'N SOME features of the report of
the Interstate commerce com
mission given out Saturday
there Is an extraordinary slml
laxity to the arguments which the
people of Oregon hare been urging
persistently for several years past
In particular, we call attention to the
commission's strictures upon rail
roads which use their surplus fund
and credit, not for the development
of the territory through which the
road runs, but for the purchase ot
stocks and bonds In Wall street. Two
years ago the chamber of commerce
of this city directed attention to the
Ylclousness of this practice, which
was being followed by the 0. R. &
N. Co., to the detriment of the state,
and the topic has been commented
upon frequently since that time, both
' by committees of our local commer
cial organizations and by the public
press. The people of Oregon have
no disposition to wage war upon the
O. R. & N. or any other railroad, but
they da resent and protest against
the policy of piling up a huge sur
plus, through exorbitant rates, and
then using that surplus, not for the
development of the territory from
which the money Is1 drawn, but for
J the purchase Of stock in the New
York Central or some other road ab
solutely remote from this state. The
farmer who ships his wheat to the
seaboard Is willing to pay a fair
price for the haul and does not be
grudge the railroad its legitimate
profit, but he Is not willing to put
up more money for ihe sole purpose
of helping to margin Mr. Harrlman's
stock gambling transactions. The
Journal commented recently upon
some of the uses which' have been
made of the huge surplus accumu
lated by the 0. R. ft N., laying stress
particularly upon the fact that prac
tically all of this surplus has been
used In ways that are of absolutely
so benefit to the people of this state.
Furthermore, there is the glaring
fact that interior Oregon is still a
Tirgln wilderness, so far as railroad
development is concerned, and this
despite the repeated promises of the
Harrlman management to build ex
tensions and new roads. It Is plain
that the conclusions of the interstate
commerce commission were largely
Influenced by a study of conditions
In this state, and this fact affords
hope of the relief which the people
of Oregon have long sought for In
vain. '
