FIGURES TO BUCK HIS STATEMENI
Claims That Roads In Far West Have
Not Felt Panic at All and That the
Eastern Lines Arc Recovering Rap
' idly.
(By Associated Press)
Washington, d. c. March 23.?
Every Indication pointB to an In?
provemont generally In tho railroad
and industrial situation of Hie coun?
try nccordlng to reports made by the
groat railway systeifls of America to
the interstate commerce commission.
These reports arc to the effect that,
while the railroads suffered to aome
?extent by what has come to be re?
ferred to ns the "October panic," the
loa? was by no menus so acrlous an
generally has l?cn supposed.
It appears from the reports that the
offoct was felt particularly by tho
Kantern linos anil by the lines in Hie
Bouth-cnHtcrn pari of the country, a
few of which were embarrassed not
only by a fulling off or revenues, but
by their inability to obtain ready cash
with which to carry on Improvements
which they had begun while the Wes?
tern linos and the trans-continental
roads have not suffered materially
from the financial depression. The
figures available to the Inlerstnto
commerce commission Indicate also
that the general condition In tho
country Is improving materially, with
n prospect thai it soon will be normal
or better.
Franklin K. Ijuie, Pacific Coast
member of tho Interstate commerce
commission has made a careful analy?
sis or the figures submitted by the
railroads themst Ivor to tho commis?
sion, Mr. Ijino was asked what loss
tho railroads or America bad sustain?
ed from the "October panic." He re?
plied that the rnllromi situation the
country over Is not Imminently a se?
rious one at the present time.
-.- "Thoro are no figures' accessible by
Which a definite nnswi r to your much
(ton can bo given," continued Com?
missioner Lane, "From the figures
hvnllnWo to the commissioner, how?
ever, It does not appear that. Inking
? tho country as a whole, the revenues
of the railroads have fallen off to tho
oxtont that generally Is believed. The
Intoretalo commerce commission now
calls upon the curriers suhjuct lo tho
act to regulato commerce for monthly
report.! of their revenues and operat?
ing expenses. Such reports began
With the month of duly last, and I
?havo the flgurcH compiled by Prof.
Henry C. Adams, our statistician, as
to a number of Kystoms which may
be taken as roprosenlntlve of the rail?
road BystOmn of life entire country.
ThoBO systems are:
"New York. New Haven & Hart?
ford.
"Now York Central.
."Baltimore ft Ohio.
"Pennsylvnnln, east and west of
Plttsburg.
"Louisville. & Nashville.
"Rock Island.
"Aichlson. Topekn & Santa Fo.
"(Chicago, Milwaukee ft St. Paul.
"Northwestern.
-: "Southern Pacific.
"Great Northern.
"Northorn Pad lie.
"During tho three months July, An
gust- nnd September tho total operat?
ing revenues of these roads amounted
to $399,000,000; for the panic months
of October, November and Dccomhoi
tho total revenue wub $37G,0U0.000.
The freight revenues of tho systems
named were, for the first quarter,
.$264.000,000. and for the second quar?
ter, $259,000,000. The freight reve?
nues for ''November were larger than
thoso for July or Si ptombor.
They Arc Not Panic Figures.
"These systems during tho last six
months of 1907 received from passen?
ger and freight revenues a grand to?
tal of $775.000.000, which Is $54,000.
000 more than they received for the
same period in tho preceding year
1906; and their not Income from op?
eration in 1907 was $14,000,000 more
than In 1906. Those figures certainly
<lo noi indicate that, either owing to
legislation or the panic.'the railroads
of tho country as a whole havo been
put in financial jeopardy. It is true
that during 1907 there was a great in?
crease in oporating expenses owing to
general Increases in wages: hut. In
allowing for such Increase, the larger
Volume of traffic and 'greater revenue
derived therefrom yielded a larger net.
return to the railroads.
"A study of these figures shows
that tho panic, so far as it affected
(he railroads, extended but slightly
beyond Chicago townrds the West, tf
wo take tho trans-continental roads
reaching to the Pacific Coast, we find
that every one of thorn increased its
- trosB operating revenues' during the
last half of the year 1907. Rcglnning
with tho Great Northern, which is
near tho Canadian border, and coming
i down tho Pacific Coast to the Mexi?
can border, thus including the North?
ern Pacific, the Southern Pacific and
the. Santa Fe, system*, each one In?
creased its total operating revenues
in the last half of 1007 over those
revenues for tho last hair of WOO.
? \i ? whlio the net Income was in some
cases increased and In others slight
i,: ly decreased; the net income from
operation In each of those lines- he

pacific $18,000.000, Great Northern
;!.000,000 and Southern Pacific $41.

fro/gut revenues alone, Uho Santa Fo
s'-'i'.eni, for instance, shows larger
Height revenue* In December tlmn
In July or Soptember; and the South?
ern FuclAc's December freight reve?
nues were but n few thousand dollars
less In that month than In any other
month excepting October and Novem?
ber. We find, therefore, no alarming
condition presented us to the tran..
contlnontal lines.

"Coming Ulla side of the Rocky
Mountains we aee thut the Hock Is?
land, notwithstanding the state legla
latlon to which It has been subjected,
Increased Its revenues during lite last;
halt of 1007 over those of huh; by over
$3,000,000. The whole of Its net In?
come from operation. $17,000,000 as
over n million dollars less than for
the corresponding six months of toot;.
The Chicago, Milwaukee *i St. Paul
shows a decrease of approximately
$200,000 In operating revenues, and
the Northwestern system an Increase
of about the snme amount; although
the Milwaukee's net Income was larg
er In 1007 than in 1000.
"Moving still further eastward into
Trunk Line territory between Chicago
and the Atlantic seaboard, we discov?
er that the New York Central, Hie
Baltimore & Ohio, and the Pennsyl?
vania Lines, both east and West of
PlttSburg, Increased their total rove,
nues for the freight and passenger
traOle in the July - December period of,
1007 over that of 1001!; and as to both
Hi.' New York Central and tho Penn?
sylvania Lines Hie tut Income from
operation was greater In 1007 than for
the corresponding period of Hie year
previous. Tho returns from thoso
roads Indicate, however, thai tho pan?
ic hail Its center In their territory, as
there Is a more notable falling off In
1 revenues from traffic In Oils croup
during tho panic months than on any
othor excepting the Southern roads.
"The single New Rnglnnd road Ink
on as an Illustration, the New York.
New Haven & Hartford, '.-.hows nn In?
crease of over n million dollars In
Ki-oss revenues and a decrease of
about $260,000 in the net.
"The two Sentkern roads, the Lou?
isville & Nashville and the Southern,
Increased their total revenues from
traffic, their iota) operating expenses,
and also lheir not Income from oper?
ation, over tho corresponding half
year of 1806.
"Therefore, viewing the country as
a whole, from West to Hast and from
North to South, the outlook for tho
railroads Of |h6 United States, as
shown by Iholr own figure*:, is not no
disquieting na has boon supposed; und
these figures, it inurfi Da romoniberod.

panic began In New York, during a
greater portion of which time banks
would not make loans or dlrcotinls

country would not receive clucks iii

"Although the return.i to the com?

thoy will show that conditions have

this Is also to be borne In mind, thnt
the mouth of January is gonornlly the
slackest inon^i during the year, and
February la nlso poor. There In no
doubl. Individual Instances in which
tho revenues Of roads have sOrlOUSly
declined during the past three months
over corresponding periods for sever?
al years past; but there are also In?

within the past three weeks there
has been n strong upward tendency
In freight revenue ;. A greater vol?
ume of I raffle Is moving today than

months. Tho figures <u" the Ameri?

there Is iess surplus of cars at this

"Field" Opposed jo Secretary Says
Nomination Is Not Cinciieu.
HITCHCOCK V? ARE IOO ROSY
His Claim That Taft Will be Nomi?
nated on First Ballot is Not Borne
Out by the Facts in the Case, So
Say the Reactlonalres.
WASHINGTON, I). C. March 23.?
What Is known as the "field opposed
to tho nomination of Secretary Taft"
gave out today an annonynious state?
ment In nnswor to tho figures Issued
for Mr. Taft, by Frank 11. Hitchcock.
It is supposed if have been pre?
pared by friends of Vice-President
Fali hanks, Speaker Cannon, Senator
Fornkor and Senator Knox, and to
havo bcon approved by Senntor Crane,
of Massachusetts, hut no authority for
iho computation could ho learhcd. The
statement follows:
"Conceding: lo Secretary Toft every
delegate of which ho has oven the
most remote prospect, there cannot he
mustered tor Mr. Taft in oxcess of 350
of the ISH votes necessary lo a nom?
inal Ion.
" The campaign methods employed,
by the friends of Secretary Taft are
so solidifying the opposition and so
wldoly disseminating the belief that
Mr. Taft as a candidate would bo lack ?
lug in tho elements essontlal to a har?
monious condition In tho parly ami
the polling of all the available party
strength that this Qguro would, under
the most favorable conditions, repre?
sent tho high water mark of the Tnfl
strength.
"The figures of the opposition show
that the largest number of voles it is
possible to claim as certain for Sec?
retary Tnfl nt Ibis time is 126, more
than one-fourth of this number being
from Secretary Tnft's own state.
"Tho opposition credits Secretary
Tuft With the following instructed
delegates! Iowa, IS; Kansas, it',; Ok?
lahoma. S; Missouri, 22; Ohio, 24; the
Philippines, ?; Virginia. 4; Now Mexi ?
co. 'J; total, 120, The delegates claim?
ed for Fairbanks, Fornkor, Cannon
nnd Hughes numlttr DO, with only one
favorite son stale heard from In large
part? Indiana--nnd that not complete
by four votes.
"Tho plans of tho Taft forces In?
cluded the early assembling of con?
ventions in states whore Taft Instruc?
tions were a certainty. The Tuft
forces from now on must light for
much of what they gel. and It Is pre?
dicted that the next thirty day.,- will
llnd the hand wagon unable to main
tain its momontum, and, therefore, In
serious danger of being stalled.
"Of the conventions lo bo held dur?
ing tho next thirty days the Taft
managers have reason to expect fav?
orable results In Arkansas, Rhode Is?
land. Minnesota, Soul It Dakota and
Virginia. From these states a total
of 11 fty votes may, under favorable
circumstances, ho rallied for the Tnfl
candidacy, bringing the Tatl total up
to approximately 175 votes. During
tho same period Indiana will add four
delegates at large, and tho state's in?
dorsement to tho Fairbanks total. The
big vole of New York anil Illinois will
be joined lo the Hold's total.
"Other stales likely to v< sist Taft
Instruct ions during this period are
Delaware Massachusetts, Tennessee
aud 'Nevada. One month hence, it Is
confidently claimed, the field will have
n lead of more than one hundred votes
ovor the Tnfl forces, and In the states
and territories- from which delegates
are to bo selected during the four
weeks which will intervene before the
close of tho period for the election of
delegates on May 10, the opposition
forces will Insist that with the mo?
mentum of this majority and the fa?
vorable conditions prevailing In the
territory from which delegates ate to
bo circled. Hie Taft candidacy will
suffer a serious und probably fatal
check."
How It Works.
Once thorn was a struggling young
author who was bleat with many
friends, all of whom told him that he
was tho coming great writer of the
country.
So one day a bright thought struck
him. He said:
"1 will publish my lx>ok, and all my
friends who admire It so much will
buy my book and I will bo rich."
So he printed bis book.
And all ?f his friends waited for him
to send them autographed coploa of

And so his hooks were sold as Junk.
And ever after he didn't have any
