Excerpt from Government Ownership of Railways
In an earlier book entitled “The American Transportation Question,” the author has discussed the railway problem of the United States as it presents itself if it be assumed that the policy of private ownership of railways is to be maintained. The present work has two purposes. One is to give information as to the comparative results of private and public ownership and management of railways in various leading and typical countries. Its other, and main, purpose is to try to direct serious consideration to the question of what – in view of the experience of other countries with state ownership and management, and of the conditions existing in the United States – would probably be the results of the adoption of government ownership and management of railways in this country.
The subject of government ownership of railways is not without timeliness in the United States. In a way, it is always timely; for it is always the subject of more or less discussion. And, if private management and public regulation of railways in this country should ever be decided to be a failure, government ownership would be the only alternative; and never were private management and public regulation more distinctly on trial than they are at present. Furthermore, Congress, at the time this book is being finished, is considering a plan for the construction by the federal government of over Too miles of railways in Alaska at an estimated cost of $35,000,000 to $50,000,000.
