Main 875 NORTHWESTERN SHIPBUILDERS SAY: VOTE "YES" AND BUY CAR LINES Seattle, Washington, November 1,1918. Honorable Ole Hanson, Seattle, Washington. Dear Mr. Mayor: It is perfectly evident to us that some solution of the transportation difficulties of this city must be reached promptly. Without giving any analytical consideration to the prob lem—as to whether the city would make or lose money on the purchase of the traction facilities—we are convinced that the service required cannot be complied with by the present Traction Company at its franchise rates, and the larger and controlling factor is the necessity of adequate service, not only now, but in the future development of the city. There is also no doubt in our minds that the price pro posed to pay the Traction Company is as reasonable as an ad justment of this kind could be under the circumstances, and it is not to be disputed either that it is undoubtedly a good bargain for the Traction Company, considering the comparatively short life of their franchise. We agree with you further that the citizens can afford to pay for commensurate service and this will promote prosperity in their behalf, in preference to continued dicker ing and restricted service, which will evidently be compul sory under the operation of the traction facilities by its present owners. May we be permitted to compliment you on your dili gence in behalf of the municipality in effecting this ar rangement? The facts, as stated to us, of the transaction are evidently mutually equitable. We are also convinced that in the future development of the city, the physical value and potential earning capacity warrant the assumption that the price of fifteen million dollars is not exorbitant for the value received. Our association, which is composed of the following members in Seattle: Ames Shipbuilding & Drydock Company, Commercial Boiler Works, J. F. Duthie & Company, Seattle North Pacific Shipbuilding Co., Skinner & Eddy Corporation, Todd Dry Docks, Inc., wish to go on record as approving the purchase of the street car system by the city upon the. terms and at the price agreed upon. Yours very truly, ASSOCIATION OF NORTHWESTERN SHIPBUILDERS, By C. H. Hamilton, chh-hmm President. Paid for by the Association of Northwestern Shipbuilders.
