FINE ART OF COMBINATION
But Comparatively Little Capital Required to
Gain Control of Great Railway Systems.
That It is not money but brains, re
sourceful, shrewd, scheming, that control
the great railway consolidations, is
graphically demonstrated by the New
York Financier in its issue of Dec. 23.
The public has come to think of the great
railroad manipulators as men who have
used stupendous amounts of money in
putting through their colossal schemes
of. consolidation, combination and com
munity of interest. The Financier proves
how false Is this impression by taking the
case of the Union Pacific and the numer
ous companies it controls, with a total
mileage of 23,000, and showing how an
actual cash outlay of not more than $30,
--000 could have handled a capitalization of
more than a billion, and how by clever
methods of piling corporations on top of
corporations a small amount of money
can be turned over and over and' made to
serve in so many different capacities that
it is given control of property whose val
uation and power is out of all proportion
to the small amount required. In this
time of keen public interest in railway
combinations such a revelation by a staid,
conservative financial publication should
be read with great interest and profit.
The Financier presents with this issue a
chart which will no doubt prove interesting
to investors in railway securities. It affords
an excellent Illustration of a method which
has recently assumed considerable promi
nence in railway financing. The Intention of
thU chart is to convey at a glance the exten

sive and widespread ramifications of a single
railway system, and to show how complicated
the different securities of various roads have
become In their relations to each other.
Nothing ?onsational is intended. What is
Intended !s to show how the various small
and Independent roads have first been ab
sorbed into one system, which in turn has
been absoroed by another system, resulting
finally in 'lie centering of immense power and
financial resouices into comparatively few
Twenty Men Control 9O Per Cent.
There are -',060 railway corporations in this
country. It is difficult to state how many
systems make up the total, but something like
800 roads or corporations control the 2,050
Individual corr-orations, while it is safe to
say that less than a score of men, either
directly or ii-directly, control nearly .i»u per
cent of the systems.
In other v. urdt the total capitalization of
the railroads' of the United States Is about
J11.1i00.000.000, with a total mileage of about
194,000 miles, while a score of financiers con
tiul railway sjstems representing a capital
ization of |10,006,0Q0,0M and having a mileage
of 174.000 miles. It is not to be judged from
this that these twenty men, or the many
financial Interests closely identified with
them, are worth anything like the sum
named. What they are actually worth is a
matter of conjecture, but it is certain that
they have i.ot invested iv the railroads of the
country one-twentieth of the sum repre
fcti ted in the figures above.
The manner in which these comparatively
few Interests have come to control such an
Immense capitalization with the small in
vestment on their part forms one of the most
interesting features of modern financing. To
begin with, the bonded indebtedness of the
railroads of the country may be completely
eliminated from the calculation, as this in
vestment does not represent control of the
policies followed by the railroads. This por
tion of capitalisation is' a fixed charge against
the railroals, and as long as annual interest
Is regularly met, the bondholders have noth
ing to do with the management. The actual
moving spirits in the railroad world to-day
have practically no investments of Importance
in these securities—at least whatever bonds'
they may possess are held for other purposes
than control, and have aided to no appreci
able extent, their present commanding posi
tion. Bond holdings may therefore be com
pletely eliminated from consideration. Bonds
in their very nature mean safety,- and because
of their more or less absolute safely, com
mand a very small rate of interest, and offer
comparatively no opportunity for the sudden
acquirement of great fortunes and great
power. The, majority of the railroad bonds
of the country, it may be safely reckoned, are
held by insurance companies*, savings banks,
personal estates and private investors. The
Interests in control of 90 per cent of the
railroads of this country have absolute confi
dence in their own judgment, have shown
their readiness Jto take the greatest risks,
and have attained their present position by
policies differing widely from the considera
tions which have caused more conservative
interests to invest in railroad bonds.
." On June 39, " 1900, the bonded debt of the
railroads of the country was* $4,900,626,823.
Deducting this from the total railroad cap
italization leaves $5,845,579,593 of capital
stock. v Assuming that this capital was sell
ins on an average at par, and that there !
were no duplications, it would require nearly
?3,0u0,000,000 to secure the controlling inter
est. But here is just where the moLt interest
ing phase begins. The whole.history of the
railroads-.proves that their natural tendency, j
in answer to actual, 'existing conditions, is I
toward' concentration into fewer and fewer !
systems 1. r-;^'-
The Proprietary Company. '
Recently, however, this,natural tendency I
has been quickened by artificial aid, until at '
the iiresint! time . iht great majority of the '■
railroad mileage of the country can be
grouped auder one of five heads. This arti
ficial aid, as shown in a recent Issue of The
Financier, has of late taken the form of
what is called a proprietary company, built
upon the foundation of collateral trust bonds'.
In theory and In principle these new ••hold
ing" or proprietary companies are not great
ly different from the trust companies so
popular in this country and In Great Britain
a few years ago, for the issuance and sale
of debenture cotes against mortgages and
other securities purchased. Recently, how
ever, this business haa been under a cloud
because of several bad features connected
with it. The new application of this old idea
contemplates the killing of two birds with
one stone—the purchase of the shares of rail
road properties, the Issuance of collateral
bonds (another name for debenture notes or
bonds) against the same, and the sale of the
bouds to the public. Vast capital is not
needed lv thl3 enterprise, as bonds can be
ißsued and sold as fast as the stock Is ac
quired. As ;he bonds- are sold the money thus
released can be used for the purchase of
more stock, and the process continued until
the control of v. property is acquired.
The process Is seen to be extremely simple,
but the extent to which the plan may be
tarried is beyond calculation. Take the re
cent most notable instance of the Issuance of
collateral trust bonds—the Union Pacific's
(169.000,000 issue. This road first raised money
■on Its own notes, through which it quickly
purchased the majority stock of the South
ern Pacific railroad. It then created a col
lateral bond issue, behind which as collateral
it placed the stock acquired, and sold the
bonds to the public. The money thus received
•more than equaled In amount the notes of the
company, which were paid off. With the
remaining money and other resources of the
company Union Pacific bought into the securi
ties of the Northern Pacific. The net result
of this process was as follows: The public
furnished $100,00(/,000 in money for which it
received an equal amount of collateral trust
4 per cent bonds, while Union Pacific secured
the control of Southern Pacitlc, and through
the recent settlement of the Northern Pacific
contest, a half Interest in Burlington and
about $85,000,000 of Northern Securities com
pany's stock. All of this was accomplished,
it must be remembered, without any in
crease whatever in the capital stock of Onion
Pacific. The interests who were in control of
that property have secured in addition, the
control of the other roads without experitl
Suppose that it was deemed desirable to
purchase another railroad property. The
same simple process would be repeated. Th««
stock of the new company would be quickly
bought, which stock would then be put behind
a new collateral trust issue, for which the
public would be looked to to subscribe, with
the result that the Interest In control of Union
Pacific would be in control of another rail
road. Carrying this process still further, it
Is conceivable that one after another railroad
property could be acquired, until finally every
railroad in the country would be owned by
the few Interests now in control of the ma
jority of the stock of Union Pacific —the pub
lic furnishing the money for collateral trust
bonds, while the Interests mentioned above
would acquire active control of the new prop
erty. Of course, this extreme development
Is improbable, but, as an illustration, it serves
well to Illustrate what this method moans.
The Chart accompanying this issue shows
this development In a most striking way. The
roads represented have a total capitalization
of over $1,638,280,000. To this must be added
something over $Bo,ooo,Cmxi of Northern Securi
ties stock, making a capitalization of con
siderably over $1,700,000,000 Invested in rail
road and- steamship lines, and which, aa
brought out in the table, are absolutely con
trolled by those who own the controlling In
terest in Union Pacific. The mileage of the
railroads controlled is over 23,000 miles.
During 18»6 and 169 V, when the present
interests acquired control of Union Pacific,
the stock of the company sold around 3!i and
4ty. At these prices the control of the prop
erty could have been purchased for lesa than
$10,000,000. But taking a more liberal esti
mate, it is hardly probable that the control
of Union Pacific cost the present interest over
$30,000,000, and yet it Is seen that they control
railroad and steamship lines capitalized at
over ten and three-quarter billion dollars.
The Yakima Valley, WMHhlngton,
Is the most attractive Irrigation proposi
tion in the United States. All but trop
ical fruits grow luxuriantly, while alfalfa
is a sure and profitable crop. Twenty
acre ranches can be purchased for $600 on
easy terms. The Northern Pacific rail
way traverses the entire length of the
valley, thus insuring good transportation
facilities. Good schools and churches
abound, and rural mail routes are estab
lished through the valley, which will soon
be one large village. Thunderstorms' are
rare and cyclones unknown. The climate
which is very mild, is extremely benefi
cial to consumptives and those afflicted
with bronchial and catarrhal troubles.
The Northern Pacific has announced cheap
one-way settlers' rates to all points on
its line during March and April. This ■will
give an opportunity to farmers to make
the trip west very cheaply. For particu

Guthrie, Okla., Dec. 26.—The Pawnee
Indians are on the warpath. An im
mense buffalo bull was so injured while
being transferred from the Santa Fe
stockyards to Pawnee Bill's ranch, south
of Guthrie, that he had to be killed. The
meat was given by Major Lillie to the
Indians for a buffalo dance. The Indiana
have been dancing and powwowing ever
since. They claim the vast herds of buf
falo are coming back to this country and
many of the Indians have notified the
white lessees to vacate their ranches at
once, for they wish to lay the fences low,
so the buffalo will have full sway of the
The white people in the remote parts
of the reservation are coming to Pawnee
and report that the Indians are acting in
a threatening manner towards them.
Pawnee Bill has placed mounted guards
around his buffalo ranch, for the Indians
are camping in the timber west of there
and in sight of the herd, and from their
suspicious actions he thinks they intend
to liberate the herd.
