FAIR PASSENGER RATES. . Our western state legislatures hare made a hopeless muddle of the rail roads' demands for increased passen ger fares, because legislative bodies cannot intelligently decide adminis trative questions. Only investigation and study can settle the reasonable ness or' unreasonableness of the ad vances asked for. It is proper for the legislatures to say that the rail roads shall be regulated, but experts must do the actual regulating. After perfunctory audiences, the legislatures of the various states without any reliable or accepted f)g--ures, have stifled the railroads' de mands in committee or on the floor. Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, North and South Dakota ind Michigan have provided regulat ing commissions and the legislatures 'hemselves have ample powers of in vestigation, yet not in a single in- lance nave the questions been re- erred to a responsible . agent. indications are tnat the passenger usiness is not bearing its fair share if the costs and that the Illinois man- ifacturer is right in asserting that he shippers have been bearing an ?xtra burden. Density of population iiakes passenger traffic and it fol- ows that the heavier the traffic the "ghter the cost per unit of transport 'ation. Illinois, with a population of 491 per mile of railroad, subscribes 'ower tariffs than eight eastern states with a population of 1,036 per mile. The interstate commerce commission -ecently allowed the eastern carriers n increase to 2 cents per mile, and he supreme court of Pennsylvania, considering a population of 704 per -nile, held the 2 cent law confisca tory. Figures compiled -by the Pennsyl vania lines east of Pittsburgh reflect -he operating results of all steel "rains, daylight limiteds, monumental erminals, and the competitive condi icns or the passenger business. In '903, 56 per cent of Jhe dollar earned iy passenger 'traffic went to pay pas senger operating expenses. In 1910 ;t had swollen to 90 per cent, and in 912 to 98 per cent. The freight ratio n the same period stood steady at 70 er cent The comparative net earn- ngs of the. three years follow: 19U 1910 1S03 Freight ri 38,I19,680 34,715,aSJ V1,X enfrr M6 3,163,103 per piimw re Irala - 2-cmtm QicaM 52.7 era t But the rate question has not been ettled, and our western states a fronted with the paradox of i 'I'pung tiie final decision from the ederal courts or from the Interstate emmerce commission. If the western o&ds sncceed in establishing the 2Vi nts a mile basis on - interstate traf c, as seems likely from the sitnar ion in the east, the question of dis rimination will be raised immediate y as a result of the lower intrastate are. Commercial interests will not derate conflicting passenger fares. The same question was settled by he supreme court as regards freight barges in the famors Shreveport de ision. In cases of discrimination the merstate rate is controlling. So the state legis'atures will hare accom plished nothing except to furnish aid and comfort to the enemies of state regulation as opposed to federal ref lation.
