The gas line is not going to give nearly as much employment as do ur transportation systems conslst- ng of railroads, and after all the maximum employment of our labor t the chief factor In bringing about prosperity. Therefore, as I see It the patriotic duly of our legislature la to levy an adequate tax on any form of Industry or transportation systems^ that encroach on our present industries which is reality have made possible :he building of a state and a nation.
