FROM THE DOPE BOX.
Editor Argus: The debate on thi
subject lias progressed far enough, and
sufficient testimony has been presented
to indicate some reasonably certaii:
conclusions. Interest will likely in
crease till a decision is arrived at.
Of course, the railroads will put n;
fight; and they will make a sharp
how of liirht in proportion as they uu
erstand th" hopelessness of their case.
I'hey will do all they can to make th-.
law unpopular, increasing freight rate;.
refusing passes, cutting off excursions.
rippling the service, discharging em
ployes, and in every way trying to m-
onvcnicncc the pui.ltc. 1 bus we m:
afelv lorecast the outcome.
We are told that passenger rates
have been for many years on a declin
ing scale; that tiiey are cheaper lit tins
ountry than anywhere in the tyorld.
with better service. The history of the
ubject is worth recalling.
My first railroad ride fiom Chicago to
Rock Island county was in the fall of
lvoi. I paid 4 cents a mile in green-
aeks. wot til then somewhere about 1't
ents on the Hollar. The rate remain
it that figure r.bont 1ft years, when ill-"'
cent rate- was established in Illinois.
The railroads resisted on the ground
that the state iiad no jurisdiction. "We
in do what we please with our own."
Rut the highest court decided against
them, and for over 2ft years 2 cents a
mile bas been Hie regular price of rail
road tickets. If rates have declined we
must look elsewhere.
The Illinois Central has caused, or
permitted to be puMisiied, ihe state
ment that its income from its passen-
er business is two and one-seventh
cents a mile; and the purpose is tu
how that the 2-cent rate is unjust be
cause mo road would nave to carry
passengers at a los.-. which wouid he
quivaleiit t "taking private property
or putilic use without due compensa
Rut the statement proves nothing of
the kind. There is nothing to show the
ost of tile service, or the profit under
present conditions. Indeed, it would be
almost impossible to separate, only ap
proximately, the cost of the passenger
mil freight service, and assign to each
its exact share.
Hut the statement does prove this:
If one passenger call him A pays :!
ents, some other passenger eflll him
P. pays 1 2 7 cents, for both together
pay 4 2 i cents, ot course, u is nappy.
He don't want roads to carry at a loss!
And her1 we have the whole situa
tion. Tlie' reduced rates, of which we
hear so much, come about by carrying
i portion of the passongei perhaps a
third of the entire number, at cost or
below, and compelling the others t-i
make it up. The amount of the reduc
tion in the average passenger ra'e per
mile is the exact measure of the oxtitil
of this discrimination. And the worst
thing about it is that these special
rates are largely taken advantage oT
bv well-to-do people, while people of
mall means generally pay the full
price, l ins injustice we are up against.
Shad it be corrected? That is the whole
The assertion that the 2-cent rate
will bankrupt the roads is not worth
argument. It can he only determined
by experience by a fair trial of the
lower rates. If the railroad companies
care anything for public opinion, for
the good will and confidence of the
people, they will in good faith accept
the new law. arrange their schedules
so as to accommodate the misiness, ami
for a year or two try the plan of giving
everv passenger an equal equivalent lor
The case of the sma'l road running
through thinly settled districts does not
apply in our state. All the branch roads
eb.ng to and are feeders for the great
railway systems. On the basis of mile
age, it costs more to operate these, but
the business they bring to the main
lines amply compensates. A graded
