was not an altogether unexpected
move, since his oldest sister, Cornel

that State many years. At first a con

which the people can obtain relief
from a kind of " monopoly that la not ,
only a great tax to the masses, bot an ;
insidious oorrutitor to popular gov

as a measure of eelt defense. It le
poeaible for a corporation engaged lo
public eervloe to keep Ite charges
within reasonable bounds to refrain
from attempts to Influence legisla
