STATE OF IOWA, 
Board of Railroad Com missionbrs^ 

Dbs Moines. 
To the Honorable Albert B. Cummins, Governor of the State of 
Iowa: 
As provided by law^ we submit to you herewith the Twenty- 
eighth Annual Report of this Board, The report contains the 
tabulation of such statistics with reference to the operation of 
steam and electric interurban railways as are required by law and 
this Commission; the decisions of the Commissioners; a record 
of all inspections and hearings and a brief notice of each case 
closed by the Board during the year. 

NEW LINES in IOWA. 

Only 23.25 additional mileage of steam railroads is reported 
this year. Of this 19.60 miles is reported by the Chicago, Ana* 
mosa & Northern, a new corporation operating a line from 
Anamosa to Coggon. The balance is due to changes and 
additions. 

ELECTRIC INTERURBAN RAILWAYS. 

During the year closing June 30th, 1905, 71.358 miles of 
additional electric interurban railways are reported, the total 
mileage of such railways now being 177.018. The new lines 
reporting are the Cedar Rapids & Iowa City, operating from 
Cedar Rapids to Iowa City, 27.63 miles, and the Iowa & Illinois, 
operating from Davenport to Clinton, 36.012 miles. 

INTERLOCKING DEVICES. 

There have been three interlocking devices for the protection 
of railroads crossing each other at grade, installed during the past 
year. These are: 

Rockwell City, crossing of Illinois Central, Newton & North- 
western and Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul; 

Iowa Falls, crossing of Illinois Central and Chicago Rock 
Island & Pacific; 



4 TWENTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 

Spencer, crossing of Chicago, Milwaukee & Saint Paul and 
Minneapolis & St. Louis. 

While there are many railroad crossings at grade that are 

provided with interlocking devices, the Commission would advise 

that many more be so equipped. The Commission should be 

clothed with authority to order the construction and maintenance 

of such devices where it is believed they arc necessary for the 

safety of the public and railway employes. Such devices are an 

element of economy in the operation of trains^ and subject to 

.inspection by the Commission. 

The Commissioners desire also to call attention to the frequent 
disregard of the law requiring trains to stop and whistle 

before crossing another railroad track at grade \Yhere such 

^crossing is not equipped with interlocking system, 

• In the interest of public safety railroad companies should issue 

strict orders to their employes to observe these provisions of the 

law. 

INSPECTION OF RAILWAYS. 

The Commissioners have followed their previous practice of 
inspection into the physical condition of the railroads of Iowa. 
Some complains have reached the Board with reference to the 
inferior conditions of some of the branch lines, and it seenf^ to 
the Commissioners that in many instances the railway companies 
are not keeping the roadbeds, track and depots on branch lines 
in as good condition as they should. Ttiere has been no serious 
defect that the Commissioners have noticed, but the general 
conditions of many of the branch lines are not^good. In some few 
instances the Commissioners have found that there were con- 
ditions on the main lines of some of the companies that needed 
attention, such as inferior ties, frogs and switches, inadequate 
depots and their sanitary condition. Upon the attention of the 
companies being called to these matters they have generally 
made such improvements and repairs as the Commission thought 
necessary for public safety. 

It may be said that upon all the trunk lines in this state con- 
ditions are improving. Better roadbed, better equipment, and, 
in most cases, better service seems to be the rule. However, 
upon some of the branch lines the Commission believes that the 
* equipment and service afforded have hardly been adequate to 



BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 6 

meet the demands. In some of these cases the Boar has sug- 
gested to the companies that better train service and better 
equipment should be provided, and many of these suggestions, 
made after careful investigatioft by the Commission, have been 
fairly well followed. 

The Commissioners in their inspections have found on the 
various road? some of the •stock yards inadequate for the terri- 
tory surrounding the stations where such stockyards are located. 
In some instances the stock yards are poorly equipped, lacking 
water and drainage, with gates and fences out of repair, and in 
other respects not so well kept as public necessity requires. 
These conditions are not general, but a sufficient number have 
been noticed so that the Commissioners feel justified ^in calling 
attention to this subject. It may be said, however, that where 
the Board has called the attention of the railroad companies, to 
these conditions they have been reasonably diligent in making 
such repairs and improvements as were found necessary for the 
convenience of stock shippers. 

It must be conceded that the railroad companies are operating 
live stock trains in a manner much more satisfactory to the stock 
shippers than formerly. In this connection we would refer to 
this subject in our report for 1904. 

OPERATION OF TRAINS. 

The Commission has had before it quite a number of com- 
plaints regarding the operation of trains. 

There seems to the Commission a general disposition on the 
part of the operating departments to increase their tonnage hau. 
to such an extent as to make it extremely burdensome to train 
men to get their trains over the roads and make their schedule 
time, resulting in more or less danger to the public and railway 
employes, as well as hazarding property. In many cases rail- 
way companies are using what is called ** Double Headers", 
Engines of heavy type and capacity, thus increasing the dangeii 
to' employes, to property and to the public. Running such 
double headers is often times a severe test upon the road bed^ 
superstructure, bridges and equipment. 

The board recommends that the several roads operating in 
Iowa should exercise great caution along these lines. 

While the Board may lack specific authority in the matter of. 
** Double Headers ", it would like the custom entirely eliminated. 



6 TWENTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 

ACCOMMODATIONS FOR PASSENGERS. 

In the report of this Board for 1903 attention was called to the 
fact that many of the railway cotppanies during holidays, meet* 
ingSy conventions, excursions, etc., did not furnish sufficient 
accommodation for passengers; that cars were crowded in many 
instances so that the aisles were filled with standing people, 
making traveling very inconvenient, disagreeable and dangerous. 
The Board believes that the companies have done much better 
the past year in this regard, but there is still room for improve- 
ment and the Commissioners quote the following from their 
former report along this line: 

Somt of tht rules aod regulations made by certain of the carriers in the 
State with reference to procuring additional coaches is so closely guarded 
aad the authority is given in such a way and to such an official, that it may 
be well said that the rules are an obstruction instead of an advantage both 
to the railway company aod the traveling public. If a rule should be made 
that unless a passenger is provided with proper :?nd suitable accommodations, 
he should not be required to pay transportation therefor, it might in many 
ways greatly embarass the railway company, and the Railroad Commissioners 
can see where that would or might create much dissension or dissatisfaction 
between the public and the common carrier; but unless there is more atten- 
tion given to this subject by the common carrier and more ample provision 
made whereby the conductor or some other competent ;or capable person 
who may know the true situation and who may without unnecessary delay 
bring into requisition additional coaches which may be required, the Rail* 
road Commissioners of the State feel as though more stringent and adequate 
rules than are now in force within the State, should be provided. 

HIGHWAY AND FARM CROSSINGS. 

It has bcenjfour years since the Board called specific attention 
to this subject in^its Annual Report and each year thereafter it has 
reaffirmed its position taken in 1900. A great many complaints 
reach the Board annually concerning farm and highway 
crossing, and there is but little guidance for the Board in :he 
statute. In all cases the Board undertakes to bring the parties 
together in an effort to effect a satisfactory adjustment and in 
most instances have succeeded in doing so. However, the Board 
again quotes upon this subject from its report for 1900: 

"It has been the object and purpose of the railway companies, among 
other things, to strengthen and render more safe and substantial the 
roadbed and tracks throughout the State. In many instances the excavations 
and obstructions caused thereby have interfered with the view of approach- 
ing trains over highway crossings, and these new conditions are making the 
same more or less hasardous. 



BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONBRS. i 

*'With raference to the farm crossings, many woodenltrestles and athor 
■tmctores that from an early day, in addition to acting as waterways 
tiiroagh the railway company's embankments, have been used as under 
farm crossings, are now being replaced with stone and other substantia] 
construction, which in many instances, has had the effect of destroying the 
uder farm crossings. 

**It has been theluniform policy of this Board to encourage under or 
«««rhead highway and private crossings, where the constructions were 
feasible and the expense thereof not unreasonable. 

"While the Supreme Court in this State has held, in several cases, that a 
leimde crossing is the rule within the State, yet we believe that the time is not 
fsr distant when such decisions may be modified . 

* 'As we have said in our last report, private or public] crossings at grade, 
amy have been heretofore reasonably safe, yet, where the ' constructions are 
ao changed, that is, obstructions along the company's! right! of way which 
aray interfere more or less with the view of approaching trains, the increased 
aamber of trains and the greater speed thereof, • rendering such crossings 
more hasardous and dangerous to the lives of those using the highway as 
wM as the traveling public and the employes of the railway company, 
together with the increased number of such crossings, a different and more 
lii>eral and reasonable rule may be required in order that such crossings may 
be reasonably safe . " 

COMPARATIVE STATISTICS. 

We continue in this report the comparative statistical tables. 
For Iowa: mileage; earnings; operating expenses; net earnings; 
net earning per mile of road; number of railroad employes and 
the amount paid to them annually; and average wage per day; 
the total number of cars in use, number of same equipped with 
automatic couplers and train brakes, and the total number of 
employes killed and injured while coupling cars or falling from 
trains, with total number of passengers, employes and others 
killed and injured, in Iowa.

Complaint filed June 11, 1903. 

STATEMBNT OF FACTS AND OPINIOKS. 

The following complaint in substance was filed with the Board of Rail- 
road Commissioners against the Chicago, Milwaukee & Saint Paul Railway 
Company: 

Complainants allege and state: 

That the Chicago, Milwaukee & Saint Paul Railway Company own and have operated 
for a number of years a line of road In and near the south boundary of Jackson county^ 



BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONBRS. 221 

Iowa, through the incorporated towa of PrcBton, Iowa, a station for fright anA 
passengers, haying a population of about six hundred. 

That in the year 1901 for purposes of their own thej constructed another line north 
of their main line between the stations of Green Island, Jackson county, and Browaa, 
Clinton coxnty, that In general they follow the course of the Maquoketa riTer along 
the south shore. 

That about midway between the two last above mentioned stations said new Una 

of road runs through the Tillage of SpragueTille with a population of about one hundredi 

That Spragueyllle has been a postoffice snd an inland trading point for nearly sixty 

years. That t]|ey receiye daily mail from trains; that it is a money-office and has 

proposed rural free deliyery mail routes into the body of the country. 

That near this point there is a county bridge across the Maquoketa riyer and by 
reason thereof all adjacent county roads conyerge at that point. 

That residents north, east and west thereof are now compelled to cross the track* 
at this point and contfune four miles beyond to the town of Preston for railroad 
accomodations. 

That the number to be convenienced are fifteen hundred. 

That the village of Spragueyllle is in every way a suitable location for tracks, 
switches and station grounds. That traius would have no heavy or excessive grades 
to contend against in enteriug and leaving the proposed station in either direction. 

That said railroad now maintains a station located three miles east thereof called 
''Rockaway" on the south shore of the Maquoketa river and affords no accomodations 
to the public that would be benefited by a station at Spragueyllle In the territory east, 
west and north thereof, and that the station of Rocka^ny is nearly inaccessible from all 
direcions by reason of the topography of the country. 

That by reason of its peculiar geographical and topographical location, the county 
of Jackson is the only county in the state of Iowa without any railroad facilities for 
the interior of the county. That the Milwaukee operates lines on the extreme northern, 
eastern and southern boundaries of the county, and that the Milwaukee and Northwestern 
have lines across the southwest corner thereof. 

That the station of Rockaway is nearly inaccessible by reason of lack of public 
highways to people on the south shore of the Maquoketa river and from the territory 
north, east and west thereof is inaccessible by reason of no public highways and no 
means to crews the Maquoketa river. 

That the facilities afforded to the general public by the station of Rockaway are nU, 

That the prospective freight business at the proposed station of SpragueviUe would 

be about three hundred cars to four hundred cars annually ; which said business must 

all now be handled from other stations to the great loss and detriment of the general 

public. 

That In the spring usually and at all times during high water by reason of the over- 
flow of Sugar Creek and Deep Creek, the public highway between Spragueyllle and 
Preston becomes Impassable for hauling grain, livestock and other commodities. 

Wherefore complainants pray for the establishment of a station and shipping point 
for forwarding and receiving freight, as is reasonable and expedient in order to 
promote the security, convenience and accomodation of the public. *'We especially ask 
and pray that the Railroad Commissioners inspect the said situation and report their 
findings according to law, and for such other and further relief as may be deemed 
equitable and proper in the premises." 

That several other complaints touching the same subject matter were filed with the 
Board, signed by many persons who were also Interested in the same subject matter, 
residing at and near SpragueviUe and within Jackson county. That copies of these 
petitions together with a letter by the Commission were addressed to the Chicago, Mil- 
waukee & Saint Paul Railroad company, and a reply requested thereto. The reply made 
by the Railway company is that, in 1901 the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railway 
Company built a new line between the stations of Browns and Green Island 
for the purpose of securing an ea.sier grade line for its business between Marlon 
and Savannah. The distance between the stations of Browns and Green Island is thir- 
teen and nine-tenths miles. That it was necessary to have a track midway between 
these points for use In- meeting and passing trains. The only place where the grade 



222 TWENTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 

line was suitable for such a track was six and seven-tenths miles from Oreen Island 
jind seven and tw^tenths miles from Browns where it established a track known tm 
Bockaway. That there are no towns between Green Island and Browns «nd nothing 
1>at through passenger and freight trains are operated over this line. The local 
[Musenger trains and the way freight trains still continue to run by Blk Blver Junction 
tn order to accommodate the business of the towns of Tweed's Groye, Miles and Preston. 
The new line between Browns and Green Island passes within a short distance from 
;the cross roads where the postofflce of Spragueyille is located, and has been for a 
great many years. The track on the new line in the ytelnlty of BpragneylUe is on 
tthe maximum or flre-tenths grade. 

The railway company alleges that It would not be practicable to establish a station 
at this place as freight trains going west If compelled to stop at that place, it would be 
impossible for them to get started again ; and further alleging there is always more or 
less danger in maintaining a station on maximum grade. 

A great deal of correspondence has passed between the Board and the respectlTe 
parties with reference to the conditions and feasibility of the establishment of a station 
at Spragueyille, as well as a discussion of the condition of the passing track at 
E#cluLway, and the surrounding country, which might be benefited by a station, as well 
MM the character of the public highways leading to the Rockaway station or passing trade. 
A time was fixed by the Board for a hearing, it appearing to the Board that no 
Amicable adjustment could be reached by the parties to this controyersy, at Sprague- 
yille, due notice haying first been giyen by the Board to all interested parties. At 
this hearing the complainants were represented by Messrs. Cole & Cole, and the railway 
-company by Mr. J. H. Foster, Superintendent of the Chicago, Milwaukee A Saint Paul 
Railway Company. A full opportunity was giyen at this hearing to all parties to 
present such complaints as they might have with reference to the matter under consld- 
<eration, and many of the farmers and business men of that locality were heard by the 
Board. After the statements were submitted to the Board, a yery full and exhausUye 
argument was made by Messrs. Cole & Cole in behalf of the complainants, and Mr. Foster 
in behalf of the railway company presented Its side of the case. At this hearing 
-certain estimates to be made by the engineers of the different parties, were to be 
submitted to the Board, particularly with reference to the character of the surrounding 
country and its topography at and near the station of Rockaway. The facts and 
conditions as disclosed by the Inyestigation made by the Board, are substantially &9 
follows : 

That in 1901 the Chicago, Milwaukee & Saint Paul Railway Company constructed a 
line of railway in a westerly direction from Green Island and extending through 
-Spragueville to the station of Brown. That this line between the station of Green 
Island and Brown is a distance of a little over thirteen miles. That there are no 
•established stations between the two points (Green Island and Browns), and that it was 
•the purpose and object of the railwtiy company In the construction of such line to use 
It for what might be termed "through business", that grade being a much easier and 
lighter grade than the old line running parallel thereto and in a southerly direction 
therefrom. 

We find that the town of Spragueyille has a postofflce, creamery, blacksmith shop, 
and such other accommodations usually and ordinarily maintained in towns of the char- 
acter of one hundred inhabitants or thereabouts. We find that the surrounding country 
IB deyoted largely to stock raising as well as other agricultural products. That Sprague- 
yille is situated a little over three miles from the town of Preston, a sUtion on the 
Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway, which is the trading point of Spragueyille and 
the Immediate surrounding country and vrtLS prior to the construction of this new line. 
That Preston is a town of about eight hundred to one thousand inhabitants. 

We further find that the highways in and around this locality during the heayy 
rains in the spring of the year are not always in a condition to admit of the hauling of 
lieayy traffic. We find as a matfer of fact, there is or will be a substantial improye- 
ment of the highway between the town of Spragueylllb and the town of Preston. We 
further find that the highways such as are now established, and those which it haa 
heen suggested may be established in and around Rockaway on account of the topogra- 
phy of the country, are inadequate and wholly insufficient for the use of and in trans- 
porting the ordinary farm products, and that Rockaway is not a suitable point or place 



BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 223 

for the eBtabllshment or maintaining of a station on accannt of the condition of the 
\ilghway8 and the wet and low character of some of such highways, and that a large 
amount of money wx>uld be required to place such highways in a suitable conditimL 
We find that at Spragueyille where it was suggested that the station should be 
construeted and maintained, is a point at the maximum grade of the railway betweoi 
the stations of Green Island and Browns; but at a point about eighty rods west 
of the one suggested and upon and at the next highway crossing, a station might 
be maintained so far as the grade is concerned. While it would not be the beet and 
most feasible point in that respect, yet the character of the grade is not such that 
it wx>uld prohibit the maintenance of a station at that point. 

Section 2113 of the Code of 1897, deflning the duties and powers of the 

Railroad Commission, is as follows: 

"It shall from time to time carefully examine into and inspect the condition of 
each railroad, its equipment and the manner of its conduct and management with 
regard to the public safety and convenience in the state ; make semi-annual exami- 
nation of its bridges, and report the condition thereof to the company to which they 
belong; and if found by it unsafe it shall immediately notify the railroad company 
whose duty it Is to put same in repair, which shall be done by it within ten days 
after receiving such notice. If any corporation falls to perform this duty, the Board 
may forbtd and prevent It from > running trains over the same while unsafe. When 
in the judgment of the Board, any railway corporation falls in any respect to comply 
with the terms of its charter or articles of Incorporation or the lawis of the state; 
or when in its judgment any repairs are necessary upon its road ; or any addition 
to its rolling stock, or addition to or change in its stations or station houses, or 
change in its rates of fare for transporting freight or passengers, or change in the 
mode of operating its road or conducting its business, is reasonable and expedient 
Am oi*der to promote the security, convenience or accommodation of the public, the 
Board shall serve a notice upon such corporation, in the manner provided for the 
service of an original notice in a civil action, which notice shall be signed by its 
secretary, of the changes and improvements which it finds to be proper ; and a report 
of such proceedings shall be included in its annual report to the governor as pro- 
vided in the next section ; but nothing in this section shall be so construed as reliev- 
ing any railroad company from Its present responsibility or liability for damage to 
person or property." 

While section 2103 expressly refers to station houses at crossings, that is, where 
one railroad crosses another, and while It may be urged that the legislature having 
in mind th'e subject of stations, and having only expressly extended the authority of 
the Board of Railroad Commissioners for the establishment of station houses at such 
crossings, that by implication authority was not extended to the Board to require 
rail carriers to build and maintain depots at other points along the railway, yet 
there may be a distinction and difference bet^-^en station houses as used by the statute 
and the term "depot and depot grounds". Be that as it may, we do not feel called 
upon at this time to express any opinion upon this branch of the case, it not hay- 
ing been raised or presented to the Board at this hearing. 

The only case construing section 2113, so far as we are now advised, is the case 
of the State of Iowa, appellant, v. Des Moines & Kansas City Railway Company, 
appellee, reported beginning on page 644, hi Iowa Reports. In this case the Board 
of Railroad Commissioners made an order against the railroad company, requiring 
it to reestablish and maintain a station on its line of railway at a place called 
"Leslie". The railroad company refused to carry out the order of the Commissioners 
and an action was brought by the attorney general to compel the railway company 
to comply with such order. Tliere was a trial thereon in the District Court of Polk 
county, and the district court after hearing the testimony of a large number of wit- 
nesses, entered a decree dismissing the petition, and the case was appealed to the 
Supreme Court, and the judgment of the district court was affirmed. Near the end 
of the opinion the court uses this language : "It appears to us that the owners of 
the road should not be Interfered with in the management of their property. Includ- 
ing the location of their stations, where as in this case there is no competent evi- 
dence that any patron of the road has been deprived of reasonable facilities for 
the transaction of business with defendant."

No. 2907-1905. 

APFANOOSB COUNTY, ) 

vs. f 

CHICAGK). BURLINGTON ft QUINCY RAIL- f ^^^^^ff^ 

ROAD COMPANY, ) 

Complaint filed July 31st, 1905. 

Decision of Commissionebs. 

The matter submitted before the Board in this case is a proposed change in 
the course of several miles of the Charlton river, which, it is claimed, becomes 
necessary in the construction of what may be termed a public ditch for the pur- 
pose of reclaiming and draining agricultural lands situated and being in Appa- 
noose county. The proposed construction of said ditch and the diversion of 
that part of the Chariton river which is involved in this case, crossing a branch 
of the Chicago, Burlington ft Quincy Railroad in said Appanoose county at the 
point or place where it is proposed to construct said ditch and divert said 
stream across the right of way of said railway. 

The land is low, wet and swampy, and the railway at the present time has 
constructed a wooden structure or trestle work for several hundred feet. The 
height of said trestle work is from seven to ten feet above the natural surface of 
the ground and is several hundred feet in length. 

The statute under which the Board of Railroad Commissioners is required 

to act with reference to matters of this kind provides that if the engineer in 

charge and the railway company cannot agree, or if the railroad company should 

fall, neglect or refuse to confer with the engineer in charge, the county auditor 

shall at once notify the Railroad Commissioners in writing by registered letter 
of the failure of the engineer in charge and the railroad company to agree, and 

it shall be the duty of the Railroad Commissioners to proceed within thirty days 

to view the premises and to hear the parties in relation thereto, giving to the 

county auditor and railroad company notice by registered letter of the time 

when they will view said premises and hear the parties, when notice shall be 

mailed to each party at least ten days prior to the time fixed for such hearing. 



BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 23 1 

All the provisions of this part of the law have been fuly carried out, the 
spective notices having been received by the auditor and by the railroad com- 
pany with reference to the time and place of the hearing by the Commissionen^ 
and in pursuance thereof on the 29th day of August, 1905, upon the premises i)r 
controversy, that is the place where the ditch is proposed to cross the railroaci^ 
track, the Railroad Commission duly viewed the premises and heard the respec- 
tive parties. The county auditor together with his attorney, Mr. Baker, and the 
engineer in charge appearing on the part of those inerested in the ditch, and the 
railroad company being represented by its engineer and Mr. Payne, Its attorney; 

Upon the hearing it became apparent there was no substantial controversy 
existing between the railroad company and the engineer in charge, with refer- 
ence to the place where said proposed diversion of the stream should cross the 
railroad company's track, or the manner or method of such improvements. The 
only question which seemed to be involved in the controversy existing between 
the railroad company and those interested in the drainage was whether or not 
a steel, stone and cement structure for several hundred feet over and across 
the low and swamp ground where the present wooden structure now used by the 
railroad company, should take the place of the wooden structure, and the coet 
and expense thereof charged up to and included In the drainage assessment. 
It would seem as though this question was more In harmony with how the 
tracks of the railroad company should cross the ditch, and not how the diteh 
and the improvement thereof should be constructed across the railroad jcom- 
pany's right of way. 

If there was a controversy between the parties with reference to the width 
which might properly be used in carrrying the ditch and Improvements acrMs 
the company's right of way, possibly the Railroad Commissioners might have 
Jurisdiction, but there seemed to be no controversy in that respect. 

It was claimed and contended at this hearing that the natural fall of the 
Chariton river where it was diverted into the ditch would gradually cut and 
carry away much of the earth and that the ditch would gradually become deep- 
er and wider; but, has the Board of Railroad Commissioners anything to do 
with that part of it? If it had, it might determine what it would deem a 
proper and reasonable width and depth across the company's right of way^ 
after hearing testimony in relation thereto; it might be possible for it to 
determine that the width of this ditch should not exceed a certain distance, 
and that the sides of this ditch where it crosses the company's right of way 
should be properly protected, so that it would not cut or carry away additional 
earth, and thereby make the ditch wider. 

It was requested at the time of this hearing that action of the Board of 
Railroad Commissioners should be deferred until the parties could have an 
opportunity to see whether or not an amicable adjustment could be reached 
The Board is in receipt of notice from one of the parties claiming they do not 
care to carry on fuivlier negotiations in that regard, and asking that the Board 
decide this matter. 

The Board of Railroad Commissioners has reached the conclusion that ^ 
there is no controversy between the parties with reference to the place where 
the ditch crosses the railroad tracks and right of way. and the method and

mniuier of such improvement, that it ia without JuriBdiction and therefore holds 
that it is not a proper matter at this time to bring before the Board. The Board 
of Railroad Commissioners being without jurisdiction, therefore dismissee the 
liroceedings.

No. 2908—1905. 

In the matter of the proposed Viaduct over Wall Street in the City of Sioux 
City, Iowa. 

Decision of the CoMiiisioksBS. 

On the 7th day of February ,1905, the City of Sioux City enacted an ordi- 
nance known as Ordinance No. G 885, which is as follows: 

ORDINANCE NO. 6 885. 

An ordinance declaring the necessity of constructing a viaduct on Wall street 
from the south line of Fourth to the North curb line^ of Grand Street, at ex- 
pense of railways hereinafter named. 
Be It Ordained by the City Council of the City of Sioux City, lotoa: 

Section 1. That it be and Is hereby declared necessary for the safety and pnh 
tection of the public to construct a viaduct on Wall Street from the sooth line of 
Fourth Street to the north curb line of Grand Street oyer and above the tracks of 
the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha Railway Company, the* Union Terminal 
ftallway Company, the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway Company, the Chicago 
it Northwestern Railway Company and the Illinois Central Railroad Company, and 
titervening grounds on said Wall Street, according to plans and speclficatioiis to be 
prepared by the City Engineer, and that it is proposed to construct bbmb at expense 
of said railway companies. 

Section 2. That the City Engineer be and is hereby Instructed to forthwith pro- 
pare plans and specifications for said viaduct and submit the same to the City Coim- 
cil for consideration and so that the same may be submitted to the Board of Rail- 
road Commissioners, as provided by law. 

Section 3. This ordinance shall take effect from and after its passage and pub- 
lication, as provided by law. 

Passed, February 7, 1905. 
Approved, February 8, 1905. 

(Signed) W. G. SEARS, Mayor. 

(Signed) A. A. SMITH, City Clerk. 
Published, Union Advocate. February 9, 1905. 

That said ordinance was signed, approved and published on the 9th day ot 
February, 1905. 

That on the 27th day of February, 1905, said ordinance together with the 
plans and specifications of the viaduct therein proposed was transmitted to the 
Board of Railroad Commissioners at its office in Des Moines, Iowa. Subsequent 
thereto and on or about the 2nd day of May, 1905, due notice thereof having 
been given to all railways interested therein, as well as the city of Sioux City» 
a hearing was had by the Board of Railroad Commissioners at Sioux City, at 
which time the City of Sioux City was represented by Mr. J. N. Weaver, the 
Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha Railway by Mr. A. F. Call, the Illinois 
Central Railway Company by W. S. Kenyon, the Chicago ft Northwestern Rail- 
way Company by James C. Davis, and the Chicago, Milwaukee ft St. Paul Rail- 
way Company by W. H. Farnsworth. The difPerent railways made answer to 
the proceedings herein substantially as follows: 



BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 233 

Ist. That there is no necessity for a yladuct at the point proposed by the City 
Coancll of Sioux City, as set forth in said ordinance on Wall Street from the Mratb 
line of Foorth Street to the north line of Grand Street oyer and above the raiiroad 
tracks, now located at said point, for the rea8oi\ that the amount of travel at said 
point does not justify the large expense which would be Incurred in the construe- 
tioB of said Ttaduct. 

2nd. That at this time there is no necessity for said viaduct and it would not 
be proper to order the same, for the reason that other railroad interests about to 
make large improvements in the City of Sioux City, contemplate an elevated track, 
which would pass over the point of the proposed viaduct. That the construction of 
the viaduct at this point If intersected by the proposed elevated line, would make 
a siirface crossing on the said viaduct, which would be undesirable, and would destroy 
the usefulness and purpose of said viaduct, and if the contemplated elevated line 
is to be constructed, the viaduct would have to be constructed, especially with ref- 
erence to that proposed construction. 

3rd. That the proposed viaduct wx)uld be constructed over a large area of ground 
not occupied by tracks of any of the railroads that are parties to this proceeding, 
and soch viaduct wx>uld be constructed over a large area of ground not occupied by 
any railroad tracks. That the power of cities to order the construction of a rhtr 
duct is limited to such viaduct as passes over or under railroad tracks, and thera 
is no authority on the part of the city council or on the part of the Railroad Com- 
mission to require the construction of a viaduct over large areas of ground that ara 
not occupied by the tracks of railroads, or used for railroad purposes and that no 
provision has been made by the City of Sioux City to bear the cost of the construc- 
tion of said viaduct over said unoccupied spaces. 

4th. It is further objected, that no provision has been made by the City of 
Sioux City, by ordinance or otherwise, that it will furnish, without cost or expense 
to the railroad companies which are expected to construct said viaduct, the right 
of way for the approaches of said viaduct, as provided by law. 

5th. It is further submitted that Ordinance No. G 885, passed February 7th, 
1905, by the City Council of the City of Sioux City, entitled "an Ordinance declar- 
ing the necessity of constructing a viaduct on Wall Street from the south line of 
Fourth to the Nortb curb line of Grand Street, at expense of the raillways here- 
inafter named", is void, for the reason that the several railway companies at whose 
expense the said viaduct Is proposed to be constructed, had no notice or knowledge 
of the proposed passage of said ordinance, and no opportunity to appear before the 
City Council of Sioux City, and present any objections which there might be to the 
construction of the said viaduct ; and the provisions of the Code of Iowa, provid- 
ing that "The council shall fix a time and place where It will consider such matters 
and any objections that may be made to the construction of said viaduct and 
approaches thereto", were not observed, and, therefore, the said ordinance was passed 
without Jurisdiction on the part of the said City Council, and is void and of no effect. 

6th. The plans and specifications for the proposed viaduct contemplate a struc- 
ture unnecessarily large and unnecessarily expensive to accommodate the present and 
prospective travel over the same, and are, therefore, unreasonable and unnecessary for 
the safety of the traveling public. 

7th. That the statutes under which the proceedings have been taken by the 
City Council, and under which these proceedings are now being conducted, are in con- 
trovention of the constitution of the state of Iowa, and also of the United States. 
They are in controventlon of section Nine of Article One of the constitution of Iowa, 
in that the said section of the statute does not provide for any hearing before any 
tribunal having Judicial powers, in which hearing the rights of the railroad com- 
panies can be determined, and said statutes provide for the taking of the property 
of the railroad companies without due process of law. That said statutes are void 
and unconstitutionel. because they violate the Fourteenth Amendment to the Consti- 
tution of the United States, in that the said statutes nowhere provide for any hear- 
ing before any Judicial tribunal, and no day in court in which the rights of tlM 
railroad companies may be heard, and Judicially determined; for which reason the 
statutes do not constitute due process of law, and provide for the taking of the 
property of the railroad companies without due process of law. 



234 TWENTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL REPORT CF THE 

Wherefore the Railroad Commission is asked to with-hold its approval as 
to the necessity of the proposed viaduct, and its approval of the plans proposed 
and submitted by the city of Sioux City. 

No appearance was made on the part of the Great Northern Railway Com- 
pany or of the Union Terminal Railway Co., although the latter company had 
due and proper notice of the meeting and hearing of the Railroad Commis- 
sioners. 

The railroad companies also contended that the Great Northern railroad 
company should be made a party to this proceeding. 

That before this hearing the Board of Railroad Commissioners gave all par- 
ties Interested in the proceedings a full and ample opportunity to present sues 
facts and conditions as they might deem advisable; that the Board Inspected 
and viewed the premises in controversy and listened to the respective state- 
ments made by each and all parties as well as the arguments pro and con. 

The following facts are fairly established by the testimony over which there 
seems to be but little, if any, controversy : 

l8t. That ruDDing parallel with Wall Street and running north and south, begin- 
ning on the soath line of Fourth street to the North line of Grand street, there 
are Iowa on the west and Howard on the East, as well as other streets ; that the 
distance of the superstructure of the proposed yiaduct is about 924 feet, and that 
the entire length including approaches is about 1850 feet; that the height of the 
superstructure from the surface street grade is about 27 feet; and that the Unlaa 
Terminal Company operates over Iowa street, which is the next adjacent street to 
Wail street, and over the different tracks of the respective railways and at the same 
surface grade, a street car system, carrying many passengers daily to and fro thereon; 
that between the south line of Fourth street and the north line of Grand street and 
over which it is proposed to construct this viaduct, the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis 
ft Omaha Railway Company, the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway Companyt 
the Chicago & Northwestern Railway Company and the Illinois Central Railroad Com- 
pany have about fifteen railway tracks, some of which are side, spur and storage 
tracks over which many trains are operated daily, together with several switch engines 
which are used in the handling of the railway business of the respective lines, this 
being a terminal point of all the lines except the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis ft 
Omaha Railway, and the C. M. ft St. P. Ry., and it being the division point of said 
railroads; that Sioux City is a place of about 41,000 Inhabitants. That its growth la 
snbstantial, expansive and progressive. 

East of the business portion of Sioux City there are large stock yard and pack- 
ing house interests where about 1500 people are dally employed, and also a suburb 
of Sioux City known as Morningslde of a considerable populntlon. That a street car 
system dally carries a large passenger traflSc between these respective places. 

That it was further disclosed upon said hearing that at and prior to the pas- 
sage of said ordinance concerning the proposed construction of the viaduct, the respect- 
ive railway companies had no notice thereof. 

Further that the City Council of Sioux City by ordinance granted and extended 
the right to the Great Northern Itallway Company to build and construct an ele- 
vated railroad with double trucks, crossing and Intersecting nt the same point or 
grade as thot of the proposed viaduct, said elevated road to be constructed on or before 



That it was further shown that about l.'>0 feet of the Intervening property, over 
which the proposed viaduct is to be constructed between the south line of Fourth 
Street and the North line of Grand Street Is not occupied or owned by any or either 
of the respective railway companies, the same being what may be termed private 
property. 

That It is further shown without dispute, that no action of the City Council of 
Sioux City has been taken respecting the closing or obstructing of the surface of 
the street now traveled by pedestrians, teams and vehicles upon Wall Street over which 
it Is proposed to construct the viaduct. 



BOARD QF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 235 

That it further appears from the facts as disclosed at this hearing that the City 
Conncil by proper ordinance, or the residents of Sioux City, have in no wise pro- 
Tided or granted to the Union Terminal Company or any other street railway thv 
right or franchise to use that part of Wall treet oyer which it is proposed to eoB* 
struct said yiaduct. That it clearly appears from the undisputed facts as discloseil 
upon this hearing that the City Council have in no wise attempted to regulate, pro- 
hibit or obstruct the travel of passengers, teams or yehicles, or other means of 
trayel orer the surface of either Wall, Iowa or any other streets running parallel 
and adjacent to said Wall street, and over the railroad tracks, or in any other iray» 
to divert and compel the public to use said proposed viaduct, if constructed. It mm 
conceded, as we understand the record, that the cost of this viaduct would be |226»- 
000 or $230,000. 

That it further appears without dispute that there is other outlying reeidene* 
property within the limits of Sioux City that depends upon the Union Terminal C<mii- 
pany for its means of transportation, as well as many other residents who are required 
to pass to and fro over the different railway tracks over which it is proposed to 
construct this viaduct. The question of the necessity of the viaduct is one that was 
earnestly contested 'by the respective railway companies. 

It was disclosed by the testimony of the witnesses in behalf of the city of Bionz 
City that the travel for passengers, teams and other vehicles as well as the street 
cars, was greatly impeded by reason of the msmber of railway tracks and the mord- 
ment of cars and engines thereon, by those wlio had occasion to traverse over thea» 
different railroad tracks. The evidence discloses the fact that there are many tralas 
operated dally over these respective railway tracks, and that switch engines were in 
frequent and almost constant use thereon. That cars standing upon the different rail- 
way tracks obstruct, more or less, the view of approaching engines and trains antf 
cars upon the tracks of other railways thereby endangering the lives of passengers and 
safety of property. 

It was shown by the testimony of Mr. Lewis, city engineer, that about 5000 people 
reside from the Missouri River to the proposed improvement, that is, the proposed Ti** 
dnct, and from Court street east, and that he estimates the number of teams that paM 
over these tracks daily between six in the morning and seven in the evening to be eight 
hundred to one thousand, and about six hundred to eight hundred foot passengers 
or pedestrians. That there are 15 tracks occupied by the four- different railways. 
That the distance across this system of railway tracks is about 2800 feet: These 
facts were not disputed so far as it is disclosed in the record in this case, and were 
fully sustained by several other witnesses. 

The railwiay companies offered evidence of several parties to the effect that no- 
serious accident has occurred for a number of years by reason of the public travel 
to and fro across where it is proposed to construct the viaduct, and upon the several 
streets running parallel thereto crossing said railway tracks. They also offered tes- 
timony to show that a viaduct, as it is proposed to construct this one, would not 
divert from other streets running parallel thereto, but little of the traffic across the 
railway tracks, and that the large expense which would be incurred and occasicmed 
by the construction of this viaduct is greatly in excess of what would be ordinarily 
required where there is no more danger and hazard than exists at the present time 
in the operation of the respective railways over the street in question. 

It may be said in the outset of this opinion in relation to the foregoing 
facts that this Board may not be in entire harmony upon the question of the 
public necessity at this time for the construction of this proposed viaduct, but a 
majority of the Board are of the opinion that the facts disclosed by the testi- 
mony in this case and from an investigation and examination of the premises 
and an observation of the conditions existing at Sioux City, that the city has 
established by a fair preponderance of the testimony as well as the facts 
and conditions submitted, that there may be public necessity for the construc- 
tion of this viaduct if the conditions hereinafter stated are complied with. 



236 TWENTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 

It was urged with much force upon the part of the railmiy companlea that 
the plains and specifications require a much larger, stronger and more elaborate 
viaduct than are necessary or present conditions require, and these elaborate 
plans carry with them a large additional expense in the construction of the via- 
duct as required by the plans and specifications, because it is proposed to carry 
over and upon this viaduct a street car system .Hence it is argued by the rail- 
road companies that they ought not to be required or compelled to provide 
means for another common carrier of passengers to transport its traffic over the 
rails of a different railroad company at the expense of the latter. It is urged 
that this is an injustice to the railroad companies. That the street car system 
is a common carrier of passengers for hire, and that it ought to provide its own 
means, and pay the expenses of building and constructing its lines so that 
passengers and traffic may be safely and properly carried thereon and that the 
railroad companies ought not to be compelled to pay the expenses incurred 
thereby. We confess that we are in a good deal of uncertainty with reference 
to this branch of the case. If the street car system is eliminated from the plans 
and specifications of this viaduct, then it must be conceded that the plans and 
specifications are larger and greater and more expensive than would ordi- 
narily be required; but as we view the law which governs our action in this mat- 
ter, we are not required to express an opinion upon the merits or Justice of this 
objection made by the railroad company at this time. 

We believe that for the safety and convenience of the passengers and 
people patronizing the street car system, that it ought not to be carried across 
these different railroad tracks upon the same surface grade as that of the 
railroad tracks; that it is too hazardous and dangerous. That in this case it 
ought to be carried upon this viaduct, if a viaduct is constructed. 

We further find that the question of notice or want of notice to the railway 
which has been so earnestly presented to the Board, is a matter upon which 
we cannot at this time pass. We see much force in the position taken by coun- 
sel that before they should be required by this ordinance in question to pay 
out the sum of two or three hundred thousand dollars, they ought to have 
an opportunity to present such objeclons as may seem advisable and proper, so 
that the City Council may act advisedly in the matter; but this objection 
is made upon constitutional grounds. This Board is only an administrative body 
clothed, it may be said with some Judicial powers, and may be required to 
pass Judicially upon some questions, but yet that is a question that is clearly 
not within the province of the Board, therefore it ought not to pass upon 
or consider the same. 

It will be observed in this case, as in many other cases of this kind, which 
have been and are constantly being presented to the Board of Railroad Commis- 
sioners, that the plans and specifications and the ordinance accompanying 
the order for the construction of the proposed viaduct, in no wise and in no 
manner attempts to prohibit or obstruct or eliminate the surface travel upon 
and along the streets adjacent and parallel to that upon which the proposed 
viaduct is to be constructed, or even the surface of the street under the via- 
duct. We cannot concur in this view of the city council, and we are unanimou* 
upon this branch of the case. We believe that if the railroad companies aie 
required to expend this large sum of money in the construction of a viaduct, 
that at least the street under the viaduct as well as the adjacent street running 
parallel on each side of the proposed viaduct, should be closed against surface 



BOARD OF RAILROAD COMIilSSIONBRS. 237 

travel thereon across the railway tracks, and that the city council should by 
proper and reasonable means provide some method by which the surface travel 
upon Iowa Street and Howard Street, as well as Wall Street should be pro- 
hibited and obstructed, where they are crossed by the net-work of tracks, and 
that the large travel upon these streets be diverted to and over the viaduct, 
and this public travel should include all manner of vehicles, teams, 
and pedestrains. We believe this is in the Interest of the public as 
well as that of the railway companies. That it should not be left to the option 
of a passenger or those who may be in charge of a loaded team or other vehicle 
to say whether or not they will use the surface street or the street with the 
viaduct. They should be obliged to use the viaduct. 

Another question which we believe should be adjusted and settled at this 
time, is that of the change of the street railway from Iowa Street to that 
of Wall Street If this viaduct Is to be constructed upon the proposed plans, and 
a large sum of money is to be expended in its final construction so that it may 
admit of the street car system passing over it, then the city council should make 
it certain and clear that it is its intention to require said street car system to 
use said viaduct, and as the law stands at the present time, that matter 
is not entirely within the province of the city council, and we believe that the 
city should proceed to ascertain now what authority it may have in the matter. 

We understand that if a franchise is granted to extend this street car line 
over the viaduct, that matter must be properly submitted to the voters of Sioux 
City. This has not been done. 

To order this viaduct at this time under those plans and specifications, and 
to allow, this street car system to still continue its operation over the surface 
grade of the different railways, in the judgment of this commission would be 
improper and unjust, and largely defeat the purpose and object of the proposed 
viaduct. 

The action of the city council in passing an ordinance granting to the Great 
Northern Railway Company the right to build and construct an elevated rail- 
way intersecting with the proposed viaduct, is something that this Commission 
is at a loss to account for and at the hearing no reasonable explanation was 
made or rea^oQ given for such action, -!s viewed by the Commission. Ordinarily 
the object and purpose of the construction of a viaduct is to separate the travel 
of vehicles and pedestrains from that of the railways, either by carrying fhe 
public travel over or under tte railway tracks, and that seems to have been the 
object and purpose of the city conncil when they adopted and passed the ordi- 
nance for the proposed viaduct. 

If it was clear to the Commission that the Great Northern Railway Com- 
pany would take advantage of this ordinance granting it the right to builo 
elevated railway it may be said that the Commission would hesitate to hold 
that there was a public necessity for the construction of this viaduct and it 
certainly would withhold its approval of the plans thereof. But under the 
circumstances it is not essential at this time to go further in this case than 
to suggest that if a viaduct is constructed in the future over the proposed 
street and railway tracks in question, that this proposed elevation of the Great 
Northern Railway at the point mentioned in the ordinance should be eliminated. 
To divert the travel over the proposed viaduct, if we are to rely upon the 



238 TWENTY- EIGHTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 

testimony showing the extent of such travel, certainly it would greatly increase 
the danger and hazard upon this viaduct, if the Great Northern Railway should 
be permitted to construct across and Intersecting with this viaduct a double 
track railway. It seems to this Commission as though the real purpose and 
object of a viaduct at this point would thereby be defeated. 

There are other questions which are involved somewhat in this hearing, 
but it is not deemed advisable at this time to go into this matter further. 

From the present showing, taking into consideration the question of the 
street car system as well as the failure to make any provision to eliminate 
public travel upon those streets, that is, Iowa, Wall and Howard streets, the 
Commission could not even say there was a public necessity, if present condi- 
tions were allowed to continue and exist. That a majority of the Board are 
of the opinion that if conditions are changed so that they may be in harmony 
with this opinion, then it would hold that public necessity demanded a viaduct; 
but when that demand is complied with, it must be clear that the public will 
be obliged and required, over part of this territory at least, to use this viaduct. 
The Board is unanimous in its disapproval of the plans and specifications, and 
for the reasons stated herein, it withholds its approval therefrom, and declines 
to find that a public necessity exists at the present time for the construction 
of this proposed viaduct.

No. 2912—1905. 

In the matter of the adoption of Iowa classification No. 13. 

On Dec. 29, 1904, the Board directed that a new Iowa Classification 
be prepared and published, such classification to be the same as the one now 
in force known as No. 12 with the exception that all amendments which had 
been made to such Iowa Classification No. 12 be embodied in and made a part 
of the new classification which should be known as Iowa Classification 
No. 13. The work was immediately begun and as soon as ready notice ot 
the taking effect thereof was issued, and the date for Its taking effect made 
March 1, 1905. 

Inasmuch as Iowa Classification No. 13 is the same as Iowa Classification 
No. 12, which was published in full in the report of this Board for 1901, with 
amendments thereto, all of w^hich have from time to time been published by 
the Board in its reports, it has not been thought advisable to print Iowa Class- 
ification No. 13, and making it a part of this report. 

The Commissioners have a supply of the current classification on hand, 
and any one desiring a copy thereof may obtain it upon application to the 
Board.

N. D. LooMis, Hedrick, 

VB. \. Farm crossing-undergrade. 

Iowa Central Railway Company. 



:. i ^ 



Complaint filed November 14, 1899. 

In this case Hon. James Wilson wrote the Board stating that a neighbor 
of his, Mr. N. D. Loom is, owning a farm through which ran a line of the 
Iowa Central railway had until recently been provided with an open farm 
crossing under a bridge^ but that the railway had now put in sewer pipe and 
filled up the crossing, notwithstanding his protest. 

The commissioners took this matter up with the railway company and 
on December 18, Mr. J. N. Tittemore wrote the Board saying: 

'*I have had this matter carefully investigated and find that we have at no time 
been under contract with Mr. Loomis to maintain a bridge for the purpose of allovp- 
Ing him an under crossing. This bridge t>ecame so old that It waj9 necessary either 
to rebuild or fill it. To rebuild it safely for a cattle pass would require masonry 
abutments, the height of bank being such as to prohibit' ordinary timber buUE headB. 
The drainage area was so small as to render a 36 inch pipe sufficient to carry the 
water, and we decided to dispose of it in this way. Mr. Loomis having no contract 
with the company for the maintenance of an under crossing and being already pro- 
vided with a grade crossing 329 feet east of the bridge, we saw* no occasion for 
maintaining an opening for the simple purpose of a cattle pass. Aside from .this, I 
also understand that the old bridge spanned a slough, which, for a considerable part of 
the year, was so muddy that It was impassable for cattle or horses. 

**Wlth this explanation, 1 believe you will agree with me that the position taken 
by Mr. Loomis Is hardly a fair one under the existing circumstances. In fact, 1 
understand from our Road Department that although this bridge has been in, as stated 
by Mr. Loomis, he has not used it for a year and a half, as a crossing. 

A copy of the foregoing was sent to Mr. Wilson on December 26. Nothing 
was heard from him. However, on May 9, 1900, he was again written and 
in reply stated that no adjustment had been made of the complaint. 

The Commissioners visited the crossing in controversy on July 25, 1900, 
and looked the situation over thoroughly at that time. The case ran along 
for some time, pending proposed adjustment by the railway company direct 
with the complainant. The Commissioners at a later date understood adjust- 
ment had been made of the complaint, and as it has been some time since any 
further communication has been received by the Board, the case is closed.

The case was taken up with the railway company, but at that time Mr. 
Stickney, Gen Mgr. stated that there was not enough business on this new line 
to warrant putting in an Intermediate station. The commissioners did not

This was an Inquiry by H. B. Glover Co. as to the proposed advance in excess 
baggage rates. The B6ard investigated the matter and found that an advance 
had been agreed upon to take effect March 1, but that it had since been post- 
poned until April 1st. The Commissioners also learned that it was probable 
before that time was reached the proposition would be modified or withdrawn. 
The Commissioners informed the H. B. Glover Co. of the result of their investi- 
gations, and on Feb. 27 that company replied sending a protest against the 
proposed advance, and asked the Board to keep it on file for a possible future 
reference.

This complaint was called to the attention of the Board originally by a 
letter from Mr. J. W. Young of Hillsboro. At a later date a petition was 
received from many towns along the Ft. Madison Branch of the C. B. & Q. 
Ry. Co. complaining of insufficient train service. The Board made personal 
investigation of the conditions along this branch line and had a hearing in 
their office in Des Moines. The company insisted that the revenues derived 
from this branch line were insufficient to support an exclusive passenger train. 
However, after many conferences the company agreed to restore passenger train 
service after a certain date until such time as it might put on motor car 
equipment. The case was closed.

Board showing the business done from July 1902 to July 1903 both passenger

further action, closing the case until such time as it might be again called up.

Complainant In this case stated that the company in building a bridge had

railway company and the Commissioners understood that the matter had been

The complainant stated in this case that the telegraph operator had been 
taken from Petersville, and the service should be restored. The Commissioners 
endeavored to have the matter adjusted, but the company insisted that a 
town of 15 or 20 people did not demand telegraph services, when the company 
maintained a telegraph station at Delmar which was connected with Petersville 
by telephone. The Commissioners did not believe that the showing made 
justified any interference upon their part.

Petition filed Dec. 21, 1903. 

There came to the Board a petition numerously signed asking that the 
Commissioners compel the railway company to reopen the station of Oxford 
Mills. The petition was sent to the railway company and on Dec. 31, 1903, Mr. 
H. R. Williams, Gen. Manager, wrote the Board stating that the station had 
been closed because the business done at that point was not sufficient to warrant 
the company in maintaining it any longer. Mr. Williams stated that the total 
amount received for the month of November for freight received and forwarded 
was $64.00, ticket sale |7.67. 

The petitioners were furnished a copy of Mr. Williams statement and on 
Jan. 14, the Board received the following petition: 

Oxford Mills, Iowa, Jan. 6, 1904. 
To the Railroad Commlsloners of the State of Iowa : 
Gentlemen : — 

We, the undersigned, residents of Oxford Mills in Jones County, Iowa and 
vicinity ask that you require the Chicago, Mil^niukee & St. Paul Railway Company 



BOARD OF RAII^ROAD COMMISSIONERS. 247 

to maintain and keep open for O* «n «ff tte pdUIe at said Tillage of Oxford Mills 
a railroad passenger and freight depot* and we present the following facts bearing 
thereon. 

Previous to the time that the Davenport St St. Paul Railroad was built a large 
number of citizens of Oxford Mills subscribed for the building of said road on con- 
dition that the company build and pennanently locate at said Oxford Mills a depot 
and 49 of the citizens of Oxford Mills subscribed for stock In said Davenport & St. 
Paul Railroad Company amoimtinir to 98000.00^ the express condition of said sub- 
scription and payment for stock befng that a depot should be permanently maintained 
at or convenient to said Oxford Mills. That the name of said Davenport & St. Paul 
Railroad was subsequently changed to DaTenport St Northwestern Railroad, and after- 
wards said Davenport & Northwestern Railroad Company sold and conveyed all its 
right of way, franchise, rolling stock* tnolm, etc* etc, to the Chicago, Milwaukee & 
St. Paul Railroad Company, which latter cosspany has ever since maintained said 
road, said road being constrncted iresi DaTenport, Iowa, to St. Paul, Minn. That la 
1872 the said Davenport & St. Paol Railroad was constructed from Davenport to Oxford 
Mills and the passenger and freight depot there located, which depot has ever since 
been maintained by said Davenport* St Northwestern Railroad Company and said 
Davenport & N. W. R. R. Co. and said Chicago, Milwaukee & St Paul R. R. Co. until 
a short time ago when said C. M. Jb 8t. P. R. R. Co. closed said depot and have 
declared its intention to not further maintain a depot at said place. That said 
depot wns constructed and maintained close to said Tillage of Oxford Mills at a 
convenient place and was satisfactory to all the cltlsens of said Oxford Mills and 
vicinity. That herewith submitted Is a copy of the subscription for stock to which 
is signed 49 names for stock, aggregating, as stated, $8000..00, all of which was taken 
and paid for on the consideration that said depot should be established and maintained* 
as stated. That the subscription list cannot be now found but it is substantially 
the same as the contract and subscription for stock. 

Your petitioners further represent that the center of the village of Oxford Mills 
is situated a little more than a mile from the depot at Oxford Junction, at which 
place the company maintains a depot and ever has maintained one. That the Wap- 
sipinlcon River fl^ws between said towns and In high water a considerable portion 
of the distance between Oxford Mills and Oxford Junction Is flooded so that the 
road cannot be traveled : that the station at Oxford Mills is necessary for the con- 
venience and accommodation of a very large number of farmers who take the train 
at said place and deliver hogs and stock at said place, as well as receive corn from 
the railroad company which they parchase; that said depot is a great convenience 
and necessity for the accomodation of the people of Oxford Mills and vicinity and 
has ever been so considered by the railroad company. That about four weeks ago 
the railway company closed satd depot at Oxford Mills, both passenger and freight, 
and since then has not taken on fkelgfat at said depot nor has it delivered freight 
at that place, but has stopped Its trains at said depot to allow passengers to alight 
and take the train there, but sells no tickets nor permits passengers to enter its 
depot. That the citizens of Oxford Mills and vicinity have no other convenient rail- 
road accommodation and the nearest point at wlilch they can take the train is about 
one mile from the Oxford Mills depot, the nearest station being Oxford Junction, 
and the station at Oxford Junction Is the nearest point at which freight can be 
shipped or received. That the closing of said depot can be accounted for only on 
the theory that the said C. M. St St. P. R. R. Co. has no competition at said place 
and hns tbe power of compelling people to go to Oxford Junction without materially 
lessening its receipts and that it can thereby save a small amount of expense. That 
Oxford Mills has a population of about 200, has a post office, stores, church, public 
graded school, flour mill, large electric light plant, etc. 

Tour petitioners therefore pray that you make an order requiring the C. M, & St. P. 
Ry. Co. to reopen and maintain said depot at said Oxford Mills and that it be required 
to stop its pasenger and freight trains at said depot as It did previous to closing the

and 46 others." 
The Commissioners in acknowledgtns reeeipt of this petition said to Herrick 
& Bander, Attorneys, at Monticello, who had sent in the petition: 

"In this connection it may be well to call ye«r attmtloii to the so-called Leslie case 
wherein the Commissioners ordered the rallwaj ceiapany to maintain the station of 
Leslie on the D. & K. C. Ry. The companj rwlatgd aad yoa will find the opinion of the 
state supreme court, 87 Iowa, page 644. 

'^You will understand, of course, that this Boaxd cannot enforce the terms of 
contracts." 

A copy of the additional petition was sent to the railroad company and 

elicited the following reply: 

"Replying to your favor of Jan. 14tb endoaliiK copj of petition from the citizens 
of Oxford Mills, I beg to advise that we have dlacontlnued maintaining an agent at 
that point on account of the extremely light bisriiiCBB there is to be handled. The total 
amount of earnings on freight received, freigbt forwarded and ticket sales, for last year, 
amounted to less that $150.00 per month. The dfatance from Oxford Junction, where we 
have ample and first class facilities Is only nine-tentbs of a mile. We continue to stop 
our trains at Oxford Mills for pasengers and handle freight* on a j^repaid basis, giving 
freight and passenger facilities the same as before, except that we have no agent. 

The stock subscription of $8000.00 mentioned in the petition addressed to yonr 
honorable body on January 6th, does not seem to have been based upon any clear or 
definite condition that a depot should be located and permanently maintained at Oxford 
Mills, and certainly there is nothing In the snbscrlptlon that requires the employment 
of an agent nt that point. In adition to this tbe sobanriptlon was made to the Davenport 
& St. I'aul Railway Company, which was snbseqnently foreclosed and I am advised that 
it is entirely clear that the Chicago, Milwaukee Jb 8t. Paul Railway Company never 
assumed or became liable for any alleged agreement contained In the subscription paper.** 

A copy of the above was sent to the attorneys for the petitioners, who 
stated on January 21, 1904, "that we are confident that we can show by 
affidavits by credible parties that one firm alone receives freight amounting to 
$40.00 per month and that the freight boalness done at Oxford Mills would 
average from $1600.00 to $2000.00 annually. We shall proceed at once to pro- 
cure evidence on this point and suhmit the same to you for further con- 
sideration." 

Nothing further was ever heard from the petitionera.

The complainant stated that the grade of the railway company obstructed 
natural drainage, whereby his land was damaged, and he dei^red the Commls- 



BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS 249 

sion to Investigate and grant him such relief as he was entitled to. The 
Board made this case the subject of voluminous correspondence, the railway 
company contending that its grade did not interfere with th6 natural drainage. 
Both parties furnished profiles and statements of civil engineers to support 
their contention. The Commissioners, however, finally induced the parties to 
adjust their differences between themeslves, and the case was closed.

<3. E. Shifter, Nodaway, 

vs 
Chicago, Burlington & Quixcy \ ^'^''^ crossing. 
Railw^ay Company. 

Complaint filed Jan. 27, 1904. 

The complainant in this case stated that he owned land on both sides 61 
the railroad, that he had no crossing, and that he desired to have an under- 
grade crossing. He was advised by the Board that the statute granted the 
right to the land owner to have an adequate crossing constructed for his use 
when a railroad intersected his land and that the state supreme court had held 
that this meant that the crossing should be grade crossing, unless there was no 
practicable place on the farm to construct such crossing. 

The complaint was, however, taken up with the railway company and on 
Feb. 8, 1904, the Board received letter from the company concerning this case 
as follows: 

7In reply to your letter of the 4th instant about claim of Mr. C. B. Shlffer, of 
Nodaway. Mr. SblfPer owns lands on both sides of our railroad. 1 presume he is 
entitled to an ordina>y farm crossing. Such a crossing can be built at this place, 
although It would cost us $600 or $700 to do so. We have repeatedly offered to 
construct such a crossing, but he has declined to accept it, insisting that we must 
either buy a part of his land at what seems to us a very extravagant price, or build him 
an under crossing, neither of which alternatives we have felt Justified in adopting. We 
have made repeated and numerous efforts to adjust the matter with him without 
success, and I do not believe it would be of any avail for us to take it up with him 
any further. We are ready now, as we have been In the past to put him in a good 
farm crossing w^ith easy grades^ We cannot buy his land, and cannot put him in an 
nndercrossing." 

The commissioners did not think that under the circumstances, they could 
carry this case any further, inasmuch as the company stated it was ready 
to build crossing as provided for by law.

calling its attention to the need for a station at Waverly properly lighted and 
heated and provided with such modern improvements as necessary for the con-

Train aervioe* 



The complaint in this case was as follows: 

"The merchants, shippers and residents of the town of Titonkn, Iowa, have repeatedly 
made complaints to the town council regarding the poor service given by the Chicago,, 
Rock Island & Paolflc R. R. Co. on its only train in and out of Titonka, (Kossuth Co). 

"On motion, at a meeting of the town council the following list of complaints was 
directed to be forwarded to your honorable body for consideration with the request that 
you take such action as will furnish our people some measure of relief. 

"(1) The regular time table announces the leaving time of the train at 3 a. m. 
but on four or five days of the week the train does not leave until 7 a. m. 

"(C) The arriving time of the train on its return trip is 5 p. m., but whenever 
convenient to the R. R. Co. the train Is held at Garner, or used as a special or gravel 
train further on down the line and frequently arrives too late for merchants to 
receive their mall the same day.- 

"(3) With the only train arriving at 5 p. m. when on time, the R. R. Co. refuses 
to check out any freight until the following day. 

"(4) On one occasion two cars of stock, to be transferred at Garner for Sioux 
City, were refused because the same were not to be shipped through to Chicago on their 
line. 

"(5) The company refuses to accept stock shipments excepting on two days in the 
week, thus frequently causing the shipper quite a loss on account of holding and feeding 
his stock two or three days. 

"(6) The only train makes no connection at Garner (the eastern end of the run) 
with any of the trains on the Milwaukee system. 

"(7) The mail service is such that the mall trasferred at Garner is delayed from 
12 to 24 hours. 

We would respectfully suggest that, by the R. R. Co. taking this one train and making 

the run to and from Garner twice a day, which we believe could be done without causing 
any very heavy additional expense, Titonka and the other towns along the line would 
be afforded ample facilities to make connections with all the trains at Garner beside* 
improving the mail service and freight and express services.

252 TWENTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 

The complaint was sent to the railway company and answer of the company 
follows : 

BEFORE THE BOARD OP RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS OP THE STATE OP IOWA. 

In the matter of the complaint of town authorities at Titonka.. Reply. 

Comes now the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific Railroad Company and In response 
to the camplaint sigfled by the Mayor and Town Clerk of the town of Titonka, respect- 
fully state : 

That in many respects the complaint Is not warranted by the facts. It is true that 
our train Is due to arrive at that station at 5 p. m.,but the facts are that during the 
first twenty-three days of June the train was an average of only thirty-two minutes late ; 
that on the second day of June it was late, reaching Titonka at 9 :30 p. m., the delay 
being occasioned by the fact that our trains were held at Clear Lake to accommodate 
the picnic of the Modern Woodmen and to accommodate passengers from Titonka who 
were attending such picnic. It does not run on Sunday for the reason that there seems 
to be no demand therefor. 

To accommodate stock shippers (most of the stock being destined to Chicago), we 

run two stock trains out of Titonka, on Sundays and Wednesdays. If there is no stock 

for Chicago no train is ordinarily run. The business would not justify the running of 

trains to accommodate the shipjnent of stock to Sioux City. We accommodate other 

freight on this stock train If the Chicago stock does not make full tonnage. 

The train has not been used for gravel service this season and has not been used 

for special service except on Sunday and on June 2nd when it accommodated the 

Woodmon picnic at Clear Lake. 

The business upon this branch would not justify the operation of another train. 
The operation of another would involve the addition of fifty-two additional miles (train 

miles) per day. Increasing the wages of employes over $40.00 with additional cost for 

fuel, supplies, etc., of $1(»0.00 per month. This would make the cost of the operation of 

an additional train $200 each month, and as stated before, the business upon this branch 

would not justify the expense. 

It Is true that our train is scheduled to leave at 3 a. m. and It does leave at that 
tour on two days In the week when Itis run to accommodate the Chicago stock. It is 
necessary to leave at that hour to make connection with the special stock train that 
runs over the Forest City line, and this arrangement seems to be satisfactory. The 
other days In the week it leaves at 7 o'clock and this Is to the satisfaction of the patrons 
of the road generally. It Is known by all the patrons of the road that the train does 
not leave at that time. We cannot run special stock trains except as Indicated as the 
business will not justify it. 

I have attempted to answer all of the features of the conlplaint referred to and beg 
to siip:goRt that if anything further is desired I shall be glad to take the matter up and 
obtr.In r."y Irf imntlon that may he desired In the Investigation of the complaint.

ants. The matter was taken up by the railway company who explained the 
annulling of the trains was due to the fact that no tonnage had been reported 
for such trains. It seemed that some misunderstandnig between the shipper 
and the agent had resulted in the report of no tonnage being made. Nv> 
further complaints have come to the Board and it is presumed that the shipperti^

This was an application for site for coal house presented to the Board by 
Mr. F. A. Arnold. The railroad company in answering the application said* 
that they already had two coal-houses on their grounds at Klemme which 
is a town of bfit 250 inhabitants and they did not think that another coal 
house was needed, besides it was quite likely the company would soon be com- 
pelled to use all of their station grounds at Klemme for other and proper 
railroad facilities. 

Later the Board was advised that Mr. Elder had sold his coal business 
and no longer desired a site.

Complaint filed July 8, 1904. 

The complainant in this case stated that the fence through his farm was 
in poor condition, that the gates were hard to handle and he should be pro- 
vided with an open crossing, with wing fence and cattle guards, that he must 
cross the railroads to reach the highway. 

The complaint was taken up with the railway company and on Sept. 24^ 
it filed the following answer thereto: 

••The Chicago & North Western Railway Company, replying to complaint of M. F. 
Helmer dated July 4th, 1904, respectfully states that, so far as the complaint concerning 
the fence is concerned, this fence has been from time to time repaired ; very considerable 
repairs being made In 1901 and again In 1903, and since the date of July 4th, 1904^ 
the fence complained of has been fully repaired. 

••As to the open private crossing requested by Mr. Helmer, the Chicago & North I 

Western Railway Company denies that Mr. Helmer Is entitled at this place to a crossing : 

of the character requested. A private crossing has been maintained for many years by 
the company, connecting the land owned by Mr. Helmer, and the point where he desires 
the new crossing Is only about 210 feet east of his present crossing, by which he has , 



I 



254 TWENTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 

access to his land on both sides of the railroad and to the adjacent highway. It la 
respectfully represented that an open crossing, such as requested, would require on the 
north side of the right of way a cut of at least three feet or more, and would connect 
tvt'o enclosures in which stock of various kinds could run at large, and a crossing of this 
-character on the main line of the company's road, over which the entire traffic of 
the sj'stem from the Missouri to the Mississippi river, Is carried would render the 
operation of said road dangerous and would be such a menace and danger to the safety 
•of freight and passenger traffic, that a crossing of the character asked for by the 
petitioner should not be located on said land. « 

"The Chicago & North Western Railway Company, therefore, respectfully submits 
that petitioner has no Just cause of complaint either as to existing condition of fences 
or the crossing facilities which he Is afforded.'* 

A copy of this answer was sent to the complainant and in reply to the 
■answer of the company Mr. Helmer said: 

"In reply to Attorney Davis of C. & N. W. R. R. regarding fence and open croBsinc. 
About one hundred rods of the fence referred to has received no repairs of consequence 
for ten years. The posts are 6 feet apart and five rotten wires hanging loosely to them. 
Most of the remaining fence has been constructed to proper height by spiking 2x4 pine 
to top of posts and adding one new wire at the same. 

As to proposed open crossing, the difficulties in construction, danger and menace to 
traffic, etc. 'The cut of at least three feet or more' has reference to a bank of dirt 
thrown out of a ditch which is ten or twelve feet from track two and one-hal'f feet above 
the level of track. The general level beyond is less than two feet. An Intervening ditch 
will hold all the extra dirt and make an easy grade. One man could do that Job in about 
•six hours. 'The two enclosures where live stock of various kinds rQn at large* will 
not exist as I will construct a lane both north and south of railway if given time 
before winter, if not time I can shift the live stock to other quarters. 'The danger 
and menace will be lessened ten times. The danger to myself, family and live stock vrill 
be reduced still more. For Instance, my son is now hauling cord wood, he crosses the 
railway six times a day, every time he must open and close two gates, one of which 
is a bent tube of iron with twelve barb wires hanglgn loosely to it and must he 
held open or fastened! open before a team can be driven through it. The other gate Is 
about six feet high, contains about six eight inch boards, on a windy day it is a tussle 
for one man to handle it say nothing about driving the team. Thirty acres of com 
will soon have to be transported across the same place one way. The view is now 
entirely obstructed to the westward where is a heavy grade. All trains from that 
direction pass here at greatly increased speed. School children and others passing 
through here do not understand the importance of properly closing these gates. About 
four weeks ago one was open the section men found both gates open. Two weeks ago 
one was open and one cow was on the track. 

Please refer to the drainage and notice the 20 acre pasture south of R. R. how it is 
covered with creek. Understand that will have to be cut into two lots If an opeo 
crossing. Note the angle of the present road, also the proposed and you may under- 
stand why I wish to move to the eastward. 

I have tried for years for Improvement at this place and hope now through the goo<l 
office that you hold, though an Individual against a corporation, that the mandates at 
the supreme court of Iowa be honored." 

The Board again laid this complaint before the railway company, and 
Mr. James C. Davis Atty. said that the railway company would deal direct witU 
Mr. Helmer and see if adjustment could not be made. On Doc. 22, 1904, Mr. 
Davis wrote the Board stating that the road master of the company had had 
a personal interview with Mr. Helmer, and as a result fences had been repaired, 
new gates of approved pattern had been put in, and the company had done 
everything except to furnish the open crossing. That this could not be pro- 
vided on account of the menace to the traffic on the line. On July 13, 1906, 
a member of the Board directed the following letter to be sent to Mr. Helmer. 



BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 255 

**We are advised by Mr. Davis, their attorney, that the C. & N. W. Road 
Master In charge of that- division has reported to him that he has repaired 
your fences, put in new gates and made such other improvements as were 
satisfactory to you. We take it, therefore, that your case has been satisfactorily 
adjusted, and will close the same unless we hear from you to the contrary."

in consequence it was impossible to use "Street No. 1" across the right of way 
of the company. The town desired that the Board tal^e such steps as would

compel the railroad company to furnish a railroad crossing for the street 
named. In replying to this complaint Mr. J. T. Harahan, Second Vice-Presi- 
dent, said: 

"In relation to petition of citiens of Ackley, that Mitchell St. be opened acr< 
the right of way of the I. C. R. R. Co., beg to adyise that I haye carefully h 
into same, and strongly object to granting the request of the Ackley people, as 
town is now well supplied with crossings, beginning at the west. Worth, Franklyn 
Cerro Oordo streets cross the tracks, and an overhead crossing at Hardin street, la 
addition an oyerhead crossing is under construction on the county line east of tdnni. 
These facilities would seem to serye fully the necessities of a town like Ackley, and | 
do not, therefore, as stated aboye, think Mitchell street should be opened, espeetelly 
in ylew of the fact that such crossing would be extremely dangerous."

The matter was taken up immediately with the rail^ray company, and in its answer 
the company objected to the construction of the ditch as planned by the engineer In 
oliarge of the drainage district as foilows : 

i«« • • Yf^ haye objected to open ditch under bridge 41 below the same is now 
I used by the farmer as a cattle pass under a contract. If an open ditch passes through 
this bridge it will be impossible for the farmer to use it as a cattle pass. Our engl- 
neer suggests that if a pipe were laid under the bridge, this might obviate the objeo- 
•tion. We also obJe<ft to this ditch which runs parallel to our track and inside of our 
right of way fence, because it will affect our track, and because when we desire to 
lay additional track it will be impossible to do so with the ditch so located. We claim 
that the authorities have no right to take our right of way for the purpose of con- 
structing ditch thereon." 

On Friday, September 23rd, after due notice had been given, the commis- 
sioners viewed the premises Involved in the dispute, reserving their decision 
pending negotiations between the parties for a settlement of the difficulty on 
the basis of suggestions made by the Board on the ground. 

The final disposition was to have been made by the Board on October 13, but

Complaint filed Sept. 2, 1904. 

The complaint in this case was as follows: 

"Application is hereby made to you asking an order from you to the Illinois Central 
Railroad Company requiring said company to put In an adequate crossing between his 
land north and south of said railroad, said land being the east half of the southeast 
garter of section 36, township 90, range 19, Franklin county, Iowa. This applicant asks 
and applies for an adequate crossing or causeway, whether it be grade or under grade, but 
thinks that he is entitled to an under grade crossing, since the railroad has put in a grade 
as high as sixteen feet where the railroad crosses his land, and asks that such crossing 
be put within four rods from east boundary of his land. 

"That this applicant bad a private grade crossing up to 1903. when the above 
mentioned railroad raised the grade on their right of way, crossing his land and took 
out his crossing and have continually kept out his crossing to the present time, 
and Tie has at this time no wny of crossing the railroad right of way and reaching the 
land north of the right of way, his house and bam and all his buildings beling located to 
the south of the rlgh^ of way on the above mentioned premises." 

The complaint was taken up at once with the railway company, and on 
October 24, 1904. In reply, W. S. Kenyon District Atty. for the 111. Cent, said 
that the complainant had had a crossing, immediately adjacent to his land, 
on a public highway, for a number of years, which was perfectly satisfactory, 
and seemed to fulfill all the purposes desired. 



BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 259 

On Nov. 22, Mr. John R. Heinz again wrote the Board on behalf of his 
client Mr. Humke asking that the crossing be provided very soon. On May 
12, 1905, Mr. W. J. Harahan, Fourth Vice President wrote the Board in ref- 
erence to this case as follows: 

"Referring to the matter of private crossing desired by lir. Henry Hmnke la 
Hardin county, Iowa, concerning which you have had some correspondence with our 
Second Vice President 

"What Mr. HumKe desires Is a private crossing as shown in blue print attached^ 
within four rods of the east boundary of his land, while as a matter of fftct a publld 
highway wIQi an undergrade crossing is located immediately adjacent to the eastern 
boundary of his property, which is also shown on attached blue print, and which 
we think should fully answer all Mr. Humke's purposes. 

"We at all times stand ready to give parties owning land on either side 
of our right of way, crossings where they are needed, but we cannot see the equity in tlM 
request of Mr. Humke. Of course, it is our desire to avoid grade crossings wherever 
it can be done, and we feel sure that your commission will see that lir. Hnmk^ii 
request is without reason and hesitate before ordering another crossing put in." 

On May 17, 1905, a member of the Board wrote Mr. Heinz the attorney 
for the complainant, and sent a copy of the letter from Mr. Harahan, and 
said: "It is as Mr. Harahan suggests, — somewhat hazardous to have too 
many grade crossings, and it is becoming more necessary, as our trunk lines 
increase the number of trains and speed, to eliminate grade crossings. Tak- 
ing this view of the matter we would not feel like adding to these dangers 
when it can be favorably prevented. However, we are always anxious to meet 
all fair requirements."

The complainant in this case stated that he had formerly been provided with 
a crossing such as his needs demanded, but that in the summer of 1903 the 
company made a cut or ditch through his land on its right of way and tore 
up his private crossing. That in consequence at the present time he has no 
crossing. The complaint was laid before the officials of the Illinois Central Rail- 
road Co., and on October 11 the Commissioners were advised by General Mgr. 
ELarahan that the company had provided a crossing at the point where it was 
desired by Mr. Wessels. On October 17, 1904, Mr. John R. Heinz wrote the 
Board stating that he did not believe the crossing provided by the railroad 
company was adequate; that he was endeavoring to settle the mater with 
the railroad company; that if he failed he would again take the matter up 
with the Board. Nothing further has been heard from him.

Complaint Aled Oct 27, 1904. 

The Board received the following communication from- the Feiner Fish Co.: 

"Gentleraeii: — 

"Isn't it possible for yov to Insist on the Express companies pro-rating our ship- 
ments, at least in this state? We frequently hare a small shipment oyer two llnsfl» 
and the express charge Is more than the goods. Would like to hear from you if anything 
can be done in regard to this matter". 

The Board thereupon called the attention of the express companies to the 

matter. Considerable correspondence . passed betewen the Board, the Feiner 

Fish Company and the express companies in reference to this case and on 

November 5th the Commissioners wrote the following letter to the Feiner Fish 

Company: 

"Bepljrlng to yours of NoTember 8rd, I think we appreciate your situation and yon 

may rely upon it that the Board will endeayor to see that you and all Iowa shippers 

are not discriminated against in any way. You say that if there are any sugegstloiis 

that we can make that will get the matter started in the right channel you would 

be glad to have them. I do not think it will be necessary for you to employ a lawyer* 

although, of course, you may act at your discretion in the matter. You will note by 

Section 2152 that companies may fix joint rates; that by Section 2153 all railway 

companies, etc., shall 'upon the demand of any person or persons interested, establlsli 

reasonable Joint through rates for the transportation of freight between points URfia 

their respectiye lines within this state' etc., etc. Then by Section 2155 you will sew 

that 'in the eyent of said railway companies falling to establish through joint rates, or 

fail to establish and charge reasonable rates for such through shipments, it shall be 

the duty of the Board of Railroad Commissioners, upon the application of any person 

interested, to establish such rates,' etc., etc. The opinion of the supreme court upon 

the case brought by the Board to compel the railway companies to abide by their 

Joint rate order was of such a character that this Board has reached the conclusion 

that before it can act in the matter of fixing Joint rates, the parties desiring the same 

shall first make application to the railway companies for such Joint rates and upon their 

refusal or failure to comply with the request then the niatter may be submitted by the 

persons desiring the rate, to the Board of Railroad Commissioners, showing in their 

application to the Board the fact that they applied to the companies for a Joint rate 

and that the same was refused or that the companies failed upon reasonable notice 

to grant such Joint rates. The Board thereupon will present the case to the companies 

Interested and if they still refuse or fall to establish rates as requested, then the BoarA 

will serye notices for a hearing and make such order as is found to be Just and equltabla.** 

In answering the foregoing the complainants said: 

**We will ask for some rates from the express company In a day or two^ and 
when we do will send you a copy of our letter, as we hardly expect the express companies 
to grant them. Under existing conditions, we are simply 'shut out' completely on all 
points in the state that are not operated on by the American, U. S. and Adams, and we 
belieye that with your assistance we can get this matter fixed so that we can do 
business on such lines ss the Chicago Great Western." 

As nothing further was heard from the complainant the Board regarded 
the case as closed.

The complaint in this case was substantially as follows: 
"That he owns 820 acres In section No. 82-28, and that the line of railway divides 
the same; that when the road was bnilt one Bir. Shaw made the agreement with Mr. 
Nelson to proyide two nnder-grade crossings and twx> grade crossings; that he has only

The company was made acquainted with the complaint, and in its answer 

disclaimed that it had failed to provide the complainant with such crossings 
as he was entitled to. The complainant insisted, however, that he was entitled

M6W M&rket, Ioiv«, Novembber 24, 1804. 
Gentlemen : — At the last meeting of the city council I was reqneited to write y^a 
In regard to a proposed street crossing over the B. B. at this place. Here are the 
condiQons: There is but one crossing oyer the road and that is on main street doee by 
the depot and on the switch also where most all of the switching is done. Now a 
good part of the residents live on the north side of the track and as all the business 
part also, the schools are on the south side you can see they all haye to cross at a 
dangerous place. There is a street running north and south past school house inta^ 
aecting with the one running east and west in north part of town but it is not com* 
plete as there is no*" crossing oyer right of way as there will be some cutting down 
to do as road runs through small cut at the place where the proposed crossing Is. 
Mow if crossing is made it will glye access to those people in the north part oC 
town and the school children to school at about half the distance they now go and 
a crossing away from where switching is done, and instead of teams waiting on 
trains it will make another way of getting to and from town. Now if we do the 
work and fix street up to the right of way cannot the road be made to make the 
crossing as it will be about one thousand feet from other crossing. 

'* Respectfully, 

"F. M. MZLLBBON, 

"Member of Council. 
In answering the foregoing the Board said: 

'From your letter and the map which you enclose it would seem that there Is 
no street established which crosses the railroad at the point where you desire the 
crossing made. Under the law this Commission cannot order a crossing constructed 
unless a street or highway was platted and duly established according to law across 
the railway company's right of way. The proper course for your town would bt 
to establish a street so that it would cross the company's right of way, of courasb 
obserying with the railway company the same forms and legal steps as though It ware 
a prtyate owner. When this done the Board would have power to take action to pro- 
vide suitable means for a crossing. 

"Howeyer, this matter will be taken up with the railway company with a view 
of haying it adjusted without the delay and expense that would otherwise be neces- 
sary as outlined above." 

Replying to this case the railway company said: 

"Inyestigatlon shows that this street was laid out after the railroad was builtt 
and has not yet been opened, and that there is no general sentiment among the peo*

pie of New Market in favor of opening It, becanae the present crossing seems to be 
am^le for present needs; there being only four families in the northern part of tJia 
town that this crossing would benefit. It is a bad place for a crossing owing to a 
heayy cut and the view being obscured on that account from approaching trains^ 
which would also make it expensiye in construction. I report lir. Tomllnson, Preid- 
dent of the bank of New Market, who was a member of the Board for a numl^ 
of years, as saying that the crossing is unnecessary.*' 

The petitioners were apprised of the above statement and asked to make 
such further statements as they might desire, but nothing further was heard 
from them.

The complaint in this case follows: 

"The Illinois Central Railroad Company have abandoned the station at Bensoo« 
•Iowa, having established a new station two miles from that place. We, the unde^ 
signed are engaged in business at Benson, Iowa as follows: 

Citizens Lumber Co., Dealers in lumber. 

S. C. Canfleld, Dealer in coal. 

Lee Canfleld, Dealer in general merchandise. 

We, each of us have suffered heavy loss and inconvenience by said abandonment 
of depot by said railroad company, we are unable to reach our respective places of 
business by railroad or receive or ship freight from that point: 

We. therefore each of us make claim against the Illinois Central Railroad Com* 
pany for Ave thousand dollars ($5000.00) or the re-establishment of depot and foi^ 
mer train service. 

We respectfully petition your honorable Board to submit our claim to railroad 
company and to use your full legal powers to secure the satisfaction of same and 
to report promptly and fully to Lee Canfleld, Waterloo, Iowa." 

In answering the foregoing complaint the railroad company under data 
of January 9th, 1905, through Mr. J. T. Harahan, Second Vice-President, said: 

"Dear sir : 

"Replying to your favor of the 8th ulto., in regard to petition of the Cltlseng 
Lumber Company, S. C. Canfleld and Lee Canfleld, of Benson, Iowa, that this com- 
pany pay each of them $5,000, or re-establish the depot and former train service at 
that point, beg to advise : 

"Our line, &i it existed at, and prior to, the time the original station was ta 
existence at Benson, contained maximum grades of 71 feet to the mile, which yon 
will readily recognize made It impossible to economically handle traffic. There are 
other grades on the same division which were also more excessive than the grata 
on our lines farther west, and in order to secure the greatest economy In operatioo 
all of these grades were considerably reduced, which resulted in the line in this Tlclnitj 
being diverted for a short distance, it being moved to a point south some 8,000 fbet from 
the original location of Benson station. 

"There was no contract whatever in relation to the maintenance of this depot 
on its former site, and the business was not sufficient to justify us in maintaining 
the station on the heavy grade line as against the lighter grade on the new line U

*'Under these circumstances we cannot consider the claims of these people, and 
they are respectfully declined.*' 

A copy <rf Mr. Harahan's letter was sent to the complainants, who stated, 
replying thereto, that they declined to withdraw their claims and requested the 
Board to bring such claims before the proper court for adjudication. 

On January 20th, 1905, the Board wrote to the complainants stating that the 
Commissioners had no authority whatever over claims for damages for vio- 
lation of contract, neither could they take such a case before the courts. They 
were also advised that the Board could carry this case no further.

Complaint filed Dec. 6th, 1904. 

The C. G. W. Ry. Co. by their tariff No. 11152, taking effect Nov. 16th, 1904, 
made the switching charge at Lehigh on soft coal one cent per 100 pounds 
with minimum weight of 50,000 pounds to which the complainants objected 
claiming that it was exhorbltant and that the former charge of |2.50 per car 
was right. 

In response to this complaint on Dec. 28th Mr. S. C. Stickney, General Mana- 
ger wrote the Board as follows: 

"In revising our switching rates we have attempted to preserve as far as possi- 
ble the rates which have been in effect for handling the cars of connecting lines 
between the interchange point and our Industry tracks. 

**For switching to and from our team tracks as distinguished from industry 
tracks, we have made a higher charge. Most roads will not switch business of con- 
aecting lines to and from their team tracks, but we have decided to perform sucli 
switching, although we do not believe we are required to do so, either by the law or 
by custom. 

*'Ab to so-called switching between any point on our own rails and any other 
nearby point, we think we are entitled to collect the maximum rates for the mlnl> 
mum distance provided In the Iowa Commissioner's Distance Tariff, which on car- 
load classes vary from 8 cents per hundred lbs. on sheep to 1.4 cents per hundred on 
•lack coal. For all this business at Fort Dodge, Lehigh and Intermediate we have made 
a rate of 1- cent per hundred lbs. when both origin and destination are inside of the 
limits of one station. Where the business is from one station to another, we have 
intended to adhere to the Iowa Railroad Commissioners' tariff. 

"Under the existing law, if we deem it to our Interest to do so, we think we 
are entitled to charge the Commissioners' rate for five miles for any service we perform. 

"In many cases the entire gross earings from switching revenue is not snflU 
dent to pay the Interest and maintenance on the side tracks where the freight Is 
loaded or unloaded. As we are under no obligation in most cases to construct the indus- 
try tracks and as we are at liberty in most cases to remove them if we regard the 
business as unprofitable, we do not believe the interests of the firms involved would 
ke best served by attempting to require us to do business at a loss.

"In tbla connection, I might alBO Bay that the average weight and capacity ot 
our can liaa increased very mnch in the last few years and we think it should ba 
taken into account in any fair consideration of what switching rates should be. 

*'If our yiews do not appeal to the Commission, I will be glad of an opportonlty 
to take np the matter at any time.*' 

A copy of Mr. Stickney's letter was sent to the complainants on January Wif 
1905, and tliey were asked to state whether they loaded upon team track ot 
another company, or whether their mines were located upon switching tracks 
of another company having track connections with the C. 6. W. To this 
inquiry no reply was ever received.

The complainant in this case appeared before the Board and made the fol-

**I own a farm of 300 acres adjoining Clarkson on the east, 100 acres is on the 
south side of the C. B. & Q. and 200 acres on the north side. The improvements are 
all on the 100 acres. For 20 years I have had an under passage way for stock 
convenient to the buildings and pasture which was perfectly satisfactory to me. f 
had no grade crossing and did not want any. Sometime ago the engineer, whoee 
name I have forgotten, asked me If 1 had any objections to tilling this opening .which 
I used as an under crossing. I told him I certainly had as it was my principal 
place of crossing and also told him that if he would leave me 10 feet in the clear 
1 would have no objection to the balance of the opening being filled up. Now, thej 
have filled the entire opening and Mr. Fabin, the superintendent, states that he dM 
aot know that I had any objections to this vrork being done. When the road was 
built Mr. Wood, the right of way agent, agreed with me that I should have a pas- 
sage way underneath the track. I have another under crossing that wlU permtt 
the passage of cattle but it is down at the slough, a point very inconvenient for me 
as it would require me to drive my cattle one-half mile each time I took them to pas- 
tqr®. I desire that the company should re-open a passage way for me at least 10 
feet where it has been maintained for me for the past 20 years.** 

The commissioners took this matter up with the railway company and after 
considerable correspondence, and personal investigation on the part of the 
Board the following agreement was reached by the parties to the controTersy:

on Feb. 11, as follows: 

"I have inquired into the matter and am of the opinion that the complaint was 
made at the inatigatlon of a man by the name of Stortz, with whom we have had 
some trouble at that point, and in reply 1 wish to say that our shipping facilities 
at that point as well as all others, are open for use by any shipper whether farmer 
or dealer, who has a car load of stock ready to ship. Before giving any serious con- 
sweration to the complaint I would suggest that you get the views of prominent

use of the shippers at that point who ship most of the stock from that town; 
however, that there were other yards available to the general public of suca 
size and convenience as would ordinarily take care of the business. It seemed 
that th*<§re had been some misunderstanding with reference to the use of the 
yards, but the Board was assured there would be no further cause for complaint 
The case was therefore closed without prejudice.

"On December lOth, 1901, the said company removed Its depot or office out of the 
corporate limits of the aforenamed town. The' distance between the old road bed 
and the new is about 8000 feet. 

*'The railroad company built a sidewalk from its new depot site to a sidewalk 
at the SB comer of block 25, town plat. 

*They also ^areled the road from its new site a distance of about 4200 l^eet 
connecting same with the main street in town. 

'The R. R. Company has been keeping the above named sidewalk in repair and 
keeping the same free from ice and snow, but now refuse to do so. 

"Kindly advise us. Can we force the company to keep the walk as has been done. 
Also on whom, would the responsibility fall in case of accident.'* 

The Board asked Mr. Mobr to state whether the walk or street referred to 
belonged to the railway company or whether it was a public highway. In re- 
sponse to this inquiry Mr. Mohr said: 

**The C. & N. W. R. R. Co. removed its tracks to a roadbed outside of the limits 
of the corporated city. Distance between old and new right of way about one half 
mile. Railway company voluntarily laid a sidewalk from new depot site along pub- 
lic highway called Division street to connect with sidewalk at comer of Block No. 
25, as Indicated by ink drawing. Railway company also graveled the public highway 
from its new depot site to SB corner to Block 25, thence west to corner of Gault 
and Corning thence north along Gault street to connect with Main St. Bntire distance 
graveled about 3800 ft. Railroad company does not own the land on which above 
walk IS laid, the same being a public highway. Any other information will be 
gladly given." 

On Feb. 14th the Board wrote Mr. Mohr advising him that Section 1522 of 
the Code bad never been adjudicated. Also stated that: 

"The railway cdfaipany or any other person may build *a sidewalk along a public 
highway and it would then probably become the property of the public, and the 
public might be bound to keep it in repair. This is only the opinion of the Board 
and must not be considered a decision with reference to the duties of the company 
in the premises." 

It was also suggested to Mr. Mobr that the matter be taken up with tl}e 
county board of supervisors.

would try to arrange a satisfactory adjustment of the charges for its use by 
Mr. Tunnell. Later the Board was advised that a charge of |2.00 per car had 
been agreed upon, and this seemed to satisfy Mr. Tunnell.

This was a complaint by live stock shippers that they could not get their

complaint was filed at a time when all the roads in Iowa were having difil-

the company had trains into the points along this branch line and the cause 
for complaint removed.

vs. } Interstate rates on grain. 

Railway Companies. 



\ 



During the month of February, 1905, the Board received a good many com- 
munications from various grain dealers in Iowa complaining that the rates on 
corn and oats from Iowa stations to the Mississippi river were greater than 
the rates on the same commodity from Omaha to Baltimore, Maryland. The 
Board investigated the complaint and found the discrepancies existed by reason 
of a "rate war** from the west to the Atlantic seaboard and from the west to 
points on the Gulf. 

It also developed that the rates quoted by the complainants from Iowa sta- 
tions to the Mississippi River were "proportionals" on through shipments. 

The Commissioners advised each complainant of the conditions as they found 
them and there is herewith quoted one of the letters of the Board which ex- 
plains such conditions: 

"Your letter of recent date received and contents carefully noted. Keplying I 
am dfrected to say : The Board would be guad to render yon any assistance within 
their Jurisdiction but they have absolutely no authority under the law* to make jiny 
part of a throuKh rate. The rate to which you refer as being ezceaslve Is 
undoubtedly the so-called "proportionar* of the through rate. This Board has 
never had anything to do with fixing this "proportional" and can have, under the 
law. nothing whatever to do with fixing it. The conrts have held that any part 
of an interstate haul is interstate business and is not subject to the Jurisdiction 
of any state authority, except in matter of police regulations. 

"The rate fixed by this Board can be made to apply only on shipments beginning 
and ending In Iowa. The Commissioners' rate on corn, oats, barley, etc., for 217 
miles is 9.46 cents per himdred pounds ; so you see the Iowa rate is much lower for the 
same distance than the rate which you quoted the Board. 

"The Board has had this matter in hand for some time and believes that it will 
not be long until all rates will be placed upon an equitable basis and Iowa shippers 
properly taken care of, so long as the "cut rates" are in effect between Omaha and the 
east. 

"The Commissioners are at all times ready and willing to aid Iow« shippers Id 
any manner they may be able."

at that place. A few years ago the said company drove piling in the shape of a pier 
in the center of the river which have since always blockaded the ice and driftwood and 
always floods all the property over the said bridge. 

' '"'Noir last summer the said company drove piling at both sides of this pier In 
the center of the river which now blocades the entire river, and what will become of 
us and our farms is hard to tell.*' 

In answering this complaint the railway company said that it had been 
necessary to place these temporary bents in order to make some repairs, that 
they would not be of serious damage to Mr. Jones' property and would be taken 
out in the spring.

sible to any street, and the Commissioners suggested to the complainants that 
the town should open a street in order to have access to any location that could 
be assigned them. Later, however, the Board was advised that the Farmers

Illinois Central Railroad Company. 



Complaint filed Feb. 11th, 1905. 

The complaint in this case follows: 

''The railroad company hajs been for a long time promising us to get us into Chicago 
on better time. We have been getting in there too late for market from ten till after 
market closes or so late we have to take from 10 to 25 cents decline in the ma<^ker 
or hold over extra feed and shrinkage. They want to haul more cars than they caA . 
haul. Our cattle looks bad being on the cars so long, from 85 to 60 hours, without feed 
or water ana this thing has got to be fixed some way. What is the law? Keep them 
on the cars more than 28 hours? The R. R. company claims when they get us to 
Hawthorne where we weigh them they are out of their hands. They bunch their trains 
all up and being on the west end we have to take the worst of it and have all winter, 
and then they split up our shipment and unload at two to five different platforms and 
we can't get the cattle together for a long time after they get to Chicago. Now* I 
want you to see what can be done about it. They haul us to Ft. Dodge and wait two 
to three hours. Sometimes they give us a bunk caboose and sometimes not. Most of the 

time we have a full train out of Marcus, all they ought to haul, yl haven't said half yet 
but win next time if this thing isn't got into shape soon. All w^ want Is to get In 
Chicago by six or seven o'clock In the morning so we can have a fair chance with the 
rest of the people." 

The Commissioners sent the complaint to the railroad company and on 
March 29th, Mr. J. T. Harahan, Second Vice-President, replied: 

Referring further to your letter of February 14th, in regard to complaint of Mr. 
M. Y. Ames of Marcus, Iowa, this matter has been gone into very thoroughly and 1 
am unable to confirm the statements made by this gentleman. 

"Onr records show that we have not held stock at Fort Dodge two or three hours. 
It Is sometimes held 45 minutes or an hour in order to consolidate it with other stock, 
as in this way you will readily appreciate better time can be made than If two trains 
were run, filling out to some extent with less Important freight. In no Instance has the 
holding of stock in this manner resulted in poor movement or late deliveries at the yards. 

"Mr. Ames has been interviewed personally by our representative, but made only 
general statements and cited no specific instances, the burden of his complaint being 
delays getting into stock yards proper, a matter which, of course, is not under our 
control. 

We appreciate that our interests in the matter are Identical with those of shippers 
and our people are doing and will continue to do everything in our pow^r to render 
them satisfactory service. There are, however, as you of course readily understand, 
occasions when, due to causes over which we have no control, emergencies will arise 
In the operation of a railroad, which makes it Impossible to handle these matters as 
would be desired by all concerned, but we are giving them preferred attention and do 
not consider our record junfavorable." 

Copy of the foregoing was sent to Mr. Ames and nothing further has been 
heard from him.

Complaint filed Feb. 13, 1905. 

The complaint in this case was as follows: 

Boone, Iowa, February 10, 1905. 

To the Board of Railroad Commissioners of Iowa: 

"Your honorable body, I wish to call your attention to the Newton & Northwestern 
R. R. I think it your duty to Investigate the manner in which that company handle 
that road, also the way they use the men. They have some enjcines that are not safe 
for men to work with. J believe it is the duty for the proper authority to inrestlgate 
for the safety of men. I worked a short time for them as engineer. 

Yours respectfully, 

W. M. TONO. 

The complaint was taken up at once with the Railway Company and Mr. 
J. L. Blake, General Manager, wrote the Board on February 20th, as follows: 

"1 beg to acknowledge receipt of your esteemed favor of the 14th addressed to 
Hamilton Browne in referenc to an imaginary condition that Mr. W. M. Tong saw fit 
to write up. To begin with I have only to say to you that Mr. Tong was an old man 
and was unable during the cold weather to do an aL!ebodied man's work and as he had 
only been with us a week or ten days we were compelled to dispense with his seirlcefl. 
This seemed to enrage the old gentleman and he made threats as to what he would 
do, and so on, etc., and I assume that this in one of the methods pursued by him 
in order to make us aome trouble. 

*'I assure you that we are in good shape, our line was cleared of snow Thursday of 
last week and all trains run on schedule time early Friday ; w^ delivered coal to every 
station on the line on Friday that w^s short of coal, and our line was as clean as 
a whistle Saturday. 

I think you will admit that a line is in fairly good shape that can truthfully state 
the above. 

What I assume Mr. Tong had reference to was that during the severe cold our engine 
8 leaked steam more or less on account more patricularly of the severe cold weather, 
but no more than is the case with all the other lines and only on Saturday last at 
Marshalltown I saw a nice new big compound engine there that you could not see the 
engine for steam after the throttle was open and Saturday was a mild day. We, of 
course will have this engine in much better shape in a few days now ; in fact she does 
not show the leaking of steam so much except in extreme cold weather, but I assure 
you that you have no cause for alarm at all. This is simply the outcome of discharging 
a man who was unable to perform all the duties assigned to him and as I have already 
said to you he is disgruntled." 

The Commissioners sent a copy of Mr. Blake*s letter to the complainant, 
but all letters sent to him were returned to the Board unopened.

The case was presented to the railroad company and on March 18th Mr. Henry

Mr. Lingo objects to the use of his property by Mr. Davis. Under the circumstances

however much, we would like to do so in order to control the business."

Complaint filed March 7. 1905. 

Complainant stated that the agent refused to sell him Homeseekers' tick- 
ets to Groton, South Dakoa, claiming that he didn't have time to prepare them 
so that he had to telegraph to Rockwell for the tickets and had to pay extra 
fare and for telegraphing, etc. He stated that he asked for the tickets an hour 
before train time and thought he should have ^2.00 damages. The Commis- 
sioners called the attention of the company to this case and Mr. L. F. Da>, 
General Manager, on April 11th, said: 

With reference to your favor of the 15th ult. regarding complaint of Mr. F. B. 
rnmpbell, Sheffield, lown. The matter has been thoroughly Investigated and I beg to 
advise that onr information Is that this gentleman called for his tickets at 11:40 a. m., 
25 minutes before the train on which he was to depart was due at the station, the 
agent at that time being engaged in making out other homeseekers' tickets for Devils 
Lake, North Dakota, and with other necessary work at the station he knew that he did 
not have sufficient time in which to prepare the tickets to Groton and so advised Mr. 
Campbell. He then telephoned to Rockwell and had the tickets prepared at that station. 
the only expense Mr, Campbell was put to In this connection wrjs his railroad fare of $.20 
per ticket, which we will gladly refund on return of the receipts to us. Mr. Campbell 
was put to no expense as. nothing vms charged him for the use of the telephone In 
ordering his tickets from Rockwell. We regret, however, that Mr. Campbell was 
put to the slightest inconvenience, but you of course are aware that homeseeker's tickets 
take some little time to prepare, and it is desirable to give the agent as long notice* in 
advance as possible, to that the tickets may be ready upon arrival." 

Mr. Campbell was advised of Mr. Day's letter and on May 16th he wrote 
the Board stating that he had called for the tickets at 10:45 A. M., that he did

not use the railroad telephone, and that they knew that the parties for Devil's 
Lake bought their- tickets the night before and went on the 3:30 A. M. train.

company was ready to reimburse Mr. Campbell for any loss he had sus- 
tained.

The complaint in this case was as follows: 

"I wish to enter complaint to you against the night baggage man of the anion 
station, Keokuk, Iowa. I buy the 2,000 mile interchangeable mileage book, good on all 
roads in the state, and come to checking my baggage from Keokuk to Dlayenport, 
presenting my mileage as my credential and paying cash excess on my baggage, h6 
refuses to check It through for me, and will only check it to West Liberty, thereby 
making me lose the close connection and lay over in the night two hours, and paying 
double excess. I do not think this is Justice and this man is yery arbitrary In the 
matter, and I would like to have you look into the matter." 

The case was taken up at once with the railway company, and Mr. Carroll 

Wright for the company said in a letter dated March 27: 

"Referring to the complaint of W. O. Rice, copy of which you forwarded me on the 
24th, I wish you would ask the complainant to advise you the circumstances under 
which he asked that his baggage be checked from Keokuk to 'Davenport. I have an 
impressiqp that Mr. Rice was intending to take passage himself only to West Liberty. 
I cannot understand how* he failed to have his baggage checked to Davenport if he 
presented a baggage coupon which was provided for in the mileage strip entitling him to 
have it so checked. If Mr. Rice will give you further information I will make 
investigation and ascertain all of the facts." 

A copy of Mr. Wright's letter was sent to the complainant who replied 
stating that the trouble arose over the arbitrary' actions of the baggage man 
at Keokuk. It then transpired that the party complained of is an agent of 
the Union Depot company and not under the control of the Rock Island, but 
that the Rock Island company had endeavored to secure a change of rules 
of the Union Depot that would permit handling of baggage as Mr. Rice 
requested. Mr. Rice was informed of the conditions and the case was closed

The complaint in this case was as follows: 

"We have a matter of basiness that we would like to call to your attention. We 
farmers of Alvord, Iowa, located on the Great Northern Sy. hare organlied and 
incorporated a company for the pnrpoee of handling our grain bnaineBB. In our early 
meetings we were assured by the road to get ready and if we wanted a site on which 
to build a house we could get it. We have now made application for a site and they wont 
grant it unless we erect a 80,000 bushel elevator. This is unreasonable as a house of 
tnch capacity is not necessary for our business and we object to building such an 
expensive house as it is showing partiality against us for the line elevator companies 
that operate in Alvord were given sites for houses of 10 to 18 thousand biishel capacity 
and two of them were built quite recently. There is not the right kind of grain bnslB— 
at this point as farmers have been losing from 4 to 7 cents per bushel and it Is very 
important that we receive grant of a site for a house 12,000 bushel, that we baUd at 
once. It is getting late in the season and we must have a site soon. The By. ofllelele 
are now turning a deaf ear to us and we kindly ask for your assistance in gettlas 
onr rights." 

The Board took the matter up, but before the case was reached the Com-

already located, and there was no occasion for action by the Board.

said: 

"We had an onprecedented rainfall lo that region in the early part of Jnntb

The complaint in this case follows: 

"I write you for your help In regard to a waterway through the Rock Island 
railroad. The railroad has a wtiterway there now but It is dn the level of the groiud» 
It was put there before the ditch was put in. In 1904 there was about 5 miles of 
ditch put in with a ditching machine, six feet wide and three feet deep and drainn 
abouH 800 acres of land. We came from the south with the ditch to the railroad 
and crossed over ind went on with. What I w^nt you to understand is that tim 
railroad outlet Is on the level of the ground and the water will not run out unlit 
the ditch runs over and backs the water on the land. I have asked the company 
to have their drain fixed but they will not do it so I do not know what to do, only ask 
your help. The land Is the north and west quarter of section fourteen *(14), eighty- 
nine (89) north range twenty (20) west fifth P. M., and the drain right beside <ff 
mile post 93, east of Iowa Falls on the Rock Island." 

The Commissioners presented the case to the railway company and Mr. 
Carroll Wright, the general attorney for the company, replied on July 14th. 

"Replying to the complaint of John Deemer of Iowa Falls, 1 have to say that 
many years ago this Company constructed an opening under its track at the point 
referred to in the complaint at such depth as would take care of all of the water 
coming to the track at that point. Our culvert is 5 feet and 8 inches below the top 
of the rail. Subsequent to that time I am advised that certain land owners joined 
together to dig a ditch without pursuing the provisions of the statute and have con- 
structed a ditch to our right-of-way which is seven feet and 8 inches below the tcp 
of our rail. In order to accommodate them it will be necessary to lower our culvert 
2 feet. I am advised that this would involve an expense of about 1200.00. I do 
not think that we should be expected to incur this expense. Certainly If the parties 
had pursued the provisions of our statute in reference to drainage, we wx>uld. In 
accordance with the provisions of the statute, be entitled to the expense of chang- 
ing the drainage under our track. I believe upon investigation you will agree with 
me that it would be Illegal to attempt to require us to pay the expense of the change. 

'^If I can furnish you any further information please command me." 

The Commissioners sent a copy of Mr. Wright*s answer to the complainant, 
and also called his atteniton to Section 1955 of the code. With this the 
case was closed.

Complaint filed July* 7, 1905. 

Complainant stated that the railway company neglected to keep in repair 
their right of way fence where it crossed a stream through his farm. The 
complaint was taken up with the railway company. The railway company in 
answering this complaint said: 

'*We cross the Four Mile Creek, to which Mr. Gibson refers, on a bridge 
about sixty-five feet in height. We have naturally high embankment on both 
Bides and our right-ofway is fenced on both sides with wings up to the 
bridge so that the cattle cannot get on the track. 

"The thing that troubles Mr. Gibson is that his cattle follow the creek 
underneath the bridge on to someone else's land. This is a natural water- 
way, and as our right-of-way is fully fenced so as to keep stock from getting 
on to the track, I think we have done our full duty. If any fence has ever 
been built acrcss this creek at this place underneath the bridge by anyone 
connected with the company it has been done without authority. 

"As a matter of fact, the water rises in this creek to such an extent at 
times thaf I do not think that anybody could successfully maintain a fence. 
This creek is forty-five feet wide from top to top of the bank, and eight feet 
deep, and at times runs full of water and overfiows the bank.*' 

Mr. Gibson was advised of the answer of the company on August 5th, and 
ithe Board, under the circumstances, closed the case.

plans which have been submitted to the city for approval and have been approred 
by the city, and believe everything Is entirely satisfactory to them. I know of no 
reason why the viaduct should not be renewed with reasonable promptness.'

application. The company did not want to condemn any land belinging to Mr. 
Holland but "the right of way or easment in the street upon which his prop- 
erty abuts." Thereupon the Commissioners wrote Mr. Stewart as follows: 

"Replying to yours of November 4th I am directed by the Board to say that it 
have never been the custom or practice of the railway companies or the Railroad 
Commissioners, or property owners, to have a certificate Issued by the Board of Rail- 
road Commissioners permitting a railway track to be laid In the street, and unless 
you are able to show some recognized authority that that is the rule the Board might 
not to be Inclined to go further In this proceeding. 

As the Board understands It, where an Incorporated city or town permits the 
construction of a railway upon and along Its streets, the statute provided what dam- 
ages, if any. the abutting property may be entitled to and the method of procedure 
therein."

CABBIEBS — INTEXDINO PASSENGERS APPHOACHES TO STATION. 

Plaintiff intended to take passage on a train which did not regularly stop at her 
Station, but which the agent was to signal for her benefit. There were some side 
tracks leading to the depot, which the street did not cross, and which, at train time, 
were blocked with a freight train. The conductor of the freight train had no 
knowledge of plaintiff's desire to take the train until she reached the track, and 
the station agent was not shown to have known of plaintiff's intentions in time to 
have advised him thereof. No train scheduled to stop at the station was due, so that 
there was no reason for keeping the approach free. As the engine was detached, 
and time was pressing, so that the freight train could not be separated, plaintiff 
had to climb over it, and In so doing fell and was injured. Held, that there was no 
negligence- on the part of the railroad. Eaklns v. Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific Rail- 
way Company, 102 N. W. Rep., 104. 

CARRIEBS ^ACTIONS OWNERSHIP IN CONSIQNEE. 

It is presumed that on the delivery of goods to a carrier the title thereto passes 
to the consignee, and such presumption is sufficient to sustain an action by the con- 
signee as owner either in tort or for a breach of contract. Bank of Irwin v. Ameri-

Where, after oward in condemnntlon proceedings, the railroad company served 
notice of appeal, and had the same docketed as authorized by Code, section 2000, no 
appeal by the land-owner was necessary In order that he might procure larger 
damages than those awarded by the sheriff's Jury, should he be found entitled there- 
to on the trial of the railroad company's appeal, as authorized by section 2011. 

A railroad company having appealed from an award in condemnation proceedings, 
the land-owner also served notice of appeal, and caused a transcript to be filed with 
the district court clerk, but failed to pay the filing fee, whereupon the railroad caused 
the landowner's appeal to be docketed, paid the filing fee, and moved the district 
court to afiirm the assessment of the sheriff's Jury, as authorized by Code, section 
3660, for the landowner's failure to prosecute his appeal. Such motion was overruled 
and the court ordered the landowner's appeal to be consolidated with that taken by 
the railroad company, when the later, without objection by the landowner, dis- 
missed its appeal. Held, that the railroad company was not thereafter entitled to a- 
review of the order refusing to dismiss the landowner's appeal. McKlnnon et ux. v..

In an action against a railroad for injuries to a brakeman from alleged defectire 
foot guards at a switch, evidence examined, and whether defendant was negligent held 
a question for the Jury. 

A railroad brakeman does not assume the risk of a defect in the blocking at a switch 
in the absence of knowledge of the defect. 

Where the question Is whether, in a particular emergency, an employe was negli- 
gent in the method pursued by him in rendering a service, the general custom or usage 
as to the method of rendering such service may be shown. 

In an action against a railroad for injury to a brakeman, where it appeared that 
he was injured by stepping between the cars inside the rail while the engine was in 
motion to uncouple, evidence was admissible to show that when he entered the employ 
of the defendant he was directed to go with a train crew and see how they performed 
their work, and to govern himself accordingly, and that on such instruction trip the 
brakemani under circumstances similar to those which confronted him at the time of 
his injury, did the same as he did on that occasion. Plerson v. Chicago & North

having to much play, knew of such condition of the car, and had not complained of 
it, will be held to have assumed the risk Incident thereto. 

A section hand's assumption of risk from defective brake shoes on a hand car Is 
suspended immediately on the foreman's promising him, when he called his attention 
to their dangerous condition, that he would repair them; and the risk is then the 
master's as long as. the servant may reasonably expect the promise to be performed.

In an action against a railroad for the death of a steer, caused by defendant's 
failure to properly fence its track, as required by Code, section 2055, a* charge that 
plaintiff could only recover upon proof of a want of repair known to defendant or

Where in condemnation proceedings, defendant railroad company served notice on the 
owner of the land sought to be taken and on his tenant, and the Jury assessed damages 
which the owner had suffered at a specified sum, the award was not Joint as to the 
owner and tenant, so ns to require a Joint appeal. 

Where a landowner and his tenant w^re made parties to a proceeding to condemn land 
for a railroad right of way, and damages were awarded by the sheriff's Jury to the own- 
er only, neither tlic owner nor the tenant was bound to Join the other in his appeal 
from the award, but both w>3re entitled to prosecute independent appeals. 

Where separate appeals from an award in condemnation proceedings w^ere taken by 
the owner and his tenant, it was not error for the court to refuse to consolidate them 
on the railroad company's refusal to agree' to the rendition of separate verdicts or 
findings in each case. 

Code. Sec. 2009. provides for appeals from assessments by a sheriff's Jury by service 
of a notice in writing on the adverse party and the sheriff. Section 3660 declares that 
in appeals from inferior tribunals the appellant shall cause the case to be docketed by 
noon of the second day of the term to which the appeal is returnable, and on his failure 
to do so the appellee may procure the case to be docketed and have the Judgment 
affirmed, and that the provisions with reference to appeals from Justices' courts are ap- 
plicable "so far as they may be." Section 4559, relating to Justices' appeals, provides 
that, If the appellant falls to pay the docket fee and have the case docketed by noon of 
the second d.ay of the term at which it is triable, appellee may do so. and have the 
Judgment affllrmed or set for trial In Its merits, etc. HchL that, as Jurisdiction of an appeal 
from an award of a sheriff's Jury in condemnation proceedings Is conferred by service of 
notice on the adverse party and the sheriff, where the case properly got on the docket, 
after such service the appellee was not entitled to have the appeal dismissed, or Judgment 
affirmed, for appellant's failure to file a transcript wltliin the time specified or pay the 
docket fee. 

In proceedings to condemn land for a railroad right of way, evidence as to what de- 
fendant railway company had paid to others per acre for rights of way over their land, 
not similarly situated, w^as inadmissible. 

In proceedings to condemn land for railroad right of way plaintiff was not entitled 
to recover for Inconveniences suffered by an overhead bridge over a highway, which 
Interfered with his access to a town. 

Error of the court in permitting evidence of damage including such Injury was not 
cured by an Instruction that plaintiff could not recover for any inconvenience which 
affected the public generally as wiell as the owner, and that being obliged to drive 
under an overhead crossing vras such an inconvenience. 

In condemnation proceedings an instruction that it was proper for the Jury to con- 
sider every element of annoyance and -disadvantage resulting from the construction 
of the railroad which would influence an intending purchaser in making an estimate of 
the market value of plalntifTs property was erroneous, as permitting the Jury to award 
damages on mere caprice.

A brakeman engaged with a train crew in switching to make up a train had the 
switching list from which he learned what cars were to be taken into the train and the 
position which each was to occupy. On the basis of the list the train was made up. It 
was his duty to uncouple the cars as required. The crew acted solely in responses to 
signals given by him. Held that, he was a vice principal rendering the railway com- 
pany liable for Injuries to members of the crew occasioned by his negligence. 

In an action against a railway company for injuries to a brakeman while engaged 
in switching, evidence examined, and held to warrant a finding that the negligence of 
the employe in charge of the work was the proximate cause of the injury. 

An instruction m a personal injury action that negligence means the failure to use 
"that degree of care which the law requires ; that is, ordinary care or the doing of that 
which ordinary care • ♦ • would dictate should not be done," is not open to the 
objection that matters of omission are excluded from consideration. 

In a personal Injury action the injury to plaintiff was in the loss of his left arm 
and In the pain and suffering incident thereto. At the time of the injury he was 27 
years old. Ue had been a brakeman for about a year, earning from $60 to $75' a month, 
and prior to that time he had been a farm hand. Heldj that a verdict for $12,000 
was exceHslve, and should be reduced to $7,500.

A car repairer, whose duty it was to repair cars while on the repair track In a

mismanagement of the engineers, when the injured person's employment is in any way 

couuected with the Uhe and operation of any railway on or about which he shall be 
employed. 

lu an action by a car repairer for injuries, the evidence showed that he was struck 
by the sudden starting of a railroad engine, without signal, which had been standing on 
a track which Intervened between the place where he had gone for his tools and the 
repair track, where plaintiff usually worked. It also appeared that it w-as customary

track.s. and that the rules of the defendant required engineers to give signals before 
starting ; and plaintiff testified that the engineer of the engine in question saw him go 
into the place of danger. JJtld, that a charge that if, after the engineer knew or had 
reason to believe that plaintiff was in the place of danger, he with such knowledge 
started the engine without signal or warning, then defendant would be guilty of negli-

In action against a railroad for the killing of a horse, which went through a 
gate in defendant's right of waj-, evidence held to warrant submitting to the Jury the 
question as to how* the gate became open. 

Whether the gate was sufficient In construction and fastening was also a ques- 
tion for the Jury. * 

[Ed. Note. — For cases In point, see vol, 41, Cent. Dig. Railroads, Sec. 1635.] 

Where it was shown that the gate, if opened by stock at all, was opened by the use 
of the upper board for rubbing purposes, so that the question of the space between the 
upper and th^ second board became material In determining whether the gate was im^ 
properly constructed, the ' admission of evidence that after the accident the defendant 
had fastened a wire between the two boards was reversible error. 

Code Sec. £055, provides for double damages against railroads for injury to stock 
caused by failure to fence the right of way. Section 2057 defines a legal right of way 
fence, and section 2058 provides a penalty for failure to fence as provided in the pre- 
ceding section. Section 2055 was In force .prior to the enactment of sections 2057, 
2C^8 and the courts had held that It was a complete defense to an action under sec- 
tion 2055 to show that there was a reasonably sufficient fence and that insufficient fences 
were in fact no fences at all. Held that, as It must be presumed that the Legislature 
had in mind such rules, there was no conflict betw^een the sections, but it was the legis- 
lative intent that a failure to fence as required by section 2057 should be treated as an 
entire failure to fence, and that the liability and penalty provided for in section 2055 
should then follow. Titus v. Chicago M. & St. P. Ry. Co.,103 N. W. Rep., 343.

322 TWENTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 

A contract with a railroad for the removml of earth Xrom cats required the con- 
tractor to furniah all work, tools, and equipment to do aU^ the grading required for 
filling at a certain place under the directioa and to the fiatlsfactlon of the chief engi- 
neer, who should also determine the width of the embanlanent to be constructed, and 
who was empowered to terminate the contract wheneyer he deemed it for the railroad's 
best interest. The railroad was to pay the contractor a certain price for each cubic yard 
of grading done, and the contractor obligated himself to take certain precautions, to pay 
damages to stock and other property occasioned by his negligence and to save the rail- 
road harmless from liens. Held, that the contractor was not an independent contractor, 
but the servant of the railroad, for whose nci^Ugeiice in removing soil from private 
property the railroad was liable. 

In an action against a railroad for damages caused by the removal of soil from 
plaintiff's land, where the land from which the soil was taken was rendered practically 
valueless, and the title remained in plaintiff, the measure of damages was the difference 
in the value of plaintlflC's land before and after the liUnry, and not the mere value of the 
soil actually taken. 

Where a railroad removed soil belonging to plaintiff from both sides of its right of 
way through a considerable portion of plaintllTs farm, plaintiff's damages, as determiit- 
ed by the diminution in value of his farm, shonld be estimated on the basis of his entire 
farm, considered as a unit, instead of merely on the basis of narrow strips of land along 
the track. 

In an action against a railroad for the remotml of soil from the sides of defendant's 
right of way, running through plaintiff's land, the evidence showed that the effect of the 
excavations made by defendant widening the cats previously made, was to actually ap- 
propriate the soil from less than an acre of plaintiff's ground, leaving the sides nearly 
perpendicular. Further evidence as to the recession of the upper edge of the cut showed 
that the land which would be rendered unlit for farming purposes would not exceed 
two acres in all. One of defendant's witnesses testified, without any inquiry being made 
as to the grounds of his opinion, that the farm, as a whole (160 acres), was damaged 
in the sum of $1 per acre. The land was worth not to exceed $75 per acre. Held, 
that a verdict for $450 would be cut down to $300. Parrott v. Chicago Grreat Western

The failure of employes to give warning of the approach of the train to a point 
where men and teams are known to be at work about the track may be negligence as a 
matter of fact, though not negligence per se arising from a failure to give the sig- 
nals prescribed by Code, Sec. 2072, on approaching highway cTosslngs. 

Proof that a train vr&a operated at a speed prohibited by a municipal ordinance is 
evidence from which a jury may find that the excessive rate of speed was the proximate 
cause of an injury to a team employed in repairing the track and struck by the train. 

[Ed. Note. — For cases in point, see vol. 41, Cent. Dig. Railroads, Sec. 1485.] 

The testimony of the engineer In charge of a train that he did all he could to stop 
the train before injury to a team was not conclusive on the Jury where there was 

evidence that the train might have been stopped after the discovery of the peril and 
before the injury. 

The employes in charge of the train on discovering that an unattended team employed 
in repairing the track Is approaching the track must exercise ordinary care to stop the 
train and avoid injury. 

(Ed. Note. — For cases in point, see vol. 41, Cent. Dig. Railroads, Sees. 1496, 1497.) 

A person left his team unattended and untied near a railroad track. It was used

In an action for Injuries to a child of six by the falling of a panel of a railroad 
snow fence, which defendant railroad company had been licensed by the child's father to 
erect on the father's property, evidence held to require submission of defendant's alleged 
negligence in constructing and fastening the fence to the Jury. 

In an action for injuries to a child of six evidence that after his injury he would 
cry out and weep as if in pain, and would otherwise give manifestations of physical suf- 
fering, and would complain from time to timo that his broken limb hurt him, was ad- 
missible. 

[Ed. Note. — For cases in point, see vol. 15, Cent. Dig. Damages, Sec. 485; vol. 20, 
Cent. Dig. Evidence, Sec. 381.] 

In an action for injuries to a boy of six, evidence that his father was a day laborer 
in a planing mill, and that he earned about $2 a day, was admissible, on the presumption 
that the child would follow his father's vocation. 

Where, in an action for injuries to a boy six years old by the falling of a railroad snow 
fence erected on land belonging to the boy's father, there was evidence warranting a 
finding of negligence in the original construction of the fence, the mere fact that, earlier 
in the same day on which the accident occurred, plaintiff and his younger brother found 
the panel down, and lifted it back into its original position, did not constitute such an 
independent intervening cause, disconnected with the former act of defendant's negli- 
gence, as showed, as a matter of law, that the proximate cause of the injury was not 
the original negligence of defendant in erecting the fence. 

In an action for injuries to a child of six by the falling of a panel of a railroad snow 
fence, plaintiff was only chargeable with such a degree of care as a child of his age 
would be reasonably expected to exercise under similar circumstances.

A railroad brakeman aBSumes the ordinary hazards of his employment and risks 
Incident to defects in the track of which he has or should have knowledge, but does not

to diBcoyer. 

[Ed. Note. — For cases in ponti, see yol. 84, Cent. Dig. Master and Servant, Sees. 
674-578.] 

In an action against a railroad for injuries to a brakeman, a charge on the issue 
of defendant's negligence was not erroneous because it failed, in stating the conditions of 
defendant's liability, to take into consideration the questions of assumption of risk, 
contributory negligence, and a violation of the rairoad's rules. 

In an action against a railroad for injuries to a brakeman, a charge that the Jury

position which he was in when hurt, was in the absence of a request for a more specific 
Instruction, sufficient on the effect of a rule of the railrad prohibiting the backing of

Complainant alleged the coHectloD bjr defendants of charges In excess of the 
tariff rate on certain shipments of tmlt from Michigan points to Chicago, and an 
unlawful contract wfth a dellyerlns acent In Chicago, and thereupon complainant insisted 
that defendants had been guilty of penal offenses under the law which should be 
reported for prosecution. The complainant disclaimed at the hearing any demand for 
damages or reparation. The facta whaw errors in charges arising from lack of knowledge 
by the agent at Chicago of the kind of package used, or the actual contents of the 
package shipped to complainant, the ahlpments having been unloaded by complainant, 
and also from a practice by the agent of the Initial carrier at one point temporarily 
used as a receiving station for fmft, of making a charge in addition to the freight rate 
without the knowledge of the railroad company. The compensation paid to the delivering 
agent in Chicago for unloading and handling the freight in that city was apparently 
reasonable. Held, upon consideration of the evidence, that defendants were not guilty 
of any ^-llful or fntentfonal violation of the law. 10 I. C. C. Rep.

Decided Jannary 7, 1006. 

The complainant, an Incorporated asBodatloii, la entitled nnder section 13 of the 
Act to regulate commerce to bring and maintain a proceeding of this character. 

The defendant, the Atchison, Topeka it Santa Fe Railway Company, removed the 
discrimination complained of as to its ionea, and it appeared that the defendant, the 
St. Louis & San Francisco Railroad Company; does not participate in the rates in 
question. Complaint as to those lines dlamlased. 

Defendants exact higher rates for tranaportins cattle and hogs than for transporting 
live-stock products to Chicago from points west, northwest and southw^est thereof, 
including Missouri river points and Sontli St. Panl. Minn. Upon all the facts and 
circumstances, Held, 

1. That such discrimination is not joatllled by difference In cost of transportation 
or otherwise, and subjects the traffic in cattle and hogs at Chicago and other points, 
and those interested therein, to undue and onreasonable prejudice and disadvantage, 
and gives to the traffic In the products of liogs and cattle, and to shippers and localities 
interested in such traffic, undue and unreasonable preference and advantage, in violation 
of the Act to regulate ccMnmerce. Chicago Board of Trade v. C. A. R. Co., (4 I. C. C. 
Rep. 158) reaffirmed and the principle therein announced extended to the transportation 
of cattle and their products. 

2. That the desire of a carrier to secnre additional business for its line of road 
does not Justify a change in the relation of rmtea resulting in a higher rate upon cattle 
and hogs, the raw material, than upon livestock product, the manufactured article, 
where, is in this case, the articles are in sliarp competition with each other in the 
markets of purchase and sale, where it appears that upon other lines and in other 
sections rates are generally no higher, and in many instances much lower, on the 
traffic prejudiced than on that favored by cliange, and where numerous and important 
Industries, which have been built up and maintained under the former adjustment, 
and those interested in such Industries, will lie iiOnrlously affected by the action taken.

arbitrary charge of 5 cents per 100 pounds when the shipping point is Saginaw, 
Mich., but only 2 cents per 100 pounds when the shipping point is Buffalo, N. Y. 
Water competition between Buffalo and New York affects the rates to New York, but it

BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 329 

Kansas City and other Missouri River polhts, increased those rates to 47 cents to 
Wichita and 32 cents to Missouri River points, thereby increasing the differential as 
between Wichita and Kansas City from 5 cents to 15 cents per hundred pounds, and 
that the new rates were, as against Wichita, unjust and unreasonable in themselves 
and relatively; and It was further alleged that new advanced rates from other points 
of origin imposed the same differential as between Wichita and Kansas City, and that, 
as against Wichita, those rates wxire also unlawful. Wichita and Kansas City compete 
for the sale of sugar in common competitive territory. The competitive conditions 
applying in the transportation of this traffic to Wichita and Kansas City are stated and 
found not to Justify the 15-cent differential against Wichita, and the existing rates to 
Wichita are excessive. Held : 

1. That the rate of 47 cents on sugar from New Orleans to Wichita is unreasonable. 

2. That the present differential of 15 cents applied at Wichita above Kansas City 
on shipments of sugar from the Atlantic Seaboard and New Orleans subjects Wichita 
to undue discrimination ; and such differential should not be more than 8 cents per 
100 pounds. 

3. That as to traffic passing through Wichita to Kansas City the rule laid down 
in Johnston-Larimer D. Co. ▼. A., T. & B. F. Ry. Co. 6 I. C. C. Rep. 586, forbidding any 
higher charge to Wichita than to Kansas City on shipments from Galveston, is, in the 
light of decisions of the United States Supreme Court, no longer applicable, and 
defendants operating lines through Wichita to Kansas City are not prohilbted from 
charging a higher rate on sugar to Wichita than to Kansas City so long as the 
Wichita rate is reasonable. 10 I. C. C. Rep. 



In the matteb of alleged unlawful bates and pbactices in the transportation 
OF coal and mine supplies by the Atchison^ Topeka and Santa Fe . Railway 
Company. 

Decided February 1, 1005. 

The act to regulate commerce, which requires carriers to publish and adhere to their 
tariffs, has been grossly and continuously violated by the Atchison, Topeka and Santa 
Fe Railway Company during the last five years in the following respects: It 
published rates on interstate shipments of coal from mines in Colorado and New 
Mexico which, under the tariffs, applied only to the transportation thereof, but which 
for the Colorado Fuel and Iron company were made by the railway company to include 
the price of the coal, and such price was paid to the fuel and iron company by the railway 
company. While giving rebates to the fuel and iron company from such tariff rates. 
It charged the full tariff rates on interstate shipments of coal by other shippers in not 
only the general coal region involved, but in the same coal field. This practice of the 
railwtty company resulted in closing markets for coal to shippers competing with the 
Colorado Fuel and Iron' Company. 

The act of February 10, 1003 (the so-called Elklns law,) which prohibits carriers 
from transporting traffic until a tariff has been published, requires observance of the 
tariff, provides a penalty for each violation of not less than $1,000 nor more than $20,000, 
and applies both to the carrier and the party receiving the concession, has, respecting 
the transportation involved In this proceeding, been systematically and continuously 
violated by the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway Company and the Colorado 
Fuel and Iron Company from the day of its passage down to November 27, 1904, when 
the tariffs upon which this coal moved were reduced in all cases $1.15 ; and this no^ 
withstanding the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Rallwtiy company has, in suit begun 
In the United States circuit court at the instance and request of this Commission, been 
under injunction since March 25, 1902, to observe in all respects its published schedules 
of rates. 10 I. C. C. Rep.

Decided Fefcruary 7, 1905, 

Defendants made effective on June 22, 1003, an advance of 2 cents per 100 pounds 
over ratra previously In effect from Georgia points to Ohio River destinations on lumber 
In carloads, whether shipped locally to said Ohio River points or shipped beyond. The 
rates prior to that date were In effect from September 8, 1899, on which date an advance 
was made of 1 cent from Group 2 points on the Southern Railway, and 2 cents from most 
other grouped shipping points in Georgia, over rates In force May 17, 1804. From the 
various groups the present advanced rates to Cincinnati, Louisville and Evansvllle are, 
as to some, 4 cents higher than in 1892, and as to others, 3 cents higher than In 
1891. The rates prior to the advance complained of were remunerative to the carriers. 
jjctd :— 

1. That complainants, constituting only a small portion of the membership of the 
Georgia Saw Mill AsRociation, which Is alleged by defendants to be an unlawful associa- 
tion, were entitled to bring and maintain this proceeding In their own behalf and In the 
interr-st of all shippers of the traffic Involved and others constituting the public at large. 

2. That the advance of rates complained of in this case wYis the result of concertetf 
action by defendants and other carriers : and while the question whether such concert 
of action is in violation of the "Anti-Trust Act" is for determination only by the 
courts, it is the province and duty of this Commission, when the reasonableness of rates 
is In Issue before it. to consider whether the advanced rates resulted from untrammeled 
competition, or were fixed by concert of action of combination of the carriers. 

3. That where an advance Is made In rates which have been long maintained, 
and the evidence shows that the traffic affected Is large, important, and constantly 
increasing, the advance will be held unjust, unless it is satisfactorily explained. 

4. That the test of the reasonableness of a rate is not the amount of profit In the 
business of the shipper or manufacturer, but whether the rate yields a reaBonable 
compensation for the services performed. Carriers necessarily and justly participate 
In the prospertly of their patrons in the resultant enlargement of their own business, and 
no rule Is more firmly grounded in reason, or more universnlly recognized by carrier*, 
than that the greater the tonnage of the article transported, the lower should be the rate. 

5. That If permanent improvements are not Included In the operating expenses of 
defendants, and if only such expenditures for equipment as are properly chargeable to 
a single year are included, the percentage of operating expenses to gross earnings will 
be materially reduced. 

6. That carters have no right to advance a rate which is already reasonablj 
high and which yields nn adequate return for the services rendered, solely because 
additional revenue is needed. The mere fact of the need of additional revenue to meet 
Increased expenses does not Justify the advance in rates on these lumber shipments 
from Georgia to and beyond the Ohio River, which are, for the most part, of low 
grade and comparatively small value. 

7. That the building of flat cars empty to the mills, or the practice of shippers to 
load cars below their capacity, are conditions which, to the extent they exist, are 
properly taken into account by carriers In fixing rates ; and It must be assumed that 
they were considered by defendants in making and maintaining the rates so long In 
force prior to the advance herein charged. 

8. That the rates on lumber, prior to the advance complained of, were reasonably 
high when compared with the rates on other commodities which are at all analogous to 
lumber in respe<»t to value, volume, risk, cost of hauling, and other circumstances and 
conditions affecting the transportation of the traffic. 



BOARD OF RAIROAD COMMISSIONERS, 331 

9. That lumber rates should be relatively lo^r, in view of the limited life of the 
lumber business in Georgia, at the end of which lar^e investments of manufacturers in 
plants, including buildings, machinery and tram roads, will become practically valueless^ 
the Increase in the net revenue of the roads caused by the lumber traffic, the fact that 
lumber is inexpensive freight and few other commodities furnish greater tonnage, the 
constancy of the traffic throughout the year, the fact that no special equipment is 
required for its movement, that it is loaded by shippers and unloaded by consignees, 
that when flat or open cars are furnished the shipper is at considerable expense to equip 
them so as to protect the lumber and the train, that it is not a perishable freight and 
does not require rapidity of movement, that there is small risk and in case of accident 
the damage Is insignificant, and that lumber is an article of general utility. 

10. That the advance of 2 cents per 100 pounds in defendants' rates on lumber 
from Georgia shipping points to Ohio River points, which was made effective June 22, 
IDO'St was not wiarranted by the facts, circumstances and conditions disclosed in this 
case, and that the increased rates then put in force are unreasonable and unjust. 10

Decided February 7, 1905. 

Complaint was made of an advance by defendants of 2 cents per 100 pounds on 
April 15, 1903 (except as to the L. & N. R. Co., as to which the advance became 
effective June 22, 1903), in the rates on lumber in carloads from points in lumber 
producing territories east of the Mississippi River in Louisana, Missouri, and part 
of Alabama served by defendant roads, to Ohio River points, applying both on ship- 
ments locally to such Ohio River points and to shipments destined beyond. On 
September 9, 1809, the rate previously in effect from May 1, 1894, was advanced one 
cent, making a total advance of 3 cents since May 1, 1894. The rates prior to the 
advance on April 15, 1903. were remunerative to the defendant carriers. Held : 

1. That wheu a railroad company a^ances at a rate which has been for some 
time in force, the fact of its continuance is in the nature of an admissioif against that 
company which tends to show the unreasonableness of the advance ; and in this case 
the rates in effect for long periods prior to the advance are shown to have been 
profitable to the defendant carriers. 

2. That the test of the reasonableness of a rate is not the amount of profit in the 
business of the shipper or manufacturer, but whether the rate yields a reasonable 
compensation for the services performed. Carriers necessarily and Justly participate In 
the prosperity of their patrons in the resultant enlargement of their own business. 

3. That the advance in rates by defendants was not Justified by increased cost of 
operating the roads, for while the operating expenses have constantly increased, they 
have been enlarged by the inclusion therein of large expenditures for permanent 
improvements, and defendant's gross earnings have increased from year to year to such 
extent as to result in a constant increase of net earnings. 

4. That the value of the entire property of a road employed for the public conven- 
ience can shed but little, if any, light upon the question whether the rate on one among 
thousands of articles of traffic yields its proper proportion of a fair return upon that 
value, and moreover, the voluminous and conflicting testimony in this cose on that 
subject docs not enable the Commission to determine the value of defendants' respective 
properties. 

5. That 'the elements to be considered in determining the reasonableness of an entire 
system of rates are widely different from those involved in the question of the reasonable- 
ness of the rate upon a single commodity. 

6. That the advance of rates complained of in Ihls case w%8 the result of cencerted 
action by defendants and other carriers ; and while the question whether such concert 
of action is In violation of the "Anti-Trust Act" is for determination only by the courts, 
it is the province and duty of this Commission when the reasonableness of rates Is 
in issue before it, to consider whether the advanced rates resulted from untrammeled 
competition, or were fixed by concert of action or combination of carriers.

7. That the rates in effect prior to the adyance were reasonably high when compared 
with the rates on other commodities wiilch are at ail analogons to lumber in respect to 
value, volume and the various conditions affecting the service of transportation. 

8. That carriers have no right to advance a rate which is already reasonably 
high and which yields an adequate return for the services rendered solely because 
additional revenue is needed. 

9. That logging roads or "tap lines," to which the defendant M. & O. R. Ca 
grants allowances from its published rates, are not common carriers, but such tap 
lines are the private properties of mill owners, and the allowances are therefore unlaw- 
ful. Cent, Yellow Pine Aaan. v. V. S. & P. R. R. Co. (10 I. C. C. Rep. 193). cited and 
applied. 

10. That section 3, of the Act to regulate commerce, which phohlblts undue prefer- 
ences as between individuals or localities, Is not violated by the failure or refusal of 
defendants to make "tap line" allowances to mill owners in their territory while sudi 
allowances are granted to mill owners by other carriers in the territoy w^est of the 
Mississippi ; but if the rate west of the Mississippi River, minus the allowance. Is 
reasonable, it -tends to support the proposition that a similar reduction east of the river 
would leave the rate reasonably high ; and the M. & O. R. Co., by voluntarily maXlag 
such allowances east of the river, practically concedes this proposition as to itself. 

11. That no rule is more firmly grounded in reason or more universally recognisefl 
by carriers, than that the greater the tonnage of an aticle of trafDc, the lower should be 
the rate, but defendants have made yellow pine lumber an exception to this rule. 

12. That lumber rates should be relatively low, in view of the fact that lumber la 
Inexpensive freight and few other commodities furnish to carriers so large a tonnage; 
that the lumber business is constant, yielding carriers revenue all the year ; that no 
special equipment is constructed or furnished for its carriage; that it is loaded by 
shippers and unloaded by consignees, and where open cars are furnished the shipper 
it required, at considerable expense, to equip them so as to protect the lumber and the 
train ; and that there is small risk and in case of accident the damage is insignificant. 

13. That the advance on April 15, 1903, of 2 cents per 100 pounds In the rate 
from the shipping points in question to the Ohio River wns not warranted, and that 
the resultant increased rates are unreasonable and unjust. 10 I. C. C. Rep.

1., Defendant's minimum carload weight of 26.000 pounds for the carriage of 
citrus fruit in refrigerator or ventilator cars from Southern California points to eastern 
destination Is not nnrensonable with the 40-foot car in general use. 

2. Whether or not the regulating statute applies to refrigeration charges In all 
cases, the defendants, by compelling shippers to pay Icing charges on citrus fruits as 
established by the car lines or do without necessary refrigeration for the traffic have 
made these charges part of the coat of transportation and subject to regulation under 
the law. 

3. The refrigeration charges applying on shipments of citrus fruits from Southern 
California points to eastern markets have been reduced during the pendency of this pro- 
ceeding, and the present charges for refrigeration are not found, upon the record of this 
case, to be unreasonable. 

4. Defendants are unla^i^ully engaged in pooling the traffic in citrus fruits originat- 
ing In Southern rallfornla and carried by them and their connections to. eastern 
markets. Further action upon that branch of this proceeding is reserved by the

Pebe Mabquei'te Railboad Company. 
Decided February 18, 1905. 

While the Act to regulate commerce contains no provision which expressly or by 
proper implication gives this Commission jurisdiction in cases merely showing delay 
or negligence in the receipt, forwarding or delivery of property offered for transportation, 
including the furnLshing of cars the regulating statute does prohibit any unjust 
discrimination or wrongful prejudice in the provision of cars or other transportation 
facilities, as well as in the fixing and application of transportation, charges. 

Every shipper is legally entitled to fair opportunity and treatment in the use of 
these public utilities, and any discrimination which in substantial degree deprives 
shippers of such use must be considered unjust, unless forced by Justifying conditions. 
In such a case the burden of proof is upon the complainant to the extent of showing 
discrimination, and then upon the carrier to show that the discrimination was Justified. 

Merely putting in evidence defendant's rule of car apportionment is insufllcient 
to show discrimination against the complainant ; the actual effect of the rule, during 
the time covered by the complaint is necessary to a determination of the question of 
unfairness in the distribution of cars. 

It appears generally from the facts in this case that in furnishing cars defendant 
unjustly discriminated against the complainant, which desired to ship hay from various 
points in Michigan, but the proof fails to indicate with any degree of certainty the 
damage caused by the wrongful discrimination and the amount which the complain- 
ant is entitled to recover by way of reparation. Complainant granted leave to apply 
within a limited time for further hearing. 10 I. C. C. Rep.

The Pennsylvania Railboad Company. 
Decided March 10, 1005. 

The right of complainant to ship coal was not barred by the fact that he is 8 
druggist by occupation, or that he loaded coal cars from wagons, for a large part 
of the commerce of the country is handled in that way ; and when lie tendered freight 
for fransportation he was entitled to the same facilities furnished to other shippers 
under like conditions. 

During the anthracite coal strike of 1002, which caused an extremely large lemand 
for bituminous coal and great increase in the price of that coal, complainant arranged 
for the purchase and sale of the surplus product of certain bituminous mines, called 
surface or country mines, and for hauling the coal by wagon to stations or sidings 
and loading upon defendant's cars. Under normal conditions this could not be done 
at a profit. Complainaht demanded and received several cars during the month of 
November, 1902. In that month defendant issued a rule limiting its coal cars to 
mines having track connectioq with its road, and this rule was kept in force during 
the strike period. The demand for coal throughout the strike resulted in the greatest 
tax upon the railroad equipment and in the congestion of lines, yards and termi- 
nals. The mines loading by tipple and by track connection received far less than 
their usual car supply. Under those and other attendant conditions, defendant's tem- 
porary rule, confining its comparatively few available cars to mines generally in 
operation, where quick loading could be accomplished, and declining to permit its 
sidings or switches to be further congested by loading coal from wagons, not only by

No opinion Is expressed upon the point ^^ether a railroad may, under ordinary 
•conditions, discriminate In furnishing cars as between the methods of loading by tipple 
and wagon, or whether without a rule It may, even In great emergency, discriminate 
between the two classes of shipments, and the decision Is confined to the particular 
situation disclosed by the record In this proceeding. 10 I. C. C. Rep.

Decided March 25, 1005. 

A ruling that an antecedent haul to one locality and no previous transportation 
to a competing locality constitute justification for a lower charge from the former

by the Act to regulate commerce. 

With comi)€tition for the carrlnge of grain to and via Duluth and other northern 
lake ports, rates of lu cents on wheat and m^ cents on other grain from Minneapolis 
to Chicago are as high as can be obtained by the all-rall lines between those points, 
and competition by lines other than the defendants from Minneapolis to East St. 
Louis has fixed the rate by all lines at 10 cents per 100 pounds, and this also controls 
the rate to Louisville. The rates from Cannon Falls, a point In Minnesota 48 miles 
from Minneapolis, to Chicago, East St. Louis and Louisville, are also competitive 
rates, and In Its competition with Minneapolis Cannon Falls Is entitled to as low 
rates to common points as the difference in conditions will permit. In view, however, 
of the desirability of keeping open the Minneapolis market to Cannon Falls grain, 
the short distance between those points, and the low rate from Minneapolis forced 
by competition, it Is apparently not unjust that the grain rate from Cannon Falls 
should be ns high as the local rate to Minneapolis plus a 7% cent rate therefrom 
to Chicago, provided the Cannon Falls dealer is not thereby subjected to disadvan- 
tage as compared with the Minneapolis grain dealer. 

Under present rate conditions the Cannon Falls shipper is subjected to disad- 
vantage as follows : 

I'irst : The combination of rates on rye and other coarse grain from Cannon 
L>lls to Minneapolis and Minneapolis to Chicago Is H cent less than the straight 
rate from Cannon Falls to Chicago, and this Is without Justification. 

Second ; The favorable locatioD of Cannon Falls with reference to Minneapolis and 
Duluth and the competitive advantage to which the Cannon Falls dealer Is entitled 
by reason of the route via Duluth, are neutralized to an extent by manipulation of 
billing at Minneapolis whereby Cannon Falls grain sold In Minneapolis can be recon- 
slgned to I>uluth under a substituted billing and the balance of a through rate, result- 
ing in a loss total charge from Cannon Falls to Duluth than the charge on a through 
shipment from Cannon Falls to Duluth. 

Third : The rate on rye, barley and other coarse grain from Cannon Falls to 
Louisville or East St. Louis is wrongfully higher than the rate on wheat between 
the same points. 10 I. C. C. Rep.

Railroads. 
Decided March 25, 1905. 

Carriers operating lines to points west of the Mississippi * River make rates to 
such points which are the same from East St. Louis, 111., as from St. Louis, Mo. 
A large portion of the less than carload traffic is hauled by team from East St. 



BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 335 

L.OUIS to the depots of the rail carriers in St. Louis, mostly by regularly organized 
transfer companies, but to some extent by teams ow'ned by shippers. The rail car- 
riers accept delivery at depots of the transfer companies in East St. Louis, pay the 
transfer companies 5 cents per 100 pounds for such transfer to St. Louis, and also 
pay a like sum to the Grunt Chemical Company, a shipper, for a similar transfer 
of that company's shipments from East St. Louis, but refuse to make such payments 
to other shippers. The Eclipse Transfer Company was organized for the sole pur- 
pose of obtaining these payments ; it uses teams owned by the Simmons Uardware 
Company, and uses the storehouse of the latter for a receiving depot. Under the 
circumstances, Held: That the payments to the Grant Chemical Company and the 
Eclipse Transfer Company are illegal. No opinion is expressed as to whether lines 
leading west from St. Louis may properly apply the St. Louis rate to the station 
of a bona fide transfer company In East St. Louis and absorb the cost of transfer 
to St. Louis; nor whether the rail carriers may, by proper schedules, allow all ship- 
pers from East St. Louis a fixed sum per 100 pounds for transporting their mer- 
chandise to the carriers' depots In St. Louis, those questions not being presented by 
the record in this proceeding. 

The Granite City, Alton & Eastern Railroad Company was organized for the pur- 
pose of operating several thousand feet of railway used In the business of the St. 
Louis Sirup and Preserving Company and located on the latter's private grounds 
at Granite City, 111. The Granite City Company has constructed a short track out- 
side the limits of the grounds of the Preserving Company and uses, jointly with other 
parties, another track about 3,000 feet In length. By means of these tracks the Gran- 
ite City Company connects with other railroad companies and Is paid by the latter 
certain divisions of transportation charges on traffic shipped by the Preserving Com- 
pany and hauled to such connections by the Granite City Company. Assuming that 
the Granite City Company and the Preserving Company are identical In ownership 
concerning which a definite finding Is not made, Held: That the payments to the 
Granite City Company constitute rebates and are Illegal. 

The Illinois Terminal Railroad Company was organized In the Interest of the 
Illinois Glass Company and uses tracks constructed by the latter on Its private grounds 
at Alton, 111., for the purpose of connecting Its plant with different lines of rail- 
way. Facts relating to the construction and operation of the terminal road are stated. 
Held: That If the Glass Company owns and operates the Illinois Terminal Railroad, 
the case Is In all respects Identical with the facts developed at the Chicago hear- 
ing In this Investigation (10 1. C. C. Rep. 385) and the conclusions there announced 

apply here ; but if the holders of the capital* stock of the Glass (.'ompany own the 
Railroad Company, a different question may be presented. 10 1. C. C. Bep.

Decided April 11, 1905. 

Shippers are not entitled aj a matter of right to mill grain In transit and for- 
ward the milled product uader the through rate In force on the grain from the 
point of origin to the place of ultimate destination ; but allowance of th,e privilege 
by a carrier to shippers In one section must be without wrongful prejudice to the 
rights of shippers In another section served by Its line. 

Considering the defendants as a single line, the granting of transit milling west 
of Pittsburg and denying It to millers at Uarrlsburg Is not necessarily unlawful, 
because conditions on that line In Ohio and Indiana may be very different from con- 
ditions in eastern Pennsylvania, and it does not follow that the allowance of transit 
privileges In the former territory requires as a matter of law the like allowance 
In the latter territory ; but such differences have not been shown, nor their bearing 
explained, by the testimony In this proceeding, and upon the meager and Incomplete 
facts now appearing, the Commission Is not warranted In making a decision which In 
principle, if complainants' contention Is well founded, would involve a general exten* 
slon of transit privileges into a large territory where heretofore such privileges have 
not been allowed. Case continued for further hearing. 10 I. C. C. Rep.

St. Louis & San Fbancisco Railboad Company and TfiZAS & Pacific Railway Coicpahy. 

Decided April 24, 1906. 

Complainants shipped two carloads of snapped com over the railways of the St. 
Louis & San Francisco and Texas & Pacific companies, from Oroye, Indian Territory, 
to Marshall, Texas. On one carload defendants exacted a charge of 44^ cents per 
100 pounds and on the other 31^ cents. The only published rates in effect and 
•ppUcable to the shipments were, an interstate rate of the former company of 21 
cents per 100 pounds plus 25 per cent for the transportation to Paris, Texas, and 
a proportional rate of the latter for transportation from Paris to Marshall of 14^ 
cents, except that the T. & P. Company's tariff provided that lower combinations by 
other roads would be protected. Upon one shipment the tariff purporting to name 
the rates was an association tariff consisting of 297 pages, filled with notes, excep- 
ceptions and special references. Indicated by a host of arbitrary signs, and was so 
involved that the freight officials of the carriers could not agree, and the Auditor of 
the Commission found It difficult to determine the rate which did apply. Held: 

1. That the rate of the St. L. & S. F. Company for the transpartotion to Paris was 
excessive and unreasonable to the extent that It exceeded 21 cents per 100 pounds. 

2. That the proportional rate of the T. & P. Company of 14^ cents per 100 pounds 
is assumed to be reasonable. 

3. That complainants are entitled to reparation to the extent that the charges 
exacted from them exceeded 35 Mi cents per 100 pounds. 

4. 'That It is the duty of railroad companies, under the Act to regulate commerce, 
to print, publish and file tariffs showing rates which are so simplified that persons 
of ordinary comprehension can understand them ; and that a notation In the tariff 
of one carrier making reference to the tariff of some competing carrier does not meet 
the requirement of the law that the rate charged shall be published and filed. 10 I.

unreasonable to the extent that they exceeded 15 cents for the transportation from 
Fort Worth to the destinations named, and that complainant Is entitled to reparation

Decided April 24, 1905. 

Complainant desired to ship cotton seed in carloads from Louisiana stations on 
defendant's line to Hope Ark., at the sum of local rates based upon Texarkana, Ark., 
which sum was less than the published through charged, but defendant refused to 
apply Its local rate to Texarkana, which was 12% cents per 100 pounds, on such 
through- shipments, and also refused to allow complainant to ship locally to Texar- 
kana under the 12% cent rate In force to that point. Held: That while defendant 
was entitled to Insist upon the application of the through rate to the through ship- 
ment to Hope, It could not lawfully refuse to receive and carry complainant's freight 
to Texarkana under Us local rate to that point, and that complainant Is entitled to 
reparation for damages resulting from Its Inability to ship 640 tons of cotton seed 
to Hope which It had contracted for and desired to have transported over defendant's

In the mattes of differential FBEIQHT bates to and FBOM NOBTH ATLANTIC POBTB. 

Decided April 27, 1905. 

Rates on freight articles from the West to Baltimore, Philadelphia and Boston 
are adjusted according to the following differentials below or above the rates to New 
York : Domestic traflSc — 3 cents less to Baltimore and 2 cents less to Philadelphia ; 7 
cents, first class, to 2 cents, sixth class, more to Boston. Export traffic — same as 
domestic traffic to Baltimore and Philadelphia, except on grain and iron and steel arti- 
cles, which are 1 % cents less to Baltimore and 1 cent less to Philadelphia ; same 
rates to Boston as to New York on this traffic. On ex-lake g^rain received at Buffalo, 
Falrport and Erie, there Is, pending the disposition of this caise, a differential in 
favor of Baltimore of 4-10 of a cent per bushel below the rate to New York, but no 
differential in favor of Philadelphia. It was contended by New York and Boston that 
the differentials favoring Baltimore and Philadelphia should be abolished. Upon 
voluntary submissin of the controversy to the Commission by all parties, domestic 
traffic was excluded from consideration. For reasons stated no opinion is expressed 
concerning the relative rates on import traffic. With respect to export differentials, — 

Held: 1. That the differential per 100 pounds on flour, all-rail and lake and 
rail, should be reduced to 2 cents at Baltimore and 1 cent at Philadelphia. 2. That 
the existing differential on ex-lake grain should be reduced to 3-10 of a cent per 
bushel and be allowed both to Baltimore and Philadelphia. 8. That otherwise the 
present export differentials should remain in force. 10 1. C. C. Rep.

carrier may inaist that the conaignee ahall accept anch delivery ; and in caae the 
consignee intercepts and sells the carload while upon a hold track, after arrival at 
East St Louis but before such delivery, he thereby accepts delivery. If the conaignee 
instead of removing the hay from the car so delivered, sells it to complainant, and 
a carrier, upon an order of the original conaignee or of complainant, moves the car 
to complainant's storehouse in East St. Louis, that is a new and independent service 
on reconsignment performed entirely within the state of Illinois, of which this Com- 
mission has no Jurisdiction ; but It Is considered that Congress might, directly or 
through the Commission, require that shippers shall be allowed a certain time after 
arrival In East St. Louis to designate the point of delivery for interstate shipments, 
and that such delivery be made accordingly. 11 I. C. C. Rep.

v. 

Mobile & Onio Railboad Company; Illinois Central Railboad Company; Louisville 

& Nashville Railboad Company; and Southebn Railway Company. 

Decided May 15, 1005. 

Stopping a commodity In transit for treatment or reconsignment Is lu the nature 
of a special privilege which the carrier may concede, but which the ahlpper, under 
the present state of the law, cannot demand as a matter of lawful right ; but car- 
riers may not unjustly discriminate between markets or Individuals In the granting 
of such privileges. 

In allowing the privilege of reconsigning hay at East St. Louis to southern des- 
tinations, defendants are entitled to charge for such privilege what It actually coeta 
them ; and the fair avecage cost to the • carrier when complainant or others handle the 
hay through warehouses at East St. Louis, over and above the cost of handling In 
East St. Louis a through shipment via East St. Louis to southern destinations, is 
|2 to $2.50 per car, or approximately 1 cent per 100 lbs. Shipments routed through 
Bast St. Louis are carried from that point to southern destinations at a proportional 
rate, which Is 2 cents per 100 lbs. above the rate from Ohio River crossings to the 
same destinations. Hay reconslgned to such points from warehouses In East St. Louis 
Is charged 4 cents per 100 lbs. above the Ohio River rate. Hay appears to be recon- 
slgned from ware houses at Ohio River points, and at Nashville and Memphis to south- 
ern points without additional charge. 

Held, upon all the facts, that defendants' rates on reconslgnments of hoy from 
warehouses in East St Louis to points south of the Ohio River, amounting to 2 
cents more than their proportional rate from East St. Louis on through shipments, 
are unjust and unreasonable, and that complainant is entitled to reparation. 11 I. C.

The phrase "under substantially similar circumstances and conditions" in section

permissible under that section for two or more carriers to establish a Joint through

or class of shippers, while denying such lower rate to other shippers of like traffic 
between the same points of origin and destination. Wight v. United Btat€$, 167 U.

Michigan Centbal Railboaos 

Decided June 22, 1005. 

Railroad companies are required at common la\r to furnish suitable facilities for 
the conduct of the business in which they engage, and it follows that the respondent 
railroad companies, holding themselves out aa carriers of perishable fruit, must pro- 
Tide the necessary refrigerator cars for the transportation of that traffic. 

During perormance df the transportation the car is to every practical Intent the 
car of the railroad company using it, and its measure of responsibility as to the suffi- 
ciency of the car is the same, whether it obtains the car by purchase or lease. 

Where a railroad company holds itself out as the carrier of a commodity which 
can only move under refrigeration, its duty extends ordinarily to furnishing that 
refrigeration, for the icing is not a mere Incident to the transportation service, but 
is a part of the service itself, and properly speaking, it Is not ice but refrigeration 
that the carrier furnishes to accompany the shipment during every movement of its 
Journey. In the case under consideration, where the railroad company Insists that 
the ice shall be supplied only by the party whom it appoints, and where It collects 
from the shipper and passes over to his party the compensation for that service, 
the railroad company must stand responsible for the refrigeration as for any other 
part of the transportation. 

Refrigeration, being incumbent upon the carrier as part of the transportation, 
the charge for that service stands like any other charge for transportation. It is 
the duty of the carrier to publish, file with the Commission, and observe its refriger- 
ation charges, and the Comission has the same jurisdiction to inquire into the Justice 
and reasonableness of such charges as of any other charge for the transportation of 
passengers or property. 

It is not within the province of the Commislon to prescribe the method or kind 
of refrigeration charges which shall be adopted by the carrier. ' 

A reasonable refrigeration charge on Michigan fruits shipped to interstate des- 
tinations from points in Michigan, when based upon the ice actually used, would be 
$2.50 per 'ton, and reasonable and Just charges, if made by the car, are also found 
and stated for the service from Michigan to the destinations involved. As a result 
of this investigation the Michigan Central R. Co. has established for the present 
season the reasonable charge of $2.50 per ton for ice actually used, and that com- 
pany is dismissed from the proceeding. The Pere Marquette R. Co., while under con- 
tract to continue its use of the Armour cars during the presnet season, has made reduc- 
tions in its refrigeration charges amounting to from 15 to 30 per cent to apply dur- 
ing this season, and has filed a statement with the Commission that it intends for 
the season of 1906 to purchase or lease its own equipment and also furnish refriger- 
ation at $2.50 per ton for the ice used in transit. For reasons stated, including the 
considertion that the Commission is without authority to fix rates for the future, an 
order should not be issued at this time. 11 I. C. C. Rep.

raes. Held : 

That under conditions now* governing the manufacture and use of complainant's outfit, 
such outfit is properly clssified by the lefejdants with the x-ray and medical or scientific 
apparatus as double first class, and is not entitled to a first class rating with dynamos,

Decided June 22, 1905. 



Freight rates to Charlotte. N. C, from New York and other northern and eastern 
points and from Louisville, Chicago, and other western points, are complained of as 
unjust, and those from the west as greater for the shorter distance to Charlotte than 
for longer distances through Charlotte to more distant localities. The freight rates to 
Charlotte are made by combining rates to Lynchburg and other Virginia cities with 
the local rates from those cities to Charlotte. Competition forces low rates to the 
Virginia citi<^s, and also compels the lew rates in force from the w^st to certain points 
east of Charlotte. If through rates to Charlottle lower than the combination of 
charges to and from the Virginia cities were established, the disadvantage now result- 
ing to Charlotte dealers in their competition with dealers at Virginia cities would 
to that extent be removed, and the carriers are recommended to consider taking such 
action, but in the absence of a showing that the present through charges are unreason- 
able the Commission is without authority to require discontinuance of the charges now 
exacted. Held, After citing decisions of the courts, that the facts presented do not 
constitute a basis for an order of relief which could be enforced, and therefre the 
complaints must be dismissed. 11 I. C. C. Rep.

Company and Yellowstone Park Association. 
Shaw & Powell, Interveners. 

Decided June 23, 1905. 

The defendant railway company publishes rates entitling passengers to transportation 
over its line from St. Paul, Minn., and other points, including eastern cities, to 
Gardiner, Mont., and return, via Gardiner, through the Yellowstone Park, a Govern- 
ment reservation, by stages of the defendant transportation company and return, and 
also, If desired, to accomodations at hotels in the Park conducted by the defendant 
association. Complainant also operates a stage line through the Yellowstone Park and 
has established permanent camps where hotel accomodations are furnished. Licensed 
camping parties are conducted through the Park by the interveners. Tickets issued by 
the defendant railroad company providing both railroad and stage transportations, and 
those also including hotel accomodations, are coupon tickets, covering the service by rail, 
by stage, and at the hotels, and the rates charged therefor are divided between the 
railway company and the stage company, or between the railway company, the stage com- 
pany and the hotel company, as the case may be, In such manner that the railway com- 
pany receives for its rail service less than Its establlsheed rate to flmrAi^^ ui4 y^ 
turn. The Joint rate and ticketing arrangement is solely between the railway company 
and the other defendants. The railway company admittedly controls the policy and oper- 
ations of the other defendants. Excellent facilities for touring the Park are fnmtahed 
by complainant. BtUSt 



BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 34 1 

1. That the defendant railway company, stage transportation company, and hotel 
association, are not competent In law to form through routes and establish Joint rates 
OS provided in section 6 of the Act to regalate commerce, and the circular or 
tariff under which the rates and tickets in question are provided cannot be regarded as 
a Joint tariff established by connecting carriers under that Act. 

2. That, upon the facts in the case, the charging of a given sum for rail transpor- 
tation to Gardiner and return only, and the acceptance of a smaller sum for the rail 
transportation when the passenger goes by stage to points in or through Yellowstone 
Park, with or without hotel accomodations therein, the service performed by the 
railway company being the same In each case, constitutes unlawful discrimination. 

3. That the arrangement between defendants under which the through tickets are 
issued and sold and the proceeds divided, and the Joint operations of defendants 
as actually carried on, constitute and effect an undue and unreasonable preference and 
advantage to the transportation company and hotel association, and subject complain- 
ant and others in like situation, as well as passengers traveling to and from Yellow- 
stone Park, to undue and unreasonable prejudice and disadvantage ; and while it is 
not decided that a carrier subject to the Act may not in some cases provide for 
transportation beyond its own line by stage or other similar conveyance, the facts shown 
in this case establish a discrimination forbidden by law. 

4. That it is the duty of the defendant railway company to so conduct and control 
Its operations relating to the transportation of passengers to Yellowstone Park as to 
afford such passengers full and equal opportunity at the terminus of its line at Gardiner 
and elsewhere to select the stage line or other agency they may desire to use for 
touring of the Park, and the places and manner of entertainment therein. 11 I. C. C. Rep.

Baltimore St Ohio Southwestern Railroad Company et al. 
Decided August 10, 1905. 

While there is much to support the view that sectional bookcases might properly be 
placed in the first class of the Official Classification, it does not appear upon the proofs 
presented that one-and-one-half times first class rates for all bookcases is an unlawful 
discrimination against the sectional variety, and the action of defendants in fixing the 
same classification and rates for sectional as for other bookcases does not exceed the 
limits of their discretion ; nor is defendants' one-and-one-half times first class rate for 
the transportation of sectional and other bookcases shown by the record to be unrea- 
sonable. Complaint dismissed without prejudice to further investigation. 11 1. C. C.

In The Matter of Freight Rates Between Memphis and Points in Arkansas. 
Decided August 15, 1905. 

Tb« Memphis Freight Bureau and the St. Louis Southwestern Railway Company sub- 
mitted certain matters to the Commission for determination and such correction of rates 
Involved as might be required under the Act to regulate commerce. Rulings of the 
Commission thereon are : 

Defendant's rates on cotton from local points in Arkansas to Memphis are not re- 
quired to be reduced, but it Is directed that the relation of cotton rates from such 
points to Memphis and St. Louis be made more uniform from particular stations. 

Defendant's rates from local points In Arkansas to Memphis on traffic other than 
cotton are not disturbed, but defendant is recommended to consider revision of Its rates 
to Memphis on live stock and cotton seed. 

Defendant's rates from Memphis to points In Arkansas, as compared with the Arkan- 
sas Commission mileage rates, including those applying from Little Rock and Pine 
Bluff, Ark., are held to constitute a discrimination for which It is doubtful whether 
defendant can be held responsible, and in that respect complainant's contention Is not 
sustained; but it Is found and decided that defendant's rates from Memphis to local 
points in Arkansas are In many instances ureasonably high and should be reduced

Decided August 15. 1905. 

The Evansvllle & Terre Haute R. Co. does not make through rates with the other 
defendants from points In Indiana to destinations south of the Ohio River, but has estab- 
lished on hay a local rate of 8 cents per hundred pounds to Evansvllle and a proportional 
of tiMi cents to Evarivllle when the shipment is billed through to a specified destination. 
The E. & T. R. refused to apply a proportional on shipments billed to Evansvllle In 
care of a southern line for points beyond, having discontinued a tariff providing therefor, 
which was effective from November 10, 1903, to July 19, 1004. The rate from Evans- 
vllle by the other defendant lines Is the same whether shipped locally from or throu£^ 
Evansvllle. Held, that it is unreasonable and unjust for the E. & T. R. to insist upon 
the blllng of these shipments to a specified destination in order to secure application of 
the lower proportional rate, while it declines to assume responsibility for such billing 
and does not post In its stations the tariffs from which the shipper can himself ascer-

able to the extent of such advances. 

2. That the preseent terminal charge for delivery of live stock at the Union Stock

Decided August 16, 1905. 

Rates in force on freight aptides from St. Louis, Mo., to Texas common points 
prior to March 15, 1903, afforded reasonable compensation to the carriers, and as they 
had been in effect for a long period, and the material advances of such rates on that 
date were made through concerted action of the carriers, Justification for the ad- 
vances should be clearly shown ; but this is a general investigation, In which no com- 
plainant is demanding relief from some particular rate, and no particular rates have 
been Investigated, and it does appear .moreover, that the financial condition of the respon- 
dents, especially those operating in Texas, is not favorable. While impressed with the 
belief that these advances in rates are Improper, the Commission does not ftt^ 
warranted in making an order condemning such advances in this proceeding. 11 L C. C.

V. 

Chicago^ Burlington & Qiincy Railroad Company. 

Decided August 16, 1905. 

A railroad company may maintain its live stock depot at a particular point, althongb 
it neither builds nor repairs nor insures the stock pens into which the stock is 
unloaded, and does not hire or control the men who do the unloading ; and whether 
the Union Stock Yards at Chicago have been, in railroad phraseology or in legal definition 
the depot of defendants s mmaterial, for they were, and still are, in fact the point to 
which the stock is transported and unloaded under the shipping contract of defendants. 

Excluding the territory covered by the reduction of 189G, which is described in ths 
findings, live-stock rates to Chicago participated in by defendants were on May 31, 1894, 
reasonable compensation for the service performed, including delivery at the Union 
Stock Yards in Chicago. At all times since that date such rates have been, and now 
are, sufficiently high" to include a delivery at the stock yards as such delivery was made 
prior to June 1, 1894. While since that time there have been advances and reduc- 
tions from some points, they have been about equal, averaging probably less than one 
cent per 100 pounds and the great majority of the rates remain the same as they were on 
May 31, 1904. These scattered reductions, as well as the advances, applied variously, 
some on cattle, some on sheep and others on hogs. No change in the rate has been 
made to offset the addition of the terminal charge in Chicago of $2.00 per car, or with 
any reference to such charge. The imposition of any such terminal charge, except in 
so far as the cost of delivery in Chicago has been increased by the trackage charge paid 
by defendant to the Stock Yards company since June 1, 1904, is unreasonable. Such 
increased cost of delivery, that is to say, such trackage charge, is fairly estimated for all 
the defendants at one dollar per car. Citing and applying Interstate Commerce Oommisaion

First: That delivery to the Union Stock Yards prior to June 1, 1894, was lnclnde6 
In the rate and was in no sense a gratuity. 

Second: That outside of the excluded territory, a terminal charge for delivery to 
the Union Stock Yards in Chicago of one dollar per car is reasonable, and defendants' 
terminal charge of two dollars per car, exacted since June 1, 1894, is unreasonable. 

Third: That the case be retained for further proceedings in the matter of repara-

Decided Au^st 16, 1906. 

This case, Inyolving the reasonableoess and Justice of freight rates from Chicago, 
St. Louis, Louisville, and other Ohio UlTer and Mississippi River points, is similar to, and 
was held to await the final disposition of, the case of Wilmington Tariff Asso. v. Cincin- 
nati, P. & y. R. Co., €t al. 9 1. C. C. Rep. 118, in wliich proceeding the Commission 
entered an order requiring correction of rates from the same points to Wilmington, 
N. C, but such order the United States Circuit Court declined to enforce. During the 
present year the rates from Chicago to Ohio River crossings have been materially reduced 
on shipments destined to southeastern points, resulting in reduction of through rates 
from Chicago to Charleston and Wilmington. Held, that in view of the decision of the 
Circuit Court in the Wilmington case, no enforceable order of relief can be predicated up- 
on the facts shown in this case and the complaint must be dismissed. 11 I. C. C. Rep. 



In the Matteb of Rates on Cobn and Cokn Pboducts Fbom Missoubi Riveb Points

Decided Au^. 16, 1905. 

Up to February 19, 1905, the rate on corn meal was 3 cents per 100 lbs. higher than 
the rate on corn for shipments from Missouri River points to points in Texas. On that 
date, the differential against corn meal was advanced so that it varied from 7 to 9% 
cents. On April 15, the differential was made 5 cents for all Texas destinations. The 
differential for hominy grits and bran remains at 3 cents. Upon consideration of the 
facts and circumstances, Held, That the differential on corn meal shipped from Missouri 
River points to Texas destinations should not be more than 3 cents above the rate 
on corn in force between the same points. 11 I. C. C. Rep.

Decided August 16, 1905. 

Defendants' rate of $1.30 per 100 lbs. on buggels in carloads from Rock Hill, S. C, 
to Tallahassee, Fla., is not shown to be unreasonable, and under the construction 
placed upon section 4, or the long and short haul clause of the statute, by the United 
States Supreme Court, competition by the A. C. L. R. Co. Justifies defendants' lower 
pate of $1.10 for the longer distance to Qulncy, Fla. 11 T. f. C. Rep. 



In the matter of rates on corn and corn products from MISSOURI river points to

The relation of rates on corn and corn products from Missouri River points to 
California terminals was for about one year after January 1. 1890, a differential of 9 



^ 



BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 345 

cents against com products. Then, for about one and a half yean, it was 9 cents 
In favor of com products. The rates were the same between July, 1802, and March, 
1895, when a differential of 5 cents against com products was established. In December, 
1897, the differential was increased to 10 cents, and in July, 1902, it was made 20 cents. 
During March, 1904, the differential was fixed at 17% cents, and in October of that 
year it was redused to 10 cents, and has since remained at that figure. Changes in the 
relation of rates on corn and corn products from Missouri River points to North Pacific 
terminals were not greatly different from those mentioned, except that in December, 
1897, the rates were made the same on corn and corn products and there is not now 
any difference unless the minimum carload for corn is the marked capacity of the car. 
In which case the rates show a differeuitial of 10 cents against corn products. 
Upon consideration of all the facts and circumstances, Held, That the present charges 
on com products and corn from Missouri River points to Pacific Coast terminals, in so 
for as the rate on corn products Is more than 5 cents above the rate on com constitute 
undue, unreasonable and unlawful discrimination against corn products and producers 
thereof at places on the Missouri River. 11 I. C. C. Rep. 



Geobge M. Spiegle & Company 

v. 
The Chesapeake & Ohio Railway Company and The Pennsylvania Railroad Company. 

Decided October 17, 1905. 

1. On complaint that defendants' rates on oak lumber in carloads to Philadelphia 
are unlawfully higher from Afton, Va., and points east thereof, to and including Gordons- 
Tille, Va., than those for the longer distances over the same line from niuuitiuu ai.d 
Basic City, Va., it appeared that a rate of 14 cents per 100 pounds applied over the 
whole territory for a period of about nine years between November 1, 1892, and August 
1, 1901. Effective competition was shown by defendants' witnesses at Basic City and 
Stauton, and complainants failed to offer any testimony. Upon the record as made in 
this case. Held : That the higher rate from the Afton-GordonsvlUe group does not 
constitute unlawful discrimination. 

2. Complainants allowed reparation for conceded erroneous charges on two carloads 
of oak lumber. 11 I. C. C. Rep. 



In the mattes of pboposed incbbasb in the minimum percentage of cabs in trains 

required to be operated with power OB TRAIN BRAKES. 

Decided November 15, 1905. 

The manifest purpose of the amended Safety Appliance Law Is that all freight cars 
shall be equipped with air-brakes, and that all brakes shall be used and operated, and 
such condition is necessary to the safety of both railway employees and the traveling 
public, besides facilitating traffic movement and resulting in the handling of traffic 
with greater economy. Increasing the minimum percentage of air-braked oars in trains 
from 50 to 70 per cent would result in the earlier operation of trains fully equipped 
with air-brakes and accelerate the removal from service of old and comparatively unsafe 
cars now unequipped with that appliance ; but under the present public demand the use 
of every available car is required to move the unusual volume of traffic now offered and 
ordering such increased percentage into Immediate effect would hamper railway opera- 
tions and improse several hardships upon shippers and the general public. After due. 
notice and full hearing, Held: That the minimum percentage of inr-braked freight cars 
in trains on railroads used in interstate commerce shall stand increased to 75 per cent 
on and after August 1, 1906. 11 I. C. C. Rep.

arises from Its authority oyer State commerce and does not constitute any limitalton 
upon the exclusiye poorer of congress to regulate Interstate commerce. 

The enactment by congress In section three of the Act to regulate commerce that 
the carriers affected thereby shall not subject persons, localities or descriptions of trifflc 
to undue prejudice or unreasonable disadvantage, or give any undue or unreasonable 
preferences or advantage to persons, localities or kinds of traffic in any respect whatso* 
ever applies to discrimination in facilities or instrumentalities of shipment or carriage, 
and ^hlle the Commission has no authority to order a carrier to put in sidetrack 
connections, or to prescribe the terms of conditions relating to the construction of such 
connections, its Jurisdiction does extend to any case of wrongful prejudice resulting 
from discrimination in the provision of such facilities or instrumental Ites of shipment 
or carriage, including sidetrack connections. 

Carriers must conduct and manage their business under the requirements and prohi- 
bitions of the regulating statute, and undue discriminations cannot be Justlgfied by 
the fact of long-standing agreements with favored mine operators and other shippers, 
nor Is It a defense to the charge of discrimination that the facilities provided the favored 
persons may be withdrawn at the will of the one who grants them. , 

Defendant declines to permit a sidetrack connection between Its line and a switch 
or sidetrack to complainant's coal, mine in the Fairmont District of West Virginia for 
the purpose of receiving interstate shipments of coal from its mine, although it has 
provided and maintains sidetrack connections for other mines in that district from which 
large quantities of coal are shipped to interstate destinations. Defendant controK«, 
through ownership of capital stock, large coal mining enterprises in the Fairmont 
District which, during the year 1904, shipped more than one half the tonnage from that 
district. Complainant has purchased the right of way for the sidetrack and the 
physfcal conditions pertaining to the proposed connection are at least as favorable as 
those pertaining to connections already made for other mines in that coal field. It is 
found generally that as between complainant's and the favored mines similarity of 
situation exists in essential respects. Under such discrimination complainant Is unable 
to make Interstate shipments of coal from its mine, and the defendant, by continuing 
Its policy of denying these facilities to applying owners of coal lands, may pracn«.««« • 
control in its own interest all the undeveloped coal in this field, as well as derive greater 
profits from its large holdings in mines already developed in that section. Held : That 
the discrimination is not only wrongful as between complainant and other more favored 
shippers, but amounts to undue and unreasonable preference by defendant of itself, and 
that order forbidding further violation of section three of the statute should issue 
accordingly. 11 I. C. C. Rep.

Decided November 29, 1905. 

Defendant's passenger fare from Fernandlna, Fla., to Savannah. Ga.,* 124 miles la 
$5.00, or about 4 cents per mile. A rate of 3 cents per mile is fixed by state authority 
for fares within the states of Florida and Georgia. Defendant's line between Savannah 
and Fernandlna or Jacksonville is more expensive to maintain than other part of its 
system. The freight traffic is light and the local passenger traffic Insignificant. A 
reduction of this interstate passenger fare would not contribute to development of the 
section or Increase materially the passenger business of the line. Reducing the fare 
to three cents per mile \^^uld render the earnings of this part of the system less than 
the average upon the whole system and less than the average of other roads in that 
part of the country. 

Held: 1. That ordinarily the through Interstate passenger fare should not exceed 
the sum of local fares, but there is no specific requirement in the regulating statute to 
that effect, and the only question for determination is whether the fare complained of 
Is unreasonable. 2. That upon all the circumstances of the case the fare In question 
can not be deeded excessive and the complaint must be dismissed. 11 I. C. C. Rep.

Defendants charge for passenger fare from Ellenton, S. C, to Augusta, Ga., 22 
miles, Is 80 cents, and from Jackson, S. C, to Augusta, 15 miles, Is 60 cents, and these 
fares ase alleged to be unreasonable. The local passenger fares in South Carolina and 
Oeorgla are controlled by a maximum of three cents per mile fixed by state authority. 
The distance covered between the points mentioned is via the C. & N. W. Ry., tre other 
defendant, the A. C. L. R. Co. having certain trackage rights over part of the other 
line. All fares collected by the A. C. L. R. R. Co. for transportation between Ellenton or 
Jackson and Augusta are turned over th the C. & W. C. Ry. Co. The financial condition 
of the C. & W. C. Ry. Co. is poor. The country along the line if this road, though 
long settled, is sparsely inhabited and the trafllc is light. Held: 

1. That the rates fixed by the State Commissions of South Carolina and Georgia 
are presumptively reasonable, but such presumption is not conclusive and the railroad 
companies are entitled to show the contrary in a case involving the rates on Interstate 
traffic. 

2. That a railroad company is entitled to a fair return upon the value of that 
which It employs for the public convenience, and that in view of all the facts in this 
case, and previous decisions of the Commission cited, it Is not apparent that the Inted- 
state passenger rates complained of are unreasonable. 11 I. C. C. Rep.

Complainant shipped a carload of hay from Summit,* O., to Lenoir, N. C. Com- 
plainant claims that shipping instructions were given to route the car via "Strasburg 
Junction and Souhem Railway." The defendant initial carrier denies this and asserts 
that instructions were given to route via "Cincinnati and Southern Railway,*' the 
route actually used. The rate was less via Strasburg than via Cincinnati. The com- 
plainant was unable to prove definitely the giving of instructions to route via Stras- 
burg,' but complainant and defendant both agree that shipping instructions were given. 
Held: 

1. That if the carrier had, contrary to positive instructions from the shipper, routed 
the car by an indirect and expensive line instead of the direct and cheaper route, 
or had without any instructions sent the car by the longer route, so as to burden 
the shipper with needless expense, such action would be prima facie unjust and 
unreasonable, and without justification would constitute fair basis for an order of 
reparation. 

2. That the giving of Instructions relieves the carrier from any obligation to for- 
ward by the cheaper route, and in this case, where the testimony does not Indicate 
what instructions were actually given, an order in favor of the complaining shipper 
can not be Issued. 11 I. C. C. Rep.

Blgnlng hay from that point at a charge less than the established local rate Is of 
substantial value to dealers In that citj. Held: 

1. The fact that through rates arc less than the sum of In and out rates is not 
of Itself a valid ground of objection, nor is it unla^ul for defendants to maintain 
reconsignment rates which are higher in some cases than their proportions of through 
rates. 

1. The fact that the reconsignment rate U sometimes the same as the proportion 
of the through rate does not warrant an inference of illegal conduct or support a 
charge of unjust discrimination. 11 I. C. C. Rep.

Decided December 16, 1905. 

Upon two carloads of hay shipped about May 8, 1802, from Pataskala, O., one to 
Wilmington, N. C, and the other to Greenville, K. C, it appears that the Wilming- 
ton shipment was overcharged 1 cent per 100 pounds, and that on the Greenville 
shipment the rate under published tariffs should have been 30 cents per 100 pounds, 
instead of a higher rate claimed for the defense to have been 30 ^ cents and by the 
complainant to have been 36 cents, the proof not indicating definitely what was actually 
charged. Held: That the findings show a basis for adjustment and refund which 
should be made, and that the case be held open for further proof and order if that 
course should become necessary. 

The circumstances and conditions govemipg hay traffic from Columbus and Patas- 
knla, O., appear to have been substantially dissimilar at a time when a lower rate 
from Columbus than from Pataskala to Greenville and Wilmington was in force, and 
complainant's demand for reparation based upon the rate then in force from Colnm* 
bus is not sustained. 11 I. C. C. Rep. 



GeOBQE J. KiNDEL 
V. 

Boston & Albany Railboad Company et al. 
Decided December 28, 1005. 

1. The fact that a carload rating has been established on cotton-piece goods from 
the east to Pacific coast points because of water competition, and the fact that duck 
and denims have been given carload rates to Salt Lake City and Denver to encourage 
manufacturing industries at those points, while elsewhere throughout the country the 
rate on cotton-piece goods is the same for any quantity, do not indicate that the action 
of defendants in denying a carload rating on tickings, drills and sheetings to Denver 
is unlawful. 

2. Defendants' rates per hundred pounds on cotton-piece goods in less than carloads 
from New York Boston and other eastern points are $2.24 to Denver and $1.50 to San 
Francisco. The charge to Denver is a combination of rates from the point of ship- 
ment to the Mississippi River. Mississippi River to Missouri River, and Missouri River 
to Denver. From New York to Chicago, from Chcago to Denver, and from St. Louis 
to Denver for a long period of years cotton-piece goods have been given rates sub- 
stantiully below the rates on first class articles, and throughout the United States 
greater or less differentials on col ton-piece goods uuder first class have been main- 
tained with one notable exception, namely, from Missouri River points to Denver. 
Transcontinental rates from eastern points to San Francisco are made in competition 
with water rates, and are in no sense a measure of the value of the service ; but 
that situation does not Justify the carriage of goods to San Francisco at a loss. 
thereby placing additional burdens on other traffic. The rate of $1.50 on cotton-piece 
goods from the east to San Francisco, about 3400 miles, is assumed to cover the 



BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 349 

actual cost of the service, and that rate for the 1400 to 1600 miles less distant to 
Denver, and saving the haul of that distance over mountain ranges where fael and 
labor are counted more expensive, is found to be reasonable for the transportation 
from New York, Boston and other eastern points to Denver. Under the present com- 
bination rate to Denver no reduction from local charges is made on account of the 
through haul of 2000 miles. Such application of combined local charges to a long 
distance shipment places a wrongful burden upon the shipper. The exaction of first 
class rates on cotton-piece goods between Missouri River points and Denver in view 
of the long-prevailing differentials in other parts of the country and other existing 
conditions is unjust and unreasonable. 

Hcldy That the result of the excessive rate on cotton-piece goods between the 
Missouri River and Denver and the application of full locals in making up the through 
combination rate from New York, Boston and other eastern points taking the same 
rates to Denver is to make the through rate excessive, and that such through rate 
to Denver to be reasonable should not excess |1.60 per hundred pounds. 11 I. C. C. Rep^
