Railroad rate experts have begun
preparing blanket rate schedules in
creasing transportation costs on a
percentage basis. These will be pre
sented to the interstate commerce
commission five days before the pro
posed effective dates. Rate sheets
will be supplemented by printed
tariffs containing rates for all ter
ritories and on all commodities as
soon as the many details can be
worked out. Until this is done, local
rail officials will compute the new
rates and charges for their territories
by adding 20 per cent to existing

Treasury Drain to End.

effect prior to September 1 the drain
on the treasury under the guarantee
provisions of the transportation act
likely will be ended before expira
tion of the government's guarantee of
earnings. Officials estimated today
that by September 1 the guarantee
previsions would .have cost the gov
ernment approximately J650.000.000.
The government has been obliged
to continue the $75,000,000 monthly
rental payment in effect during fed
eral control and meet deficits, not
covered by the rental amount, sus
tained by individual carriers. In
cluded In these deficits is that por
tion of the $600,000,000 wage award
from May 1 to September 1. when
the guaranty expires.
This was officially estimated at
$206,000,000. Thus the people will pay
one-third of the increased wages for
railroad employes in taxes.
With the amount guaranteed the
carriers this year and the claims of
the lines for compensation under
their contracts with the railroad ad
ministration, the roads will have
cost the government approximately a
billion and a half dollans since De

and the income from passenger traf

was explained, were based on the
assumption that intrastate rates
would be increased correspondingly.
Need for increases in intrastate
rates was set forth in a report for

public utility commissions by the
three state commissioners who sat
with the interstate commerce com

CORVALLIS. Or., Aug. 2. (Special.)
Two children and two women, one
of whom tonight was near death,
were injured last night when an au
tomobile driven by J. C. Carson,
backed over two embankments south
of Yachata and landed upside down
on the beach below. One of Carson's
daughters, aged 3, sustained a . cut
that nearly tore her ear away, the
other, aged 5, sustained a fractured
skull; Mrs. Carson, who is about to
become a mother again, was injured
internally so seriously that tonight
it was thought that she could not
recover, and Mrs. Carson's mother
sustained a crushed ankle.

At the time of the accident the car
was ascending the grade on the
Florence-Yachats road. The engine
was "killed," when Mr. Carson tried
to shift gears at a point where the
road runs about 100 feet above the
beach and on the point of a bluff.
As Carson left the car to crank the
engine, the machine started backing
down the hill.
Carson made a run for the steering
wheel and managed to keep the car
in the road for about 50 feet, when it
turned off down a steep bank some
40 feet high. Reaching the bottom,
still upright, the car proceeded up a
short Incline and hurled over a pre
cipitous cliff onto the beach 30 or
40 feet below.
Mr. Carson, without realizing what
he was doing, leaped to the beach.
He escaped injury, but found the
rest of the party unconscious on the

Mildred Harris Charges
Comedian With Cruelty.
MARRIAGE SECRET 4 MONTHS
Husband Refuses to Look at
$750,000 FILMS TIED UP
Court Restrains Disposal or Pic
lures Xow lie lug Made; Wife
Asks Share of Property.
LOS ANGELES. Cal.. Aug. 2. (Spe
cial.) The storm that has hovered
over the Charlie Chaplin household
for months past broke suddenly late
yesterday afternoon when Mrs. Mil
dred Harris Chaplin filed suit for
divorce on the grounds of extreme
mental cruelty and bodily injury.
This action had been expected for
long time. She told a friend last
March that unless her husband re
turned to her she would go to court.
Mrs. Chaplin, in the suit, also asked
that her husband be restrained from
disposing ot his interest in certain
motion picture films and that he be
required to account to the court for
sums received by him on her ac
count during their married life and
that if such sums are Insufficient to
enable her to live in her present sta
tion of life, to make such order as
the court seems equitable and just.
Restraining Order Issned.
A temporary restraining order was
issued by Presiding Judge Jackson
and made returnable before Judge
Taft on Monday.
Mrs. Chaplin's complaint, as filed
by Attorney W. I. Gilbert in 14 pages
of typewritten paper, expounded the
numerous incidents in her brief mar
ital life that she said brought sor
row and a nervous collapse upon her.
The charges, in brief, were that their
marriage on October 23. 191" was kept
secret for four months at the re
quest of .her husband, who, she said,
stated that if news of it became pub
lic it would seriously interfere with
his professional career.
Mrs. Chaplin also charged that four
weeks after the marriage she was
taken to a hospital as a result of a
nervous breakdown. News of the
marriage leaked out and. as a result
of the publications, she said, she suf
fered by her husband's course of con
duct and criticisms regarding her
film contract, which so upset her
nerves that she was again confined
to her bed.
Abase Charted to Husband.
Following the incident, her hus
band frequently stayed out until 2
and 4 o'clock in the morning, the com
plaint averred, and oftentimes all
night. On the first Christmas eve
following their marriage, she said,
she was still confined to her bed
but arose against her physician's
wishes to be with her husband, but
her illness compelled her to return
home at midnight, and he refused to
take her home. She declared it was
about 5 A. M. before he returned.
She sa'd that following this episode
she went to New York upon the ad
vice of her physician and though
without funds, her husband, who was
earning more than $100,000 a year, de
clined to send her any money in ex
cess of $250. A baby was expected In
their family, so she obtained furni
ture for the nursery, but Mr. Chaplin,
upon receiving the bill, became very
abusive and insisted he would not pay
it, Mrs. Chaplin alleged, and that she
then arranged to pay for It by in
stalments. She further declared that
when they were married it was
agreed that Mr. Chaplin pay her $30
weekly for expenses, but that he up-
