ws begun here today before Commis
sioner W. M. I'sniels.
C. C. Wright, general Solicitor of the
Chicago Northwestern Hallway com
pany, appeared as chief of counsel for
the railroads. Clifford Thome, chairmen
of the Iowa State Hallway comnmslon.
who oprosed, the roads In the eastern
rate case, appeared in a similar captrlty
her, representing eluhleen state railway
commissions which oppose the advance,
Mr. Thome said that among the or
ganisations which. would oppose the rate
Increase would be the American National
Ufa Block association the National
Council ot Farmers Co-operative - asso
ciations, the National Broom Manufac
turers' association, the Corn Belt Meat
rackera' association and several hundred
firms.
'The railroads will continue their pre
sentation ot the esse until March SO,
when the shippers will be heard.
. Adders ot Mr. WriK.
Mr. Wright. In opening the case for the
forty-one railroads Interested, said that
the carriers In the country Involved had
bsen called ' upon during the last seven
years to Invest more than 1100.000,009 a
year la additions and betterments, but
that there had been only a slight Increase
In their revenues. During these years, he
asserted, the roads had not earned what
the oourta have held to be a fair rate of
return upon their properties, The ratio
of return upon investment had been de
creasing and the operating ratio increas
ing. .
sir. Wright called attention to the fact
.that In 1810 the Interstate Commerce com
mission. In denying - advances at that
time, had said that If the then fears of
the carriers should b subsequently real
' tied the commission "will not hesitate to
give Its sanction to Increases which wilt
be reasonable." These fears, Mr. Wright
said, had been "more than realised."
The (see would not be presented, he
explained, as the application of any single
road, as the question did not depend
either npon- the prosperity of the strong
est road or the needs of the Weakest,
"but upon the return of the prosperity
of all tils' roads."
Qraln, grain products, live stock, fresh
meats and .packing house products, coal,
hay, fruits, vegetables and cotton piece
goods were named by the attorney a the
principal commodities 1 upon which the
advance was sought. These, he said, had
been treated .separately "with a view of
establishing a more equitable relation of
rues by advancing those which were too
low."

j Waste More Time. '
Mr. -Thome outlined the basis of the
shippers opposition to the proposed increases-
Me asserted that sufficient time
had not been allowed for an Investigation
by the shippers and that later more time
time would be asked.
"No case between private cltlsens ever
tried before this commission, or before
any tribunal In recorded history, has In
volved such a stupendous sum of money
as that, which Is at stake In this proceed
ing.' said Mr. Thorns.
"Though our Investigation has not been
completed, that which ws have to offer
will show conclusively as to representa
tive railroad companies In this territory:
"That' the credit of these western rail
way companies is better than that of
representative companies In any other
11ns of business In the United States.
. Depreoaloa (irural.
' That the depression of the last year
was not due to freight or passenger rates,
wsa not peculiar to the railroad Industry,
nut applied to business generally
throughout the world.
"That, disregarding extremely prosper
ous aad extremely lean years, which
corns to all business, these western rail
way companies during recent ordinarily
normal years have earned more both
sroslsl and net per mile of line and per
train than ever la their klstorv. -
"That these oompeuW have ben able
to maintain their properties during re
cent years at a higher standard than ever
before lu their history, and they have
1 been also set aside large sums of money
vut of earnings for betterments and im
provements and outside Investments,
which should have been made from cap
ital. Wkt Shall Payt
"Tersely stated, the Issues In this case
center .around the one question: Who
shall pay for the additions and better
ments to railroad property? The public In
terest demands better service, safer trans
portation and Improved facilities, but It
also demands that the railroads them
selves shall build these Improvements and
the public will thea pay a reasonable re
turn on their value. We want these bet
terments, but Justice demands that ws
shall not pay for their construction and
thea pay an annual return lx ths rail
roads on what we build."
The first witness called to the stand
was C. r. gchaff. president of the Mis
souri. Kansas tt Texas Railway company.

and raise them in times of business de

cording to a dispatch received by
the Renter Telegraph company from
Its correspondent at Athens. The
text of the dispatch follows:
The bombardment of the Inner forts of
the Dardanelles was resumed Thursday
morning. Ten big warships took part In
the operations. According to a British
officer, only two of the Turkish forts re
main Intact. Allied landing parties found

BERLIN, March !.-Vla I.ondon.)-At-tsches
of the Turkish embassy here pro
fess to i be unconcerned regarding the
bombardment of the Dardanelles ft-rts by
the great allied fleet. They declare the
fortifications are Impregnable, that the
landing of troops at the entrance to the
straits Is Impossible and that any at
tempt to land a force at some point along 1
the shore of the Gulf of Haros would re
quire more men thsn the allies con Con
centrate, leaving out of consideration the
rtrong Turkish forces stationed at all
threatened points.
The Constantinople correspondent of the
Krankfurther Zcltung sends his paper an
Interview with linver - I'asha, In which
the chief of the Turkltih general staff
la said to have declared that the damage
to the outer forts was less than had been
reported, but that these forts are the
oldest of the entire line and their esrly
reduction always had been expected If a

WORK OF WILSON'S CONGRESS
Underwood-Slmmonl Tariff, Federal
Reserve and Panama Tolls Act
Most Important.
ADMINISTRATION BILLS FAIL
WASHINGTON, March -The Plxty
thlrd congress, first under complete
domination of the democratic party since
1, ended today a't Boon.
It had been In almost continuous ses
sion since President Wilson's Inauguration
two years ago. Beginning with an extra
seission called by the president April T,
1!13. the congress hss worked actually
6.17 days.
Much Important legislation was sccom
pllshed, but much contemplated, some of
it hard pressed by the president and
party leaders, was left undone. Fore
most In the enactments of the Sixty
third congress were:
Tho Underwood-Simmons tariff act.
with the Income tax, which replaced the
Payne-Aldrlch tariff law.
The federal reserve act, reorganising
the currency system.
Anti-trust laws to supplement the Sher
man act. Including the Clayton law and
Federal , Trade commission act, the former
providing for punishment ot Individuals
who violate business regulations and the
latter establishing a government Insti
tution to aid In keeping business within
the law.
Repeal of the Panama canal tolls ex
emption for American coaat-wlse ship
ping. Act directing the building at a coat ot
t"w,000,000 of a government railroad to the
mineral fields oft Alaska.
Act to regulat cotton exchanges and
lo penalise dealings in purely speculative
cotton future soles.
A special Internal revenue tsx, com
monly called the "war tax."
A government war risk Insurance bu
reau to Insure American ships sgalnst
the hazards of war, and an act providing
for tho transfer of foreign-owned or built
ships to Amerlcsn registry.
Measarea that Failed.
Of those measures which tailed of en
actment or could not be considered for
lack ot time, the following are regarded
by democratlo leaders as paramount.
Bill for government purchaso or charter
of transoceanic ships for the establish
ment of an American merchant marine,
which encountered the moat stubborn
filibuster In the history of the senate.
created an Insurgent movement In the
democratic ranks . and , held up general
legislation for weeks of the last session.
The immigration bill, including a lit
eracy test for admission of aliens, which
passed both bouses, wss vetoed by Presi
dent Wilson and failed by a narrow
margin to repass the house on a motion
to overturn the veto.
Conservation measures urged by tho
president to provide a new system for
leasing of water power sites and a leas
ing system to open tho mineral resources
of the country. '
Bill to enlarge the measure ot Philip
pine self-government and lo extend
promise ot ultimate Independence to
Filipino people,' a measure which passed
tho house and was approved by a senate
committee.
Regulation by the Interstats Commerce
commission of tho Issue of railroad

ministratton's anti-trust program., i -

throughout congress." ' '"
.' Hills De wltri t onVress'. .'. ;
In addition to the foregoing, scores of
general legislative bills covering a wide
isotie of subjects died with the end of
ths congress, among them, measures for
federal road Improvement, geaeral water
way development, reorganisation of the
civil servVe, to prohibit importation of
convict made goods and several measures
for reorganization of the army. '
The last session of the congress waa
notable,, too, for the allure of two great
issues, national prohibition 'and woman
suffrage. Proposed constitutional amend
ments precipitated two of the most -
citing legislative battles In tha history of
'he House of Representatives both meas
ures falling to receive a necessary , two-
thirds vote.'
