AXL OF h EASTERN OREGON TO
COMBINE IN FIGHT.
Better Rate Facilities War Comment
, ed at Baker La Grande to Aid. '
' (Baker Herald.)
At a meeting of the board of direc
tors of the Commercial club this af
ternoon a movement to combine east
ern Oregon in the battle to secure
equitable rates on the railroads will
be launched. Members of the trans
portation! committer at a previous
meeting decided that It would be wis
er to ask the railroad commission to
postponed the hearing for September
29 until a later date as would give
eastern Oregon an, opportunity to
gather data and evidence and make a
strong case. r ' -
It Is expected that Medford, Which
la leading the fight In the western
part of the state for better and more
equitable freight rates as Baker la
in the eastern part, will co-operate In
this mo'vement to have the hearing de
layed. ', -;
It w(Jl also be decided to send a
representative from the local club to
visit La Grande . and , Pendleton and
secure the ro-operatlpn of the com
mercial clubs of those two cities In
the fight for lower rates. This will
In all probability result in the forma
tion of a traffic league or similar or
ganization for Eastern Oregon to
stand guard over the Interests of this
part of the state in the matter of
freight rates. ,
The action of the commission In
calling these hearings Is the result
of the campaign that Baker launched
sometime ago. Medford la following
thts up and has called a convention of
shippers of the. entire state to take
place at Salem some tlm In Septem
ber. ! ' ' .
It Is the plan for, the three Eastern
Oregon cities to employ a rate ex
pert and to make a complete and ex
haustive Investigation Into the whole
rate situation so that when the hear
ing Is called by the railroad comtnls-
