Will Reduce Baggage Rates
Tho Rock Island railroad has
agreed to comply with tho request of
tho state railway commission to re
duco Its rates on excess baggage In
Nebraska. Some of tho officials of the
road denied, at first that It had in
creased such rates. They alleged that
tho charge had been 16 per cent
of the passenger faro ever since 1007.
This amounted, however, to a confes
sion that an Increase had been auto
matically mado when the federal court
allowed tho company to increase lta
passenger faro from 2 cents to 3
cents a mile. When tho 2-cent faro
law went into effect in Nebraska the
railroads were charging fixed rates
ffor excess baggage. Then they
changed to a percentage basis of tho
passenger fare. The Rock Island
since that time has been charging
16 per cent of tho passenger fare.
This rate was not changed when tho
federal court recently permitted the
Rock Island to increase its passenger
fare in Nebraska, and tho percentage
basis of charging for excess baggage
consequently caused nn Increase.
