NEW YOUK , M y 23. Raproionta-
ttvos of the dry goods trade In this
and other cities In the east and west
appeared to > day before the railroad
commlislon sitting hero , to support
the claims made In tholr petition to
the commission , In which it is stated
that the existing classification ot do
mestic dry goods In the woitorn bound
trallio of the trunk lines is unjust , in
jurious to bntluosB , and should bo
In support of these charges It was
urged that the clastof dry goodsagalnat
which the present classification boars
most heavily are mainly cotton goods ,
of coarser and cheaper grade , and It Is
especially for that class of merchandise
that rcclassltioatlon was asked. The
rate charged for transportation , It was.
urged , was ont of proportion to the
cost of transportation , and ont of
proportion to the value of the goodi
aimed. , It was also stated these mat
ters were iirst brought to the attention
of the ozcontlvo committee of the trunk
lines at the rnggestlon of Vice-Presi
dent Bknohard , of the Erlo railroad ,
and a petition was presented to Fink
signed by nearly all representatives of
Inrgo cotton mills of Maine , Now
Hampshire , Massachusetts , Con
necticut , Rhode Island , Now
York and Pennsylvania , and
nearly all representatives of dry
goods merchants of Now York ,
Boston , Philadelphia , Baltimore ,
Chicago , St. Louis nnd other promi
nent cities. In this petition it was
represented that the classification of
thla kind of merchandise was raised
during the war because the goods became -
came so valuable as to warrant It ;
that sheetings worth from $400 to
$500 i dnrlng the war now Bell for
from f $45 to ( CO par bale ; that these
goods f , as first class , are now subject
I to higher relative charge on tholr
| value than any other textile fabric ,
and are out of all proportion to the
staples fi of the grocery trade. The
executive committee of the trunk
lines , it waa contended , mot this pe
tition with absolute refusal. Upon
what principles the companies have
established tholr classification sohcd-
nlo the dry guoda representatives
were nnablo to understand.
Poor Commissioner Albert Fink re
plied that 1' . is necessary to charge
higher rates ou certain articles in or
der that grain and other food products
can bo carried at a rate enabling the
firmora to ship to the east and to
Knropo. This discrimination Is for
t u benefit of trade In general and the
dry goods trad ? shares in the benefits.
Individual oonauraora of domestic dry
goeds would benefit so little by a re
duction of froleht rates on that clans
of goods that the difference In cost
would bo Inappreciable , while the re
duction would not benefit the trade
by causing nn increased demand for
tholr goods. Silks and the higher
class of dry goods bear such relative
small proportion in the bulk and
weight to the amount of dry goods o !
the lower classes shipped , that it would
bo necessary to charge very high rates
on them to make up f jr the redaction
on the latter. The discrimination
inuet exist , ho argued , between eov-
nrul classes of articles , and the rates
on the classes cannot ba established on
the basis of cost of service , After
further discussion of the subject tha
commission adjourned to Juno 13th.
