Editor of The Detroit ree Press: The Right Hon Childers President of the Great Western Railway Company to announced to have sailed from Rugland on the 7ch instant for this country yr One object of his visit which he promises his shareholders will be so long that their reg ular half yearly meeting on October 31st will be deferred until his return to to consum mate the arrangement with representa lives of the Detroit Milwaukee for the perpetual lease of the road of that company That arrangement is best stated In Mr own language to his shareholders it the Great Western will practi cally have to find nothing In cash The future capital instead of being seven and one half mlllons Is reduced to five millions of dollars fcr the Intel est upon which we shall acquire the control of this railway extending to close upon 190 miles Therefore without raising capital ourselves but only guarantee ing the capital either raised to re equlp the line or taken In substitution of existing bonds we shall acquire for something under a million sterling practically the control of a line of 190 miles at the rate of rather more than five thousand pounds a mile That in terest the first year will be about twenty six' thousand pounds for the next four years forty eight thousand pounds for the next five years fifty four thousand pounds and thereafter about sixty thousand pounds a year The question has been asked me where will you find all that money I say distinctly we shall find that money We hope to find the whole of It even more in the line itself because worked and developed as that line will be as part of the Great Western system Its own revenues ought to produce that amount A well managed line of so large an extent and going through so important a district as the Detroit Milwaukee district ought to produce fully the revenue we shall pay away In the shape of Interest But be sides that gentlemen you must remember that we shall be retaining a control of the Detroit Milwaukee Railroad retain a very valuable traffic en our own system the whole of which if the road passes into the hands of other companies we certainly should not re tain I do not wish to say more on the subject because to a great extent I must put it before you as a question of confidence If I were to say to you that we are making a par ticularly good bargain that we are doing something which is going to add enormously to your profits the bargain Lot being yet final ly complete! It might be said we shall hear that re echoed on the other side and you are only augmenting your own difficul Therefore I will only say this that In the Interest of the company we unanimously at our Board the men in whom yon could have placed confidence consider you ought to confirm this arrangement and we ask you on that ground to confirm It The large majority of the Interests to the Detroit Milwaukee Railroad to with us and If we and tbev finally conclude the arrangement we have every reason to believe we are quite strong enough to carry It well Doubtless the honorable chairman spoke from the book in making this last statement and it may be quite Idle to suggest even a doubt as to the esrly and entire fulfillment of hto anticipation Probably the tives of the with whom he has ne gotiated and large majority of inter which are with him have adjusted the preliminaries In such manner 'that the constituents and the minority (no matter how large or how Intelligent) are all too weak and must remain voiceless and must accept whatever is offered by those of their foreign friends to whom great amounts have been confided Therefore It la not proposed at pres ent to dtocnss the question whether either the public interests with which this railway company has tome con nection are to be subserved by a lease for 999 years to the Great Western Railway Company of Canada or the private interests of the six millions of bonds affected by the pro posal are to be promoted by accepting fifty per cent 1 bonds of a new company with out any additions at capital for the par and Interest of their 1 present bonds without even an agreement for Interest on the new bonds for the first year without any right to foreclose for three years thereafter and with largely reduced rates of nominal Inter est as long as the bonds shall run The convincing argument which on the surface appears to have weighed with those who have consented to this arrest reduction In the nominal exchangee has been that the Great Western Railway Company would guarantee the payment of the new bonds principal and inter est s' i It may seem the height of Impertinence for an American uncultured In English railway modes and values and tests of value to have allowed something like a substantial doubt to have entered hto mind as to the real solid worth of that guarantee In dollars and cents but such a doubt was started by reading and grows by reflecting upon the proceedings of the special meeting of Great Western share holder held on the 3d Instant just before Mr Childers sailed It appears from the statement then made by the same right hon orable chairman that bonds of that company for £6fi6 300 sterling equal at $5 to $3332 000 bearing 5 1 2 per cent interest are fall ing due And how was It proposed to pay this debt The chairman said that if they had not ap plied a million a quarter of dollars of capital In 1876 to payment of past due Inter est having previously used up for that pur pose all their special funds for rebuilding ferry steamers and kindred objects and if the traffic had been better since that time and if contingencies had been favorable the company would have had some money to ap ply upon this $3332000 '7 But this was old debt contracted twenty years for which the chairman and hto Board was not in any way responsi ble and the company might well receive hto congratulations that they could rely upon hto financial ability to protect them from em barrassment To provide for this debt the Great Western shareholders upon his advice authorised and confirmed the issne of more than three millions cf dollars of stock in addition to two and a half millions of seven per cent bonds to retire or renew $3 332 000 of debt either past due or soon maturing The seven per cent bonds to take up those running at five and a hilt ought to find a market when sandwiched with three millions of stock and doubtless the genius displayed prevailed to satisfy those Interested These facts occasioned the doubt They may be explained and the doubt dispelled It has been intimated that the Great Western aa a guarantor of the Detroit Milwaukee would be more careful of its obliga tions than it would be as a principal debtor to its own friends and would submit to even greater sacrifices to protect the former Perhaps so Othxb PortsU Chicago 'Aug Props Commodore Buffalo: Waverly
