To make certain that new capital will be attracted to the expansion of railroad facilities, there ought to be greater certain ty that a fair return will be earn ed en the Inveetment. 3. The morning of weak and strong roads Into large competing systems should be encouraged, The muklnir of a formula to pro ride a fair return on railroad capital seems likely to be the pbtat of Hit problem most thoroughly debated Id Con t reus.
