Excerpt from A Reply by the Railroads to the Statement of the Post Office Department, on the Adequacy and Method of Pay to the Railroads for Carrying the Mails and Parcel Post: Presented to the Senate Committee on Post Offices and Post Roads, March 20, 1916 The Department also endeavored, in its pamphlet, to justify the attempt to obtain enactment of the Moon bill by making it a rider on the Post Office appropri ation bill. The Department's defense throughout was based upon a series of assertions, unaccompanied by proof. A careful examination of these assertions, the Rail roads believe, will show that they are not sustained by fact. In the following pages, the principal claims and assertions made by the Department are reprinted. The actual facts bearing upon the same are stated in parallel columns, in the form of answers.
