OUR PUBLIC FORUM III—Julius Kruttschnitt On Financing Railroads The farmers of this nation need to become better acquainted with the railroad men and their prob lems. It is ouly those who know that can give us information and the farmers of America should listen attentively to what the men who manage rail roau have to say. Mr Kruttschnitt, exec utive head of the Southern Pacific-, has written an article dealing with the financing of railroads. He said in part: ‘ The financing of a railroad is a function which toe people, through their servants, the Railroad Commis sioners and the Legislators, have never attempted, but it is a most im portant problem, especially to sec tions of a State where new railroads are needed. The placing of securities has been left entirely with the pro moter and owner of railroads. “The immediate determination of what earnings the railroad shall be permitted to receive and what bur dens It shall have put on It is in the hand* of other servants of the public —the legislators and the Commis sioners. “Managing a railroad is quite differ ent from managing a government where the money is raised by taxa tion. When the expenditures, for good reasons or otherwise, increase, taxes can be equally increased. The railroads, while servants of the pub lic, cannot raise money with such ease and facility. The railroads must keep their expenditures within their incomes because w’hile they have some control over their expenditures they have almost no control over their incomes, their rates being fixed by public authorities. “There is not a railway manager in the country today who is not fearful that under the press of increasing de mands the transportation systems of the country will, in a few years, break down, unless the railroads are allowed to earn larger funds wherewith to build it up. There are vast sections of the country, especially in the West, where more railroads are needed and they cannot be built unless the rail ways raise new capital. “People invest money in order to make money, and they are skeptical as to whether they can make money by investing in concerns that are dealt with stringently and unfairly Rail road securities must be made more attractive to invite investments, and in order that they may be made more attractive, the roads must be allowed earnings that will enable them to meat the increased capital chargee.’’ Subscribe For :he PICAYUNE $1.00 Per Year in Advance LIST OF GRAND AND PETIT JURORS July 1915 Term Circuit Court Convenes One Week Earlier This Term Than Heretofore— Docket is About as Usual.

The cities may then re new the licenses or establish municipal motion picture shows. Many of the cities propose to show educational films in mun icipilized theaters, thinking the surplus earnings of the theaters will increase the city revenues. The proprietors of the motion picture house will lose their busi. nesses without compensation, al though some of the cities are ex tending the time for canceling the licenses until 1916, I Are You a Woman ? | MeCardiii I The Woman’s Tonic I mm a m. wwasrc j
