Page  4 REPORT OF THE PRESIDENT TO THE STOCKHOLDERS OF THE DETROIT & MACKINAC RAILWAY COMPANY. Detroit, Mich., September 23, 1907. Gentlemen: During the year the road suffered from the prevailing car shortage. it is comfortinig to know that we took care of our customers as well as any road in Michigan. Expenses have been very high during *the year, but it is expected we have reached high water mark in this direction. The total earnings for -the year of $1,311,274.80 show an increase of $156,448.34. Car Trust Notes were paid to the amount of $80,000.00, leaving still to pay $ 2 40,0 00.0 0. Three heavy locomotives were bought and paid for early in the year; 1,000 tons of 85-pound steel rail were used in main track, and the lighter rail released was used as usual on logging branches and on the Hillman Branch. Work on the' i-llman Branch, west of Alpena, has been going along with a view of having 10 miles of the branch in operation early in 1908, at the time the new Huron Portland Cement Co. is ready for the shale, for the hauling of which the branch is being constructed. The Cement company expects to have its.3,000-barrel plant in operation by February 1, 1908. This branch should be extended in the near future to Hillman to serve a fine farming country, and for the gravel and for the timber. I W\hile forest products still give us a large tonnage, they now comprise only 47.55 per cent. of our freight business, as against 53.41 per cent. last year, and 91.45 per cent. for the year ending June 30, 1896. A two cent a mile bill was passed by the Legislature at its last session. While the D. & M. Ry. is exempt from the direct provisions of the bill, the Michigan Central R. R. is obliged to reduce its fare to two cents a mile on its Mackinac Division. This obliges us to use the two cent rate for through business between Bay City and Cheb)oyjgan. The effect will be to reduce our passenger earnings, as no one believes the Legislature was in earnest in making the claim that reduced fares would increase travel enough to make up for the lower charge per mile. We can, however, take off some passenger trains and thus minimize the loss. The State continues to collect in taxes nearly twice the amount paid our stockholders each year. Taxes for current year are $81,261.79, and dividends to the stockholders of the road $47,500.00. At a hearing before the State Tax Commissioners at Lansing, on February 5, 1907, attention was called to the grossly inaccurate report

Page  5 on the value of the physical property of the railroad, called Prof. Cooley's report. This report gives an excessive valuation on the Right of Way and Station Grounds, on the Grading, on the Rails, on the Track Fastenings, on the Ballast, on the Tracklaying and Surfacing, on the Fencing, and, in fact, on nearly every item of the report, and makes the mistake of treating such items as ballast and track laying and surfacing as permanent improvements. After giving excessive values on nearly all items and putting in thousands of dollars for miscellaneous structures and miscellaneous equipment, the report goes on to add four per cent. to the total for engineering, and one-half of one per cent. for legal expenses, and to this new total three per cent. for interest and one and one-half per cent. for organization, and then to this total ten per cent. for contingencies. Attention was called to Item 22-"Grain Elevators," $334,469.00. This item, with the various additions, amounts to more than $400,000.00, and the Commission was asked to reduce the assessment by that amount, as the road never had any grain elevators. They took off $100,000.00. The Commission refused to give any information as to what they considered the value of the physical property or the non-physical, but assess the road at nearly double the value of its property. It is hoped we may get some relief from the courts when we are able to properly bring the matter before them. We can at least let the people know that railroads are not paying taxes the same as other property, but in the case of the D. & M. Ry. nearly twice as much as other property. Yours very truly, J. D. HAWKS, President and General Manager.
