MERCER AND TOE RAILROADS
Fropowd Packing Combine May Eeriouilj
Affect the Esilwajn.
MONOPOLY ON ALL REFRIGERATOR CARS
It Merger I Perfected Packers Mar
Be Able to Dictate (birjfi on
Cars and Force noads
to Par Them.
Whether be mtu-b-mooted packing house
merger bis been effected, abandoned or
merely temporarily postponed Is atlll a
question, but at any rnte some railroads
are sxerclelng an Interest In the proposed
combine which has become quite noticeable.
The railroads bear a much closer relation
to thee big Industries which propose to
units their vast Interests Into one giant
organisation than mar be generally sup
posed at first thought, and, while It Is
not known that any of the railway magnates
are doing anything to prevent the consoli
dation. It Is but natural, as has been
pointed out by a local railroad man, that
they, would as soon see the scheme (all
Through the medium of the railways
lhemselves the packing houses have been
nabled to develop a subsidiary combine of
no mean proportions whose propensities
would be materially enlarged and power
augmented by the formation of the merger
spoken of. This so-called combine Is a
monopoly In the control of the packing
houses over the refrigerator cars. Already
the packers hate succeeded In getting these
cars almost exclusively In their own hands
and are able to exercise an effective voles
In taring what charges the railroads shall
pay for them, but It is said that If the
merger becomes a fact the packers can
limply dictate these charges and the roads
tan come to them or not, just as they
When It la learned that the estimated
amount paid by ths railroads annually to
the packers for the use of these refrigera
tor cars is $5,000,000, the seriousness of
the situation can be appreciated.
Earning- Capacltr of Cars.
Before the new per diem system of charg
ing and collecting for the rental of cars
was inaugurated a few weeks, ago these
cars, as all others, were rented on a mile
age basis. Statistics show that as high as
15 has been collected by the packers for
the use of a single car by the ratlroadi
from Chicago to New York. Of course, the
time the car is in the hands of the railroad
must be charged for Just the same aa if It
wsa actually on the road, traveling. This
disclose something of the possibilities of
this channel of Industry.
These cars make on an average two round
trips a month, that la, between Chicago and
New York, and each car therefore earns
lor the packers $360 a year at this rate, or
sbout 40 per cent of its cash value. The
expense of maintaining a car la placed at
1100 a year, leaving a net profit per car of
J260. When it Is known that a car coats
sbeut $1,000, It will be seen that in four
yeau it will haye paid fur ileeif under tDlS
At present few railroads are building
their own refrigerator caa and even com
paratively few own them. Many roada
have disposed of their refrigerators long
ago. There was a time when the roads
found It mora profitable to build and oper
ate their own refrigerators, and It Is just
barely possible that this time may corns
again. But any effort on the part of ths
railroads to combat the packers by at
tempting to force the latter to use refrig
erators belonging to the transportation com
panies doubtless would precipitate bitter and
almost endless warfare and perhaps be
worse for the roads after all. Ths packers
have for soma time instated on the use by
ths railroads of the packers' cars. For in
stance, when a packer gave a big contract
pf hauling to a road he specified that ths
freight should be transported in one of his
Dwn refrigerators, and in order to get the
business the railroad man came to his
As they contemplate the powerful
weapon they have placed In the hands of
ths packers, the railroad managers must.
It Is said, have serious regrets and feel
Inclined to upbraid themselves for lack of
foresight and business sagacity.
