Says Wrote Note
By Dumba's Order
WASHINGTON, Dec. l.-Baron Krlch
Zwledinek, . charge of the Auatro-IIun-garlan
embassy, today called upon Secre
tary Lansing to explain a letter he. wrote
in August, 1814. In which he suggested
that passports ' be bought for Austrian
reservists. The State department haa a
photograph copy of the letter.
. The charge was understood to have In
formed Secretary Lansing that at the
time the letter was written he was a
subordinate in the embassy.
Dr. Constantln T. Dumba, the. ambas
sador, who haa been recalled, was then
In charge, and it was said that Baron
Zwledinek contended that he was actmg
not upon his own initiative, but under
the Instructions of the ambassador.
Baron Zwledinek remained wtth the
secretary nearly an hour. It was believed
that the note which the United States
has dispatched to I Austria-Hungary on
the sinking of the Italian liner, Ancona,
was also a aubject mentioned.
It waa stated authoritatively today that
Secretary Lansing has not yet reached a
decision as to Alexander Von Nuber, the
Austro-Hungarian consul general In New
Tork, whose case la under consideration.
What effect the baron's explanation
today might have upon the secretary's
case was not disclosed. Baron Zwledinek
declined to discuss the subject

the cellar he goes and drags up a long
eoil of garden hose. Next ha geta a meg
phone that had done duty In numerous

to one end of the hose.
Next he digs up a big funnel such as
Is used In filling automobile tanks. He
fastens this to the other end of the hose.
Then be slips over to the window of the
patient's room snd softly Inserts the mag
aphone end. Back he files and runs tha
other end of the hose through a window
of his own house.
Breathless with the exertion of so much
Inventing, he places LUit's ninety-ninth
Hungarian raphsody or something on the
machine and starts It, holding the funnel
carefully close to the needle.
The alck man next door, awakening
from a dose, hears strains of music.
Whence come theyT He knows not. He
calls his wife. And then after some
search the sweet deception Is discovered.

WESTERN RAIL RATE
Interstate'Commerce Board Author
ises General Increases in
SOME ASKED HOT ALLOWED
WASHINGTON, Dee. 11. General
increases in passenger fares on west
ern railroads were authorised today
by the Interstate Commerce commis
sion. Some ot the increases for
which the roads asked were disap
proved, but such aa , were allowed
will result in an Increase in revenue.
Proposed Increase In Illinois, Wis-'
con sin, the Michigan upper . penin
sula, MtHDesota.Jowa. Nebraska,
Mteeawi; north o tha Mlaaourl river,
and in Kansas' on and north ot the
main Una ot the Union Pacific from
Kansas City to the Colorado state
line were disapproved, but the com
mission bld that an interestate basis
of 2.4 cents per mile was Justified.
In Missouri south of the Missouri river
and In Kansas south of the main line of
the Union Paclflo proposed increase
were disapproved, but an Interstate basis
of 2. cents per mile were allowed.
Dakota Rate Approved.
Proposed Increases from points within
which new rates were authorized to points
on tha main lines In California. Arlsona,
Utah, Nevada, Colorado, Wyoming, New
Mexico, Akansas, Oklahoma and Texas
were pronounced unreasonable where the
fare would be higher than that con -
structed on the rate fabric existing to the
east. A basing rate of 2V& cents a mllo
in North and South Dakota and 3 ccnU
in the states south and west was an-
Increases on mileage tickets to make
them 24 cents a mile north of the Mis
souri river In Missouri and on and north
of the Union Pacific main Una In Kansas
were approved. A mileage ticket rate of
2V cents a mile south of tha same divid
ing lines waa pronounced Justified.
Increases In fare to the east of Mich
igan, Illinois, Iowa. Minnesota, Wiscon
sin, Nebraska. Missouri and jvannas,
based on rates newly authorized In that
territory, were pronounced reasonable.
Folate of Halloa.
The commission held that the evidence
in the case In which nearly fifty roads
were Involved and which was part of
the . whole western advance rate case,
showed substantially the following:
That since 190o the railroads have made
substantial improvements in panaengt-r
service for convenience and safety at
That passenger service conditions do
not permit ot economies possible In the
freight service, and that the increased
costs not offset by those economies which
exist are entitled to consideration.
That passenger service in western ter
ritory is less profitable than freight serv
ice and that the existing rates are lower
than those In the south, east and west,
but that there la some justification for
The derision repeats the holdings of the
recent advance freight rates cases that
the railroads have felt the Increased cost
of living, an d recites that the public has
the right to expect adequate, comfortable
and safe service.
No Kxeaso for Waste.
-The ftommlaslnn aalif !
I .,., h . ,.,. ,K
carrlers should be allowed, under reason-
able fares, to earn a reasonable return
upon tha property used In that service.
Neither competition nor the unreasonable
demands of tha public, however, must be
made the excuse for waste and extrava
gance In tha passenger service."
To avoid confusion of practice the com
mission dismissed all the Increanes the
railroads prixposed and ordered the filing
of new tariffs, embodying such incresses
as were allowed to become effective.
