Washington, Oct. 19. The fight be tween the round and the square bale cotton compress companies came be fore the Inter-State Commerce Com mission to-day upon arguments ori the complaint of the Planters' Compress Company (round bale) against thirteen railroads carrying cotton between St. Louis and the New England cotton mills, alleging "unjust, unreasonable, injurious and prohibitive" rates on round bale cot ton between points in that territory. Because a standard car can carry 50, 000 pounds of round bales and but 25,000 pounds of square bale cotton the roads formerly charged twenty cents a hundred pounds between St. Louis and New York for round bales, while square bales paid thirty ents. About a year ago, however, the rate on round ' bales was increased to thirty cents, which increase the Planters' Company contends is un just, discriminating and in violation of the Inter-State Commerce Act. The Commission reserved its decision. mum m vmmo m vu u x& u uu u tyftM? fluty? . U 1 II ! II J M 3 Life is not so short but there is al ways time for courtesy.
