The Cashman Bill.
The Cashman distance tariff bill
is again before the legislature and
action is" expected this week. The
matter contained in the bill is not
new as but one or two provisions dif
fer from the bill which was present
ed and defeated- two years, ago. The
problem haa,.,bejen, heferje ilegialaturea
The Cashman bill proposes to have
freight rates based/an? the distance
the haul is to be made. At present,
the railroads generally make a rate
to a terming and then, base rate*
from intermediate points on the ter
minal rate. In addition, they have lo
cal rates which apply to shipments
between two pojnjtn neither of which
is a terminal.
For example, the rate,.on a car of
flour from Crookaton. to CulutU is
eleven cents. whOe,, fro.m_CrftQkaton
to SemidJi. it. is,eightcents. ^rom
Crook$ton..tQ_Grajfcd Rapids Jhft.raJte

through rate,. Bui if th.ei- car-, is

rate is eigkt: centftj to Bjejni^ji and
ten cents from, here, to Gr^nsLRaB
ids, making the total- freight eigh

Another case- was brought- out in
the recent primary campaign. The
rate on lumber from Deer River to
Long Prairie is is practically the
same as, the rate from: Deer Riyer to
Minneapolis and from Minneapolis
back to Long Prairie. It is to remedy
these discriminations against the in
terior towns in favor of the big ter
minals that the Cashman.bill is pro
But there are two sides of the
question. Should the bill become a
law it will at once nullify the ter
minal rates which ate in existence at
the present time. Instead of enjoy
ing rates by which they have been
able to build their, city at the ex
pense of the inland towns, the big
cities will find^a. lot, of.that trade
going elsewhere* In fact, every man
ufacturer in the state will find that
his territory has changed. It is the
manufacturers andr terminal interests
largely who are, opposing the bilL
In this matter, Bemidji appears
to be between two fires. Vhero
to be little difference of opinion
among the wholesalers but what, the
Cashman bill will be of great as
sistance. On the othe* hand, the
