Washington, July 21.—The secretary
of the interior has approved an increase
o f stock in the .Umatilla Water-Users'
association front 9,000 to 22.000 shares.
The association, made up o f landowners
under the Umatilla irrigation project,
was organized with a capital stock of
$540.000, divided into 9.000 shares of a
par value o f $60 each. The project has
since been extended to include a total
of 22.000 acres, and in order that there
may be one share o f stock for each acre

appropriations amounting to $1.008.397,-

San Francisco. July 20.—The South
ern Pacific and Santa Fe railroads and
the Pacific Mail Steamship company are
preparing to have a hearing before
the interstate commerce commission on
the question of transcontinental rates
for goods shipped across the Pacific
ocean. The new rule o f the commis
sion compels the railroads to charge the
same price for these goods as for any
other, whereas it had been customary
for the railroads to make this rate
cheaper to the steamship companies.
The information that the interstate
commerce commission has decided to
postpone until Octobor the day on which
the rate would become effective, because
o f a protest from Japan, has given the
railroads and steamship company time
The plea will be made to the inter
state commerce commission that steam
ers traveling through the Suez canal
will get the trade if the transcontinental
roads are not allowed to juggle rates
as they please. The steamers change
thiir rates often and quickly, they say.
and if the American railroads are com
pelled to adhere to the published rate
they will lose this oriental business.

Washington, July 20.—The interstate
commerce commission may take action
on the increased freight rates agreed to
at the meeting o f the Southeastern
Freight association and the Southeast
ern Mississippi Valley association, at
Louisville, Ky., Saturday, when the new
tariffs are filed with the commission by
the roads having membership in these
two associations. Action cannot be
taken by the commission on its own in
itiative or on the complaints o f ship
pers or shippers’ associations, i f the"
interstate commerce commission should
find that the increase in freight rates
was made through concerted action, and
that there was evidence that the Sher
man anti-trust law was violated, atten
tion will in all probability be called to
In- speaking o f the powers of the in
terstate commerce commission where an
advance in freight rates has been made
by any railroad. Chairman Knapp, of
the commission, said :
"The railroads must file their tariffs
with the commission with 30 days’ no
tice o f a contemplated change. Changes
in rates between competitive points must
be made simultaneously by all the roads
operating between those points. This
in a measure protects the shiuticr. When
a railroad files notice o f an increase in
its freight rates the commission can on
its own motion make an investigation as
lo the reasonableness of the advance.
"In a case where the commission acts
on its own motion, however, it cannot
issue an order. If a shipper makes a
cc-mplaint to the commission against a
railroad charging an unjust increase of
rates, each side is given a hearing, and
the commission can then issue an order
based on its decision in the case.”
Should it develop that the increase
was made through concerted action, the
commission would very likely refer the
matter to the attorney general. The
department o f justice can also call upon
the commission to investigate as to the
reasonableness in rates.
Rate A p p e a l
ed that he had not been officially in
formed that the transcontinental rail
roads would contest the com m ission's
derision in the lumber rate cases, but
be has heard in an indirect way that
they are considering such a course.

Chicago, July 18.— A special to the
Tribune from W ashington says;
In the opinion o f John Clements, a
member o f the interstate com m erce
commission, the proposed general in
crease in freight rates discussed in
New Y ork yesterday by the presi
dents o f many eastern railways in
the Trunk Line association would
constitute a violation of the Sherman
anti trust law and would render all
the railroads concerned liable to se
vere penalties. Mr. Clements ex
plained that the interstate com m erce
commission as a commission is not at
all interested in the Sherman anti
trust law, the execution o f which is
entrusted to the department o f jus
tice, but he expressed his opinion as
a lawyer and cited a recent instance
where the supreme court had so de
"A s a lawyer,” he said, “ I am will-
ling to hazard the opinion that such
an increase in rates as was contem
plated by the eastern railways at
their meeting in New Y ork would be
itt direct violation oi the anti trust
law. When practically all of the
eastern roads, and, for that matter,
all o f the roads in the country, by
a mutual agreement raise rates, it is
to my mind a procedure which brings
them under that clause of the anti
trust law which prevents ‘pooling’ and

not prepared to say. If the increase

would have ample time to decide that
point. I ant convinced, however, that
the railways will give the anti-trust
laws careful consideration before they
consider a general increase in rates.
