they worked as a group.
It is to utilizo -this tremendous mo

The work of the fodorutiou is now
being directed by a national committee
of prominent tiusiness wimen, select
ed from as widely varying localities
as possible, in order that each section
of the country will be represented.
Women, contrary to the general opin
ion, are born organisers. For years they
had only tho festive church social io
expend ftheir organisation talents upon,
but the church ane.ialg have always
raised the desired money, It may be
noticed. Then they tackled the cliTbe
and organised the educative campaigns
And when suffrago came along, they
built up an organization that many a

history, suffrage brought them togoth

feeling. And then eamo the war, thnt
taught them the value of unity in bus

Now that' they have started to or

A. L. Frcehafer, president of the pub

Frcehnffr explained to the United
Press that jobbing interests of Idaho,
especially those of Lewigton would be
damaged by Competition with Spokane
if the contention of the Columbia ports
prevailed, whereas wheat growing inter
eats of the state would be aided by a
lower freight rate.
Leonard Way, rate expert from Boise
who signed the petition with Freehatvr,
explained that should the water grade
contention prevail, Idaho would demand
that the long and short haul be estab
lished. "We have intervened," said Free-
hafer, "asking establishment of water

The Washington public service com
mission was first aide to the railroad

who, aa attorney for the IuUnd Em

Oatr&udcr, tho league s rate expert, at
Tho Inland Knipirc wheat growers
were plucked, according to West. They
are now squawking, he intimated.
Ostrander's answers were designed to
show that the northern mountain lines
to Puget Sound, aided by rulings of the
Washington commission, almost imper
ceptibly established the mount-in roads
of the Northern Pneifie aa tho base of
rate making and left the water routes
to follow much to tho disadvantage of
the Columbia basin and port i.ileiests.
West and Ostrandcr tried to ehow
that when the distance favors too water
grade, the rate is the same from coin
pctitiu territory. But When the water
grade distance ia greater than tne 1'uget
Sound the rate favors the mountain
route. The example selected was the
rate from North Yakima which to Se

rate arrangement permits the Northern

Portland at an advantage over the O.
