(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, July 21. (Special Tele
gram.) Yellow pine schedules from
Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas and Missouri
to points reached by lines of the Burlington
nd Union Pacific companies In western
Nebraska were found unreasonable today
by an opinion handed down by the Inter
state Commerce commission and the roads
interested were ordered to put Into effect
the new rates on October 1, said rate to
last for a period of two years.
In the Judgment of the commission the
i ate to Colorado common points should
be observed as the maximum to points in
western Nebraska east ot the. Colorado
line, while the Cheyenne rate should be
observed as the maximum to points on
line of the Union Pacific from Raltons to
Smeed, Neb., inclusive.
Order made today fixes the rates on
yellow pine from southern territory to
points on line of the Union Paciflo as
follows: From Josselyn to Barton. Neb.,
Increase 37 cents per 109 pounds; to points
from Raltons to Smeed, Neb Increase
40 cents per 100 pounds; to points on line
of Burlington from Smlthfleld to Venango,
Neb.,. Increase and from Oxford Junction
to Sanborn, Neb., inclusive, 37 cents per
Refund to Be Decided.
The question of reparation will be de
cided later. For some years prior to De
cember 10, 1908, the defendant carriers had

and Its products from the producing terri
tory in Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas and
Missouri to points in Nebfaska. Kansas,
Wyoming and Colorado. To large portions
of this territory these Joint rates were
made up ot the combination- through Lin-
ooln and Omaha, but to points In Kansas,
Colorado, Wyoming and the western part
of Nebraska the rates were lower than
this combination. At various times be
tween December 10, 1908, - and February 7,
1909, Inclusive, the Chicago, Burlington &
Qulncy Railroad company, the Union Pa
oiflo Railroad company and the St. Joseph
ft Grand Island Railroad company with
drew their concurrences ' In the tariffs
carrying Joint rates, leaving the Omaha
and Lincoln combination In effect on

Raised Rates to Equalise.
Proceedings were instituted on April 28,
1999, for the purpose of compelling the
restoration of Joint rate which the com
plainants formerly' enjoyed. The defend
ants thereupon re-established the Joint
rates previously. In effect to Kansas, Colo
rado and Wyoming points, narrowing
thereby the controversy between various
producing points In Nebraska. Prior to
June 1, 1908, rates on yellow pine lumber
from southern points to Lincoln and Omaha
were 34 and 23 cents, respectively. After
the decision in the Lincoln Commercial
club's case the committee ordered that the
rate to Lincoln should not exceed that
applying to Omaha and the rates to both
cities were raised to 26 eents. Subsequently
the Des Moines ease came, on and the com
mittee held that the, rate to Des Moines
shculd not exceed rates to Lincoln and
Omaha. In complying with this order the
carriers Increased Lincoln and Omaha rates,
at the same time reducing the Des Moines1
rate, which brought suit. to an issue.

UNCLE SAM THINKS WOMEN
LESS OBEDIENT THAN MEN
Are Replacing; Girl Stenoa-raphers
with Others ot Male Pens
loa All Over.
WASHINGTON. July 21.-Women steno
graphers apparently no longer are wanted
In the government service. This announce
ment was made today at the civil service
commission In an effort to put a stop to
a steadily Increasing flood of letters from
women throughout the country who seek
Information about an examination for
stenographers and typists, the demand for
whom the civil service commission has been
unable to meet. Prectlcally all the various
departments of the government are seeking
to replace women stenograhphers with men,
on the ground that the latter are more
amenable to discipline, are more easily
transferred to places where their services
are needed and can more readily be drafted
Into other kinds ot work.
