IOWA RAILWAY EXTORTION CASES.
aTodgv Shlras Practically lecides That the
Flalntiffs Hare No Standi.
Dubuque, la,, June 17. The hearing
of the extortion cases against the rail
roads ended rather abruptly yesterday.
Alter hearing the argument Judge
Shlras overruled the demurrer of the
plaintiff, holding that the fact that the
schedule of rates complained of had
been established and published under
the provisions of the interstate com
merce law was conclusive as to its rea
sonableness. In actions of this kind, he
said, the schedule must be controllcj.
No offer of proof that it is unreasonable
can be accepted, for it is itself .tho
standard of reasonableness untif such
time as It Is modified by the interstate
commerce commission.
If any shipper considers the schedule
too high his remedy lies, not in a suit
for extortion but in a petition to the
interstate commerce commission for a
modification of the schedule. Judse
Shlras announced that the same order
would be made in some of the remain
Ins cases, in order that all may be taken
to the circuit court of appeals without
delay. This court will hear th matter
at St. Iouis or St. Paul. All the cases
stand on the Fame ground, as it Is not
denied that the rates charged were thus?
established and published..
