THE NEW O. & T. LOAN.
It was reported on Sundaj that a
syndicate of prominent capitalists of
New York and Philadelphia had pur
chased on Saturday a large block of
stocks of the Northern Pacific rail
Toad system from the Oregon and
Transcontinental Company which
controls them. The sale includes
80,000 shares each of Northern Pacific
common and preferred stock, and
10,000 or 12,500 shares of Oregon Kail
way -and Navigation" -stock. The
prices at which the stocks were taken
were not made public, but those
mentioned most frequently are 35 for
Northern Pacific preferred, 15 for
common and 75 for Oregon Railway
and Navigation. It is known that
these figures have been considered in
negotiations leading to thiB sale, but
one of the members of the syndicate
said that the prices finally agreed up
on were considerably higher. The
exact terms of the sale are not ascer
tained. Members of the syndicate
decline to state them, and were re
luctant to admit that the transaction
had been finished. Some officers of
the Northern Pacific Company said
the sale had been made, but they did
not know the precise terms of agree
ment It was acknowledged by all
that stocks had been bought for an
investment by the syndicate, and
therefore would be withdrawn from
It is also said that the sale has sup
plied the Oregon and Transcontinen
tal Company with all the money
needed to surmount the present diffi
culties and go on with its business.
By the sale ample provision for pay
ment of the company's liabilities for
the next year was made, and recent
rumors of a receivership which have
been circulated industriously since
the retirement of Henry Villard from
the management will be silenced. The
members of the syndicate, so far as
their names have been learned, are
Anthony J. Drexel of Philadelphia,
with whom are associated C. B.
Wright and one or two other friends
there; DrexeL Morgan & Co., Cyrns
W. Field, Jay Gould and Russell
Sage of New York, and others promi
nently .connected with the present
management of the companies. It is
understood that they have made some
explicit or express agreement among
themselves that the stock will not be
offered for sale for a long time. It is
hinted they have certain privileges as
to their stock, but the nature of this
part of the agreement is carefully
concealed. The sale does not effect
control by the Oregon and Transcon
tinental Company of the Northern
Pacific system, and no changes in the
directories of any of the companies
will be made at present in conse
quence of it
Jay Gould said, when asked about
the matter, that he was not at liberty
to speak about it "I left my office
early on Saturday," he added, "and
do not know that anything had. been
done. The first I heard of it was a
day or two ago, when I was asked if
T would take an interest in a scheme
to raise some money for the Oregon
and Transcontinental Company. It
seems that some loans of the company
had been called for and that a consider
able sum of money was to be pro
Tided immediately. After a confer
' ence twith some of the friends of the
oompany, I agreed to furnish my
' parfC and when I returned to my of
- fice I sent my check for it The per
sons'wbo called the loans were in
formed that the company would pay
the money on return of the collateral
securities, but the leaders apparently
did'notswant money. They certainly
had not returned the securities when
I started for home, I think they will
be invited to take their securities to
morrow." The Sun says: The pool in Vil
lards seems to have been formed un
der Jay Gould's guidance. He and
BuBsell Sage are reported to have
-'made a large loan to the Oregon!
and Transcontinental Company on
Saturday evening, and thus saved
that concern from final collapse, its
heavy indebtedness having reached
maturity. The amount of the accom
odation supplied is variously esti
mated at from 2,000,000 to S6.000,
000. The correct figures will probab
ly prove 81,500,000. The terms were
satisfactory to the loaners, whose in-

stock exchange to allow any big ca-

"were compelled to stretch a helping
hand to the Oregon and Transconti
nental company for the purpose of
sustaining the general market They
"unquestionably succeeded in their ef-
forts, for the market closed quite
strong with a substantial advance in

Half-the burdens of life are caused
by worrying, And more than half
-our worrying is about the future. As
we know nothing of the future, not

Gossip About C. P. Huntington.
Huntington's wealth to-day is prob
ably something under $50,000,000.
But he may be richer even than Van
derbilt before he dies. Huntington is
a New York man and is sixty-five
years of age. He is very strong and
carries his self-imposed burdens of
affairs very easily. He seems to have
a fair chance of living to be eighty.
He has no children. His wife died a
few months ago, and one young
adopted daughter is the only family
that remains to him. He may marry,
butshould he not, it will be a very
interesting question as to what be
will do with all his wealth when he
dies. Perhaps the question will puz
zle Mr. Huntington more than any
one else. Mr. Huntington spends a
good deal of time in Washington, and
always stops at Willard's. His habits
are pimple, and he makes no display.
When he wants to see a man he gen
erally sends for him. His agent here
is Mr.' SherrilL who attends carefully
to his interests, which are alwajs be
fore congress in one way or another.
This year it is necessary to prevent
the revocation of the Texas Pacific
laud grant, which it is hoped may in
some way be converted to the use and
benefit of the California Southern
Pacific. A good story is told of a
Washington man whom Mr. Hunt
ington desired to "see" about his rail
way business when he was last here.
The man in question had been pitch
ing into Mr. Huntington's schemes,
and was invited into his private par
lor to talk over the matter. When he
arrived there ho found other people
present, and somebody looking very
much like a stenographer sitting at a
table over in a corner. So he began
to talk about the physical geography
of Southern Asia, and to his utter
surprise, found that Mr. Huntington
was perfectly at homo on the topic.
They discussed it for an hour, and if
Mr. Huntington did not do any rail
road business that afternopn, he at
least proved to his companions that
he was a man of wide general in
formation. Boston Herald.
In 1876 Mr. Carlisle was for the
first time a candidate for congress in
the Kentucky district he now repre
sents, and in a speech made by him
atCynthiana,he is reported as saying:
"I deny that the United States is a
nation" It is a vicious system that
has destroyed sovereign states and
oppressed 9,000,000 people in the
South. If a state has no right of se
cession, she certainly has the right of
revolution." These sentiments, says
the Marysville Appeal, made Mr.
Carlisle popular among the Confed
erate Democrats, and hence his ad
vancement in honor to the position of
speaker, the office next to the presi
dency. A large public meeting in Wyoming
Territory has requested the president
to appoint a woman as governor. If
this is done will she be governor or
governoress? And will she be "Her
Excellency" or "Her Sweetness?"
