(By Associated Press) Attorneys for j the railroads and for the shippers gave oral argument, before the i Interstate Commerce Commission today at hearings on the proposed reduction of freight rate, on grn "d hay, the former arguing that a reduction would throw many western roads into bankruptcy. Attorney, for the shippers declared that production would be les ! sened and the roads would uf fer from reduced traffic, if the preent rates were continued. R. H. Widdicombe, attorney for the Chicago Northwestern said assertions that present rates would result in a decreased acreage next year were "very speculative." Prices, he added, were governed by supply and demand and not by freight rates. The present low prices for grain were due, he said, to reduced exports as a result of conditions in Europe. J. N. Davia, representing the Chicago, MUwaukee and St Paul, replying to questions asked early in the hearing as to whether the roads should forego a S 1-2 per cent return and give a helping hand , to the farmer, the speaker said: The t 'ns-MTtHtnm sslein not fnly baa Its rate regulated, but a nuJT por tion nf Ita oK-rutina evenses rraulul'il by BovermncnVsarncli'S and In no iusc under present law ran the lransMHta , tin cofiswy earn for Itself a greater r-( turn than I I J per rent.
