Letter from William H. Moody to Theodore Roosevelt

Description:

Attorney General Moody writes concerning the issue of rebates being granted by the Atchison, Topkea and, Santa Fe Railway Company to the Colorado Fuel and Iron Company. Moody writes that it may be assumed that the transportation of coal at less than the published rate is in contempt of the restraining order of 1902. However, he does not believe any proceedings should be brought against any officers of the railroad company, including E. P. Ripley and Paul Morton, unless there is evidence linking them to guilty conduct.

Letter from John Revelstoke Rathom to Theodore Roosevelt

Description:

John Revelstoke Rathom responds to President Roosevelt's recent request for a statement regarding the sentiments "for and against the making of railroad rates through Governmental agency." Rathom acknowledges his own stance in favor of the railroads but assures Roosevelt that the words presented are a true statement in regard to "a side of this great subject that I do not believe has yet been adequately presented." Rathom highlights the circumstances surrounding the "Bacon Convention" in Chicago led by E. P. Bacon in showing that the business community, although not necessarily friends of the railroads, are largely against the principle of governmental regulation.
