be in operation before January 1.
Since the government guarantee ex expires
pires expires September 1, the carriers are
expected to bend every effort to put
the advances into effect by that date.

the railroad labor board and to pro provide
vide provide the six per cent net income on
the aggregate value of the railroad
properties as permitted under the
transportation act. The aggregate
value of all of the railroads was

Passenger Increase General
The 20 per cent increase in passen
ger fares, excess baggage charges and
milk transportation rates and the 50
per cent surcharge on Pullman fares
authorized by the commission will be
general the country over. Freight
rates increases will vary according
to territory with 40 per cent in the
east; 25 per cent in the south: 35 per
cent in the west that is, from the
Mississippi river to the Rocky moun
tains and 25 per cent in the Mountain-Pacific
territory from the east
of the Rockies to the Pacific coast,
not including Alaska.
The commission in its 36-page de
cision made no attempt to compute
the amount of increased revenues the
carriers would receive, by reason of
the rate advances. It did say, how
ever, that the increases were justified
in view of the rapidly changing con
ditions as to prices and the necessity
for providing adequate transportation
facilities during and after the period
From figures submitted to the
commission by the carriers when their
aDDlications for the increases were
made it was unofficially estimated
that the apportionment of the ad-
. vances would work out at about
$1,285,300,000 on freight; $233,800,-
000 on passenger: $43,600,000 on
Pullman; $4,500,000 on milk, and $1,-
400,000 excess baggage charges.
V On the same calculations, the east
ern roads would get the greater part
of the total increase, receiving ap
proximately $873,930,000 as compar
ed with $559,483,000 for the western
lines, in eluding those in the moun mountain

man and excess baggage rates were
exactly those asked by the roads.
Freight increases requested were
o9.75 for the eastern roads, 32.03 for
the western roads and 38.91 for the
fcuthern roads, the total estimated
to yield $1,356,000,000. The eastern
roads thus were granted .25 of one
per 'cent more than they sought! the
western roads approximately what
they sought, but the southern roads
received approximately 14 per cent
less than they had requested.
In connection with the increase for
the southern roads the commission
said that the financial condition of
those carriers was more favorable
than that of the lines' in either of the
ether groups. In view of this condi
tion the commission held that they
were better able to meet the demands
ucon them than some ol the other
companies and therefore did not re
ouire as large an increase.
"The increases here authorized,
said the commission, "are intended
to yield the additional one-half of
one per cent of the aggregate value
of the roads to make provisions for
improvements, betterments and
equipment, chargeable to capital ac account.
count. account. The record leaves no doubt as
to the needs of the country for addi
tional transportation facilities. All
carriers participating in the increases
will be expected to make appropria
tions for additional improvements,
betterments or equipment of a char
acter chargeable to capital account
and to make report to us semi-an
nually showing what portion of the
increased revenues resulting from
the increases here authorized has
been devoted to that purpose."
.This one-half of one percent will
approximate $94,000,000. The com
mission said that the carriers had
stated specifically that they needed
immediately at least 100,000 freight
cars, 2000 locomotives and 3000 pas
senger coaches. These are to be paid
for out of this fund and out of mon
eys advanced by the commission and
borrowed by the carriers.
The commission went at some
length into the question of aggre
gate values of the roads as well as
their financial condition and said:
"We conclude that increases as in indicated

This Tucker-Duff case has not, in
our opinion, redounded to the credit
of Marion county. The Tuckers and
Duffs are dopesters and confidence
operators. We have been informed
on good authority that one of them
was implicated in a hotel rojbbery in
San Francisco some years ago. They
were driven out of Leesburg for try trying
ing trying to play a confidence game on the
negroes down there. They were
caught dead to rights here, and should
have all been sent to the penitentiary,
as an example to all such to keep
away from here. There was enough
evidence against them, if it had been
presented in court, to have sent them
up for five to ten years apiece. Those
two innocents, Mr. and Mrs. Tucker,
robbed Helvenston's store, the genteel
Mr. Tucker attracting a clerk's atten
tion, while the immaculate : Mrs.
Tucker" stole a pair of shoes. They
were not even indicted for this, tho'
the evidence was plainer than the
charge on which they were convicted.
Tucker received a very light sentence.
Mrs. Tucker received a much lighter
one. Mrs. Tucker was not able to
pay her very light fine, but she was
not in jail long before "sympathizing
friends" paid her out, expecting her
to go home. Instead of going home,
she went to Jacksonville, and return returned

The state has been made a fool of,

"The return of bodies of America's

reveal many instances of wrong iden identification,
