THE CAR SJKVK K I!l UKAI. Wlml Nome ot Our Heavy Shippers TIHnU of tbe Jicw Rule. The Niles Tool Works.—"We think that the car service bureau is a good thing. It keeps our tracks clearer than formerly and benefits both the lailroad c inipany and us. If it had gone into ellect a few weeks ago it would have put us in the hole considerably. We received 65 car loads of pig iron and it would have been simply impossible for us to have unloaded them in time to avoid being charged by tho company. As it is now, though, we are not receiving such large shipments, we can unload the cars in the specified time." The Gordon Maxwell Co,—"We have a good opinion of tho car service bureau. It has given us no trouble of any kind whatever. Bender Bros.-—The bureau has put to considerable inconvenience. M. Diugfelder it Co.—" We much opposed to the car service bureau. W T o often receive large shipments of lumber and it is simply impossible for us to unload the cars within forty-eight hours unless we would put on a large force of men, thereby taking them from their other work. The time should bo lengthened considerably." Charles Sohngen it Co.—"The new system is giving us very much trouble. The time is too short." Tho George K. Shaffer Kleviitor Co.— "We have as yet had no experience under the new order." Ritchie it Dyer Co.—"We think that forty-eight hours is sufficient time and is no tatall unreasonable. Sometimes it gives us some inconvenience and again it helps us somewhat." Sohn it Rentschler.—"We aro oblig to abide by the car service rules. The time allowed for the unloading of freight is not too short."" The Hooveu Owens it Rentschler Co.— •We have had no experience and don't | wan t to express our opinion. The Cincinnati Brewim; Co.—"The time .,| for the unloading of the cars should be j extended at least two days. The only : i ro uble that wo have is in regard to our barley. time." ' j j j j | j j \ j -I i ; j j It hustles us to unload it on The Louis Snider's Suns' Co.—"We hive had uo trouble." Carr it Browu.—"As ,vo have received no very largo shipments lately wo can not complain." Loos ,t Allstattor Co.—"Had no trouble," Bentel it Margcdant.—"No trouble." Variety Iron Works. "The time for unloading is altogether loo short. These people who do not complain are the ones who dou't receive large freight shipments. We find it tho next thing to an impossibility to unload our cars in the forty-eight hours given us. The time should be extended by all means." Jos. Straub it Hon.—"Wo are of the opinion that tho time for unloading should bo extended to take in four or live days anyhow. It is giving us some little trouble." Wm. Thompson.—"My opinion is that wo ought to liavo forty-eight hours' time to unload our freight." August liciiuingliofon.—The l.s-hoiir car service will not woikvcry we.Il for coal dealers hero. If we could have four days to unload it would l>o all right, but forty-eight hours is loo short a lime. Wo sometimes liavo six cars of coal on track of dilloront kinds and it in impossible to unload them within the limit; besides coul lirnnks up nnd slacks very much by handling it often. If we no not get four days' lime, I will secure a lot on the canal, HO as to got river coal by boals. I pnid for Ihe last year to tlio C., 11. ,V.
