Transports and Cargo Ships Are
'.Sailing .With'-Ballast-.-When
- Equipment Goes Cheaply.'-
Washington, July Tl. WASH
NAL,) A statement from the statis
tics branch, ofi the 5 general staff xf
the j army says that ? only : small
amount' bf entrineerinr eaulnment in
rFrance.whlch is desired by the arri
cultural department for ' return to
this country' for road construction,
is available, much' of it having been
sdld or Inventoried for sale to the
French government, f.)
Among the engineering officers recent
ly -eturned from France there Is a dis
position to : question '.the accuracy of
this. J 'They ' say that while inventories
have " been made v for prospective sale,
very tittle has actually been sold, and
if sale is made it will be at a traction of
the value which would -be secured by
return of , the equipment to this country.
It is further asserted that transports
have been returning with water ballast
for months when the ships could have
carried some of the equipment piled up
at depots in France.; The war depart
ment is accused of failing to cooper
ate with the department of agriculture
to the fullest, extent in arranging for the
returns of this material.
. However this imay I be, the war de
partment takes the .position, that no
additional requests for return of equip
ment should "be made save in most ex
ceptional, cases. .Meantime the distribut
ing of surplus: material "In -the United
States is going on, and thousands : of
trucks are. being, sent to the roadmak
ers. About 300 trucks have been or
dered sent to Oregon, it "said. -

portionately decrease, proved interesting
to the many auditors at' the hearing.
'The point was illustrated by reciting
the, owner-efa -store.- If he - sells one
doseii shirts he must: realise a greater
gross profit therefrom than 'if he sells
1008 s shirts. Therefore, as mileage in
creases, the -per ton mile .cost of ship
ments, should decrease.
-The witness confined his testimony to
to fruit " raising districts of Idaho, ex
cept in - the case of several : Interesting
men's furnisher and hatter

comparisons his statistics presented. He
showed that the Northwestern railroads,
with large fruit traffic have , consider
ably longer , hauls . 'per . ton than do
eastern and ' southern roads -and .that,'
in spite of this fact, the per ton mile
rate on eastern and southern "roads is
far lower than the charge in the North
west. M-s-.- j '.'yifw
nhe rate of the Union Pacific is $3.50
per ton mile, the highest cost of anr
carrler,, Way, declared. 4 "The'Korthern
Pacific charge Js 12.72. higher than any
other road except the U. P. , and the
Santa Fe. . The 0-W,,B."&- K. charge of
32,15 is higher than an but -four roads
and Is i higher than , any southwestern
carrier. Only seven carriers charge more
than the 32.01 collected by the Great
Northern'.- '.-.,'', ' .
; ' , .".. ,
; Way cited numerous freight rate com
parisons between the fruit growing dis
tricts of Idaho- to a ' common destina
tion, with other equally .distant points of
origin, He put much emphasis upon the
proposition of guiding, rate making . by
the ratio between operating ' cost : and
revenue. S 1 . - - j r J : ' i'"tl '; "
- In Illustration, the pointed repeatedly
to the fact that in the Northwest, and
especially in Idaho,, freight strains con
tain many.' more .cars. than, roads; else
where and haul v them : over a ' much
greater distance. These .things, he de
clared, should tend to lower comparative
, tariffs ' rather .than' increase them, . aa
the railroad administration proposes. ,
Important developments in presenting
the case - of the 'shippers ' and i growers
are expected when, the Idaho utilities
commission ' completes the submission
of Its testimony and the actual growers'-
and shippers representatives take
the- witness stand. ' Among the first
spokesmen for the fruit Industry will
be A. W. Stone, general manager ; of
the Hood River , Apple Growers' - asso
ciation, .who expects to be called ; late
today. . -
. These and other men will stress the
fact that i the carriers .were -very swil
ling to - fight for the consignments ' of
the fruit Industry-when it was in its
infancy, and that" they then handled
the traffic at a good profit. Now
that the industry ' has grown In 4 scope
uptil it is one of ' the most Important
In the t West, ": with carriers' Tpvenues
correspondingly increased, the roads see
a ; "goati upon which " mey can sad'
die their losses from other operations.
BI8LIKEI t ' ' "
The 'growers ' win strenuously object
to a 'percentage" increase " in , tariffs,
on the ground that - It presents an un
fair burden, giving other sections of
the country: the advantage of a handi
cap in the race 'to markets. It will be
shown' that; the roads are . profiting
greatly, and need no added revenue, but
that if the interstate commerce com
mission does not see "this as a fact It
would do the fruit industry no injustice
by applying a "cents' increase. That
is to say," shippers ' point out that , if a
rise . in tariff is mandatory it should
be . equal On " all ' districts. If 25 cents
per ton more is needed all districts
should be required to pay 25 cents per
ton, ' rather than to - apportion the , in
crease on a percentage plan.
Evidence of the profits reaped by
Northwestern roads was submitted in
part this mornfng. It was shown that
the Union Pacific netted a! profit of
something, more than 10 per cent , in
1918, and " that muchr of ?.hls profit on
freights was from the- fruit Industry a
The Northern Pacific, Rotable among
the Northwestern . carriers that ; profit
from . the ' fruit . industry, paid ' large'
stock dividends last year, and In addi
tion j put much revenue gfrom t freights
into its treasury. . .., --k-'- .:
- Northwestern lines will be shown: to'
have, suffered very slightly during- the
war and - to have borrowed a minimum
sum while eastern roads were plunging
head over heels into debt to continue In
business. This will subtantlate the con
tention that the carriers are not entitled
to an increase ,. in- perishable freight
rates. - -
It is possible that the hearing can be
closed by Saturday - night, but it will
continue with a session Monday if neces
sary. It is said.

So-called stomach troubles, such as in
digestion, . gas,,, sourness. stomach-ache
and inability to retain food are in prob

.Gas distends the stomach and causes
that -full, oppressive, - burning 'feeling
sometimes known as heartburn, while
the acid irritates and Inflames the deli
cate lining of the stomach. The trouble
lies entirely in the excess development
or secretion of acid..
To stop or prevent this souring etf.lhe
food contents of the stomach and to neu
tralize the acid, and make it bland and
harmless, - a teaspoonful of olsurated
magnesia, a- good and effective corrector
of -acid stomach, should - be taken in a
quarter of a glass of hot or cold water
after eatinr or whenever gas. sourness
r acidity is felt. This sweetens tiie
stomach and neutralises the acidity la a
few moments and is a perfectly harmless
and inexpensive - remedy' to use.
(An . antiacid, such as . bisurated mag
