THE ROCK ISLAND'S LOSS.
Ta What Prealdeat cable Attribute
U...The Railroad Nltaatioa la Ufa-
eral Other Track Slew.
The salient feature of the annual
financial report of the Rock Inland road
is, of course, the deficit of $974,234 for
the year. The report showing that the
lines west of the Missouri river did not
earn interest charges by nearly a million
dollars, so that this heavy deficit can be
charged almost wholly to J this account.
President Cable states in regard to the
extension west of the Missouri river that
the question presented to the board of
directors some years ago, was, Dow to
increase the volume of business in order
to counteract the effect of the declining
tendency of rates? It was finally decided
to go west of the Missouri river for new
Commenting on the railroad situation
in general, President Cable makes the
For ten years ttjere has been a down
ward tendency in rates. The contest for
business steadily forced rates down, and
in order to encourage and build up com
mercial and manufacturing centers spe
cial rates were given to shippers doing a
large vol u mo . of business. The result
was that in some instances a less rate
was made for a long than for a short
haul. To prevent ruinous reduction in
rates pools were formed. These agree
ments, popularly called pooling contracts,
were objected to by certain portions of
the shipping public, while the custom of
allowing special rates to certain commer
cial centers, was obnoxious to another
portion. As these two methods of busis
ness related mainly to interstate traffic,
congress was appealed to, with the result
that the law known as the interstate com
merce act was passed by that body. This
act forbids pooling, discriminations and
charging in any case more for a short
haul than for a longer haul, the former
being included in the latter. The practi
cal workings of this act was unexpected
ly hurtful to jobbing and manufacturing
centers which had heretofore thriven under
old conditions, since being deprived of a
better rate than retail dealers about them
they could no longer make as their profit
the belter rate secured from the railways.
This produced, notably in the state of
Iowa, much dissatisfaction, especially
among the class thus aftlicted. Jobbers
in that state, doing business with their
customers mainly through interstate
transportation, seekini" relief, ostensibly
from the action of the railway, but really
from the effect of the interstate com
merce law, went to the legislature. That
.body enacted a statute which, so fur as it
could be made applicable, adopted the
interstatecoramerce act. It went.however,
much further. It cuts off all competition,
giving the business in all instances to
the shorter line, unless the longer line
Will, ir it desires to compete, charge the
competing rate on all other equal dis
tances of its line. It requires the rail
way commissioners of that state, who by
a cotemporaneous law are made elective
by the people, instead of as theretofore.
appointive by the governor, to make for
eacn railroad in the state a schedule or
maximum rates for the transportation of
freight, which shall originate and end in
the state. This schedule, when made,
the law makes prima facie evidence of
reasonableness. To charge more consti
tutes a prima facie case of extortion,
which, unless rebutted to the satisfaction
of the courts and juries, subjects the car
rier to heavy fines and penalties.
During the past summer such a sched
ule was published. It was drawn with
the express design to afford so low a rate
to Iowa jobbers and manufacturers that
they could buy in the larger markets, ship
on an interstate rate and then make a
profit in selling to the retailer. A care
lul and actual application of it to the
tonnage of the company in Iowa for the
previous year showed a reduction in
earnings of 23 per centum on the local
business of that state; and the same re
duction applied to the entire tonnage, it
was believed, would have left nothing
for the payment of dividends and en
dangered the inteiest obligations.
Believing a law and schedule produc
ing such results to be illegal and uncon
stitutional, some of the companies, In
cluding ours, sought and obtained from
the federal and state courts temporary
writs of injunction staying the enforce
ment of the schedule. Pending these
suits, the commissioners, proceeding, as
they claimed the right to do, notwith-
. standing the injunction, under another
clause of the law, published another
schedule very slightly modifying the first
one. The change was so slight as to
make no material difference. This
schedule the courts refused to enjoin,
though application therefor was made.
Thus the alternative was presented of ac
cepting the schedule as the limit of the
rate thatcould be charged, or incurring the
chance of the heavy penalties conses
quent on charging more, if the juries of
the state should determine such charge to
be unreasonably bigb. The latter alters
native it was not deemed wise to accept.
To avoid it this company, under protest,
put that schedule into operation, and to
day, by force of this legislation, we are
doing business under a schedule of rates
which reduces the income from business
local to Iowa over 20 per centum, and
which, it applied to the whole tonnage,
would absorb all dividends. In other
states legislation of a character generally
similar has been enacted, and it is natur
al to expect that the people of Nebraska,
Kansas and Colorado will demand at
least as low rates as their neighbors in
Iowa. Then, as the through rates cannot
well be greater than the sum of all the
locals, it may be anticipated that the in
terstate rate will be likewise reduced.
It is apparent from what has been said
that the national and slate governments
are working at cross purposes. The for
mer seeks to abolish all competition and
prererences; uie latter to restore by in
direction the special rates and prefer
ences so long enjoyed by jobbers and
The Ottumwa Presi has the following
revival of the subject of the cut-off of the
Milwaukee road southwest from the city:
While at Marion on Tuesday the Prets
reporter overheard a conversation among
railroad men, the drift of which was that
a surveying force was to be sent from
Davenport southwest, with the object of
a unicago cut-on for the Milwaukee road
reducing the distance and finding a more
level and straightened roabded. While at
Savanna, III., a few days ago. Attorney
W. . Chambers heard in substance the
same talk among railroad men, who
reached that place by a special train.
Such a cut-off, if surveyed and put
through, would doubtless strike the main
Kansas City line at either Ottumwa or
llendrick, and would shorter the Milwau
kee's Chicago and Kansas City line by
from forty to sixty miles. This is some
thing that, were it put through, would
prove a beneficial feature for this city
and its railroad interests. -

CAN WE CELEBRATE.
A Plea for the Foarth r Jaly that
Applicable te Roelc Island.
The Freeport Bulletin In endeavoring
to create a sentiment in favor of a Fourth
of July celebration in that city, publishes
the following article which is applicable
to Rock Island as well:
it seems sometning like sleen years
since Freeport has had any kind of a
Fourth of July demonstration. Every
other city within 1125 miles has indulged
in a celebration of some character since
the red paint flew in this city on the na
tion's natal day. Fourth of July celebra
tions may not be very beneficial or very
desirable, but thev are a necessity. The
American citizen is as full of patriotism
as a ward bummer is of three year old
schnapps and there must be an outlet to
bis enthusiasm. In such a guise comes
the Independence day celebration with its
fuss and feathers, furnishing a slot in
which the patriot may drop his nickel and
draw a noisy dividend. Then, too, there
are those who argue that a celebration is
productive of much genuine good. It
brings several thousand people into town
with a little extra money in their pockets
which they are willing to drop into the
legitimate channels of trade. A dollar
or two is quickly dropped at such times
and much of it is apt to go into the
hands of those who do not ordinarily
get a whack at the regular trade.
The small dealers, the corner mer
chants, the man with the iron jaw
and other figures in commerce, receive
their dividend just as well as the
man with the fifty thousand dollar store
who watches the surging crowds through
a huge transparency of French plate
glass. It is also argued that these cele
brations are serviceable in inculcating a
spirit of patriotism and admiration for
American institutions in the breast of the
American youth. One of the most astute
and renowned statesmen that Jtfichigan
ever owned, no less a person than Ztch
Chandler, who carried the republican
party in his pants pockets until the afore
said unmentionables were worn out, once
said that he had no faith in the patriot
ism of an American who wouldn't howl
and hurrah on the Fourth of July. Zich
ariah may have been a little out of the
way, but all the same there is a deal of
fervor about a gathering of the character
indicated and a British regiment that
would charge an average Fourth of July
procession would be knocked as high as
a pigeon could fly in three weeks. When
the fire cracker snaps and the rocket
sizzes the American citizen feels us large
as a load of hay and his heart alone is as
big as a smoked ham.
All the towns in this vicinity have been
indulging in celebrations, and all point
their thumb over their shoulders and mur
mur "Poor old Freeport." Everybody
wants to come to Freeport and would pres
fer spending the day in this city than in
any other place within fifty miles, but the
people will not come unless some attrac
tion is offered and there is assurance of
some one else being in the town. Furth
ermore Freeport does not keep her own
citizens in town. On the Fourth of July
they hij them away to other cities by hun
dreds. Every man among tbem has his
little old $7 in his inside pocket and he
wants to blow it the worst way. He would
as lieve stay home and fill up on peanuts
and soda water, but he won't stay home
alone. Man is a gregarious animal and
will follow the crowd every time, even
should it lead him to such dismal places
as Rockford or Monona lake. As well
attempt to put out the sun with a squirt
gun or to hang the ocean on a barb wire
fence to dry as to keep the average gay
Freeporter at home when the town is as
voiceless, stolid and recumbent as a
smoked herring. Even a ball or chain
won't fasten him down to home institu
tions. A very decent celebration can be ar
ranged at an outlay of $1,(KM) and even
half that will furnish quite a bit of attrac
tion. The former sum could undoubted
ly be secured in an hour's canvass: onlv
if anything is done it should be done at
once. If there is to be anything in the
movement there must be no grass grow
ing under its feet.
