LAAYJ' fcA fil Jy Commission Makes De cision That Will Save Shippers $800000 Annually Uniform Spread as Between Classes Established; San Joaquin Ruling Rendered SAN FRANCISCO, March 28.-The railroad commission of California In decision said to be the most volufn Inous ever returned by a rate-making body, has prescribed an entirely new schedule of railroad rates between California cities, which, It is declared tu effect a savins of from JiOO.uon . uimiuu to the shippers of the e annually. Phe decision which was made pub- in . v tuuuy, was returned in t n sn- canea Ban Joaquin Valley rate case, in which shippers of San Franoisco, Los Angeles, Stockton, Fresno and iiaxersiieid sought a reduction of tariffs on th Southern Pacific and Santa Fe railroads, between these cities and San Joaquin" valtay puUus. New rates also are ordered from Los Angeles, San Francisco and Stockton to points between Bakersfleld and Los Angeles. A uniform basis of rates throughout the San Joaquin valley Is established and discriminates which ex--jIh(1 in rates between various towns re removed. The adjustment of rates ift cases where different classes of freight are Involved was explained by the commissioners by a statement, which is in part as follows: rXIFORM SPKEAD. "A uniform spread of rates as be-between classes has been established the rates being adjusted In this re gard on the same principle as that which has been recognized as the correct one all over the country, ex cepting California. It has been the practice of the carriers in this state to maintain less than carload rates which vary little between first and fourth class rates. This condition is a relic of the old rates in effect prior to 1894, before which time, all less than carload shipments moved at one rate. "This condition the commission corrects by providing a uniform spread of rates between the classes of the various distances., When rates of various carriers are compared, the first class rate is used. Thus a representative of a California railroad will compare the first class rate of that road with the first class rate of e road in the middle west for the purpose of showing that the rates in California are not excessively high. When we realize, however, that as the rates have heretofore been in California when the first class rate, under which little traffic moves, Is $1, fourth class rate which carries a heavy movement of traffic, is 85c; while In other localties when the first class rate Is $1, fourth class rate Is from 50 to 60 cents, we realize the unfairness" to the California public In the comparison made." SLIGHT ADVANCES. Slight advances are ordered' by the commission In cases where it wnsrde-cided 4hat, the rates for short discontinued on Page 2, Col. 7) fTFFP n II T WnilNflSHIRlCOWGREGATIONAL GHAPEL DRE U b b I WW I HIUUIIUU IIIU Mil nr I ill lAiirr.rmnq WITH THE BLOOD OF IHinUL liy Uill L LIbuU nATm nrr , .
