Thirty-Nine Lines Suffer
Loss of $12,000,000
in a Year
Washington, Nor. 26. W. C. Maxwell,
general traffic manager of tlie Wabash
railroad, in a statement before the in
terstate commerce commission yester
day morning in the advanced rate case,
. declared that 39 railroads operating in
central freight association territory with
31,937niiles of line in 1913, while show
ing 'a gross increase in operating reve
nues of $78,000,000 over 1910, neverthe
less after paying operating expenses and
taxes suffered ft loss of $12,000,000 in
operating income.
"This result," added Sir. Maxwell, "is
due to an increase in the ratio of oper
ating expenses and taxes to gross as be
tween 1910 and 1913 from 72 to 78 per
cent., and thus showing was made de
spite the fact that large sums of new
capital were invested in additions and
"Besides the loss in net revenue of the
year ended June 30, 1913, as compared
with 1910, the figures for thirty-five
roads for the months of July, August
and September, 1913 show a decrease in
net operating earnings of .$0,937,353, or
approximately 20 per cent." 1
In addition to tables covering figures
for all roads in this territory, Mr. Max
well directed special attention to the
condition of a special group of roads
which, as claimed by F. A. Delano in
bis opening statement the previous day,
were more particularly representative
Df the "whole situation-' in central (
freight association territory. This group
embraces twenty-eight roads with 23,
167 miles of track, or 61.5 per cent, of
the entire mileage in the territory, and
including such important lines as the
"liig Four" system, Vandalia, Chicago &
Eastern Illinois, Grand Rapids, Illinois
Central, Chicago & Alton and Wabash
railroads. !
In 1913 roads in this group earned
$(53,000,00 more than in 1908, which is
known as the panic year, and operating
expenses and taxes were $02,000,000
more, Net earnings, after paying ex
penses and taxes, were only $811,000
more than in 1908.
The net corporation income of these
properties was actually $8,000,000 less
than in 1908, although during this five
year period $180,000,000 new capital was
, put into these properties.
In 1913 the roads in this group earned
$30,000,000 more than in 1910; operat
ing expenses and taxes were $45,000,000
more than in 1910, and the net after op
erating expenses and taxes decreased 9,
500,000. The corporate income decreased
almost $17,000,000.
If in 1913 the railroads in this group
bad been able to operate at the same
ratio as in 1910, their net income, after
Jiaving taxes, would have been almost
If 1 8,000,000 more than it was. The in
erease in cost is largely in two items,
transportation and maintenance of
equipment. George M. Shriver, vice
president of the Baltimore 4 Ohio rail
road, took the stand when the hearing
resumed thin morning and finished tes
timony begun by him yesterday. .

this case that the judge issued his warn
ing as to the treatment other offen
