Note
  • Warning of "the danger of railroad domination" and the need to elect "firm men in the General Assembly--men who can neither be bought, frightened nor cajoled into the service of these corporations, and whom the wealthy stockholders in Providence cannot induce ... to desert the interests of their constituents."
  • Signed: Justice
  • The Stonington Railroad was the local name for that part of the New York, Providence and Boston Railroad connecting Providence, R.I., and Stonington, Conn., which, between 1851 and 1854, was accused by the Rhode Island General Assembly of discrimination and inequality in establishing its fares. For another broadside concerning distribution of free tickets by officials of the Stonington Railroad as a means of winning the favor and influence of state legislators, cf. Narragansett (Writer). Railroad reform, from the Providence daily post, September 5th, 1854, Providence, 1854
