A Railway Reform Wanted





Railways, Charlatanry, Politics, Government

    Responds to an extract from the Pall Mall Gazette which attributes the strength of railway companies to the fact that so many directors are members of Parliament, while those statesmen who have no railway connections are indifferent to such matters. Urges that these facts should be considered by electors before casting their votes at the next election, and that nobody should vote for a railway director. Concludes by calling for an act for the 'Abolition of Directorships of Railways'.
