Round T3. Square Bale.
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.
