Lots of Work Cut Out for the Roada
Running into Chi
It Appears That the Line8 Are
Short of Passenger
The Great Northern Veolares a Dividend
Payable Nov. --Increase in Pull
Much attention is being bestowed at
present upon the relations of the railroads
to the World's fair and the part they have
to play in making it a success. Without
efficient measures adopted on the part of
the roads for bringing people to Chicago
the fair cannot be made a financial success,
and, therefore, the facilities of the roads
for doing what is required of them is a
matter of more than ordinary interest. It
has been computed that to make the fair
the success that is hoped for it the admis
sions must foot uno in the neighborhood of
25,000,000. Of those the roads are expected
to bring in 20,000,000. The fair is to be
open for six months, and in order to do
what is required of them the roads will
have to land in the city every day the fair
is open, not counting Sundays, 127,000 peo
ple. Can they do it?
There are twenty passenger roads run.
ning into Chicago at the present time. The
combined passenger equipment is 6,161 oars.
Not the sixth part of these card are in use
in running trains into Chicago, at least so
far as the roads not doing a suburban bus
iness are concerned. Theothers are needed
on other parts of the companies' systems.
Were every through train now running into
Chicago to contain eight cars, and every car
to contain sixty people, the number that all
the roads combined would unload each
day would be 56,160. The number of ears
making up these trains would be 936. The
number required to bring on 127,000 would
be 2,117. The additions required to give
the roads enough equipment to properly
handle the people would be twice the dif
ference between 936 and 2,117, or 2,362.
None of them has now any dore rolling
stock than is senfficient to take care of its
ordinary business. Some of them are sorely
pressed at times even now to furnish ac
commodation to parties demanding it at
their hands. During the last summer the
Michigan Central road had in quite a num
ber of cases to decline furnishing special
trains to parties seeking them and willing
to guarantee the company's own price for
them. It simply had not the cars to handle
the business. Yet the Michigan Central is
as well equipped a road as runs into Chi
cago. From this it would appear that the
roads are all wofully short of passenger
equipment and that they will prove unequal
to the work assigned them during the
world's fair, unless they take very energetic
means of providing themselves with the
necessary rolling stock.-Chicago Post.
Ohio & Mississippi Changes.
Rumors concerning a change in the
ownership of the Ohio & Mississippi road
have again been put in circulation. The
committee of London stockholders have, it
is said, obtained a majority of the stock by
proxy, and are now engaged in negotiating
a deal presumably in the interests of the
Baltimore & Ohio road. The annual meet
ing of the Ohio & Mississippi has been post
poned till Oct. 16, no as to enable it to get
through with its negotiations with the
Baltimore & Ohio. Whatever the result
of these negotiations may be, it is
said that important changes will be made
in the board of directors. The Ohio & Mis
sissippi has been managed in the interest
of the Baltimore & Ohio for years. Its
line has furnished the latter road
direct connection between Cincinnati and
St. Louis, and close tratffic contracts now
exist between the two companies. The
Baltimore & Ohio has been working to se
cure the property on its own terms, and
has in various ways avoided a settlement
with the owners, while at the same time
keeping the road out of hostile hands. The
negotiations which are now deolared to be
completed have been pending for a year.
The Vanderbilt-Morgan interests through
M. E. Ingalls, president of the Chesapeake
& Ohio, made earnest efforts this summer
to secure cantrol in order o give the Chesa
peake & Ohio direct connection with St.
Louis. These efforts doubtless brought the
Baltimore & Ohio to realize the importance
of prompt action and hastened the con
summation of the deal. If the deal is car
ried out it will further strengthen the
position of the Baltimore & Ohio as a trunk
line. Whether or not the Vanderbilts can
obstruct the execution of the plan agreed
upon by Mr. Bacon with the English stock
holders of the Ohio & Mississippi depends
largely upon how complete have been the
negotiations conducted abroad.
The new financial policy of the Baltimore
& Ohio railroad haslbeen outlined. It is said
that $10,000,000 new stock will be issued.
The ulan is to use $2,000,000 in carrying out
the deal made last January with the Pitts
burg & Western railroad; to reserve $5,000.
000 for betterments and improvements, and
to distribute $8,000,000 as a stock dividend.
Conservative bankers estimate that between
$3:,000,000 and $4,000,000 Baltimore & Ohio
stock has been purchased by Engiish in
vestores recently. All the floating stock in
the market is believed to have been ab
sorbed. Some of the foreign purchasers
are said to have been induced by the knowl
edge that the deal with the Ohio & Missis
sippi would be effected.
CHICAGo, Oct. 14.-Isaac M. Pullman,
who controls the stock of the Pullman
Palace Car company, has decided that at
the annual meeting of the company to
morrow the capital stock shall be increased
from $21,000,000 to $30,000,000.
Great Northern Dividends.
NEW YORK, Oct. 14.--The directors of the
Great Northern system at the regular quar
terly meeting to-day declared a dividend
of 13- per cent payable Nov. 2.
The wheat movement in the northwest
has reached prodigious proportions, and
still continues. In one week Duluth and
Minneapolis together received 3:,1)0,0000
bushels, and at Duluth alone 3,726 carloads
were inspected in the week, the receipts
there being 2,298,093 bushels.
The corn crop of the state of Kansas alone
for this year is estimated at the tremendous
amount of 160,400,000 bushels, which is
enough to give more than two bushels and
a half to every man, women and child in
the country, and means an immense bus
iness for the railroads and prosperity for
the Kansas farmers.
The Louisville & Nashville railroad is a
good example of southern properties that
are doing well for their owners. The fig
ures for the year ended June 30 show a sur
plus of $656.000 earned after paying all
charges and five per cent dividend on the
stock. The company earned nearly six and
one-half per cent on the stock.
Superintendent Cardin has ordered wheat
shipments to the Northern Pacific Elevator
company to stop for the present, the 500.000
bushel elevator being full. The company
is buying grain at eighty elevators and
warehouses along the Northern Pacific line,
and will handle from two to four million
bushels during the season.

MR. HOLTER'S ALLEY.
Closed Up Because Some Persons Wanted
to Use It as a Corral.
Mr. A. M. Holter has seen an Brticle in
an evening paper of yesterday concerning
the cul-de-sac running back of the Granite
and Bailey blocks and opening into Sixth
avenue. The article says: "As a matter of
right, the alley should have been run
through to Edwards street long ago. but it
was permitted to be closed on Edwards
street and is to be closed on Sixth avenue,
unless some action is taken to prevent it.
It is surmised by some that Mr. Holter has
taken this action for the reason that the
city refused him permission to buildta one
story house between the Bailey and: Gold
blocks," Mr. Holter says he was obliged
to put a fence at Sixth avenue, closing up
the onul-de-esac, because parties were; using
it for a corral and as a sort of commons.
Owners and tenants of buildings adjoining
the ground who have occasion to rise the
"alley," Mr. Holter says, have always been
permitted to do so.

We are grleved to see students going out from
school after a few weeks' course in some busi
ness college (our own not excepted), only half
itted to perform the ordinary duties of business
life. It is true that we can furnish the finishing
touches in the science of accounts to, and make
a firestclass acountant out of a person who has
had two or three years' experiencein business for
himself or his employer, in three months' time,
for he realizes what his deficiencies are and whst
principles must necessarily be well impressed on
his mind; but we canpot make a frst-cleas book
keeper out of a student who has had no previous
knowledge of actual business in less than six
No school can consoientiously advertise to
complete a course in either shorthand or book
keeping in less time, for neither science can be
completed in less time, to say nothing of other
branches absolutely necessary to the qualification
of a first-class stenographer or bookkeeper.
Students often come to us, having been promised
a situation by some business man, to qualify for
one position, as if his whole esnores depended
on that one position. He asks us to fit him for
that position in the short time of one month or
six weeks He performs his duties to the satis
faction of his employer, perhaps, but when he
comes to cope with a first-class bookkeeper or
stenographer, alae! he is "left." to use the school
boy expression. A sad experience teaches many
that it is better to be fully competent, though it
cost more, than partially fitted, to cope with an
Now we want students to come for a term of
six months. in which time we guarantee to give
them a complete course, if they make good use
of thi-r time. The theory of bookkeeping will
consume about four months, taking into consid
eration the other necessary branches. The other
two months will be siven to business practice.
We mean to go further than ravertise a business
practice department. We shall have it in our
school and get out of it the best results possible.
We have the best room for this department in
Realizing that many students are not able to
lay out much money in an education, we shall
reduce tuition for six months from 150 to $40.
This reduction will, we think, be appreciated by
many students who are economic in their ex
penditure of money. The rednetion will take
effect at once, and continue until Oct. 80, 1891.
Although the Montana Business College has
done but little advertising, except through its
students, it has been well patronized, as students
and others friendly to its existence are aware.
This can be accounted for only in the fact that it
was founded by men of integrity and moral
worth, and oept alive on principles of true merit
Its prsent manager hopes to make it the ideal
business college of Monlane. It takes time to
build up a school that will meet the approval of
an intelligent people such as we have in Meon
