California Orchardisls Victorious In
Contentions Against Railroads, Se
curing Reduced Charges for Re
frigerating Fruit Cars.
A Reduction to $7.50 Per Car Or
dered From the $30 Rate Estab
llshed by Traffic Lines.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 20. Califor
nia fruit shippers won an important
victory in the supremo court today
here ngninst the Santa Ye, Southern
Pacific and Sail I'edro & Salt Lake
railroads in the so-called icing case.
The court sustained the order of til's
interstate commerce commission
grently reducing the charges for re
frigerating fmit curs nnd denied thnt
the railroads have the exclusive
privilege of icing- cars or that they
can prevent shipper's from pro-cooling
or prc-ieing their own enrs.
Whether the railroads carrying tho
bulk of oranges nnd other citrus
fruits from California have the ex
clusive right to refrigerate cars and
may prevent shippers from pre-eool-ing
nnd pre-iciug cars nt a lower
rate was the prime ipiestiou in tho
iping' oasTT Hoth tho I. C. t. nnd
commerce court decided in favor of
the shippers. On July ."5, 1000, the
Santa Fe, Southern Pacific and Salt
I.nke railroads amended thcic refrig
eration rules to provide a reduction
to $30 for tho use of refrigemtcd
enr pre-iccd and pre-coolcd nt the
shippers' warehouse, tho car being
sealed and not rc-icctl in trnnsit. Tho
rate for "stantliinl'' icing (refriger
ution ufter cars are loaded, with re
plenishing of ice en route) w
$02.f0 from thu coast io Chicago.
The 30 rate wns deeltired unrciisou
able by tho I. C. C. and ordered cut
to $7.50 per car. On May 4 the rail
roads attempted to withdraw the en
tire pro-icing privilege. They filed
mi injunction suit to set usidu thu
commission's order, lly pro-ieiug tho
shippers would stive ubout 4'iO0,ODO
Tho fotiiCn opinion wns rend by
Justice Lumttr. It held that tho rail
road's contention would result in nn
increase of ."i t per ear for shipping
fmit neross the country. Tho opin
ion held thnt until the railroads can
provide tho same pro-cooling uucom
modiitious us tire now enjoyed by thu
shippers as n result of their own fu
cilitics, tho railroads cannot deprive
the shippers of tho advantages of
their own procooling system.
