In the current issue of the Commer cial West, there is the following com ment upon the rapid rise in Soo stock, by H. V. Jones, the editor: The property has always been hand led conservatively. It has "grown up with the country." When ex-Senator Washburn planned the 'Minneapolis & Pacific road back in the SO's he had pretty barren country to deal with west, of the Minnesota line. A years have passed and today the "SJO'' line is well settled to the international boundary line at Portal. There are no waste places on the road. Every foot of the territory is contributing traffic The road has reached the second stage in its growth—the rebuilding period, It is at this point that stockholders will •be especially interested. The Soo is laid with 00-pound rail between Minneapolis and Valley City North Dakota, that was put down when the road was built. Next spring the laying of this stretch with 80-pound rail will begin. Between Minneapolis and Sault Ste. Marie the relaying with 80-pound rail has been completed ex cept for 18 miles, and the work has been paid for oiit of earnings. Gen eral Manager Pennington superin tended the building of the Soo road He knows every foot of the roadbed and it was this thorough knowledge of the property that advanced him up through the line of officials to the gen esral manager's office. His plan of de yelopment of the property has been seconded by those in authority and it is now,'Possible to measure the results. Mr. Pennington believes in a conserva tive policy. He believes that a rail road must grow into earning capacity rather than attempt to jump into a pos ition Jf stability. Hence he believes first in a ^property that can do its work economically, then*,he believes in divi ^jplends forerermore. •f^iThe Soo road h$8 never had an acci dent from rail spreading. It lays $,168 ties to the mile as against 2,640, the number in use on moet railroads The theory is that/with the larger num wsmimm 5: ber cf ties a rail cannot "spread," and the safety from wrecks is a quick offset to the additional expense-for the ties, tp say nothing of the feeling of safety to trains. On all curves oak ties are used and a spike holds with an awful grip when planted in hard oak. So much for the roadbed foundation that underlies this'property. Next spring the woi'k of ballasting the entire line west of Minneapolis with gravel will begin, together with the laying of S0 pcund rail, and this work will be paid for out of earnings, so that when com pleted the debt of the property will not have been increased. In the last four years a great amount of work has been done and paid for out of earnings, As an instance. IP. miles of bridges have bellt put in iron and only three more miles remain in wood. The com pletion of this work will be made next year. In the last four years $1,700,MO has been spent for equipment and paid for. These facts suggest the great work that has been done in laying a broad foundation for the working out of the Soo property. It is showing that should give pleasure to every stockholder, for it means a sure and continuous dividend payer within three years, the time estimated for comple tion cf the full work of rebuilding the road. Thes 00-pound rails have been sold for $28' and $30 a ton after being in use fourteen years. Allowing for the di|ference in weight, tliis sale buys the new S(Hpound rails. Six locomotives will be added soon to the rolling stock, besdes new passenger equipment and 300 freight' cars. These details. are mentioned for the purpose of inform ing "Soo" stockholders of the policy that General Manager Pennington is enforcing, and which will bring a divi dend result in three years at the far thest that will be satisfactory. In any good business year the road makes 7 per cent on the preferred stock and S to 10 per cent on the common stock. With the betterments completed, want to make the prediction that the price •of Soo common stock -will not be un der 150. It would be significant of a lack of appreciation did not the Tribune ex •press its gratitude and that of the cit izens of Bismarck for the kind words which come from all parts of the state for the capital city. The city's pros perity, its orderly government, its many improvements, its natural advan tages, all are kindly commented upon and the press of the state expresses good wishes for the future. For all of these good wishes, the people of Bis inarck are grateful and—if modesty be not outraged in the assertion—deserv ing. They have struggled long and earnestly, against many odds and have overcome difficulties and obstacles in numerable. The ultimate prosperity and growth of the city has been their guiding star, and they rejoice with the state that the time they have worked for and prayed for is at hand. TO MY FRIENDS. .1 It is with joy I tell you what Kodol did for me. I was troubled with my stomach for several months. Upon being advised to use Kodol, I did so, and words cannot tell the good it has done me. A neighbor had dyspepsia so that he had tried most everything. I told him to use Kodol. Words of gratitude have come to me from hjm because I recommended it.—Geo. W. Fry, Viola, Iowa. Health and strength, of mind and body, depend' on the stom aeh, and normal activity of the diges tive' organs. Kodol, the great recon structive tonic, cuires all stomach and bowel troubles, indigestion, dyspep sia. Kodol digests any good food you eat. Take a dose after meals. E. G, Patterson & Co.
