- DISTANCE RATES
(Continued from Page One.):
' principal products of the etate of Ore
gon, our rates are very low. On the
eastern railroads with whrci-4hycom-
parlsons were made the merchandise
tonnage comprises fully SO per cent of
. the aggregate freight business, and
therefore we claim, the rates here are
. not comparatively high. .', " ? ;'
.-' '-...'. On Branch Uses, '-is'
- Freight rates on branch lines are made
; with reference to the competition that
may exist between branch - terminals.
For example, the freight-rate per ton
mile between Portland and Heppner
'and that between Portland and' Baker
City are nearly the same, while- there
Is a material difference In the distance.
The reaaon Is that these two cities ere
competitive trading points .and the
; freight rate applying -to both must be
about the same to give each an equal
chance for the' trade of ' the tributary
country. The rates at Bhantko and the
rates at Condon are Adjusted on a simi
lar principle. . Naturally freight .rates
on branch lines must ..be higher than
maln Una rates. It costs more per mile
'to carry freight on a branch line. No
; matter what the dlctanee, the train must
s mjke its trip and there must be a train
i crew and operating expenses every day
- for a abort ' run ' the aame as for the
long run on the main line. - .
The branch line is. usually projected
Into newt territory, where 'the tonnage
,1s thin, and the country fmist.be de
veloped.. The branch line is built on 'the
'principle -that It must be self-supporting,
and Its traffic is expected to make It
pay expenses Independently of what the
.main line is doing. These are some ef
the reaaons for apparent discrepancies
In freight , ratea. and they should be
' considered In - any . fair comparlaons
made." - . ,.'".
