has an opinion on the railroad qucss
tion and dares to make it known. If
the Herald assumed the character
of its cotemporary, it would not dare
to have an opinion of its own, or if
it had, it would be of a mere dish
water consistency. The Herald
has i dvocated a " Freight and Fares"
bill which it now knows it is im
possible ts pass, and we would be
false lo .he interests of the l ommu
nity did we advocate time wasted

lower rates fiom Maricopa to cor
respond wlih rates from Los Angeles?
This would not only relieve our
valley but be so much the more
favorable to southern markets. But
then railrui.d companies are not in
the habit of lowering freights ex.
cept on pressure of competition.
Relief irom the tlilemma is to be
sought Vy asking ur legislature to
pass a freight and Fares bill. It
is to be hoped that some turn of
events will make it possible to pass
tucli a bill, but at present our faith
in the attempt could bo hidden en
tirely out of sight by the meal from
a sii.gle mustard seed, because there
is sufficient votos against the propo
sition in one of the tranches of the
legislature lo kill it and it is barely
to be pnsumed that 1h railroad
company will be a.-.jeep concerning
the matter, even if Iheie were a ma-
orlty against them. They are not
a crowd to lose a trick under any
circumstances and w ith the prede
iictionji which are weLil known to
be entertained by a numbftr of mem
bers of the legislature, the) attempt
to pass such a VAH will lie a mere
stumbling bloc'u to other legislation.
