IN THE RAILWAY WORLD
GOULD INFLUENCE , ON THE WANE ANOTHER' CHAPTER 18 TO BE : ADDED TO THE HISTORY OF AMERICAN RAILWAYS. The Christian Scilence Monitor gives the following article itn regard to the f passing of the Gould control: r "Whatever Inference may be drawn from the reported move of Kuhn, Loeb & Co., for the absolute control of the Missouri Pacific railway, the fact I is patent that another chapter Is I about to be added to the history of ( American railroad construction and I management. What may he lnews to t tile public has somne time oeen more than a rutmor to fintancialul circle. The Gould Interests are gradually relin tquishing their hold oin the properties built ulp and centralized by Jay Gotuld. That a little less than 25 per cent of Missouri Pacific stock is now owned by the Gould family and their close adherents shows that control is tend ing in another direction. With almost 4,000 miles of road and outstanding stock amonunting to $83,000,000, the Missouri Puclfic railways is, perhaps, one of the inmst important properties in the United States around whidh to wtage a contest. "As bankers for the Missouri Pa cifle the firm of Kuhn, Loch, & Co. must neessnarlly figure conspicuously in transactions relative to any new piollcy that may impend. B]lt back of surface inldieations lie other factors, vastly iluportulnt to tile future mtani agelpent of this and other railroads. ],'or ani Mr. lFtrrimanl followed Jay Gould, one pltnnling differently fromn the otllher, so mlen with still other mnetihods ntow occupy tile railroad field. Tile nalme of Hawley mlay yet have a somewhat distant sound. But it would not, be at all surprising if this railroad manager of the newer school were to work in the direction of a combination In which the Chesapeake & Ohio..and thel Denver & Rio Grande would be connecting links with the Missourt Pacific for another trans continmoltal line. "Tho hand of J. P. Morgan is not yet visible inl affairs having to do with Missourt Pacific stock. But while there seemnts to be solme uncer tainty as to the future, It is an in-I Itrest.ing speculation as to what a Mtorgan might have done toward pre venting tie 'Black Priday" of 1869. The several financial crises during the seventies showed the railroads to be dominated by speculative Inter eats. rattier than those of constructive tendencies. About this time the house of Gould appealred on the railroad horizon. When J. Pierpont Morgan called a confelrencle of railroad presl dents in January, 1889. Jay Could and his son George Gould were con spicuous llmembers oif the Ineeting which had for its purpose the stem tnlltg of ruinous comlpetilion. "Then. as now, th issue wan as a' o twteen railroad lnanugelentlt and finall clal backllng. Tite men whilo rlan the railroads and the men who furnished the money wanted a mutual accollnt ing. What they learned at that mneet Ilg In tile Morgan resldence did not please either party. Things wont on about as thlly had gone on before. The power of Jay (;ould, however, was not a maintle which fitted his eldest son. And the Missouri Paclfic uffair in only an incident in the (llmlnatilng process whlich was accentuateid whlelt Western Unilon Telegraph stock went from the Goulds to the American Tele phone & Telegraph company. "Iatis apparent that no etllods of former railroad ptarlods can well be countenanced tLday. TGoverlntlental supervisionl Inay not yet have reaiedi its highest devemloplenltlt, but iublic opinion has spoken loudly through fed eral authority. Alnerlean railroadingi has reached a stage where Ivgltinutto construction is not to heo offset by filancial obistructioll. If some of the great rilrould interests are finding fault. not unlikely the remedy lies elsewhere than with the public. The genius of railtroud tanlageltent in not always inl thle accumulation of money. 4tocks and dividends must have lit tegrity as a blending factor before the confidence which American railroad enterprises deserve is fully estab fished." HOLY SMOKE! Th|le stenographer nozedl in through the door Into the Ifice. }Her entrance itwlis 4n different frint her iiual. breezy mnunler, that the chief clerk paused. "Wlhat's the matter with you this morning?" he asked. "I'm cured. SHlnke-cured." replied the steno. I'n so b nlllloomin' full of smoke that I can hardly breathe, see. or smell. l'm the one orlilnal hard luck kid. There's no use talking about It, but there's a Jonah camping on my trail and the Jinx is on me for keeps. I've got anl oil stove in my room and I get up and light it before I'm up for the day. It gets to goin' good and I stretch out under thie covers and let her went. When the room is warml I get up. omeiu shan.Thal monkeyed with the doo-icckey this morning and I didn't know it. I got up and lit it. I went back to bed and began to saw another cord of wood. When I woke up I couldn't see the door even. You know what a smelly lamp Is. Well this was the limit. It nearly fin ished me and what it did to my clothes was a plenty. It's no use. If I ever got a few rags ahead something would happen along and spoil the outfit. But I'm through with the oil heater. No more for mine." L. 0, T. M. TO MEET. The t, 0. o. M. will hold au im portant meeting inl the 1. 0. 0. ', an nex at 3:30 p, m. All members are requested to attend.
