In writing about the suicide of the
creator of Nick Carter, the United
Press calls-- that character “the in
famous Nick Carter.” It has been
a long time since we’ve read a Nick
Carter story but our recollection is
that he was about as model a man
as Fred Fearnot or Frank Merriwell
and as good a detective as Old King
The Eaffle—$2 a year.
When I said two years ago that if
elected to congress 1 would iavor
making Europe pay back to us the
ten billion we taxed our people to
raise and loan to them during the
war I was lauglied at for making
such a statement and it v\ as said to
me that 1 was trying to raise a false
issue and that there would never be
any question about Europe repaying
us. But soon after that these same
people found out that England had
sent agents to this country to quietly
nose around and scatter propaganda
among certain people and certain in
terests in favor of charging off this
debt and donating it boldly^ to these
European countries. The debt is still
unpaid. Not only is the principal
unpaid but unpaid interest has ac
cumulated until the debt is now about
fourteen hundred million dollars Jar*
ger than it was two years ago. And
we go on paying to those who hold
nrlii/iU urnra cq lrl tr\ 1QP
the money, we loaned thesese coun
tries about one and a half million dol
lars a day. According to figures re
cently published our loans in detail
are as follows:
Armenia $ 13,137,466.07
Austria 25,499,051.46
Belgium 420,263,997.55
Cuba 8,147,000.00
Czechoslovak 102,328,599.95

Finland 9,005,082.19
France 3,716,022,020.29
Britain 4,675,492,101.33
Greece 15,000,000.00

Russia 233,160,252.01
Serbia 57,210,787.01
TOTAL .$11,333,194,041.17
When these loans were first made
the total fell slightly under ten bil
lion dollars and you see from the
above that they now total more than
eleven billion. In addition to this
amount private loans amounting to
two and a half billions were made
to these countries through J. P. Mor
gan & Co. Of this amount more
than seventeen hundred million has
been paid back. In other words the
European countries have been pay
ing their debts to these bankers and
not to Uncle Sam. Now what do you
think about it?—-Ripley Sentinel.
Peoples Forum.
The bond election is over, and the
sooner the issue is forgotten, the
better for our town. No doubt a
great majority of people on both
sides were perfectly honest in their
opinion and were sincerely trying to
serve the best interests of the com
munity; but one side was right, and
the other was wrong. Time alone
will settle who was right and who
was wrong. An overwhelming ma
jority of the people indorsed the
judgment of our Citv Counsel, that
the town is now in no financial con
dition to assume additional burdens.
This decisive expression by the peo
ple should at least make everyone
feel that possibly the issue was wise
ly settled.
It is said that a few persons are
inclined to indulge in criticism of our
City officials for their out-spoken op
position to the bond issue. This is
wrong and utterly unreasonable. It
must be admitted that the positive1
stand taken by these officials was un
usual and not at all like the conduct |
of self-serving officeholders who gen- 1
erally try to straddle every proposi
tl An n n, I /iiiMtii. t. ^ 4.L ' J _ _ '
to every controversy. Such people
really stand for nothing except their
own personal interests. It is well
that the people should take notice
of a few things that our present ad
ministration has done. Scarcely
more than one year ago, the finan
cial condition of the city was in a
deplorable condition. Its credit was
at a discount; current bills were long
past due; creditors were threatening
suits; bonds had matured and there
was no money in the treasury with
which to pay them. To reconstruct
the financial condition of the city and
to put in force a constructive business
administration was no easy task.
Few men could be found willing to
undertake it. It was under these
conditions that Mr. Eliott and Mr.
Brown, at a personal sacrifice to
themselves, assumed the task. Mr.
Brown has served the people with- ■
out compensation; Mr. Elliott, who
has had to give considerable time to
the duties of his office, has only
drawn one-half the salary allowed
by law, which is hardly as much as
he had to pay for extra help in his
own business while he was serving the
city. It would be difficult to find a
parallel to the unselfish devotion of
these men in this sendee.
What else have they done for
your city? All out-standing bills
have been paid; bond obligations
have been taken care of as they ma
tured; the credit of the city is re-es
tablished; a reserve fund for emer
gencies is being started; an economi
cal business administration is being
inaugurated. These are a few of the
things to the credit of this adminis
tration. Now, do these men deserve
commendation or do they deserve
criticism ? No one but an unreas
onable or ungrateful person should
be expected to censure them for their
manly and out-spoken position on the
bond issue; Having dealt with the
city problems of reconstruction, and
being fully advised as to future re
quirements, they could better judge
what the city could afford to do than
any other person. Seeing their duty
as guardians of the public welfare
and the possible danger of incurring
further indebtedness at this time,
they had the manly courage to ad
vise the people what th£v should do,
and I, for one, am thankful they did.

rather than censure for their frank
and unselfish advice.
In a short time, the City of Ox
ford is to pass to the aldermanic
form of government—five aldermen,
a mayor and a marshal. It is time
we should bury the factional strife,
and look around for good material,
not only honest, but capable men. We
must have such material if a con
structive business administration is
desired. We should avoid all self
serving interests of individuals, and
steer clear of men who are seeking
easy jobs. The best material will
not seek these places. If you wish
the best and most unselfish service,
you must appeal to the patriotism
of men who will make a sacrifice for
the welfare of the City. Begin now
to consider this, and see if the pub
lic will not settle down on that type
of men who will carry out the poli
cies already inaugurated by the pres
ent counsel.

Illinois Central System Clears Up Point
•j ' * * I J
! About Railway Net Income
% f 9
{ I 9
i ; ,
The next railway operating income of the Class I railroads of the United States for 1921
was at the rate of 3.31 per cent upon their tentative valuation as esatblished by the Interstate
Commerce Commission for rate-making purpose s. Many have construed this to mean that the
railroads realized a net income of 3.31 per cent available for dividends, enlargements and im
provements. This is far from being true. There is a great difference between “net railway oper
ating income” and “nte income.” ; ‘ ^.j . ‘ j
. ■.. -■
Accounting methods are prescribed for the railroads by the Interstate Commerce Commis
sion, and they are uniform for all railroads. After all operating expenses and taxes have been pro
vided for, and uncollectible accounts have been de ducted, and after funds have been set aside for
the payment of rentals on equipment and joint fa cilities, the balance left over from revenues is
called “net railway operating income,” which wa.s for 1921 the 3.31 per cent referred to. Most
railroads have some income from sources other th an railway operations, such as interest and divi
dends on securities owned, which, added to the “net railway operating income,' constitutes what is
known as gross income.” t
There are certain fixed charges, however, which must be paid before the “net income” is
established, chief among these being interest on the bonds and the rental of leased lines. After
making deductions for these, it is estimated that there was practically nothing left of either the
“net railway operating income” of 3.31 per cent o r the “gross income.” In other words, the rail
roads had no “net income” for 1921. *
Some railroads fared better than others during 1921, just as some business men and fanners
fared better than others. Preferable location, foresighted management, superior machinery with
which to work—these are elements which have their influence in the showing made by railroad,
as they have in every other business enter prise. i
The railroads cannot serve the public adequately unless they are able to enlarge and im
prove their properties as the requirements of the country for transportation service develop. In
order for the railroads to grow, their securities must be attractive to investors, for the funds they ;
receive from the issuance of securities are used i n improving their properties.
The Illinois Central System, in common with other railroads, is striving to render a service
of satisfaction. It is eager to continue to improve and enlarge its facilities, so that its plant may
always be a little in advance of the needs of its patrons. An overloaded machine is never effi
cient, and if the overloading continues for any length of time the machine must necessarily de
teriorate. I
This statement is made in the interest of a better understanding of railway problems. We
ask that our patrons view the railway problem in its true light; that they realize that every ob
stacle placed in the path of railway progress rebounds against them, as much as against the
railroads themselves, and that the interests of the railroads and the interests of the public are in
separable. .
Constructive criticism and suggestions are invited. j j
President, Illinois Central System.
