ABOVE THIRD, WILMINGTON, DELAWARE. Feb. 20 , 1009—y. 1,000 MILES OF THE UNION PACIFIC J RAILROAD ARE NOW COMPLETED. A S 500 miles of the western portion of the line, beginning at Sacramento, are also done, but 267 Miles Remain To be finished, to open the Grand Through Line to the Pacific. This Opening will certainly take place early this season. b Besides a donation from the Government of 12,000 acres of land per mile, the Company is entitled to a subsidy in U. S. Bonds completed and accepted, at the average rate of about $26,500 per mile, according to the difficul ties encountered, for which the Government takes a second lien as security. Whether subsidies arc given to any other companies or not, the Govern ment will comply with all its contracts with the Union Pacific Railroad Company. Nearly the whole amount of bonds to which the Company will be entitled have already been delivered. its line as j ! FIRST MORTGAGE RONDS * AT PAR. By its charter, tlio Company is permit ted to issue its owu First Mortgage Bonds to the same amount as tie >. .. rnment ids, an d First Mortgage upon the entire road and all its equipments. They have thirty years to ruu, at six per cent, and both V. PRINCIPAL AND INTEREST ARE PAYABLE IN GOLD. Such securities arc generally valuable in proportion to the length of time they have to run. The longest six per cent, gold interest bonds of the U. S. (the '81's) will be due in 12 yenrs, and they arc worth 112. If they had 30 years to run, they would stand at not less than 125. A per fectly safe First Mortgage Bond like the Union Pacific should approach this rate. Tho demand for European- investment is already considerable, and on the comple tion of the work will doubtless carry the priee to a large premium. SECURITY OF THE BONDS. It needs no argument to show that a First Mortgage ot $20,500 per mile upon what for a long time must be the only railroad connecting the Atlantic and Pa cific States is perfectly secure. The en tire amount of the mortgage wilt be about $30,000,000, and the interest $1,800,000 per annum in gold. The present currency cost of this interest is less than $2,500, 000 per annum, while tho gross earnings for the year 1808, from way business only, on an average of less than 700 miles of road in operation, were more than FIVE MILLIONS DOLLARS, The details of which are as follows : From Passengers..., " Freight. " Express. " Mails. " Miscellaneous " Government troops...104,077.77 " " freight. ..449,440.33 " Contrrctors' men.201,170.09 " " material.968,430.32 .$1,024,005.97 .2,040,233.19 .51,423.08 . 136,235.59 .91,626.27 Total. This large amount is only an indication of the immense traffic that must go over the through line in a few months, when the great tide of Pacifie coast travel and trade will begin. It is estimated that this business must make the earnings of the road .$5,066,651.61 FROM FIFTEEN TO TWENTY Millions a Year. As the supply of these Ronds will soon eease, parties who desire to invest in them will find it to their interest to do so at onoe. The price at present is par and ac c.ued interest from Jan. 1, in currency. A new Pamphlet and Map was issued October, 1st, containing a report of the progress of tho work to that date, and a more complete statement in relation to the value of the bonds than can be given in an advertisement, which will be sent free on application.
