|Excerpt from Proceedings of a National Convention of Railroad Commissioners: Held at Pfister House, Milwaukee, Wis;, May 28 and 29, 1900
The convention was called to order by Hon. Cicero J. Lindly, chairman.
The Chairman. Gentlemen, you will please come to order. Tho first order of business will be the reading of the call by the secretary.
The secretary read the call for the convention, as follows:
Call for National Convention of Railroad Commissioners.
At a meeting of the National Convention of Railroad Commissioners, held at Denver, Colo., on August 10 and 11, 1899, the place for the next annual meeting was fixed at Milwaukee, Wis., and the time May 8, 1900, but the committee on arrangements for the next meeting, having subsequently found that proper accommodations could not be obtained at the hotels in Milwaukee on the date fixed by the convention, unanimously recommended that the date be changed to May 28, 1900, and in this recommendation the officers of the convention concurred.
Authority for making the change may be doubted and the recommendation possibly censured, but an emergency has arisen since the date was fixed at Denver that requires such change. For these reasons and pursuant to such recommendation the date fixed at Denver is changed, and notice is hereby given that the Twelfth Annual Convention of Railroad Commissioners will be held at the Pfister House, in the city of Milwaukee, Wis., on Monday, May 28, 1900, at 11 o'clock a. m.
The railroad commissioners of all States and State officers charged with any duty in the supervision of railroads are respectfully requested to attend and participate in the discussion of such topics as may come before the convention. The Association of American Railway Accounting Officers is also invited to attend, or send delegates to the convention, and join in the consideration of such questions of special interest to that association as may arise.
At the last convention committees were appointed to consider and report to the next convention on the following subjects:
(1) Classification of construction expenses; (2) classification of operating and construction expenses or electric railways; (3) railroad statistics; (4) uniform classification; (5) powers, duties, and work of railroad commissions; (6) legislation; (7) delays attendant upon enforcing orders of railroad commissions; (8) safety appliances; (9) grade crossings; (10) plans for ascertaining the fair valuation of railroad properties.
