Railroads Want Aid.
The railroads are prepared, it is
said, to make a desperate fight to st
cure the accomplishment of legislation
that will enable them to take care of
their outstanding indebtedness, pro
vide for building extensions and mak
ing improvements that are badly
needed. Not only will the railroais
carry on an active" legislative cam
paign along these lines, but the are
also getting ready to oppose vigorous
ly the proposed socalled organized la
bor bills that are to be introduced and
which will affect the railroads very
seriouBly, it is claimed.
Proposed "Labor Laws."
While these labor measures are os
tensibly chiefly in the nature of let
ter safety provisions for the emploves
they do. at the same time, require trie
addition of many more men in differ
ent branches of railroad service. S -eral
of the railroads have alre&dr male
the necessary publication of the fact
that they will seek authority at th
hands of the legislature to merge Into
their respective parent companies a
number of subsidiary lines. At the last
session of the legislature governor Col
quitt opposed all proposed railroad
consolidations. It is said, however,
that he has become more liberal 1n h-i
I view of this character of legislation
anu it is generally understood that h.e
will not oppose such bills whee the
lines involved are not parallel and com

Most of the measures of real i- -portance
will not receive considerat' n
until along towards the latter part of
the regular session. This has alwa s
been the ca3e and is due to the fact
that nearly every member is dis in
clined to seriously take up bills of an
important character until his own pet
measures have been disposed of.
