"Both the eastern and western prexs are
discussing Indiana, Bloomington and West
ern matters with much seeming wisdom,
and so contradictory are the rejiorts that the
direct words of an ollhi.il are probably of
unusual Interest. A director of the road
in a recent interview said:
"More than a majority of the first and
second eastern division bonds have joined
the reorganization plan, and it looks as
though the entire issue would be In before
the 15th. Over 31.000,000 of the incomes
have been deposited, although their time
does not expire until March 1. The stock
of the Sandusky division and 70 ier cent
of the incomes of the Indiana, Blooming
ton and Western will make up the preferred
stock of the reorganized comaii). The
consolidation will leave the comiauy with
out floating debt, free from car truts. and
will make the fixed charges below the net
earnings of 1SS5, which wa. the poorest
year In the history of the company. The
charges. Including dividends on the pre
ferred stock, will be s::00,000 ier annum
less than before the consolidation."
