RATES IS OPPOSED
Railroads Told Economies in
Handling Would Result in
TRAFFIC NOW PROFITABLE
Character of Many of Cars Sow fur
nished Criticised Products De
clared to Bear More Than
i Share of Burden.
CHICAGO. April 17. Basing his tes
timony on statistics tabulated in 22
exhibits. W. M. HopKlne. formerly man
ager of the transportation department
of. the Chicago Board of Trade, today
Bought to prove that Western grain
freight rates should not be advanced.
The principal contentions voiced by
him before W. M. Daniels. Interstate
Commerce Commissioner, who is hear
ing the petition of 41 Western rail
road systems for permission to advance
their "freight rates on certain com
modities, were that a saving equal to
the proposed increase of 1 cent a hun
dred pounds be effected if a more
economical method of handling grain
were practiced by the railroads, and
that grain now pays more than a fair
share of the total freight transporta
tion charges. .
Uneconomic Method Charged.
Illustrative of present methods of
handling grain, which he classed as un
economic, Mr. Hopkins cited the un
satisfactory character of many of the
cars furnished the shipper for grain
loading, failure to furnish receipts or
weighing at initial stations and un
necessary delays in hauling, delays at
terminals and unnecessary switching.
"Grain movement is highly remuner
ative' to the carrier," declared the wit
ness, '"because it loads to capacity and
moves from the Western fields to the
extreme liast and South of the coun
try." Judge A. E. Helm, of the Kansas
Railroad Commission, gave a general
outline of the objections to the pro
Western Farmers Affected.
"The proposed advance in rates on
grain and grain products and on live
stock affects the interests of the farm
ers of the West more than any other
class." said Judge Helm.
'It will be shown to the Commission
that the yearly averages of the produc
tion of wheat, corn, oats, rye and bar
ley in the United States are about one
third of the entire production of these
crops in the world; that with the gross
tonnage produced per mile of road and
the relative proportion of the products
of agriculture handled by the carriers
In the Bast, the present rates on grain
and grain products are higher than the
.verage of rates on all tonnage, while
the operating ratio of cost to revenues
is lower than on almost any class of.
carload freight. We contend that the
present and proposed rates on grain
and grain products in the West are
much higher than the rates for similar
distances in Eastern territory.
"We ehall show that the products
here involved now sustain more than
their full share of the burdens of trans
portation, and that any addition to
these charges will be unjust to the
farmers of the West."
PEAR SCAB REMEDY TOLD
Idaho Agricultural College Experts
CLAEKSTON, Wash., April 17. (Spe
cial.) Pear scab, the most serious
fungous disease of pears in the North
west, may be controlled by proper
85-raying and cultural methods, accord.
Jng to the leading plant pathologists
of the agricultural college.
It is caused by a fungus that may
live over Winter on decaying leaves
and on the twigs.
Three sprayings are recommended:
The iirst Just as the blossom buds, the
second just after the petals fall and
the third ten days or two weeks later.
Good results in the Willamette Val
ley are obtained by the use of lime
ulphur (stock solution, SO degrees
Baume) diluted 1 to 30 parts water.
If desired Bordeaux, 6-5-50, may be
used in tne application made previous
to the opening of the blossoms. Arse
pate of lead may be combined with
either mixture for codling moth, where
the time of application coincides with
that for scab.
