''aJV asking that rates from the West
o W lnston-Salem and Durham should
e establlshed by the commlssion on
ie same basls as the rates from tlie
^est to Roanoke and Lynchburg.
Ths rates from Western points to
loanoke and Lynchburg are the same
s the rates to Rlchmond, Norfolk,
'ortsmouth and Petersburg. The rates
rom the West to Rlchmond, Norfolk,
'ortsmouth and Petersburg were mada
n competltlon wlth Baltlmore, and aro
he same from the West as to Baltl
nore. Rates from the West to Lynch
iurg and Roanoke are fixed not to ex
eed the rates to the other Virginia
ltles named, whlch are in accordance
vith tho long and short haul clause of
he interstate commerce law, and thls
o'ndltion has existed for a great many
ears.
"Since the passage of the interstate
ommeree law ln 1SST repeated efforts
lave been made by Danville and Char
otte, and, in the present case, by Wln
ton-Salem and Durham, to have the
ates from the West thereto reduced to
he same'.basls as the rate to the Vlr>
;lnla cltics above mentloned; but the
nterstate Commerce Commlssion has
Iwaya held that the natural advan
ages of the Virginia citles and the
ompetltlon as between those citles and
laltlmore on frelght from the West,
ustifted the low basis of rates there
o. and has refused to reduce the rates
or the compiainant!?.
Attack on Rnte.
"In the present lnstance,
Hnston-Salem and Durham
ated on tho Norfolk and
:allway, which reached them through
:oanoke and Lynchburg, respectively,
he Corporatlon Commlssion of tho
tate of North Carollna attacked the
ates to those points, asking for the
'irglnia citles' basis. Evidontly tha
ommlsslon still adheres to its former
ositlon, as it does not reduce the rates
rom the West to Win6ton-Salem and
)urham down to the basls appllcable
o Roanoke and Lynchburg, but slm
ly reduce the ratea from Roanoke
nd Lynchburg to Wlnston-Salem and
Hirham, Whlch rates must be added to
he rates from the West to Roanoke
nd Lynchburg in order to maka
hrough rates therefrom to Winston
iale niand Durham.
As a rc?ult, Winston-Salem and
)urham are ln no better posltlon
.'hen compared wlth Roanoke and
.ynchhurg 'Aan thoy were before thelr
oiuplaint asking for the saine ratea
s to Roanoke and Lynchburg.
"The rates to Wlnston-Salem and
)urham have hertofore been the same
rom Norfolk, Portsmouth, Petersburg,
tichmond, Lynchburg and Roanoke,
nd it is nuite posslble, ln fact, very
robable, that the reductlons ordered
y tho Commlssion from Lynchburg
nd Roanoke to Durham and Wlnston
alem will be met by th* same re
mtions from the other Virginia
ltles, unless, ln the meantlme, tho
'orfolk and Western Railway should
ppeal from the decision nf tho Inter
tate- Ommeree Comrnisslon and take
he matter into the courts. as a ro
uction ln the rates from Lynchburg
nd Roanoke to Durham and Wlnston
alem would lnvolvo a rcduction from
hose points, and therefore from all
fthe other Vlrglnla citles, to a large
