and marked by f indiffer
ence on the part of people of this
stated Oregon's case in regard to
proposed grouping of western rail
roads was presented before mem
bers and examiners , of the inter
state commerce ; commission here
today. ' It was set to occupy two
days; instead ft came to an end
in Jess thah two! hours.
. Three 'opinions . oh . railroad
merging were presented.. These
were by ' tt. If. Corey, chairman
of the public service commission,
who presented a statement reflect
ing the opinion of that organiza
tion, another by H. J.Ottenhel
mer, chairman of j the Chamber of
Commerce i committe who submit
ted a, declaration authorized by
directors yt that ;bqdy, and by S.
M. , Hears, f chairman of the. Port
land Traffic and Transportation
association. The chamber opinion
opposed western I1 rail 'groupings
generally ai this time, f
' All three findings stressed lack
of rail development in the state.
All showed . the- fear that group
ing of interests and 'systems' by
roads serving the northwest would
mean the ; end t of competitiTe
