"The Burlington should earn JSO.0no.000
thla year." I
Thla statement comes from Wall street.
It Is causing great Interest among men
who watch the financial side of great rail
roads and especially those men who watch
the financial side of the great railroads
most vitally affected by' the present re
forms In state and national legislation.
Because of Its source the statement Is pub
lished by the Wall Btreet Journal this
statement Is given the utmost credence and
therefore Is receiving consideration.
"It looks as If Mr. Hill would not have to
go through bankruptcy after all, notwith
standing the fact that his road will have
to pay Its measly little taxes In the cities
and towns of Nebraska if the terminal
tax law becomes effective," said a business
than. "I think It la a good thing to publish
everything that can be obtained Just now
on these finances, for the public will be
Interested In knowing that what It la doing
is not breaking any big corporation."
The earnings of the Chicago, Burlington
Qulncy are said to be having a larger
expansion than any of the roads of the
middle Granger group, says the Journal.
While the other Hill roada, the Northern
Pacific and the Great Northern, under ad
verse weather condition have been losing
considerably In gross earnings, the Burling
ton has been forging steadily ahead.
The earnings in January in spite of ad
verse weather conditions were very satis
factory, and February earnings showed an
Increase of nearly IROO.000 and March will
be another good month.
Eighty Millions r More.
To date the gross earnings have Increaaed
more than J4.000.000 over those of a year
ago a remarkable showing In view of the
fact that gross earnings in 1904 increased no
less than 18,000.000. According to all pres
ent Indications, the gross earnings of the
Burlington for the present fiscal year
should be at least 180.000,000, if not more.
The Burlington has been having a great
deal to contend with on the labor situation
and thla together with rapidly advancing
costs of materials, etc., has militated
against net earnings. The operation of
the Burlington road his year will be more
costly than ever before.
The net earnings of the Burlington, how
ever, are very deceptive. The following
table will show what has happened In this
respect since the Hill people took control
of the road:
Net P. C
Earnings. Increase. Inc.
Bat It Is Not So.
One might think from the foregoing fig
ures that the Burlington hns not been doing
very well. Last year It appears that the
net earnings showed a .material decrease
and were, In fact, less than they were four
years ago. Tet the gross business of the
road has expanded enormously, as the fol
lowing figures clearly showl

It appears that gross earnings last year
'ncre.ased $8,000,000, and while but a small
Increase was shown In 1906, 1904 showed a
largo Increase, and the earnings of 1903
again showed an Increase of -nearly $9,000,
000. - In view of this tremendous expansion
in gross earnings since 1901, vis: nearly
120,000,000, the bare increase in net, amount
ing to less .than $7,000,000, ts quite prepos
terous. The trouble lies wholly In maintenance
outlays, which have Increased tremendously
under the Hill rule, as the following table
Malatenaare la Liberal.
In connection with the foregoing figures
It should be borne In mind that the Bur
lington maintenance In 1901 was very 11b
etaL That was the year when J. J. Hill
bought the property, and in that year It
did but little more than earn enough to
pay the Interest on the joint 4 per cent
bonds, but Mr. Hill of course recognised In
a minute that them was a big earning
power concealed in operating expenses
so raw thing which he saw, but which few
oUiera saw. The following table ahows In
a nutshell what has happened In the Bur
lington development since 1901:
1908. 19(9. .
Gross earnings $74.14ti,70 $60,oM.9K8 48
Cond. transportation. 22.354,706 16,179.611 38
Maintenance outlays.. t4.K2.tT3 M,770,iO SS
While gross - earnings have Increased
nearly 60 per cent, conducting transporta
tion costs have Increased only M per cent,
which is a fair Indication of the econo
mies effected by the operating department
of the Burlington. But maintenance ex
penses have Increased nearly 70 per cent,
arvt here It where the money haa gone.
Last year the Burlington reported a sur
plus overcharges of nearly giS.000.ono. It
might have been tX.OOO.OOO with due regard
to the preservation of the property Just as
well as not In view of the big development
In gross earnings this year there la no
reason why It could not be fn.ooo.ooo or
$22,000,000 If so much work properly charge
able to capital account were not charged to
The growth of the Burlington, its present
sound financial and physical condition,
makes the day when the Northern Pac Int
end the Great Northern will receive some
recompense not far distant.
Oil Most Emcelleat Fael.
"We have one engine on the northwest
lines equipped for burning oil," said Gen
eral Manager Walters of the Northwest
ern, "and It is proving Immensely success
ful. The oil used was picked out of the
ditches from aeeplngs from wells already
sunk eight miles north of Lander. It is
most excellent for fuel purposes, and we
now want fo arrange to get enough of this
oil to Juatify us In equipping more locomo
tives." The success of these experiments should
be a great boost to the oil Industries In
Wyoming, for several wells have been sunk
which showed a good quality, and the
principal difficulty was they were teo far
from the markets, but with the roads using
oil In their locomotives, the Industry should
prosper. A large amount of lignite coal
also la mined In that section of Wyoming,
but it contains too large a percentage of
water to be available for use lrTvlocomo
tlves, and the oil seems to be the solution
of the problem."
Mr. Walters says he has' notified the
people of Lander of the success of the
experiments and he looks for a boom In
the oil business. It can be secured cheaply
and In large quantities.
The trials given by the Northwestern
probably will be an Incentive to the other
roads to take up the oil burners and thus
another market will be found for another
of the products of Wyoming.
Bla- Travel to Jamestowa.
General Northern Agent Splnlng of the
Big Four road In Chicago makes the as
sertion that In his opinion, at least 75 per
cent as many people will go from the ter
ritory east of the Mississippi river to
tha Jamestown exposition as visited the
St. Louis fair from the same district. This
assertion Is based upon inquiries and special
party business that is now being planned
and contracted for. Arrangements are
being made for the movement of organi
sations and orders to the number of 1,000
passengers to go from this city alone dur
ing May. This will be special train busi
ness and will have nothing to do with the
regular travel. '

Rev. W. L. Tenney, who haa under con

Dr. Tenney spent Thursday as the guest
of prominent church friends and drove
about the city during the forenoon, with
Dr. A. B. 8omera of the Congregational
ohurch board. He has not yet determined
upon an acceptance of the call to the
Omaha church, neither has he done so re
garding the ealla extended him by the Oak
Park church, Chicago, and Sioux City. He
will go to Sioux City Friday and will preach
there Sunday. A closa friend of Dr. Ten
ney said Thursday morning:
"I do not think Dr Tenney has yet made
up his mind relative to any of the calls
extended him. though we sincerely hope to
secure him for Omaha. He probably will
pot make known his determination for- a

Mayor Hay Carry fa matt

Mayor Dahlman Thursday morning said
he had no thought of rescinding his dog-
muixllng proclamation of Wednesday, pro-
testsof Dr. George L. Miller and others,
Beginning April 6, my orders will be
enforced and those having tinmuasled dogs
at large may expect to have them killed.
If conditions warrant It I may extend the
limit when the ninety days have expired,
but that will depend on the state of affairs
at that time," the mayor said.
Ths mayor contends he has the authority
under the law to promulgate such an In
novation as this, while certain other people
take sn opposite view and the probability
Is these other people may prove to be
from Mlssiourl before the muxsles are
placed over the noses of the dogs-or In
other words, the mayor probably will have
a chance of proving In court that his ad
visers are on solid ground.
Disclaim. Sinister Influence.
Regarding an Intimation that persons
wishing to stimulate the dog musxle mar
ket had unduly Influenced htm In deciding
to Issue the proclamation, the mayor de
clared that no one had approached him
with this motive. The mayor affirmed
he acted for what he believed the beat In
terests of the city when he Issued the
proclamation. He said numerous cltlxens
had called on him In person and over the
telephone, urging him to take some action
and the city council even passed an
ordinance giving him authority- to Issue
such a proclamation.
"My order will stand," reiterated the
Regardless of the fact that since his
edict hardware merchants are advertising
dog musxles for sale, the mayor disclaims
any thought of affecting the market or
aiding any particular dealer.
Chief Donahue has taken sldea with the
mayor In this dog-muxslo question. He
says the mutate Is needed, is effective and

laid his work aside. When the matter of
the tnusxllng of dogs waa mentioned a

"It Is an lit wlnd that blows nobody

where the purchasing of thousands of dog
musxles Is involved, there is the possibility
of graft, but I wish to make no mention
of that. I will be charitable.

better classes of us would not. It Is folly
to speak of It."

ment, "we brand this order as class legis

"D'ye know," continued the famous dog,'
drawing closer and speaking confidentially,
"there's something about a cat's smirk
that is maddening to a dog. , We never

Coatraelors Kcea Then la
The Japanese and Corean coolie, be
fore they land at the Honolulu half way
house, enroute to the Vnlted States, pre
sent a very different appearance from that
hlch they make after they have passed
through the hands of the wily contractor's
agents of the Hawaiian port. Tha coolies
leaving Japan and Corea under contract
to work In this country say farewell to
their native land attired for tha most part
In their native costumes.
It la a part of the agreement which
they enter into with' the contractors that
they will be provided with suitable Ameri
can clothing and given instructions aa to
the proper manner to wear the same, by
the contractors at Honolulu. The bills
for this clothing outfit are In moat cases
charged up against them and they land at
San Francisco owing a considerable sum
of money to the contractors, for the cloth
ing and money advanced, which sum Is to
be gradually repaid out of their wages.
Open-work socks, fancy waistcoats,
gaudy neckwear, patent leather ties and
other expensive and superfluous articles of
apparel are forced upon the Ignorant
coolies by the scheming Contractors, who
make a Urge profit on all of the articles
sold. As a result of this system, th.
ooolle is so heavily In debt to the con
tractor for clothing, board, money ad
vanced, steamer and railroad fare, that
all he la able to eke out In the United
States is a bare existence. Hla condition
Is often one of virtual slavery. When his
debt to the labor contractor is repaid
he is a free man and can work wherever
he chooses, but the contractors see to !t
that as long as they need the coolie they
keep him in debt. Should the Japanese
coolie violate his contract he must reckon
with the Japanese Association of Amerlcu,
which has agencies everywhere In the
United States and all the power of a labor
union to enforce a boycott and punish
any Japanese who violates a contract
with an Immigration company. dan Fran
MEN ACCUSED OF "FENCING"
Feed Store Merchant Said ta Have
Abetted Boys la Stealing
The Juvenile department has information
upon which the members of a feed store
firm may be arrested on the charge with
aiding and abetting delinquency In young
boys by acting as a "fence"' for stolen
goods. According to the evidence secured
by Probation Officer Bernstein, one man
has regularly bought feed and grain from
boys which they have stolen from cars In
the yards of the Great Western and Union
Pacific railroad and has been encouraging
them to greater efforts at stealing. L'pon
the information eight boys ranging In age
from 4 to 11 years. Were taken to the Ju
venile home Thursday and papers will be
served on tha accused within a short time.
The boys would bore holes In the floors of
grain cars, letting it out into sacks and
would also break Into cars to get feed.
