AS TO CARLOAD QUANTITIES
An Inter-Slat Conameree Derision of
Wa-h im. tun ClTT, March 17 The inter
state commission Saturday, in an opinion
by Commissioner Bchooumaker, decided the
ease brought against the trunk Hues by P.
It. Thiirber and others, Thomas L. Green
and Francis H. Leggett & Co.. of New York
city, known as the "carload" oases, in favor
of the complainants. Complaint was mode
of too great differences in rate charged on
carload and lees than car'oad quantities.
The cases excited widespread interest, and
more than 4,000 persons, firms and corpora
tions doing business in various sections of
the country ill ! memorial? with the com
mission expres-in-f their vh ws for or against
the relief sought tor by the complainants.
The Principles I. u I Down. .
The commission roeogni ms the right of
classification and also tho '.gat of the rail
way to charge higher rate f 11- less than car
loads than tor carloads. But carriers are
not at liberty to Hassily iroperty and im
pose charges exclusively in their own inter
est; they must also respect the interest ot
the shipper. Neither is coai of servica alone
a controling element in fixing charges. The
value of the service must also 1 properly
regarded. A difference in rates upon car
loads and less titan carloai s which destroys
competition between large and small deal
ers is unjust and violative f the law.
Application of ti e Name.
There is no justification f r a difference in
rates between a solid carloa 1 from one con
signor and a carload made 1 p of like freight
in smaller quantities from d ffereut consign
ors. The official classification discriminates
unjustly as to the articles kr own as groceries
in carload and less than car oad quantities,
and a revision is necessary to correct this

and made an appeal for aid for the suffering
Chippewa Indians in his diocess He said
the government had stolen 1 1, Oi W O Ml acres

While visiting these people. I cut. r.sl the
bouse of an Indian. There was no food in
the house that day, but there w ere tears and
desperation. A poor old Indian woman bad
a puny, sick child in ber arms. She cried
for joy w hen she saw mo, thinking God had
sent relief to her children. She showed me
her child. There was not a pound of flesh
on its bones. I am sure that child is dead. 1

of misery in large cities, but 1 could not but
cry on that occasion. In one corner of the
room there was a boy 0 years of age. An
other was crying by the chimney place try

Indian was kneeling by the tire place mutter

white race. At another hovel a poor man
