The reduction of 40 cents a ton ln tho
freight rates on prepared sizes of coal
from tho Schuylkill, Lehigh and Wyo
ming districts to Philadelphia, which
was ordered recently by the Pennsylvania
Public Scrvlco Commission, Is to be con
tested In tho Dauphin County courts. The
Pennsylvania Itallrc-ad and the Philadel
phia and Reading Railway Companies,
together with tho smaller coal-hauling
companies, have decided to make a Joint
appeal directly to tho courts Instead of
asking the Commission for a rehearing
of the case.
It was announced from tho ofIlce3 of
tho Pennsylvania Railroad Company to
day that tho appeal would bo made to
morrow or Thursday. In tho statement,
announcing tho Intention of the railroads
to fight the case. It was said that tho re
duction, If allowed to stand, would have
diminished Mi? net revenue ot tho Penn
sylvania by approximately $1,600,000 a
year, the net revenuo of tho Reading
Iby approximately $2,000,000, and thnt of
tho other companies by several hundred
thousand dollars.
"The Importance to tho State of Penn
sylvania and to tho city of Philadelphia
of adequately conserving tho revenues of
the carriers," tho statement concludes,
"demands that Immediate action shall be
taken to protect their revenues from such
widespread destruction as Is Involved
under this order of tho Pennsylvania Pub
lic Service Commission."
William N. Trlnkle, counsel for the
Commission, will probably opposo tho
contention of tho railroads Instead of tho
attorneys who originally argued the con
sumers' side of tho case, ward w. I'ler
son and Harold S. Shertz. Tho latter at
torneys, however, will co-opernto with tho
Commission in fighting the railroads' ap
peal. The railroad companies have obtained
copies of tho record of tho hearings, cov
ering nearly two years, nnd have been
working on tho appeals for some time,
although no notice of their Intentions
first served on December 28, but It
had been mado public today.
Tho order of tho commission was
later was discovered that, owing to a
clerical error, the date when the new
rates were to become effective was Jan
uary 12 Instead of IS, as Intended. A
new order correcting this was served Jan
uary 5.
Had the railroads decided to ask the
commission for a rehearing Instead of
appealing to the courts, January 23 would
have been the final date for this action,
as IS days Is allowed to appeal to the
commission from Its order.
According to tho order, tho rates are
to become effective January 18. From this
date, a period of SO days Is allowed tho
railroads to put the order into effect pro
vided they do not appeal.
At ,the expiration of this time, pro
vided' no appeal has been made, they are
subject to a penalty of ISO a day for tho
violation of the commission's order.
Further, the officers of the companies
who aro responsible for tho failure to
carry out tho OTder shall bo guilty of a
misdemeanor and subject upon con
viction to a J00 ftnoor Imprisonment from
1 to 12 months, and to a fine of ftOOO or
Imprisonment from 3 to 18 months for
each subsequent offense.

Great Britain Determined to
Test Transfer of Registry
in Ship Bought From
WASHINGTON, Jan. 12,-The stontn
shlp Dacla, of tho Hamburg-American
Line, which was sold to Edward N.
llrettung, of Marquette, Mich., and placed
In American registery undor tho newly
enacted emcrgcncyroglstry law, will bo
seized on tho high seas and taken before
n British prize court. Definite Informa
tion to this effect has reached Washing
ton. The seizure of tho Dacla will bring to
an Issue one of tho most Important ques
tions that has been raised with respect to
neutral shipping since tho outbreak of
tho war in Europe. It will bo handled
as a test case, and upon Its ultlmato
outcomo will dopend tho decision whether
tho fleet of German merchant vessels
now tied up at New York and other
American ports can bo Bold to American
owners, transferred to the American flag
and then used In trade with Europe over
tho routes to Germany they havo trav
ersed In tho past.
Tho Dacla is now flying tho American
flag. Sho Is nt Galveston loading cot
ton. Sho Is scheduled to sail from Gal
veston next Friday. It Is understood
that her destination will bo Bremen. In
formation reaching Washington tonight
is to tho effect that the steamship will
not reach Bremen, but will be halted at
sea, taken Into n British port, and
brought beforo a British prize court. It
Is tho Intention of tho British Govern
ment to leave tho settlement of tho lssuo
primarily to tho decision of Its prize
Should tho prlzo court rule that tho
Dacla was transferred In an absolutely
bona fide way to tho American flag, and
that tho transfer was noT ln violation
of tho Declaration of London, nnd per
mits tho Dncia to proceed to Bremen,
It li altogether probable that the owners
of the Dacla and Its cargo will bo en
titled to reparation and damages from
tho British Government for unwarranted
selzuro nnd detention. Should tho prize
court hold the ship other and moro dif
ficult problems may arise.
Tho British Ambassador ln lnformnl
conversations with American officials re
garding tho new American registry law
has repeatedly Intimated that his Gov
ernment would test tho bona fldo char
acter of any German transfer to Amer
ican registry and regard It as Invalid
If tho steamer transferred continued on
the same trado route as before, or If it
sailed to its original port.
It Is believed hero that tho new own
ers of tho vessel aro prepared for event
ualities, and will bo ready to contest tho
validity of tho seizure.
LONDON, Jan. 12. Judging from Amer
ican dispatches to the newspapers hero,
tho British attitude concerning tho Dacla
Is not understood In tho United States.
Tho Morning Post says tho British Gov
ernment Is still Investigating tho trans
fer, and points to the great danger to
Britain's welfare through tho transfer of
German ships to tho American flag, wind
ing up with the suggestion that such
speedy Bhlps as tho Vaterland could
through transfer of registry become com
merce destroyers.
Tho position taken by the British Gov
ernment Is that If the Dacla or any
other German ship transferred to Amer
ican registry, engages In trado with Ger
many, sho will be seized, something al
ready known to tho Washington Govern
ment. President Wilson's statement In his
Indianapolis speech, blaming tho high
freight rates on a lack of tonnage, Is
considered faulty here. General condi
tions, more particularly high Insurance
costs, are considered the real reason of
tho advanced charges.

Policyholder Seeks to Change Pro
visions of Agreement.
William Spencer filed a bill In equity
In Court of Common Pleas, No. 3, today,
asking that the Metropolitan Insurance
Company bo compelled to allow him to
change the beneficiary ln five policies,
which he holds In the company for an
aggregate of $15,000 Insurance. '
Three of the policies are for endow
ment Inauranoe. When ho contracted to
tako the five policies, Spencer named his
wife, Kate, as the beneficiary.
On April 12, 1912, however, he and his
wife had a settlement regarding her
dower, and Mrs. Spencer assigned all her
interest in the policies to their son, Wil
liam Spencer, Jr., then 6 years old.
His Intention, Spencer explains, is to
have the Insurance money paid to his
child In event of his death before the
policies expire.

Moore's Speech in House,
Declaring Railroads Have
Agreement With Govern
ment, Amazes Capital.

and Philadelphia business men generally
today followed tho statement of Repre
sentative J. Hampton Moore, of this city,
to the effect thnt certain railroads aro
In leaguo with tho United States Gov
ernment ln nn effort to hinder tho com
merce of tho port of Philadelphia Official
circles ln Washington received tho state
ment with astonishment and It was dis
cussed to the exclusion of almost every
thing elso today.
Representative Moore, speaking beforo
tho House on tho rivers and narbors bill
yesterday, declared that delay on tho
part of the Government engineers to
dredge the Delawaro River to n depth of
35 feet to Allegheny nvenuo might result
In tho cancelation by tho Navy of tho
contract to deliver coal from Philadelphia.
The Government has n contract to tako
coal from tho Pennsylvania contractors.
Tho coal Is delivered from piers In the
upper Delaware. Because of the delay of
the Government engineers In complying
with tho law, Representative Moore says
a collier carrying coal from that point
recently went nshore. Tho contractors
have now been notified that tho coat must
henceforth bo delivered from Norfolk.
Sir. Mooro says he Is prepared to re
veal a startling condition nnd to show
the public, among other things, why tho
Delawaro River nlwnys gets a smalt ap
propriation In comparison with other pro
jects. His speech yesterday was prepara
tory to tho development of IiIb Intention
to dlscloso tho alleged treaty, ho said.
"Recent tests of bituminous cont from
Pennsylvania havo proven Its accepta
bility to tho United States Navy," eald
Mr. Moore, "and contracts for delivery
nt Philadelphia Indicate that tho navy
can do business at the port ot Philadel
phia with profit to the Government, but
questions of navigation nave arisen whloh
threaten to do the port ah injustice and
place tho Government at a possible loss,
"1 do not Intend at this time to fur
ther discuss tho question of coat for
steaming purposes, or tho proficiency of
naval captains, or pilots to safely navi
gate tho river, but I do desire 10 draw
attention to the fact that ln the matter
of certain coal shipments recently made
the port ot Philadelphia has suffered ln
tho Interest of other ports having a
channel depth of 35 feet.
"Testimony recently given before ths
Commltteo on Naval Affairs presents art
unusual condition with regard to the mat
ter of coal. In ordor to circumvent what
was believed to be a combination to con
trol tho price of coal delivered at Nor
folk, tho Secretary of tho NaVy discov
ered a now source of coal supply In
Pennsylvania. Ono of tho great collier
of tho navy came up to the port of
Philadelphia and departed with a load of
this coal. Now we hear that channel
depths nro again under discussion in
tho departments, and that coal that
should havo been shipped from Phila
delphia may bo shipped to other ports
at an Increased cxpensa to the Government."
