The fr< irrht rates of the ration hare
be*-n built up along lines of least re- j
jjpMaar*. The merchant, the manu-
facturer, the miner, the miller, the j
lumberman ami the cattleman have
p tad ti ;r trnillc bureaus thoroughly
organized and In many instances they
have pursued the railroad without
mercy and with the power of organ- 1
fztd tonnage they have hammered the ]
life out of the rates and with uure-
Btialinvl grei d they have beaten the j
vlials out of our transportation system
and since we have had railroad com- j
missions, these interest.*, with skill
and cunning, are represented at every 1

ploy counsel to develop his side of
I tits ease and, as a result, the products
of the plow bea r an unequal burden
rf the freight expo;:: >. A glance at
t:ip freight trrifl's abundantly proves
this assertion. Cotton, the lr-ading
agricultural product r the South, a!
ready bears the highest freight rate of
any necessary commodity in com-
merce, and the rate on agricultural
products as a whole is out of pro-
portion with that of the products of
the factory and the mine.
We offer no schedule < f rates, but
hope the commission will be able to
give the railroad buc-h an increase in
rates as is n < ssary without levying
a further toll upon the products 01
the plow. The instance seems to pre-
si ti', an opportunity ;o the Railroad
Commissions to eq-alize the rates us
between agricultural and other classes
of freight without disturbing the rates
on staple farm products.
What la a Fair Rate?
We do not know what constitutes a
basis for rate making and have never
heard of anyone who did claim to
know much about ;t, but if the pro3-
• parity of the farm is a factor to be
' considered and the railroad commis-
I sion concludes that an increase in
rate- is ne essary, we would prefer
that it eonie to us through articles of
consumption on their journey from
ihe factory to the farm. We would,
m for example, prefer that the r;re on
nogs' remain as at present and the I
rate on meat bear the increase, for
any farmer can then avoid the burden
by raising his own meat, and a farm-
er who will not try to raise his «wn
meat ought to be penalized. We
think the rate on coal and brick can
much better bear an increase than
the rate on cotton and flour. We
would prefer that the rate on plows
remai.. the same, and machinery,
piinos and such artie • , as the pi, r-
er farmer r nnot hope to possess bear
the burden .' increase.
The Increase in rates should be so
arranged that the farmer who lives
at borne will boar no part of the bur
den. but let the farmer who boards
in other state* and countries and
who feed* his stock in foreign lands
»>•» the price at his folly.
