A'ASMi.viTny, .Inly 22- Tim Intr
ttate Commerce Commission has granted
Ihe petition of tho express companies fn;
A modification of thc commission's or
ders by wlilch tlicy will be permitted to
Increase rates on n'i avenge of nearly
4 per rent, un nil packages weighing
less than inn poiinil!".
Tlio commission, nftor an extended
Investigation, found that what the ex
press companies sild was true, namely,
that they had been obliged, through
the reduced rates fixed by the commit
slon. to operate at i loss. It It esti
mated that the new order will mean
nbi ut J5.noo.nnn a year In additional
revenue for the evprrss companies.
This I tho second Mr case In which
tho commission has fouml It necessary
to reverse Its own findings. In the case
of the Kastcrn railroads the rommlsslnn
,at flint refused to grant the per cent.
tMte advance ami Issued an order grant
Ing only partial relief.
A few months later the commission
vat forced to reconsider Its decision and
n-nounced n nttich moio favorable order
tor the railroads. Now comes an ac
knowledgment by the commission that
the rats tlxed by It for the express
companies are Inadequate.
A Vn orulilr Onirn
(l Ad of thin Is regarded ery favorably
In railroad and other quarters In Wash
ington. It is taken as evidence of n
new era In the history of the lnter-
tate Commerce Commission and as In
dicating a lommond.ihle disposition to
correct past errors.
l.xpress rates under present condi
tio n are made up on the basis of three
factors; An allowance of 20 cents for
collection and delivery of each ship
meist, wh.ch dois not Miry with weight
or dstaticc ; a rail terminal allowance of
2li cents per 100 pjuinls. which varies
vwth the weight, but not the distance;
and the rail transiortatlon rate for
100 loundc which varies with the
nelght, tho distance and the zone.
Following the suggestion in thu peti
tion of the cxpreit companies the com
mission entered an order whlca will
modify existing conditions and permit
a trutisportatlon f thu first and sec
ond factors. The effect of tho change
will be to lreie.ise the allowance for'
il...i ,,i .i.iiv.rt- .h ,.inf of '
. i a 1
t cents for each shipment and reduce
the nn terminal allowance at the rate
ct one-twentieth of one cent per pound.
As the weight liicriases the 5 per cent.
lncie.it..' allowed for packages of tlva
pounds or lera Is gradually decieased,
bo that on hlpmentH of mors than
100 pounds there will be no reduction
from prei-ent rates, and on some pack
uge.i of blghty-tlve pounds and more
there will be no reduction.
The Jicnle lliivcl.
The scale allowed by the commission
cbove five pounds on Cist class traltlc
Is as follows:
Un pickag-'s of fiom to 29 pounds,
a t per cent. Incrc.ue; 3B to 19 iounds,
3 ptr cent.; 50 to 70 pounds, 2 per
' cent., 71 to '.'0 pounds, 1 per cent.
The commission nukes this exception:
Ceitaln weights will, However, nil-
fer MK ly from the llgures given due
to the disposition of fractions, , and not ,
nil shipments of over 03 pounds will be .
The commission sas further:
"While the above I.- representative of
the increases 0,, tlrst class traltlc. second
elass shipments vv. l be Increased 75 per
cent, of these amounts, as the second
rlnss rates are 7". per cent, of tne nrsi
c.ass rates. Substantially no commo

posed Increases. Under the plan pro
posed the distance a shipment Is hauled

may be affected by the casting off nf

The commission finds in Its report that
the revenues of the leading express com
panies decreased about 11,21 per cent, in
1915 from what they were the ear be
fore, while operating expenses decreased
only .'J''. per cent. The net operating
revenues decreased from S1.S53.43S in

First Fired Wank Shell
Near Liner.
Henry Hennett I.eary. a lawyer nt 55
Broadway, who was a passenger on the
Cunard liner Orduna, on her recent trip
wh-n she was shelled by n Herman nub
marine, made a utatoment yesterday
which sheds new light on the circum
stances of the attack.
Shortly after the encounter with the
submarine, whllo It was the subject of
general conversation on tho ship, Mr.
Leary says he wan told by the Marconi
operator and by an olllcer of the ship
that when the alleged torpedo hud been
seen by two of the passenger and by ths
watch on the after bridge the U-boat roe
to the surface and tired a blnnk shell
as a warning. When tho ship kept on
her courto the general attack began.
.Mr. Leary added that when llaron
Itosctikratiz and bis wife, who had
arisen at dawn and cald tney saw me
torpedo, rlrnt told their story they said
that the liner passed through the wake
of tnr torpedo. Indicating that the shot
had been tired ahead of the vessel,
whereas the otllolal statement made by
captam. with which I
pedo passed about ten feet from the
stern. Tho official statement of the
captain made no reference to any warn
ing from a blank shell.
The story of the occurrence told by
the lnwjer will be Incorporated in the
report to be made by Collector Malone
to Washington, It l understood.
Mr. Leary said esterday that he was
amazed during his stay of a week In

"It Is mockery," continues the writer,
who Is a soldier, " to ask men with blood
stained hearts to approach the table of

according to the otllolal census figures

In the 105 enumeration the Toosna-

this reservation Is under cultivation.
The enumerator found it utmost impos
sible to dfl.TiiiliH. whether the Inhabi
tants are cltloiiH or not They them
selves claim they do not know. It Is
generally accepted, however, In political
circles that they nr.- not citizens, al
though most of them are more negro
than Indian. It is generally understood
that the reservation Is not State or Gov
ernment property, except possibly by vir
tue of a very old leaM-.
Tho Oueldas were enumerated In the
1905 census, but not in tills year's, tho
reservation having reused.
Indians have been found by the recent
census tn be follow lug almost every
means of livelihood, ranging from piano
tuners to sextons, farmers to demon
strators or telephone operator.
The total Indian population of the
United States In P..10 was 2fi5.i!53, ex

Tnr.NTos, N. J.. July 22. Twenty-two
Jears ago New Jersey adopted the
State aid policy for Imlldlng good roads.
At first the cost was eienly divided be
tween the State and the counties, town-I
ships and property owners nlong tho lino
of the road to be Improved. Several ,
jears ago the property owners were
eliminated n.i contributors, and the ,
townships nearly so. Now thu Stats
and the counties bear the greater part
of tin. burden. '
For twenty-two years the material
men, contractors and politicians hao
been gradually building up combination,
until at present the taxpayers seem to
be bound and helpless. Notwithstand

In other dliectlons, llttlo has been done
toward breaklrg up the paving trust.
I'p to last November, according to the
