WASHINGTON. Nov. 1. Dismissing a
complaint filed by the Omaha .Grain ex
change against the Chicago & Northwestern
railroad, alleging unreasonable rates from
parts of South akota, Minnesota and
Iowa to Omaha as compared with rates
from the same points to other markets, the
Interstate Commerce commission announced
that competitive conditions do not affect
Omaha as they do Minneapolis.
The Omaha grain dealers complain they
are not able to get a fair share of the grain
originating In Houth Dakota between th
Missouri river and the Minnesota state 11ns,
points In southwestern Minnesota and
northwestern Iowa. They desire to have
the k rail i shipped to Omaha, not particu
larly for milling or consumption, but for
reshlpment east and south. ,
The- rf Uroads claim that the combination
of ratea which make up the through rates
to the south and southeast are substanti
ally in favor of Omaha as compared with
Minneapolis, where the distance Is the
same and, In territory nearer to Omaha,
differentials in favor of Omaha substntlally
the same as those In favor of Minneapolis,
where the distance la leas to Minneapolis.
The comthieslon says the rates to Minne
apolis are strongly Influenced or controlled
by competitive conditions which do not
likewise affect Omaha rates and that the
Minneapolis milling Interest demands and
the IntereHts of the Minneapolis lines whlcl
do not reuch Oa.aha, create substantially
