From Points as Far at but the The public utilities commission has been notified that Iced refrigerator cars will not be given preference over dry refrigerators where the shipper loads with apples and potatoes or other pro ducts that are not Immediately perish able. Joel L. Priest. Idaho agent for the Oregon Short Line railroad, trans mitted this information to the commis sion under Instructions from Superin tendent Reeves and other officials of the road. It is also r enounced that th > Oregon Short Line lias Issued orders permitting tIv phipm< 'f cull apples In box cars from points h.i far east as Twin Falls and west as Welser to Mer Idlnn to supply the driers in operation the at the latter place. This order will save many thousands of dollars to the growers plnnning to place their culls with the drier. ADVANTAGE TAKEN. '■It has always been a rule that an feed refrigerator car had preference over a dry car because of the fact only perishable products are shipped in iced cars," said Mr. Priest. "This rule was established because of the supposition ♦hat a shipper desiring, we shall say for Illustration, to pay $45 for icing of n car to Chicago, had a perishable product for shipment. "However, it was not supposed that orders would be placed for Iced cars for the shipping of such products as are not immediately perishable as has been the case recently since the short .•yvc in cars became serious. Shippers Knowing of the rule that Iced cars had preference placed orders for such cars. Our company has had that rule broken and hereafter during the shipping of the products from this state there will be no preference shown in the matter of refrigerator cars." TO CONSERVE CROP. The complaint against showing preference in Iced refrigerators poured Into the public utilities commission during the week. Skippers said that orders they had placed for cars days ago had not been filed, while èther shippers ordering iced cars had been given preference. This was held to he unfair. The matter was called to the attention of the Short Line offi cials and the Pacific Fruit Express company which supplies most of the southern Idaho territory 1 with refrig erator rolling stock. It Is believed that the order of the Short Line permitting the use of box cars for the shipment of cull apples to the driers at Meridian will greatly ter be at the Jr., in Is 9 assist that industry as well as make j available thousands of tons of apples j thnt otherwise would go to waste.

The executive committee of the «täte council of defense, which has been re organized, moved Wednesday night to place the council on a permanent and substantial basis. The committee de cided that the council's secretary, Joseph Hansen, should be paid a sal ary of $200 per month and that ho should be given the assistance of a stenographer at a salary of $80 per month. The following resolution'relating to the compensation of members of the council was approved: "Be it resolved that It Is the sense of the executive committee of the state council of defense that no members ot the state council of defense shall secure any compensation from the funds pro vided for the council for services rend ered in Its behalf other than order re lnbursement for expenses actually in curred, items of expense to be audited by the executive committee before be ing paid.
