niA controversy originated with a

Jones of thia city, representative fron
Polk and Lincoln countiea. After a
bearing before the comuiUsioneis, an
order was made on April 2D,' li0!,
finding the existing rates unreason
able, and prescribing new rates for th
future. The rates fixed were slight
ly lower than those subsequently pre
scribed by the amended order; tor
Ins ance the Por land - Huntington
rate was $4, the order April 29 fixed
it at $3 and the amended order Just
Issued fixes It at 3.25.
Before the service of the order on
the express company. It appeared the
commission by. J. VV. Rogers, its sup
erintendent, of Salt Lake, and Wal
lace McCamant, Its attorney, and re
quested further consideration of the
matter and conferences, with a view
to an adjustment without resort to
lltlsatlon to contest the commission's
After a number of conferences,
propositions and counter propositions
rates set forth in tha order were
adopted. The new tariff has been
chocked with care to avoid discrep
ancy, such as a greater charge for a
shorter Intermediate haul than Uie
longer haul, rate exceeding the sum
of intermediate local rates, and de
partures from a fair mileage scale
The original order was made to ap
ply only as to articles taking mer
chandise and general, special rates,
and not to shipments' of coin, fruit,
