tains as well as gratified at tne excellencies and merit
it possesses.
It has been by no means an easy task to gather the
statistics and information to be found in this S up p le ­
me n t . Some companies have been accommodating and
responsive; but a large number preferred to keep the
facts as to their securities and earniDgs to themselves.
This has forced us in many cases to resort to other
than direct methods for our information. It would
not do to relate here by what means we have succeeded
and through what agencies many of onr reports have
reached us. It is sufficient to state, as the result of
our efforts, that we have been enabled to include in
our list full reports from the roads of all large cities,
beside very many of the roads in smaller places, though
some of the latter are not as yet of interest to our read­
ers. Large concerns, however, so often, and in a night
as it were, grow out of these small beginnings that we
shall hardly be satisfied until we have included every
road, little and big, within the pages of our publica­
tion.
It only remains for us to repeat what we have stated
on previous occasions, that no increase in the subscrip­
tion price of the C hronicle is made to cover any part
of the added expense which the preparation of this
S upplement has caused and which its quarterly issue
hereafter will continue to occasion the publishers. We
present it to our subscribers without charge just as we
do our I nvestors ’ S upplement and our State a n d
C ity S upplement , and just as we shall our monthly
Q uotation S upp lement , which is now in courso of
preparation and will be ready in about two months.

With commerce, capital and the uses for capital in­
creasing year by year, no stopping place is left for a
progressive journal. When a California express meant a
stage coach, “ Hunt's Merchants' Magazine'' fitted into
trade conditions admirably, satisfying every requirement
of the merchant, banker and capitalist. Since the rail­
road, the telegraph and the cable began to impress their
character upon the movements of traffic and of enter­
prise, journalism has had to partake of the same nature
and spirit, and can remain in touch with business inter­
ests only by conforming to the more rapid development
— constantly providing additional service to supply the
multiplying wants.
In the course of affairs a new device has suddenly
brought a new department to the notice of investors.
Within a very brief period horse railroads of small
earning capacity have been supplanted by rapid-transit
lines commanding a largely increased income. The
former were of merely local interest, but the latter ap­

roads. The great extension of the street railway sys­
tem under the use of the electric and cable method of
traction, and the enormous amounts of capital invested
in it, make the question an important as well as an
interesting one.
A difficulty which confronts the investigator at the
outset is that past experience offers very little guide.
The new methods of propulsion have revolutionized
surface railway business. Formerly street railways were
confined in great measure to the cities or the larger
towns. N ow the “ trolley ” runs way out into the
remoter suburbs, and thus travel over the surface lines
is no longer merely or chiefly urban, but suburban as
well. Some of the increase in traffic which has resulted
from the enlargement and multiplication of the street
roads has been at the expense of the older method of
transit— that is at the expense of the steam railways—
but the trolley and the cable lines have also created a
great deal of entirely new traffic. In fact no feature
connected with the recent growth of the new system of
transit has been so striking as the wonderful expansion
in the business of the lines which has followed from the
change. Here in N ew Y o rk and Brooklyn the substi­
tution of cable traction and electricity for horses as
motive power has been in nearly every case attended by
a very great increase in travel over the lines making
the change.
But of course the fact that the new system is
superior to and possesses many advantages over the
old is self-evident, and therefore not open to dis­
cussion. The point of importance, as affecting the
investments in these properties, is whether a traffic
having been built up, it is likely to suffer any marked
diminution as a result of serious business depression.
The answer is by no means as simple as might appear
from a superficial consideration of the matter. Much
o f the traffic of the street railways, particularly in the
larger cities, is part of the daily routine o f life, and
goes on whether business is good or bad. I t is prob­
ably true too that the proportion of such traffic on
these lines is larger than that on the steam roads. T o
the extent that this is so of course the factor of stability
is greater than in the other case. I t w ill be under­
stood that stability in this sense does not mean that the
volume of such traffic remains stationary year after
year. I t simply implies that whatever changes take
place are in the one direction— that is, the traffic does
not fall off, but it increases with the growth of the
locality served and the growth of population.
There is however with the street railways as with
the steam roads a variable quantity, only as already said
it may form a smaller portion o f the whole. A good
many work people patronize these lines going to and
from their daily work. This being so, it is obvious
that when large numbers of wage-earners are out of
employment, and consequently are not obliged to use
the roads, the traffic from that source must suffer.
I t is evident, too, that aside from those who are with­
out work there will be others who are only partly
employed or have had their wages reduced, and having
thus a diminished income are forced to economize.
Some of these may conclude to walk instead o f ride,
or they may find it desirable to change their place of
residence and move nearer to the point of their em ­
ployment. Again, in times of depression not merely
work people but practically all classes of persons find
their incomes curtailed, and car fares are saved
wherever possible. F or short distances a man will
walk, and his wife and daughters while shopping

will do the same— all of which is a loss to the street
railways.
I t is thus clear that there are various ways in which
the traffic of the street railways may diminish in a
period of depression. But thus far certainly these
roads— speaking of them as a whole— have done remark­
ably well. Through the change in their motive power
which so many of them have made during the last few
years they have been able to add so very largely to
their traffic that the effects o f the depression in trade
do not appear to any great extent in the results of their
operations. In this city and Brooklyn the cable and
the trolley have taken away much traffic from the
elevated railroads. T h e business of these latter roads
is of course closely analagous to that of the street roads,
and persons not fam iliar with the actual facts of the
case m ight think that the great losses in traffic which
these roads have shown in their monthly and quarterly
returns simply reflect the prevailing industrial prostra­
tion. A few years ago no company was considered to
have such an assured traffic and income as the Manhat­
tan Elevated. I t was a subject of common remark at
the time that while Western and Southern roads might
suffer from poor crops, low rates, or bad trade, the
Manhattan Elevated had a traffic which could always
be depended on, and which would remain unaffected by
any disturbing circumstances and conditions. But in
the company’ s latest fiscal year— the year to June 30,
1894— the gross earnings of the road fell off almost a
million dollars, and the number of passengers carried
diminished 18f millions.
This falling off in some measure doubtless is due to
business depression, but in the main the reason for it
is to be found in other causes. The Manhattan E le­
vated has in some respects pursued a short-sighted
policy, whereas the surface street roads have on the
contrary pursued a very enlightened policy. They
have in several instances replaced the horse car lines
by costly cable roads, and they have inaugurate! an ex­
tensive system of transfers, whereby passengers are
given the privilege of passing over various connecting
and intersecting roads for a single fare. As a conse­
quence the elevated road has lost passengers, while the
surface roads have gained them. Perhaps as good an
illustration of this as any that could be furnished is
found in the return which the company has recently
filed with the Railroad Commissioners at Albany for
the quarter ending December 31, 1894, showing a loss
in gross revenues as compared with the corresponding
quarter o f 1893 of $210,441. This return was pub­
lished in the Chronicle of February 16, page 302. In
the same issue on the next page (page 303) we also
gave the return of the Third Avenue (street) Railroad,
showing gross of $596,752 in the quarter in 1894,
against $377,292 in the quarter in 1893, an increase o f
$219,460. Thus there is an almost exact correspond­
ence between the loss on the Manhattan Elevated and
the gain on the Th ird Avenue road. T o complete the
parallel it only needs to be said that the Third Avenue
Railroad follows the Third Avenue line of the Elevated
its entire length, and that the former is now a cable
road where before it was a horse-car line.
So also in the case of the elevated roads in Brooklyn.
Business depression has hurt them of course, but the
competition of the surface roads, which are now
nearly all trolley lines, has hurt them still more.
This appears very clearly from a recently-published
statement of the traffic on both the elevated and the
surface roads for the year ending June 30, 1894, as

STREET RAILWAYS.
compared with the year ending June 30, 1893. In this
period the number of passengers carried by the elevated
roads (the Brooklyn Elevated and the Kings County)
fell off nearly 8 millions (7,959,562), but in the same
time the number carried by the electric roads i/icreastd
5,268,131, leaving a net loss in the grand total of only
2,691,431, or less than 1£ per cent. The elevated roads
reported continuous losses in gross receipts up to the
time of the strike on the electric roads a few weeks ago,
when their traffic at once increased almost 100 per cent;
and though the strike has now terminated the returns
still show handsome gains.
Another consideration should not be lost sight of as
affecting the traffic of the street railways under the new
form of motive power. N ot only have these roads
changed their mode of traction, but the character of
their traffic has also in some measure been changed.
The trolley cars and the cable cars form a much pleas­
anter conveyance than the horse cars— they are cleaner
and healthier, and there are no offensive effluvia such
as are frequently connected with the horse car service.
Besides this, they furnish a much quicker means of
transit. During the summer months open cars are run,
and on the long lines into the suburbs, through an open
country, a trip at that time is really delightful. The
scenery is usually attractive, and the speed of the cars
produces a strong current which in the hot days is both
refreshing and invigorating. It has become the cus­
tom, therefore— at least in this part of the country— to
use the cars in the hot period for pleasure and recreaation. The fare as a rule is so low as to place this
means of enjoyment within the reach of the poorest.
There are no trolley lines on Manhattan Island (bar­
ring a small cross-town feeder to the Union Railway in
135th Street, and the Lenox Avenue Underground
Electric extending from 110 th Street to the Harlem
River), but in the annexed districts on the other side of
the Harlem River a great net-workof electric roads has
been created within the last two years, and these have
not only opened up the whole of that pretty section,
but have made it possible to ride from 129th Street
and Third Avenue to within a few blocks of Woodlawn
Cemetery, at the extreme northern limits of the city,
for five cents ; for five cents more one can go to Mount
V'ernon. To show bow low these rates are we need
only say that on the Harlem line of the New York Cen­
tral the fare from either 42d Street or 125th Street to
Woodlawn is 20 cents one way, and 35 cents for the
round trip. The fare over the trolley roads being so
cheap and the trip so delightful it was not uncommon
last summer, on the hot nights, to find persons
after dinner taking a ride back and forth on these
lines— it cost very little while the beneficial effects
were great. We may expect, too, that as the public
begin more fully to realize the advantages, travel of
that kind will become still more common. It is easy to
see, likewise, that such use of these roads might bo es­
pecially large in a period of busirn ss depression. The hard
times would keep a great many persons from taking
their customary vacation, and being kept at homo it
would be natural for them to use this inexpensive way
of getting relaxation and fresn air. What is true of
New York is also truo of other cities. In Brooklyn
last summer the cars over the lines running through
the “ county towns ” could have been seen any .Sat­
urday or Sunday afternoon carrying full loads in both
directions.
These observations are valuable chiefly as aids to tho
future. As far as tho past is concerned, we givo in tho

article which follows some decidedly interesting statis­
tics regarding street railway traffic in the city of St.
Louis.

T H E ST. L O U I S S T R E E T ROADS.
In the preceding article we have discussed in a general
way, but at length, the subject of the stability of street
railway traffic, and have pointed out some of the new
factors which enter into the question now th at horse cars
have been so largely superseded by electric and cable
roads. In the present article we propose to review the
course of the traffic of the street railways of St. Louis as
revealed bv statistics drawn from official sources. St.
Louis has long been considered one of the best equipped
cities in the way of street roads in the country. A
recent statement showed no less than 271 miles of such
road in that city, of which 215 miles were electric
lines, 44 miles cable roads and 12 miles horse roads,
there being only 2 horse car lines left in the city.
A feature of the history of the street system of St.
Louis is that several cable roads which failed to give
satisfaction have been converted into electric roads ; in
fact even of the 44 miles of cable lines still left 9 miles
are in process of being changed to electric. A very
liberal policy has always been pursued in the manage­
ment of the roads, and it is claimed that the city has
more miles of electric road than any other city in the
world. The fare is five cents on all the lines, and
recent combinations and consolidations have resulted
in a quite general adoption of
the
transfer
system, so that (to quote from a paper by William
H. Bryan, M. E ) , “ it is now possible to board
a car at Calvary Cemetery, in the extreme north­
western portion of the city, and ride with but one
change of cars to Carondelet— a distance of some thir­
teen miles— for a single fare.” These various facts
give great interest and importance to the record of the
traffic of these roads which we furnish in the follow­
ing for the period since 1883. The figures cover cal­
endar years.

....................... 95,201,770

This statement brings out several very striking
facts. The wonderful growth which has occurred in
the traffic, more particularly since the extension of
the electric system, is of course the fact of foremost
importance. Since 1886, when 47,154,098 passengers
were carried, the number has increated over 100 per
cent, the aggregate for 1894 boiDg 95,201,770. In
this tho experience of St. Louis has been like that of
other places where electricity has been introduced as
motive power— traffic has increased enormously as the
result. Referring to this increase Mr. William II.
Bryan says it has not always been easy to account for
the improvement. Competing lines suffer to somo ex­
tent, but their losses do not account for all the gain.
Thero is an increaso in the grand total of travel, duo
no doubt to the adoption o f better methods and moro
attractive surroundings.
Rapid transit, he r< marks,
shortens distances, thus bringing together tho resi­
dence and business districts, and building up outlying
areas previously inaccessible. In addition wo think
the facts sot out in tho previous article help to expluin
why the traffic has so greatly expanded.
But what will perhaps attract still more attention iB
tho comparatively small impression which the panic und
business prostration have left on tho movement. 'Faking

STREET

the two years 1893 and 1894, the total number of
passengers carried has changed scarcely at all, having
been 95,680,550 in 1893 and 95,201,770 in 1894— that
is, after having increased from 4l£ millions in 1885 to
95f millions in 1893 the total in 1894 dropped off less
than half a million. W e are not to suppose from this
comparison that the industrial depression has not been
felt by these street railways. Doubtless except for the
bad times there would have been a further decided
increase, the same as in all the years preceding; prac­
tically therefore the depression in business had the
effect of preventing further growth for the time being
instead of occasioning a marked falling off.
Doubtless it should be mentioned, however, that St.
Louis is supposed to have suffered less from the de­
pression in trade than almost any other large city. A t
least that is the impression the current reports regard­
ing the condition of business at that centre have given,
and certainly if bank clearings are a measure of the
relative activity of trade the reports are not open to
question. These bank clearings aggregated 1,128 milion dollars in the calendar year 1894, against 1,139
million dollars in 1893 and 1,231 million dollars in
1892, showing a remarkably email falling o f — for the
two years not quite 9 per cent.
We may contrast this
with the result at Chicago, where the aggregate was
4,315 million dollars in 1894, 4,677 million dollars in
1893, and 5,136 million dollars in 1892, or with the
result at N ew York, where the total was 24,388 millions
against 31,261 and 36,662 millions respectively ; that
is, while at N ew Y o rk clearings fell off fu lly one-third
as compared with 1892 and at Chicago 16 per cent,
at St. Louis the decrease for the two years was less
than 9 per cent, and in the late year was hardly more
than nominal.
But while this apparently better state of business at
St. Louis is a consideration which should not be over­
looked as a factor affecting the stability of street rail­
way traffic at that point, nevertheless an analysis of the
movement during the late year shows that for a part o f
the time the unfavorable trade situation had a plainly
visible effect on the business of the roads. This will ap­
pear from the following statement, showing the traffic
by quarters:
1894.
Jan. 1 to March 31........... 20,953,831
April 1 to June 30.......... 24,773,660
July 1 to Sept. 30............ 24,745,396

Thus there was a decrease for the whole of the first
three quarters of the year, the aggregate falling off for
the nine months being nearly 2£ millions. But in the
last quarter of the year, when our industries began to
show signs of revival, I f millions of this loss was recov­
ered, leaving the decrease for the year, as already stated,
less than half a million. In the quick recovery which
occurred in the last quarter the experience of the roads
was much like that which they had in 1884-6. In
1884, it will be remembered, we had the Grant & Ward
panic, and in 1885 business was quite depressed until
the West Shore settlement in the latter half of the year.
The effect of the depression on the traffic of the St.
Louis street roads was, as will be seen by the second
table above, to reduce the number of passengers carried
from 42,805,877 in 1884 to 41,559,171 in 1885 ; but in
1886, business becoming active, the total rose to
47,154,098, and thereafter there was an increase in each
and every year until 1894. Altogether the history of
the St. Louis roads presents the record of street railway
traffic in a favorable light.

O TH E R STR E E T R A IL W A Y

W id ening U se

E lectric R oads.— It would

seem there is no end to the uses to which electric roads
may be put. Almost every month we hear of some
new way in which the electric lines— and particularly
the trolley lines— are to be applied. A t first they were
engaged simply in carrying passengers, and that still is
and probably for a long time will continue to be their
chief function. But latterly they have also in a great
many cases become carriers of the United States mails.
The contention arising out of the recent strike of the
employees of the electric roads in Brooklyn as to the
right of the Atlantic Avenue Company to carry U . S.
mail sigDS when the cars were not actually conveying
postal matter, is fresh in the minds of every one. The
St. Louis & Suburban Railway o f St. Louis claims the
distinction of being the first street railway in the
United States which was regularly used as a U . S.
mail route. The service has been in operation in that
city for about two and a-half years. According to a
recently published paper there is a fu ll equipment of
regularly furnished and specially-fitted mail cars,
which go over the entire route twice a day. The cars
run on a fixed schedule, and are due at definite times
at certain corners, where mail is delivered to car­
riers for distribution over the respective routes.
A t St. Louis, too, one of the roads— the South­
ern— operates an express service, by means of
specially - arranged
cars,
which
make
regular
trips over the entire line at stated intervals. Mr.
W illiam H . Bryan, in writing regarding this feature,
says that the company’s delivery wagons bring goods to
and deliver them from the uptown terminus. There
are also two stations along the line at which delivery
wagons take goods from the express cars and deliver
them throughout the territory adjacent. This service,
we are told, has proved profitable to the company and
satisfactory to its patrons. Still another quite novel
feature has been added in St. Louis, namely an electric
ambulance service. The city’s health department had
the ambulance built, and it is run over the lines of the
Union Depot system, and forms the principal convey­
ance between the city dispensary at the city hall and
the various hospitals.

E lectric R oads in the F reight Seryicb .— N ot
improbably we may in the near future see the street
railways in some of the cities engage quite extensively
in the business of carrying freight, and also some of
our steam roads use electricity as motive power in the
case of lines having only a light traffic. Indeed the
New Y o rk N ew Haven & H artford is understood to
have determined upon a change of this latter kind in
the case of several of its small branch lines. A begin­
ning is to be made on the Nantasket Beach branch of
the Old Colony division. I f the trial succeeds then
the experiment is to be extended to the other branches.
The Pennsylvania Railroad has also begun experiment­
ing, and will equip an eight-mile branch between Mount
Holly, N . J., and Burlington. As regards the employ­
ment of street railways in the freight service the St.
Louis roads, which have been the pioneers in so many
particulars, have not yet we believe attempted any
freight business. But as showing what the prevailing
tendency is we may mention that here in the East the
Massachusetts Street Railway Association has petitioned
the Legislature for the right to carry freight, merchan­
dise and express packages. The Springfield “ Republi-

STREET

RAILWAYS

can” thinks this move very suggestive, and commenting
on it says: “ It not only points to full-grown competition
on the part of the electric roads with the steam railroads,
butitwarns the people that they are granting privileges
and rights of way which mean more than appears on
the surface.
I t is evident that the electric lines
between cities and towns are preparing to haul freight
as well as passengers, and this must mean that the
days of sending out a single car for passengers at stated
intervals will not always obtain. It is altogether likely
that some of us will live to see trains of electric cars
operated very much as trains are now run on the steam
roads, with an increasing disposition to hasten the speed
of cars, especially on the long rural stretches of track.”
How far this use of the streets for express and freight
business would interfere with the use by the public
both of the streets and of the cars it is not necessary to
discuss here. It would seem as if the development of
that kind of street railway traffic was only possible
within narrow limits and in sparsely settled districts.
Cost of O perati ng Street R a i l w a y s .— One of
the problems which it remains for the future to solve is
as to what it is going to cost permanently to operate
street railways under the new system of traction. On
that point hinges the measure of profitableness
of the recent investments in this form of property.
Originally the general opinion was that the introduc­
tion of electricity and cables, and particularly the
former, meant a very great saving in the cost of operat­
ing the lines. Already views are being modified. A t
first, when track and equipment were new, and there
was consequently little need of repairs, it seemed as if
the prospect of a very low operating cost would be real­
ized. But now we are beginning to hear a great deal
about the effects of the pounding of the cars on the
track, the frequency with which cars must be repaired,
and like complaints. One president is quoted as say­
ing : “ We are now beginning to find out what
it really
costs
to operate a road.
For the
first
few
years
things
moved
on
smoothly
and without any interruption, as we built everything

7

substantially and used the best of material. On a new
road repairs are few and almost insignificant, but a
change has come. The repair shop must be enlarged
and more men engaged to renew worn-out or fractured
parts, and as the months go by the amount of disabled
machinery increases. There is no let-up, or if there is
it is of short duration, and then the percentage becomes
greater. Rapid transit is indeed an appropriate name;
for the transition from new machinery to ma'erial con­
demned to the scrap heap is rapid. How can it be
otherwise? Heavy bodies moving quickly and almost
continuously are bound to give way soon. Candidly, I
figured on fair losses by friction from the start, but I
can truthfully say I am not prepared for the actual re­
sults that now stare me in the face.” Another presi­
dent gave some facts to show the increase in cost. He
says that for the first three years (these are Western
roads whose experience is being told) the average of the
motor cars in the repair shops was 8 per cent of the
whole number, but for the year 1894 the average was
14 per cent. Repairs on track the first three years
were 3 cents per foot per year. In 1894 the cost to
keep the tracks in repair amounted to 7^ cents per foot.
This President well says that in view of the large main­
tenance and repair account, the roads must have a
great increase in traffic right along. He also thinks
that as a rule the companies have built too many miles
of road, have too many cars, too heavy cars, and run
too fast and too often, give too many transfers, and
carry people too long a distance for a nickel. Speak­
ing on the same subject a general manager of one of
the lines said that when the change from horses to
electricity was made, it was calculated that the cars
would be able to stand from fifteen to twenty years of
service. From the present appearance of the “ palaces
on wheels ” he thought the companies would be satis­
fied if they were able to keep them on the track for ten
years. These may be extreme cases and extreme views,
but they suggest that the question of what the actual
cost of operating the new roads is to be is yet an open
one, and that the experience of the next few years in
that regard will merit close study.

SECURITIES AND

REPORTS.

This is the third of our series of Supplements. In using the series it is to be remembered that they are inter-dependent
publications, complete only as a whole. I f utilized together, and with the fresh items of news the C h r o n ic l e contains from
week to week, the investor will have all the information he needs in seeking a safe and remunerative lodgment for his money.
Street Railways forcibly illustrate this inter-dependence. Such roads obviously rely for their income, and therefore in
great part for the value of their securities, upon the population and wealth of the country they serve. Hence constant
reference to our S t a t e a n d C i t y S u p p l e m e n t will be found necessary by those wishing to purchase the stocks and bonds of
street roads. Population, assessed valuation, tax rate, total debts of the counties, cities and minor municipalities are given at
length in that publication, every one of which items is an essential fact contributing more or less to any correct estimate o f
the amount of suburban travel a given road commands.
The A b b r e v i a t i o n s used in our Street Railway statements w ill be found explained in a table immediately following the
last statement in this Supplement.
A fu ll I n d e x which shows where each railroad w ill be found is also given on the closing pages.

O rganization—
The officials state that “ in the early part of 1894
the company suffered from a fire, losing all its cars, barn, office
and many tools, etc. The amount of insurance was collected and used
to pay the notes of the company, leaving it without any equipment
The bondholders took the property in charge, have put it in shape,
equipped it, and commenced running on the old line Sept. 24, 1894, in
order to get the road started.
“ They built an extension of about l ^ miles, which is just completed
[Jan. 1, 1895], so the showing of earnings and expenses is not a fair
estimate fo r the future.
“ The bonded debt has been increased from $60,000 to $100,000. A ll
bonds bearing 6 per cent interest have been surrendered and tho new
ones bearing 5 per cent given in exchange.”

Bonds o f 1891—In November, 1893, the company proposed to its
bondholders to scale the coupons due in 1894 and 1895 from 6 per cent
to 3 per cent per annum, and for subsequent years to 5 per cent; also
to defer the sinking fund clause o f the m ortgage so as to make it begin
in 1901 instead of 1895, and to reduce the authorized lim it of the m ort­
gage from $2,500,000 to $2,250,000, including $225,000 held by trus­
tee to retire Atlanta Street Railroad bonds. In consideration of the
bondholders assenting the stockholders agreed to pay off the floating
debt, aggregating some $300,000, and to take on account o f said pay­
ment certain treasury bonds at an agreed price and income bonds for
the remainder. Practically all the bonds have come into the arrange­
ment.
The sinking fu n d begins July 1, 1901, and must retire the bonds of
1891 at 106 and interest, when drawn by lot, at the follow in g ra te :
July 1, 1901, to July 1, 1906, twenty bonds yearly; July 1, 1906. to
July 1, 1911, thirty bonds yearly; July 1, 1911, to July 1, 1916, fo rty
bonds yearly; July 1,1916, to July 1, 1921, fifty bonds yearly.

miles. Franchises granted by State and city expire Nov. 13,1939, and
give rights to all principal streets. An incandescent light plant was
also to be established.
On Jan. 13,1895, tbe company found it impossible to promptly meet
its coupons then maturing, and therefore made the following statement
to the bondholders:
“ Eenewals of electric equipment have been absolutely necessary to
maintain the roa1 in good physical condition, and such improvements
have been carefully but substantially made. City ordinances have
compelled the railway company to lay several miles of stone and brick
pavements between its tracks, despite its protests against being ealled
on for suck heavy disbursements during the hard times. Its railway
system and plant are very valuable, controlling all the great business
arteries of the city and extending most complete facilities for t r a v e l;
but when general and local conditions prevail which result in a heavy
shrinkage of receipts, the co mpany is po werless to maintain its revenue,
and can meet its greatly reduced income only by decreasing its ex­
penditures for operation and “ fixed charges. ’ Ti?e management is
practical, economical and keeps expenses at the minimum; under the
circumstances it can further its efforts fo r the good of the property in
which you are vitally interested only by plainly showing the necessity
for a reduction of the requirement for interest if operation of the road
shall continue during the period of depression.
“ I f by voluntary action on the part of the bondholders the coupons
falling due Jan. 1, 1895, and thereafter, until conditions are more
favorable and receipts increase proportionately, can be taken up by
the railway company on the basis of 3 per cent per annum, the manage­
ment believes operation can continue successfully.”
The bondholders were accordingly asked to sanction such arrange­
ment.

Bonds.—The consolidated mortgage of 1891 is for $3,000,000, of
which balance unissued is reserved for prior liens. The improvement
mortgage (limited to $1,500,000) was issued in 1893. See V. 56, p. 735.
Both these mortgages cover the double-track steam railroad leased to
the L. I. RR. Co. as well as the road owned and operated. Loans and
bills payable (on Sept. 30,1891) were $101,999, against $130,735 June
30, 1891.

company’ s earnings and reduced its percentage of operating expenses.
For six months only of the fiscal year 1893-94 was the entire system
operated by electricity. The gain in earnings, however, for this year
was 14 per cent over the previous year, when for nine months the entire
system was worked with horses.

ORGANIZATION—
Chartered August 6, 1870. Parties identified with
the Omaha & South Texas Land Company are largely interested in its
management, Mr. O. M. Carter, its President, being also president of
the land company.
In the spring of 1894 the follow ing were appointed a bondholders'
com m ittee: J. Fred Rogers, 149Congress St., Boston; A lb ertN . Parlin,
34 Union St., B oston; George E. Smith, Sears’ Building, B oston; H enry
Allison, Fitchburg, Mass.; John D. Miller, W allingford, Vt.
A t a m eeting o f the holders of the 6 per cent bonds held February 13r
1895, at which over $600,000 bonds w ere represented, it was voted
unanimously, in view of the floating debt statement shown below and
the representations made by the company’s President, “ that it would
be inexpedient and injurious to their permanent interests to pay
March, 1895, coupons.” They recommended that the payment be
deferred. They also voted unanimously “ that it was inexpedient for
the bondholders themselves through their officers or agents to take the
possession and management of the property into their own hands.”

O rganization—The entire capital stock of this company ($1,000,000)
is owned by a New Jersey corporation of the same name, which in turn
js controlled by the “ North American Co.” (See Miscellaneous Com­
panies in I nvestors’ Supp.) The Wisconsin Company owns the entire
street railway system of the city, and also owns and operates electricjiglit and power works under franchises said to be exclusive. It has a
contract for furnishing street lights which rans till November, 1895.
Entire enterprise was completed May 1,1893. Furnishes nearly 20,000
ncandescent lights.
Owing to the business depression the company was unable to meet
its accruing charges, and therefore funded coupons duo Dec. 1, 1893,
to Dec. 1, 1894, on the first consolidated bonds. Interest on the under­
lying bonds has been paid regularly.

Preferred Cumulative Stock—In order to provide for the floating in­
debtedness (including the six per cent certificates) of about $2,600,000
of the Twin City Rapid Transit Company, which is secured by a pledge
of the stock of the constituent companies, including the Minneapolis
Street Railway Company and the St. Paul City Railway Company, and
to place the finances of the company on a safe and permanent footing,
the Board of Directors have resolved to create au issue of $3,000,000
of seven per cent cumulative preferred stock, aud offer at the present
time $1,500,000 of this stock for subscription at par.—V. 60, p. 303.
Bonds.—The Minneapolis Street Railway Co. jointly and severally
with the Minneapolis Lyndale & Minnetonka Railway Co. has issued
$5,000,000 (which includes $970,000 held in trust by the Farmers’ Loan
&Trust Company to redeem the $970,000 prior lien bonds), 5 per cent 30year first mortgage aud first consolidated mortgage gold bonds.
The St. Paul City Railway Company has issued $4,280,000 5 per cent
50-year cable consolidated bonds (including $680,000 held by the
Farmers’ Loan < Trust Company, trustee, to redeem the $680,000 prior
fc
lien bonds above) under a mortgage limited to $5,500,000. Under
he mortgage these bonds can only be issued against the actual cash
cost of construction, under a mileage limit of $15,000 per mile. Part
of these consols ($1,120,000 on Dec. 31,1893) are guaranteed, principal
and Interest, by endorsement of Twin City R. T. Co.
The Minneapolis Street Railway aud St. Paul City Railway have
each issued to Twin City Rapid Transit 6 per cent certificates of
indebtedness (of 1893) for $1,000,000, total, $2,000,000, whose re-pay­
ment covers three years from January 1, 1894. These certificates
(notes) are guaranteed by the Twin City R. T. Co.
Road—The entire system now consists of 225 miles of standard-gauge
road, of which 219 miles is electric aud 6 miles cable, all of which has
been recently built or rebuilt, aud thoroughly equipped. A double-track
electric line, 9 miles long, connects the business centres of the two
cities.
G eneral F inances —The fixed charges for the past year, including
interest on floating debt, injuries and damages, taxes, insurance aud
contingent account, amounted to $393,477. The sale of $2,600,000 7
per cent preferred stock will pay off all indebtedness of every descrip­
tion, except $10,298,000 of bonds on the properties of the Minneapolis
Street Railway Company and the St. Paul City Railway Company.
Estimating the interest on the preferred stock as a fixed charge, aud
considering the reduction in injuries and damages, the future total
fixed charges will exceed very little, if any, those of the past year.

Stock —In December, 1894, only $30 per $50 share had been paid on
the outstanding $1,000,000 of stock. The stockholders, besides being
liable for the remaining $20 per share, are liable under the provisions
of the charter for an amount equal to their share holdings.
D ividen ds—From 1868 to 1894, inclusive, regular dividends were
paid, the rate in 1894 being 8 per cent per annum.
Earnings —For nine years ending June 30, 1891, earnings were :
1894..
1891.... $415,852
1888.... $329,619
1893..... 420,261
1890.... 399,493

1892..... 438,748
1889.... 349,435
1886 ... 273,967
* Competing roads changing to cable or electricity caused the reduc­
tion in receipts hero shown.
For year ending June 30, 1894, passenger earnings were $348,512;
other income, $7,082 ; total, $355,594. Operating expenses, including
taxes, insurance, etc., $308,944; electrical equipment and bridge,
$56,843 ; interest, $23,699 ; dividends, 58, 600.
During the year the eompany negotiated bills payable for $35,000
and retired $15,000 ; received for bonds and premiums, $26,350; bal­
ance on hand June 30,1894, $12,128.
E s t im a t e s — Estimating no increase in gross earnings, and taking 60
per cent as the cost of operating expenses—50 per cent being possible,
the result will show a net annual average profit of $141,398 56, or
nearly $50,000 in oxcess of the interest upon the first mortgage bonds
of the road. A conservative estimate of the probable increase in
gross earnings, based upon the usual experience of 50 per cent, w ill
show the ability of the road to earn the interest upon the first mort­
gage bonds, 10 per cent dividend upon the capital stock, and leave a
balance of about $20,000 applicable to the sinking fund.

The terms and abbreviations employed in this S u p p l e m e n t are explained in the following :
u STOCK < c BONDS n—Under tliese words are shown—
S
i( S T OCK ” —The amount o f stock authorized im m ediately follows the word “ stock,” and against this is the par value of single shares, viz.,
“ Stock, $200,000—$100,” means stock, total issue authorized hy charter or by act of legislature, $200,000, divided into shares of $100 each ;
“ f. p.” follow ing the amount given as outstanding means “ fu ll paid.”
“ Pref.” means “ preferred stock.” “ Pref. 6 p. c . cum.” means preferred stock entitled to dividends of 6 per cent per annum, such dividends
if not paid accumulating, all dividends due and unpaid to be paid in full for each and every year before the common stock receives anything.
“ Pref. 6 p. c. 7 u m - c u m . ” means simply that the stock is entitled to 6 per cent per annum if earned, but that if unearned in any year the dividend
for that year w ill not be paid subsequently.
u BONDS ” —“ Mort.” or “ M.” means mortgage. “ Consol.” or “ con. M.” means consolidated mortgage. “ Gen. M.” means general mort"
gage. The amount next follow ing is the total authorized amount that can be issued under the mortgage. The word “ g o ld ” is usually spelled
out, but in some instances is contracted to “ g,” w hile “ cur.” means currency.
“ Conv.” means convertible into stock. “ S. f.” means sinking fund, “ c.” means coupon; “ c .*” means coupon but m ay be registered as
to principal; and “ c.*<fer.” means that registered certificates w ithout coupons as w ell as coupon bonds are outstanding. The letters “ p. m /
mean per mile, so $15,000 p. m. means that the issue of bonds is restricted to $15,000 for each m ile of track. “ Guar.” means guaranteed, and
“ guar. p. & i. (end.) ” means guaranteed as to principal and interest, the guaranty being endorsed on each bond.
“ DATE

The date of issue on the face of the bonds is indicated under the w ord “ date.”

and Ju ly; correspondingly, “ F - A ” is used to mean February and August; “ M - S ” means March and September, and so on, while “ Q - J ”
means quarterly beginning in January and “ Q - F ” quarterly beginning in February. [The day when the interest payment is due can
