Interstate Commission to Con
sider Their Reasonableness.
Action of Cincinnati Shippers Ap
pealing to President Induces This
Course Cites Judge Speer's Ruling
In Southern Railway Case.
The decision of the Interstate com
mission Unit It )iild consider the
reasonableness of rates of notice of
Increases by the shippers and prior to
their filing of protests Is regarded as
of widespread Importance. . Following
closely upon the action of Cincinnati
shippers appealing to the president to
lndiico the commission to take this
course, it 13 generally believed here
that the suggestion calling for the
statement comes from President
Roosevelt. Chairman Knnpp said that
the law contemplated Investigation of
the reasonableness of rates by tho
commission alter they have become
effective, but ho thought tho commis
sion might decide that the Increase is
effective after notice has been glvon
by n carrier and before the new rate
actually goes Into effect. The com
mission's statement takes that view
of it powers. There is much interest
in the decision by .Judge Speer of the
Southern judicial district of Georgia
granting a preliminary Injunction re
straining tho Atlantic Coast Line, tint
Louisville und Nashville, the Nash
ville, Chattanooga und St. Louis, the
Cincinnati, New Orleans and' Texas
and tho Southern Hallway companies
from putting into effect on Aug. 1
the increased rates on shipments of
staple products from western to south
em points. In 1903 Judge Speer took
tho same course In relation to the In
crease of 2 cents per 100 pounds on
yellow pine by the Southern Hallway
and southeastern carriers, including
the Southeastern Freight association.
The advance was on rates from Geor
gia and Chattanooga to Cincinnati
and other points on the Ohio river.
Tho Increase was promulgated by tho
carriers to take effect April 15, 1900,
and would have become effective ex
cept for tho temporary Injunction
grunted by Judge Speer April 14. On
May 1G the court dissolved tho tem
porary Injunction and withheld fur
ther action until the case could he de
termined by the Interstate commerce
commission. The court placed the car
riers under bond to refund the over
charge should tho commission decide
that Its Increased rate was unreason
able and the new rate was then al
lowed to go Into effect. The commis
sion deciding In favor of the com
plainants, the railroads refused to
obey their order and Judge Speer sus
tained' the commission's decision and
enforced its order favoring the lower

f UPDIKE SUES FOR ELEVATION
I Files Charge With Interstate Com
merce Commission for Allowance.
Following the now famous Peavey ele
vator decision by the Interstate com
merce commission, wherein they
reversed . former decision which al
lowed' an "elevator" charge of not
more than !)i-ceut per bushel, and
then held there should In the future
be no elevator allowances, there have
been a number of charges filed against
tho Union Pacific railroad demanding
reparation upon the ground that un
lawful discrimination in the matter
of elevator charges has been made.
The latest complaint against the
Union Pacific conies from the Updike
Grain company and shows that from
July, 1900, to June 1, 1907, it trans
ferred to the Union Pacific at its ele
vator at South Omaha and becumo en-

cific elevation allowance on 1.3GS cars
containing in aggregate 77,101,140

lowance would amount to a charge of

Reparation In this amount Is demand

Rustlers Running Off Cattle.
That there Is - a band of cattle
rustlers operating In central and north

ranchman. During the pa&t few

to the manner in which they disap

posed they were run off by rustlers.

represented by a committee appointed
at a general conference of shippers held
recently In Chicago, decided at a
meeting hero to ask the presidents ot
eastern railroads to meet them to dis

wise to bring about such a meeting
with the railroad officials, if possible,
at the same time asking them to put
uo advances Into effect until after the
conference had been held. W. C.

Now York Central lines, is said to
