Commission is hearing argument only
upon issues which have arisen since
its decision in July, which denied abso

Buffalo and granted increases west
fijom those points to the Mississippi
All the Commissioners, except Chair
man Harlem, who va> ill, were present.
'.Mr. Clements presided. The . railroad
lines were represented by their princi

and shippers' organizations who oppose
further increases were represented by
counsel, among them Clilt'oul Thome,
who led the opposition to the last ap
Railroad Statement Heard First
To-day's hearing was given over to
a statement for the railroads. The
shippers and their representatives will
be heard later. Daniel E. Willard, pres
ident of the Baltimort and Ohio rail
read, made the opening statement for
"The needi. of the carriers are
pressing and immediate,'' he declared,
"The actual situation has become ex
The railroads are seeking a flat in
crease of five per cent, in freight rates
throughout the territory cast of the
Mississippi and north or the Ohio and
Befers to Foimer Decision
Mr. Willard called atteutiou to the
decision of the Commission in the for
mer case, wherein was stated that the
"net operating income of the railroads
in official classification territory is
smaller than is demanded in the interest
both of t,he general public and the rail
roads," and to the fact tli3t the rail
roads had already taken action to se
cure additional revenues through vari
ous advances and changes of practice.
"The measures of relief proposed by
the Commission will not, in our opin
ion. adequately mee* tiie existing situa
tion, " he added.
"The annual statement of all the
railroads involved in this proceeding
combined for the fis,:al venr ending
June 3.0, 1914, show roundly that the
total operating revenues during that
year were approximately $63,000,000
less than during the previous vear.
while the operating expenses during the
same period were approximately SI!S,-
"The net operating income of these
companies for the same period amount
ed to $-58,900,000, or approximately
$77,700,000 less than was earned lur
ing the previous year, and equal to but
3.98 per cent, upon the property in
vestment, a lower return than was
shown at any time in fifteen years.
"The income applicable to interest
dividends and surplus due the (is a!
year just closed, was $264,900,000 o'
4.02 per cent, upon the total capital
obligations, this return also being low
er than any in fifteen years.
"A war such as that now raging
causes great and immediate disturbance
to industry, commerce and finance. It
causes contraction of credit and great
restrictions, if not the actual stoppage
of international trade as well as serious
disturbance to domestic commerce and
as we have seen it has thrown the se
curity markets of the world first into
panic and then in suspension of opera
Results Produced by War
"In so far as the war and its con
sequences tend to change the conditions
surrounding the enlistment of new capi
tal they tend to change the fundamental
relation between railroad and shipper

in 1913, although operating expenses
(notwithstanding the smaller amount of |

smallest in five years and at the lowest
average rate for ten years.
"In 1914 for the three systems the j
