NARROW GAUGE ROADS.

[blocks in formation]

The increased mileage is 2,351.96.

The increased indebtedness is $26,118,183.84, from which deduct decreased indebtedness, $1,435,122.65, and we have a net increase of $24,683,060.69, or $10,494.68

The increase is not all new mileage, but represents lines purchased.

The increase of earnings over previous year was $2,833,968.91; the decrease was $1,429,371.75, or a net increase of earnings of $1,411,597.16. The greatest decrease in earnings is the Wabash, St. Louis & Pacific road, which we suppose either in 1883 or 1884 was reported erroneously. This is another illustration of the reports made to this office without proper attention or intelligent supervision from the officers making the returns.

MAILS,

The returns do not give the amount received for transportation of mails in the State. From data furnished we estimate it at $752,959.24. This will be reduced by whatever is paid for receiving and delivering them.
