C. lowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin and South Dakota Get Raises at Same Time FLICKERTAIL CUT $5,000,000 Board Chairman Says Nsw Structure Removes Long- Existing Discrimination North Dakota has achieved the greatest freight rate victory in its his tory as a result of the recent decision of the interstate commerce commis sion covering interstate class freight rates, C. W. McDonnell, president of the state board of railroad commis sioners, said today. Although the general effect of the new rates is an increase of about $17,000,000 a year in lowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin and eastern South Dakota, a reduction of approximately $5,000,- 000 a year will be effected in North Dakota’s freight bill, according to Mc- Donnell. The case decided by the Interstate commerce commission covers all Inter state class rates in the territory be tween Chicago and the North Dakota- Montana state line, as well as all points east of Chicago and this terri tory. Removal of “long-existing discrim ination against North Dakota" Is seen in the new rates by McDonnell. This is brought about, he said, by providing generally “very substantial reductions to North Dakota and increases in other states, which have preferential rates.” “For example," he continued, “from Chicago to Jamestown the preeent first class rate la $2.16*4 per 100 pounds, whereas the new first rate will be $1.83,/or a reduction of 33 V 4 cents per 100 pounds. Bismarck Favored “At Bismarck the first class rate from Chicago is now $2.43 >4, whereas the new rate will be $2, a reduction of 43% cents. From Chicago to Bt. Paul the first class rate will be increased from 98 cents to $1.24 per 100 pounds. “It has been the policy of the north ern lines to charge the full combtna-i tion ever the Twin Cities into North Dakota and to grade up rapidly tho rates out of the Twin Cities immedi ately west of the Minnesota stats line,” McDonnell said. “Prior to the Minnesota rate case in 1907 the rates in Minnesota, eastern South Dakota and North Dakota were on approxi mately the same level; but, on account of legislative faction in Minnesota and South Dakota, reductions in their rates were made, with no correspond ing reduction in the rates to North Dakota.
