But it is an amazing confes- sion of impotence on the pert of tim police of New Jersey and o4' the country at large that kidnaling can be carried on without fear of punishment, as so many recent in- stances have proved. Perhaps the public indignation a- rising from this dramatic disclosure of the failure of our law-enforcement Jm and protective machinery may result in an anti-crime wave which will wipe out the shameful reputation our nation has earned by public indiffer- ence to crime. Perhaps we may see ". citizens taking the law into their ow hands, as in the old Vigilante ,! i days in San Francisco, and hanging (( I racketeers and gangsters from the I most convenient lampposts. Perhaps.'  # And then, perhaps nobody will do anything much about it. That is more likely, in view of our past history in such matters. - OPEN MIND AND THICK SKIN t Coming to nday morning,  with a heart full of peace and good will, I found two letters on ny deck. i "Sir: I long have been a reader of i t your pieces, hut your last editorial was the best you ever have witten. i I have cut it out and am going to frame it and hang it in my offle.e."

The guessing was embodied in the Rail- way Valuation Act of that year The principal guesses were: ( l ) the railroads could be valued in two */ears; 12) the total cost would be less than $3.000,000; (3) the rail- roads would be shown to be greatly over-capitaled: (41 the government would be enabled to regulate rates so as to yield the ailroads a fair return; (5} the users of transportation would save around $] .000.0C0 a day. Herc are t}c CorresPond, r' facts: (])the valuation, in progress e,ghteen */ears. is st;tl incomplete; (2 the cost to the taxpayers has been more than $40.000.000 and to the railroad-- and. throush them, to their patror more than }45.000.000; (3) the value of the railroads has been proved to be substantially greater than their capitalizatie: a the radroads have not been a}lowed to earn a fair return; {5) no public saving has resulted.
