CAR SICOUTAGE PROBLEM IS
SOLVED, SAYS A1TCHISOX
Washington, Nov. 80. (WASHING
TON BUREAU OF THIS JOURNAL)
In a letter to P. O. Donaldson, secretary
" of the Willamette Valley Lumbermen's
association, Cornnissloner Clyde B.
Aitchison of the interstate cynmerce
commission, sets forth thi effort he has
" made to equalise car supply among the
railroads operating In the Pacific
- Northwest, and in view of declarations
made by the executives of these roads,
expresses the belief that these troubles
' will be permanently minimised, s .
Willamette valley shippers have com
plained that they have been the vic
time of unequal distribution at the Port
V land gateway, for despite the great
number of cars which might be sent
north through Ashland by the Southern
Pacific they would escape through Port
land, without proper compensation from
the northern lines.
COMMOJT BASIS SEEK
"I feel that by coming to a common
basis of understanding as to equal Iza
t ' tion through these North Pacific gate
ways, a great step has been- taken for
ward by bringing all the carriers Inter
eated to an agreement as to the rule
which should be applied." says Mr. Altch-
' ioon. "What now remains is to see that
the rule as to the equalization at the
North Pacific junctions is carried out,
' and that there is a proper equalization
- as between the divisions of the South
. ern Pacific according to i the principle
laid down by Sproule. I am sure you
will agree it waa better to bring this
- question, which to my personal knowl
' ' edge has been troublesome for at least
15 years, finally to rest." .
ROADS GIVE RELIEF
Commissioner Aitchlson in his letter
- recites that he asked the executives of
, the Southern Pacific, Milwaukie, North
ern Pacific, Union Pacific, Great North
ern and 8. P. & S. to try to work out a
plan among themselves for Improvement
of Interchange af Portland, and rpre
resentatives of these roads later reported
that In a meetlnir at Chicago they
reached the conclusion that the princi
ple of equalizing freight car equipment
between all roads should be enforced
. both at Junctions and in handling switch
, cars at Oregon and Washington com
' mon points. Since that time Attention
haa been advised by J. H. Lothrop of
the Portland terminal - committee that
. the plan is working well.

"My first husband waa Captain-Victor
