Pensioners of the United states Hayd received about 570,000,000.-Toledo Blade and during the same time the bondholders have received More than three times that a comp in interest alone. On which Side of this terrible struggle of the people with giant monopolies does Thomas Updegraff. Republican and Chicago. Milwaukee St. Raul r. 11 candidate for Congress stand let the record speak nest. Thomas Updegr aty while a member of the state legislature was chief advocate for the Iveal of the Granger Laws regulating Railroad charges within the state and preventing unjust and oppressive discrimination. One of the Republican members of the legislature from a county in this District at the time referred to. When he heard of up Grifis nomination for Congers said i Don t like it. Updegraft was in the state legislature with me and it was chiefly through his efforts and h u the Laws regulating Railroad transportation rates were repealed. He is a Railroad lawyer and a goal second. More than 20v00 banners and merchants in the United states have petitioned Congress to pass the Reagan inter state Commerce Bill by which it is proposed to assert the Power of the government to protect the producing and Industrial classes from extortionate . Unjust . And profits on watered Stock. Or. Updegraff has voted every time against this Bill and in the interest of the Railroad monopolies. Refer aug feb this outrage on the producing classes the Chicago Tribune a Republican paper says they congressmen Are selected As attorneys f corporate monopolies before the threats of Railroad opposition or under the Assurance of Railroad support these representatives Day after Day refuse to let a vote be taken on the Bill so Long presented and urged by or. . Comptroller Knox puts the profits of the Banks last year at 115 millions dollars with a capital Stock of a Little Over -ig3 millions or about 2o per cent profit. This monstrous profit was not enough for this greed monopoly and they asked Congress to relieve them of certain taxes amounting in the aggregate to 811.000,000 per year and Thomas Updegraft voted to pass the Bill. On the other hand the yearly increase for the capital invested in in Dastol pursuits such As farming. In less than 1 per cent yet Updegr i. Refused to vote to relieve this class of a single Dollar of taxation of every i Worth of barbed wire the tax and Royalty is 3.75. Fodyth. The Northern Pacific Railroad co. Asked of the last Congress that about 37,000,000 acres of land forfeited by that company be restored to them. The committee was made up in the interest of the Railroad but the minority insisted on an investigation which revealed the fact that the lands already donated to that company will build every mile of the Road and leave a surplus for the millionaire owners. The minority of the committee after they had ascertained this fact reported a Resolution to have the 37 million acres restored to the Public Domain their report concludes As follows it May be set Down to a certainty that there Are no Good reasons yet apparent by the people should pay the Cost of its construction and present the company with a colossus Fortune beside yet Updegraff True to the monopoly interest voted against the minority report and in favor of the Railroad.
