It wa expected that the representatives of the railroads would have a chance to present their claims yesterday, but the Jobbers were on the stand all the afternoon and were still arguing this morning when the hearing waa again taken up. H. J. McVann of the traffic department of the Omaha Commercial club talked on the attitude of Omaha on the proposed rate as prepared by the commission, ire said Omaha did not have any advantage over other distributing towns, but was on a parity with them. Ho was of the opinion that the proposed maximum class rates would In effect also be minimum rates because the roads would not accept 23 per cent reduction and then adjust their rates lower. He thought that the best way was for the commission to drop Its plan and readjust rates in individual cases wherever It Is needed. He did not Uilnk this -would be such a big under taking as many supposed. Ponttlon of Jobbers. Mr. Vann thought that the commis sion's distance rates would require changes In Interstate rates and it would causa a hardship to Jobbers all over the state to adjust their business to the new schedule If It was enforced. He thought that the distance rates would work a hardship on consumers and mer chants. Merchants on cross-country roads. In his opinion, would have dif ferent rates because of the different length of roads and the trade would go to the towns which had th oadvantage. , Under the present rates, he said that the towns have the choice of several markets. With the proposed rates the state would be divided Into zones and Jobbers would be restricted to their own In his contention Mr. Vann was sec onded by Secretary TVhltten of the Lin coln Commercial club," who believed that the proposed rate would eliminate Lin coln Jobbers from the territory on the Northwestern north of Fremont and the Union raclflc territory of Central City.

"We areendeavorlng to .i,rielp the consumer," said Mr. Clarke this ' morning, "and we are tryiiyj to estab . llsh a rate which will enable) htm to get his stuff at a little less than he Is pay ing now." C. H. Kelsey of Norfolk was in the limelight most of the time this forenoon In opposition to a flat distance tariff and defended the right of Jobbing centers to make lower rates than those in effect In other places. Norfolk' Attttnde. Mr. Kelsey thought that Norfolk was entitled to an advantage in rates over the smaller towns In that locality, but the town would be satisfied to be put on an equality with Lincoln and Omaha and some other Jobbing centers. He said that at the present Jobbing rates Omaha and Lincoln can ship to Norfolk terri tory at slightly lower rates than the Nor folk merchants could do. Mr. Kelsey thought that Norfolk should be allowed to go eust as far as Wayne and south to WUner on an equal, basis as Omaha or Lincoln or even Sioux City. commissioner Hall asked Mr. Kelsey lr he thrught the rates proposed In or der No. 19, the distance tariff schedule, would work an injury to other Jobbing centers In favor of Lincoln and Omaha, and the latter replied that he had sup posed it would.

"I think that there should be a, specific schedule of Jobbing rates,' said he. "I understand that the commission wants to reduce rates 15 or SO per cent, if that is the case I believe the present relative adjustment should be preserved as far as possible. We are not able to do awav with all discriminations. Mr. Kelsey was freauentlv naked hum Hons by Commissioners Clarke.
