TJie English tjovoinment has
been tor a long time past enga
ged in making an exhaustive
emptily into the schedules of
maximum rates and charges of
the railroads of the country.
The investigation has just been
concluded, and the published
result h axactly what any one
acquainted with the workings of
our competitive system could
have foreseen from the outset.
As the London journal, Indus
tries, puts it: "One of the most,
remarkable circumstances that
has been brought to light in the
eourreof tliis enquiry is the
fact that no common basis of
raihvav rates and charges at
present exists, after nearlj
seventy years' experience of
railway transport, that has any
claim to be regarded as exact
and scientific. Railway rates
are levied in the most haphazard
and unsatisfactory." The re
markable circumstance would
he if it werv otherwise, for rail
road owners, like other people
under our present system, con
scientiously do their duty to
themselves and their families
by charging all the traffic will
bear. Rut does anyone suppose
that, if the railroads were in
the hands of the people whose
only anxiety would be to get
the maximum of result with
the minimum of effort we
should let a twelve-month pass
over our heads without arriving
at an exact knowledge of the
cot of transportation? The
