It is said that General Grant, t Hampton's Magazine) when shown a curious electrical machine by which the human voice could be transmitted many 1 miles, and was told that its in I venter had decided to call it a ■ "telephone," displayed consider able interest in the scientific curi ousitv, but observed: "Very striking, indeed, but who on earth do you imagine is going to use such a contrivance?" Likewise, the legend is brought down to us when a charier was sought tor the first railroad in j New England, from Boston to 1 Quincy, our New England for bears protested vigorously , against running a lot of noisy, smoking, steaming iron demons up and down the landscape. The thoughtful Puritans declared that existing transportanion fa cilities were ample, and that these locomotive monsters would scare the cows and hens so badly that they would decline, respec tively, to give milk and to lav eggs! Those things seem merely hum orous to us now, What would the world think of the American people if suca arguments had prevailed, and throughout the last eighty years the people of the United States had refused to allow railroads to he built while every other country built them by hundreds of thousands of miles, and decade after decade derived from them the tremen dous commercial and social ad ! vantages which everybody now recognizes. Of course, you reply that such a thing is absurd. Yet it is ex actly what the people of the Uni ted States have done in the mat ter of transporting light parcels. While all other nations have supplied their people with the best, cheapest, and most effici ent facilities for handling this kind of freight, through parcels posts established and operated by governments, the United j States Ins persistently denied its people the advantages of this ! system. It is commonly said that we j have no parcels post because the (express companies, controlling for private profit the package freight business, will not permit Congress to give the public the facilities it wants and ought to have. In too large part this is I true; and it is unjust and scan* j dalous as if the owners of toll j roads and stagecoach lines of a [century ago had been permitted I to prevent this great .country evutpping itself with railroads. There would he some shadow of excuse for refusing to accept so great a convenience as the parcels post if, in accepting it, we would destroy a large invest ment in the business of the ex press companies. But, in fact, we would not destroy any legi-Ulie timate values in these companies, They own practically nothing on which they would lose a dol lar. Most oi their money is not in the business of transporting freight, but in banking and in vtstnaent enterprises. These would not b e interfered with. Their tangible property actually used in transportation would be required, and undoubtedly be taken over at good figures bv the government, when it estab lished a parcels post business. Their investments in stocks j bonds and banking business | would b e undistributed. The express companies would lose ! nothing except their graft—the ! privilege of charging outrageous rates for the service they render, In morals and equitp that ought to be ended as soon as possible. The truth is that it is not the political and financial influence j of the express companies which 1 keeps Congress from giving this I nation a parcels post. It is the pathetic and benighted ignor ance of a considerable section of our own people, who have been led to believe that the parcels post would injure them. It is I well-nigh impossible to believe j that there can still bt millions of intelligent Americans who doubt that national prosperity I must be promoted by every in ! crease of the facilities and eheap icning of tfce cost of transpocta tion Yet there is such a section j of the American public. Mis-. j I guided and ignorant, it lias per- niitted itself to become the chief bulwark of protection to the ex press companies' graft. It per sists in believing, in the face of P earl Y a century of world exper tence to the contrary, that there is danger in too easy, too cheap, and too universal transporta tion! sides to the story.
