The system wit fc which everything about
a railway line is watched nowadays, though
only a specimen of the careful economy
with which nearly all of the older enter
prises are conducted Is highly Instructive as
showing the Intelligent, scientific effort to
reduce the cost of running expenses to its
lowest mark. The manner in which the
nse of one heavy item of expense, that of
coal, is watched, Is of itself interesting.
In each class of service, passenger, local
and through freights etc., the engineer is
allowed a certain amount of coal with which
he is expected to make the trip and a record
of his success or failure is kept in the Mu
ter Mechanic's office. The standard allow
ance is made in pounds per car mile and
varies from 11.1 pounds per car mile for
passenger trains in winter to four pounds
per car mile for through freights running on
schedule time in summer and drawn by
Pittsburg engines or engines of the "Amer
ican" type. The allowances now made by
the Ann Arbor road for summer and win
ter traffic are: passenger, 9 5 pounds in
summer, 11.1 in winter; local freight 6 and
0 5; through freight, schedule time Pitts
burg and American type locomotives 4 and
5.2; through freights, extras, 5 and 5.7.
The ten wheeled locomotives, though
really burning a larger amount of coal than
the smaller engines, burn a smaller amount
per car mile because they have so many
more cars on each trip that when the whole
amount of coal used, Is divided by the pro
duct of the number of miles run and tiie
number of cars drawn, the quotient is con
siderably smaller. This also accounts for
the seemingly high allowance per car mile
for passenger trains, the smaller number of
cars in a train making the quotient uausual
The latest method instead of using the
car mile as a unit uses a method of tonnage
which is even more accurate than the other
owing to the fact that many loads are ot
greatly varying weight. This system Is al
ready partly in use on the Ann Arbor road
and will probably be 'eventually adopted
though it involves a large amount of work
