CAPITAL STOCK.

Reference is respectfully made to Table No. 2, for a financial statement, which is as complete as has been furnished this office by the several corporations doing business in this State. Totals are compared with 1887. The amount of capital stock issued is shown to be $287,208,720; per mile of road this capitalization is $52,730. The amount of capital stock for 1888 shows a decrease of $44,759,850 over 1887, caused from the fact that the Atlantic and Pacific did not report capital stock last year.

The total number of stockholders is reported at 787.
