after ah ex amination of this report which has Justbeen received Despitethe fact thatthe report recommends a raise in the general level of rates Commissioner B J Drummondcallsattention to the fact thatit givesMason City lower rates from the east than the Twin Citiesandnumerous other advan tages to which It is entitled by rea son of itsgeographical position For the purpose of applying the increased rates it is proposed to zone western trunk line territory into three geographical divisions with fixed boundaries Zone 1 In which MasonCity is located em braces the northern peninsula of Michigan all of Wisconsin except that of a line extend ing westward from Milwaukee to Dpdgeyllle thence southto the Illi noisWisconsin state line thence west to the Mississippi river all of Minnesota

Rock Island and Pacific railroad StLouis to Kansas City Zones 2 and 3 include western Minnesota North and South Dakota Nebraska the northern half of Kan jjaa and Colorado and south eastern Wyomingin which rates higher than 1 are proposed Acompromise scale of rates is pro Top application between three zones i Basis The application of these zone scale rates are to be on a mileage basis with

used For example The shortest route between Mason City and Chi cago is 327 miles using the C M St P P to New Hampton thence the C G Wrailroad Present rates arc computed over theshortest single line routes thatdistance is not always a controlling factor It is recommended that no finding be with respect to intra state rates in view of the fact that the several state commissions ara cooperating with the interstate commission arid it Is presumedr the state commissions will eventually workouta system of rates within each state that will be In harmony with the Interstate basis as finally adopted by the interstate commis sion for application to interstate traffic Class Kates Included Included in the proposed report are the class rates between points In western territory zones and points in eastern territory includ IngUHnols and southeastern Wis consln and southeastern territory The proposed readjustment of these so called overhead class rates con templates the use of a basic master scale distance plus the additionof mileage differentials for UJat portion of the total distance Hess of Council Bluffs was ap pointed today prosecu tor to investigate the collision of two speed

dismissed by Welty It was during Yarnes preliminary hearing that defense attorneys at tacked Weltys interests in the case Even if no special grand jury is called it is expected that the en tire matter will come before the regular grand jury in September For example The total distance from New York1 to Mason City via the ahortest possible route is an1 proximately 1150 miles the firat ciass rate for which would be 5180 plus 15 cents for the 155 miles em braced In western territory or a total of which isa reduction of 28 cents under the present first class rateand ia the amount of re duction the transportation depart ment of the Chamber of Commerce has been fighting for nearly six years to accomplish The approxil mate distance from New York to St Paul is 1225 miles for which the first class rate would be plus 19 cents for the 260 miles em braced in western territory or a LoU1 of which is an increase of 17cents over the present rate to St Paul Thus it will be observed Mason City willhave a rate of 17 cents less than St Paul which is another end for which Mason City nas fought for This illustration ia typical of the proposed changes In rates from al eastern points to Ma son City AH
