ONE DOLLAR PER YEAR IN ADVANCE
FORCING GOVERNMENT OWNERSHIP.
No influence is doing more to bring about Government ownership of the
railroads than the managements of the roads. Every bit of legislation that
is not to the railroads' liking is followed by some act of reparation on the
part of the roads.
Last year there was an abundance of cars for the shipment of coal and
food products in every State. But shortly after the eight-hour law was
passed by Congress, the announcement was made that there was a dearth
of rolling stock.
Wholesale coal dealers were unable to get fuel from the mines, and mil
lions of bushels of wheat could not be shipped out of the Northwest because
the railroads did not have sufficient cars.
Yet every wholesale coal buyer in this city, as is the case everywhere, is
aware of the fact that when a car of coal reaches this city, the empty is
p-rnutted to stand on the tracks for days before it is returned to the
The railroads 'nave made no effort to take cac of the public this year
There is no more excuse for the car shortage now than there was 0:10
year ago. and there were ample cars then.
By harassing the people because of what Congress dots is causing the
public to lose faith in the management of railroads. The people have
beep compelled to pay one hundred per cent more for coal this winter than
was asked twelve months ago. The supply of fuel is as great today as it
was last year, but the demand lor it is no greater.
Whenever the railroads attempt to neap burdens upon the public for the
actions of Congress, the railroads exhibit poor judgment. When the public
ue.ee becomes prejudiced against : corporation, it is not easily satisfied. The
pernio, when oppressed, are more apt to urge Congress to go further than
A few more years of mismanagement will place the railroads imc-er the
control of the Government, ami when that advanced step is taken., rail
roads will render service to the people.
