SPEECH OF GOVERNOR NOYES,
AT ATHENS, OHIO,
SATURDAY, AUGUST, 23rd, 1873.
The political canvass of 1873, in Ohio,
was formally opened at Athens, on the
23rd nit. Speeches were made by Gov,
Morton, of Indiana, and Gov. Noyes, of
this State. The meeting was a largo
one about 5,000 persons being present.
As Gov. Noyes discusses questions of
State as well as of national concern, we
take it for granted that most of our
readers will be interested in his speech
We copy from the Cincinnati Gazette.
the following extracts:
RAILROADS AND THE FARMERS.
There is a wide-spread feeling existing
throuuhout the West and North-West
aniontr the producing masses that rail
ro.'ia corporations, by the consolidation
of capital, by the combinations of man
aginient and the centralization of uu
tliority, are exercising for their own nd
vantage an undue and pernicious infill
ence upon the business interests of the
country. ' This feeling is less prominent
in Ohio than in the great grain growing
States further west, for the reason that
we are rapidly becoming u manufactur
ing State, that we are nearer the great
markets and that we have several com
1 toting lines of railroad leading to the
East. But there is dissatisfaction among
the people of Ohio.
From II. V. Poor's Railroad Manual
for 1873-4, 1 gatRer the following sum
mary of statistics, detailed statements
of four hundred and tweuty-five roads
being given in that work.
leu states mere are-
Miles of railway
In the Uni
Ctisl per mile. .. ..
Nel enr iinuH
"Total number of miles in operation
67,104, of which 6,427 were built last
year. Some made no returns, others re
fuse information. The total earnings
are $11,000,000 more than the receipts
111 the L uited States Ireasury, and the
net earniiigs,$48,00O,0OO more than the
government interest account. 1 he to
tal cost is $900,000,00 1 more timri tlie
national debt, 'lliirty-three thousand
nine hundred and thirty -four miles have
been built since 1863."
This statement is startlincr, nnd indi
cates the power which, by united efforts,
could be exerted in our ' State and na
tion. It is well known that certain grent
railroad combinations have for years
controlled tlie legislation of several
States in all matters affectine railroad
property and the profits" thereof. It
feared that this influence is becoming
iftore and more extended, and more Do-
tent; nnd that, unless speedily checked,
it will tMidanger the permanent welfare
and .prosperity of our whole population.
1 uo not snare 111 tne apprenension; enter
tained by some, that railroads and their
oflicers, or any other , aggregations of
wealth una talent, likely to subvert
or materially endanger the liberties
our people. Injustice and exaction will
be tolerated until tuey rcacn a certain
point, aud then the evil will be swept
away with a relentless purpose and
strong hand. In a country and under
government like ours, the people lire pn
tient of extortion and wrong only until
it Drosseif hard upon them; 1 when once
aroused, they throw off their burdens
wnu iieieriiiiiiaiioii unci vigur. ,

judgment, therefore, the simplest and I
probably the most satisfactory way to
remedy trie evu onnpiaineii 01, wowu
be to have the whole matter disposed of
by Congressional enactment. Mr. Shel-
laoarger 01 ima mate, iniroaucea biich
a measure Into - the last'Congress, and
when the Ohio Legislature was asked to
strengthen his bands by resolutions fa
voring the bill, the Uemocrntie members
put themselves solidly against it.
: liut it raigbi nsppen that congress
would fail in this duty, under Influences
such as have ' been known heretofore
sometimes to affect Congressmen. What
then? In such ose, undoubtedly the
State Legislatures which granted the
charters would have powe' to provide a
remedy. It is certainly a matter within
the province of the people, to elect such
members of the State Legislature and
of Congress as can be trusted to do their
whole duty, and with intelligence
enough to know what hat duty is. If
the people themselr.s era careless and
indifferent as to'tlfe character of those
they elect to represent them, they have
no right to complain.
One cause of dissatisfaction has been
the lack of uniformity in the rates of
transportation. JHany railroads are ac
customed to transport pnssengers and
freight for long distances, between their
termini, at a much, less rate , per mile
than is charged for intermediate points.
The reason is obvious. Between the
distant points there is generally compe
tition, and consequently cutting of the
rates to secure business. The rivalry is
often so great as to leave no margin for
profits, over and above running ex
penses. In order, therefore, to secure
dividends for the stockholders, this loss
has to be made up by excessive charges
for shorter distances, and between
Jioints where there are no competing
inea. This evil ought to be remedied.
But in my judgment, there is a great
er wrong than this. 1 mean the little
Credit Jlobiher organization, inside the
railroad corporations, composed wholly
or for the most part of the officers of
the company, who under the name of
Fast Freight Lines, or t other designa
tion, contract with themselves, realize
enormous profits, and enrich themselves
at the expense of the stockholders or the
public, or both. Such organizations
ought, if possible, be prohibited bylaw,
and the officers of railroad companies
should be prevented from speculating
out of the trust positions they occupy
at the expense of the people who are at
their mercy. '
Amon-sthe ways proposed to secure
cheap transportation, is the opening up
of the great national highways the
rivers and the lakes. These being im
proved and connected where necessary,
bv canals. The improvement of the
Ohio and its tributaries is certainly
worthv of our efforts. Whether a grand
canal, or svstem of water communica
tion, reaching to the ocean, would bring
us in Ohio a return equal to the cost,
has yet to be demonstrated.
There should be no indiscriminate
and wild crusades against railroads.
They should be encouraged and allowed
fair compensation for the capital invest
ed, and the risk encountered. They
have been, and will continue to be, ot
incalculable benefit to onr people. 1 iiey
should simply not be allowed to abuse
their privileges, or to oppress those they
were intended to assist. What would

It is gratifying to know that the vsl-
ue of funning lauds in Ohio has increas
ed more than two hundred per cent, in
the last ten years. The value of farm pro
ducts amoHnts to UOO,000,000 annually.
I see it is estimated that at present one
half the amount raised is exported,
bringing a return to the farmer of about
seven tier cent, on his investment, inclu
sive of rent and subsistence. This, to
be sure, does not equal the exceptional
P'ofits in some other kinds of business,
but on the other hand, it is not subject
to the risks which always attend upon
employments of capital when great re
t irns are sometimes realized. I believe

VALUE OF THE FARMING INTREST.
The present cash value of the farms
of Ohio is set down at 11,054,405, 226;
the value of farm implements at (25,
692,787; the wages paid, including the
value of board, amount to $16,480,767;
theanual value of all farming produc
tions is $198,256,907; orchard products,
5,843,079; produce of market gardens,
$1,289,272; the number of acres improv
ed is 14,469,133; woodland, 6,833.675
acres, unimproved other than woodlai.d,
only 359,712 acres.
It will be seen that almost our entire
State, except the necessary woodbind, is
now under cultivation. As 1 before re
marked, it will, ere be many years, be
necessary to largely increase product
ions in order to supply the home de
mand. The prospect for our farmers is
hopeful and cheering.
MATTERS ABOUT WHICH ALL PARTIES
There are certain matters about which
all parties seem to agree. It is agreed
that there ought to be rigid economy in
the administration of affairs; that tuxes
ought to be reduced as much as the cur
rent expenses of the government, the
interest account, and a reasonable re
duction of the public debt will permit;
and there should be honesty and efficien
cy in every department; that our pub
lic lands should be reserved for actual
