Inspector Joseph McDermott, in

ance. The only expense to the house

iron, can with a tight cover.
'- There is money in handling gar-
bage.- N o attempt whatever is made
t!o dispose of the garbage in any other
way than to burn it, but stockraisers
come to the crematory almost daily
in order to buy it. Thus far this
year Mr. McDermott has sold gar
bage to the amount of $987, or more
than enough to pay the whole fuel
bill for the year.

DECEMBER 19, 1903.
The railroad and warehouse com
mission has notified the twin city
Chieago lin es that they must return
for 1903 taxes the $2 switching charge
made on each car of live stock shipped
The ruling is made in accordance
with an opinion by W . J. Donahower,
assistant attorney general, who holds
that this switching charge is part of
the thru rate, and should be appor
tioned to Minnesota earnings on a
mileage basis. The thru rate of $42
a car includes this switching charge
of $2. Some of the roads have re
ported the entire rate, while others
have deducted the switching charge,
claiming that it is not part of their
earnings. The opinion holds that the
full rate is their gross earnings on the
haul, and the $2 paid by the lines
to the Chicago terminal companies is
a part" of their operating expenses.
I t is understood that the roads will
comply in every case, and'include the
$2 charge when they pay their 1903
taxes next month.
The amount involved is" not so im
portant as the principle. A line hav
ing 25 per cent of its mileage in Min
nesota would pay the 3 per cent tax
on one-fourth of the Chicago haul.
That would be 3 per cent of $10, not
counting the switching charge. Un
der the commission's ruling the road
would, pay 3 per cent on $10.50.
I n his opinion Mr. Donahower cites
the practice of the interstate com
merce ..corrimission, which counts in
all terminal chai'ges as part of ia thru
rate, when investigating to determine
whether a rate is reasonable.

WORRY OVER ELKINS LAW
Railroad Men Don't Like the Publics^
tion Clause. .:
Railroad men are worrying over thr
new rule requiring the publication of
import a nd export tariffs. Under the
Elkins law the penalty is so severe
and so easily applied that it is a ques
tion which the roads would prefer to
d o, suffer the penalty or comply with
the law. Traffic managers agreed that
the export and import business of the
roads might Just as we ll be given up
as to be confined to a given schedule
even f or ten days at a time. -.:
The rates the railroads can charge
depend on the foreign demand for
breadstuffs and on the ocean rates,
which, in turn, depend on the num
ber of steamers available for the traf
fic. The result is that these rates are
as changeable as the winds.
Some railroad men admit that the
law applies to export and import
rates and others deny the application
on the ground that the export and im
port rates have no effect on the do
mestic rates. But a ll contend that theT
new rule will not only be ruinous to
the traffic but contrary to public pol
icy, as it is these very exports which
produce the balance of trade in favor
of this country.
