A convention 1.'-; UOW being held in Salt Lake ~it.~ for the purpose of conlbating unfair discrimination be- tween coast cities and inland towns in railroad rates. Some years ago the railroads fixed a rate for the western commerce, taking the rate to coast eitie~ qs a basis. For instance, they established a tale from New York to Seattle, using Seattle as a distribut-- ing minl: lllen freight rates to Spo- kane w(mhl be tile New York-Seattle rate plu~ the rate from Seattle to Spokane. This gave the~coast cities an advantage over the iulaud cities iria~mucb as the Seattle merchani had :~ ~n,aller freight rate to reckon with iv fixing his prices than the Spokane laerchant had. Conse- quently Seattle merchants could of- fer their commodities at a less price than could the Spokane merchants. Spokane. after years of hard ef- fort, succeeded in obtaining a read- justment of freight rates so that com- modities brought here or sent front here would not I)e handicapped by a grettter rate than the commodities ot competitors on the coast. Now the railroads are trying to se- cure a ree~tablishmen~ of Ihe former schedule, against which efforts in.- land towns and cities are protest{ng. The chambcr of commerce of Palouse drafted resolutions last week to be presented to the interstate commerce commission, protesting ngainsl the proposed rates. These resolutions were sent to the Spokane chamber nf commerce and they have presented them. with others, lO the Salt Lake City convention. The convention Monday night sent a telegram to the interstate commerce emnmission asking that if the car- riers make application, as they have indicated, to reduce transcontinental rates without corresponding read- justments to interstate points, that hearings be held before members of the commission at Salt Lake, Spo- kane. Helena, Mont.: Baker City, Ore.: Reno. Nev.: Phoenix. Ariz., and San Bernardlno. Cal. The convention also adopted a res- olution directed to Congress calling for the repeal of section 15-A of the transportation act calling for the fix- ture of rates to yield the carrters 5 to 6 per cent on their aggregate val- ues. The resolution alleges that this statute "has resulted tn the levying of rates which have stifled commerce and prevented the free movement of compettition of commoditie~." Protest was registered against the assumption of Jurisdiction by the in- terstate commerce commission over matters relating to Interstate rates. Mr. McCornack, whose judgment el crop conditions in the Palouse ls based on 21 years spent in Pa- louse, and a close observing of condi- tions since leaving here. stated to a Republic representative that the crop prospects are as fine as he ha,~ ever r, een at this season of the year, ttl- !though there is, of course, always a chance for continued heat and hot; winds to cut the yield somewhat late in June or early in July, With a good yield, Mr. McCornack stated, the crop is certain to bring a vast sum of money into the Palouse country com- munities. There is some misconcep- speaker. His family consists of the:, wife and one daughter He w'lli (:lose] his work in California early in July add the family will drive through IoI Palouse. The ~eries ~f lneetings couductcd at the Christian church by Rev. H. E. Wilhite, ewmgelist, and P. O. Gate(. singer, closed Sunday /tight. Sixty- five persons united with the church durtng the meetings and 1he attend- anee was good throughout. The crowds was especially large Sin,day night, the large building being filled to capacity. Rev. Wllhite spoke ou 'Mother, Home anti Heaven." Each ~ion, however, the Spokane man sta!- ~d, in regard to the profit which th~ person was presented with a t'Iower on entering the house, alld itl one (:;oi) will bring lO the individual farmer. People are prone to forget t hat the summer fallow on which the fall wheat was sown and the seeding iisdlf, carries the high cost that pre- vailed throughout 1920, when the price of labor and seed was at the very rap. This will materially de- crease the farmer's proflt on the crop, but will not shrink the amount of money that the crop will bring into the con/muntty and which will find i!s way into all channels of busi- ness. Gener'd conditions, Mr. McCor- t~ack stated, are better, in that the ~traln and stress of the early days of readjustment are passed, bankers and (rosiness people generally having ad- lusted their afairs to a great extent. The world, he says, is sick, however, ;,nd Is convalescing, but time will be required and the recovery wtll be gradual. No really prosperous times, nationally speaking, can be expected until there is a readjustment of world finance. Along this line, Mr. McCornack stated, it is Impossible for an individual to prosper, tn the true sense of the word, unless the community ts prospering and his ef- fort aiding in the prosperity of oth- ers. This appltes generally, no state being truly prosperous unless the oth- er states of the nation ar~ prosperous :rod no nation being on a sound basis of prosperity unless the other na- tions of the world are prosperous. As individuals, communities, states and nations, we are Interdependent, Mr. McCornack stated, and are shirking a~. citizens If we do not recognize our re,~ponslbiltties one toward the other. Until the farmer, the laborer, the buMnes. man, realizes hls duty, one inward the other, there ean be no permanent prosperity. When all are enjoying reasonable prosperity and each individual considering the wel- fare of the other along with his own welfare, eondition~ are at their be~t. best. Mr. McCornack stated that no com- munit.v with which he is familiar is comine~ through the readJustmeut ! nerlod tn better condition than Pa-] louse, where speculation during the ~ertod 'of inflation was limited. Wins Suit Against County. A, verdict for $25,000 damagesl against Whitman coun'ty was award~! ed to Mrs. Howe. whose husband was. killed in an accident on the state road near Steptoe. The court held l that the county was culpable in that,' the county commissioners neglectedi to repMr the highway. A motion has been made for a new trial. County officials believe that Whitman county will never pay the damages. point in the services these [lowers were waved in unison by the crowd. the sight heing ~ most beautiful on(,.
