When the detective furnished

was never susjironed of having

to be known by the public. Ono
one of his visits, he met the 1

his money and watch-with the
command to drop it on the c

an ft * regulation of railroads, and no One
more capable of discussing the subject than those who
finance and manage railroad propertios, for experience
of is the handmden of understanding and practical wis
dom the stepping stone to success.
tFrank Trumbull, Chairman of the Railroad Com-r
mittee on Federal Relations, when asked for his views
on the effect of regulation upon railroad investments said
"The desirability of regulation 1a, of course, admitted.
Whether the regulation the railroads have had is a suc.
Scess is a fair subject for discussion. One thing is cer
tain-there is at present practically no appetite for fresh investment in rail.
roads; that is for new construction or large improvements.
Now that an efficient banking system has been established by the Fed
eral Government, a solution of the railway problem, fair alike to investors
.and to the rest of the public, is first in importance among our national do.
Smestic questions. The Interdependence of railway owners and employe and I
of the shipping and traveling public has been demonstrated so often that I do
not attempt here to prove it over again.
Are railroad managers entirely to blame? Suppose you are attempting
Sto administer a railroad in an honest and straightforwrd' way. Most rail- i
roads are so managed; there have been some exceptions, just as there have
been wicked bankers, farmers who put their best apples in the top of the bar.
rol, and other people who have made sharp horse trades. But in either of
the cases mentioned, does anyone expect the State to penalize the banking
j business as a whole, or the apple business or the raising of horses?
bThe situation is much as if you had built a hotel In some ood sized
town, say, twenty or thirty years ago. Probably very few, if any, of the bsized
rooms were provided witl bath rooms. Perhaps the furnitue consisted of a bed
bed, a bureau, a wash-stand and two or three chairs. Suprpoe othat afte in
vesting your money in that way the State passed a law stipulating that the
price per room should not be over two dollars per day. Suppose after that
the State passed other laws requiring a certain number of bath rooms, ad
ditional furnishings, fire escapes, screens on all the windows, sanitary ap.
pliances, etc. Perhaps these requirements are reasonah ie :,nd iii the public
interest, but where would you get the money for new and better hotels under
such restrictions of profits? I have said that the situation of the railroads is
much like that, but the hotel investment Is simplicity Itself as comparead U i
investing in a railroad."
er terms of metric weight or
measure may be used if it ap
pears that a definite trade cus
tomn exists for marking articles
with such other terms and the
airticles are marked in accord
anee with the custom."
