STOP, LOOK THE DANGER TO GRADE C OBSERVE THE WARNING-I Washington, D. C.-Tho following lettor has been addressed to the pub lic by Mr. Fairfax Harrison, president of Southern Railway Company: "Tho automobile has greatly In creased tho comfort and convenience of life, and lt baa been an important factor in tho improvement of country highways and BO has contributed to tho progress of civilization of our time, but, just as the railroad did when it revolutionized commerce, tho t 'omoblle has introduced new social complications and new risks, moral as well aa physical. "The American people are said to bo characteristically reckless of hu man life, and perhaps in nothing is this statement more justified at thc moment than in relation to tho UBO of automobiles-not even the railroads?. My particular interest in the ques tion ie, where my public responsibility Iles, in the combination ot the two in the accidents which occur to auto mobiles and their occupants where highways cross railways at grade: and this 1B a question of sufficient import ance to warrant the attention of every thinking man In the South. Record For One Year ; "The following tablo shows the ap palling record of such accidents on lines operated by Southern Raliway Company in the South during tho year ended June 30, 1915. H ill?? ll al ll s|| .Po ea 3 o H 3 3 ;> Alabama. Georgia. North Carolina.. South Ourollna. Tennesseo. Virginia-. 2 li 0 21 2 IT 0 8 Total. 12 fiS "Without seeking to avoid Just re sponsibility for what tho officers or employees of the railroad do or omit, but recalling that a railroad employee whose carelessness causes an acci dent is, in the puollc Interest, subject to discipline which affects bis liveli hood, it ls probably fair to say that a largo proportion of these accidenta happened sole'7 through the careless ness of the drivers of automobiles, or their lack ot experience In dealing with vehicles at high speed. There are among them also well authenticat ed cases of deliberate assumption of risk by the drivers ot automobiles from pure love ot excitement and ?peed, evidenced by racing with trains and seeking the thrill of a narrow es cape. Our englnemen report such oc currences daily. If fortunately they are without fatal consequences in the great majority of cases, they are al ways paid for by a heavy strain on the nerves ot all concerned, particu larly those ot the locomotive engineer, who maintains speed from duty and not tor fun. lt ls not too much to claim tor the locomotivo engineer a larger equipment of experience and a greater habit of precaution than the average automobile driver. Aa a class the locomotive engineers are sober, steady and conservativo men ot long experience In meeting and avoiding risks, for theirs is a dangerous occu pation. Their every effort ot charac ter, ot instruction and ot interest is to avoid an accident Most of the ac cidents te automobiles at raliway grade ero aa I noa could be avoided if there waa the same restraint of ex perience . and attention at th? wheel of the automobile as at tho throttle af the locomotive. < Public Vitally Inte reatad "It does not suffice the publie in any moral sense that the fund made up of the revendes collected by the railroad la usually made to respond fa damages for consequence/, of auch accidenta. Suicide to collect life in sure?as 'Bas aever beoa deemed hon orable, while no one would deliberate ly aaU the Ufa of a mother or wife, AND LISTEN AUTOMOBILES AT R?SSINGS DON'T INVITE THIS FATE. non or brother for money; on tho other hand, the collection of duniageB out of railroad revenues, as a punishment for an avoidable accident, when there can be no real compensation, i's an economic waste; it punishes the pub lic more than it punishes the stock holders, as lt deprives the public by exactly the amount of thc damages of the ability of the railroad to 'pro vide additional permanent facilities for the uso or convenience and safety of the public. Given the progressive policy of Southern Railway Company to make such improvements to the extent of its ability? lt is of interest to note that, in the last year a divi dend was paid by the Company, 8.80 cents of every dollar of revenue col lected from the public went in pay ment of damages of all kinds, prac tically tho samo amount, 3.88 cents, went to the stockholders, while only thlrteen-hundredthe of one cent ol each dollar of revenue could be ?ap plied on permanent' . improvements. Such other Improvements ss Were mode were necessarily charged to now capital, thereby increasing the de mands on the fund In Which the pub lic has BO vital an interest. It would bc the pleasure of the management always to apply as much of tho rev enues on permanent Improvements as on dividends, it that-was possible. There is,' then, a basis of interest as troll as of morals for co-operation be tween the public and the railroads to prevent the recurrence of these trag edies. "With a deep sense of the respon sibility of management in this mat ter and pledging this Company to do everything in its power which is rea sonable and consistent with the func tions for which it was chartered, I ap peal to tho public generally for such co-operation in avoiding these serious and distressing accidents. In practical ly all cases they can be, and in most cases are, readily and easily avoided by the automobile driver acting upon the familiar warning to stop, look and listen at railway crossings. While familiarity with the crossing sign posts and the regular schedules ot trains may breed contempt of danger, 6urely every one of us when using a highway can afford to sacrifice enough of bin time and his pride of opinion to have a practical assurance of safe ty. On the other hand, the demands of commerce and of public transpor tation do not permit a railroad to atop all its trains at all highway crossings: if that waa possible it would be cheap er for the railroad to do so than to pay the damages. It is clear, ho,/ever, that lt ls necessary that one or the other of the parties to a crossing shall stop if tho largest measure ot protec tion of life and limb and property ls to be secured, lt not from self-inter est, can not the automobile driver yield tho precedence ss a matter of courtesy to age, for the railroad ls older than the automobile! Eliminating Grade Crossings "The Ideal of safety will be accom plished only when all grads crossings of railroads are separated. In this respect Southern Railway Company ls doing something every year amt as much as ita resources and other obli gation!) make possible: indeed, lt may be claimed that the Company la, speaking generally, unking progress more rapidly than rn oft municipalities which have an obligation in the prem ises: but by co-operation of munici palities and railroads many dangerous crossings have been eliminated throughout the Sooth? and more wilt be every year. Furthermore, on every blt ot construction work of Southern Raliway Company now in progress, or recently completed, involving the re location or double tracking ot line (nearly four million dellars has been spent on such work during the ps it year), revision bas boen made at largo additional oxpsase to sep?rete all important highway crossings of the revised line, wherever physically prac? ticable, and this policy will be contin ued for the future. "Olven the history of our transpor tation and highway systems and the enormous cost of adjusting them to modern conditions, the elimination of grade crossings is and in the very nature of the problem must be a grad ual development with the growth of population und wealth, but, meanwbilo. Rood judgment on the part of all con cerned can do much to untlclpate the benefits of tho admittedly desirable expenditure of large sums of money. The same sober sense of responsibil ity for life on the part of automobile drivers which actuates most locomo tive engineers, and In addition the willingness of the automobile driver in such a high interest to subordinate his time and convenience to that of the greater number represented by a railroad train, can check a waste ot life and limb and property which is now increasing every year. "To this ?nd I appeal confidently for the counsel of every responsible man and woman In the 8outh, whether or not he or she drives an automobil*. Wcrds of caution and common sense around the family dinner table can have more influence and can save more lives at raliway grade croaalngs than all thc warning whistles ever blown by a locomotive engineer." SOUTH AS GRAIN 8ECTION EXPLOITED BY SOUTHERN Atlanta, Ga.-The superlative' ad vantages of tho South as a grain pro ducing section will be given great promlncnco lu exhibits which South ern Railway, Mobile and Ohio Rail road, Georgia Southern and Florida Railway, Virginia and Southwestern Railway, and affiliated lines will make at thirty state, district and county fairs in the North and Middle Wost during the coming falL An especially fine collection of gralnH will be Bhown while thc grass es and forage ci^p:! exhibited will bo of very high character. From tho wheat growing section of thc South, grain sheaves will be shown from fields yielding as high as 40 bushels to the acre, and the character of oth er exhibits will be In keeping. The fruits and vegetables to bo shown In jars Include a wide variety. These exhibits come from various districts of the entire territory serv ed by Southern Railway and affiliated Unes in Virginia, North and South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Mississippi, Tennessee and Kentucky. They will be shown in Pennsylvania, New York, Indiana, Michigan* and Il linois and each exhibit will be attend ed by agents, well equipped to tell callers about the various sections ot the South. The first two exhibits will be shown at lairs in Indiana. For all fairs in eis Middle . West a special exhibit ht has been provided, arranged so that a large number of people can eeo the exhibit at the same time. Throughout many of the states the Southern Raliway exhibit bas become well known and is looked for. SPLENDID RECORD 18 MADE IN HANDLING OF PASSENGERS Atlanta, Ga.-More than sixteen and a half million passengers-a number greater than the combined population of Virginia, North Carolina, South Car olina, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee and Kentucky-were transported by Southern Railway during the year end ed June 30 with only one fatal injury to a passenger while on a train and that one was standing on a car plat form in direct violation ot tho com pany's rules. Thia excellent record was shown in the official figures given out indicat ing the high degree of safety that has been attained in tho handling ot Southern r.-..lway passenger trains. In marked contrast are figures re cently given out by President Fairfax Harrison of Southern Raliway, show ing that during the samo period twelve persona riding in automobiles were killed in accidenta at publia highway crossings, every dne of which accidents could have been prevented bad the driver ot the car observed the familiar warning, "Stop, Look and Listen." 80UTHERN ELIMINATING MANY GRADE CR088INQ8 Danville, Va-In connection with the double track work which lt haa had under way in Virginia and North Carolina during the past fiscal year on 102.4 miles of ita Atlanta-Washington Une, Southern, Railway has eliminated 64 out of 78 grade crossings. By th: building of underpasses 20 were elim inated, by overhead bridges 19, and by changing the direction of publio highways 16. The 19 which remain are so located sa to make their elimi nation physically Impossible or they involve prohibitive damages' to abut ting . property. In all construction work involving the relocation or double tracking of Its Unes the fixed poUcy of Southern Railway Company 1? to separate all Important highway crossings of the revised lines wherever . practicable. Though thu policy means large addi tional expense, such expense le under taken as a permanent investment for safety. Southern Railway baa also co-operat ed with municipal sad county author ities In the elimination of many dan gerous crossings on other* of its Unes throughout the South. It has devoted to work of this character as mach as tts resources and other obligations maka possible and President Fairfax Harrison has announced that tala pol icy will be continued. . ". \ ''.
