There Is no other interest so central to the business wel-

ance importance of understanding and dealing Justly with the rail railroads,
roads, railroads, certainly the American plowman can venture upon
a careful study of the problem. C. E. Schaff,4 president of the M. K. & T.
railway company, when asked to outline the relation of the public to rail railroads
roads railroads investments, said in part:
"It may be said that the railroad world is encumbered with a lot of
phantoms which exist only la the popular fancy. For instance, because
there have been a few so-called 'railroad magnates whose names have figured
prominently in finance, many people have come to believe that the railroads
of the country are largely owned by a few rich men. As a matter of fact
nothing could be farther from the truth. Out cf the colossal sum of twenty
billion dollars of American railroad securities, less than five per cent is now,
cr ever has been. In the hands of these men who have figured prominently in
the newspaper headlines while the other S5 per cent is In the hands of ever
two million investors, large and small, who in many instances have put the
modest savings of a lifetime Into these securities in order that they might
lay away a competency for old age. When, therefore, the value of these
securities is depressed or perchance destroyed, the hardship is a hundred
fold greater upon thousands cf 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
Insurance companies, savings banks, trust companies, educational and fiduciary
institutions are invested In railroad bonds and the moment, therefore, that
the soundness of these bonds is called Into question the financial solidity of
these myriad institutions directly affecting the welfare of millions of policy policyholders
holders policyholders and bank depositors is gravely menaced. During the last several
years, many millions of dollars representing depreciated values, have been
charged off the books of concerns like those enumerated above. American
railroads have become a vital part of the very woof and fabric of the cation.
Their continued efficiency is absolutely essential to the smallest community
In the land.
In blindly striking at the railroads our blows fall not merely upon thou thousands
sands thousands who have committed no wrong, but. In the last analysis, upon ourselves.
We should remember how interdependent we have come to be in this mighty
republic of ours that each is In truth become more and more his brother's
keeper, and that we need to act and think circumspectly, lest in our mistaken
