TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 



OF THE 



Railroad and Warehouse Commission 



OF THE 



STATE OF MINNESOTA . 

FOR THE YEAR ENDING NOVEMBER 30, 1907 



RAILROAD COMPANIES' REPORTS. 



RAILROAD MILEAGE IN MINNESOTA. 

The total number of miles of main lines of railroad opera- 
ting in Minnesota (not including local transfer lines, union depot 
tracks and private logging roads) on June 30th, 1907, was 
8023.09 miles, and on June 30th, 1906, as shown in our report 
for that year, was 7937.12, which shows an increase for the 
year 1907 of 85.97 miles. 

The mileage of terminal railways, transfer railways, bridge 
and belt line railways for the year ending June 30th, 1907, is 
87.54, and for the year 1906, 81.56, which shows an increase for 
1907 of 5.98 miles. 

The total increase in mileage in Minnesota for the year 
ending June 30th, 1907, was 93.11 miles, and the decrease 7.14 
miles, which gives a net increase of 85.97 miles, the principal 
increases being as follows : 



6 TWENTY-TIIJRD ANNUAL REPORT 

Duluth & Northern Minnesota Ry 19. 6S 

Being 10 miles of main line in operation for 
logging purposes and 9.68 of branches and 
spurs. 

Duluth, St. Cloud, Glencoe & Mankato Ry 39.37 

Being a new line from Albert Lea to St. Clair. 

Duluth, Rainy Lake & Winnipeg Ry 15.80 

Being extensions of main track. 

Minneapolis & Rainy River Ry 11.30 

Being extensions of main track. 

The decreases are logging lines taken up and changes in 
line causing a reduction in mileage. 

The increase in. the terminal transfer mileage of 5.98 miles 
is caused by the increased mileage of the Minnesota Transfer 
Railway Company. 

*GR0SS EARNINGS STATE OF MINNESOTA. 

The total gross earnings of the railroads doing business in 
the State of Minnesota from freight, passenger, express, mail, 
demurrage, storage, car mileage and miscellaneous earnings 
for the year ending June 30th, 1907, were $88,674,278, and for 
the year ending June 30th, 1906, $81,619,640, which shows an 
increase for the year 1907 of $7,054,638. 

fOPERATING EXPENSES STATE OF MINNESOTA. 

The total proportion of operating expenses applicable to the 
State of Minnesota as reported by the Railroad Companies for 
the year ending June 30th, 1907, was $48,247,178, and for the 
year ending June 30th, 1906, $41,132,454, which shows an in- 
crease for the year 1907 of $7,114,724. 



♦Gross earnings consist of: Gross earnings from business originating and 
terminating in the State of Minnesota, and the proportion of gross earnings ac- 
cruing to Minnesota on all interstate business divided on a straight mileage 
basis: I. e., a proportion based upon the proportion of the mileage within the state 
to the entire mileage over which such business is done, of earnings on all inter- 
state business passing through, into or out of the state. 

tOperating Expenses are localized where it is possible to do so and charged 
against the State, and what cannot be localized is charged against the State 
on the basis of the State Train Mileage, i. e., what the proportion of the State 
Train Mileage bears to the Total Train Mileage of the system.

CURTAILMENT OF REPORT. 

In last year's report attention was called to the necessity 
cf having to reduce the size of the report by tabulating in a 
condensed form the statistical information which prior to the 
year 1905 appeared in the respective railroad reports, which 
were printed in full at that time at the end of the Commission- 
ers' report. 

The plan adopted so far has worked out satisfactorily and 
will be continued in this volume. Reference to any specific 



RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. II 

statistical table required can be found by referring to the page 
preceding the statistical tables. 

The original reports filed by the Railroad Companies with 
this Commission can be seen and examined, by any one interested, 
at the office of the Commission in the Capitol Building, St. Paul, 
where all information pertaining to them can be obtained. 

ORGANIZATION OF THE COMMISSION. 

The Commission is now constituted as follows: 

Ira B. Mills, re-elected November, 1904, term expires Jan- 
uary, 1909. 

Charles F. Staples, re-elected November, 1906, term expires" 
January, 1911. 

Wm. E. Young, elected November, 1904, term expires Jan- 
uary, 1909. 

GRAIN INSPECTION, WEIGHING AND REGISTRA- 
TION DEPARTMENTS. 

The Annual Reports of these departments, which up to a 
year ago were included in the Annual Report of the Commis- 
sion, are now issued in a separate form for the more conven- 
ient use of those engaged in the grain trade or otherwise 
specially interested in this particular subject. Copies can be 
obtained by application to the Chief Inspector of Grain, State Cap- 
itol, St. Paul Minnesota. 

LEGISLATION RECOMMENDED. 

1. 

We renew recommendation made in the 1906 report that 
legislation be enacted requiring all parties who may desire to 
build extensions or new lines of railroad, regardless of the mo- 
tive power to be used, to secure the written consent of the 
Commission upon application setting out in detail the contem- 
plated improvement and after public hearing, the object being to 
prevent the unnecessary duplication of roads or building of un- 
necessary lines. 



12 TWENTY-TH1KD ANNUAL REPORT 



2. 



Development during the past year gives greater promi- 
nence to and promise of, the successful construction of electric 
railways in this State, which in a more or less degree will take 
the place of the steam railways as time goes on. 

Under a recent decision of the Supreme Court, a certain 
character of suburban electric railway seems to be placed under 
the jurisdiction of the Commission. In this connection it is 
contended by some authorities that the jurisdiction would not 
extend to that portion of the line within the corporate limits 
of any village or city. It will be apparent that supervision 
limited as this would limit it, would be entirely impracticable 
and- useless. Undoubtedly these electric lines will in many 
cases be owned and operated by steam railways, and, in the judg- 
ment of the Commission, the best interests of the State will be served 
by placing electric railways under the jurisdiction of the Commis- 
sion. We, therefore, recommend legislation to that end. 

GRAIN LEGISLATION. 



It was the intention in the legislation enacted at the session 
of 1907 that the so-called unit bushel, providing that all grain 
should be bought on the basis of the standard legal weight 
should apply to both stored and purchased grain, but in the 
opinion of the Attorney General the wording of the law only 
makes it apply to grain placed in store. We urge such amend- 
ment as may be necessary to make this apply to all grain han- 
dled within the State. 

2. 

We recommend the enactpient of a law providing for a legal 
surrender receipt. 

Also a law providing for the furnishing of a bond by all local 
warehouses to protect those having grain in the same. 



We recommend the enactment of a law authorizing the 
holder of receipts, or anyone who may so desire, to ship grain 
through a local warehouse, providing that such person may order the 
cars desired and require the same to be spotted at the warehouse. 



RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. 13 

WORK OF THE COMMISSION. 

There were 774 applications and complaints of a specific 
character which engaged the attention of the Commission 
during the twelve months covered by this report and received 
final disposition at their hands, divided as follows : Forty-three 
petitions concerning depots, 8 platform cases and 2 concerning 
elevator sites, 17 applications for sidetracks, 4 for "wye" con- 
nections, 18 complaints regarding train service, 4 against com- 
mission merchants, 24 cases regarding railroad rates and 3 
cases affecting express rates, 47 complaints concerning over- 
charges and claims, 43 pertaining to delay in movement of 
loaded cars, 208 complaints of shortage of cars for various 
shipments and 69 complaints of a miscellaneous character. 
There were also filed 284 applications for permission to make 
changes in existing rates or classifications, 262 of which were 
filed by railway companies and 22 by express companies. These 
applications were made under the requirements of Section 3, 
Chapter 176, G. L. 1905, and resulted in a reduction of rates 
in a majority of the cases considered. The disposition made 
by the Commission in these various cases can be found on pages 
57 to 87 inclusive, and a complete index thereto on the last 
pages of this report. The number of cases disposed of by the 
Commission shows an increase of 156, or twenty-five per cent 
over those of the previous year, which indicates the rapid and 
constant growth in the work of this department. Not included 
in the above cited cases were several hundred minor matters 
that were adjusted by correspondence. Among these subjects 
were numerous requests for information regarding the correct 
rates applicable between certain points, both on state and in- 
terstate traffic. In all such cases the correct rates were given 
to the party making the inquiry. The Commission makes a 
special effort to keep as complete files of interstate tariffs as 
possible on account of their bearing on state rates. The Com- 
missioners' file of State tariffs is undoubtedly very complete 
and probably superior to most files of its kind in the country. 

There were also several complaints from citizens of Minne- 
sota involving questions of interstate business which were for- 
warded to the Interstate Commerce Commission for disposal 
at its hands, and the result reported by this Commission to the 
complainant in each case. 



14 TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

Attention is respectfully directed to some of the special fea- 
tures of this report which include several important subjects to 
which the attention of the Commission has been devoted during 
the past year: . 

Continuation of the work of Valuation of Railways of Min- 
nesota, page 14. 

Merchandise and Commodity Rates Cases, page 20. 

Commodity "In" Rates from Terminals to Country Distrib- 
uting Points, page 26. 

General Investigation of the Reasonableness of Express 
Rates, page 31. 

Investigation and Adjustment of Express Rates on Milk 
and Cream, page 32. 

Attorney General's Opinions, page 132. 

VALUATION OF RAILWAYS IN MINNESOTA. 

The Commission has been engaged since June 1, 1906, in 
making a valuation of the physical properties of the railways in 
Minnesota. The chief purpose of this valuation is to establish 
a basis for the regulation of intrastate rates. It is, however, 
further expected to throw light on the question of the fairness 
of the tax upon railway gross earnings that is now levied. The 
Railroad Commission is being aided in its work by Dwight C. 
Morgan, chief engineer, assisted by several assistant engineers, 
in charge of department work, and a large clerical force. 

The Commission believes that the valuation when it is com- 
pleted will be the result of one of the most minute and compre- 
hensive investigations of the physical properties of railways 
ever made. Already it *has attracted much attention from 
officials of railways both in and outside of Minnesota, and from 
railroad commissions elsewhere, several of whom have adopted 
for use in making valuations in their own states the blanks 
prepared by the Minnesota Commission for its work. For 
these and other reasons the valuation being made in this State 
i j one of the most interesting and important developments now 
taking place in the field of government regulation of railways. 

The first step taken by the Commission in beginning the 
appraisement was to have prepared by its engineers a set of 
blanks embracing substantially every part, large and small, of 



RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. 15 

the physical property of a railway. These blanks were de- 
signed to ascertain the value, both new and in their present 
condition, of the various articles and properties listed. Each 
railway was divided into sections, which were numbered, and 
a set of blanks for each section was sent to the operating rail- 
way owning or operating it with directions to cause the blanks 
to be filled out. This involved, of course, a complete inventory 
and valuation of each railway's properties by that railway itself. 
It required a more searching scrutiny of the roads by their 
managements than in most cases had ever been made bef6re. 

SUMMARY SHEETS. 

Besides the blanks on which the information already out- 
lined was required to be entered, the Commission sent out a 
"Section Appraisal Sheet" and a "Final Summary Sheet. " On 
the former the railway was directed to enter the items shown 
on the detail sheets, and to show the "cost of reproduction, 
new," the "condition per cent," and the "present value" of the. 
various items. On the "Final Summary Sheet" the road was 
requested to enter the number of miles of single track, second 
main track, third main track, fourth main track, branch lines 
and passing, side and industry tracks in the section covered, 
and the "cost of reproduction, new," and "present value" of the 
following : 

Land for right of way, yards and terminals. 

Grading, clearing and grubbing. 

Protection work, riprap, retaining walls. 

Tunnels. 

Crossties and switches. 

Ballast. 

Rails. 

Track fastenings. 

Switches, frogs and railroad crossings. 

Tracklaying and surfacing. 

Bridges, trestles and culverts. 

Track and bridge tools. 

Fences, cattle guards and signs. 

Stock yards and appurtenances. 

Water stations. 

Coal stations. 

Station buildings and fixtures. 

Miscellaneous buildings. 

Steam and electric power plants, gas plants. 

General repair shops. 

Shop machinery and tools. 

Engine houses, turntables and cinder pits.

• ROADS ALREADY INSPECTED. 

After the information required from a road regarding its 
various sections had been received, the Commission and its 
engineers entered upon the work of checking, or verifying, its 
statements. This work has now been completed upon the 
following lines: 

Miles. 

Chicago & Northwestern 650 

Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha 436 

Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul 1,202 

Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific 236 

Chicago Great Western 893 

Great Northern 2,201

Duluth & Northern Minnesota 77 

Illinois Central 30 

Minneapolis, St. Paul & Sault Ste. Marie 541 

Minneapolis & St. Louis 379 

Minnesota Transfer. 64 

Northern Pacific 1,035 

Minnesota & International 191 

Total miles checked 7,500 

Only the statements of the ore roads and two or three 
smaller lines in the northern part of the state remain to be 
checked. 

The method employed by the Commission in verifying the 
statements submitted by the railways has been to make a more 
or less minute inspection of the various properties. When a 
section or sections of a road were to be inspected the Commis- 
sion has hired at the expense of the state a special train over 
whose movements it had complete control. The train would 
be taken out over the road by one or more members of the 
Commission, accompanied by the chief engineer of the Commis- 



RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. 1 7 

sion, two assistant engineers, and the division superintendent 
and roadmaster of the railway. The train was stopped at inter- 
vals of from one mile to four or five miles, the length of the run 
depending upon the character of the part of the road being 
passed over. The blanks that had been filled by the railway 
with information respecting the physical properties in and 
along the line traversed were taken along. When the train 
stopped the party got out, and the engineers of the Commission 
made a careful inspection of the roadway, adjacent buildings, 
etc., counting the ties, examining the rails and their fastenings, 
measuring the cuts and fills, classifying tunnels and bridges, 
examining the buildings and noting in their field books what 
they found. The actual conditions and facts observed were 
compared with the information which the railway had sub- 
mitted regarding this particular portion of its line. If any 
discrepancy between the statement of the railway and the facts 
found to exist by the engineers of the Commission was ob- 
served the matter was brought to the attention of the officers 
of the road who were present. 

MISTAKES IN REPORTS OF RAILWAYS. 

While the reports of the railways were usually found to be 
correct, this was not always the case. In one instance the 
report of the railway showed that 2,000,000 yards more of pay 
dirt had been moved on two of its divisions than the engineers 
of the Commission found actually had been moved. The rail- 
way sent its own engineers to investigate, and subsequently 
revised its statement in accordance with the finding of the 
engineers of the Commission. In another instance it was 
found that the same road had failed to report 90,000 yards of 
rock work that had cost $1.25 per yard; and the road's state- 
ment was corrected accordingly. One road failed to report 
the loading platforms on about 900 miles of line. Another 
overlooked its water tanks. Still another failed to mention its 
mail cranes. There were many such errors, most of them 
being simply clerical mistakes. 

Stations, shops, etc., were inspected in much the same way 
as r6adway. The buildings were carefully measured, the rail- 
way's statements as to the materials of which they were con- 
structed were verified, careful lists were made of shop tools, etc. 



l8 TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

FINDING VALUE OF RIGHT OF WAY. 

One of the most difficult problems that the Commission had 
to solve was the method to be employed in ascertaining the 
value of right of way. The method finally adopted was as fol- 
lows: Men were employed to visit each county seat to make 
complete records of all transfers of real estate within two miles 
of a railway that had been recorded in each county within five 
years. No attention was paid to transfers for nominal sums. 
The Commission believes that by this means it has ascertained 
the true market value of farm property adjacent to railways in 
every county, of the state. It is everywhere recognized, how- 
ever, that the value of land for right of way is different from) 
its value for agricultural purposes. In order, therefore, to as- 
certain the value of right of way it still remained for the Com- 
mission to decide what is the ratio between the value of farm 
lands and the value of adjoining right of way land. The Com- 
mission has decided on the basis upon which it will fix the value 
of the right of way, but it has not made public its decision. In 
arriving at its decision as to the ratio that should be established 
between the value of farm lands and the valuation of right of 
way, the Commission has been guided to a considerable extent 
by the prices that are being paid for land for right of way lines 
that are now being constructed or have recently been built. The 
Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul, for example, is building a branch 
from Farmington to Mankato, and the Commission has made care- 
ful inquiry to ascertain what it has paid for real estate. 

VALUATION OF TERMINALS. 

A still harder problem than the determination of the value 
cf right of way is the determination of the value of real estate 
used for terminals. The Commission has employed substan- 
tially the same method in the solution of both problems. Dur- 
ing the recent period of prosperity the roads have considerably 
enlarged their terminals in Minnesota cities and towns, and an 
effort has been made to ascertain both the prices at which this 
real estate and adjacent real estate have changed hands. The 
Minneapolis, St. Paul & Sault Ste. Marie is building terminals 
in the city of St. Paul, and the Commission is using the prices 
that it has paid for the land used to check the value of the other 
terminal property in Minneapolis and St. Paul. 



RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. 19 

While the Commission is giving out no exact data regard- 
ing the appraisal that it will place upon right of way and term- 
inal real estate, it may be stated authoritatively that its valua- 
tion of these properties will be considerably lower than the 
estimates submitted by the railway companies. The roads 
appointed a commission of real estate men to make an appraise- 
ment of their terminals in Minneapolis and St. Paul. The esti- 
mates returned by this real estate commission were regarded 
by the Railroad Commission as excessive and the final valua- 
tion will not correspond closely to them. 



HEARINGS ON ORIGINAL COST. 

When the work of checking over the reports of the railways 
with the reports of the Commission's engineers is completed, 
it is proposed to give a public hearing on the subject of valua- 
tion, chiefly for the purpose of ascertaining, as nearly as may 
be possible, the cost of original construction and of permanent 
improvements. This will involve a careful scrutiny of the 
books and papers of the roads. While it is the intention of the 
Commission to base the valuation chiefly upon the cost of re- 
production of the properties in their present condition, as the 
supreme court of the United States has said that the cost of 
original construction and of permanent improvements is a fac- 
tor that should be given weight, the Commission proposes to 
investigate the original cost of the roads with a view to giving 
to it such weight as it may seem to deserve. The hearings 
regarding cost of construction will probably be held early in 
the year 1908. 

It is estimated'that the cost of the valuation of the railways 
will not exceed $70,000.00. 

It is uniformly held that the cost of reproduction is one of the 
very important elements in determining what is a reasonable rate 
and certainly is the strongest kind of evidence of the fair valuation 
of the property. The Commission have always recognized the 
carrier's right to earn a reasonable return on a fair valuation of 
its property and has always had this in mind in every rate adjust- 
ment it has made. The valuation will be of great value in sus- 
taining the Commission and the Legislature in the pending litiga- 
tion should the contention be made that the rates in controversy 



20 TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

will not produce a fair return on the property used and it can be 
used in any further readjustment of rates that the Commission 
may deem it advisable or necessary to make. 

A REVIEW OF THE MERCHANDISE AND THE 
COMMODITY RATE CASES. 

The merchandise rates promulgated by the Commission Septem- 
ber 6th, 1906, which are reported in full in the annual report of that 
year, pages 24 to 26. inclusive, were adopted by the railroad com- 
panies and have been, since the date they were made effective, the 
maximum rates charged on merchandise. These rates made an 
average reduction of the merchandise rates in existence at the time 
of the order of from 20 to 25 per cent and also effected a more 
equitable adjustment of the rates between different sections of the 
state, placing the country stations on an equality with the larger 
cities. 

The commodity rates adopted by the Commission in its order 
of December 14, 1906, fully reported on pages 30 to 35 inclusive 
of the annual report of 1906, never became effective. This sched- 
ule made an average reduction on the different commodities as fol- 
lows : Wheat, flaxseed and flour, 16.5 per cent ; corn, oats, rye and 
barley, 25.5 per cent; lumber, 18.2 per cent; cattle, 11.8 per cent; 
hogs and sheep, 12.3 per cent; hard coal, 23.9 per cent; soft coal, 
28.4 per cent, or a net average reduction on all commodities of 77.37 
per cent. 

In January, 1907, the railroad companies affected by this order 
procured an injunction from the United States Circuit Court of the 
District of Minnesota forbidding the Commission to put these rates 
in force. The legislature met in January, 1907, and during its 
session enacted the two-cent passenger law, fixing the maximum 
rate to be charged for the transportation of passengers on railroads 
within the state at two cents per mile. The legislature having then 
concluded that in view of the reduction in passenger rates it would 
be unreasonable to also enforce the commodity rates fixed by the 
Commission, enacted Chapter 232 G. L. 1907, fixing a new sched- 
ule of commodity rates to supersede those established by the Com- 
mission. A copy of this law will be found below. Its effect 
was to raise the Commissiorlers , rates 7.37 per cent, and resulted 
in a net average reduction of 10 per cent on all commodities. 



RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. 21 

After the adjournment of the legislature, the stockholders of the 
several railroad companies commenced an action in the Federal 
Court, asking for an injunction preventing the enforcement of the 
merchandise rates established by the Commission, also the two-cent 
passenger rate and the commodity rates adopted by the legislature. 
The court issued a restraining order and required the Commission 
and the Attorney General to show cause why it should not be con- 
tinued during the trial of the case. The Commission forthwith 
began the preparation of evidence to show that the rates were not 
unreasonable and would afford the companies sufficient revenue to 
pay all legitimate expenses and allow reasonable compensation. A 
hearing was had on the question occupying two weeks' time; the 
State's case was very ably presented by the Attorney General and 
his associates. 

The Court, after the argument, continued the injunction forbid- 
ding the enforcement of the commodity rates, but allowed the mer- 
chandise rates and the two-cent passenger rate to remain in force 
pending the hearing of the cases.

Sec. 3. When the exact distance which a commodity is transported is 
not given in the foregoing schedule, the carrier may charge the rate speci- 
fied in the said schedule for the next greater distance. In order to consti- 
tute a carload, within the meaning of this act, the weight of the commodi- 
ties in any one car shall be at least as follows: Class eleven (11) and class 
twelve (12), twenty-four thousand (24,000) pounds; class thirteen (13), 
twenty thousand (20,000) pounds; class fourteen (14), nineteen thousand 
(19,000) pounds; class fifteen (15), fiifteen thousand (15,000) pounds; classes 
sixteen (16) and seventeen (17), thirty thousand (30,000) pounds. 

Sec. 4. No railroad company, which is a common carrier of property 
within the State of Minnesota, shall charge, take or receive any greater 
sum for carrying within this state, between stations therein, any of the 
commodities named in this act than the respective amounts set forth and 
provided in section two of this act for the respective distances therein 
named. 

Sec. 5. This act shall not in any manner affect the power or authority 
of the Railroad and Warehouse Commission, except that no duty shall rest 
upon the Railroad and Warehouse Commission to enforce any rates specific- 
ally fixed by this or any other statute of this state. Whenever, in a pro- 
ceeding regularly pending before the Railroad and Warehouse Commission, 
it shall be made to appear to the satisfaction of said Commission that the 
rates herein prescribed are unreasonable, it may, by order, fix higher or 
lower rates for the transportation of any of the commodities herein men- 
tioned over the line of any railroad in this state, and such rates, when so 
fixed shall supersede the rates herein prescribed upon said line of railroad, 
and shall be enforced as prescribed by the law relating to such orders, but 
until such order shall have been made by said Railroad and Warehouse 
Commission the rates herein prescribed shall be the exclusive legal maxi- 
mum rates for the transportation of the commodities herein enumerated 
between points within this state. 

Sec. 6. Every railroad company transacting the business of a common 
carrier within this state shall adopt and publish and put into effect rates 
not exceding the charges specified herein for the transportation by it be- 



24 TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

tween stations upon its line of road in this state of the commodities named 
in this act, and every officer, director, traffic manager or agent or employe 
of such railroad company, exercising any authority, or being charged with 
any duty in establishing freight rates for such railroad company shall 
cause the adoption, publication and use by such railroad company of rates 
not exceeding those specified in this act; and any officer, director, or such 
agent or employe of any such railroad company who violates any of the 
provisions of this section, or who causes or counsels, advises or assists any 
such railroad company to violate any of the provisions of this section, shall 
bo guilty of a misdemeanor, and may be prosecuted therefor in any county 
into which its railroad extends and in which it has a station, and upon con- 
viction thereof be punished by imprisonment in the county jail for a period 
not exceeding ninety days. 

Sec. 7. If, at the time of the taking effect of thjs act, any railroad is 
maintaining a rate between any two stations in this state that is less than 
the rate herein prescribed for the same distance, this act shall not be con- 
strued as authorizing the raising of such rate. 

Sec. 8. This act shall take effect and be in force from and after June 1, 
1907. 

Approved April 18, 1907. 



DISTRIBUTING RATES. 

Wadena Distributing Rates. — A petition was filed with the Com- 
mission May 13th, 1907, by manufacturers, shippers and numerous 
business men of Wadena, asking, for an order requiring the estab- 
lishment of terminal distributing rates by the Northern Pacific and 
Great Northern Railway Companies to and from said point simi- 
lar to those enjoyed at Fergus Falls, Crookston, Sauk Center, 
Brainerd and certain other points. 

Notice of hearing to take place at Wadena on the 13th day of 
August, 1907, was served on parties interested. The hearing came 
on at the time fixed for the purpose and was attended by a number 
of the petitioners and representatives of the railway companies. 
Considerable testimony pro and con was heard and statistics sub- 
mitted, at the close of which the case was taken under advisement. 

The Commission published its conclusions in the matter on 
August 20, 1907, as follows: 

(order.) 

BEFORE THE RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION OF 
THE STATE OF MINNESOTA. 

In the matter of the petition of the citizens and shippers of Wadena, Wa- 
dena County, Minnesota, to have the terminal rates of the NcwtJhern 
Pacific Railway Company and the Great Northern Railway Company 
as fixed by the order of the Railroad and Warehouse Commission of 
September 6, 1906, apply to Wadena. 

This matter came on for hearing at Wadena on the 13th day of Au- 
gust, 1907. The petitioners appeared by Hon. Asher Murray, President of 



RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. 2$ 

the Wadena Commercial Club, and other citizens and shippers. The North- 
ern Pacific Railway Company appeared by H. E. Still, Assistant General 
Freight Agent, and the Great Northern Railway Company by G. I. Sweeney, 
Assistant General Freight Agent. 

After hearing the evidence, the Commission finds the facts as follows: 

Wadena is located in the western part of Wadena county and is on the 
direct line of the Northern Pacific Railway Company running from Fargo 
to St. Paul and Duluth, an(J from Breckenridge to St. Paul and Duluth, also 
on the line of the Great Northern Railway Company extending north and 
south between Sauk Center and Cass Lake, which at those points intersect 
with the main lines of the Great Northern Railway Company. 

The testimony shows that a considerable amount of produce and 
manufactured goods are distributed from this point in carload and less than 
carload lots to dealers located in towns in the northern and western portions 
of the state. 

The Ebner Milling Company average about 120 cars in carload lots 
and from 60 to 75 cars in L. C. L. The company has been established in 
business eight years. The L. C. L. shipments consists principally of flour, 
corn meal and ground feed. All the wheat manufactured at this point is 
purchased locally; some of the corn used is shipped in from Dakota and 
Kansas points. 

The Dower Lumber Company maintains a yard from which lumber is 
distributed in L. C. L. to twelve or fifteen other towns, in which they main- 
tain retail yards. This company also deals in lime, which they wish to 
distribute in L. C. L. lots from Wadena, but cannot do so on account of the 
rates, because of competitive conditions. 

The amount of beer and soda water distributed L. C. L. annually 
amounts to from 60 to 70 cars. 

The volume of cracker shipments in car lots is about 2 cars per month 
and the average L. C. L. shipments are one-half car per day. These all go 
to dealers. 

The Minnesota & Dakota Produce Company handle principally butter, 
eggs and poultry. These are shipped in and distributed from this point. 
Carload shipments amount to about 30 to 40 cars per annum. L. C. L. 
shipments 30 to 40 cars. 

Butler Bros. & Sons, dealers in furniture, ship out on an average 5 to 
6 cars L. C. L. annually. 

That Wadena is entitled to be known as a terminal and distributing 
station of the Northern Pacific Railway and Great Northern Railway and 
is entitled to the terminal and distributing rates provided in the order of 
the Commission of September 6, 1906, fixing terminal and distributing rates 
on the line of said railroads. 

It is therefore ordered: 

1st. That Wadena, a station on the line of the Northern Pacific Rail- 
way, in Wadena County, Minnesota, be and the same hereby is declared a 
terminal and distributing station of said railway, and that said Northern 
Pacific Railway Company give said station the terminal rates between it 
and other stations on the line of its railroad in this state provided for and 
given by the order of the Commission of September 6, 1906, to the stations 
of St. Paul, Minneapolis, Duluth, Stillwater, St. Cloud, Brainerd, Fergus 
Falls, Moorhead, Crookston and Sauk Center. 

2nd. That Wadena, a station on the line of the Great Northern Rail- 
way in Wadena County, Minnesota, be and the same hereby is declared a 
terminal and distributing station of said railway and that the said Great 
Northern Railway Company give said station the terminal rates between it 
and other stations on the line of its railroad in this state provided for and 
given by the order of the Commission of September 6, 1906, to the stations 
of St. Paul, Minneapolis, Duluth, St. Cloud, Fergus Falls, Moorhead, 
Crookston, Sauk Center and Thief River Falls.

In the order of the Commission in the investigation of the 
merchandise and commodity rates in the State of Minnesota, re- 
ferred to in our annual report for the year ending November 30th, 
1906, on page 25, the Commission made the following note: 

"In case the railway company in putting in the new schedule of rates 
fails to so adjust the 'In' rates as to protect the jobbers at the distributing 
centers other than St. Paul, Minneapolis and Duluth, the Commission will 
undertake to make these adjustments." 

On account of protests, both verbal and otherwise, having been 
made to the Commission by representatives of the distributing cen- 
ters above named, the Commission advised the parties interested 
that a conference would be held between the Commission and the 
representatives of the commercial houses in the Northwest on De- 
cember 8th, 1906, to take into consideration the adjustment of the 
"In" rates to country distributing points which were affected by the 
recent order of the Commission in the maximum rate case. 

The following towns were represented at this hearing, viz. : 
St. Paul, Minneapolis, Duluth, St. Cloud, Sauk Center, Crookston 
and Fargo, and the officers of the following railroad companies 
were also present, Great Northern, Northern Pacific, Minneapolis, 
St. Paul & Sault Ste. Marie and Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul.

Testimony was taken by the official stenographer, which is on 
file with the records in this case, and the hearing adjourned until 
January 16th, 1907, and continued until January 23rd, 1907. 

All parties interested were advised of the hearing in question, 
which commenced on the date specified and lasted for three days, 
during which time a large volume of testimony was taken by official 
stenographer and a number of exhibits filed showing the effect of 
the Commissioners' rates on the industries in question. 

At the close of this hearing oral arguments were made before 
the Commission by H. B. Finch of Crookston, Joseph Bragdon of 
Minneapolis, and Emerson Hadley of the Northern Pacific Railway 
Company, after which the case was taken under advisement by the 
Commission. 

During the time this matter was under investigation, the Com- 
mission had several schedules of its own prepared, showing how 
the towns in question would be affected by the Commissioners' new 
schedule of rates, which, taken in conjunction with the exhibits 
filed and the testimony taken, resulted in the following order being 
issued by the Commission, which was served on the railroad com- 
panies and copies sent to interested parties.

INVESTIGATION OF EXPRESS RATES IN MINNESOTA. 

BEFORE THE RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION OF 
THE STATE OF MINNESOTA. 

In the matter of the investigation of the reasonableness of the tariffs, rates 

and charges of the Express Companies hereinafter named, doing busi- 
ness in the State of Minnesota, on all classes of property carried by 

said companies between stations in said state. 

This matter came before the Commission for hearing May 5, 1906, and 
was continued from time to time, with final hearing February 26, 1907, after 
due notice being given to all the companies affected by this order. The 
several express companies appeared as follows: 

Wells- Fargo— J. D. Ludlow, Traffic Manager; C. W. Stockton, Asst. to 
President. 

National— J. H. Bradley. 

American — J. H. Bradley, Genl. Traffic Manager. 

United States — C. H. Crosby, Vice Prest. and Genl. Manager; M. T. 
Jones, Traffic Manager; J. L. Tate, General Auditor; A. Wygant, General

Great Northern — W. R. Begg, General Solicitor; D. S. Elliott, General 
Manager. 

Western — W. S. Stout, General Manager; S. A. Davis, Superintendent.

The Commission submitted to said companies a schedule of what it 
deemed to be reasonable maximum rates on merchandise carried by the 
express companies between stations in the State of Minnesota on the sev- 
eral lines of railroad over which said companies operate, which schedule is 
hereto annexed, marked Exhibit "A" and made a part of this order, and the 
rates named in said schedule are found by the Commission to be reasonable, 
maximum rates for the transportation of merchandise by each of said 
express companies between stations in the State of Minnesota. 

The above named express companies having agreed to abide by said 
schedule and accept and put the same into effect within forty (40) days 
after the service of this order. 

It Is Therefore Ordered, that the merchandise rates shown by Exhibit 
"A" be and the same are hereby established as reasonable maximum rates 
for the transportation of merchandise by all the express companies above 
named, between all stations on the respective lines operated by them in 
the State of Minnesota, and said companies are hereby required to put 
said rates into effect within forty (40) days after the service of this order. 

In the application of the rates herein specified, the express companies, 
and each of them, shall observe the provisions of Section 2017 of the Re- 
vised Laws of the State of Minnesota for the year 1905, known as the long 
and sort haul clause. 

Each of the express companies are hereby required to keep at each 
station, or office, where it does business in this state, in some convenient 
place in charge of their agent, all their tariffs of rates and charges to- 
gether with the classification affecting rates between stations in Minnesota, 
for the inspection and use of the public during business hours, and shall 
post in some conspicuous place in said station or office where the business 
of said company is done, a notice stating where said schedule can be in- 
spected, and when any change of rates, charges or classification is made 
affecting rates in this state, said company shall post a notice as aforesaid,

EXPRESS MILK AND CREAM RATES. 

On June 28th, 1906, a complaint was received from the Bridge- 
man & Russell Company of Duluth, advising the Commission that 
the Northern Pacific Express Company had advanced its rates on 
milk and cream from different points in Minnesota to Duluth with- 
out the consent of the Commission. 

The matter was taken up at once with the company, which imme- 
diately restored the old rates ; and on November 3rd, 1906, the com- 
pany made application to the Commission to make a change in rates 
on these commodities and enclosed copy of a proposed schedule. 

In the meantime several complaints were received from milk 
and cream shippers and receivers on the line of the old St. Paul & 
Duluth railroad. 



RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. 33 

On the above date the Commission advised the express com- 
pany and all parties interested that in order to do justice in this 
matter a hearing would take place at the office of the Commission 
on November ioth, 1906. 

On November ioth, pursuant to notice, the hearing was held, 
at which a number of milk and cream shippers and centralizers from 
St. Paul, Minneapolis, Brainerd, Duluth and Wadena appeared and 
opposed the adoption of the proposed tariff in question and submit- 
ted a schedule which they hoped the Commission would put in effect, 
to apply to all the express companies. 

Testimony was taken by official stenographer; and the Com- 
mision decided that in view of the facts that developed at the above 
hearing it would be necessary to call in all the other express com- 
panies doing business in this state for the purpose of agreeing on a 
uniform basis of rates on these commodities, which should apply to 
all the express companies. 

The application of the Northern Express Company to put in 
effect their proposed tariff was denied by the Commission pending 
further investigation. 

The Commission at once proceeded to obtain milk and cream 
tariffs used in various other states, and also prepared several scales 
of milk and cream rates for the purpose of determining what would 
be reasonable rates on these commodities. 

On February 13th, 1907, a notice was sent out for a hearjng on 
February 27th to milk and cream shippers and receivers in St. Paul, 
Minneapolis, Duluth, Eagle Bend, Alden, Windom, Crookston, 
Olivia, Maple Plain, Browndale, Plummer, Stark, Erskine, Zum- 
brota, Wadena, Brainerd and Rush City; but this was not sent to 
the express officials for the reason that they were all to appear on 
the 26th of February for the purpose of settling the question of 
the express rates in this state; and this hearing was made a con- 
tinuation of the same. 

During this week some hundreds of letters and postal cards were 
received from shippers and receivers of milk and cream in the State 
of Minnesota protesting against any advance in the rates, while 
others, representing the country creameries advocated that the rates 
on these commodities be advanced instead of lowered. 

On February 27th, 1907, pursuant to notice, the hearing was 
held, at which all the traffic officials of the express companies were 
present, together with a large number of shippers of milk and 
cream, a number of whom appeared as witnesses. Tcstimonv was 



34 TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

taken by official stenographer, and the hearing continued for three 
days, at the close of which the Commission took the matter under 
advisement, and on April 13th, 1907, the following order and ''Ex- 
hibit A" was sent out to all the express companies and other parties 
interested in the proceedings.

APPLICATION FOR EXEMPTION FROM MERCHANDISE 
RATES ORDER OF SEPT. 7, 1906. 

CANADIAN NORTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY. 

Upon the issuance by the Commission of its order of September 
7. 1906, establishing a schedule of reasonable maximum merchan- 
dise rates, the Canadian Northern Railway Company, which oper- 
ates a portion of its line in Minnesota territory between Beaudette 
and the International boundary, filed an application for exemption 
from the rates established by the Commissioners' order on the 
ground that the new rates would conflict with and disturb the uni- 
formity of the existing rates in force on the. company's lines from 
the head of the lakes to the western border of Manitoba, of which 
the Minnesota link forms a part. Accompanying the application 
was an abstract showing the gross earnings on merchandise freight 
for a period covering several months, under Tariff No. 55, subject 
tc the Canadian classification, and the gross earnings which would 
have resulted under the proposed Minnesota Merchandise Tariff 
subject to the Western classification, indicating a slight reduction of 
revenue under the Canadian tariff as compared with the revenue 
which would have been derived under the Minnesota tariff. The 
company expressed no objection to the publication of the Minne- 
sota rates from a revenue standpoint but simply desired, if possible, 
to maintain uniformity of rates along their whole line. 

After careful investigation and consideration, the Commission, 
on the first day of February, 1907, granted the application by sus- 
pending the operation of its order so far as it applied to the Canadian 
Northern Railway Company, until the further notice of the Com- 
mission, reserving the right to require the company to publish and 
observe the schedule provided for in the Commissioners' order at 
anv time when deemed necessary.

APPLICATIONS FOR EXEMPTION FROM THE PROVIS- 
IONS OF CHAPTER 232, GENERAL LAWS OF 
1907, RELATING TO FREIGHT RATES. 

A number of railway companies filed petitions with the Com- 
mission for exemption from the provisions of Chapter 232, General 
Laws of 1907, which went into effect June 1st, 1907, being an act 
which prescribed maximum rates for the transportation in carload 
lets of the principal commodities carried between stations in the 
State of Minnesota. The companies referred to are the following : 

Minneapolis & Rainy River Railway Co. 

Minneapolis, Red Lake & Manitoba Railway Company. 

Minnesota & International Railway Company. 

Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad Co. 

Duluth & Northeastern Railroad Co. 

Relief was granted in each of these cases, and a detailed report 
of the proceedings and disposition of each case is hereto appended. 

The authority conferred upon the Commission is provided in 
Section 5, Chapter 232, G. L. 1907, and reads as follows: 

"This act shall not in any manner affect the power or authority of the 
Railroad and Warehouse Commission, except that no duty shall rest upon the 
Railroad and Warehouse Commission to enforce any rates specifically fixed 
by this or any other statute of this state. Whenever, in a proceeding regularly 
pending before the Railroad and Warehouse Commission, it shall be made 
to appear to the satisfaction of said commission that the rates herein pre- 
scribed are unreasonable, it may, by order, fix higher or lower rates for 
the transportation of any of the commodities herein mentioned over the 
line of any railroad in this state, and such rates, when so fixed shall super- 
sede the rates herein prescribed upon said line of railroad, and shall be 
enforced as prescribed by the law relating to such orders, but until such 
order shall have been made by said Railroad and Warehouse Commission 
the rates herein prescribed shall be the exclusive legal maximum rates for 
the transportation of the commodities herein enumerated between points 
within this state." 

MINNEAPOLIS AND RAINY RIVER RAILWAY COMPANY. 

On the 4th day of June, 1907, the above named company filed 
a petition in which it was represented among other tilings that the 
line of railway of said petitioner is constructed and operated through 
a new and sparsely settled territory in the county of Itasca, State of 
Minnesota, and does not run from or to any large or important 
cities or villages, and for that reason its traffic is lighter and nn- 
remunerative, its gross receipts for the year ending June 30, 1905, 
from all sources not being sufficient to pay the operating expenses 
of its line of railway* and that the interest charges and taxes have 
created and did create a large deficit, all as shown by the report of 



38 TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

petitioner now on file with the Commission; said petitioner further 
states that under the schedule of rates now in force over its line, 
the gross receipts for the current year have not been sufficient to 
pay the running expenses and that said petitioner has lost money in 
the operation of its line every month since the 1st day of January, 
1907, up to and including the 30th day of April, 1907. 

It was further set forth that said petitioner has complied with 
the requirements of the act of the legislature of the state, passed at 
its last session and has reduced its passenger rate to two cents per 
mile as by law required. 

That the rates in the schedule annexed to the said petition and 
marked Exhibit "A" are fair and reasonable rates for the carriage 
of freight on said petitioner's line of railway and the rates set 
forth by the act of the legislature, known as Chapter 232, G. L. 
1907, are unreasonably low and confiscatory as applied to said peti- 
tioner, and unless it is relieved from the operation thereof, its line 
cannot be operated and its investment will be lost. Said petitioner 
therefore prays for an order of the Commissiorf declaring the rates 
in the legislative act referred to, unreasonable as applied to said 
petitioner and. that its present rates are fair and reasonable. 

Thereupon the Commission issued its order that a hearing on 
said petition be had at their office in the State Capitol at St. Paul, 
Minnesota, on Tuesday, the 25th day of June, 1907, at ten o'clock 
in the forenoon, at which time and place all interested parties would 
be entitled to be heard and urge any objections they might have to 
the granting of the prayer of the petitioners. Notice of such hear- 
ing was published on the 13th and 20th days of June in the "Big 
Fork Settler," a weekly newspaper published at the Village of Big 
Fork, Itasca county, Minnesota, and on the 15th and 22nd days of 
June, 1907, in the "Itasca News," a weekly newspaper published at 
the Village of Deer River in said county of Itasca, State of Minne- 
sota. 

The hearing came on at the time and place appointed. Besides 
the Commission there were present. A. Y. Merrill, General Attor- 
ney for the applicant company, and F. A. Bill, its Secretary and 
Treasurer, who also appeared as a witness. Mr. H. D. Horton/of 
the Village of Big Fork appeared as a witness in objection to the 
granting of the petition. 

Considerable evidence was submitted of an oral and documen- 
tary character, in addition to which the Commission requested that 
certain further statistics be filed by the petitioners. 



RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. 39 

Thereupon the hearing was closed and the matter taken under 
advisement. 

On the 16th day of September, 1907, the Commission made its 
conclusions and order in the case as follows : 

(order.) 

BEFORE THE RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION OF

way Company to have the rates prescribed in the act of the legisla- 
ture of the State of Minnesota, entitled "An act relating to Railroad

the Railroad and Warehouse Commission," which said act is known as 
Chap. 232 of the General Laws of Minnesota for the year 1907, declared 
unreasonable as applicable to said railway, and for an order fixing the 
rates now in force thereon as reasonable and legal maximum rates in 
the transportation of comodities over said line. 

This matter came on for hearing before the Commission on the 25th

After hearing the evidence, and due consideration thereof, the Com- 
mission find: 

1st: The Minneapolis & Rainy River Railway Company is a corpora- 
tion organized under the laws of the State of Minnesota on the 20th day of 
July, 1904, and commenced business as such corporation on the 1st day of 
August thereafter, and ever since said date has been and now is engaged 
in the business of operating a railroad in the State of Minnesota as a com- 
mon carrier of freight and passengers from the Village of Deer River, in 
the County of Itasca, in said state, to the village of Big Fork in said county 
with a certain branch line from Jessie Junction to Bass Lake in said County 
of Itasca. 

2nd: That the petitioner established and filed with the Commission a 
rate or tariff known as Local Distance Tariff No. 2, issued on the 1st day of 
August, 1906, containing the rates for carriage of different kinds of freight 
over its said line of railroad. 

3rd: That said railroad is operated through a sparsely settled country 
and has no large terminals or important cities or villages along the line of 
its road. 

4th: That the total gross earnings for the year ending December 31st, 
1906, were $134, 884.06, and the total operating expenses for the same period. 
$128,298.49, exclusive of interest and taxes; that the approximate cost of 
said road is about $800,000.00; that of the gross earnings, $8,794.79, was from 
passengers; that the greater portion of the earnings of said company is 
from the hauling of logs; that the company has accepted and put in force 
the two-cent passenger rate required by Chapter 97 of the Laws of 1907. 

5th: The Commission find that the rates contained in "Exhibit A," 
attached to the petition herein are reasonable rates for the transportation 
of articles therein named. 

It is Therefore Ordered, that this petitioner be relieved from the pro- 
visions of Chapter 232 of the General Laws of 1907, and that the rates now 
on file in the office of the Commission, known as Local Distance Tariff

public notice and a hearing on the 27th and 28th days of May, 1907, 
at which evidence in support of the petition was submitted, no one

(order.) 

BEFORE TTIE RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION OF 
THE STATE OF MINNESOTA. 

In the matter of the application of the Minneapolis, Red Lake & Manitoba 
Railway Company to have the rates prescribed in the act of the legisla- 
ture of the State of Minnesota, entitled "An act relating to Railroad 
freight rates in the State of Minnesota and defining certain duties of 
the Railroad and Warehouse Commission." recently enacted by the 
legislature of said state declared unreasonable as applicable to said rail- 
way, and for an order fixing the rates now in force thereon as reason- 
able and legal maximum rates in the transportation of commodities

The above mentioned petition of the Minneapolis, Red Lake & Mani- 
toba Railway Company came on to be heard by the Railroad & Ware-

appearing to oppose; and it appearing that notice of said hearing was duly 
given by the publication of said order, as therein directed, and it also appear- 
ing from the evidence adduced on the part of the said railway company, to the 
satisfaction of said Commission, that the rates prescribed by the act of the 
legislature above referred to, the same being Chapter 232, General Laws of 
1907, as applied to said railway company, are unreasonable, and that the rates 
heretofore established by said railway company, and now in force, and 
which are as shown by Exhibit "A" hereto annexed, are just and reasonable 
upon the line of said petitioner. 

Tt is Ordered, that the rates for the transportation of any of the com- 
modities mentioned in said Chapter 2,*52 over the line of the said Minne- 
apolis. Red Lake & Manitoba Railway Company shall from and after the 
first day of June. 1907. and until the further order of the said Railroad and

MINNESOTA AND INTERNATIONAL RAILWAY COMPANY. 

The above named company in June, 1907, filed its petition for 
similar relief from the provisions of Chapter 232, General Laws of 
1907, relating to commodity rates in the State of Minnesota. The 
usual formal proceedings consisting of a public hearing and the 
taking of evidence followed, resulting in the granting of said peti- 
tion. The premises from which the decision of the Commission 
was reached are set forth in its findings and order rendered on June 
7th, 1907, as follows: 

(order.) 

BEFORE THE RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION OF 
THE STATE OF MINNESOTA. 

In the matter of the petition of the Minnesota & International Railway 

Company to be relieved from the commodity rates established by 

Chapter 232, Laws of Minnesota, 1907. 

It appearing to the Commission that the line of railway of the above 
named petitioner extends from Brainerd north to the Big Fork River 
through an undeveloped portion of the state, and that the business, both 
freight and passenger, is very light as compared with the older lines of 
road: 

It further appearing that stockholders of all the important railways in 
the state, excepting the Duluth & Iron Range Railroad and the Duluth, 
Missabe & Northern Railway, have commenced proceedings in the Federal 
Court and have procured a temporary injunction against the enforcement 
by the companies of the rates specified by Chapter 232 of the Laws of Min- 
nesota for 1907, which would have become effective on the 1st of June, 
1907, no such suit having been brought against the petitioner; but \\t is 
unjust to require it to put in such legislative rates so long as the other rail- 
roads are prevented from doing so. 

It is Therefore Ordered, that the Minnesota & International Railway 
Company, until the -further order of this Commission, be allowed to con- 
tinue its rates on grain, live stock, lumber and coal that were in force on 
the 31st day of May, 1907. 

That this order may be revoked by the Commission at any time by 
notification to the petitioner of such revocation. 

By the Commission.

CHICAGO, BURLINGTOX AND QUIXCY RAILROAD COMPANY. 

On June 7th, 1907, a petition was received from the above 
named company setting forth among other things that said petitioner 
transacts in the State of Minnesota almost exclusively interstate 
business and that there is substantially no business conducted by it 
which can be affected by the provisions of Chapter 232, General 
Laws of 1907; that said petitioner is a connecting carrier with the 
railroads extending through the State of Minnesota, and is in- 



42 TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

formed arid believes that such railroads have been enjoined in va- 
rious proceedings pending in the United States courts from adopt- 
ing or enforcing the rates provided in said chapter, and that it is 
unreasonable and impractical for said petitioner to adopt or put in 
fcrce the commodity rates provided for in said Chapter 232, pend- 
ing such litigation; said petitioner therefore prays for relief from 
such provisions for such time as may seem proper to the Commis- 
sion. 

After due consideration of the petition herein referred to, the 
Commission made its order in the matter as hereto appended : 

(order.) 

BEFORE THE RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION OF 
THE STATE OF MINNESOTA. 

In the matter of the commodity rates provided for in Chapter 232 of the 

Laws of 1907. 

On reading and filing the petition of the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy 
Railroad Company, relative to the commodity rates as provided in Chapter 
232 of the Laws of 1907, and it appearing to this Commission that such 
rates are as to said company for the time being unreasonable. 

It is Hereby Ordered, that the rates on said railroad for the com- 
modities described in said Chapter 232, of the Laws of 1907, of the State 
State of Minnesota be and the same are hereby fixed at the rates specified 
for said commodities in the tariffs of said Railway Company in force 
prior to June 1, 1907, until the further order of this Commission in refer- 
ence thereto. This order may be vacated by the Commission at any time 
without notice.

DULUTII & NORTHEASTERN RAILROAD CO. 

The hearing in the matter of the application, Nov. 25, 1907, of 
the Duluth & Northeastern R. R. Co., for extemption from the pro- 
visions of Chapter 232, G. L. 1907, came on pursuant to notice at 
ten o'clock A. M. Commissioner Staples was present for the Com- 
mission. H. G. Stevens, Auditor of the company, and H. Olden- 
burg of Carlton, Attorney, were also present. 

Mr. Stevens made a general statement regarding the business of 
the road, particularly with reference to its earnings and operating 
expenses, showing that the company had lost money even on the 
rates existing prior to the enactment of Chapter 232, G. L. 1907, 
and that under the new legislative rates the deficit was still greater; 
that there was no bonded indebtedness, the capital stock was $500,- 
000.00, all of which had been issued and was held by the company

or its officers. F. Weyerhauser is President of the company. The 
road was built for logging purposes, and has been and is used for 
this purpose exclusively. The company has always carried logs for 
other companies, and all persons pay same rates whether freight or 
passenger, without preference or discrimination in any way. 

Reports were filed by Mr. Stevens showing in detail the re- 
sources and liabilities of the company up to the close of September, 
1907, and after a careful inquiry into all details by the Commission 
the hearing was closed. The Commission thereupon declared the 
application of the company granted. 

DEFINITION OF THE WORDS "TERMINAL POINTS" IN 
RECIPROCAL DEMURRAGE LAW. 

Chapter 23, G. L. 1907, known as the "Reciprocal Demurrage 
Law," requires carriers to furnish cars ordered, within forty-eight 
hours thereafter at "terminal points" and within seventy-two hours 
at "intermediate points." 

A question arose among the railway officials as to the proper 
construction of the words "terminal points," that is, as to whether 
the term was intended to include only Minneapolis, St. Paul and 
Duluth, or should embrace, in addition thereto, all division terminals. 
In order to remove any doubt in the premises and to secure uni- 
formity of action among the different railway companies, the Com- 
mission was asked to take the question under consideration and 
determine what, in its opinion, is the intended meaning of the law on 
this question. 

The matter was referred to the Attorney General for his opinion 
as to the meaning of the term "terminal points," who held that the 
definition of the term referred to was not, in his judgment, a legal 
question, but should be arrived at by a practical construction of the 
act on the part of the Commission after consultation with the rail- 
way companies affected. 

After due notice, a conference was held at the office of the Com- 
mission on August 1st, 1907, when the question was thoroughly 
discussed between the Commission and the traffic officials of the 
larger roads, after which the meeting adjourned with the under- 
standing that the Commission would render its decision in the mat- 
ter at an early day. On August 21st, after mature consideration. 
the various railway companies were advised that in the judgment 
cf the Commission, the most practical construction that can be 



44 TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

placed on the words "terminal points" is that they refer only to the 
large terminal points, Minneapolis, St. Paul, Minnesota Transfer 
and Duluth. The Commission therefore held this to be the evi- 
dent meaning and intent of the statute and the companies were re- 
quested to govern themselves accordingly. 



INSPECTION OF NEW RAILWAY LINES. 

BIG FORK AND INTERNATIONAL FALLS LINE. 
NORTHERN PACIFIC RAILWAY. 

A communication was received from the Northern Pacific Rail- 
way Company on July 12, 1907, calling the attention of the Com- 
mission to the fact that a portion of the new line which said com- 
pany was constructing from Big Falls to International Falls, had 
been completed, namely, that portion from Big Falls to Little Fork ; 
that the company was in shape to handle business between the two 
latter named points and the people of the country along said portion 
of the road were anxious to use it, although the entire line to Inter- 
rational Falls would not be completed for at least sixty days; that 
the company desired to accommodate the people and therefore ap- 
plied for authority to operate the finished portion of the line. 

The application was granted by the Commission and the com- 
pany notified that upon filing and publishing its tariffs, it could 
proceed to open and operate the said lines to Little Fork. 

In November, 1907, the Commission was further advised that 
the remaining portion of the line between Little Fork and the term- 
inus at International Falls, a distance of 34.1 miles had been com- 
pleted and would be ready for operation as soon as it had been 
officially inspected by the Commission. 

The inspection was made on the 26th day of November and in- 
cluded all that portion of the line between Big Falls and Interna- 
tional Falls. The Commission found that while considerable work 
would be necessary to put the track in perfect condition, the road- 
bed was iti reasonably good condition for operation during the win- 
ter months and permission was given the company to operate the 
line during the winter months with the understanding that the addi- 
tional work necessary to perfect' the condition of the roadbed would 
bo done in the spring. 

The operation of this new line op^ns up tlr" "t^h service to In- 
ternational Falls both from the Twin Cities and Duluth.

FERMOY TO KELLY LAKE. GREAT NORTHERN RAILWAY. 

On August 20, 1907, notice was filed by the Gteat Northern 
Railway Company that its new extension from Fermoy to Kelly 
Lake was about completed and ready for their 'official inspection. 
The Commission fixed upon Monday, September 2nd, 1907, for the 
inspection of said line, pursuant to which Commissioner Mills made 
a careful examination of the road in question and found the same in 
excellent condition for operating, being fully up to legal require- 
ments. 

The company was notified that it would be necessary, in accord- 
ance with the provisions of Chapter 260, General Laws of 1907, to 
file maps, profiles, with table of grade, curvature and mileage, also 
statements of other characteristics of the road, with a statement 
showing the complete cost thereof, before a certificate of approval 
could issue. 

The company complied with all these necessary requirements 
except as to the statement of cost, which it was alleged would require 
a few weeks for completion. 

The Commission thereupon granted temporary permission to 
operate said line, with the understanding that the permanent permit 
would be issued upon the filing of the statement in detail of the cost 
of the road. 

ABANDONMENT OF RAILROADS. 

Section 2039, Revised'Laws of 1905, as amended by Section 5, 
Chapter 261, General Laws of 1907, provides that a railway com- 
pany desiring to abandon or close for traffic any portion of its line, 
siding, sidetrack, spur or other railway track, shall first make ap- 
plication to the Commission in writing. Before passing upon such 
application the Commission shall fix a time and place for hearing, 
and require such notice thereof to be given as it deems reasonable. 
Upon the hearing, the Commission shall ascertain the facts and 
make findings thereon, and if such facts satisfy the Commission that 
the proposed abandonment or closing for traffic will not result in 
substantial injury to the public, they may allow the same, otherwise 
it shall be denied; or, if the facts warrant it, the application may be 
granted in a modified form. 

Applications under the above provisions were filed by the Min- 
neapolis, St. Paul and Sault Ste. Marie Railway Company and 



46 TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

Minnesota & North Wisconsin Railroad Company, a recital of the 
proceedings in these cases being hereto appended. 

APPLICATION BY THE MINNEAPOLIS, ST. PAUL & SAULT STE MARIE 
RAILWAY CO. FOR AN ORDER OF THE COMMISSION AUTHORIZING 
THE ABOVE NAMED COMPANY TO ABANDON AND DISCONTINUE 
CERTAIN PORTIONS OF ITS RAILWAY OWING TO REVISIONS OF 
GRADE AND ALIGNMENT OF SAID RAILWAY. 

On August 25th, 1907, the Commission received a communica- 
tion from the above named railway company, representing that it 
had caused to be surveyed and located certain important changes in 
its line of railway in the State of Minnesota, extending from a point 
east of Rockford in the County of Wright to .a point west of Wen- 
dell in the County of Grant; that the object of said changes was the 
improvement in the grade and alignment of the said railway made 
necessary by the increased demands of traffic; that all of said im- 
provements involved the expenditure of a very large amount of 
money, but that such expenditures were justified by the increase in 
the efficiency of said railway. 

That in order to carry out this improvement and secure better 
grades in the vicinity of Wendell, it was necessary to locate the 
improved line through said village about 1500 feet distant from the 
line as originally built, and to change the location of said railway 
between Mile Post 163 east of Wendell to Mile Post 173 west of 
Wendell, as shown on plat attached, marked "A;" that the im- 
proved line in the vicinity of Wendell and through said place - is 
about to be completed and will soon be ready for traffic. 

It was further represented that there is no reason for maintain- 
ing and operating more than one line of railway between said mile 
posts or through the Village of Wendell; that said village has a 
population not to exceed four hundred, and the . situation of its 
business interests with respect to the changes would compare favor- 
ably- with most other places in Minnesota or elsewhere, and that 
outside of said village the changes in said railway could not in 
any way affect any private interest. 

Wherefore, the petitioner prays for an order of the Commission 
authorizing it to abandon and discontinue the use of said original 
railway between Mile Posts 163 and 173 wherever the same does 
not coincide with said re-located line. 

Subsequent to the filing of the foregoing petition, a supplemen- 



RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. 47 

tary petition was sent in covering the revision of the said line of 
railway embraced in the following described sections : 

1. The section near Rockford extending from a point about' 
riidway between Mile Posts 24 and 25 to a point near Mile Post 
29, as shown on plat attached and marked Exhibit "A." 

2. The section embraced in said revised track known as the 
Barrett revision, extending from a point midway between Mile Posts 
146 and 147 to a point near Mile Post 153, as shown on plat at- 
tached, marked Exhibit "B." 

3. The section embraced in said revised track known as the 
Kensington revision, extending -from a point midway between mile 
posts 136 and 137, to a point near mile post 145, as shown on plat 
attached, marked Exhibit "C." 

That all of said work of revision is drawing to completion and 
it is desired to put into operation all of said new track and to aban- 
don the original track covered by said revisions as shown by said Ex- 
hibits ; that there is no reason for maintaining and operating more 
than one line between the points named and no business interests 
will be affected by the abandonment of the original line. 

Wherefore the petitioners pray for an order authorizing the 
abandonment of its original line of railway between the point of 
beginning and ending of the revision in each section of road as de- 
scribed in and shown by said Exhibits A, B and C. 

The Commission, in company with its official engineer, made an 
inspection of the sections of railway embraced in the foregoing peti- 
tions and found that the alterations and re-locations in the said line 
would result in great improvement in the service of the road by 
reason of reductions in grade and elimination of curves and that no 
public or private interest would be seriously affected by authorizing 
the abandonment of the original trackage. 

The only objection that came to the Commission was from a few 
citizens of the village of Wendell, who felt that the business inter- 
ests of the village would be injuriously affected by the proposed 
change in location of the station building. Thereupon, the Commis- 
sion, having given previous notice, visited Wendell station on the 
3rd day of October, 1907, for the purpose of giving its citizens an 
opportunity to be heard in the matter. A number of the village 
residents were present whose views and sentiments were presented 
by Mr. F. A. Boyd, a merchant of Wendell. The result of the hear- 
ing as reported by the Commission indicated no disposition on the 
part of the citizens of Wendell to object to the proposed change, the 



48 TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

necessity for which seemed to be generally recognized, but some 
minor improvements were advocated, such as improvement of the 
road and the construction of a substantial sidewalk between the old 
and new locations, the expense of same to be borne by the company. 
These conditions were regarded as entirely reasonable by the Com- 
mission and its recommendations were made accordingly to the com- 
pany which accepted and agreed to observe the same. 

The order of the Commission in the "Wendell" case follows 
herewith : 

BEFORE THE RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION OF 
THE STATE OF MINNESOTA. 

In the matter of the application of the Minneapolis, St. Paul & Sault Ste. 
Marie Railway Company to abandon its original line of railroad be- 
tween Mile Posts 163 and 173 in Grant County. 

A petition having been filed by said railroad company, setting forth 
among other things that in a revision of its grade it became necessary to 
relocate its line between Mile Post 163, east of the Village of Wendell in 
Grant County, to Mile Post 173,, west of Wendell, and Commissioner Staples, 
having made a personal examination of" the .road proposed to be abandoned, 
and having heard the people of Wendell in regard thereto and made a 
report thereon, a copy of which report is attached to this order and made 
a part thereof, and the said railroad company having accepted and agreed 
to the conditions stated in said report, and the Commission deeming the 
revision of grade of great public benefit and that it is not necessary to 
operate the old and the new line. 

It is Therefore Ordered, that the Minneapolis, St. Paul & Sault Ste. 
Marie Railway Company be and hereby is given permission upon compli- 
ance with the recommendations of Commissioner Staples to abandon its 
original line between Mile Post 163 and Mile Post 173 in this state.

THE STATE OF MINNESOTA. 

In the matter of the petition of the Minneapolis. St. Paul & Sault Ste. Marie 
Railway Company for authority to abandon certain portions of its 
track on account of revision of its grade in Minnesota. 
The Minneapolis, St. Paul & Sault Ste Marie Railway Company, hav- 
ing petitioned the Railroad and Warehouse Commission of the State of 
Minnesota, alleging: 

That in the fall and winter of 1905 it caused to be surveyed and located 
certain important changes in its line of railway in the State of Minnesota, 
extending from a point east of Rockford to a point west of Wendell. 

That the object of said changes was an improvement in the grade and 
alignment of the railway, made necessary by the increased demands of 
travel. 



RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. 49 

That the revision near Rockford extends from a point about midway 
between mile posts twenty-four and twenty-five to a point near mile post 
twenty-nine; that said revision is shown upon the plat hereto attached 
marked Exhibit "A," the original track in white and the revised track in red. 

That another section embraced in said revised track is known as the 
Barrett revision, extending from a point about midway between mile posts 
one hundred forty-? ix and one hundred forty-seven to a point near mile post 
one hundred fifty-three; that said revision is shown on the plat hereto at- 
tached marked Exhibit "B," the original track in white and the revised track 
in red. 

That another section embraced in said revised track is known as the 
Kensington revision, extending from a point about midway between mile 
posts one hundred thirty-six and one hundred thirty-seven to a point near 
mile post one hundred forty-five; that said revision is shown upon the plat 
hereto attached and marked Exhibit "C," the original track in white and 
the revised track in red. 

That the alterations and re-locations in the line of said railway were 
submitted to the Board of Directors of your petitioner in the month of 
March, 1906, and were duly approved, and from that time until the present 
said work has been prosecuted as vigorously as the weather conditions 
would permit. That some sections of the re-located line other than those 
referred to above were completed and put into operation, and the original 
track involved was abandoned prior to the enactment of the statute giving 
the Railroad and Warehouse Commission jurisdiction over the abandon- 
ment of railway tracks. That all of said work of revision is drawing to 
completion and your petitioner will desire to put into operation all of said 
new track and to abandon the original track covered by the three revisions 
heretofore referred to and as shown by said exhibits, except where it may 
desire to retain a portion of said original track to be used as a passing 
track or siding to the revised line. That there is no reason for maintain- 
ing and operating more than one line of railway between the points cov- 
ered by said revision, and that no business interests will be affected by the 
abandonment of the original line. 

Wherefore, your petitioner respectfully prays for the order of the Com- 
mission authorizing the abandonment of its original line of railway between 
the point of beginning and ending of the revision in each section of road 
as heretofore described and as shown by said Exhibits A, B and C. 

After due consideration of said petition, the Commission being fully 
advised in the premises, It Is Ordered that the prayer of the petitioner be 
granted and that said railway company be and the same hereby is author- 
ized to abandon its original line of railway between the points of beginning 
and ending of the revision of each section of road as described and shown 
by Exhibits A, B and C attached to and part of the original petition on file 
in the office of the Railroad and Warehouse Commission.

APPLICATION TO CLOSE, TEMPORARILY. THE ALDEN LAKE BRANCH 
OF THE MINNESOTA & NORTH WISCONSIN RAILROAD. 

An application was filed Oct. 28th, 1907, by the above-named 
company for permission to close for traffic, until the further order 
of the Commission, that portion of its line called the Alden Lake 
Branch, in which it was set forth that said branch was constructed 
as a spur of said railroad to reach the shores of Alden Lake, for the 



50 TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

purpose of transporting logs and forest products from the Cloquet 
Kiver to its main line; that there has never been any other busi- 
ness or traffic over said line, except, the hauling of the company's 
logs and timber, as no settlers had located on land tributary to said 
road, nor was it likely that there would be any settlement for some 
time to come. The application was therefore filed to secure per- 
mission for temporary discontinuance of operation of the said 
branch until the settlement and growth of the country tributary 
thereto justified, in the judgment of the Commission, a re-opening 
of same for traffic. 

The company was notified that an official inspection of the line 
would be made by a representative of the Commission on Thursday, 
October 31st, 1907, and pursuant thereto Commissioner Ira B. 
Mills made a careful examination of the line and its tributary con- 
ditions on the date mentioned, resulting in the following order : 

BEFORE THE RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION OF 
THE STATE OF MINNESOTA. 

In the matter of the petition of the Minnesota and North Wisconsin Rail- 
road Company for permission to close for traffic the Alden Lake branch 
of said road. 

Upon the filing of the petition herein. Commissioner Mills made a per- 
sonal examination of the line of road of the petitioner called the Alden 
Lake Branch, same being a spur extending from Alden Junction in the 
northwest corner of Section thirty- four (34), Township fifty-three (53), 
Range thirteen (13) west, to the shores of Alden Lake in the southwest 
quarter of Section twenty (20) of the same town and range, and also ex- 
tending in a shorter spur from the above named spur track in the southwest 
quarter of Section twenty-nine (29) to the southeast quarter of Section 
twenty-two (22), in the same town and range to the shores of Gallagher 
Lake. 

After examination of said line, the Commissioner made the following re- 
port: That he had been over said line, and that all the timber that was 
available for market had been cut off and that there were no settlers tribu- 
tary to said line; and that at the present time and probably for sometime to 
come there will be no business for this line of road. 

It is Therefore Ordered, that permission be given to said railroad com- 
pany to temporarily close for traffic the line of road above described until 
the further order of the Commission.

INCREASES IX CAPITAL STOCK. 

Under the provisions of Section 2872. Revised Laws of 1905, 
any railroad corporation before it shall increase its capital stock 
shall apply to the Railroad and Warehouse Commission, in writing, 
setting forth the amount of the proposed increase and the purpose 



RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. 5 1 

for which it is desired. The Commission shall then fix a time and 
place for hearing and require such notice to be given as they may 
deem reasonable. They shall make findings of the facts established 
and allow or disallow the proposed increase accordingly. 

The provisions of Section 2872 do not essentially differ from 
those of the General Statutes of 1894. By virtue of these laws there 
have been several cases before the Commission during the past 
seven years, wherein applications for permission to increase capital 
stock have, after due proceedings, been granted. 

Prior to the 1905 revision of the statutes corporations incorpor- 
ated under special charters, like the Great Northern Ry. Co., were 
exempt from applying to the Commission to increase their capital 
stock by Chapter 43, of the General Laws of 1903. 

This statute having been repealed by the Revised Laws, the 
Great Northern directors voted an increase of $60,000,000 of capital 
stock. 

In December, 1906, the Attorney General commenced an action 
in the District Court to restrain this issue as a violation of the pro- 
visions of Section 2872, of the Revised Laws of 1905. 

The District Court issued an injunction holding that the Com- 
pany had no right to issue this stock without first obtaining the 
consent of the Commission. The case was carried to the Supreme 
Court by the company, and it was there held that Section 2872 was 
in violation of the Constitution of the state in that it delegated legis- 
lative powers to the Commission. The court recognized the right 
of the legislature to prescribe the amount of capital stock a rail- 
road corporation could issue, the terms, conditions and the purpose 
for which it could issue stock, and the right to require before issu- 
ing the stock that the Commission inquire into the facts that were 
made necessary by the legislature to authorize the issue, and if it 
found that such facts existed to authorize the stock, and if it found 
that the facts did not exist to deny the right to issue it; but the 
legislature could not delegate to the Commission the right to say on 
what terms and conditions the railroad company should issue stock ; 
those conditions must be prescribed by the legislature itself. 

GROSS EARNINGS TAX LITIGATION. 

When the gross earnings tax on the railways of Minnesota was 
increased in 1905 from three to four per cent, the Great Northern 
Railroad Company opposed the increased rate as inapplicable to that 



52 TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

part of the road covered by the charter of the Minnesota and Pa- 
cific Company in the early days, it being alleged that this company 
received in 1857 a charter from the Territory of Minnesota contain- 
ing among others a provision that said company should never be 
required to pay more than three per cent on its gross earnings. The 
company in time became bankrupt and the property had passed suc- 
cessively to the St. Paul & Pacific Ry Co.., St. Paul, Minneapolis & 
Manitoba Ry. Co., and in 1890 was acquired by the Great North- 
ern Ry. Co. The lines covered by the charter referred to include 
the road from St. Paul to Breckenridge via Willmar and from 
St. Paul to St. Vincent via St. Cloud and Fergus Falls. 

At the time the gross earnings tax for 1905 became due, the 
Great Northern Company paid into the state treasury its tax upon 
the basis of three per cent declining to pay the additional one per 
cent, claiming exemption from the increase by virtue of its rights 
under the original charter. The Attorney General commenced an 
action in January last to enforce payment of the full rate, and the 
case is still in the courts awaiting settlement. The amount of tax 
unpaid and in dispute for 1905 is $120,737.38 and for 1906, $126,- 
7/6-33- A new installment will soon be due from the tax certified 
for 1907. 

A similar question arose in 1897 as to the proper rate of taxa- 
tion to be certified as payable by the Chicago Great Western Rail- 
way Company. 

Under the provisions of a special charter granted in the year 
1854 and renewed in 1856 to the Minnesota and Northwestern 
Railroad Company, a parent company of the Great Western, that 
company obligated itself to pay or cause to be paid annually there- 
after two per cent of its gross earnings as taxes. The Chicago 
Great Western Ry. Co. in 1893, therefore, objected to the increase 
i:i its rate of taxation to three per cent, on the ground that the 
charter provisions referred to constitute a contract between the Min- 
nesota & Northwestern Railroad Company and its successors on 
the one part and the Territory and State of Minnesota on the other, 
equally binding on both parties and not subject to change by either 
without the consent of the other. In its decision the Commission 
did not assent to this proposition but left it open subject to future 
consideration by the legislature and the courts, simply holding that 
until the original acts are amended or modified the company cannot 
be required to pay a higher rate than two per cent. 



RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. 53 

The act of 1905 increasing the tax on gross earnings, to four 
per cent applies to all railroad companies and, in the opinion of 
the Commission, is sufficient legislation to authorize the collection 
of the four per cent tax. The Commission has, since that time, 
certified four per cent as the taxes due from Chicago Great West- 
ern Company. The company has, however, resisted the payment 
of more than two per cent and an action is now pending in the 
courts to enforce collection of the full tax. 

INSPECTION OF TRACK SCALES USED BY COMMON 

CARRIERS. 

A law was enacted by the Legislature of 1907, entitled "An 
Act to give the Railroad and Warehouse Commission jurisdiction 
over track scales used by Common Carriers for the purpose of 
weighing carload freight." Said act is designated as Chapter 357, 
General Laws 1907, and provides as follows: 

"Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Minnesota: 

Section 1. The Railroad and Warehouse Commission shall have power 
to enforce reasonable regulations for the weighing of cars of freight offered 
for shipment in carload lots. 

All track scales used by common carriers for the purpose of weighing 
carload freight shall be under the control and jurisdiction of the commis- 
sion and subject to inspection, exempt from the jurisdiction of sealers of 
weights and measures. The entire cost of such supervision and inspection 
shall be a proper charge against the common carriers interested in or own- 
ing the several scales, the same to be paid upon a statement rendered by 
the Commission. All moneys collected shall be credited to the grain inspec- 
tion fund. 

Section 2. This act shall take effect and be in force from and after 
its passage. Approved April 23, 1907." 

The Commission found upon investigation that the total num- 
ber of track scales to be examined and tested under the above pro- 
visions was one hundred twenty-eight, located at seventy-four sta- 
tions on seventeen different railroads, and in view of the importance 
of the work in hand, careful preparations were made in advance of 
the undertaking to ensure a complete and thorough inspection as 
contemplated by the statute. 

With this end in view, a special equipment was secured, con- 
sisting of an all steel car loaded with iron to a gross tonnage of 
101,100 pounds, this car and its load representing a positive, un- 
changing standard of weight, unaffected by climatic or other exte- 
rior conditions. The work of testing was done by using a locomo- 
tive to place the test car in different positions over the several sec- 



1 



54 TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

tions of a scale and taking a record of the reading at each point, 
careful examination being made, in each case, of foundations and 
all working parts of the scale, while the test car w r as on the scale, 
thus affording an opportunity for complete inspection and proof of 
all its parts and conditions under a supreme test. 

Whenever scales were found in a faulty condition, the work of 
adjusting and correcting them was done at once, if practicable, but 
in cases of broken parts, decayed foundations or other serious irreg- 
ularity requiring special treatment, a detailed report was sent to the 
scale expert representing the railroad with instructions to have the 
fault corrected at once. This was followed by a second inspection 
by the expert in the employ of the Commission to finally determine 
the accuracy of the repaired scale. 

Mr. C C. Neale, the scale expert who had supervision of the 
work as representative of the Commission, was fully equipped by 
knowledge and experience to carry it to a successful conclusion, 
having been for a number of years in charge of all scales used by 
the State Grain Weighing Department located at the mills and ele- 
vators at the terminal points of Minnesota. 

Mr. Neale has submitted the following report of the results of 
his investigation of the railroad track scales which came within 
the scope of the law herein referred to. 

REPORT OF MR. C. C. NEALE, SCALE EXPERT, REPRESENTING 
THE RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. 

Scales found correct # 37 

Scales weighing less than standard from 40 lbs. to 22,700 lbs 66 

Scales weighing more than standard from 50 lbs. to 6,660 lbs 25 

Total number of scales tested 128 

The conditions causing the scales to weigh less than standard may be 
enumerated as follows: 

Broken scales 6 

Poor foundations 10 

Leverage shifted 8 

Wrong additional weights 4 

Worn out pivots 15 

Binding conditions 23 

Total 66 

The conditions causing the scales to weigh more than standard may be 
enumerated as follows: 

Leverage shifted 12 

Broken scales 2 

False balance 8 

Wrong counter weights 1 

Scales improperly built 2 

Total 25 



RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. 55 

From this table it will be seen that the great tendency of scales 
is to weigh less than standard, and this fact has always been recog- 
nized in the work of scale testing and adjusting. 

The various railroad companies have done everything in their 
power to facilitate the testing of the scales by the state on their 
respective roads, and all concerned have given the matter serious 
attention and seem to appreciate the fact that the effort has been 
to make the work really mean something of consequence. 

INTERLOCKING PLANTS. 

New interlocking plants and changes in existing plants were in- 
spected and approved by the Commission during the past year : 

At Breckenridge, at the crossing of the Northern Pacific Rail- 
way by the Great Northern Railway, — changes and additions in 
original plan. Inspection of plant as revised, made December 14th, 
1906, and approved. 

At Crystal, at the crossing of the Great Northern Railway by 
the Minneapolis, St. Paul and S. S. Marie Ry. Inspected and ap- 
proved December 22, 1906. 

At Detroit, at the crossing of the Northern Pacific Ry. by the 
Minneapolis, St. Paul and S. S. Marie Ry. New additions and 
extensions. Inspected and approved March 18th, 1907. 

At St. Anthony Park, about two miles north, at the crossing of 
the Minnesota Belt Line Ry. with the Northern Pacific Ry. (St. 
Paul & Duluth)'. Inspected and approved April 22, 1907. 

At Hinckley, at the crossing of the Great Northern Ry. by the 
Northern Pacific Ry. Revision of plant. Inspected and approved 
May 24th, 1907.

56 TWENTY-TliIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

months of 1907, when the large movement of grain and other prod- 
ucts from the crop of 1906, which had been tied up! by the congested 
winter conditions was again under way. In addition to this there 
was an urgent demand at this time for cars to care for the heavy 
emigration movement into North Dakota and Western Canada. 

It is not anticipated that the difficulties of car shortage or the 
hardships from scarcity of fuel experienced at many points in 
Northern Minnesota and North Dakota a year ago will be repeated 
during the present winter. Since early in November, there have 
been no complaints filed in this office of lack of cars for any purpose. 
During the present winter season up to the time of closing this re- 
port there has been no case of complaint of shortage of fuel or of 
cars for same, whereas, during the preceding season there were 
many. Much fear and many dire predictions were indulged in that 
similar experiences might be looked for this winter, which have thus 
far failed to materialize. It is evident that there has been a univer- 
sal recognition of the importance of early attention to this vital 
question in view of the preceding winter's experience. The sys- 
tematic campaign of education on this point made through the pub- 
lic press during the summer months was no doubt largely instru- 
mental in bringing about this improved condition. Another ground 
for the assumption that the fuel question will not give cause for fur- 
ther anxiety is the remarkably mild weather of October and Novem- 
ber this year and which promises to continue well into the new 
year, as contrasted with that of a year since. 

The sudden cessation of the demand for cars heretofore referred 
to as having occurred early in November, has given rise to the con- 
clusion in many minds that the grain crops of 1907 in the northwest 
will prove to have been considerably short of the official estimates 
made at the close of the harvest, but this will be demonstrated only 
when the spring movement of 1908 is completed. 

A detailed list of car shortage complaints will be found on page

FORMAL CASES. 

DEPOTS AND DEPOT SERVICE. 

South Minneapolis Depot, — An application was filed on Decem- 
ber 31st, 1906, by the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway 
Company, for permission to discontinue service at the station of 
South Minneapolis, alleging that a continuation of the service was 
not justified by the present conditions of business, there being no 
freight business at the station, the entire revenue for the previous 
year having been derived from passenger traffic exclusively and 
being but $476.67 in amount. It was further alleged that the loca- 
tion of the station is exceedingly dangerous, by reason of the many 
tracks passing upon both sides of the building. 

The Commission, deeming this a matter involving public inter- 
est, fixed on January 8th, 1907, as a time for hearing the applica- 
tion and caused a notice thereof to be published in the Minneapolis 
Tribune and Minneapolis Journal on the third and fourth days of 
January. 

No other persons than representatives of the C, M. & St. P. Ry. 
Co. having appeared at the time of hearing and no objections to 
the proposed action having been presented, after due consideration, 
the Commission granted the application. 

Belle Prairie Depot. — On November 25th, 1906, an applica- 
tion was filed by the Northern Pacific Railway Company, under the 
provisions of Chapter 319, General Laws of 1903, for permission 
to withdraw the agent at Belle Prairie station on the ground that 
the volume of business was too light to justify the expense of main- 
taining an agent. 

In order to afford the citizens of Belle Prairie an opportunity to 
be heard, the Commission designated the 27th day of December, 
1906, for that purpose. The hearing came on at Belle Prairie pur- 



88 TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

suant to notice, the Northern Pacific Railway Company appearing 
by its division superintendent, M. M. Fowler, and numerous citi- 
zens were present, who submitted evidence to show the resources of 
the country tributary to said station and the necessity for contin- 
uation of the service. Statistics were also filed by L. W. Ayer, an 
old resident familiar with the past and present conditions of the 
village and country, which indicated the number of settlers and the 
amount of cultivated land and of livestock, also including stores, 
creameries and other industries. 

It was also developed by the evidence that the station grounds 
and right of way w r ere originally conveyed to the company in the 
year 1877 by one Franklin J. Farrand, which deed contained the 
following covenant : 

"This land is granted for the Belle Prairie station, and this grant is 
upon the express condition that the sidetracks and station building, includ- 
ing depots for the Belle Prairie station, shall be constructed, erected, main- 
tained and operated upon said land and upon the lands granted by S. T. 
Hamilton and the heirs of Nancy Mason, for station grounds at Belle 
Prairie." 

After due consideration of the evidence and facts submitted, the 
Commission made its findings and order on the 18th day of Jan- 
uary, 1907, denying the application of the company. 

Beaudette Depot. — In the spring of 1907 citizens at and in the 
vicinity of Beaudette, on the Canadian Northern Railway, com- 
plained of inadequate depot facilities, urging that in view of the 
volume of business furnished at said station, they were entitled to 
standard depot accommodations and the services of a regular agent 

The investigation was made by the Commission, which resulted 
in the construction by the company of a station building twenty 
by seventy-five feet, fronted by a platform twelve feet wide extend- 
ing the full length of the building, also a freight house with dimen- 
sions of twenty by seventy feet with platform to correspond. Since 
its construction, the depot has undergone further improvements in 
the way of enlargement of waiting room and the building of a sub- 
stantial foundation. 



JVilliams Depot. — This matter came to the Commission in the 
form of a petition for a suitable station building, the existing facili- 
ties being alleged to be entirely inadequate. Commissioner W. E. 
Young visited the station on October 9th, 1907, and found that the 



RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. 89 

existing facilities were not in keeping with the importance of the 
place as a shipping station, and submitted a report of his findings 
and recommendations, which were approved by the Commission. 

Pursuant thereto an order was served on the company on the 
18th day of October, 1907, requiring, first, that the said railway 
company build at said station of Williams, a suitable freight depot 
at least fifteen feet wide, eighteen feet long and ten feet high, to be 
fully enclosed; secondly, that said company for the present main- 
tain and use the present passenger depot exclusively for a telegraph 
office and for the use of passengers. 

PLATFORMS. 

Pcnnock Loading Platform. — A number of residents and ship- 
pers at and in the vicinity of Pennock, a station on the Great North- 
ern Railway, filed an application on February 13, 1907, for the 
construction of a loading platform for the shipment of grain, hay 
and other products by direct loading from wagons into cars. 

The company having declined to furnish the facilities on the 
ground that there was insufficient business of the character indi- 
cated to justify the outlay, the matter was brought to a hearing, 
which took place at Pennock on August 6th, 1907, where a number 
of the petitioners were assembled, and presented considerable evi- 
dence to support the application. The company was not repre- 
sented at the hearing. 

After reviewing the evidence and facts submitted, the Com- 
mission, on August 17th, 1907, issued its findings and order as fol- 
lows : 

(order.) 

BEFORE THE RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION OF 
THE STATE OF MINNESOTA. 

In the matter of the petition of the farmers and business men of Pennock, 

a station on the line of the Great Northern Railway, in Kandiyohi 

County, Minnesota, for a loading platform. 

This matter came on for hearing before the Commission on the 5th 
day of August, 1907, at Pennock, after due notice to all parties. 

After hearing the evidence, the Commission find that the Great North- 
ern Railway Company is a corporation organized under the laws of the 
State of Minnesota, and is operating a railroad from St. Paul, Minneapolis 
and Duluth, Minnesota, via Willmar to Breckenridge, and that Pennock is 
a station in Kandiyohi county on the line of said railroad. The country 
tributary to said station is adapted to agriculture and raises yearly a large 
quantity of grain, hay, livestock and other farm produce. There are no 
facilities at the said station of Pennock by the way of platform, or other- 
wise, for the loading of grain or other commodities from wagons direct 
into the railroad cars or the unloading of heavy machinery from the cars. 



90 TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

It is reasonably necessary for the accommodation of shippers of grain 
and other commodities that a loading platform should be erected and 
maintained by said railway company at said station for the purpose of 
unloading grain and other farm produce from wagons into the railroad 
cars and for the unloading of heavy machinery and other heavy freight 
articles. 

It is therefore ordered, that the Great Northern Railway Company 
within sixty (60) days after the service of this order, erect and maintain 
at some convenient, accessible place on its sidetrack at the station of Pen- 
nock, Kandiyohi County, Minnesota, a loading platform for the use of ship- 
pers desiring to load grain or other commodities from wagons into the 
cars of said railway company or unload heavy carload freight. That said 
platform be placed parallel to said sidetrack and close enough thereto to 
make it convenient to load therefrom, the top to be four (4) feet above 
the top of the rail and not less than twelve (12) feet wide, nor less than 
thirty (30) feet long, with approaches on each end not exceeding a gradient 
of one in ten. 

Dated August 19, 1907. 

By the Commission, 
(Seal.) A. C. CLAUSEN, 

Secretary. 



Szvift Platform. — Shippers and business men at and in the 
vicinity of Swift, a station on the Canadian Northern Railway, 
filed a complaint that there were no facilities for unloading and 
shipping merchandise, and that a loading and unloading platform 
was necessary to enable them to handle ordinary freight. An 
investigation of conditions at Swift station having been made by 
the Commission, and it having been determined that, among other 
improvements, such a platform as petitioned for was essential, an 
order was made on October i8th, 1907, requiring the company to 
construct same. 

SIDETRACKS. 

CITIZENS OF STEELE COUNTY VS. CHICAGO, ROCK ISLAND AND 
PACIFIC RAILWAY COMPANY. 

Sidetrack between Ellendale and Owatonna. — In the month of 
July, 1906, a petition signed by numerous citizens and taxpayers 
residing between Ellendale and Owatonna, in Steele county, on the 
Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific Railway, was received by the Com- 
mission, in which its assistance was solicited toward securing the 
location of a sidetrack and station at a point designated as Mile 
Post 278, nine and three-tenths miles north of Ellendale. 

Within a few days subsequent to the filing of the foregoing 
petition, a second one was received from an equally numerous body 



RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. 91 

cf citizens, alleging that the location of the proposed station at 
Mile Post 275, three miles nearer to Ellendale, would meet the 
wishes and accommodate a greater number of people than any other 
location between Ellendale and Owatonna. 

It was further set forth that the latter named location had four 
creameries tributary to it, was in the midst of a thickly settled coun- 
try and would furnish to the road for the first year's business not 
less than 100,000 bushels of grain, fifty carloads of livestock, be- 
sides products from the creameries and other sources. 

The Commission designated Wednesday, August 8th, 1906, for 
a hearing in the matter, which took place at the time appointed 
and upon the premises, at Mile Post 275. A large number of the 
petitioners were in attendance and submitted evidence to support 
their contention that Mile Post 275 was the most suitable location 
for the proposed station. Some opposition to the whole project 
was manifested by representatives of the business interests at Ellen- 
dale in the plea that a new station at this time in such close prox- 
imity to Ellendale would not be justified by existing conditions and 
would be unfair and hostile to its business prosperity. Represen- 
tatives of the railway company were also present, but took no part 
in the discussion. 

Subsequent to the hearing above referred to, a request for a 
hearing was filed by a number of the petitioners who favored the 
location at Mile Post 278, pursuant to which notice was given that 
such hearing would take place on Monday, October 1st, 1906, at 
12:30 o'clock, at the Owatonna House, in the City of Owatonna, 
which came on at the time and place appointed. 

A number of settlers and property owners located tributary to 
Mile Post 278 were present and testified as to the desirability and 
prospective advantage of a station at said point. Several represen- 
tatives of Ellendale interests were in attendance and advocated the 
location at Mile Post 278 as the most desirable one, all interests 
cc nsidered. The business interests of Owatonna took no particu- 
lar part in the discussion. The hearing was then adjourned and 
the whole matter taken under advisement. 

After extended consideration of all the facts, evidence and con- 
ditions in the case, the Commission reached the conclusion that the 
interests of the residents and settlers in the territory named would 
as a whole be more effectively served by locating the station at or 
near Mile Post 275 and signified to the Chicago, Rock Island &J 
Pacific Ry. Co. their intention to issue their order to this effect. 



I 



92 TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

The company thereupon expressed its desire to waive the proposed 
order by acquiescing in the conclusions of the Commission, assert- 
ing its willingness to construct the sidetrack and erect a small sta- 
tion building as soon as the land required for right of way and 
station facilities could be purchased. 

This was deemed satisfactory to the Commission and the com- 
pany proceeded to make its arrangements accordingly. Some de- 
lay was experienced before the necessary property was acquired by 
the company, but the sidetrack and station facilities were completed 
early in the spring of 1907. 

Petition for Sidetrack Between Wright and Tamarack. — This 
was an application for a siding about equidistant between Wright 
and Tamarack stations on the Northern Pacific Railway, a distance 
of about five miles, for the use of Kaye and Dumert Lumber Co., in 
getting out timber, which otherwise would be a difficult process 
owing to the low swampy condition of the country and the conse- 
quent difficulty and expense in building wagon roads. 

The matter was brought to the attention of the railway com- 
pany and the petition denied on the ground that there was not 
sufficient business to move from the territory in question to justify 
the expense of construction. 

The Commission then gave notice of a hearing on Friday, 
December 7, 1906, at their office, which was attended by the peti- 
tioners and by representatives of the company, at which testimony 
was offered to furnish all necessary light on the subject. The 
Commission, after considering the whole matter did not deem itself 
in a position to make an order for the track in view of the short 
distance between the present stations, nor were they of the opinion 
that such an order, if made, could be successfully enforced. The 
petitioners were notified accordingly. 

Williams Sidetrack. — In April, 1907, the Commission received 
a complaint from shippers of wood and other forest products at 
Williams station on the Canadian Northern Railway, alleging that 
the present sidetrack was of insufficient capacity to afford shippers 
reasonable facilities for loading their products and that during wet 
seasons it was always more or less under water. Under these con- 
ditions they asked for an order requiring the railway company to 
improve the condition of the present track and to construct an addi- 



RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. 93 

tional sidetrack of suitable length to accommodate the increased 
business. 

An official inspection of the facilities which were in use at Wil- 
liams was made by Commissioner Young in October, 1907, and a 
hearing was held at which citizens of Williams and representatives 
of the company were present. It was made apparent to the Com- 
irdssion that better sidetrack facilities were necessary and an order 
was issued on the 18th day of October, 1907, requiring the com- 
pany to arrange for the proper grading and drainage of the pres- 
ent sidetrack and the construction of an additional loading track 
1400 feet in length running eastward from the west switch of the 
present siding now located on the north side of the track at said 
station. 

Bcaudette Sidetrack. — On May 8th, 1907, a petition was re- 
ceived from citizens and shippers residing at and near Beaudette, 
a station on the Canadian Northern Railway, asking that an inves- 
tigation be made into the shipping facilities at said point with a 
view of enlarging and improving same. 

The Commission caused such investigation to be made and 
-found that the sidetrack facilities were not sufficient to. accommo- 
date the volume of business offered at this station, particularly with 
reference to shipments of timber and timber products. It was also 
found that at times it was difficult for teams to reach the cars on 
account of poor track drainage. Suitable recommendations were 
made by the Commission for improvement in existing track condi- 
tions and for the extension of the sidetrack to meet the increasing 
needs of shippers. The company complied with the recommenda- 
tions by making the necessary improvements. 

Sidetrack at Swift. — Complaints and petitions having been sent 
in by residents and shippers at and tributary to the station of Swift, 
on the Canadian Northern Railway, and the merits of said case 
liaving been fully investigated and determined, an order was made 
on the company on October 18th, 1907, requiring it to furnish the 
necessary additional sidetrack room at this station as follows : 

Ordered, "That the railway siding now located at said station 
shall be extended 700 feet to the eastward and that a wagon road 
shall be constructed and maintained along said sidetrack for the 
full length thereof; that the main track and sidetrack be properly 
drained." 



94 TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

Sidetrack at Roosevelt. — A similar complaint at Roosevelt, on 
the Canadian Northern Railway, having been investigated, resulted 
in the following order on October 18, 1907: 

Ordered, "That the loading track now located at said station of 
Roosevelt be extended 1000 feet westward; that the main track 
and sidetracks now running through said station be drained and 
properly graded." 

APPLICATIONS FOR "WYE" CONNECTIONS. 

Nezv Ulm Wye. — Early in April, 1907, a petition was filed by 
the New Ulm Stone Co. and by practically all the manufacturers 
and other business men of the City of New Ulm, in Brown County, 
asking for the establishment of track connections between the lines 
of the Chicago and Northwestern Railway Company and Minne- 
apolis & St. Louis Railroad Company at said City of New Ulm in 
which petition were cited numerous reasons to establish the neces- 
sity for said facilities. 

A copy of the complaint was served on the defendant companies 
on the 10th day of April, 1907, with an order requiring them to 
file answer thereto within twenty days. 

The question having been raised as to the necessity for the track 
connections petitioned for and a hearing in the matter having been 
found necessary, the Commission appointed May 31st, 1907, at New 
Ulm, Minn., at 1 :30 o'clock P. M. as the time and place for such 
hearing, which came on pursuant to said notice. The subsequent 
proceedings and disposition of the case are recorded in the findings 
and order of the Commission issued on the 16th day of June, 1907, 
a* follows: 

BEFORE THE RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION OF 
THE STATE OF MINNESOTA. 

In the matter of the petition of the New Ulm Stone Company, a corpora- 
tion, citizens and others, of the City of New Ulm, in Brown County, 
Minnesota, for the establishment and maintenance of track connections 
and transfer facilities between the tracks of the Chicago and North- 
western Railway Company and those of the Minneapolis and St. Louis 
Railroad Company at the City of New Ulm, in Brown County, Min- 
nesota. 

The above entitled matter came on for hearing before the Commission 
on the 31st day of May, 1907, at the City of New Ulm, Brown County, Min- 
nesota. Messrs. Eckstein & Flor appeared as attorneys for the petitioners; 
Mr. John T. Dille appeared as attorney for the Minneapolis and St. Louis 
Railroad Company, and the Chicago and Northwestern Railway Company 
appeared by Mr. E. G. Schevenell, its Division Superintendent. 



RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. 95 

After hearing the evidence and due consideration thereof, the Commis- 
sion find: 

That the Chicago and Northwestern Railway Company, hereinafter 
called the Northwestern Company, is a corporation organized under the 
laws of the State of Illinois, and is operating several lines of railway from 
Chicago, Illinois, running westerly therefrom through the states of Iowa, 
Wisconsin, Minnesota and South Dakota, and westerly from Winona to 
the City of New Ulm in Brown County, Minnesota, and has numerbus 
connections with various railroads crossing the same both in Minnesota 
and the other states named. 

The Minneapolis and St. Louis Railroad Company, hereinafter called 
the St. Louis Company, is a corporation incorporated under the laws of 
the State of Minnesota, and is operating a railroad from St. Paul- and Min- 
neapolis in said state to Winthrop, and from Winthrop southerly through 
Brown county to and through the City of New Ulm, into the State of 
Iowa, and' from Winona to Watertown in South Dakota, and that said 
company has various connections with other railroads in the states of 
Minnesota and Iowa, and through its connections reaches the City of Chi- 
cago and other points east, west and southwest. 

The tracks of the Northwestern Company and the St. Louis Com- 
pany parallel each other for a distance of more than one-half mile in the 
City of New Ulm, and the right-of-way of said companies adjoin, and said 
tracks are not more than five hundred feet apart, and it is feasible as well 
as practicable to establish track connections and transfer facilities between 
the lines of said railroads at the point hereinafter named in this order. 

That no facilities whatever have been provided by said railroad com- 
panies, or either of them, at any point in said City of New Ulm, or vicinity, 
for track connections for the transfer of cars from either of said 'lines of 
road to the other; that the City of New Ulm has a population of Five 
Thousand Seven Hundred and Twenty (5720), as shown by the state census 
of 1905. 

The New Ulm Stone Company, hereinafter called the Stone Company, 
is a corporation created under the laws of the state, and engaged in quar- 
rying, crushing and shipping stone. Its quarries produce a superior qual- 
ity of stone for building roads and other purposes; are situated about three 
miles from -the City of New Ulm; and are provided with trackage by the 
Northwestern Company. The market for the stone of this company is in 
St. Paul and Minneapolis, and at different stations along the line of the 
St. Louis Company, where it is needed for building, road, street and other 
purposes, and the Stone Company could do a ldrge business at stations on 
the St. Louis line if cars could be transferred from the tracks of the North- 
western Company at New Ulm; but the expense of transferring by wagon 
makes the price of stone so high that it is prohibitory. In the crushing 
of the stone at the quarries, there accumulates a large quantity of sand or 
fine powdered stone, for which there is a market at St. James, Minnesota. 
The published rate on this product and on crushed stone from New Ulm 
over the Northwestern Company's road and its connection is five cents 
(.05). while the rate over the St. Louis Company's line is three cents (.03) 
per hundred pounds. With the last named rate and a reasonable transfer 
charge, the Stone Company could dispose of this product which other- 
wise would largely go to waste. 

There is a flouring mill located at Hanska, the product of which is sold 
in Chicago and further east. It has been the experience of the owners of 
this mill that much better time can be made on its shioments when routed 
over the Northwestern Company's line than over the St. Louis Company's 
line and its other connections. As much as five weeks have been con- 
sumed in switching and transferring in Chicago when shipped by this 
route. 

It has sometimes been necessary to make transfers of threshing rigs 
at New Ulm from the tracks of one Company to the other, which could

and would have been transferred without unloading if track connections 
had existed. 

The Commission find that it is practicable and necessary and a reason- 
able and proper accommodation for the citizens of the state and the City 
of New Ulm and others using and employing the lines of said railways for 
the transportation of stone, harvesting machinery, merchandise, livestock 
and other commodities, that ample facilities by track connection for the 
transfer of any and all cars used in the business of the respective lines be 
provided, and that it is reasonable that said Companies provide at the 
point mentioned in this order, track connections between the lines of said 
companies for the transfer of cars used in the regular course of business of 
said companies. 

It is therefore ordered, that the Northwestern Company and the St. 
Louis Company, within thirty days after the service of this otder, con- 
struct and operate a transfer track in the City of New Ulm, Brown County, 
Minnesota, said track to be located as follows: 

Beginning at the point of switch in the southerly track of the Chicago 
and Northwestern Railway Company said point of switch to be located 
about one hundred feet southerly from the easterly line of Third street 
south, thence from said point of switch and tangent to said Chicago and 
Northwestern track; on a curve to right with a radius of 459.27 feet, a dis- 
tance of about 255 feet; thence from that point and tangent to the last 
described curve, a distance of about eighty feet; thence on a curve to the 
left with a radius of 459.27 feet and tangent to last described course, a dis- 
tance of about 165 feet; thence on curve to the left with a radius of about 
573.68 feet, a distance of about 140 feet to the point of switch in the main 
track of the Minneapolis and St. Louis Railroad Company; said point of 
switch to be located in said main track of the Minneapolis and St. Louis- 
Railroad about 675 feet easterly from the easterly line of Third street 
south, measured along the center line of last said main track from its inter- 
section with easterly line of said Third street south.

Note. — It is not the duty of the Commission in the first instance to 
determine the share of expense to be borne by each company. If they fail 
to agree on a proper division of cost, the Commission is required on appli- 
cation of either party to determine it. (R. L. 1905, Sec. 2020.) 



Rochester Wye. — This matter came before the Commission by- 
petition from citizens of Olmsted County for an order requiring' 
the Chicago & Northwestern Railway Company and the Chicago 
Great Western Railway Company to provide track connections be- 
tween their respective lines in the City of Rochester, so as to fur- 
nish facilities for the transfer of cars between the said railways. 

A partial histoiy of this case can be found in the preceding' 
annual report of the Commission on page 95, which covers the pro- 
ceedings up to the time of closing said report, the matter at that 
time having been heard and taken under advisement. 



RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. 97 

On June 5th, 1907, the evidence having been duly considered, 
the Commission made its findings of facts and order in the matter 
which was served upon the respective companies as follows : 

BEFORE THE RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION OF 
THE STATE OF MINNESOTA. 

In the matter of the petition of the citizens of Olmsted County, Minne- 
sota, for track connections and transfer facilities between the tracks 
of the Chicago and Northwestern Railway Company and the Chicago 
Great Western Railway Company. 

This matter came on for hearing before the Commission on the 30th 
day of October, 1906, at the City of Rochester, Minnesota, after due notice 
to the petitioners and each of the above named railway companies. The 
petitioners appeared by A. T. Stebbins and other citizens, the Chicago 
Great Western Railway Company by J. L. Erdahl, its attorney, the Chicago 
and Northwestern Railway Company appeared by W. C. VanCapen, its 
agent at Rochester. 

After hearing the evidence and due consideration thereof, the Commis- 
sion find: 

The Chicago North-Western Railway Company, hereinafter called the 
North-Western Company, is a corporation incorporated under the laws of 
the State of Illinois, and is and for a long time has been operating a rail- 
road through parts of North and South Dakota, Nebraska and across the 
southern part of the State of Minnesota, passing through Olmsted county 
and the City of Rochester, and from there through the states of Wisconsin, 
Iowa and Illinois to the City of Chicago. 

The Chicago Great Western Railway Company, hereinafter called the 
Great Western Company, is a corporation incorporated under the laws of 
the states of Illinois and Iowa, and is and for a long time has been oper- 
ating a railroad from St. Paul and Minneapolis in the State of Minnesota 
to Kansas City, Missouri, through the states of Minnesota, Iowa, Kansas 
and Missouri, and from St. Paul to Chicago through Minnesota, Iowa ancf 
Illinois, and from St. Paul via Randolph through the City of Rochester, 
Olmsted county, connecting with the main Chicago line at Mclntyre, Iowa. 
The tracks of said railroads are each of standard guage. and cross and 
intersect each other at grade near the City of Rochester, Olmsted County, 
Minnesota, and in passing through said city, the tracks are parallel and not 
more than one hundred feet apart, and it is practical to establish track . 
connection between the said railroads either at the crossing or where said 
tracks parallel. No track connections whatever are provided at the cross- 
ing of the tracks of said railroads or in or near the City of Rochester, nor 
are there any facilities whereby cars can be transferred from the tracks of 
one company to the tracks of the other. 

It is necessary for the reasonable and proper accommodation of the 
shippers using and employing the lines of said railway companies for the 
transportation of the products of the soil and merchandise and other com- 
modities that ample facilities by track connections should be provided cither 
at the crossing of said railroads or where said railroads parallel in the city 
of Rochester for the transfer of cars from the tracks of either of said com- 
panies to the tracks of the other company, said track connections would 
greatly facilitate the transportation of farm products, wood, coal, merchan- 
dise and other commodities between the numerous stations on the lines of 
each of said railroads and their several eastern connections. 

At the time these proceedings were commenced, the Commission's 
authority to establish track connections was limited to points where the 
tracks of railroads crossed at grade. Under the laws of 1907, this author- 
ity is extended to where lines are parallel and not over five hundred feet 



98 TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

apart. In this case both companies to this proceeding, while insisting that 
track connections are not necessary, and that an order requiring them is 
not justified, have expressed the opinion that the location adopted b 4 v the 
Commission is more advantageous to the companies, both in the cheapness 
of construction and practicability of operation. 

It is therefore ordered, that the North-Western Company and the Great 
Western Company construct and operate a transfer connecting track in 
the City of Rochester, Olmsted County, State of Minnesota, said .track to 
be located as follows: 

Beginning at the point of switch to be located in the southerly track of 
the North-Western Company about thirty-seven (37) feet easterly from the 
west line of Clark street; thence on a number 7 turn-out curve, to the right 
about one hundred forty (140) feet; thence from that point and tangent to 
the last said turn-out curve, pn a curve to the left with the radius of 637.27 
feet, a distance of about one hundred sixty-three (16$) feet; thence on a 
number 9 turn-out curve to the left and tangent to the last said curve about 
ninety (90) feet to point of switch to be located in 'the main track of the 
Chicago Great Western Railway Company. Last said switch to be located 
about five (5) feet from west line of Hunter street. •

Secretary. 

Dated June 5, 1907. 

Notice of appeal to the District Court of Olmsted County was 
served on the Commission by the companies on July 17th, 1907. 
Pursuant thereto a certified return on appeal was made by the 
secretary of the Commission to said court, July 22, 1907. 



TRAIN SERVICE. 

Train service betiveen Reno and Isinours. — During the summer 
of 1906, complaints were received from patrons of the Chicago, Mil- 
waukee & St. Paul Railway, doing business along the Preston 
branch, between Reno and Isinours, regarding the unsatisfacory con- 
dition of the passenger train service on said line, in which it was 
alleged not only that the number of trains devoted to the service was 
inadequate to meet the requirements of the traveling public, but also 
that failure to meet trains at connecting points was the rule rather 
than the exception, and requesting in said petition that an early 
hearing be given the petitioners, at which their grievances could be 
shown. 

A copy of the complaint was served on the company, which was 
returned unsatisfied, whereupon a hearing was fixed for Thursday, 
June 28th, 1906, at Caledonia, of which due notice was given. 

The matter came on for hearing before the Commission at the 
court house in Caledonia according to notice, at which T. D. 
O'Brien, Esq., of St. Paul, appeared as attorney for the complain- 



RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. 99 

ants and F. W. Root, Esq., of Minneapolis, as attorney for the re- 
spondent. William B. Clarkson on behalf of himself and the Ex- 
ecutive Committee of the United Commercial Traveler's Associa- 
tion of Minnesota, testified as to the inadequacy and inconvenience 
of the existing service. Other witnesses on behalf of complainants 
were J. A. Lund, O. M. Thundale and J. J. Olson of Harmony; 
H. H. Wheeler," James Manuel and P. W. Young of Canton; 
Henry Fladager and Albert Olson of Spring Grove ; W. B. Beldon, 
R. D. Sprague and O. K. Dahl of Caledonia; J. W. Stapleton, 
Division Superintendent, appeared as witness for the company. 

After the evidence was all in, the hearing was closed and the 
matter taken under advisement. 

A subsequent conference was held at the office of the Commis- 
sion on the 5th day of March, 1907, at which the several parties in 
interest were represented, the chief purpose of which was to deter- 
mine if a re-arrangement of the time schedules of local trains could 
be made so as to improve the existing service, but no satisfactory 
conclusions were reached, objection to any change in existing sched- 
ules being presented by representatives of patrons of the road who 
were present at the conference. 

On April 3rd, 1907, the Commission having given due consider- 
ation to the whole matter, made its findings and order as follows : 

BEFORE THE RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION OF 
THE STATE OF MINNESOTA. 

IN THE MATTER OF THE COMPLAINT OF WILLIAM B. CLARK- 
SON, on behalf of himself and the Grand Executive Committee of 
Commercial Travelers of Minnesota, the Dakotas and Manitoba, act- 
ing for the Commercial Travelers of the District of Minnesota, 

Complainant, 
vs. 
THE CHICAGO, MILWAUKEE & ST. PAUL RAILWAY CAMPANY, 

Respondent. 

This is a complaint for additional train service on the line of the re- 
spondent between Isinours and Reno. There is at present one passenger 
train leaving Preston in the morning, stopping at all stations and arriving 
at Reno in time for the morning trains for the Twin Cities and Chicago, 
and arriving at the Twin Cities at 2:30 P M. and Chicago at 9:30 P. M.? 
returning leaving Reno in the afternoon and arriving at Isinours in time to 
make connection with the train that reaches Chicago by nine o'clock the 
next morning. 

In addition to this, there is a mixed train leaving Preston in the morn- 
ing and Reno in the evening. This train carries passengers and is of some 
use in accommodating the local travel. 

Under the existing circumstances, people living upon this line of road 
can reach Chicago in the morning or in the evening; they can go to or come 
from the Twin Cities in the daytime. 



IOO TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

La Crosse, which is the principal town to which citizens along the line 
find it necessary to make frequent trips, can be reached in the morning, 
giving several hours ior the transaction of business, and returning in the 
afternoon. The train service as now arranged, causes some inconvenience 
in reaching county seats, and for passengers who desire to stop at more 
than one town during a day's trip. 

The Commission has considered the matter of re-arranging the present 
train service so as to furnish better local accommodation, but upon inquiry 
with parties interested locally along the line of the road, find that it is not 
desired that the present service should be interfered with. The Commis- 
sion find that it would be unreasonable considering the number of passen- 
gers that would be accommodated and the expense that would be caused 
the company to order an additional train on this branch at present. 

It is thereby ordered, that the complaint be and the same is hereby 
dismissed.

Train service, River Division, C, M. & St. P. Ry. — In October, 
1906, complaints of unsatisfactory passenger train service were re- 
ceived by the Commission from citizens of the towns of Etter and 
Eggleston on the River Division of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. 
Paul Railway, stating that said stations had been practically elim- 
inated as stopping places for any of the passenger trains running be- 
tween the Twin Cities and Chicago, urging the Commission for im- 
mediate relief. 

Similar petitions were subsequently received from residents and 
business men at the villages of La Moille, Dresbach, Pickwick, Da- 
kota and Wacouta. 

A supplemental complaint was sent in by the Business Men's 
Association of Winona, to which city a number of the towns men- 
tioned are tributary, protesting that the existing passenger train 
service was wholly inadequate and exceedingly detrimental to the 
city of Winona in turning trade to La Crosse, Wis., that properly 
and naturally belonged to Winona. 

These various complaints were laid before the company, which 
explained that it had been found necessary to discontinue stopping 
their No. 58 at some of these stations on account of its being a fast 
mail train and the Railway Mail Service Department had taken the 
ground that these stops must be discontinued or the contract with 
the government for handling the mail would be canceled. 

The Commission thereupon gave notice of a hearing to take 
place at Winona to consider complaints from stations south of that 
city and at Red Wing for the stations farther north on the line. 



RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. IOI 

The necessity for the hearings referred to was obviated by the 
prompt action of the company in arranging for the discontinuance 
of the mail train No. 58 as a passenger train and the establishment 
on December 2nd, 1906, of a new train (No. 16), scheduled to stop 
at all stations between the Twin Cities and La Crosse, said arrange- 
ment proving entirely satisfactory to all parties interested. 

Train service between Winona and Rochester on C. G. W. Ry. — 
Certain citizens of Winona County, to-wit: Henry Baab of St. 
Charles, John Gill of Bethany, E. O. Treder of Altura and Andrew 
Rinn and G. C. Stevenson of Rollingstone, filed a complaint against 
the Chicago Great Western Railway Company on April 18th, 1907, 
alleging among other things, that said company owns and operates 
a line of railway extending in a southwesterly direction from the 
City of Winona, in the State of Minnesota through the towns of 
Winona, Rollingstone, Norton, Utica and St. Charles in each of 
Avhich said cities and villages it owns, operates and maintains a 
railway freight and passenger station. 

That said road passes through a rich, productive and populous 
fanning community with large quantities of freight business tribu- 
tary to it, such as hay, grain, butter, cheese, livestock and other 
products of the farms and that the people resident in said towns, vil- 
lages and cities are dependent on said railway for passenger service 
and also annually purchase and ship over said railway large quan- 
tities of merchandise, lumber and coal and desire to and would annu- 
ally ship into and out of said territory much larger quantities of 
said farm products and commodities if the said railroad company 
furnished suitable facilities therefor. 

That for more than one year previous to the filing of the said 
complaint said railway company has been negligent in the care and 
maintenance of its road and rolling stock, permitting it to depreciate 
in condition to such an extent as to render it dangerous to public 
safety. That for more than a year said company has operated no 
passenger trains and has scheduled but one freight train daily, the 
only accommodation for passengers being a combination car at- 
tached to said freight train, such service being entirely inadequate 
tc properly handle the passenger and freight business tributary to 
said road. That said train has been run in so irregular and incon- 
venient a manner that it has been of no particular value to its 
patrons, who are therefore obliged to resort to the use of livery to 
tiansact their business between the various places on the line of road. 



102 TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

The petitioners therefore pray for an order of the Railroad and 
Warehouse Commission requiring the Chicago Great Western Rail- 
way Company to improve and better its line of railway, roadbed 
and rolling stock ; to operate at least one passenger train each way 
daily upon such time schedule as will be reasonable and convenient 
to its patrons ; to operate its freight trains regularly and with rea- 
sonable dispatch and for such other and further relief in the prem- 
ises as may be deemed meet and proper. 

A copy of the complaint was served on the respondent company 
which was followed by a notice that the Commission would make a 
trip of investigation over that portion of the road involved in the 
complaint, Wednesday, May 22nd, 1907, being fixed upon for said 
purpose. The complainants were notified of the intended investiga- 
tion and two or three representatives accompanied the Commission. 

The result of the inspection is embodied in the following report 
and recommendations of the Commission, a copy of which was sent 
to the company. 

INSPECTION OF TRAIN SERVICE, ETC., ON CHICAGO. GREAT 
WESTERN RAILWAY— ROCHESTER TO WINONA. 

Inspection of this line was made by Commissioners Mills and Staples, 
accompanied by Dwight C. Morgan, Engineer, on Wednesday, May 21, 
1907. It was found that the service consisted of a mixed train operated by 
starting from Rochester at 5:30 A. M. and arriving at Winona, schedule 
time, 10:30 A. M., and leaving Winona at 2:00 P. M. and arriving at Roch- 
ester at 7:00 P. M. Trains are operated by one crew and the service is 
daily, except Sunday. 

The train handles whatever freight is offered, both local and carload, 
and runs from six to twelve freight cars. One passenger coach is attached 
to the rear, which is divided into two compartments, one for the express 
and baggage and the accommodation of the freight crew. The compart- 
ment for pasengers contains eleven seats, which are upholstered in the 
ordinary plush. 

The mileage Winona to Rochester is sixty-three (63) miles; the num- 
ber of stations between Rochester and Winona is twelve. The road is a 
difficult one to operate, partly due to the many curves, but principally on 
account of steep grades at different points. From Bear Creek to Altura, a 
distance of four miles, the grade is three per cent going west, which neces- 
sitates cutting the train and taking it up in sections. The bridges being of 
light construction, they necessarily have to operate with a smalU engine, 
which cannot take up more than four loaded cars. It is the custom when 
leaving cars at Bear Creek, to leave them standing on the main track, and 
the passenger coach is always left at the rear of the train to be taken up 
the last trip, and is. therefore exposed in the event a car should break loose 
from the division which is being pulled up the hill. 

The track and roadbed was found to be in fairly good condition and 
safe for operation with the light equipment now in use. The passenger 
traffic was found to be very light; the principal passenger traffic is to 
Winona and return. The time of arrival of train at W r inona is very uncer- 
tain — varying from half an hour to two hours late, leaving the time very 



RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. IO3 

often so short at Winona, that it is impossible for people to depend upon 
being able to do any business and return on the afternoon train. 

The Commission- find that the people are entitled to better passenger 
service than is now afforded them and urge the company to endeavor \p 
operate the present train in accordance with the schedule, and in addition 
thereto, that one day be selected each week when the handling of carload 
freight shall be entirely abandoned and that the train be supplied with one 
freight car for handling of local freight, a coach for the handling of bag- 
gage and express, and sufficient space for the passengers using the present 
coach with an additional coach if the same is found necessary, this train to 
arrive at Winona not later than 10 A. M. and to leave Winona not earlier 
than 4:00 P. M.; that the passenger coach be kept clean and supplied with 
fresh water for drinking purposes, and that a rule be provided allowing no 
smoking in the passenger coach; that the crew be required to so handle the 
train that all passengers may board the train and alight # on the passenger 
platform. 

Wheli the train is cut into sections at Bear Creek to go up the hill, all 
cars remaining at the foot of hill should be placed on sidetrack and switch 
set for main line in order to prevent a serious accident should a car break 
loose. The passenger coach should be detached from the freight cars and 
connected with that portion of the train taken up the first time, to obviate 
the necessity of their waiting down at the bottom of the hill until the last 
section is pulled up the hill. 

On the 30th day of May, 1907, a communication was received 
from the Chicago Great Western Railway Company in which the 
receipt of the report and recommendations of the Commission was 
acknowledged and the assurance conveyed that the recommenda- 
tions would be complied with. 



Duluth to Fond du Lac— A petition was presented by numerous 
patrons of the Northern Pacific Railway Company, residing at the 
stations of West Duluth, New Duluth and Fond du Lac, setting 
forth that New Duluth is a station on said railway, about eleven 
miles distant from the Union Depot at Duluth, and Fond du Lac, a 
station thirteen miles distant from said Union Depot ; that the two 
towns have a combined -population of- about eight hundred inhabi- 
tants, who are without street car facilities and with no other com- 
munication with the City of Duluth, except by the Northern Pacific 
Railway ; that there are quite a number of people who have perman- 
ent homes in New Duluth and Fond du Lac and do business and 
have their offices in the City of Duluth, and that to a large extent 
the population of New Duluth and Fond du Lac must do their trad- 
ing and shopping in said City of Duluth ; 

That during the summer months, the Northern Pacific Railway 
Company maintained an adequate and convenient passenger train 
service between Duluth and Fond du Lac, both morning and evening, 
enabling its patrons living at and between the said stations to attend 



104 TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

conveniently to their business and shopping in Duluth, but that since 
the beginning of the fall season the Railway Company ,had failed 
to furnish adequate or reasonable passenger service, the former 
trains having been discontinued and one slow accommodation freight 
train having been substituted, furnishing in no sense a service which 
could be utilized to any advantage by the petitioners. 

An order of the Commission is prayed for requiring the said 
Northern Pacific Railway Company to restore the passenger train 
service which formerly prevailed between the points mentioned, 
this being in the view of the petitioners, only a fair and reasonable 
requirement and absolutely necessary to furnish them with adequate 
passenger facilities. 

A hearing in this matter was called by the Commission to take 
place on December 7th, 1906, at which there were present \Y. G. 
Joerns, Esq., of Duluth, as attorney for the petitioners and Mr. 
F. W. Gilbert, general superintendent, for the Northern Pacific 
Railway Company. Considerable statistical evidence was submitted 
by both sides and after a full discussion, the Commission brought the 
hearing to a close. 

The conclusions of the Commission were filed on January 17th, 
1907, in the following order: 

BEFORE THE RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION OF 
THE STATE OF MINNESOTA. 

In the matter of the passenger train service between Fond du Lac and Du- 
luth, in the State of Minnesota. 

An order having been heretofore made in this matter, and an error 
having occurred therein, this supplemental order is "made to correct said 
error. 

This matter came before the Commission for hearing on the 7th day of 
December, 1906. Mr. W. J. Joerns appeared as attorney for petitioners, 
and Mr. F. W. Gilbert, General Superintendent, appeared for the Northern 
Pacific Railway Company. 

After hearing the evidence, and due consideration thereof, the Com- 
mission find that the passenger train service furnished by the Northern 
Pacific Railway Company on its line between Fonu du Lac and Duluth is 
unreasonable; that a reasonable service between said stations during the 
winter season would be for a passenger train to start from Fond du Lac 
at about 7:40 in the forenoon of each week day and arrive at Duluth nt 
8:20 in the forenoon; and returning, leaving Duluth at 5:30 in the afternoon 
and arriving at Fond du Lac at 6:10. 

It is, therefore, ordered, that the Northern Pacific Railway Company, in 
addition to the passenger service that said company is now furnishing be- 
tween Fond du Lac and Duluth, forthwith and until the further order of the 
Commission, operate every week day a passenger train con c isting of an 
engine and at least one passenger coach, scheduled to leave Fond du Lac 
at 7:40 in the morning and arrive at Duluth at 8:20 in the morning; return-

ing, leaving Duluth at 5:30 in the afternoon, arriving at Fond du Lac at 
6:10; and that said trains stop at all stations between Fond du Lac and Du- 
luth for the purpose of receiving and discharging passengers.

RATE CASES. 

HAY AND STRAW MINIMUM WEIGHTS. 

On September 7th, 1906, formal complaint was filed with the 
Commission, and on September nth the companies were required 
to satisfy the complaint within twenty days of service or file answer 
thereto, complaint being as follows: 

BEFORE THE RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION OF 
THE STATE OF MINNESOTA. 

Loftus-Hubbard Elevator Company, a corporation, and George S. Loftus, 

Complainants, 
vs. 

The Northern Pacific Railway Company, 

The Great Northern Railway Company, 

The Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railway Company, 

The Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis and Omaha Railway Company, 

The Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railway Company, 

The Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad Company, 

The Chicago Great Western Railway Company,

The Minneapolis and St. Louis Railroad Company, 

The Chicago and North-Western Railway Company, 

The Illinois Central Railroad Company, 

The Duluth, Missabe and Northern Railway Company, and 

Duluth and Iron Range Railroad Company, Respondents. 

Complainants allege: 

That the Loftus-Hubbard Elevator Company is a corporation, organized 
tinder the laws of the State of Minnesota, and engaged in buying, selling 
and dealing in hay and other farm products, and in conducting its business 
ships hay over the lines of the respondents above named. 

The respondents, and each of them, maintain and enforce certain tariff 
rules and regulations concerning the shipment of hay, and the minimum 
weight upon which the freight charges are enforced are based upon the 
dimensions of the car used in shipment. These tariff rules and regulations 
concerning minimum weights, art unjust and unfair in their application to 
shippers, and result in many instances in extorting excessive rates, and 
compel complainants and other shippers to pay freight on hay in excess of 
the quantity actually shipped. Under these tariff rules and regulations, and 
the manner in which they are enforced by the respondents, the complain- 
ants and other shippers are compelled to use cars, insufficient in capacity 
to hold the minimum weight upon which freight is charged, and discrimin- 
ation thereby results. 



I06- TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

Wherefore complainants ask that an order be entered herein, directed 
to respondents and each of them, prohibiting them from enforcing any rule 
providing for a minimum weight in a shipment of hay in excess of the 
capacity of the car furnished, and for such other and further relief as may 
be just and proper.

My commission expires Nov. 15, 1912. 

The railroad companies cited herein filed answers to the com- 
plaint, alleging that the cars furnished by the companies for the 
purpose of carrying hay and straw were of sufficient capacity to 
hold the minimum weights as prescribed by their tariffs. 

On January 15th, 1907, a hearing was ordered to take place 
February 5th, 1907, at the office of the Commission; and at that 
date the respective railroad companies were represented by their 
traffic officials, the Loftus-Hubbard Elevator Company being rep- 
resented by Mr. G. W. Gorman. 

Testimony was taken by official stenographer, after which a 
general discussion followed between the representatives present 
and the Commission ; from which it developed that the rules in force 
in the Western Trunk Line Association territory as to hay and 
straw minimum would be satisfactory if applied to the whole of 
the State of Minnesota. 

On February 25th, 1907, the Commission issued the following 
order, which finally disposed of the case :

IOS TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

APPLICATION FOR A SPECIAL SWITCHING RATE ON OLD PAPER. 

In the matter of the petition of Mr. Jacob Firestone, asking the 
Commission to give authority to the C, St. P., M. & O. Ry. Co. 
to put in a switching rate of $1.50 per car for waste paper 
shipped from their team track at Prince street to petitioner's 
warehouse at East St. Paul. 

The hearing in this matter took place on May 10th, 1907. Be- 
sides the Commission there were present Mr. Jacob Firestone, Mr. 
B. Firestone and Mr. Hiram D. Frankel, their attorney. The C, 
St. P., M. & O. Ry. Co. was represented by Mr. E. B. Ober, Gen- 
eral Freight Agent. 

The above petition was the outcome of a letter which the Com- 
mission received from the General Freight Agent of the C, St. P., 
M. & O. Ry. Co., in which he asked permission from the Commis- 
sion to put in a rate on scrap paper of $1.50 per car from theiir 
Prince street team track to petitioners warehouse at East St. Paul, 
which was denied by the Commission on the grounds that switching 
between the same points is provided for in a tariff making the rate 
$5.00 per car. 

It developed at the hearing that the character of the shipments 
of loose paper is something out of common, the commodity itself 
being, strictly speaking, of no commercial value in its loose state, 
it being collected from the mercantile industries in St. Paul and 
loaded loosely into a freight car at the Prince street sidetrack, a 
car of which would not exceed 6,000 lbs., the cars being switched 
to East St. Paul, where the contents is taken out, sorted, cleaned 
and baled and shipped from there to Chicago. 

The Commission took the matter under advisement and issued 
the following order: 

(order.) 

BEFORE THE RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION OF 
THE STATE OF MINNESOTA. 

In the matter of the petition of the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha 
Railway Company to establish a switching rate from their team track 
at Prince street, in the City. of .St. Paul, to the warehouse occupied by 
Mr. Jacob Firestone, situated at Duluth Avenue in East St. Paul, on 
the tracks of said Company, and the complaint of Mr. Firestone against 
said Company that the present switching rate of F^ye Dollars ($5.00) 
is unreasonable. 

It apearing by the evidence that Mr. Firestone is engaged in the busi- 
ness of collecting waste paper in the City of St. Paul and snipping it to his 
warehouse, where it is sorted, cleaned and baled for shipment to Chicago 



RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. IOQ 

t 

and other markets; that for some time he has enjoyed a rate of One Dollar 
and Fifty Cents ($1.50) for switching cars of loose paper from the team 
track at Prince street to his warehouse, on the Company's tracks at East 
St. Paul. 

There can only be about five or six thousand pounds of loose paper 
loaded in a car; there is a very small margin of profit for the dealer that 
collects this paper and renovates it and ships it to market. If the regular 
switching charge of Five Dollars ($5.00) per car is charged for the service 
performed by the railway company, it would more than absorb the profits 
of the business. The Commission is therefore of the opinion that it is not 
an unequal or unreasonable preference or advantage to allow the company 
to charge a switching rate of One Dollar and Fifty Cents ($1.50) for this 
service and maintain their regular rate as to other articles. 

It is therefore ordered, that until the further order of this Commission, 
the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha Railway Company be granted 
leave to file a switching tariff of One Dollar and Fifty Cents ($1.50) per 
car from their team track at Prince street in St. Paul, on loose waste 
paper, to the company's tracks in East St. Paul.

Grain Rates, Waseca to Minneapolis. — June 13th, 1907, Hori. 
John Moonan of Waseca wrote the Commission regarding the 
difference in grain rates, Waseca, to Minneapolis, as published re- 
spectively by the M. & St. L. and C. & N. W. Railways, the M. & 
St. L. R..R. being the short line between the two points. 

The question was brought to the attention of the C. & N. W. 
Ry. Co., which expressed its willingness to meet the short line 
rates, provided the Commission would permit them to waive the 
long and short haul provision of the statute. This the Commis- 
sion declined to grant, conforming in this respect to their previous 
uniform action with regard to similar applications. Mr. Moonan, 
the complainant, was accordingly advised.

Secretary. 

Dated St. Paul, Minn., July 1, 1907. 

A hearing was held on the 6th day of July, 1907, in accordance 
with notice, to consider the question of the reasonableness of the 
switching charges via the Chicago Great Western Railway and the

loads at Dayton's Bluff for delivery to the- Stockyards Terminal 
Railway Company which would be on the basis of $2.50 per car, 
and the Commission- finally ruled that it would grar\t a continuance 
of the hearing until Saturday morning, August 3rd, at ten o'clock, 
so as to give the railroad companies an opportunity to perfect their 
arrangements, if possible, without interference on the part of the 
Commission. 

Adjourned hearings took place on August 3rd, September 10th, 
October 29th, and a final hearing on November 12th, 1907, at which 
all arrangements were perfected, wherfeby the old charges were re- 
stored without the necessity of an order. 

Switching Rates to State Fair Grounds. — A request was filed 
by Loftus-Hubbard Elevator Co., August 28th, 1907, for a ruling 
as to the application of a $3.00 switching charge on cars loaded in 
St. Paul destined to State Fair Grounds. 

The Commission ruled that said switching rate should not ap- 
ply on shipments loaded in the Twin Cities on other tracks than 
those of the G. N. Ry., as such an application of the rate would be 
a discrimination against the shippers who were compelled to load 
cr. the Great Northern tracks, who would have to pay local rates in 
view of the latter named railway being the only line having direct 
delivery to the State Fair Grounds.

Each of the respondents were advised to satisfy the complaint in 
question or file an answer thereto, which answers were received from 
the respective companies, after which a hearing was ordered to take 
place on Tuesday, November 13, 1906, which was postponed to a 
later date to be fixed by the Commission.

112 TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

This matter was taken up by the complainant with the secretary 
of the St. Paul Jobbers' Association, with the result that no date 
for hearing could be fixed, and on the further application of the 
Commission for information whether they were prepared to go on 
with the case, they were advised on June 5, 1907, that the case 
would t>e withdrawn. 

COMPLAINT OF UNLAWFUL SWITCHING CHARGES BY MINNESOTA 
TRANSFER RAILWAY COMPANY. 

Central Warehouse Company, Complainant, 

vs. 
Minnesota Transfer Railway Company, Respondent. 

On the 18th of May, 1907, the complainant filed a statement with 
the Commission showing that it had been charged $5.00 per car with 
a minimum of 30 cents per ton for switching by the Minnesota 
Transfer Railway Company on shipments from its warehouses on 
respondent's tracks to be switched to respondent's central warehouse, 
which prior to October 30, 1906, had moved on the basis of $1.50 
per car. 

The Minnesota Transfer Railway Company advanced the rates 
to $5.00 per car with a minimum of 30 cents per ton without the 
consent of the Commission, as required by law, thereby making the 
advanced tariff illegal. 

A formal hearing in the matter w r as held before the Commis- 
sion on May 21, 1907, at which testimony was taken, and after 
advisement the Commission decided in favor of the complainant 
and ordered reparation to be made by the Minnesota Transfer Rail- 
way Company to said complainant in the sum of $596.08, with in- 
terest on the overcharge on each carload from the date of its pay- 
ment, as shown in the following order: 

BEFORE THE RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION OF 
THE STATE OF MINNESOTA. 

Central Warehouse Company, St. Paul, Complainant, 

vs. 
Minnesota Transfer Railway Company, Respondent. 

This matter was submitted to the Commission by the parties without 
any formal hearing, with request that it be decided as speedily as possible. 

The complainants appeared by Messrs. Stevens & Stevens, its attor- 
neys, and defendant by W. H. Norris, Esq., its attorney. 

From the evidence introduced on the hearing and the records of the 
office of the Commission, the Commission finds as facts: 



RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. II3 

That the complainant is a corporation organized and incorporated 
under the laws of the State of Minnesota, and is and has for a long time 
been doing a storage and forwarding busines at the City of Saint Paul, 
State of Minnesota. 

The defendant is a corporation organized and incorporated under the 
laws of Minnesota, and is doing a general transfer business between the 
lines of the several railroads, its stockholders, that connect with the tracks 
of defendant in Ramsey county in this state; that all of defendant's track- 
age is within the State of Minnesota; that all of the following named rail- 
road companies are stockholders of the defendant, viz.: 

Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad Company; Chicago Great West- 
ern Railway Company; Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway Company; 
Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific Railway Company; Chicago, St. Paul, Min- 
neapolis & Omaha Railway Company; Great Northern Railway Company; 
Minneapolis & St. Louis Railroad Company; Minneapolis, St. Paul & Sault 
Ste. Marie Railway Company; Northern Pacific Railway Company; Wiscon- 
sin Central Railway Company, and each of said companies' tracks connect 
with the tracks of defendant and defendant's tracks are a part of the tracks 
of each of said railway companies and stations and industries located on 
defendant's tracks are for all purposes of transportation located on the 
tracks of each of the said railroad companies and all of said railroad com- 
panies are common carriers of freight in this state. 

It is part of defendant's business to transfer freight both in carloads 
and less than carloads from any one of the lines of any of said carriers to 
the line of any other of said carriers when the same is to be shipped over 
the line of said carrier to a point on its line or to points beyond, reached 
by its connections. 

There are several warehouses and industries belonging to shippers sit- 
uated on the tracks of defendant, one of which is owned by the complain- 
ant. 

The defendant for the purpose of conducting its business has a large 
central warehouse located on its tracks into which is received less than 
carload freight to be sorted and distributed to the several carriers over 
whose lines it is to be carried to its destination. 

For a long time past, the complainants in their regular course of busi- 
ness as storers and forwarders have had for the purpose of conducting its 
business a large central warehouse into which less than carload freight is 
delivered to be there distributed to the several railroads reaching the differ- 
ent places to which such freight is consigned. 

That for a long time the complainant has in their regular business of 
storers an<J forwarders collected large quantities of less than carload freight 
in their warehouse for the purpose of shipment over the lines of the differ- 
ent carriers whose tracks connect with defendant and loaded said freight 
into cars furnished by defendant, which said loaded cars have been switched 
by defendant from complainant's warehouse to the central warehouse of 
defendant at the rate of One Dollar and Fifty Cents ($1.50) per car, that 
being the charge provided by the regular published tariff of defendant for 
that service, which said tariff was in full force and effect during all the year 
1906, and is still in force and on file with the Railroad and Warehouse 
Commission; that said Railroad and Warehouse Commission has never 
given its consent in writing, or otherwise, to charge more than the rate 
provided in said tariff. 

During the year 1906 and 1907 and prior to the 15th day of May, 1907, 
the complainant offered to defendant for shipment or switching from its 
warehouse on defendant's track, a large number of cars, to-wit: One hun- 
dred and sixty (160) loaded with freight to be switched to defendant's cen- 
tral warehouse and there unloaded and the contents shipped over the lines 
of the various carriers served by defendant. 

The defendant refused to receive and switch said cars unless com- 
plainant would pay a rate of thirty (30) cents per ton, which rate com- 



114 TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

plainants were forced to and did pay under protest to the amount of Eight 
Hundred Thirty-six and 08-100 Dollars ($836.08), in order to get said cars 
switched, while all defendants were legally entitled to receive under the 
tariff was the sum of Two Hundred Forty Dollars ($240.00) for such serv- 
ice. 

Without deciding on the reasonableness of the rate, the Commission 
held that under the published tariff, defendant was only entitled to receive 
the rate of One Dollar and Fifty Cents ($1.50) per car for the service per- 
formed in switching complainant's cars and that complainant is entitled to 
reparation. 

It is therefore ordered, that as reparation for the overcharge made by 
defendant, it forthwith pay the complainant the sum of Five Hundred 
Ninety-six and 08-100 Dollars ($596.08), with interest on the overcharge on 
each carload from the date of its payment. 

By the Commission,

Secretary. 

Dated St. Paul, Minn., June 5, 1907. 

On July 13th, 1907, a notice was served on the Commission 
that the respondent in question had appealed to the District Court 
of Ramsey county from the order of the Commission in the above 
entitled matter, and the same is set for trial for January 27th, 1908. 



APPLICATION BY MINNESOTA TRANSFER RAILWAY CO. TO ESTABLISH 
CERTAIN SWITCHING CHARGES. 

Pursuant to notice a hearing in the matter of the switching 
charges at Minnesota Transfer took place, August 26th, 1907, the 
question to be determined being the reasonableness of the rate of 
30 cents per ton with a minimum of $5.00 per car for switching 
between industries at the Transfer. 

Beside the Commission the following parties were present: 

Minnesota Transfer Ry. — W. II. Norris, Attorney; M. J. Dooley, Su-

Testimony was taken by Official Stenographer Powers.

RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. II5 

After the testimony was all in it was agreed that briefs would 
be submitted by Attorneys Wheelwright and Stevens within five . 
days, after which the Commission would take the matter under 
advisement. On September *i6th, 1907, the Commission made its 
order as follows : 

BEFORE THE RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION OF 
THE STATE OF MINNESOTA. . 

In the matter of the application of the Minnesota Transfer Railway Com- 
pany to establish certain switching charges. 

This matter came before the Commission upon an application of the 
Minnesota Transfer Railway Company to change its switching charges by 
filing a switching tariff which reads: 

"Between any industry on the Minnesota Transfer Railway or on any 
track operated by it and any other industry, freight house or team track on 
the Minnesota Transfer Railway or on any track operated by it, the charge 
to be 30 cents per ton; minimum $5.00 per car." 

This application was plated September 15, 1906, and shortly afterward 
filed with the Commission. Several hearings have been had thereon, in 
which the Transfer Company appeared by W. H. Norris, its attorney, and 
Messrs. Cobb & Wheelwright appeared as attorneys for some of the pro- 
testants. Mr. A. B. Stickney appeared on behalf of the Chicago Great 
Western Railway Company and Messrs. Stevens & Stevens in behalf of the 
Central Warehouse Company. 

At the time of making this application there was in existence and on 
file with the Commission a tariff issued by said Transfer Company arid 
undep date of June 5, 1905, which established a switching rate by carload 
lots. 

It will be seen that in the tariff offered the company desired to make a 
radical change by establishing a tonnage rate for this service with a $5.00 
minimum. In both St. Paul and Minneapolis the switching rates are estab- 
lished by carload lots. Minnesota Transfer is a station on each of the 
several railroads that own its stock. It is difficult to see why the switching 
business at the Transfer should be upon any different basis than that of the 
Twin Cities. Indeed, several of the witnesses testified that industries on 
the Transfer should be put upon the same basis as on the same track of 
individual carriers in St. Paul and Minneapolis, and the evidence showjs 
that for that kind of switching the companies have been charging a rate of 
$1.50; and the Commission are of the opinion that under all the facts in the 
case that such a rate is reasonable comparing it with the same service per- 
formed in the Twin Cities. 

The service performed in switching cars from the local industries sit- 
uated upon the tracks of the Minnesota Transfer to the central distributing 
warehouse of the Transfer Company is purely a drayage business. The 
company having furnished stations on its lines where deliveries of less than 
carload freight can be made, it \nay be doubtful whether it could be re- 
quired to perform this drayage; and the Commission are of the opinion 
that a rate of $5.00 for such service is reasonable. 

It is therefore ordered, that the rates for switching by the Minnesota 
Transfer Railway Company be fixed and established as follows: 

Per car. 
For cars switched from one industry to another industry on any of 

the tracks of said company $1.50 

For all cars moved from any industry on the tracks of said company 

to the central or distributing warehouse of said company 5.00 



Il6 TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

It is further ordered, that until the further order of this Commission 
the Minnesota Transfer Railway Company be and hereby is forbidden from 
charging any greater charge for the service herein mentioned than that 
provided by this order. 

That this order take effect ten (10) days after its service.

EXPRESS CLASSIFICATION OF ACIDS AND BATTERIES. 

In the matter of the application of the Wells-Fargo Express 
Company to change its classification relating to acids and batter- 
ies, which change was acquiesced in by all the express companies 
doing business in this state excepting the American and National 
Express Companies. 

Pursuant to notice, a hearing was held June 20, 1907. Besides 
the Commission the following parties were present : D. S. Elliott, 
representing the Great Northern and Northern Express Companies ; 
J. W. Owens, representing the Adams Express Company; Frank 
B. Daniels, representing the American and National Express Com- 
panies, and H. W. Nelson, representing the Western Express Com- 
pany. 

Testimony was taken by the official stenographer. The hearing 

was more in the nature of a conference, and it became evident that 

" to take batteries out of the classification would work a hardship on 

automobile manufacturers and owners, which was shown by several 

letters on file with the Commission. 

After considerable discussion the Commission took the matter 
under advisement and issued the following ortler : 



RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. II7 

BEFORE THE RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION OF 
THE STATE OF MINNESOTA. 

In the matter of the Express Classification for the State of Minnesota. 

This matter came before the Commission in a letter from the Wells- 
Fargo Express Company, asking to amend the classification on batteries. 

A hearing was held at the office of the Commission in St. Paul on 
Thursday, the 20th day of June, all express companies doing business in 
Minnesota having been notified of said hearing. 

The Great Northern and Northern Express Companies appeared by 
Mr. D. S. Elliott, the Adams Express Company by Mr. J. W. Owen, the 
American and National Express Companies by Frank B. Daniels, and the 
Western Express Company by Mr. H. W. Nelson. No other companies 
appeared. 

After hearing the evidence and the arguments of the several gentlemen 
present, It is ordered, that the express classification for the State of Min- 
nesota be and the same is hereby amended as follows: 

1st. Acids: Dangerous or inflammable, refused. — (See Batteries.) 

2nd. Batteries: Strike out all after the word "batteries" and substi- 
tute therefor the following: 

"Batteries containing liquid solution of vitrol, sulphuric or other acids

MISCELLANEOUS COMPLAINTS. 

COMPLAINT OF UNREASONABLE RULE REGARDING RECEIPT OF 
FREIGHT SHIPMENTS. 

The Draymen's Association of Minneapolis, through its attor- 
ney and secretary, Mr. W. M. Babcock, filed a complaint setting 
forth that the freight agents of the various railway companies in 
the city had adopted an arbitrary rule closing all freight houses at 
five o'clock P. M. sharp, and refuse to receive freight from teams 
that are not in line at the freight house until after the hour named. 
It was alleged by the complaint that this caused considerable loss 
and hardship to the draymen, as they were obliged to pay their 
teamsters until six o'clock P. M., and the short time allowed is not 
sufficient to permit them to deliver the freight ready for shipment 
each day, thus causing delay and inconvenience to all concerned. 



Il8 TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

The Commission fixed a date for hearing, giving notice to rail- 
way agents and others interested, which came on pursuant to notice 
and was attended by numerous representatives of both sides to the 
controversy. Considerable testimony was submitted, followed by 
a. general discussion. The matter was then taken under advise- 
ment by the Commission, which was followed by their conclusions, 
rendered January 3rd, 1907, wherein they found that taking into 
consideration the interests of the railway companies and the ship- 
pers of freight, the hour of five o'clock seemed to be more reasona- 
ble and satisfactory to the greater number of parties interested, and 
they did not deem it wise to extend the hour beyond five o'clock P. 
M. in view of the evidence submitted. 

OPPRESSIVE BAGGAGE REGULATIONS. 

A complaint was laid before the Commission on October 18th, 
1906, by Wm. Frederick Lewis of St. Paul, a commercial traveler, 
in which it was alleged that the Great Northern Railway Company, 
in several instances had, through its agent, refused to put his bag- 
gage on the Oriental Limited train, on which he was a passenger, 
stating as a reason that there was insufficient room on said train 
for all his baggage, but that it would be forwarded by the next train. 
It was further alleged by said complaint that in each instance he 
had a prepaid permit, containing no exceptions or conditions, which 
entitled him to the privilege of having his baggage accompany him 
on any train that would carry him on his mileage, and that the 
refusal and failure of the company to send his baggage on the Ori- 
ental Limited train in the instances referred to had caused him 
great loss in time, money and business. 

The complainant asked for a ruling of the Commission on the 
following proposition : 

"Whether or not a railroad company is obliged to transport the 
baggage oi a passenger at the time and on the train on which said 
passenger takes passage." 

This being the first instance in which the Commission had been 
called upon to pass upon this question, it was deemed proper before 
ruling upon the same, to secure the advice of the Attorney General 
on the subject, which was done. 

The opinion will be found under head of Attorney General's 
Opinions, on page 133 of this report. 



RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. 1 19 

On receipt of the Attorney General's views, the complainant 
was advised that the Commission would be pleased to fix a date, 
mutually convenient, at which all parties interested could appear, 
with a view of reaching a proper conclusion of the matter. As a 
result, the hearing took place on April 2nd, 1907, at ten o'clock in 
the forenoon, at the office of the Commission, at which there were 
present, in addition to the Commission, the following* parties: Wm. 
Frederick Lewis of St. Paul, complainant; A. L. Craig, P. T. M., 
G. N. Ry. ; J. M. Dresser, Chrmn. Exec. Com., U. C. T. Associa- 
tion, also Anton Schaefer and S. J. Herbert, members of the said 
Association. 

Wm. Lewis, being duly sworn, testified regarding the numerous 
instances in which he had been subjected to annoyance, delay and 
consequent loss, through failure to secure his baggage on the ar- 
rival of his train at destination, the baggage having been forwarded 
on trains that arrived later than the train on which he had taken 
passage. 

It developed in the testimony that these experiences had occurred 
in cases involving interstate travel exclusively, and in no case of a 
journey strictly between points within the State of Minnesota, thus 
precluding any relief in this complaint by reason of the non-juris- 
diction of the Commission. This having been made clear to parties 
present, Mr. Craig offered to confer with the complainants with a 
view to reaching a satisfactory understanding, if possible, where- 
upon the hearing was adjourned. A conference of the parties im- 
mediately took place and resulted in an amicable settlement of the 
matter and the Commission was notified by the complainant that 
the grievance had been fully satisfied. 

RAILROAD COMPANIES AS COMMON CARRIERS OF LOGS. 

On the 2nd day of July, 1906, the Northern Pacific Railway 
Company and the Minnesota and International Railway Company 
issued a joint notice to owners of timber and logs on their respective 
lines, in which was set forth the following conditions under which 
the companies would move further shipments of this character : 

Gentlemen: These companies have been considerably embarrassed 
this season by the tender of logs for transportation, the owners of such 
logs claiming that they were cut and banked tributary to the Minnesota and 
International lines, with the understanding that these companies having in 
the past handled quantities of logs, would continue to do so, rates being 
made satisfactory. 



120 TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

That there may be no misunderstanding in the future, we desire to 
notify you personally that these companies are not common carriers of 
logs. 

We appreciate that there may be some instances where logs are not 
tributary to water transportation, and where it will be necessary to perform 
some rail service, to prevent great losses to the lumbermen; and where 
special arrangements are made with these companies in advance, before 
the logs are cut and banked, to handle them to some saw mill or industry 
located on our lines, where they can be manufactured and the product 
shipped over our road, — we will try to furnish equipment necessary for 
moving same; such movement must be confined, however, to mill points 
on the Minnesota & International or Northern Pacific roads. 

Yours truly, 

J. M. HANNAFORD, 
Second Vice-President N. P. Ry. Company. 
W. H. GEMMELL, 
General Manager M. & I. Ry. Co. 

A copy of the foregoing circular having subsequently been laid 
before the Commission for their consideration and their conclusions 
with reference thereto, a communication, embodying the views and 
ruling of the Commission, of which the following is a copy was 
addressed to the respective railway companies interested: 

St. Paul, Minn., Oct. 10th, 1906. 
W. H. Gemmell, Esq., G. M., Minnesota & International Ry., St. Pauil, 

Minn. 
J. M. Hannaford, Esq., 2nd Vice Pres., Northern Pacific Ry., S^. Paul, 

Minn. 

Gentlemen: The Commission is in receipt of copy of order or cir- 
cular letter issued by your respective companies under date of July 2nd, 
of logs, and further say: 

"We appreciate that there may be some instances where logs are nfc>t 
tributary to water transportation, and where it will be necessary to perform 
some rail service, to prevent great losses to the lumbermen; and where 
special arrangements are made with these companies in advance, before the 
logs are cut and banked, to handle them to some saw mill or industry 
located on our lines, where they can be manufactured and the produce 
shipped over our road — we will try to furnish equipment necessary for 
moving same; such movement must be confined, however, to mill points 
on the Minnesota & International or Northern Pacific roads." 

The Commission desires me to inform you that in its opinion both rail- 
road companies are common carriers of all kinds of freight that may be 
tendered them for shipment, and that you are bound to carry logs when 
they are so offered, and that you cannot limit their carriage to industries or 
mills located on the lines of your roads, but are bound to move them to 
any point upon your lines or to a point connecting with any other carrier 
upon your lines, and your failure to do this would be a violation of tWc 
laws of this state, and the Commission directs that you receive at any points 
upon your respective lines all logs that are offered for shipment and trans- 
port them to such other stations or points upon your lines as the shipper 
may designate. 

Yours truly, 

A. C. CLAUSEN, 
Secretary.

RULES OF EXPRESS COMPANIES COVERING COLLECTIONS ON COM- 
MERCIAL PAPER. 

In December, 1906, the Northwestern Marble Works at Crooks- 
ton, filed complaint that under a ruling of the Northern Express' 
Company, they were being deprived of the privilege of sending out 
for collection the notes of their customers at an earlier date than 
twenty days before maturity ; that these notes were received in the 
usual course of business and were; drawn payable at maker's option 
"on or before" a certain date, generally the first of November or 
December, but as a matter of practice a large percentage of them 
were paid before the time when they became finally due, in order 
to save interest. The complainants therefore solicited the aid of 
the Commission to secure some arrangement with the express com- 
pany whereby they could, to a reasonable extent, exercise their 
personal judgment as to when these notes should be forwarded for 
collection, claiming that the general conditions of the business, as 
well as former practice of the company would justify such conces- 
sion. 

The matter having been brought to the attention of the North- 
ern Express Company, more or less correspondence ensued, in 
which the company declined to accept and hold commercial paper 
five or six weeks in advance of its maturity on the chance of its 
being paid before it was finally due, calling attention to the classi- 
fication printed by all express companies, which provides as follows : 

"Collections must not be received more than twenty days before 
they are due, unless shipper states in writing that the payor has sig- 
nified his intention to pay the collection upon presentation, or ivithin 
tzventy days; such paper if unpaid before the time indicated, must 
be returned to shipper. 

"Unless instructed to the contrary, agents will return all their 
unpaid notes and drafts within ten days after having notified ship- 
per of non-payment of the collection. ,, 

It was further set forth by the company that all the express 
companies undertake to do in the collection business is to make 
prompt presentation of the paper, and if payment is refused, to 
return it at once; that the company does not refuse to accept the 
collection of said complainants where offered in compliance with the 
provisions of the classification above quoted, which apply, without 
discrimination, to all shippers in the state, including the banks and 
other large interests. 



122 TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

The Commission finding that no serious hardship or discrimina- 
tion was imposed upon the complainants by the present rules and 
classification did not feel justified in requiring the express com- 
panies to make any further modification therein. 

VALIDITY OF RAILROAD PASS GIVEN UNDER CONTRACT. 

A communication was received from Mr. J. R. Dalton of Gra- 
nada, under date of January 7th, 1907, stating that he held a con- 
tract with the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Ry. Co. whereby he 
was granted a pass annually over the company's system in consid- 
eration of his grant to the company of the right to build their line 
through his farm property, the pass privilege to continue so long as 
the company was permitted to use the la.nd in question. 

In view of the enactment by the 1907 legislature of Chapter 449, 
General Laws 1907, prohibiting the granting of any free pass or 
special privilege to any person, which was withheld from any other 
person, Mr. Dalton requested the Commission to inform him as to 
whether the provisions of the Minnesota law would affect his right 
under the condition named to enjoy the use of the pass in question, 
and further requested that a ruling be secured from the Interstate 
Commerce Commission at Washington, D. C, as to his right to 
use said pass in connection with interstate travel. 

The Commission found that as far as the Minnesota law pro- 
vides, there is no restriction therein which would deprive him of 
his rights under the contract with the Milwaukee Company, as far 
as it affects travel between points within the state. 

The question having been submitted to the Interstate Commerce 
Commission for a ruling in its relation to Interstate travel, that de- 
partment held that it would be a violation of the Interstate Com- 
nierce laws as they now exist, for the company to provide such 
transportation, and that if Mr. Dalton has any equitable claim aris- 
ing from the contract, it would be a proper subject for adjustment 
between himself and the railway company. 

engineers' and surveyors' tools as personal baggage. 

On March 27, 1906, a petition was received by the Commission 
from the Minnesota Surveyors' and Engineers' Society, assembled 
in annual meeting at St. Cloud, requesting consideration of the 
question of transporting the equipment of surveyors and engineers 
excepting transits, levels, compasses and similar instruments es- 



RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. 1 23 

pecially liable to injury, as baggage on the passenger trains of the 
state, such baggage to include only tripods, poles, bars, axes, stakes, 
tapes and similar tools, which under present conditions could be 
transported by express only. 

It was further represented by the petitioners that it was abso- 
lutely essential that the equipment of surveyors and engineers 
should accompany them as a part of their necessary personal effects 
cr baggage and that they were entitled to such concession equally 
with travelers carrying camping and sporting outfits, mechanics' 
tools and similar equipment now being regarded and treated as per- 
sonal baggage. That surveyors' and engineers 1 equipment is, as a 
rule, carried in lieu of, rather than in addition to, other baggage 
aiid is no more liable to injury than other baggage commonly car- 
ried on passenger trains throughout the state. 

A copy of the petition was laid before the passenger departments 
of the various railway companies, which elicited a favorable re- 
sponse from several of them and replies of a contrary character from 
oihers. 

In order to bring the matter to a definite conclusion, the Com- 
mision gave notice of a hearing to take place September 17, 1906, 
at their office, which came on pursuant to notice, the following par- 
ties being present besides the Commission: A. L. Craig, G. P. A., 
G. N. Ry.; A. B. Smith, A. G. P. A., N. P. Ry.; A. E Morgan, 
Secretary of the Minnesota Surveyors' and Engineers' Association. 
The subject at issue was quite fully discussed in all its bearings, but 
it was concluded by the Commission that another hearing would be 
necessary to ensure a more complete expression from the railway 
companies, whereupon the meeting was adjourned subject to the call 
of the Commission. 

Formal notice of another hearing to occur on Tuesday, Feb- 
ary 19, 1907, at ten o'clock A. M.,. was served on the various 
companies and on the petitioners. At the request of a number of 
the companies a postponement was granted till March 19, 1907. 

The hearing came on as appointed. Besides the Commission 
representatives of the following railway companies were present: 
Northern Pacific, Great Northern, "Soo" Railway, Minneapolis & 
St. Louis R. R., Wisconsin Central, Chicago Great Western, Chi- 
cago & Northwestern, Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha, 
Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific, Wisconsin Central and Chicago, 
Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway. E. W. Coolidge and Nathan But- 
ler of Minneapolis appeared in behalf of the petitioners. 



124 TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

The complaint and petition was presented, also numerous sup- 
plemental letters and petitions in support of same. Testimony and 
argument were submitted by the representatives of the complainants 
to emphasize the importance and necessity for the privilege re- 
quested. G. H. MacRae, A. G. P. Agt. of the C, St. P., M. & O. 
Ry., and representing also the Chicago & Northwestern Ry. Co., 
submitted the views of the several railway companies. After a 
general discussion a proposition in settlement of the question was 
offered by Mr. McRae, which seemed to meet with general appro- 
val and was" accepted by the Commission. 

Pursuant thereto the Commission made the following order, to 
take effect April I, 1907: 

BEFORE THE RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION OF 
THE STATE OF MINNESOTA. 

In the matter of the complaint and petition of the Minnesota Surveyors' 
and Engineers' Society, asking for a ruling requiring the various rail- 
way companies of the state to include surveyors' and engineers' tools 
and equipment as baggage, a formal hearing took place this day before 
this Commission, at which representatives of various railways were 
present. As a result, a proposition was submitted by the representa- 
tives of the companies present which was accepted by the Commission. 
It was further understood and agreed that the new regulations should 
become effective April 1, 1907.- Pursuant thereto the Commission 
makes the following order: 

That effective April 1, 1907, the following articles as defined by the 
Minnesota Surveyors' and Engineers' Society shall be carried by the vari- 
ous railways in the state in baggage cars between stations in Minnesota on 
the following terms: 

(1) Tripods, leveling rods, flag poles, sounding rods, stakes, axes and 
other implements necessary to the engineers' work; such as shovel'and pick, 
also chain and pins. 

(2). These articles shall be securely tied in bundles and where sharp 
metal points, axe blades, etc., are exposed shall be covered securely by a 
suitable cap or cover. 

(3) The various bundles or packages shall be tagged by owner with 
his name and destination. 

(4) Each package or bundle shall be checked in the usual manner at 
"Owner's Risk." 

150 pounds of personal baggage including surveyor's outfit specified 
above shall be checked free for each passenger. Any weight in excess of 
150 pounds shall be charged for at the published excess baggage rate.

FREE DELIVERY OF EXPRESS PACKAGES AT MIDWAY DISTRICT. 

On March 2nd a letter was received from Hon. Joseph M. 
Hackney, in which he stated that a delegation of Midway District 
people had waited upon him concerning the failure to deliver ex- 
press packages free in the Midway District, as against^ the free de- 
livery in St. Paul and Minneapolis. 

The Commission opened up an informal investigation on this 
subject, and on April 19th advised Mr. Hackney that from what 
investigation had been made it was convinced that it would be un- 
reasonable to order express companies to deliver packages free in 
the Midway District on account of the small amount of business 
done, and for the further reason that the extra expense involved in 
performing this service would in most cases cause the express com- 
panies to do this particular business at a loss. 

Mr. Hackney was also advised that if this was not satisfactory 
the Commission would open up a thorough investigation on receipt 
of a formal- complaint, which would result in a public hearing at 
which both sides could be heard and the matter determined upon its 
merits. 

DANGEROUS CROSSING. 

Dangerous Crossing at Tenstrike. — On May 20, 1907, the Vil- 
lage authorities of Ten Strike, on the Minnesota & International 
Railway, callecl the attention of the Commission to the existence of 
a dangerous street crossing in said village, and filed a copy of a 
resolution adopted by said authorities setting forth that the crossing 
in question was dangerous to life and property for the reason that 
the said railway, at the point where the street crosses the track, 
passes through a deep cut, thereby making the crossing considerably 
lower than the street and making approaching trains invisible to 
persons intending to cross until they are within a few feet of said 
railway. Said complaint embodied a petition that the Commission 
cause an official investigation to be made with a view of furnishing 
such protection as might be found necessary. 

After more or less correspondence with the company, it was 
found necessary to hold a public hearing, which was assigned for 
Thursday, August 8, 1907, and took place at said village on that 
date. Considerable evidence was presented by citizens of the vil- 
lage and its local officers to establish the necessity for a flagman or 
some suitable safety device to prevent accidents. A careful exam- 



126 TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

ination of the crossing and its surrounding conditions was made by 
the Commission, after which the hearing was closed. 

On August 29, 1907, the findings and order of the Commission 
v\ said matter were made as follows: 

(order.) 

BEFORE THE RAILROAE) AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION OF 
THE STATE OF MINNESOTA. 

In the matter of the complaint of the Village Council and citizens of Ten- 
strike, Beltrami County, Minnesota, of a dangerous crossing in said 
Village on the line of the Minnesota & International Railway Com-» 
pany. 

The complaint in this matter having been duly served upon the Minne- 
sota & International Railway Company, and a hearing of such complaint 
having been had at the Village of Tenstrike on August 8th, the complain- 
ants appearing by S. E. Thompson, Esq., the Village President, and other 
citizens, and the Railroad Company having appeared by W.' H. Gemmell, 
General Manager; after an examination of the crossing in question and 
hearing the evidence, the Commission find: x 

The Minnesota & International Railway Company is a corporation ex- 
isting under the laws of the State of Minnesota and is operating a railroad 
from Bemidji, running in a northeasterly direction, passing through Ten- 
strike, arn incorporated village of over three hundred population, as shown 
by the last state census. 

The business and residence portion of said village is situate on both 
sides of said railroad track. Main street of said village is the only street 
that crosses said railroad track, and approaches said railroad track from 
the west at a very steep grade and ascends a heavy grade after crossing 
the track on the east side thereof, winding around the railroad "track to the 
north. 

The tracks of the railroad immediately north of this crossing pass 
through a deep cut, so that it is imposible to see an approaching train until 
it is within a short distance of the crossing. There is only one school house 
in said village and that is located on the west side of the railroad tracki 
and th,e school children living on the east side of the track are obliged to 
pass over this crossing four times a day in attending school. The stores 
and business places are principally situated- on the west side, and the coun- 
try is more thickly populated on the east side of the track and the settlers 
from that section to do business at Tenstrike, market their products or 
obtain their supplies are obliged to use this crossing. There is a saw mill 
on the east side of the track, and in switching cars to and from this industry 
the trains pass over this crossing. There is a regular passenger train east 
and west each day and a regular scheduled freight train east and west each 
day, besides a number of extra logging trains operated by said road which 
pass over this crossing. 

The Commission find that the crossing at Main street in the Village of 
Tenstrike over the line of said railroad company is dangerous and should 
be protected as hereinafter provided in this order. 

It is therefore ordered, that the Minnesota & International Railway 
Company within ten days after this order is served upon it and until the 
further «rder of the Commission, keen at Main street crossing in the Vil- 
lage of Tenstrike, Beltrami County, Minnesota, a flagman between the hours 
of seven o'clock in the morning and seven o'clock in the evening, whose 
dutv it shall be to warn people and teams who are about to cross its track* 
of approaching trains. 



RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. 1 27 

An electric alarm bell with a track circuit of half a mile, the device to 
be approved by the Comr.iission before its operation, will be deemed a 
compliance with this order.

ris, Attorney. 

Testimony was taken by official stenographer, the main feature 
cf the hearing being alleged discrimination in the time allowed for

allowed for unloading same commodity, which was 72 hours. 

The following parties appeared as witnesses : 

E. C. Best, of E. C. Best & Co., Minneapolis. 

M. C Shields, Manager Terminal Dispatch Association.

128 TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

On May 25th oral arguments were made before the Commission 
by Emerson Hadley, attorney for Northern Pacific Ry. Co. ; W. H. 
Lightner, attorney for Chicago, Burlington & Quincy R. R. Co., 
and by Mr. E. C. Best, the complainant, after which the Commission 
took the case under advisement, and on the same day issued the 
following order: 

BEFORE THE RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION OF 
THE STATE OF MINNESOTA. 

E. C. BEST & COMPANY, Complainants, 

vs. 
THE TERMINAL DISPATCH ASSOCIATION, and the 
Chicago & Northwestern Railway Company, 
Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad Company, 
Chicago Great Western Railway Company, 
Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway Company, 
Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific Railway Company,

Minnesota & International Railway Company, 
Minneapolis Eastern Railway Company, 
Minneapolis Western Railway Company, 
Minnesota Transfer Railway Company, 
Northern Pacific Railway Company, 
Railway Transfer Company of Minneapolis, 
Wisconsin Central Railway Company, Respondents. ,. 

Unreasonable time allowed for reconsigning and reshipping green fruit 
as against the time allowed for unloading the same commodity. 

This matter having come to hearing upon the complaint of E. G. Best 
& Company, in which they charge that the rule of the Terminal Dispatch 
Association allowing twenty-four (24) hours' time in which to reconsign 
green fruit is unreasonable and ask that the Commission fix a time of 
seventy-two (72) hours in which to make such reconsignment: 

The Commission having heard the evidence, and the case having been 
finally submitted for decision on the 25th day of M^iy, 1907, after due con- 
sideration the Commission finds that twenty-four (24) hours is a reasonable 
time in which to give disposition of cars of green fruit for reconsignment. 

It is therefore ordered, that this case be and the same hereby is in all 
things dismissed.

COMPLAINT OF DELAY IN MOVEMENT OF LIVESTOCK SHIPMENTS. 

In the matter of the petition of livestock commission merchants 
of South St. Paul, and other shippers of livestock, complaining of 
inadequate train service on livestock on the lines of the respective 



RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. 1 29 

"railroad companies centering in St. Paul and Minneapolis, and for 
switching said livestock to the stockyards at South St. Paul. 

On August 21, 1906, the Commission received a petition signed 
by most of the commission merchants of South St. Paul, relating 
to the unsatisfactory service performed by the railroad companies 
in getting their stock from point of origin to the South St. Paul 
stockyards in time for the markets. 

This matter was taken up directly by the Commission with the 
general managers of the respective railroad companies, in which a 
hearing was ordered, which .was to have taken place on Friday 
afternoon, August 31, 1906, at two o'clock, but on August 28, 
1906, a request was received from the petitioners in question to 
indefinitely postpone the hearing until further advised. This was 
acquiesced in by the Commission and the case finally disposed of 
without any final order of the Commission. 

Early in November, 1907, a changed condition was brought 
about by arrangements being made for delivery oi livestock to 
the Stockyards Terminal Railway at Dayton's Bluff instead of de- 
livering the same to the Chicago Great Western Railway, as here- 
tofore, at St. Paul. 

Since that time this arrangement has proved very satisfactory, 
and enables shippers to get their stock to South St. Paul for th0 
market each day, and without the unreasonable delays which some- 
times occurred when handled under the former system. 

HASTINGS SWITCHING CASE. 

Early in December, 1906, the attention of the Commission 
was called by a number of business men of the city of Hast- 
ings to the absence of facilities whereby carload lots of mer- 
chandise could be transferred from the tracks of the Chicago, 
Burlington & Quincy Railroad Company within said city to those of 
the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway Company, and that the 
convenience of receivers and shippers of such merchandise would be 
greatly promoted if a suitable arrangement was made between said 
companies, whereby such transfers could be effected. The Com- 
mission was accordingly asked to make an order requiring that 
such facilities be furnished. It was thereupon ordered that a hear- 
irg take place on Wednesday, the 12th day of December, 1906, at 
the office of the Commission, at two o'clock P. M., which order was 
served upon the respective companies requiring that each be and

I3O TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

appear before the Commission at the time and place appointed, to 
show cause why such order should not be made. 

The hearing came on at the appointed time, the citizens of Hast- 
ings being represented by Louis Niedere, F. E. Engel and several 
other leading petitioners. 

The Milwaukee Company appeared by F. W. Root, Esq., its 
solicitor; H. B. Earling, Assistant General Superintendent; J. T. 
Conley, A. G. F. Agt., and W. B. Foster, Division Superintendent. 
The Burlington Company was represented by Geo. P. Lyman, A. 
G. F. Agt. Assistant Attorney Genet^l Stone was present as attor- 
ney for the Commission. 

The evidence tended to show a general sentiment among the 
business men that an urgent necessity existed for transfer facilities 
between the two roads. In the testimony offered by the Milwaukee 
Company, it was sought to establish the fact that its present business 
into and out of Hastings was overtaxing its facilities at said point 
and that the new business proposed could not be undertaken without 
detriment and loss to the company. The attitude of the Burlington 
Company in the case appeared to be of a somewhat disinterested 
character. After testimony and arguments of counsel were con- 
cluded, the matter was taken under advisement by the Commission. 

In reviewing the evidence and facts presented, the Commission 
found that the corporate limits of the City of Hastings extended to 
both sides of the Mississippi river, most of" the various industries 
and business enterprises being on the south side and the station and 
other terminal facilities also being located there. On the north 
side of the river the population is small and the business interests 
likewise limited ; it is on this side that the; Burlington Company 
with its station and terminal facilities is located, being about a mile 
distant from the Milwaukee Company's terminals. Deliveries of 
freight coming in at present over the Burlington line are made by 
haul over a wagon bridge extending across the river to Hastings 
proper. It was to save the delay and expense incident thereto that 
the petition was filed. 

The rulings and practice of the Commission in similar cases for 
many years had been adverse to such applications in view of the 
provisions in Section 3, Chapter 91, G. L. 1895, that no railway 
company is required to use its track or terminal facilities at ter- 
minal points for the handling of cars or traffic of another or com- 
peting company whose line reaches the same point of destination. 



RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. 131 

The adoption of the Revised Code in 1905 effected a change in 
the provision above referred to and on referring the question to the 
Attorney General as to the right of the Commission to make an 
order requiring the Milwaukee Company to perform the service 
sought by the petitioners, it was advised that the 1895 law was not 
continued in form or substance by the new Code, and that Section 
2019, Revised Laws 1905, contained the only provision bearing 
upon the question, holding that under such section the terminals of 
one company in proper cases, might be subjected to the use of traffic 
arriving over the lines of another company. The full text of the 
opinion will be found on page 136 of this report. 

The advice of the Attorney General was also sought on the ques- 
tion as to whether freight shipped into the City of Hastings over the 
Burlington line from points outside of the state and subsequently 
switched across the river for final delivery or re-shipment, could be 
construed as state traffic. On this question it was held that such 
shipments retain their interstate character and were not subject to 
regulation of the Commission, until after actual delivery to the con- 
signee. (See Attorney General's Opinions, page 141.) 

All these facts and conditions were laid before the petitioners 
and they were advised by the Commission that it was ready to make 
any reasonable and consistent order in the premises that would 
assist in bringing the desired relief. The matter having been under 
consideration by the petitioners, the Commission was advised on 
December 30, 1907, that no further action at the time was desired.

♦As to whether the C, M. & St P. Ry. Co. and the Western Union 
Telegraph Co. can be compelled to re-establish telegraph facilities at Zum- 
bro Falls. 

OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL. 

St. Paul, August. 21, 1903. 
Hon. A. C. Clausen, Sec'y R. R. & W. H. Commissioners, City. 

Dear Sir: In reply to your favor of August 13th, in which you submit 
correspondence of P. T. Tappan of Zumbro Falls and officers of the Chi- 
cago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Ry. Co., with reference to the re-establishment 
by said railway company of telegraph facilities in the Village of Zumbro 
Falls, I beg to say: 

It appears from the correspondence submitted that the telegraph serv- 
ice has been furnished by the Western Union Telegraph Company to. the 
railway company along its line of road, and that commercial service was 
given the public at this station by the said telegraph company; that the 
railway company has never furnished or attempted to furnish to the public 
at this place any telegraph service and has no relation to the furnishing 
of the same by the telegraph company, except its contract under which the 
telegraph company furnishes the railway necessary service in the opera- 
tion of its line of railroad. 

While the Western Union Telegraph Company is a common carrier 
under the laws of this state, power has not been conferred upon the R. R. 
& W. H. Commission to regulate its relations with the public as to main- 
tenance of stations; and there is no obligation resting upon the Chicago, 
Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway Company to furnish as a part of the trans- 
portation facilities given the public, telegraph facilities along its line. 

As to the railway company the law furnishes no remedy to the peti- 
tioners in this matter. As to the telegraph company, the legislature has 
not enacted any regulation for the establishment and maintenance of sta- 
tions for a general public service or attempted tn any way to provide the 
manner in which these companies shall serve the public except in the trans- 
mission and delivery of individual messages. Such a regulation as the one 
required in this case is legislative in its character, not judicial, and the ab- 
sence of a statute requiring the maintenance of telegraph stations and a 
general service to the public at certain points leaves the petitioners with- 
out any remedy.

RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. 1 33 

Whether Railroad Companies Can be Compelled to Carry Passengers' Bag- 
gage on Same Train on Which They Travel. 

OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL. 

St. Paul, December 20, 1906. 
Mr. Thomas Yapp, Assistant Secretary Railroad and Warehouse Commis- 
sion. 

Dear Sir: In your communication of October 22nd, addressed to the 
Attorney General, you call attention to the fact that a traveling man makes 
complaint to the Commission because the Great Northern Railway Com- 
pany refuses to carry his baggage on the company's limited train; the com- 
pany claiming the right to refuse to carry such baggage on this train on 
account of a contract with the government to handle mail, which at this 
time of the year is unusually heavy; that should such baggage be carried it 
would encroach on the space provided for other baggage and express and 
that it is not possible to increase the size of the train and make Schedule 
time, and you enclose a copy of a notice sent out by the General Baggage 
Agent of the railway company, which states that trains Nos. 1 and 2, "The 
Oriental Limited," have only limited space for carrying baggage, and when 
necessary the baggage of passengers who travel on "The Oriental Limited" 
will be forwarded by the next train. 

In such a case the Railroad and Warehouse Commission wish answers 
to three questions, as follows: 

"First. Are the railroad companies compelled by law to carry pas- 
sengers' baggage up to 150 pounds on the same train as they travel?" 

"Second. Are railroad companies compelled by law to carry passen- 
gers' excess baggage upon the same train as they travel, that is, the excess 
weight over 150 pounds?" 

"Third. If the railroad companies are not compelled under the law to 
carry passengers' baggage as stated above, can the Commission exact these 
conditions?" y 

In answer I will say that, in the absence of a statute, and we have none 
in this state, the general rule with reference to the carrying of the baggage 
of a passenger upon the same train for which he has purchased a ticket and 
is entitled to travel on, can be stated as follows: 

The obligation of a railroad company undoubtedly is to take what- 
ever is delivered and received as baggage from a passenger, in the baggage 
car of a passenger train in which the passenger takes his passage, and take 
it along with and deliver it to the passenger at the place of destination, in 
the usual manner of transporting and delivering baggage. And in this re- 
spect the obligation is the same, whether the baggage is within the quan- 
tity allowed to a passenger to be carried without any charge, other than the 
ordinary fare of the passenger, or whether it is an extra quantity, for which 
an additional charge is made. If it is taken as the baggage of the passen- 
ger, whether ordinary or extra, it is to be carried with the passenger, unless 
there is some agreement to the contrary. 

Therefore the baggage of the passenger, whether within the quantity 
allowed to be carried without charge or whether it exceeds that amount for 



134 TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

which an additional charge is made and paid, must go upon the same train 
with the passenger unless there is some agreement to the contrary, and it 
i.-» clear from the statement of facts in your communication that, while there 
is no agreement to the contrary, there is an express statement and public 
notice given by the railroad company that — 

"Trains Nos. 1 and 2, 'The Oriental Limited,' have only a 
limited space for carrying baggage. When necessary, the bag- 
gage of passengers who travel on the 'Oriental Limited' will be 
forwarded by the next train." 

In other words, the railroad company having only limited space for 
carrying baggage upon "The Oriental Limited" reserves the right, when it 
becomes necessary, to forward the baggage of passengers upon that train, 
by the next train. The passenger purchases his ticket for that train know- 
ing that fact. 

This is an arbitrary rule or regulation established by the railroad com- 
pany with reference to the carrying of baggage upon that particular train, 
and the reasonableness of any such rule or regulation as to the checking 
or carrying of baggage must depend upon the existence of particular facts 
and circumstances; that is, the railroad company unquestionably has the 
right to establish a rule or regulation as to the carrying of baggage upon 
that particular train, but the reasonableness of that rule or regulation must 
depend upon the particular facts and circumstances with reference to the 
running and management of that train. 

The character of the answers to the three questions therefore depends 
upon a decision as to whether the rule or regulation established by the rail- 
road company with reference to carrying baggage upon "The Oriental 
Limited" is reasonable or not. 

The question of the reasonablenes of that rule or regulation is one to 
be decided by the Railroad and Warehouse Commission after investigating 
the facts and circumstances in the case; it is a question of fact to be deter- 
mined from evidence heard by the Commission solely and strictly, and it is 
not a legal question for the officials of this office to pass upon. In other 
words, the Commission, after investigation and having determined whether 
or not the rule established by the railroad company is reasonable, can 
answer the three questions. 

The proper procedure, therefore, of course, would be for the Commis- 
sion to make a thorough investigation of the case and decide whether the 
company is justified in refusing to carry the passengers' baggage upon 
"The Oriental Limited," or whether such rule and regulation is unreasona- 
ble and, if*so determined, after notice and hearing, then notify the railroad 
company to that effect and that the passenger's baggage must, by reason of 
the unreasonableness of such rule and regulation, be carried upon that train. 

Yours truly, 

C. S. JELLEY, Special Counsel.

Question as to Violation of Chapter 176, G. L. 1905, by the Minnesota 
Transfer Railway Company. 

OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL. 

St. Paul, January 17, 1907. 
Hon. C. F. Staples, Railroad and Warehouse Commission, City. 

Dear Sir: In your communication of the 11th inst., which has been 
referred to me, you call the attention 6f the Attorney General to, and ask 
his opinion upon, the action of the Minnesota Transfer Railway Company 
in putting into effect a new schedule of switching charges without first pro- 
curing the consent of the Commission. 

It appears from your letter that the Transfer Company filed a new 
schedule of switching charges with the Commission on September 15th, the 
tariff on its face purporting to be "Effective September 15, 1906." There- 
after and on September 21st the company was advised by the Commission 
that the tariff in question cannot go into effect for the reason that no aonji- 
cation has been made to the Commission for permission to change the. 
switching rates at the Minnesota Transfer as provided in Chapter 176, Gen- 
eral Laws 1905." 

It further appears that the company was advised that it would be nec- 
essary to have a public hearing in the matter. This was undoubtedly the 
proper course, as the proposednew tariff had the effect, as you say, of increas- 
ing the switching charges, the increase in some cases being as high ate 
$3.50 per car. It further appears that while the matter was pending before 
the Commission, and before any hearing had been had therein, the Trans- 
fer Company arbitrarily put the new tariff into effect and began collecting 
charges thereunder. That this arbitrary action was taken has been ad- 
mitted, as I understand it, by Mr. Dooley, the Superintendent of the Trans- 
fer Company. 

You desire to know whether the Transfer Company has not been guilty 
of a clear violation of Sections 2, 3 and 5 of Chapter 176, G. L. 1905. I 
have the honor to advise you that the action of the Transfer Company tin 
arbitrarily making effective the new tariff, thereby greatly increasing 
charges, without procuring the consent of the Railroad and Warehouse 
Commission, after proper application and hearing, was a gross violation of 
the law, which, in my opinion, makes the company liable to th^e penalty 
imposed by Section 7 of the 1905 act, to-wit. — "$100 for each and every day 
such violation shall continue." This penalty may be recovered in a civil. 
action in the name of the State of Minnesota. 

Trusting that the foregoing may meet with your approval, I beg to 
remain, Yours truly, 

R. A. STONE, Assistant Attorney General. 



I36 TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

Whether the Commission can compel the C, M. & St P. Ry. Co. to 
switch cars of freight from the Burlington line at Hastings for final d>. 
livery on its own terminals. 

OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL. 

St. Paul, January 19, 1907. 
Hon. C. F. Staples, Railroad & Warehouse Commission, City. 

Dear Sir: Under date of the 4th inst. you submitted to the Attorney 
General, for his opinion thereon, two questions, the first of which is sub- 
stantially as follows: 

"May the Commission make an order requiring the Chicago, Mil- 
waukee & St. Paul Ry. Co. to switch cars of freight from the Chicago, 
Burlington & Quincy line or terminals in the city of Hastings, Minne- 
sota, to and over its own terminals for final delivery thereon?" 
Your second question will be reserved for further consideration. The 
matter having been referred to me, I beg to submit, in answer to the ques- 
tion above quoted, the following: 

Paragraph F. of Section 3, Chapter 91, General Laws, 1895, was in part 
as follows: 

"Nothing herein contained shall be construed as requiring any rail- 
road company to send its cars over the line of railroad of another 
company when its own line of railroad runs to and reaches the point 
of destination or the point of connection with another railroad on which 
such point of destination is located, or to use its track or terminal facil- 
ities at terminal points for the handling of cars or traffic of another or 
competing company." 

This law was expressly repealed by the Code, and the provision above 
quoted was not continued either in form or substance. The only provision 
of the Revised Laws, 1905, having any direct bearing upon the question, 
is Section 2019, relating to transfer facilities. That section reads as fol- 
lows: 

"Section 2019. All such railroad companies, at all points of con- 
nection, intersection, or crossing at grade of different railroads, where 
it is practicable, shall provide reasonable, ample, and equal facilities, by 
track connection, passenger platforms, and otherwise, for transferring 
cars, passengers and property between their respective roads without 
unreasonable delay. They shall not discriminate in their rates or 
charges between such connecting lines or on freight coming over them; 
but no such company shall be required to furnish to another railroad 
company its tracks, equipment, or terminal facilities, without reason- 
able compensation." 

The concluding sentence of this section, to the effect that no railroad 
company shall be required to furnish terminal facilities to another company 
without reasonable compensation necessarily implies that such facilities 
must be furnished for a reasonable compensation. If the law is of any 
effect whatever, it permits of no other construction. 

It is probable, of course, that no such order could be made urh«re 
the result thereof would, if enforced, be confiscation. I realize that the 



RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. 1 37 

foregoing is contrary to the practice and rulings of your Commission in the 
past, but inasmuch as the Code makes the change to which your attention 
is above directed, I think it evident that the legislature intended that the 
rule as to furnishing transfer facilities should be changed, so that the 
terminals of one company, in proper cases, niight be subjected to the use 
of traffic arriving over the lines of another company. 

Yours very truly, 

R. A. STONE, 
Assistant Attorney General. 

As to power of the Commission to order in track connections between 
railways without proof of necessity for same. 

OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL. 

St. Paul, Minn., Feb. 1st, 1907. 
Railroad and Warehouse Commission, Building. 

Gentlemen: In your favor of the 29th inst. you ask whether the pro- 
visions of Section 2019 of the Revised Laws of 1905 should not be con- 
strued as amendatory. I beg to advise you that notwithstanding the change 
in the law from the language it contained at the time of the so-called 
"Jacobson" case, I am, nevertheless, of the opinion that there should be 
seme showing made of the necessity for track connections before your 
board would be justified in making order that they be put in. 

Yours truly, 

E. T. YOUNG, 
Attorney General. 

Power of Commission to authorize two different rates on same com- 
modity between the same stations. 

OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL. 

St. Paul, Minn., April 16, 1907. 
Railroad and Warehouse Commission, Capitol. 

Gentlemen: I have your favor of the 4th inst. relating to the rate on 
lime from Mankato to Austin. You state that the rate now is seven cents 
per cwt., in car lots with a minimum of 24,000 lbs., and that Mr. Pay, who 
is manufacturing lime at Mankato and cement at Austin has asked the 
Chicago Great Western Railway Company to make a rate on lime from 
Mankato to Austin of five cents with a minimum of 50,000 lbs. 

You state that the railway company is willing to put this rate in if 
the Commission will consent thereto. You further state that, in the opinion 
of the Commission, it has not the power to make two different rates on the 
same article between the same stations. 

I beg to advise you that I am of the opinion that the Commission is 
right in its construction of the statute, and that as the law is now worded, 
you could not legally consent to the rate demanded. 

Yours truly, 
E. T. YOUNG, Attorney General. 



I38 TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

As to whether the elevator of James Quirk Milling Co. at Waterville, 
is a public elevator under statute. 

OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL. 

St. Paul, Minn., April 16th, 1907. 
Hon. Charles F. Staples, Railroad and Warehouse Commission. 

Dear Sir: The Attorney General has referred to me your inquiry 
relative to the elevator owned by the James Quirk Milling Company at 
Waterville, Minnesota. 

The elevator in question is situated on the right of way of a railroad. 
Concerning it the proprietors say "The elevator * * * is one that 
we use in connection with our mill at Waterville. We store no wheat there. 
We ship no wheat from there. We simply use it in connection with our 
own business and (of) manufacturing flour." I assume from the foregoing 
that the elevator is a part of the Quirk Company's mill property at Water- 
ville; that it is used only as a store house for the grain purchased for use 
in the mill, and that no grain is sold or shipped therefrom. It is upon this 
understanding of the facts that I answer your question as to whether the 
elevator is a public warehouse and as such required to be licensed, anfcl 
otherwise subject to the jurisdiction of the Commission. 

You have directed our attention to sections 2084, 2085, 2100, 2091, 2087, 
Revised Laws 1905. Section 2084 is as follows: 

"All elevators and warehouses in which grain is received, stored, 
shipped or handled, situated on the right of way of any railroad com- 
pany, or adjacent thereto to be used in connection with its line of rail- 
way at any station or siding other than Minneapolis, St. Paul and Du- 
luth, shall be public warehouses, known as local warehouses, and shall 
be under the supervision and subject to the inspection of the Com- 
mission." 

This section, literally construed, and without reference to other sections 
in pari materia, might be held to include, as you suggest, any warehouse 
situated on a railroad right of way. Such, however, was not the intention, 
as is obvious from an inspection of the other sections above enumerated, 
all bearing upon the same subject. 

Section 2084 defines "public warehouses." A distinction is thereby 
drawn between the public and the private warehouses, the former being 
required to take out a license and being otherwise subject to the jurisdic- 
tion of the Railroad and Warehouse Commission. Section 2085 requires "all 
such elevators" that is, all public warehouses, to be licensed. Section 2100 
requires the Commission to exercise general supervision over the "man- 
agement of public warehouses." Examination of the other sections referred 
to shows the presence of similar phraseology, all indicating that the legis- 
lature had in mind only public warehouses as defined in Section 2084. 

If the Quirk Elevator at Waterville is not a private warehouse, the 
distinction between public and private warehouses instead of being fol- 
lowed by the legislature, has been abolished. If the elevator now under 
consideration is not purely a private warehouse, then there is no such 
thing known in the milling and grain business of the state. In my judg- 



RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. I39 

merit, when all of the statutes bearing upon the subject are considered, we 
are forced irresistibly to the conclusion that elevators of this kind need not 
be licensed, and are not subject to the jurisdiction of the Commission. 

Trusting that the foregoing may have the honor of your approval, I 
beg to remain, 

Yours very truly, 

R. A. STONE, 
Assistant Attorney General. 



As to the legality of a certain switching charge imposed by the Minne- 
sota Transfer Ry. Co. 

OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL. 

St. Paul, Minn., May 8th, 1907. 
Hon. Ira B. Mills, Chairman Railroad and Warehouse Commission. 

Dear Sir: Under recent date you transmitted to the Attorney General 
a communication setting forth the following facts, to-wit: 

"Mr. F. H. Lewis, a dealer in hardwood lumber, had shipped from 
a point outside of the state to himself, billed to Minnesota Transfer, 
a carload of lumber. When it arrived at the Transfer he was tele- 
phoned by the Transfer Company what disposition to maKe of the 
car. He answered telling the Transfer people to deliver it, or turn 
it over to Anderson & Company, and they asked him to confirm this 
by letter, which he immediately did. At this time he had paid the 
freight charges upon this car to Minnesota Transfer." 

"Anderson & Company have an industry on the tracks of Minne- 
sota Transfer, and as this shipment came in over the "Soo" Road it 
was entitled to delivery to this industry free of charge." 

"Instead of taking the car to the Anderson track on the telephone 
order, the company took the car to the team track. On receiving the 
letter they transferred the car to the Anderson track and charged $5.55 
for switching." 
On these facts you ask an answer to the following questions: 

"1st. The company having asked over the 'phone what disposi- 
tion should be made of the car. and having received an answer, and a 
letter immediately following, was that not sufficient to require them to 
make the delivery to Anderson & Company free of charge?" 

"2nd. This shipment having originated outside of the state, has 
this Commission any jurisdiction over the matter even if the freight 
was paid to destination before disposition was given?" 
The matter having been referred to me, I beg to submit the following: 
Ii my opinion, the action of the Trarfsfer Company in placing the car on 
the team track, after the telephone order, given at their own express solici- 
tation, to place the car on the Anderson track, and making a charge of $5.55 
for the switching, was entirely unwarranted. If tte company has a valid 
rule requiring directions of this kind to be given in writing, they waived 
that rule in this instance by asking for telephone instructions. 



I40 TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

I am not unmindful of the difficulty inherent in your second question. 
In many cases it is very hard to determine the exact point when an inter- 
state shipment loses its its interstate character and becomes subject to state 
regulation. In this case it seems to me that the interstate shipment ceased 
when the car was first placed upon the tracks of the Transfer Company, 
subject to the direction of the consignee. The subsequent movement either 
to the team track or the Anderson track, or both, was an independent car- 
riage of a purely local character in the nature of a reshipment. In my 
judgment, that movement was subject to the regulation and control of 
your Commission. 

Trusting that the foregoing may have the honor of your approval, I 
am, Yours very truly, 

R. A. STONE, 
Assistant Attorney General. 



Status of Potato Warehouses in connection with Section 8006, R. L. 
1905, relating to sidetracks. 

OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL. 

St. Paul, May 15, 1907. 
Hon. C. F. Staples, Railroad and Warehouse Commission. 

Dear Sir: There has been referred to me your inquiry of even date 
asking whether Sec. 2006, Revised Laws, 1905, can be construed so as to 
impose upon railroad companies the duty of constructing and operating 
sidetracks, as therein provided, for the benefit of a Potato Warehouse, 
which is now located 25 feet from the house track upon the premises ad- 
joining the right of way. 

Section 2006 is for the benefit only of the owner or owners of "any 
grain warehouse or mill of not less than 5,000 bushel capacity," or of a 
"mill, quarry, brick or lime kiln, or manufactory." This is a complete 
enumeration of the beneficiaries of the law, and, by a familiar rule of stat- 
utory construction, excludes from its operation all industries not mentioned. 
Potato warehouses, not being included in the enumeration, are therefore 
beyond the scope of the lft^w and not entitled as of right to sidetrack facil- 
ities. 

Trusting that the foregoing may be honored by your approval, I am, 

Yours very truly, 

R. A. STONE, 
Assistant Attorney General. 



RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. 141 

Interstate shipments held to retain their interstate character until after 
actual delivery to consignee. 

OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL. 

St. Paul, May 16, 1907. 
Hon. C. F. Staples, Railroad and Warehouse Commission. 

Dear Sir: Sometime since there was referred to me your communi- 
cation submitting certain questions, among which was one substantially as 
follows: Can freight shipped into the City of Hastings over the Burling- 
ton road from points without the state, and placed in the Burlington 
yards, be construed to be state traffic after the consignee has paid the 
freight thereon, in the event that the consignee desires either (1) to have 
the freight switched across the river into the city proper, or (2) re-shipped 
to another point in the State of Minnesota. In my opinion, such shipments 
retain their interstate character and therefore are not subject to the regu- 
lation of your Commission until after actual delivery to the consignee. 
The payment of the freight is but an incident to be considered in deter- 
mining whether such delivery has been made. It' is in no event controlling. 
No other conclusion can be arrived at in view of the case of McNeil vs. 
Southern Railway Company, 202 U. S. 543, 50 L. Ed' 1142. This act in- 
volved the right of the Corporation Commission of North Carolina to direct 
the railroad company to deliver cars containing interstate freight upon 
the private siding of a shipper instead of on the team track where the com- 
pany insisted upon placing such cars in this particular case. No inde- 
pendent local belt or transfer line was concerned. The railroad affected 
was unquestionably engaged in interstate commerce so as to be directly 
subject to the control of the Interstate Commerce Commission. The order 
of the Corporation Commission directing delivery to be made at the pri- 
vate siding was held to be invalid as an attempted regulation of interstate 
commerce. In order to reach this decision, the court necessarily^ concluded 
that the interstate character of the shipment did not terminate upon the 
arrival of the car in the yards of the Southern Railway Company at the 
point of destination, but that it continued until actual delivery to the con- 
signee. 

In the Hastings case, I believe that interstate shipments will retain 
their character as such until actual delivery to the consignee, and that trans- 
portation from the Burlington yards across the river to the yard of the 
Milwaukee Company or to private tracks would be held to be a part of the 
interstate movement. 

In the second branch of your question which involves a re-shipment 
by the original consignee, a different conclusion must be reached. In this 
case the payment of the freight by the consignee with directions to re-ship 
the car to another point in the state accompanied by a re-billing, amounts 
to a delivery thereof to him. The interstate movement has terminated and 
a new and independent movement entirely local to the State of Minnesota 
has commenced. This latter movement is subject to the usual control of 
your Commission. 

Trusting that the foregoing may be honored by your approval, I beg 
to remain, Yours very truly, 

R. A. STONE, 
Assistant Attorney General.

Necessity for uniform adoption by all Express Companies of Express 
classifications. 

OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL. 

St. Paul, Minn., May 17th, 1907. 
Railroad and Warehouse Commission, Capitol. 

Gentlemen: Your communication of the first inst., relative to certain 
changes in the classification used by the Express Companies, has been 
referred to me. 

Without repeating either the facts stated by you or the question sub- 
mitted thereon, I have the honor to advise you that, in order that the classi- 
fication may be uniform as to all companies as required by law, any change 
therein should be adopted and made effective by all the Express Companies 
doing business in the state. To permit certain changes, such as those 
you mentioned, to be made by some of the companies only, would bring 
about a decided lack of uniformity in the classification. This is a result 
which should not be permitted. 

Trusting that the foregoing may be favored by your approval, I beg 
to remain, 

Yours very truly, 

R. A. STONE, 
Assistant Attorney General. 



Liability of Country Grain Warehousemen in making deliveries on 
warehouse receipts. 

OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL. 

St. Paul, Minn., June 4th, 1907. 
Hon. Ira B. Mills, Chairman Railroad and Warehouse Commission, Capi- 
tol, City. 

Dear Sir: I have your favor of the 1st inst., relative to the form of 
warehouse receipts to be issued by country warehouses as provided by the 
law of 1907. In our conversation about the matter you stated that certain 
warehousemen were objecting to the form of ticket for the reason that by 
its terms it seemed to bind them to deliver the grain described therein at 
any terminal point, upon the same line of railway within the state, that 
might be designated by the owner, where state inspection and weighing 
were in force, without providing for the payment of freight thereon from 
the point of receipt to the point of possible delivery. 

In this connection, my attention has been called to Section 2090, Re- 
vised Laws 1905, which covers the point in controversy. That section pro- 
vides the procedure in a case where the owner of a ticket, received from 
a. country warehouse, desires to have the grain therein described delivered 
at a terminal point. He must surrender the original ticket received from 
the warehouseman and receive from him a new certificate specifying the 
kind of grain, the grade, and the net quantity, exclusive of dockage, to 
which he is entitled. It further provides that such grain shall be sub- 



RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. I43 

ject to freight and other lawful charges accruing up to the time 
of delivery at the terminal point. This section of the Revised Laws 
is not repealed by the enactment of 1907, which prescribes the form of ticket, 
and the section therefore continues in force and clearly defines the rights 
of the parties in cases where delivery at a terminal point is demanded. In 
view of this section it is not necessary that the ticket should state in ex- 
press terms that the owner of the wheat must pay the freight thereon. The 
law of the state is always a part of every contract, and this law fixes the 
duty upon the owner to pay such freight and he therefore must do so. 

Yours truly, 
E. T. YOUNG, Attorney General. 



As to jurisdiction under Section 1, Chapter 333, G. L. 1007, relating to 
Fences and Cattle Guards. 

OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL. 

St. Paul, June 18th, 1907. 
Thomas Yapp, Esq., Assistant Secretary, Railroad and Warehouse Com- 
mission. • 

Dear Sir:. In your favor of the 15th inst. you ask whether the pro- 
visions of Section 1 of Chapter 333 of the General Laws, 1907, are to be 
enforced by the Railroad and Warehouse Commission. 

I beg to advise that, in my opinion, the law referred to is to be admin- 
istered exclusively by those in charge of public highways. 

Yours truly, 
E. T. YOUNG, Attorney General. 



As to jurisdiction of Commission in connection with over -head 
crossings, 

OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL. 

St. Paul, Minn., July 18th, 1907. 
Hon. Ira B. Mills, Railroad and Warehouse Commission, Capitol. 

My Dear Sir: You forward to this office this morning a letter from 
Hon. Daniel Shell of Worthington, under date of July 12th, in which he 
states, in effect, that between the Villages of Worthington and Org, the 
Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha Railway Company maintain a 
dangerous crossing, in that when one has entered the same it is practically 
impossible to get out of the way of trains, and he suggests that it is within 
the purview of the powers of the Railroad and Warehouse Commission of 
the State of Minnesota to take testimony upon the matter and, if so advised, 
order the railroad company to construct an over-head crossing at this 
place, and you ask whether, in the opinion of this office, the Railroad and 
Warehouse Commission of this state has such power. 



144 TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

In reply thereto, I beg to advise that, in my opinion, your inquiry 
must be answered in the negative. The jurisdiction of the Railroad and 
Warehouse Commission does not extend to a matter of this nature. Under 
the statute, its source of power, the Railroad and Warehouse Commission 
may, in a proper case, direct a railway company to make such reasonable 
changes in the mode of operating its roads, its stations,- and conducting 
its business as will result in the convenience and welfare of the public; that 
ir the Railroad and Warehouse Commission may direct the railway com- 
pany to do certain things for the welfare and convenience of the public 
in matters which the railway company control. The question of con- 
structing a bridge as part of a public highway over the tracks of a railway 
company is not such a matter. The railway company as such has no con- 
trol thereover, but it is a highway matter and one under the control of 
the respective highway authorities of the state. I think the difference is 
at once apparent. 

However, in this connection, permit me to call your attention to the 
case of the State, ex rel. vs. St. P., M. & M. Ry. Co., reported in 98 Minn, 
at page 380, and the doctrine of which was lately affirmed by the Supreme 
Court in the case not yet reported. Quoting from the syllabus of that case, 
our court has said: 

"A railway company receives its charter and franchise subject to 
the implied right of the state to establish and open such streets and 
highways over and across its right of way as public convenience and 
necessity may from time to time require. That right on the part of the 
state attaches by implication of law to the franchise of the railroad 
company and imposes upon it an obligation to construct and maintain, 
at its own expense, suitable crossings at new streets and highways to 
the same extent as required by the rules of the common law at streets 
and highways in existence when the road was constructed. ,, 
This rule, the court says, may apply to over-head crossings, and in 
the absence of any showing to the contrary would seemingly apply to the 
Omaha road as well as to the defendant therein. 

The question of whether it is necessary that such crossing should be 
an over-head crossing, is one to be determined by the facts in each case, 
but such question of necessity being determined in favor of an over-head 
crossing, our courts will, at the instance of the county attorney or any 
attorney employed by the proper highway authorities, compel a railway 
company at its own expense, in a proper case, to construct suitable and 
safe crossing over the tracks of such company. 

I call attention to the foregoing case for the reason that while unques- 
tionably the power of your Commission may not be invoked in such a mat- 
ter, ample power exists along the lines indicated to bring about the desired 
result, assuming that the facts will warrant the same. 

Yours truly, 

GEORGE T. SIMPSON, 
Assistant Attorney General.

Construction of Sections 8038 and 2039, R. L. 1905, relating to aban- 
donment of railways. 

OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL. 

August 19th, 1907. 
Hon. Ira B. Mills, Chairman Railroad and Warehouse Commission. 

Dear Sir: From your communication of the 14th inst. it appears that 
the "Soo" Railroad, in making a revision of their grade find it necessary 
at the station of Wendell in Grant County to move a portion of their line 
to a location between 1,200 and 1,500 feet south of its present position. 
You ask whether or not Sections 2038 and 2039 of the Revised Laws of 
Minnesota, 1905, as amended by Chapter 261 of the General Laws, 1907, 
applies to such a change of road. 

In my opinion, the statute in question does apply to the facts stated. 
A portion of the old line is to be abandoned and closed for traffic. The 
language of Section 2038 is broad enough and was apparently intended to 
cover every case of this kind. The "Soo" Company cannot make the 
change without abandoning and closing for business certain railway track?, 
and therefore is well within the law in question. 

Trusting that the foregoing will have the honor of your approval, I am, 

Yours truly, # 

R. A. STONE, 
Assistant Attorney General. 



As to jurisdiction of the Commission over question of approaches to a 
public warehouse on right of way. 

OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL. 

St. Paul, Minn., Sept. 20, 1907. 
Hon. Ira B. Mills, Railroad and Warehouse Commission. 

Dear Sir: You transmit to this office the correspondence, which is 
•herewith returned, in relation to a local warehouse at Fort Ripley, this 
state, and from which it appears that on the right of way of the Northern 
Pacific Railway Company at that point there has been located for many 
years a local warehouse; that there is a highway traveled, it is claimed, 
for some thirty years, extending along the right of way of the Railway Com- 
pany and up to this warehouse, and that the railway company has lately 
obstructed and abolished such highway. Application is made to the Rail- 
road and Warehouse Commission on behalf of persons who formerly used 
the same, in effect asking the Commission to direct such railway company 
to remove such obstruction, and you ask for the opinion of this office 
thereon. 

In reply thereto, I beg to advise that, in my opinion, the same is not 
within the jurisdiction of the Railroad and Warehouse Commission, but is 
a matter wholly within the jurisdiction of the local road authorities. While 
such Commission has jurisdiction of the operation of local warehouses, I

RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. I^J 

Constitutionality of Chapter 253, G. L. 1907, relating to the hours of 
service of railroad employes. 

OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL. 

St. Paul, Sept. 23rd, 1907. 
Hon. Ira B. Mills, Chairman Railroad and Warehouse Commission, St. Paul, 

Minn. 

Dear Sir: There has been referred to me your inquiry of recent date 
as to whether Chapter 253, General Laws 1907, entitled "An act to safe- 
guard the traveling public and employes upon railroads, by limiting the 
hcurs of service of employes thereon," is constitutional. It appears that 
Mr. C. W. Bunn, general counsel of the, Northern Pacific Railway Company, 
takes the position that this law is invalid for the reason that the subject 
was regulated by Congress at its last session. 

It will be conceded that, in the absence of any regulation by Congress, 
the act in question would be valid. Until such regulation by Congress, 
"it is clearly within the competency of the states to provide against acci- 
dents on trains whilst within their limits. * * * It is not only within 
the power of the states, but it is among their plain duties, to make pro* 
vision against accidents likely to follow any such business, so that the dan- 
gers attending it may be guarded against so far as practicable." 

Nashville, Chicago & St. L. R. R. Co. vs. Alabama, 128 U. S. 96 (32 
L. Ed 352). 

Smith vs. Alabama, 124 U. S. 465 (31 L. Ed. 508). 

The question then is, whether Congress has regulated the subject mat- 
ter in such a way as to exclude or render inoperative state regulation. In 
my opinion, it has not. 

The act to which Mr. Bunn refers, and concerning which he makes the 
claim that Congress gave the railway companies a year's time to prepare 
for compliance therewith, does not take effect until January 1st, 1908. No 
provision thereof provides that the railroad companies shall have the inter- 
vening time to prepare for compliance therewith. The entire effect of the 
law is postponed and it has no force for any purpose until January Lst 
next. Until that date it imposes no liability or obligation upon the railroad 
companies, neither does it relieve them from such state regulations as are 
effective. To hold that it does relieve from state regulation is to say that 
although Congress has expressly said that the law shall have no effect 
until January 1st, it may, nevertheless, have a very substantial effect be- 
fore that time. This conclusion, to my mind, is entirely unwarrantable. 

If the claim advanced by Mr. Bunn is tenable, it would be equally so 
if the act of Congress did not take effect for five years. If the concluding 
section of the law provided that it should not take effect or be in force 
until January 1st, 1913, it could hardly be said that it was the intention to 
give the railroad companies that period of time within which to prepare to 
comply with the law. Neither could it be said that during that time they 
would be immune from state regulation in the premises. I do not see any 
difference in principle in the situation now presented. 



I48 TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

You further inquire whether the Commission has any authority to pro- 
ceed under the statute in question, in the absence of a complaint as provided 
for by section two of the act. Unquestionably the Commission may pro- 
ceed to investigate an alleged violation of the act and to institute a prosecu- 
tion thereof if facts were found to warrant it, without the filing of a com- 
plaint. 

Trusting that the foregoing will be favored with your approval. 

Yours very truly, 

R. A. STONE, 
Assistant Attorney General. 



As to legality of practice by country grain warehousemen to exact 
dockage on grain purchased. 

OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL. 

St. Paul, Minn., October 7th, 1907. 
Railroad and Warehouse Commission, Capitol. 

Gentlemen: I have for acknowledgement your favor of the 28th ult., 
in which you ask for the opinion of this office as to whether it is unlawful 
for elevators, other than terminal elevators, to deduct "dockage" on grain 
purchased by them. 

In answer thereto I would say that I know of no provision of law which 
prohibits such elevators from agreeing with a seller of grain, where the con- 
dition of the grain is such as to warrant it, on a specified dockage. No 
other measure than the standard bushel may be used, but the amount of 
dockage in any given case is a matter of negotiation between the seller 
and the purchaser, to be agreed upon by them in view of the condition of 
the grain offered for sale. 

Section 2068, Revised Laws 1905, provides for the inspection at ter- 
minal warehouses by state inspector of grain received or shipped in car- 
load or boat-load lots, and the determination by him of the amount of 
lockage which any particular lot of grain shall be subject to. His decision 
is conclusive unless changed on re-inspection or appeal. 

Yours truly, 
E. T. YOUNG, Attorney General. 



As to power of supervision by the Railroad Commission over suburban 
electric railways. 

OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL. 

St. Paul, Oct. 31st, 1907. 
Hon. Ira B. Mills, Chairman Railroad and Warehouse Commission. 

Dear Sir: In your favor of the 29th inst. you enclose copy of a letter 
from Mr. E. R. Haseltine, relating to control of electric suburban railways, 
in view of the decision rendered by the Supreme Court on May 17th last, 



RAILROAD AND WAREHOUSE COMMISSION. I49 

and you ask my opinion as to whether your Commission has the power of 
supervision over the electric suburban roads referred to. 

The decision of the Supreme Court referred to overturned what might 
be regarded as the popular conception of the status of suburban \ailways 
when operated in connection with street railways. The Supreme Court 
there held, in speaking of the Minneapolis & St. Paul Suburban Railway 
Company, that although the articles declared it to be incorporated under 
Title 2 of Chapter 34, of the General Statutes of 1894, it was in fact in- 
corporated under Title 1 of said Chapter, and endowed with the right of 
eminent domain and that its railways were common carriers of passengers 
under the terms of Section 1990 of the Revised Laws of 1905. The .court 
further held that the lines of this company were no less emptoyed as com- 
mon carriers because they did not carry freight. 

Under the general laws of the state your Commission is given "general 
supervision over railroads * * * doing business as common carriers." 
I see no escape from the conclusion under the decision referred to, that 
the Minneapolis & St. Paul Suburban Railway Company is under your 
supervision, the same as other common carriers in the state. 

Yours truly, 
E. T. YOUNG, Attorney General. 

Right of railway companies to collect a penalty for failure to purchase 
passenger tickets. 

OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL. 

St. Paul, Minn., November 13th, 1907. 
Railroad and Warehouse Commission, State Capitol. 

Gentlemen: In your favor of November 2nd you ask whether under 
the two-cent fare law of this state, a railway company has the right to adopt 
any regulation which will require passengers who board a train without 
tickets, to pay any greater sum than the regular two cents per mile. In 
this connection you mention a proposed regulation under which ten cents 
extra is to be charged such passengers, such sum to be restored on the pres- 
entation of a coupon or receipt therefor, to the agent of the company at 
any station. 

I beg to advise you that, in my opinion the railroad companies have the 
same right to adopt reasonable regulations to protect their business as 
they had before, provided the extra sum charged to persons not having 
tickets is not strictly a part of the fare. It is of the highest importance to 
the public that railroad companies should receive full compensation from 
all passengers, as well as from all persons who ship freight over their lines, 
and any regulation which will enable the companies to protect themselves 
against loss in the jevenue properly chargeable to the passenger service, 
should be upheld and not discouraged. I think the arrangement suggested 
in your letter would be entirely reasonable. Furthermore, I think that your 
Commission would have authority to approve any reasonable regulation 
adopted for the purpose of compelling passengers to purchase tickets. 

Yours truly, 
E. T. YOUNG, Attorney General

HISTORY. 

1. Name of common carrier making this report? The Minneapolis & St. Louis Railroad 
Company. 

2. Date of organization? November 2, 1891. 

3. Under laws of what government, state or territory organized? If more than one, 
name all; give reference to each statute and all amendments thereof. Under laws of Min- 
nesota and Iowa. 

EXPLANATORY REMARKS. 

The original Minneapolis & St. Louis Railway Company was a Minnesota corporation, 
created March 3, 1853, by chapter 66, special laws 1853, by the name of the Minnesota 
Western Railroad Company. By authority of chapter 57, special laws 1870, it changed its 
name to the Minneapolis & St. Louis Railway Company, such action being taken by a reso- 
lution of the board of directors adopted May 26, 1870. The Minneapolis & Duluth Railroad 
Company was organized by certain special stockholders of the Minneapolis & St. Louis Rail- 
way Company, on April 24, 1871, by authority contained in its original charter, and amend- 
ments thereto. 

The Minnesota & Iowa Southern Railroad Company was an Iowa corporation, created 
under the general laws of Iowa, in 1878. The Fort Dodge & Fort Ridgley Railroad Company 
was an Iowa corporation, incorporated under the general laws of Iowa on July 24, 1876. On 
April 20, 1881, the Minneapolis & St. Louis Railway Company, the Minneapolis & Duluth 
Railroad Company, the Minnesota & Iowa Southern, and the Fort Dodge & Fort Ridgley 
Companies were consolidated into one company, by the name of the Minneapolis & St. Louis 
Railway Company, a railroad corporation of Minnesota and Iowa. On June 25, 1888, the 
Minneapolis & St. Louis Railway Company went into the hands of a receiver. Its property 
was sold under decree of foreclosure on October 11, 1894, and reorganized under the name 
of the Minneapolis & St. Louis Railroad Company on Novmeber 2, 1894. In order to pre- 
serve the corporate rights in the several states, that portion of the property which lies in 
the state of Iowa was conveyed to a committee who, on January 18, 1895, organized a cor- 
poration known as the Minneapolis & St. Louis Railroad and Telegraph Company of Iowa, 
which was formally consolidated with the Minneapolis & St. Louis Railroad Company on the 
first day of February, 1895, under the present corporate name of the Minneapolis & St. 
Louis Railroad Company. The present reorganization is under the general laws of the States 
of Minnesota and Iowa. Under such reorganization all the charter rights contained in the 
original special act of the legislature of Minnesota, under which the original company was 
created, are retained in the new corporation. 

The following is a reference to the original and special act of incorporation, and the 
amendments thereto: 

Minnesota Western Railroad Company, incorporated by chapter 66, special laws 1853, 
approved March 3, 1853. 

Amended chapter 65, special laws 1853, approved February 26, 1855. 

Amended chapter 117, special laws 1869, approved March 5, 1869. 

Amended chapter 57, special laws 1870, approved February 4, 1870. (This amendment 
authorizes change of name by resolution, to take effect after public notice of such change 
has been given tor one month in any daily paper published in Minneapolis.) 

Resolution changing name adopted by board of directors May 26, 1870. 

Charter amended chapter 71, special laws 1871, approved February 25, 1871. 

Amended chapter 96, special laws 1872, approved February 23, 1872. 

Amended chapter 124, special laws 1872, approved February 20, 1872. 

Amended chapter 72, special laws 1878, approved March 9, 1878. 

Amended chapter 34, special laws 1877, approved February 24, 1877. 

Amended chapter 80, special laws 1878, approved March 11, 1878. 

Amended chapter 185, special laws 1879, approved March 4, 1879. 

Amended chapter 118, special laws 1861, approved February 4, 1861. 

Amended chapter 113, special laws 1881, approved March 2, 1881.

EXPLANATORY REMARKS. 

During the year the remaining forty-seven shares of capital stock were issued. There 
was no cash received for this, as the understanding is that the $100,000 of capital stock is 
to be paid in full and the balance of the money invested is realized on the bonds 
For this reason the amount given as realized from 'he sale of the bonds is given as $4,700 
less than last year, and the amount stated as realized from the capital stock is $4,700 more.
