PRESIDENT AND THE JAMES?
Tin- announcement that President
Rooacvclt still is in favor of a gener?
ous supplementary appropriation for
the Jamestown Exposition is encour
nglng news to those who are virtually
Interested in the success of the great
celebration which is to take place on
Hampton Roads in 1007.
In all id' the big expositions there
has been government participation am!
generous appropriations. There is no
re-.sou why the cry of economy should
be raised at this special juncture in or?
der to discriminate against Virginia
With a little assistance from the na?
tional government it Is certain that
the Jamestown Exposition will be as
much a linanclul success as was tho
tlic l ewis and Clark exposition, which
bus just conic to a close in Portland,
with a splendid record and with the
Unheard nf possibility of paying bnek
a large proportion of the stock sub?
scriptions which made the exposition
AS TO RAILROAD REBATES.
Ill his IctlCr to PrCHhIoill Roosevelt,
given "in by Colonel Bryan on the c\ ?
of Ids departure for Europe, this para?
graph is noted:
'Pass over the railroad representa?
tives and appeal i<> tin- people, Com?
pel the opponents of railroad legisla?
tion to nice'. I lie IssUOH ill tile open.
There is no logical or even plausible
argument against the legislation which
you recommend. Extortion in rates,
nulalrncss, discrimination against per.
sons, discrimination against places,
niidiiighl tariff and rebates galore?all
of these iniquities have resulted from
lack of regulation. They are intoler?
able and must he stopped. Will you
use the great influence of your office
in secure tin- regulation*! now or will
you leave the honor to a successor'.'"
Tin- opponents of railway legisla?
tion present against this view of I he
matter the following deliverance of
tin- inter State commerce commission
found in the last report of the commis?
"This act lo regulate commerce pro?
hibits a difference in charges as be?
tween shippers 'by any special rate,
rebate drawback or other device,' an I
tin- granting of any undue preference
to any Individual or species of traffic
'III any respect whatever.' and the El
kins amendment, requiring the publi?
cation of tariffs in all cases, prohibits

what ean he expected ol any system of
laws when the President himself .-n

the faulty enforcement of them.
