M'CAULL COMPANY INVOKES STATE AID I'IkIiI" Ibe Knstrrn It nllronds' Kfforl 'to Mini (Mil t'xe of (itilf I'urts r Klrvnltir Also nt .siiikc The iiin.idainus suit of the McCaiill-Web ster Ornlp company of Minneapolis against the Chicago. Mllwsukre & St. Paul Itall road coinpnnj. to he heard before Judge (Ireen In district court Monday, means much to thu farmers of northwestern Iowa. On the determination of this action will depend whether the farmers can get - cents more a bushel for their corn tli.tn they can by shipping It to Chicago. The suit is to compel tho Milwaukee rail road to switch cars In which grain has been shipped over Its lino for transfer to the Union elevator In this city. The Mc-Caull-Wchster Oraln company alleges that tho railroad company refuses to allow the rant In which grain has been shipped to be removed from Its tracks and that In order to transfer the grain to the elevator WHgons and teams have to he employed. This, It Is chimed, Is such an expensive manner of transferring the grain that It practically puts an embargo on the ship ment of grain to Council Muffs. I'ntll within tho List few months most of the grain bought by dealers In north western Iowa and Dakota was shipped lo Chicago and from there to the Atlantic coast. The Clilcago-Xew York trunk lines Increased their rates on grain 2 cents per hundredweight. This caused the shippers to seek another route for their grain, (ulf I'oils (iel lliiliici. The raads running south began to hid for the btislncbs and the shippers. found that by sending their groin to CouncJJ Bluffs and then rcshlpplng to Knnpas City, whence It was taken to the gulf ports for shipment to4Kurope, they could make better rates than by shipping to the Atlantic ports. This enabled them to pay a higher price for the grain In Iowa and the farmers havq been In consequence receiving 2 cents a bushel more than heretofore. Tho Milwaukee, while accoptlng ship incuts to Council muffs, refused to switch or mnke transfer of any of Its cars here to the Union elevator, holding out "for the long haul to Chicago and thence to New York. Several cars loaded with grain which the McCaull-Wcbster company wants switched to the Union Pacific for delivery to tho elevator nre standing on the tracks of the Milwaukee, awaiting tho result of the suit. The same company recently had ft similar suit against the Chicago & Northwestern road, but tho latter backed down from Its position and the matter was settled out of rourt by tho Northwestern agreeing to transfer cars wherever desired by the grain compnny. If the railroad company wins In this suit Monday It will practically put an embargo on the shipment of grain to Council IlluftH, as the shippers cannot 'afford to transfer tho grain from the Milwaukee's tracks to the elevator by wagon. .pir KltMiMor nl Sink. The McCaull-Wcbster company has for somo time contemplated building a large elevator In this city, but It this suit la decided against It It will. It Is said, nbandon tho project. This would prove an Immenso loos not only to Council Hluffs, but tho farmers of that section of Iowa from which tho company buys a large part of Its grain. The McCaull-WebBter company has filed a complaint against the Milwaukee road with tho state railroad commission and this body Is expected to hear the ense In this city soon.
