The Car Situation.
Reports from Washington s a'e
ihat Interstate Commissioner Lane
is enroute to investigate the car
the Pacific northwest.
vVhile the commissioner has no
poer to HtTord any relief, his in
vestigation will bring reliable data
and will assist iu the struggle for
an aiequate car service. Data
gathered so far indicates that while
eastern roads are sometimes bother
with a slight car nhortage yet no
for lo-:g. Some of the bigger east
rn roids hare Is and -0 curs per
mile of t'ieir entire trackage while
lii'SPCo. has but :b The east
era roada have their territory of
course, closely built up, but even
then have immense mileage to
care for. The traffic aloug the thou
sands of milts of S P track extend
ing for along the southern border
of Texas, clear around up the Paci
fic coast to Portland has been lean
ttj TOTwnrn-Tn irnmense oounos,
which the railroad claims it has
not been able to keep pace with.
Thousands of new ears are needed
each year to replace worn and de
fective ones, besides the increase in
business. Many of the cars are
held by shippers at congested points
because demurrage ia cheaper than
storage. In Portland on one day
250 cars were counted, that were
being used by the produce mer
chants for storage. Their ow n war---
aouses were lull to overnj-.ving,
they had no room to store the goods
coming iu so insttad of seeking ad
ditional room at a big rental, let the
incoming goods stay in the cars un
til they can handle it and pay the
demurrage of SI. or Ho cents per
The railroad officials could not
r-ompell theso merchants to unload
the material as long as they paid
demurrage, but finally they had t-
refuse to receive outgoing stuff
from such merchants until they
emptied the cars they were using.
. iuch u tion brought some reli.'
there. 200 cars would make some
relief. .Such a condition exists in
J-an Francisco to a vastly greater
extent, thousands of cars are tied
up there, but tha railroads have no
way of forcin ? the merchants to mi
iood cars, for they are not shipping,
and have no place to store, their
Mores often doing a $loo,ooo busi
icssina $io shop, stacked to the
oof. The cars tied up in this way
would mean a big lift to the lum
I er shippers. The S. P. is going
after cars and will in lime have
enough, but the question is. what
affect will the present shortage
have on the country until the
shortage is relieved

irrigation tigineers consider it an
almost ideal irrigation community.
