Dickinson Says Panama Road
Should Run in Interest of
Railroads, Not Those
of the People.
ItJnlttd I'rtis Leaied Wlre.l

ing to tho statements of Bernard
Uaker, published In tho Call today,
Prosldent Taft nnd Secretary of War
Dickinson are nt outs regarding tho
freight tariffs to bo charged on tho
Panama rnllroad and tho mannor in
which the road Is to bo run.
According to Baker, who was a
former commissioner appointed by
the president to Invcstlgnto transpor
tation conditions on tho Isthmus, Taft
Is In favor of tho federal government
operating the fanama rnllroad In
conjunction with privately owned
steamship lines regnrdless of tho ef
fect It will have on transcontinental
railroads.
Dlcklntson, so Bnker stntcd, holds
the opinion that tho railway ncross
tne isthmus should not compoto with
tho ovorland lines. Baker quoted
from a letter by William Whcolor of
ban Franolsco, who formerly Was as
sistant secretary of commorce nnd
labor, which said:
"President Tnft expressed hlmsolf
as heartily in favor of tho govern
ment oporntlng tho Panama rnllroud
lu connection with the prlvntoly own
ed steamship lines, nnd to uso his
own phrnso, 'regardless of what ef
fect such operation might havo upon
transcontinental railways.'
"On May 1," said Baker, "I mot
Hon. Jncob Dickinson. Ho stated
mat he thought the govornmont had
no right to use the Panama rnllroad
In competition with transcontinental
railroads, nnd furthor, that ho
.thought no secretary of war would
.have tho right to do it, and that it
should only he done by congress."
