WASHINGTON. April 19. Viotor
Morawetz, of the Atchison, Topekx &
Santa Fe Railroad, again was before.the
Senate committee on' interstate commerce
Replying to questions by Senator
Dolliver, Mr. Morawctz. said that the
executive committee a'nd hoard ot di
rectors "never know . anything: about
the details of traffic management. They

"Where traffic managers violate the
law in -granting: rebates and. discrimi
nations to one shipper, do you not
think it -would he right -to compel the
road to give all shippers the low
rate?" asked Senator Dolliver.-
"In many cases It would be right,
and in others unjust," replied Mr.
Morawetz. "It would not be right to
make stockholders suffer because some
agent had committed a wrong."
Senator Dolliver questioned Mr.
Morawetz about the agreements be
tween companies as to rates. The
latter replied that they were not
The railroads, he said, talked things
over and reached an understanding as
10 what rates would be from com
petitive points. He said these rates
were fixed on a remunerative basis.
Senator Dolliver asked why inter
mediate points were compelled to pay
higher rates than the competitive
points. Mr. Morawetz replied that the
railroads were compelled to accept low
rates at competitive points. He main
tained that the intermediate .points
were really benefited by such action.
In reply to a question by Senator Dol
liver. Mr. Morawetz explained the charges
regarding the granting .of rebates by the
Atchison to the Colorado Fuel & Iron
Company. He said that the alleged rebate
grew out of confusion of the cost of trans
portation and the cost of coal. The Atch
ison filed with the Interstate Commerce
Commission a rate of $4.0j from the mine
to the point of intersection with any road
which was controlled by Phelps, Dodge &
Co.. the coal consignors. As a matter
of fact, he said, the rate was $2.00 per
ton. and the difference of $1.15 per ton
was paid to the Colorado Fuel & Iron
Company for the coal. The road collected
the price of the coal and the cost ot
transportation at the point of delivery.
It was alleged that the payment of $1.15
to the Colorado Company was a rebate,
when, as a matter of fact, he said, no
rebate was paid. No Interest, he stated,
suffered by the act of the company. No
body connected with the Atchison system
had any interest in' the Colorado Fuel &
Mr. Morawetz said that when the pres
ent management of the Atchison road
took control of the system It Included
various coal companies, the stock of
which was owned by the original rail
road company. The new management de
cided that the railroad must go out of
the coal business. The Atchison then
leased all the coal mines In Its system.
In 2901 there was a three-cornered -arrangement,
to which the Atchison. Colo
rado Fuel &. Iron Company, and Phelps,
Dodge & Co., controlling the El Paso &
Southern Rajlroad, were parties. Under
the terms- of the agreement the Colorado
Fuel & Iron Company was to furnish coal
at $1.33 per ton and the Atchison was to
haul it for $2.90 per ton, the Atchison
to collect the price of the coal and pay
the $1.15 over to the Colorado Company.
The agreement was to last five years. But
in 1902 injunctions were granted restrain
ing the various companies from continu
ing this buslneps. The complaint arose
over a mistake about the combination of
the $4.65 which the road collected, an al
legation being made that this did not
include the price of the coal, and that re
bates were given. No other shipper could
be affected,- because Phelps, Dodge & Co.
had to have the coal which was supplied
hy the- Colorado company. The whole
case arose over a confusion of the cost
of coal with the cost of transportation.
Senator Dolliver asked as to the report
that the Atchison had paid to the Stand
ard Oil Company $17,000,000 in rebates in
Kansas. Mr. Morawctz said that he felt
authorized to deny the statement that
any rebate was given by the Atchison to
In answer to Senator Newlands, Mr.
Morawetz said that in several states there
were commissions with power to fix rates.
At tlmc6 the. Atchison road had .suffered
from interference and was saved from
annihilation by the United States courts.
He said no commission could have the
wisdom to fix rates for the entire coun
try. Mr. Newlands asked a series of ques
tions to support his contention for the
nationalization of railroads.
Senator Cullom, addressing Mr. New
lands, asked: "Arc you getting ready to
"buy all these roads?" . '

In view of this likely reorganization
there is every assurance that the Pa

WASaC. MORTON SUMMONED.
Democrats Say He Knows All About
Santa Fe Rebates.
WASHINGTON. April ID. (Special.) It
developed, tonight that a determined ef
fort has been m&de to have Secretary
Morton summoned by the Senate Inter
state Commerce "Committee to glvo testi
mony oh-the matter of rebates. Senator
Carmack' brought the matter up last Mon
day In. executive meeting. He urged that
Mr. Morton, who was vice-president and
general manager, of the Santa Fe sys
tem when rebates were paid; should be
questioned on the subject.
Senator Elkins objected -on the ground
that no purpose could be sefcved by ex
amining Mr. Morton, and that It might
pirove injurious to a. cabinet minister.
Quite a lively discussion occurred, but
the proposition was rejected by a strict
party vote, the Republicans opposing it
and the Democrats favoring It. It Is said
to be the. intention ot the Democrats to
bring the subject Up again and-seek to
have Mr. Morton brought before the com
