The selection of representative Anderson As the chairman of the joint commission was in itself a signal Honor which attracted National attention. It was with no Small degree of reluctance that or. Anderson accepted the heavy responsibility of the chairmanship of this committee As he fully realized that the eyes of the nation would follow closely the developments and that even herculean efforts might not bring about the full measure of results hoped for. In Short or. Anderson was mindful of the past experiences of Many conscientious Perrons who had fallen by the Wayside in their declared intention to reduce the High Cost of living.

Sydney Anderson the career of representative Anderson. However has been marked by hard struggles from Early boyhood and his outstanding characteristic is fearlessness especially when the welfare of the people is concerned. To appreciate fully the influences which have moulded his character it is necessary to be in a sense familiar with his history. Born in 1882, in Zumbrota Goodhue county Minnesota he has lived close to the soil throughout his 38 years. was a Junior in the High school at Zumbrota and of the age of 16 years when the Spanish Amerl can War broke out. enlisted in april 1898, in company a 14th Minnesota. When he returned to Zuo Ibro to. His people had moved to a much in South Dakota and from that time on he was thrown on his own n4-sources. returned to the school to Complete his education and from there went to the Highland Park College of Law in Dee Moines Iowa. Then he studied Law in the office of a. J. Hockney. Former speaker of the House of representatives of Minnesota. In june 1901, he was married. At that time he had about $160. Or. And mrs. Anderson went into executive session to outline plans for the future and this is the outcome of the conference. It was decided that the Best thing to do was for Sydney to resume the study of Law so the family Treasury was divided equally whereupon mrs. Anderson retained $80 and remained Home while Sydney wont to Minneapolis with $80 to help pay his Wray through night school in Tho University of Minnesota. secured work with a collection Agency which enabled him to support mrs and son Back Home and Complete his Law. Education. In june 1903, he passed the bar examinations for the state of Minnesota but because he was under 21 years of age he was obliged to w Ait until the following september to secure his License to practice. In 1905 he Learned of a Good opening in Law in the town of Hansboro Minnesota and for five years enjoyed a lucrative practice there. Naturally aligned with the progressive though he was selected in 1910 to be a contender against congressman Jim Taw Ney for the Republican nomination for Congress. The Campaign which he w aged against the Veteran political Leader wherein he made 108 speeches in 30 Days stands out in the political the slab of . Louis Leisman 5 >1 West Clark Street won the slab of a a certified Bacon Given away at the Albert Lea packing com i Pony s Booth the last Day of the Lair. History of Minnesota. Unable in Many instances to secure anyone who would sponsor his cause in the primary fight he went on platform after platform without introduction and the very earnestness of the Man swept the audiences and carried him to an overwhelming Victory. Six times he has been elected representative from the first Minnesota District and each time with an increased majority. Ills majority in 1920 was 29.229. The great and the absorbing passion of representative Anderson is to do a real constructive service for the banners not Only of Minnesota but of the nation and it is this passion which characterizes his efforts in overcoming one obstacle after another and heading in a True line toward his goal. is convinced that the Basic cure for the ills which beset the agricultural interests of America is the removal of obstacles to farm co operation. The principal obstacle states representative Anderson is the interpretation of the anti Trust Laws under w hich the Farmer is constantly menaced if he enters into combinations for the Sale of his product. A i am in favor a stated representative Anderson a of affirmatively saying that the Farmer has a right to organize for the purpose of grading and Selling his product the Farmer As an individual cannot maintain the machinery which is necessary for the grading and marketing of his continuing representative Anderson said a agriculture is entitled to and should have As Good credit facilities and As Well adapted to its needs As those of any other Industry. That is not the Case now. The Federal Reserve system and the farm loan system can be made to serve the interests of the Farmers More adequately and furthermore can be supplemented by additional machinery which will fully provide for the necessary credit facilities. I am glad to note in this connection the More Liberal attitude on the part of the Federal Reserve Banks during the last few first Steps Steps toward the completion of the armory building at Owatonna and that possible addition of a third Story to the front portion a Balcony to the Drill Hall and various other improvements will be taken before october 1, when a new steam heating system will be is tailed.

And plead guilty to two counts one charging misappropriation of $85,000 and the other $390,-000. The original charge of $10,000 misappropriation Lias been withdrawn. Or. Wright said the Hormel concern had agreed to press Only these two charges so the mutter will not i go before the grand jury at its october session. Tho possible sentence it was declared tonight is ten years on each count with the possibility that sentences imposed will run concurrently. Later in an interview with judge Meighen this afternoon Over the Telephone he informed the Tribune that a a Cyl Thomson appeared at ten Ovocky and plead guilty to the first offence of mis appropriating $390,000.

They will be at Home i to their friends after november first in their Beautiful Bungalow at the Corner of Lake and East Clark streets this City. Central system shows hew taxes a bearing on notwithstanding that for the past twelve months the railroads As a whole have earned almost no net return on the capital invested in them Many persons insist that freight and passenger rates be reduced regardless of the costs of producing that transportation service which the Public must have. We Wmk therefore to direct attention to the fact that the costs of producing transportation Are still relatively much higher than the rates. We think it fair to ask the Public to give consideration to what the railroads Are having to pay for labor materials locomotives fuel cars taxes and interest on borrowed capital before passing final judgment upon the reasonableness of present freight and passenger rates. It is True that effective july i railway wages were reduced 12 per cent but they Are still 108 per cent higher than they were in 1914�?-the year of the beginning of the great Wir which upset everything. Hoad locomotives Cost 123 per cent More switch engines Cost 144 per cent More Gondola cars Cost 1 1 7 per cent More refrigerator cars Cost 107 per cent More Box cars Cost 122 per cent More steel passenger coaches Cost 100 per cent More and locomotive fuel costs 138 per cent More at present than in 1914. I he Illinois Central system sold Bonds in 1914 on a basis yielding less than 5 per cent to the purchasers. It recently sold $8,000,000 of Bonds running for fifteen years and the Best terms it was Able to secure yielded a return of More than 7 per cent to the purchasers. Take the single item of direct taxes for a ten year period. 1 he c lass i railroads which include All railroads having Gross operating incomes of $1,000,000 or More annually paid $98,626,848 in taxes in 191 i. In 1920 the same railroads paid $2 78,868,668 in taxes in increase of $180,241,820, or 183 per cent. I he Illinois Central system paid $3,278,107.96 in taxes in 1911, while in 1920 it paid $9,5 75,680.8 7, an increase of $6,297,5 72.91, or 192 percent. But these Are not the Only taxes affecting transportation charges. When the shipper pays hi3 freight Bill he should remember that 3 per cent of what the Railroad s Bill otherwise would be is added and collected by the Railroad As a transportation tax. Likewise when the passenger pays for his ticket he should remember that 8 per cent of what he otherwise would pay the Railroad is added and collected for the government As a transportation tax. Patrons generally consider Only the total Cost of freight and passenger transportation and Many think the railroads get the whole amount. The transportation tax collected by the railroads for the government in freight Bills in 1920 totalled $129,710,329.80, and on passenger fares $103,099,633.36�?a grand total of $232,809,963.16 this vast sum is not included in any of the railway accounts. It was collected by the railroads acting As agents for the government and remitted directly to the government. As the agent of the government the Illinois Central system collected from its patrons in 1920 the sum of $3,084,072.54 As transportation tax on freight and $2,2 54,256.87 As transportation tax on passenger fares a total of $5,338,329.41 i his is not included in the above mentioned item of $9,5 75,680.87 direct taxes paid but was collected and remitted directly to the question of abolishing the transportation tax is having consideration at Washington. The abolition of this tax would reduce railway rates without injury to the railroads. We do not bring up the question of railway taxation in a spirit of complaint. We realize that a i citizens and All business must Bear their just proportion of the expense of government. We refer to the matter just now to make it Clear that railway taxation must be added to the Cost of transportation and necessarily has a bearing on freight and passenger Rales. The Illinois Central system has been striving for More than a year to present facts in regard to railway problems for the consideration of the Public. The Public will be Able to decide for itself the advisability of such a course when it considers that the management of the Illinois Central system is the trustee of an investment in Roadway and equipment of More than a half billion dollars. We realize that this property and All railway property will be dealt with accordingly As Public sentiment develops and crystallizes. We feel therefore that we must present our Case before the court of Public opinion and we ire glad to do that having an abiding Faith in the fairness and Justice of the people when they have the facts before them. Constructive criticism and suggestions Are invited. C. Markham president Illinois Central system. Disc
