Collier's Weekly : Against railroads
a wide variety of complaints have
been made and proved during the pns
few years. Exacting nn unreasonable
and excessive passenger rate Is nbou
the only wrong they could have done
which they have not been widely am
clamorously charged with doing. O
those who have brought about a two
cent faro law In various states , many
were politicians hurt in a tender spo
by the abolition of passes ; many more
were demagogues to whom a popnln
passion Is capital ; the ones who must
bo credited with sincerity c.nn hardly
have had any motive more Intelligent
than the principle that a lick against
the rallroadn is never amiss. It is
true this statute will not bo hurtful
to the railroads in proportion to their
uproar , for the economic law of in
creased consumption following a drop
in price must Imvo Its effect ; but this
argument cut no figure In the dobates.
It wns vindictive legislation , not found
ed on any Intelligent adaptation of
statutory remedy for corporation
wrong. In just twelve legislatures
this law was passed ; of the twelve
governors to whom it came for
signature , but ono had the courage to
veto it. Governor Hughes had already
Initiated and forced through nn un
willing legislature a "public utilities"
bill which accomplishes with intelli
gence nnd reason far more curing of
railroad wrongs than the two-cent faro
bill. Whatever place Governor Hughes
has had in the consideration of pres
idential possibilities must bo made
larger by the courage and evenhanded
ed Justice of this veto ; and the prin
ciple expressed In this passage from
his veto message : "In dealing with
these matters , democracy must demon
strate its capacity to act upon delibe
ration aud to deal Justly. "
