Cleveland, Dec 29- The National Refining Company , with headquarters in this
city, has been awarded reparation amounting to approximately $6,000 and has succeeded in
having the Interstate Commerce Commission established a lower rate on petroleum products
in carloads from Coffeyville, Kansas to Healdton, Oklahoma. The findings of the
commissions examiner are based on an action brought by the company against the railroad
administration and the Atchison, Topeka and Kansas Railroad, filed May 12, 1919, in which
it was alleged that the rates maintained by the railroad were unjust and unreasonable and
in violation of commerce regulations and the federal control act.
