Is Soon to be Snorting Through the

STANLEY CAN COME HOME BY fiAlL.
Through tha Congo Country
to ho Projected.
H WILL BE A PROFITABLE ENTERrEISE
Kew Tokk. June 30. The grand project
of throwing open the Congo country by
means of a railroad which will overcome
the difficulties placed by nature in the path
way of commerce between Matadi and Stan
ley Pool, which means, in fact, the opening
of the entire middle portion of the African
continent, is calculated to awaken enthu
siasm in the breast of anyone who is inter
ested in the progress of mankind and in the
development of the resources of the earth.
Mr. Alfrea I.e Ghait, the Envoy Extraor
dinary and Minister Plenipotentiary of the
King'of the Belgians, at present in this city,
is particularly interested in the plan, al
though it docs not come properly within the
scope of his diplomatic duties. In speaking
of the project yesterday, he said:
Cne has only to look Into the matter to be
convinced not only of the great attractiveness
of ibis project from tbe standpoint of human
progress, but also of its importance and value
in a commercial sense. The conditions pre
sented are such as seem almost absolutely to
assure financial success. The engineers pro
pose to build the road in such a way that the
cost will bo as little as possible, and so that it
will at the earliest possible stage of its con
struction, even before the line is completed
half way to Stanley Pool, begin to eam a con
siderable and increasing re enue. Tbe2.50O,O00f.
now paid annually to human carriers will, of
course, be at once diverted into tbe coffers of
the company, and will alone pay all its oper
ating expenses and all its fixed charges. Then
you have to consider tbe vast growth of the
commerce of the region which is cortain to
follow close upon the opening of the continent
to commercial and industrial enterprise. Think
of the fact that 8.000 miles of navigable river
will be tbe cigantic feeder of this single line of
railroad. Supnose your great Mississippi bad

but one Iron link, like that which is proposed
on the Congo, as an outlet for her commerce.
Welt a lew years from now you will sec tho
Congo itself develop an enormous trade, equal
at least to that of tbe Mississippi in tbe early
part of this century and with the added ad
vantage of steam.
CONFIDENCE OF CAPITALISTS.
That the project inspires in wise heads tbe
utmost confidence from the start is shown by
the avidity with which the Bhares have been
subscribed in Europe. There are now but
400,000 worth of stock left to be subscribed.
It it is not taken at once b capitalists in tbe
United States they will not have the oppor
tunity much longer. Some other country will
take it. What tbe hesd of tbe Congo Free

would most like would be tbat the shares of
tbe company should be distributed among sev
eral ol tne great rowers, so mat me ranroaa
would have a thoroughly international cbar-
acter, and to prevent any possibility of absorp-
tlon by capitalists of any one country.
Tbe work will unquestionably be begun as
ann as nr.asible after the canital has been snb
scribed. Two months ago tbe engineers bad
not yet made their report. Now I have the
subj'anco of It just at band.
" io Commercial and Industrial Cora
r isned two pamphlets embodying
be studvof tbe conditions ot tbe
proiet .. e by its officers, and particularly
by its engineers. They are exceedingly inter
esting. 4 be proposed railroad is to have a gauge of
nearly 2 feet, steel rails welgbing about 43
pounds each, and steel ties placed about 2J
feet apart and weighing about 50 pounds eacn,
the entire track proper thus neighing 120 tons
to the mile. Tbe total length of the road will
bo 272 miles. Only the first 16 or 17 miles present
any important difficulties of construction. The
rest of tbe way may be established under ex
ceptionally easy conditions. Not only is tbe
ground much more accentuated for the first 16
or 17 miles, but much of the grading will have
to be done in the rock, while beyond tbat por
tion of tbe line the cuts mav be made for tbe
most part through clayey soil," and quite often
even in very light rand. Consequently, while
tbe cost of grading in tbe fiist portion
will amount to something like f.G,40U
a mile, in the remaining portion
It will cost only about (1,431 a
mile. In like manner, while in the first portion
tbe masonry work will cost about $2,914 a mile,
it will cost elsewhere only $7 75 a mile. In tbe
first score of miles particular precautions will
betaken to facilitate the flow of water where
it might cause disaster to the track. Here the
expenses of the establishment of artificial
water u ays, etc, will amount to $1,178 a mile,
and that for bridges to some 3,416 a mile. In
tbe region beyond tbe Palaballa these expenses
will be respectively only (486 and (1,464 a mile.
On the other hand, tbe general expense of
maintaining the operations of building will
increase as they advance, as the distance of
transportation, in fact, increases. This item,
as regards the first section, is estimated at only
$5,020 a mile, while for tho last section of 37
miles near btanley Pool it will be 6.966 a mile.
TBE BOUTE OF THE BOAD.
The point of departure of the railroad on the
Lower Congo will be Matadi, a point which
may be easily reached by ocean steamships and
where the construction of inexpensive works
will permit these vessels to "transfer their car
goes directly to the cars. Ihe point of arrival
at Stanley Pool will be Ndolo, a short distance
above Kincbassa and all tbe rapids which ob
struct navigation in tbe vicinity of the cataracts.
I"rom this point vessels of light draft may go
up tbe Congo and its tributaries for an un
broken distance of 7,183 miles. Ndolo is ad-
mirably situated for tbe establishment of
spacious w harves. Matadi and Ndolo will be
the principal stations, but a secondary station
will be established In tbe district of Kinipese,
wberotiavelers will be obliged to halt, as it
yriH require two days to go from Matadi to
Stanley Pool, trains not running during the
night. There will also be three other stations
on the line one at Lufu, another at InkissI
and the last at Ntampa, thus dividing the total
distance between the Lower Congo and Stanley
Pool into five sections, each ono of an average
length of 531-f miles. Each section will be itself
divided into four sab-sections, each one of
which will be provided with water tanks and
It Is calculated tbat the expense of operating
the road, on tbe basis of two trains per week in
either direction, will be about $210,000. To this
are to be added about 250,000 as interest at 5
per cent upon tbe capital employed in construc
tion. It is therefore estimated tbat a revenue
490,000 per j ear will pay all expenses and a
Firofit besides. A great saving will be effected
or tbose who are already engaged in commerce
in tbe Congo region by tbe use of the railroad.
Tbe present system ot transportation affords no
guarantee either of celerity or surety. Much
merchandise reaches its destination in a dam
aged condition, and It sometimes requires sev
eral months for packages to arrive at Stanley
PooL The system of transportation upon tbe
backs of men compels tbe expensive packing of
goods in order to withstand the vicissitudes of
the long and laborious journey. Merchants
or agents frequently spend an entire month in
traveling from tbe mouth ot tbe river to Stan
ley Pool. It requires but very little thought to
realize the Immense revolution which will take
place in that region, but recently partly awak
ened from its long night of ignorance, oppres
sion and isolation, when tbe first locomotive
screeches forth its warning along tbe shores of
of tbe Congo, from Matadi to Leonoldviile,
above the falls, borne idea of tbequicV growth
which Is likely to result to tbe trade of tbe
Congo valley may be gained when it is stated
tbat at the present time tbe number of human
carriers is never known to be equal to tbe actual
demand for them, and tbat theamonnt of goods
transported has never been limited save by that
PLKNTY OP BUSINESS.
That there will be no lack of tribute to the
new line of railway Is apparent from tbe fact
tbat tbe Upper Congo and its affluents form an
immense network of navigable channels, pre
senting no less thn 14,375 miles in length of
shore. The country bordering upon each is in
habited by a population of no less than 2a,00u,
000 persons, as estimated by Stanley. All of
these people are eaecr to obtain tbe manufact
ured p'oducts of America and Europe, and
their neb soil will furnish valuable raw ma
terial In return to bo employed in tbe Industries
of the civiliied world. To-day Ivory Is the sole
nrndnct which reaches the .coast. Bix years
ago only a few elephant tusks found their way
below btanley Pool. Since the opening of tbe
caravan route tho progress of the ivory trade
has been astonishing. Iho capital represented
by the amount of ivory now actually trans
ported each year, from the interior to tbe west
ern cast, along the Congo, certainly exceeds
$500,000. In a very brief time, should this rail
road be constructed, all of tbe ivory of Central
Africa will follow the course of tbe Congo,
and once more tbe saying will be verified tbat
a great river is moving a roadway. India rubber
is also transported in small quantities by the
caravans but Its value is hardly sufficient to
support tbe expense of KuOper ton which is
actually required to deliver it at tbe seaboard.
With the advent of tbe railroad this expense
will be reduced to too per ion, ana me immense
uantities of India rnbber in the interior of
"Africa will then be freely ex
mrted to Europe
Besides this, tbere are
dred other products which would naturally
find an outlet upon we consummation ox una
Iho officers of tbe company have devoted
considerable attention to the question of tbe
climate of tbe region of the Congo. Tbey
maintain tbat later experience proves tbat the
European can sojourn for several years In tbe
Valley of the Congo without greatly endanger
ing his health. Tbe death rate In tbat region
decreases in rroportlop as comfort increases.
They present a number of questions which
they attempt to answ er categorically.
CLIMATE AND TEADE.
Can it be hoped that the white man can estab
lish himself definitely on tbe Congo and there
take root? All those who have traveled in the
region of tbe Upper Loualaba and of tbo
Katanga, to which the discovery of the navi
gability of tbe Lomamihas just given access,
describe these regions as rich in minerals of all
kinds, gold Itself being found there, and as ex
ceedingly healthy, and tbey say tbat tbey are
convinced tbat the European may tbere be
come fully acclimated and may prosper.
Can there be found among tbe blacks tbe
number of workmen necessary to tbe construc
tion of tbe railway? Without the least diffi
culty, answer the projectors In fact, no one
can doubt this who is aware tbat south of the
Congo, between Saint Paul de Jjoanda and
Ambaca, the Portuguese have constructed a

railroad with no other laborers save the blacks
to perform the work of grading.
Can cattle be introduced Into tbe Congo and
will they thrive there? The experience of ten
years past proves that the prospect ot raising
large stock in the Congo may be regarded with
tbe greatest confidence.
Are not sanguinary struggles with the negro
tribes to be fearedT No; the social and polit
ical condition of tbe blacks Is a guarantee for
tbo security of new enterprises, and the history
of the past ten years demonstrates that one
need not fear any grave troubles on tbe Congo.
Have the negroes any commercial aptitude?
Jl'.cs, and very great aptitude, too. Stanlev has
said tbat the aboriginal of Africa is a born
trader. Du Cballln. tbe French explorer,
make's almost the same statement, and adds
that. If once the rivers are opened freely to
civilized speculators, tbe passion of tbe abo
riginals for commerce will quickly develop
the abnndant resources of the country. The
ardor of the negroes for trading constitutes,
perhaps, the greatest chance of success for this
great African work. When tbe European met
the proud races of America he was not able to
establish a reciprocal contact with them at
once: they receded before him. and, in reality,
the European did not subjugate the red man,
but suppressed him. Here there is nothing of
tbat sort to fear. The mercantile sr so
strongly developed in tbe negro, leads blu nat
urally to approach the white man, to emr into
relations with bim and to become his auxiliary.
By the contact of tbe-two races we shall suc
ceed, not in suppressing the negro race, but, on
tbe contrary, in fortifying it and civilizing it
and, later, in emancipating it.

New York, June 30. Justice Power, at

served his decision iu the case of John C.
Allen, a stock broker, who is complainant
against August "Wolf, aged CO years, on a
charge of grand larceny. On May 6 last,
"Wolf rushed into Allen's office, greatly ex
cited, and asked for a loan of f 1,600. Allen
asked lor security, and Wolf promised to
' return and give him a check. He did not
come back, and Allen went to won s nouse,
two days later, and according to Allen,
pointed a revolver at him and said: "Sit
down. JTow take pen and ink. Write out
a check for $500 and give me an I. O. V.
for the remaining $1,000."
Wolf, however, had no money in the
bank, and the check was therefore worth
less. "I'm a gambler," Wolf said, "and I
lost the 51,500 at one sitting."
