1916 Sutton Register comment of public ownership of railroad.

A major economic and political conflict 100 years ago was between the "little guy" and corporations. None was more intense than the conflict between farmers and the railroads.

This item from The Sutton Register in August, 1916 is a comment by publisher F. M. Brown along those lines. Public ownership of all railroads was seen by many (most?) as the answer.
