A consolidation of ail the street railway

brought about within the neat year, if
the surmises of the mm who are inter
ested .n street railways iu Seattle prov*
to be well founded. Several influences are
now at work to bring about a consolida
tion under one ownership of all the rail
way properties in the city. The effort
U being encouraged by men who have
money invested Ui the i.m* and it U
believed will ultimately be successful.
Consolidation of the Seattle street rail
way lines has been talked of for three
years past, it has been the dream of
some men who have seen a possible op
portunity to float a great big enterprise
and make some money out of it. Several
spasmodic efforts have already been mads
to bring it about. The street railway men
of the city have agreed time and again
that consolidation offers the one solution
of the difficulties that have to be met
by the various lines of the city.
Just now the situation in street rail
way matters i 9 moat Interesting. More
than one pountlai factor is being worked
by those who hope to be able to handle
the proposition, it is in some respects a
struggle for existence, as, of course, every
general manager In ths city wants to
have hi friends ic power with the new
company which is to absorb all the old
The railway men say that consolidation
will not only be the salvation of the
roads, but that by the Introduction of
the transfer system the people of Seat
tle will be able to ride all over town for
one fare, and the infliction of having to
pay three or four fare# in going from one
of the cable lines to tne territory tra
versed by one of the electric roada wiil
be done away with.
The plans for consolidation are talked
of. The first is to bring the roads togeth
er and organize a committee, wh.ch shall
form a new company. It is proposed that
each road shall turn over i'.s property
and franchise to the n«*w company and
rece:ve In payment therefor a certain
amount of stock and bonds, the price
paid for the road to U? fixed by the com
The second plan, and one which appar
ently rinds more favor with owners of
railway securitl.s than any oth»r, l* far
the companies to sell out for spot cash
to the new company which would be
organized for the purpose of absorbing
all of the lines.

Yesterday a Post-Intelligencer reporter
was Informed by a man who jt believed
to be thoroughly posted on street railway
matters in Seattle, that the railroads of
the city cost the men who built them
W. 000,000. Of course, these figures must
be considered in connection with condi
tions wtat n the r..ads were built. The con
struction of street railway lines was be
gun !n Seattle when the Yesler avenue
line was built in ISW. The following two
years line* were built In every direction.
The building Impetus that followed the
great fire of June, lWiy, wan responsible
for the construction of miles of track,
part of which hss not paid operating ex
pons*a during the last few y ars I'rice
for labor and material during the years
when the roads of Seattle built were
the highlit known in the history of the
eiate. The road? could probably be built
today for lirt.e ovtr one-haif of the cost
of the linea.
"I believe that for spot cash the local
owner* of street railway securities would
bo wiling to sell out for much it % than
their interests coat them," said a well
j known etr-et railway operator yesterday.
"They would afntost be satisfied with
j half of the money they originally put into
! the properties, and would be willing. In
I my opinion, to waive the nt»-re*t on their
investment* for the past few years."
Consolidation will work in two days ac
cording to the street railway men. First,
it *vril cause a heavy reduction In the nurrv
her of employes In the general offices an<l
: power houses, and the abolishment of the
of departments, superintendents,
etc. Secondly, a system of tran*fers. with
> some new construction and the redrganiza
j tion of schedules will be part of any con
| soikiation system.
There was a time In Seattle when seven

house can do this work as well as five or
i si*. It Is asserted by m«-r> who are prac
tical tnat the operating ex (tense* of the
lines -ou'd be reduced very largely in this
i manner.
With a central plant ar,J a central of

whenever this consolidation i* brought
about. I know that the comp*rs;e» wiil
profit by - onsohdation and that t«e peo
ple of Seattle wii; get * better and a
cheaper service than they are now r«s
I Another factor la the proposed coaaett-
da!(on is the probability that within a
year or so. som« a( the power system*
which haw been planned to utilise the
streams in the vicinity of Seattle to traas
mu eiertrH-Uy to the city, will have been
and cheap power will be avail
able for operation the lines if street mil
way. The entrance of th;s factor into the
rttintlan will, it is bellexcd. tend to aoosl
er.«te the consolidation movement.
Parallel lines will be either abandoned
under consolidation, or operated on the
loop system. In some caiwa. It is stated
by wti who are posted on the situation.
n«>w lines will have to be built far Abort
distances. Schedules will be so arranged
that the number of the cars operated will
be lessened and yet the sendee supplied
will !>e better than before.
Several large Interests ire Involved la
Ihe present plans for consolidation. One
of the largest is the General Kleetrtc Com
twtny. which furnished the equipment for
the Th!rd -venw. the Grant street and The
Western avenue lines. The General Elec
tric Company sold out to the Electrical
Securities Syndicate Its holdings in the
tirant street line, but it Is believed that
the two companies are allied.
