Yet if'trsattl shall continue to increase aso proxihately as In the past and ooo-.* motive, car and track facilities shall b provided at the same rate as from 190t to 191, the year 1915 will see a tonnage vastly beyond the capacity of the car riers to handle it. The requirements for 1913 over 1910 Ia added locomotive power would be equivalent to 18,628 locomotives, the actual increase at current rate 6,807 locomnotives; freight cars, requirements 586,529, actual increase 255,215; passen ger-train cars, requirements 9,889, ac tual increase 5,557. Tle rate at which main and yard track has increased has steadily declined, having averaged less miles per annum 1904-1910 than 1901 1905, and still less 1907-1910. Car Surplus Meager. The car shortage and surplus reports as of January 17, 1012, show an aggre gate surplus of 102,479, aggregate short age 12,1;4. or a net surplus of 90,896, equivalent to only 4 per cent in ton nage, it is declared, 'would convert the net surplus into a not shortige. . "If the shippers," says President George A. Post, "are to have railway facilities commensurate with the tabu lone increase of tonnage for which they are demanding transportation, there must be expended during the half decade 1911-1916, over 88,500,000,000 for additions and $5,000,000,000 to maintain the plant as it existed at the end of 1910." The $8,500,000,000 for additions are shown In a table giving cost of the re quired quantity of new locomotives, cars, track, terminal facilities, increase in taxes and return on new capital. This money which the railways will have to spend 1911-1915 which they did not spend In any previous year. Other Vast Outlays. "These figures say nothing," the iulletin says, "of the return on se euritle* ne.es-i'y.tlfcaitatl Indreases in the amounts adequate to provide the facilities required; or of the vast ex penditures made necessary by elimina tion of grade crossings, or statutes, both state and federal, increasing op. erating expenses, such as those deal Ing with hours of labor, siue of cars, accident compensation and costly ~s vices for promoting safety." Labor cost per unit of railway service has increased. The number of traffic units (passengers carried one mile and tons of freight carried one mile) per $1 of compensation paid to railway employes fell 17.6 per cent 1900 to 1910. It is estimated that three or four bills relating to safety nwi vigorously urged upon congress will, ift passed, involve the expenditure within the next three or four years of about $1.400,000,000. The $5,000,000,000 for maintenance is found by assuming that thle ncrease in the cost of maintaining equipment, way and structures 1906-1910 over 1901-1905, will be at the same rate, 41.1 per cent for 1011-1915. r Must 8ell eeouritlesl ''",ere are," President Post ob. serves, "only two ways In which rall ways can secure the money they ought to spend in the public interest. They must earn It or raise it by sale of new securitles. Of course they cannot spend $8,500,0b0,000 in five years and take it out of earnings." It is shown that In the fiscal year 1910, a more active year In business than 1909, the not new securities Is sued to the public were $400,000.000 less than in 1909, and if fthe amount Issued In 1910, about $461,000,000, were to be Issued annually for five years ending 1915, the total amount issued would fall $1,950,000,000 short of the amoubts estimated eS necessary to be spent for the Items alone of additions to locomotives, cars, track, terrlinal facllties, taxes and return at current rates on the securities thus Issued.
