The Government Ownership of Railroads
By Judge VanWaggenen of Iowa,
I was told by & prorilinent man in
Jowa, immediately alter my Water
loo speech, that the idea of govern
jnent ownership of railroad woul4
be strong in t,Ue cities, but that it
' would not meet with savor among the
farmers; --It;therefQrG,give6 joiqi 'great
' ueal Jf .satfef action G. find ihefirst,
meeting- called-to"&xjonsiderthe seue
originating,among .the.f armers .and to
address Hhis eetinlargely ifcom-
posed of that class of our citizens. It
was the thought of ttiis .man that the
farmers would loolc Upon the purchase
of tho railroads as entailing a debt,
,whereas it -would really he the pur
rt.oca of a viiiufilila asset, of vast
n inironcp in viilule. It had
.neenhdasmow, my icmviction that
ithev-.sentiment ls-as -4wb -w-itronger,
among the rmers -tnan
amongatiy - otherclass - of people. i
shall therefore proceed this evening to
discuss the question of government
ownership of the railroads, not partic
ularly from the standpoint of the far
mer, but from the standpoint of all
the people of the country. I shall not
be able to enter into any comprehen
sive review of the whole subject for
it would take more time than I can
consume this evening to demonstrate
the benefits of government .ownership
while several evenings would be nec
essary tofiilly"discu8 the many evils.
which It -would--elimrnate irom lour
politics,' from the 'riadminfestration of,
government- and -from the commercial
lifemnd imlnstrjrof -our people.-. Ishall
content myself for tnis occasion with
attempting to present as clearly as
possible the wonderful growth of the
sentiment as indicated by the rapidity
with which the pBlicy is Deing univer
sally adopted by the nations of the
world and the unform success with
which the acquisition of the railroad
has been attended. I am not certain
that these facts are not a complete
answer to .all the objections to govern
ment ownership of railroads, which
havo .been orxan bo :made. If three
