fact, the increased business should work
a reduction in the cost of transporta

3. To enable these parties to cover
up their schemes and create a public
sentiment favorable to themselves, they
subsidize the venal press, and send
their emmissaries among the people,
for the purpose of securing the elec

The laws under which these corpora

issued shall bo paid up in full, and all
the money received for the sumo lie
to the construction of their works. To
insure obedience to these requirements
the people should pass a law couipell
ing each railroad company to furnish
a detailed statement, under oath, of the
actual cost of its works; and that iU
stock issue shall be con6ned to the
amount so reported, on which stock
holders shall be entitled to a dividend
not to exceed the sum of ten per cent
per annum making a forfeiture of
franchise the penalty for violation of
