CAUSE AND EFFBGT AN THE PACKERS' TRIAL 1" " / y r HIGHEST TRIBUNAL HEARS SPOKANE RATE CASE ARGUMENTS BEGIN ON COM MERCE COURT'S OVERRULING OF COMMERCE COMMISSION. Washlngton, Feb. 3L.-A~gument was begun today in the supreme court by attorneys for Spokane, Wash., and other Intermountain cities, to obtain final Judicial ruling on the order of the Interstate commerce commisllon granting to those cities freight rates lower than are granted to Pacific coast points on shipments from the east. T'he arguments marked the closing phase of a fight that has lasted more than 20 years. J. A. Fuwler, assistant to the attorney general, appeared for the government. He outlined the case, touching on the constitutionality of the long-and-short-haul clause of the Interstate commerce law, the validity of the interstate commerce commis sion's order and the action of the com merce court In enjoining enforcement of the order on the ground that the commission is without authority to Is sue such general instructions. Mr. Fowler asserted that with freight rates on shipments from the east to Spokane as high as to Pa cific coast cities, the latter could com jpete with Spokane In its natural ter ritorF and thus rob Epokane of the advantage due It by reason of Its geographical posltion. He insisted that authority to curb) the railroads' power to advance or retard the growth of cities through ,manipulation of freight rates must rest With somo agencyj Tihe court will ,hear further argu ments Monday.
