As the Southern Railway’s common

stocks of the old Richmond Terminal

very dearly at that, as any of th* old

the reorganisation wax effected It was In
the darkest period of railroad depression
nnd the mow that was expect#-*! In the
company was to save the charges
on the old bonds. Moat of these l#on<!*
were assessed and the stocks were all
heavily taxed. The Richmond Terminal
shareholders had to pay 110 a shore and
the Bast Tennessee common stockholders
fT.g) per shore, and give up t© per rent,
of their stockholders. Tin- burden was
ao heavy and the Southern Railway com
mon stock offered In exchange appeared
so valueless that mtny holders would not
pay the assessments and threw the bur

The rates complained of by the citliens
of Danville may have been too high, hilt
any man who has owned dock In a re

mony that the process is a costly one.
The common stock of big Industrial syn

bought out at high prices Is frequently
given away to the promoter#, but In the
case of bankrupt railroads the reorganised
shares, however worthless they may be.
have cost the ortgnal stockholders a

Morning News: Accepting your editorial
In the Morning New* of yesterday nn
"Free Delivery on Parcel* Post" as be-
Ing substantially correct In lls con< lu
sion*. that free delivery and the parcl*
post would bring a large portion of the
articles we buy In country atorea to us
cheaper than local merchants could sell
such article*. It seem* to me there ean
be no reasonable doubt that for the rea
son slated we may expect to see them es
tablished at no distant day. The clan*
opposed to such cheapening U no sma'l
compared to the masse:) who do not only
want, but will have, such change
when they see the chance, that In the
nature of things the change must come
Any such pleading a* you mention, that
certain dealer* will be driven out of bua-
Inees, will not avail. The people are
anxious to knock a- many "middle men"
out as possible. And they are right In
so doing There Is no Justice In paying
men to do a thing at n high pront when
others can perform the service at lea*
coat to consumer- than by an old out-of
date system This tendency I* In ac
cordance with Ihe spirit of Ihe age, ihe
cheapening of Ihe necessaries and lux
uries of life. There has always been
somebody to oppose every Change of Ihe
kind, but such opposition never prevails,
and never should. It Is through such
changes that poor people now enjoy many
comfort* that formerly were only In
reach of the rich, and further hack w .*
not even to he hod hy ihe richest. You
are right, free delivery Is very pop
ular with people where It ha* been
tried, and It afford* an immense saving
where one man can deliver mall lo a
large number of people dally who woul!
lose valuable lime to go for their mall
Individually even once a week, and the
parcel* post will naturally be desired all
the more when people And there I* so
much saved by not being compelled lo go
from Ihelr homes for small articles that
can be brought to them so much cheaper
than for each one to go after them
Hence, a* I have said, these change#
are aure to come, and the prospect l a
most gratifying one Country life will be
made much more agreeable than formerly,
and anything that adds to the attraction*
of farm life a* com;ired with residence
In towns Is a distinct gain In the wel
fare of the people who we know, have
often left their country homes lo Ihelr
great detriment, morally and otherwise.
