Deny Authority of State Sail-
way Commission and De
mand Other Tribunal.
The controversy at Lincoln over
Nebraska freight rates before the Ne
braska state railway commission, in
which the representatives of the rail
roads threaten to go before the fed-
erla court and ask a restraining order
to prevent the commission from in
terfering with the present rates,
again brings to the front the order
No. 19.
Order No. 19 was promulgated by
iu- Nebraska state railway commis
;mi Septembtr t. 1914. The Ne
Vr.sla railroads fought its enforce
' t : ''croit .I'C commission, and los
'; '' '' mention, appealed to
ifi-,Miv commerce commission tr: :!.ai tribunal's decision, won
i Vto-r some thirty days ago. Now
the railroads ask that rates existing
irior c t'c issuance of No. 19 be
promulga;ed by the state railway
commission and left standing without
interference. The commission pro
tests against mis move.
It is on this protest and to pre
vent further interference with the
rates that the railroads seek a tem
porary restraining order until the
case can be heard on its merits be
fore another tribunal and not before
the state railway commission, which
the railroads allege is without juris
diction in the matter.
River Broek Ratei.
For years prior to the promulga
lion of order No. 19 by the Nebraska
state railway commission the rail
roads had in effect freight rates that
broke on the Missouri river. Ship
ments going beyond and into Ne
braska took the local rate from the
river. The through rate to the Mis
sissippi river, another freight rate
breaking point, was a certain propor-.
tion of the throurh rates from point
of origin, while the rate from the
Mississippi to the Missouri was an
other proportion of this through
rate. From the Missouri river out
into the state the local rate ruled.
The Nebraska state commission
came along with order No. 19, and
while it could not interfere with the
rate from the east to the Missouri
river, it destroyed the combination
rate out into the state. As r.n illus
tration, the rate into Grand Island
is taken and the charges on fourth
and fifth class freight given, as these
are the classifications under which
most of the merchandise is billed.
How Rate Worked.
Under the old methods that had
been effective for years, with the
Missouri river as the rate-breaking
line, fourth class freight from the
Missouri river sent to Grand Island
carried a charge of 57 cents per 100
pounds, and fifth class, 48 cents.
This included the through charge
and the local from the river to desti
nation. ,
Fourth class freight from the Mis
sissippi river to the Missouri tnok
rate of 27 cents, and fifth class, 22
cents, but order No. 19 broke up

Order Kurt Omaha.
The operation of order No. 19 was
fought from its inception by both the
jobbers on the west side of the Mis-
?ouri rivfr and b? t,lc r'lrads l'"v-
west side of the stream. Their con
tention was that it discriminated
against jobbing centers on the east
hank of the river and did not permit
such points) as Sioux City, Council
Bluffs and other places similarly lo
cated to compete for the Nebraska
Omaha jobbers fought the order,
contending that it destroyed the busi
ness they bad taken years to builn
up and enabled the building up of
small distributing houses at every
junction town in the' state. As one
;obbcr put it:
It turns the jobbing trade into a
mail order business. If the order
stood it would force us to put in
branches at a dozen points in the
state. At each of these we would
have to have a man who would take I
orders for goods and then send these I
orders to the nearest warehouse and j
from there have them sent to their
destination, instead of concentrating
our business at one point and from
there sending our shipments to the
hundreds of cities and towns in the i
state." I
Unjust Discrimination.
It is contcndetl that the enforce-1
inent of order No. 19 would destroy
Omaha as a jobbing as well as a
financial center, and in a fcA- years
leave the state without a metropoli
tan city within ir limits. j
The greatest objection to order
No. 19 and one upon which the inter
state commerce commission based its
finding was that in its promulgation
The Easiest Way
To End Dandruff
There is one sure wav that never
fails to remove dandruff comnlr-tely
and that is to dissolve it. This de
stroys it entirely. To do this, just get
about four ounces of plain, ordinary
liquid arvon; apply it at night w'ien
retiring; use enough to moisten the
scalp and rub it in gently with the
finger tips.
By morning, most if not all of your
dandruff will be gone, and three or
four more applications will complete
ly dissolve and entirely destroy every
single sign and trace of it, no matter
how much dandruff you may have.
You will find, too, that aH itching
and digging of the scalp will stop in
stantly, and your hair will be fluffy,
lustrous, glossy, silky and soft, and
look and feel a hundred times better.
You can get liquid arvon at any
drug store. It is inexpensive, and four
ounces is all you will need. This sim
ple remedy has never been known to
fail. Advertisement.
