GLENWOOD EXTENSION IS EX-
PECTED TO SWELL EARNINGS.
They Have It All Figured Out That the
Stock Will Go On More Than a 4
Per Cent BasisAttitude Toward
Great Northern Causes Comment in
Special to The Journal.
New York, Nov. 1.The rapid and
rather spectacular rise in Soo line com
mon and preferred, the former to a new
high record, has been accompanied by
remarkably few rumors. I has been
done partly by the straight, outright
buying of a few thousand shares of
stock, but largely by the speculative
buying of the pool formed here some
months ago by a prominent ex-congress
man, who has predicted Soo at par this
year and has often before been identi
fied with the movements of this stock
and Canadian Pacific.
The present outside buying is from
those who think that with the comple
tion of the Glenwood extension this
company will get a net earning capacity
that will justify the placing of the
stock on a dividend basis higher than
4 per cent. They argue that the Cana
dian Pacific, having carried its invest
ment at a loss for many years, is now
willing to see the dividend return as
high as the Soo line can consistently
make it. They also argue that the net
capitalization per mileless than $40,-
000 per mileis far lower than the av
erage on the roads of the northwest.
There is probably some other reason
for the buying, for it is a fact that the
buyers have faith, and that some of
them at least have bought real stock in
the market on the belief that it is going
higher. The facts set forth above are
given for what they are worth. They
are exactly the kind of talk that any
one may hear in the offices where the
better part of the trading in these is
sues goes on.
Back of it all, of course, there are
some facts outside of these. I is now
pretty generally believed that the Soo
line is a Canadian Pacific. weapon
against the Hill lines. In this fact
there are potentialities that may amount
to a great deal. No one knows when
the aggression of the Great Northern
will drive the Canadian Pacific into a
course of reprisal that will lead to an
attempt to make the Soo line a real
competitor of the Great Northern and
Burlington for transcontinental trade.
Such a result of the enmity between
these two great interests would almost
certainly result in the pushing of the
Soo line thru to Chicago, along ihe lines
There are certainly some interesting
things in the situation of the lines in
the northwest at present. The anxiety
with which the Soo line people disclaim
any intention to invade the territory of
Great Northern by building the Thief
Eiver branch, which cuts directly across
four Great Northern spurs, is ominous.
As one old northwestern railroadman
puts it: "When they fight openly it's
bad enoughbut when they get polite
it's 1! And Mr. Lowry is polite
about his invasion of the territory that
Mr. Hill guards so carefully.
FIGHT THE GOULD LINES
United States Steel Corporation With
holds Long Haul Tonnage.
Pittsburg, Nov. 1.-Traffic managers
of the United States Steel corporation
have been instructed to give no freight
to the Gould lines for shipments west,
other than to points local on those lines.
This means that the fight of the Colo
rado Fuel and Iron company is being
opposed by the big corporation against
the Gould interest in the Rocky
mountain steel concern, and probably ft
means also that the Wabash will be
compelled to fight hard to secure ton
nage from the Carnegie Steel company
xinder the contract signed by Andrew
Carnegie two years ago.
