A government, ownership of rail
roads would possess many features
of merit and advantage, and in a
country like England, where gov
ernment administration is free from
political corruption and favoritism,
there are good reasons why it should
be brought about. But it would
more than double the duties of
government, largety exaggerate the
influence and authority of the
central power and of the dominant
part, and these considerations will,
for a long time to come, forbid even
the favorable entertainment of it in
the United States. The best we
can hope to do is to require that the
owners of railroads shall exhibit a
fair regard for the public interest,
and place the charges on them at
the lowest rates consistent with the
task or earning a moderate profit on
their actual un watered cost, St.

caught a fine lot of cattish the night
before, all hands went down to the
river to take a swim with the
understanding that they should
have a catfish dinner at the sawmill.
About one o'clock a cloud loomed
up in the northwest, and when
those discouraged farmers went
home they had to swim from one to
