r Hyde Inspection Bill Is
? ' Attacked In Court
The constitutionality of " the law
law passed at the last session of the
state legislature providing that cattle
hides offered to common carriers for
shipment must first be inspected by a
duly authorized agent of the state, will
be attacked in the case of the state of
Oregon, appearing in relation to Kis
singer & Company of Portland, against
walker v. nines, director general or
the United States railroad administra
tion, . which is scheduled for hearing
before the supreme court tomorrow.
The suit is the outcome of tne rail
road's refusal to accept hides consign
ed to Kissinger & Company for ship
ment to Portland from Pendleton and
Eugene. Under the law the inspection
of hides pertains to all counties in the
state except Multnomah. It is charged
by attorneys for Bissingor & Company
that the act discriminates against cer
tain sections of the state, namely,
those counties outside of Multnomah,
and consequently is unconstitutional
and without effect.
