concerned, and. should the de
cision of the commission be favorable
to the complainants, the latter will
have good grounds on which to base
an action for reparation for any dam
ages they may have sustained by the
advance in the rates.
as a matter of convenience. Clergy
rates and rates on the certificate plan
will also be discussed.
MR. STARK'S HEAVY CLAIM.
for
Wants $18,000 From Railroads
Overcharges Paid.
Washington, July 8. James Stark
of Kansas City seeks to recover as
reparation from several railroads,
about $18,000 which he alleges was
paid them in overcharges, or In freight
at rates that were decided by the in
terstate commerce commission to be
unjust and unreasonable. Mr. Stark
bases his claim upon the decision and
order of the commission in the cae of
the Texas Cattle Raisers' association,
which the railroads declined to obey.
The roads affected are: Rock Island,
Missouri Pacific, Union Pacific, Santa
Fe and Frisco. The shipment of cattle
were from various points in Colorado,
Kansas, Oklahoma and Indian Terri
tories and Texas to Kansas City and
St. Joseph, Mo., during the year 1903,
and up to August. 1905, when the
commission announced its decision.
From the Rock Island he asks judg
ment for $12,458; from the Missouri
Pacific. $651: from the Frisco, $191;
and from the Santa Fe, $5,492. These
railroads began in 1903 to make ad
vances on shipments of cattle from
these various stations on their cattle
and live stock markets and the Texas
Cattle Raisers' association. After the
third advance the matter was brought
before the-commission. The commis
sion's finding and order was in favor
of the shippers, but the commission
had not the power to enforce It. Since
it was given the power by congress in
ine .MepDurn act. the association has
again presented Its case and a decision
is expected soon. . which will compel
the railroads to comply with the for
mer order. Under the Hepburn act
shippers are entitled to reparation for
money paid In excessive rates back to
the time such rates became effective
and it is under this clause that Stark
and other shippers, including many
lumDer nrms and persons in various
lines or commerce, are filing their pe
uuons ior "DacK pay.

Joyed Snch Prosperity.
The fiscal year ended June 30 was
an unusually successful one for the
railroad and industrial corporations of
the United States, all previous records
havine been broken. The Wall Street
Journal has made an estimate on the
basis of reports made to it and has
arrived at the following conclusions:
"That the railroads of the United
States earned $2,578,413,273 gross in
the fiscal year, an increase of $258.
653,234, or 11.15 per cent, over the
previous year, compared with an In
crease Of $237,277,624, Or 11.4 per
cent. In 1906 over 1905.
"That the net earnings of railroads
this fiscal year amounted to $841,468,-
503. an increase of $53,871,626, or t.4
per cent, over the net earnings of the
previous fiscal year, compared with an
increase of $96,329,141. or 13.9 per
cent, in 1906 over 1905.
"That the wages paid to railroad
employes in" the fiscal year now closed
exceeded $1,025,000,000, an increase of
more than $100,000,000 in the year."
The following estimated and actual
figures are given and comparisons -in

BIO PROJECT UNDER WAY.
Start Is Made With Building of Small
Railroad.
Construction has Just been started
on a forty-mile extension of a trifling
nitie raiiroaa to connect Houston
Tex., with the small town of Velasco,
near the mouth of the Brazos river.
This Is the Inconspicuous beginning of
me most important aeveiopment on
the gulf coast today. It means the
building of a new tide water outlet
for the produce of the great plains, a
rival ror uaiveston, with every natura
advantage to make it some day a great
seaport.
Government surveys of a former de
cade showed the importance of Velas
co, and the fact that it has remained
an out-of-the way village is because its
principal owners have held so tight to
rights of way and water front that the
railroads one by one gave up in dis
gust.
The town is served bv one tinv road
the Velasco, Brazos and Northern, and
this recently has been secured by the
kock island- risco interests, with
land for large extensions, terminal and
dockage. The line is being extended
to Houston, and will be called the
Houston and Brazos Valley. At Hous

In two years the railroad of the
United States have increased their
gross receipts nearly $500,000,000.
They have increased the volume of
their business even more than these
figures show, because the tendency of
ton mile rates has been downward. It
is an increase In Iwo years which ex
ceeds the entire gross earnings of the
81,000 miles of railroad in the United
States thirty years ago.
All previous yearly records for
operations and earnings of industrial
corporations have been broken during
the twelve months ended June 30.
Never before in the history of the lead
ing industrial concerns has such pros
perity prevailed as that which char
acterized the period from June 30,
1906. to yesterday. The iron, steel.

MAY GO INTO THE PLANT.
This Is Likely to Happen to Large
I'ullman Surplus. , -
Chicago, July 8. The management
ci tne funman is considering the ad
visability of using a portion of the
$10,000,000 or $12,000,000 net earn
ings for the current year in enlarge
ment or tne work, with a view to
manufacturing an Increased amount
of standard equipment. This plan is
said to be favored by the officials, de
spite tne iact that it may . necessitate
holding large quantities of equipment
unsold during the slow years of rail
roading. It is stated that a company
which is earning such enormous net
profits is in a position to run the dan
ger safely of an overstocked plant In
order to be ready to reap the harvest
when railroads are begging for equip
ment, which can not be procured at
any price.
This plan is said to be favored by
General Manager Richmond Dean,
who has made a remarkable record
since he succeeded the late T. H.
Wickes in the management of the
company, in April, 1905. Mr. Dean's
record with the Pullman company is
remarkable, because of the fact that he
has about doubled the output of the
plant, without materially Increasing the
facilities. By the employment of a
little more machinery, he found that it
was possible to work over 10,000 men
in a plant where 7,000 was formerly
considered tne maximum.
TO TEST ARKANSAS LAW.
Suit Brought Involving Validity of 3
Cent Fare.
Little Rock, Ark., July 8. The first
test of the Arkansas 2 cent railroad
rate law was started here Saturday,
when James B. Neeley filed suit
against the Pullman Car company for
$5,000 damages. Neeley alleges that
he purchased a ticket from Oklahoma
City to Hartford, Arlt., over the Rock
Island, and at the latter place tender
ed a Pullman conductor 2 cent i'are to
Little Rock, which was refused, and
he was compelled to pay 3 cents per
mile.
Sterling Chautauqua Opens.
Sterling. Kan., July 8. Governor
Hoch opened the Arkansas Valley Chau
tauqua with a message to Kansas people.
It was a strong presentation of the good
things to be found at home. The Chau
tauqua opened under very favorable
auspices. Senator Curtis speaks today.
RATES FOR STATE FAIRS.
They May Be Abolished by the West
ern Roads.
Chicago. July 8. Western railroads
are voting upon a proposition to abol
ish reduced rates for state fairs in all
the states where 2-cent laws have
been passed. It Is expected that the
proposition will carry. The regular
meeting of the Western Passenger as
sociation will be held tomorrow.
Among the subjects to be considered
is the issuance of mileage books. The
traveling men are insisting that mile
age books shall be issued, despite the
fact that they will no longer save the
traveler any money. They want them

Lawrence. Kan., July 8. Potato
growers who are . beginning to get into
their fields again after the heavy rain
amounting almost to a flood, of Satur
day of last week, say 'the storm dam
aged their fields much more than they
realized at the time. " : ' . .
The ground was already soaked full
of water when the heaviest rain fell
and since most potato fields in the Kaw
valley are very level the water stood
upon them in sheets,' remaining for two
or three days. The soil was washed
some, but the principal damage is from
sun-ecalding of the parts .that protrud
ed above tne water. ,
Most of the damage' reported from
washouts is in the valley of the little
Kaw, east of here, where it rained
steadily for three hours, fully three
inches of water falling. - The flood that
resulted brought that creek out of its
banks, and the stream found it way
across the fields to the river. Many
fields were badly washed out. ' John
Fore had 18 acres of potatoes which
were nearly all destroyed. The . pros
pect before the storm had been for 200
bushels to tne acre.
From Linwood east, particularly at
Loring, Lenape and Bonner Springs,
the trouble was worst. - Matt Hooper
estimates his loss at . la acres. " John
Nelson at Wilder says he lost 17. acres
which was at one time under six feet
of water. James Mann estimates his
loss at ten acres, and William Weld-
srube figures his loss at eight; acres.
Many others lost smaller areas, all. of
which had promisea gooa yields
tubers.
Hail did some damage In places. One
field of wheat was threshed standing
by it. .
WESTERN FARMERS DESPERATE.
Losing Much Wheat Because They Can
Not Secure Help.
Kinsley, Kan., July 8. Farmers are
losing considerable wheat in this and
Ford counties from sheer inability to get
enough help to save it. After months
of patient labor and care the farmer Is
desperate to see his efforts lost to him
and his family- because at the critical
week he cannot find people willing to
help save his harvest.' He has. a kind

To Get the Orient Une Completed Into
Wichita.
Wichita, Kan., July 8. A. H. Dickin
son, superintendent of the Orient rail
way, has returned from an extended trip
through the east.
Concerning the completion of the line
into this city, Mr. Dickinson said:
"We are practically tied up for want
of men. Nearly all our track layers at
Clinton, Ok., have quit and gone to the
harvest fields. We intend to begin lay
ing track in this city today, but can't
get the men. We need from thirty to
forty men at once, and although we are
offering $1.75 and $2 a day, we have not
as yet been able to pick up a man.
"As soon .as Foreman Ramsey can
organize his gangs, he will commence
laying track from the street car loop
at the corner of Emporia avenue ana
Bailey street to the junction with the
Frisco railroad at Gilbert street. .The
Wichita Railroad and Light company
will tear out Its loop in a day or two
now, and as soon as we can assemble
