eociation over Nevada freight , thi
there has been a tariff in existence f <
ton years which , when first publish
allowed the Iowa trunk lines the
proportion of Sacramento rate c
freight for all points in Nevada. Th
freight has always been billed by It
Union Pacifla at their proportion <
the Sacramento rale , but Iho atbitrn
rates charged by the Central Pacil
company on its business forced near
all to Sin Francuco rithur by rail i
water routes. The Central PaoiG
however , reduced the rate so
to make it practicable to ship from tl
east direct. The Union Pacific h
asked nothing of the trunk lines mo
than it has enjoyed for ton years pti
which is simply to bill their Novai
freight to the respective proportio
of the Sacramento rate for each Hi
east of Ugden. Several Union Poci
