COMMISSION HEARS CASE
Attorney for Livestock and Other
Shippers Springs Surprise at In
quiry Missouri Pacific Offi
cial's Know ledge Nil.
CHICAGO. Sept. 26. Indirect charges
that the railroads in the West were
violating the Elkins anti-rehate law
and favoring certain shippers, charging
the alleged rebates to "damage ac
counts." were made before the Inter
state Commerce Commission at today'.-;
session of the hearing into the advisa
bility of allowing Western roads to
make a general raise in freight rates.
Clifford Thorne. representing live
stock and other shippers, made the im
plication while questioning C. J. Mc
Pherson, assistant general manager of
the Missouri Pacific Railroad.
The colloquy .began with Mr. Thorne'3
"To what account were rebates
charged prior to 1904 V
Rebate Knowledge Nil.
"I know nothing of rebates," re
plied the witness. "I do not know that
rebates ever were given."
"What I want to find out." persisted
Mr. Thorne, "is tills: Is it possible
that rebates still are given as they
were then and charged to damage ac
counts or similar accounts? I want
to find out what the procedure was
then, to see if it still is followed, and
I am invariably met with the answer.
'I don't know," from men whose ve.-v
business it Is to know."
Attorney Jeffreys, representing th.
railroad, Interposed with the inquiry:
"May I learn to what end you are.
"Certainly." retorted Mr. Thorne. "In
your railroad's damage accounts, the
same as in others, there has been
startling Increases since 1904. with no
satisfactory explanation. The Elkins
bill was passed in 1901. I have nioro
than hearsay advice that there is 4.
connection between these damage ac
counts and rebates. I want to find out
If rebates still are being given."

Previous to this the shippers hai
intimated to the Commission that they
would enter no evidence, but wouid
rest their case on claim that t he rail
roads had failed to show basis for an
increase of rates.
Assistant General Manager McPher

physical value of that road was far
above the capitalization $143,000,000

E. B. Boyd, assistant vice-president
of the Missouri Pacific Railroad, after
some questioning, said lie believed :i
surplus, if taken from dividend earn
ings, should be allowed the railroad
from income and said he thought it
should be used the same as borrowed
capital, upon which interest and divi
dends should be accumulated.
Chester M. Dawes, attorney for the
Chicago, Burlington & Quincy, opened
the case for his road with statistics
similar to those submitted by other
railroads, by which he hoped to show
that his road was unable to pay a fair
return on its value as judged by taxes
paid. Increased cost of labor, fuel
and maintenance, he said, were to
blame for the conditions he pictured.
