OUR PUBLIC FORUM
Vlll.-C. E. Schaff
On Railway Investments
President Wilson, recently referring to our rtllroad
problems, said In part: "They are indispensable tc
our whole economic life and railway securities are at
the very heart of most investments, largo and small, public
and private, by individuals and by institutions <
There is no other interest so central to the business wel
fare of the country,, as this. No doubt, in the li?bt of the
new day, with its new understandings, the problem of th»
railroads will also be met and dealt with in a spirit of
■*J candor and Justice."
W hen the first citizen of the land stresses the import
ance of understanding and dealing justly with (he rail-
roads, certainly the American plowman er.n venture v**on
a careful study of the problem. C. E. Schaff, president of the M K & T
railway company, when asked to outline the relation of the public to rail
roads investments, said In part:
It may be said that the railroad world is encumbered with a 'ot of
phantoms which exist only in the popular fancy. For instance, because
there have been a few so-called 'railroad magnates' whose i ames have figured
prominently in finance, many people have come to believe that the railroads
ct the country St a largely owned by a few rich men. As a matter of fact
nothing could he farther from the truth. Out of the colossal s-m of twentv
tjilliou dollars of American railroad securities, less than fite per cent Is now
or ever has been, in the hands of these men who have figured prominentlv in
the newspaper headlines-while the other 95 per cent is in the hands of over
twa mil,ion investors, large and small, who in many instances have put the
modest pavings of a lifetime into these securities In order that thev might
lay away a competency for old age. When, therefore, the value of tho^e
securities is depressed or perchance destroyed, the hardship Is a hundred-
mmi gr™ Dpo° th°u8aiids of every day citizens, than upon the handful of
millionaires, good or bad, who have figured prominently in railroad circles.
Hundreds of millions of dollars of the assets of our great life and fire

the soundness of these bonds is called into question the financial soliditv o<
