North Carolina Case W.orkers' asso

large number of other railway com
panies whose connecting lines do i
trans-continental business. It con
cerned the failure of the companie
to furnish 40 and 42 feet cars to car

complaint to the commission they say
that the , roads give them a 36-foot
car and chargo $1.75 for each 100
p,hnds with. a minimum of 20,000
pounds.per car, thus subjecting them
to paymont for 8,000 pounds more
than the actual,weight shipped. Tbey
have asked' the commission to compel
the roads to give them a rate of $1.70
a* hundred at a minimum of 12,000
pounds, which, they say,- is enjoyed
by furniture shippers in other locali
Counsel, in reply to the complaint,
states that as provided in the West
ern and Southern classifications the
36-foot cars take a minimum of 12,
000 pounds but that the $1.70 rate
is a special commodity rate applying
to Pacific coast terminals only and
covers a class of cheap and medium
grade furniture that, if subjected to
the iegular rating, would require a
rate of $2.40 a liidred. The counsel
furtlier declared that their inability
to siuprly cars'of larger d1imenions is
diuto I (lie shortage of cars all over the
country, and that the railway com
panies are doing everyfh in their
