"1 don't kuow bow many they need. But' if Mr. V. 0. Gilbert bos the right to nppoint seven ho has just as much legal authority to nppoint 700, with no limitations on their isalary. When I declined to coun- itouance such a procedure, I be gan to be assailed in letters from all over the state, wanting to know whether I was opposed to Tho common school system.

O p p osing the Smith-Scott ' Bill TOO MUCH AUTHORITY GIVEN COMMISSION By Harry Bloom Frankfort, Ky., Feb. 2. Wible L. Mapother. first vice president, and since the Illness of Milton H. Smith ohief exeoutlvo of tho Louisville & Nashville railroad, talked for half an hour in protest against tbe en actment of the Scott-Smith bill to extend the powers of the Railroad Commission before the joint com' lmittees of the House and Senate last imgnt. -men ur. wapotner dolled his official togi, andjmade what he tstmeA a man-to-man talk to the committees. "Forget that lam a railroad offl clal," he said, "and that yon are lawmakers. What is tbe situation in tbe United Stat6i? "I know of no parellel in any country on the globe where tbe greatest single industry Is left in the absolute autooratio management of political bodies, who make no ac counting to anyone and possess no qualifications exoept to gat votes, Can you beat It? Railroading is the greatest and most scientific biuinest except war." Roads Want Square Deal Sharp fire was dlreotod by Mo nomer against tho power to suspend ratea pending an investigation of their Justice. "That is the most ih iqultous law ever enacted," he de clared. "AH the railroads want is a square deal, and rate suspension doesn't give It to them." He related the oase of tho suspen slon of coal rates out of East St. Louis for a year and eleyoQ months, Dy the L 6. 6. At the end of this time the commission declared the Increase was justified. The railroads lost hundreds of thousands ot dol lars because of the suspension. Had the rates been kept In force and la ter reduced, the railroads would have been compelled to rebate tbe increases with Interest, but they could not collect for the period of in vestigation. Mr. Mapother termed suspension as confiscation of prop erty. He also Inveighed against the pro vision to give the commission pow er to make joint rates. Sixty-five per cent of the L. & N's. business, according to his estimate, was han dling coal and arbitary Imposition of the joint rates might tie up the coal business. In his oplonlon no more drastic or radical legislation could have beeu designed than the bill under consideration. It was Inopportune In hit opinion, and Iwould set baok railroad development In the State. The L. & N. be deolalred had spent $20,000,000 in the past five years In the development of East Kentucky but he believed that tbe passage of the Uw would threaten future de velopement. "The country may now be on tho verge of the greatest business pros perity in its history," said Mr. Ma pother, following it wlthja quotation from a message by President Wil son favoring the soientlflo Investi gation of the needs of tbe railroads and the ascertainment of the wisest regulation. State Rights Must Oo "State rights must go," was Ma pother's prophecy. "The railroads have too many master. The L. & N. today is compelled to obey four teen coinmisBlotip. One commauds one sort of screou, the next another kind. This Btate tolls the road to use a oirtalu caudle-power head light, aud the next state may oem niand another that may not be a bit better. They oouillct ou every hand and this sort ot thing can't go on. The time will coma when the State power will bw purely Ipoal. The railroads will have but one master to serve." Intuiting.
