Wall .,Tt eight traffic men and rail
road, attorneys of the city hold wide
Jlvekgpnoa of oplnlona concerning the suc
uss of the new plan aa announced by the
Interstate ) Commerce commleslon. Admit
ting that the western railroads would lose
money as fumpared with their tormer
larnins, they dtrc.artd that In regard to
its benefiting C . J-bblng- world of the
wrat was,, uMiaTy robbing PiUr to pay
1'utit otj tlia j.ihb; is and tiiat the consumer
would utji btiV'tt any, but would pay
tho name pi !(- ti formerly. Omaha
I iblM-iu may be bi nef.led.
"TIimTisw; sr-liedule of tariff baed on
!'-:c diVWion'of the country Into five tones
will bint'Ilt many towns In the Intermoun
tuln territory, btft It Will in the same pro
portion injure other firms of other cities
ir the Kuril It coast and of the west," de-Inr.d-
Kdson inch, general attorney of
ihe V'nluir pacific, who Is conversant with
:be frt;ht rate can-s.
"KrelHh rates have in the past been built
up aff the. Jobbing interests of the lare
cities and the needs of territories have
dictated,'' lie said. "New York had tbe
first rates to' tne west, lower than Other
cities, and then Philadelphia demanded
similar ratea for a certain territory s
that New York would not have all the
trade. , When . Baltimore demanded rates
New .York and Philadelphia fought that
city, but Baltimore got them. When Chl
uagu asked for tin ni they declared Chi
cago waa robbing them, but later Chicago,
St. Louis and then Missouri river points
and Denver and other western cities ob
tained them. And the back haul rate has
been charged as a means of dividing up
i he Jobbing territory fairly.
. Will Hart Coaat Joabera. .
'ihe new. division will hurt San Fran
cisco's trade, as Keno will be able to get
K'oods on the direct rate charge. The rail
roads will lose money, but It will prob
ably be years before a satisfactory system
of freifrht- rate tariffs is devised. It Is
impossible to tell what action the railroads
will take, .as we have not even seen the
decision yet, and It is really a matter for
the', freight department."
Conrad E. Epens, general freight agent
of the. Burlington lines west of the Mis
souri, declared that the doing away with
the ' "back haul" and the revision of the
rates of "long and short" haul tariffs
would mean the loss of money to the rail
roads of the west, as it would mean re
duced rates to many intermediate points.
None, of the Omaha freight men was able
to state or even guess what division of
the five tones of freight rates Omaha
would come under the new ruling, except
that It would undoubtedly be in the first
or second division. The ruling will prob
ably not mean that Omaha will have any
different rates on goods shipped in here,
but on goods shipped to Intermountaln terri
tory from Omaha Jobbing houses it will
undoubtedly mean trade brought to this
city froVn some places. Chicago and other
points ot the midwest may be In the same
division of Omaha, when the rate will be
on the same basis.
