The Chicago Tribune anaSyxea tihe last
report of the Interstate commerce com
mission as follows:
Tine lntenataite commerce commission
has issued its seventh annual report' on
the statistics of railways in the . United
States, thus being for--the year ending
wltih June, 184. At the close of that
year the 'total mllesge was 178.708 miles.
being an increase of 2,247 miles during ths-
year. The 1.27 percentage of Increase
was less than tihalt for any previous year,
Of course this fact wau due to tlhe panic,
(the depreaulng effects of whdoh were oth
erwise Shown by the fact that of the
192 railroads in the hands of receivers,
126 were placed 'there during the year.
These 192 roadis have a tol'aJ of 40,819 miles
of Cine, and a eeultajliatlon ot 2,500 mil
lion dotlars, or one -fourth of the total
rAtjway capluatisation of the country.
At the date ot the report all the lines
in 'the United States (had In rervlee a tolal
of 85,492 'locomotives and 1.278,078 cars, of
which 1,205,169 were In freight rervlee.
Ea-h frolght Tocomotlve was credited with
4,016,7136 tons carried one mUe on (the aver
age, and each passenger locomotive with
1,444,400 passengers carried one mUe. To
tal ipaawngeiB carried 510,088,199 and
freight 633,186,553 tons. The number of
employes was 779,608, being 414 to each
100 miKes of Wne, against 873,0O'l persons
wtitlh an average of 515 per 100 miles of
line the pn-ovlous year. But the reduotoln
was the -greatest on Hhose linen which
had received thie largeet stimulus from
the World's Fair business, aind the cheap
er median las and the apprentices having
suffered more Khan the mora highly skin
ed employes. The saving in the pay-rolls
neceiajitalted by the depression following
tlhe panic was achieved by a reduction
In tflie number of employes rather than
a reduction In wages.

-to 49 2-3 per cent of the entire oapDtalizar

The total capital' of bonds and stock was
10,796 minions, of $62,951 per inlle of line.
The stock on which no dividends fcwe

details devolve upon the managers of s.
targe piece ot construction work on a ruli
road and the Astoria-Ooble road is no
exoeption to the rule. Camps umist be
built and mialn'talned, the provisions are
to be provided and a regular boteC niixln
italncd In all of Its details. The dally work
on tho road must be planned and over
seen by compettnit foremen, aCl of the
'Jive stock and tooCs have to be taken
care of, and each man has to know hid
duty and perform it at the appointed time.
The contractor himself has to know that
alt of theue detuils are beJlng carofu.ly
looked after and mu&'t of necessity be
a very busy man.
- To Bin Astortan representative Mr. Cory
said that 'they were making good prog

THE NAVY AS A CAREER.

In tlhe social' organisation. The considera
tion accorded to a profession In any so

aimu and pursuits of that society, and
upon tlhe valine to its Intereeits that It rec
ognizes in this profession a question. A
combination of olroumeltancos, which It Is
needless hers to analyse, have contributed
to fasten the attention of the citizen ot
tlhie United Slaiteu pretty exviusiveily upon
the lriteriml affairs of tlhe country, and
to aittiaidh to tlhe making and having ot
