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 commission. C C. Wright made the opening statement for the railroads. He said In part: "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 tained heretofore. "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 operation." Mr. Wright stated that the present rate of return on property devoted to passen ger service does not amount to S per cent. "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. None of this vast expense brings In ad ditional revenue." French Rush to Exchange Hoarded Gold for Notes PARIS.

He advised signed stories and editorials In newspapers, suggested passage of a law . to compel editors to show their finanolal Interest In pollnlss they ad vocated, commended the Influence ef a one-man 'edited weekly as greater than of a corporation-owned dally newspaper and disapproved "ndependent" publications. Experience in the state department, Mr. Hryan said, had convinced him that pub lio welfare would be benefitted by a law compelling editors to tell what pecuniary Interest they had in governmental policies they advocated, so that the pub lio might know what weight ths editorials deserved. It seems reasonable to suppose," Mr. Bryan said, "that the signing of edi torials and news reports would contribute both accuracy and to the reputation of writers. It Is one of the injustices of the present system that the men who furnish ths literary ability, the editorial writers and newspater correspondents often live in obscurity, while ths corporstlon from which they draw pay reap an unfair profit from their genius."
