Sax Fiuscisoo, August 13. The great
speech of Gov. Booth upon the rsilroad
questtor.i bus bixn tho principal topic of
conversation, to-day, And has created a
profound icnaatlon. After reviewing tho
question of tho disiategrttion of party
tlei, the growing tendency to centraliza
tion of power, .and the aggre
gation of Corporate wcilth, tho cor
rupting lnfluncos of tho Credit
Mobllier, he pamed t0 an illustration of
the power of railwajHo monopoliza the
commercial business of t'0 country, and
ruin all competition bv eysteuj uf special
and discriminating rates for ti.n, porta-
tion. w car. touching upon the suct of
the Central Pacific railroad and its iru.r.
ference in political and taercantilu atl'uirs
on tho .Pacific coast, bo euld
that this sUtotnont is uot
eiagerated. 1 appeal to tho eipcrience
of eTery business man of this community
who takei part or teals an interest in pub
lic affairs: Call together a. committee
for the purpose of considering a question
ol public Importance, aud the moment it
reaches upon r&ilroad ground how
many ''ill feol that it is dan
gerous ground, full of pitfalls?
For their personal safety they attempt an
organization tu resist a ra'.lroal demand,
no mutter bo? bold and unscrupulous.
How many will tell you, I should like to
join, but il will injuro rao in my businosi,';
the railroad can tako away my tpeclnl
rate, or glvo it to my neighbor , they
can giro all along tho lino
instructions that none of thier employes
shall deal with mo; they cao ruin mer
chants who will not regard orders. It may
be a question of ruin, of bankruptcy, of
bread to my family, the struggle of his
manhood is earnest and painful, but tho
yoke is upon his neck, the iron
uround his soul, and tho ballot-box ii
stuffed or th returns altered to carry one
subsidy, and another demand follows.
Mon will say I know it is wrong, it is an
outrage, but my prcparty is nil in this
city. Tbey could not effect its ultimato
value, but it is mortgaged, and they can
unsottle prices by their threats, and
1 thould httvo thu tberilt'

that cannot bo inuJo to feel this iron
pressure? But it it is too todious to cap
ture theso sororal interests in detail, thoy
goto congress and demand the possoiilon
of Goat island and still demand it. Thoy
boast that tbey will get it, and
thoy v, ill get it if thoy can
