Tho State Railroad . commission today
made on order in tho long pending switch
ing case, reducing switching ohurKcfl In
tho principal cities ot the stnto and set
ting a precedent. A statement from tho
commission 1h as follows:
"At the present time the prevailing in
dustrial switching chnrgo Is 1 cent per 100
pounds, with a minimum of 00,000 pounds,
or $5 a car. Tho commlnnlon has ordered
these charges to bo reduced to cent
per 100 pounds, making a reduction ot 23
per oont on this rato at those cities which
aro complainants In UiIb case. The com
mission has ulso reduced tho minimum
for all hauls loss than three miles In
length from $5 to $4 a cor. For hauls over
three miles In length tho minimum Is
$5 to fl a car. For hauls over three miles
In length the minimum is $5 a oar as
before. No order Ib made as to connect
ing lino switching. Tho carriers are most
vitally concerned in this. This teprcsents
the cbargo ono carrier makes ot another
and these charges aro almont Invariably
absorbed In the regular frchjht charged
between points. Consequently, thoso, who
are really concerned In this charge nro
the carriers and thcro are no curriors be
foro tho commission complaining about
this rate. (
This decision of tho board, as tho
opinion states, grows out of a pctitloh
brought by the State Manufacturers' as
sociation, through Its secretary, O, A,
Wrightman. The action Is brought under
the law passed by.tho lust scsslop of tro
state legislature "granting authority to
the commission to dcflna an Industrial
vicinity and to establish switching
rates. Similar orders aro made In two
other casos pending before the com
mission, ono being brought by tbo Clin
ton Shippers' and Manufacturers' asso
ciation and the other by the Cedar Rapids
Commercial olub. .
These cases were submitted July 10, 1912,
The commission lias conducted quite an
extended Investlatlon of switching rates
In Iowa and neighboring states at the
present time through the tariff files In
the offices of the commission: also Vor
several years past through the flies of
the carriers at Chicago, and of tlia In
terstate Commerce commission at Wash
ington. Once before, in 18M, the commis
sion attempted to order an Industrial
switching rate and was reversed by thu
supreme court. Three years ago tho Illi
nois commission attempted to prescribe
industrial switching charges and was en
joined by the federal court at Chicago.
