Mr. Tnnlanillnglmm Clearly Shows the
Unrenionnhlciicss of Omaha's Claim
on tho Ti'Xis Ilntss There Is
No ! rliulnntlon.
Tho hearing ot cases by the Interstate
commerce commlslon was resumed In tho
Commercial Club rooms jesterday morn
ing. The Wichita caso having been dl-
posed of the day before, there was nothing
left for tho commltteo except the Omaha
case, which consumed the time until 4 30
In tho nfternoon, when the cose was hastily
closed and the members of the commission i
and their stenographers left for Chicago.
The technical title of tho Omaha case '
was "Tho Commercial Club of Omaha vs.
tin) Rock Island Bnllro.id Company et al." '
In reality, however, the case was Omaha
vs. Kansas City, and was only a reiteration
of the petition of Omaha, made periodically
for the past six vears, for an equalization
of the rates from Texas to Kansas City
und Omaha on cattle and hog and a few
other Inconsiderable commodities.
Tho lapld growth of Kansas City as a
packing center and live stoclc market, nnd
the conespondlng decrease of Omaha'b
pncklng and live stock business, have
alarmed the business men of the up-river
city, nnd they have sjstematlcally en
deavond to secure hy unreisonaule ad
vantages In rates what they fall to secure
by their natural disadvantages of location
The hearing of the Omaha side of tho
case wus had earlier In the week, nnd tho
Kansas City side was heard jesterday.
Theie was In attendance jesterday quite a
number of railroad men and shippers, and
tho cae was a very Interesting one St.
Joseph, whose Interests are almost Identi
cal with thoso ot Kansas City In the peti
tion made, was represented by 1'. W Max
well, secretary of the Commercial Club of
that city Omaha was represented by John
H. Utt, ot the transportation bureau: John
S Knox, tr.uflo nnnngor of the Cudnhy
Packing Company, W. W Babcock, man
ager of tho Omaha tock arils nnd W. D.
Mcllugh, attorney for the Omaha Com
mercial Club A J. Vanlandlngham, com
missioner of the transportation bureau,
represented Kansas City shippers In gen
eral and Kansas City lallroads; rrank
Cooper represented the Live Stock ex
change, nnd O II, Dean represented the
The testlmonj showed that the rate on
live stfjck from Texas tn Omaha Is from B
to C cents per 100 pounds In excess of the
rates from the same points to Kansas City,
making the carload rnto .about W SO to
Omaha against $72 M to Kansas Cltv. a
difference, of $13 20 In favor of Kansas Cltv
One of the bet witnesses called. was A C
Halle, of St Lruls general freluht agent
of the Missouri, Kansas & Texas Mr
Halle stated that his road biought its
Texas cattle to Kansas City, nnd when
they were destined for Omaha they vvero
turned over to tho Burlington, nnd that
the "Katy" pild the Burlington 120 per
enr for carrying the shipments to the lat
ter point making a rate greater than the
standing difference of the through carload
rates between Kansas Cltv and Omaha.
Mr Halle discussed the Tcxuh situation
very Intelligently, nnd. more than any one
else showed the unreasonable character
of Omaha's claim.
Little was made of Mr. Halle by the pros,
ecution In the cross-examination He ad
mitted that on some commodities dis
tances wire practically Ignored, and that
nt one time the "Katv" had threatened
to put in tho Kansas City rato to Omiha
It the local packers did not glvo that roa 1
a larger proportion of business This point,
however, was set down as a legitimate war
measure and was not regarded as indica
tive of a Just equalization in the evlden.ee
Mr. Knox undertook, by cleverly i-elected
points from various rate sheets, to prove
that the railroads are In a conspiracy to
help Kansas Cltv, to the detriment f
Omaha. He was discouraged by Chairman
Morrison of the commission, who told
him that tho only Usuo at stake was not
the equity or Injustice of the rates made
by the railroads, and that the effect of
thosM rates upon one place or another
could not he considered outside of those
limits. CTialrman Morrison also suggested
that as the Hoi k Uland has a line from
Texas to both Kansas Cltj and Omaha,
that the Omaha shippers come to terms
with their through connection But It
was admitted by the Omaha parties that
they had been unable to treat with
the Itock Island.
Tho leading witness of the afternoon was
A. J Vanlandlngham, who '& to thor
oughly poated on rates that ho could not
be cornered, even though he was qucb
tloned and eross-questloned with a per
sistency that would have muddled a less
thoroughly posted man. Instead of show
ing discrimination against Omaha. Mr.
Vanlandlngham showed that If there Is
discrimination tt Is the other way. He
showed a map representing the common
territory and what might bo called the
exclusive territory of Omaha and Kansas
City. A lino drawn from Omaha a little
noith of weft, and one from Kansas City
a little south of west showed Kansas
Cltj's natural territory hlng to tho south,
Omaha's to the north and the common tor.
rltor of both cities Ijlng between. He
sud that It would be as reasonable for
Kansab City to ask Omaha rates from the
Dakotas an fur Omaha to ask Kansas City
rates from Texas As an Illustration of
existing equities, he showed that the rates
and dllference between rates from Blfa
mark, S. D,, to Kansas City and Omaha
aie Just the same as the rates and differ
ences of rates from Port Worth to Kansas
City and Omaha. Bismark l the same dls.
tunce from Omaha that Fort Worth is
from Kansas City.
Messrs. Frank Cooper and J. C. McCoy
were the other witnesses called In the
forenoon, but there was nothing new In
Briefs In the case are promised within
thirty davs and the hearing of the argu
