This point being duly weighed, resolves itself into two sub-questions (c) Is electric operation physically feasible? (b) Are the financial situations such as to make it feasible? The major portion Of our study has been on the fourth of these questions, and especially on division (a) thereof. This, in turn, divides itself into three questions: suburban passenger, through passenger, and freight business. The advantage from handling the first of these by electricity is generally conceded. The second is probably proven. Most of our study is on the third Of these, relatively the greatest nuisance of the three, and the one to which least thought has been given.
