The opinion recounts the origin of
the Western classification of ireignt.
which is generally adopted, and sets
out . the standard percentage relation
ship of one class to another as recog
nized and adopted by the Interstate
Commission and the Railroad Commis
sion of Oregon. The classification has
grown into a'usage recognized by the
rate regulating authorities, as has the
fact that the lesser cost of transpor
tation has rendered the rates on ship
ment in less than carload higher than
carload rates. Many certain commodi
ties carried in larger quantities are ex
cepted from the classification and take
exceedingly low rates called commodity
rates. Where commodity rates are pro
vided they become the controlling rate
without reference to the classification.
AH Provtaloas Coasidered.
Not all articles are given carload
rates In the classification, the opinion
p6lnts out, any many carload rates de
pend on the manner in which the arti
cles are prepared for shipment.
The initiative bill undertook to
change the relationship between the
various classes In order that each class
should be approximately SI per cent of
the rate on the higher class. The court
points out that however high this
scale be fixed by section one, the act
must be construed In compliance with
all the provisions of the act.
Section 2 of the act makes it incum
bent on the carrier to provide a min
imum carload weight for each article
of freight whether classified or not
and section three presupposes that a
less than carload rate has also been
fixed. Section three provides for a
maximum percentage for a carload
with reference to less than carload
The statute does not pretend to pro
vide maximum rates of carriage, but
does effect maximum percentage for a
minimum carload. With relation to the

table are found to be incongruous in
that the rate fixed by section three for
carload rates, based on the Tess than
carload rate, will not conform to the
carload classification contained In the
Western classification, the decision
Effect Pointed Out.
The effect is that the carrier cannot
in many cases obtain the maximum
rate provided by section three and at
the same time adjust its rates accord
ing to section one. The first three sec
tions are declared to be incongruous
and wholly unreconcllable and impos
sible to put In practice unless the car
rier waives some portion of the max
imum percentage of the less than car
The court also calls attention to arbi
trary and perfectly rigid "spread" or
relationship between the carload and
the less than carload rates, which ap
plies to all kinds of articles and com
modities offered for transportation,
whatever their character and regard
of the condition of carriage. Where
there is but a difference of one class
botween the carload and less than car
load rates under the classification, the
effect of the bill in many instances is
to make a "spread" of three or four
Instances are shown by the court
where the result is to Increase very
greatly the rate of carriage for car
loads; for instance, the present carload
rate for the transportation of logs
from Wendling to Coburg is 11.10 per
thousand feet. Under the act the rate
would be Increased to $4.36.
"Thus it will be found that, in the
application of carload rates under the
initiative act the opinion reads, "as
suming that the less than carload re
mains the same the rates will be large
ly increased for the carriage of coal,
hay and straw, lumber, brick, sand and
stone, livestock and other articles in
stanced in the bill, while on the other
hand there will be reduction as to such
commodities as grain. Tour. salt, gro
ceries, etc So that it is at once ap
parent that the initiative act, if ap
plied for the reduction of freight
rates, will work a very radical change
in practically all rates, and require an
almost complete readjustment in car
load and less than carload rates within
Poller of Law passed By.
The court says it has nothing to do
with policy of the law, and can only
determine whether it is consistent with
Itself so that it Is susceptible of prac
tical operation, and whether it violates
constitutional provisions. Such "an ar
bitrary or rigid spread is illy adapted
for Just, aquitable and reasonable non
discriminatory rate making for all
commodities and under all conditions,"
the court holds.
The court also holds that the act
evades the natural and constitutional
rights of the carrier and Is an attempt
under the guise of the exercise of the
lollce power of the state to make ex-
LESSONS OF MILK SHOW
Edith Knight Holmes Comments on Addresses and Demonstrations Calcu
lated to Provide Portland "With Purest of Product,
BT EDITH KNIGHT HOLMES.
THE Milk Show which was held in
the Meier & Frank Company's
building all last week marked
an epoch in the history of Portland,
for it was one of the greatest edu
cational features that has ever been
offered the people of Portland. At
the various booths were to be found
demonstrations and chart that gave
clearly the relative values of milk as
a food, the necessity of keeping milk
and everything pertaining to it abso
lutely clean and showed Just how the
city health bureaus and the colleges
and the dairies were all co-operating
to give Portland the best milk supply
In the world.
The lectures given in the tea room
were well attended and the evident
enthusiasm of the audiences was an
Inspiration to the speakers and to all
who had helped to make the Milk
Show a success.
The thousands of visitors at the
show were ail made to realize the
great Importance of the milk ques
tion. Housekeepers found many help
ful pointers in the booths showing
the model kitchen, the care of babies
and the modification of milk. The
school children who attended the show
took notes and this week they will
be required to write short composi
tions on the milk show and the prac
tical benefits to be derived from visit
ing it. , ,
Baby Demonstration Commended.
The Baby Home's booth with its
dainty blue and white beds and pretty
babies demonstrated more eloquently
than words could tell, the fact that
the little ones are well cared for and
that they are fed with ideally modi
fied milk. Dr. Joseph Bllderback. Dr.
James Rosenfeld and the nurses who
have arranged the bottle formulae
came in for much deserved praise
from visitors at the show.
The Oregon Congress of Mothers who
had an attractive booth were kept busy
constantly answering questions that
related to the care of the baby, its
feeding and clothing.
Valuable Information was given to
all inquirers at the booths conducted
by the Young Women's Christian Asso
ciation, the Portland Health Depart-,
ment, the Oregon Agricultural College,
the Woman's Auxiliary of the North
Portland Commercial Club and State
Dairy and Food Commission. The
dairies made a creditable showing and
had experts on hand to explain the
food value of buttermilk, cream, ice
cream and all milk products.
Committees Arrange Programmes.
The programmes were under the di
rection of the Woman's Auxiliary of
the North Portland Commercial Club,
the Oregon Congress of Mothers, the
Consumers' League, the State Woman's
Press Club, the Portland Woman's Club
and the Visiting- Nurse Association.
Mayor Albee, wno opened tne Milk
Show with an address of welcome, was,
with Dr. M. B. Marcellus and Mrs.
C. F. Nichols, ex-officio member of all
the committees. The executive com
mittee included Mrs. II. M. Bransford.
O. XL Plummer, Marshall Dana, Dr.
Mary V. Madigan.
ceptlons In favor of particular places
in the community.
We do not deny, says tne court,
that the Legislature, the people, or
the Railroad Commission may deter
mine and adopt a reasonable spread as
applied to specific commodities and for
the protection of given localities; but
that is a very different question from
one arising from an edict that a cer
tain definite and rigid spread shall be
applied to all commodities, whatsoever
may be tneir kind or character, origin
of shipment or destination. Indeed,
the act would seem to defect Itself. It
will either compel the carrier to accept
unreasonably low rates on carload lots
as it respects some commodities, which
would be unjust and confiscatory, or to
fix unreasonably high rates on less
than carload lots, which the law will
not permit in order to adjust the car
load rates within the maximum relative
rates for minimum carload weights; or
It might constrain the carrier in order
to afford the public a very low rate on
commodates that would Justify it to
carry the same commodities less than
carload at an unreasonably low rate."
The decision of the court allows tne
costs of the action to the complainants,
the Hill and li'arriman lines.
The matters at issue which are set
tled by the decision of the Federal
Judges are of so technical a character
as to be extremely difficult for the
average layman to grasp.
Yesterday's decision is the result of
eigth caess involving principles raised
by tho rate bin, which were brought
in the United States District Court by
tho Hill and Harriman lines against the
members of the Railroad Commission
of Oregon, the Attorney-General and
the various prosecuting attorneys. Un
der the Federal law such a suit must
be heard before three Judges, and hence
was submitted on the complaint and
argued before Judges Gilbert, Wolver
ton and Bean.
Wolverton Cites Effects.
In his opinion' Judge Wolverton points
out that the effect of the first section
of the act is to provide a standard for
the classification ratings of freight; of
the second section, to require that a
minimum carload weight be provided
for each article; and of the third, to
establish a maximum percentage of
rates for minimum carload weights
with reference to less than carload
charges, above which It is declared to
be unlawful to exact compensation for
transportation. The act imposed a pen
alty of $100 and costs for each sepa
rate shipment in violation of its terms.

t DECISION CLEARS ATMOSPHERE AND REMOVES RAILROAD
I COMMISSIONER'S EMBARRASSMENT, SAYS
I "The decision of the court annulling the Medford bill considerably
t clears the atmosphere," commented Clyde B. Aitchlson, of the State
I Railroad Commission. "Ever since the enactment of the act there
have been doubts both as to its meaning and as to whether it could
I be either practically or legally enforced. The result has been merely
to embarrass unnecessarily the Railroad Commission in its work.
i "At the best, there has been no reason for any such legislation.
Existing laws condemn unjust and unreasonable rates and forbid un
just discriminations in every form. If there was ever any reason
for the adjustment which the authors of the bill sought to accomplish
and which the court has characterized as arbitrary and Incongruous,
it could have been submitted to the Commission tor determination,
and if the Commission adopted incorrect principles in passing on the
subject, a remedy exists for a review of the Commission's decision in
the courts of the state. No such suggestion was ever made to the .
"I have talked with many persons who admit having voted for
the bill, but have yet one to find who claims to have understood what
it was or why he was voting for It. Many have stated that they
saw It was 'something which was designed to regulate railroads,"
and therefore they voted for it."
Among the most instructive ad
dresses given at the show was that of
Dr. E. A. Pierce who spoke on Satur
day of the "Relation of Milk to Tuber
culosis In Human Beings."
He quoted a report of the British
Tuberculosis Commission asserting that
a considerable amount of disease and
loss of life, especially among the
young, must be attributed to the con
sumption of cows' milk containing tu
Dr. Pierce also spoke of the general
milk supply of New York City of
which he said 16 per cent was contam
inated with virulent tubercle bacilli.
This Is held to prove that all people,
both young and old, possess a degree
of Immunity to the infection.
Human Germ Moat Radical.
"In view of the studies thus far car
ried out both here and abroad," said
Dr. Pierce, "it would seem best, at the
present time, to regard the bacillus of
the human type as the cause of the
great scourge of tuberculosis and to
look upon the bovine bacillus as the
cause of definite but much, less wide
spread type of disease."
In a scholarly way the speaker went
on to explain the various ways in
which the dread disease could be trans
mitted. He spoke highly of the local
conditions as compared with those pre
vailing in the East and abroad. From
his deductions -it was shown that tu
berculosis could be transmitted from
the cow to the human being and that
It could find its way In the cream and
butter, but as the cows in the vicin
ity of Portland are so free from the
disease, the danger here was declared
not so great.
In concluding. Dr. Pierce said: "The
fact that tubercle bacilli of one spe
cies may be transmitted to an animal
of a different species or to man, msnos
it apparent that any preventive
methodB for controlling tuberculosis,
to be successful must take into con

before the Circuit Court, Judge Phelps
today dismissed the four cases in
which the charge was that of selling
liquor without a license, on the ground
that there is no state law governing

other liquor cases either will be tried
in the Circuit Court or the attorneys
Interested will stipulate as to the facts
and take the cases to the Supreme
Court on a point of law.
Judge Phelps holds that the consti
tutional amendment to the home rule
law does not preclude the state from
prosecuting for a breach of the Sunday
law for the reason that there Is a stat
ute against the sale of liquor on Sun
day. In other words he holds that the
people at large did not intend to take
from the state the right to prosecute
for a violation of the state laws even
though such state law might Involve
to an extent the regulation of the li
