,THB WA&Hl5?GT0N TIMES, -WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 1912. i n t ! RANSIT ' PILES BRIEF TO HI TEST JURISDICTION Supreme Court to Decide Whether or Not Concern k Is Comrion Carrier. Attorneys for the Chicago Stockyard" nd ,Trns1t' Comjiany huso filed brleCa with the clerk of the Supreme Court of. the United Slates In support of thol contention that the itockrnrds nre not coramcn carriera within thu Jurisdiction of the Interstate Commerce Commis sion. The test of Jurisdiction arises from an attempt of the corcmliolon to Imalldate a contribution of 0O,cco made by the stockyards company to Pfnelser & Sons, packers. This money -mis to be uted In erecting a part of a new picking plant on the transportation lines of tho stock J ards coirpan). The commission ottacked the pn merit as a rebate and, therefore, unlawful. When the railroads took the cose be fore the Commerce Court that tribunal found In fax or of the railroads, denln that the lntcrstate''commerce laws gae the ctmmltalon Jurisdiction of the stockyaids property. The attitude of the Supreme Court of the United States In this casn will be ratched wllh much Interest by many States which. In recent cars, have de clared, by statute, that stockyards and atockyurd transportation ptoperty es pecially, are common carriers, and, theitfore. subject to the orders of a railway commlstlon. The admission that the commission haK jurisdiction oer stock) ards In volves much more than appears on the face. Much stockyard profit comes from feeding cattle. The commission acquires regulatory power oer this. Other profit comes from switching cars between the several packing houses. Discrimination Is frequently practiced and with prent. The commission, would be In a position to put an end to this. Through the acknowledgement of commission power stock) ards lay them selves open to physical valuation, to rate regulation, and to probes Into their ordinarily excessive capitalizations. These are some of the reasons, other than tho KO.000 gift of Pfaelzer & Sons. S& L! Don't Pay Rent Don't pay rent any longer. In these progressive days every man should own his home.
