ITEM Ou acconnt of agitation every where for a reductiou of rates it is said but little construction of rail road liies has been going on this summer In Kentucky a railrod man said Tuesday afternoon no tracks for new lines have been laid all season with the exception of little side coal lines and other lines connecting manufacturing sites to the main line of the road This is the first summer r in years it is declared that the railrods have manifested such hesitation in the construction of new lines When asked for the cause of this condi tion a railroad man said The Z railroads are getting leary about this reduction in rates Down South a reduction in rates has been enforced in a few States and with the rate as low as it has been fixed the railroads find that they are un able to give the best service and make a reasonable profit Some sections of the country are settled so thinly that the railroads cm run only a few trains a day and then make only a fair profit John E Schuyler
