G. F. Richardson, superinten 'lent of transportation for the railroad will -soon arrive in Oregon to take cave of the ear distribution problem that is threatening to kill and cripple many Oregon industries. 1 he letter was sent to (.'ommissiouer Miller, who recently wrote to President" Sproule, asking that action he taken to help relieve the situation. The letter states that Mr. Tiichardson will work with Assistant General Manager Dyer to meet the suggestions of the eommis- tm. The communication to Commissioner Miller states: "It has been our effort to supply Oregon to the limit of our lawful abil ity from- cars available. Unfortunate ly it is a problem far beyond Oregon or the Southern Pacific; but if a plan is lcvised to give us back our cars the problem will be largely solved. ."The new cars we ordered for 101(1 delivery and which were far behind time because of difficulty in obtaining materials, have been absorbed in the business. It is impossible to obtain de livery of any further ears except at some remote and indefinite date. We have therefore undertaken to build the cars ourselves of wooden construction with steel silts to sustain the burden . and carry the draft gear, and already j the question is actively before us of i how to get. the lumber for prompt- eon-! stritetinn. We are doing this mainly: so that soon as the car is built it will he turned into the huuds o'f the shipper I to load. Our greatest, interest- is to i provide cars. We cannot earn freight chnriies from shipments unmoved. "Our car distribution bureau in Port land is in charge of a man w ho has al- j ways been effective. In fact the good j work already done by him was the reus-1 on for his selection, together with his personal knowledge of the shippers'! wants because of the line of his prov ides experience. You know from tho hearings of the commission how diffi-j cult it is to reconcile the wants of the conflicting interests among the ship-1 pers themselves. ! "Indeed we would welcome the. as-! signnient. by the commission of a compo-j lent member of its staff to share thoj office of the car distributor and collab-1 orate with them for a period satisfact ! cry to the commission for the purpose ot determining ill what respects our car improved "We wish to meet the views of the1 commission that no charge of dis-! crimination.
