IMPORTANT IOWA
Glucose Concerns Attack Fates
on Corn Products.
Washington, May 18. Argument!
were presented before the Interstate
commerce commission In two cases ol
Importance to Iowa.
One of thm la the case of the traf
fic bureau of the Sioux City Compter
clal cinb vs. Anderson and Sitlino Riv
er Railway company. This involve
an attack by the traffic bureau of the
lumber rates from the south and
southwestern points to Sioux City,
which ire declared to be unreason
able. Sioux City people are seeking
the Dos Moines and Omaha lumber
rate of V (cuts, against a present
rate of 30 e nts.
The other case is the state of Iowa,
the Clinton Sugar Refining company
and J. C. Uuhlnger Brothers' company
of Keokuk vs. the Atlantic Coast line
and a large number of eastern roads.
In this case the state and the com
panies named are attacking rates on
corn products, more especially glucose.
It Is alleged that Iowa concerns are
compelled to pay exorbitant rates In
comparison with rates charged eastern
concerns, particularly the Corn Prod
ucts Refining company, which has
Standard Oil affiliations and which has
numerous plants In different parts of
the country.
George T. Roll of Sioux City Is here
representing the traffic club. In the
glucose case Judge Henderson and C
A. Robbins "re here for the state, A.
H. Kierstlnir and .1. O. Holloson for
the Clinton company and Hugh W
'.irecn of Keokuk for Hubingor Rroth
era.
Homestead Bill Still In Conference
Washington. May 20. The Rorah
bill Is still In conference awaiting an
agreement by the senate conferees, If
such agreement can be reached. It la
not all unlikely that the conference
committee will disagree. Representa
tive Mondoll of the house conferees
said concerning the measure: "If the
people of the west will stand by theii
conferees, a three-year homestead bill
can be eventually obtained without
surrendering to the impossible demand
of those whose real purposes are to
retain so far as Is possible, all land
titles in the federal government."
If a man doesn't know when to stop
be acquires a wife who will toll him.
