It was vehemently argued that this mode of conveyance would be fatal to the breed of horses and to the noble art of horsemanship ; that the Thames, which had long been an important nursery of seamen, would cease to be the chief thoroughfare from London up to Windsor and down to Gravesend ; that saddlers and spurriers would be ruined by hundreds ; that numerous inns, at which mounted...
Page 190 - There is coming a neck-and-neck contest between European countries and the United States for lucrative connections with the outlying regions. There is also coming a later and grander contest between both America and Europe, on the one hand, and Asia and Africa on the other, for the command of the traffic of the world.

We must set about finding out what the real abuses are, with their causes, and to what extent remedies can be applied.
Page 15 - State should not only be strictly just, but scrupulously fair, and in its relations to the citizen every legal and moral obligation should be recognized. This can only be done by legislating without vindictiveness or prejudice, and with a firm determination to deal justly and fairly with those from whom we exact obedience. I am not unmindful of the fact that this bill originated in response to the demand of a large portion of the people of New York for cheaper rates of fare between their places of...
Page 12 - ... pearl ash, Pitch, tar, turpentine and the like. There remains to be noticed an objection to the encouragement of manufactures, of a nature different from those which question the probability of success. This is derived from its supposed tendency to give a monopoly of advantages to particula(r) classes at the expence of the rest of the community...
Page 15 - ... It is manifestly important that invested capital should be protected, and that its necessity and usefulness in the development of enterprises valuable to the people should be recognized by conservative conduct on the part of the State government. But we have especially in our keeping the honor and good faith of a great State, and we should s,ee to it that no suspicion attaches, through any act of ours, to the fair fame of the commonwealth.
