COST OF SEBTICE CUTS A FIGVBE, But a Difference In Favor of Oar i.bad Lots that Kills Conpotitlon Between Enrico and Smiill Dealers Is Unlawful- News from tiio Capital. Washington. March 17 -The interstate com mission decided the cases brought against tlie Trunk Lines, F. B. Tluirber and others by Thomas L, Green and Francis H. Leggett & Co. o� New York, known as the "car-load cases," in favor of the complainants. Complaint was made of too great differences in rates charged ou oar-load and less tlian car-load quantities. The cases excited widespread interest, and more than four thousand persons, firms and corporations doing business in various sections of the country filed memorials with the commission expressing their views for or against the relief sought for by the complainants. The point decided are briefly stated as follows: Classification of freight for transportation purposes is in terms recognized b^ the act to regulate commerce, and u therefore lawful. It is also a valuable convenience both to the shippers and carrriers. A classification of freight designating different classes for car load quantities and for less than car load quantities lor transportation at a lower rate in oar loads than in less tb^n car loads, is not in contravention of the act to regulate commerce. The circumstances and' conditions of the transportation in re sppct to the work done by the carrier' and the revenue earned are dissimilar,! and may justify a reasonable difference' in rates. The public interests are subserved by car load classifications of property tuat on account of. the volume transported to reach markets or supply; the demands of trade throughout the! country legitimately or usually mdves^ in such quaniities. Carriers are not at; liberty to classify property as a basis of transpurlation rutes and impose charges for its carriage, with exclusive regard to their own interests, but they must respond to the interests of those who may have reason to employ thi-ir services and conform their charges to the rules of relhtivB equity and justice which the act prescribes. Cost of service is an important element in fixing tvansportation charges and entitled to fair consideration, but it is not alone controlling nor supplied by carriers, and the value of the service to the property carried is an essential factor to be recognized in coun.^ction with other considerations. The public interests are not to be subui'dinated to those of carriers, and require pr per regard for the value of the service in the apportionment of nil charges upon traffic. A difference in rates upon carloads and leas than carloads of the same merchandise between the same points of carriage ao Avide as to be de tructive to competition between large and small dealers, especially upon articles of general and necessary use, and which, under existing conditions of trade, furnish fL large volume of business to carriers, is unjust, and violat. s tho provisions and principles of the act. A difference in rates for a solid carload of the same kind of freight from one consignor to one consignee, and a carload quantity from the same point of shipment to the same destmuiion, consisting of like freight or freight of hkks charnoter, from more than one consignor^ to one consignee, cr from one consignor to more than one consignee, is not justified by the difference in cost of handling. . Under the ofiicinl classification the articles known in trade as grocei-y articles are so classified us to discriminate uiijmtly in rates between carloads and less thun'carloads upon many articles, and a revision ot the classification and rates to correct unjust differences and give these respective modes of shipment more relatively reasonable rates is necessary and is so ordered, The Pan-Aiuerionii Conforonoe.

FOUEOAST. tho Blalr Bill to Beach a Tote in the Sen-ate tUe Present Week. Washington, March 17.-The Benate is to continue the consideration of the Blair educational bill intermittently during the week until Thursday. There la a general desire-to get rid of it, for it has occupied the attention of the aenat^'to the exclusion of other important bu^ij-ness for several weeka. The fato of the bill is probeblematical. Mr. Blair claims that it will paisa by a small majoHty. Senators Aldrich and Faulkner, wjho b'aTe taken great interest in the oppcMi-tion to the biU,'believe that there iia 'gOod majority of the senate pledged against it. Mr. Hawley is booked for a speech on-the bill, and Mr. Evarts will close the general debate. It has been agreed that on Thursday, at 2 O'dclockj Mr; Blair shall be given the floor for an hour to make a final appeal in behalf of the measure, and that debate oil th^ amendments shall be- conducted unde^ the five-minute rule. When the' final vote of the Blair bill has beeh tkkeii there will be'a struggle for precedence amotag the friends of several impbrtani measures. The sub-committee. having in charge the MbEinley uhd6r-valua| tibns bill has been working hard upon it with a view to getting itintothesenateii^ time to ' antflgbnize, with it any other measnre which ;may claim the right of way after the Blair bill, Among the^ other measures which will .be-pressed are the bill for the , admission of Wyor ming into the 'Unioh'; the: Pacific Ti�il-roads funding bill;the Sherman anti' truBtbill, and the Hale .bill for the ihi crease of the navalestablishment;-: The; Montana election case will be: reported] to the senate early in ;tbe : yeek .and it will have right of way if the cominil feela disposed to press it. .The up deficiency bill will be taken; up; befor^ the end of the week and passed without; much debate. ... r:.: i,.:; i' \ In the secret aession the .polph oom-' mittee may bring ,;Up:8on�_ething.., new,} although what it will agree; upon is not; known to the members of the.committee! yet;,, . ,: ,.,� ,, ,.i; ;;,;i;.,r ! Other matter tp; be debat^^j; in sec^tj session is the contest" over ,the,,noniina-: tiona of district judge ; nd! attorney for'; the Northern district of Florida. In itiie House the direct tax bill, the measure that! caused the long deadlock in the house last year, is to be brought up for consi; oration by the judiciary coinmittee some! day this week. � The contested election j case of Miidd vs.: Compton,: from; the i Fifth Maryland district,; will be oalled, up n either Tuesday or Thursday, if nothing intervenes. It will .be pushed to a conclusion by the Republicans, iwho; will seat Mr. Mudd. There; is prospect; of ano'ther bitter, party straggle, oy^r! this case. On Tuesday . the elections' committee expects to take action on the case of Bowen vs. Buchaiian, of the Tenth district of Yirginiai and there Is a chance that it will also be brought up in the hoiifie and disposed of before the week has ijaased- Saturday will be devoted to eulogies on the life of the late Representative Gay of Louisiana..
