ASSOCIATED PKKSS DISPATCH
W-.SHINGTON, June 22. Ipposing
views o! the effects of the proposed
increase of freight rates in western ter
ritory were laid before the interstate
commerce commission by representa
tives of the railroads, interested ship
pers and state railroad commissions,
t'. i Wright, representing many rail
roads, made the only argument in their
behalf which touched their financial
conditions. Clifford Thome, represent
ing several state commissions and as
sociations opposeil to increiise. replied.
Thorne said the railroad representa
tives presented groups of subsidiary
companies which were not paying prof
its, failing to mention roads with Rood
Mr. Wright maintained that condi
tions will bo fairly shown by the forty
one road.s in the western territory and
using them to give a composite picture.
He said this picture showed that labor
cost, taxes and the cost of maintenance
were all increasing and that the only
way in which railroads can meet these
increases, unless they reduce the ixum
ber of trains, is in increasing rates. He
declared there h;:a been much "wild
i talk" Cbout the present case being un
supported by evidence, but the rail
roads expected the commission to reach
a conclusion on the record of facts.
'Some folks'' replied Mr. Thorne,
have different ideas on these issues.
These gentlemen come before you with
a selected list of railroads and nothing
e!se. They have taken half a dozen
subsidiary companies of the Southern
Pacific railroad and put them in the
forty-one roads and left tile Southern
Pacific out. These subsidiaries are
cumins deficits anil the Southern Pa
cific is one of the best properties in
Mr. Thorne also said the: carriers
have also failed to Include in their com
posite itst the Great Northern, North
ern PaVBioVnd Union Pacific roads on
the grotlnd that -these are trans-cdn-tinental
lines, although the Atchison,
Topeka and Santa Ke, a trans-continental
road had been included. He as
serted the present request for an in
crease is but an entering wedge and if
the contention of the railroads that tfle
book cuju.ts the real value of the roads
and that" seven per cent waB a fair re
turn on such value, was held to be
pound doctrine, th,e people of the
country would find themselves in a few
years 'laying increased rates amount
ing to $;)i)4l.ti00,000 annually.
The hearing is expected to continue
the remainder of the week.

Troops Prevent Looting
CALEXICO, June 22. With United
States soldiers patrolling the streets
of Calexico to prevent looting, all was
quiet at one o'clock this morning, after
a reign of terror from eight o'clock in
the evening until midnight. In Mex
icali. across the border, the Villa troops
are preserving order.
It is reported that one man in Mex
ican was shot when caught looting. In
formation from the Mexican side is
very meagre but first refugees to ar
rive here stated that no less than
twelve had been killed and many in
jured. Probably many were killed here.
All the brick buildings here are de
serted, with most of them in ruins
or badly cracked. Two houses were
destroyed by fire and one business
building gutted. Hundreds are sleep
ing in the open tonight and tele
phone wires are demoralized. Scenes
of indescribable conf.ision prevailed
when the buildings clattered to the
grounds. Rumblings of the quake
were plainly heard here, indicating a
disturbance close at hand.

DENY FRICTION IN
pear logical for the few Americans who
remained in the Yaqui valley to depart
and not place their lives in jeopardy,
rather than plunge two friendly na
tions into a disagreement.
"However, every garrion will be giv
en order to endeavor to afford the
Americans in question ample protection
and if emergencies should require them
to depart adequate escort will be fur
nished them. Fifteen hundred Mexican
troops are now available for this pro
tection and General Sosa is now in the
valley to command and his officer
would understand a landing would be
made under only the most urgent ne
cessity and only for the protection of
American lives, yet the masses might
miwlnterpret this action and thus cause
trouble for Americans all Tilong the
