Omaha Commercial Club Secretary
Gives His Opinion on Raise.
Chicago , Oct. 27. The shippers who
, oppose prospective freight rate ad-
\ancos attacked certain valuations
placed on their property by railroad
witnesses when 10. J. McVann , man
ager of the traffic bureau of the Omaha -
ha Commoicinl club , took the stand
before the interstate commerce commission -
mission today. | i
Tlio witness ruthlessly reduced the
valuation of $3,300,000 placed on the
Durllngton road's terminal property
by Geneial Manager Waul of the railroad -
, road at Omaha. The assessed value
of the terminus , the witness stated ,
'was ' $831,205. "This , " continued Mr.
McVann , "Is about 25 percent less
than the actual value which makes the
latter about $1,000,000. I found that
the lailroads In Omaha paid about 50
percent more than the actual value of
land so that Mr. Ward's estimate
would have to bo cut in two to give
the correct value of the terminal
lands. "
Tlio witness declared that similar
conditions exist at St. Paul , Minneap
olis and Duluth. j
After discussing the items of gross
piolit , tlio percentage of supply cars ,
hauled by the roads and tlio increased
minimum carload weight , Mr. McVann '
gtue Ills opinion of the proposed in '
creased freight rates.
"It is my honest opinion , " lie said ,
' that the Increases will not add to the
revenue of the railway , but will do- their revenue by its effect on
business In a stoppage of the move
ment of goods. "
