Operating Expenses of B., A.
& P. Reduced One-third
Since Line Was Equipped
With Motors-Cox Writes
Story in Railway Age Ga
zette - Greater Tonnage
and Less Cars Make for
The Butte, Anaconda & Pacific rail
way, the first railroad in the country
to install a 2,400-volt direct current
apparatus for operation, shows a net
operating saving per year, due to the
electrical operation in preference to
steam, of $255,S89, according to figures
prepared by J. t. Cox and given in a
special article on "One Year's Elee
trical Operation of the t1., A. & P.."
which appears in the issue of the Rail
way Age Gazette of Decem her 235.
The following figures give an idea of
the saving from the use of electrictd :
Total operating expenses for 1911, tin
der steam, $742,553.54; operating ex
penses for 1914, under electrical power,
$473,825.42: saving, $2(9,725.12: per
tentage, 11.19.
Reduced Expenses.
''The total saving from loomotin
performtance alone is at the rate of
$237,581 per year, to whiih should iie
added the credit of hnidling itt itn
crease of traffic at the rate of
136 ton-miles per year, or 5.77 per cent
more than was handled ty the stiam
locomotives during the period cont
pared. To this saving from locomotitv
perforctance should be added the slt
ing from trainmenttts ages, ihich is
at the rate of $31,14t1 per year, or a
decrease of approximately 21 per cent,
due largely to the elimination of over
tine, making the total saving from
these two items $268,527 pIr year.
From this should be deducted $10,539
for maintenance of the distrilutintt
system, leaving $255,589 as the net op
crating saving per year due to elc
trical operation," says M!r. Cox.
Greater Economy.
Mr. Cox continues: ' ('Itparalite re
sults of the month of June, 1913, with
steam operation and for the same
month of 1914 with electrical operation
of this main line service, show that
with a slight increase in the total tons
of ore hauled the average tuns eer
train was increased from 1,761 to 2.,71,
or 35 per cent, thus decreasing the
average nittaer of trains icer day from
12.5 to 9.3, or 25.6 per cent. The tee'
age time per trip idurbig steamt opera -
lion was two hours and 15 xnin utes,
while with the electric locomotive it
was approximately one hour and 45
iniutes, showing a decrease of 4o mint
utes, orx 27.5 per rent. The overtime
in this service has breen decreased 73.5
per cent and the total time 42 per cent,
resulting not only in greater economy
to the railway, titt in shorter and ets
ier hours for the crews,"
The contract for the eleetrification
of the 1., A. & P. was let in December,
1911. (nii May 14. 1913, the first train
was run over the line operated hit elet
tric power. On e otter 1, 191", trtgt
lar passenger service between t utte
and Anaconda otis taken over for clxi'
trical operation. While the running
passenger time between Inttte and
Anaconda has been maintained at the
same speed under electrical is it was
under steam locomotion, it is said by
Mt. ('ox tha it 50 per cent reduction
in time is possiblt. The full electrical
service lois been ii operation now for
more0 than One year.

P. ltukrock. an alien, who had been
ordered deported to Montenegro, is the
problem that is baffling the Unrited
States authorities. Ialtrock tried to
secure his liberty by applying to the
federal court for a writ of habeas cor
pus. Judge George llourquin today
denied his petition. Although ltakrock
has been ordered deported to his na
tive country by the government, the
order tannot he executed because of
the European war. Whether to hold
the nan until the war is over or lib
crate him is the question with whichn
the immigration authorities are tyres
The law requires that an unesi
able alien te deported within three
years after he arrives in this country.
llakrock reached New York Feb
ruary, 1913, and has now been in the
I niled States 21 motihs. Should the
itar last longer than lebru ary, 191,
