been paid for a favorable vote on thi
capilol bill. Ho named the sum ai

The Railroad System of the United
State * , Voraua tbo American
This ia not the only question effect *
ing our people. Bat of nil great poli
tical questions , for indeed it haa be-
corao ono , it is the very ono thatnooda
the most immediate attention. Un
like the political questions , it threat
ens dircclly the civil liberty of the
citlzon , and consequently jeopardize
the American rcpuohc ,
The American people should , na of
old nnd by the eternal It will accuro
to nil without regard , life , liberty and
the pursuit of happinoua in the high
cat degree ; und to retain It no Buch , it
ia absolutely essential that no trium
virate or syndicate of capitalist gam-
blew ehnll be ennbled to control , ai-
icotly or Indirectly , the induitrios of
the people , for the roanon that flUoh a
control placm the avarice of the oltl-
zeii in opposition to and In oontaoi
nith h'd civil duties.
Dj the railroads effect the Industries
of the people ? Who dare answer ,
Nw ?
Some men will sacrifice their avarica
to their civic duties ; hey are true
patriots , but their number ia tbo
small , very much too amnll ; and their
manly independence oftentimes ro-
anlta in dUacter to them end theirs.
Thia should not bd made possible In
; hta Und of onis. But besides those
'ovr men , there nfft olhera. The mil-
ions who toil day by day , year In nnd
year out , are at the mercy of unscru
pulous demagogues , who stop at noth-
cg to subvert the suffrage of the people
ple to their greed , and thla is an out
rage upon the civic rights of all , for
the reason that the American repub
lic becomes a farce if the nuflrago of
the toiling millions ia not placed above
the ambitious fancies of men who by
chauca happen to bo their employers.
It ia more important to republican
institutions to safely guard the Bnf-
frago of the weak than to strengthen
the suffrage of the powerful , and. no
true American will over otand 'oy a
system which haa a tendency to
weaken the civic libarty of the massed
for the pecuniary Interests ot the very
It ia much moro nrueosary for the
miiintenanco of our democratic repub
lic , tint the tolling millions retain
their suffrage free and unrestricted ,
thnn to have the prestige or power of
a few millionaire railroad kingo prot-
tituto thnt suffrage.
A prostituted suffrage , such aa ia
wished , encouraged and forced by
railroad or monopoly cappers , ia the
ono great down grade of republican
life , which loads direct to an abyaa
where despotism rules absolute. Com
paratively it would not bo an evil , BO
far aa the American republic ia concerned -
corned , if half a dczan railroad kings
were disfranchised ; but It would be
the ruin of the American republic if
the suffrages of the toiling millions
were at the mercy or command of a
few unscrupulous capitaliots. So
much for the difference between the
suffrages of the few nud < iho suffrages
of the many.
Capital is avaricious and cowardly ;
the ballot should bo liberal and
brave. Therefore no political con
cord can exist between the two.
It may , perhaps , seem An exaggera
tion ia some to take thla advanced
view of the situation , but really it la
not , OB the aequel will show. Daring
the last decade the power of corpora
tions haa grown at such a rapid rate ,
thvoT conduct BO reckless and so deVoid -
Void of pauPtIflm ! and their will BO
despotic , that no uu9 can gainsay or
doubt the proposition , Q r railroad
system haa become a matter of stock
jobbing and robbery , " wild and fabu
lous , a political problem instead of an
ndustrlal enterprise , as it should be ;
i lid the result will prove aa dlsaatrous
o capital as it has been to labor , and
nero tco , unless an end is at oico
irnughtto that spsculative frenzy.
The fact la that our railroad system
s far in advance of the rooorda of the
country , not in carrying and producing
capacities , but aa to the relation of
our population and the vast extent of
our territory. Our agricultural cen-
ors have by scheming legislators been
lurlod away at breakneck speed from
he manufacturing centers , and the
esult is what we BOO , to-wit : That
he laborers In the manufacturing ceu-
ors , aa well aa the laborers In the ag-
{ cultural regions , are the victims of
hoao scheming men who have subsi
dized national legislators for the en
actment of lawa which not only made
: ho Godlike homestead law a sponsor
: Q the Immense land tmbsldlos which
hose Bohemlng men have secured , but
which has also placed labor at the
neroy of capital. Such a state of af
fairs cannot exist much longer , ere la
bor must , per forcp , assert Ua equality
with capital , and supremacy over ac
cumulated and ill gotten rlohoa.
Legislation must furnish the reme
dy , and speedily too , or a moro majes
tic , but moro terrible power , will.
It must bo undoratood , now and for
ever , that the fallacious sophistry of
railroad cappers , whether ponny-a-
linora or rellroad superintendent * , can
not forca the labor of our land in
chains. Tbo laborers of thla nation
rofnBo to moot railroad kings aa theli
equnla , in a political socae , because
ouch an equality can only ba debasing
and ruinous to the American repub
lic. Patriots on over meet patrlotr.
