Cars Recorded In 1813.
REGONIAN NEWS BUREAU. "Wash
ington, March 23. The Interstate Com
merce Commission rendered a rather
exhaustive and Important decision re-
ntly, -prohibiting the closing- of the
Spokane. Silver Bow and Butte erate
"ways to shipments of lumber originat
ing on other lines and destined to
points of consumption along the lines
of the Union Pacific system. When the
railroads sought to close these Kate
"ways, the Commission suspended their
wraer, ana tne suspension is now made
permanent. The traffic involved con
sists in eastbound lumber and forest
products Irom Oregon and Washington
points,, consigned to Middle West and
Eastern points reached by the Union
Pacific system. In its decision the
"The Union Pacific lines contend that
Tneir local mills are excluded from mar.
kets that they should rightfully reach
at a lower rate of freight than, the
mills on the Northern Pacific, Great
Northern and St. Paul, so long as
lumber from local points oh the Union
Pacific's rails must pay the combina
tion of local rates to reach consuming
iminis on tne otner lines.
Witnesses appeared in support of
xnese cancellations who were operating
jumoer muis at points local to Oregon
vvasnmgton. They testified that
xney considered this limitation upon
me manteis or tneir competitors locat
ed on other lines of a road as an act of
simple Justice to them, because the
TNortnern Pacific and Great Northrn
always had refused to join in rates to
local points of consumption on other
lines irom loal points on the Oregon
Washington. Two of these witnesses,
jiuwever, admitted mat they would pre
ler to have through rates from their
mills to destinations on the other lines,
.uua widening tneir marKets. But, be
ing excluded from markets on the
Northern Pacific and Great Northern,
they felt that they were entitled to a
monopoly of all markets on the Union
Wisdom of Morr Seen I.atc.
i'T i - ... . .
i..r8ins mis reature or the case
ne cnier witness for the carrier assert
ed that the cancellations in question
naa oeen made in recognition of the
wisdom of the policy pursued by tha
nonnern and Northern Pacific
He insisted that this action by the
Union Pacific lines cannot be described
u ui oi reprisal, but that it was
oniy a tardy recognition by his com
pany of the wisdom of the course
which competing lines have pursued.
"The Union Pacific asserts that be
cause of the two-line haul and the
relatively low rates that prevail on
lumber throughout , this territory, the
traffic from mills' points on other lines
Is not atractive to the Union Pacific.
As has been shown, it was sufficiently
attractive to extend the same policy
of joining in rates from mills on the
St. Paul, when that line was extended
to the Coast, as had prevailed for ten
years in connection with the Great
Northern and Northern Pacific, and the
record does not give any indication
that these rates so long voluntarily
continued are now unreasonably low.
The question of the right of the carrier
to limit markets and create a monopoly
on behalf of protestants located on its
line has been passed upon by the Com
mission in a long series of cases
familiar to all who have followed the
discussion of that important question.
"We have no hesitation in coming to
the conclusion from the record on this
phase of the case that the Union Pa
cific has failed to Justify the advance
which they propose in lumber rates
from mill points on other lines."
Colorado Gateway Stays Open.
The Commission In the same decision
denies the right of the railroads to
close the Colorado gateways upon gen
eral traffic between points along the
