In the face of these increases, freight rates on the
Union Pacific System during the same time have in
creased only 32 3-10 percent and passenger fares
35 3-10 percent. , '
- In 1913 we received for hauling a ton of freight
one mile, 9.7 mills; for hauling a passenger one mile,
21c In 1923 these rates were 1.285 and 3.035 re
spectively. The 1923 freight rate represents a
reduction of about 11 percent under 1921 and pass
enger fares about 8 percent under 1921.
In order to earn enough gross revenue to purchase
a pint of ink, it is necessary for us to haul one ton of
freight 42 miles; for a cross tie, 65 miles; a hand
lantern, 91 miles; one freight car wheel, 1117 miles;
and one monkey wrench 97 miles.
To pay for a day of track labor it is necessary to
haul one ton of freight 23G miles. For a day's wages
of a freight train crew 2680 miles. For a day's wages
of a machinist 461 miles. For a ton of fuel 263 miles
' The railroads of the United States maintain the
lowest rates and the lowest capitalization per mile,
while paying the highest wages of any country in
So long as the railroads' cost of doing business re
mains at the present high level a general reduction
of freight and passenger rates cannot safely be made
Constructive suggestions are always welcome.
