Mr. Emtt was - elected to sponsor
thie Bill in the Hou fit he la-t Spw
ial Seanior of the Legislature not

tion to Oie people that this bill
has real teeth anri is honesth as
signed to relieve i_ur oppressed peo
ple of unjuat. discriminating an*'

"The nilnwd.- began iwentj t»\c

his address at his home town  i
Hamitiao, 1» plan a
monopoly of i'reignl rates in .tun it
Carolina and to-tlay we »ee the pet
lection of .heir handiwork. Water
competition so essential to the equi
table regulation arid reduction of
freight rates has been absolutely kill
ed by the monopoly. We 'set the once
prosperous and thriving port-town
of Eastern North Carolina now tiea •
or suffering Ir.nii supreme inerti.
I*he railroads have done this by «t.
verting commerce which righ'ly bt
longed to be handled by our port -
town> to the great trunk lines whicu
transport our commerce for long ui
lances North and South, which a
true.- to the benefit of the Virginia
cities. ,
