FOURTH ANNUAL REPORT
Railroad Commission of Indiana, .
January 1, 1910. To the Hon. Thomas R. Marshall, Governor of Indiana:
We respectfully submit the Fourth Annual Report of the Railroad Commission of Indiana.
The Commission, during the past year, has endeavored to faithfully and energetically perform its duties. Its continuous work has been shown and published in former reports. As its functions become better known, the Commission is brought more and more in communication with all localities in the state. Formally or informally, the latter where practicable, we have considered complaints and appeals as to rates, practices, discriminations, rebates, penalties, car service, train service and connections and accommodations, agents, and depots, new and old, and lighting, heating and sanitary conditions. We have supervised the physical road, and through our inspectors and otherwise have obtained information as to the manner in which they are operated with reference to the security of employes and the public. Reports of all railroad accidents have been made to us, and these have been carefully examined and investigated, and such recommendations made to the railroad companies as will tend to prevent like accidents. Interlocking plants, their installation and operation come under our jurisdiction, and are carefully attended to. We have continued to insist on elevation, care and safety of bridges, and the elevation of telephone and other wires to lawful clearance, and on the removal of lateral obstructions, and on the cleaning up and leveling the tracks, and the boxing of dangerous wires and pipes. We have inspected bridges and cars and engines, and ties and tracks and
