' ■ — He Shows ^That the Road Has In creased I to Earnings While Its Chief Competitor Shows a Large Decrease—^The Great C., L. & W. Excursion to Cleveland To-Dajr. The Pennsylvania Seashore Busi ness. Receiver J. K. Cowan, of the Balti more and Ohio railroad, has made a statement bearing upon the recent de cision by Judges Goff and Morris, of the United States District Court, from which the following extracts of general interest are taken: — "The duty of the receivers was a plain one. It was a duty that they owed to every interest in the prop erty and was to be exercised as a function owed the public. What was to be done had to be done quickly, and this involved the expenditure of a seemingly large sum of money in a very short time. The results are now beginning to appear. For the fiscal year which ended June 30, 1897, the earnings of the Baltimore and Ohio were $25,557,000. Compared with the previous year this is an increase of $2,807,000, and this in a year when the prevailing business depression and the competition for tonnage made rates low. “While the Baltimore and Ohio in-, creased its earnings more than two millions its chief competitor showed a decrease of more than five millions of dollars. The reason of this is because the Baltimore and Ohio had been put ra shape to care for business that nat urally belonged to it. and if it had been in this atace in 1S95 it, too. would have shared in the heavy traffic movement which made that year’s earnings of the Pennsylvania railroad so large. Pre dictions as to the future are proble matical, but this year promises to be a fairly prosperous one. with a revival of business, and even larger increase of the earnings of the Baltimore and Ohio must result. "In carrying ont the policy of keep ing the wheels going ’round we have added considerable new equipment, but despite this have been paying a large sum monthly for foreign mileage. Five thousand new freight cars have been put in service and 220 freight engines, some of which h3ve not turned a wheel for months were sent through the shops and put to work. In round num bers $150,000 was spent in putting down passing sidings along the road to facil itate the movement of trams, and in yard sidings to quicken the deliveries. Terminals were looked after and large sums from the terminal reserve fund, which were in bank drawing 2U per cent interest, although costing the company 4^ per cent, were spent at Pittsburg and Cumberland. Grades were improved so that instead of haul ing thirty cars to a freight train forty and forty-five could be handled. “At Locust Point $42,000 was spent in a new pier, which will pay for It self inside cf a year in the saving of delay in loading and unloading of for eign steamships. It also enabled the introduction of economies that will make an annual saving. Now instead of four tracks to enter the Locust Point yards, which owing to their arrange ments only two were cf practical value, we now have twenty-two. There are now four great yards there, and cars singly and in trains can be handled with maximum rapidity. Of the in creased expenditures for the year $600,000 went for equipment and $1. 200,000 went Into the track. More than 80 per cent of the expenditures for track improvements was paid for ma terials. Notwithstanding this vast In crease in expenditures, twice as much as was spent the preceding year, the cost of labor increased only 3 per cent over the average of the last seven years. The increased expenditure in conducting transportation was $525, 000. The increased number of tons car ried one mile was 23 per cent, making the additional cost 5a* per cent for hauling this increased business.’’ In conversation with a prominent passenger agent of the Pennsylvania lines regarding the sea shore business, which is annually increasing in magni tude. he remarked that the public gen erally was not aware of their superior facilities and increased train service for handling the public to the sea shore, and particularly to Atlantic City. Last year at an expense of over a million dollars the Pennsylvania com pany completed the great Delaware bridge (where Washington crossed) and it was made use of at once by the rushing multitude destined for Amer ica's greatest watering resort. "What are the prospects this sea son was asked. “So far this season the travel Is way ahead of all former excursions. At the Wheeling office the sales for the first excursion were unprecedented. It took two full sleepers and one coach to take care of the people, and from present indications three large sleep ers will be full up leaving on the sec ond excursion, on July 29:h. “Do sleepers run through daily'’" “The Pennsylvania lines run sleep ers daily through to AtTantic City, leav jf Pittsburg on 4:30 p. m. train, ar riving at Atlantic City at 6:30 a. m. On special excursion dates sleepers are run from Wheeling and points west of Pittsburg directly through to Atlantic City via Delaware river bridge, thus avoiding delay and great inconvenience of transfer through Philadelphia, and arriving at Atlantic City the following morning. On our new schedule, ex cursionists can leave Philadelphia at S:30 a. m.. arriving in Wheeling at 9:15 p. m.. giving an opportunity to view the scenery of the Allegheny Mountains. Horse Shoe Curve.

J A MODEL ESTABLISHMENT. The Furniture and Carpet Hoase of L. Bertschy an Example of Modern Busi ness Methods. One of the model retail business houses of the city Is undoubtedly the furniture and carpet establishment of L. Bertschy, located at No. 1117 Main street, running entirely through the I block to No. 1120 Water street. Mr. Bertschy has recently removed to this j prominently situated and large busi ness house, and after It had undergone a complete transformation and refit ting, to adapt it to his needs and to | meet his experienced ideas of what a j thoroughly up-to-date retail establish ment should be, it was filled with | the most complete and one of the largest and best selected stocks of furniture and carpets ever offered for sale in this city. The entire store and stock has been arranged in the best 1 manner for the display of goods in ; Mr. Bertschy’s line and for the ac | commodation and convenience of bis patrons, and it is a comprehensive ex hibition of all that is best and most desirable in his line of trade. Even' j one is cordially invited to call and ex amine the splendid display of house i furnishings and carpets, and the pro prietor and his assistants will be glad I at all times to afford every facility to j all, whether intended purchasers or J not. To present in detail the various sorts and lines of goods handled by ; this splendidly equipped house would j be to devote at least a column of space J to the work, and e>en then it is doubt i ful if the reader would have a proper ! ! idea of the magnificent stock awaiting j I his regular patrons and the general ! public, yet the Register cannot refrain I from affording some insight into the 1 general features of the various de i partments of the store. He makes a specialty of the highest j grade chamber suits in genuine Mahog any, Imitation Mahogany, Curley j Birch. Walnut. Quarter-Sawed Polish i ed Oak. and all the various cheaper woods used for the manufacture of : ui LiiLUi c. | For the furnishing of the parlor his I stock embraces Silk Brocatelles, Silk Tapestry, Plushes and Hair Cloth cov j erings, upholstered on artistic frames, , as well as a full line of Turkish Suites, complete and odd pieces. For the dining room he continues to handle the renowned Victor extension tables, so constructed that the filling in pieces adjust themselves when the ! table is opened or closed, and is not ! complicated, a child being able to ; operate it. The table ranges in qual I ity from the highest grade, polished, to the medium grades, and can be niat'di ! eu with a full line of Sideboards and Combination China Closet and Side board, together with dining room I chairs, upholstered with leather and : cobler leather seats, cane and polished j wood seats. In his carpet department can be found a large stock, consisting of Wil tons, Axminsters, Velvets, Body Brus sels, Tapestry and Ingrains (not sam ples, but full rolls), with all the latest I colorings and designs, thereby avoiding ! the necessity of waiting until goods are ordered, all being sold at the low i est possible prices. His capacity for making and laying carpets is not ex i celled, even in the larger cities. Per sons can select a carpet in the fore noon and have it put down the same day. He carries a large stock of In laid (cqlor through to the back), Lin i oleums, Printed Linoleums and Oil Cloths. At this place Window Shades are made to fit windows, and all color ings in stock are of the best quality. To verify all that has been said, a visit is only necessary to convince the purchaser that the house of I* Bert schy is a model one in all respects. -o THE CLEVER JAPS Will riay a Week’* Return Engagement Opening To-Morrow. The O Kabe Japanese Troup, which drew good crowds at the Wheeling Park Casi no on their first appearance here in May will play a return engagement of a week, beginning to-morrow. Nightly perform ances will be given with matinees Wednes day and Saturday. This company is per haps the cleverest that has ever left Ja pan. The feats in acrobatics and wire walking are really marvelous, and the per formance is interesting from start to fin ish. During the engagement special mo tors will be run and popular prices will prevail. An added attraction of the en gagement will be the pictures by the pro jectoscope, which will be shown on the lawn after the Jap performance. In the views fine scenes from country and city will be shown. The projectoscope comes well recommended and will prove quite an attraction. -o ELM FISHING CLUB. The Elm Fishing Club, encamped on Buffalo creek, near Bethany, W. Va., have made several fine catches of fish ar.d game, and have captured 29 ground hogs in ten days; also 41 squirrels, and are well supplied with fish and turtles. John Arthur and Wm.
