SATS Ja J DILL
Denounces Plan of Mr.
Railroad Magnate Does Not
Want Commission to .
Too Low- Now, He Says, and Furthor
Reduction Moans Out in
NEW YORK, Doc 17. "Tho railway
companies of tho United States will obey
tho laws," said James' J. Hill, president of
tho Northern Securities company, when
asked for his views on President Roose
velt's proposed Interstate commorco court
to fix railroad rates.
"Wo will obey tho laws, but thero Is a
limit to railway legislation. They cannot
confiscate our proporty. Tho constitution
of the United States still prevents that."
Mr. Hill declared that If power Is given
to tho Interstate Commerce commission
to fix rates, that body would havo more
autocratic power than any other five mon
in tho world. Ho declared "the commis
sion cannot be Sheriff, grand Jury, Prose
cutor, court nnd autocrat all In ono day
tho Sheriff to arrest, the grand jury to In
dict, tho Prosecutor to ferret out evidence,
tho court to try and the autocrat to oper
ate tho railway companies,."
American Rates the Lowest.
i"Tho transportation rates of tho Ameri
can railways aro tho wonder of tho ontlro
world," he contluued. "Nowhorp else aro
they so cheap. Experts and managers
from Europo como over hero to examlno
our systems and marvel at what they see.
In England tho averago rato per ton per
mllo ls 2.SS cents. In France, Germany
and other continental countries it falls
lower, until In Russia, where the condi
tions for long hauls aro moro llko our
own, the minimum is renched.
"In America our rates averago only .70
cent per ton per mllo. That ls 42 per cont,
if I remember rightly, of the lowest Euro
pean rato. Yet our wages aro tho highest
In tho world. In Russia tho railway em
ployees receive H2 to J20 a month for work
fcr which wo pay $50 to ?t a month.
Quotes Figures to Prove It.
"Let me give you some actual figures
compiled from tho operations of tho
Great Northern railway, showing what a
great Increaso thero has been In trans
portation, and what an enormous reduc
tion thero litis beon in tho rates charged:
Miles of road ,007 6,593
Tons of freight hauled.... 1.007.63G 1C.1-13.G73
Rcvenuo per ton mllo .... 2.51c .857c
Averago tons per train.... 117.27 -tlO.78
Average tons por car " 5.70 13.05
"Had tho company received the samo
average rate per ton per mile In 1903 as
In 1SS2 it would have collectod JiO.S20.109
as freight earnings, whllo the actual col
lections were $00,915,234, a decreaso through
reductions in freight rates of J59.90I.S15.
"Reduction in freight rates has been
brought about by tho increasing volume
of traffic, by building heavier roadbeds,
locomotives and cars. That volume has
been Increased by making such rates as
will enable shippers to develop new lines
of traffic and by building additional mllo
ago that would create traffic. To reduco
tho coBt of transportation In tho face of
a continual Increaso In wages and ad
vances In the prices of material, tho only
way was to Increase the amount of work
dono by each trnln and so recclvo a largo
Increase for the train per mile."
Discusses Probable Effect.
"What la the object of this demand to
give more power to the Inlerstato Com
merce commission, and what will bo Its
effect?" Mr. Hill was asked.
"Thero Is a record that speaks for It
self." replied Mr. Hill "An examina
tion of tho official reports will show that
In tho last seventeen years 92 per cent
of all tho rate cases considered by tho
Interstate Commerce commission has been
settled out of court that is, tho'
havo been adjusted by the railway com
panies themselves. Likewise, in overy
contested caso that has been carried to
the Supremo court tho commission has
"If tho proposition Is to establish a
separate court to consider these cases. It
might bo a beneficial thing, but I fear the
court would havo little to do.
"If tho proposition Is to give tho com
mission the right to fix rates arbitrarily,
tho flvo members would havo moro auto
cratic power than that of any other five
men in the world.
"I already have shown that our Ameri
can rates are tho lowest less than three
eights of thoso of England, where the
wages arc lower and the hauls shorter.
"Tho Interstato Commorco commission
already has all the power required to ad

tho present laws It has power enough to
hang a murderer."

HOUSTON, Tex.. Dec. 17. An Intornal
