W. Failed to Enter a Protest; City Must Get Busy Seattle and the Northwest, to revise the, old saying, counted their tourists before they were hatched! The new rates removing the differential of $17.50, which operated in favor of Southern California and against the Northwest, WILL NOT GO 4NT©£FFECT ON FEBRUARY 15. The Interstate Commerce Commission at Washing* ton, D. C., today modified its decision to that effect. The Southern Pacific won its motion for postponement to April 2. IT WON BECAUSE THE NORTHWEST FAILED TO HAVE A REPRESENTATIVE AT WASHINGTON, D.C..TO WATCH EVERY MOVE AND TURN IN THE CASE. No one contested the railroad'* motion! Just what The Star feared and warned. against has come to pass. While the Chamber of Commerce hemmed and hawed aboaf having "no money for this purpose," and before The Star could raise the necessary money thru subscription to hire Attorney Reyn* olds to handle the case, the first blow fell! And the railway has several other moves up its sleeves. The discrimination against the Northwest won't be removed on April 2, either, unless the Northwest—Seattle particularly—gets busy. The Southern Pacific railway, besides securing a postpone-* ment, ALSO HAS A PETITION BEFORE THE COMMISSION TO REOPEN THE WHOLE CASE. If the commission decides to reopen the case, the old rates will continue pending the final decision, which may not come at all thia year. The commission today ruled that the railway may file its brief in support of the petition any time up to January 30, and tho Northwest is ordered to reply by February 23. SEATTLE MUST GET BUSY! IT IS NOW MORE APPARENT THAN EVER THAT THE NORTHWEST MUST HAVE CHARLES A. REYNOLDS, FORMER STATE PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSIONER, WHO WON THE FIRST DECISION FOR US, STAY ON THE JOB TO THE FINISH. The legislature should appropriate the $10,000 recommended by the state public service commission for this purpose! It should do it at once. But you can never depend on the lawmakers at Olympia. Seattle business men cannot afford the risk. Make doubly sura by subscribing the necessary money— by subscribing $5,000, at any rate. If the legislature comes thru, as it should, for it interests the whole state, then the money can be returned. If not, it will be money well spent.
