Pittsburg, Maysville & Cin. R. R.
The Director of the Fiitsburg,
Maysvilla and Cincinnati Railroad
Cornpaojr have just published an exhib
it of the BfTairs of the company, and
urge an appeal to the friends pi the en
terprise to purchase the domestic bonds
of the company, to create and adequate
basis for a half million loan on the
credit of the company.
These bonds run six years with in
terest. payable annually," at the rate ol
seven per cent, of their'par value which
is equal to a ten per cent, investment
The American Railroad Journal
speaks very encouragingly of Railroad
bond. It says, "In a few instances
where coupens have not been paid, the
bonds have been issued ia violation of
what may be considered infallible test
of the goodness of a security."
The editor states "that the original
costs of good roads does not exceed
25,000 dollars per mile any increase
should be in consequence of an in
creased amount of business."
The original cost of the Pittsburg,
Maysville and Cincinnati Railroad is
estimated at only $20,000 per mile, a
saving of twenty per cent, to start.
The fact," says the editor, "tliat one
half of this amount can be contributed
by the community upon the line of a
road, is ample evidence of their abili
ty to supply a trallic that will yield 7
per cent, nctt upon an equal sum."
"All this matter of trusting Railroads
may be reduced to the simplest method.
There need be no mistake?, and there
are none, except in cases where the ob
vious bounds of prudence are over
stepped, or the public has been seduced
into purchasing by excessive low pri
ces which of themselves are evidence
that the securities lack certain elements i
necessary to its safety." "That one
half the cost of a road is supplied from
local contributions, is a sufficient guar
anty that it will be well managed." .
From .past experience, it appears
that railroad securities paying original
purchasers from eight to 10 per cent,
without inconvenience or trouble are
the best and safest investments that can
'03rln the present war in the East,
the Sultan and his Western friends
have been put to some expense, as the
following table indicates:
British Loans extraordinary

Multiply the above total by four,
and you will have an approximation to
the actual expenses incurred by the
great powers of Europe since the com
mencement of the difficulty between
Russia and Turkey.
