SEATTLE. Wash., Jan. 28. (Spe
cial.) The four biff northern trans
continental railroads, It was an
nounced this morning, have aeciaea
to abolish the reconsignment charge
of J2.50 a car on all wheat and hay
hrouerht here for sale.
Thi totally remove one of the
differentials in favor of the Columb'a
river, as Portland has no sucn cnarge.
Formal notice of the transcontinen
tal railroads' decision to abolish the
reconsignment charge both in Seattle
and Tacoma was received toaay Dy
Frank R. Hanlon, manager of the
merchants' exchange of Seattle. The
merchants' exchange of Seattle and
the 'merchants' exchange of Tacoma
united forces in the movement to have
the reconsignment charge on the Pu
get sound ports totally wiped out.
Back-Haul Fees to End.
All back-haul charges in shifting
grain from the railroad storage yards
to Seattle and Tacoma also win De
wiped out by the railroads.
The abolition of the reconsignment
charge and the back-haul charge
mean the saving of 1 cent a bushel
for the shipper. In wheat transactions
1 cent a bushel is regarded as fine
profit. In effect. Portland has had
a differential of 1 cent a bushel in
her favor as against Seattle and Ta
coma.
The railroads will put their decision
Into effect when the new code bill is
disposed of by the state legislature.
The code bill creates the state office
of director of agriculture and vests
in it all the powers and duties relat
ing to wheat and hay inspection and
sampling now vested In the state
public service commission. But for
this fact the decision abolishing the
reconsignment and back-haul charges
would be placed in effect immediately.
New Tariffs to Be Iaaued.
The moment the state legislature
acts in this matter the railroads will
issue new tariffs abolishing the two
charges.
-We laid this matter before the
state public service commission," said
Mr. Hanlon this morning, "but the
railroads have acted voluntarily. It
Is a big victory for both Seattle and
Tacoma. It will help stimulate the
movement of Washington " wheat to
the sound ports. It will help develop
business for the port commission s
huge grain elevator and other Seattle
elevators. It is a big step forward.
When a carload of grain is brought
to Seattle for sale it is held in the I
storage yards for inspection and
sampling by the state public service
commission and the merchants' ex
change. With his samples the shipper I
goes to the merchants exchange and
offers it for sale. He closes the deal.
Then, under the conditions existing
now but which are to be abolished
by the railroads, a reconsignment I
charge of $2.50 a car is assessed by
the railroad for delivering the car to I
the buyer.
Storage Yard In Anbnrn.
When the new rule goes into effect
he car will be reconsigned without
charge.
The Northern Pacific s storage yards
are in Auburn. The Milwaukee sys
tem has its yards at Black River
Junction, while the Great Northern
has Its yards in Inter Bay. The Ore- I
gon - Washington yards are in Ta- I
coma.
The location of the yards is strate
gic for both Seattle and Tacoma. The I
owner of the wheat will be able to
hoot his shipments to either port
and take advantage of the moment's
conditions. If it is export wheat and
Tacoma happens to have a grain ship
in port, while one will not be due in
Seattle for several days, he can send
his consignment to Tacoma. or if the!
hip is in Seattle he can bring it here I
without aelay of any kind.
The back-haul charge is abolished
by giving the shipper a holding privi
lege In the storage yards. This means
that he can ship his wheat to any one
of the yards mentioned and later have

Privilege Lacking Before.
Heretofore, he has had no holding
privilege and to retain the through
rates he had to send his shipment di
rect either to Seattle or Tacoma. If
he had the grain in one of the yards,
he had to pay a back-haul from the
yard to the port. ,
Since July 1, Portland has received
10,413 cars of Washington wheat. In
the same period, Puget sound has re
ceived 518 cars of same product. Se
attle getting 3314 cars and Tacoma
3204.
The reconsignment charge and the
back-haul charge on the sound have
been the two factors that helped build
up Portland at the expense of Seattle
and Tacoma as an exporting center
for Washington-grown wheat.
The decision to abolish both charges
was made by the Puget sound heads
for four big transcontinental rail
roads with the full approval of their
executive headquarters.

"My stomach was in an awful con

pain In the ptt of my stomach. I
could hardly retain anything I ata

fered from. My liver was out of
order, too; my skin was yellow
an orange, and I had splitting head
aches I had frequent bilious spells.

"There was a turn for the better
almost at once and It wasn't long be
