Application for an increase in tx
press rates in Nebraska, of approxi
mately 38 per cent has been filed with
the Nebraska Railway commission on
behalf of the American, Adams ind
Wells-Fargo Express companies.
The formal filing of the application
followed a conference between repre
sentatives ot express companies and
the commission several months ago,
at which time the former were re
quired to make special compilation of
figures for the information of the
commission, as to earnings and ex
i he companies ask that they be al
lowed to operate under interstate
commerce commission rules and reg
ulations. which they say forty-tw
states have adopted. They say that
the Nebraska rate is non-remunerative
and discriminatory as against inter
state commerce commission rates.

the interstate commerce commission
rates are on a block basis, with tar
iffs fixed by blocks and not by dis-
tance. He says that the basis will not
apply in as small a unit as the state,
where a distance tariff is a just one.
The Nebraska legislature passed
the Mhley act in 1W, which made
general arbitrary reduction of intra
state express rates in Nebraska of 25
