Mr. Alec Johnson of the North
•western was thunderstruck the
other day to learn that immigrants
were being charged extra freight
upon arrival at their destination
after having prepaid their freight
at the point of shipment. He
declared that this matter had
never come to his attention and
suggested to the railroad commis
sioners, before whom he appeared,
that the trouble grows out of mis
takes made by the agents in ac
cepting less than the amount due
at the point from which shipment
is made. He assured the board
that this abuse would be corrected
at once. Twenty-five years ago
Fred Rowe, now of Fort Pierre,
shipped from a Minnesota town to
Volga, South Dakota, over the
Northwestern. He prepaid his
freight, but the Volga agent charg
ed him twenty dollars additional
freight before allowing the car to
be unloaded. A quarter of a cen
tury is a long time, time enough it
would seem for even the North
western railroad to find out some
thing about its operating depart
ment. But Mr. Johnson has just
learned of the fact that additional
charges are made. He tells the
commissioners that this is probab
ly due to the length of time requir
ed for matters to reach his office
from the local agents. We have
Iiad some experience with the
claim department of the road, and
usually it gets around to a claim
in the course of a year or so. If
it takes twenty-five years for a
matter to get up to the office of
the general freight agent, we will
probably get the new tariff schedule
that the road has promised some
time about the middle of the cen
tury. By that time we will have
leen gathered home to a land where
freight rates will not break the
harmony of the perfect day.
The state board of railroad com
missioners is a benevolent body
organized for the purpose of giv
ing enthusiastic young men an op
portunity to save their country
from corporate greed. This def
inition covers the whole scope of
the commission's activities. Some
have been so unkind as to suggest
that the board serves no useful
purpose, but it does. If young
men, eager to serve their country,
had no chance to express their
views upon the great transporta
tion problems, they might explode
with considerable damage to iitao
cent bystanders. We are in favor,
of two railroad commissions, (me
in each end of the stale. The ses
sions should be continuous, sd that
