Lincoln, Neb., July 20.?Wllllam Jennings
Bryan to-day issued the followlng statement:
"Government ownershlp is not an immedlate
issue. A large majority of the people still hope
for effective regulatlon. Whlle they so hope, |
they will not eonslder government ownershlp. j
Whlle many Democrata believe, and Mr. Bryan
la one of them, that public dwnerahip of ratl
road8 is the ultimate solutlon of the problem,
still those who believe that the public wlll finally
in self-defence be diiven to ownershlp recog
nize that regulatlon must be tried under the
most favorable clrcumstances before the massea
will be ready to try a more radical remedy.
"Regulatlon cannot be sufnciently tried within
the next year. There is no desire anywbere to
make government ownershlp an issue ln 1908.
Mr. Bryan fully agreea wlth those who believe
that it would be unwi.se to turn attentlon from
regulation, on which the people are ready to act,
t<> government ownershlp, on which the people
are uot ready to act. To inject the government
ownershlp question into tho next campaign
would simply give representatlves of the rail
roada a chance to dodge the Issuea of regulation
and deceive the public.
"So far, the railroads have been successful in
preventing effective federal regulation, and Btate
regulation, aa a rule, haa been reatrained by the
i'i: ted States courts. It Is aboul twenty yeara
sinre the Interstate Cbmmerce Commission was
created. It required about ten yeara for the
oourta to find out that the powera conferred were
insuffh lent, and then it took about ten yeara to
procure an amendment. The railroada fought
the amendment at every step, and the Preaident
wa8 finally forced to compromise witb the rail?
roads' K- publii ans ln the Senate in order to
procure thelr aupport.
"Even tli.it amendment, obtained wflh tre
? ua effort, falla short of what it should be.
lr aima to atop passes and rebatee. The rali
profit pecuniarily by botb the atoppage of
s and the prohibition of passea, bul ex
tortlonate rates atill exist. State legialatlon for
? luction of rates baa resulted In an agi
? ? p rl of the railroada for legislation
which wlll deprive the atate of authorlty, and
lize all rate legislation ln Congreas.
"The Dem icratic party must meel the Issuea
presented; it must resiat the encroachmenta "ti
the authorlty of the atates. 11 muat Inaist on
the ? sen Ise of federal power f.>r the regulation
of interstate commerce, and lt must Insist upon
the exerclse of atate authorlty for the exerclae
of all of the power vested In the state. Thla
question has grown in Importance during the
last year, and its promlnence wlll b?* ln ?
if any attempt ia made to impalr Btate authorlty.
Impotent to regulate
the railroada as it ia to e: the truata
and to reform the tarlff.
"The Democratlc party has ln thr->o national
rampaigna d< manded effective rallroad regula?
tlon, whlle the Republican national platforma
have been allont "n the aubject. The Pn
has partly adopted the Democratlc vlew on thls
BUbJect, bul ? I far tho Republican leaders have
reaolutely opposed lt. The Preaident la heirin*
to educate the people up to the need of rallroad
regulatlon, but his party, under Ita praaanl lead

where they wlll yi.-M '>niy a reaaonable

commend itaelf not only ti> Democrata, but to
