PRIVATE CAR LINES ON RACK
Intentata Commerce Oammiuion Investi
gating Refrigerator Service,
RATES OF RAILROADS MUCH LOWER
Pennsylvania and Illlnola Central
Charge Much Less for Icing
Than the Private
WASHINGTON. Oct. IS. What promisee
to extend Into a legal and legislative battle
against private car lines was precipitated
by the Interstate Commerce commission
by the course taken today at the beginning
of the hearing Instituted to show the con
nection between refrigerator car lines and
Counsel for the commission directed every
effort to bring out the fact that
great railroad systems operating their
own refrigerator car llnea give to their
shipper tC much lower rate for refrigeration
than la obtained on roads that are com
pelled to operate In connection with private
car lines. In this effort two railroads, not
ably the Illinois Central and the Pennsyl
vania, through their traffic freight man
agers, who were on the stand the greater
part of the day, apparently aided the com
mission. As a result there were many
sharp tllta between the counsel for the
commission and the attorneya for the Ar
mour car lines and other private com
panies. The action of the commission In
Initiating and prosecution the complaints
has the double purpose of establishing
it Jurisdiction over the private llnea and
correcting the evils complained of. The
chief contest is expected to develop on the
point of jurisdiction.
Objection from Armour Line.
Chairman Knapp opened the hearing by
reviewing the proceedings instituted and
calling up the first case, which waa di
rected practically against all of the roads
of the southeastern United States and the
Armour car lines. Frank Barry, who repre
sented the Interstate Commerce commis
sion, in bringing out the evidence and ex
amining witnesses, stated that several
road had not filed contracts existing with
private car lines and these were called for
by Chairman Knapp. Mr. Urlon, for the
Armour car lines, objected to proceeding
until the commission has announced the
general scope and purposes of the In
quiry and indicated whether there Is to be
a concrete finding on which aome subse
quent proceedings could be had.
The commission after consultation an
nounced that formal complaints had been
filed against specific companies to ascer
tain whether thetr charges are reasonable
or. if discriminations are made against any
persons and that it was not prepared to
gay what Us subsequent course would j

F. B. Bowles, freight traffic manager of
the Illinois Central road testified .hat his
railroad operates 2,458 refrigerator car and
had ho agreement with private car llnea
for additional cara. He said, however,
there la a difference in the amount paid,
according to the territory In which the
cure are operated. He eald the rato north
of Cairo, 111., is 1' cent a mile and from
Chicago to the aoutheast of a cent a
Mr. Bowles filed a statement to show
that the Illinois Central railroad refriger
ator cars average about forty-four miles a
day, and If paid for on the mileage basis
the receipts per car would be about 33
' cents. In other words, he said the private
car lines received a much higher rate for
service than do the railroads themselves.

President Roosevelt's Speech.
Mayor McCarthy presented the governor,
who in a brief speech Introduced the presi
dent, who spoke aa follows:
I trust I need hardly say how great la
my pleasure at speaking In this historic
capital of your historic state; the statu
than which no otiicr lias contributed a
larger proportion to the leadership of the
nation; (or on the honor roll of thoso
American worthies whose greatness is not
only tor the age but (or all time, not only
for one nation but for all the world, on this
honor roll Virginia's name stands above
all others. And in greeting all of you. 1
know that no ono will grudge my saying
a special word of acknowledgement to the
veteruiiH of the civil war. A man would
Indeed be but a poor American who could
without a thrill witness the way In whloh,
In city after city In the north aa Ul the
south, on every public occasion, tha men
who wore tiie blue and the men who wore
the grny now murch and etand shoulder
to shoulder, giving tangible proof tiial we
are all now in fact as well a In name a
reunited people, a people infinitely richer
all Americana by you men who fought in
! the great war. Last Memorial day 1 spoke
Hi HionKlyn, at the unveiling or llie staluo
of a northern general, under tiie auspioes
of the Grand Army of the Republic, and
that great audience, cheered every allusion
to tiie vslor and self-devotion of tlio men
who followed Lee as heartily as they
cheered every allusion to the valor and
self-devotion of the men who followed
Crant. The wounds left by tho great civil
war have long healed, but its memories te
main. Grateful Legacy of War. '
Think of it, oh, my countrymen, think
of the good fortune that is ours! That
whereas every other war of modern times
has leit feelings of rancor and bitterness
to keep asunder the combatants, our great
war has lett to tiie sons and daughters
of the men who fought, on whichever side
they fought, the, suinn right to feel the
keenest pride in the groat deeds alike 'of
tho men who fought on one side and of
the men who fought on tho other. The
proud Helf-KucrilR'f. the resuluto and dar
ing courage, the high and steadfast de
votion to the rixht as each man saw It,
whether northerner or southerner, these
'liinlitles render all Americans, forever the
debtors of those who in the dark days
from '61 to 'lii proved their truth by their
endeavor. Here around Richmond, here in
your own state, there lies battlefield after
battlefield, rendered forever memorable by
tho men who counted death us but a little
thing when weighed in the balance against
doing t.ieir duty hs It was given them to
see it 'these men have left us of the
younger generation not merely the memory
of what they did In war, but of whst they
ditl In peace. Foreign observers predicted
that when such a great war closed it would
be impossible for the hundreds of thou
sands of combatants to return to the paths
of peace. They predicted ceaseless disor
der, wild turbulence, the alternation of
snarchy and despotism. But the good
sense and self-restraint of tho average
American citizen falsified these prophecies.
The great armies disbanded and the pri
vate In the ranks, like the officer who had
commanded Mm, went back to take up
(he threads of his life where he had
dropped them when the call to arma came.
It waa a wonderful, a marvelous thing. In
a country consecrated to peace with hut
an Infinitesimal pegular army, to develop
rinicklv t! e tunc hosts which fronted
I one another tietwwn the James and the
Potomac and along the Mississippi and lta
tributaries. But it was an even more won
derful, an evf n more marvelous thing, how
these, great hosts, once their work done,
resolved themselves Into tha general fttbilu
of the nutlon (
Forty Iran of K.ffert.
Great though the need of praise ia which
I due the south for tne soldierly valor of
her sons displayed during the four yeara
of war, 1 think that even urea tor praise
m due to her for what her people have
accomplished in the forty yeara of peace
which followed. For forty yeara the south
has made not merely a courageous, but
at times a aesperaie struggle, us site nsa
striven for inoul and material well-being
Her success has been extraordinary, and
