CASH CAPITAL-$50,OOO.OO. , From the Sioux .City Journal: it. 3> r was asked yesterday if he bad- Hit a story to tell about his observations while in Washington, and replied that a retnark made to him by lion, j. D. Yeomahs set him to thinking and investigating. The remark was that the people oi! Iowa have but littlfi idea how strong the feeling is in Washington that Senator Win. B. Allison will be a strong candidate for the republican nomination for president. Mr. Yeomrms said the feeling was growing steadily that Mr. Allison would be a strong nominee. Mr. Taylor said he went to making inquiries and found there is not nearly as much feeling that the nominee should come from a doubtful state as heretofore, and that in fact the doubtful state cry will cut but a small figure this time. Mr. Taylor said that he found a strong McKinley sentiment, but it was recognized that McKinley represents the extreme of the protection theory, and there is a disposition now not to go to the exteme. He also found some Eeed sentiment, but there was a feeling that Eeed comes from the wrong section to make him a strong candidate. There was a strong current manifested that the nominee for president should come from the west and the vice president from the e.ast, probably New York. It was said that Allison is the strongest conservative candidate that can be put up. He is an able representative of the conservative protection element of the partyy and he exactly represents the majority of the party on the financial questions of the day. oh thfe assumption that it makes tto v fort tb ascertain whether or not the co. potations are complying with the law. It ifitist certainly be as well informed in tile matter as the public, and this shoiild lead it to take steps to huntdown Violations and bring those guilty Of th.etfi to punishment. As matters now are the law is practically worthless and the existence of a commission to carry out its provisions and protect the people from abuse is a mockery. It is intended by the railroads that permission to pool would correct this "evil, but it ought to be possible to correct it Without sucli a concession. Pooling might prove to be advantageous both to the public and to the copofatioiis, but it catJilot be admitted that it is indispensable to the regulation of the corporations under the law. If the govern- mcttt cannot enforce the interstate commerce law it had better be repealed; but it can be enforced and will when met) are found who are disposed to faithfully perform the duties Which the act imposes on them.

'Ornaha Bee: That the interstate commerce law is being, flagrantly, persiat- ently .and systematically violated ev- irybody understand. One of the pur- >ppses- for -.-,which .the a,ct,. was vTra&eiftwafe to piit a~stop to the making of secret rates, on'the payment of .rebates. It has Bailed to accpmplish this, and almost from the day it went intp'^ffect the ingenuity of the railroad managers has been exerted in finding ways to'evade it. But while it is a matter of general knowledge that this is the case, 'the public can form no estimate of the extent to which discrimination in the form of rebates is carried. Some idea of it, however, may be obtained from what has been disclosed by ' investigations into the affairs • of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe company,since that company went into the hands of receivers. It is said that the sums paid to the favored shipper in the form of rebates in the last two or three-years aggregate.not less than $7.000.000. In other words, this one corporation has used this large sum of money in giving the large shippers who do business with it an advantage over the small shippers, in distinct disregard and defiance of the law of the United States intended to secure equality to all shippeis. . , If it has cost this single company the enormous sum of $7,000,000 in paying rebates Spring a period of ,two or three years, what must be the aggregate for all the'railroad corporation which, since the interstate commerce act went into effect, have been violating it in this particular? It is not an'exaggera- tion to s'ay that hundreds of millions have.been paid back to shippers, who in tlus way were given an unfair advantage "by the railroads since the enactment of the interstate commerce act, The practice has .been .almost ruinous to many corporations, ,whue at the same time thousands of business failure's have bee» directly due to the aisoriminati9n in the watter of rates, which, puts pusipess me,n not able to command the favor of raiJrpacj, managers at & great disadvantage, ,RaUways pretend $o aeijre a schedule of rates and gtrJct adjjgrenic^ J$ J$, as 'required by'the JaWj tut'ft^ 8'BJatt^ $ *&$' E° SQQnerif the'nebeduje m&9 tbajj.they -'"- - 1 -"#ng e.act) pt&ep o,n jfc and in- YioIatJBfJbe express pronib W.
