The Inter state Commerce commission today prescribed the method of procedure in the IS per -cent rate advance cases by permitting the railroads to file supplemental tariffs covering the in crease. This is in line with the com mission's tentative order entered a few days ago. The new tariff will be subject to protest, suspension, complaint, inves tigation and correction, the commis sion announced, and their riling is only preliminary to detailed consider ation of the application and does not dispose of the cases. Indications are that the commis sion will soon set dates for hearings at which the merits of the increases will be considered and shippers will be given an opportunity to state their views. The effective date of the order, should it be finally approved, is changed from June 1 to July 1. Exports of Sugar From America Are Suspended New York. April 25.
