STUYYESANT FISH MARES STATEMENT THE PRESIDENT OF THE ILLINOIS CENTRAL POINTS OUT WHAT CONFRONTS HARRIMAN—INTER ESTING INFORMATION. From the New York Sun. Stuyvcaant Fish, president of the Illi nois Central, has submitted to his board of directors a long report giving detailed statistical information of the progress made by the system as a whole and by every department in the nineteen years since his first election to the presidency, in May, 1887. A statistical table Is also presented, showing the relative gains made by the Illinois Central and other large systems. Since the breach of the Mutual Life In surance company, which led to Mr. Fish’s resignation as a trustee because other trustees refused to indorse his advocacy of a thorough housecleaning there have been many reports that E. H. Harriman and others who objected to Mr. Fish’s action were bent on ousting him from the presidency of the Illinois Central. Whether or not Mr. Fish made the re port with the idea of fortifying his man agement against attack by the Harriman interests and inaugurating a campaign for re-election the figures contained in the report are available for that pur pose. In comparing the progress of the Illinois Central between 188*5 and 1905 with that of twelve other systems, Mr. Fish takes three eastern trunk lines, six lines run ning out of Chicago and three southern lines. He shows that the aggregate gross receipts of those roads increased 245 per cent, In the nineteen years, while the in crease on the IlliA,'is Centtral was 3t»4 per cent. The latter A d showed an increase of 227 per cent in dividends paid on com mon stock against a gain of 110 per cent for the others, and an increase of 728 per cent in units of service performed against an increase of 339 per cent for the others. The capital stock of the Illinois Central showed an increase of 227 per cent as com pared wltth an increase of 104 per cent for the others. In reference to this Mr. Fish says: "or every share of added capital the company has received In money at least Its par value. Each stockholder, In re spect to every new Issue, has precisely the same right and opportunity of subscribing and in no case has the company paid a dollar for having any of its stock under written. All of which proves that t'he shares have been held by the general pub lic for Investment, and that those owning them have had such an abiding faith in the enterprise as to have thus admitted of an increase in the money at t’he risk of the business, from $29,000,000 to $95,040, 000.” After presenting many tables showing the growth of the property under his man agement Mr. Fish concludes with this statement: “That which has been accomplished is primarily due to the consistent way in which the board of directors have, since 1890, followed the conservatively enter prising policy then so wisely adopted. You and your predecessors have inquired patiently into the various projects brought to your and their attention and in all liberal and whole hearted manner have, after due investigation and discussion, provided the means for raising all the mil lions of money needed to enable the com pany to meet the enormous and constant ly growing demands for more and better service. "It only remains for me to enter my thanks to you and to the stockholders 1 for the confidence which has through all these years been put in me and to once | more express the gratitude which we all owe to the able, experienced and upright staff of officers who have for ro long been associated with me in the management and to the like-minded men under them in every branch of service.” Not Purely Vegetable. From the Philadelphia Press. “Ye%“ BaId the thin man, munching his apple, “I’m a 6trict vegetarian.” “You mean you think you are,” replied the observant man. “What do you mean by that?” “I mean that I noticed a worm in that bit of apple you Just swallowed.” ANNOUNCEMENT For Sheriff.

Congressman Longworth and his wife were among the members of a house party—House of Representatives party, that is—at the baseball game the other afternooh, when the sergeant-at-arms was sent out to arrest the delinquents and bring them back to the House to vote. Twenty-two House members were gather ed up from the grandstand and bleachers, Mr. Longworth and his wife being brought In from the President’s box. On the way In from the ball park to the eapitol one party of half a score coming In Congressman Sibley's big auto was followed by a bicycle policeman, who found that they were unduly speeding. He undertook to arrest them but the assist ant sergeant-at-arms in charge of the party insisted that, as he already had the company under arrest, he couldn't submit to the bicycle cop’s authority. The con flict of jurisdictions was settled by arbi tration In favor of the sergeant-at-arms. It was a delightful spring afternoon and the House was droning along through its business, with John Sharp William* filibustering and forcing roll sells on everything possible, including the question of a quorum. The weather was fine, and the call of the ball game was strong upon the fans of the House. They heeded It and went, and then there was a cffll for a quorum, and the sergeant-at-arms waa Bent after delinquents. Among the more than a score of tru ants were Representatives Sherman of New York, chairman of the republican congressional campaign committee; Mc KInlay of California. McKinley of Illi nois, Sibley of Pennsylvania, Loud of Michigan, Cousins of iowa, Gaines .f>f West Virginia. Thomas of Ohio, Uun woll of New York, Longworth of Ohio. Burleigh of Maine, and Rodenburg of Illinois. The latter seems to have been the sole truant who escaped the truant officer, and was permitted t > see the game through. 4 Sergeant-atrArms Caeson sent one of his assistants with three carriages to the ball grounds. The young man with the authority and the sublimated patrol wagons hurried out to the grand stand, and took a rapid survey. In a box waa a party of about eight members, who had gone out In Mr. Sibley's big tour ing car. They were having a lovely time. It was the third Inning, ar.d neither side had scored. “The Sergeant-at-Arms has sent out for you gentlemen,” suggested the boy ish official as he entered the box where the party w’as discussing the batting streak that Cleveland was just de veloping. There was a chorus of protest. Go back to the house at such a crisis? It w$s In human to contemplate such a thing. Be sides, they didn't believe they had been sent f«r. They guessed It was a Joke. It was embarrassing for the young man. Obviously ho couldn’t very well ar.est the recalcitrant statesmen by for:.* lie ( appealed tc the lawmakers to script his assurance that he wouldn't be at all like!v tu joke about so serious a subioc'. His Job looked too good to him. Ho mad* good the argument. The party hold a brief council of war, and With such forced badinage as was possible under the pain ful circumstance» died out of the stand and out to the carriages. The officer rounded up stray members from other parts of the stand, and In the executive box found the bridegroom from the First Ohio, with Ills wife. They are both lover# of the game, and the humor of the situation was slow In dawn ing on them. But It wouldn't do to resist or argue with constituted authority. They gave parole to proceed at once to the capltot. They had come In Mrs. Ijongworth’s pretty runabout, and on the return trip they took with them Mr, Qalnes of West Virginia. Mr. Gaines is very tall, and In the limited space of a vehicle built for two —Just two—he couldn't very well stow himself in comfort with Mr. and Mrs. Longworth. The latter solved the prob lem. Tf Nick would just sit down in front, she would drive and Mr. Gaines could ait with her. Of course; that was just the iden. and so "Nick” located himself on the little low front seat and away •they went. Meanwhile the deputy sergeant at arms was busy with the big bunch. Mr. Sibley volunteered to take his party back in the auto, and this was permitted. They piled in and the chauffeur pro ceeded to make the route to the eapitol look like the Ormond Reach course with the race of the ^season on. The bicycle cop got his eye on the big machine and gave chase. His cyclometer indicated a cometlc speed that was sim ply making a laughing stock of the regu lations. He felt obliged to protest and earn his wages. So he held up the outfit and announced that the speed law was be ing violated. Here was a nice how dy'e do. Not to get back to tho house was to incur the wrath of the powers there, and to sub mit to arrest was both embarrassing and time-consuming. At last a bright idea struck a member of the party. “But you see,” he explained, "w’c can’t ; let you ariest us?” ! “Can’t tT)’" demanded the cop, hrlst | ling visibly. "No. we’re out of your jurisdiction." "Not If my cyclometer knows Its own mind," replied the bike man. "But we’re already under arrest.” That didn’t mollify the cop particu larly. He was from Missouri, and re quired to be shown. When he was told briefly the facts he grinned cheerfully and allowed that he didn’t care to meet up with the authoritw of the house of representatives over Its members. He let the party go In peace. Five minutes later the auto party was filing In at the door of the house. The roll call was awaiting them. They marched in, voted, turned on their heels and went straight hack to the machine. Before the authorities could get busy they were again speeding toward the ball park. Tho statesmen in carriages were not so fortunate. They arrived so late that it wasn’it worth w'hile to return to the park. llllllnnnillllllllllll»ll»iiim»i»*iiiiii»*ii»»*«iilll»liillil»»ilimiiiiiiiiiiii»iiiiiiiinniiiiiiiiiiiii»niw»iiiiiiiiii»i»«iiMiii»ii»iinMniMii»i»iiiiiiin SOME BIG GAME PRESERVES London Correspondence of the Chicago | Evening Post. IT does not severely tax the memory to go back to the day when Living stone and Stanley went Into the wilds of Africa as into an “undiscovered coun try.” But since that day the "dark” continent has become light. Settlement has advanced wth marvelous strides; the area of the unknown may be said to have passed. There could be no better Indication of how widespread has been the opening of this vast continent than that given In a letter from R. S. Hynde, president of the chamber of agriculture and com merce of the Nyasaland Protectorate, which appeared recently In the Specta tor. This letter Is a protest In behalf of the chamber against many of the game pre serves of Central Africa—preserves In tended to protect wild game from the in discriminate sportsman in order that the discriminating sportsman may not be de prived of his pleasure when civilization grows too tame for him and he takes a Jaunt into the heart of Africa. The whole Idea of these game sanctu aries rests upon the presumption that Africa Is a wild, uncivilized and useless | country, instead of which, as Mr. Hyde points out. It is being pierced by railways in every direction and is fast being turned Into a civilized, well-populated and pro ductive territory. These reserves—at least all but one of them—are said to be not only a nuisance, ■ but an actual menace to life and prop- | erty. The elephant mareh game reserve ] Is right at the gate of the Nyasaland j country, close to the customs ports of ; Chlromo. The railway skirts one side of It, and the road from Chiromo to Chlck wawa and Cholo run* more or less through it and alongside, The Shlrwa reserve, not such a strict sanctuary as the elephant marsh, lies near the administrative capital of the country, within a few miles of Zmnba township. It bounds one of the principal seats of the coffee and tobacco Industries and Is close to large cattle-raising In terests. The Central Angonlland reserve Is In a more out-of-the-way district, but Includes many native villages and Is In a district notably suitable for cattle raising. It Is native gossip that, owing to the Increas ing numbers of elephants the natives can not cultivate their gardens, and that when complaint Is made the natives are told to move, as the elephants certainly can not be driven a wav. Of course, the na tives are not allowed to shoot or capture t'he game. The only game reserve In Central Africa that seems to have been placed Judicious ly Is the I.ake Mweru, In northeastern Rhodesia. It Is said to be large enough for all the British territory usually mark ed on the maps as British Central Africa, and which Includes the Nyasaland Pro tectorate and northeastern Rhodesia. The question chiefly raised by Mils pro test—or it-might properly be termed this official condensing of many protests from I both natives and white settlers—Is I whether these game sanctuaries are to be maintained. Onre they are proved detri mental to the development of Britain’s South African possessions. Against the general policy of game preserves few ob jections will he raised. Any man who wishes to see beautiful wild tilings saved from the advance of civilisation and all who want big game ghootlng to be still an attainable sport are likely to wish well to the various local administrations ir. their efforts; but the essenoe of a game prtserve Is that it must not Interfere with the development of the land. The reserve established In the desert of today may be In the way of the eerttler of tomorrow. Then the forest must either be transformed or abolished. Game re serves near railways or close to roads or settlements are both a nuisance and a danger. Beasts of prey, like lions, are permitted to Incfoase unchecked, and they go forth from the sanctuary and take toll of the whole neighborhood, besides killing the milder animals of the preserve Itself. No reserve should be within miles of any human habitation or renter of In dustry. Take some of tpe larger animals commonly considered Innocuous by the I whites. The hippopotamus, for Instance, | Is a regular pest to the natives. The naitive. gardens, perforce, are near the rivers. ‘ They are mere titbits for the huge hippo, for after he makes one meal of a garden there Is little left hut the original soil. Tho same it> true of tho pro tected elephant. What he does not eat In one meal he tramples so that It Is use less. Jf these reserves are kept merely for tho use of sportsmen or to provide speci mens for museums it certainly seems folly to maintain them, and where one pre serve, well removed from Important cen ters, seems capable of meeting all the requirements it would seem to be a wise policy to do away with all the others. Of course the average Englishman, who loves to shoot, will raise his voice against the mere suggestion that the welfare and comfort of the white settlers and the natives of Central Africa should be al lowed to weigh against the preservation of big game for the sportsman's rifle; but this protest from Mr. Hynde may re ceive serious consideration from the local and home authorities, and for the rea son that it Involves the question of em pire building. It also brings home to the people of England, as no other thing could do, what Africa has become and what It Is des tined to become as a part of the empire. Reams of statistics and folios of maps could not so vividly bring this picture to the eye. The big continent is growing too small for wild anlmaJs and civilized men. The home and the farm and the railroad and the factory are attacking tho forests, peopling the deserts and placing the na tives on reserves. That English insolence and selfishness that has told the native -to move if the elephant troubles him will have to give a more courteous answer when the white settler complains. In all probability the next move will be that of the elephant. LOvV ROUND TRIP Excursion Rate* Via Atlantic Coast Line. To Chattanooga, Tenn.—Rate one first class fare plus 25 cents.
