LET RAILROADS GIVE 8ERVICE
As the matter of most concern to
tho public In tho rnllrond wage dto
pute was tho obtaining of more o flic
lent service, tho country will look ex
pectantly to tho roads to "make good,"
now that wages have been adjusted
and rates have been Increased to
tako caro of tho ratlroa'ds' 'Increased
expenses. If tho right disposition Is
shown toward meeting this demand,
there need be no fear" of tho public
attitude toward tho higher rates. Tho
public was prepared for tho advances
nllowed the carriers by the Interstate
commorco commission, understanding,
naturally, that tho Increase in wages
granted railroad 'employes would bo
passed on to it through Increased
freight and passonger rates.
Tho country has reached tho point
where, If it can get Improved service,
It will not hosltato to pay any rates
that can bo shown to bd reasonable.
It was painfully Impressed during
government operation ot tho roads
that tho latter had not been making
the money tho people had been led to
suppose Indeed, that tho carriers
were In a bad way through having
hoen restrlctbd too closely In their
charges while tho cost ot Iho servlco
nnd mutorlals thoy required was soar
lng. It Is common senso, If wo aro
to avoid a collapso of tho trunsportn
ton system, that tho carrlors cannot
ho kept hobbled too much In tholr
charges whllo everything they have
to buy Is mounting In prlco. Of
course, this does not mean that tho
public will submit forover to tho "vic
ious clrclo" In prlcomnklng, but that,
until things aro stabilized, tho rail
roads will havo to bo ullowed what
ever rates afo necessary to keep tho
ser.vlco going, It wjll contribute to
prosperity to put thq roads In a con
dition to buy the rolling stock of
which thoy stund In such dlrd need.
Tho first essential of prosperity is
to cot tho nrtorles of trado Into
.smooth and vigorous working condi
tion. Nothing would contribute more
to bringing down prices of necessities
than olllciont transportation service.
-OHIO'8 PLACE IN THE SUN
Although theru Is disagreement,
dlio to dlffcronco of judgment, as to
who It will lie, Ohio, tho birthplace of,
six presldontH and tho homo ot nn
other when elected, will havo another
son elevated to tho hlghost offlco In
tho gift ot tho people.
Thoro Ik a good reason for tho
promlnonco of Ohio men in politics.
Tho stuto, whllo Itopubllcnn tho groat
or part of tho last 50 years, has nov
or beon overwhelmingly so. This
has mado it necessary to consider'
what Ohio would do and that entailed
picking candidates who would havo'
strength In that commonwealth. Na
turally a son of tho stato would stand
tho best show In such a contost, For
tunately, fbo, Ohio dovolopcd men.
Cnudldutos woro forced to run on
In tho last half century Ohio has
moro deeply improssod tho views of
her people on tho lnws of tho nation
than has fallen to tho lot of any other
state. This has boon duo to tho fact
that her sons have been lu iohUIomb ot
uuuioniy. , in uu years uwos sons
havo been chosen us chief magistrate
for 32 years of that period, though
two of them failed to servo their
terms through assasslnntlon.
In vlow of tho facts, tho rest of tho
country will havu to bo tolerant if
Ohio seems at times to vo'rgo on tho
