have at its "command an additional
$24,000,000, for its public works. These
charges are mainly for franchise taxes
and repairs made by the city on ac
count of the various street and elevat
ed lines. Of this vast sum, the lines
controlled by August Belmont are
nearly two-thirds. The debt of the
Metropolitan street railway and its
allied lines is just short of ten mil
Han dollars for franchise taxes, and
it has an additional indebtedness to
the city for street paving and repairs
for the various years since 1896 of
$3,400,000. The Manhattan railway,
for franchise tax and interest, owes
more than six million dollars, and the
Brooklyn Rapid Transit, on the same
account, is indebted to the city in the
sum of two ard three quarters mil
lions. If the incoming legislature in
vestigates street railways, as it pos
sibly may, these figures may be in
quired into, together with the reasons
for their being so long over looked by
city officials.
