The old question ot the Eu Claire
rates is not settled yet and Frederick
Weyerhauser, who does not agree with
tbe action of the interstate commission
ii up in the arms over the recent decis
ion. He intends to take a hand himself
in the apparently somewhat difficult pro

Minneapolis & Omaha what lumber
freight rates ought to bs. He is inter
ested in three or four lumber companies,
whose mills are located at points north,
whose rates, under the Omaha system,
are based on the iu Claire rates. The
Interstate Commerce commission has said
that there is such a thing as a legal rate
from the Eau Claire district to the Mis
souri river. It is said that "the old man'
will make an active campaign from this
time forward, even if he has to do a little
railroad business himself.
