Dear Sir : I notice In tilts morning's papers

mlcsloncr of railroads , In which Mr. Taylor
Is quoted ns saying : "In some atatos , notunlv

have been enacted nnd enforced which are
unjust towards railroniis nnd injurious to
the public Interests , nnd which otipht to bo

to mo thai Mr. Taylor 1 $ Indulging in reflections

do not think that .congress , [ n establishing
the onico of commissioner of railroads , con
templated making htm the censor estate
state legislation. H is not true
that laws have been enacted nnd enforced in
Iowa which are unjust toward lullroads or
Injurious to the public Interests , Mr. Tav-
lor's oftlclal testimony to the contrary not
withstanding. The laws to which ho refers
were passed by the unanimous vote of both

\Vn.i.i.nt IJ\UUAIUI : : .
IluitMMiTox , In. . Oct. fl , ItjUU. To tlio Sec
retary of the Interior Sir : Jt is unfortunate
that your commissioner of railroads should
go out of his way to attack the Iowa railroad
law. That law received the unanimous vote
of both houses of our general assembly and
the approval of the governor. It is supported
and approved by both of the political parties
tn this state , nnd so fur from being injurious
to the Intel ests of the people or the railroads ,
it has been n decided benefit to both. It ban
given n now impetus to the industrial and
business interests of tlio'state , and the earn
ings of railroads hayo been bettor under It
than they were before. It is true that the
railroad companies fo.iifht the law for a
while , and there is. still , doubtless , some irri
tation on their pa'rt : but they wore beaten In
tlio courts and are now apparently
oboyinc the law with reasonable good
faith. If your commissioner had
oxnmincd the law nnd > ts working before
condemning it I think ho would not have
committed so grave a blunder. Our present
republican candidate forgoyoruor , asn mem
ber ot the sennte , wns one of the law's
principal supporters in the legislature , nnd is
now making his canvass largely on that rec
ord. tie declares the Inw to bo the best
state railroad law in tlio United States , nnd
Kivcs it his most earnest support upon the
stump , nftot- trial , as ho did Ic placing it on
our statute boons , He will bo elected , but if
ho took the cround of your commissioner ho
would bo beaten by nn ovor\vholming , major
ity. 1 do wUh the president's commission
ers Tanner , Taylor , Hoosovolt , ot .omno
genus would let him announce the policy
ot bis administration. The people have
groa . confidence in the wisdom and the pat
riotism of tlio president und his cabinet , but
the vaporings of some ol' ? , lie subordinates
have made republicans very tired. Very
