trusts nor monopolies, and being under i familiar lamentations that the masse

control of interstate! ami state commis
sinus, it is the fault of the goveinini lit
il they are permitted to oppress Hie
people. They are, moreover, civili.ers
and empire builders, and Texas needs
more miles of them than does any
other state of the Union. The Central
West Texas C uumercial Club lias mt
slopped over in its 'suggestions and it
does not play, by design or ignorance,
into the hands of grasping interests.
They have stated their position in
the principles lis enunciated In the res
olutions passed, and these principles'
will stand the analysis at the hands of
the people of Texas, without regard to
section. And these clubs have li:cn
confirmed in the wisdom of their princi
ples and suggestions by stinio tilings
which have come to pass recently. Kor
instance, the railway commission has
ordered t he International & (3 rent
Northern Railway to buy sixty loco
motives which will cost f 14,000 each,
or a total of S40,000 ; 3,200 freight cars,
to cost $2, 720,000, and twvlve passen
ger coaches, 8!MI,0U0, or a grand total of
$:;,l5fi,000. Moreover, reporting on u
tour of inspection recently made over
tlie lines of tile International & Great
Northern Kail way, oue of the com
missioners gives it out as his -opinion
thatun investment of $5,000 per mile
would lie necessary to put that system,
track and roadbed in adequate condi
tion to transport its trallic.
This road lias approximately 1,000 1 j J,''" commati.
., . Saturday, t h
miles ot track ; llieretor, un ouuay oi
Si.),000,000 is imperative to put its track
in adequate condition. Add this sum
to the equipment demands already
mentioned, nnd tl.e road is expected
to inve-t S,lMt,0'.)0 before it is prepared
to satisfactorily serve the public. Now,
the railroad conii"is-ion, in its ollicinl
report, vulues Hie International A
Great Northern at $30,0110,000. Cer
tainly it is entitled to a fair rate of In
terest, on the investment, but the com
mission argues now that it should re
duce its passenger fares, aud then
expects it to invest nioie than eight
and one-half million dollars in equip
ment aud betterments, and at the same
time the commission whittling at its
passenger fares and freight rates, and
those in authority threatening to re
duce rules via the railway commission,
or by future legislative enactment.
To w hom can this line turn in hope ot
rescue from impoverishment or confis
cation, il not to the agricultural and
commercial masses, who know thai
thei'1 lelations to the railroads of the
country are those of mutual bench!
and dependence? You have been a
iu inm.l inntiaiier. irovernor. and are
supposed to be all adept at ligures.
Can you solve this simple problem in

policy of the State?
liy leaving the International & Great
Northern Hallway out of the contro
versy, as an individual property, let
us turn to another phase of the rail
road situation in Texas. Now the
