NEW CITY CHARTER
CARRIES BY 16 VOTES
The Harrirnan system carried
10 p«-r cent of the estimated 1910
passenger traffic. The figures
for most of the «>ther railroads
have not yet been cornplu-d by
the Government, but in 1909 the
numlier of passengers carried
was 29,000,000,000. Th<- figures
for 1910, it is said, will not ex-
ceed a billion more.
Many other railroads have gone
through a year without a fatality
to any of its passengers, but it is
said that no system has made
this record for such a large total
of passengers.
Results on the Harrirnan lines
are aacriljed to a campaign wag-
«-«1 by the management for years
to reduce accidents. The Harri-
man system now has more miles
of automatic blix-k signal protec­
tion than any other Bystem in the
world. Mr. Kruttschnitt hasdi-
recu-d special attention to the ac­
cident problem, and began sev­
eral yi-ars ago to bring out a re­
duction by giving complete pub­
licity to all forms of accidents
and their investigation, which, it
is belive«!, spurred officers and
employes to greater efforts to
safeguard lives.
In 1903-190-1 the number of ac­
cidents on the Union Pacific was
20 for 1,000,000 locomotive miles.
On the Pacific system of the
Southern Pacific the number of
accidents per 1.000.000 locomotive
miles was reduced from 29.5 to
10.5 in the same time.
