MTES OF GARRIERS FIRST RULING RENDERED IN SERIES OF CA8E8 INVOLVING JURISDICTION OF STATES. Order« the Railroad* of New York to EeUbllah Passenger and Baggage ' Ratee on Intentât« Traffic to Conform to Intentât« Rate. Washington.—In Its first decision on the right of the federal government under the transportation act to re quire railroad rates within a state to correspond to the higher levels of Interstate tariffs, the Interstate com merce commission on November 18 ordered the railroads of New York to establish passenger and baggage rates on lntmstate traffic conforming to advanced Interstate schedules. Sim ilar proceedings are pending affecting more than half the states In the union. By Its order of last August, the com mission authorised In the New York region an Increase of 40 per cent In freight rates, 20 per cent in passenger rates, excess baggage charges and rates on milk and cream and also a surcharge of 60 per cent on Pullman accommodations. The New York pub lic service commission granted the freight advance except milk, but de nied the other Increases within the state, and the carriers appeuled to the Interstate commerce commission. The federal body held that there was a general obligation resting upon It "to exercise control over Intrastate commerce so far as it affects Inter state commerce." "The decisive factor," the ruling said, "Is whether the rates under considera tion Injuriously affect Interstate com merce." Congress directed that rates be al- lowed which would yield an aggregate return of from to 0 per cent on the value of the railway properties, he commission stated. ---- HARDING SAILS FOR PANAMA President-elect Decile«« Invitation tc Pay Mexico a Visit New Orleans.—President-elect War ren O.

Washington.—The British embassy has notified the committee of one hun dred investigating conditions In Ire land that It did not approve of the purposes to be served or the methods to be followed In the committee's hear ings to be held here, and therefore It could not accept the committee's In vitation to be represented.

The embassy also informed the com mittee through Mr. Vlllnrd that while the British government would not with hold passports from any person wish ing to appear before the committee.

The Melanchoty Days Have Come A' ""//A 1Ç REPORT AGREEMENT ON EXCLUSION LAW JAPANE8E NEWSPAPERS SAY SETTLEMENT OF VEXED I3SUE HAS BEEN REACHED. It Is Understood That Japanese Now in America Will Be Guaranteed Equality of Treatment With Other Aliens. Washington.—Newspapers of Tokio report that the Japanese and American governments have reached an agree ment in principle relative to the ex clusion of Japanese laborers from the United States. It Is asserted, however, that there is a disagreement regard ing the methods to be employed. America is understood to desire pro visions for exclusion embodied In a treaty, say the Tokio newspapers, but Japan, It Is said, regards this proced ure as humiliating and as forming a precedent she might be forced to fol low In treaties negotiated in the fu ture. Japan Is declared to consider that measures prohibiting her subjects from emigrating can be taken only on her own Initiative. In other respects the negotiations are progressing, it is reported, and once this point has been settled an agreement may be expected. Whether the exclusion of Japanese laborers from the United States shall be effected by a provision of the new treaty or through a decree promulgat ed by the Japanese government Is said at Washington to be regarded not as a question of principle, but solely of ex pediency. The American position is that the In clusion of such provision In the treaty would facilitate ratification of the pact by the senate! The Japanese po sition is that the treaty would be more likely to receive popular support In Ja pan If reliance was had entirely upon the willingness of the Japanese authorities to execute faithfully an In ternal law or decree covering the sub ject. While there will be no naturaliza tion provisions In the treaty, it Is un derstood that the Japanese now in America will be guaranteed equality of treatment with other aliens In the same treaty relations, and complaint of discrimination will be met by a dec laration that any restrictions Imposed upon either Japanese In America or Americans In Japan shall be reciprocal. In other words Americans in Japan will be treated just as are the Japanese In America, and vice versa. FACES CHARGE OF EXTORTION Building Trades Council Chief Indicted In Connection With Probe.
