Contend Low Lumber Rata Will
vent New Construction.
Washington, March 0. Argument ot
the Pacific Coast lumber case was re
sumed before the InUrstato Commerce
commission yesterday. J. D. Kerr,
representing the Hill roads, frankly
stated that tho Northern Pacifio and
Great Northern have reached their ca
pacity for handling traffic. He said as
the development of the Northwest con
tinued, trafllc would grow Therefore
existing roads must Increase their ca
pacity or new roads must te built, but
he declared no new roads would be
built to haul lumber unless thoy had a
guarantee of a rate that would be re
muneiative. If the old non-compensatory
lumber rate is continued In
effect, money cannot bo procured and
railroad building will stop, he said.
31r. Kerr denied that the lumber
men would bo Injured by an Increase
They would still make a big profit, he
declared. The Booth-Kelly company
in Oregon, which Is not operated nnder
favorable conditions, could, on tho
basis of an advanced rate, still earn 31
per cent annually on Its Investment.
Some companies could make larger
profits, others not so much. Relative
to the arguments that lumber cannot
move Into competitive territory under
an advanced rate, Mr. Kerr showed that
the SL PmuI & Tacoma Lumber com
pany, of Tacoma, paid 65 cents Into
this district for years and made good
profita. This Is higher than the pro
posed new rate.
