Not illustrated. 1896 Excerpt: ...of the State railways during 1894 amounted to $29,504,153.58 and the working expenses were $16,701,731.52, leaving a balance of $12,802,422.06. There was paid out of this latter sum $10,861,831.35 for outstanding debts, pensions, and interest, leaving a net gain for 1894 of $1,940,590.71.

The cars owned by the State numbered 50,528; by the companies, 14,854; total, 65,382; of this total, 6,303 cars were for passengers and 59,079 for the freight traffic. The total number of persons employed in the service of the State railways was 43,768; in the service of the companies, 10,952; total, 54,720. There were 935 stations or stops on the State lines and 434 on the private roads; total, 1,369. The total distance t...
