REGARDING THE RAILROADS
If the country and its railroad
business develop during the next 25
years as in the past quarter century,
Interstate Commerce Commission es
timates show that the year 1926 will
see railroad investments doubled.
This is indicated despite the develop
ment o f fotor traffic, air traffic, and
a possible betterment o f waterways.
Regarding the encroachment o f
the automobile upon the railroad's
business, the Interstate Commerce
Commission says, “ If the people pre
fer to tax themselves to build great
highways and to use commercial
trucks and pasenger vehicles in pre
ference to the steam railroads they
have a right to their own decision,
but they must also assume the rc
sponsibilities with the attendant con
sequences o f that decision.”
In 1924, the railroads paid $340,
000,000 in taxes and $320,000,000
