MISSOURI PACIFIC REPORT
President Gould Tells of Road's
- Increasing 1 Expenses.
In his' remarks to stockholders in th<=
annual report of the Missouri Pacific Ttail
■^a - i>n-gf. .r Gould, tliß president of the
road, amonsf oth^r things; saj^s:
"The Ftcadilj- increasing Pxp<=>ns«»F, which
to an extent are beyond the power of the
management to control, have bf»com« a
v»ry serious factor in railway operationF-
Materials and Fupplies entering into the
or>^ration and maintenance arp obtainable
only at a constantly increasing cost. De
mands for higher v/ag-es or. account of
the Increased cost of living have been
made by the railway employes' labor
Tinionp. and after being submitted to arbi
tration under the federal statutes governing
such Dia:ter= increases ha.ye been awarded.
Other very large expenses are required in
oomplj'ing with federal' and state regula
tions. «nacted within recent >»-ar>-. The.
■"'■■ way ■--.: increases in expenses can
be mot, with a proper maintenance of
the property and a fair return to . the
stockholders," is by an advance in transpor
tation charges, and this is difficult of ac
complishment by reason of adverse senti
ment of the public and unfavorable action
of constituted authorities tending to. the
st:!l further reduction of the rates now
charged.
"As stated in former report?, it is only
by fair and reasonable treatment by pub
lic authorities that the railways will be
enabled to subserve the public interests.
There is no gainsaying the statement that
if the railway carriers are not allowed for
services rendered adequate compensation
•- f. able them to properly operate and
maintain their properties and to establish
and sustain a basis of credit for financial
transactions that w:il enable the owners
to improve and enlarge their facilities and
thus nice* the development of the coun
try's business resources, the public will in
the end be the greatest sufferer."
The company's statement for the year
ended June 30. 1910, which is the first since
the nierginsr of the various subsidiary com
panies in the new Missouri Pacific Rail
■na;- and the St. Louis. Iron Mountain &
Southern Railway, gives the combined re
solts of the two latter roads, and compares
