Newspaper Men Must Pay Cash Fares When Traveling Over Railroad Lines Protest Had Been Raised Against Ruling, But Futile. Washington, Oct. 28. Under a titl ing of the Interstate commerce com mission, transportation over railroad llnus no longer may be given to news paper publishers or editors In ox chnngo for advertising space In their newspapers. A protest against this ruling has been received by tho commission from the Massachusetts Press Association, through W. J. Ileffortnau, secretary. In Mr. Ilefferiuan's cotiniuitilc.it Ion he says that the association unani mously voted to enter protest against the reported ruling in holding that tho payment for railroad transportation at full rates In advertising shall ho treat ed on any other basis than that of transportation paid for In cash. In a letter to Secretary Hefferman in answer to the protest Chairman Knapp says , In part, after quoting the question of the law wlilc'.l prohibits tho use of free transportation or trans portation paid for In any other way than in cash: "You, of course, nre aware that nil tariffs filed In compliance with ilio regulating statute namo rates on tho dollar nnd cent basis and do no- n. at y case provide that transportation cat' bo paid for with proporty. It seems plain to tho commission Mint tho 'aw ibovo quoted, collided with the l..ct stated, permits payment for iwrxlci.. of Interstate carriers jiily In i;.i'ii y "A contrary rate would sanction un equal compensation by different per ions anil involve ordinarily home de cree of discrimination In favor of thoso permitted to exchange their commod ities for the transportation thoy de sire to receive. It Is the aid of the law to prevent every sort of favorit ism and secure absolute equality and treatment In all cases. "Tho ruling of the commission in no way Interferes with or abridges the rights of private contracts. News papers and thplr advertising space muy be freely exchanged for any spe cies of property upon such terms as may be acceptable to tho parties to the transaction, but tho facilities of the public carrier are not private prop orty. nor, aro they subject of bargains ind sale, llko merchandise. The right to travel or have property carried by rail, llko the right to tho common high way, Is not a contract right but a po litical right, the very essence or which Is equality. Conceding that tho advertising ar rangements in question are ordinarily made and carried out In good faith, it scorns plain to mo that theso arrange ments must, as a practical matter. In volvo some measures of discrimination mil it is not easy for mo to see how in honest newspaper can seriously ob ject to a ruling or tno commission which appenrs to be in obvious accord wltn tho provlslona and tho purposes or the rogulutlng statutes" Congressman at Death's Door.
