'CsTerlng no suggestion how to apportion
,rthe earnings and cost of operating a rall
M road to th various states for th purpose
of ' making up the valu of th various
' roads. Chairman Wlnnett of th Stat
Hallway commission has written a letter
. to the Interstate Commerce commission
protesting; against the "constructive mile
age" mentioned In the letter by. th Inter
state commission. This constructive mlla
ge, It was' explained In th letter, waa
allowing one state more mileage than It
really had because of the extra cost of
construction or cost of maintenance and
operation. Dr. ' Wlnnett figures that It
Would be all right to s-lv railroads an
added value In state where construction
costs mora than In other state, but when
It comes to earnings, ha la opposed to the
constructive mileage. H la of th opinion
that Nebraska should lost none of tbe
earnings to which It Is entitled because of
Its mileage, to help some other state whose
railroads run through a mountainous coun
try. In a prairie state like Nebraska, he
ngures tn trains can haul much more
tonnage at tha same coat and that that
more than makes up for ' the extra cost
of roads In a state full of mountains and
Mils. He auggesta that tha constructive
mileage be eliminated When It comes to
apportioning the earnings of railroads on
Interstate business.
