'ALBUQUERQUE EVENING CITIZEN.
TC.Ti TWO. HIHISDAV, SFJTKMnEH 20. 10T. 1 RAILROAD DEPARTWTj FISH IS MAKING CHARGES IN WRITING Asserts That Illinois Central Accounts Were Padded to Make Showing. New York, Hept. 26. Stuyvesant fish, former president of the Illinois Central railroad, made public today a circular addressed to the stock holders of the Illinois Central rail road company, In which he asks for ' proxies to be used at the annual stockholders' meeting to be held In Chicago on Wednesday, October 16. At this meeting four directors are to be chosen, three of them to suc ceed John Jacvrb Astor, stuyvesant Fish and E. H. Harriman and one to till a vacancy for a term of one year. Coming down to recent his tory. Mr. iFlsh says: "The methods pursued by those of your board of directors who act in the Interest of the Union Pacific have been so high-handed as to be come the subject of wide-spread comment. At a recent meeting of the board I offered a resolution of Inquiry into subject-matters which should properly be disclosed to every Shareholder, including the evident padding of the accounts. Such In quiry was unnecessary." Smv Accounts JurcUmI. It appears from the annual report of the Illinois Central company for the year ending June 30, 1907, that there was an extraordinary increase In the net receipts of the corporation during the last four months, which increase is wholly inexplicable and obviously Inconsistent with the facts upon any proper accounting and clearly made for the purpose of pro-1 during a favorable but fictitious ehowing. The first third of the year Mhowed an increase In net receipts of 1665,070. Then came the change In the presidency, and in the next third of the year the net receipts decreased by $572,586. Finally, In the last four months, they were sud denly Increased by II. 263, 889, of which Increase $604,751 is reported as made in the single month of June. This palpable misstatement, which is further emphasised by the fact that although neltiher the mileage nor the operating conditions had changed in the slightest degree, the succeeding month of July showed a falling oft of $35,098 in net revenue, as against the reported gain of $604,711 in June. Yet, my resolution of Inquiry was referred for report to the pres ident, the very officer who had brought the accounting directly un der his own control and. of course, Its whole purpose was defeated. The Appeal For Proxies. "Up to this time I have not asked for a single proxy, nor would I do bo now were It not for the extraor dinary efforts the present manage ment are putting forth, with fhe evi dent intention of electing E. H. Har riman and such persons as he may elect, backed by the holdings of the Union Pacific company, which con stitute a practical balance of power. It is for you to determine whether their (holdings of about 30 per cent of the stock Is to name the directors of the Illinois Central Railroad com pany without the consent and to the deterlment of the remaining 70 per cent. Do you wish your property to be managed, as heretofere. In the Interest of the Whole body of stock holders, or to be dominated by the union pacific, wnlch. if thus put in control for four years, will 1n that time cause such permanent traffic contracts and engagements to be made as will deprive the Illinois Central of the proper enlargement of its advantages and prevent it secur ing its legitimate revenue for all time to come? "The repeated requests of large numbers of stockholders that I not only represent their holdings at the meeting, but also address the stock holders at large In advance thereof. Is a sufficient excuse for this letter as well as for the lnclosure herewith of a form of proxy running to two or my colleagues In the board Charles M. iieach and James Dew Cutting and myself. Very respect fully. ".STUVEHANT FISH." "PAY AS VOl-'lA'TKir HTKKl-rr CA1CS IXTIlOIrCKI. Chicago. 111., fept. 26. "Pay-as-you-enter" street cars will be in op eration on the Cottage Grove and In diana avenue lines of the Chicago City Railway company within six weeks. Three hundred of this type of car ihave been ordered, and If 'hey prove successful the 605 double track trams already operated by the company will be so altered aa to put tnem in tne same class. According to the officials, 30 per cent of local street railway accidents are due to people slipping while get ting on or leaving a car. Hy the new plan, used in -Montreal, this per centage will be cut down, It Is be Heved, by one-half. The rear plat form of the car Is divided into two parts by a brass railing. There arc two duors in the cur, which this railing, by a graceful curve, also separates. One door, that w hich opens into the passageway, used by people entering the car. Is open at all times, but the exit door U used only when patrons dfcslre to depart. The con ductor stands in a little niche form ed by the railing and collects the fares as persons step Into tho vesti fcule. If it is necessary, however, he can let a person puss and go In and get the fare later. The conductor also is supposed to keep passengers off the car when he finds that seats and comfortable standing room are tuken. He does this by usurping fhe pace on the platform used as the entrance to the passageway. There also Is a sliding or disappearing step in front of the oar. which can be let down If one wishes to leave the car from that end. SHOPS AT tHIimZOZO MiAKLY COMI'MCTKn. A railroad carpenter, w!u ha re turned to this city from Carrixoro, where he was employed for some time on the construction work of the new roundhouse and shops of the HI Paso & Southwestern nt that place, reports thnt the buildings are now done and that the machinery Is all on the ground, hut not nil set. The roundhouse has 14 stalls, Is of brick and Is well and conveniently built. The shop building is 180 by 70 feet In dimensions. It la also a brick structure and well arranged. There Is alo a brick store room and oil house, 60 by 30 feet. The pipe line, through which wat er is to be brought to the new shops from the Ronita river, twenty-five miles away, Is now In course of con struction and most all of the neces sary pipe is on the ground, so that it is believed this work can Ibe push ed to completion without interrupt -Ion. WANT LAY OVKTt AT Kli PASO KXD OF MNF.. The engineers and firemen of the Rio Orande division of the Santa Fe have petitioned the officials of the division for a change 1n the layover arrangement at present in use so that the m-n can have their longest time In El Paso and can move their families there. The present arrange ment only allows an eight-hour lay over there and the men are forced to practically double back to San 'Marcial. On the return trip from Albuquer que to El Paso the entire trip has to be made without a stop and the men claim that eight hours Is not enough at that end in which to rest up for the return. A petition has been signed (by all of the passenger englnemen and by a number of old line freight engineers, who will fall heir to the passengers runs In a few years, asking that the privilege he transferred from Albuquerque to El Paso.
