Chairman Prouty, of Interstate
Commerce Body, Think Adjust
ment Will Come When IMs
crimlnatlon Is nerealed.
SALEM. Or, June 1J. (Special.)
Arrangements ha been made for a
meeting- of the executire committee of
the Oregon Woolgrowers" Association
with the State Railroad Commleelon at
Baker. June 20. to discuss the west
bound rates and the difficulties which
are encountered with rates on wool.
Ex-Oovernor Gooding;, of Maho; Vic
tor O. Johnson, of Shoshone. Idaho, rep
presentlnr the National Woolgrowers
Association, and others prominently
connected with wool Interests are ex
pected to be present.
The Railroad Commission has re
ceived a letter from Chairman Prouty.
of the Interstate Commerce Commis
sion, to the effect that the Commission
has not granted any permission for
deviation from Its opinion with re
spect to the classification of the wool
westbound. Railroad companies have
tariffs in violation of the order of the
Interstate Commerce Commission' or
der. This "mix-up" In the rates, aa It Is
termed by the Commission, will be the
subject of discussion at the conference
and It la probable the dlscusstoin will
be of considerable Importance to the
wool Interests of the West.
Pronty Makes Statemrat-
"Wool la classified under the official
classification In carload lots as second
class." writes Chairman Prouty. "As I
remember it it Is classified under the
Western classification as second clans
In sacks and third class In bales, al
though In this Western territory the
third-class rate was usually applied
to the transportation of wool in sacks.
The Commission had considerable
doubt as to the propriety of classifying
wool In sacks as fourth class, but after
careful consideration finally concluded
to do this, naming a minimum of 14,
000 pounds. For your Information I
may say we have received many pro
testa from shippers against this mini
mum, It being- alleged that In many
parts of the West not over 20.000
pounds of sack wool can be loaded Into
a ((-foot car. If we were obliged
later to reduce the minimum we should
probabty at the same time advance the
classification to third class, but testi
mony taken In all sections leaves Mule
doubt In my own mind that with prop
er care In sacking 20.000 pounds can
be loaded.
"When our report was promulgated
transcontinental carriers very earnestly
protested against this fourth-class rate,
but the Commission stated to them
that the matter had been carefully con
sidered and that Its conclusions would
not be modified. They then called at
tention to the fact that the applica
tion of this rating to the movement of
wool westbound had the effect of re
ducing those rates from more distant
points owing to water competition.
They asked that the Commission so
modify Its order as to apply the fourth,
class rating to the eastbound but not
to the westbound movement.
"The charging of a lower rata from
a more distant point Is a discrimina
tion In favor of the point which this
Commission would be glad to see min
imised rather than increased, at the
aame time there is no reason why the
shipper, who desires, should not be
given the opportunity of transporting
his wool from the interior point to
the coast, and sending it thence by
water to Its final destination.
"The discrimination la, of course, an
outoome of this condition. The applica
tion of the carriers was made to me
since I had been In charge of the In
vestigation and I said to them that
while I could sea no way in which It
could be granted and must myself vote
against it, I would) aubmlt It to my
associates for further consideration.
"The application was considered by
the full Commission In conference and
denied. Tou will therefore see that
there la absolutely no basis for the
statement of carriers that they have
authority to establish the third-class
rata, at the aame time this Commission
does feel that the discrimination
against Interior points ought not to be
unduly increased and if any proper way
could b found might be inclined to
modify Its conclusions to that end.
"All these wool tariffs were to be
made effective June 1. It seema to me
that whatever tariffs have been es
tablished had better be allowed to go
Into effect and to remain in effect dur
ing; the present season. Both parties
wilt prooaDiy apply to the Commission
for a modification of the rates and
minimum suggested and these appli
cations will be heard upon notice to
the opposing side. It Is my impression,
although I bav no warrant for say
ing so. that the Commission will pro
tect by orders of reparation the rates
found reasonable In Its opinion unless
some strong reaaon la shown for a
change in those conclusions."
