CHICAGO, April 17-The Tribune to
Riuliuiid oflicials openly charge that
the big packing corporations for years
have been cheating the railroads by
mis-stating the ehumcter of the goods
they were shipping and by shipping
heavier packages than the bills of lad
ing called for.
Other big shippers in the east also
are doing things that have helped to
diminish the revenues which the rail
roads ought to have received. It as
been estimated by the railroads that
the' pucker alone beat the eastern
roads out of $150,000 a year.
What they owe all the roads out of
Chicago is problematical, but it h esti
mated at $5,000,000. The railway men
Hay they have known all these things
for years and in a way have remon
strated with the packers and other
companies which were cheating them,
but within the last few weeks they
have made a determined effort to bring
about a great reform and they intimate
strongly that unless the shippers make
restitution there will be a grand expose
before the interstate commerce commission.

Edwin Booth, begs to express her deep
appreciation and" to assure the players
of her sympathy and approval of their

rate her father's achievement, as well
as his personal virtues. Mrs. Grossmann
hopes that the players may meet with
sucee their worthy undertaking merits."
Though no especial efforts had been
made before yesterday's meeting, near
ly $tK00 has already been subscribed
toward a Booth memorial. The form
with which the memorial shall take has
not been determined. Various plans
have been suggested. The one that ap-

that the monument whatever it may j
be, shall be erected in Graminercy
.square, within the park, or possibly set j
into the park fence, so as to face the ;
