Railroad men connected with lines op

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

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.
