New York Railroad Commissioners
Sty Broken Ralls Increase.
Albany, N. Y April 27. Broken
rails removed from railroad tracks in
this state during January, February
and March of this year were much
more numeioas than in the correspond
ing three months of eithor cf the past
two years, according to a bulletin issued
today by the slate railroad commis
sioner. The bulletin says:
The unusal number of broken rails
reported during the past winter caused
the investigation at this time. The
board finds that during the three
months ending March 31, 1007, thero
was a total of 3,814 broken rails on
principal steam lines of the stato. Dur
ing the corresponding threo months cf
1000 there was a total of 820, and dar
ing the corresponding tthree months of
100S, a total of 1,331. The matter in
detail has been presented to the Amer
ican Hallway association, which li now
holding its convention in Chicago, and
it has requested that the matter be
taken up for discussion and action by
the railroad managers.
It is probable that the convention
will go into the causes of the greatly
Increased number of breakages and that
tho matter will be discussed as to causes
and a conference arranged with rail
manufacturers with a view to discover
ing If the alarming number of break
ages is due to method of manufacture
or metal composition.

tho 5 rate per ton of 2,000 pound

ern Oregon Lumber Manufacturer'
association Tueselay against tho South
