The Equitable Course
The Equitable Course.
If a man was not willing to give the page 20 railways the capacity, by conveying his high-rate goods as they had done in the past, to continue carrying those low-rate goods, he was not entitled to stand in with his neighbour and enjoy the same rates on his low-rate goods as his neighbour. A great deal of reflection had led him to the conclusion that that was not only equitable as between individuals, but the best way in which the railway position could, apart from legislative action, be guided in this country along the lines of stopping the increase in the difference on account of revenue and expenditure.
