THE ASSOCIATION MAKING VEKY
SLOW PROGRESS IN RETURN
ING TO 1914 RATES
Interstate Commerce Commission Has
Not Pa>sed on It« Although It is
Now a Year Old
The Idaho Freight Rate Reduction
Association which has the matter up
with the railroads and the state pub
lic utilities commission of a general
reduction of freight rates in the state,
back to the 1914 level and an emer
gency rate on coal into the state and
potatoes, hay, grain and fruits out of
the state until the freight rate matter
can be readjusted, finds itself com
ing in contact with set rules and reg
ulations established by the state
board of public utilities and the in
terstate commerce commission which
prove n severe handicap.
The state public utilities coramta
sion expressed willingness to co-op
erate wtlh the association and took
the matter up by wire with railroad
executives, particularly in the matter
of the emergency rate on coal Into
the state, bringing out the fact that
the people of Southern Idaho,
throughout many localities have suf
fered and will suffer this winter on
account of the high price of coal. The
railroad companies take refuge be
hind a statement of the Interstate
commerce commission to the effect
that no action can be taken on the
present request until a similar re
quest made last March has been de
cided. In other wo rtfs the matter has
been before the interstate commerce
commission almost a year with no de
cision or action of any kind.
It Is conditions of this kind that the
freight rate reduction association
hopes to correct.
The admission is made on the part
of the railroad companies that the
freight rates charged are too high
and refuge Is taken in the statement
that the railroads are not In position
to help themselves.
The object of the freight rate re
duction association Is to gather euch
data and information that will make
It possible to make a showing that

If the organization is unable to se
cure direct results the matter will be
taken up direct with the state legis
lature and members of the Idaho
congressional delegation In Washing
It has been clearly shown to thn
mind of any reasonable person that
there must be a reduction In freight
rates If business conditions through
iout southern Idaho are to make a
change for the better any time soon.
The people of this section of the state
are thoroughly In earnest and have
determined to rid themselves of this
heavy charge which Is acting as a
handicap to business development and
expect to accomplish that result
through the medium of the recently
