GOVERNMENT RATE MAKING
In the North American Re
view for March President Wil
cox, of the Delaware & Hudson,
discusses what he is pleased to
consider " The Dangers of Gov
ernment Rate Making," and
portray the dangere as the
railways see them in colors that
might-be alarming if the colors
were true. But Preaidant Will,
cox proceeds upon false premises,
and it is, therefore, of little con
sequence what his conclusions
may be. His opening sentence
is: "The incessaut and at times
come with the expectation of
making a home somewhere iu
the great northwest. It all looks
good to them and they will stop
one place just as well aa another,
with the exception that they
have bought their passage to
the terminals such as Portland,
Spokane and Seattle. But they
have atop-over privileges west of
Now it does look possible that
some arrangement could be made
whereby a great many of these
people could be induced to atop
over and look at this valley.
While we know we have one ol
the beat counties in the state,
the great majority of these borne
seekers do not even know there
is a Union county.
If these people could be met on
the trains and our conditions
explained, many would stopover
and that is all we ask. We
would not only be helping the
homeseeker but ourselves.

The demand for additional
powers has not come from the
Interstate Commerce Commiss
ion, but from the shippers and
from the receivers of freight and
from the general public The
merits of that demand have been
fullv aonreciated by the Presi
dent. His message was not for
the purpose of dignifying the
commission nor its alleged de
mands, but for the purpose of
urging Congress to the enact
ment of measures for relief from
an arbitrary and uncontrolled
system, adopted and enforced by
the railways without adequate
measures of redress for the
public . There is a difference
which President Willcox could,
but will not, appreciate.
