RAILWAYS IN 1896.
Railway traffic in this country has reached such vast dimensions that the figures positively baffle comprehension. The official returns show that last year the passengers conveyed by train from place to place in the United Kingdom, exclusive of season-ticket holders, numbered no fewer than 929,770,909. or more than eighteen millions more than were carried in 1894. This vast total is equivalent to nearly four times the entire population of the British Empire, including, of course, India and the Colonies. The total mileage open for traffic was 21,174, and the authorized capital £1,114,686,989, of which £1,001,110,221 was paid up. Passenger traffic yielded, in gross receipts, £37,361,162 ; goods, £44,034,885 ; and all sources combined, £85,922,702. The working expenditure was ^47,876,637.
