Although the Illinois Centxal System (independently ol the Central of Georgia, which is operated separately) ranks fourteenth among the railway systems of the country in mileage, last year it ranked third ,in volume of freight traffic handled. The freight traffic record of the Illinois Central System in 1922 was surpassed by the freight traffic records of only the Pennsylvania and New York Central, the hallway systems ranying respectively first and second in mileage. -The Illinois Central Sstem showed increases in both freight and passenger business for 1922. Passenger traffic (measured by the number of passengers carried one mile) actually decreased nearly 6 per cent for all of the Class I railroads in 1922 as compared with 1921. but the Illinois Central System registered an increase of two-tenths of one per cent. Freight traffic (measured by the number of tons of freight carried one mile) increased only 9cA per cent for all of the Class I railroads in 1922 as compared with 1921. but the Illinois Central System registered an in- crease of 21 4-5 per cent. These increases in both passenger and freight business made possible the Illinois Central Saystem's unusually favorable -showing in total operating revenues for 1922 in the fece of the fact that on the average both passenger and freight rates were lower than in 1921. Since the first of the year the traffic of the Illinois Central System, both passenger and freight, has increased substantially over that handled in the corresponding period of last "year. The number of passengers carried one mile by the Illinois Central System in the aeve.n months ended July 31, 1923, was greater by 12 2-3 per cent than the passenger traffic handled in the first seven months of 1922. The number of tons of freight carried one mile by the Illinois Central System in the seven months ended July 31, 1923, wa greater by 32 per cent than the freight handled in the first seven months of 1922. Despite the growth of passenger and freight traffic in its territory, the Illinois Central System has kept abreast of the situation so well, through additions and improvements to its plant and through the splendid co- operation of its employes and patrons, that this year's unprecedented busi- ness has been handled with marked effieieitey. Moreover, the Illinois Centra] System enters the fall and winter better prepared than ever before to dis- charge its obligations to the public. This exceptional showing speaks for itself. It should be a source of gratification to the patrons as well as to the employes of'the Illinois Central System. It represents joint effort and joint ruceess. It is not alone a gain Constructive critieksm and suggestions are invited. C. H. MARKHAM, Fre,ident, llllnois Central System. o / ,4 e f
