to tbe fact that the manufacturers of
fh# country are the beneficiaries of the
protective tariff, while the government
uot only furnishes no protection of an
analogous character to the transporta-
tion interests, but its altitude is dis-
tinctly hostile, which attitude is reflect-
ed in the legislation of the various
states. Mr. Dunn supports with many
significant facts and figures his plea for
treatment of^ railway interests with a
fostering fairness corresponding to the
protection of the manufacturers.
While the manufacturers of the Unit-
ed Slates, according to tbe census bu-
reau, made a profit of 15 per cent, tbo
net returns of the railroads for the
same year were 4 per eent, and while
the manufacturers, according to the
government's own figures, paid out 21
per cent of their gross receipts for
wages and salaries, the railroads paid
out 40 per cent of their receipts for
wages and salaries. Yet while the
manufacturers are enabled to maintain
good prices through tariff protection,
the railroads have been for several
years the victims ef a "downward revt-
1 sion” legislation which more than one
court has found to be confiscatory. |
The whole trend of legislation is toward j
a reduction of 33per eent in the
prices which the railroads are permitted
to charge for passenger transportation

could and should be shipped in Ameri-

not of so much importance as the es-

celerated antagonistic movement
