Hillenmeyer Lexington, Sons. Ky. & ' - Nurserymen Since 1841. Washington, Dec. 11. William J. Bryan, who startled the country ten years ago by ndvocntlng government1 ownership of railroads, appeared before the Newlands Joint Committee on Interstate Commerce last week In support of the claim that the states should be allowed to retain authority over the regulation of all transportation lines within their borders" Mr. Bryan explained that ho had long regarded government ownership as Inevitable, but only because of railroad opposition to effective regulation. Against Government Ownership. "Personally 1 cannot say that I desire government ownership," he explained, "because I lean to the Individual Idca rather than to the collective Idea; that Is, I believe that ownership Is desirable only where competition Is- Impossible." Alfred P. Th'otn, counsel to the Railway Executives' Advisory Committee, previously had presented before Uip members of the Newlands Committee as one of his reasons for urging a bettor balanced and more systematic regulation of railroads the argument that this Is thejnly alternative to government ownership. Calling attention to the restrictions Imposed upon the transportation lines by conflicting jtfnte laws and regulations, to the practical cessation of newconstructlon and to the Impossibility under existing conditions of searing the new capital needed for extensions and betterments of railway facilities, he Earned the Congressmen tjiat unless they provided a fair and rea'sonable system of regulation that would enablo the railroads to meet the growing needs of the country's business the national government would be- compelled to take over the ownership or the lines with all the evils attendant upon such a system. Preservation of Competition. Mr. Bryan, on the other hand, holds that the further extension of federal authority over the railroads would be a step In the direction of government ownership. He advanced the view that the centralization of control In the hands of the national government would Impose too great n burden upon the regulating body, would offer strong temptation to railroads to Interfere In politics and wlJuld encourage the gen eral movement toward centralization of power In tho federal government at the expense of the states. He said that ho did not object to consolidations of railroad lines ho long as they did not destroy competition, that he knew of no coniplnlnt against grent railway systems because of their size and that be believed that the preservation of competition was' Hie test to be applied to all consolidations. Regulation of Securities. Mr. Bryan declared himself In favor of riatlonal regulation of railway stock and bond Issues,- - but added that be saw no reason M'hy that should exclude the states from acting on the same subject as to state corporations. "I would like to sco the stogie of a railroad, as long as It Is In private hands, mada as substantial and as unvarying as the value of a government bond," be asserted. He suggested, that railroad capitalization be readjusted to equalize It wlfli actual valuation of tlio property represented, making due allowance for equities, and that when this was done the roads should be allowed to earn sufficient incoVSeto- keep their stock at par and to prete.fl surplus. Tho latter, be tentatively proposed, might be allowed to amount to 25 per cent of tho capital. Ralfway Earnings Low.
