PLAN TO RELIEVE
, THE CARSHORTAGE
Increase in Demurrage Charges
" ' Would Help, Aver Omaha
' Railroad Officials. .
COAL MEN HOLD THE CAES
: ' While local railroad official are not
expressing au,thoritt"tive opinions on
the suggestion ol the American Rail
'. way association to relieve the freight
v car shortage by raising the per diem
'demurrage charges up to s high as
?5 per day. per, car., ther have no
' hesitancy, in asserting, that such !a
. plan would help. " r1 "' ';'
j Ralroad officials de'clarethat while
; the gtea volume of freight business
that is moving has much to do' with
the present car shortage, the holding
up of cars by consignees is the most
serious problem that confronts them
at this time.
Under the demurrage rules now
applied the per diem charges range
from 4S cents to $1.45 for each twen-ty-four
hours. 1 Many of the con-,
f signees of freight find it much cheap
, er to hold cars and py the demur
rage than to provide warehouse and
; storage facilities. . This is especially
true in the coa! business, say the
j railroad men.' Under the present sys
' tern a car of coal reaches Omaha and
if it is not unloaded inside of forty-
. eight ; hours, the demurrage com
mences to run at the rate c $1 for
. each twentv-four hours after the.free
' time has expired. The coal dealer
can leave tne coal on tne car ana un
' load it at his pleasure and by paying
, $1 per day, save the expense of one
handling, that of from the car to the
bin. This one handling, it is said is
a saving of $10 to $20 on each car,
, . besides the loss that resnlts from
shrinkage in the handling from the
car to the bin. S
' Also True of Grain.
What is true with coal, railroad
.. men say, is also true with grain, but
- not to so great aa extent. It is con
s' tended that under the present rule, it
i is cheaper to let grain remain in cars
t on the track and then let it proceed
. to its destination when sold than to
'' run it through the elevator apd later
o reload for shipment to theultimate
market. The demurrage will run dur
jng the time the grain is held in the
; car but even .then it is less expensive
- to pay this than the elevation and re
.; loading charges. - -
However, with the demurrage
' charges pushed up as high as $5 per
day, the expense would be so great
' that there would be a desire to un-
load cars as soon as possible, which
would permit immediately "sending
a the cars back into .the shipping tec
s ritory to again be1 quickly loaded with
commodities for the market
