Only Fire Lines Go Into Hands of Receivers.' Record for Half Year Is En tirely Satisfactory. 217 MILES INVOLVED. The Aggregate in Bonds and Stock Is Small. Other Items of Interest Bail way People. to The railroad receivership record for the first six months of this year are, according to statistics prepared by the Railway Age, very satisfactory. Thus far in 1907 the railways have been . able to meet their obligations and maintain their solvency, with the exception of five small roads whose embarrassments began long before the present year. The total length of these lines is only-21 7 miles, the bonds involved aggregate $1,775,000, and the nominal capital stock Is $5,450,000. Compared with the receivership record for the - first six months of 1906 the number of roads is the same, the mileage is thirty-three miles more. but the capital involved is only about one-eighth of that seeking receiver ships in the corresponding period year ago. The following Is the list for the last half year: Medford & Crater Lake, 11 miles no bonds; $200,000 capital stock; Mis souri River & Northwestern, 35 miles $700,000 bonds; $1,000,000 capital stock; jNortneast Texas, 19 miles; $75, 000 bonds; $250,000 capital stock Chattanooga Southern, 86 miles; no bonds; $3,000,000 capital stock; Colo rado & Northwestern, 67 miles; - $1 000.000 bonds;-. $1,000,000 capital stock. Total five roads, 217 miles $1,775,000 bonds; $5,450,000 capital stock. Total bonds and stock, $7,225, 000 capital stock. Of these five small roads, which comprise this listr none owes its em barrassment to recent financial condi tions. The Medford & Crater Lake is the successor of an old undertaking in Oregon, which is now to be completed. For the purpose of financing it was placed in the hands of a receiver and a few weeks later was sold under foreclosure for reorganization. Explanations. The Missouri River & Northwestern was also placed In court to clear up the title previous to undertaking a large extension. The Northeast Texas was part of the property of a lumber ing company, and is to be reorganized for extension. The Chattanooga Southern was sold by the stockholders last year at a remunerative price to the Louisville & Nashville, but receivership pro ceedings were started recently by a contracting company which had an unsettled claim against the old rail road company.. The Teceivership of the .-Colorado & Northwestern is a sequence of long standing embarrass ments and is expected .to be followed by a more prosperous career. For the past seven years and more railway defaults and receiverships have been few and comparatively un important, with the exception of the needless wrecking of the Cincinnati, Hamilton & Dayton-Pere Marquette combination, at the close of 1905. Will the gratifying record of solvency go on or is it soon to appear that the long-continued war upon corporations has so impaired the borrowing and earning power of the railways that a new era of receiverships and fore closures is at hand? The number of roads still in the hands of receivers is small, and, for the present at least, foreclosure sales necessarily are few. In the past six months six roads were sold covering on!v 114 miles, with a capitalization of $13,777,000, as follows: Foreclosure sales Peoria & Pekin Terminal. 10 miles: bonds, $977,000; How Good Food may Turn to Poison. Tr" ECAY Is not digestion, you know. even when It takes place in the stomach. Food decayed in the body after being eaten Is a3 dangerous to health as food decayed before being eaten. Food nourishes or poisons, just accord ing to how long it remains in the Bowels undigested. Most of the Digestion occurs In the thirty feet of Intestines. They are lined with a set of Httle mouths, that squeeze Digestive Juices into the Food eaten. The Instestines are also lined with millions of little suction pumps, that draw the Nutri ment from Food, as It passes them In going through. But, when the Bowel-Muscles are weak, the Food moves too slowly to stimulate the little Gastric Mouths and there is no flow or too little flow of Digestive Juice, to change the food into nourishment. Then, the food decays In the Bowels, and the little suction pumps draw Poison from the decayed Food, into the blood, in stead of the Nutrition they should have drawn. Now, C as carets contain the only com bination of drugs that Stimulates these Muscles of the Bowels and Intestines just as a Cold Bath, or open-air Exercise, stim ulates a Lazy Man. Cascarets therefore act like Exercise. They produce the same sort of Naturl result that a Six Mile walk In. the country would produce without any injurious Chem ical effect.

Total, six roads, 114 miles; bonds, $6,277,000; capital stock, $7,500,000. Total bonds and stocks, $13,777,000. Of the six roads sold two are im portant terminal companies which are now owned by groups of railways centering respectively at Peoria, 111. and Toledo. O.. and have been financed so that there is no likelihood of failure hereafter to meet obliga tions. The sale of the Houston, Brazos & Northern is an echo of the collapse several years ago of an ambitious un dertaking started as successor to the Texas Western, which, had built short road, abandoned it and .forfeited Its charter. The new company started to construct a . new line and had graded fifty miles and laid four miles of track, when it, too, failed for lack of visible assets. The foreclosure sale indicates the effort of a creditor to save something out of the wreckage in cne rorm or rignt or way. me . Traverse City, Leelanau & Manistique is a branch line of the Grand Rapids & Indiana, and the sale. was a formal act for the perfection of title. Altogether the foreclosure record for the past six months is of little significance as to recent condi' tions. SIOODT'S MANUAL REPORTS. Amount of Money Invested In Rail roads Is Surprising. The edition of Moody's Manual for iu, aDout to be issued, contains Bur prising statements as to the amount of capital invested in railways, industrials and mines on the North American con tinent. Under four classifications of steam railroads, public utilities, Indus trial and miscellaneous corporations and mining companies, the Manual finds an aggregation of $32,500,000,000 of capital represented in the United States, with $2,648,000,000 more accredited to Canada and Mexico. In the steam railroad division the Manual reports on a total of 256,301 miles of railroad, of which 222,013 are in the United States. This latter figure is about 2,000 in excess of the estimate by the interstate commerce commis. sion of the mileage on June 30, 1906, but this is more than covered by the construction which .we know has been completed since the date named. The figures for the steam railroad dl vision are thus tabulated: Mileage re ported. 232,013; companies reporting, 1,- 419; capital stock, $5,279,904,040; bonded debt, $8,628,552,804; . . total stocks and bonds. $13,508,456,846. This total of capitalization Is larger by $103,000,000 than that given in the last interstate commerce commission statls tics. Under the head of public utilities in the United States the following figures are given: Electric tractions Mileage reported, 30,824; companies reporting, 1,109; cap! tal stock, $2,195,172,000; bonded debt, 227,590,000; total, $4,432,764,000.

Experts Will Formulate Standard as to Composition and Manufacture. New York. July 9. It is not expected that there will be a new standard steel rail or a new schedule of steel rail prices agreed upon until September, at the earliest. The conference of steel rail manufacturers and railroad presi dents adjourned at the call of the chair man of the convention. E. H. Gary, chairman of the Steel Corporation, for the purpose of allowing the two com mittees to formulate a concrete plan or plans, to be approved by the two bodies. The committees consist of 18 memDers, oil rst whom are exDerts in the steel rail question. There is a committee of nine appointed by the American Kail- way association, ana a similarly m posed committee of the steel rail manu facturers. These experts are to revise the exist ing methods of manufacturing rails and tr B?r,p unon a new standard rail. It will be standard as to the composition and practice of manufacturing. On several points th railways and the fcteel manufacturers are now agreed. It is a comparatively easy matter, there fore to nredict that the new steel rail will be heavier and will have a thicker web and a thicker flange. One of the innovations in the rail business that is clearly Indicated by the conferences already held and the un animity with which the idea was sup ported, is that there is to be a sliding scale of prices. The Republic corres pondent has the highest authority in stating that, while there is to be a standard ran, wnicn win cui a. uo. price, railroads which desire to buy rail of a higher quality of steel will be able to do so. ALL RATES MUST BE REDUCED. Interstate Schedules Will Have to Meet 2 Cent State Basis. S. Eustis. passenger traffic man- mrer of the Burlington system, says that since the z-cent law is in eucti in practically all the western siai.es, me Interstate rates will be reduced as soon as possible. He says further: At first the railroads inougnt ior loo-ni rraanns it would be necessary to abstain from that form of voluntary reduction of revenue wnicn win ronow if interstate rates are reduced from 3 to 2 cents a mile. As time passed, it became more and more impossible to rr,aintnin throuih fares on the old ba sis and It has been determined' the le gal phase of the question Is not so im portant as at nrsi supposed, xue rail roads are now revising interstate tar iffs as fast as rate clerks can do it and have applied to the Interstate com merce commission for special dispen sation to permit making new inter state rates in each district as fast , as the tariffs can be published without the necessity of the required thirty davs' public notice. The rates from Nebraska to points In nearby states, like Iowa, Illinois, Missouri and Colorado, can soon be re figured. Rates to points like Chicago, St. Louis or St. Paul can also soon be reflgured, but it will take a long time to adjust all fares to and from all points in the United States. I think it will take a year to rearrange all the tariffs in the United States. The roads hesitated about deciding what they would do until after the difficulty in Misouri was settled, but have now decided to leave it to the attorneys to get the cases into court by some previous act and to abide by iwiirgsiM jy 1 1 fry i iij j AYfegetable Preparatlonfor As similating ttieFoodandBeguIa ling the S toinachs aiatBawels of Promotes DigestionJCheerful ness andTtesLContains neither Ctoium.Morplune nor Mineral.

When such sweeping changes are made in schedules, it is, of course necessary that many kicks will ap pear which were not at first foreseen and which will have to soon be rem edied by a new time card. This will not be so sweeping but will straighten out some of the irregularities. Most of the changes are meeting with the approval of the people who live along the lines of the Burlington and many have much better accommodations than they had before. TEXAS ANTOPASS LAW. Its Stringent Provisions to Be Rigidly Enforced Chicago, July 9. The Texas antipass law. which becomes effective July 11, is giving considerable worry to the of- hcials here of lines running into that state. Stringent orders have been sent to all agents and conductors to take no chances whatever. The law is very strict and forbids the issuance of passes to any but bona fide employes of the railroads and their families or persons dependent upon them. Certain state of ficials. when engaged in official busi ness for the state, are also exempted The law also applies to the telegraph and express companies. Any violation of the law Is punish able by a fine of 15,000, this to be levied against Hie corporation. The person issuing the pass or express or telegraph frank is liable to a fine of 500, or as high as $2,000, and may also be sent to the penitentiary for six months to two years. Any person not entitled to a pass who applies for one is subject to a fine of from 1500 to J2.000. At the general offices here of Texas roads information has been secured that some of the state officials who are not In the exempted class intend to ap ply for passes in order to test the law. Positive instructions have been sent all agents to refuse such applications, as the railroads are not anxious for any costly tests, and will obey and enforce the new statute to the letter. CONDITIONS IMPROVING. Railroaders Think There Will Be a 70 Per Cent Wheat Crop.

SHAKE UP IN HEW YORK Mayor McCleHan Makes Three Impor tant Changes In Help. New Tork, July 9. Mayor McOlel lan has shaken up the city adminis tration removing one official, accept ing the- resignation of a second and demanding- the resignation of a third. Corporation Counsel William B. Ellison was summarily dismissed, the mayor giving as his reason for his action" the fact that complete con fidence liad not existed between them for' some time. McDonough Graven, commissioner of street cleaning, offer ed his resignation to the mayor and It was accepted. The mayor demanded the resigna tion of Civil Service Commissioner Alfred J. Talley on the ground that some one was required in the posi tion who would give more time to it. Mr. Talley at once presented his resig nation in a letter in which he dendel the imputation made by the mayor. The vacancies were all Immediately filled. IT IS TONED DOWN. Mrs.' Gould's Complaint Is Modified bj Justice McCall. New Tork, July 9. The two most sensational allegations in the suit of Katherlne Clemmons Gould for a. separation from Howard Gould have, been stricken out of the complaint by order of Supreme Court Justice Mc Call. The sections of the complaint stricken out are those which allege in fidelity on the part of Mr. Gould and that he tampered with Mrs. uouia s mall. A third section of the complaint whioh Mr. Gould sought to have re moved from the complaint charges him with having had his wife watched, by detectives. This allegation th court allowed to remain in the complaint. lyjliiillti Twa anrnwii MM
