10 THE RAILWAY WORLD Officials Talk of Bupreme Court Decision and Jails. WILL BENEFIT RAILROADS Warner Car to Supplant Pullman on the Omaha Line New Lake and Rail Rate. Chicago railroad official, wore a trouble! look yesterday. The were all thinking of the Supreme Court decision in tbe Brown case, and ita possible effecta. The dec li Ion waa looked at In rariout Ilgbti hy tbe railroad men. Some aaw nothing but Inea and Jail ahead of them, other appeared pleased, and aaid they were glad the commission bad at lat been clothed with sufficient authority to demonstrate It ability or inability to put an end to discrimination and cut rate. It was tbe general cpinion that the decision will baTe tbe effect of demonttrating or rather finding out jut which road deelre to maintain tbe tame rate to all shippers and wbich road do net. Id voicing their opinions yesterday the officers of tbe "good" linos could easily be picked from those of the rate-cutters. Tbe repreaeBtatlTef of previous guilty line were, without an exception, open in their declaration that the Supreme Court bad erred; tbey ail ihowed a disposition to evade tbe searchlight. On tbe other hand official of the well-meaning road a. those that do not cut rate unless they are forced to by competition, asserted that tbe decision was a Just one. and would tend to protect the railroads as well as the shippers. "I am not disappointed In the decision." said General Traffic Manager Bird of the Chicago. Milwaukee and St. Paul. "The greatest evils railroads have to contend with Is the rut-rate, secret, of course, competition of roads that can get business do other way. We could earn more money and there woulJ be less trouble all around were all roads to conduct their business open and above boari. "I believe that more than nine-tenths of the railroad companies of tbe country want to deal fairly with tbe public, and make the aame rates to all shippers. The roads that do not want to work fairly are those inferior vstems that could not pay operating expense if they did not hold out Inducements in th way of concessions from tariffs, rebates cn shipments, and other underhand baits. "As I understand the decision, when a railroad officer la summoned before the commission be must tell tbe truth, go to Jail for contempt, or commit perjury, and take chances on being found out. The result Is that be will tell tbe truth. Tbe witness will tell all be knows, and that meana that no shipper or railroad company will be safe in violating tbe law by giving secret cut rates or other discriminating concession." .Mr Bird voiced the opinion of most of the traffic officers of the other big roads running west from Chicago. Waal the Law Chaaged. Railroad officers generally are vigorous In their denunciation of the law as it now stands, which makes individual officials instead of the corporation liable for secret rai rutting. Anybody who is at all conversant with railway affair know that freight officers would not cut a rate if they were to receive orders from the executive bead of the company not to do so. But under tbe present law the latter shuts his eyes and allow his subordinates to use whatever mean tbey seo fit to capture business; the president, knowing that be Individually, or his corporation, cannot be. punlabed If tbe rate cutting is discovered. -Nor can these subordinates be persuaded to, testify agalnat an official holding an equal position on a competing line. But were the corporation Instead of tbe Individual liable, no officer would hesitate to testify against another road as a corporation. A prominent general freight agent of a Western line aaid yesterday that if the corporations instead of the officers were liable be would at once bring case of rate cutting against two or three of his competitor. An amendment to the Interstate commerce laws providing for tbe liability of railroad corporations instead of their Individual officer 1 now before Congress. POO LUG AGREEMENT ADOPTED. It Affects All Texas Baalaeaa (rasa Sea-hoard Xarth and Xerthwest. New Tork. March 24. Tbe representatives of the various lines in the Southwestern Traffic Association, held a conference at the Windsor Hotel today for tbe purpose of voting on tbe supplementary agreement, wbicb provides for a pooling of all Texas business from the seaboard North and Northwest. Tbe resolution waa adopted. Voder the new agreement tbe association it virtually reorgan-lsed. although tbe old agreement stands. It I understood that tbe aew agreement provides for a money pool. This is denied, however, by tbe members of tbe association. They claim that It will be strictly a president agreement, and It Is expected that under it rate cutting among Southwestern lines will be entirely removed. Tbe organisation will be governed by a board of control of three members, of wbicb Chairman Day will be chief member. A penalty forfeit of 15.000 Is provided In tbe new contract. and the measure follows tbe Joint Traffic Association in many particulars. The recent ruling of th board of traffic manager of tbe Joint Traffic Association ia regard to elevator transfer charge caused considerable dissatisfaction among tb lines Interested. There was a meeting today af tbe offices of tbe Grand Trunk line In thi elty. attended by General Freight Agent Brown of tbe Chicago and Grand Trunk, Freight Traffic Manager Mitchell and Assist ant General Freight Agent Hand of tbe Michigan.
