a debate in
.Congrrss on the 6th. of April:
gr. Bundy, by unatimous consent, offered
resolution reciting that claini agents in the
city of WashingtoM professing to have Special
facilities for the collection of soldiers' claims,
had in their-possessioii, or under ; their con
trol, a . large number of claims belonging to
soldiers and sailors, and that some of them
had collected claims, and refused' to pay the

Mr. Farnsworth desited,in that connection,
to say that he was in receipt of numerous
letters froth soldiers in Illinois, stating that
claim agents in Washington were writing

Pennsylvania possesses immense treasures'
of mineral wealth, and ;must extensive, Manu
factories. .To develop these, to foster every-!
thing which tends to their development, and'
to cherish and promote equally the rights
and interests of all her citizens, I firmly',,
believe to be the highest duty of her states , :
men. I regard every / . kindof impiovement• 1
coloduciie to this' end:. and am, therefore; in
favor orthe most ctiMplete systain of Internal
Works, together with a propersystem rif Pro

verling our vast mineral resources, agricul
tural products and manufactured articles

While these corporations, continue to act
their part as public servants, they should be
carefully protec.ted.. They should. not be
permitted to overstep their legitimate func
tions. As creatures, of the law, they should
obey, and be in every. respect subservient to
the law... 1 - • , i'•
In nnswer to the first' interrogatory, that
while I believe it to be improper to bring the
influence of the Executive-Department to bear
upon the Legislature, in anticipation of its
action, except in theway of recommendation,
I am heartily opposed to the creation of any
monopoly in the raiiroad system of the State,
or giving any artificial body 'created by the
law, powers which would pls - ce it' above and
beyond the reach of the Legislature.
To the , second ,interregatory, I say, 'that
while a general r-ailroad system would best
comport with it, Bo iind public policy,' it must
originate with the Legislature, and until it
shall be established by law, grants of power
may be - ,p l ooperly made to construct br a riches
when they are desired by the people_ ho are
immediately interested in the matte . , and
would promote the development of their prop
erty, and afford them avenues to market.
Such grantl•being . so restricted ,as not :to
violate indii - idual rights or public interests.
In reply to your third question, which to
my mind includes both.the othersyr say again,
that. I believe, a general law regulatint the
construction 'of railroads-and grants of power
for that purpose to be most consistent with
the public policy and interests of the Com
monwealth ;and entertaining th l ese views I
would certainly use the legitimate and con
stitutional power of Executive to Secure such
a desir4le result. t I
The Spirit' of monopoly in thiS - and other
,natters' should be discouraged in a repubtican
governMent, and, I have 'no sympathy with
any policy which may be designed for its
encouragement. . .-
