freight earnings amounting to $5,S00
per mile of line. It should be noted
that some, if not all, of the per mile
averages derived from the prelimi
nary compilation nre probably some
' what larger than those that will ap
pear from the full returns for the
year when compiled for an increased
number of roads, owing to the inclu
sion of those havinc comnarat'ivelv
j small earnings per mile of line.
j Operating Expenses.
I Tlie operating expenses aggregated
Sl.02d.15C.2Sl, which indicates an av
erage outlay on this account of ?5.323
per mile of line. Making a compar-
ison between these preliminary fig. j
ures for 1901 and the final figures for i
11)00. it appears that gross earnings
increased ? I89 per mile of line, oper-1
ating expenses ?3.'!0, and net earnings 1
$159. J
Net Earnings. j
The net earnings of the railways in-,
eluded in the present report were j
$555.01.17.924, and as the net earnings '
of the same railways for 1900, disre- j
garding unimportant exceptions, were j
5519.430,700, there was an increase of I
535.577.21S in this item. I
Dividends Declared.
The railways to which this report '
relates received also an income from '
sources other than operation, as from
investments of various kinds, amount-i
ing to $05,271,244. This income, in!
addition to the net earnings stated,
mode the net income of the railways i
for the last fiscal year $020,279,108.;
From this sum, to ascertain the sur- J
plus from the operations of the year, .
there must be deducted interest on
bonds, rents of leased lines, better-1
ments charged to income, taxes j
(which were $47,041,214). dividends
and other miscellaneous expenditures. .
The total of these deductions from in
come, not including dividends, was
$421,G25,790. The dividends declared;
during the year aggregated $121,108, i
037. As it is shown that the divi
dends of corresponding roads for 1900
were $108,210,052, it appears that the
pecuniary returns to their stockhold
ers in 1901 wore about $1.1,000,000
greater than in the year before. It
should perhaps be explained that the
dividends stated in the preliminary
reports, which are compiled from the
returns of operating roads only, do
not represent the entire amount of
dividends declared on tho stocks of
all the railway companies in the
United States, because the dividends
declared by those companies that
lease thoir property to others for op-;
eratlon are paid from the rentals they I
receive, and such dividends are neces-j
sarily omitted from reports of this j
character. Returns for a series of
years indicate, however, that the total
amount of dividends paid by both
classes of companies annually In
cludes, roughly, about $30,00,0,000 paid
on tho part of leased lines.
From the income statement of the
operating companies included in the
report under consideration, it appears
that the surplus from their operations
for the year ending June 30, 1901, .was
$77,514,735. Tho surplus for the pre
vious year shown in tho final report
was $87,057,933. For 1897, Instead of
a surplus, there was a deficit of $0,-120,483.
Dr. W. R. Campbell Comes to Town
and Corrects a Statement About
His Swine.
On apparently reliable information,
the East Oregoninn published a story
to the effect that Dr. W. R. Campbell
had lost all of his hogs but 10 out of a
band of 70 from the plague that is
prevalent in the country, and as the
doctor was not in town and could not
be seen to correct the statement, It
was published "as facts. Tuesday he
was in town and positively denied
the story, saying that he never gave
out such information and that, as a
matter of fact, he has lost only 10
hogs out of his whole band and that
he did not anticipate the loss of any
more. He says he is doctoring the
sick ones and they are getting well
and no more are taking the disease.
