We give space on another page today for an im"
portant interview with Charles S. Mellen, the de
posed president of the New Haven railroad —the
scapegoat of the Morgan-Rockefeller crowd of high
Mellen tells our interviewer that government
ownership of railroads is coming during his lifetime.
The only amazing thing about this is that Mellen,
the private monopolist, predicts it. And as a private
monopolist he doesn't like the thing he clearly fore
sees. So he tells us of the bugaboos which float, like
liver-specks, before the eyes of all who fear and op
pose government ownership of public utilities.
Nevertheless, the interview, coming from a man
like Mellen, is interesting and we give it to our read
ers as a contribution to current thought on a very
Sees the Light
The trend of sentiment among alert business men
is indicated in the re-alignment of P. H. Hebb for
municipal ownership of street railways in Tacoma.
The day has passed when the only advocates of the
people doing things for themselves were so-called
"crank agitators." Hard headed business men are
beginning to see that American cities cannot keep
pace with the progress of the world without the gov
ernmental functions being utilized for the people's
America spends hundreds of millions every year
traveling in Europe, but it is probably worth all it
costs this country, for every citizen who crosses the
pond comes back convinced American cities must
begin to serve the people instead of simply collecting
taxes to spend in municipal bookkeeping to keep a
lot of clerks busy.
Hebb is only one of thousands of men of means who
are seeing the light.
After all, possibly Russia may be civilized. There
is no doubt that the trial of Beiliss, the Jew, was
hatched up to precipitate a Jewish massacre, but the
Russian bear heard the rumbling of disapproval from i
the rest of the world and the bloody hand was stayed. |
This indicates that at last Russia is becoming some
what amenable to world opinion.
This is probably due to the good thrashing she got i
a few years ago from the little brown Japs. It is be
ginning to soak into the overgrow m nation that she j
must change her ways if she wants to stay in the

If the authorities just push this idea of bringing

may have to start a new Annanias club all over

Jim Hill told the Commercial club he was glad to
