A even if they were under the same control this would not prove that the railways pay excessive prices and indisputable facts regarding almost innumerable transaction of the purchasing departments of the railways could he presented to show that they do not and have not paid higher prices than other purchasers of the same tilings. A everything the railways buy except labor has been reduced. A among the item of alleged a waste or. Lauck mentions is loss and damage.
