of the abuse of which shippers
have been sufferers during the past
ai:d which should have been reme
died by tbe general transportation
companies have gone so far without
t at remedy tbat legislatures are
air ady raking ttu-m up for consid

tion for tbeir e adication has al
ready been adopted. Tbe national
coneie-s will, without doubt, have
tnsfjy of tbeaa up for discussion at
it coming session. The railway
companies mar not all have bsen
guilty 01 the corrupt practices mm
which tbev are charged today oy
the people? who use their lines- but
a greet many ot them have, or mere
would be no such general demand
for tbe legislation. But the abuses
on the branch lines have as yet had
as little attention at the bands of
our legislatures or congress. The
road laws of the past have been
adopted without any well developed
idea as to what their purpose was
nor what they propose to accom
olish. In this matter the stock
holders in the branch transports
tion routes, in the wagon roads, the
shippers themselves, are the ones
to blame. Tbey demand cheaper
rates on the main line which today
charges them on an average in the
6tates of tbe west ten and nve-hnn-
dredths mills per ton per mile, but
make little comglamt of their own
branches on which they pay an av
erage of one hundred and fifty mills
per ton per mile. lhen again on
the main line the rates have been
fcteadily reduced, they having been
of "debt" and their fear is well
founded in most instances, but in
debtedness contracted for tbe pur
pose or Improvirg condition?, and j
which will pay itself out in absolute 1
dividends to the man or communi
ty tbat contracts tbe debt is a dif
ferent matter from tbe ordinary
form of indebtedness. It would be
better, it is true, if the money had
been earned before it were spent, but
as this is not the ca-e and its ex
penditure will aid the districts to;
earn the money, it would seem that
the system of bonding tbe distr'Pbts
affected would be one worth consid
ers g. It is tbis improvement in
its system that makes it possible
for the railway to carry for many
miles what the farmer fiods him-elf
unable to transport for a few milee
in bis farm wagon for the same cost.
The railway keeps few dead horses
and a lot of good milch cows. Let
the farmer and th9 producer and
shipper in general learn from the
common carrier; let him who uses
the country road es bis particular
highway hew to the same line. Let
him remember tbat as a feeder to
tbe railway and other transporta
tion routes the country road Is a
branch of the great system, and let
him make it earn him something
nstead of permitting it to ever be a
drag and an added expense to him.
He should get from the wagon road
a larger dividend, or pay it a small
er assessment which is tbe same
thing. This he can only do by in
creasing its efficiency to do his work
cheaply and economically.

In the meantime, however, ' the
