The public service commission . held
a hearing yesterday at Hood River re
garding freight rates over the Oregon
Washington railway lines. , Tomorrow
there is an important hearing in Port
laud with regard to tho so called
Burleson schedule of rates on the lines
of the Pacific Telephone & Telegraph
company. Both the fairness and the
validity of the schedule has been chal
lenged, and a thorough investigation
will be made. As the rates affect a
large number of .communities it i$ ex
pectod that delegations of interested
citizens will be present. Possibly the
investigation will occupy several days.
Tn behalf of the eastern Oregon ship
pers, "who have long felt the handicap
of discriminatory rates under the pre
war schedule, H. Corey of the pub
lic service commission, has addressed
letters to members' of the committee
charged with draftinir legislation reg
ulating railroad operations under peace
conditions, urging favorable provis
ions of this territory.
John A. Perry of Bend has been
awarded the contract by State Engin
eer Cupper for the drilling of a num
ber of test holes into the bedrock at
the .Benham (Falls reservoir site, to de
termine whether it will retain water.
Several holes will be drilled to a depth
of from 20O to 300 feet, and a larger
number of lesser depth in order to
demonstrate whether the formation is
erupted or stratified in such a manner
as to allow water to drain away under
areat pressure. The investigations at
the Bite are in charge of Prof. W. O.
Crosby of the V. S. reclamation serv

Cars of the big five" packors are
granted "expedited service," the com
mission charges. - : i
"The cars of small independent pack
ers are misused and diverted," It say.s,
frequently being out of service for ex
tended periods, in sovcral instances for
as long as six months." '
The commission cites traffic figures
showing how this "expedited service"
works out to cnablo.tho "big five" to
deliver their products in quicker time
than their competitor. Cars of tho "big
five" in 191? .averaging 80.8 miles tr-

Tho "big five" on December 31,
1917, owned, according to the report,
15,154 brine tank cars, or about 90 per
cent of the total number in use.
In some cases, the commission charges,
railroads pay packers big allowances for
performance ol part of the transporta
tion service. Favorable arrangements
for the lease of stockyards to the pack
ers by the railroads also tend to make
favoritism of tho " big five" natural on
the part of the roads, the coniiiission
declares. Another factor the commis
sion says, is tho sale to tho railroads of
"bumper posts" which are manufuctur
