Railway Interests 'Guarded
CHANGE IS DANGEROUS
Interstate Commission Insists on
Rates for Western Roads.
THE OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU.
Washington, D. C-, Nov. 11. Trans
continental railroads were today
denied authority by the interstate
commerce commission to reduce
rates on traffic originating east of
the Rocky mountains, or destined
ther :or, to or from Pacifio coast
terminals for the purpose of meet
ing water competition. The com
mission held that the amended
fourth section of the commerce act
made it mandatory on the commis
sion to deny any tariff changes
which did not assure reasonably
compensatory rates to the carriers.
The railroads, the commission
said, had failed to prove that the
rates proposed to compete with the
ocean carriers would be reasonably
compensatory. The commission also
saw in the proposed rate change a
violation of section 3 of the com
merce act, which provides that
there must be no discrimination be
tween shippers. The effect of the
decision is to leave the present
rates to and from the Pacific coast
Dissenting Opinions Filed.
Commissioner Meyer concurred in
the main findings of the commis
sion, but, supported by Commission
ers Esch and Lewis, dissented as to
the violation of section 3. Commis
sioner Campbell concurred in the
denial of the applications but filed
a dissenting opinion, asserting that
the commission had not recognized
the full intent of. Congress in the
enactment of the reasonably com
pensatory provision. Commissioner
Aitcheson, with Commissioner Pot
ter, dissented from the decision in
sofar as it denied the westbound
applications of the carriers ' for
relief under the fourth section.
Recognition is given by the com
mission to the provision of the
transportation act of 1920, section
500. which, the ruling points out,
indicates the purpose of congress
"to promote, encourage and develop
water transportation service and
utilities in connection with the
commerce of the United States, and
to foster and preserve in full vigor
both rail and water transportation."
Law Feature Interpreted.
Interpreting the reasonably com
pensatory provision of the amended
fourth section, the commission said:
"These proceedings comprise
fourth section applications of the
transcontinental lines proposing to
establish from and to the Pacific
coast terminals lower rates than are
in effect to tnd from intermediate
points on traffic having origin or
destination In the so-called defined
territories lying, roughly speaking,
east of the Rocky mountains.
"The Pacific coast terminals in
question are ports ot call in Cali
fornia, Oregon, Washington and
British Columbia for steamships ply
ing between those ports on-the one
hand and Atlantic and gulf ports
on the other, through the Panama
canal. The intermediate territory,
hereinafter referred to as inter
mountain territory, embraces such
typical points as Spokane, Wash.,
Reno, Nev., Salt Lake City, Utah,
and Phoenix, Ariz. On many com
modities he intermediate territory
extends east of Helena, Mont., Den

PARADE FITTING CLIMAX
Greatest Event of Kind Comes to
Close; Movement of Entries
With the greatest attendance in
the history of the Pacific Interna
tional Livestock exposition, esti
mated .by officials to have been ap
proximately 27,000, the 12th annual
stock show closed its doors with a
fitting climax in the grand parade
of champions through the huge
main arena last night. Exhibitors
were pleased, the public was
pleased, judges were pleased and
officials, of the exposition and resi
dents of Portland were enthusiastic
over the success of the greatest
show of the kind in history, which
ended after a week of rainy weather
with a total attendance record of
ficially estimated at more than 101,
000 people, the high mark of last
year's fine weather week.
"This was by far the greatest
livestock exposition in the world,"
declared E. A. Stuart of Seattle,
president of the exposition, who was
re-elected for another year, at the
close of last night's programme.
"The great enthusiasm displayed
here by the exhibitors and the gen
eral public has been gratifying to
each of us who have devoted our
efforts to making this show the
leader of its class. The manage
ment has not had the patronage this
year which had been expected, but
only the weather was to blame.
- Show Indicates Progrreaa'
"The quality of the stock is far
super'or to that of any previous ex
position, which indicates beyond all
doubt the progress made in the live
stock industry of the west during
the last year. We are starting now
on our plans for next year's exposi
tlon, and we are determined to make
next year's show even greater than
the one just closed. The manage
ment hopes to maintain the support
of citizens of the entire Pacifi
coast, which has been responsible
for the success of the show in the
past, in Its future endeavors."
Mr. Stuart is one of the foremost
breeders of purebred animals in the
west. He is owner of the Carnation
stock farm of Seattle, and has a
string of purebred horses which
have taken many awards at the
Eastern breeders of high-grade
stock and judges from eastern
shows were unanimous in their ver
dict that the Pacific International
this year eclipsed all stock shows in
the United States, both in the quality
of stock exhibited and in the num
ber of pure-bred animals entered.
That their opinion is sound can be
attested by the fact that four world
champions in dairy classes were en
tered in competition here and that
prize winners here are the prize
winners at all the great shows
throughout the country.
Eastern Man Amazed,
'It was with amazement that I
viewed the entries here," exclaimed
one eastern breeder yesterday, "for
I had no idea that the quality or the
quantity here, would be on a par
with eastern shows that I have at
tended. I take my hat off to the
greatest exposition of livestock that
I have ever seen and' I shall carry
