YES, PRUNES COST MORE
THAN BIG LOCOMOTIVES
While still less costly than prunes
and not half so expensive as butter,
the price of locomotives has increas
ed more than ten cents a pound since
1915, according to J. H. Dyer, gen
eral manager for Southern Pacific
With prunes quoted at 19 cents
and butter at 40 cents a pound, the
company last year paid an average
price of 17.3 cents a pound for 11,
218,600 pounds of locomotive,; as
compared with an average cost of
7.09 cents a pound in 1915.
"Public interest has occupied it
self largely with the advancing cost
of living," said Dyer. Tew people
however, are aware of the fact that
during ten years in which food stuffs
prices advanced 46 per cent, the cost
of locomotives advanced 140 per
cent. The Pacific type locomotive
that in 1925 cost $25,585 now costs
"Other costs of railway equipment
and operation have increased pro
portionately. Meanwhile railway in
come, restricted by legislation, has
shown no increase corresponding
with either the mounting cost of
living or the swollen expense of rail
