Such securities are generally valuable
in proportion to the length of time they
have to run. Tho longest six per cent,
gold interest bonds of the U. S. (the '81's)
will be due in 1*2 years, and they arc worth
112. If they had 30 years to run, they
would stund at not less than 125. A per

Union Pacific should approach this rate.
