Washington, July 10.?The Inter?
state Commerce Commission to-day
began the hearing of the discriminating
freight rate case In which the Charles?
ton, S. C, Bureau of Freight and
Transportation appears as complain?
ant against the various railway lino*
connecting Charleston, Norfolk and
p Wilmington with points West and
South. There are about forty Indi?
vidual road* named us defendants, tho
r-SoUthern, the Atlantic Coast Line As?
sociation, the Seaboard Air Line and
the Baltimore and Ohio.
The charge Is the long-standing com?
plaint of Charleston that discriminating
rates are made by the railways In favor
of Norfolk nnd against Charleston bath
on products front the West and for
foreign and coastwise shipment and for
railway distribution from Norfolk to
other southern points.
RAILWAY MEN AND COUNSEL.
The hearing began to-day before
Commissioners Clements, Prouty and
Calhoun. There appeared for the com
plnlnantfl J. 1'. K. Bryan, counsel, and
.lohn A. Smith, manager of tne Charles?
ton Freight Bureau, Counsel for tho
j defendant carriers was Edward Uaxter.
Among those present at the hearing
were William Campbell, General freight
agent of the Chicago and Eastern Illi?
nois Railway; J. M. Culp. traffic man?
ager "of the Southern Hallway, and II.
W. Glover, traffic manager of the Sea?
THE FIRST WITNESS.
The first witness was S. F. Parrott,
chairman of the Southeastern Freight
Association. His examination develop?
ed the fact that this association was
the successor of the Southern States
Freight Association and this In turn
of the old Southern Railway and
Steamship Association; Mr. Parrott
s.ud that a good many arrangements of
the latter association were still in force
as to the rates from the East to South?
east) rn seaboard points. He was not
fully conversant with the way these
rates had been made. Changes In rates
were usually discussed at the meetings
of ihe association, although it did not
undertake to make and enforce them.
\1 KCl.VIA RAILWAY ASSOCIATION
W. 11. Fitzgerald, Commissioner of'
the Virginia Hallway Association, was
called, but he added very little to the
knowledge of how rates to the South
Atlantic ports were made. His asso?
ciation, he said, consisted of the At?
lantic Coast Line and the Southern
Railway, the Seaboard Air Line having
been a member till about three years
ago. His office, however, had nothing
:>> do with Western through rates,
n ei ely publishing and compiling the
rate* given It by the individual roads.
Counsel tor the Charleston Freight Bu
reau endeavored to find on what prin?
cipal the rates into Charleston were
made, but Mr. Fitzgerald after an
hour's questioning, could only say that
they were compiled by John A. Ryan,
one of the rate clerks In his office.
Witness said he gave no Instructions
as to how the compilation should be
made and did not review the work after
it was done. If the work was not sat?
isfactory to the Individual roads, they
'? mid call attention P> It. Otherwise
the clerks compilations stood. Mr.
FlUgeialil at ilrsl said that U would bo
impossible for the Southern railways to
reduce the Western through rates to
South Atlantic ports without reducing
the loeai rates to Interior points, as It
would Interfere with the long and short
