rt! several times isactua', cus. Thus
jlte Farmers' Alliance" of Minnesota
iias submitted a tk;cai,alion to the rail
j'oad commissioners making the jxiint
tliat, as the average cost of single track
railroads in the fciate does not exceed
J20,O0Q a mile, hence rates for fieirht
tind passengers should cover only a, reas
onable interest of the actual cost, tofi?t li

hiat there should be no discrimination
in railroad fates, in favor of large cities
and against small places; also that the
shipper must have the right to choose
jiis market and route to market, without
fjie arbitrary dictation of any railroad
jomiiany. The farmers recognize the
great value of railroads, and are willing
o assist in. earning a fair rate of interest
pn capital actually invested. They do
object to anv system of railway tariff
based on an attempt to earn di videos on
