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 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
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.

In paying tho legal firm of Patterson &

that tho rontrnct with Patterson & Parsons

Holland had been keeping bail company ot

person who ever contested In Iowa games,
but after he wns declared a professional ho
