Another Line 5f Comparisons.
(Issued Under Authority of the Railroads of Nebraska )
In our former articles we have made comparisons
showitiff the relative afcscRsraent of railroad property
with other property in the state of Nebraska. We
will continue to make these comparisons. They will
show that the railroads have paid proportionately
more taxes than any other interest in the state, but to
complete the line of comparison, it will be necessary
for tis to show that the railroads of Nebraska have
paid as much or more than other roads in the Trans
No mati-r how taxes against railroads are col
lected, whu.-er by excise or direct taxation, the gen
eral average shows practically the same. With the
railroads it is immaterial to them what the assessed
valuation of their property should be ao lon as they
are not required to pay an undue amount per mile to
meet the requirements of taxation, and not in unfair
proportion to other property.
From the Inter-State Commerce Commission re
port for l'JOO, we find that there were 83,175 miles of
railroad lyinjf west of the M:ssissippi river. These
railroads paid $M,3U. 109 for taxes, which makes an
average of $171.45 per mile. These fiffurea include
every state and territory west of the Mississippi river,
excepting the Indian Territory, where the tax on
railroads, beinff but 10.H6, is so low that we do not
include the sum in our estimates. If wc did it would
make the foregoing amount per mile a few dollars
In this territory the average net earning of all
the railroads amounted to 12,784 per mile.
In determining the value of the railroad property
there ate several essentials that must be considered.
First: The volume of business that can be given
Second: The difficulties of operation.
Third: The tariffs allowed to be charged.
These three features must he taken into conjunc
tion in any estimate that should be made regarding
the value of the railroad property as an investment.
A comparison of the railroads of Nebraska with
thoae of New York, Pennsylvania and Maryland
would be misleading unless these elements were
taken into consideration. In these states the rail
roads were furnlahed tonnage that enabled them to
handle 1,9110,579 tot of freight and 202,902 passengers
for each mile of railroad, while In this Traus-Misaisa-itipi
country, the railroads were furnished but 378,300
tons per mile and but 49,814 passengers as reported in
A comparison of Nebraska railroads with thosof
Massachusetts would be senseless, because in Neb
raska there are 53.31 milcja railroad to serve each
10,000 people, while in MaxV ls there are but
7.SS for the same number; or, wsx Iw Jersey4 which
has 29.'J9 miles of railroad to eachWisfiiire miles of
territory, while Nebraska has but 7. jever, in
the comparisons we will select sectionsNnrajlroad
in Nebraska which have a larije business, and we will
pick out some eastern roads that handles approxi
mately the like character and volume of business and
make the comparison with those roads, showing the
taxes that they pay and the tax that is pair! here. It
will be found that in those instances the roads of
Nebraska pay relatively higher taxes than they
should be called upon to do.
The critics who make a comparison of the tax per
mile charged in the District of Columbia, with that
charged on western railroada, evidently intend to de
ceive, from the fact that the city of Washington has
outgrown the District of Columbia, and the 52 miles
of railroad which are reported in that district are
practically all city property. A comparison of a Neb
raska railroad with the New York Central, a four
track railroad with $57,000,000 worth of equipment
alone, would not be fair, but we will give the people
of Nebraska the details of taxation in these other
states, for the purpose of letting them make their own
conclusions and judge whether the railroads in Neb
raska are paying their just share of tax, when com
pared with other railroads.
There are but a few states in the Union In which
the railroads pay 15 4 per cent of the taxes paid while
in the territory west of the Mississippi the railroads
in Nebraska pay more per mile than si xteao of the
other states. Three mining states oblige the rail
roads to pay more than they do in Nebraska, hut it is
a well known fact that tax levies in minlDg counties
are much higher than in aor other localities in the
Our ststeinent will show what the railroads pay
to each county the average rate per mile, and from
these you will be able to judge whether the people
are being treated fairly In thia mutter.
There is no neceaeitjr to coii'-eal anything on the
part of the railroads, as they have borne and bear
their just share of the Uses.
