This being the case', 1 the policy ot giving the public a clear, 'concise, and intelligible s'talcmcnt of .the present position of the street rail- -way is a wise and thoughtful policy. In the figures so far submitted by .Commissioner Freeman as to tho an- :nual deficit in'the operating of the .street cars in 1910, being as they are matter of a little over there .does not appear to be any urgent rea ,8on why drastic action should ba .taken. This' opinion gains In value in that it is anticipated in the new schc dule fares that, the deficit in oper atirg will be wiped olf this year. In tlact the belief in this has made it so 'that tbero has been no allowanc1 oiirfe in (he city estimates for tin Current year for deficits. With operating expenses alone con there appears to be no reaaoi there should be anything of th of the alarm tbat would cal ifor Buch action as Ihe discontinuance! of tbe running of the cars. In fact' 'there would -be nothing gained by .ithis, in that tho ilicd charges of odd will still be n .on city ana anything in Ihe nature "of reducing them by a revenue do- 'rived from operating expenses will be off. In regard to this rovtnue. it may bo said tbat there have been -years in which thero hnve been stir- .-Jiluabs and cot deficits. The only reason that will nlltnv- for the discontinuance of tbc street rail-: ;way is the eliminating as far as pom :Bible tbe fixed charges.-.; This ran' only be obtained by selling, an much as possible, of HID equipment.
