SEMAPHORE SIGNALS, OPERATED ELECTRICALLY, 

AT ANY REQUIRED DISTANCE, WITH PRECISION AND CERTAINTY. 

Useful at all points where trains are to be signalled and controlled from a distance. 
Movement of signal effected by currents from magneto machines, which will operate any 
required number of Semaphores from the one station. The signals are full sized out- 
door Semaphore arms, mounted on posts about 20 ft. high, the Semaphore being 
locked in either position, whether " Danger " or "Safety " until properly oper- 
ated. These Electric Semaphore Signals are also employed in a superior 

AUTOMATIC SYSTEM OF RAILWAY BLOCK SIGNALS, 

of great simplicity and efficiency, which can be applied for less outlay than any 
other efficient system, and can be maintained at a remarkably low expense, also 

WATER TANK and STATION AUTOMATIC SIGNALS, 

For prevention of "Tail End" Collisions and accidents from following trains. 





MAGNETO ELECTRIC ALARM SIGNAL. 

Efficient Protection at Highway Crossings. 

Gives an unmistakable warning of the approach of 
every train, of such vigor and emphasis as to arouse the 
attention of the most unwary. Acts only by approach 
of train or engine. Gives no false alarms. Obviates em- 
ployment of Watchmen at majority of crossings, at great 
saving in expense. 

THIS SIGNAL GENERATES ITS OWN ELECTRICITY 

as required, and only by passage of train. No cup bat- 
teries are used, no freezing in winter, and no materials 
are required, except oil for lubrication. 

The action of the Alarm is effected by electricity generated by 
very compact, strong, and substantial Electric Generator Machines 
of the Maoneto type, fitted in strong iron cases which are placed 
alongside the tracks at required distance from the crossing. 

These generators have a train of gearing, with fly-wheel, actu- 
ated, through a powerful spring mechanism, by a lever which 
stands slightly above the surface of the rail, so as to be depressed 
by every passing wheel which has a " tread " wider than the rail ; 
producing an action which continues until train arrives at the 
crossing. 

The whole problem of its successful operation is essentially meclianicdl, with merely a 
spice of very simple electrical matters which are quite easily comprehended and acquired 
by any person possessing an ordinary amount of intelligence.

WESTINGHOUSE AUTOMATIC BRAKE, 



The WESTINGHOUSE AUTOMATIC BRAKE is now in use on 22,000 engines and 

250,000 cars. This includes 161,000 freight cars, which is about 16 per cent. 

of the entire freight car equipment of this country, and about 80 per cent. 

of these are engaged in inter-state traffic, affording the opportunity 

of controlling the speed of trains by their use on railways 

over which they may pass. Orders have been received 

for 100,000 of the improved quick-action brakes 

since December, 1887. 



The best results are obtained in freight train braking from having all the cars in a 
train fitted with power brakes, but several years' experience has proven conclusively that 
brakes can be successfully and profitably used on freight trains where but a portion of the 
cars are so equipped.

This Company are miners and owners of several thousand of acres of the best bitumin-

Central Extension Railroad, 84 miles from Columbus, Ohio, by this road. Capacity of 
mines 1,000 tons per day. 

The seams are from 9 to 14 feet thick, and the coal is known as Pittsburgh No. 8 and 
produces a coke equal if not superior to the best made in Pennsylvania and West Virginia, 
as tested by experts, and is the only coal in Ohio which yields coke adapted to the manu- 
facture of iron and steel. 

The Company now has in operation 125 coke ovens at Utley, Ohio, and is prepared to 
deliver to all lake ports in Ohio and all towns and cities accessible by rail and river at the 
lowest rates The machinery is all new and modern, put in by an experienced Pittsburgh 
firm. The capacity of the ovens is 200 tons per day 

The distance to Cincinnati, Cleveland, Chicago, St. Louis and Toledo is 150 to 225 miles 
less than Pittsburgh coal and coke operations. This coal for steam and making gas is 
unexcelled in Ohio.

"SAVIOR'S AMERICAN PORTLAND CEMENT" 

has been on the American market for twenty years in successful competition 
with all Imported Portland Cements. Buyers will save money and secure the 
best results by using this brand. Sold in barrels and cotton or paper sacks. 

JOHNSON & WILSON, General Selling Agents, 

Correspondence Solicited. Aldrich Court, 45 Broadway, New York. 



Note carefully the following letter: 

A. J. SWIFT, Chief Engineer. DELAWARE & HUDSON CANAL Co., 

Albany & Susquehanna t Office of the Chief Engineer, 

Rensselaer <fc Saratoga > Railroads. Northern Railroad Department, 

New York & Canada \ ALBANY, N. Y., Jan. 21, 1891. 

and Adirondack Railway. 
Messrs. JOHNSON & WILSON, Aldrich Court, New York. 

GENTLEMEN: In answer to your inquiry as to the characteristics and merits of the "Saylor's American 
Portland Cement," which we have purchased from you during the past two yeais. I am glad to be aide to say 
that it lias proved entirely satisfactory, and, in my opinion, is as desirable for railroad engineering structures 
as any imported Portland cement which we have used, and this statement covers all the best known brands in 
use. We have had occasion, during the past three months, to remove abutments in which your cement \\as 
used, and therefore I am able to say, with a full knowledge of the facts, that the results have been eminently 
satisfactory. We have used it in the coldest weather during the past two years with ;i large percentage of salt, 
and have found it entirely satisfactory. It sets quickly, which is, of course, a matter of great importance 
where the traffic of the railroad has to be carried on green masonry, and its hydraulic properties have been 
thoroughly tested in coffer-dams where we have used it, and have proved to be excellent. 

We propose to continue using it as our standard cement until something equally good and less expensive 
shall appear upon the market, nd this we fail to find as yet. 

It is. in my opinion, the cheapest high-class cement in use, and far superior, in every desirable character- 
istic to all other brands of natural cements. Yours very truly, 
[COPY] A. J. SWIFT, Chief Engineer. 



NOTE. The Delaware & Hudson Canal Co. have used six thousand (6,OOO) 
barrels of "Saylor's Portland Cement" to May 1, 1891. Put up in strong paper 
bags, saving 15 per cent, on the cost in barrels.

* Decrease. 

In the first five years of this period the mileage increased 40,759 miles, or 
more than 48 per cent., while the capital investment increased $2,804,381,537, 
or 57.5 per cent., this increase consisting of an increase of 57.1 per cent, in 
capital stock, 58.2 per cent, in funded debt, and 56 per cent, in other forms of 
indebtedness. 

In the five years ending with 1889 railroad mileage increased 36,244 miles, 
or 29.8 per cent. Capital investment increased $2,004,543,195, or 26.1 per 
cent. This increase in investment consisted of an increase of 19.5 per cent, in 
capital stock, 31.6 per cent, in funded debt, and 46.1 per cent, in other forms of 
indebtedness. In 1890 the mileage increased 3,426 miles, or 2.1 per cent.; the 
capital investment increased $441,693,651, this increase consisting of $145,140,- 
260 in capital stock, $277,536,254 in funded debt, and $19,017,137 in other 
forms of indebtedness. As compared with the average per year for the five-year 
period ending with 1884, the total capitalization of 1890 shows a decrease of 
$119,182,656, against an increase of $40,785,012, as compared with the yearly 
average for the subsequent five-year period ending with 1889. 



In the following statement are given the mileage, gross and net earnings

Compared with 1889, gross earnings increased $94,921,369, to which in- 
crease the elevated railroads contributed $927,481, the remainder, $93,993,888, 
being the increase upon the surface roads, made up by increases of $14,225,208 
in passenger earnings, $74,412,513 in freight earnings, and $5,356,167 in mail, 
express, and other miscellaneous earnings. 

The total number of miles of railroad in the United States at the close of 
1890 was 166,817, of which 5,739 miles were constructed during the year. The 
mileage of lines making returns of their share capital and funded and floating 
debts equalled 163,420, against 159,994 for 1889, the increase being 3,426 miles, 
the rate of increase being 2.14 per cent. 

The share capital corresponding to the mileage completed at the end of 
1890 equalled $4,640,239,578, against $4,495,099,318 in 1889, the increase 
equalling $145,140,260, the rate of increase being 3.22 per cent. 

The funded debts of all the lines at the close of the year aggregated 85,105,- 
902,025, a sum $277,536,254 in excess of the total of 1889 ($4,828,365,771), an 
increase of 5.75 per cent. 

The other forms of indebtedness of the several companies at the close of the 
year equalled $376,494,297, against $357,477,160 for 1889, the increase being 
819,017,137. The total share capital and indebtedness of all kinds of all the 
roads making returns equalled at the close of the year $10,12^,635,900, an 
increase in the year of $441,693,651 over the total of 1889 ($9,680,942,249), the 
rate of increase for the year being about 4. 5 per cent. 

The cost per mile of all roads making return, as measured by the amount of 
their stocks and bonded indebtedness, equalled $59,638, against $58,274 for 1889. 

In 1880 the total capital investment of the railroads of the United States, 
measured by the amounts of their share capital, funded and unfunded debts, 
was $5,108,241,906. Their gross earnings in that year equalled $615,401,931, 
or 12.4 per cent, on capital invested, while net earnings amounted to $255,- 
193,436, being 4.9 per cent, on capital invested. 



VI 

In 1885 the total capital investment was $7,852,533,179; gross earnings 
equalled $772,568,833, or 9.9 per cent, on capital invested ; net earnings, $269,- 
493,931, being 3.4 per cent, on capital invested. In 1886 the total investment 
was $8,163,148,652 ; gross earnings were $829,940,836, equal to 10.2 per cent, of 
investment, and net earnings $300, 603, 5 64, or 3.7 per cent, on capital. In 1887 
the total investment was $8,673,187,216; gross earnings were $940,150,702, 
equal to 10.8 per cent, of investment, and net earnings $334,989,119, or 3.9 per 
cent, on capital. In 1888 the total investment was $9,369,398,954 ; gross earn- 
ings were $960,256,270, equal to 10.2 per cent, of investment, and net earnings 
$301,631/051, or 3.2 per cent, on capital. In 1889 the total investment was 
$9,680,942,249 ; gross earnings were $1,002,926,059, equal to 10.3 per cent, on 
investment, and net earnings $322,122,721, or 3.3 per cent, on capital. 

In 1890 the total investment was $10,122,635,900 ; gross earnings were 
$1,097,847,428, equal to 10.8 per cent, on investment, and net earnings $346,- 
921,318, or 3.4 per cent, on capital. 

From these statements it will be seen that in 1890 the percentages of returns 
on investment were slightly increased over the percentages of the two preceding 
years, although not up to the averages of the earlier years of the decade. 

A year ago, in presenting the returns for 1889, the MANUAL, in comment- 
ing upon the showing then made, ventured this opinion : "From the current 
reports of earnings made by the leading companies it may conservatively be 
estimated that the earnings of the rail road systems during the full calendar year 
1889, average at least $6,700 per mile a rate which would equal $1,070,000,000 
per annum for the 160,000 miles now in operation." 

The year covered by the statements now presented is, as formerly, not 
uniform. Of all the roads whose operations are given, probably one half would 
cover the year ending June 30, 1890, the remaining half covering years ending 
at various dates between July 1 and December 31. It is particularly gratifying, 
therefore, to record the fact that the average rate of gross earnings per mile is 
considerably greater than the estimate made for the full calendar year of 1889, 
equalling $422 per mile more than the previous fiscal year, and $246 per mile 
more than the estimate for the calender year 1889. 

According to the records given in the MANUAL from year to year, there is 
at all times a large extent of new railroad mileage not fully open for traffic, as 
shown in the following statement : 



-FISCAL YEAR ENDING IN- 



1880. 1881. 1882. 1883. 1884. 1885. 1886. 1887. 1888. 1889. 1890.

The railroads not in operation each year, of course, show no earnings ; but 
their cost is included in the general summary of capital accounts, as the balance 
sheets of all railroad companies are made responsive to the total mileage com- 
pleted at the close of the fiscal year, and not to the average mileage in operation 
during the year. It would be hardly fair to assume that were those roads in 
operation they would show earnings equal per mile to the general average of the 



vii 

country, but as their cost is included in the total cost it is manifestly only fair 
to deduct it from such total in order that the return which the roads in opera- 
tion show upon their own capitalization may be shown. 

In 1889 there were about 7,000 miles of railroad which were not in operation 
at the close of the companies' fiscal years. The average capitalization of these 
roads in stock, bonds and other forms of indebtedness was at least 840,000 per 
mile, or about $280,000,000. The net increase in stock, bonds and debt of all 
the roads slightly exceeded that sum, amounting to $311,543,295, the differ- 
ence probably representing the capitalization for improvements on old lines. If 
the sum of 1280,000,000 be taken from the total capitalization, $9,680,942,249, 
there will remain $9,401,000,000, which may be fairly taken to represent the 
capitalization of all the railroads that earned a revenue in that fiscal year. 

For 1890 exact figures on this point have been compiled, and it is found 
that the mileage of Jines not in operation or not reporting in 1890 was 6,026.16 
miles, which, added to the mileage of road for which full statistics of operations 
were reported (157,976.46 miles), equals 164,002.62 miles, an excess of 582.26 
miles over the total mileage of all lines represented by capital stock and bonds 
at the end of the fiscal year, such excess of 582.26 miles representing the length 
of lines used under trackage contracts, and for that reason duplicated in the 
returns of the companies using them. 

From the total mileage of all railroads and the corresponding capitalization, 
the mileage and capitalization of lines not reporting operations are deducted 
with the following result : 

Miles. Stock. Bonds. Cost. Gross Earnings. Net Earnings. 

All Lines, 163,420 $4,640,239,578 85,105,902,025 $8,789,221,516 $1,086,040,207 $341,666,369 

Lines not operated, G,026 166,958,704 135,873.467 269.551,095 '. 

Net Amounts, 157.394 $4,473,280,874 $4,970,028,558 $8,519,670,421 $1,086,040,207 $341,666,369 

It is at once apparent that the capitalization, cost and mileage of these lines 
should be separated from the totals, when comparison of earnings is to be made 
with capitalization and cost. Following out this plan it is found that the gross 
earnings in 1890 equalled 12.3 per cent, of the total cost of all railroads, net 
earnings being equal to 3.9 per cent. But by eliminating from the total cost, 
$8,789,221.516, the item $269.551.095 representing the cost of the lines not 
reporting operations, the actual cost of the lines which reported those earnings 
is found to be $8,519,670.421, upon which basis gross earnings equalled 12.7 
per cent, and net 4.0 per cent. 

In explanation of the apparently large extent of mileage for which no 
operations are reported, it is proper to state that the greater part of it represents 
the mileage of roads which were in course of construction at the close of the 
fiscal year, or during a portion of that period, while a portion represents the 
mileage of lines which are incorporated but operated in connection with other 
private enterprises and no separate accounts rendered this latter class embrac- 
ing a number of roads in mining or lumbering districts throughout the country, 
the operations of which form only an incidental part of their owners' business. 
The number of common-carrier roads refusing to furnish statistics, or of which 
etatistics are not procurable in some form, is inconsiderable and insufficient to 
affect the tables in any way.

NOTE. The t; annual increase in mileage " usually represents the net increase within the year named. Below 
will be found a detailed statement of railroad construction for the three years 1838-90, and similar statements for 
preceding years will be found in past numbers of the MANUAL. The total mileage of all lines in the country at 
the end of 1889, as shown by the revised statements presented herewith, was 161,319.03 miles ; construction during 
the year, as per construction table following, 5.738.80 miles total, 167,057.83, from which deduct 163. 34 miles now 
reported abandoned, and 77.03 miles net miscellaneous decreases, the latter due to the elimination of temporary 
tracks now transferred to sidings, and the elimination of duplicate tracks, which is largely the result of the more 
accurate information now called for by the State Boards of Railroad Commissioners.

As the purpose of the " MANUAL OF RAILROADS " is to present a faithful 
abstract of the reports, or statements however made, of the several railroad 
companies of the United States, the publication of a New Annual Number, the 
present being the Twenty-Fourth, calls for but few remarks from the Publish- 
ers, the few that are deemed necessary being chiefly explanatory. The briefest 
examination of their work will impress every one with the great amount of 
labor involved, the collection and preparation for publication of the reports of 
a vast number of companies, each consulting its own ideas and conveniences as 
to the kind of statement to be made, and as to the time and mode of its publi- 
cation. The fiscal years of the several companies also differ greatly as to date. 
Of course each year helps to bring about a better system and greater uniformity 
in their reports, due very largely to the requisitions of Boards of Railroad Com- 
missioners now appointed for nearly every State. The United States Inter- 
State Commission has also rendered valuable service in the same direction. A 
most desirable improvement would be the establishment of a fiscal year com- 
mon to all the companies. The tendency of the greater number is to adopt the 
30th of June for the close of their fiscal year. A large number of important 
companies, however, still adhere to the old time, the close of the calendar year, 
a rule which prevents the earlier issue in the year of the MANUAL. As the Rail- 
road Companies do not usually publish their reports until a considerable time 
has elapsed after the close of their fiscal years, and as a long time also elapses 
before the reports of the Railroad Commissioners for the several States are 
made public after they are submitted to the several State authorities, it has so 
far been impossible to issue the MANUAL at dates earlier than those at which it 
usually appears. Another cause of delay is the submission to the proper officers 
of the several railroad companies of proofs of the statements of their reports 
prepared for publication in the MANUAL. Such submission for correction gives 
a semi-official character to every statement published in the MANUAL, a fact 
which greatly increases its value to 'the public, as all but absolute accuracy is 
thereby secured. 

Attention is specially called to the accompanying Tabulations of the progress 
and results of the operations of the railroads of the country for a series of years. 
They are of great interest and value, presenting at a glance information beyond 
the reach of people actively engaged in affairs, as they are to be arrived at only 



XX11 

by a vast amount of laborious research by experts. By referring to the Intro- 
duction to the MANUAL one has all this information fully prepared for use. 
Nothing will more impress one with the magnitude of our Railroad System, and 
the labor required in properly setting forth the results that have been achieved. 
The progress made by our people in the construction and management of rail- 
roads has no parallel, and is the most significant illustration of the value of our 
Political Institutions which have no other warrant than their usefulness and 
which leave the articulations of the people perfectly free. 

With the increase in number and importance of railroads, and with the 
wider relations and the greater volume of their traffic, the time has come when 
much matter heretofore included in one volume is to be omitted to appear in 
another place and form. The publishers of the MANUAL have consequently 
determined to publish two Supplementary Volumes one entitled " POOR'S 
DIRECTORY OF RAILWAY OFFICIALS," the other, " POOR'S HAND-BOOK OF IN- 
VESTMENT SECURITIES." In the first will be given, in addition to a full list of 
the railroad companies of the United States, and of the contiguous countries of 
Canada and Mexico, and of the important officers connected therewith, detailed 
statements of the railroads of other American States, of private tramways, and 
of the street railways of the United States and Canada. Street railroads, now so 
important a factor in the movement of our urban population, though of little 
interest for the general public, possess a great interest to investors, manufact- 
urers, etc. 

"POOR'S HAND BOOK OF INVESTMENT SECURITIES" will cover the entire 
field of investment in the United States the financial condition, indebtedness, 
sources of income, assets and population of every State, county, city, and 
town issuing its obligations for any purpose. It will also contain full state- 
ments of the industrial enterprises in which the public, by virtue of holding 
evidences of debt issued by them, secure an interest. Such enterprises have in 
recent years become very numerous, and unfortunately the tendency in every 
department of production and distribution being toward consolidation of 
smaller into greater interests, our people have a continent for their field, and 
the unexampled progress in the number and traffic of their railroads is only an 
illustration of that which has been made, and which is to be made, in every 
department of enterprise, and industry. Of the industrial enterprises springing 
up on every hand, the public requires information as trustworthy as that now 
supplied by the Manual in reference to railroads, and to which we appeal in 
evidence of the faithfulness and competency likely to be displayed in the new 
enterprises upon which we have entered.

The authorized issue of consolidated mortgage bonds is $1,800,000, of which $1,000,000 
are reserved to retire the 1st mortgage bonds of 1881, and $440,300 are in treasury, leaving 
$359,700 outstanding as above. The 2d mortgage bonds are income for five years, and are a 
first lien on the company's lands. Receipts from land sales are applicable to payment of 
interest on 2d mortgage lands, but when interest is paid from earnings they go to a sinking 
fund for retirement of the bonds. Interest on all three issues is payable at the office of the 
Central Trust Co., New York, trustee. 

Land Department. Under Act of Congres- of August 11, 1856, the Vicksbura: and 
Meridian Railroad Company received a land grant estimated at 404,800 acres. In the reor- 
ganization, the Alabama and Vickburg Railway Company acquired at the public sale, Febru- 
ary 4, 1889, 131,189.19 acres, of which 6,960 acres were sold between that date and the close 
of the last fiscal year, leaving 124,229.19 unsold July 1, 1890. To this has been added 640 
acres purchased at tax sales, etc., making the total 124,869.19 acres, in addition to which the 
company has acquired the " surface rights " to 880 acres. The company also reserved the 
minerals on 840 acres of the 6,960 acres sold as above stated, thus giving it the minerals 
and mining privileges on 1,720 acres. Receipts from land sales during the period from 
February 4, 1889, to June 30, 1890 : Fee simple, 6,120 acres (cash, $7.315 ; notes, $6,945),

1890, operated by the Atchison Co.

Western RR., and the St. Joseph, St. Louis and Santa Fe Ry., were merged into the Atchi- 
son System proper. 

In May, 1890, the company purchased the common and preferred stock of the St. Louis 
and San Francisco Ry. Co., issuing for that purpose $27,000,000 new stock, or at the rate of 
one share and three-eighths of new stock for one share of San Francisco preferred, and three- 
quarters of one share of new stock for one share of San Francisco common. 

In October, 1890, the Atchison purchased the entire capital stock ($8,000,000) of the 
Colorado Midland RR. Co. on terms equivalent to $1,160,000 in cash, and $5,333,400 in Atchi. 
son stock. 

In November, 1890, under a traffic arrangement with the Chicago, Peoria and St. Louis 
RR. Co., a through line between Chicago and St. Louis was opened. The Chicago Elevated 
Terminal Ry. Co. was organized in August, 1890, in the interest of this company to secure a 
better means of entering Chicago.

aid in its construction the Government of the United States made a grant of 12.800 acres of public lands per mile 
of road constructed in the States, and 25,600 acres per mile in the Territories. Of this grant 936,169.51 acres have 
been patented. To provide the means for the construction of this portion of the line, first mortgage land grant 
bonds, at rate of not exceeding 25,000 to the mile, and income bonds to the amount of $18,750 per mile, were 
authorized. Further provision %vas made for the issue, in case of need, of 2d mortgage bonds to the amount of 
S10,000 to the mile, to provide additional means for the construction of the road. The Atchison. Topeka and 
Santa Fe and the St. Louis and the San Francisco Cos. guaranteed 25 per cent, of gross earnings derived from in- 
terchange of traffic with this road to meet any deficiency in interest on first mortgage bonds, such advances to be 
treated as a loan, repayable with interest. On the 1st of January, 1887, the company made a new issue of 4 per 
cent, bonds, principal and interest of which are guaranteed by the Atchison and the San Francisco Companies, a* 
stated below. (For statement of the relations of the Atlantic and Pacific KB. Co. with the Atchuon, Topeka and 
Santa F~ RR. Co., see MANUAL for 1886, page 622.) 

The construction of the Western Division, from A. & P. Junction near Albuquerque to the Colorado River, 
559.64, was begun in May, 1880, and completed in August, 18S3. 

On the 1st of October, 1884, the Mojave Division of the Southern Pacific RR. was transferred to this company 
under a contract of purchase and lease dated August 20. 1884. By the terms of the contract this company agrees 
to purchase the Mojave Division when the present mortgage, due in April, 1905, is paid off. this company to pay 
S30.GOO per mile, or $7,271.000, payable one-sixth part, or 1,211,850 in cash, and the balance at the option of this 
company, either in cash or in this company's 1st mortgage 6 per cent, bonds at par. Until the title is clear, this 
company leases the road, paying as rental 436.266 yearly, being $1.800 per mile; such rental being guaranteed by 
the Atchison. Topeka and San'ta Fe RR. Co. and the St. Louis and San Francisco Ry. Co. 

Of the Central Division, 34 miles, from Seneca to Vinitia. Ind. Ten. were completed in 1873. During 1882 the 
line was extended 63 miles to Tulsa ; to Red Fork, 3 miles, in 1883 ; and to Sapulpa, 10.05 miles, in 1886. Of the 
total length. 112.05 miles, 85 miles hare been accepted by the Government. 

This^road passed under the control of the Atchison by that company's purchase of the capital stock of the 
St. Louis and San Francisco Ry. Co. (statement for which see).

veston to Arcolo, 43 miles, in 1877, and to Richmond, 64 miles, in 1878. On April 15, 1879, the road was sold under 
foreclosure and the company reorganized. On August 1, 1880, the new company completed the line to Brenham, 
126 miles ; to Belton in February, 1881, and to Lampasas on May 15, 1882. The Fort \\ orth branch was com- 
pleted and opened for business on December 8, 1881. The eastern branch, formerly the Central and Montgomery 
RR., was purchased and put in operation on June 15, 1882. The Dallas branch was purchased and put in opera- 
tion August 1, 1882. 

During the year 1885, 89 miles of new road were opened, as follows : 71 miles on main line, from Lampasas 
to Brownwood, and 18 miles from Montgomery to Conroe. During the year 1886 the following extensions were 
made : Brownwood, Tex., to Ballinger, Tex., 62.5 miles ; Dallas, Tex., to Honey Grove, Tex., 78.9 miles ; and 
Fort Worth, Tex., to Gainesville, Tex., 64:4 miles, making a total construction of road opened during the year 
of 205.8 miles. In 1887 the main line was extended north to junction with A., T. & S. F. RR. at Purcell. in the 
Ind. Ter., 100 miles. The line to Paris was completed, 43.53 miles, and branch from Cleburne to Weatherford, 
41.73 miles. Under construction, Ballinger to San Angelo, 40 miles. 

The company is entitled to the State land grant of 16 sections (640 acres each) for each mile of road built and 
equipped. At the date of this report there were owing by the State 531,500 acres. The company also owns a 
large amount of land along the line of its road, and most of the town sites, all of which are yearly increasing in 
value.

issued by the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe RR. Co., to represent its increased mileage, this later issue making the 
entire issue of $8,000,000 and confirming absolutely the ownership of the Gulf lines by the Atchison Company.

SONORA RAILWAY SYSTEM. This system comprises the lines of New Mexico and Arizona RR. 
Co., 87.78 miles, and the Sonora Ry. Co., 262.41 miles, forming a through line from Benson, Ariz., on the South- 
ern Pacific RR., to Guaymas, on Gulf of California, State of Sonora. Mexico total length. 350.19 miles. Sidings, 
23.17; steel rails, 372.19 miles. These lines were built and opened in 1882. From Ricon on the Rio Grande, 
Mexico and Pacific branch, the Atchison Company began in 1880 the construction of a line southwest toward the 
projected Sonora System. On March 6, 1881, it was completed to Deming, a distance of 53 miles, connecting 
at that point with the Southern Pacific System. It was intended to continue the line farther west to a direct con- 
nection with the Sonora System, but a satisfactory proposition having been made by the Southern Pacific RR. 
Co. for the joint use of its track from Deming to Benson. 174 miles, that project was temporarily abandoned. 
Control of this system was acquired by the Atchison Company at the time of its construction by the purchase of 
the entire capital stock of the Sonora Ry. Co., amounting to $5,248.000 at a cost of $2.624,000, the Atchison also 
guaranteeing interest on its bonds. The cost of constructing the New Mexico and Arizona was advanced by the 
Atchison Company. (See statement of Sonora RR. Co.)

POORS MANUAL ST. LOUIS AND SAN FRANCISCO RY. CO. 



History. The St. Louis and San Francisco Ry. Co., purchased the property of the Atlan- 
tic and Pacific RR. Co., sold under foreclosure September 8, 1876. The A. & P. was chartered 
July 27, 1866, and in 1870 purchased the southwest branch of the Pacific RR. of Missouri, 
and completed it to Red Fork, Ind. Ter., and beyond. (See MANUAL for 1885, page 802.) 

This company is equally interested with the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad 
Company in the Atlantic and Pacific Railroad Company, (See statement for the Atchison, 
Topeka and Santa Fe RR. Co.) ' 

A bridge across the Arkansas River at Van Buren has been built by the Fort Smith and 
Van Buren Bridge Co., the capital stock of which is owned or controlled by this company. 
First mortgage 6 per cent, bonds, due April 1, 1910, and guaranteed by this company, have 
been issued on the bridge to the amount of $475,000. 

The company increased its mileage 10 miles, under the lease for 98 years from January 
1, 1886, of the Kansas City and Southwestern Railroad. 

The road between Fort Smith and Paris was opened for traffic July 1, 1887, and connects 
at Paris with the Transcontinental branch of the Texas and Pacific Ry., and with the Gulf, 
Colorado and Santa Fe RR. (controlled by the Atchison Co.). 

On January 30, 1888, the company took possession, under lease of the Kansas Midland 
Ry., between Wichita and Ellsworth, Kan., a distance of 107.20 miles. 

Daring 1888 this line of the St. Louis, Kansas and Southern RR. was extended from Bluff 
to Anthony, Kan., a distance of 10.54 miles. 

In May, 1890, this road passed into the control of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe 
RR. Co. , by the purchase by that company of the common and preferred stock (but not the 
first preferred) of the St. Louis and San Francisco Co., issuing for that purpose $27,000,000 
new stock, or at the rate of one and three-eighth shares of new stock for one share of San 
Francisco preferred, and three-quarters of one share of new stock for one share of San Fran- 
cisco common.

NOTE. The interest on the securities in the Sinking Funds of Loans of 1870. 1872, and 1874 is turned into the 
company's treasury for general purposes, and is treated as a miscellaneous receipt, amounting to S3: 4.703.36- 
The interest on the face of the loans has to be paid in full, and is therefore so charged. For the increments on 
securities' in Sinking Funds on Loans of 1870, 1872, and 1874, and the annual appropriations, B. & O. Consolidated 
Mortgage Bonds are i.-sued as provided for in the $29,600.000 Mortgage of December 19, 1887.

redeemable at the option of the company. The loan of 1853-1885 was extended at 4 per cent, 
to October 1, 1935. 

The sterling- sinking fund bonds of 1870-1895 are secured on the main stem, Baltimore to 
Wheeling, 379.80 miles, and are redeemable by action of the sinking fund (16,000 per annum), 
which is applied annually in March to purchase of these bonds, if not above par; but if above 
par the fund may be invested in other securities. 

The sterling sinking fund bonds of 1872-1902 are of 200 each ; are secured on main

chase of these bonds, if below par, but if above par the fund may be invested in other securi- 
ties. Bonds of this issue are free of all State and United States taxes ; principal and interest 
payable at office of London agents. 

The sterling sinking fund bonds of 1874-1910 are of 200 each, and in other respects

payment, namely, $40,000 of the principal of the bonds for one million dollars given for the 
purchase of the interest of the city in the Pittsburgh and Connellsville Railroad Company 
has been made, thus reducing this obligation to $400,000. 

The $7,744,000 (1,600,000) five per cent, sterling bonds, 1877-1927, are redeemable by 
action of sinking fund of 7,500 per annum and are secured by an equal amount of mortgage 
bonds of the B. & O. & C. RR. Cos., of the same date, bearing 6 per cent, interest, and 
28,900 shares ($1,445,000) of capital stock of said companies, both placed in the hands of

Baltimore and Ohio Southwestern Railroad. The plan of reorganization of the Cincinnati, Washington and 
Baltimore Railroad Company, unde.r the new name of the Baltimore" and Ohio Southwestern Railroad Cempany, 
has been fully and successfully consummated. Under the plan of reorganization the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad 
Company has received the several Baltimore and Ohio Southwestern Railroad Company's securities referred to in 
the annual report of 1889. 

Baltimore Belt Railroad. The Baltimore Belt Railroad Company, incorporated for the purpose of construct- 
ing a line of railway through and around the City of Baltimore, extending from the vicinity of Bay View to a point 
near Camden Station, Baltimore, has commenced and is rapidly pressing the construction of its line. The Balti- 
more and Ohio Railroad Company has made a perpetual traffic contract for the use of the line of the Belt Railroad 
Company, with the view of using the same instead of its present system, which includes the transfer by ferry from 
Locust Point to Canton. The terms of the agreement are, that the traffic of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad 
Company shall amount to the interest upon the bonded debt of the Belt Company, namely, 5 per cent, per annum 
on an indebtedness riot to exceed $6,000,000. 

Baltimore and Eastern Shore Railroad'. The Baltimore and Eastern Shore Railroad Company has com- 
pleted its line of railway and ferry from Ocean City, Md., to Bay Ridge, a distance of 99 miles. An agreement on 
favorable terms has been made between this company and the Eastern Shore Company for the interchange of 
traffic. 

Akron and Chicago Junction Railroad the Valley Railway of Ohio. With a view of securing a much 
needed connection with an additional lake port, the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company, during the past year, 
purchased a controlling interest in the Valley Railway of Ohio, extending from Valley Junction to Cleveland 
(where it has valuable terminals), a distance of 75 miles. The control of this road facilitated the construction of a 
connecting line between Akron and Chicago Junction, the present terminus of the Chicago Division of the Balti- 
more and Ohio Railroad. The Akron and Chicago Junction Railroad Company, controlled by the Baltimore and 
Oliio Railroad Company, is now constructing this connecting line of 73 miles. It will be in operation during the 
present year, and will furnish the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company with a shorter and better graded line to 
Chicago than it has heretofore possessed. 

Columbus and Cincinnati Midland Railroad. The Columbus and Cincinnati Railroad, extending from 
Columbus, Ohio, to Midland City, 45 miles east of Cincinnati, on the Baltimore and Ohio Southwestern Railroad, 
was, during the past year, leased by the Central Ohio Railroad Company as reorganized, and the lease has been 
assigned to the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company. The Central Ohio Railroad Company has guaranteed the 
interest upon $2,000,000 4$- percent, bonds of the Columbus and Cincinnati Midland Railroad Company, upon 
$240,000 4J per cent, debenture bonds, and 3 per cent., commencing with January 1, 1895, upon $1,000.000 of pre- 
ferred non-voting stock ; and the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company has assumed those obligations and in 
consideration therefor has received the entire voting capital stock of the Columbus and Cincinnati Midland Rail-

NOTE. In 1889 the company changed its fiscal year from September 30 to June 30 to conform to the fiscal 
year adopted by the Interstate Commerce Commission and the Massachusetts State Board of RR. Commissioners, 
and its annual report for 1889 covers, in consequence, only nine months to June 30. For the purpose of compari- 
son the statistics of operations eiven in above statement are those for the full year, Ju\y 1, 1888. to June 30, 1889, 
in which are included the last three months of the preceding fiscal year. 

At the annual meeting in September, 1890, it was voted to increase the capital stock 
$5,000,000 to provide means for paying off the 7 per cent, bonds maturing in 1892 and for 
certain improvements to be made on the line of the road.

History. Consolidation, May 9, 1890, of the Boston and Maine, the Eastern and the 
Portsmouth Great Falls and Conway RR. Cos. For history of those companies, see MANUAL

stock receive $83.28 in new stock for every $100 turned in ; so that the total stock of the 
Boston and Maine RR. equals the combined stock of the three roads before consolidation. On 
October 1, 1890, the company took possession of the Northern RR. in New Hampshire and 
its leased lines, the Concord and Claremont, and the Peterboro and Hillsboro, under the 
terms of a lease made to the Boston and Lowell RR. Co. for 99 years from January 1, 1890,

$1,000,000, and in June of the same year was appointed receiver of the property of the Ver- 
mont Central arid Vermont aud Canada RR. Cos., and continued to act in that capacity till 
June 30, 1884, when a reorganization of the Vermont Central and Vermont and Canada RR. 
Cos, was effected, and those companies were practically consolidated under the title of the 
Consolidated Railway Company of Vermont. The Central Vermont then took leases of the 
roads and leased lines of the Consolidated Co. Prior to this date the Central Vermont had 
taken leases of the Montreal and Vermont Junction, the Waterloo and Magog, and the New 
London Northern ; and there was transferred to it at the date of the reorganization, the 
Stanstead, Shefford and Chambly RR., subject to a small mortgage held by parties in Eng- 
land. On the first of June, 1886, the Central Vermont also leased the Ogdensburg and Lake 
Champlain RR , ia the common stock of which it had previously acquired a large interest. 

A detailed history of the Vermont Central and Vermont and Canada RR. Cos., showing 
the various leases, consolidations, defaults, receiverships, and reorganizations since the orga- 
nization of the companies, was given in the MANUAL for 1887, page 25. The plan of reor- 
ganization outlined there has been carried out, and the entire debt of the Vermont Central 
Co. has been either paid or converted into the obligations of the Central Vermont RR. Co.

B. & L. V. RR.) and its operations are included below.

over which the company has a trackage arrangement ; the Maysville and Big Sandy Rail- 
road, from Ashland to Covington, Ky., 143 miles, and the Covington and Cincinnati Elevated 
Railroad and Transfer and Bridge Company from Covington to Cincinnati, 2 miles, both 
operated and controlled by the Chesapeake and Ohio Ry. Co. 

The Chesapeake and Ohio Railway Company has recently entered into a lease in per- 
petuity from the. Virginia Midland Railway Company of the portion of the latter company's 
railway between Gordonsville, Va., and Orange, Va., 12 miles, and obtaining trackage 
rights in perpetuity from April 1, 1891, over the portion of the Virginia Midland Railway 
Company's line between Orange and Alexandria, 78 miles. Arrangements are now under 
consideration for building, or acquiring rights, between Alexandria and Washington. 

History. This company was organized July 1, 1878, as successor to a company of the 
same name, whose property was sold under foreclosure April 2, 1878. See MANUAL for 1888, 
page 603. The company having defaulted on its interest payments, a receiver was appointed 
October 28, 1887. Subsequently a plan of reorganization was agreed upon and carried out 
successfully, without foreclosure, and the property was turned over to the reorganized com- 
pany October 1, 1888. The plan of reorganization was given in full in the MANUAL for 1888. 
On January 1, 1889, the Maysville and Big Sandy RR. and the Cincinnati Bridge were turned 
over to the company by the contractors, and on January 20, 1890, the Richmond and Alle- 
ghany RR. (Richmond to Clifton Forge and Lexington Branch) was acquired. 

The Hawk's Nest, Cabin Creek and Kinneconnick branches were built in 1890. The 
company has under construction a branch from Paint Creek to coal mines and timber lands, 
about 5 miles, the grading for which is completed, but no rails laid ; and a branch up Craig's 
Creek from Eagle Mountain, on the James River Division, to New Castle, Va., about 26 miles, 
to be finished about March, 1891, also a branch from Covington, Va., to Hot Springs, Va., a 
distance of 26 miles.

under foreclosure August 12, 1890. For history of the Chicago and Atlantic Co. and its 
relations with the Erie, see MANUAL for 1890, pp. 326 and 327. 

The plan of reorganization provided for the issue of $100,000 stock, $12,000,000 1st 
mortgage bonds, and $10,000,000 income 5s, non-cumulative. Of the new firsts, $6,825,000 
were exchanged for the old firsts, $2,000,000 were paid to the Erie for debts due, $700,000 
were exchanged for old seconds, $2,000,000 for betterments, and the remainder for various 
expenses. Of the new seconds, $975,000 were applied to the old firsts, $4,000,000 to the old 
stock, and $5,000,000 to the Erie for its guarantee of interest on the firsts. Old firsts received 
$1,050 in new firsts and $150 in incomes, and the old seconds 40 per cent, of their face value 
in new firsts. The old stock received at the rate of 40 per cent, in the incomes. 

The road was formally turned over to the Erie on September 1, 1890, under an agree- 
ment by which a certain percentage of the gross earnings is to be applied first, to payment 
of interest on first mortgage bonds ; second, to payment of any advances (with interest at 5 
per cent.) by the Erie to meet first mortgage bond interest ; thirdly, to payment of interest on 
the income bonds ; the percentage of gross earnings so applied to equal 22| per cent, of earn- 
ings up to $2,250,000, 25 per cent, up to $2,750,000, 27i per cent, up to $3,250,000, and if 
they exceed the last named sum in any year the percentage to be 29 per cent.

History. The Chicago and Eastern Illinois Railroad Company is successor to the Chi- 
cago, Danville and Vincennes RR. Co., whose road was sold under foreclosure in 1877 (see 
MANUAL for 1885, page 652, and MANUAL for 1888, page 365). The Chicago and Indiana Coal 
Railway Company is a consolidation, April 14, 1886, of the Chicago and Indiana Coal and the 
Indiana Ry. Cos. For history of those companies, see MANUAL for 1888, page 365. 

In February, 1889, the stockholders of the Chicago and Indiana Coal Railway Company 
were offered in exchange for their stock new stock of the Chicago and Eastern Illinois RR. 
Co., share for share, both common and preferred. The exchange was made and the stock of 
the Chicago and Indiana Coal Ry. Co. is now held in the treasury of the Chicago and Eastern 
Illinois RR. Co. 

The Chicago and Eastern Illinois RR. Co. owns one-fifth interest in the Chicago and 
Western Indiana RR., and uses its lines from Dolton, 111., to secure an entrance into Chicago. 
Annual rental, $99,450, the additional rental ($43,200 over previous years) carrying the 
ownership. 

The Evansville, Terre Haute and Chicago RR. (which see) is leased by this company and 
operated as its Terre Haute Division. By this lease control was acquired of the Evansville 
and Terre Haute RR. Co.'s Rockville extension, 6.10 miles, and of the Indiana Block Coal RR., 
12 61 miles, the C. & E. I. RR. Co. assuming all rentals and taxes on those roads, as previously 
paid by the E., T. H. & C. Ry. Co. 

On May 1, 1887, the Chicago and Indiana Coal Ry. Co. took a lease of that part of the 
Chicago and West Michigan Ry., between La Crosse, Ind., and New Buffalo, Mich., at a 
rental of $19,500 per annum ; rental reduced in November, 1889, to $13,000 per annum.

tiguous or tributary to this company's line, but chiefly through the medium of companies 
organized for the purpose of building such extensions, the Chicago and Northwestern By. 
Co. supplying all the means therefor, and holding all the stocks and bonds of the several 
companies. In 1881 the company began a system of absorption of these proprietary com- 
panies, and in 1884 it purchased certain lines in Iowa formerly held under lease. (See 
MANUAL for 1890.) 

The company owns the entire share capital of the Fremont, Elkhorn and Missouri Valley 
RR. Co., and a majority interest in the Sioux City and Pacific RR. Co., and Chicago, St. Paul, 
Minneapolis and Omaha Ry. Co. (For full historical sketch of the Chicago and Northwest-

The stocks of proprietary companies, all of which are owned by the Chicago and North- 
western Railway Company, and which were in previous years entered on the books at their 
par value, while possessing but a nominal value as assets of the company, have since 1887 
been entered at their estimated value, with reference to cost, and the stated cost of the prop- 
erties has been correspondingly reduced.
