CEMENT MAN WANTS CEMENT ROADS
RAILROADS CAN'T "PASS IT ON'
There has just started a movement on the part of.
railroad employes for shorter hours and higher wages.
The railroads claim that to grant tne demands ot tne men
w ould cause a great amount of trouble and immense cost,
nn nf vvhiph would be rcaiTaneiner of division points.
They also claim that it would mean an increased cost off
operation amounting to more than $100,000,000 a year, j
The railroads would not have any trouble meeting!
iVuiir moil's dcnin nds were it not for the interstate com
merce act which does not permit them to raise rates with
out the consent of the commission. If it were not for this,
the roads could grant the demand and by increasing rates
pass the extra cost along to the patrons of the road and
eventually to the consumer.
The Oregon Voter always quick to catch the point
where a corporation is touched, puts it in a nut shell thus:
"Our complex and cumbersome system of railroad
regulation makes impossible quick readjustment of rates
to meet increase of wages such as is demanded by railway
The system is neither complex nor cumbersome, but
it is forceful. If it was not for this supervision the roads i
would simply advance rates and consequently let the pub-,
lie pay the increased wage granted by them. That is
what the voter intimates the roads would do, and it is i
Fortunately for the country and for the railroads too,
the era of "the public be damned," has passed. Unfortu-i
nately to effects of that period are still with us. During)
it, and up until recently, roads were capitalized at three!
or four times their cost of construction and rates were)
fixed to meet fair returns on these fictitious values. Even j
suppose the amount of water poured into the average j
railroad stock was only one-hall', its earnings would have,
to be largely increased to meet interest charges. A rate j
that would permit six per cent on the actual cost of the I
road would have to be much higher to meet the six per
cent on the water. In other words in order to allow the,
company to draw six per cent on its actual investment it j
would have to be permitted to draw 12 per cent on that j
If the original builders or exploiters of the roads still
owned the stock the matter could be easily adjusted, but
as we as a people have permitted these railroad exploitersi
to sell their watered stock to an innocent public, ourj
mouths are closed, and we must go on forever paying;
double interest on money invested in railroad shares. We(
must do this or throw the burden of our carelessness oiij
those who are blameless and who invested their 'money j
in good faith. j
The Voter seems to regret the good old days when a
railroad company could do as it pleased, and tell the pub
licwell, what Vanderbilt told it. It regrets also all other
things of this kind judging from its editorial in the March,
18th issue quoted above, and which it concludes thus: j
"Thus the public, as usual, in its attempt to rule
economic conditions, fails to achieve its main purpose and:
has to meet the high cost of bungling." I
Passing the blame up to the public for the criminal
acts of the railroad exploiters, is an evidence of supreme
nerve, to put it mildly, but it is the old railroad trick, and
one that has been played so otten, it is no longer euoeuve
Mr. Aman Moore, vice president and manager of the
cement plant at Oswego, is some booster for his goods.
Discussing the comparative value of cement and bitulithic
pavenfents he gives the fulness of praise to his own
product pretty strongly. He points out that "the oldest
constructed roads in the world were constructed by the
use of Puzzolana cement concrete binding of rocks to
gether, and have stood the wear for something over 2,000
years, although the quality of the cement was not one
hundredth part as good as the present modern Portland
cement of today."
Now if Mr. Aman Moore's argument and statements
are correct, then a road built of modern Portland cement
would last 200,000 years and still come up to its work
smiling. This ought to settle it, although he qualifies it
later by giving cement roads a life of seventy-three years,
hisstatement being based on the experience with cement
at Bellfontaine, Ohio, and the statement of Mr. Inskeep,
the city engineer of that city.
But if roads built with inferior cement lasted 2,000
years, and those built with modern cement were good
for only seventy-three years, why would not a road built
without either be the longer lived? The better the cement
the shorter the life of the road, the poorer the cement
the longer. Why not get perfection by using none?
While the press correspondents are keeping the wires
hot with slush from El Paso, San Antonio and other
points along the border, they are sending out little real
news for the very good reason there is none to send, but
they are there and have to earn their money or pretend
to. So far, according to General Funston's official state
ment, not a shot has been fired by Americans on Mexican
soil, since the affair of the Columbus raid. There is no
evidence that any of the Carranzistas have gone over to
Villa despite many rumors to that effect. In view of these
conditions it is best not to grow excited over any report
coming from the Mexican borders. Job said: "All men
are liars," and newspaper correspondents are real men.

We can stand for a good deal from the news boys on
the Mexican border, but when one of them hits the wires
with a story about the "heavy wagons rumbling through
the deep sands," the limit is passer. If the effete dudelet

lead pencil knew anything about wagons or sand, he
would know that the combinations can't rumble any more
than a Gila Monster can sing, a centipede dance, or an
