this value among the various states
and territories, shows the following
for Texas, New Mexico and Arizona:
, Texas Commercial value of railway
operating property, $237,718,000; per
cent of total for the United States,
2.114; rank of state, 16; assessed
valuation, $95,209,785; ratio of assess
ed commercial value, (per cent), 40.0.
Arizona Commercial value, 68,356,
000; per cent of total for United
States, 0.608; rank of territory, 44;
assessed valuation, $6,667,349; ratio of
assessment to commercial value, 9.7.
New Mexico Commercial value,
$68,400,000; per cent of total for the
United States, 0.768; rank of terri
tory, 36; assessed valuation, $8,511,
638; ratio of assessment to commer
cial value, 9.9.
Pennsylvania ranks first with the
commercial value of Its roads, placed
The District of Columbia ranks
last, with a total valuation of $5,578,

In connection with the business of
transportation, the estimate placed
ujxm the woith of the properly re
garded as a business proposition, I.

factors di ternil' ins? the market alue
of railway pro rty are the expecta

of the property and the strategic sig

In computing the niH ea: nines for
this purpose, tuxes and operating ex
penses, hut not expenditures for Im

earnings; and Income of railway cor

erty not used In the business of trans
IKirtation was excluded, as was also
the income which accrues to a cor
poration from Investment In the cor
porate securities of other railways.
The value submitted was determ

a proper purchase price for the rail
ways of the United States, nor as a
basis for taxing these railway proper
ties, but as one step, In ascertaining
for the census bureau the total wealth
of the United States.
Whether or not the value, ($11,244,

the value upon which the railways of
the United States might properly be
taxed, depends upon whether the
state undertakes to tax the roads at
