Assert That Percentage In
crease Wifl Work Hard
ship Upon Them
The Western Retail Lumbermen' As
sociation representing 1,200 netail deal
ers in twelve western states, with head
quarters at Spokane has addressed a
letter to Director McAdoo protesting
the 25 per tent increase in freight
rates, They point out that while it is
ostensibly the fair and proper way to
make the increase deemed necessary to
meet expenses, it practically is a great
discrimination against the west. The
increase in rates is in the nature of a
tax, and as such should be borne by all
the people alike.
It should be equally divided. As a
matter of fact the percentage system
legislates against those furthest from
the point of production. A man on the
Pacific, coast would under the percent-
fngn system pay $1.00 freight on 100
'pounds of clothing. The man in New
'York on the same material would pay
One cent. At tints suiue time the person
living at the point or production would
pay nothing. It will be seen that tine
Eer eentago Tate is discriminatory, and
i especially so as against the Pacific
Again it is pointed out that freight
rates on the coast are already double
what they ore iu the east, so that tho
westerner paving a straight 25 percent
increase on an already double rate pays
as compared to tho easterner, a 50 per
dent increase instead of 25. Instead
f this per centage plan the Association
suggests an increase of one cent per
hundred weight on all freight. It sug
gests that this would not cause even a
murmur, it being but 20 cents on the ton
lhe statistics for 1916 show the roads
hauled during the year 2,179,504,934,
tons of freight. It is estimated the in
crease is such that tnu yaar tho total
would bo not less than 2,500,000,000 tons
and one cent per 100 pounds on this
would raise 300,000,000. If, as it is
stated, the sum of $SOO,000,000 is need
ed to meet increased operating expen
ses, the demand should be met by mak
ing the increase per 100 pounds a cent
and three fifths on each 100 pounds.
This would raise the coin without any
protest frurq, anyone.
in tins connection the railroad com-,
mission of Washington has asked the!
Public Service commissions of Oregon!
and Idaho to meet with it and formu
late a protest or tak.9 some other appro-!
priute action, and it is probable there i
will be such s meeting coon at Portland, j

of Polk County, Cured of Cancer
of the Face.
To Whom It May Concern:
For six years I suffered with cancer
of the face. I was haunted by the real
ization that it was steadily becoming
worse. As a last resort I applied to
Dr. S. C. Stone for treatment. He ap
plied a remedy for a few days and the
cancer dropped completely out. I am
happy to say that I am now completely
free from the dreaded disease.
I cheerfully recommend Dr. Stone
and his treatment.
