ahlpped from Kansas to southern
California and Artaona points, where :
Kansss millers sought to sell their
flour to the consumer on ths same .
freight rate baee that , they sold their
wheat to the mlllera in that territory.
The California ehlllera intervened and
aaeumed the task of proving to the
oommlsslon that they were entitled to
ths protection of 10-csnt dlffi -'al
In favor of ths. Kanaaa wheat t-,

of ths Spokans rate bearing in thla

by half a doaen attorneys representing 1
the railroads and ths conflicting mill

said ths Oommlsslon had in Its past de
cisions sustained the principle of leav
ing - undisturbed - a differential rats
where large Industries had been up upon
the reliance that such rate would con -tlnus
In sffect. Hs said ths state ,of ,
California, while formerly a wheat pro

off In this regard, but that It has flour
ing mill Interests representing an In- '
vestment of $11. $00,000 as compared ts
Kansas with $14,000,000. Hs decided
that a differential In this Cass was fair, 4
but that 10 osnts psr 100 pounds waa -too
much and ordered that the railroads '
shall on August .0 put in a differential
rate not exceeding 7 centa.
This differential will amount to II
cents per barrel In favor of ths Call-.

Kanaaa manufactured product laid
down In, California. It la admitted that
