108; other persons killed, 390; injured, 501; at other points along track, passengers killed, 8; injured, 14; other persons killed, 3,214; injured, 1,925. The ratios of casualties indicate that 1 employee in every 364 was killed and 1 employee in every 22 was injured. With regard to trainmen---that is, enginemen, firemen, conductors, and other trainmen--it appears that 1 trainman was killed for every 123 employed and 1 was injured for every 10 employed.

One passenger was killed for every 1,957,441 carried and 1 injured for every 84,424 carried. With respect to the number of miles traveled, however, the figures show that 58,917,645 passenger-miles were accomplished for each passenger killed and 2,541,096 passenger-miles for each passenger injured.

NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF RAILWAY COMMISSIONERS.

Pursuant to call the Sixteenth Annual Convention of the National Association of Railway Commissioners was held in the city of Birmingham, Ala., on November 15, 16, and 17, 1904. The attendance at this convention was large, the majority of States having railway commissions being represented. The Association of American Railway Accounting Officers and the Street Railway Accounting Association of America were also in attendance.

The convention was opened with an address by the president of the association, Hon. John V. Smith, of Alabama.

Committee reports were presented on the following subjects: Classification of operating and construction expenses of electric railways; Railroad taxes and plans for ascertaining fair valuation of railroad property; Uniform classification and simplification of tariff sheets; Railroad statistics; Legislation; Safety appliances and block signals; Rates and rate making; and Delays attendant upon enforcing orders of railway commissions.

The convention adopted a resolution requesting Congress to amend existing law so as to authorize the Interstate Commerce Commission, on complaint that any interstate rate is unreasonable or unjust, and after full hearing to ascertain what rate is reasonable and just in the particular case and order the carrier to observe that rate for the future, subject to rehearing upon application of the carrier when the conditions may have been changed, the rate so prescribed to be effective unless enjoined by the court. A committee of nine was authorized to urge the passage of this legislation. All of which is respectfully submitted.
