The action of the Groat Northern
itt putting in effect very low home
seekers' rate and extending the time
until May 1 next is a legitimate and
businest-liko move. It would not be
so if adopted by many otherbroads of
country, for the conditions are not
similar. The Nort hern roads have soon

them for the settlement of the coun
try diverted to the Southwest be
caulse the raites.were made lower. The
making of the rates to the intending
settler is an important factor, as ox.
perience has demonst rated. Again,
the pbject in placing the limit for
these excursions so far ahead is that
the homesoekor may mia.ke his calcu
lations in advance, knowing that
when he is reddy to move the low
rates will be in force.
The homeseekers going to the far
WVest ar-e really in search of homes.
For two years little other travel has
taken advantage of these rates. This
would not be true of Eastern roads
if such rates . were adopted. The
traveling public would monopolize
such reduction, and perhaps the
brolle mnight benefit.
As a business proposition it is but
in line with J. J. Hill's shrewd fore
sight. His road 'differs materially
from'others, it is operated and con
trolled largely by one man, and is
conducted as he would condtwet a
private business. Hie knows thmat
when the country along his road is
settled tup he will h ave more business.
If no inducement wore offered to the

than in railroading. If twenty trains
can find work where now only one

long-headed enough to soo that by
sa?rificing a few dollars in railroad,
fares -now he will reap thousands in
the near future throligh the industry
of these samrte hoieseekors in the do
velopment of the country.
Ordinary methods vould be too
slow. There are long stretches on the
Great Northern, as there are on all
of the transcontineLtal roads, where
there is no business whatever for the
road. There are sections where, if
they could be separated fron the sys
tom, would show great loss. Many
miles of unprofitable trackage is oft en
represent in a district which as a
whole returns a profit, and there is
110 way to make every mile profitable
except by increasing the traflic. T1he
traffic can only be increased by set
tlemenit and developmrent.
The growth of the great West may
go on for a century. Its vacant lands
may all be taken up in twenty years,
or they may .be absorbed in five years,
depending upjon1 the energy displayeod
in settlement; but if the land is
brought under cultivation in five
years instead of twenty yours it is
quito apparent that the railroads
will have the advantage of fifteen
years of increased traflic, every year
increasing over the other, and, wvith
the diversity of interests represented,
dlecreasing the liability to crop fail
That is what the Great Northern
proposes to do, anid this is what
other roads will do if the manage
ment can over see beyond the im
mediate returns of revenue and adopt
a more liberal policy. For further
