Mr. IL 3,4... 3m, Repikesto C.
IL L-3m

t a Editor Ocala Banner:
y attention has Just been called to
an article in yourissue of the ad, writ-
ten by C. M. B., Jr. (C. M. Brown, Jr.)
formerly of Marion county, now of
Miami, m which he takes the Commis-
sion to taak and undertakes to show of
how little value, if any, it is to the tax
p',ers of the State.
in this article I wish merely to dis-
cuss C. M. B., Jr.'a letter, and will
not undertake to go into the details of
a discussion of the Railroad Commission
law and the acts of the Commission,
which I intend to do at a later day, but
wish merely to show that C. M. B., Jr.,
has misrepresented the matters which
he complains of, and misquoted the
Under date of February 5th the Dade
County Furniture Co. (C M. B., Jr.)
wrote the Commission as follows:
"We enclose you a bill against the
Florida East Coast Railway, and also
show an expense bill from them, show-
ing that they charged 80 cents when
the shipment originated in Jacksonville
and 97 cents when the same originated
in Augusta, Ga. Is this right? These
goods were exactly the same, cotton
and excelsior mattresses."
The Commission were anxious to aid
Mr. Brown in any way that they could,
and the shipment of mattresses from
Augusta, Ga., to Miami, Fla., being in-
terstate commerce, we took the matter
up with the Interstate Commerce Com-
mission, upon the bare hope that they
would take the position that a through
rate should not be greater than the sum
of the local rates, which is the case in
this instance, the Florida East Coast
Railway's portion of the through rate
from Augusta to Miami being 17 cents
per 100 pounds greater, Jacksonville to
Miami, than if the shipment had been
shipped to Jacksonville and thence re-
shipped from Jacksonville to Miami,
under Florida Classification.
To this the Interstate Commerce Com-
mission answered in substance:
"That the through rate being greater
than the sum of the locals did not follow
that the rate in all cases would be un-
reasonable, but that the whole thing
.- resolved itself down to the question,
was the rate a just and reasonable one?
and that this could only be determined
upon complaint and investigation of all
the facts surrounding the case, in order
to reach a conclusion."
Mr. C. M. B. Jr. has never asked the
Florida Railroad Commission to prefer
a formal charge to the Interstate Com-
merce Commission against the Florida
East Coast Railway in order that they
might investigate and determine
whether the rate be paid from Augusta,
Ga., to Miami was an unjust and un-
reasonable one, but he has rushed into
the columns of the Banner for the pur-
pose of trying to prove to the people of
Florida that a Railroad Commission is a
useless but costly institution, main-
tained at the expense of the taxpayers.
Now, to quote C. M. B. Jr's letter
further, he says:
"To illustrate, on page31 of the Flor-
ida Railroad Commission's Classifica-
tion, mattresses made of straw, cotton
fibre, etc.. take third class; in Southern
freight classification (adopted by the
railroads) they take second-class rate.
We shipped one car of mattresses from
Jacksonville, Florida, and two cars
from Augusta, Ga., at the same time.
The Jacksonville car came at 80 cents,
Jacksonville to Miami, third-class rate
jp: 100 lbs., and the two cars from Au-
gusta, Ga., was charged at 97 cents per
100 lbs Jacksonville to Miami, the sec-
ond-class rate a difference of 17 cents
per 100 lbs., charged because the ship.
ment did not originate and was destined
to a point wholly within the State"
C. B. Jr. undertakes to quote the
Commission as follows:
"The Interstate Commerce Commis-
sion would not allow them to enforce
their r.ite on shipments originating with-
out the State."
The above is not correct; our secre-
tary wrote Mr. Brown, by direction, as
( follows:
"I am directed to advise you that the
Commission are advised by counsel that
they cannot compel the railroads to use
the Florida Railroad Commission classi-
fication on shipments, unless they are
divested of their interstate nature."
He was also told how to have his
goods shipped in order to secure the
benefits of the commission's s classifica-
Now, Mr. Editor, if I were to write
an article in answer to C M. B, Jr.
that would cover your whole editorial
page, I could not illustrate the useful-
ness of the Florida Railroad Commis-
sion better than the gentleman has
done himself. He acknowledges that
the Florida Railroad Commission, by
the classification has com polled the
Florida East Coast Railroad Company
to transport a carload of mattresses
from Jacksonville to Miami for 17 cents
per Ib. less than the rate charred
him from that point on a shipment that
originated outside of this State, and if
it were not for the Florida Railroad

Commission, they would be charging on
9' all shipments, whether origrati
within the State, rates based upon the
Southern Classifcation, which was ueed
os tha shipment from Augusta, Ga.

The Popular Liver Medicine
Will Keep You Well
A GUARANTEED CURE for all diseases produced by TOR.
PID LIVER and IMPURE BLOOD. Do not fill your system
with Arsenic, Calomel and Quinine. They act as rank poisons
which vitiate the blood, debilitate the system, and leave a trail
of bad symptoms which require years to obliterate. HERB.
INE is purely vegetable and contains no mineral or narcotic
poisons, is absolutely harmless and is the simple remedy of
nature. It carries off all poison in the system and leaves no
injunous effects.
Mr. L. A. Hicks, Iredell, Texas, says: I was
sick in bed for eilht months with liver trouble, the
doctor seemed to do me nogood. I was told to try
Herbine, and it cured me In a short time. I cannot
recommend this wonderful medicine too highly."
