PIERSON & CARR D, Q. Co. THE ALTON SALE. Continued Report* that the Road Is Offered to the Highest Bidder. Your Husband and Brother must have a nice Xmas Present. One of our 'ILK UMBRELLA Would be just the proper thing. H. M. senWEPPE, Third Street eiothier. So many reports have been placed in circulation recently about the sale of the Chicago and Alton railway.that It IB impoBBlble to give credence to any of them. John J. Mitchell, President of the Illinois Trust and Savings Rank, Chicago, is now in New York, as an agent of the road, with authority to sell the property to the highest bidder. There are said to be three parties negotiating tor the road: The Vanderbilts [as an extension southward and westward for their lines; the Goulds, for a northern and eastern outlet to Chicago; the Kansas City, and Quit road for a similar outlet. It is thought that the sale will be completed today—or within a day or two. The road Is no doubt for sale. The President and Manager are all old men and ready to retire from bus! ness. They prefer to dispose of their holdings at the present high price—from 1169 to 8180 [per share rather than risk the management in other hands, and possibly the consequent loss in value by bad management or close compe tition. There has been little repair work done on the road for several years. Its rolling stock has not been kept up to its former high condition. Whoever gets the road, in order to place it in an up to date condition,will have to spend several millions. President Blackstone is quite an old man, in poor health, and does not care to undertake the work himself, nor to risk it in the bauds of others. George Obarlton, the General Passenger Agent, is an old man and ready to retire. 0. H. Ohappell, General Manager, is in poor health, unable to give his personal attention to the road; be is now at Hot Springs, Ark , a sorely afflicted invalid. These are men who have made the Alton what it is. Not one of them is able to continue the work. Tnej are all large ownejs of stock, and control the road. As said above they prefer to sell rather than to (risk the real's interests in the hands of new managers, whom they cannot personally oversee.
