Railroads Cited to Show Cause
Why There Should Be No
Washington. December 1?.?On the
ground that the Durham and Southern
Hail road, owned by B. N. and J. B.
Duke, of the American Tobacco Com?
pany, receives for a twcnty-milo haul
40 per cent, uf the Seaboard Air Line's
division on through freight business,
the latter railroad will be cited be
for the ? Interstate Coromoroo Com?
mission to show cause why its rales
into and out of Durham, N. C. should
not bo reduced.
The Norfolk and W?rtern Railroad
also will be cited to shesw why Its
rates on coal Into Durham should not
be lowered. The Norfolk and Western,
it Is charged, allows 62 cants a ton to
the Durham and South Carolina Hall
road, a lumber road, for a haul of ono
mile, while It receives only 77 cents
a ton for a haul of 116 miles.
The Interstate Commerce Commis?
sion, through Commissioner Lano,
charges another Uno "bought" the
freight business of the American To?
bacco Company by allowing its traffic
to be taken away from it at one point
by a road undor a management allied
with the tobacco company.
Commissioner Latie says:
"If thero Is 11 over and above the
artuol cost of transportation In (he
40 per oont. division which the Dur
hnm and Southern gete. It goes Into
the pockets of the Dukes. It Is not
n rebate given to the American Tobac?
co Company, but confessedly Is nn ad?
vantage growing out of the relation
between the Dukes and the tobacco In?
terests, for if the Dukos did not havo
the freight to route, the traffic man?
ager of the Seahoard Buys that no such
arrangement would have been made.
Blue Ridge Springs, Va., December
IS.?A narrow escapo from Instant
death occurred on tho branch road
