at mistakes, from my point of view, that have been made in the electrification--in what little electrification there has been--in connection with our great steam-railroad properties. Take the experience of two such great institutions at the Pennsylvania Railroad and the New York Central Railroad. A few years ago when we had put into operation, I think, the first large steam-turbine unit in our Fisk Street Station, the New York Central Railroad sent out a most distinguished commission of electrical engineers and mechanical engineers to look into our methods. What was the result? The Pennsylvania Railroad put up its own plant and the New York Central Railroad put up its own plant. If you will investigate the cost of those plants, and the operating cost of those plants, and will charge five per cent depreciation and five per cent for money and then figure out the cost of the electrical energy that they produce, and compare their cost with the contract price paid by the street-railway companies in the city of Chicago, you will find a difference between the cost to those two steam-railroad companies and the cost if they had purchased their electricity at the price we are in the habit of selling it to any street-railway company wanting it here in Chicago--you will find a difference in cost, after allowing for interest and depreciation, of upwards of $1,000,000 a year. Railroad Maximum-demand Period Favorable To CentralStation Operation Now that is an economic waste; it is an economic waste not only directly to those companies, but indirectly to the electricity-supply compani...
