Railroads and the Public.
The tact that the recent discus
sions, in which the heads of practi
cally every railroad system in the
country took part, were held behind
closed doors, leaves the decisions
arrived at a matter of conjecture to
all except the participants, so that
the declaration of President McCrea,
of the Pennsylvania, that an increase
in freight rates has not been de
termmed on serves to confuse rather
than to reassure, the impression hav
ing been generally gained that the
railroads desire to put into effect an
immediate increase of ten per cent.
The protest on the part of the ship
per and the people at large at the
imposition of such a tax at a time
when the country can afford no ad
ditional burdens in its fight to over
come the effects of the Roosevelt
panic has been so emphatic and
united as to make it improbable that
the railroads can gain the consent
of the Interstate Commerce Commis
sion or, in fact, that they will sub
mit to the commission a proposal to
Should the improbable happen,
however, the railroads, which are
just beginning to recover from the
baiting to which they have been sub
jected by Congress and the State
Legislatures, would display a sing
ular lack of ability to grasp the
patent and essential fact that co
operation, not imposition, is their
The public in the past eighteen
months has shown little disposition
to accept the argument that pro
tection of the railroads is protection
of the public interests. For the
railroads to be the first to refute
that argument by an increase in
rates, when the public is overtaxed
as it is, would be to give the public
present discomfort and the railroads
more than one uncomfortable quar
ter of an hour in the near future.
Yancy Webb, who resides in East
