    Excerpt from Statement of M. C. Brush, President of the Boston Elevated Railway Company, Before the Street Railway Investigation Commission of the Massachusetts Legislature September 6, 1917: Satisfactory Service and Sound Securities

    The Commonwealth has had many commissions for several years past on all details of the question of street railroading.

    As an indication of how efi'ort has been made by the use of commissions to meet in some specific cases the transporta tion problem, under the provisions of Chap. 108, Resolves of 1913, providing for the investigation of the street rail way service furnished by the Boston Elevated Railway Company and the Bay State Street Railway Company in the metropolitan district, a joint report was made by the Public Service Commission and the Boston Transit Com mission, and in the last part of the report it states: The Joint Commission therefore respectfully recommends that to some public authority be committed a thorough and fundamental consideration of the whole metropolitan transportation problem.

    The next year Chap. 149 of the Resolves of 1914 called for a continuation of the report asked for by the Resolves of 1913, and the Public Service Commission reported, and in the last paragraph of that report stated: The special duty of considering these rapid transit plans can be delegated to some other public body, such as the Boston Transit Commission. Then in 1916 in the Resolves of that year, Chap. 158, provision was made for a special commission to consider the financial condition of the Boston Elevated Railway Company reporting in Senate 344, the ninth recommendation of which read: The Commission recom mends that the Public Service Commission be directed to make a thorough investigation of the affairs of the Boston Elevated Railway Company, and that investigation is now being carried on. Further, the Commonwealth has had a Public Service Commission or its predecessor, the Railroad Commission, since 1869, or for forty-eight years.
