Sides Betas Heard by tbu Inter State Commerce An Ap peal to the BepubllcKn Press to Make a Loudl Call oS the Senate in Behalf of the National Election Do ings in cial Notes WAsnrjfGTOX CITY July weeks figo the i nterstate commerce commission ers made a trip through the west investi gating the cause of the financial depres sion among the farmers and endeavoring to ascertain the reason for the low prices of agricultural produce They made a re port in which the theory was advanced that the trouble was due to high freights to the seaboard caused by certain provis ions of the interstate commerce law Thi theory was not a new one It was sug gested by Senator Paddock some months ago and it was at his instance that the in vestigation was made The subject has been extensively discussed in the western newspapers and although there was a dif ference of opinion the weight of editorial testimony was in favor of the position taken by the senator and afterward by the commissioners The Arguments of the Railways The latter sent their report to congress in reply to a resolution ofinquiry but did not stop there They called upon the trunk lines to show cause why the through rates from Omaha to Chicago to tidewater should not be reduced and fixed a day to hear arguments on the subject Mr Aldace F Walker the president of the Presidents association appeared for the western roads exSecretary Bristow for the Baltimore and Ohio and other em inent counsel represented other railroads submitting printed arguments against the proposition and maintaining that the freight rates had nothing to do with the profits of the farmerj They argued that the prices he for his produce were regulated entirely hjy the law of supply and demand and that even if he could get his crops to market for nothing they would sell for no more than now A re duction in freights they said would re sult in a corresponding reduction in the prices paid by the consumers but the producers would derive no benefit from it Further they said the proposed re duction would mean the loss of millions by the railways Other Side of the Question The railway companies having presented their arguments the commission next en gaged in hearing arguments from persons who are of opinion that the proposed re ductions and even greater ones should be ordered When the commission met yes terday there were present the following persons who are interested in the matter G M Lnmbertson Lincoln Neb repre senting the state and the state Farmers alliance H F Dousman a member oi the Chicago board of trade George T Anthony and James Humphrey Kansas railroad commissioners and Spencer F Smith railroad commissioner of Iowa Mr Dousman made the opening argu ment The position of these geiltternen was that it was the freight that caused the farmer to sell his corn so low as that had to be taken out of the price at Chi cago and New Figures were pre sented to prove this position THE NATIONAL ELECTION BILL The Washington Park Kaces

stating that the committee has in formation that a concerted effort Is mak ing to manufacture sentiment adverse to the bill the letter proceeds It is believed that a favorable expression of opinion at this juncture from the Republican press all along the line would be as forcible as timely and would exert a wholesome in fluence and inspire legislators to the car rying out of the partys pledge The house has performed its part of the work to which the party was pledged Will you not do your duty in urging that the sen ate shall respond promptly by the passage of he measure which the house deems
