To Investors, The Northern Pacific
Railroad Company has now built oauippod
and put in operation, nearly 517 miles of its
main .line of road through an excellent coun
try and along what is known as tho Valley
Route to thePaciQc. Tho finishod portions
already enjoy a largo and fast increasing
traffic, Tho soctions approaching completion
connect tho chain of Lakes with tho navigation
of the Upper Missouri and Columbia rivers
with Puget Sound, secure at once a large and
profitable business and entitle tho Company
to about 10,400,000 acres of cxcollent average
land in fee simple.
With these accomplished results, tho Com
pany offers, and is now rapidly selling, its
First Morgago Bonds, for completing tho
construction and oiuipmont of its road across
tho Continont After careful investisation.
we recommend theso bonds as a well secured
and unusually profitable investment Thoy
have 30 years to run; principal and interest
aro payable in gold; tho interest (seven and
threo-tenths per cent) is oqual now to about
syi per cent in currency. The coupon and
registered bonds can be exchanged for each
othor, at tho pleasuro of tho holder. Gold
chocks for tho somi-annual interost on tho
registered bonds aro mailed to tho post offico
address of the owner.
Those securities havo tho following elements
of strength and safety: Thoy are the obliga
tion of a strong corporation; they are also a
mortgago on the Road, its right of way, e iuip
luonts and franchises, and a first lean on its
net earnings. In addition to thi usually suf
ficient security, there is pledged for tho pay
ment of tho principal and interest a Grat of
land, averaging about 2o,000 Acres per Mile
for tho entire length of tho Road. At tho
average i)rice per aero at which other Land
Grants havo thus far been sold, this real estate
security will yield more than $liilt000 per
mile more than three times tho possible is
sue of bonds. , ,
Tho Company has already begun the pro
cess of redeeming and cancelling its first mort
carre binds, as thoy aro now being received,
at l.io in payment anu oxcuangu ior uiu com
