KAIL RIVER.
The Kail road Review,
Springfield, (Mass.) Republican.]
Henry V. Poor's "Railroad Manual" .il
lustrates ho* eisy is literary place to the
man who meets a public demand. To
present in one volume a record of the
financial condition, the traffic and the offi
cial staffs of all the railroads in the coun
try was to do a work of obvious utility, and
when this is issued annually with the most
recent changes and additions, all done
with a painstaking regard for accuracy,
Poor's Manual becomes the indispensible
dictionary for American railroading, as
assuredly as Webster's dictionary became
the standard in lexicography. Mr. Poor,
moreover, precedes his statistics at indi
vidual roads with an introduction present
ing sn abstract of the progress
of the country for the previous
year. He thus covers the ground fully in
an important department of statistics,
where no official bureau undertakes
to collect information. A private citizen,
he is our only national railroad commis
sioner.
The Republican has already noted the
main features of Mr. Poor's last roport.
There was bailt last year 11,591 miles of
railroad, being the largest extension ever
made in one year, bringing the total up to
213,329 miles of railroad in the United
States. Iso other country in the world ap
proaches this vast mileage, and probably
altogether they do not exceed it. It would
go round the world four and one-half
times. The nominal capital and debt
would pay the national debt four or five
times— and the year's earnings for 1882,
which ara not a matter of inflation and
stock watering, amount to $770,000,000, or
half the national debt. Two-sevenths of
this amount was for ]>a3sengere, five
sevenths for freight. The average
gro^s Darnings per mile was
$7,188 in 1882; in New England it was
§8,000, but iii old England the railroads in
1879 earned an average of § 1(5,500 per mite.
The nearest approach to this in America is
probably In Massachusetts, where in 1882
the railroads earned an average of $12,500
per mile. Thus the earning capacity of
railroads rises with density of population
and high degree of popular intelligence.
CJTLe weakness of the American railroad
system is the constantly widening gap be
tween nominal capitalization and real
cost. It is both a financial and a moral
weakness. It was a financial weakness in
the long period of depression, when hun
dreds of millions of so-called stock was
foreclosed out of possession, and is always
a moral weakness from the fact
that a fictitions capital is not en
titled to that "reasonable" return which
the common law allows the common car
rier. Mr. Poor shows that the last 28,000
miles of railroad in this country, the pro
duct ot the last three years, has been ac
companied by an expansion of capital and
debt amounting to $2,023,000,000, or $70,
--000 a mile, whereas the actual cost was not
over $30,000 a mile.; At $30,000, a 1 net
earning of $1,800 will pay 6 per cent,
on the cost, but at $70,000 it takes V net
earning of $4,200 to pay G per cent, on
the cost. Now there has been a marked
decline in both gross and net earnings per
mile of American roads since 1880, partly
because of tbe unproductive new mileage
probably, and partly because of the con
stant decline in rates. Mr. Poor's figures
therefore seem to furnish an explanation
of the present lack of confidence in rail
road stocks. 4i Of course," Bays Mr. Poor,
"such an enormous increase of liabilities
over actual cash outlay is greatly to be re
gretted, and is well calculated to create a
distrust of all securities, good and bad.
In most of th 3 states tha general railroad
laws forbid the issue of share capital,
unless its full equivalent is paid; but these
are avoided by contracts by which a certain
amount of stock aud bonds are issued in
full payment for a given number of
miles."
Mr. Poor discovers that tha average pas
senger service iv. New England is equal to
sixteen rides for every inhabitant; in the
middle states, not i -.eluding the New York
L roads, to ten rides for every inhabitant,
while in the south not every inhabitant got
even one ride-; m the west and southwest
there are four times and en the Pacific ;
coast seven times as many trips as inhab
itant.-. The average freight rate of the
whole country is 1.2 cents per ton per
mile — that is, 12 cents per ten tons per
mile. But this is much higher than the
average rate to: most of the traffic of the
great east acd v;e?t trunk lines. The mar
velous cheapness of this traffic from the
great productive basin to the sea-board is
the substantial and satisfactory achieve
ment of the American railroad system —
the grandest vindication of the American
policy of domestic free trade and the
leaving of commerce to the individual ini
tiative, necessitating the new word,
thought, and performance— enterprise.

Glass is beginning to take the place of
wood and iron in making railroad bridges
in England. The inventor makes blocks
of glass, which he hardens by a special
process. In solidity it is said that it leaves
nothing to be desired. The experiments
already made have given surprising re

of wood or iron. Moreover, the glass can
not be injured by insects like wood or
rusted like iron.

Bismarck Capital 28th: The burned
Butte is to be replaced by another steamer
which the Benton line company will either
build or buy. The loss sustained by the
burning of the Butte wa3 about $12,000,
mostly on the cargo, and from the expense
involved in paying and bringing the crew
back. But the most severe loss is in the
destruction of the Butte herself. She was
unquestionably the most faithful and ser
viceable boat among those in the Benton
Line. She would ran in ; twenty inches of
water with 100 tons of freight and never
went back on her pilot. Besides, up to the
time of her burning she was accounted a
remarkably lucky boat, rarely suffering an
accident. -

the thieving operations of the gang. For
some time past a small but expert gang of

la=t July. Tbe stolen property was con
