Few people have any idea of the immense -
mense expense to which railroads are
put continually. Besides having an immense
mense expense for the daily operation
of the roads a large sum of money is invested -
vested in rolling stock. The official railway -
way equipment guide , issued the first of
the year , gives the following estimate of
the rolling stock of roads running into
Lincoln : Burlington & Missouri River
in Nebraska , 329 locomotives ; 8,922
freight cars ; 273 passenger cars ; 15 this-
cellaiieous cars ; total , 9,210 This , of
course , does not include any of the stock
of the Q. system proper. The Rock
Island has 561 locomotives ; 16,630 freight
cars ; 457 passenger ; 2 miscellaneous ;
total , 17,089. The Fremont , Elkhorn &
Missouri Valley road has lot engines ;
4,269 freightcars ; 78 passenger ; 83 miscellaneous -
cellaneous ; total , 4,430. The Missouri
Pacific boasts of 64L engines ; 21,915
freight cars ; 523 passenger ; total , 22,438.
The Union Pacific has 705 engines ; 1,469
freight cars : 543 Passenger ; /57 miscel-
lat > eous ; total , 17,469. The mileage of
the different roads is given at : Union
Pacific , 4,442 ; Missouri Pacific , 5,371 ;
Elkhorn , 1,490 ; Rock Island , 3,574 ; the
Q. system proper , 2,175 ; Burlington ,
It is Estimated
That there are at present 300 Europeans -
ropeans , inclusive of missionaries , in
French Congo , 150 iii British east Africa ,
350 in British central Africa , 250 in German -
man east Africa , aucl 1,400 in Belgian
Congo-altogether , say 2,500 Europeans
between the Zambesi and the Nile. The
railways about to be constructed in
British east and central Africa and the
German possessions will be the u.eaus
of attracting several hundred more , just
as the Congo railway has been the cause
of the greater European population in
the Congo state , and since roadless Africa -
rica during the last tenyears has attract-
ed so many whites , it needs no prophet
to predict that where one white traveled
during its p'nmihve state , a hmtdted
will travel by railway. There are now
only about 130 miles of railway within
the limit ofEquatorial Africa ; but at the
end of ten years from now we shall have
the Congo railway 250 miles long ; the
Stanley Falls railway thirty miles ; the
Mombasa-Nyanza railway , 66o miles ; the
Shire-Nyassa railway , seventy miles ;
the German Usambara railway , 120
miles ; aucl probably the Nvassa-Tangan-
yika railway , 220 miles , in complete
