CHICAGO, Sept. 5. At a conference here
today of the legal representatives of rail
roads operating between Chicago and the
Missouri river, a decision was reached to
contest the decision of the Interstate Com
merce commission In the famous Missouri
river rate case. Exception 1 taken to the
commission's order that a reduction of 9
cent per hundred pounds be made in the
through rates from the Atlantio coast to
the Missouri river. The rates are to go
Into effect September 15.
If necessary it is said the. roads will
apply for an Injunction agulnst. the com
mission. A rehearing of the case 1 to be
asked by the Santa Fe, the Illinois Central,
the Alton and the Wabash on the ground
that they have had no opportunity to
present their side of the controversy.
The original defendants are the Rock
Island, the St. Paul, the Burlington, the
Northwestern and the Great Western roads.
The kernel of the commission's decision
wa the adoption of the principle that tho
through rate must be brought below the
sum of the local rates at the Mississippi
and Missouri rivers. To do this the body
ordered the 9-cent reduction on Missouri
river through business. Chicago and St.
Louis Jobbers regarded the decision as of
vital Importance, Inasmuch aa they repre
sent that business west of the Missouri
river will be Irreparably Injured, because
of the disadvantage In rates as compared
with those made to Kansas City, Omaha
and other Missouri river cities.
