1. A. GRIFFIN REPLIES TO
DAILY NEWS EDITORIAL ON
FREIGHT RATE ADVANCES
(From Chicago Dally News.)
Mr. Griffin Replies.
I desire to call attention to an edito
rial printed in The Daily News. May
21. headed "Back Fire on the Shippers."
'In which you make the following state
ments: First, that my representation
of the case Is not candid; second, that
what I did have to say was based upon
the action of the shippers' conference,
and. third, that I had no right to pose
as a business man having interests in
common with the shippers.
The circulation for signatures of a
statement relating to freight rates was.
as far as I was concerned, confined to
fellow members of the Railway Busi
ness association, and no reference was
made tp the shippers' conference. I
personally attended this conference
and have no criticism to make on any
thing that was done there and none
was made or Intended by me, but what
I "deprecated" was contained in an ar
ticle sent out by the Illinois Manufac
turers' Association, dated May 7. and.
as a member of that Association, I
personally wrote a letter to each of its
individual members, dated May 17. In
this I referred to the misleading and
unfair statements contained in the
circular of May 7 mentioned above, and
In doing so I was "candid." I said
that the statement "that railroads are
rapidly increasing their net earnings"
was not true and as to the correctness
of my statement I beg to refer to the
The latest Interstate-commerce com
mission reports show that during the
month of March eleven systems, repre
senting every railroad north and west
on a line drawn through Chicago and
St. Louis, show an increase in gross
earnings for the month of March, of
nearly $7,000,000 compared with March.
1909. while the net earnings for the
same roads in the same period show
a decrease of $965,000; and the Inter
state commerce commission figures for
the ten months, July to March 31, in
1910, as compared with 1909. show an
Increase in gross of over $50,000,000.
while the net earnings of these same
systems In the same period of compari
son, show a falling off of over $3,500.
000. And. as comparatively little of
the Increases In wages had even gone
Into effect during March, the railroads
must provide some means to increase
a revenue that is already decreasing
on an increased amount of business,
and there Is no way for railroads to
provide this except by increasing their
rates, and surely there is "reason for
the need of it"
In the third paragraph on the sec
ond page of this Illinois Manufac
turers' Association circular of May 7
It Is stated that 7.99 per cent was
earned on the dividend-paying stock,
making no allowance for the 34 per
cent, of stock on which no dividends
were paid. I might, with equal propri
ety, make the statement that there
was no dividend paid on the non-divi
dend paying stock. For a clearer defi
nition, the average earnings should be
based upon the entire stock, and not
upon the best paying portion of It, un
less there is some reason why the
$2,500,000,000 representing the 34 per
cent should not have received any divi
dends at all.
In the final paragraph of the edito
rial it is stated that I should not be
allowed to pose as a business man.
"having no interest in common with
the shippers." Inasmuch as my con
cern shipped an average of 350.000 tons
df finished product during 1906 and
1907. and we were obliged to receive
more than 350,000 tons of iron to fur
nish this, plus enormous quantities of
coke, coal and other supplies, I can
safely claim to have shipped In and
out 750,000 tons a year, and as there
are no railroads who can afford to haul
this material, or any part of it. without
having a revenue from it, an increase
of 10 cents a ton on my hauling charge
would amount to $75,000 and, there
fore. I have "business" interests In com
mon with other shippers." The 350,000
tons of finished product shipped repre
sented in the neighborhood of $10,000.
000. This $10,000,000 represented most
ly labor, with the exception of the
cost of the ore and coal in the mines.
All the balance was made up of wages
and profit on the different conditions
of the raw material until it was fin
My Illinois plants produced 60 per
cent or this amount, or $6,000,000 a
year. For three years our Chicago
plants have not run more than half
capacity. Therefore, there was $3,000,
000 a year less in distribution because
of a corresponding shrinkage in sales.
As most of our iron and coal comes
from Illinois, this $3,000,000 a year was
not distributed in Chicago, as would
have been the case had we worked on
the same output that we did in 1906
and 1907. And a great deal of that
$3,000,000 which was not paid was
taken out of the business firms situ
ated in or near Chicago by the non
purchases from their varied business
on the part of the community that
would have received the $3,000,000 a
year for three years. That is the rea
son why I have a right, as a business
man, to deprecate any unfair or un
called-for obstacles that are placed In
the way of my business and the hun
dred other varieties of business in this
country that are affected by the money
put into circulation by the railroads.
When it is further considered that my
business constitutes but 10 per cent
of the cost of a car and that there
were nine other units similarly affect
ed, most of which would have been
tributary to Chicago, anyone can &ee

interests that the railroad companies

improvements and purchases, and will

BOYS TAKE A BACK SEAT
Spelling Contests Held in New Orleans
Prov Girls Superior to Their
The result of the spelling contests
in the New Orleans public schools
again demonstrates the superior pro
ficiency of the girls, practically all of
the victors being members of the
gentler sex. Last year the same thing
was true and the matter was quite
generally commented on In the press
and at gatherings where educational
subjects were discussed.
So far as our information goes there
have been no contests to determine
the pupils In other branches of study,
but it would be interesting to know
(f this feminine superiority is found
to exist in all studies, or if they are
confined only to particular branches.
Doubtless this result id due in part to
the fact that the female mind ripens
at an earlier age than Is the case with
the masculine mind, although there is
little doubt that the reminine intel
lect along certain lines is more acute
than th masculine, which would seen,

young women that are going into po

spelling of the public school pupils

Some days later he wrote again that

their Hyperbole Gassaway and got
this answer: "I regret to inform you

that much of the comb honey is adul

bo cultivated rather shallow between
the rows, with horse and cultivator,

tools: Hoe, garden rake, four-tlned
