Commission Rules That Rates Should bs Reduced Ten Per Cent INTERNATIONAL NEWS SERVICE) WASHINiilOA, iiay Zi. Cam- , vinced there was no immediate pos sibility of the voluntary slashing of. railroad tales desired by Pxesl de ntHardlng, the Interstate Com merce Commission today decided unanimously that the rates should be reduced 10 per rant, and issued an order making such reductions effective on July 1. t The rate increases granted to the laliroads In 1S20 were ordered re duced as follows: Eastern group, 40 per cent to zx pr cent; Western group. S3 per tent to 21. 5 per cent. kowtbDrn, a&d mountain Pacific gftXi. 14 er ent to 12.5 per cent; inter-territorlal group, 33 1-3 per tent to 20 per cent. The comnssjan estimated that the new ra&s Would reader the railroads u return on the properties of approximately 5.75 per cent ''un der honest, efficient and economical n(anagement and reasonable expen ditures for, maintenance of way, structures and equipment." The new eductions were "effected by ordering decreases in the hori zontal rate Increases authorized by tUe commission on August 26, 1920. Itates which . have been reduced since that date are not affected by today's . order, remaining at their present 'level.' Chairman. McChord of the commis sion agreod to the reduction of rates, but expressed the opinion that ths fixed return of the rail roads should be 5.5 per cent Instead of 5.75 per cent. "I think that the times and con dition plainly demand reduction in rates on all materials and prod feots that af baaio La Industry and In our existence as a people to a level that business interests will recognize as the lowest available fet some time to" come,'! McChord 'srtd. "In my Judgment the general re ductions now decreed fall short of full attainment of the desired end." Chairman McChord alscj said that reductions on the general basis out lined by him should be applied like wise to passenger fares which were not Included in the decision handed down today. Commissioner EMlmui, while concurring in the reduction of rates expressed the ppinion that the labor board shosld act In some degree of co-operation ' "The reu4Mt f wages is In dependent of em action that we may Uke as. io rates'' said East man, ut thVMRwWh of rates is heeessarfly fnduencea by any ac tion that the labor board rhay take as to wages. At th.et present time the labor board has the -vtages of all railroad employes' yjujet consid eration, but .we are actlfig without 'awaltlnfc its decision and our action l, and roust necessarily be, based imwi fining wage. "Based upon existing wages we have not right to assume or to eon elude that wages will or ought to be reduasd. Nevertheless, these wages which constitute the chief factors in railroad operating expense, are now on trial and it is at least pos sible that they will be reduced. If they should be, we mu'st either re open our proceedings and make a new determination, to the confusion of industry, or the country must forego for a time so large a rdijc; tlon in freight rates as would thave been possible if we had postponed our decision." 'v'i ! Eastman said hia padfemenVwa it would have been . better f it j the ' "commission had announced sevora? weeks ago that its decision would be deferred until after the lAbor Board had acted. "Not for the5ur' pose of prejudging. the question,, of wages or of influencing the action of that body but for the purpose o so timing our own action that '.we might be assured that the rate which we are prescribing wouid'rbe the lowest possible under the law and the rates most likely to remain table for some considerable period of time.'' Commissioner Totter said while the result of future rerrtlpns are I in doubt, due to uncertainty as to the duration of the existing coal strike and other factors, he wa3l convinced that the forecast which the commission was required to make was Justified- y present pros pects. He favored a reduction in passenger tares; It was maintained by Commission er Jjirwls tat a ten per.cenj. reduc tion will, in the cue of many com mccfrtrea, iwerite pOceptlble In fluence in lowering the living costs, stimulating lnd-ustry, ameliorating economic conditions or triijglng us Into "more favorable and cqu-itabla relationships at home and abroad.

RQTAHflS DEAR DEBATE ISlIfflfID Question of Abolishing Pittsburgh " Plus En grosses Rotary Club. The Hammond Rotary club heard a most .interesting debate yesterday between Roscoe Woods, affirmative, and Herman Popjenhusen, negative, on the question - of "Abofishlng , Pitts burgs Plus." .Woods debated the history of the steel industry1 which started at Philadelphia, later establisheditself at Pittsburgh and more recently has developed large productive capacity in the Calumet district. The reasons, for the location of industry in this district are due to being clos to raw materails. close to the center of population ajid in dustry, and good distribution facili ties, and these result in the produc tion of steel in Gary' and Chicago approximately 18 per cent, cheaper than at' Pittsburgh. ; The so-called method of selling known as "Pittsburgh Plus" origi nated about 1901 and means that in competitive markets practically all steel is sold as though it originated at Pittsburgh. He stated that the actual .effects of this plan of selling is to place a tariff barrier around Chicago and western fabricating plants, accord ing to the testimony of several lo cal firms such as Graver and Keith Railway Equipment Company re garding the difficulty of competing under these conditions. He used certain comparisons to show the cost of the .delivery of fabricated products at intermediate points such a South Bend. Indianapolis and De troit. Herman Poppenhusen, In the re buttal, acknowledged the state ments presented by his opponent hut asserted that the situation was entirely logical besed upon the law of business applicable ' to every business: namely, the law of supply and demand. He stated that Chicago 'territory and Ks tributary district lying west and southwest was only producing 49 per cent of their requirements. The balance of the requirements were furnished from Pittsburgh and of course the Pittsburgh operators could only quote cost price plus freight to Chicago. This condition la analogous to other staple markets such as wheat, cotton and corn on which the price Is based on such distributing points as Chicago, New Orleans, Omaha and Kansas City. During times whn there is very little demand for steel, it 4s quoted in tlje local territory, to be deliver ed from local mills, at Pittsburgh miuus. He stated that should the Federal trade commission abolish the pres ent method of billing. It would re appear in different form as the local manufacturer would always sell at the price established by his com petitor. The only way to prevent this would be for the commission to attempt price fixing which, of course, is illogical and antagonistic to good business. It was Indicated by the subse quent discussion that if the local mills can produce for $6.00 per ton less than Pittsburgh mills and then sell this steel In the. local markets at a price equivalent to bringing teel in from Pittsburgh, they will receive approximately $13.00 per ton more than their competitors In1 Pittsburgh. The proper deduction! from this is that the district is des tined to be further developed in steel production on account of this excellent profit and should the pro duction exceed the requirements, e-ventually the competitive price wlll.be based upon local production entirely and not upon national pro duction. . Several members asked questions relative to the discussion but there was no consensus of opinion, regard ing the matter. There was a large delegation of Reparians from Gary present, ln eluding W. G. Gleason, Gary Mills! Captain ' Norton, Gary -Land Com pany: also Colonel Riley and C. A. Westburg of East Chicago. Cop Thought They Were Kidding Him CHICAGO, May 24 Nobody can kid Henry Brautlgan, who rides a motorcycle and rules the highway that runs through Wilmette, a north shore suburb.

A GENTLE A Dick Maddux, collector of inter nal revenue at Hammond once more finds it necessary to prod up those in his territory who are becoming lax in observing sonr.e of the regu lations of the Internal Revenue De partment. Proprietors of Ice cream parlors, soda fountains, sift drink places and similar refreshment stores know that the tax on ice cream was elim inated January 1.. This has causeci some Of the negligent regarding oth er features of the law which are still In force. ' "The removal of the ice cream tax did not relieve the situation as to the tax on syrups and other concoc tions which are used In manufact uring," Mys Mr. Maddux. "The law also requires they must regie ter and receive certificates of regis tration. These must he posted in their places of business bo that they may be seen by revenue Inspectors whenever they drop in. There is absolutely no chance for them to es cape at least a $10 compromise pen alty if they fail to do this even if their taxes are paid." ' These certificates, by -the way, are not transferable. Summer resort dances, entertain ments, motorcycle races and all forms Of public entertainments, where admission Is charged are al so coming in for some of the col lector's warning.

In cases where entertainments are given by recognized charitable in stitutions, organized and incorpor ated, those. In charge must visit the collector and file a certificate of ex emption under affidavit. Mr. Maddux also calls attention to the fact that all special stamp taxes issued to places of entertainment, pool and billiard rooms, taxlcabs. etc., expire June 30 and unless they are renewed will carry the 25 per cent penalty for failure to do so.

Beveridi.-e, Republican nominee for United States senator from In diana, declared in his address be fore the state Republican conven tion that there is no factionalism in the Republican party. ' Pledging himself to follow th leadership of President Harding, the former Bull . Moose chieftain praised in h'ghest terms the Junior senator from Indiana, James Eli Watson, keynote speaker of the convention and reoognlied leader of the "old guard" Republicans. Mr. Beveridgo did rot discuss the four-power jact or the conference on the limitatio nof armaments, but confined his speech to domestic af fairs. He characterized. "Washing ton's farewell address as the "wis est and most prophetic state paper ever penned." however, although he did not quote that part of the fare well address referring to "entang ling alliances." The senatorial nominee paid tri bute to Governor McCray who p.e ceded him on the platform, and praised Senator Watson as ".Indi ana's own gifted son, statesman and matchless orator." He dedjared America is to be congiatultaed on an official record "so splendid." "Republicans of Indiana, our na tional motto is eternally true," he declared, "and once again we will prove Its triumphant verity 'united we stand.' Today we Indi ana Republicans, x.r.sha ttered by factionalism, unweBkened by con flicting ambitions, unriven by an tagonistic policies and hostile prin ciples today we Republicans, with solid ranks and a single spirit be gin our harmonious advance toward a common victory in November. "During the coming battle and thereafter, we Indiana Republicans will strive In generous rivalry with our brothers and sister sin other states, to set highest of all . the standard of loyalty to and loce for that noble leader ot our party throughout the nation, the president of the United States, In whose ad mirable administration we take such pride, that wise, steady, patriotic. broad visioned statesman, that typ ical American and faithful Republi can, Warren G. Harding; and to him. ou rcaptain. we pledge our fealty and support." "The supreme and only immedi ate duty at hand In domestic af fairs is to rfstore American busi ness to full strength and vigor," declared Mr. Beverldge. saying the reduction of governmental expense. 'so well and efficlentl ybegun by President Harding, must go on." Revision of the tax laws "so that capital may fto wfrealy through tbs veins of industry" was urged by tke speaker, who pointed out that Just shipping rates an dadequate serv ice are Indispensable to prosperity. The term business has lost all omi nous meaning that it may have had and It now means merely th com mercial and Industrial activity of all the people, he said. "When, therefore, we proclaim our purpose to restore American busi ness, we make declaration of the return to rrosperity to all the American people." said Mr. Bever ldge, "and that is the patriotism of peace not so splendid and glory crowned as the resounding and mil itant patriotism of war. but patriot ism none the less genutne and true, bearing on its golden winds to every household in the land."
