McCarter, Ogdensburg • ADVERTISE IN THE MADRID HERALD Increase of Transportation Facilities Necessary to Secure Relief From High Co6t of Living May Thus Be Provided For by the Railroads. WaslMng'ton, Nov. 28.—A new policy of government raflroad regulation, based on constructive principles of •helpfulness and encouragement instead of upon principles of repression and punishment, was urged by Alfred P. Thorn, counsel for the Railway Execu- tives' Advisory Committee, the first witness on behalf of the railroads he- fore the Newlands Joint Committee on Interstate Commerce, whirh has insti- tuted a general inquiry into the prob- lems of railroad regulation. \It is proposed hy the joint resolu- tion of Congress,\ said Mr. Thom, \to go into a comprehensive study of the Whole subject of transportation, to make a new assessment, after 29 years of experiment, of its history, its pres- 'eat conditions and its future needs. The raih .ads accept the view that reg- ulation is a permanent and enduring part of government in America and that the first duty of the carriers is to the public. That dnty is to afford reasonable facilities on reasonable terms and at reasonable rates, and this must be done before any private inter- ests can be considered.\ Certainty, Safety -and Sufficiency. Mr. Thom contended that the real in- terest of the public Is in being assured •of certainty, safety and sufficiency of transportation facilities, rather than in rates. The first consideration of the public is to obtain transportation facili- ties. What the cost is, is in reality a j second consideration, be said. Mr. Thom proposed an Increase of ] transportation facilities as a method of securing relief from the high cost of living. \There have been less than 1,000 miles of new railroad construct- ed in the United States during the past year,\ he said, \less than in any year since 1848, except the period of the Civil War, and yet the cost of living Is dally advancing owing to a shortage of supplies which might be remedied \by securing access to new areas of pro- duction. Credit Muit Be Improved. \This leads to the consideration as to whether Tailroad credit is as good as the public interest requires. It is Im- possible for railroads to earn enough to supply the necessary new facilities from current revenue. They must be provided from credit Investors can- not be coerced, but must be attracted.\ Among the. conditions affecting rail- road credit which deter Investors he mentioned the following' \First Railroad revenues are not •controlled by investors, but are fixed •and limited by governmental authority •and not by one but by several govern- mental authorities, which do not recog- nize responsibility for assured results to Investors and are uncoordinated. '\Second Hailroads cannot control and the government cannot and does not limit the expense account. \Third The present system of regu- lation is based on a policy of regulation and correction and not on a policy of helpfulness and encouragement. \Fourth The outstanding obligations af the railroads have already exceeded the financial rule of safety ana involve a disproportionate amount or obliga- tions bearing fixed charges. \Fifth The investor must accept a subordinate obligation or security with no assurance of a surplus of earnings to support it. \Sixth Other competitive Hues of in- vestment present superior attractions. \Seventh The railroad business Is largely Controlled by political Instead of business considerations. Look Forward, Not Back. \We may debate about what has cuused the present conditions,\ said Mr. Thom, \but we cannot debate about what the people need. The President has taken the view that we must look forward in this matter and 'make a fresh assessment of circumstances' In order to deal helpfully and intelligent- ly with the problem. Abuses *re no more prevalent in the railroad busi- ness today than In any other business humanely conducted. The great ques- tion now is whether the existing sys- tem of regulation gives the public re- liable assurance of sufficient present and future railroad facilities. ''Those who oppose any change must make their appeal on the ground that the present systems assure the public of the continued adequacy of trans- portation facilities. If they do not, no argument based on the desirability of the present dual system of regulation will be accepted by public judgment The question of 'states' rights' Is not Involved.

Indeed, one might say they have more and more reason. The fathers of New England hem- med in between a wilderness and the sea, watched their doubtful crops in anxious memories of other years of famine. When they found that once more there was fish enough and pork enough and corn and beans and pump- ; kins and squashes and turnips enough to carry them through the winter they met to thank God, knowing full well how many hazards they had passed through, for those days as compared with today were days of pinching pov- erty. The New England historian, Dr. Palfrey, says, with a certain dryness, Which shows probably some personal preferences, \Bailed beans point to the j time when it was desirable to make the most of the commonest vegetable by flavoring it with the flesh of the commonest animal.\ j All this Is happily changed. For the world, indeed, the old peril of famine is well nigh forgotten. And why? The American of today gives thanks that famine is well nigh Impossible. ] First of all, he remembers that he Is no longer dependent on the crops of a I few hundred square miles or the fish- | ing voyage of a single summer. j Thanks to the providence of God as i it has worked in history and to the | work of brave men who believed they ; were children of God, the petty colo- j nies which were thus described are now one nation. Of that nation the meanest citizen, the most foolish, the weakest and the poorest, has every j right and privilege before the law I which belongs to the strongest, the richest and the wisest, though he were born in the purple of luxury. To the widow's son of the poorest citizen of that nation, then, there will come his daily bread in answer to his daily prayer, though it come from the mill- ing of California wheat or he the salmon caught at the falls of the Spo- fcane, without let or hindrance from any power of earth. If there is food in plenty In one region, as by the fall of an avalanche down a mountain, ft will certainly seek consumption in an- other region. And this the American boy and girl owe to the good Provi- dence and to the brave men who made this country one and have kept it one. It is too much the blindness of our time to speak as if such a simple busi- ness as daily food came to us as a mat- ter of course. There is, Indeed, a care- less habit In which Americans often speak, as if, because they are Amer- icans, they have everything without so much as asking for It. Fourth of July orators and street corner braggarts alike talk of the natural products of {this country almost in the tone of the emigrants who expect to pick up a doubloon npon the sidewalk. One is tempted to ask such braggarts why the country did not produce such wealth 100 years ugo or 200 years ago. Why was Dakota then a desert? Why were the hills of Alabama only a hid- ing place for a few thousand Creek Indians? Why did they not forge the Iron under their feet? Why did not the Iroquois in western New York pick from their trees the peaches and the pears such as have been growing there this autumn? The answer is this: All the wealth of America comes to her from the work of her men and women. The victory which yields it is their victory. It is the victory of spirit conquering mutter. It comes in the daily miracle of dally life, where children of God, led by God, taught by God, alive In his life and fellow workmen with him, carry out his designs and subdue the earth. It is neither sensible nor grate- ful to speak of teeming granaries, of increasing trade, of new mines, of oB, of iron or of gas as if these things were wealth in themselves. They are only Wealth when man strikes the rock and its waters flow. And this man must be not the savage man Who cares only for his own personal appetite. It must be man, the child of God, seeking a fu- ture better than today, determined to bring in a nobler age than that which he lives in. o-o oooooooooooooooooo oo ooo.o It !• ju»t and proper that all people should oormider the oouroe from whence .our happl- .nnis has come and (at apart • day on 'Whloh to return thank* unto God for the goodness with Which our oountry ha» been blo»6ed, oooooooooooooooooooooooooo Aft»r tho Dinner, The after dinner amusements can he of the Bjiortlve kind, suitable to the day.
