Three Members of Commission
to Take Evidence.
ARGUMENT OPENS MONDAY
All Columbia Basin Concerned
In Matter, Which Embraces
Charges to Tidewater.
What is generally conceded to be the
most important traffic question ever
raised in the west will be placed fully
and completely before the interstate
commerce commission when hearings
on the Columbia basin rate case are
started at room 203 courthouse tomor
row morning:."
Two fundamental issues are involved
In the proceedings. One is the alleged
discrimination favoring Fuget sound
points as against Portland in shipments
from the Inland Empire country, and
the other is whether or not the rail
roads shall be compelled to take into
consideration the water-grade haul in
determining transportation charges
from the Inland Empire to Pacific coast
points.
Although six separate complaints, all
bearing on the same issues, have been
filed with the commission, the ques
tions involved are so closely related
to each other that it is expected that
testimony used in one case will be
considered and become a part of the
record in all other cases.
Portland Much Concerned.
Those seeking relief are the Inland
Empire Shippers league, the Port of
Portland commission, the Portland
dock commission, the Portland Cham
ber of Commerce, the Portland Traffic
and Transportation association and the
Oregon public service commission. Tht
state commission was the last to file
its complaint with the national com
mission, it having been forwarded to
Washington but three weeks ago. Many
other parties are entering the case as
interveners.
Testimony in the hearing of the
Inland Empire Shippers league will be
taken at the outset of the hearing
Monday morning. It is not known in
what order the other complainants will
be heard.
The -Inland Empire Shippers league
is seeking only to establish more
equitable rates on grain shipments
from the Inland Empire section to
Portland, while the other complainants
are demanding that the rates on all
commodities be changed in accordance
with arguments which they will ad
vance before the commission.
Under the present traffic conditions
rates between the Inland Empire sec
tion are the same to Portland as to
Seattle and other Puget Sound points,
despite the fact that in many instances
the distance to Porfland is much less
than to Puget sound.
Grade Cited as Cause.
In addition to the actual difference
in mileage, the shippers also contend
that by reason of the water grade haul
to Portland, as against the heavy grade
from the Inland Empire to Puget sound,
the rates to Portland should be lower.
Traffic experts will endeavor to pove
to the interstate commerce commission
that the operating costs between the
Inland Empire and Portland are much
less than to Puget sound. For this rea
son they will make every effort to in
duce the national commission to estab
lish a cost haul basis in determining
transportation costs between these
points.
A side issue in the case, which will
result in having Astoria shipping in
terests iine up against Portland, is the
demand of the Portland complainants
that this city be given a differential
under Astoria. Rates to these two
points from the Inland empire are now
identical, although Portland is 100
iniles nearer than the seaport town.
The town of Warrenton also has inter
vened, and is asking for the same ter
minal rate as is now given to Astoria.
Sound 1t Interested.
Fuget sound shipping and business
Interests will make a determined fight
against the demands of the Portland
shippers, and some of the best legal
minds and foremost traffic experts wUJ
attend the hearing to espouse the cause
of Seattle and her sister cities along
the sound.
It is expected that the hearing in
Portland will continue throughout the
week, as scores of railroad and traffic
men from all parts of the country will
be here to offer their testimony. Hear
ings will be held in Seattle later.
The hearing will be conducted ..by
Interstate Commerce Commissioners
Hall, Daniels and Eastman, this being
the first time in the history of that
body that three of their number have
come to the Pacific coast to sit at a
rate Rearing. This means, assert Port
land shippers, that the interstate com
merce commission concedes this to be
one of the most important rate matters
which has ever arisen in the west.

In buying motor transportation two
of the most important subjects to
be considered are longevity and the
responsibility of the representative
. that sells the truck.
In the first place if any prece
dence can be given you want a
truck that will last a long time,
render efficient service and have a
definite resale value.
Note the number of HACK trucks
still In use that have been in opera
tion several years. Some of them have
traveled hundreds of thousands of
miles.
Long life? Why, Methusaleh, the
Grizzly Giant and the Rock of Apes
alone have anything on a MACK
truck.
And who is behind the truck you are
going to buy? Is it manufactured in
a factory where nothing but the best
grade of materials are used and are
the highest class of engineers asso
ciated with its design and construc
tion? And has the dealer years of
experience and is his organization one
that possesses a reputation for fair
dealing? Is his service department
equipped to render help when help is
needed?
All these things you get
with a MACK truck and
