(Chicago Inter-Ocean i
The "community of financial inter-
est" plan has not yet revolutionized
the railway world. Apparently little
progress has been made toward the ac-
complishment of its chief object the
abolition cf secret rate competition
by the railways.
Three Important meetings recently
of the highest officials ot eastern and
western railroads established the fact
that secret concessions In rates have
been made generally to the biggest
shippers and that many roads have
entered into contracts to transport
freight at cut rates until Dec. 31 nexL
The easern railroad officials at a
meeting In New York on July 12 de-
cided Umt these contracts made In
violation of the Interstate-commerce
law should bo carried out with tho
understanding that no moro cut rnto
contracts should bo mndo nnd that
all the roads should bo pormlttod
to meet "openly or by private settle-
ment" the lowost rate that any road
had contracted o ranko. All the cut
rate contracts made by linos In the
Central Frolgh association were con-
fidentially filed with the chairman of
the association. From these contracts
ht made a compilation of the lowest
rates offered on all classes of freight
suppressing the names of tho shippers
with whom tho various roads had
made contracts for lower rates than
ara glvon to tho public generally.
In the territory botwoen Chicago
and tho Missouri river secret rate cut
ting wns practiced to such an extent
tha on July 5 last tho Santa Fe sys-
torn announced that on July 15 It
would put Into effect a schedule ot
rates making a reduction of from 20
to 00 per cent on tho varloub classes
That threat of an open rate war
Immediately caused a decline In tho
value of stocks ot tho western rail-
roads. Without delay orders were Is-
sued by those forming the "commun-
ity of financial interest" to the execu-
tive officers of the railroads to restore
rates to a normal basis and keep them
there. The executlyo offlcors met here
and after a conference of sevoral days
reachod an agreement on July 12 to
carry no freight at less than regular
Wunln a week soveral lines ro
ported that it would be ixipossiblo for
thorn to cancel all cut rates on July
25 and tho time for nil Unas to do so
was extended by agreemqnt until Au-
gust $. Lnat Friday the executive of-
floors nuttln ji- hero and to the dis-
may of many ot them some of the
lines reported that It would bo Im-
possible far them to abrogate reduced
rate contrnots with certain shippers
extending to Deo. 31 next.
In the face of specific orders from
Wall street that freight rates must be
advanced nnd maintained the execu-
tive officers could only adopt a res-
olution to the effecL Knowing how-
ever the practical impossibility of
carrying It out they added to the reso-
lution a clause to the effect that If any
road found itself compelled "to pro-
tect its rates" those rates should bo
made known to nil lines for the bene-
fit of their reepectivo patrons.
Summed up the facts are that the
"community ot financial Interest" plan
will probably prevent any moro opon
rate wars but for tho romalndor of
this year at least secret concessions
in rates wil lee made by ail the rail-
roads to tho heaviest shippers of the
The interstate-commerce law seams
no longer to hnvo any torrors for traf-
fic officials or big shippers. A majori
ty of the managers of railways declare
that rnto discrimination In favor of
tLo largest shippers will continue un-
til a law Is paRsod ouRbllng railways
to pool their profit and dlvldo thom
according to agreed percentages. This
is also the opinion of Chairman Knapp
and of other mombcrs ot tho inter
state-commerce commission but they
insist that to guard ugainnt exces
sive froight rates railway profit pool
ing should bo under tho supervision of
a commission appointed by tho government
for the health.
