TtM cominiajionor says that rate wars nr» in moat canes dovold of palliation or C3CCU33 ami arc inaugurated without reasonable oauso. "I do not n^ree," he says, "with fcho clnim so pjraULently mado by railroad mnnaKorn, their organs and satellites, that the recent losses sustained iu railroad business nrj !iminly diu> to the reatrict- Ivo laws which have of late beeu enacted by nongronn nfirl (n Tivu'y of the wpfit^rn RtTt^i."

Tho Pacific Rutlwnyf. Taking up the question of tho Pacific railways, Commissioner Taylor discusses tho best means of securing tbe government tho money the roads owe tt, and at tha samo time so fixing the rates and time ns not to cripple tlio railways. "Time Is of small Importance compared with security In the adjustment of theso matters," gays tho commissioner. "It is very clear to my judgment that there should bo an extension of time and a reduction in tho rato of interest. * * * It is my opinion that it would bo wise to pass an act giving a reasonable extension of time; reducing the rate of interest to 3 or 4 per ceut. ; requiring that the earnings from nil govnrnriwnC in'uuiportnllan by the Fulisidirod companies? or limin opttrntod by Oiein, whether aided or unaideil, should be applied to the _ psy montj>f any interest or principal due or to become due within 'the fiscal year in which the services might bo rendered ; prohibiting tho payment of any dividends by either of tbe subsldizsd companies, unless such company shall have paid all interest on its boniled debt — having a lien prior to tbut of the government — and all matured indebtedness and interest then due and payable on Its debt to the United States; and exacting the payment of such a percentage of the gross earnings of the subsidized lines as by careful estimates would realize sums sufllclcnt to pay accruing interest and raise a sinking fund that would moot the principal ot tho debts at their maturity."
