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.
