I BALTIMORE AND OHIO,
Axornr.n expert report ox rra
ralteraon and Cornln rlllclse. Stephen Mule's
Report They lay That tha Real Condi
linn or Ibn Company Has Sot let Ileen
Revealed Living on Receivers' Certificates.
Patterson and Corwln, the accountants em
ployed by tho Daltltuoro rommtttco to cxamino
tbo flnnnclal condition of llio Ualtlmore ond
Ohio Itallroad Company, have, mado their roport,
and tho cominlttco hnB prepared a rynopsls of It
pending Its publication In pamphlet form for
distribution nmonc tho securltr holders. Tho
report Is based on thnt mado by Stephen Little,
together with tho annual reports of tho com
puny from 1888 to 1B00 Inclusive, tho special re
port of Comptroller II. I). IIiilMcy of Febrnary,
1880. and tho company's trial balanco of Nor.
Patterson and Corwln take Issue with Mr. Lit
tle on many points and assert that they hava
discovered differences affecting; his statement
of current assets and liabilities, amounting to
ov er $2.ti00,OO0. lnludlre an o cr statement of
available cash to tho extent of over $1,300,000.
They assert that tho company was financially
embarrassedonScpt.no. 1888. In thnt It had a
floating debt nt thnt tlmo of over 9I.000.0C0.
Tho report icntnlns statements of tho apparent
financial condition of the company on Nov. HO,
1805, excluelv oof Indorsements and of tho re
sources and tliclr disposition from Oct, 1,138s,
to Nov. RO, 1S!K. In tho bj uopsis tho review Is
umnic'l up ns follows:
"That having cnrefully prepared all theso
tatcments. amplified ns fully ns practicable
from nvallablo data, Messrs. Patterson and Cor
nln arc not nt all Bfttlslled lib them for tho
reason that they contnln loo ninny qualifica
tions, contlngeniles. and probabilities of error.
Tho positive conclusion Is reached that the con
dition of tho Ualtlmore and Ohio Railr.md Com
pany has not jolbecn revealed, ond that It can
not bo revealed excepting from Its books In con
nection with statements mado up from tho books
of tho vnrlous affiliated lines, as of u common
date, so that their mutual relations can be Intel
ligently orrh cd at."
Patterson and t'orvvlnsay " The bonks upon
which tho statements herewith submitted are
limed oner onlv about DIM) miles owned nnd
about l.MK) miles operand under arlous other
conditions, making a total nf i!,07i! miles col ered
by the Income nccount. The same books ioi er n
net bonded debt of onlj nbouts?(ll,700,000and an
apparent unfundod debt of only about SU.000,000
and fixed charges, nccorditiK tn tho Imouio ac
count, of a llttlo oier $11,000,000 per annum.
That an adequate Idea nf the condition of tho
Baltimore and Ohio Itallroad cannot bo derived
from statementa taken from theso books may Imj
surmised by taking Into conslilcrutlon tho fait
that tho Ualtlmore and Ohio system really com
prises oer 3.GO0 miles of road, n funded debt of
over $225,000,000, and a publicly stated un
funded debt on Juno 30, 1805, of about $30,
000.000. Regarding fixed cliarjrea c have no
"The uffnlrs of the II. & O. II. It. Company
proper nro so Intertwined with tho uffalrsof all
the other roads of tho systim In tbo nay of ad
vances for various purposes, Indorsements. Iciies,
f iruarantccs. and numerous other arrangtuents,
if" that tho valuo of its assets und tbo extent of Its
!- liabilities cannot be c en approximated without
v a full knowledge of the financial condition of Its
if numerous auxilllary, subsidiary, and otherwise
1 closely allied lines, man) of which arc Its debtors
L to an enormous extent.
V "The Ualtlmoro und Ohio Railroad Company
,, bos advanced nnd tarries upon its books a largo
I amount of Indebtedness Incurred through nd-
' vanclng largo sums of money to theso various
allied lines. Tbo Inference is clear that these
;,, lines havo reached tho limit of their borrowing
power, or It would not be necessary for tbo par
r, ent company to advance so largely. Now that
f the company Is in such financial straits. If these
f largo amounts were collectible It would seem
H ; that, through urgent necessity, the accounts
ma would be reduced by collections.
H' " Nor can tho true earning power of the road
J: be satisfactorily determined excepting in con-
jli ncctlon with the coincident earnings of the nu
ll) mcrous allied lines with which tlie Ualtlmoro
I'. and Ohio Itallroad Company has lntertrafllu ur-
Wt 'c "Among tbo questions that cannot be deter-
I x mined without n thorough Investigation in all
J J directions arc: Whether the nmounts advanced
t . bme really been absorbed by the various lines
s In a legitimate manner. In construction, exten
' J (Ions, &c, or whether tho inone) bns been used
P to mako up dellcleuclcs in earning power causod
' by discrimination In division of earnings or
M 't otherwise, by which the main stem of thclialtl
M . more and Ohio Itallroad Company has been fa
mmc, ' t ored nt the expense of Its subsidiary lines.
',;. Theso and various other questions regarding
financial nnd physical condition nnd the value
nil," ' 'no company of its numerous inv estmenta arc
H stated as beine-pertinent at this time, "In view
,11 1 of the fact that, notwithstanding tbo very Unt
il tg terlng statements of net earnings that may evi-
f; dently be mado up from the books of thclialtl-
lf more and Ohio Railroad Company, the company

The Aldermen's Railroad Commltteo has post
poned to Monday tho further hearing on tho
proposition to hao tho city buy tho Sixth and
Eighth av cnuo surface roads. Tho reason given
for tho postponement was that tho members of
the committee did not think It advisable to dis

listen In him, but ha was nllowcd to file a
statement for his client, in vrblcli ho
sntd that Mr. Uraker's offer Is n fair,
bona fldo ond Independent business proposi
tion, nnd that it vvns n ridiculous thing for
tho advocates of tho Metropolitan syBtcm tossy
that his client was merely a tool of the Third
Avenue Itallroad. Tho object of this attempt to
dcludo tho Aldermen and the public, 'Mr. Uutlcr
said, wns to divert attention from tho Inherent
defects In tho Metropolitan's tltlo, tho city's
right to ncqulro tho roads, and tho enormous
value of the franchises ntstal.r. The resolution

Monday, Mny 17.
Tbo opening of tho stock market this morning
was unquestionably disappointing to tho ma
jority of professional traders. They had sold
stoeks during the latter part of last week In ex
pectation of an unsettled market during tho
early part of this week, resulting from tho Presi
dent's messago regarding the situation In Cuba,
tho resumption of tho debate upon the samo
subject in tho .Senate, and tho possibility of de
cided action by tho Administration within the
next few days. Tbo news from abroad
over Sundny of Turkej's exorbitant de
mands upon Grceco and of evidence that
tho Porte is not disposed to acquiesce
lu tho wishes of the powers Intensi
fied tho bearish feeling. None of these circum
stances, however, influenced prices in tho early
dealings. In tho first place, tho quotations for
American securities In London did not reflect
the uneasy feeling created abroad by tho de
mands and attitude of the Turkish Oovcrnment.
It was learned later in the day that the markets
for Kuropean securities were adverse!) affected
by the facts Just referred to, but as Ameri-.an se
curities havo for somo time past been -virtually
neglected In tho London market they suffered
only sympathetically and to a v cry slight ex
tent. In consequence London quotations for
American securities, though slightly lower,
were really misleading ns an index, of foreign
At the vcr) start tho professional traders dis
covered that they were tho only sellers of stocks
and also that tbo supply In sight was unusual!)
meagre. They therefore Immediate!) ende iv
ored to change their position and continued that
policy throughout tho day. Advocatcsof lower
prlcca encountered n further disappointment
when tho President's messago regarding tho Cu
ban situation was made public. It was much
more pacific or conservative than they bad ex
pected. The bear position was nlso aggravated
by the course of Chicago Gas, which proved to bo
more extensively dealt lu than any other
stock. Professional traders, both here and
at Chicago, hav e been selling Chicago (Jus freely
during tho last few days on tbo assumption that
tho measure pending in tho Illinois Legislature
providing for tho consolidation of tho Chicago
gas companies Is not likely lo becomo n law.
They have Ignored tho fact that the defeat of
that mcosurc. which Is by no means conceded by
the friends of tho various properties, will not In
terfere with tbo earnings of the Industry, which
nro constantly Increasing. They are al6o Ignorant
of tbo fact that tbo certificates representing con
trol of the companies are held by those who
hat o mado their Inv estments upon their belief tn
tho Intrinsic vnlue and tho earning power of tho
several properties. They hopo to increnso tho
efficiency of tho scrvioo and effect Important
economics by tho legislation now pending, but
tho fact remains that without It tho companies
are able to pa) 0 V cent, per annum upon tbo
trust receipts. A not advance of 2V points in
those receipts to-day Is strong circumstantial
evidence that operators for short account, and
not bona tide holders, havo been tho principal
sellers for some tlmo post,
Hugar Refilling, which vvns second only to Chi
cago Q as In respect to activlt), and tho Bhnrcs of
the Granger trunk lines showed a good deal of
strength, resulting largely from the covering of
shorts, and closed fractionally higher than on
Saturday. Of tbo few net declines recorded that
of two points tn General Klcctrlc was the most
Important. Tho execution earl) In the da) of an
order to soil a comparatively small amount of
the stock disclosed tho fact that thcro
was no special demand for It, and that
fact at oneo attracted tho attention
of room traders, who experienced no
difficult) In depressing tho price. A fractional
decline in American Tobacco Is explained by the
Judicial decision against the company in Illinois,
from which, however, an appeal will bo taken.
Tho closing was strong, at about the best prices
for the mnjorlty of tho list.
Final sales compare with those of Saturday as
