NEW RATE LAW
ON1U of tho railroad commissioners in prophecy says or
the newly onnotrd initiutivo rati law that it will mako
a "killing" for Mig railroads, another of tho conmiiwiou
eiy sin's the law is "niciuiinjjlesa"; the Portland press
holds a brier for tho railroads that it will "foiinsoato'' the
small road, while tho manager of a 10 mile road preaches
that tho measure "will restrict" the movement of traffic
hoeauso of the high rates it imposes. All this is but the
delirium of en exeited imagination. mere moonshine.
The Canadian commission law imposed on the railroads
that thoy should filo a maximum standard rate basis above
which neither -the law nor the railroads might go, but the
law prescribed no limit below which the minimum rati,
might bo fixed and provided for a Flexible rule for tho
investigation and determination and the fixing of absolute
lesser rates than tho maximum. The interstate commerce
act invests its commission only with maximum rate pow
ers and loaves the railroad free to establish rates below the
maximum which tho commission may prescribe, but any
rate so fixed is open to attack.
The initiative law embodies the same principle of tho
Canadian law and the commerce act in that it merely pro
vides a maximum basis but does not fix an absolute rate,
hence it cannot make a "killing" for the railroads, "con
fiscate" their property nor ''restrict" the movement of
traffic, and as it is phrased in the simplest terms possible
:t is not "meaningless" unless simple English is so.
The fixing of ; maximum rate by the interstate com
merce commission .does not require that the carrier must
revise its entire schedule of rates, but it needs only to
revise the specific rate or schedule involved in the order.
The only present revision required under tho initiative
law is the class rate schedule based upon tho first class
rate and the carload rates arc automatically made in con
nection with the current classification of rates.
The interstate commerce commission says "the fairest
test of reasonableness of rates is earnings per car mile,"
and under this test and by way of illustrating the initiative
Jaw the following table is inserted showing the car mile
earnings, the reduction in rates to tho shipper, and the
increased net profit to tho carrier, b' tho consolidated
shipment under the percentage rule of the law. It is
assumed tho shipment moves 100 miles and is compared
with a less than carload rate of $1.00 for 100 peunds:
Car Mlto Shipper
Weight Amount Karnlngs per cw
Founds rato per car cents cent!
100 $1.00 S 1.00 1.
20.000 .70 110.00 H. 30
30.000 .69 177.00 17.7 41
40,000 .50 200.00 20. 00
100.000 .12 420.00 42. SS
The Southern Pacific company testified in court that
it cost at tho rate of 1GAG cents per ton per mile to move a
100 lcss-than-carload shipment 191 miles, while shipments
in 100,000 carload lots can bo moved from one to ono and
one-half mills per ton per mile. It will thus bo observed
that the relationship in the percentages prescribed by the
law between tho 100 pound shipment and the carload 'ship
ment follows a conservative
provides relief to tho shipper
to tlio railroad.
That tho principle embodied in the law is correct anv
person can prove by the application of the law to himself
as a transportation agency ot winch the railroad is but an
amplification, being a human invention with limitations
and operated by human intellect. For instance ji person
niaKing JU trips daily between two given points at a wage
of $3 per day would receive 10 cents per trip, and at public
hire for the carrying of goods his charges would be based
on this requirement. If he carried Ono ounce a trip, the
charge would be 10 cents per ounce, $l.(i0 per pound, and
if he carried 100 pounds per trip, ho could carry it for
one-tenth of ono cent per pound. This is the simple but
basic principle by which freight rate schedules must final
ly be prescribed by law, and this is the principle which
the people adopted in the uniform rate bill.
Tested by every common sense rule of cost and profit
and the principles of transportation incorporated in the
initiative law, it is a safe and sane measure. If fairly and
honestly applied by the camera, it will produce all the
revenue to which they are entitled, and do this without
any radical revision of tho current rates. The law docs not
say the railroad must apply the maximum percentage rule
to every commodity uiKjcr the present ratings for less than
carload shipment. TJic law merely prescribes that the
railroads "must not exceed" this percentage, but leaves
both the carrier and the railroad commission free to fix
absoluto rates below the maximum prescribed by the act.
A MODEST VIOLET IN THE GARDEN OF
AYOJt OKANT 13. DLMJCK of Oregon City, an
nounces through the Courier of that citv, his can
didacy for governor of Oregon.
IWr. Dimick is not a candidate because of any wide
spread popular demand for him. Ife is not a candidate
becaqso his record has ipiprcssod itself so indelibly upui
the minds of the people that they have called him from the
peaceful solicitudes of his native city. Jfo is not a candi
date because he represents any vituf principle or political
revolution in the affairs of man like his fellow townsman
UTfcn, who is also a candidate, and we have the word of
tho Courier that JMr. Dinunick is not a candidate "for the
advertising it will givo him or the help it may bo to his
law practice" but
"lie is a candidate because ho wants to be governor
a nil you can but he has no secondary objects in view."
Such modesty is dcligjitful in this immodest age and
it only needs be added that all !Mr. Dimmiok has to do is
to make the people want him as longingly as he wants the
office ai)d l)is election is assured.

Ashland people have loudly clamored for the improve
ment of tlio (Ireen Spring Mountain and Dead Indian
roads. This is made, possible by a special road levy in the
district affected in fact, conditions arc ncaily ideal in
that district for the special levy.
Tho southeast corner of tho county, including a portion
of Ashland, is in road district number one. Tho assess
ment of tlio district is as follews:
Lands held by noiwetldents 12.1)00,000
Property held by rorimrntloiiR, such a rallroadu, telephoning etc.
ns nHscssotl by the state tax commissions . t.flilo.OOO
Lands and other nro'rty held by people living In tho district.. .. ilOil.OOO
Total assessment of district . . it. 1 30.000
People living in the district would pay about one-seventh
of the assessment, uon-rosidonts, (and .speculators
and corporations, the other six-Sevenths'. Thus tho cost is
nearly all borne by non-residents, while the residents, who
are tho principal beneficiaries, pay but little. ,
If the Ashland people really want these roads improved
they havo the opportunity to help themselves.
Other districts have the same opportunitv.

When your stomach will not digest
