    Engineering and economics were not supposed formerly to have any close or intimate relation, and prior to the last decade the realm of engineering was popularly understood to lie within the confines of applied natural science. But the decade just completed has witnessed a very important change in the early point of view, brought about almost entirely by the new problems which have sprung into exis... View full abstract»

    Every engineering operation seeks to accomplish some practical result, which is measured by its financial worth or capacity to earn money by saving labor in doing something useful. There are no exceptions to this, but for railroad work, which will be the subject tonight, we often have to look further and deeper for the full measure of worth, than is usual in any other matters with which I am famil...

    Never before in the history of modern industrialism has there been such a stupendous effort made by every one for high efficiency as at the present time. It is the keynote of every convention; the proceedings of the Institute and other engineering societies are full of it; magazines and daily papers are devoting a great deal of space to the subject.

    R. P. Bolton: I will draw attention to some of the features which the author has introduced as being of an informative nature and upon which you are invited to base future action and practise, and of which the diagrams presented purport to be indexes or guides. A casual observation shows that they omit consideration of a very important element of variation in output and demand on the part of these... View full abstract»

    David B. Rushmore: I want to say a few words about “some of the new things in power transmission. President Dunn mentioned the waterpower part of it — water is often spoken of as “white coal.” We are now coming to a situation of black water, that is, we are going beyond the development of waterpowers for power transmission, and one of the installations under considerati...
