Advance of Freight Ratse
The Southwestern Traffic As
sociation composed of the gen
eral freight agents of the rail
roas operating in the southwest
last week gave notice to the In
terstate Commerce Commission
of an advance of 5 to 10 cents
per hundred pounds on all com
modities shipped from another
state into Texas The rate does
not apply to interstate shipments
between other states than Texas
and hence the motive behind the
move it not clearly revealed Of
course the first object is to ex
tort more money from the public
but just why they tax it all
against Texas is not apparent
Oklahoma for instance gets a
2 cent passenger fare while
Texas pays 3 cents and yet no
advance is made in freights in
Oklahoma to make up the differ
ence Not that we think such an
advance should have been made
On the contrary we think con
ditions do not warrant any ad
vance anywhere and we believe
that a strong protest should go
up from eyery state in the south
west and If it is not made effect
ive before thejrulroads and the
Interstate Commerce Commis
sion should be carried to the
ballot box
There is a strong suspicion
that the motive for charging all
the advance made by the south
western roads to Texas is to pun
this state for the intangible
assets tax and to warn the pub
lic against any further antirail
road legislation If this is the
motive the game will prove a
boomerang The people of
Texas have been not only gpod
but very good to the railroads
They have given them millions
of acres of their best land as
bonuses and have never yet
made them bear their share of
the support of the government
and in no instance hns rmy m
just burden been placdd upon
them If any injustice had been
done them the people of Texas
are fair and honest and an ap
peal to their judgment a d c
of fairness would correct the
evil But this imposition of more
tribute against the already over
burdened and longsuffering
producer of the states wealth
will never frighten him into sub
mission to railroad dictation
