Knapp of the Interstate commerce
commission, started today an investi-
gation of the reducU-Ji of wages of
certain roads and every effort will i>e
made to disoover if possible whether
the proposed reduction is due to nat-
ural causes, unfriendly legislation r>r
"misconduct In financial or other op-
erations which may have been in-
dulged in by any of the railroads. .t
is said that the commission already
have come In'o the possession of much
evidence that when made public will
not reflect credit upon the roads who
have been doing the greatest am'.unt

times and hard pressure of legislation,
all of which has made it necessary
for the roads to cur'all operating ex-
pense in cjder to keep out of the
hands of the receivers. From what
can be learned many roads have gone
beyond the bounds of good service in
a matter of retrenchment In order to
Influence legislation more favorably to
their interest, and it is this that the
commission proposes to probe into.
