STATES SHOULD REGULATE RATES Governor O'Neal of Alabama Gives an Address on In terstate Commerce NO HOSTILITY TO RAILROADS Feoling Tht Once Existed Towards Corporations Has Been Large ly Eliminated. New York. Nov. I'll. "Conliscatoi.v rales made by a state arc as bad as predatory rates made bH railroads. Cn- ibr n either can there be that equality of opportunity which all our institu tions try to preserve." So declared Governor Bnttnel Otfeal of Alabama In an address last night a' the annual dinner of the Railway Buelneea. aaoootattow here. Governor O'Neal, however, strongly defended the rights of the states to regulate intra state commerce. "To deny to a state the right to regulate rates or intrastate shipments" said tlie governor, "would h. to en throne the railroad above the Btato or any other power, expose its cltlen.-i to an unrestricted and unlimited taxa tion for private gain and Involve the destruction of sovereignty, looking broadly to the general Interests of so ciety It would be better even for the railroads to have unjust laws If there were no other alternative than to have the right of the state to ragttUtita Hs internal affairs in this regard Impair ed or utterly destroyed. If the right to regulate Intrastate rates reasonably does not reside in the state it realizes now here." GoVernor 0Naal had declared that the law-making power should ap arOBCh the subject of railroad n adula tion in no spirit of passion or preju dice," ami carefully avoid crippling leai enterprises or Impairing their utility. "I am gratified to know that rebates have almost entirely cased to exist, and that the discrimination which has heretofore largely been responsible for the hostile (Bellng that may once have existed has been to a ajffOgl extent elim inated There is no hostility on the part of the people of my section t rallro id corporation "We hilly recognize th work which the railroad towards the development marveloua have dom .f the ln- duatrlal interests of mistakes have been the country, if made they were due to the folly of the state and na tion -in sitting with f,.l led hands and gOl sooner exercising tile power vest ed in UMNO to protect the public. In insisting upon the soevrolgn power of the state to regulate intrastate rates we are not now seeking to restricting t pal a Hull Of railroads, impede or check their growth or prevent fair and even Hiatal returns on their property."
