MINTING AND POSTING TARIFFS BAD

As th Mm approach for the new rtn
trill t f Into effect railroad official! arc
wondering- how what they term Ita "lm
possjble provisions" will be met. Aurust
a la not far away and still the railroad
ar making no move to cotnply with the
feature! which compel! them to print a
tariff living the ratee from every point on
IMf line to every other point In the coun
try. Thl! must b done or notice of the
intended aale of a through rate ticket filed
with tha Interstate Commerce commission
for at least thirty day! before the sale,
dorlng which time the passenger must wait.
One of the leading passenger official! In
Omaha, declining to permit tne publication
of hli name. In speaking of the effect on
tha pancenger situation, said:
"Section of the amended Interstate
commerce act provide! thas every common
carrier shall print, file with tha eommls
sion and keep open to public Inspection
schedules of all passenger fares between
different points on Its own route and be
tween points on Its own route and point!
on the route of any other carrier, by rail
road or water, when a through rate and
Joint rate have been established. Bueh
schedule! must be plainly printed In large
type and copies for the use of the public
kept pouted In two public and consplcuoii!
places In every depot or station where pas
sengers are received for transportation. No
change may be made In passenger fares
which have been filed and published by
a common carrier, except after thirty days'
notice to the commission and the public
Fxample of Hardship.
"A literal compliance with thl! section
of the act with regard to the printing and
posting of passenger tariff! Is going to
work a considerable hardship on the travel
ing public without commensurate gain.
For example: John Brown of Lincoln wants
to visit his boyhood home at Skaneatles,
N. T.. comparatively unimportant station
on the New Tork Central, no more or less
Important than 15,000 or 20,000 other rail
road !tatlons to which through ratoa have
not heretofore been printed In passenger
tariffs. Desiring to buy a through ticket
and check hie baggage through to hli des
tination, thus getting rid of the incon
venience of rebuylng from point to point
and rechecklng his baggage, lie goes to
the local agent at Lincoln. The local agent
tt Lincoln write!, telegraphs or telephones j
to his general office and aska it to name ;
a rate to Skaneatles. N. Y. Heretofore It '
l.as been the custom to construct the !
through rate upon a' proper, lawful basis
and authorize' the ticket agent to sell a
through ticktt and Issue a through bag
gage check. After the amended law takes
effect It will be necessary, unless the
railroads are relieved, either to decline to
sell the through ticket or ask John Brown
to remain in Lincoln thirty days while
the rate la being thoroughly digested by tho
Interstate Commerce commission and the
traveling public, ns required by law.
Another Hide of It.
"Again: Suppose John Brown resides at
l small local station, where the demand
for through tickets is Infrequent, and
where in consequence a supply of Interline
tickets and baggage checks is not carried.
Hid that Instead of going to Skaneatles, h
wishes to go to Chicago. Heretofore If he
notified his agent a duy In advance of his
desire to buy a ticket to Chicago the agent
would communicate with the general office
and a ticket and baggage check would be
promptly forwarded with authority to sell
the ticket at the correct through rate. A
literal compliance with the new law will
render this Impossible.
"The requirement of posting two copies
af passenger tariffs in every waiting
room Is also going to be burdensome to
the railroads, and unless I am greatly
mistaken, a most expensive one, as these
tariffs will be taken down by curious
people, would-be students of the railroad
buil reus and village cut-upa, who will
think It smart to steal them.
"In an experience In the passenger bus
iness extending over twenty years I have
never heard a complaint from the public
s to the method of quoting passeng3r
rates. I have heard a good many com
plaints shout the measure of passenger
fares, but none as to the general plan of
preparing and filing tariffs.
"A committee of western railway offi
cials recently has been In Washington con
ferring with the Interstate Commerce com
mission and I am Inclined to think the
commission will grant relief In these mat
ters If It lies In Its power to do so. It la
certainly not the Intent of the law to work
unnecessary hardship on the railroads or
to curtail the privileges now given the
Freight Case Haiti to Be Worse.
The freight situation Is said to be even
worse than the passenger. Attorneys, gent-mi
i..i:"agers and presidents of the roads
have held meetings and have declared their
Intentions of complying with the new law,
but how to do some of the "impossible"
things Is a situation which must be met.
The press reports In The Bee from Wash
ington show the Interstate Commerce com
mission has told Mr. Lomax and Mr. Wood
the Union Parltlc that It wanted to be
fair, but could take no action until after
the. law went Into effect.
The freight situation Is slsed up by one
of the leading freight officials of this city
"Many Imposalble features present them
selves in the new law in its application to
freight conditions. One of the greatest
difficulties la the tariff requirements and
the greatest mischief seems to emanate
t":m a man Vy some considered high In
autbomy In railroad circles. We all know
" you can't learn to play a piano by com
plying alone to the rules of Instruction as
set forth in the book, nor can you run a
railroad' fcy. trying to follow absolutely a
few written laws.
' Akawralty of tho Plaa.
"Tha absurdity of the plan proposed of
posting the tariffs in the station Is very
evident.' It would be an Incoherent mass of
old fubbtih stuck up In the corner of a
depot, which the laymen could not under
stand. -Another Question would be whether or
not a tariff costing M.000 or tlO.000 to pub
lish can bo amended from time to time by
supplemental publications or must we tear
tbe whole house down to fix a ' window
butter. Tbe difficulty of publishing and
posting all rates from everywhere, tha
routaa and routing and all terminal charge
absorbed or charged for at both ends of
tho Una, and how to meet the urgent com
mercial conditions that can't wait thirty
days for a tariff, and how to adjust our
selves to constantly changing atoamship
rate, line very remote, under which two
weeks Is . required to get notices If we
tried, company material rates, and what
there la left under the state rates, nearly
very fluctuation la whtoh will affect in
terstate rates, are things which have to
"Our troubles have but begun.'
