OCALA FLORIDA. TUESDAY. MARCH 21. 1914
tlG ID SHORT
Expounded in Width and Length at
the Rate Meeting Yesterday
At Monday afternoon's session Mr.
Capps, of the Seaboard, again took
the stand. .On being asked whether
a road had the right to change its
rates from the one prescribed by the
commission without the order of
that body, Mr. Capps said that he
thought they had, provided it was
necessary at competitive water
Mr. Spencer contended that the
law does not remove the ruling of
the commission to the effect that no
rate can be raised by a carrier with
out application to that body. He
cited cases before the interstate com commission
mission commission in which they had compelled
a unuorm rate 10 certain Micnigan
X!jOints from New Orleans when it
was shown that a more distant point
had the lowest rate.
Mr. Spencer contends that rail railroads
roads railroads cannot raise rates to Tampa
except by consent of the commission,
but may reduce it to intermediate
points to conform to the rate charged
Mr. Capps said that his road could
haul grain from Jacksonville to
Tampa at 11 cents per hundred at a
profit, but that they could not scale
all their rates on the same basis and
pay operating expenses, let alone in interest

When asked why the Seaboard ac accepted

to Tampa at a leas rate than they
charged Ocala, when they do not
claim any water competition between
the two first named cities, Mr. Capps
said that he had no explanation to
offer in justification of such rate.

road would lose if the short haul i fact that the rate from Jacksonville

which he replied that he could not
state without going into detailed
figures with the several departments
of the road.
Edwin Spencer's Cross-Exaniination
Mr. Spencer cross-examined Mr.
Capps, and made many telling points.
Mr. Spencer first brought out that
there was no boat line competing
with the Seaboard between Jackson Jacksonville
ville Jacksonville and Tampa. He then took up
the question of grain, and Mr. Capps
testified that a great deal of the grain
into Tampa came by boat from Phil Philadelphia,
adelphia, Philadelphia, and that a rate of 12 cents
per hundred pounds was made by the
boat line, and that the Seaboard was
forced to make the same rate from
Philadelphia into Tampa in order to
compete. It was brought out here
that the rate on grain from Jackson Jacksonville
ville Jacksonville to Ocala was fifteen cents per
lhundred pounds, and from Philade Philadelphia
lphia Philadelphia to Tampa it was twelve cents
ypVt hundred pounds.
( At this point Mr. B. A. Weathers
asked Mr. Capps if the Seaboard ble address, telling why the whole whole-made
made whole-made a profit by hauling grain from j ale merchants of the interior had
Philadelphia to Tampa for twelve been driven out of business. He said

answered yes. Mr. Weathers then) (Continued on Page Five)

asked Mr. Capps if the Seaboard
could make a profit by carrying grain
from Philadelphia to Tampa for
.twelve cents why it could not bring

u xo ucaia lor iweive cents.
Mr. Spencer then established that
there was no water competition on
grain between Jacksonville and Tam Tampa,
pa, Tampa, and that the rate of twelve cents
from Jacksonville to Tampa, and the
rate of fifteen cents from Jackson Jacksonville
ville Jacksonville to Ocala, was more or less ar arbitrarily
bitrarily arbitrarily fixed, and was without jus justification
tification justification or excuse.
Mr. Spencer then took up the ques question
tion question of fresh meats, and brought out
that there was no competition what whatsoever
soever whatsoever by water on fresh meats to
Tampa, but that the railroads were
deliberately charging Ocala fifteen
cents freight on fresh meats from
Jacksonville, and only charging Tam Tampa
pa Tampa eleven cents for fresh meats from
Mr. Spencer then asked Mr. Capps
this question: "Mr. Capps, what jus justification
tification justification can the Seaboard Air Line
present for making the people of
Ocala pay your line fifteen cents
freight on fresh meats from Jackson Jacksonville
ville Jacksonville when they charge the people of
Tampa only eleven cents?"
Mr. Capps replied: "There is no
justification, and I do not attempt to
Mr. Spencer then took up article
after article on which greater charges
were made from Jacksonville to
Tampa, and on cross-examination
practically the same result was
reached as on the article of fresh
Mr. Spencer then asked the wit witness:
ness: witness: "How is it, Mr. Capps, that on
first class goods you charge 24 per
cent, more from Jacksonville to
Ocala than you charge from Jackson Jacksonville
ville Jacksonville to Tampa, and on third class
goods you charge 4 7 per cent,
Mr. Capps said that he could not
explain, except that the rates were
made before he became connected
with the Seaboard.
Mr. Spencer then asked: "How is

Mr. Taylor of Gainesville asked
several hard questions about the ce

from Jacksonville to Ocala it was
$1.90 a ton. Mr. Ca'pps did not sat satisfactorily
isfactorily satisfactorily explain why such discrim discrimination
ination discrimination was made.
Mr. L. S. Light asked some perti pertinent
nent pertinent questions about the capitaliza capitalization
tion capitalization of the Seaboard, bringing out
the fact that the Seaboard Air Line
was capitalized at $65,000 per mile,
when as a matter of fact, it took only
eight or ten thousand dollars per
mile to build it.
Chairman Burr stated that- the
Seaboard had 558,000,000 of water watered
ed watered stock. He said that the railroad
commission did not intend to fix
Tates on the capitalization of the
company, but on the actual physical
valuation of the same.
Mr. Light then filed as an exhibit
with the railroad commission a type typewritten
written typewritten document showing the gross
earnings of the Seaboard for a num number
ber number of years past, and showing the
capitalization now and in 1900.

live alligators the boys get poles
with boat hooks attached and go and
station themselves right over the

The young ones as they come up are
hooked. Sometimes the old one bobs

will stride it, while the other boys

Found That Hogs Could Jump.
A Geary county (Kan.) farmer built
a "hog-tight" fence around his feed
lot just before he received a big ship shipment
ment shipment of Arkansas razorbacks." The
next morning the hogs were scattered
all over the county. It was found that
most of them could clear the fence
with a standing jump, although some
of them were compelled to make a
running jump of it- But all of them
could jump it.

'MY ATTAINMENT OF THE POLE"
The new book published by Dr.
Frederick A. Cook, called "My At Attainment
tainment Attainment of the Pole," is a wonder wonderfully
fully wonderfully interesting and thrilling- story
of adventure and travel and gives
one an intimate knowledge of a
country never before explored by any
human being. His experiences are
tales of human suffering and heroism
with which everyone will thrill. His
narrative has the ring of sincerity
and honest endeavor throughout.
Read this captivating story of the
first expedition to reach the world's
top. Read the sensational story of
Ma-nee, the Eskimo woman, who
braved and violated the Spartan law
to save her two 'deformed children
who, according to this law, were
doomed to die.
Read of the coming of the Eskimo
stork and other details of the lives
and environment of the inhabitants
of the farthest north.
Read of his hunts for walrus and
other Polar animals, when a miss
would have meant death. The many
hardships and almost countless hair hairbreadth
breadth hairbreadth escapes survived by Dr. Cook
are told, not with a sense of self self-commendation
commendation self-commendation for endurance, but
merely a stating of the facts of what
had to be endured in order to fulfill
Every fair and thinking person in
the land, whatever his sympathies
may be, will want to know both sides
of the Polar controversy. People
whose opinion is not swayed by
partisan attacks, but who reason for
themselves, will want to know Dr.
Cook's presentment of his case.
The book contains over 600 finely
illustrated pages and is neatly, bound
in cloth; it is the kind of travel book
that usually sells for $5. By spe special

The Star does not expect much
from the railroad rate meetings in
Ocala and Kissimmee except pub- i
licity of the rights of the people and j
the wrongs inflicted upon them. i
If the railroad commission orders
the roads to obey the law, they will
almost certainly resist, take the mat matter
ter matter into the courts, and try to wear
the commission and the people out
by delay and technicality. The roads
can do this at little expense. They
keep their legal advisers on salary,
and may just as well make them
earn their money in this work as not.
When the next legislature meets,
railroad men will be on hand with a
big lobby and lots of money, and try
to have the law repealed or so
amended that it will make no differ difference

it is enforced or not.

of this sort they do, they hasten the ;

The Star was one of those that in
years past opposed government own
ership because of the evils it feared.
It has seen those evils come to pass,
and worse, at the hands of the cor
porations. So it takes its stand
among the advocates of government
ownership. It is better to fly to the
evils that we may avoid than endure
these we are now oppressed with.

The discussion brought out the
fact that the contract had never been

which is a violation of the law, as
Chairman Burr told Slr. Capps, and
the same must be filed at once.
Has a Strangle hold on the O. X.
Mr. Spencer asked Mr. Capps if
the O. X. should build and operate a
track of its own from the springs to
Ocala would his road, as well as the
A. C. L., not see that it was cut off
from any tonnage from the west. Mr.
Capps evaded the question for awhile
and then stated that his road would
certainly use all legitimate means of
preventing such and to protect the
line from loss of business, as any
other business firm would do in a
Mr. Spencer: "Mr. Capps, the profit
of your road (I will call it profit for
short) is 23 cents on each dollar of
traffic. If jour road can make this
profit on hauling grain from Jack Jacksonville

more profit on the same commodity
to Ocala at the same rate; and why
is a 15-cent rate necessary to Ocala?
Is the rate to Ocala not made nec necessary

This Mr. Capps would not admit.
He did not know, and no one knew,
whether the rate to Tampa was a
loss or a profit, but said it was com compelled

After much questioning by Mr.
Spencer, Mr. Capps admitted that
the rate to Tampa did represent a
profit, but could only give the old
answer as to why Ocala shouldnot
enjoy a lower rate, on half the haul,
instead of a higher one -lack of wa water
ter water competition here.
Then the learned gentlemen
thrashed back and forth over the
question, of whether Ocala was not
paying for a loss at Tampa or wheth whether
er whether the rate at Ocala was not made
necessary ove rthe competitievly en enforced

not so many words, but Mr. Capps

and did amount to a great deal as

Quizzing the Coast Line
Mr. Menzies stated that the condi conditions
tions conditions of his road as affected by the
long and short haul were somewhat
different from the Seaboard, as be between
tween between Jacksonville and Tampa,
touching Ocala's interests. Its thru
rails did not pass thru Ocala and its
mileage is far greater 25 miles
more than its competitor. It has to
perform a greater service for the
same rate. It has the longest route
to many competitive points in the
state and does not get as much for
its service, in consequence, as the
Seaboard. He said the Coast Line
had petitioned the commission for
relief from the long and short haul
act in four hundred instances.
Right here, we would like to state,
that to the reporter it seemed that
the entire hearing was brought on a
grievance of the railroads that they
be allowed to maintain the VERY
LOW RATES they now have in force.
As a matter of fact, their contention,
briefly, in all points, is that they be
allowed to maintain the rates now in
existence at points like Tampa,
Jacksonville, Pensacola, Palatka and
some river points with competition,
and, AT THE SAME TIME, THE
STILL HIGHER RATES AT LOCAL
POINTS BETWEEN ONE OF THESE
POINTS AND THE OTHER.

discussion on the rates out of the

I glanced back at the high window;

ere I could hope to return she would
have disappeared into the unknown
wilderness. Harmar would know noth nothing

remain no trail I could hope to follow;
I would never see her again.
All this was years ago, long years,
and yet I recall still how I occupied
those hours with preparation, striving

ceaseless labor. Little by little I

I recall changing my clothes, put putting

packing my uniform in a bag. Then
I sought out Brady, finding him alone
outside the stockade, lying on the

but making no effort to change his

carelessly, "they tell me you and I are

"No less; maybe an hour ago. 'Tis
