Deficit of go 1, for Cedar Rapids

(From n Staff Correspondent.)
DE8 MOINES, Ia Nov. 29. (Special Tel-
firam.l-J urine McPherson In the federal
court today Issued an order restraining tho
Cedar Rapids ft Iowa City Interurban rail
road from complying with the Iowa law
fixing railroad rates at 2 cents a mils.
The writ is returnable December IB, when
a hearing will be had on the constitutional
ity of the Iowa law. The suit was brought
by Elizabeth McCllntock of Pennsylvania,
a stockholder of the company, who says
she asked the company to charge more
than 2 cents a mile and the company re
fused, and that unless It does charge more
than that It will lose money and thus de
prive her of profits which she ought to
have. , She shows that the deficit of the
company last year was about 151,000 and
this year It will be 143.000. She makes the
railroad commission, the attorney general
and all officials who have to do with the
enforcement of the law parties to tha
suit. The case is intended to bring to a
test before Judge McPherson the entire
statute of Iowa regarding the 2-cent fare
and to ..ave It declared unconstitutional
because It Is confiscatory.

Discrimination Una Been Common.
The Stat Railroad commission has Just
closed one complaint case that has been
hanging flresome time and which indicate
much the nature of various complalntH that
are brought to the attention of the board.
This was a complaint on the part of the
National Petioleimr association to the ef
fect that the Burlington and the Rock
Island railroads refused to accept for
transportath n oil products in less than car
load lots on more than one day a week
at Keokuk, Dubuque and Clinton. Now
the Burlington bun agreed to accept such
shipments any day. The matter of greatest
Importance was the fact that this disci lm
inailon has been common in Iowa. It is
explained that the Oil trust, having large
distributing houses well scattered about,
does nearly all business in car-load lota,
while the Independents are compelled to
handle a large amount of the business In
sm .11 lots. Now, the Burlington at leust,
promises to and tha discrimination.
