(i complete 1evers.1l of the Administra

in.it tei llrst gave signs of becoming
wfute. made it known that he would
do nothing that would abridge any of
I he rights of California as a State. It
was stated seml-ofllclally that the
President would take 110 step until the
California I.egls'.atiiie had acted finally

than to pa an lndemnit to the ag

All this, howevel. was bpfore the

the figure at which it stood on our books.
"This equipment was fant becoming
olmolete. Isith from tin public and the

cars, the latest and Iswt that the Pullman
Company can construct.
"Wo will thus save tlm interest on 7,snn,

own steel car equipment we would have
to Isirrow additional funds, and the re
strictive laws of Massachusetts have al
ready forced our floating indebtednefs
to an unduly large figure.
"As between income and outgo it is
possible in dollars and cents lo figure a
loss to the road by virtUH of the Pullman
contract, but the economic gain, including
the gain to the travelling public, in th
opinion of the directors, more than roin
liensates for a nominal loss in revenue.
"To charge this contract involves any
thing like a loss such as claimed is a mis
statement of tact such aswo aro accus
tomed to from this source "
