there are several good reasons actuat
i:;.T the department in ruling against
the request. The chief one is that the
if anlar army requirement is 10 0 men
and the national guard law is the
fame. This decision was the result
of experience in the world war that
justified the belief that future in

It is hdd that it is impractical to
have companies of f.. men. since,

RAISE IN RATES ON TRUCKING
State Railway Commission Finds the
Old Schedule Low.
The state railway commission has
announced a new schedule of rates
to be charged by the trucking com
panies that come under its jurisdic
tion as common carriers for hire. In
an order issued Friday the terminal
or base rate is increased ik. cents a
hundred, packing requirements are
eliminated and the matter put up
to the truckers themselves, and
changes made in classifactions that
will result in increase in rates.
The matter came befcre the com
mission again as the result of a num
ber of complaints as to the rates and
classification in the original order.
The class rates were said to be in
sufficient for short distances and the
merchandise and single shipment
rates for all distances. The classifica
tion was complained of us unsuitable
to truck transportation and incapa
ble of application by the majority of
truckers on account of its complex
ity. The classification is the same
as that used by the railroads and is
very elaborate containing 10.000
items, and much of its is predicated
upon the condition of shipment as to
packing. The commission admits
that considerable study is necessary
to use it properly.
The commission had made a study
of rates on trucks operating in and
out of Omaha, and finds that actual
experience shows its estimate as to
cost per ton mile was 2 cents too
low. It was found that live stock
rates were not being adhered to. The
commission says thai it does not
blame the small operators for their
inability to apply the classifications
even if they had a copy. The rail
road classification was first suggest
ed by the truckers, and now the
commission finds itself, through ex
perience, in proposing something
Where Increases Come.
The new classification will have
the effect of increasing rates upon
merchandise shipments, but the com
mission says this is fully justified by
the record. Most of these were third
class, and did not compensate the
carriers, and hey had to refuse it.
require time and the keeping of cost
data in order to arrive at a scientific
system, but the past experience of
five months warrants the hope that a
sound foundation -will be found in
due time and that the temporary
rates and rules established are in
dispensable to that end.
j It was shown at the hearing that
some of the carriers subject to the

commission's orders had suffered
seme loss of business by the competi
tion of carriers located beyond t he
zone established, particularly out of
Kearney. As the conditions and cir
cumstances surrounding truck trans
portation are substantially similar in
those counties. Buffalo. Phelps and
Harlan are added to the zone.
Cut Out Packing.
The exceptions to the classifica
tion, under which most of the busi
ness moves, govern the peculiar busi
ness of trucking. The requirements
made by the railroads as to packing
are entirely wiped out. and this will
be left to ti e judgment and wisdrm
of the truckers. One reason why
household goods are largely handled
by the truckers is that they require
no packing, save as in the case of
glassware, pictures and the like.
