CHARGES FROM PORT TO LOS
COMPLAINT FILED WITH STATE
Because of Discrimination Much of
Freight Destined for Los Angeles
Is Sent By Way of
Initial steps were taken yesterday to
do away with the excessive rates
charged for transporting freight be
tween San Pedro and Los Angeles
■when A. P. Fleming, secretary of the
board of harbor commissioners ap
peared before the state railroad com
mission and filed a complaint in which
the commission is asked to establish
stations for receiving and discharging
freight in the territory now a part of
Los Angeles as a result of annexation.
Copies of the complaint will be served
on the Southern Pacific and the Salt
Lake route, and replies will be made
by those companies in ten days. A
hearing will be had in thirty days,
■when a definite decision will be
According to the complaint the es
tablishment of public team tracks for
the receipt and discharge of freight.
Is the only method of solving the prob
lem which now confronts merchants
doing business in Greater Los Angeles.
If the stations are established, full rec
ognition of Greater Los Angeles as a
unit city will be given by the rail
roads. This is one of the points for
■which the harbor commission has been
lighting for a long time.
In the complaint an equitable rate
for switching cars from one station to
another Is also prayed for. If the de
mands of the commissioners are grant
ed the rate will be the same between
all points. Thus the exorbitant local
rate between Pan Pedro and Los An
geles will be eliminated and the great
tonnage destined for Los Angeles and
interior points now being received'
through the port of San Diego will be
received direct in Los Angeles through
its own port of San Pedro.
Rates Should Be Same
It is argued in the complaint which
■was read to the commissioners by
Secretary Fleming, that by virtue of
the election of August 28, 1909, San
Pedro and Wilmington became integral
parts of Los Angeles. As such, it is
argued San Pedro and Wilmington are
entitled to similar treatment at the
hands of the railroads and the same!
freight rates as the various parts of
Los Angeles, enjoyed before consoli
The charge now made by the South
ern Pacific company for switching all
freight except crude oil in the old
limits of Los Angeies, is 25 cents a ton,
or a minimum of J5 a car. On crude
oil it is $10 a car. These charges are
considered unjust and unreasonably
high. For transporting freight o£ all
kinds between San Pedro and Los An
geles, the charge is $2 a ton. On lum
ber it is $1.20 a ton. The rr.ies of the
Southern Pacific and the Salt Lake
routes are the same.
It is alleged in the complaint that,
although Los Angeles is a maritime
city and that during the year ending!
January 1, 1910, the total tonnage of j
the Port of Los Angeles was 1,438,527
tons, or about one-fourth the tonnage
of San Francisco, terminal rates have
been denied local shippers. In other
words shippers must pay the through
rate from any point to Los Angeles
h.rbor and then pay in addition the
local rate of $2 per ton between Los
Angeles and San Pedro. This, it is
declared, is a manifest injustice and
means the ruin of commerce for Los
San Diego Favored
By way of comparison it is cited in
the complaint that the Santa Fe rail
road hauls freight from San Diego to
Los Angeles, a distance of 127 miles,
at the same rate that the Southern
Pacific and Salt Lake routes charge for
hauling freight between San Pedro and
the business center of Los Angeles, a
distance of twenty-four miles. It is
declared 75 per cent of the through
freight destined to Los Angeles har
bor, is diverted so as to gro through
the port of San Diego. This is alleged
to be unjust discrimination against the
commercial and consuming interests of
In conclusion the complaint recites:
"That the distance from River sta
tion to University station in the city
of Los Angeles is seven miles, and

Summerland and Cterk R. W. Armstrong.

"That freight is hauled from River
station to University station at the
rate of 3.57 cents a ton a iille, and
that the rate from River station to
Los Angeles harbor is 8.34 cents a ton
a mile, all of which is within the
boundaries of the city of Los Angreles,
and that the rate to San Diego from
Los Angeles for all freight going be
yond San Diego is 1.57 cents a ton a
mile, and that the average charge by
: railroads for hauling freight through
out the United States fnr a distance of
fifty miles is approximately 11 mills a

200 miles or more the rate charged
throughout the United States will

Rate Is Excessive
"That the report of the collector of
customs at Los Angeles harbor for
the year ending January 1, 1910, shows
[ that there were 963,629 tons of lumber

fair to presume the railroads men
tioned herein, being the only railroads
operating to and from Los Angeles
harbor, would collect their rate of
$1.20, -which would amount, during the
year, to $1,15G,334. The report further
shows that there were various kinds
of merchandise to the amount of 293,
--432 tons received at Los Angeles har
bor, upon which it is fair to presume
that the railroads mentioned herein
would collect the local rate of $2 a
ton, which would amount to $585,865,
making a total of $1,743,219, or an
earning a mile a year of $72,634, which
this board of commissioners avers is
unreasonable, unjust and oppressive,
and largely in excess of a fair and
remunerative return upon the capital
"Wherefore, the board of harbor
commissioners respectfully prays you
will at once compel the Southern Pa

effort has been made by the rail
roads to pass the question up to the

this met with failure yesterday, when
the harbor commissioners, through

MANY SEEK POSITIONS
AS CENSUS ENUMERATORS
Supervisor Farmer Announces Time
for Filing Applications Has
Been Extended a Week
The time allowed by the census bu
reau for the filing of applications for
positions as census enumerators has
been extended and Bert L. Farmer,
supervisor for this district, will re
ceive applications up to February 1.
According to the bulletin first issued
by the census bureau applications
would not be considered after January
25, but owing to a delay in getting
the necessary blanks this time has been
extended one week.
Little fear is felt that there will not
be enough men in this district to take
the census properly. It will require
about 325 men to do the work in the
time allotted and already Mr. Farmer
has received applications from nearly
twice this number. The appointments
will be announced about February 5.
The examination which must be
passed by the prospective enumerator
is a comparatively easy one. It Is in
tended more to weed out would-be enu
merators of no efficiency than to make
them display any great amount of
Census taking will begin April 15.
Fifteen days are allowed by the cen
sus bureau to take the census in towns
of 5000 inhabitants or over and thirty

days' work. ___

daughter of wealthy parents in On
tario, Canada, took the witness Stand
in Police Judge Frederickson's court
yesterday at the preliminary examina
tion of H. L. Lutes, 31 years old,
charged with abduction. At Its conclu
sion Lutes was bound over to answer
to the superior court in bonds of $2000
and the girl was taken back to her cell
In the county Jail to await the arrival
of her mother from Canada. Her fa

Lutes is a married man. His wife
is close to death in a local hospital.
According to Detectives McNamara and
Carroll, who arrested him, Lutes bears
a bad record with the police and has
assumed eight different aliases. They
say that he has not worked legitimate
ly for ten years and that at one time
he forced his wife Into an immoral oc
cupation to support him.
The girl's story is a sad one. She
said yesterday that in company with
her sister, Stella, 17 years old, and her
uncle, John Scryver, 41 years old, she
left their country home in Ontario,
Canada, for the first time In her life
and came to Los Angeles to spend the
winter. Their uncle recently had fal
len heir to $10,000 from a relative. He
had asked permisison of the parents
of the girls to take them west and
show them a good time. The father
and mother had known him as a sober,
industrious man all his life, and placed
their children in his care.
Arriving here, Scryver became infat
uated with the night life of the city.
He opened his purse strings liberally
and took his nieces with him on his
wild frolics and joy rides. They met
his new found friends, who were help
ing him spend his money, among them
Lutes and W. L. McDebbit, who is at
present in the county jail awaiting
trial on a charge of wronging Ruth's
Bitter. Within four weeks Scryver had
squandered his entire heritage and tied
from the scenes of his revelry, leaving
the girls penniless and dependent upon
their new found friends.
According to the girl's own story,
McDebbitt and Lute* found them rooms
and they lived together for two weeks
until their arrest, pawning their clothes
and jewelry at the men's instigation,
that the four might live.
