Railroads and the People. For twerily yoars tho railroads as a Class wore as arrogant as the grand dukes of Russln and as intractable as tho Bourlions. They sowed the seeds of a doep popular rescntmont far nnd wldc, und to-day tho wholc country Is renping the bitter hurvest o[ that sowing. Tho railroads aro eonfronted by a desperaie Bituatlon, which ls not beeoming easier. All classes of rallroad employes aro do manding greatly increased wages, and ln many cases, notwithstandliig tlio Increase, nro glving less cfflclent work per day than fivc years ago. Material for rall? road construotion and operation has lllte wiso advanced onormously in cost. and ?ehows 110 sign of early rccession. On tho Other hand, increased business ln all "branches demands immedlate extension of transportation facilltles, which tho rail? roads aro not able to grant. Ordlnairily, Wlth manufaeturing and agrlculture and minlng at the full tlde of prosporlty, tho railroads would welcome the chance for ?prowth, and would borrow the capital tecessary for new tracks and new cquip tnent. Llke any other boom, thls expan tion mlght be overdone, and that fear tnlght lessen the wiHIngness of bankers to adv-.:.'.-. v?ry :a.:ce Eams for such pro lectE.

Comparisons. ln our issue of Wednesday, tlio 3d in stant, wo rofoiTod lo the fact thnt this clty and Alexnndrla had returned for laxatlon more pianos than clocks, and thnt tho lista strongly indlcated that the law was being evadevl. lt seems thai. Rlchmond hns been nroused to n dlscus slon of the same questlon. In this paitlc ular wo aro more favored, for tlie renson that, estlmntlng Rlchmond's populntlon at 100,000, sho hns only one clock for every 212 porsons, whllo tlils city has one foi every thlrty-two. Richmond Is, there fore, noarly seven tlmes as slow as this clty. If we are a tortolso, Rlchmond ls a snall. And yet our esteemed contem porary, The Times-Dlspatch, 1ms tho hardlhood to say ln lts Saturday issue that "the explnnatlon is simplo, and has more than once been made by Tho Tlmes - Dispatch. The great majority of Rich mondcrs fall to Itemlze tholr personnl ef focts, but 11st thom in tho nggregato. But it matters not to tho State, provided all the vlslble personnl property ls returned." In splto of the fact that The Tlmes TMspatch hns a very cuto way of saying "the explanatlon is simple, and has more than onco boon roferred to in The Tlmes Dlspatch." wo do not think Tho Times Dlspatch hns explnined it, nor do wo re call the time nnd placo when our es teemod contomporary Teferrod to this questlon before.?Frederlcksburg Journal. The flrst explanatlon was made several months ago, when another esteomed con temporary took Richmond to task, and ln connectlon wlth the explanatlon wo instltuted other comparisons thnt wero not to Rlchmond's dlscredit. Our Fred? erlcksburg contomporary now forces us to make comparisons with that clty. "Wo lind that Frederlcksburg .llsts 147 clocks, vnlued at $688, while Richmond llsts 469 clocks, -valued at $G,44G. it would appear, therefore, that tho average clock in Frederlcksburg Is worth only $1, whllo in Rlchmond lt ls worth $13.80. Will the Journnl explaln the dlfference? We- flnd also that tho average watch In Freder? lcksburg ls worth only $17, whllo ln Richmond it ls worth $27. Wo havo sald that watches, clocks and jewelry are by mnny citizens l|sted In tho aggregate. We flnd that Rlchmond llsts watches, clocks, jewelry and household and kitchen furniture aggrogatlng $2,730, 044, whllo Frederlcksburg llsts on tho same accounts $87,070. By tho census of 1900 Rlchmond had a populatlon of 85,050; Frederlcksburg a populatlon of 5,0i!8. Taklng these flgures as a basis of calculation, tho por capita assessmont of watches, clocks, jewelry and fui.ilturo In Rlchmond Is $32; in Frederlcksburg, a fractlon over $17. The total assessment of all personal property ln Rlchmond, as shown ln tho Stnte Audltor's report for 1900, wns $21, 008,157, or a per capita assessment of neurly $250; ln Frederlcksburg, $52C,258, or a per capita of $100.
