On complaint of the , Galveston Chamber of Commerce ; the railroad commission on August 9, 1902, Issued a circular in effect that persons engaged in handling cotton at Galveston are afforded the same facilities and assured equal freight charges as persons engaged In the same business In Houston and New Orleans. At a hearing by the commission held September 16, 1902, it was ordered that 6 cents per 100 pounds be added to the Houston rates, provided the rates on cotton to Galveston for local delivery shall be 2 cents less per 100 pounds than for shlpslde delivery. This subject was reopened yesterday by the commission and was the subject considered first at the hearing. Secretary E. R. McLean read letters from the Milam County Oil company of Cameron and some other business or ganizations located In the interior of the state, complaining of the differential rate on cotton as applied to rates between Houston - and Galveston, operating to the disadvantage of the last named place. Manager J. H.Johnson. The commission proceeded to take testimony. Mr. J. H. Johnson, manager of the Galveston, freight bureau, was placed on the stand. The witness was examined by Ed F. Harris, attorney of Galveston." Mr. Johnson's testimony assumed a wide range, covering in detail ocean and steamship freight rates from New York and other eastern points to Galveston and from Galves ton to all points east; also railroad rates over all lines In and out of Gal veston. When asked why the Central, Galveston, Harrlsburg and San Antonio, Southern Pacific and other railroads discriminated against Galveston and in favor of Houston, the witness answered: Well, I do not know, unless it Is on account of local attachments. These roads have their headquarters in Houston, are largely interested In Houston financially, attached to the place socially and hence their partiality in arranging a schedule of rates. Galveston is at a great disadvantage as agalfist not only Houston, but Beaumont, Orange and other places. Galveston's Disadvantage. The witness went on to show that Galveston was at a still greater disad vantage for the reason that while Galveston's rates from New York, Raleigh and other Atlantic seaports were rea sonable and fair, still when the freight was received from these places the outgoing rate over railroads to Interior points, even to common points, placed her at a disadvantage as compared with Houston on account of this outgoing differential. The water transportation at Galveston If simply paralyzed by reason of thisdiscrimination. Without a change irr the Galveston rates the Texas seaport will be of no advantage to Hempstead, Navasota, Brenham and other Interior places. Witness said: "As compared with Houston, briefly stated, Galveston .s always on an equality or at. a disadvantage. Galveston is not only at a disadvantage with Houston, but Beau mont and Shreveport. All I have rep resented is from a carefully compiled and carefully analyzed statement by three wholesale merchants of Galves ton of receipts of freights and shipments for, one week." Mr. Johnson read letters from firms proposing to establish sailing and steamship lines Into Galveston from numerous Atlantic seaports if conditions applying to outgoing freight could be remedies. Galveston has al ways been at a serious disadvantage by reason of being handicapped by the railroads trying to get all the freight. Mr. Johnson testified that the remedy for all this was to make Galveston a base rating point for the entire state, Just as St. Louis Is for the state of Missouri. Galveston for Galveston. Mr. Frank Andrews cross examined the witness and succeeded In bringing out the fact that Galveston desired the abolishment of the differential when It was to the Interest of that city to have It abollnhed, and wanted it applied when it was to Galveston' interest to have It applied. The fact was also brought out that Galveston wanted the differential applied until maximum territory was reached, and men tna mileage basis applied. As to a mileage basis, Gulveston desired it, as nothing in the way of manufactured products originated In the place. Wants Lower Rate. At the afternoon session the cross examination of Mr. Johnson was resumed. Mr. Andrews asked witness If in his opinion Galveston and Houston should have a lower rato than Fort Worth and Dallas. s He Rnswered yes, and assigned us a reason that Galveston and Houston had the advantage of rate down the Mississippi river as well as the Atlantic seaboard. . Mr. Anderson said: "Of course, you have made your statement entirely from your standpoint, or from a Galveston point of view." "I have not," Mr. Johnson replied, "hut have made them from the point of view of the common good as applied to all." "How much of this differential on ... ciui mupyeu wui , based on carload lots, and how much based on less," Mr. Anarews aKeu. . "All that is found on the list I presented, which embraces about all we handle." Mr. Andrews referred to the statement made by the witness in the forenoon that Galveston would get other steamship lines but for the action of railroads, and asked how many steamship lines Galveston had before the soutnern Racine built mere. "Only one." "Why did you not have others?" "Because the railroad followed them up.". "Of course, you Galveston people regret the road built to the place." "We do not." "Is not this differential," Mr. Andrews asked, "more a difference between railroads than places?" Mr. Johnson answered that he simply stated a condition without attempting to fix the responsibility. W. P. Morrissey. W. P. Morrissey, traffic manager for Win. Parr & Co. steamship line, was next placed on the stand. Mr. Parr stated that the rates out of Galveston were far from satisfactory, and read a carefully prepared statement giving the mileage rate between numerous other state and interstate points, showing them to be less than the maximum rate between Galveston and other Texas points. The rate on cement " from Galveston to Houston is now fixed by the commission at 7 1-2 cents, whereas it was formerly 5. Mr. Morrissey continued his testimony at some length covering the whole range of cement shipments, and the rates charged on this class of freight, and claimed the differential operated to the disadvantage of Galveston. E. W. Sewell. E. W. Sewell of Houston, of the firm of Carson & Sewell, was placed on the stand. The witness stated that he had been In business In Houston thirty years, and that he bought the bulk of his flour in Galveston, and that on account of the rate out of Houston he had been forced to establish branch houses In Navasota and Bryan. Mr. Johnson, cross examining the witness, brought out the fact that 76 or 80 per. cent of all the goods he handled as a wholesale grocer came from the Atlantic seaboard. Commissioner Mayfield asked the witness from what town, either within or without Texas, he encountered the strongest competition. He answered St Louis, and that this competition was encountered In every portion of the territory covered by the transactions of his house. . Louis Schneider. Louis Schneider of Galveston was next placed on the stand and showed by his testimony how Galveston suffered by the present differential and the rates of outgoing freight A. S. Cleveland. A. S. Cleveland of Houston was call ed to the stand. Witness stated that his firm had been in business forty years, and proceeded to give rates in and out of Houston by both water and rail and the facilities for handling freight in that place. W. H. Kirkland. W. H. Kirkland occupied the stand and gave his views and experience in shipping and the rates ' applied and the effect of the differential in that place. . 1 .1-1. I hompson. T. H. Thompson of Houston took' the stand and explained the effect of the differential in the shipments of flour. P. H. McNemer. P. H. McNemer testified that he had some Information on the effect of the differential on inbound and outbound movement of freight in that city. Mr. McNemer stated that Galveston under the present freight , schedule had the advantage of Houston on shipments both in and but of these cities. The rate on roasted coffee from New Or leans is 8 cents less to Galveston than to Houston. , The commission adjourned to 10 o'clock today. Will Be Held In June.

The worm is identical in shape and size with the familiar green, horned tobacco or tomato worm, but in color it differs being black, brown and stiped. Some times a green one is seen, but the great majority are either black, brown or striped and in size rom an inch and a half to two and a half inches in length. ' i . These worms ' have' appeared In countless numbers and are attacking all growing crops, cotton included. It is not a cotton plant worm and does not attack cotton fields until it has devoured everything else ?, green within reach, weeds included; but entire fields of cotton in this section have been totally ruined by the pest .They seem to be a product of the unusual wet season and are rapidly increasing in numbers.
