Complaint Against Western Pa
cific Is Heard by Rail"
road Commission
Tariff on Syrup, Sugar, Flour
• and Canned Goods Subject
of Inquiry
The complaint of certain shippers of
Alturas against . the Western Pacific
railway was heard yesterday before the
state railroad commission. The full
board. ■ consisting of Commissioners
Loveland and Gordon, was In
'ttendanee. The case was submitted
and decision will be rendered later.
The complaint. is directed again cer
tain commodity rates between San
Francisco and Alturas. Instituted by
the Western Pacific tinder a recently
amended tariff. The new rates con
tained reductions for the most part,
but in certain instances provided for
tdvances. It is against these advances
that protests have been entered.
Special objection was made to the
new rates on such articles as syrup,
sugar, flour and canned goods. The
syrup tariff had been $1.65 per 100
pounds. This was decreased to 75
cents, but raised under the amended
schedule to 85 cents. Sugar,* which had
carried a rale of $1.65, was dropped to
SO cents and later moved up to 90
cents. Flour was cut' from $2.25 to
75 cents and then raised to 81 cents.
Canned goods, reduced from $1.65. to
90",', cents, has been placed at $1.05.
Senator Shanahan appeared for the
Alturas shippers and Attorney Matthew
for the tVestern Pacific,
It developed that the freight from
here to Alturas is carried as far as
Doyle and Legan on the Western Pa
cific and'from there to destination on
the Nevada, California and Oregon
railway. For its part of the haul the
latter line received 40 per cent of the
full tariff.
H. M. Adams, freight traffic manager
of the Western Pacific, was the only
witness examined. On behalf of the
Western Pacific the argument was ad
vanced that freights- had been generally
lowered and conditions Improved
through Its entry into the mountain
country. This fact was admitted by,
Phanahan for the protesting shippers.
Following this hear ing the commis
sion held a brief session. Many of the
complaints against Well Fargo were
presented, but put over to the general
hearing on express rates. At that time,

E. A Ho**nbeck appeared for the San
Diego and Cuymaca railroad, asking
that his company be not compelled to
force the collection of. demurrage
charges against Its sheppers. He also
asked for a ruling as to the legality
of special real estate tickets Issued by
his company. Both matters were taken
under advisement and will be referred
to the attorney for the commission.

Defiantly denying her guilt of two
charges of embezzlement lodged

i former book keper of the Adler san

cell at the city prison yesterday that
her former employers are persecuting
her. According to the charges sworn

of the sanatorium. She Is specifically
charged with having failed to account

Altogether. Miss Peters is said by her
former employars to have misappro
priated $1,500 or more during her year

j Republicans Question Sincerity
of Democratic Majority in
Offering Measure
| Amendments to Reciprocity Bill
Suggested by Minority
in House
" WASHINGTON. April 18.—Democratic
leaders are prepared for an attempt by
republicans who oppose Canadian reci
procity to J embarrass the democratic
majority in . the passage of the bill by
proposing an amendment'embodying all
the free | list that the . democratic ways
and means committee has prepared.
Republicans have charged that if the
democrats were , In' earnest to have this
free list passed , they would offer it as
part* of the reciprocity '. bill, so' that
President Taft could 1 find :no occasion
to veto it, even though it did not meet
with his approval. ■
Chairman .; Underwood apparently Is
proceeding on the belief that an amend- |
ment will be offered when the bill
comes up for passage. He said that
such an amendment would be, ruled out
of order,, as *It could i not - be . considered
"germane to the bill", under the.house
rules permitting the offering of amend
ments. "yy -" ..''.-■■■:,'"
The only amendments that can be
considered are. those specifically, affect
ing duties collected in the reciprocity
agreement, and it is expected that on
all such "amendments there will be an
overwhelming negative vote. ■"■
.' An effort is 'to' be made to wind up
the open debate tomorrow night. For
mer Speaker Cannon will speak at the
opening! oft the session tomorrow I and
other speeches are scheduled.-" If Un

Henry George Jr. of New Tork, in his
maiden speech in the reciprocity debate,
proclaimed himself a: free \ trader : and
said that -he : had aligned ' himself with
the | democratic party because |he | be
lieved it was the only I great I partys that
was "moving toward the light."
George indorsed the Canadian agree
ment as tending toward free trade, and
believed ''" eventually - the United 1 States
would have absolute free' trade with
the; world. ' . _ "
.'. His speech, though closely followed i
by democrats and republicans, did not
arouse any enthusiasm on \. the* demo
cratic side. Later. Pickett of lowa used
George's words to show that the demo
cratic party was urging the reciprocity
agreement in the belief that It would
tend toward free: trade.

and Gillette 'of . Massachusetts spoke ; in
favor of the agreement.
