We forgot to (spi c i.-lly amnion a
sition a building will be j an argument. "Equality is Equity,"
r this department. F. IJIrich j exclaims Col. Hinsdale when he urges
that the younger roads in the State
ought to be kept ou an equal footing
with the older ones by not passing the
commission bill. We take it that the
members of the General Assembly are
intelligent enough to know that no rail
road in North Carolina, no matter how
old its charter, has a vested ri,;ht to dis
criminate in its schedules and charges
against any section of tbe State. A com
mission bill that will prevent discrimi
nations on the part of these old corpor
ations will bring equality and equity
the things that the people earnestly de
sire and demand. It the old railroads
want to exercise the right granted them
in their charters let them do it, but
compel them to treat all sections alike.
