Nathan Merrlam of the grain firm of Mer
rlam At Holmqulst of Omaha said he had
been in the grain business for about twen
1 ty-Hve years, the corporation of which he
was a member has been In existence since
190.' or 1W3.
"None of the stockholders of the Arm is
In any way interested in any railway com
pany nor docs any own stock in a railway
company," said Mr. MTriam. "The Arm
operates two elevators In Omaha, which
are terminal elevators located on the Mis
souri Pacific railway, but the elevators are
owned exclusively by the Merrlam & Holm
qulst compuny. The company 1 an Inde
pendent company, the capacity of Its
elevators being about SO0,WO bushels, and
while the company generally controls all
ol the grain stored In these elevators
storage capacity Is furnished tor other
customers. The company usually ships all
of Its outgoing grain over the Missouri
Pacific, and the firm receives 1'A cents per
hundred from all outgoing grain shipped
by that railroad. The contract was made
with the Missouri Pacific befer the last
one of its elevators was built. The con
tract Is still in force and these payments
have been made until tha recent agitation
In grain matters, but are under temporary
suspension now. This contract was made
in 1906 and has not since been repudiated,
nor l the contract limited as to time,
game Terms with Others
"It is understood that the same agreement
prevails with all other elevators similarly
situated. There Is no other elevator ex
cept the Merrlnm A Holmqulst elevators
along the Missouri Pacific In Omaha. The
volume of grain shipped by the company
is about 500 cnr per month, or about iOO.OW)
bushels. The switching charges are re
funded to the grain company by the rail
road company when shipped over the Mis
souri Pacific and any other switch
ing, charges.. are... - governed., by
by local legislation. : This rule has been the
custom for years. All switching charges
are refunded by all roads to all shippers
with one exception and that applies to the
rules adopted by the Bouth Omaha Stock
Yards company, which controls the switch
ing facilities at South Omaha, where the
rate Wns charged at the rate some time
ago of $1 In and. $1 out for each car of
grain. A short time" ago the stock yards
company raised the rate to $5 per car and
then reduced it to . $4. This materially
jeopardised the Interests of the Merrlnm ft
Holmqulst company, Mr. Merrlam said, and
. then the rate ww changed to $2 in and $1
out per car. .
I prilkea Control Month Omaha.
The V'pdlke Grain company controls the
South Oniuba elevators and the Merrlam A
Holmqulst company is not charged with
that service down there," said the witness
"I understand that another rate is charged
the I'pdike company there, but I do not
suppose they have to stand for any mora
i f it than we do at Omaha. Such a chaise
of $4 for switching is not made against any
other commodity at Buth Omaha. We
have supposed that some of the grain car
witching charges get back to the elevator
company somehow or other. A bid of Yt
of a cent per bushel would put a competi
tor in possession of the business, and we
are. hence, at this advantage.
"We buy our grain largely on the Union
Pacific, Klkhorn, Minneapolis & Omaha and
Burlington rouds and are an absolutely
dependent compuny. Mr. Holmqulst Is in
terested in line of several elevators on
the Minneapolis ft Omaha road. His con
cern Is known as the HolmqulHt Grain and
Lumber compuny. We have no hesitancy
In buying of country eftvators and maita
no discrimination against them. We do
very little receiving, as we buy almost
wholly from dealers and, we ,di not ask
them where they get their grain. Most of
our bids ale made by telephone."
Mr. Merrlam went at considerable length
as to the ' elevation charges and the cost
of handling grain at terminal points. He
said Omaha is the only market that has
I. (it mi cletaViun charge. He did not know
of any combination in Omaha to fix the
price of grain and h knew of no deals
w hereby prices were fixed and did not
lake part in any such deals. The Union

pany of Oakland, said none of the stork

which he was connected had any stock

"I make the prices that are bid for grain
at our elevators. We have competitors at
nil of these points, but we haa no com
bination of prices with them. Most of our
ompetltors are' buyers for Minneapolis,
though there are some country buyers.
No pool Is entered Into; we are all open
competitors. If we can get more than our
share we do so by bidding higher than our
competitors and then drop back to the cur
rent prices. We seek to make about 4
cents a bushel on wheat, yet seldom ex
ceed i cents. A fair profit on corn would
be about t or 1. crop season we
made less than 1 cent on corn.
gays Mhos-el Haase Are lafalr.
"We do not consider shovel bouses fair
competitors. We have often given better
prices than the shovel houses even at an
actual loss. There Is no discrimination by
the railroads In the matter of cars against
the shovel h ounce. At the terminals we
do not buy from shovel houses if we can
help It, but are not averse to buying from
Independent dealers, suoh farmers' ele
vators. "There la no general understanding not
to deal with unfair dealer. The only
unfair dealer I now recall in our territory
Is P. F. Detners of Emerson. Shovel houses
are unfair competitors.
"The establishment of the Grain exchange
at Omaha and the establishment of ter
minal elevators have been to give the
farmer more for hia grain. The reason we
do better with the Missouri Pacific is bo
cause our terminal elevators are on or
adjacent to their tracks. There Is no rule
against our cars being switched In pref
erence to other cars. The fact that the
Omaha Klevator company has its elevators
largely on the Union Pacific does not give
that company any advantage over us."
Van Dora Test I flea.
J. E. Van Dorn of Council Bluffs of the
Cavert-Van Dorn Elevator company said:
"We have one elevator at Council
Fluffs and' two at other points In Iowa.
We have competitors at each of these
points and try to get . our share of the
buslnesa. We have no agreement with
our competitors as to prices, though
prices are generally based on cards sent
out by W. D. Case of Dee Moines, who is
a market expert, but he has no Interest
In our elevators, nor In any railroad that
I know of. We aim to get a profit of I
cents on corn and I to 4 cents on wheat.
Last year we got but '1 cent on corn and
from 2 to I cents on wheat. We ship
mostly to Council Bluffs and Omaha, A
party by the name of Flynn made us some
trouble for a while at Neola, but Mr.
Cooper, our manager, hired him to run
our elevator for us and then the trouble
ended. At Council Bluffs we have made
claims for switching and outgoing charges
of Hi cents, but they were rejected. These
claims were against the Rock Island,
Burlington and Great Western. We have
an outgoing claim against the Union F
clflc, but have heard nothing about it. We
have been running our Council Bluffs ele
vator since September IS. On the Bur
lington. Union Pacific, and Milwaukee
roads the reoonstgnment charges are ab
sorbed by the outgoing roads; In fact, by
all roads except the Wabash.
Ho Railroad Plants There.
"No elevators In Council Bluffs are
owned by any railroad. Our company
owns Its own elevator. The objection to
grain from the shovel houses Is Its qual
ity -and cleanliness.- . W feel safer in
dealing with regular dealers because of
their better facllltlea for handling grain.
We do not discriminate against tbe
shovel houses only for this reason and
often buy from them. We buy grain for
export and very often pay more for It
than our competitors, and, as they think,
often more than we ought to pay. For
this reason some of the Omaha companies
undertook to drive me out of business In
1804 and 1805. The companies active
In the matter were the Updike Grain
company, the Kansas City Grain company
and the Omaha Elevator company.
"These companies handle about $0 por
cent of all the grain coming to and going
out of this market. I have some times
thought that the railroads have some in
terest in the Updike Grain company and
base this reason from the special priv
ileges that company get at South Omaha.
I know we pay $1 per car to the Union
Stock Yards company and $1 to the out
going roads, none of which Is returned
to us in any way.' The others get ' it all
A. C. Zimmerman, head bookkeeper fer
the Merrlam A Holmqulst company, testi
fied that the last claim paid by the Mis
souri Paclflo for elsvatton was August it.
He believed that- the contract between
the Missouri Pt'ciflt and the Merrlam ft
Holmqulst company was still In force.
Mr. Phllllppl, in his testimony on this
point, stated that ths. contract, between
Merrlam ft llolmqulat had terminated
July $.
Loosened Ip aa Farmers.
Cuthbert Vincent of Omaha, manager of
the Farmers' Grain company, testified that
his company owned two elevators in Buf
falo county one at Pleasanton and une
at Millar. The stock In these elevators
was owned by about 100 farmers. The
company buys grain also at Callaway,
Lodl, Amherst and Oconto. At these lat
ter polnta they have shovel houses, hold
ing about 2,000 bushels each, though the
business at Amherst ceaaed during ihe
last year, because of leasing the shovel
houae to other parties. At the .outset tl.e
company had much trouble In getting
sites for its elevators and car facilities,
but it is all right now. The company
sets Its own price for grain and gets what
it can. The company began business lsst
October and the result liaa been to In
crease the price of grain in these locali
ties 2V4 cents per bushel above what It
was prior to the establiahment of the
company. J. E. Johnson of Kearney, a
retired farmer, la prealdent of the coin-
pany. There are other farmer elevator
rompantea In the atate, all doing a good
business, and all at the outset had
trouble with the railroad companies re
garding altes and car facilities. A rule
of the company Is that if stockholders
sell to competing elevator at tha same
station they must pay a penalty of 1 cent
per bushel Into the treasury of the com
pany, which goea to keeping the ma
chinery greased for thern when they come
hack. Other farmer elevators are located
at Bee, Bladen, Goner, Vonak, Strausvttl
and Upland.
tirala gold la Omaha.
At present the fsrmers' elevator com
panies have no difficulty In finding a mar.
ket for their grain. In the early hlatory
of the company they did have trouble,
and the first two car ot grain that wltneea
company sold to the Omaha Grain exchange
he had to let go at I cents less than Us
value. But the exchange is treating th
' coivpany fairly now. Most cf their grain

At our terminal elevators all switching

do not recognise shovel houses as fair com

track shovelmen, but do not hesitste to
buy from farmers' elevators, though I
think that the farmers' elevators are in
some instances unfair competitors. The al
lowance of 14 cents to us by the r'ai'roads,
particularly by the Union Pacific, does not
give us any advantage over other dealers.

The witness was a member of the Iowa
Grain Dealers' association, but Its pur
pose was not to raise or control prices, but
to improve the grain growing conditions of
the slate, wherein it had already accom
plished much good. Continuing Mr. Cow
gill said:
"I was a party to the suit brought
against the Nebraska Grain Dealers' asso
ciation. The suit waa brought against the
association on the ground that It was an
unlawful combination. I do not know that
the suit has been dismissed and believe It
to be still pending." ,
Elevator Sit Denied.
M. Andreas of Manley, Neb., testified
that he was a member of the Manley Co
operative association. "Manley," he ra.d,
la on the Missouri Paclflo. We have had a
hard experience with the railroad. We
couid not get an elevator site on the right-of-way
of the railroad company, and ob
tained a site adjacent thereto and built
our elevator. We have not yet been able
to get a siding or track to the elevator.
We have brought suit under the state laws
and the hearing- was had Tuesday, but I do
not know the result as yet. We have to
haul our grain to the cars and scoop-shovel
It Into the cars. We do not get our fair
hare of the cars sent out there."
G. C. Thompson, in the grain commis
sion business at Omaha, was the last wit
ness of the afternoon. , He understood an
Irregular dealer to be one connected with
an association that had a penalty clause
attached to Its agreements. He described
an unfair dealer aa one who goes around
among the farmers, buys grain and scoop
It directly Into the car. A a dealer the
wltneea waa glad to buy grain from any
one who had an elevator. The witness had
In the past trouble with the Nebraska
Grain Dealers' association, - but he now
understands that the association has dis
solved and gone out of bunt news.
The hearing then adjourned until 10
o'clock this morning.

LOS ANQt-LES. Oct 24.-The foacl&l
grand Jury today resumed the Investiga

company is guilty of granting rebates on
freight charges to certain Los Angtles

surttid that the Southern Pacific and possi

Into the investigation.
Commissioners Hint that Chleaaro Man
Has tlterlor Motives.
"The Interstate Commerce commission Is
vacillating and Incompetent. The new rate
law as thus far construed and applied la a
railroad law. Railway tramc men and their
lawyers have unscrupulously resorted to
every conceivable technicality to prevent
the jaw from proving of advantage to ship
pers and the public, for whose benetlt it
was passed, and the commission thus far
has proved utterly Incapable of heading
them off. The only, concerns that have
profited thua far by the rate legislation
are the railroads, and I fear they are the
only onea who will prop; cy It, at least for
years to come."
The foregoing sentiments were expressed
yesterday ly the traffic manager of one of
the largest manufacturing and shipping
concerns in Chicago. The speaker is a
prominent member of the Illinois Manufac
turers' association and tiie American Ship
pers' association, and waa In the delegation
of Chicago shipper which appeared before
the Interstate Commerce commission st
Washington the day the new rate law went
Into effect to present to that bodv the Ideas
of the shipping Interests regarding the in
terpretation the commission should put
upon disputed sections of the new law.
He declared his views are shared by many
other large local ahlppera.
This Is from the Chicago Tribune of Mon
day. It Is the Introduction of a longer
Interview. . The entire story was shown to
Commissioners Lane and Clark In Omaha
Wednesday morning. Mr. Ine said:
"Tbe whole matter is so grossly" absurd
that It does not merit an answer. The
writer evidently did not understand his
subject. Since It does not contain facta
I do not care to enter Into a detailed dis
cussion of the matter." . .
"Commissioner Clark waa more extended
In his expressions, thougli he coincided
with Mr. Lane in pronouncing the atate-
I menta false.
In the course of the Tribune s Interview
story It says:
The oommlRHtnn, Instead of taking the
bull by the horns and prohibiting the ronda
from charging a 'through rate higher than
tiie sums of the lochia, haa ruled that un
til Iecemler- tl they may reduce the
through rate to the umi of the locals on
one day s notice if they choose. This is
taken to Indicate that after that date the
published through rata will prevail. If
that la true it means a permanent raise in
the average freight rate all ovt- the '.'nlted
Stales, which lll add million annually to
railway revenue.
"This,'' said Mr. Clark, "Is totally wrong.
"As a matter of fact we have not made any
rat final yet. We hav asked the rail
roads to Join us In providing the lowest
uniform rate commensurate with a fair
profit for transportation and until we have
definite responses to our inquiries or re
quests and hav made a complete canvass
ot the situation we shsll not know just ex
actly wl at rate will go into effect. We are
aiming st uniformity at all events. We
have certainly not made the ruling as at
tributed to us In thla Interview, that until
December 1 they may reduce the through
rate to the sums of the locals on one day'a
notice If they chooar. That much Is
strictly incorrect. To get down to bed
rock what the com mission uaa done and
la doing 1 largely n the way of experi
ment aitd Investigation la our general eo-
deavor to sift out and arrive at the best
possible basis of operation."
The Commissioners both professed to
know exactly who it was making these as
sertions and what his motives were.
