REPORT

OF THE PROCEEDINGS OF THE BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS

FOR THE YEAR 1889.

OFFICE STATE BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS,

SAN FRANCISCO, January 21, 1889.

}

JAMES FINLAYSON vs. SAN FRANCISCO AND NORTH

PACIFIC RAILROAD COMPANY.

At a regular meeting of the Board on above date, complaint of James Finlayson vs. San Francisco and North Pacific Railroad Company was read. The Secretary was directed to notify the San Francisco and North Pacific Railroad Company to be present on January 29, 1889, to show cause why rates had been raised.

COMPLAINT.

SAN FRANCISCO, January 17, 1889. Mr. V. W. GASKILL, Secretary Railroad Commissioners:

DEAR SIR: I would like to draw the attention of the Board to what appears to my mind to be an act of injustice to the shippers of brandy by the San Francisco and North Pacific Railroad Company (the Donahue line). Within the last few months the carload (of ten tons) rate from Healdsburg to San Francisco has been raised from $33 to $46 per car. Is there not a clause in the new Constitution of California prohibiting railroad companies from raising their rates after having once lowered them. The highest rate that I have paid in the past five years has been $35 per car. I am respectfully yours,

JAMES FINLAYSON,

318 Front Street, San Francisco. On March 15, 1889, a regular meeting of the Board was held, at which meeting the San Francisco and North Pacific Railroad Company appeared in answer to complaint of James Finlayson and filed the comparative statements which follow. These comparative statements showing a reduction of 88 cents per ton since the western classification took effect on July 23, 1888, and being a reduction of nearly 20 per cent on former rates, the complaint of James Finlayson was dismissed.
