K pretmntatlve In General Assembly from uonttoinerv oountr W'i: the Ulidcmiulied OltiunS Of Mimigoniery ot iintv, in the State of Alabama, have notea wun some oon-oern proposed legislation affecting rail roads. Our experience has taught ui that no nxed rules can ue maue wnicn win all times determine Justly, rates frelirht between any two points. This Is especially true of inter-state commerce. The laws of competition and of trade alone Influence and control the adjust ment of rates. The past has clearly demonstrated that the tnanairurs of railroads recog nize these inlliiences, and all localities are orlveu the benefit of them. In Alulmma iWDGciallV. do we recoR- nine the areat benefits to be derived from railroads. In order that all the industries Ai.-dmma. whether in Iron, coal, nianu fHctnrlnir. lumber, lime, vegelahlex, mercantile, cotton or other agricultural products may lie luiiy ueyeiopeu, wt think it demonstrated that our beat in terests lie in leaving the transporta tion linos of the State free to act. witn nut heino- subject to the controlling In fluence of lixed laws, which In the na ture of thlugs, cannot foresee necessi ties which must ariso rroin time time, owing to the various and peculi; entiiliUons at different periods. to Wo believe it Is lietter to let thfl matter of rates of freight rest entirely in the h inds of transportation lines, especially so until such time as tho general irovernment may see fit through Its Congress to attempt some advisory control over the same. We therefore respectfully urge upon voiir Honorable body not to enact any law which will Interfere with tho freti-dom of commerce, and to ask that )ou use every effort to prevent the passage of (lending or similar tuns.
