of the Public Service Commission to

challenged to-day at a hearing in the
matter of the complaint of the Penn

road Company and the Pennsylvania
Company. The old Railroad Commis
sion decided that the rate of BV6
cents for the transportation of crude
petroleum oil from Walford to Titus
ville, was excessive and recommended
a 7% cent rate. The carriage did not
promptly comply with this recommen
dation and the complainant seeks
reparation because an 8% cent rate
was charged on shipments made from
May 31 to October 6 of last year. The
Railroad Companies contend, through
their attorney, L. E. Hinkle, that the
Public Service Commission is without
jurisdiction, notwithstanding the pro
vision in the act of its creation which
declares that it may dispose of the

This is a fact which Is coming home
to more Washington party people

there Is a chance for the election of a

been practically abandoned. The pur
pose now Is to accomplish the defeat of

Estimate Place? the Total Dam
ages at Two Million
Dollars To Date
With another week of hard work to
complete repairs, Jhe Pennsylvania
Railroad officials yesterday announced
that the total damages from the re
cent blizzard would reach $2,000,000.
This sum Includes the actual de
struction of the company's property;
the cost of temporary repairs; loss of
revenue during the twenty-four-hour
period while traffic was wholly sus
pended in northern New Jersey and j
during the much longer period when ;
only partial service was possible; the
cost of clearing the tracks of snow
and wreckage, and the extraordinary
expenses of operating the lines while
the tracks were partly blocked, and
train dispatching and signaling appa
ratus were out of commission. The
property damage alone is placed at an
amount In excess of $500,000.
The Pennsylvania Railroad Com
pany, alone, had 480 poles and 3,000
miles of wire down. Besides, 2,000
crossarms were torn from railroad
poles that had been left standing.
In clearing the tracks of snow and
wreckage, the official record shows,
the company used a 'force of 7,300
men for three days. Of this number
5,000 were extra laborers and the re
maining 2,300 were regular employes,
recruited from many points on the
Eastern lines. To feed this army 60,-
000 men were sent out along the line
