Excerpt: ... APPENDIX. TABLE SHOWING DECLINE OF FREIGHT RATES IN THE UNITED STATES. The following table, compiled from official figures reported to a sub-committee on tariff of the United States Senate, by Mr. C. C. McCain, Auditor of the Interstate Commerce Commission, in 1893, shows the average freight rates per ton per mile charged by the railroads named in the years mentioned. These roads fairly represent the railway system as a whole. The marked decrease shown has, it should be said, been gradual year by year. It must not be forgotten by the reader that the astounding decrease in rates shown in the subjoined table is the outgrowth of the economic operation of railroads; is in response to natural causes; is in no way attributable to government pressure. It confirms all that is said throughout this book that rates of railroads, like the prices asked for other products, are self adjustive, and respond equitably to supply and demand. ROAD. TEAR.
