Tho Editor's Familiar Chat.
Dr Wile's two excellent magazines,
The New England Medical Monthly and
The Preicrlptlon, have been combined In
Id next week's Issue we expect to
print the highly deserved tribute of Hev
W. H. Barrows to the memory of that
esteemed man, the late Dea Sherman
Tuttle of Sottthbory.
We reprint, this week, from the Con
gregatlonallst a very interesting and clear
statement of the Turkish or Eastern
question, which will pay anyone a care
ful reading. It is from the pen of Rev
Edwin Ilallock BylDgton of Brooklyn
assistant pastor at the Church of the Pil
grlms, where the famous Dr Storrs has
so long held forth. Mr Byington Is the
son of a missionary, has been on the
ground, and knows what he is talking
about. lie Is a personal friend of the
editor of The Bee, who has .often Inter
viewed him In the capacity of a reporter.
It It a popular thing to "jump on"
corporations, .and here in Connecticut
the grumbler and croaker usually takes
the Consolidated road as the great and
only monstrous evil. Just now the
patrons of the little Shepaug, which if
controlled by the Consolidated, appear
to be aggrieved over the freight rates,
which are said to be high. What are
the facts in this case? This road has
never, as we understand, been a high
paying venture. It runs through a
sparsely settled country region, and on
Its entire route does not touch any
populous towns. For years the patrons
of this road submitted to five-cent pet
mile passenger tariff, under the old
management, which was promptly re
duced without petition when the Con
solidated obtained control. It is very
probable they will also reduce the freight
tariff, as before stated, this road .hae
not been a bonanza to Its owners, and
were It not for the summer business,
could scarcely be maintained. Under
the Consolidated management the prop
erty hat been improved, the passenger
rates reduced and the service Improved.
We believe In giving even a great cor
poration Itt just dues. Take our own
Berkshire division, for another example.
Where Is the candid-minded man who
will not tay that the service has not
been Improved since the Consolidated
obtained . control? The freight and
pattenger rates have been reduced, and
the train tervice on the whole, Is better
than under the old regime. And this has
been the result whenever the Consoli
dated bat taken control.
