RAILROADS WITHHOLD DATA

salsslaa. CHICAGO, Feb. 26. The Interstate Com
merce comm lesion and the management of
western railroads have locked horns, and
It la expected that a legal contest will fol
low. The difficulty arises from a refusal
by the traffic managers of the western roads
td furnish the commission with data rela
tive to rebates which were paid during 1901.
Concerted action has been taken In the
matter and I th result of several meetinws
among the executive official, at which th
question wa dlacussed at length. It I
understood that all have agreed to stand
together and that the refusal to give the
Information sought wa made after legal
Sdvlc had been taken.
Attorneys for the various railroads ar
said to be a unit In asserting that the com
mission has not the power to compel the
production of the data desired and the rail
road officials have refused to give it, be
cause they believe the commission desires
to punish the packers who accepted re
bates. When the commission wa here last each
trafflo manager waa asked to give the re
bates paid by hi line during the year and
to whom paid, several f them,, among
them being Paul Morton of the Santa Fe,
told th commission that they could not
do it off band, but would have the data
furnished if it existed.
After watting aeveral week th commls-
sloa wrote letter to each of th trafflo
managers in .which 6ategorlcal question
werd asked and answers were requested
After several meeting It wa decided that
tha data necessary, to .prepare th replies
demanded .was sot In .existence. .
It 1 tnerally . believed that the com
mission, will try to enforce the request.
