Not illustrated. 1920 edition. Excerpt: ...line and all maltster elevators, the number of which Inconsiderable. Table 60.--Comparison of the proportions of different types of elevators handling sides lines with the average number handled per elevator. While practically 80 per cent of the elevators answering the Commission's inquiry regarding side lines are engaged in this business, barely 70 per cent of all the lines report operations of this character as compared with over 86 per cent of all individual elevators. All elevators dealing in side lines average about two and a half lines per elevator, but all types of line elevators handle only a little over two side lines per elevator, while all individual types combined handle nearly three. Similarly, all reporting elevators handle on the average about two side lines as compared with about one and a half for the line elevators and two and a half for the individual elevators. The individual cooperatives lead both in the proportion of elevators handling side lines and in the average number reported. Over 90 per cent of such elevators handle side lines, and the average reported is 3.29 lines for those houses doing a side-line business, or 3.01 lines for all the houses of this type reporting. Commercial line elevators, on the other hand, rank lowest in the proportion handling side lines and in the average number of side lines handled. Slightly less than 70 per cent do any of this business, and the average number of side lines handled is barely two for such houses and less than one and a half for all reporting elevators of this type.
