eral roads in Missouri have increased
local freight rates to a considerable
extent lately, and the matter has been
brought to the attention of the board
of railway and warehouse commission-
ers. The board took the matter In
hand yesterday, and in a circular to
freight traffic men embodied the fol-
lowing order, adopted at a meeting of
the board yesterday afternoon;
Tariff Nos. of —-railway company, in
so far us they slw any lncroa e In freight
rates as existing and In force prior to the Issu-
ance of said — tariffs, are hereby disapproved,
and. taking effect within ten days after the re-
ceipt hereof, the irelght rales as slio n In the
tariffs superseded by the said tariff-, must be
restored ami put la effect.
In the circular the commissioners say
that in 1893 they had under considera-
tion a general reduction of freight
rates in this state, the interests of
producers und consumers seeming to
warrant Mich a reduction. The com-
missioners believe that any increase in
freight rates now is unjust and unwar-
ranted The board also Issued an order
requiring all railroads doing business
ill Kansas City to at once put in track
scales for weighing grain at all ele-
vators on their respective lines.
