The officials believe that Japan is using every effort to live up to her agreement not to issue passports to laborers, but there is little doubt that the regulations are continually evaded. It is believed that a careful watch on the immigrants after they have reached this country soon will lead to a solution of the problem.

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 to act. 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. Oyster Bay, N.

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 the matter. 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.

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 cided. "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 illegal combinations. “ W hether or not there is any neces sity now for an increase of rates, I am not prepared to say. If the increase should com e, the com m issioners 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. “ A similar case came up in Georgia som e time ago during some lumber hearings Federal Judge Speer de ctded that the railroads had form ed an illegal com bination in increasing the rates, and the supreme court a f firmed the decision.” F IR E O N S T R IK E B R E A K E R S .
