CANDIDATE FOR RUUD COMMISSIONER 1H.
PEEPLES, WRITES FORTIER OF FREIGHT RITES
Freight payer, do you know
that “The Railroads ot Georgia’’
admit that “there are about
nineteen hundred and forty rail
road stations (cities and towns)
in Georgia” that are discrimin
ated against, under the present
freight rates? These cities and
towns have to pay a higher
freight rate than the remaining
cities. How does that strike you
farmers, laborers, and mer
chants in the country towns of
Georgia? Reader, I feel like
that you will agree with me
when I say that it is grave in
justice to give one city pre
ferential Ireight over the remain
ing cities and towns. Why? Be
cause it enables the one that is
granted the lowest frieght rate
to under sell the cities and towns
that are not granted an equally
low rate. In other words, the
city with the piefered freight
rates prospers at the expense of
the cities and towns that are not
granted the same rate.
“The railroads of Georgia”
continue that they have “sug
gested for the consideration of
the Railroad Commission of
Georgia, a system of freight
rates that is believed will elimin
ate the discriminations now ex
isting betweeu the cities and
towns of Georgia,” but at the
same time they are expecting
“increased revenue” in the re
venue” in the “re-adjustment”
of freight rates.
With “Nineteen hundred and
forty cities and towns” already
paying excessive rates, can any
one explain how a “re-adjust
ment” would eliminate the ex
cessive rates that these cities
and towns are paying and at the
same time bring in “an increas
ed revenue” to the railroads?
If the Georgia Railroad Com
mission should grant the in
crease in freight rates that the
railroads are now asking for,
“The shippers’ Association” says
it will cost the people of Georgia
approximately $3, 000,000 per
My opponent is a chairman of
the Georgia Railroad Commis
sion, and also chairman of the
W. A. Commission. Isn’t it
true that Hon’s C. M. Candler
and Asa. G. Candler are near
relatives and the latter is a
direotor in the Nashville Chatta
nooga & St. Louis railroad,
which is said to be owned by the
Louisville and Nashville railroad
a corporation that is seeking to
destroy one of the state’s chief
assets, the W. & A. railroad.
View the situation from every
angle and see just what conclu
sion you reach in your own
trust the results at the hands of
the fair and impartial minded
people of Georgia.
