Carriers Urge Commission to
Pass Specifically on Need
for More Revenue.
IMPORTANCE POINTED OUT
Issue Also Raised as to Method to
Be Pursued When There Are
State-Made Schedules lower
Than Those Proposed.
WASHINGTON. Sept. 28. Formal pe
tition asking- for a rehearing In the
"Western advance freight-rate case was
filed today with the Interstate Com
merce Commission by representatives
of the Western carriers. Kates which
the roads want revised are on meats,
livestock and food products.
The principal ground on which the
reopening is asked is the failure of
the Commission to pass on the need of
the carriers for additional revenue,
which, the petition says, is a funda
mental issue." The petition probably
will be considered within a few weeks.
There are some things, in the opin
ion of the Commission, in this case,"
eaid the petition, "which are so vital,
not only as affecting the advance pro
posed, but also as affecting- the ulti
mate welfare of the railroads and of
the public, that we do not hesitate to
ask this Commission to reopen the case,
that they may be more fully presented.
Important Que.tion Raised.
"We desire to speak plainly as to the
effects of this opinion, both upon the
transportation problem of this country
ana upon the tuture of this Commis
eion. The almost unlimited power of
this Commission makes it imperative
that it shall most carefully consider
and weigh the effect of its opinions
upon so important questions as these
"In view of the fact that there is no
adequate review of the Commission's
opinion, it is the more proper that re
argument of the questions be granted."
The carriers declare that there were
15,000 pages of evidence in the case
and that not all the Commissioners had
an opportunity to hear it presented,
and asserted that every fact laid be
fore the Commission in the so-called
'5 per cent case, in which the increase
was granted to the Eastern carriers,
was to be found also in their case.
Flndintc as to Revenue Xeeded.
Emphasis was placed on the need
for a specific finding as to the ade
quacy of the railroad revenues, but the
petition brought forward also the
question of the method to be pursued
when there is evidence to show that
there are lower state-made rates than
the proposed rates.
In the original case the railroads
argued that If all Increases asked for
were granted they would receive add
tional yearly revenue amounting to
about $10,000,000. After the Commis
eion s opinion was rendered, the in
creases allowed would amount to about
11.600,000 a year.

the disaster of yesterday, in which a

more than two score persons. Injuries

"But, no proposal has been made to
obtain a statute that would eliminate
Sunday newspapers in this state. The
Sunday law which has been upheld by
the Supreme Court is not of uniform
application. It provides a rest day for
a few classes only, and for this reason
it should be supplemented by addl

Fear of Loss of Louisiana Vote Hinted
as Cause for Proposal to Re-

ST. LOUIS, Sept. 28. Republican
leaders from all parts of Missouri to
night attended the banquet given here
by the State and St. Louis Republican
Committees as a preliminary to tn
campaign of 1916.
The principal addresses were made by
United States Senator Weeks of Massa
chusetts. Representative Mann of Illi

to task for its tariff policy and legis

student of the tariff long before the

thing to do with this unheard of conversion?
"More sugar has been imported to the
United States under the Underwood tar

States does not benefit by this increase
because sugar is free and the consumer
does not benefit because sugar is nign
