* The earnings and expenses of the Waverly Short Line, 8.7 miles, are included in those of the main line of the Burlington, Cedar Rapids & Northern.
This branch was operated during only six months of the year. In all such cases the amount of earnings, etc., is divided by such part of the mileage as the
length of time the line was in operation is a part of the year; this gives the earnings, etc., per mile for the year.

+ About thirty miles of the fowa Falls Division of the Burlington, Cedar Rapids & Northern was built during the year 1886, and was operated only two
months of the year.

# No report filled for 1886.
$ 37.2 miles of this line was operated only one month of 1886. The remainder of the line was not in operation at the close of the year.
ii This amount is estimated by the company.

TA portion of the Humeston & Shenandoah railroad was transferred, during the year, to the Keokuk & Western (formerly Missouri, Iowa & Nebraska).
The time at which the transfer took place is not given in either

of these companies' reports. Hence the basis for computing the earnings, expenses, etc.,
per mile, is not entirely satisfactory.

** This company fails, as it has previously done, to report separately the operating expenses of its lines in this State. This item is estimated by the
Secretary of State by taking the same percentage of its total operating expenses that its gross earnings in Iowa are of its total gross earnings within and
without the State. The taxes paid in Iowa in 1886 are not reported, and there is no reliable basis for an estimate.

++ This road was operated during only a small portion of the year.

** The report of the Minnesota & Northwestern Railroad Company indicates that none of the 142.79 miles of its main line was operated until November 1, 1886, and that the entire line was operated during the last two months of the year. The estimates of earnings and expenses per mile are made on that basis. The Waterloo & Oelwein branch of this road appears not to have been in operation at any time in 1886.

$$ This company added to the length of its line, in 1886, 13.5 miles. This portion of the road was operated only during the last third of the year.

1 The average amount of earnings and expenses, per mile, of all the railroads in this State, for the year, is based upon the average number of miles of road operated within the State during the entire year.

missioners' Fund for the current year.
