May Help Railroad But Will Be
Rough on Owners of Securities
From the Minneapolis Journal
The Milwaukee road, once one of the soundest and most pro
fitable railroads of the west, now finds it necessary to effect a
complete financial reorganization by means of a receivership.
Out of this process will eventually issue a new Milwaukee,
shorn of a mountain of obligations, and ready to engage in rail
roading on a sound and businesslike basis. But that will mean
losses to the scattered holders of its securities. It is they who will
pay for the rejuvenation of the Milwaukee.
They have been somewhat prepared for this overturn by the
steady decline in the quotations of their securities, as the day ap
proached when forty-five million dollars had to be found some
where, and nowhere to find it. But these losses of capital invested
in supposedly sound securities mean many individual hurts.
It is explained that the Milwaukee has had a long run of bad
luck, beginning with the transcontinental extension and aggravat
ed by the war and government mismanagement. But other well
managed railroad properties have weathered the war and govern
ment operation successfully and are now on the upgrade to steady
So it comes back, for the Milwaukee, to the 2,000-mile trans
continental extension. That was badly planned and badly exe
cuted. It ought to have tapped new and unserved territory as far •
as possible. Instead its projectors chose to parallel existing lines
for hundreds of miles. At the western end they might have opened
a new route through Central Oregon, w'here there were no rail
roads and where the country is susceptible of rich development,
just as James J. Hill developed the new territory through which
he built the Great Northern coast extension. But instead a com
peting line was built, which had to share traffic with established
lines, and which runs through much territory that is not productive
and probably never will be.
Nor was the financing of the extension soundly managed. The
work wras expensively done and these costs, of course, w'erc trans
lated into securities on which charges had to be earned. t
Now' there is nothing for it but the heroic expedient of a re
ceivership. The treatment is painful for the security holders, but
it will effect a cure for the road.
It is a rare conscience that will
come out of hiding and bark fur
iously when there is a profit in sight.

A SPECIAL PLEA
By Jean O'Brien.
Give me the sun, and sometimes,
Give me the moon, and snow;
Give me a friend to show me Love,
And give me then—a foe.
Give me desire unsatisfied.
And sometimes—full delight;
Give me still watches in the dark,
And then—deep sleep—at night.
Give me not too much sweetness,
lest I know satiety; .
Give me—all things that make a

Were these same structures sur«
rounded by the California line they
would be pounced upon by greedy
operators who are willing to pay
$100 an acre for lands with half as
good prospects, within the present
confines of California.
And they shall be accounted poet
Who simply tell the most heart
Is there anyone who sings
In our day heart-easing things?
Such, the Graces and the Hours
Bringing simple fruits and flowers
Down a bowery aisle of treee,
As in some old dancing frieze.
Would such delicacies please?
No! Our tastes ask subtleties;
In the wholesome meadow bloom.
Poison find, with rank'perfume;
Know that greenwood shades conceal
111, not crushed by .woman's heel!
Innocence?—tihe mask for Guilt,
Plunge the dagger to the hilt!
Let the altar wine be spilt—
All old shrines be now unbuilt!
Listen not, if any cry
"Comfort me!” Let that go by;
No heart-easing thing they tell
Who Today’s harsh chorus swell.
Faith—or legend—they ar* one;
Know you not that tihey are done?
Satyr's hoofs alone are seen,
Footprints round Pleria’s green.
Where the roses used to grow
(So 'twas said—but who may know?)!
Io! to their tramping rout—
To Prlapus, also, shout!
Now -the Art of Song must be.
As the theme, unchained and Free;
Heap up monstrous words, Instead
Of pure Sense with Muslo wed.
Oh, heart-easing things, once said.
Long and long ago are fled . . .
Poet-kings, then laurel-crowned.
From their laurel! guarded ground
Will not rise to bid you Nay!
Though you Rhyme and Reason flay,
Safely you shall hold your way—
Io! Bards of our Today!
