The net increase of capital stock is $6,926, 114. The increase of the capital stock of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Ry., of $6,517,300, was made by issuing 3,590 shares of Preferred
Stock in exchange for bonds, amounting to $359,000.00 and by issuing 61,583 shares of Common Stock for exchange or purchase of stock of the Milwaukee & Northern R. R. Co., amounting to $6,158,300.00. The increase of the St. Paul & Northern Pacific R. R. Co., of $750,000.00 was issued to pay for terminal facilities as stated in the report of the company.

STOCK, DEBT AND CURRENT LIABILITIES.
In table XIII a condensed statement of the capital stock, debt and current liabilities, is given, as reported by the various companies on pages 25 and 27 of the respective reports. It appears from this table that the capital stock is $23,872,769 less in 1891 than in 1890; that the funded debt is $17,800,378 more in 1891 than in 1890 and that the current liabilities are $3,831,524 more in 1891 than in 1890. The discrepancy shown by comparing this table with the foregoing table which shows a net increase in stock of $6,567,300, is explained as follows: The Northern Pacific Co. report this year $24,940,069 less stock than last year. On inquiry why this is so, the general auditor of the company says: "That the $24,940,069 represents the stock of certain branch roads operated by this company under traffic contract, but the possession of which has practically passed to the Northern Pacific R. R. Co., by the exchange of the bonds of these roads for Northern Pacific R. R. Co.'s Consolidated Mortgage Bonds. In the report for the year ending June 30, 1890, the cost of these roads appears in the item $124,951,500 on page 25."
Then, again, the stock of the St. Paul & Northern Pacific R. R. Co. was last year counted twice, first in the N. P. report and then separately in the report of the St. P. & N. P. R. R. Co., to the commissioners and the stock of the C. St. P. M. & O. Ry. was placed at $50,000 too much last year in the same table.
