We ask what justice there is in the Railway Co. supplying good grain cars to load cord wood into the merchants while farmers grain is lying in the granaries till prices are away down for want for cars. We consider it an injustice for men to be allowed to lock cars for cordwood when farmer are asking for cars for to load grain. Some people want the whole earth.
