None of the rail, road hat any idle eara however, for all are ahort, those in the northwest suffering chiefly on account tf the heavy shinmenta of crain in that atction. A Initial blockade exista at St. Taul where the Great Northern has been unable to take delivery of freight from Ita conneetiona. The company i said to be very ahort of motive power and there is no way of re lieving the condition. . u ; - . ii , ' MOVEMENT OF CRAIN. i. Chicago.

DENVER & BIO GRANDE. The Denver & Bio Grande statement for' October showing the best increases in earnings seen this year, is in direct contrast to the September report which showed a loss In gross earnings of 170,000 and a decrease in surplus of 159,000. Tbe October' statement snows an expansion in gross earnings amounting to 991,232, and an increase in net of 1103,475. indicating a redaction in expenses or luM3. Denver & Bio Grande has for some time been showing either decreases or very small increases in expenses whioh 4s very ununual at this time when increased expenses appear to be the rule, tor four months expenses nave .been reduced 196,807 on a gross Increase of f 110,521. Last year the company earned 2.58sJ on its common stock after allowing for the preferred dividend and tho. innrease in surplus so far this year indicates that At least Zi on the common is now being earned. CHICAGO GREAT WESTERN. In spire of small increases in gross shown in the statements of Bentember land October, Chi cago Great Western earnings for the first four months of the current fiscal year are considerably behind those of the corresponding period a year ago. The loss in gross is somewhat offset by a re duction of f 1M.301 in expenses, bringing the loss an net for the year to date to $91,237, which it is possible may be eliminated in tbe balance of tbe year. Last year tbe company 'just about earned the five per cent, required by the "A" stock and the loss in net so far this year indicates that, if there has been no material increase In fixed charges, about 4J is now being earned on the "A."

Within a few days past formal announcement has been made for the purchase price of the White Star Line, via.: ' Cash! ..... . .$15,736,IS0 Preferred stock. . 25,174,0011 Common stock............. 12,BS7,000 . Total . $53,49780 Assuming that the consolidation is being carried out on the terms of the original agreement, these figures will enable us to complete in detail the account of the expenditures of cash and stock as follows: Preferred. $18,314,000 133m6.0o6 25,174,000 786.000 2,500,000 Cash.. $15,844,000 11.736.000 6.683.820 issc.iso Total.. ... .$60,000,000 $60,000,000, $50,000,000 These figures are consistent with the announce ment of the navment in London. December 1. to the cash as the combined cash allotment of tbe companies comes to $22420,000. If the valuation of the Dominion Line is and the payments are $6,683,820 in cash, $13,226,- 000 in preferred stock and $6,613,000 in common stock, there seems to be an inconsistency . between them and the relative tonnages of the two lines which have bn resorted to be 74.ooo for the Dominion and irTn mil.

It must be remembered jhs International Fire Engine Co. pfd, however, that the business of Richards, Mills & Co. is included in the price for the former and' that of Ismay, Imrie & Co. in the price of the latter. Presuming that the cash for the American Line, $15,844,000, is needed in the near future, the company will nave expended, including this latter sum, $38,264,- 000 of the $40,000,000 underwriting called in up to I date. Unless, therefore, a considerable amount of bonds has been placed an early call for the balance of the underwriting seems to be in order. Philadelphia One largely interested in both tbe Metropolitan Street Railway Company and the International Marine Company says: "I notice a report in the papers that a certain Philadelphia n during the last week or ten days sold 20,000 shares of Metropolitan ia order to meet tbe requirements of the International Mercantile Marine underwrit ing. Twenty thousand snares of Metropolitan, at the' lowest price which they could Imve brought, would tnean up toward $3,000,000. I know that the total abare of Philadelphia in the International Mercantile Marina underwriting .was not more than one-fifth of this suss." - An offioer of tbe LUr national Mercantile Co. says: "ins Aiiamic .transportation line win not receive any stock ia the International Merc a tile Marine Company lor tke purpose of distribution among employes. 1 gather that President Baker's 13 shs North American Trust Co. 10 sbs Westinghouae EJec. ft Manfg.
