rates as willonablo them to collect an
I nually 8 per cent and 0 per cunt on
the bonds.
But , inviting .is the subject may be ,
it is not my purpose to inquire into
the mothodHby which the owners of
the Central Pacific livvo acquired
their stupendous wealth. I luvo do-
sirodjonly to nhow that their extortions
are as unnecessary aa thuy are un
grateful and dishonest.
In relation to.oxoeB.iivo charges and
discriminations in Novada-and I
have not deemed it noce Hary to go
[ beyond I have presented facts which
in no oasuntial particular will bo
denied. 1 have submitted the printed
\ rates and instructions authorizing
' 'thuHp merciless charges , toguthur with
Tocoiptod bills showing that they have
been collected. I have shown that in-
. atead of advancing the induatrius of
the state , the railroads are Hitting like
an incubus upon the of unter
, prise and dwarfing the I'lii-igies of the
people with thu panilynm of thuir
' almost boundless impositions ; that for
-overy dollar they collect logitimatuly
for services performed thi > y uxtoit

of i.ioir road , fearing the penaltiua
thuy have HO of tun uoen muted out ,
toll in whinpoM of the rates thuy pay
and iiusitato to exhibit their receipted
railroad bills.
And in connection with thoiiu fact
and statements I now make thu unier
tiou , basud ii | > un a ruaaonablu t'Hti
iinato , that during the past tun your
the Union r.nd Cuntral Pacific railroai
compaiiius have iiisoluntly and with
' utoxplanation taken from thu pocket
of the people of Nevada $ : (0,000,00 (
in gold more than thuy woru justly

which thuy have had no authorit ;

All i tat the pcoplo of Nevada lu
is that their freights from New York

crud from two hundred and tllty t
aevun hundred miles east of thu uo !

the same points. la this iinrcasuna

dredK of miles of carriage which thu :
. 'fronj'- ' ' < never receive , but , in th
Viiamc > f humanity , they implore tha

' * TJioIleagan bill will give them thi

Lot not thn provisions of the bill In

for a longer distance not charges

gate , without respect to mik-s.
This bill doc * not go fat enough ,
but it will answer for the present ai a
compromise bctttcon unchecked dis
crimination and complete restraint ,
and railroad owners will do well if
they accept it. It embodies but n
part of the true principle of railroad
ing , which is that charges for carriage
should bo the pamo per mile for tin
same classes of freights , irrespective
of distani-c , with a reasonable allow
ance for handling freights when car
ried leas than a certain number of
Coiurroas created the Tnion and
Central Pacific railroad companies ,
and has thereby made the govern

> f this most important of questions in
ufurring to the relations botweun the
ailro.ul corporations and the political
lowers under which , and nubjuct to
vhich , they hold alike their being
uid their life. The decisions of the
lighest tribunals in the land , as well
is the reasoi able Rtiggost ions of com-
uon sense , warrant us in asxuming
uthout further question that corpor
ations existing by virtue of spuuial
grants are untitlud to privileges' just
it long , and so long only , as they
uhsuivo the special purposes for
which they yore created
Their roads are public highways ,
ml not private property , and a ? such
luas legitimately Hubjcct to the re-
traintn of legislation .is are toll-roads
r private bridges , for the mo of
which tolls are exacted. The roll-
ng stock is theirs ; the rails and ties
re theiis ; the depots are theirs , to
out , soil or give away ; I ut thu high-
vays they have constructed through
ondemned private property and over
ho legal thoroughfares of the land
an never cease to bo the property of
lie public , for they become the estatu
f all through a mcrifico of private
i hts. This is a sacrifice which thu
tate alonu can command for its IISUB ,
nd neither in ilii name nor by its
uthority can this prerogative bo
Tansfurrod , either directly or indi-
ectly , to others. _ _
The few who content ! that
ro ptivato property , and as such bo-
'ond the control of legislation , at-
impt to sustain tlioniNulvos with the
ssiimption that , admitting the right
f the law-making power , to regulate
lilroad rates , there would then bo

t has boon maintained by the sti-
rome court , and properly , that if a
ate possessed the right to tax the
icuritics of the general government ,
ion might , it bo taxed out of uxUt-
nco by state conspiracy This posi-
on is lusud upon the theory of
supreme and indestructible
ontral authority. Uo our rail-
> ad autocrats claim ox-
inption from legislative control on
10 ground that they too occupy a
ofty piano beyond its constitutional
'oachf ' From thuir acts this proaump-
ion is rojHonable. Jtut the illustra-
ion is unforttinati ) , since it suggests
ho other extreme of unbridlud rail-
oad licuiwu. Say il were possible to
ugislatu railroads into bankruptcy a
ircsumption too absurd to be suriously
nturUinod what , on thn other hand ,
vould there bo to prevent railroad
iorporations , if unrestrained by logis-
ation , from taxini ; communities and
iidividuals to the very verge of ruin ?
I'lio answer to this JH , that compoti-
ion may bo relied upon to prevent
excessive charges. True , where there
s competition rates are usually satis-
actory ; but in.stoad of computing with
iich otlier railroads have fallen into
ho more profitable habit of making a
combined usmult upon the public by
iggreeing upon rates and dividing
lie plunder 1 1 once , oven where
: oniiutition | is ] io.isiblo it cannot

incu of reasonable rates. lint com-
uitition is not nhv.ijti possible , and

ilo the overland ro.uls connecting at
Ogden to absorb in charges , unless
checked by legislation , 'the untiru
irolits of our continental commerce , _ thuy now ountunt themselves -
selves with about two-thirds.
I spoke a moment ago of the pur-
| ) osos of legislation in granting Bpecial
privileges to lailroad corporations - of
the considerations utgwl in wairant
of the eoticossion of unusual
franchises , trampling to some
extent upon personal rights.
These considuraHoiiH are public
convenience and increased commer
cial facilities between communities.
and whunovur a corporation fails tc
confur thcso bunulits , its contract witli
the statu falls equitably if not logallj
void , and its chartered rights , forfeit
ed by every suggustion of fair deal
ing , revolt to the peoplo. Kailroads
not only foil to benefit but wantonlj
injure communities when they dia
criminate against thorn , and by tin
act their chartois are annulled am
their corporate privileges cease. 1
wo cannot take away theao violatei
chariots , wo can at least compel i
butter observance of the spirit o
tiiuir provisions , Wo might in jus
ticu do nioro. In strict regard to on
obligations wo cannot possibly do less
With a community of inlorea
lily drawing them together in ng-
Hive as well us defensive alliance ,
hu railroad corporations of Iho coun
try , representing a capital of over
luiir thousand million dollars , and tic
i rule controlled by nMo 'nit ' n-
'ciencelcsH mm , have .it ; , n Ui 10
ceded to a eomniercir.l and political
power as omniponuut in lotno of the
slates of thii union aa it is dangerous
to thoin all.
With tlm munaco * o p < ir ' nil rights
ind good govannnant , and7itli
juslictH upon the atiprc no heaJi
openly justifying their usurpations ,
it has become the questioned duty ol
congruM a d'lty so plain that it sunns
to mo that no mombir in Bnfely dis
regard it , inilets ho is hulmeted
against his own conscience to put an
end to the encroachments of thene
ovuishadowing combinations , whose
arms are steel , like thu tentacles of
the ilevil-liih , are taking a continent
to their vast embrace
And when ahoiildthis duty bo per
formed ? Not next year but this ; not
but . Wo should
to-morrow , to-day _
not sleep until this gigantic power ,
{ rowing bolder with its success , shall
lave pinioned the arum of authority
and fttiflcd the voice of legislation.
Wo are unshackled now , and may be
iblo to do what thn future might bo
wwcrlesB to accomplish. Therefore ,
ot us act act at once and not leave
.o mo who may bo losi resolute , and
.o events which may bo less propitious ,
, ho performance of a duty already too
eng neglected and plainly oura.
It is in no spirit of personal un-
'rieiidliness to the managers of the
Union and Central J'acific railroad
companies that I have made thin
shoeing of their misdemeanors. I

eight Christian commonwealths will
