The anual report of 205 railroads shows that their grcsi earnings for 1896 amounted to $924,359,000, la gain of about t'hre* millions over the preceding year. The mileage ■of these roads increased slightly during 1896, which makes their ' earnings per mile aboui the same as in 1895, hut last year's earnings j shows a considerable increase in the average per mile over 1894. The I question of how much profit ought jto eotue out of such receipts is forc ed by their very magnitude. The j 6gives are certainly large. When | the public is paying $6000 for oper ating the average mile of railroad | track iv the average year, it is all the traffic ought to be expected to bear. The profit? from such gross receipts should ho large, as undoubt edly they would be if it were not for the school of financiers who would rather wreck a railroad for the profits on its "reorganization" than manage it for the return on its fair and legitimate business. There are nine component parts in success in business;: X Kit Determination,, Veracity., K&ergy, Regularity, Tact, independence Sncerity, Eec nom} And peculiarly bq, the initial let ter of each part furuishs the key to the whole — advertise —Ex..
