the association, to-day, for the purpose of
considering the subject of World’s fair ex

The Camden and Atlantic Railroad Com
pany has hit upon a novel scheme for refusing
passes over the road. When an applicant for
dead-head privileges enters the office, instead
of receiving the desired pass, he is gravely
handed a card on which are printed the follow
ing Biblical quotations:
“Thou shalt not pass.”—Numbers 20:18.
“Suffer not a man to pass.”—Judges 3:28.
“The wicked shall no more pass.”—Nahum
“None shall ever pass.”—Isaiah 34:10.
“This generation shall not pass.”—Mark 13:
“Thoughy they roar, yet can they not pass.”—
“So he paid the fare and went.”—Jonah 1:3.
There was a well attended meeting of rail
way presidents held in Chicago, Tuesday, to
consider what was to be done in reference to
freight rates in Nebraska in connection with
the maximum freight bill which soon goes in
effect. The president of nearly every road in
that state was present and the whole matter
was gone over carefully. All thought of re
sisting the application of these rates was
abandoned and the result of the meeting was
the instruction to the freight agents to go
ahead and prepare a new freight schedule
based on the requirements of the Nebraska
law. The preparation of that schedule em
braces a good many difficulties, and the
freight agents who took up the problem that
afternoon in the general meeting have before
them a complicated task. The law provides
for a definite mileage rate, and one of the
troublesome complications that follows the
putting of such law into execution is the diffi
culty of equalizing the rates on the roads run
ning to the same point, but reaching it over
varying mileage. The question arises as to
whether or not the longer line will put in the
rate based on the mileage schedule provided
by law, and thus have a higher rate than the
shorter line, or whether it will ignore that
schedule and meet the rate of its more direct
competitor. That question was taken up by
the presidents and was decided in various
ways to fit the various cases. To some points
the lines will put in rat£s even lower than the
law provides so as to meet the competition of
the shorter lines, while in others competitive
business will be sacrificed and no rates lower
than those made absolutely necessary by the
law will be put in force.
