Bscatory. This high ^«Ourt took the
position that capftafdn vested in rail
roads, as well as in Other lines of pri
vate property, is entitled to earn 6
per cent on a faff capitalization and
that thearbitary enactment of a two
eent fare rendered such a return upon
the lines in Pennsylvahia Impossible.
It also took the positionthatrrailroads
not only have the right to insist upon
a fair return crpon both freight and
passenger" business, but that it is
their duty to do so in order that one
class of patrons may not toe com
pelled to pay an inequitable rate to
make up the losses Sustained in an
other department.
If the-arbHary erractment of a two

Unquestionably We afifing some ||
of the gravest problems rtlat ever con

problems grovr largely oat of a war
which is without precedent in history.

acute crisis a problem which might
otherwise havff'tgW solved gradually
and withoutah'y "fir-reaching indus
trial disturbance.
The United States is a heavy debtor
Nation. During the average yearour
balance of trade against the rest of
the world amounts-to approximate!)
$500,000,000, but on top of this we al
ways owe approximately another
$500,000,000 which 'heretofore we have
been able-toewwd off by selling Eu
rope irtduSWhS^steurttieS “to that
amount. No#, ‘however, the great
warring countries•fiiVe served notice
that they nob only expect us to pay
our debts above our trade balances in
gold, but thee*4* addition tfiey look
to us to buyTjfwjlrf#W!rehw#hundxeds
of millions of ddfctw VortbW Amer
ican securities which are now held
abroad. It was to deliver this grim

i herds of buffalo and savage Indians—
j and from that hour to this they have
| contributed their full share to a story
of thrift and enterprise which swells
with pride the breast o' every true
Nebraskan.
The last federal census report shows
that from 1900 to 1910 the general
value of Nebraska farm lands in
creased 156 per cent—and in view of
these facts, had the men and womeh
who put hundreds of millions of dol
lars into Nebraska railroad securities
years ag«f invested their money in Ne
braska farm lands, would not the in
vestment have proven infinitely more
profitable for them? And have not
the railroads played a tremendous part
in these advancing land values in the
past,and will they not also have much
to do with the value which will be
added from this time forward? Have
not the interests of the fa tuner and
the railroads always gone hand in
hand in the great Western country?
Did they not conquer the wilderness
together and would the progress of
one have been possible without
the other? Should not the
railroads of this state, therefore, have
the good will and friendship of the
farmer when all they ask is that they
be permitted to earn a reasonable in
|eome upon their investment?
Splendid as has been our progress
in the past, Nebraska today stands
merely on the threshold of her true
destiny. We have ample room for
thousands of additional tillers of the
soil. So,too.our splendid inland towns
and cities plead for factories in order
that we may ourselves produce much
of the finished merchandise for which
our people spend many millions of
dollars annually. Again, we need
hundreds of miles of new railroad
mileage before we shall be able to
make the most of our agricultural
and commercial possibilities—ana
the millions necessary for the con
struction of these factories and these
added transportation facilities will
not be forthcoming unless we treat
fairly the millions already invested
within our mids.
