ACTION 18 RESCINDED
NO ENDORSEMENT GIVEN CHANGE
IN RATE COMMITTEE.
At Meeting of Shippers and Railroad
Representatives, Suggestion of Plac-
ing El Parfj in New Freight Com-
mittee Does Not Meet With Ap-
Yesterday afternoon by unanimous
vote the Chamber of Commerce direc-
tors rescinded the action taken Tues-
day night In iudorsing the change pro-
posed by the railroads of taking El
Paso out Qf the Southwestern tariff
commluee and placing it in a new
committee which would have New
Mexico, El Paso and probahly Arizo-
na under its Jurisdiction.
The meeting was attended by about
a dozen leading shippers of this city,
the Chamber of Commerce directors,
and A. N. Brown and W. R. Brown for
tue railroads. At the beginning of the
meeting J. M, Cannon opened discus-
sion on the subject by offering a reso-
lution to rescind the previous action
taken. After this there was a gen-
eral debate on the question, A. N.
Brown for the Southwestern and W. R.
Brown for the Santa Pe. explaining
the proposed change in full. There
was «~ definite assurance that the pro-
posed change might not eventually re-
act to the detriment of El Paso and
the shippers spoke against the advisa-
bility of taking El Paso out of a com-
paratively moderate rate territory and
placing It in territory with a much
The upshot of the eatire movement
is that the Chamber of Commerce
takes no hand whatever in lhe mai-

the number of sixty-eight, signed a

protest against the change, which will
be forwarded to the representative of
every road entering the city.
Among the signers of the protest
are included a large percentage of the
heavy shippers of the city.
In the course of his argument A. N.
Brown said that it was probable that
the headquarters of the proposed new
committee would be in Kansas City.
The committee, he said, would be ei-
ther independent or a sub of the Trans
Mississippi, in which latter event the
committee's headquarters were not
likely to be in the territory for which
iates would he published. He laid
stress on the statement that the new-
committee was not to change rates,
but to simply publish them, and to
make occasional corrections of irreg-
ularities, should it be found necessary.
He also said that Ei Paso would have
a separate tariff, which would not be
affected by New Mexico rates. The
change, he said, would be merely in
the interest of stability of rates and
of the publication of all tariffs.
W. R. Brown for the Santa Fe pre-
ceded A. N. Brown and stated among
other things that the prime object in
forming the new committee would be
to have a source of information for all
roads and shippers, and that when the
matter was first discussed, with the
view of placing New Mexico upon a
better basis in the matter of the un-
derstanding of all the rates which
were being published by ail the roads,
it was thought well to include El Paso
S. J. Frendenthal made the princi-
pal talk on the part of the shippers,
declaring that El Paso merchants are
fairly well satisfied with the rates
they are getting at present and that
they did not desire to give endorse-
ment to a plan which would place the
city in a committee which had a ter-
ritory with much higher rates than BJI
Paso is getting.
He said that if the new committee
Were formed ,the interests of Denver
and all other Colorado points would
he thrown against El Paso.
A. Blumenthal, C. T. Hockemeyer,
I. A. Shedd. D. M. Payne and others
spoke. At the conclusion of the dis-
cussion, Mr. Cannon asked for a vote
on his motion, which carried unani-
mously. Mr. Cannon then moved ad-
