WASHINGTON, Jan. t The mum, but
not the cure, for the car shortage In the
northwest, and the consequent coal famine
In North Dakota, have been determined by
the members of the Interstate Commerce
commission participating In the recent
hearings at Chicago and Minneapolis.
Franklin K. Lane, who served as chair
man of the Investigating commission, to
day filed his report with the full commis
sion and sent It to President Roosevelt,
who ordered the Inquiry. He finds:
It Is a fair Inference from all the testi
mony that the real cause of the coal
ecsrcltv in North Dnkot was such an
abundance of westbound traffic at the heHd
of the lakes that cars were not available
In the congested state of the terminal for
the rarrvtng of coal to North Dakota, a
comparatively short haul for a low class
In his letter of transmission to the presi
dent Mr. Lane says the report will be fol
lowed In due course by the special recom
mendations of the commission as a whole
as to whatever legislation, If any, may be
Combine Not Responsible.
, Referring to the report that the con!
' shortage was due to the presence of a
trust or combination between dealers In
coal who fixed prices In the northwest,
and refused to sell to "outsiders" and "Ir
regulars," the report says:
The commission has gained Indisputable
firoof of an agreement between coal dealers
o maintain prices and to boycott all who
do not so agree, hut there Is no evidence
at all Justifying the contention that this
combination Is chargeable with the coal
shnrtnge prevailing nor that the railroads
were a party In such a way to such a
The report of the commissioner first deals
with the coal famine In North Dakota, and
presents the conditions of distress found
. to have existed In that state. The remedies
which the commission proposes to work
out Include a plan for a car clearing house
or car pool and reciprocal demurrage.
Financial loss to a large percentage of
the people of the northwest la shown to
have been caused by the failure of railroad
to prepare for a large movement of grain.
Mr. Lane shows that the railroads tapping
the great grain belt of the northwest seem
to have been overwhelmed by this year's
crop, although In fact the crop scarcely
exceeded that of 1906, nor did It equal that
of at least one other preceding year.
Reciprocal Demurrage Proposed.
In considering the evidence taken, Com
missioner Lane says that a plan for a pro
posed car clearing house or a car pool
between connecting lines is regarded with
much favor. The details of such a plan
have not been worked out. Car approprla
tion between carriers Is treated at some
length and the adoption of a rule Is sug
gested fixing a minimum of SO cents a day
during those months of the year when
t raffle is light and Increasing this possibly
four-fold during the latter halt of the year
when cars are most needed. The most
generally advocated remedy for the failure
of carriers to furnish cars when demanded
Is known aa the reciprocal car demurrage.
This phrase means In a word that carriers
hull be penalized on failure to furnish
cars demanded, and It arises out of the
universal railroad practice of Imposing a
per diem penalty when a car Is held by a
consignee for unloading beyond a certain
fixed number of days. The commissioner
cays this plan would not overcome th
transportation difficulties If the measure
merely provided for punishing the railroad
for nonplaclng . of cars or nonmovement
Real Canse May Lie Deep.
Mr. Lane In his report sums up the con
clusion of the commissioners In the fol
The problem Is one that Is much deeper
.and much broader than a mere lack of
cars and engines. It is one In which Is
Involved every factor In railroading, the
construction, operation, maintenance and
financing of the railroad. The Inability
of a shipper to secure a car may only be
a symptom of a deep-seated and organic
trouble. The real cause of the car short
age may He In the too conservative char
acter of the management of the npad, or
in the unfitness or Incompetency of It
operating officials. It may flow from an
Incomprehension on the part of the di
rectors of the full duty imposed by law
on a common carrier. It may arise out
of a policy In railroad operation which
gives primary consideration to specula
tive stock operations. It may coma from
an Inability to secure funds so to fit it
self that It can discharge its duty. It may
follow In a time of prosperity from an
Increase of traffic which could not have
reasonably been anticipated. It may hav-
arisen from Inability to secure labor or
materials necessary to the proper enlarg
ing of facilities. This enumeration of
cai ses Is not exhaustive. It obuld not
well be complete without giving consid
eration to many economic factors which
at first glance would appear remote and
unrelated. Clearly the problem of trans
portation la so closely Interwoven with
the fabric of our commercial system and
so closely related and so Interdependent
are the various activities of our Industrial
life that one may not lightly say what
are the multitudinous considerations
which necessarily enter Into so simple a
question as the reason why a railroad car
is not at once forthcoming when ordered.

BACK TO STATE FOR INDIAN
Gifts Rainbow Is Given Over to the
Nebraska Coorts by Jndge
A decision was received at the United
States circuit court Wednesday morning
dismissing the habeas corpus proceedings
against Charles Green Rainbow, a Winne
bago Indian, and remanding hlrh to the
custody of the state authorities.
The case grows out of an alleged assault
and arrest made by Charles Oreen Rain
bow on Thomas L. Sloan in forcibly eject
ing the latter from the vicinity of the
Winnebago agency house, where he had
gone to collect a bill of an Indian on one
of the lease payment days. A rule of the
Interior department prohibits collectors
from approaching within 100 yards of the
agency during the time payments of lease
money are being made to Indiana. Mr.
Sloan Is alleged to have violated the rule
by coming within the 100-yard limit and
was, upon the order of the agent, ejected
by being placed In a wagon by Rainbow
and two other Indian policemen and taken
without the 100-yard limit Mr. Sloan had
the policemen arrested for assault on a
complaint sworn out before the county
The government thereupon Immediately
secured the release of the policemen by
writ of habeas corpus on the ground that
they were In the legitimate discharge of
their duties. The case was heard before
Judge Trleber, while he was on the bench
In December, Mr. Sloan holding that the
Indian police were without authority and
that the ruling established by the Interior
department was without warrant or law:
In deciding the matter Judge Trleber,
who has returned to Arkansas, says:
"The regulations Invoked by the peti
tioners have been approved by the secre
tary of the Interior. There must must bo
an act of congress granting such author
ity, otherwise they are void and can af
ford no protection. This order Is made
without prejudice to the petitioners to
plead the same as a defense in the state
court if so advised."'
As a result of the decision Rainbow la
remanded to the custody of the state au
thorities. However, It is the Intention of
the government to appeal the case, because
of the Importance of the Issues Involved,
relative to the right of the Interior de
partment to enforce rules not specifically
provided for by act of congress.
COUNTY HAS GOOD BALANCE

There Is a balance of more than $100,000
