Mr, Thorno claims that their own re

rates must fall, so It Is asserted.
Tho inquiry inado by Mr. Thome goes
Into every phase of the' railroad gamo
and allied Industries. But tho main case
Is on tho question of adequacy of present
revenues. The carriers In tho eastern
district have demanded an increase ot h
per cent in ut freight rates In order that
they may continue to do business and pay
wages. They havo presented a strong
prima fncio enso, conclusive as to tho
fact that more revenue Is needed. The
Interstate Commerco commission has nisi
received suggestions qb to how the rail
roads -might get other revenue by cutting
off freo service and how economies might
be effected. Now comes the main ques
tion for this week,
' Carriers' Flirnrefc Cnulritdluled.
A direct Issue Is raised on tho question
of adequacy of revenues. Mr. Thome's
figures aro contradictory of those alv(,n
by tho carriers.
The method of pomputlng applied by
Mr. Tliorne Is to compare revenues of
groups of years with other groups rather
than stnglo years. The revenues of om

"If It wero true that the net revenues
of American railways wero declining.
that would not establish tho fact that
their prascnt net revenues are Inade
quate," says Mr. Thorne. "The revcnuei
In former years may havo been larger
than justifiable. Wo cannot assume, as
a final basis for what is reasonable, the
particular amount of earnings they had
last year, or the year before, or ten 'year
ago. Tho ultimato test of what Is rea
sonable, when considering an cntlro
schedule of rates for any public utility,
whothcr of a city or a stato or nation,
Is tho fair value of the proporty."
Capitalisation Ilasla Unfair.
Thclntorstata Commerce commission
has declined to take as that basis tho
capitalization which does not represent
either value or investment, but a valua
tion Is now In process, and until that )h
completed It wilt not be posslblo to havo
a basis for rates. Mr. Thorno says:
"In the absence of proof of value as a
basis wo are confined to a consideration
of tendencies. If tho facts show a con
stant decline In revenues during recent
years, threatening somo crisis In their
business, then the commission might be
Justified in not waiting until tho na
tional valuation Is completed, and th3
commission might be wholly Justified In
taking Immediate steps for the relief of
such a situation.
"On the other hand, if we find a fair
analysis shows that the trend Is In ex
actly tho opposlto direction; If we fnd
that they had more money to spend In
maintaining and Improving their proper
ties than ever before: If we find that their
net revenues, over and above all costs
ot labor and supplies and other operating
expenses, have been greater during re
cent years than ever before in their his
tory, then thero cannot be tho slightest
excuso for holding tholr present revenues
Inadequate until It Is shown that evan
these revenues, which aro greater than
ever before, arc still Insufficient to yield
a responsible return upon the fair valuo
of their properties."
Increase In Earnings Kuormoas.
Forming the figures In five-year group
Mr. Thorne shows:
"The net revenues of American rail
ways for the five-year period ending with
1&94 were approximately 3 per cent greater
than In 1890; tho Increase during the next
flvo-year period was 7 por cent; tho in
crease in the next five-year period was
CI per cent over ISOO; the next Increaie
was 11 per cent. In 1910 this Increase over
1890 was 150 per cent; In 1511 It was I3S
per cent; In 1912 It was 12t por cent, and
In 1913 It was 117 per cent. The net reve
nues of American railways In 1913 wcrj
ttfO.000,000 greater than in IMS; tho in
crease In net revenues during the last
fifteen years has been more than 100
The statistics prepared here by Sir
Thorne and taken to Washington for
presentation to tho commission com
mencing today will show the revenues cf
the railroads to be Increasing and suf
ficient, and no good reason existing for
tho demand for an Increase In freight
It will now be up to the railroads
