Others dodged the qiesti<i altu

be deceived, and they and the ,ho

8result, never before in Ohio was

"What tibout the National party ?"
was asked. .
"There are many good men, some:

Senator'. "The'idea that they can.

telkowledge there is no discrimiinait

nost impartiality. Buht I am not so
endy to concede th6 application 'of~
he samne principle always in- the
natter of freight rates over this

liscrinmiutations are -imade, to any
rieat extent, by the pr'esenlt manage

dlong thec line o'f the road, but I do
lay that the rates have been so ar

rille road in particular, just as Mr.
L.. P.opo, general freight anid passen -
for' agent,' Atlantic Coast Line,.etc.,
used the road as a feeder for- the
a.thmntie Coast Line. To effect this
>bject tihe first change made was a
~emtporary incea.e of the Southern
'ates, and reduction oif Northern
-ates. This was done by Mr. Haas'
>rder early in September.' A -little
atbr these were revised and th.ej
donthorn"rates were lowered to last :

>r-ought more particularly to nmy
uobice, I bog you will' allow me - to
lustrate my' meaning by figures. . .I I
bake the .rates :on cotton.- -Last

$2.5O per bale ; 'to Now York" $4.25

to Clu-loston was made $2.50 por

Perlill somlic peooplo may not call
this discrimination .'gainst Charles

cliarged per 100 poundA, . .and
ainoint-s to about 81.30 pr bale,

Northern rates fromu Ridgeway and

in which the above figuros may be

from Winusbdro- to Columbia,--at

29 eent per 100 pounds, or about

The writer is aware that the man
