Increased Freight Rates.
Beginning June 1, there will be a
considerable increase ia freight rates
from -western territory to the Atlan
tic seaboard. Already some tariffs
hsv9 been filed by the railroads with
the interstate . commerce commission,
and more. will be filed later.
This is the first step taken by the
railroads which appears to indicate a
purpose .to increase freight rates gen
erally throughout the country. They
will give aa an excuse that their oper
ates expenses are increasing, but will
not reply to Senator Dolliver's charge
that they have increased capital more
than three billions without adding a
dollars' worth of property.

Unworthy of Being Saved.
Senator Clapp, republican, of Minne
sota, evidently feels little hope of his
party being endorsed by the people.
In a speech in the senate on Tuesday,
after ecoring his republican colleagues
for their remissness in responding to
the demands of the people, and their
failure to carry out the pledges of the
last national - platform, the senator
said he thought, however, if congress
"would pass such a railroad bill and
such a postal savings bank bill as
would he acceptable, and give the pub
lic a tariff commission his party still
might be saved."
Senator Clapp knew when he made
this statement that congress would do
nothing of .the kind, he suggested, and
his words of warning were nothiag
less than a confession that the republi
can party w&b unworthy of being
saved and was doomed to overthrow.
Democrats and Insurgents Scored
Tho democratic membership of the
houe forced the republicans to adopt
an amendment to the Wickersham
railroad , bill making telegraph and
telephone companies common carriers
and placing them under the interstate
commerce commission. A sufficient
number of progressives came over to
make the allies masters of the house
for the time being.
The action was something of a slap
at President , Taft. as he has not rec
ommended that telegraph companies
be placed'under the jurisdiction of the
Interstate Commerce commission, and
euch a provision wae not provided for
In the Wickersham bliL ,
; The plank in the national democrat
ic platform of 1905 wnich the demo
crats of the house forced into the pres
ident's bill was as follows: "We
pledge the democratic party to the
enactment of a law to regulate, under
the jurisdiction of the interstate com
merce commission, the rates and serv
ices of telegraph and telephone com
panies engaged in the transmission of
messages between the states."
The republican platform was silent
on the subject.' ".' .
