Nebraska Minimum on Flour
Raised to 28,000 Pounds
Lincoln, Neb, June 13. (Special.)
The Nebraska minimum rate on
flour of 24,000 pound carload lots has
been raised to 28,000 and 32,000 mixed
products. ' ,
Kansas City flour houses objected
to the 24,000 minimum in Nebraska,
claiming that it prohibited them from
sellitfg flour in this state and gave the
business all to, Nebraska flour mills. '
The Nebraska commission went to
Kansas City, and made a showing in
an effort to keep the old rate in ef
fect, but were unsuccessful, except
that they kept the Kansas City people
from getting all they contended for.

She said that two men, who were
dead before the petitions were cir

the fact that all names on one pagt
