Three of the corporations included above appear not to have earned expenses, and seventeen others have not earned sufficient to warrant the declaration of any dividend.

From the above data it appears that the gross profits from electric lighting of all the companies increased $188,887.36, and those doing only an electric business show an increase during the last year of $231,599.68.

In Appendix A will be found, under date of June 30, 1910, the separate balance sheets, profit and loss and manufacturing accounts of the companies, as taken from the annual returns, with corrections made by the Board after examination and correspondence with the officers of the several companies.

Aggregates from the balance sheets of the electric companies only, taken from the returns of 1909 and 1910, show the following facts:
