Whether subsidies am given to any other companies or not, the Govern ment will comply with all its contracts with th* Union Pacific Ruilroad Company. Nearly the whole amount of bond® to which the Com^iivy will be entitled have already been delivered. FIRST MORTGAGE BONDS AT PAR. By its charter, the Company is permit 1 to issue its owu First Mortgage Bond* to the same amount as the Governweat Bonds, and no more. These Bonds are a First Mortgage upon the entire road and all its equipments. They have thirty years to run, at sis per cent, and both ted PRINCIPAL AND INTEREST ARS PAYABLE IN GOLD. Such securities arc generally valuabl» in proportion to the length of time they have to run. The longest six per cent, gold interest bonds of tlio U. S. (tho '81'») will be due in 12 years, 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 1'acific should approach this rate. The demand for European investment Is already oonsideruhlc, and on the comple tion of the work will doubtless carry the prioe to a large premium. SECURITY OF TIIE RONDS. It needs no argument to show that » First Mortgage of $2(1,500 per mile upon what for a long time must bo the only railroad connecting the Atlantic and Pa cific States is perfectly secure, tire amount of the mortgage will be about $30,000,000, and the interest $1,800,000 per annum iu gold.
