"Unification of Regulation Is Essential."
A Complete, Harmonious, Consistent
and Related System Needed Federal
Incorporation of Railroads by Gener
al Law Favored.
Washltigtou, March 2C Responsibil
ity for the railway development of the
country, for providing necessary trans
portation facilities to care for tho grow
ing business and population of the
country, now rests largely with con
gress and not entirely with the rail
road managers. This was the state,
meut of Judge Robert S. Lovett, chair
man of tho executive committee of the
Union Pacific system, to the Newlunds
Joint congressional committee when
that body resumed Us inquiry into
the subject of railroad regulation this
In making this statement of the
changed conditions of the railroad sit
uation Judge Lovett undoubtedly had
In mind the decision of the supreme
court on the Adumson law, handed
down Inst week, which establishes the
right of the federal government to fix
railroad wages,and to prevent strikes.
This decision is regarded by rallroud
men aud lawyers as marking an epoch
In the development of transportation
In the United States.
"We have our share of responsibil
ity," said Judge Lovett, "but it rests
primarily on congress. When the gov
ernment regulates the rates and the
financial administration of the rail
roads, the borrowing of money and the
Issuance of securities it relieves the
railroad officers of the responsibility' of
providing and developing transporta
tion systems, except within the limits
of the revenue that an be realized from
such rates und under such restrictions.
"For a country such as ours, for u
people situated as we are, to blunder
along with a series of unrelated, incon
sistent, conflicting statutes enacted by
different states without relation to
each other, Instead of providing a com
plete and carefully studied and pre
pared system of regulation for a busi
ness that is so vltirl to the life of the
nation, is worse than folly."
Ho summed up the present problems
and difficulties of the railroads as fol
First. Tho multiplicity of regula
tions by the several states with respect
to the issue of securities, involving de
lays and conflicting state policies gen
erally dangerous and possibly disas

reduce revenues, to 'discriminate in fa

its own borders as against localities
and shippers in other states and to dis

Fourth. The practical legality that
has been accorded conspiracies to tie
up and suspend the operation of the

Lovett, "and that with the rapid in

polled to exercise its power in the

should be a complete, harmonious, con

lieve the best, if not the only practical
plan, is the federal incorporation of
railroads by general law, which will
make incorporation thereunder com
pulsory, thus imposing on all railroad
companies throughout the United
States the same corporate powers and
restrictions with respect to their finan

and obligations to the public and the
government, so that every investor will

the colored man will always be a
citizen of the United States and
whatever affects America affects the
colored man. War on the American
people is war on the colored man.
As citizens of America, we are iu-
separable from those things that go ,
to make up American citizenship;
generally speaking, that which is of j
interest to one citizen is on interest ;
to tho other.
White men and black men were
born and reared together upon this j
continent and there are ties which J
hind them, nolitically. and commer
cially, together in this country that i
can never be broken. We observe by
a perusal of past history that this
country has had no wars in which
the black man did not snare ana uo
his part. In the war of the Revolu
tion he shed the first blood, tie was
less able to shed blood then than
he is today and yet his blood was
the first spilled on the Boston Com
mons. In the war of 1812, lie brave
ly did his part; and in the civil war
he bravely fought upon the fields of
battle and stayed there until the
victory was won.
Then in the Spanish-American War
he won laurels there and rung vic

of this country and swung Old Glory

THE CpLORED MAN AND HIS
FART IN WAR.
Rev. J. P. Robinson, D. D.
. 'This is a question that seems to
be going the rounds morn and more
every day. It Is a matter of peculiar
interest the finding by "the . black
man of bis station in such a time as
this when a foreign nation Is threat
ening the Invasion of our shores,
Let - us admit the colored man has
had his troubles, especially local
troubles, but . having had these
troubles does not divorce him from
his citieznshlp unless be has com
mitted a felony and has been con-
in this country he has been in evi'
denoe and today he cannot escape
the war clouds if he would. In fact i
our colored troops, the Ninth and j
Tenth Cavajry Regiments and 24th j
Infantry Regiments have been in the
Army of the United States for more
than forty years. So it can clearly
be seen that the Negroes belong to
fighting race and every peril of
tills country has found him ready
and on the field of battle mingling:
his blood, and sweat with the dust.
And now when a foreign nation has
put its war dogs barking and howl
ing upon the American track, the
Nesrro will answe the challenge and
help brfng victory upon the side of
right and justice ami America win
still be the 6me of the free and the
and of the brave.
This is his country. He has never
been a foe to America but has al
ways done his part fof this great
government. Under adverse circum
stances he has always stood lor
America. While we deplore war and
all ot its aepiorame oetana aim re;
suits, vet if fieht we must, we feel
it our duty to say to our peopls in
this country that our interests and
our country's Interests are one. There
is nothing common to the Americans j
that is not. common to us, and when;
the American homes, lands and in-
duetries are protected, the homes
and interests of the Negroes are pro
tected; for the Negroes own mil
lions of dollars' worth of property-
and whatever Is done to protect the
homes1 and industry of the white
race will be done to protect the
homes and property of the, colored
men. s .
I hate war, but when our govern
ment gives command to shoulder
arms, 1 believe that the Negroes
should not attempt to shield them
selves from the task. This is a
t'me when every American citizen
bhould stand shoulder to shoulder
and uphold the hands of our Presi
dent who has worked hard , to keep
lids country out of war. But a
foreign power has shown tie inevi
table upon us. We are men Just as
others are. W;e have a country just
as others have and our interests are
the same as others'. Therefore let's
be loyal' to our government, for
some day soon or late right will be
