In December last the Board ol Trade of Leaven worth complained to the railroad commissioners of the state of the fact that uo passenger train was being run on the Leavenworth, Topeka ft Southern railroad, which road is operated by Atchison Topeka Santa Fe road, aud asked them to create such a train, and complained severely of the inconvenience necessitated by passengers beiug hauled over said line at a slow rate in a coach simply coupled on to a freight train, which necessarily run very slow. The Board of commissioners at once began investigating the matter, and the estimated cost ol operating such a train, given to them by the Santa Fe road was $2,900 per mouth or $31,900 for the eleven months, and the receipts for the eleven mouths were estimated at $20,427.80. The board also presented an estimate (which is set forth in detail in the opinion) of the cost of operating a passenger train a like distance, from a competent and disinterested engineer, and he fixes the operating expenses at $1,500 per mouth or $16,500 for eleven mouths.

The company estimate the receipts at $20,437,80, and by the operating of such a train, it is plainly seen the margin for the company would be $3,927,80, consequently the board oj railroad commissioners recommeuder that said road put on a passenged train within reasonable time. drum in the overture of the company nigger show.
