At the outset it must be understood
that of the 777,132 stockholders, own­
ing the railroads of the United States
702,433, or 00 per cent, live in the
North. East and West; while only
74,899, or 10 per cent, live in the
South. That section has been quite
as laggard in financing transporta­
KWii
tion as in recognition of human
justice.
Transportation is to the country
what the arteries are to the body—
It distributes the nation's production,
population and food and develops its
resources. But we asked: “What
connection have the colored people,
as a class, with this massive
dustry ?“
The 136,065 Negroes employed
the railroads in the United States
the answer. Of this number thus
employed are 2204 females, of whom
45 are flagwomen. There are also a
number of maids on the finest equip­
ped trains, while 2058 colored women
are classed as laborers, probably car
cleaners for the moot part. Among
the men there is naturally a greater
diversity of occupation. Of the 133,-
881 males employed in this branch of
industry, 95,921 are laborers; 20,201
are porters; «305 are firemen; 3502
are boiler washers and hostlers, and

WHAT WASHINGTON THINKS OF THE OREGON INCOME
TAX ACT
(Portion of editorial reprinted from the Tacoma, Washington, News-Tribune)
If Oregon enacts this law, a golden opportunity is provided for the State
of Washington, even though we are loath to take advantage of the folly
and misfortune of a neighbor. An Income tax law will put Oregon in the
same class as North Dakota and will make outside capital gun shy when it
comes to investing In her industries.
If Wsshington jnslntains its poise amid the flood of eeml-sociallitlc and
destructive legislation that is now proposed and rejects the income tax
measure, it will share with Southern California the Influx of capital to the
coast. Let it join Oregon in such a law and the Pacific Northwest auto­
matically will sign an industrial suicide pact.
As a sample of how this Income tax talk affects Eastern capital, Incidents
may be cited regarding a well-known Tacoma concern. This company had
made plana to double its capacity this year, adding many more employes
to its staff when Eastern Investors, who were to finance the improvement
learned of the proposed Income tax law they promptly withdrew their cap­
ital and took it to more favored fields.
Tacoma will lose a acore or more of families which it would have had
if the proposed addition had been made.
