13,424 EDITORS AT INSTIGATION
OF RAILWAY EXECUTIVES. -
New York.. June 4. Public opinion
Is very strongly in favor of an early
return of the railroads to their own
era, as shown by the vote of nearly
6,000 editors of dally and weekly news
papers throughout the country. A
questionnaire sent to every editor In the
country 13,424) brought replies from
5,922 or 44 per cent., and S3 per cent,
of the editors reported their communi
ties in favor of a resumption of private
The questionnaire was conducted on
behalf of the Association of Railway
Executives, and was completed before
President "Wilson announced in his re
cent message to congress that the gov
ernment would relinquish control of
the railways at the end of the year.
' "Editors were asked not to give their
personal opinions, but o appraise the
Nentiment in their communities. The
four chief questions Were as follows:
1. Does public opinion in your judg
ment seem to favor the return of rail
roads to private ownership and oper
ation as soon as this can properly be
2. If so, is this opinion in part based
on the desire to see competition in
service and facilities restored?
3. What is the present sentiment in
your community on government owner
ship and operation of railroads?
4. "What has been the feeling regard
ing the proposal to extend the period
or government operation for five years?
On the first question, 'roes public
opinion In your ' judgement seem to
favorthe return of railroads to private
ownership and operation as soon s
this can properly be accomplished ? S3
per cent, voted yes, 11 per cent voted
no, while 4 per cent were doubtful
and 2 per cent expressed no opinion.

with 7 per cent doubtful , and 4 per
Oa the fourth question, "What has
been the feeling regarding the proposal
to extend the . period of government
operation for five years?" the vote wa-j
as follows: Against, 74 per cent; for.
10 per cent; doubtful, 9 per centffl
blank, 7 per cent.
That public opinion on the railroad
question is not divided on party lines
is plain from a study of the vote in the
various states. In Texas, for example,
although only 3 of the 331 editors re
plying are republicans, ; the number in
favor of a return of the roads is 88
per cent, considerably higher than the
percentage S4 per cent) in the strong
republican state of Pennsylvania. ;
Tennessee voted 97 per cent as com
pared with S3 per cent in Maine.
Of the 5,922 replies, 2.052 were from
republican papers, 1,689 from demo
cratic, and 2,181 independent and scat
tering. The states showing 95 per cent or
more in favor of the return of the roads
