(Prom a Staff Correspondent)
LINCOLN, Oct. 10.-(Sieclil.)-Thc
railroads were not prepurea to discuss
the prposed freight ratet. prepared by
the railway commission when the dis
cussion which has been on for the last
two days before tho railway commission
on the proposed orer No. 19, closed on the
part of the jobbers.
Mr. Rich of the Union pacific did not
think his road could be ready for thirty
days and might need slxtyffor some parts
of the argument which It desired to
Byron Clark for the Burlington thought
that his road would bo ready very soon
and suggested that the hearing be post
poned for ten days and then tako up
such matters as were ready, Ife thought
It would be a good Idea for the exports
of both the commission and the different
railroads to get togother and consnlt
about tho proposed rates and thus bo
in better shape to discuss them when
the hearing was resumed. This seemed to
strike E. P. Holmes of tho Rock Island
and A. A. McLaughlin of tho North
western as & good thing and they acqul-
e3ce& in the plan.
Chairman Clarko of the commission
thought the commission was not favor
able to any sabeme which would tend to
shift the burden of proof from the rail
roads onto the shoulders of the com
mission. Mr. McLaughlin thought It Would be a
fine Idea to let the railway commission
make Us decision and then let the roads
discuss the matter afterwards. Speaking
from a personal view cf the matter, he
did not think that his road would bej in
favor of any chango In rates which would
tear down ono lobbing center for the pur
pose of building up another.
Tho great bulk of the discussion during
the two days had been from the Jobbers'
standpoint as against the proposed order
No. 19 of tho commission changing the
present rates, but during the closing mln
Utea of tho hearing those who favored
the change as proposed by the commls
ilon had their say.
Crawford In Heard.
A representative from tho town of Craw
ford said that tho change would bo a
good, thing for their town, enlarging' Jho
scope of territory, especially on shipments
from the west. Representatives from
Kali-bury endorsed the plan of tho com
mission, saying that it , would benefit
them. Falrbury is a preferential point In
the commission's order, but does not now
receivo any concessions from the rail
roads. Jr,E. Powers of Lincoln, representing a
paint, and wall paper concern, -said the
Jobbers of Nebraska ought to be ashamed
of themselves .to )et a Sioux CJty man
come to their defense. He urged the com
mission to remomberihat It waa In ex
istence to look out for the rights of the
people, as well as the rights of the rail
roads and Jobbers. He said that one-third
tf the men at the hearing represented the
railroads B,nd more than that number rep
resented tho big Jobbers from Omaha, and
Lincoln and other Jobbing centers. He
said the small Jobber and consumer were
not represented at all.
Mr. McVann tried to question the Lin
coln man but he refused to, stand for it,
saying that he paid more for a car of
freight from Lincoln to Holdrege than
be paid from Chicago to Lincoln.
W. 8. Whltten of the Lincoln Com
mercial club desired It understood that
Lincoln did not propose to oppose a re
duction in freight rates. "Wo want
merely to be allowed to keep the terri
tory we have developed," said he, "and
be kept on a parity with other Jobbing
centers of the stato where such privileged
are now enjoyed. Under the proposed
rates Lincoln Jobbers will be cut out of
rich territory In Northwestern Nebraska
unless the Jobbers absorb the difference
In rates and charge it up against profits."
In closing the hearing Chairman
Clarke of the commission stated' thut
In advocating the proposed distance
tariff the commission was desirous of
escaping possible legal complications as
to Its authority.
No time has beep set by the commis
sion for taking up the hearing In the
future, having the same under consld.
