himself and answering them, ques-
tions that were not asked by the
writer. But 1 am glad that the
evening paper has suggested a few
questions. One is that there is not
a question of freight rates involved
in this matter. Well the editjr
should get out and investigate a lit-
tle on that subject. I can refer him 1
to the Bartlesville brick plant. Go'
over and take a look at the brick '
yard where you will find three or|
four million brick piled up. And
why? Increase of freights. Go ask1
the men who deal in supplies of any j
kind, how much their freight rates
have advanced since the people of'
this state have submitted to an in 1
junction prohibiting the Corporation'
Commission from regulating and'
putting forth the laws of the state
Before the injunction by the rail- j
roads the Bartlesville Brick company,
could not supply the demand for
brick, but since freight rates have'
gone from 7 cents to 10 1-2 cents
per hundred in the state we have
one of the most important factories
in our city working under difficulties
one which employs about fifty lab-
oring men who will soon be thrown
out of employment if the present
conditions exist much longer. This
is one case in hundreds of others.
He also tells you that the execu-
tive board of the Farmers' Union
met on May 22 and denounced the
Farmers' Union Advocate for the
stand it took against the amend-
ment. Now that is. as he says, all
rot, for I have been in communica-
tion with the executive committee
of the Farmers' Union myself, and
the farmers have gone on record in
three of their state conventions
against the amendment.
But the gentleman is righ' for
once when he says that the juris-
diction of the Corporation Commis-
sion just extends to the state line
and no farther for if the amendment
carries the corporations are allowed
to take the books and all evidence
pertaining to the business of oper-

U. S. Senatoor Elkins, chairman
of the Interstate Commerce Com-

to take up the administration raii-
r./id bill finally resui .ed in its pas-
sage after twelve weeks of debate,

The advocates of the charter, or
Commercial Club amendment, or
whatever you want to cal it, are
telling you that the adoption of the
constitution stopped railroad build-
ing in this state, that there has been
no railroad building Bince statehood,
that the independent railroad cannot
get money to build railroads undpr
tne present constitution, that the
b'g railroads will not spend any mon-
ey in Oklahoma, and that the adop-
tion of the Carter amendment will
cause active railroad building to-
commence at once, that the taxes
will be lowered 10 cents because of
the increased property valuation of
the state. I will try and answer a
few of these questions.
The financial panic of 1907 came
shortly after statehood and stopped
railroad building not only in Okla-
homa but in every other state, and
the reports of the railroad presidents
ail over the United States proves
this statement. There has been
more than 275 mile3 of railroad
built since the constitution was ad-
opted and more than 500 miles of
construction Is now going on. In-
dependent railroads are getting mon-
ey for construction in Oklahoma.
Mr. Kenefick, president of the Mis-
souri, Oklahoma & Gulf, on April
20 this year offered $3,000,000 bonds
in Pari3, and the amount was sub-
s ribed in less than six day3. The
M. K. & T. railroaa is spending three
millions of dollars in Improvements
in Oklahoma, one million being ap-
propriated within the last two
months. This road haB no approp-
riation for similar improvement in
•ny other state.
The inducement of adding to tax
valuation eomes with but little grace
from corporation* that have sup-
pressed the two cent fare and the
low freight rates by injunction, se-
cured on the representation that bu-
siness did not pay under these low
rates. At the same time their prop-
erties were worth $60,000 per mile
and the road3 were hiding behind
restraining orders from a federal
judge preventing the county officers
of the state from collecting taxes
dn a valuation of $30,000 per mile.
Let the railroads pay the $8,000,-
000 of taxes that is due the state
and we could reduce the taxes that
amount, and the citizens would be
relieved to that extent. No citizen
regulation of these corporations
without information upon which to
base such regulations that the Cor-
poration Commission could enforce
under the law.
