GERMAN RELIEF IS VOTED
Congress Appropriates $10,000,000 for
BATE CUT FIGHT
Washington, D. C. Disregarding
party lines, the house Monday night
adopted a resolution to appropriate
$10,000,000 for the purchase of food
supplies for destitute women and chil
dren in Germany.
Sent to the senate by a vote of 240
to 97, the measure stipulated that the
foodstuffs were to be bought in the
United States and transported to Ger
many in shipping board vessels.
Three hours woro devoted to debate,
after which a score of amendments
were offered. Only one, by Repre
sentative Jones, democrat of Texas,
which provided that the supplies
should be purchased wherever possible
through fanners' organizations, was
adopted, 1(15 to 08.
A amendment by Representative
Fitzgerald, republican, Ohio, would
have sought to prevent expenditure of
any of the appropriations until a sol
dier bonus bill was enacted into law.
It was thrown out on a point of order,
while an amendment by Representa
tive Underbill, republican, Massachu
setts, to withhold the appropriation
until the Herman government spends
an equal amount for the same purpose,
was rejected, 108 to 84.
Represntative Fish, republican, New
York, author of tho resolution, and an
ex-service man, led the fight for adop
tion, while Representative Conally,
democrat, Texas, directed the attack
against the measure.
Representative Burton, republican
Ohio, declared tho resolution to be
constitutional, whilo an opposite view
was taken by Representative Tucker,
democrat, Virginia. Tho Ohio mem
ber said It afforded an opportunity for
"charity" and needed relief. Mr. Tuck
er insisted it would tend to consoli
date the German vote, but would mean
nothing as a relief measure because
but 2 1-5 cents per day was available
for each of Germany's 2,500,000, chil
dren. The resolution, Representative Mc
Keown, democrat, Oklahoma, said at
tempts to excuse tho United States'
"lack of a foreign policy" and instead
of relief, France should bo made to
adopt "a proper course" towards Ger
many or "pay her debt to tho United
States." On the contrary, Representa
tive! La Guardla, republican insurgent,
New York, declared the bill would do
"more good in fivo minutes than the
league of nations In five years."
A warm appeal for the resolution
was made by Representative Cooper,
republican insurgent, Wisconsin, who
siiid that although Germany might
have sufficient food, it was destitute
of money with which to purchase it.

Portland, Or. Cattle raisers and
shippers of the Pacific northwest Sat
urday began their fight for lower
freight rates on Btock shipments from
the producing centers to distributing
and consumption centers on the coast.
Formal hearing of their complaint
was started before W. H. Wagner, ex
aminer of the interstate commerce
commission. The complainants are
the Cattle & Horse Raisers' associa
tion of Oregon, Northwest Livestock
Shippers' Traffic league and Portland
livestock exchange. Intervening with
them are the public utilities commis
sion of Idaho, the Idaho Wool Grow
ers' association, the Cattle & Horse
Growers' association of Oregon and
the Oregon Wool Growers' association
Arthur M. Geary, as attorney for
the complainants, is conducting the
case for the growers and shippers.
The railroads against which the ac
tion has been brought are the North
ern Pacific, Oregon-Washington Rail
road & Navigation company, Oregon
Short Lino railroad and the Spokane,
Portland and Seattle railway.
Tho approximate reduction asked,
although tho voluminous tariffs show
considerable variation, amounts to
about $15 a car on shipments from
Idaho and eastern Oregon to Portland,
Seattle and Tacoma.
Additional new rates aro asked, in
cluding a double deck rate on hogs
from eastern Oregon, which it is said
would save from $00 to $70 a car, a
reduction of from $30 to $40 a car on
the double deck rate on hogs from
Idaho and the establishment of rates
for diversified farmors providing for
a deck of sheep above a dock of hogs
or above a deck of calves.
Evidence was introduced to show
the high cost of production and the hiew owner has begun clearing the land
and will plant It to orchard. For some

dairy on the Iron Mountain farm near

Idaho, during the morning hearing pre
sented a detailed study of tho traffic
situation. Ho testified to tho material
volume of shipments and based his
figures mainly on the Oregon Short
Line railroad, taken as an example for
conditions existing on the other lines.
He contended that the cost of ship
ments on tho lines under firo, from the
interior points to Salt Lake and points
in Colorado, Is considerably less than
the rate charged on shipments to the
Pacific coast, although tho distance is
tho same and tho comparative con
ditions of haul equal. Tho eastbound
rates, he showed, average about $20 a
car above tho rates to Portland, Se
attle and Tacoma.
