JNet to Company, fCapital Traction Co. xlncluding Taxes. In this and the following table, returns for the last fiscal year available are listed for the first fifteen cities of the United States. These cities are listed (Col. 1) in the same order but are ranked (Col. 2) in each table according to the most important factor, as noted below. This first table alone cites the fiscal year upon which the returns, for the most part, are based, exceptions being noted. From the viewpoint of the riding public, this table possesses an unusual interest, as it shows what portion of the fare is retained by the operating company as returns from its investment. Whether or not the return is entirely adequate in each case involves a number of factors not shown here. The proportion of income actually earned by the companies is shown in the last column, comprising fixed charges as well as dividends, also surplus. No distinction has been made between fixed charges and dividends, as they all represent company return in some form. Where a deficit occurs, the total return is shown in Column 4. This however is a theoretical return, and only becomes actual if taken out of future earnings. RATIO OF OPERATING EXPENSES TO GROSS EARNINGS.
