Cheap Transportation—O rent Interest;,
felt in the matter— Remedies Suggest;
Washington, D. C., May 12, 1873
Perhaps the question that is attracting
most attention at the present time is that
of devising the means for procuring cheap
transportation for both freight and passen
gers. . That this subject is engaging the
minds of vast numbers of the people is
evidenced by the organization of the
‘ Patrons of Husbandry” and kindred so
cieties which have their origin in the
feeling created by the exorbitant de
mands of the various transportation
monopolies. It is said that the Farmers’
Granges in the Slate of lowa alone com
prise a membership of over a hundred
thousand. Further proof of the great in
terest fell in this matter is to be found in
the frequent conventions held, and to be
held, for the purpose mainly of inter
changing views upon this very question
of transportation. The convention of
Illinois fanners was a meeting of great
importance, which showed that our ag
ricultural people were thoroughly alive
to their interests. The convention at
New York city, which closed its session
a few days ago, the meeting of Governors
soon to take place at Atlanta, Georgia,
and the convention of Congressmen call-
ed to meet at St. Louis, Missiuri, all in
the interest of this cheap transportation
movement, have a significance tint can-
IJy their manner they seem to say, in the
iih their heimeted soldiers nor
kings with Hbeir millions And
of milllona.aan withstand. /
the trouble is that public opinion
united upon any plan of operation,

formed. The army has only

There are cer
-7 that must ne
must remain where both ore and coal are
to be found. And then, too, railroads are
tideof the &r m<
liable exchange
necessary for passenger purposes. It is de
sirable that the people should travel even
more than they do now. Therefore, we
must look further, and this necessitates
the consideration of the second method
above mentioned.
But how can the public force the rail
roads to carry freight or passengers at re
duced rates without violating the very
principle upon which our government is
founded, to-wit: the inviolable right of
personal freedom ? If the state has the
right to establish rates at which trans
portation companies shall be compelled
to carry freight and passengers, upon the
same principle it may establish the priced
at which the farmer shall be compelled to
sell his grain, the manufacturer his wares
and the artisan his labor. There is one
principle that should never be lost sight
of —that there should be nodiscriminatlon
made between individuals or between
classes. Besides being unjimt to adopt
any arbitrary method of fixing rates for
the carrying of freight and passengers it is
equally impracticable to do so. Tbere
could never be any settled rales
would not, at limes, be either too high or
100 low, and there could be uo rates fixed
that would prove satisfactory to all concern
ed. While the shipper might think them
too high the carrier would think them
too low, and the same spirit of antagon
ism between the two classes of shipper
and carrier would continue to exist ju;-l as
it does now and even to a greater extent
The true principle is tn allow transpor
tation rates to adjust themselves naturally,
just as the prices of merchandise and the
wages of labor are supposed to do under
our present system. Tins natural method
is that arising from free competition. The
government has a right, yea. it is its duly,
to see that the principJes 'of competition
have full play. In duty to the public it
should remove all obstacles, ad the causes
of friction. The obstacles to free compe
tition are monopolies, and this is just that
of which the people complain. But how
these monopolies may be broken up is the
problem pressing for solution. It has
been proposed that the government should
purchase and manage the railroads, and
this seems likely to be the method thatfe
will be adopted in Great Brittain. The
difficulty here, however, is that the gov-
ernment itself becomes the greatest mo
i nopoly of all, and this is contrary to the
i spirit of our institutions. Our people
belieye in the principle of confining the
; government to its legitimate functions
: of preserving order and preventing frauds.
But there is one other method that does
not seem to have been suggested up to
waywlth IhcTKOessUy
ealrable. by
only being edfployed)
carry freight andpaaeen
mi)y equal to that realized
tineas which ia both prao
la. ,
Ibis time. Mr. Josiah Quincy, a staunch
friend of the people, in ,%n addresr dellv*
ered before t|e National Cheap Transput
tallon Convention at the Astor House,
New York, the. other 0 day, came very
near hitting the nail square on the head.
His proposition is that the government
shall purchase all the road beds in the
county, and allow the public to run
trains of cirs opop them. This certainly
permits-the full operation of thi prioci*
ple'-of free competition, and under such a
system the railroad carrying business
will exactly resemble our present river
navigation system. The; roads become
publib highways in reality, uppn which
all other people without respect, of per*
sons, are permitted to travel iand to com*
plete In business. : The high standing of
Mr. Quincy is sqlßcient to obtain for this
suggestion "a candid hearing.
There is one difficulty in the way of
the successful inauguration of such a
system, ahd it is found in the enormous
expense that will attend the purchase of
the seventy thousand miles of road bed.
This would nefcessitateibe trebling of our

It can certainly be done, easily *done,
without involving the government in a
single dollar of indebtedness, or' without
the violation of the right of individual
personal liberty, without any disorlmina
tion between individuals or classes. . But
i how can this bfe done?
The answer is: “By the enactment of
a law requiring the companies owning
the road beds to permit the use of them
by any person and all persona loir the run
ping ot trains tberCou upon the payment
of certain tolls, and forbidding the fan
ning of trains by'tbe persons or companies
interested In the road beds upon which
stlch trains shall be moved. In a word,
separate the ownerships the road beds
same individuals or corporations. Let
the lolls be agreed upon by the represen
tatives of both classes and if no agree
ment can be made in this way, then let rt
be done by arbitration. Let the tolls be
fixed for suclydlmnite periods as may be
agreed upon by these conventions of rep
resentatives or arbitrators.
Now, it is not believed that this plan
has ever before been suggested, and the
writer flatters himself that it is entirely
original with him. The plan advocated
by Mr. Quincy, referred to above, comes
nearer being the same than the writer
has seen in the course of considerable
reading upon the subject.
One merit of this plan is its simplicity.
Another is its inexpensiveness. Still
another is that it makes no discrimina
linns. These three features seem to make
it just what is desired. At all events it
is worthy of the most serious study, and
it should be agitated. Let it be proposed
in some of the future conventions. Let
the people think about it. Let all the
arguments pro and con be adduced, and
let it stand or fall according to it's merit
or its lack of merit. Sam.
If there is any one fact more prominent
than another in the experience of Indian
affairs it is the absolute impossibility of
making a peace with savage
tribes while they remain unsubdued by
force. A very striking illustration of
this truth is furnished by the recent suc
cessful completion of treaties with the
worst of the Arizona Ind ians, by General
Crook, after all efforts to, persuade lh<‘
Apaches into peace had failed, and had
only intensified their truculence and au.
dacity. The Jieroni has for several years
repeatedly pointed out the uselessness of
appeals to the moral nature of the
Apaches, and again and again have our
views been borne out by the facts. The
result of the Colyer mission to Arizona
was to increase the daring, insolence and
intractability of °tho Indians, to feller
the hands of General Crook, to expose
life and property U> greater dangers than
ever, and to postpone a final settlement
of the Indian question in that region. A An unsophisticated correspondent

patiently and persistently followed the
savages, giving them no breathing time,

point at once. They wanted it distinct
ly understood that they considered them
selves very thoroughly beaten and had.
no more stomach for fighting. They con
fessed that they had been baffied at their
own game, and they respected and fear: cl
the power that had defeated them. It is
the general opinion among those who are
best acquainted with the Indian character
that this peace will last, and that the
Apache-Mohaves and Apache Tontos will
behave themselves decently for the future.
After such a triumph General Crook had
a right to use the language of just exulta
tion which appears in his General Order
No. 14, issued on the 9th inst. We cann t
do better than to close with an extract
from this document :
