Is Five Cents on the
Dollar of Valuation
Too Much to Earn?
If a business worth $10,000 earned $500 net income
in a year (or $41 a month), would it be considered an
unreasonable profit and proof that its prices were too
high ?
The railroads are in that situation today.
The 1923 net return for the whole country was leas
than 5 per cent. Aa of December 31, 1919, the Inter­
state Commerce Commia«in«l gave to the railroads a ten­
tative valuation of $18,900,000,000. With actual figures
far 1920, 1921, 1922, and with 1923 conservatively esti­
mated as $1,100,000,000, there has been invested in the
railways since this tentative valuation a net amount of
$2,371,583,000, making the value aa of December 31,
1923, $21,271,583,000. On this amount the Railways
in 1923 earned an aggregate net operating income of
approximately $997,610,000, or 4.69 per cent.
The Government guarantee of earnings expired Aug­
ust 31, 1920. If this guarantee had been continued—
as repeatedly but erroneously claimed—the Government
.would owe the railroads more than a billion dollar*.
Last year the roads handled a record volume of busi­
ness but could not earn the fair return of 5% Per cent
to which the Interstate Commerce Commission, under
the Transportation Act, has found they are entitled.
If the roads cannot earn 5 )4 Per cent *n a hig year, what
will they do in a small year?
The Transportation Act provides that if a road in any
year earns more than 6 per cent it shall pay one-half of
the excess to the Government. The Act, is, therefore,
a limitation rather than a guarantee.
Give Transportation Act Fair Trial
The THirisportatton Act should be given a fair test and Its
merits Judged by the result* of a normal period of reasonafiie
length. The year 1M3 was the first since the war under eondi
tlona appmu< lilng stabilization.
What ihe railroad situation demands just now Is not more law
but more confidence. The railroads have emerged from the wel­
ter of the war, rwtorefi their morale, made enormous tavern
meats of new money, and in 1923 handled a peak business With
universal safisfactlfio.
The Transportation Act is the only really constructive railroad
legislation of a generation. Previous acta were almost solely re­
pressive. In framing the Act the public Interest was paramount.
The Act directs the Interstate Commerce Commission to give due
consideration to th* transportation needs of the country and the
necessity of enlarging railway facilities in order to provide th*
people of the United Htates with adequate transportation.”
Give the Act « chance. Don't amend it. If the roads are ie'
