Shippers Along Branch
Lines Make Appeals to
the State Public Utilities
Protests have already been regis
tered with the public utilities commis
sion against the decision and an
nouncement of the Oregon Short Dine
Railway company reducing train serv
ice on seme of Its branen Unes. The
commission has taken cognizance of
these protests and taken the matter
up with the Short Dine officials at Salt
Dake. The announcement that the
service would be reduced commencing
tomorrow was made by General Passen
ger Agent D. E. Burley. The order
was to the effect that on that date
service on the branch between Rich
field and Hill City, would be changed
from dally to trl-weekly; that the
motor service on the branch between
Minidoka and Bliss would be discon
tinued; that the mixed train and mo
tor service between the two last named
points would be consolidated. A sin
gle mixed train will be operated dally
except Sunday.
The Oregon Short Dine announced
the change Is made following a re
trenchment policy. The complaints be
fore the commission come from the
Hill City branch. The greatest In
convenience they say that the change
will work upon them will be caused
from the fact that Instead of getting
mall daily they will only get It every
other day. They say this will Interfere
and work damage on their business. It
is understood that the passenger serv
Ice Is very light on this branch as well
as the Mlnldoka-BUss, but the freight
sere ice on the former Is heavy. Ship
pers there declare that the freight
service warrants the Short Dine keep
ing the old schedule and not cutting
down the train service.

that the Oregon Short Dine Is follow

freight. Is usually quvte light at this
time of the year and for that reason the
railroad does not secure the traffic it
does other months in the year. Dast
year the Short Dine followed the same
policy, reducing, for Instance, the serv
Ice on the Yellowstone branch with the
result that shippers at St. Anthony and
other points entered a vigorous protest
■w ith the commission and the matter
was later taken up and adjusted.

however, the traffic of the Short Dine
reachee such proportions that the road
finds It difficult to meet the demand
for rolling stock requested In all of
Its territory In the southern half of
Idaho. In fact, last year there waa for
a time a very serious shortage and It
required general activity on the part
of the comrfilsslon. shippers and the

Not in Conflict With the
Plank Against Subsidy.
Washington, May 18.—The state
ment that William J. Bryan, deliberate
ly approved of the tolls exemption
plonk of the Democratic platform as
a member of the subcommittee on reso
lutions which prepared the platform,
was made In the senate today by Sen
ator Walsh of Montana, secretary of
the subcommittee. Senator Walsh ds
cloTod that oj>en repudiation of a sol
emn covenant by a political party would
cause all to recoil from it with hor
ror. were It proposed by any other man
than the president of the United States.
"For myself. Its moral aspects assume
no different hue because he commends
it," added Walsh. As a substitute for
the repeal bill Senator Walsh urged
the adoption of former President Taft's
proposal to submit the controversy to
the supreme court.
The Montana senator took up at
length the Baltimore platform because
he said It had been intimated that the
tolls plonk had (been inserted surrep
titiously, "When the tolls plank was
presented," said Senator Walsh, "Mr.
Bryan expresaed his approval but said
It should be accompanied by another
plank declaring against the admission
of railroad owned ships to the canal,
and this was done."
Senator Walsh said he had no temp
tation to escape from the trammels of
the rlatform on the puerile suggestion
that the plank was contradicted by an
other against subsidies. "Why, In that
view, the canal Itself Is a subsidy to
shipping Interests.. Why did we spend
$400,000,000 to build It, except to aid
the shipping interests?'* asked Walsh.
