THE MOST DIFFICULT PROBLEM.
The president siys of the rail
way: "Its rates should be just
and open to all." That they
n:e not is the chief cause of com -
plaint, the main provocative of
popular anti-railroad sentiment.
Instead of making just rates it is
more frequently the practice of
the railway companies to tax
their traffic all it will bear. To
this end all competition is de
stroyed either by mutual agree
ment between companies or by
one acquiring control of all com
peting lines. This is done by
leasing for a term, as for ninety
nine years or by forming a com
"bination, as the Pennsylvania
Company and the Northern Se
curities Company. These ac
quire control of railway stocks,
and construct, buy, lease and
nnerate. all the means of trans
portation in large areas of terri
tory. They not oniy control
interstate but no small part of
our foreign commerce, and hav
ing destroyed and made competi
tion impossible establish such
rates as they choose. Stock
holders operating mines, mills
and factories are given special
rates, rebates, drawbacks and
premiums which enable them to
reach and to control markets
from which smaller operators are
oracticallv excluded. A car
famine" rarely touches the stock
holding shipper.
To control these things is an
exceedingly difficult matter,
Such is human cupidity and sel
fishness'that there is a continual
effort to avoid just restraint
States have changed their con
stitutions, passed stringent laws
and adopted many devices to
compel these transportation com
panies to make just rates open to
all. So far the companies have
been able, for the greater part, to
obstruct, evade and nullify these
efforts to control them.
They are public servants and
must be under the direction and
supervision of the people so far,
and only so far as may be neces
. sary to compel them justly and
equitably to perform their public
functions. "The several states
and the federal government will
put forth more intelligent and
earnest efforts than any yet made
to this end. No wrong will be
done to anv of them, but such
measures of regulation and con
trol will be devised and enforced
as will protect the people and
quiet public apprehension. It is
folly to wait until yet greater
distrust is aroused. Common
prudence requires that the rights
and interests of the people be
effectually safe-guarded. Instru
mentalities must be found, will
be found to compel these corpor
ations to be just to all, and to
render it impossible for any of
them to batten on the necessities
of the public.
When this is done the railways
should be permitted to work on
their own proper lines serving
all the people as public servants
should and earning legitimate
dividends on the capital they
have invested.
This is, without doubt, the
most perplexing and difficult
problem before the present con
gress. It is fortunate the repub
lican party has it to solve. It is
a guarantee that it will be solved
justly, courageously and satis
factorily. Nothing will be bor
rowed nor appropriated from the
purposes of any other party
but the work will be done
on Jurely republican lines and
will eventuate as republican
policies always do, in doing "the
greatest good to the greatest num
ber." Congress is fully advised
. of the public feeling on this sub
ject and we are satisfied it will
meet just public requirements.
Meanwhile let no socialist,
nor populist dream of any sort of
aid and comtort from republicans,
for we deal with all subjects
after our own methods.
HOMER'S ILIAD.
Book I A Literal Translation by C.
MacLean, Ph. D.
Vy. 188-222. Intervention of Athene.
Thus he spoke. Then grief came upon
tb.9 son of Peleus, and his heart within
bis shaggy breast hesitated between two
courses: Whether drawing his sword
quickly from his thigh he should arouse
them from their seats (more lit., should
cause them to start up), while he him
self slew the son of Atreus, or repress his
anger and restrain his passioa . While
he was revolving this in his heart and
soul, aad was beginning to draw his
broad sword from its scabbard, then
Athene came from heaven ; for the god
dess, the white-armed Hera, loving and
Cherishing both sides alike in her mind,
tent her forth. She both stood liehind
Mm and held tbe son of Peleos by bis
golden hair, appearing to liira alone ; and
no one of the others saw her. Then
Achilles was amazed at being thus
seized, and he turned around and im
mediately recognized Pallas Athene; bat
terribly did her eyes gleam. And he
lifted up his voice and addressed to
her tinned words: ''What npw! Why
iirt thou come, O daughter of the Argis-
In-aring Ze is? Is it that thott mayst be
hold the inso'ence of Agamemnon, the
son of At runs? But I will speak out,
and this also will come to pass, I think :
By reason of his insolent behav.or be
will quickly some day lose his life."
Then the gxLIesa, the fierce-eyed
Athene, answered him back: .
"I came from heaven to cause thee
to cease this rage of thine, if, indeed,
thou canst be prevailed upon. ' For the
goddess, the white-armed Hera, loving
and cherishing you both alike in her
strife, and do not continue to draw the
sword with thy hand. Nevertheless,
with words reproach him as there shall
be opportunity. For thus I declare, and
this also will b3 a thin accomplished i.
e., this also will be done : Some day
there will be at thy disposal, on account
of the insolence of this day, even three
times as many princely gifts For what
these were, see Book 9, at 1211. But
do thou check thyself, and obey us."
Then Achilles, swift as to his feet, an
swering her, said ;
"It is, indeed, meet, O goddess, to ob
serve the command of you two, however
much one is enraged at heart, for so it is
better. If anyone obeys the gods, him
self they will surely hear" See St, John,
9:31 "If any man be a worshipper of
God, and doeih his will, him he hear-
eth"l.
He spoke and ou the silver hilt he kept
a heavy hand, and pushed back into its
scabbard the broadsword, and did not
disobey the command of Athene. Then
she was goue to Olympus, into the man
sions of the Aegis-bearing Zens, into
the midst of the rest of the divinities.
