MAY CHANGE PRESENT SYSTEM Officials of Roado Proparad to AdvocatS Federal incorporation, Supervision of Securities and Extension of Authority of Interstate Commerce Commission. Washington, Nov. 20.—Ten members of Congress, five Senators and five members of the House of Representa tives, began here today an inquiry into the subject of public control and su pervision of railroads that may lead to the revolutionizing of the whole scheme of governmental regulation of the coun try's transportation lines. Incidentally the committee is to look into the ques tion of government ownership of rail ways, telephone and telegraph lines and express companies. The members of the committee which will conduct this important in vestigation are Senator Newlands of Nevada, chairman; Senators Robinson of Arkansas, Underwood of Alabama, Cummins of Iowa and Brandegee of Connecticut, and Representatives Ad amson of Georgia, Sims of Tennessee, Cullop of Indiana, Esch of Wisconsin and Hamilton of Michigan. The in quiry was recommended by President Wilson In his message to Congress in December of last year. He described as its purpose to determine what could be done "for bettering the condition® under which the railroads are operated and for making them more useful serv ants of the country as a whole. Prominent Mon as Witnesses. In order to obtain the views of all interests affected by the operations of the transportation lines the committee has invited prominent shippers, bank ers, representatives of commercial or ganizations, railway executives, econo mists and others to appear before them. % The first to be heard are railroad •ommlssioners of various states who began their evidence today. Their testimony is directed chiefly to oppos ing any enlargement of the federal authority over commerce that would detract from the powers now exercised by state bodies. They will be followed shortly by officials of railway labot >rganizations who are expected to reg ister their opposition to the increase of governmental authority over wages ind conditions of labor. Chief interest in the hearings een ers in the proposals that will be put orward by representatives of the rail roads, for it is reported that they will advocate an extension of federal an horit.v over rates and securities to the Tactical exclusion of state control of hese matters. It is understood also that ■ hey will go on record in favor of fed ral incorporation of all railroad lines. Legislativ« Program of Railroads. From an authoritative source is ob ained the following outline of the leg islative program which the railroads will ask the committee to consider in its investigation: They will endeavor to demonstrate to the commission that one of the principal defects In the pres ent system of railroad regulation is the lack of coordination resulting from the simultaneous and conflicting regu lation by the federal government and by the 48 states. They will, therefore, ask that entire governmental control of the rates and practices of interstate carriers, except purely local matters, be placed In the hands of a federal body so that interstate traffic may be regulated without reference to state lines, leaving to the state commissions jurisdiction only over local matters and local public utilities. As a part of this plan,, a compulsory system of federal Incorporation is to be recommended, accompanied by federal supervision of railroad stock and bond issues. A reorganization of the Interstate Commerce Commission will be asked, In-order to enable the commisjlon prop erly to exercise its increa It is also proposed that the preparation and prosecution of cases against the railroads shall be delegated to some other agency of the government, possi bly the Department of Justice, so that the commission may devote its ener gies to its administrative functions. With the commission thus relieved of some of its present duties and equip ped to handle its business more prompt ly, the railroads will urge that the pe riod during which the commission may now suspend proposed increases in fates be reduced from ten mbnths to 50 days, with provision for reparation to be paid to the shippers if the ad vance shall be declared unreasonable. They will also ask that the commis sion be given the power to prescribe minimum as well as maximum rates so that in meeting complaints of dis crimination the commission may order the advance of a rate which it consid ers too low. One of the most important recom mendations for which the railroads will ask favorable consideration la that the commission be specifically authorized to take into account in rate regulation the effect of rates upon total earnings in the light of ex penses. While the Newlands Committee Is required, under the resolution creat ing it, to submit a report by January 0 next, it is not anticipated tbat the «imittee will have come anywhere completing its labors then.
