Changes on Pennsylvania.
Fioin rittsbuiK comes the follow Inn
story: "What Is said to bo the most
Important all-round change anions
lullioud olllclals within the decade
v. Ill b" anommueil after a meelliiK of
directors of the Pennsylvania Uallroad
company. In Philadelphia, on Wednes
day. It will bcKlu with President A.
.1. Cassatt and ti on down the line
to below division .supedlntendents. All
lines between New Yoik and Chicago
will be Included.
"Mr. C'lssal'l will ivtlie u presi
dent. It Is wild, and S. M. Prevost. now
lliild Vice piesldent will be elected to
the presidency. John P. (liven, first
lee president, will retain his piesent
pooltiou. hut with this exception, there
will be promotions all ulonB the line.
The object of the retirement of Mr.
Cassatt, it is said. Is to enable him
to accept a new ofllee to be eieated.
This will be the chairmanship of the
executive committee to direct the man
UKement or the properties that have
lecently come under the contiol of the
"The company has recently pur
chased u sufficient amount of the Bal
timore anil Ohio ami other roads to
obtain a representative on the boards
of its former ilvuls. The Vnnder
bilts are said In have become simi
larly interested In the same roads.
"At the same time Mr. Cassatt will,
i! Is said, resign the presidency of
the Pennsylvania company, which is
the lessee of the lines West, and the
vacancy will probably be tilled by the
election of James Mci'rea, now (list
vice president. This will permit of the
advancement of the second and third
vice presidents of the lines West. The
vacancy In the third vicepresldeney
will be tilled. It is said, by the pro
motion of I.. V. t.oree, of Pittsburg,
now general manager. Mr. I.oree's
successor will probably be either A. M.
Schoyer, superintendent of the Eastern
division, of Pittsburg, for the Wayne
and Chicago road, or (i. 1.,. Potter,
general superintendent of motive
"The changes will constitute the,cll
miix or plans which have been under
t onsideration ever since the decision
of the Supremo court, declaring the
famous Joint Traffic association an Il
legal combination. After thut decis
ion the great railroad llnanclers of the
country were forced to devise a plan
which would be legal and yet accom
plish the object of the various asso
ciations. They decided upon the pur
chase of an Influential if not control
ling interest in the various systems,
and, having completed the acquisition,
they are closing up the details."
It Is proper to add that this story is
llatly denied by the Pennsylvania offi
cials. Pennsylvania Steel Company.
It is understood that the long-pending
negotiations for the reorganization
of the Pennsylvania Steel company
have been concluded.
According to good authority, there
will be u new company formed, with
a capital of $.10,000,000, to take over
the old property anil conduct its busi
ness in the future. The charter, which
was issued by the state of New Jersey,
Is said to be very liberal, and will
afford an opportunity to take up all
the lines of business In which It Is
necessary lor a modern iron und steel
plan to engage.
The capital stock of $,".0,000,000 will
consist of $i!3,oui),ooi) common ami J-.',-COO.OOO
preferred stock, for which the
present holdeis of Pennsylvania Steel
Mitires will have an opportunity to
subscribe on a basis which It Is ex
pected will yield a proilt.
There will be a large amount of this
stock retained In the treasury of the
company for the various purposes. The
stock will be fully paid up und will
lint be assessable.
Engines for France.
Forty locomotives have been com
pleted at the Hnldwin Locomotive

A ypar ago the linn iccelved nn or
der for an engine from the Paris and
Ijynns railway. It was stipulated that
It should have outside cylinders und
nil the dlstlmitlvo eharneterlstlcs of
the American type, including pilot, or
cow catcher." headlight and bell, all
of which wero Innovations,
This engine uniformed splendidly. It
hauled till tlm fast trains om iliu Paris
und Lyons road on better time, and
with n savlnc of nearly 40 per cent,
in the cost of repalis. Then the
French mechanical superintendents
decided that they had onough of the
stiff and ungainly English locomotives
which had been their model. Hence
the placing of this lurgo order,
Muy Abandon Tickets.
There Is a possibility that beforo
long railroad tickets may be aban
doned entirely, and the conductors au
thorized to collect money on the
trains for each division or part of a
UlvUlon traveled over. At present the
ticket pi luting hus become ono of
the. most expensive features of the
passenger departments, nnd such tick
ets enable the scalpers to beat tho
railroads'. Large sums of money are
spent In lighting the brokers, compli
cated organisations or trafflo issocja
tlons with nn ononnblin expense ftro
entailed by the necessity for protect
ing tickets and millions of idollars dr
spent for safety paper nnd alt the mis
cellaneous work made necessary by
the use of mileage books and card
All this Is done simply to prevent
conductors from handling money, and
yet for every dollar In cash stolen by
a conductor, $50,000 Is spent In ticket
affairs. At the same lime, the con
ductors are subjected to a close and
costly system of surveillance, requir
ing the services of thousand of de
tectives, are required to carry dupli
cate receipt pads and turn in the most
accurate of receipt blanks, as an
army of ticket nccouhtants, tlckot
clerks, etc., Is required.
Fifty million dollars Is spent every
year on the railroads of tho United
States to save a possible $50,000 that
might by lifted by a few dishonest
