BIG RAILROADS IN FOR PROBE
CHARGES CAUSE BIG PRICES
Big Business looks as though an
other of its faults is going to be
shown up. Att'y Gen. McReynolds
today suddenly announced through
Dis't Att'y Wilkerson that he was go
ing after certain railroads operating
through the middle west.
Behind McReynolds' action are
stories told his investigators by fruit
farmers in the middle western states.
His investigators asked the farmers
why they were letting fruit die on the
ground instead of shipping it to Chi
cago, from where it could be sent
throughout the country.
And the farmers told them of the
obstacles that confronted the farm
ers through the grab-all spirit of Big
Business. According to the federal
investigators they claimed that the
railroads are asking such big prices
for refrigerator cars that they can't
afford to send their goods to the city
and for that reason the people are be
ing cheated out of much fruit and
paying too much for what they get.
They charge that it costs them $50
to $75 to rent a car to carry this stuff
It -is also charged that the packers
are letting hundreds of refrigerator
cars lay idle rather than rent them
to the farmers cheaper.
Wilkerson will immediately get
busy on the Chicago end of the case.
Investigators from Washington are
still working in the middle west
