DECLARE THEM REASONABLE
Statement in Detail Made by
Southern and Atlantic
(By Associated Press.)
WASHINGTON, September O.-Tho
Southern Ballway, the Atlantic Coast
Line, tho Central of Georgia, tho At
chlson, Topjka and Santo ?? and tho
PonnsylvanU, havo filed their answers
to the Inciuliy of lho Interstate Com?
merce Commission concerning relations
between ref.tgtrator lines and railroads.
All except ihe two last mentioned, de?
claro that thoy aro In no way respsni;!
blo for the charges made by tho Ar?
mour car linos.
The Southern Railway admits lhat lho
charges made by the Armour car lines
for the refrigeration of fruit and vege?
tables are as stated In the order of the
Interstate Commerce Commission, and
that the refrigeration charges are In de?
tail set forth In refrigeration tariffs or
circulars, copies of Which from timo to
time, havo been furnished by the Ar?
mour lines. The. roud says the tariffs
have been freely distributed for the con?
venience of the shippers, so as to ac?
quaint them with the charges made by
the refrigerator lines.
Responsibility for the chutes mado by
the Armour lines Is denied by tho South?
ern Railway, which says the rates quoted
, by It to the shippers ot fruit, vegetables
and berries, from points In the States
ot Georgia, South Carolina, and North
Carolina to New York and other norfb
eastern markets do not Include tbo cost
of refrigeration, and Its tariffs specifi?
cally provide that Its rates as published
do not Include cost of refrigeration. The
respondent avers that this Is under?
stood by shippers, and that they make a
separate, distinct and Independent con?
tract with Ihn Armour lines for refriger?
ation service, to which the railway Ms
In no way a party, beyond the collection
of the charges for tho refrigerator lines.
The railway says It pays three-quarters
of, a cent a mile lo the Armour lines for
the use of Its re?Hgcrulor cars, whether
they are loaded or empty. The charges
of the refrigerator lines are said by the
respondent to bo Just and reasonable, and
It.Is denied that the road, acting through
the Armour car lines or otherwise, has
been, or Is collecting refrlge'ratlon
charges at a lower rate from some ship?
pers than from others.
Tho reply\ of tho Atlantic Coast Lino
Railway enters Into the same general
denials of responsibility for the Armour
car lines' charges as has heen mado by
the Southern Railway Company. The
Atlantic Coast 3_,!ne, however, did, nt the
request of tho North Carolina Truckers'
and Fruit Growers' Association, make
a contract with the Armour car lines,
under the descriptive name of the "Triflt
Growers* Express," under which the re?
frigerator line was obligated to chargo
rates not to exceed tho respondent's
tariffs, effective April 1, 3902, and May
