RATE HEARING ON
Attorney Wright Sayi it Will Be
Proved Passenger Earnings
Are Steadily Decreasing.
STATISTICIAN FIRST WITNESS
CHICAGO, July 6. The western
passenger rate hearing, in wnicn
forty-eix western railroads hope to
prove that present rates, said to be
unremunerative, should he advanced,
began here today before Examiner
Thurtell of the Interstate Commerce
C C. Wright made the opening
statement for the railroads. He said
"The carriers expect to show that the
net operating income of the roads in
volved during the last seven years has
been materially leas than it was for the
seven years Immediately prlr to that
period. It will be shown that this Is true
notwithstanding the fact that there has
been an increase In the volume of busi
ness and an Increase In the property In
vestment" This, of course, results in a
higher operating ratio and naturally a
lesser rate of return .than has been main
"Comparisons also will be given show
ing present conditions as against those of
1910. Explanation of the Increase In ex
pense also will be made. It will be
shown that It Is largely due to Increases
In the cost of labor and to taxes and
that the economies which have been ef
fected by the carrier and the Increased
volume of business have not been suf
ficient to meet the Increased cost of
Mr. Wright stated that the present rate
of return on property devoted to passen
ger service does not amount to S per
"It W believed," Mr. Wright continued,
that It Is Impracticable to maintain state
and interstate rates upon any substan
tially different basis."
Wettllng; First Witness.
L. F. Wettllng, statistician for the car
riers, took the stand and presented a
voluminous exhibit of comparative fig
ures from 1901 to 191.
"The average ratio of return on, cost
of road and equipment In the first seven
years of this period was 5.43 per cent,
said the witness. "In the second seven
years It dropped to 4.74, while the re
turns for 1914 were only 4.24 per cent,
thus showing a general tendenoy of rail
road profits to decline."
Mr. Wettllng testified that expendi
tures for additions and betterment for
the roads in 1907-14 reached 1966,818,406, of
which S390,435,6$2 was for equipment.
"Between 1901 and 1907." he continued,
"unproductive expenditures for per
manent Improvements, such ss passenger
stations, viaducts, grade crossings, track
elevation and the like, were 119,662.442.
In 1907-14 this sum jumped to 179,672,092.

TWO THOUSAND CASUALTIES
LAREDO, Tex., July 6. Six hun
dred Carranza troops, It is reported,
were killed In an all day battle in
a fruitless attempt to capture Pa re
don, a Villa stronghold about thirty
miles northwest of Moffterey. Eigh
teen thousand men are said to have
been engaged In the battle, with, to
tal casualties on both aides of 2,000.
Carranza reinforcements renewed
the attack today.
About 8,000 Carrania troops under Gen
eral Jacinto B. Arevino advanced yes
terday morning alone the railroad from
VUla Garcia, a village about midway be
tween Monterey and Paredon.' The ad
vance followed a Sunday truce, during
which both sides burled dead, who, dur
ing the two weeks Incessant fighting
about Villa Garcia hadj fallen so thlcK
as to menace health. i
The Carranza officers estimated that
Villa had nearly 10,000 men concentrated
near Paredon under Generals Urbana
and Chao, two of his best known gen-)
erala. Their purpose was to halt a Car-
ranxe advance on Torreon, about 2no
miles west of Monterey.

"I left Petrograd about the middle of

Russian reverses, there was no Indication

They are simply awaiting ammunition
