Tito following InterotliiK nrtlrlc
ni written by J. . Miller, local
nKent fur tho Southern Pacific, who
Ims iim.lo n deep study of nit matter
lierbUnlng to transportatien:
Tho ltoman Empire reallicd the
lmportanco of adoquato transporta
tion facilities and mado provision to
moot their demands. A prlnclplo fca
turo In tholr system was to construct
and maintain highways leading to the
city of Rome nnd Jealousy guarded
tholr every lntorcst wheroby n
mighty emplro was bulldcd nnd main
tained for several centuries leading
tho worlds' commerce. Each genera
tion has been confronted with tran
sportation problems from tho Im
memorial as is tho present situation
complicated with Its Intrlcato diverg
Tho steam railroad solved tho
problem to nil mankind for n con
siderable tlmo. Capital was Interest
ed In tho development and encourag
ed to Invest. Large tract of tcrrltorj
was oponcd up to agricultural pur
suits. Tho forest penetrated with a
leading artcrle to tho market. Man
kind prospered and forged uhcad.
Tho countrjs' natural resources were
now available to the uso of humanity.
With tho natural human Instinct
to grasp and master tho cluslvo un
known, mankind dovolopcd tho automobile-
which wo nil accept as
among tho leading gifts to civiliza
tion. It is lndlspcnslblo to society and
we have no dcslro whatever to retard
Its progress nor condemn its exist
ence. Hut let us summarlzo briefly
tho resultant consequence. Society
becamo Intoxicated with enthusiasm
in Its mad pursuit of pfcasuro and
profit. Expcnstvo highways were con
structed paralleling to a very great
extent the rails of the common car
rier who weathered tbo pioneering In
developing tho resources of mountain
The nuto truck then made Its ad
vent In commercial enterprise. First
as a means of rapid delivery of goods
within the cltys' boundary lines. Later
to tho farm and forest, gradually en
gaging In the business of a common
currier, but without tho regulation
that Is imposod upon tho largo trunk
lines who must bear tho burden of
maintaining tho bulwark of our com
mercial Intercourse with the world.
Tho auto truck is now In cvory
stato In tho union operating over
these public highways that are kept
up by taxation of which a generous
portion of the burden being placed
upon tho railroads. These trucks are
not controlled by the Public Utilities
Commissions In all states, nor do
they come under the regulation of
tho Intcrstato Commorco Commission
who are emphatically dictating the
policies of tho railroads. Tho rail
roads n ro obliged to purchase a fran
chise build and mnlntaln a road bed,
furnish sufficient equipment, at an
cxhorbltant prlco, and this same
equipment cannot be utilized at a
profit during tho cntlro season.
fren tho harvest has moved
thoso high priced cars and locomo
tives nro sidetracked to deteriorate
until such time as they can bo put
back In sorvlce. Tho Interest on
moneys Invested howover goes right
along and when it is reallred that
box cars, or us a matter of fact any
u.iuik bios wm depreciate more
rapidly than the samo amount of
capital Invested in a stationery struc-
luro some Idea of tho tremendous
ovorhoad that Is ever facing the
railroad will be appreciated.
Lot us view tho local situation,
which to many of us Is more compre
hensive, as we nro not In a position
to discuss the national question of
nuto truck transportation. Let us
take Just one raljroad. The Southern
Pacific paid the state of Oregon In
1920 about 91,110.000 taxes. Klam
nth County receiving about 134,979.
Klamath Falls 25 years ago had a
population of n few hundred, today
It Is recognized as ono of the beat
little cities In tho west with a popu
lation of some 8000 people The

maintaining families. Tho pay roll
being nround $125,000 per year. This
together with tho taxes paid will ag
gregate better than $160,000 por an
num to Klamath Falls.
This is Just one small Item among
tho many advantages that nro reck
oned as assets to this community. It
might be said that the railroad Is
getting paid for Its service. True, oth
erwise operation could not continue.
Tbo overhead of a railroad must con
tinue wnemcr us earning powor
keeps up or not. During tho summer
season the auto trucks opratcd be
tween Ashland & Medford and Klam
ath Falls taking what they cared to
carry. This merchandise rightfully
belonged to tho Southern Pacific aa
they had dally service and operated
on a schedule. Tho auto trucks dis
continued operation Immediately
when tho weather becamo stormy
leaving the railroad to battlo with
tho elements and give us tho service
wo need until summer cornea and the
sun shines again. Then tho auto
truck will bo In ovidence again but
only during favorablo weather.
The Southern Pacific paid for Iojs
and damage during tho past year
over $2,000,000 dollars which we
may accept as a criterion of Its de
sire to be fair. And demands that Its
employes bo courteous and thought
ful of tho welfare of all patrons.
Oregon Is a wondorful state and
her resources arc largely undevelop
ed. She Is demanding highways,
which wo believe sho Is rightfully en
titled to. These highways are being
capitalized as an attraction to the
tourist travel. The maintenance will
be nominal after they are once con
structed. It might be well for un to
look Into the auto truck transporta
tion along his specific line, it i.
stated that the maintenance cost of
state highways In New England ad-'
uuicu uura iivu a mile to 11,500 a
mile alnco motor vehicles cams Into
goneral use. This Is only a quotation
nnd It may bo greater or smaller In
various sections of tho country. Wr
do know that the nuto truck destroys
the road and that It does not keep up
the overhead carried by a railroad.
Anyone desiring to start an auto
truck can with a few dollars and n
little credit Procure a truck, mako
monthly payments and operate while
tho traffic Is satisfactory discontinu
ing when he gots ready. This the
railroad cannot do. The railroad must
n nunmises, construct roads, pur
chase equipment, assume the llablll-
ties placed upon them by tlie Public
Commissions, obtain permission to
start operating on a schedule and
then maintain that samo schedule
nnd It It is desired to discontinue
oporatlon permission must first be
authorized by tho coironlnrton.
It would seem to mo that co-ope
ration and not competition In this In
stance would result more advantage
ously to all concerned. In the public
demand auto truck service some sys
tem wheroby the truck operator
would be assessed for the uso of the
highway, and Its upkeep should be
adopted at once. This seems to be
among tho foremost subjects demand
ing public attention at the present
time and the quicker It Is adjusted
the sooner your railroads win h.

The Big Men who build the great cities, erect the Towering
Bridges over roaring floods in sky-clasping canyons and tame
the flaming forces of Nature to serve the sons of mon are of the
type of "The Grouch" portrayed by
WM. S. HART
From the Brainstuff that dreams are made of he converted
the city of "Broken Hopes" into the city of "Golden Hopes'
using six-shooters as his vanguard, Decency as his' rear guard,
Love as his Quartermaster and "Smile" as his battlecry. A truly
marvelous characterization by a genius who touches the highest
peaks of screen artistry. ,
