NEW TRUST FOR BILLION
HOW BIG RAILROAD COMBINATION
IS MADE UP.
Stocks and Bonds of Corporations
Included in the Northern Securi
ties Company of New Jersey.
The numerous reports touching the or
ganization of the Northern Securities
Company, the new railroad trust, have
failed to give a clear idea of component
pirts of the new corporation, the property
it would own and the obligations it would
have to meet. This Is set forth in the
following statement compiled by the Wall ,
Street Journal, from which It appears that
this is the first billion-dollar railroad
As at present constituted, the Northern
Securities Company will absorb the stocks
of the Great Northern and Northern Pa
cific Companies, and will control the
equity In the Burlington Company repre
senting the earning capacity of the com
pany. It may be useful, therefore, to
present a rough statement cf the securi
ties outstanding on the constituent com
panies and the capitalization of the new
The table which follows shows the bonds

uent roads as of June 30, 1901:

On this the Interest charges are approx
imately as follows:
C B. & Q. bonded debt $ 7.400.000
Great Northern bonded debt 4.800.000
Northern Pacltlc bonded debt G.400,000

000 annually. This is about the sum that
must be earned before any dividend can
be paid on the stock of the company,
which amounts to $400,000,000.
The earnings of the constituent com
panies last year were as follows:
Gross earnings ..
Maintenance of way
Maintenance of equipment
Total expenses ...
Total mileage operated 1S.055 1
Gross earnings $110.063.000 '
Malnt. of way.. ........$18,327,253 ,

General expense 3.700,027
Operating expenses $ 04,025,454
Net earnings from operation $ 4C.O3S.203
Other income - 2.501.004
Gross Income $ 4&543.2O0
It thus appears that the new company,
if it had been In operation last year, would
have shown earnings eaqual to almost
exactly 4 per cent on its stock after pay
ment of all charges and operating ex
It is expected that the constituent com
panies will show an Increase In net this
year of about $5,000,000, which will put tht
company in a position to show 5 per cent
on Its stock.
In the above calculation no deduction
is made for "additions and betterments"
not charged to operating expenses.
No account is taken of the Chicago,
Burlington & Qulncy Railway Company
In the above capitalization, as it does not
represent actual capitalization, but only
machinery of organization.
The Northern Securities Company Is
therefore organized as follows:
Bonded debt, etc $017,000,000.
Thus it is the first "billion-dollar" cor
poration In the railroad business. It op
crates about 18,250 miles of road, so that
it is capitalized for. roughly. $33,800 per
mile in bonds, and 522,000 per mile In stock
in all, say $55,800 per mile.
AS TO THE WORD "JEW."
Rabbi Stephen S. Wise Writes on a
The New York Evening Post recently
addressed a letter to several prominent
rabbis, asking their views concerning
the mention in newspapers of the racial
or religious affiliations of Jews. Among
those to whom the inquiry was submitted
was Rabbi Stephen S. Wise, of Portland,
who answered as follows:
In reply to your question whether the char
acterization "Uerman Jew" Is more objection
able than an "Italian Catholic" I can but
cay that as a Jew, not as an "American He
brew," I decidedly object to the gratuitous
characterization, "German Jew" or "American
Hebrew," and believe, moreover no more de
cidedly than would nn Englishman to "Eng
lish Protestant" or &n Italian to an "Italian
Catholic" By way of parenthesis, the choice

church'and the Italian Government respective
ly, are implacable foes.
For one thing, in recording the fact that Mr.
Blank was waylaid and murdered In some town
in Poland (to cite your own names). It is as
unimportant to mention that Mr. Blank was a
Polish Jew as it would be to note that his

"Mr. Blank, a Polish Jew." as a mode of des-
lgnation. is, I take it. but a survival of the i
reminiscence of the custom or linking Jew ana
Jewish with offensive and opprobrious epithets.
Names, names, names! Under ordinary cir
cumstances, such a characterization as "Amer
ican Jew" or "German Hebrew" is almost In
excusable, save ln such cases when It Is whol
ly inexcusable namely, when It is designed
thereby (as I take it ln your case It Is not)
to give expression to the widespread fallacy
that the Jew Is everywhere and at all times
other than and apart from his fellow citizens,
ln whatever land he resides, as If the Jew ln
America were not and could not be a loyal
American. Heavens knows that ln Russia and
other European countries, the government
strives, through harsh measures of repression
to whip every Instinct of loyalty and patriot
ism out of the dwellers of the pale, and still.
1 pvca under such conditions, th Jew ro
patriotic and l&w-upholding to an astonishing
decree. The rule may be safely laid down that
Jew or Jewish should not be aflheed to the
name of a man or made mention of In connec
tion with his nationality save in such cases
when the reference tends to throw light upon
the matter under discussion.
I have not yet been able to recover from
my astonishment at your further question.
"Which Is considered preferable Mr. Blank, a
Pole, or Mr. Blank, a Jew?" "Alles 1st action
da gewesen," save this, that a Jew be asked
"which characterization Is preferable to him!
Throughout the ages the least preferable has
been applied to us -with unchanging uniform
ity. Again, you ask whether the Jews are
proudest of their race or their special coun
tries. Must Uiere need oe a connict oeitven
honest pride of race and Just pride of country?
In the words of a Gcrman-Jewlsh-French-Christlan-Pagan-Greek
poet, for Helnrlch
Heine was all of these you might say: "1 am
proud that I am sprung from a great, an Im
mortal, a consecrated race, a God-serving peo
ple.' . . . that I belong to 'the noble home
of Israel, a descendant of those martyrs who
gave the world a God and a morality and who
have fought and auffered on all the battle-
fields 0f thought.' " Again I am proud that I

It was once truly said by Lord Ersklne, "there
is as sacred a regard to property, as inviolable
a security to all the rights of individuals,
lower taxes, fewer grievances, less to deplore
and more to admire In the Constitution of
America than that of any other country under
heaven." My religion instlllt the loftiest principles-
of patriotism Into the hearts of Its dis
ciples. Is it disloyal to my country to love
and revere and hold In pride such a religion?
You have "addressed to me the question of the
nursery. "Whom do you lovo better, father or

I Is something amusing In the use of "Hebrew"
and "Israelite" by Jews eager to let down the
bars of the ghetto and by Christians more
eager, if possible, to build the gnetto walls
higher. Instead of the simple, cownrlght name

THE OPERATOR'S SECRET.
A Story From Oregon of the Time of
A woman living In San Jose, but whose
girlhood days were spent in Eugene, Or.,
I recalls a new story In connection with the
assassination of Abraham Lincoln, says a
At that time Eugene City, which now
boasts a population of some 3000 or 4000
souls, was a hamlet containing not more
hundreds than it now has thousands of
inhabitants. It had no daily press, but
' thrr were two small weeklies, the Jour-
nal a Republican paper, published by
the Kincald Brothers, and the Eugene
Guard, the organ of the Democracy,
which was owned and edited by Tony
Nolter, a unique character well known
to the old-time newspaper folk.
The news of the assassination was tele
graphed from Sacramento to The Ore
gonlan on the morning, following tho
shooting of Mr. Lincoln. This was before
C. B. & Q.
the era of leased wires and in the tedious
methods of repeating then In vogue it
was about 10 o'clock in the morning
-when thn messnee wan tlokprl off nn the
tape in the little office of the Western
Union at Eugene City, where the awe
stricken operator repeated it to The Ore
gonlan at Portland. The key manipula
tor was a young man named Blanding,
who was also a clerk In a general mer
chandise store, and when he could find
leisure read the law.
In those days the press associations
gave out no news bulletins for the In
formation of the public except through
the newspapers which they served. The
Western Union was even stricter than
now in regard to the Inviolable secrecy
which It Imposed upon Its agents In re
gard to messages of all kinds which
passed over its wires.
Blanding was a man of an exceptionally
high sense of honor, and would have per
ished at the stake rather than to have
violated the obligation of secrecy under
which he worked. The awful story of
the brutal murder of the beloved Presi
dent was known to him and to him alone
of all the people of the town. It was
more than ho could bear, and he imme
diately became hysterical. He wept, sob
bed and moaned and called upon God for
Friends gathered about him and tried
to sooth him, but in vain. They gleaned
from his ravings that he was in posses
sion of awful news which he could not
divulge. Physicians urged him . to tell
them in confidence and thus relieve the
strain which he was under, and so also
pleaded his young wife, but sobs and
moans were his only response.
He was removed to his home and
watched by friends lest he should do
himself an Injury, and for six hours the
vigil was kept until the news came back
from Portland and was given to the pub

awaken the tenderest emotions of his more fortunate fellow being. The haggard
countenance, swollen joints and twisted and deformed limbs tell a pathetic story of
suffering such as Rheumatism alone can inflict. Only those who are painfully
and slowly hobbling through life can fully realize what it means to be crutch-bound.
They feel most keenly their helpless and dependent condition when it dawns upon
them that they are no longer workers but unwilling drones in the busy world.
Rheumatism should not be neglected because the pains at first are wander
ing and slight. These are only the rumblings of an approaching storm of pains
and aches that may transfer you from a life of activity to the ranks of the crutch
Rheumatism is due to acrid gritty particles being deposited in the joints
muscles and nerves by an impure and too-acid blood, and the strongest constitutions or mus!
cles of iron and nerves of steel can long withstand these corroding poisons. They penetrate
to every fibre of the body, and no liniment, lotion or other external application can reach
ana uisiuugc uicin.
Finally the natural oils are consumed when there
is a creaking, grinding noise with every movement of the
limbs, the joints become locked and immovable, the mus
cles wither or contract, the nervous system gives way
and the patient becomes a physical wreck and crutch
bound cripple. Rubbing with liniments may produce
counter-irritation and afford temporary ease, but they
cannot reach and destroy these corrosive particles, which
are daily forming in the blood.
The correct treatment the true cure for Rheu
matism is a remedy that will dissolve and wash out
this inflammatory matter and expel it from the system,
and no medicine does this so promptly and thoroughly
as S. S. S. It neutralizes and eliminates from the blnnd
current all poisonous, noxious substances and makes the blood pure and strong again and,
as it circulates through the bod', all effete matter is gathered up and sent out through the
proper channels. This rich new blood cools the feverish, throbbing muscles and joints and
refreshes the tired nerves; and welcome relief comes to the wretched sufferer.
