HATE LAW IN EFFECT
RAILWAYS BEGIN COMPLI
ANCE WITH STATUTE.
Roads Doing Best to Keep Law, but
Tariffs Still In Press on Date of Op
erationShipper Meets but One
Charge Conference in Washington.
New York, Aug. 28. The new rail
road rate law, which applies to all rail
roads dtflng an interstate business,
went Into effect at midnight last
night. It will be enforced by the In
terstate commerce commission. Ac
cording to the new law the roads were
to have filed with the commission by
midnight all tariffs and charges, show
ing not only the full cost of trans
portation from point to point, but also
what ltemB go to the making up of
this cost. From today on there can
bo no "extras," but the shipper Is ex
pected to he able to obtain In advanco
a final statement of the charge he has
It was stated that In fact not a
single compnny has been able to com
ply fully with the provisions of the
law requiring them to have all their
schedules on file by midnight. Tho
schedule of swltchmg charges was tho
moBt difficult of completion and It Is
said that no road has been able to
finish It in time to file as tho law di
rected. Under the law every company which I
failed to complete its schedules may
be fined, but it Is understood that the
Interstate commerce commission will
give additional time In every case,
when a road has given evidence of
sincere Intent to comply with the law.
To discuss this and other points, a
committee representing the big east
ern railroads will go to Washington
today In order to meet the commis
sion. The conference will be attended
by representatives of the anthraclto
coal roads, who are anxious to obtain
a ruling from the commission on that
section of the law which prohibits a
railroad from carrying from state to
state any article manufactured, mined
or produced by It. except for Itn own
use. This would Include coal.
It is expected that shippers will find
themselves benefited by the provision
which requires the railroads to Includo
all charges of whatsoever nature tn
their quoted rates. Heretofore a
shipper has had to figure for himself
on Icing, refrigerator and elevator
charges, and the dozen or more other
incidentals, dickering with the sep
arate companies which had a hand In
the transportation or care of his ship
ment. Now tho railroad must do that
and tho shipper meets but one chargo
and deals with but one concern. All
the sources of side charges are con
solidated and private cars, sidetracks,
spurs, terminals, olevators are made
subject to tho law.
As a direct consequence of the pro
vision of the rate bill, the Union Pa
cific railway has determined to Install
Its own system of refrigerator cars.
Tho new law also requires the rail
roads to establish a uniform system of
accounting, and to keep their books
open for Inspection at all times by the
expert accountants of tho commission.
The feature Is expected to go far to
ward abolishing the rebate evil of tho
Forces of clerks from all express
companies have for the last few days
been engaged here in the task of re
vising express rates to comply with
the provisions of tho rate bill, but
have been unable to finish their task
in time to file schedules with the In
terstate commerce commission before
tho bill became effective. Tho public
will reap no benefit from the new ar-
rancement. The rates will not be low.

bo Identical with those of every other.
