Mr. Baynes points tx what the American
Bison society and its friends have already
accomplished and believes that much will
be done. The government has accepted a
herd of twelve buffalo and will put them
on an area of fifteen square miles set apart
on the Wichita reservation. There they will
be taken this year after calving time. They
are expected to return to their .wild habits
and to thrive, with little care. Without
mischance they will Increase rapidly, tha
scientists believe. This is the type of
colonisation which the society aims for.
Its Intention Is to secure the planting of
similar herds on various government and
state lands. The aiHmals tn theae colonies
arc to be virtually at liberty within a large
fenced area and to be left to find their own
food as far as possible. By this means It is
hoped to Insure the perpetuation of living
examples of the one mighty animal.

Commenting On tue facia revealed by the
investigation of the Interstate Commerce
commission Into tho railroads controlled
by B. H. Harriman. the Wail Street Jour
nal haa this to say:.
B. H. Harriman is after a transconti
nental railroad. If not two of them. Ths
meaning of tho financial operations of ths
Union Pacific, as revealed by ths Inter
state Commerce commission, la as clear as
the Imprint of tha hand. -
It la now public knowledge that B. H.
Harriman has advised his board of direc
tors that the Union Pacific should buy
control of ths Illinois Central. That be
meana to have control of the Baltimore A
Ohio and that tho St. Joseph A Grand
Island, which ha has also bought. Is to
help furnish the connecting link between
this and the Union Pacific, there Is equally
Tha union of the New York Central, the
Chicago A Northwestern and the Union
Pacific to make a transcontinental line be
tween New York and Ban Francisco Is a
project which datea from time Immemorial.
Whether ths purchase of Chicago A North
western stock and New York Central stock
by the Union Pacific la the first step In
securing control of these two roads Is a
riddle which everybody is entitled to guess
at Associates cf E. H. Harriman said
recently that the ownership of the Union
Pacific In theae two roads was of no ul
terior algnlfleance and that the purchase
was merely a complimentary Investment' by
a railroad which has surplus funds to In'
On June SS last the Union Pacific had
(3.000,000 in caah assets, (21,000,000 of this
being In tha. form of cash on hand and
t34.00O.00S In ' the form of demand loan
Since then it has received about $55,000,000
cash from tho sale of Hill stocks. It has
also received, probably, (10,000,000 surplus
from operations during the last six months

The Union Pacific s cash today Is low,
It haa not more than C 000,000 or $10,000,000
on band. This would leave slightly less
than S100.000.0u0 available during the Ust
six months tor the purchase of securities.
Yet the Union Pacific, according to ths
statements given out Friday, must have
expended not leas than 113.000,000 since
June SO In securing other stocks.
The stocks purchased since laat Juns are
tabulated below and a conservative aati-
S, 272. 6li0
Wheels Wlthla Wheels.
The. Railroad Securities stock represents
control of about HT.O0O.00O market value
of Illinois Central stock. Tho table' shows
196,000 shares of Illinois Central held di
rectly by ths Union Pacific, but ths real
amount Is somewhat below this. Directly
and through ths Railroad Securities com
pany the Union Pacific has control of 128.-
121.100 Illinois Central stock.
It Is doubtful if ths Nsw York Central
stock wss bought for 11M per share. But
It is safe to say that In all ths Union Pa
clflo has spent from $115,000,000 to $120,000,030
for Railroad Securities since Juns to last.
It Is estimated above that control of
Railroad Securities company was bought
for $5,000,000. Perhaps ths real figure Is
above -this. Ths Railroad Securities com
pany has $3,000,000 par value common stock.
$2,000,000 preferred stock and $S. 000,00) bonds
outstanding, or $12,600,000 par value securi
ties In all. ' i
The Important question resulting from
the foregoing Is, why did Mr. Harriman,
on behalf of the Union Pacific, contract
lo buy more stocks than the Union Pacific
could pay for at ths time the stocks were
bought? Perhaps the answer' Is contained
In the fact that the Union Pacific today
has about $30,000,000 Hill stocks which may
be disposed of and the disposal of which
It appears would Just about square the In
vestment business of the Union Pacific up.
The fact that these stocks were purchased
by the Union Pacific has been published
during the past few months exclusively by
the Wall Street Journal the one exception
being the St. Joseph A Grand Island.
B. H. Harriman has Imperial ambitions.
There Is no doubt that he has had the ad
vice of eminent counsel In all his opera
tion. Whether there Is any conflict of
opinion between this advice and ths opin
ion of the Interstate Commerce commis
sion remains to be seen.
