Report of Receivers Discloses Loss of
SIOO,OOO Yearly Since Taken
Over by Government in 1917
,'Gordon C. Carson and \Y. B. Veazey,
recently appointed receivers for the
Gainesville Midland railway, operated
from Athens to Gainesville and from
Belmont to Social Circle Saturday sub
mitted to the federal court their re
port on the condition of the road. The
report in substance, indicates that the
road has been losing about SIOO,OOO
a year since it was taken over by the
government in 1917.
/ The cause of this loss, mainly, is at
tributed to the enormous increase in
salaries and wages granted by govern
ment ; that the entire payroll was about
$84,000 four years ago and had reached
by government increases, the sum of
SIBI,OOO last year.
The receivers suggested cutting the
payroll to $116„000 for the next year.
Judge Beverly Evans, of the federal
court, accepted the suggestion, passing
an order authorizing the desired reduc
tions. Employees are granted five days
to lie their objections.
The report indicates that the gov
ernment owed the road $71,000 un
der the reimbursement scheme; has
paid about SII,OOO, leaving $60,000 due
the road. The court authorized the re
ceivers to adjust the matter with the
government and to pay off wages due

methods of caring for our sick ones

whom we wish to protect, and keep
well, do not need this service. Many
of us have had chances to learn much

not financially able to secure assist
