"In point of authenticity tho book Is absolutely to be relied upon." St. Lout Pot- "Governor Larrabee came to Iowa before any railroad had reached the Mississippi. CnjriiKlng in manufacturing, the Inconvenleuces which he suffered from want of trans portation facilities Instilled liberal opinions concerning railroads. He made private conn t Ions to new roads and he advocated public aid to them. As a legislator he Intro duced a bill authorizing a 8 per cent, tax in aid of railroad construction. He believed that tho common law and competition could be relied upon to correct abuses and to solve the rate problem. It has not been until since these e (Torts were made that he has become convinced, as he says In his preface, that 'where combination is possible compe tition is Impossible.' The object of this work Is explained to be to set forth the objec tions which lie against the management of railroads as private property. They are used by their managers for speculative purposes. They cannot perform their proper func tions so long as they are used only for .the Interests of their stockholders. In order to serve their real purpose, 'they must become In fact what they are In theory, highways to be controlled by tho government as thoroughly and effectively as the common road, the turnpike and the ferry, the postofflce ana the custom-house?'
