OCALA, FLORIDA, FKIDAY. FEBRUARY 13, 1914
Conference in Ocala Results in
Straightening Out Most of the
Difference -Between Shippers and
The special committee appointed
during yesterday forenoon to confer
with the traffic officers of the express
company and formulate plans for
consideration at the general meeting
met at the Ocala House at 1 o'clock.
The meeting started by the re request
quest request of the express people to know
in what instance their new rates
(Mr. Estees, representing the Bar Bartow
tow Bartow section in the meeting cited the
rates made him by the agent of the
company at that point. These rates
were looked into by examining the
fates prescribed by the interstate
commerce commission, and it was
discovered that the agent quoting
the rates had not fully digested the
new tariffs and made rates according
to the old schedules, which allowed
the same charges on standard pack packages
ages packages on shipments of ten crates as it
did on one. The difference was
shown lay the rate schedule to be 93
cents on. single packages and 83
cents on shipments of ten, from that
point to New York.
Mr. E. L. Howell then asked for
the rates on canteloupes to New
York and Boston and was informed
that they were just as he had figur figured
ed figured them out in a communication to
the Star a few days ago. He then
asked if it was not in the power of
the express company amder the re
cent rates promulgated by the inter interstate
state interstate commerce commission to re
duce the rates to those charged in
the -past. A representative of the
company announced that it was, but
propose to do this in one instance
and be compelled to charge the cut
rates made by the commission in
This announcement, Mr. Howell
said, was what he wanted, as it
feems that it has been claimed that
rthe company could not make sucn a
rate in the face of the recently en
Mr. Hockaday. general manager
of the Southern Express Company,
Atlanta, at this point arose and said
that under these circumstances he
advised using iced freight cars for
the shipment of this class of com
A resolution was offered by :Mr.
A. G. T. Moore, secretary of the
Gainesville board of trade, asking
that the express company, with the
consent of the commission, allow
the use of the old rate on certain
vegetables which have already been
planted, for a period of sixty days
This met the disapproval of the
transportation people, they claimin
that it was absolutely unfair to them
in the face of the fact they would
be compelled to accept the many re
ductions made, by the powers.
Mr. Moore presented a largely
signed petition from the farmers in
his community, asking for relief
They showed that at the rate asked
by the express company they could
not ship any of their crops of beets
now in the ground, as even with a
favorable market the cost of produc
tion and snipnient wo la be a great
deal more than they could hope to

Teeene. me peuuou representea a
large acreage of beets, which, at a
very low estimate, was worth over
twelve thousand dollars.
In order to ascertain just what ad advances
vances advances or decreases had been made
in the rates, Mr. Lloyd Tenny, sec secretary
retary secretary and manager of- the Florida
Growers and Shippers League, asked
that a number of comparative rates
be made known before a vote was
taken- on the resolution.
Messrs. W. W. Owen and W. G.
Hughes, attachees of the Chatta Chattanooga
nooga Chattanooga offices of the express company,
furnished this information, which
disclosed the following random rates
on vegetables and fruits from Flori Florida
da Florida points to market centers: Cijtrus
fruits from Winter Haven toXew
York in ten crate lots advancl to
8 cents per crate; beans from Wa Wa-chula
chula Wa-chula to Pittsburg in ten crate lots
same rate; citrus fruits from Fort
Myers to Washington advanced 54
cents; beans from Bartop' to Wash
ington reduced- 2 ceats per crate;
cantaloupes from Ocala to New York
advanced 51 cents per crate; beans
from Ocala to New York reduced 12
cents per crate.
After a thorough going into the
rates and a consequent better under understanding
standing understanding of them, Chairman Meffert
put the resolution, which was lost.
Mr. Hockaday said he would take
it upon himself, to. assure the Gain
esville growers that the weight esti
mated on a barrel crate of beets
would be reduced to 120' pounds.
This was quite a victory for the
Gainesville representative, as he said
with this concession his people
would be able to gather their, crops
with a reasonable certainty that
they would not be an entire loss,
which would have been the result
had they been compelled to ship at
the rate as shown in the express tar
Mr. Tenny in a short speech be
fore the committee said that he Re Relieved
lieved Relieved the revision of the rates on
the basis they had been made would
ultimately result in a betterment of
the condition of the Florida shipper
as the same rate would prevail, ac
cording to distance, all over the
country. This he argued would
place us in position to get to our es established
tablished established markets at a less rate than
many other sections further away.
And as to re-establishing the old
rates for a time, this would raise the
rates to the southern markets above
the present ones, and would be most
undesirable to many sections of the
state. Mr. Tenny advised the or
ganization of the vegetable growers
along the same lines as those adopt
ed by the fruit growers of the state.

to make. up car load lots for certain
points ana secure the consequent
At. about 3:30 the committee ad
journed to the court house where the
members of the convention were
awaiting their report.
Secretary Rooney introduced Mr.
Tenny of the Growers' league, who
made a splendid talk on the lines of

very encouragingly of the good re
sults which he believed would even-!
