ing In the ear shortage question.

crimination?" asked Commissioner
"Only that somebody was buying
cars," replied tho witness. "Tho price
of cars runs from $1 to $5 a car. Some
weeks the superintendent of our mill
at Tacoma saw a very large car being
switched around. He asked the con
ductor If wo were going to get that
car. The conductor asked him how
much it wns worth to him. Tho su
perintendent said that while wo want
ed thut car pretty bailly, we were not
going to pay for it. Tho conductor
said that It was worth $10 to him,
and we did not get tho car."

Northern Pacific, wanted to find out
the names of shippers who had paid
Tor cais and tho names or employes
who had received tho money.

going Into the matter, and remarked
that that was a matter Tor tho rail
road company to investigate.
"But we dispute that any such prac
tice exists," said Mr. Cannon.
"The commission has testimony
over tho country that the
practice is a pretty universal ono,"
Commissioner Lane said.
