ze clude the value of Pullman cars or ed

)n- cars, $72,000,000.
an The publication is intended to show
'er the estimate placed upon the railroads m

ily to give their market value rather than d
led the tax valuations. In a note it is ex
by plained that "The value submitted
tat was determined, not with a view to
ye, discovering a proper purchase price o
in for the railways of the United States,
