SPEAKING of the- nrtlioiialiiatiou of public utilities there is no sound argument, which tail lit advanced against llic acquiring of, gov- .rrdinenls of branches such as the telephone anil Hie telegraph. They run hand in hand with the postal system ami the general success of the lal- :ter affords a criterion as to the convenience, par- iiicnliirlv in connection with rates, which would {iccrue to the public. Those two systems in their nature cannot be monopolized, and the is fherc- fgre best left in-the hands of a government'. But when the matter of railways is considered Ihere cannot be a consensus of opinion in favor of gov- ownership. Railway operation, as clis- liiiguislied from telephone and telegraph, ..calls for au amount of ability of under u. stereotyped system such .as is generally pro- duced in government departments is seldom produced.... 'Goverriiiicht so cpii- not incl with that measure of suc- cess with Tfhich private enterprises of. the nature have been favored. Consisting ihe two systems in examples afforded, railways operated by com- panies may fairly lay claim to this merit. Competition is whnt, in the injerests of Ihe public, is urgently needed in railways. "Where there arc two or more competing lines route the result as to efficiency, convenience and comfort is all for the people's benefit. Govern- ment ownership would tend to kill this spirit, having the public, to accept what is given it. It ilpe_s not of course necessarily follow that this jvill be so, but there is reason for anticipating it. In the. case, of a monopolistic railway system iis controlled by a single company there may he tin argument in favor of governmentownership. Bul'cven here it is doubtful if present efficiency >yould be obtained. In the C; P. R. system, for instance, it is open to conjecture-whether a gov- ernment railway would have produced and plac- ed at the head of affairs a man like the present president. With a railway commission as arbitrators, with adequate powers, there is, at .any rate, ho present call for government ownership ofrail- ,v.ays in this country. Against national railways again it may as M'cll be said that there is always the danger of political influences being brought to bear! Parly affiliations will be apt to he weighed' against ability in dealing with officials. .Thai is to sny if we fake Ihe postal system with recent experience iis a guide. In railway operation, from' its par- ticular nature, would lie a grave hindrance to desired clficicnev. he country for many months drawing fat fees and piling up iiujje exiienscs, and he ut last liiuls not tluil there was any rascality, or defrauding or scamped work, but that too was spent nnd the road cosi forty millions more than ivas necessary. That may be a correct estimate and maybe t is not.
