CAUSE OF SHORTAGE
IN FREIGHT CARS.
ATLANTA, Feb. 12.—In discussing
the complaint of the shortage of freight
cars to handle traffic, a well-known
railroad man said today that one of
the principal causes of It was the fail
ure of merchants to promptly unload
car* consigned to them. Pointing to
one little freight yard in the midst of
the city, moving only half a block, he
"Tou see there forty freight cars
standing on those sidetracks, none of
them unloaded. Some of them con
tain coal and other merchandise of
various kinds. Some of those cars
have been right there for more than a
week and no effort has been made by
the merchants to whom the goods-are
consigned to unload them. There are
many cases where they prefer to leave
them and pay the demurrage of 11 per
day as storage. Of course this sort of
thing adds much to the car shortage
which the railroads are trying to rem
edy as rapidly^ as it is possible for
them to do so.”

he should not be compelled to “go over
the country as the principal in an in

mittee is adverse to allowing testimony
to appear in the record before being
censored by a majority of the commit

desired examined, mostly on rebuttal.'

Senator Bailey indignantly replied:
* “Mr. Chairman, that’s a lie. Its. is
infamy to allow any man to stand , here
and make a statement that Is a down

of whole cloth.”
Mr. Cocke insisted that he was doing
only what the committee had invited
him to do. A motion was adopted that
