V --f 1 i STAND PAT OH RATE, SAYS WILLIS REED . Nebraska Attorney General Says Lines Are Not Entitled to Increase Now. NO MORE THAN IN YEAR 1910 i . .' ttj i (From a Staff Correspondent.) WASHINGTON, June 28. (Spe cial Telegram.) Attorney General Reed of Nebraska, In his argument before the Interstate Commerce com mission opposing the rate Increases In western classification territory, asked for by the railroads In this territory, advanced an entirely new thought with relation to the desired advance. ' Using L. W. WetUlnsTs findings In be' half of the railroad. Mr. Reed said, tak ing the Wettllng report as a starting point:' "In 1910 It waa considered that carriers were receiving an adequate re turn upon such property as they had in-., vestad In and they were denied, aa I un derstand, the right of an advance In rates." , - "The Wettllng exhibit." eald Mr. Reed, "showed that earnings In 1914 by the rallroada seeking the increased rate were tH, 000,000 more than in 1010 and ' that therefore they were not entitled to plead hard times." - ' Cites Wettllng Report. Mr. Reed said that the Wettllng report ehowed. that soma 6,000 miles of track had been built between . 1910 and 1014, which might account for the increased earnings, but he Insisted that the raft- , roads had added the additional mileage at their -own risk and that the amount of money Invested In extension of tracks and betterments waa set off by reason or the difference between the eamlncs of 1910 and 1914. We are driven to the very point that the carriers are entitled to earn a fair return upon their money," said the at torney general, of Nebraska. "I take it that any act or deed or anything that la dene to vary and change the current of traffic, that changes the location, as it were- of the earning commodity, will have a tendency to make one road, per haps.' earn more and another road earn leas." In point he cited the Great Western when It built Into Omaha, "aa a rate cutter in my Judgment." A boat Canipetlan- Lines. He said the territory traversed was amply provided with railroad facilities, but between 1910 aid 1914, Instead of per mitting the Great Weatern to. carry some of the traffic which might otherwise have gone over the Burlington Or the North western, another Una waa constructed and double tracked in order that the par ticular road, might earn more money. "In the atate of Nebraska," aatd Mr. Reed, our people gave, in round figures, SS.0O0.000 in the way of bonds to aid in the construction of tfie rallroada In that stxte, and they gave 600.000 exits of land to assist in the construction of the rail ways, in addition t the twenty-mile tract which is over every odd section, ten miles north and ten miles south, of the Union Paclfio railway. I say It is not fair that after the people have given, those SC,000,OM that you should then fix and use that aa part of the basis' upon which to say you must pay. S or 1 per cent on that money which you have al ready txtn given." Montenegrins Are Mailing On Scutari ROME. June tl.-rma Paris. June tl.? The Montenegro offensive against eVut aii.

It has been the objective of a series of fierce and concentrated attacks en the part of the Teutonic, allies. Their success will have a far-reaching political effect, as the driving out of the Russians from Galicia la counted upon In Berlin to help main tain the atstus quo In the Balkans. The capture of Lemberg was one of tho earliest Important successes of the Russians. Following It. they pushed onr ward rapidly through Galicia. The high water mark of the Invasion found almost all of the province In their hands. They approached within striking distance of Cracow, at the western end of the prov ince, close to the 'German frontier; stormed the heights and paasee of the Carpathian mountains, which separate Oallcia from Hungary, and te the eeat they swept down through the crown lend of Bukowlna to the Roumanian frontier.
