We invite special . attention to this
vote, ana in newspaper parlance con
jure our readers to May it -aside as' it
will be valuable for reference." By
this standard constituents must try the
faith of their members when the rail
road question, in its broad sense, comes
up for action in the General Assembly.
Mr. Kincr. of Wilson, has a bill now be-
'fore the Legislature to prevent railroad
companies from exercising discrimina
tion in their freight charges. When it
comes up it will be interesting to note
the attitude in which the gentlemen
who voted "aye" on Mr. Foard's amend
ment will stand to it. We shall see if
some of ; them will "not undertake ' to
stave off action : we shall see if some of
them do not dodge when it comes to a
vote; we shall see if some of them
do not vote on the other side of the ques
tion. The above record will serve, by
comparison, to show the people to What
extent the present Legislature is dis
posed to feed all the railroads put of the
same spoon. This ' record will tell a
pretty tale on somebody before the 8th
of March. A body of men applies an
amendment to one railroad and refuses;
on the next vote to apply it to others.
It discriminates against one railroad Hi
voting that it alone of all the railroads
in me oiaie snau noi discriminate i .a.
parallel for this can only be found in
the case of Federal Judge Settle who pre
s'.des over a court in which he himself
has not the qualification of a juror. And
mind you I Some of the gentlemen who
voted to appl this 'amendment to the
Raleigh & Augusta Air-Line Railroad,
and then voted against 'applying it to
all others, are representatives of coun
ties lvincr on the Carolina Central Rail
road, and some pf them five in towns
which are forced to haul their pur
chases to other markets in wagons be-f
cause of the discrimination practiced by
the Carolina Central!
One other thins : ' Those who did not
vote for this amendment on account of
personal friendship for Wilmington,
based their votes on the. claim that by
the building of the proposed branch
older interests "would suffer and' the
State's interest in he North Carolina
