OBLIGATIONS THAT ARE ABOUT DUE
Had Company OBflned Itself to

way Sltnatlon Woald
Just at present the Union Pacific rail
road, with its great reconstruct! t, E. H.
Harrlman, stand in the center of the stage
with the limelight shining directly on them.
In the east and west they are receiving
general attention and many of the eastern
papers are devoting great space to the dis
cussion of the finances of the Overland,
with special reference to the policy of re
trenchment so recently Instituted; In fart
put Into effect only since the Nebraska
legislature got so "perniciously" busy with
laws which affected Its Interests. As con
servative a paper as the New York Even
ing Post says on Its financial page that the
Union Pacific must raise between $T5,000.o"0
and $100,000,000 by fall to meet obligations
and Intimates that this may be one reason
for the abandonment of such Improve-1
ments as the Omaha general headquarters,
without specifying that projected struc
ture. The Post takes the view that had the
Union Pacific confined Itself to the pur
poses for which it was originally Intended
the entire railway situation would be much
clearer than It la.
View of the Past.
The Tost has this to say:
Union Pacific sold down to 137 last Mon
day, at which price it yielded Vi per cent,
on persistent rumors that the company
was about to Issue short term notes. As
$220,yo,0iX) short term notes have been sold
bv the re lronds since January 1. the Issu
ing of such securities has been the rule
rather than the exception. But the I'nlon
Pacific was the one road thought to be ex
empt from the necessity of adopting such
an expedient. Tt was only four months ago
that the annual statement was published
revealing financial strength heretofore nn-
?aralleled by any other railway company,
lecent disclosures, however, showed that
since the close of the year debts had been
contracted. Then came the piecing to
gether of evidence that resulted In this
For the year ended June 80 last, the
Union Pacific earned 15 per cent for Its
common slock and reported current asfts.
Including $,"fi,0no.00rt cash, of $123,077,000.
agnlnst only $34,710,000 floating indebted
ness. It was pointed out In the annual
statement Issued late In November that
$5)1,000,000 would be required during i:W7 for
construction of new lines snd for new
equipment, but the sum was generally con
sidered trifling In view of the cash on hand,
$100,000,000 unissued preferred stock and on
plodired securities amounting to porno $1S
ono.ooo. That was before It was known that
flW.Wl.OOO had been spent for Illinois Cen
tral, Baltimore & Ohio. New York Central,
Atchison and other stocks, and before It
became Impracticable to sell bonds. The
purchase of those stocks compelled the
I'nlon Pacific to use Its cash and besides
Five the Pennsylvania notes for J4S.M6.nnn.
The notes mature early In the fall, and the
management must also provide for the JfA-
OnO.OOO construction and equipment outliy.
According to the Southern Pacific's last an
nual renort, that company must raise this
year $17,0io,ooo for equipment and enough
to cover expenditures on account of the
1,600 miles of road under construction.
All told the Union Pacific needs between
$75.(00,000 and $100,000,000, while the Southern
Pacific could probably get along with be
tween $30,000,000 and $30,000,000 new money.
There is no question as to the ability of
the Union Pacific-Southern Pacific man
agement to raise! all of the funds required.
Hut, whether or not the money can be
raised on terms more advantageous than
those ofTered to Pennsylvania, Lake Shorn,
Atlantic Coast Line and other roads with
flrst-clsss credit remains to be seen.
Eliminating all questions of profits by In
siders and the loss of $2l,000,0oo shown by
Union Pacific at one time, on the stocks
purchased last fall. It grows more and more
difficult to understand why that company's
credit was used to acquire at top prices
minority shares of New York Central.'

had confined Itself to the pu! poses for

While the mandamus suit Involving the
city engineersuip has been aubmltted In
court and taken under advisement by tho
Judge, considerable speculation Is going on
in the city hall as to the situation and
what the subsquent moves will be. The
point submitted to the court Involves the
;rlma facie claim to tha office, turning on
whether the council had a right to declare
a vacancy and elect a new engineer to fill
Jt In the way In which It did.
According to Inside Information, the at
torneys who appear for Shaw and for the
city council In their effort to oust Androw
Roeewater do not have much confidence in
tho case they have made. At any rate,
they have advised the council to prepare to
take a different tack in anticipation of an
adverse decision in court. It Is said that
all three of these lawyers agree that while
the authority of the councll'a action In
electing Shaw may be questioned, the char
ter can be read to give the mayor and coun
cil the right to provide by ordinance for
the filling of vacanclea by refusal of the
mayor'a appointee to qualify. It la said
that such an ordinance already has been
drawn and was to have been Introduced
at the last meeting of the council, but was
withheld for fear It might effect. the man
damus case then pending. This ordinance
will define vacanclea In appointive offices
and assume to the council the right to fill
the same under prescribed conditions.
