THE RELATION OF RAILROAD
RATES TO GENERAL
To the Business Man: No mat
ter how objectionable an advance in
freight rates may be to us personally.
we must recognize that an improve
ment in general business is dependent
on a betterment of operating and
financial conditions of the railroads.
That the operating results are most
unsatisfactory is readily seen by
the latest INTER-STATE COMMERCE
COMMISSION reports, which show
that for the nine months ended April
1st, 1910, eleven railroad systems, all
West and North of a line drawn from
Chicago to St. Louis, compared with
the same roads for the same period in
the previous year, had their gross
earnings Increased about $50,000,000.00.
while their net earnings showed a de
crease of $3,500,000.00. and for the
month of March, on the same compari
son, they show an increase of $7,000.
000.00 In gross and a decrease of
$905,000.00 in net earnings.
Attention is called to the fact that
the wage increases, (except a small
amount.) were not in force during this
period, and from now on these will
greatly Increase the operating cost.
These same railroads had their taxes
Increased over the previous j-ear
$2,500,000.00. or 14 and have to pay
higher rates of interest on their loans.
These roads covering the most pros
perous part of the country may be con
sidered representative of general rail
During the past throe years of poor
business, railroad expenditures for
maintalnance wore necessarily at ihe
lowest point, and in consequence their
motive power equipment and tracks
now demand a greater proportion of
operating expense. No provision has
been or is being made for the growing
"emands of the country, and as trans
portation is the backbone of business.
Its weakness or inelliciency cripples
every other condition: because all prod
ucts are valuable in the ratio with
which thc-ir accessibility to the con
It Is most important to the shipper,
that railroads at all times are fully
equipped to take care of an increase of
his business. The first eight months of
1907 demonstrated that the railroads
could not handle the business then of
fered with any degree of satislaction.
The financial conditions since have not
permitted them to even maintain their
then position. If the then volume of
business were to come back supple
mented by the three years growth of
the country in the interval, transporta
tion would be paralyzed; and what
would that cost the shipper compared
with a reasonable advance in freight
rates now? Such an advance would
provide the means for avoiding this
Impending disaster. The iron horse

and his harness and wagon kept in
good repair, that all he will save on
Kiieh economy will be many times
wrsted In the efficiency of his trans
portation, and also add great expense
to the shipper. It is exactly the same
with the railroads: the shipper has a
right to demand that transportation
be ample and elficient; the success of
his business and the development of
the country are dependent on it.
The Investor: To do this, the rail
road must show adequate returns to
maintain proper borrowing credit and
present a promising source of invest
ment to procure the necessary funds
to improve and develop the property
as needed. It is neither the railroad
president nor the shipper that contiols
the situation: it is the investor alone
who holds the key; without his un
invested dollar the railroad cannot ex
tend or Improve, no matter how great
the needs of the shipper or the country
With all the increasing cost of op
eration, supplemented by ever In
creasing and burdensome legislative
restrictions concerning their earnings,
in face of the fact that the average
dividend rate on railroads was less
than '.llii per cent for the past six
years, and the United States Supreme
Court in the case of the Consolidated
Gas Company stated that "C per cent
was a fair return on money invested
In public utilities." with the average
freight rate in Kiu9 of three-quarters of
a cent per ton per mile, the lowest in
nine years, the average passenger rate
per mile, one and nine-tenths cents,
the lowest ever reached, is it any won
der that the investor holds back and
the Hankers demand high interest
rates from the railroads? The railroads
need ?2,000.000.000.00 to put their lines
in proper condition, and to increase
their terminal facilities at all points
that are even now a necessity, and

Only by increased earnings from ad
vanced rates, and by so doing bettei
their credit by attracting the uninvest
ed dollars that are now going to other
more attractive but less productive in
vestments. What will the advance cost the Ul
timate Consumer? Poor's Manual says
the average haul of all freight in 1908
was 142 miles. The average rate in
1909 was three-fourths of a cent per
ton per mile.
The average total rate for the aver
age total haul, assuming It to be the
same as 1908, would be $1.06 per ton.
An advance of 10 on this rate would
increase the cost 10 cents per ton,
or 1-200 of a cent per pound. An ad
vance of 10 on the present specific
rates would increase the cost of 100
pounds dressed beef in New York.

New England to Mississippi Valley, not
to exceed 1 cent The Ultimate
Consumer can multiply these Illustra
tions indefinitely. The manufacturer,
jobber and retailer could easily absorb
this slight advance, because. If his
business increased but one unit, that
would more than pay the increased
cost on one hundred units.
Railroad net earnings thus Increased,
the railroads would have a ready mar
ket for their securities, and with the
money thus obtained again start all
the busiii"ss and industries now com
paratively idle that are directly or in
directly dependent on their property.
The working men would be fully em
ployed, their families would again pur
chase freely, and that means good
business for everyone.
There are 1.500.000 railroad em
ployees. It takes 2 vOO.000 men to sup
ply what the railroads need, and a vast
number of men are employed in sup
plying the personal needs of the above
4.000,000 men and their families, rep
resenting 1G.000.000 people. Every
kind of business is dependent in some
measure on railroad prosperity.
High cost of living: If it had not been
for the encouragement given railroad
investors in the past, where would we
have been to-day for our food supply?
They opened up thousands of miles
of undeveloped and unproductive land
and yet our food is high, because of
lack of supply; our consumption is in
creasing faster than our food produc
tion. If the railroad investor stops as
he now has. there will be an advance
in food rates soon that will be far
greater than increased freight rates.
High food means high labor, and high
labor means high everything. There
fore the Ultimate Consumer and the
State and National Governments should
be interested in developing land that
will produce bountiful food products.
Half of the country west of the Mis
sissippi is not used, and will not be
until covered with railroads. Who
would want to build roads in unproduc
tive lands when those in cultivated
country will barely pay the lowest rate
of interest, and the owners and man
agers are being harassed and maligned
as in no other business?
This condition will only improve
when the business man realizes that
the investor does not provide the
source of his own investments. He
waits for you to do that in some de
sirable form. Dy your individually let
ting things drift, and doing nothing,
your legislator, with no business ex
perience, hearing no advice and receiv
ing no direct information, which he
gladly would from you (quite likely
you do not even know his name), lis
tens to the only voices heard; the agi
tator or the aggressive shipper whose
views of the business world are ob
tained by looking out of the small
hole of a funnel directed at his own
plant, unconscious of other conditions
of far more importance to his own
business than the freight rates. Such
men as these by their vociferous vigor,
have stirred up a popular anti-corporation
agitation that has cowed rjmr
ties. and they are so scared of being
charged as owned or bought that all
questions of principle, equity or the
general good are Ignored. The rail
road man draws his salary, whether
the road pays or not; he does not own
it. If he does say anything he is sat
upon. The stock-holders as a body are
defenseless. You are the sufferer and
the only one who would be listened
to. Will you not study your own Inter
ests, find out your legislator's name,
and tell him the real situation? Other

These are momentous days In India.
I am writing In early December, and
while I write elections are still In
progress in some parts of India for
the members of the provincial legis

In India will be represented in popular
legislative assemblies. To be sure, the
franchise is still hedged about by
many qualifications of property and
education which would be confusing
and tedious to relate. Special regula
tions that fill many pages of the daily
papers prescribe the rules that give
the Mohammedans and the Hindus and
the universities and various organiza
tions certain votes, but the point to
note is that this is an effort, and ap
parently an honest and earnest effort.

and the very Intelligent widow of one

discussed some excellent tea and sand
wiches and sweetmeats, what the feel
ing was toward the present regime in
India. Their answers, condensed and
edited but not distorted. I hope, were
something as follows: "We acknowl
edge that. In some respects. British
rule has been a blessing to India, and
as things are now. we couldn't get
along without It. Injustice is better
than anarchy. But we do not like
to be treated as children. India Is
like a growing boy. and the clothes
that fitted him a quarter of a century
ago are altogether too small now.
Even now nine-tenths of the offices
that pay from one hundred to one
thousand rupees a month (from $33
to $330) are in the hands of the Brit
ish, and a native with the same quali
fications does not stand nearly as good
a chance of promotion as a white man.
What we demand is free education for
our children, an an equal chance
at the higher government positions
for our people. We no longer wish to
be treated as dependents and Inferi
ors." "But." ! ventured to Inquire, "do not
the new reform laws which have been
promulgated this very week show the
purpose of the government to deal
fairly, and give the people a larger
and larger measure of self-government?"
"Yes, they are good ns far as they
go." was the reply, "but they don't go
very far in giving India to the In
dians." My own opinion Is that they do go a
good ways in this direction, perhaps
quite as far as it is wise to go at pres
ent, and that they will do not a little
to satisfy the reasonable desires of all
but the extremists.
It is interesting to note that the
rulers of the native states, of which
there are over six hundred, the rajahs
and maharajahs, nre a unit In their
desire to uphold the authority of the
British. They realize that their only
hope for reare and prosperity, and the
security of their rather shadowy
crowns, is in the over-lordship of some
strong foreign power; and if this au
thority were withdrawn, the different
nationalities would get at each other's
throats like so many Kilkenny cats.
Realizing this, mabarajah of Cash
mere has deported the agitators from
his state, and has absolutely forbidden
any meetings of their sympathizers.
The gaekwar of Banoda has done the
same thing. The chief Justice of the
native state of Bharatpur. a Christian
convert and a leading figure at the
recent Christian Endeavor convention
at Agra, told me most emphatically
that his rajah and he himself would
greatly deplore any weakening of the
British authority; that, on the whole,
it was Just and fair, and infinitely
better than the state of things in
Famines still occur, but they are

Hastings, for instance, la 1770 report
ed a famine that swept off one-third
of the population of tengal. killing
three millions of people in that one

some recent famines have been, noth
ing like that is to-day possible, for
the excellent railway system of India
can now hurry supplies across the pen

The personal equation In the unrest
in India must not be forgotten. The
i rude, boorish, overbearing treatment
of natives by Europeans has much to
do with it. If Englishmen and indeed
all foreigners would use a little mors
tact and considerateness in thrir per
sonal dealings with natives, treating
them not as an inferior creation or as
dogs or the street, as some do; If
they would use a little more of the ,
gentle suavity with this polite and
subservient race for which the prince j
of Wales pleaded on his recent visit to I
