JOLT FOR ELLCIRICITY BOOSTERS
Reasons Whr the Controller Handle
Will Never Take the Place of
Throttle Lever on Main
Boosters of electric motors rarely pass
up a chance to Hons farewell bouquet at
the "doomed steam locomotive." With
skill In word painting they picture the
monarch of the rail receding before the
electric locomotive, and the controller
handle superseding the throttle lever as a
symbol of moving power. This Idea has
been worked so diligently that train oper
atives entertain fears of vanishing Jobs..
Robert H. Rogets undertakes to banixh
that fear In a forceful paper In the Rail
roud Man's Magaxine. The writer supplies
facts and statistics to prove why the steam
locomotive will stay Indefinitely. He says,
As the title of this article Implies, it is
Intended to be reassuring to those who look
for sudden changes in railroad operation.
With that end In view, It may be best pre
faced with a few timely statistics. These
indicate that 3,233 locomotives were built in
1909. and although this total Is less than In
former years, It nevertheless shows a
healthy addition to the total steam rolling
stock of the country.
Though the slxe and hauling capacity of
locomotives continues to steadily Increase
every year, the outlook for 1910 points to at
least 6.000 engines. Through their greater
development these will easily equal In
power the 6,265 produced In the banner
The mere mention of statistics Indicating

and because they have hesitated to commit
themselves one way or the other. Besides
these causes of delay, the presentation of
such statistics has not been forthcoming,
for the very natural reason that thero were
few to offer.
With very few exceptions, the railroads.
not deceived by the optimistic claims and
the enthuslaslsm which greeted the elec
erlc locomotive, have largely preferred to
play a waiting game. The g-eneral policy
was to let somebody else take me initia
tive, and make the mistakes Inseparable
from any such drastic and costly meta
morphosis. A Pioneer In Electrification.
For a long time the Baltimore 4 Ohio
railroad, which has been the pioneer in
heavy electric- traction, was very olosely
scrutinised, and there Is little doubt that
what happened there largely dictated the
policy of other rosds In going to electrifica
tion. This road, in 1895, through tne latter
medium, began the operation of all pas
senger and freight trains from Camden
station, via the new "belt-line" tunnel under
the city of Baltimore, to Its northern
limits, a distance of about two miles.
This departure was on a scale of startling
maa-nitude for the times, as It Implied the
complete surrender of the steam motive
power In the territories mentioned.
The details of the experiment naa oeen
planned with exacting care, and It was
wonderfully successful almost from the
first day. Those early motors handled with
east the heaviest freight trains, lnoludlng
always the engines of the latter, which
were of no assistance as they were not
allowed to use steam in the tunnel.
Although the records are somewhat haxy,
the writer's notes, gathered during active
participation In that period. Indicate that

Although admittedly successfu and thor
oughly economical! this line was too short
for any definite conclusions as to the rea
value of such an equipment Hence little
progress was made during th ensuing sight
year up to 1903.
During this Interval there was a notable
extension of electricity to municipal and
suburban line, particularly to city cable
roads; but this work ha no bearing on
what has been done toward changing trunk

the effect of the change on steam railroad

Solving- the Smoke Problem.
The full realisation of these two pleasing
features eventually Inclined the New York
municipality to th consideration of a aim
liar system to be effected In that city for
relief from the smoke arising from the
engines of the New York Central and th

roads, hoth of which use the Pa'k avenue
tunnel teten the Grand Central station
and Eighty-ninth street.
When the agreement was entered Into be
tween the city of New York and the New
York Central lines It called only for the
opi ration ; train by electricity through
the Park avenue tuum-l. but tne railroad
company, from a broad standpoint, con
cluded that the electric- traction snnuld be
extended to embrace not only the remainder
of Its passenger lines In New York City
lying to the north of the tunnel, but also
extending out Into Westchester county for
i distance of from twenty-five to thirty
miles from the Grand Central terminal.
In reaching this conclusion it was also
derided that the safety of the puolic be
better guarded by the elimination of grade
crossings in the cities and towns along Its
right-of-way. In almost every instance the
local governments co-operated with this
policy; but regardless of the strenuous ef
forts of all concerned, the proposed Im
provements north of the limits of Greater
New York came to a standstill because of
the lack of unity between the railroad and
the board of railroad commissioners.
Why electrification Falls.
Consequently, the New York Central was
temporarily forced to fix the northerly
limits of its electric tone at High Bridge
on the Hudson division and Wakefield on
the Harlem division, seven and thirteen
miles, respectively, frdm the Grand Central
terminal. This Interruption to the com
pany s plans occurred in 1900 and many
adjustments have since been made. The
ultimate termini will be at Croton or Peek
skill oi the Hudson division and North
White Plains on the Harlem division.
The New York, New Haven & Hartford
railroad, being a tenant of the New York
Central between Woodlawn and New York,
a distance of about eleven mile, was also
forced to provide an electric equipment be
tween these points, but with similar ex
pansive policy decided to extend Its electric
lone to Stamford, Conn., thirty-seven miles
from the Grand Central station, which gives
it the longest electrically-operated main
line in the country.
So much for what has been done in trunk
ne electrification since the Baltimore &
Ohio broke the Ice in 1S95. The grand total
of less than 100 miles of road (not of track)
converted from steam to electricity In fif
teen years should not occaton any particu
lar alarm to the men of th steam road.
This mileage doe not Include unimpor
tant steam lines which may have been con
verted In that period, although there are
very few even of these. Most of them were
transformed Into trolley roads and' the
change has no bearing on trunk line condi
The cost Incidental to converting this in-
siglnlficant number of miles to electric
traction has been enormous. It Is doubtful
If 825,000,000 would cover It In the aggregate.
These were old railroads, well organised,
and thoroughly equipped with steam re
Heavy Cost of Installation.
Th change they made compelled them to
take on a vast number of skilled mechanics
hitherto not employed, without appreciably
diminishing th ranks of the regular em
ployes. A th percentage of mile electri
fied is so small compared - with th total
railroad mileage, there haa been no reduc
tion In the number of locomotives required,
and each road has added materially to It
steam equipment slnoe th partial electrifi
This tremendous Initial expenditure con
stitutes the prohibitive feature against the
electrification of present day steam rail
roads. While there are a few Instance In
this country where the Chang would be
permissible from a financial standpoint In
no case would It be undertaken without the
assurance that an increase In net reoelpts
would follow sufficient to more than pay
interest on the extra capital Involved a
condition which 1 apt to prove extremely
unlikely. . k . . ,
In support of this view the recent com
ment of President Harahan of th Illinois
Central In a report on the proposed electri
fication of th saburban surfao of that
road la of Interest:
Our suburban trafflo I not sufficiently
dense to warrant the expense necessary to
electrify these lines, and It la evident that
even under electrification there would not
be an increase In trafflo sufficiently large
to offset the annual cost of operation. It

installed. It la not Justifiable either in whole
or In part."
So far as th denlty of th trafflo In th
above statement Is concerned. It may be
added that the suburban district of the
Illinois Central In Chicago cover about
fifty miles of road, and carries. In round
numbers, about 15,000,000 suburban passen
gers every year; an average of 41,150 per
day, or L700 In an, hour. Th net revenue
of this business as at present operated un
der steam, for th fiscal year ending June
30, 1909, wai 8109,712, and th estimated net
revenue under electric traction la 1284,7(15,
gain of 8175,053 in net revenue If elec
tricity should be Installed.
But before this can be realised there
must be an Initial outlay of 83,000,000 to
cover the cost of electrification, on which
th annual interest and depreciation can
be safely reckoned at 10 per cent or fSOO.000
a year. Deducting from this startling
amount th $175,058 saved through electrifi
cation, the annual deficit under electrical
operation Is ft24,957.
An increase of 100 "per cent in earnings
would not enable the suburban business of
this road to break even, should it be elec
trified. If the suburban, trafflo of the
Illinois Central is "not sufficiently dens
to warrant the expense," It I hard to see
how it could be undertaken by lea pros
perous road for whose use It has been

Mr. Kruttschnltt has this to say regsrdlng
the proposition to electrify the main line
of the Central Paclflo over the Flerras:
"We have found that it pays to make
haste slowly with regard to Innovations.

Is quoted with the following ncsHlmWtl.'
"The cost of everything elect rlfi Is tre

as they are, cost more than double tho
steam locomotives, which they replace,
and we must add tne cost of track prep

"The demnnd has frequently been made
that lines leading Into terminals should be
electrified. In some cases the same de
mand haa been rrmde in the case of cities
that are not terminals. Such a demand
would Involve two locomotive terminals,
one on each side of the city, with electri
fication of the space within the city limits,
a supply of special electric locomotives,
and the delay .consequent upon a double
"To offset the cost of this, there Is no
saving whatever In operation. On the con
trary, the operating cost is largely in
creased. Even if the railroads cottld stand
the burden of cost, it is quite certain that
the public Itself would not tolerate un
necessary delays of thi kind.
"Naturally the roads hesitate to under
take new electrifications, not only on ac
count of the expense, but also because it

mistakes of another and thus avoid costly
"While anything rf the kind Is possible
with an unlimited expenditure of money,
we do not hesitate to say that the time
has not yet come when such an enormous
outlay of capital would be justified by
the returns; and, further, we assert that
the capital thus diverted would be used
to better advantage in other directions."
No Cans for Alarm.
That these slowly cropping facts adverse
to the electrification of existing trunk lines
have received consideration is significantly
reflected In the thorough course of training
for apprentices which is now a feature on
the Erie, Santa Fe. New York Central,
Canadian Pacific, and many others. In the
various schedules for study and practical
Instruction there Is not an allUBlon to the
electric engine. Its construction, manage
ment or maintenance. The training as out
lined plainly discloses that the end In view
Is to fit the boy to cope with conditions
which could only prevail with steam loco
motives, and It would appear lnconslsent,
to say the least, with the advanoed motive
power Ideas of the present day, that the
expense of this elaborate Instruction would
be Incurred without the prospect of ulti
mate return in the shape of efficient ser
vice. Railroad are not exactly philanthropic
enterprises. Many of them supposedly pros
perous are stag-gering under heavy burdens
of taxation and unjust legislation, and an
Incessant fight I In order to make both
ends meet. Hence the policy of their man
agement Is keenly whetted to an apprecia
tion of the faots which this article has
summarised, and It I noped that the latter
are 'sufficiently convincing to delay even

It haa been shown that, while terminal
electrification pays In some cases, any fur
ther step in that direction should not occa
sion any concern to the present employes
of the steam roads. It would not indicate
doing away with shops, roundhouses or lo
comotives, and only a very slight reduction
In the immediate terminal repair force,
which would be more than compensated for
by large additions to the pay roll of men
qualified In electric locomotive maintenance.
The former locomotive engineers and fire
men of the New Haven road are now em

as for ten years In the school work. From
this experience 1 know what school teach
ing is and I will say frankly that 1 am
mighty glad I got out of it when I did. As
a stepping stone to something better,
school teaching is a most excellent thl:,g.
For the youth during the time he Is bud

It is not necessary for me to tell you not

nearly all of you are of the gentler sex.
School teaching, at best, is a profession I
In which one may spend more time, use
more energy and reap less reward than In
anything else. Take, for Instance, the man
who has spent his early years In preparing
for the teaching profession and who hus
then taught until he Is 45 or 50 years old,
Just when his years of experience, his
gathering of wisdom ought to Insure him a

'This condition arises from the weakness
and cowardice of teachers, for as a class,
they are the most cowardly people In our
civilization. They hardly dare move for
fear they will lose their position. I tell
you If 1 were a teacher again I would
make a desperate effort to get a combine
of the teachers and then strike against the
Injustice of it all. Why, Just think of It
we pay a great many of our teachers less
than 82 a day, while any uncouth, unedu
cated laborer can get from $2 to 84 a day
for digging In our back yard.
"I tell you It Is an outrage that any
person should be hired to teach our young
who Is not paid at least 85 a day, whether
she has three or twenty pupils. Advance
their wages and the teachers themselves
will develop abilities unthought of even In
their own fondest dreams. With the added
salary will come the added thought of re
sponsibility and much more worth than
the added salary would amount to.
"I have four children of my own and I
would be willing and glad to pay $100 for
each one per year to the teacher who
really feache them to be what they ought
to be. It Is time for our people to wake
up to the fact that the teacher Is the
most Important factor in the moral up
building, as well as In the mental training
of our children, and that to obtain excel
lent teachers we must pay enough and
enough cannot be less than 85 per day In
