Install Lower Rates Quickly. (By the United Press.) Washington, June 2. The nation's railroads now are in a position to" slash freight rates and institute a policy of bargain counter bidding for increased business, officials said here today. Their operating costs depressed $400,000,000 a year thru the wage reduction order ' of the Chicago labor board; plus .$100,000,000 from reductions on coal purchases, the. roads now are face to face with the problem of letting shippers and the general public in on the easier situation, it was maintained. Rates now are 70 per cent above pre-war levels. The matter of rate reduction is wholly up to the roads themselves, it was pointed but at the interstate commerce commission. The roads can fix new and lower rates and put them into effect on thirty days notice thru the simple process of filing copies of the schedules with the commission. New rates can be-pnt into effect on five days notice Instead of 30. provided the roads and the shippers get together, and agree' on reductions. In this case the interstate commerce com mission makes special dispensation and-the rates go into effect almost at once.

Labor Men Say No 12 Per Cent Cut . Is Noticeable in Their Grocery Bills, So Far. Chicago, June 2. Rail workers feel that the 12 per cent wage cu ordered by the United States railroad labor board is unjust at this time, but will accept it .reluctantly. . , Many of the rank and file who were talked with at Chicago's big terminals, expressed the opinion that they have not yet noticed, a 12 per cent cut in their grocery bills. -They said the cut in necessities was hardly noticeable. Workers on the railroads are up against these-problems, hey say, and realize them fully: A strike would not have public approval. The general public is having a hard enough time making ends meet during the industrial depression and it would refuse to back any movement that would make the hard times worse. In event of a , strike, railroaders know ' that thousands of jobless men wftuld take their" posts. ' , Leaders of the powerful rail unions refuse to comment on' the cut or predict what will happen. Policy of labor leaders will be threshed out at a meeting-here next months 1 In the meanwhile, the head of each, rail union department will call a council meeting at which it will be decided whether to accept or reject the cut. A' council vote of rejection in most unions would threw the matter up to the men in a plebiscite.

BrTHAMY- HOSPITAL- ose M PeTensort STATE'S WITNESSES IN CHESTER CHANGE Witnesses called by the state for rebuttal testimony, tossed a bombshell into the camp of the prosecution this morning when they admitted that evidence given by them at' the preliminary hearing of Denzel Chester was not supported by facts. Tom Clarkin and James O'Connor, motorcycle policemen, were the witnesses. At the preliminary hearing they said they had seep Fred Roberts, alleged accomplice East restaurant on. West Twelfth street, Kansas City, Mo., at about 1 o'clock the morning following the murder Of Florence Barton. Florence Barton was slain between the hours of 11 and 12 o'clock on the night of October 2.

The prosecution called Qlarkin and O'Connor to prove that . Roberts was seen there at least an hour after the murder, possibly longer, bufwhen the policemen were called to the stand they admitted they had been mistaken in their testimony;, that in fact, it was about midnight, not 1 A. M.. that they saw Roberts come out of the Twelfth street restaurant. The witnesses explained they had "pulled a box' before going to the Twelfth street restaurant and at the preliminary they were under the lm pression. they had pulled the box at 12:34 o'clock midnight, and then naa nrorpprled to the restaurant. Today they testified they pulled' the box at 11:34 o'clock, or nearly Hair an hour before midnight and that their arrival ate the restaurant was timed before midnicht. not after it.

Arthur Leppert, proprietor of a cigar store on East Eighteenth street, cauea in rebuttal by the state, said that he saw Chester and Roberts in his stora fur a moment at about 11 o'clock on the night of' the murder.
