GOULD ON THE OUTLOOK. ll TALK ON THE RESULTS OF HI9 SOUTH? WESTERN TRIP. sTUBTNESS DULI., Bt'T A MORE HOPEFUL 1T.EL D*0 PREVAIL!*?GOOD PHYSICAL CONDITION OP THE GOULD ROADS-**RC">IN<J THB AMENDMENT OF THE INTER? STATE COMMERCE LAW. George J. Gould kioka ruddy and refreshed as a result of his two ?week?' tour In the Southwest, from which he has Just returned. He was at his offlce yesterday and found a mass of affairs "requiring attention, which kept him busy most of the day. He went to Lakewood, N. J., on the 1:45 p. m. train, but spared a few minutes for a chat with a Tribune reporter. Mr. Gould ex? pressed himself as greatly enj"yin< the tri;., al? though lt required attention'to details connected ?with the Missouri Pacific system. "We travelled j over the Iron Mountain road from St. Louis lo | Texarkana," Mr. QooM said, "then over the Texas Pacific to Kig Springs In the western part | of the State, and then bark to Mlnneola. From that place we took the International and Great Northern to QalTCStoa and then tonk the South? ern Pacific to New-Orleans. I shot one 'lay In Arkansas and one lay in Western Texas, hag*-t:.? a lot of ducks, quail, prairie chickens and snipe." Touching on the business and railroad outlook Mr. Gould Bald' "BlUdtMSS i.s extremely dull in the Southwest; not more than one-third of the normal volume of business is being transacted. The physical condition of our railroads, however, ls excellent, and when the revival of trade sets In they will be in splendid shape to handle the traffic economically. The people of"" the West ar? f'.-'ir.g more hopeful, however, and they look to an improvement as ?moon as Congress gets out of the way. Mer? chants and manufacturers are alike walting for a settlement of th" tariff question, and when that ls definitely arranged, no matter what the basis ?may be, there ls a sentiment that business will pick up. A baals will be furnished on Which "people can begin operations, and while the tariff law may do harm in some directions lt may be ?beneficial In others. Hut while uncertainty ls prolonged no decided revival can take place, and ??very one is disposed to avoid new engagements or undertaking;-". "Yes," continued Mr. Gould, "we have been d-scu-sslng the prv.Ject of establishing a steam? ship line from New-Orleans to England, proba? bly to Liverpool, but nothing definite will be done In this direction for some time. We are also thinking over a steamship line from New Orleans to New-York. It ls probable, however, that the Clyde Line may put on St aa ms rs to New-Orleans, and if that is done it will obviate the necessity of our action. New-Orleans ls one of the most Important of the termini of the -Texas and Pacific, and we are determined lo have an outlet by steamers for that road some day. "There are no improvements In connection With the Southwestern system that we are now discussing. Tim.s will not permit that, and our energies axe now being directed toward economiz? ing. The pay-roll alone of the Missouri Pa rifle system haa been reduced $150,000 to 1200.000 a ?month. In spite of reduction In wages and prices, however, there ls no Motion with lab-li? on our system. Kates, I am sorry to say, are not entirely satisfactory, and thara hav- been fresh cuts to San Antonio. Transcontinental rates are also much disturbed. The difficulty ls not one that could not easily bs r-.-fii'iv.-l ll traffic should Increase; Indeed I bsllava that even now the trouble could ba ended if the r .ads would only get together. There is a decrease In the anti-railroad sentiment in Texas, I am glad to say. The solution of the railroad prob? lem ls really to bc found In tha establishment of pooling. The Interstate Commene lass cer? tainly should bi* amended. Fully one-half of the existing depression in transportation interests ls due, In my opinion, to the hostile spirit shown to corporations, and the unjust operation of the Interstate Commerce law. The law does rot protect the shippers and lt bears hard against the railroads. Unless there are changes receivership will follow receivership, and In the and the stronger lines will absorb the weaker and all competition will be crushed out. The roads are compelled to husband their resourws and there will be no Improvement so long as the law remains In existence in Hs present form. Congress should amend the law so as to permit pooling under some proper form of Government supervision. That would give a most powerful Impulse toward Improvement, rates would be come stable and every one would be benefited. Fully half of the existing depression." repeated Mr. Gould, with emphasis, "grows out of the un? just treatment of the railroads by legislation." Mr. Gould added: "I look for dull times for some time to come. If our crops prove good and there ls a substantial demand from Europe ' thara will ba a revival late In tha fall.
