Tills is the result of a trip of investigation made to the sjas fields by Mayor Crittenden and members of the utilities coniinisBion, tpgciher witii similar officials from Kansas City, Kas.. and St. Joseph. There is now a disposiiion to pass the blame along for the occasional 1ap&:'es ill the matter of an adequate supply of gas in Kansus City. Mo. Various reasons for the shortage were assigned last winter with the burden of the blame on llie Kans-as Xatiiral Gas company, the corporation that controls the gas and pumps It to Kansas City.

The small shippers of Kansas are making sucli a vigorous protest against the use of the uniform bill of lading that, thousli the bill of lading was approved by the Intei-state commerce commission.

'a railroad man .said this morning, though we know that it has been ado |ited. From the vigorous fight being made upon Ir bv the small shipper it is hard to tell wbeu it "nill be put into use hero."

The new law lirovides that if goodu are not jirop- erl> marked to go into the class to wtich they lesltlmately belong, they will go into the next class higher, thus entailinjc additional expense.

If they are i!<»t .so marked they are put in the next c!a <s higher, and tho tariff on them will be say seventy-three and a half cont.< per hundred. The small shippers say tliat the a-lnption of the uniform bill of lading will cause them much exlni trouble aiuf expense and serve no particular purpose.
