GRAIN AND FLOUR
RATE AS EXAMPLE
Railroads Use Northwestern Situ
ation as Argument Against
By W. W. Jermane.
Washington, May 15.The
witnesses oefore the senate committee
on the shippers' side of the railroad
controversy, have declared that it is
not their de&ire that the government
be clothed with the general rate-mak
ing power. They want the railroads
to be as free as now to make rates
and to change them, whenever trade
conditions demand change but they
ask that the government be authorized
to step in, when complaint has been
made that a jerta rate is unjust, and,
after hearing all sides, decide as to the
rate in question, and. if proper, order
This is the position taken by E.
representing the shippers. I
is th position taken by Governor
Cummins of Iowa. I is the position
of the president himself.
The railroads assert in reply that
over a part of the question legally
involves power over the Vwhole, and
that while the shippers mentioned are
honest in disclaiming any thought of
having the government exercise a gen
eial rate-making power, legislation
such as is proposed would "give it .lust
that power, and result in an effort by
the government to control the eco
nomics of'trade and commerce by stat
ute, inevitably dragging the industries
of the country into politics.
Example from Minneapolis.
They cite a concrete case, brought
out in Mr. Bacon's testimony last
week. He explained at great length
the troubles in the northwest between
the big millers of Minneapolis, and the
spring wheat growers, over the policy
of the railroads tQ give lower rates on
wheat for export than on flour. The
result has been to curtail the export
trade in flour, and to that extent to
reduce the earnings of the big mills
and affect the pay of mill employees.
Mr. Bacon admitted, however, that
this policy, while affecting the mill
ers unfavorably, have worked decidedly
to the advantage of the grain growers,
who were as a Tesult, able to secure a
laiger price for wheat than under the
old conditions, when they had no mar
ket other than that afforded by the
Mr. Bacon admitted, on crossexam
ination, that if the railroads were to
change their policy and give wheat no
haimful preference over flour in the
export trade, the flour exports would
undoubtedly increase and the wheat
exports decrease, giving larger profits
to the millers, while the wheat grow
ers would find their profits diminish
Prophesy by Railroads.
This situation suggests to the rail
roads what would happen if this ques
tion of adjusting rates between the
millers and the gram growers were
turned over to the government.
At present the party claiming to be
injured has his appeal to the railroad
company, and if that appeal is not
heeded, there is no redress. But if the
power to give redress is lodged in the
government, how, they argue, could
any satisfactory adjustment be
reached between the conflicting millers
and the farmers, without dragging the
entire question into politics? And if
it should be dragged into politics,
would not the result be as disastrous
as it has been in term$.ny and France
for the past quarter of a century?
The millers would bring data showing
their annual loss under the discrimin
ation, their laborers would side with
them, and there would be a disposition
to hold the political party in power
responsible if no change were made.
Similarly, the farmers would insist up
on their rights to the preference they
were enjoying, and would likewise
visit upoij the head of the party in
power their displeasure.
The Situation in Germany.
This is precisely the situation in Ger
many, and it explains why, in that
country^ the government has found it
inexpedient to become a party to rate
contests between localities. The result,
it is asserted by the railroad men, has
been in that country an inelastic sys
tem of rates, the paralysis of the gov
ernment arm, thru fear of political con
sequences, and a condition of commerce
much worse than that which the present
laws sought to correct.
As a further hint of the way politics
might be made to figure under a sys-
tem of government ratenraking, another
illustration, taken from Germany, is per
tinent: I 1894, the German govern
ment endeavored to correct rate in
equalities by giving a^ lower rate on
grain from eastern Germany to the west
ern sections of the country. The new
rate incensed the western German grain
growers, who claimed that their near
ness to the point of consumption en
titled them to demand the continuation
of the old preferential rate, but for
several years they had no redress. Ee
cently, however, the German emperor
became interested in a great reciprocity
treaty with Bussia, and this treaty was
brought up in the national legislative
body, where it was stoutly opposed by
members from the western German
states, who were strong enough to pre
vent ratification. They made it plain
that they would prevent ratification un
less the objectionable rate on gram were
repealed, and the government was com
pelled to yield and put the rate back
to the old discriminatory figure. Then
the Eussian treaty was ratified.
Bate Regulation Evils.
The question in this country is
whether the ills it now has are greater
or less than those which rate-regulation
by the government might bring, and to
the answer to that question the presi
dent and his cabinet and other thought
ful men are now directing their serious
attention. The senate committee on in
terstate commerce would serve the rail
ways to much better purpose if t vrould
admit that there are two sides to the
controversy, and incline itself to a tair
treatment of all the witnesses.
Whether rate-regulation to the extent
which the president, Governor Cummins
and Mr. Bacon demand would in. the
end inevitably mean conferring on the
government the general, ratemakinff
power, cannot be determined offhand^
It is doubtful whether the hearings as
a whole have thrown any convincing
light on that question, or will throw
any. Political economists and other ex
perts differ oil the proposition, as
members of the two houses of congress.
And yet the answer to this question
must be clearly and convincingly made
before there can be any railroad legis
lation which the country will.acceptas
satisfactory. I is conceded by Mr.
Bacon, by Governor Cummins, and by
other distinguished men who have testi
fied in favor" of the administration pro
gram, that conferring general *atemak
fng power on the government would be
revolutionary. Tor this reason they
deem it inadvisable to confer the gen
eral ratemaking power upon the com
mission. I is this view of the case
which has brought so many shippers to
Washington. They have been informed
bv the railroads that the effect of the
administration policv would be td give
the government, in the end, the general
