to clear the court room at once. A
crowd of hungers-011 in die corridors

(Author ot Initiative flato Bill)
Author of initiative hate Dili,
It has been asserted that the now
Oregon railroad rate law passed nt
tho general election, cancels com
modity rates. This Is but ono ot
many mis-statements being circu
lated to prejudice the public against
tho measure.
If the commodity rate Is In ex
cess of the maximum rate fixed by
the bill, the maximum rate prescribed
in the bill will prevail and automatic
ally cancel tbe commodity rate; on
tho other hand 1C tho commodity
rate, present or fixed In the future,
Is less than the maximum rate' pre
scribed in tbe bill, tho commedlty
rate will be thu lawful rate.
Principle Involved
Tho bill prescribed maximum car
carload rates, and d 081. prescribe
absolute rates nor minimum , rate.
Tbo principle Involved u'tlw.same aa
contained In tho Canadian Commla-
slSii-Taw and'tuT "ffiM&SUOmiS&Z
merco Act. I. c, a standard maxi
mum rate basis Is provldod above
which neither the railroads nor tho
railroad commission may fix carload
rates, at less than tho maximum car
rates, at less than tho mexlmum car
loads prescribed In the bill. Neither
tho railroads nor tho commission
may fix less than carload commodity
or class rates without automatically
fixing tho carload rate on tho'artlcio.
Tho bill prescribes certain relation
ships that shall always bo main
tained between a less than carload
rate and tho carload rate regardless
of whether the less than carload
rato is a commodity rate or a class
Nu lUttcs Advanced
The bill does not advanco a slnglo
rate, neither in spirit nor letter, and
should the railroads arbitrarily at
tempt to advance tho Ipsacr spepcial
or commodity rate to tho maximum
rates prescribed In tbo bill, It is tho
duty of the railroad commission to
protect tho shipper, Tha people ot

measure with a large majority, and
