IN A PARTNI Is Sag^estlon of Theodore P. Sfeonts, J)!re*tor In 3tany lioads. In aa address delivered before the Detroit Board ot Commerce on Tuesday Theodore P. Shouts, president ot* tbe Interborough Rapid Transit company of New York, and director of many railroads, proposed a wholly new solution of the railroad tangle as follows: "As a possible solution to the ca! tional problem with which our country is struggling- -shall wo return to old j railroad conditions after the war?-- Â· J suggest a partnership between the j soverament. and the railroads, some- j thuig like the partnership that has t been, formed m New York by the city j and the rapid transit lines for the cou- stiuclion acd ojcration of the city's j new dual rapid transit system "The interests ot the country, with its need for greatly enlarged and extended railroad facilities, and the in- Iterests of investors are so interwoven I it the financial responsibility should .a'wisc be interwoven. This doctrine i underlies the principles embodied in j the contract for New York's new dual j rapid transit system, probably the first I place such a plan has been, attempted jto any degree of magnitude. ' "Let us consider this railroad prob- lem In the same way the dusil system problem was considered, using the same terms for each. Treat this thTeo 3 ear average, which the fio^rrnraent grants, as a preferential subject to :nich readjustment in individual capos as is necessary to bo fair; and then let the government supply tlio munuy necessary for all the improvements made after June 30, 1317; and, because of its many and different benefits, treat that as a junior Hen. on the property. "If, when the war is over, it is thought wise to continue this partnership relationship in developing new transportation facilities on existing lines, both as to construction and equipment, let private capital contribute in the proportion that will insure a fair return out. of traneporta- ton earnings--to bo treated aa a preferential payment--the government t" furnish the remainder, and the government again, because of its many and indirect benofitb, to treat its contribution as a junior Hen to be paid out of earnings, and after the government j has been made whole than a division . of earnings on the basis of the proper- MONEY BACK EF IT FAILS tion that private capital bears to gov- ernrient capita! in eac'i proportion. "The railroad traffic map of the country IS now (Uvjdetl into zones for rate-malnnff purposes.
