some of it is made of wood stock, and some of rags. A
thin sheet of rag paper is better than a thick sheet of
wood paper; it will fold better, take ink better, and, if it
is to he subjected to a good bit of handling, will last a
great deal longer. Wood paper can be furnished at a lower price than rag paper;
mind, we do not say it is cheaper. It may serve for a blank that Is to be used only
once or twice?but after being folded several times it will crack at the fold, maybe
break in two. You can notice this in wood envelopes?the edge will appear rough,

Scheme tu Rurich tbe Union Pacific Syn?
New York, Oct. 14.?The World to day
publish us an elaborate 'article on what It
calls "n fifty million dollar steal." in
connection with the sale and reorganiza?
tion of the Union Pacific Hallway, charg?
ing that the government .will lose $20,
000,000 of its just indebtedness end thi't
this vast sum will go *o enrich a syndi?
cate of Wall street bankers who were
contributors to the Hanna campaign
tund to the amount of about $2,000,000.
The at tide alleges that the bankers'
pool expects to clear $311,000,000 the gov?
ernment's mortgages on the Union Pacific
raiboad, which owes $53,000,000 to the
people, and claims that the road is worth
at least $150 000,000.
The World asserts that the "steal in?
volves an immediate loss to the govern?
ment of $20,000,000 and an ultimate loss
of over $50,000,000. and It will bo con?
summated within the uext twenty days
unless President McKinley interposes his
authority and protects the people.
"The Union Pacific Railway Company
owes the government over $53,000,000.
A pool of Wall street bankers has en?
gaged in a scheme of reorganization which
contemplates the payment of 02 per cent,
to the government, ;or less than $33,000,
000, while securities subordinate to that
of the government will obtain VtS per
cent, upon their claims.
"AH the leuul rights which the govern?
ment miuht avail of in the nursuit of the
plunderers who rilled the company treas?
ury are to bo abandoned, and terms of
sale have been fixed which absolutely bar
every rorm of competition nnd give the
pool a big pil/.e. There are scandalous
rumors traclmr a connection between this
colossal steal am! th?* subscriptions of
Wall street to t he Ilauna campaign fund
and the selection of at least one promi?
nent Cabinet official."
