Leslie Carter has recently nd ha Brook Mrs ing upou the question which we present as a strong argument for the establish ment of Railroad Commission. June 18, 1890. Hon. T. J. Brown, Sherman, Texas. Dear Sir: Iu reply to yours of the 3d inst.. asking to be m formed in referenco to the woi kings, ef fects, influences, etc , etc., of the rail road commission in this btate, I give you the following statement of fact?, withouc detail or elaboration. The railroad commission of this State . was organized October 15 h, 1879. Its ned notoriety as an aciress, uu i nnnal tn th Htt w WO.OOO: 3.- they look tor advantageous sales and large profits, this state of nff lirs causes an irrosislable demand by the holders o the stocks upou the officers who are managiug the roads for favorable reports and large dividends, which can only be given by exacting such high rates of the patrons of me roads and the country through which they pass as to strip ev ery indnstry and every iuterest that the road may touch of all prohts, with most disastrous results to the country and to the people A railroad commission, clothed with proper authority, could prevent all thi. jai now Uiegomeaout as a star in urou- 50Q f this gum ine appropriated to ;h pat,hiiahm6ni. nf rat that, wnnid lyn in the play "An Ugly Duckling." each of three commissioners, $,1500 to a b8 just to the country and to the roads secretary, and $1,000 to advertiging,pub hshing and office expenses A very laro reduction in the charges made by lailroads for freights and pas- srnger Das been made since the organ ization of the commission in this btate. To show this reduction I state that in lb79 the charge made for the transpor tation of pas-engers was five cents per mile, while the rate now cnargfd is thre cents per mile, and to show it in freights I submit the following table of rates iu in 1879 and in 1890, taking the Savant ah division of the Central railroad as an exaffipie. Kate charged by the Central Railroad Com pany per 100 pound: Article. Cotton. Hrtmn months before she opened in Brooklyn she saw a crayon portrait cf MiNNiH Palmer displayed for advertis ing purposes. She immediately came to the conclusion that she would shice more resplendent if she could have a potrait of herstlf exhibited. She has a manager all actresses hav Tbeir manager was instructed to find out an artist and make a bargain with him. The artist was found by name Phelps. He had some personal ' sittings" with Mrs Carter at her rooms where he studied her in various sorts of gowns and poses and jotted down the color of her eyes, her measurements and to on. He is not an artist himself, but with this informations and a photo graph and lock of hair he employed an Jj?0?' artist to paint the pastel. In making Grain the contract she specified that the plctnre was to bo made as much prettier than she waa as possible. The picture was finished. It was sent to her. hbe became angry called it a botch and said she wouldn't pay for it. The artist brought snit for the amount, and the case is now in court. Mr. Caster was put on the stand. The cross-examination was not devoid of humor. The following is interesting: ' 'Did you tell him to make the picture as handsome as possible?" the artist's lawyer asked. "Yes." was the unruffled answer, "I UV,1 A!

The stimulus that such a favorable rate would give to all pursuits and all industries would in re turn pay the roads, by reason of in creased travel and a larper tonnage, more than they now mike by the high rates upon their light travel and "small tonnage. Iu conclusion, permit me to state that I do noc wish to 03 misunderstood as at tributing all the prosperity of Georgia, and especially of her railroad interests, to the fact that that she has a railroad commission. Georgia feels the impulse towards pro gress and development which stirs in al! her sistter Srtes, and is reaping some of the general benefits of the gen eral prosperity of the times. But I do honestly believe that the railroad com has been a great factor iu hor prosper ity, and shall be glad to know that the tate of Texas has organized a commis sion with the proper powers, and has placed the administration of those pow ers in proper hands.
