Defendants in Petition to
AH the carriers of the Bute are named

l.---.-i- .. v
wv uikiiium vuuiiucrce commission d;
the Bouston Chamber of Commerce Fri-
day asking that tariff renting to rates
to Galveston and towns and villages near-
by be placed on a mileage basis as is
Houston and the majority" of other
-. The petition follows a petition from
the Galveston Commercial association
to the interstate commerce commission
asking that the existing differential over
Houston of 12 cents first class com-
modity products be reduced to 7 cents.
As now provided in established tariffs
rates from Texas points to Galveston
can not be over 12 cents higher than
rates to Houston regardless of mileage.
: The rate on most products originating
at points more than 250 miles from Gal-
veston the rate is the same as Houston.
On cotton ne of the moat important
products of the Houston territorx tne
rate is the same to both cities irom
points 210 miles distant from Galveston.
v In its petition to the interstate com-
merce commission the Chamber of Com

transportation codes and alleges that
their provisions are being violated be

"The -cent differential over Houston
to GalvcKtou existed prior to 1018 but
was raised that year to 0 tents when a
general-rate raise was granted. In 1920
another rate raise was granted and the
differential was again boosted this time
to 12 cents which tariff now exists. Now
Galveston argues in my opinion unjustly
that conditions are again on a pre-war
basis and that the 7-cent differential
should be again established. This they
do without any reference to the fact that
war-time rates have not been reduced
and show little signs of being reduced
any time soon.
Should Get Like Treatment.
"We think that Galveston is no better
than any other town and should be sub-
ject to the same treatment as Houston
and other cities. In other Words we be-
lieve and we think we are right that
rates to Galveston should be figured on
a mileage basis. Where a small differ-
tial exists although a great difference
in mileage gives Houston an advantage
our favorable geographical position is

THE PAH Manitoba. Juht 29. The
k church of the cult of Omar has expired.
1 Founded on the Kubaiyat or umar
Khayyam a new religious organisation
was born In The Pas this spring. It
grew rapidly but today only three of
its original members would admit that
they still held firm to their beliefs.
The exodus from membership start-
ed when a new convert declared the
cult was formed with the object of get-
ting a government permit to parchase
liquor under guise of its necessity for
sacramental purposes. Officials of the
cult vainly sought to check Withdrawals
by denying that they had any suck ob-
ject in view.
