The Ashland Tidings Sy Rail
Charges From Water Point
U Too High.
The following article regarding
freight rates in Southern Oregon,
taken from the Ashland Tidings, is
timely and to the point :
"The ioterior Oregon pnblio is
anxiously awaiting to see Just what
the effect of the new federal rate
regulation law is going to be in re
gard to railroad freight rates within
the state and their relative relation
to the Portland-San Francisco rate.
For years merchants in Ashland and
all other towns for ISO miles on either
side of it on the Southern Paoiflo line
have been paying two or three times
as muub for having their freight
hauled from either Portland or San
Franoisoo as merchants or others In
either of the latter cities have had to
pay for hauling the same kind of
freight all the way through from ter
minal to terminal. It now oosts Ah
land merchants mnch more to get
freight from San Franoisoo than
Eugene merchants, 2()0 miles farther
away from the bay oity, pay for the
longer haul, while Salem, 100 miles
still further away, is accorded a still
lower late than Eugene. Freight
that comes through all the way from
Boston, Mass., to Portlaud, Ore., 4000
miles more or less, for approximately
1 cents per pound, costs under exist
lug railroad rate condition in this
state 1'4' cents per pound additional
for the iMI-tnile haul from Portland
to Aslilund, or 10 times as much
proportionately. The 'water compe
tition' argument has justified those
and mauy himilnr apparent injustices
for many years and has kept the in
terior country fiom open relielliou
against such handicap, and we pre
sume it will still keep us In iiihnilH
siou if the new rate law fulls short of
expectations, or unless the Oregon
legislature should ilecidu to take the
bit in its teeth and enact a reasonable
state maximum freight liw that will
'do something' for the sections of the
state fur remote irom ' water conipo
tition' and blessed with one single
line of railway. If those alternative
fail we cau only pray that Jim Hill
or Oould hurry np their entrance iu
to Oregon in ths hope that we'll get
some good out of the mix-up some

I September has treated os somewhat

There is considerable sickness in

If yon see anything unusual going
on at your neighbor's do not pat "two
and two" together and make a
scandal oat of it. More trouble is
caused by this kind of lightning cal
culator than is caused bv a town foil
of pickpockets and mad dogs. If you
have nothing more to do than peep
out of the window and watch your
neighbors, then buy a good strong
rope, sees a good strong, high limb
to a tree and bang yourself. Yon are
no good to yourself and a positive
detriment to the oommonity in which
yon live. Ex.
