LINCOLN. Aug. a- Special. -In th
case before the State Railway commission
wherein the On. aha Grain exchange charges
the Great Northern Railroad company with
discriminating against Omaha to the ad
vantage of Minneapolis and the northern
markcta by refusing to furnish csrs to
shippers long the line of the P'oux Falla
A Wilmar ralxad In which to chip grain
to Omaha. Attorney M. L. Learned for the
exchange showed by witnesses that th
Wilmar A Sioux Falls railroad is owned
and operated by the Great Northern: that
though Great Northern empty care were
on the aldctrarks. shippers were rot per
mitted to use them in shipping to Omaha,
though they could have them to ship to
Minnespolls: agents of the areat Northern
compelled shippers to wait for Burlington
cars If they dt sired to ahlp to Omaha;
that this kind of treatment caused a loaa
to the shippers, as the price In Omaha waa
from 1 to IS cents higher for grain than
in Minneapolis; thst the rate to Minne
spolls was 4V cents higher than to Omaha,
and that the grading of oats In Omaha was
easier than In Minneapolis. Omaha allow
ing taenty-three pounds for No. I white
snd Minnespolls twenty-six pounds for No.
S white; thst one party lost several hun
dred dollars because he waa roroed to
wait for Burlington cars, wnlch It usually
took him from five to ten days to get.
As a defense ths Grest Northern set up
that It did not operate the Wilmar A
Sioux Fall road; that thl road was a
separate corporation and therefore the com
plaint should be dismissed agalnrt the Great
Northern. Then lis sttorney. J. L. Ken
nedy of Sioux City, claimed snd attempted
to show ty witnesses thst it was a rule
of the Great Northern not to allow Its
equipment to leave Its own trscks. and
therefore it did not discriminate against
Omaha more than aa;aint any other city
not reached by It road-
Eatabllak Ownerskig. of Roads.
To establish ownership of the Wilmar A
gloax Falls road, in the. Great Northern, S.
J MoVann, secretary of the Omaha Grain
exchange, testified that he had aeen th re
port of the comptroller of th Great
Northern filed with the Interstate Com
merce commission and that report showed
that practically all of the stock of tb
VUrr.sr A Sioux Fall road was owned
by the Grest Northern and the same gen
eral officers conducted the affairs of both
roads. Other witnesses testified thst
trstnmen of the Wilmar A Sioux rails
roal wore caps and uniforms stamped
"Gnatt Northern;" that ths depot superin
tend. st 61oux City in calling trains re
ferred" to tie Grest Northern for Nebraska
points. The psss list fumlahed by the
Great northern waa Introduced to, show
that the general officers issued passes
over the Wilmar A Sioux Fall road.

he said, would bring him from 1 to 1H cents
more a bust el thsn in the northern mar
ket and the freight rate north was H
cents higher. .
Lou's E. Mann of Osmon testified to tha
same aa did W. S. Hart of Allen.
C K. Spena. freight sgent of the Bur
lington, and O, L. Dickson, aaaistant
freight agent, testified it had been a rule
of the Great Northern to keep It trains
and equipment on Vs own tracks, but both
denied they ever hsd any correspond
