One result of the low rates which have
been made on grain from Missouri river
points Is a counteraction of the evil effect
on Omaha of the 'Frisco's Kansas Clty-
Memphls "equalliatlon" tariff, calculated
to give Kansas City an immense amount
of grain which has always moved through
Omaha. When the rates were cut from
Missouri river to Chicago, they were also
cut to Memphis, the tariff to that pol.it
being 9 cents from Omaha and 8 cents from
Kansas City. As the cut rate from Kan
sas City is 1 cent under the Kansas Clty
Memphls proportional under the equaliza
tion plan, the grain naturally goes by the
cut rate, and the 'Frisco's "equalization"
It Is said but a small amount of grain,
in comparison with what the railroad peo
pfe expected to get, has gone to Kansas
City from what Is regarded aa Omaha's
territory. From . the time the 'Frisco a
plan went into effect, the Omaha grain
firms, determined to hold their own, paid
I to 8 centa more for grain than the mar
ket warranted, simply In order to hold
prestige and bring the grain througn
Omaha. They have handled large quanti
ties of grain without any profit.
The cut ratea will keep Omaha from
harm at the hands of the Rock Island
and "Frisco until August 10. when they
become noneffective. In the meantime
