Is it any wonder that Railroad corporations Are subsidized and Given Large land interests and corporations fostered and protected to the detriment the Labouring classes while such magnates As Are found in the list below legislate and make our Laws is it any wonder that the government cannot get a settlement out the Pacific Railroad the railroads have made Many the senators mentioned in the following article Rich by their dabbling with them and aiding in their schemes. Men go to Congress poor you might say and in a few years Are millionaires. It is Patent to the mind anyone that a member Congress cannot get Rich his salary $5,000 per year. He must engage in some corrupt Job to make such fortunes. Congress ought to throttle the Pacific Road now and bring it to time. But will they do it ? we ought to have a few such men As Thurman at the Helm state. The people should retire these millionaires for a time and place in their sted honest and True men to the Trust imposed in them whether they be great statesmen not rather than Foster these pets. And above All things choose men that have had nothing to do with railroads and great corporations. The place to begin is to select state representatives and senators who Are known to be True to the people for they select the United state senators and the congressman who Are selected direct from the people should he scanned closely and see if their skirts Are clean. But when will the dear people do this that is the question. We give below a list from the Plain dealer an aggregation millionaires in the United states Senate and Congress is not far behind it the present United states Senate is largely a club millionaires.
