Should Freight Rates Be Reduced at the
Expense of Good Service?
I .In.. i i.il In Chicago Tribune, August. 23, ll'.i:l, entitled "I'reiglit I title and immioilllv Price : "
The head of the Carnegie I intitule at Pittsburgh told a gathering of farmers that if the man
ufacturers of machinery, clothing, house furnishings and other commodities would reduce prices
'2 per cent ihiH would reduce the farmer's expenses as much as a 25 per cent reduction in
freight rates. So would a reduction of 1 per cent In interest on loans.
"The trouble with that proposition is thai the freight rates may be reduced possibly by
piiliiie.il pressure; comiuodille: ami Interest not so readily.
"Hut t tin t is a consideration the fanners will ponder very carefully, if they look to the future.
They inity be able lo force a reduction in freight rates by using their Influence upon the machin
ery dI regulation, but if thai reduces I he elllclency of trasportatlon the immediate advantage
will be swallowed up sooner or later, probably sooner. Regulation, unlesB it is constructive,
unless In the long run It builds up the railroads, Is not In the farmers Interest. As his political
leaders do not discuss that much, it Is up to the farmer to look it up lor himself. Just freight
rales should be worked for, but a rate that Is inadequate lo the currier is not Just to the far
mer , though he may think it is until he begins to pay the price of inadequate service."
A railway ft reduction suftlclenl to enable a shipper to make a substantial saving on a
freight bill would, if made effective now, Impair the earning power of every western railroad
and threaten the solvency of some. All that a railway buys,- labor, coal, forest products,
steel articles, etc., still range at peak prices, and rates cunnot safely be lowered until there, is
a reduction In lhe.se costs.
Eighty-eight eentB of the railway dollar Is required for wages, fuel, supplies, taxes and rent
als. A 10 per cent ratu reduction would wipe out all profit and injure the credit of lines which
have nothing saved up for a rainy day. '
The Government turned the railroads back to their owners in 1920 with an average operat
ing deficit of $45,000,000 a month, which had been paid from the Federal treasury. Now the
lullrouds have no such recourse.
The int rouse in railroad I might rules Is less (htm the inrrenae 1" other prices.
in Junuary, 1923, the average freight rate of the western railroads was only 3G per cent
higher than in 1913, while the average wholesale price of all farm products was 42 per cent
higher and the average wholesale price of all commodities f6 per cent higher.
Fluctuation in prices for farm products cannot be laid at (he door of the railroad, since be
tween June, 1922, and June. 1923, under the same transportation conditions, wheat declined
10 cents a bushel in price and corn improved 19 cents.
The depressed condition of the farmer, and particularly (he wheat grower, has been of great
concern to the railways, as well as to the public, but happilv all signs point to a material im
pioveincnl "Tim" i-ntimutcd Imoioc ol t lie lurnis of Amcricu lor l!i;l is u billion dollars in ex
ics of their income In lOiiU" i Advert Iseiuent, The Capper Farm l'ress, October 8, 1923).
And the lat annual report of the Interstate Commerce Commission say: "Manifestly, ex
Isllng rules are no longer interfering with ibe live tlou ut commerce as it whole."
Give the railroads a e'.iance.Don't lessos their usefulness by Impairing their earning power.
They are spending more than a billion dollars this uir not I'roiiicnriilngs hut of new money
to put their properties In condition to better Rene the public and to prevent car shortages
this because they believe In the Inherent fulrnesa of the American people and their willingness
lo pay what good service is worth. Starved railroads, like starved horses, cannot do good work.
It Is axiomatic that compensator) rates wilh good service are far preferable to cheaper rates
with poor service.
Constructive suggestions are always welcome. '(
