Before tho Eastern pessimists

BIGGS, Burns, Oregon.,
O. R. & N. company has been
gradually limiting tho territory
of Portland shippers and jobbers
until now it is practically im
possible for them to ship farther
cast than Pendleton was the
trend of tho testimony before
tho Interstate Commerce Com
mission, says the Journal.
The commission set in the con
vention hall of tho Commercial
club, Commissioners Edgar A.
Clark, F. M. Cockerel!, Judson
C. Clements, Charles A. Prouty,
Franklin K. Lane. James S. Har
lan and Chairman Martin Knapp
being present
J. G. Woodworth, traffic man
ager of the Northern Pacific, was
the first witness, his examination
being a continuance of one begun
in Seattle Saturday. Following
him Joseph N. Teal, attorney for
the transportation committco of
the Chamber of Commerce,
called L. Allen Lewis, of the firm
of Allen & Lewis, to the stand to
sliow the eiroct of tho rate
changes in the past ten or fifteen
years upon Portland jobbers.
Mr. Lewis said that his firm
has been in business in Portland
GO years. At one time they had
been able to distribute goods in
Oregon, Idaho, Washington, Cal
ifornia and Alaska. Heaaidthat
their business at present is con
fined to parts of Oregon and
Washington, mainly to that sec
tion lying west of the Cascades.
North of the Snake river, which
tne railroads nave tried to nx as
a boundry lino between Portland
nnd Spokane jobbers, he has
been able to do but little busi
ness. Ho has kept no traveling
men in western Montana and
northern Idaho for some time
and the only business done in
southern Idaho has been that of
special brands of goods sold de
spite unfavorable rates.
"At Huntington, tho dividing
point between the O. It. & N.
and tho Oregon Short Line,"
Mr. Lewis said, "the railroads
established what was in effect a
wall, beyond which wo were un
able to do any business. Tlio
Portland shippers wore urged by
officials of tho O. R. & N. to
bring suit to secure rates boyond
Huntington, and wo thought
then and I still think that this
wall was established merely be
cause of a quarrel between the
O. It. & N. and tho Short Line
over tho division of earnings.
"For tho past fow years we
have had to draw in gradually
almost all of our men from out
side territory. I consider that
so far as our appeals to tho rail
roads for hotter distributive
rates are concerned tho cflortsof
tho past fivo years have been
wasted. They have granted us
none of our requests, but have
kept on taking away our terri
tory and limiting tho business
that Portland is able to do with
tho surrounding country."
In reply to a question from
Chairman Lane of tho commis
sion, Mr. Lewis said that Port
land jobbers, so far as ho know,
did not ship much east of Pen
dleton. Most of tho wholesalers
keep branch houses in Pendleton,
Baker and other eastern Oregon
