Tha decision reeogmesa the principle
that tha railroads hare been buikiing

"A careful examination of the
ords makes it clear that these North
Pacific coast porta have closer geo
graphical and economic relations, one
to the other, than ia at this time
fleeted in the tariffs of tha defendant
carriers and that the latter, in their
present rata adjustment, unduly du
criminate against Astoria and unduly
prefer Puget sound porta.
'We also conclude and Brat from u
record that there ia such a relationship
between Seattle, Tacoma. Astoria and
Portland as to require them to be con-
aide red, forming mora or less of a
natural rate group with respect to
much of the traffic in Question.
"All facts adduced of record being
fully considered, we find, that between
Astoria and all points in this territory
on or east of the line of the Northern
Pacific, extending from Pendleton,
Or., throutrh Paaco and Kennewick,
Wash., to Spokane, and on or east 01
the line of the Great Northern, ex
tending from Spokane northward, the

the same time maintained between
Seattle, Tacoma and Portland and such
points; between Astoria and points on
the Oregon-Washington Railroad ft

rates at the same time maintained be
tween Seattle and Tacoma and such

tory just described, Astoria rates may

amount that Portland rates are higher
than Seattle arid Tacoma rates, provid

Cascade mountains, the Astoria rates

land in no case to exceed the local
rate between Portland and Astoria.
Incidental to possible future pro
ceedings, the commission says
It does not seem unduly venture
some to assume a purpose on the part
of Portland, in case of a reduction in
the Astoria rates to the basis of rates
to Puget sound porta, to call our at
tention at a later date to its advan

tance from Inland empire points, to
predicate upon that fact a demand for
a corresponding reduction in its own
The order of the commission re
quires that the readjustment of the
rates be made on or before Hay 1, and
continue then in effect for a period of
not less than two years from the date
of taking effect."

Mutton Wool Held.
There has been very little early
hearing In the Northwest this year.
Usually a considerable quantity of
mutton wool baa been shorn by this
date, but owing to the stormy weather
the present season, the sheep ar al
lowed to go to th slaughter houeea
with the wool on them. Some shear
ing has been done at th Seattle stock
yards, where; th wool is held for the
later market, but nothing has been
don at th Portland yards or In th
Contracting has not yet started in
the Northwest Buyers ar in the
field in some of the districts, but have
not been able to agree to terms with
th growers. Th market la strong
and the prospects ar good, but buyers
consider th price demanded as en
tirely too high.
In spit of th very sever weather
In the past six week, no heavy losses
to stock hav been reported. It has
been an expensive feeding season for
the sheepmen, but it is believed the
winter losses will "rove but little more
than the average.
Lewiston Retains Show.
Spokane Unanimous adoption of a
resolution here Wednesdsy by the dl
rectors of the Northwest Livestock
association, declaring that Lewiston,
Idaho, would continue to be the per
manent home of the association's an
nual stock show, ended a recent move
ment among various groups of stock
men to have the annual show trans
ferred from Lewiston to Spokane.
Th movement is said to have bad
its inception when representatives of
the Cascade International Livestock
association requested Spokane to take
over that association's annual show at
North Yakima. The request how-
ever,, subsequently was withdrawn.
At a conference between representa
tives of Spokane business organiza
tions and executives of the Northwest
Livestock association the concensus of
opinion was that Spokane should not
tak any action antagonistic to either
M Wheat Markets Are Firm.
Portland Th wheat market Is
firmer, but there Is little doing in th
country, as farmers are not sellers. At
the Merchants' Exchange 6000 bushels
of February fortyfold were sold at 97
cents, the same price as bid Monday,
and 6000 bushels of February club at
97 cents, an advance of 8 cents over
Monday's price. Other bids were
raised from 1 to 2 cents. Barley was
firm, with bids for brewing posted on
the board for the first time this sesson.
The oats market was quiet in the val
ley, but firm east of the mountains.
Spokane Orders Help Egg Trade,
Portland The egg market gained
temporary firmness Wednesday by
rather active buying on the part of
shippers for Spokane account The
buyers paid 28 cents cas - count and
practically cleaned . up the street
Lower offerings were wired from San
Francisco, but were without effect at
the time. Other lines of country
produce were quiet. The poultry mar
ket was inclined to be easier and veal
was also weak. Pork was steady.
No changes were reported in the
butter or cheese markets.
Fruit Trade Quiet.
Portland The fruit trad was quiet
Wednesday, aside from the demand for
apples. A car of head lettuce is due
