Omaha. Kansas City, 8f. Joseph and
Sioux City want the Mississippi river
rubbed pff the map a a basing point for
Denver brought a case before the In
terstate Commerce commission and the
decision which, followed rubbed the Mis
souri river oft the map as a basing point
for freig'ht rates.
Now Denver wants the Missouri river to
stay where it Is and rates to break on the
river, but also wants a line drawn from
Pike's Peak to Denver and the nttes to
break on this line.
When Salt Lake City heard what other
cities wanted, the t'tah shippers filed a
petition asking that the rates from Omaha
snd Kansas City be cut from $2.0 to $1.77,
or equal to St per cent of the rale from
Missouri river to Sacramento. v
The 'Missouri river case" Is in the
supreme court; the Denver case eliminating
the Missouri river has reached a point
where the shippers of Colorado don't want
to take their own medicine, no action has
been taken as to making Denver or Its
Pike's Peak air line a basing point; the
petition of the Utah shippers, with a full
history of Utah and the Mormon church.
Is before the Interstate Commerce commis
sion. omethles for Mew Harass.
This la the kind of a-Jumble which the
traffic bureau of the Omaha Commercial
club faces upon Its organisation, which wit
completed when the approval of the execu
tive committee of the Commercial club was
The active manager whom the traffic
bureau will secure will ln all probability be
E. J. MoVann, present secretary of the
Omaha Oraln exchange.
The Interstate Commerce commission
seems to be having as 111 success satisfying
rival commercial centers aa the railways
always had, according to Omaha shippers
who look over the field with the hope that
the new traffic bureau will be enabled to
straighten things out.
Though Denver has been ln the market
for years for lower freight rates, the pres
ent complications had their beginning ap
parently when a Kansas City dry goods
firm, Burnham-Hanna-Munger, with one of
their traffic experts, stsrted In to get a
rate from New York City to Kansas City
only 6 cents higher than the rate to St.
Paul and Minneapolis. In other words, the
Kansas Cityans wanted the rates to the
Missouri river only about 6 cents higher
than the rates to the Mississippi ' river
from New York City and eastern points,
Mlnaearl Shippers Jassp Ia.
Omsha, St. Joseph snd other Missouri
river cities joined Kansas City. John I
Webster was the attorney for the Omaha
wholesalers and worked with able attorneys
from Kansas City.
The complainants argued thst the basing
line at the Mississippi river should be dis
regarded or abolished, but one of the com
plalnants' expert wltneaaes testified that
he did not think similar action should be
taken with relation to the basing line on
the Missouri river crossings.
The Interstate Commerce Commission
held that while they were not Impressed
with the view that the system of making
rates on certain basing lines should be
abolished, thst It must not be assumed
that a basing line for rates may be ea-
tafcllshed anf made an impassable barrier
for through rates.
Accordingly the commission ordered a re
duction of the rates from New Tork to
Missouri river points of cents per hun
dred pounds on first diss freight and It li
a through rate, disregarding the Missis
Denver got wise to this and secured a
through rate from Chicago, disregarding
the Missouri river, of S1.S0 against $2.08.
Then something happened. The Colorado
Manufacturers' association got to thinking
about the situation and aant this telegram
to Chulrman Knapp of the Interstate Com
"The principle laid Cuwn In the Burnham-Hanna-Munger
case (Missouri river ese)
and the Denver case. Is destructive to new
recognised Jobbing centers."
And Denver asked that the tl.SO rate be
not put In to replace the $3.06 rate May L
as ordered by the Commission.
The railroad have given noUce that they
will fight the Denver case regardless of
how the courts hold In the Missouri river
Denver has since made It known that the
buslneas organisations of that city want
the rates to "break" at the Missouri river,
but they also want Denver made a basing
point for territory west, which would maks
It poaslble for Denver to ship to Colorado
points and the territory West at the same
iste aa Omaha and Kansss City, which
Denver cannot do at present. '
What the shippers of Omaha will do Is
a matter of conjecture. There Is nothing
to do In the Missouri river case apparently
but wait for the decision of the supreme
court. Denver Is doing all that It is possi
ble to do to keep the rate aecured from
going Into effect, and Salt Lake City Is
In the ring stirring things up as much
as possible with aj eye to becoming an
other basing point.
Some shipper are opposed to the princi
ple laid down in the Missouri river esse,
but by far the largcat number in Omaha
are supporting .

Complaint from strangers visiting
Omaha that the city does not have signs
telling the name and number of streets,

a number that the club has referred the
matter to a municipal affairs commit

not maintain such signs.
Besides complaining that no aigna are
