For one or two of the remaining years the distribution indicated the same relation for Wisconsin as for the system. When the three interstate divisions in Wisconsin, the Chicago and Milwaukee, the Racine and South Western, and the Superior, are entirely excluded from the figures for Wisconsin as well as from those outside, the average per mile of road, as shown by the road accountant, amounted to $1,070 for Wisconsin and $1,095 for the line entirely outside of this state for the six years in question. When the cost of the Superior and the Racine and South Western divisions are adjusted and apportioned between Wisconsin and the line outside and are also included in the calculations, and when the Chicago and Milwaukee division alone is excluded, the respective average costs per mile for the period were $1,082 in Wisconsin and $1,075 outside. When about 40 per cent, of the Chicago and Milwaukee division is allotted to Wisconsin and the balance of the line outside, the averages per mile of road were: Wisconsin $1,149, outside $1,140. These figures throw considerable light on the relative cost of the maintenance of way in Wisconsin and on the line outside. When the three interstate divisions are entirely omitted from the calculations, the relative cost for the period seems to have been greater outside than in Wisconsin.
