"v Railroad men connected with lines op rated west of the Missouri river arc dls t'polntcd In the decision of the Inter-' tdtp Commerce commission denying the indication to advance freight rates on jiitatoes shipped from western Nebraska " Mississippi river common points and rond. They say the application was nude because the rates on this conunod u were unreasonably low as compared i ith those on other shipments, being no more thnn those on Kraln. that icqiiirc little care and attention. According to the nay the railroad men ttwd the decision they are still forced to haul Nebraska iotatoes at a loss, while those hauled fiom Colorado to the Mis souri river pay a fair profit. They say that potatoes from the vicinity of liree ley. Colo., pay a rate of 36 cents per 100 pounds, while those hauled from the Al liance and Scott's niuff section of Ne braska pay but 17 cents per 100 pounds, though the distance Is practically the same. Pome years ago In order to encourasre tho raising of potatoes In western Ne braska tho railroads put In a 20-cent rer 100 pounds rate to the Missouri river. The rate had Its effect and the farmers went Into potato raising extensively, thousands of carloads being raised and shipped out annually from territory along the Cnlon Pacific, Burlington and Northwestern They came to Omaha and on account of tho low freight rate and the enormous j supply this city beintne one of the larg lest and best potato markets In the orld. ono firm alone annually handling as mam as S.iW carloads from the sand hill sec tion of the state. This was done on the :-rent pet U pounds rate. Subsequently the Nebraska legislature passed the Aldrhh hill, limit ing a blanket I eduction of 15 per cent on numerous commodities. Including pota toes. This broiighX the rate on potatoes down to 1" cents per 100 pounds. It was this rate that the railroads sought to ad vance In order that it would be In line with rates elsewhere.
