Celm-mlnd'eil xncij In the nntln l:ve called attention
thus early to tho danger of hysteria developing from tho
tremendous activities manifest throughout tho country
during tho present administration. This Is especially
true In regard to tho railway situation.
What would have been thought ten or twenty years
ago If a Republican In tho federal srnntc had advocated
tho government ownership of railroads? Tho good peo
ple of this country would havo begun putting props under
tho sky for fear It was about to fall and annlhltato tho
Amazement would only liavo been equaled by Indigna
tion. Yet this Is what Senator Kenyon of Iowa has done
and ho based his argument on figures furnished by
Iowa's railroad commissioner. These placo tho value of
tho railroad securities at about $14,000,000,000.
At this prlco paid In three per cent bonds, ho reckons
there would bo a saving of $400,000,000 n year In Interest
charges olono. Added to this would bo tho dividends to
be used possibly to retire the bonds, besides -which there
Is $1,000,000,000 of accumulated surplus.
Other arguments used were the gains through dispens
ing with tho services of a lot of highly paid officials,
and the profits from Increased terminal and right-of-way
land values which tho railroads have persistently capi
talized. Terminals also would be rearranged for tho
common benefit and tho good of tin; service, ,nnd not
held as now as u monopolistic agency for unfair com
, Rates would bo based on cost The principle and
methods of safety would be uniformly applied. Employ
mcnt would come tinder civil service and so on and so
forth, along all tho lines of Idealism which arc always
i used to show tho great advantages of public ownership,
Yet, when all this Is told, there la hardly one Item
lot It all that cannot bo secured through regulation under
private ownership. Tho common uso of terminals, tho
refusal to permit tho capitalization of unearned lncre
jments, tho uro of surplus In betterments or extensions
without Increased capitalization, lower Interest rates
.through greater dependability, all nro coming nnd will
'Come without burdening tho government with the owner
'ship and operation of tho railroads with tho manifold
i dangers ond weaknesses which would follow.
"FARMER" STEEL TRUST.
FOR BETTER ARIZONANS.
It is a fine quality of faith which Editor Dunbar ex
hibits when ho says that "the people of Arizona can!
ALWAYS be relied upon to do right." If the people of
Arizona are entitled to euch an unreserved appraisal for
trustworthiness, tho fact is most certainly reassuring In
view of responsibilities which will bo placed upon them
Wo maintain, however, that It would bo better to
suspend judgment on the Infallibility of Arizonans until
they have been proven by their deeds. The rank and
flic In tho State arc essentially those who made possible
what Urother Dunbar describes as a "history of two rules
of misrule, wherein wasto and Incompetency have run
rampant." This period, then, furnishes proof of an oc-,
caslon when the people of Arizona betrayed the faith
which was reposed in them nnd clearly indicates that
they cannot ALWAYS bo relied upon.
Tho history of Arizona during Its flr6t two years of
statehood will not be pointed to with pride cither by
contemporary citizens or Uiom) who come after. It will
comprise a chapter which, for tho greater part, might
better bo forgotten. It will contain no constructive rec
ords, and little suggestive of Stato growth unless, by
neyatlvo reasoning, tho failures be assessed at some val
uation by reason of their serving as a warning.
Why tho necessity of sowing among the people of
Arizona the seeds of self-satisfaction and smug com
placence? Thus far, they havo permitted themselves to Announcement that tho United States Steel Corpora
