contemplates government owner-
ship of all property and tho con-
sequent destruction of personal
property rights. The present
position of populism with refer-
ence to government ownership of
railroads is only tentative and is
only intended to mark the first
step. The populist State plat-
form this year deolares in favor
of government ownership of all
railroads, and tor a starting
point proposes the construction
of a State railroad from Red
river to the gulf. Barnett Gibbs
brings this question to the front
as his hobby in this campaign,

pose in view as that which actu-

Populists are unable to show that
this railroad will bo of more ben-
efit to the State than any of the
other lines now in existence. The
populist State platform does not
state how the money is to be se-
cured with whioh to construct this
road, but Gibbs says that the
free sohool funds of Texas are to
be used for that purpose. There
is not half enough of this money
to accomplish this end, but Shel-
ton says that they intend to issue
State bonds bearing interest at
the rate of 4 per cent., and thus
finish up the job. But the popu-
list State platform of this year
denounces the policy of bond is-
sues for any purpose, either in
times of peace or war. When
his attention is oalled to this faot,
he, by his acts, slaps his own
platform in the face. The truth
is that the pops have but very lit
tie respect for their own platform
declarations, and do not hesitate
to trample them under foot when
•it suits their convenience to do
so. They attaok the railway
commissioners, and present a
fraudulent table on commiesion
freight rates, a table prepared
by some populist 2x4 politicians,
assisted by ono Joo Farley, who
has for years been manager of
the Dallas freight bureau, and
who has time and again been be-
fore tho State railway commission
with propositions in the interest
of building up a monopoly of
trade for his employers by secur-
ing rulings which would discrim-
inate an favor of Dallas and
againBt other competing points.
Bill Shaw, who also lives in Dal-
las, has oo-operated in this fight
against the commission, but the
combined denounciations of the
entire combine have not swayed
the commissioners from the path
of duty, and now Joe Farley has
appeared upon the scene with a
populist scheme and the dis-
gruntled outfit whom he is serv-
ing arc calling him the greatest

The proposition to invest the
school money in the construction
of a railroad is a serious one, in
our judgment. The road pro
posed to be built will have no
connecting lines, and will be
forced to rely exclusively upon
local freight for support. It can-
not be operated at an annual ex-
pense of less than .$1000 per mile.
Government railroads have never
.succeeded. The interstate com-
moi'co commission report, for 1891
states that Illinois built a railroad
at a cost of 81,000,000 and finally
sold the same for 8100,000.
Georgia bui.t a road, and after
operating it at a loss, leased it to
a private company. Much en-
terprises have always been fail-
ures. but in tho face of this- the
populist party in Texas proposes
to take tho school money and
hazard it in one of these wild
schemed. Wo cannot believe
that the people will endorse such
a policy. The proposition io too
absurd to call lor serious consid-
