Lincoln , Neb. , April G , 1908 The first iormal complaint filed with the State Railway Commission was on account of discrimination against a firm of horse dealers at Grand Island. It was alleged that the railroad company imposed unreasonable hardships upon the complain , ants in the transaction of their business and failed to provide suitable shipping facilities. It was adjusted to the complete satisfaction of the complainants without a hearing and was dis missed by them after an informal conference at which all interest , ed parties appeared. No. 2 came from a farmers' elevator company at Alda which had been unable to secure a site on the railroad right-of-way for its warehouse. The claims of the elevator company were granted within two weeks after the complaint was filed , and no action by the commission was necessary. No. 3 was the case of the City ol Lincoln for reduced streetcar fares. For a long time the city authorities had endeavored by ordinances and through the courts to compel street car com panies to sell six ticlcets for 25 cents. Every effort was suc cessfully resisted until the Com mission took the matter in hand , but its order was promptly obeyed , and six for a quarter has been the rate on Lincoln street cars since November 1 , 1907. Besides securing a sub stantial reduction of fares , the j Commission established an im portant precedent by fixing a valuation upon the street car lines and limiting their earnings to a reasonable return thereon. Although much has been said and written in regard to basing transportation charges upon the amount of investment in rail road property , this is , as far ns known , the first instance in the entire country where such apian has been put into actual prac tice. Nos.1 and 5 were filed by builders and contractors at Blair , complaining that the rate of 3 | cents per cwt. on sand from Fremont - mont to Blair was excessive. Two months after the complaint was filed the rate was reduced to 2 cents per cwt. , which was accepted by the contractors as reasonable and entirely satis factory. Nos. 0 and 12 were brought by certain independent oil compan ies asking for reduction of local rates on petroleum and its prod ucts which would enable them j to compete with the Standard Oil monopoly. After a hearing and thorough investigation , rates were ordered reduced 80 per cent and the new schedule has been in effect since January 25. As a result independent distributing stations are being established at a number of in terior points , and present iiidi cations are that Nebraska will soon enjoy the benefit ol prox imity to the rich oil fields of Kansas by reason of this order. No. 7 asked for the establish ment of a system of joint rates which would give farmers along the line of the Missouri Pacific from Presser to Superior the advantage of a competing market - ket for their live stock and grain at Omaha instead of confining them to Kansas City. These rates were established and have been in effect lor seveml months although repeated efforts to se cure them had failed prior t < the creation of a Railway Com mission. No. 8 was against the Greal Northern Railway company for refusal to furnish cars for graii shipments to Omaha. As a re suit of this policy the farmers along that line between Sioux City and O'Neil were compellec to ship their grain to Minneap olis , paying freight on an un necessarily long haul and bein deprived of better prices whicl the nearer market frequently affords. A hearing was held 01 this matter on which the defend ant company pleaded a techni cality to the effect that the offending carrier was a subsid iary line instead of the Crea Northern itself. This was no accepted as a sufficient excuse however. An order was issuec September 10 , 1907 , requiring cars to be furnished promptly for Omaha shipments , whicl has been obeyed to the letter. No. 9 was brought by a num ber of creameries against the railroad and express companies lor inadequate facilities and im proper handling of cream ship ments. An extended hearing was held , at the conclusion o which an order was issued re quiring the railroad companie to make substantial improve ments upon their terminal facil ities at Omaha aud to exercise due care in loading and unload ing cream cans , whether fillet or empty. Every point con tended for by the creamery com panics was granted. No. 10 was against the Mis souri Pacific Ralway Company on account of' the dangerou condition of its tracks and road bed. The Commissioners mad acomplete inspectionof the road traveling by hand-cars , freigh trains , automobiles and or foot. An order was issued re quiring a specified amount o work to be done on the property within a certain time and pre scribing a system of reports bj which the Commission might b : ept advised of the progress iade in complying therewith. L second trip of inspection ) roved conditions still far from atisfactory , and another order vas issued limiting the speed of ill trains. This order had the esired effect , and the work of mprovement was pushed with uch vigor than when winter : losed in a third inspection ound the lines comparatively afe , and the speed limit was emoved. Rails and ties are inw in largo quantities along he Missouri Pacific , and the mining1 summer will see a re- ently debilitated and run down oad placed in first-class physi cal condition. No. 11 \\as a complaint that certain unjust charges had been xssessed against a carload of coal received at York. The charges were cancelled as a re suit of the Commission's inves tigation and the coal was deliv ered to its owner. No. 13 was for the opening of depot on the Hock Island at Jniversity Place. In an opinion which ably answered the con tention of railroad attorneys that the Commission lacks juris liction in a matter of this nature , the erection of a depot andlhe naintcnance of an agent as Brayed for were ordered. This case has been appealed to the courts , where it is now pending. No. M was on account of un satisfactory train service on the Union Pacific. Conditions com plained of were promptly rein edied and the case was dismissed on motion of complainants. No. 15 asked for a reduction of the 20 cent rate on cotton piece goods and manufactured garments between Lincoln and Crete. Granted , a rate of 1 cents being established by order of the Commission. No. 16 was brought by a farm ers' elevator company at Munle\ against the Missouri Pacific for refusal to build a side-tracl to its elevator. The Commission ordered the track built , but the railroad carried the case intn federal court on injunction pro ceedings , where it is now pend No. 17 had the effect of re ducing the rate on stone between Weeping Water and Nehawlca and Lincoln from 2J cents to 2 cents per cwt. without a hearing. No. 18 abolished discrimina tions of long standing in favor of certain classes on telephone service , also without the neces sity of a hearing. No. 19 adjusted serious dis criminations against cattle feed ers in the matter of grain rates into Kent , Merchiston , Genoa , Central City and Kearney , and enabled them to ship corn from distances of 100 miles or more. Nos. 20 , 21 and 22 are cases brought by the York Commercial Club to compel the Burlington and Northwestern to establish a transfer switch and traclc scales at that station. Hearings were held at York and Lincoln , and the Commission is now awaiting briefs which will be filed by all parties to the controversy. No. 23 is Senator Sibley's case against the Burlington for a further reduction of grain rates. The Commission undertook to go into this matter on its own motion last fall , but was pre vented by a clause in the Aldrich law which requires a written complaint to be filed before the rates fixed by that law can be changed. A hearing will soon be held in this case. No. 21is a complaint brought by the City of Lincoln against two street car companies to prevent stock watering. It is a companion case to No. 3 , referred to above , and has not yet been decided. Nos. 23 , 28 , 29 , 550 and 81 are cases brought by citizens of Fairbury to secure a more equit able rate adjustment for the business interests of that town. Although these complaints have but recently been filed , it is un derstood that substantial con- essions have already been of. ered by the railroad companies , ind the prospects are that they vill be satisfied without a hear "iff- " "iffNo. No. 20 is another new com- ) laint on account of the location ) f the stock yards at Kenesaw. No. 27 is on account of the closing of the Broken Bow tele- raph office at night , and No. ! ! 2 isks for the opening of a rail road station at Odessa. No hear- ngs have yet been held in either of these cases. This is a complete list of for- nal complaints filed with the Commission up to the present ime. It will be noted that the Commission's orders have been generally obeyed , only two cases being appealed to the courts for eview. It cannot be said that this is on account of any favor- tism to the railroads , for every order issued thus far has been igainst thorn. It is rather due .o the conciliatory policy of bringing the dinputants together or a heart to heart talk when ever possible , many cases being idjusted in this manner which otherwise would have ended in prolonged hearings or expensive lawsuits. Whenever formal pro ceedings were necessary , how ever , no pains have been spared to develop the exact facts and no hesitancy has been shown in leciding in accordance there with , even though the uniform tendency of the opinions might indicate to an uninformed ob server an unlair bias. With the railroads fighting desperately against governmental regulation all along the line , it is certainly a high tribu.c to the Nebraska Commission's intelligence and sense ot justice that only two of the nine orders issued against them have been resisted.
