Railroads Ass. Delay.
Railroad attorneys appeared before the
railway commission today and asked that
the hearing of the proposed classification
of freight rates be postponed until after
the federal court has heard and paesed on
the evidence in the cases now on file thre.
It was argued by the attorneys that the
rates in effect in 1P07 and filed with the
commission were not compensatory and
that the rates proposed by the commission
are not compensatory, and therefore, the
commission shoLld rot take any evidence
until this is passed upon by the court. The
attorneys said It would take about three
weeks to get all of their testimony Intro
duced and they would be willing to go on
with the case before tho commission with
out waiting for the other case to go to
the higher court.

Reports aad Accounts.
The Interstate Commerce Commission has
forwarded to the State Railway Commission
its rule governing the reports to be made
by the various common carrier to the
commissions. Several Important changes
are ordered from the present reports. The
distinction between additions and better
ments has been eliminated.
It Is no longer permissible to charge
such expenditures to income, profit and
loss, or special funds In such a manner as
to exclude any expenditure for additions
and betterments from the property ac
counts in the balance sheet.
The present classification provides that
operating expenses should be charged only
In case the abandoned property (other than
land equipment) Is replaced; and the
amount to be charged Is now based upon
the cost of replacing In kind the aban
doned property instead of the original cost
as provided In the circular.
Where property Is abandoned and new
road built, the value of the property thus
abandoned must be deducted from the ex
penditure. A single account, "Equipment." has been
substituted for the various accounts for
