Present Lam Ample, W. D.
Hives Contends.
Washington. April M.-TIM Senate Committee on
Interstate Commerce to-day retimed the hearing
of the railroad rate question. Walker D. Hinea,
formerly of the JxmisvKle and Nashville, Railroad
Company, appeared before tin: committee.
Mr. rllnea discusaed what he termed a prevalent
impression that the Interstate Commerce Commis
sion had no power under the present law because
the law was ineffective, and asserted that this
impression was due largely to declarations by
members of the commission to that effect. He
believed that there now was a substantial control
of rates by the oemnMasiea and that the present
law was very effective. In the course of his state
ment he said:
Th.- plan to give the commission the rate making
power Js a radical departure from the principle of
the present law. It necessarily will operate to de
prive owner* of the railroads of any voice in the
management of all traffic for which the commis
sion may ir.hk» rates, and practically will put
within the absolute power nf the commission the
rirht arbitrarily to interfere with the. ft» .- move
ment of commodities from one locality to another.
Practically th« whole demand for siviuic the com
mission ih'> rat** making power rests on the as
sumption that nt present carriers can charge what,
rates they please, without any power anywhere to
control them. This has l.eon shown to be utterly
erroneous. There is ample power under the pres
ent law to correct every unlawful rate, it )•■;
claimed thnt for ton years the commission exer
cistd with question this rate mat Ing power and
that the results, were beneficial and not injurious
to the carrier*. President Roosevelt assumed this
Ui I*- true in l.is message for 1901, but the fact Is
that continuously from the very outset both the
i.-iiri'rs and the courts disputed the possession of
this power by the commission.
By far the most potent Influence In behalf of the
rate-maUnc power in the almost universal belief
that ihm power is necessary to cure secret rebates.
which have been by all odds the greatest cause of
<jfs«itjst";ix'tloi] ■■■'! railroad management In thia
Country. This is the only specific evil referred in
by the President In hi* iwaagw to Congress laM
irtnter, and the To»-n»end bill has !.••-. spoken of
In tbe press as thi» "anti-rebate bill." Tet neither
the ratr making power nor anything in the Town
send bill has any connection whatever with pre
venting rebates. Rules made by* a commission could
and woull be secretly departed from just as
'•a.-ily as rat* ma.de by the carrier. The prvst-nt
law is ample to stop rebates, and nothing whatever
In the rateMnaaing power will help In that direc
Much stress is also placed on the commission's
report which showed an Increase of revenue of
$lo.V"oo.'»>> due to advances This report Is grossly
inaccurate and unfair. it Ignores Important reduc
tions In rates, uses incorrect and misleading sta
tistics and makes wholly untrue statements regard
ing traffic condition! l .
la the .iiscussion of the intent of the present law
Senator Oillom. vi.,, niHi!.- the report on which the
law was based, said there was no Intention to
give thf. commission the power to fix rates. No
b«*dy beliffv-ed that power was given to the com
mission. It was necessary at that tim" to cre
ate a body th.it could get dose to the people, find
out what th*-y wanted, and represent them. It
would have been impossible for any individual at
that time to make a fight against a railroad, for he
would be crushed.
•He could not afford to carry on the suits, re
mark«-1 Chairman ElkinF; * > h» couldn't pet the
Mr. Hines explained that one. of the serious re
sults' of allowing a coniml.«fn"n to fix rates would
be that a4l rates so fixed would be. permanent; that
when conditions changed, requiring .•». change of
rates, it would ay impossible to have the change
made, because The commission would be so over
whelmed with cases that it could not consider the
request. Combinations of railroads, In the opinion
of Mr. Hines. had a tendency to decrease rates.
Railroads reached out for business, and th» strug
gle for business reduced rates.
■■Doecn't this lead to rebates aM discrimina
tions?" asked Senator Cullom.
"Xot to rebates, but a reduction of rates," an
swered Mr. Hines.
Before Mr. Hines had finished bis statement the.
committee adjourned until Wednesday, at 11 o'clock.
No session will be \\e\<i to-morrow on account of th«
funeral of Senator Platt, of Connecticut.

SMALL BIDS OX $2oJ)00j300.
Controller Grout Disappointed —
Say* Market Is Overloaded.
Controller Grout yesterday opened bids for ©5,
000,000 Of' bonds to meet the expenses of many pro
jected public Improvements. Of this amount H6.000,
000 Is to be used for municipal purposes, {2,000,000
for water supply, $2,500,080 for rapid transit, $;(.'««'.
000 for assessment bonds and $1,080,600 for public li
Alr. Grout said lie was disappointed at the bids,
as Dearly all were for small amounts, and there
was only one syndicate bid. from a syndicate com
posed by Harvey Flsk &- Bon, risk & Robinson and
Solomon & Co. The largest Individual premium
received was from J. Howard Cheneymeny, of
River head, who offered PS for one $1,000 bond.
"Tho- mark t is overloaded with city stock." said
th« Controller. "We had three targe stock Bales
within a year, and there are about 04600.000 of the
last issue still In the brokers' hands.
The sale yesterday tvouM probably supply all the
money needed by the city until next year, tho
Controller said. At the last sale of C 6.000,000 cor
porate stock, the average price reached was 10&41.
The tabulations showed that- th« acceptance of
th' syndicate bid for all or none would be a loss
to the city of CSOO, and it was necessary to appor
tion the issue according to the bids received.
