GENERAL PROVISIONS Section 103.00-1 Order of the Commission.
At a General Session of the Interstate Commerce Commission, held at its office in Washington, D. C., on the 19th day of May, A. D. 1914.
The subject of a Uniform System of Accounts to be prescribed for and kept by carriers being under consideration, the following order was entered:
It is ordered, That the Classification of Investment in Road and Equipment of Steam Roads and the text pertaining thereto, embodied in printed form to be hereafter known as Issue of 1914, a copy of which is now before this Commission, be, and the same is hereby, approved; that a copy thereof duly authenticated by the Secretary of the Commission be filed in its archives, and a second copy thereof, in like manner authenticated, in the office of the Division of Carriers Accounts; and that each of said copies so authenticated and filed shall be deemed an original record thereof.
It is further ordered, That the said Classification of Investment in Road and Equipment of Steam Roads with the text pertaining thereto be, and is hereby, prescribed for the use of carriers by rail (exclusive of electric railways) subject to the provisions of the Act to Regulate Commerce as amended, in the keeping and recording of their accounts of investment in road and equipment; that each and every such carrier and each and every receiver or operating trustee of any such carrier be required to keep all said accounts in conformity therewith; and that a copy of said issue be sent to each and every such carrier and to each and every receiver or operating trustee of any such carrier.
It is further ordered, That any such carrier or any receiver or operating trustee of any such carrier may subdivide any primary account established in said issue, or may make assignment of the amount included in any such primary account to operating divisions, to its individual lines, or to States: Provided, however, That such subprimary accounts set up or such assignments made by any such carrier or by any receiver or operating trustee of any such carrier do not impair the integrity of the accounts hereby prescribed; and provided also that a list of such subprimary accounts set up or such assignments made be first filed in the office of the Division of Carriers' Accounts, subject to disapproval by the Commission.
It is further ordered, That in order that the basis of comparison with previous years be not destroyed, any such carrier or any receiver or operating trustee of any such carrier may, during the twelve months ending June 30, 1915, keep and maintain, in addition to the accounts of investment in road and equipment hereby prescribed, such portion or portions of its present accounts with respect to items of investment in road and equipment as may be deemed desirable by any such carrier or by any receiver or operating trustee thereof, for the purpose of such comparison; or, during the same period, may maintain such groupings of the primary accounts hereby prescribed as may be desired for that purpose.
It is further ordered, That, unless otherwise ordered, any such carrier or any receiver or operating trustee of any such carrier may keep any temporary or experimental accounts for investment the purpose of which shall be to develop economies in construction: Provided, however, That such temporary or experimental accounts shall not impair the integrity of any general or primary account hereby prescribed.
It is further ordered, That July 1, 1914, be, and is hereby, fixed as the date on which said issue of the Classification of Investment in Road and Equipment shall become effective.

INTERSTATE COMMERCE COMMISSION,
Washington, May 19, 1914. To ACCOUNTING OFFICERS OF STEAM RAILWAYS:
This Classification of Investment in Road and Equipment supersedes the Classification of Expenditures for Road and Equipment, First Revised Issue, effective July 1, 1907, with the Supplement thereto, effective July 1, 1908, and also the Classification of Expenditures for Additions and Betterments, First Revised Issue, effective July 1, 1910. It also supersedes conflicting instructions contained in Accounting Bulletin No. 8.
The plan of merging the accounts of expenditures for additions and betterments with the accounts for investment in road and equipment provides that carriers' records shall be kept in such form that the expenditures for additions and betterments may be reported separately from those for original road, original equipment, and road extensions.
Distinct accounts have been provided for the investment in several classes of buildings which, under the former classification, were included in the account “Miscellaneous structures."
The general and special instructions contain a comprehensive statement of the principles underlying the classification, indicating generally the application of the accounting rules. The attention of accounting officers is called to the importance of requiring all employees who are assigned to accounting work in connection with investment in road and equipment to familiarize themselves thoroughly with these instructions.
In the preparation of the revision of the accounting rules contained in this and other classifications for steam roads, which are concurrently issued, the Commission has had the cooperation of the Association of American Railway Accounting Officers, and of its Standing Committee on Corporate, Fiscal, and General Accounts.
The classification, in tentative form, was presented for criticism and suggestions to the chief accounting officer of each railway and to the railway commissions of the several States. All suggestions received from such parties have been given careful consideration and
