A complied statement of ths operations of these three classes gives ths following results:
Aa wa hava made comparisons with
other States, we make three lines of comparisons In regard to

case they had paid, taxes on ' ths Wisconsin basis, Instead ot
what were charged in this State, in tha

waa only an addition to that loss.

Jobbers of buggies and light vebtclea In

upon the action of the Western and Central
Classification bureaus In tbs matter of ratea
upon car lots between tbe. east and the
west About a year ago members of ths
Central bureau proposed a change in the
classification which would provide a mini
mum load for cars of certain dimensions,
the cars, whether carrying that weight or
not, to cost the shipper the aame amount
for transportation, and care ot larger di
mension carrying tba aame weight to be
charged at a higher rats than care ot
smaller size. This rule would have worked
a hardship upon Jobbers of buggies and
similar goods, as no car will approximate
tbe minimum woigbt when loaded as full
as possible with such goods. The result
would have been a practical Increase of
from 10 to 20 per cent in freight ratea be
tween tha factoriea and tha Missouri river.
At a meeting of tho Classification bureau
ot the Central district laat winter tha new
classification was adopted, but Immediately
there were so many protests from shippers
that ths roads to ths agreement decided to
auapend the operation of tbe new rule until
July 1. At the meeting of the Western
Classification bureau at New Orleans shortly
after tbs meeting of ths Central bureau
tbe aame plan received the aupport ot a
majority ot tbe membere of the association,
but because of tbe action of tbe Central
bursas In auspendlng the operation until
July 1 the rule waa not formally adopted.
Word baa been received In Omaha that
