Th* I nion Pacifie In Good Condition, Abl* Ut l ay It* Debts and Not Damaged by It ranch Linos—Th* Government’s Kerurity on the Central Pacific Inadequate. Wakhinoton, Feb. 17. —The special coen-mittie on Pmifii' railroads, after many hearings, through in vex ligation and <-a reful consideration. finally Benefited the rejiorU of Henator Fry* on the Union Pacific, and Senator I tavi«.' on tin* Central Pacific, and agreed to a bill whi<*h will be rejiorteii b> the senate to-day. The re|*»rt on Hie Union Pa< ■ I fie rea* he* the following <-<inclusitNn>: That the |M»li«*y of building or acquiring braix-h line* wan wine and through the period coverer I by theiir inquiry, honestly and erononiP'any carried out. Tlrnt the main line has derived an immense advantage from the brandies, aral there is no foundation for tile charge that the latter ha va received uitdie* teiieflt from »xaukru<*tiva mileage or otherwise at the ex {tense of the main linen. That Ila* building of the Oregon Short I Jim*, ami the Mitmequent ai ii iii ret lieut of the Oregon Railway alai Navigation conqtany's lines, instead of being a meiuu-e to the interest of the government, have firoved to Ii* a decided (ulvaiitaga. That the rer-eut conw»li«lation of several bran- bes, under the name of th* Oregon Short lane and Utah Northern Railway company, simplifies the system of tim Union Pacific, makes {Mtssibla a more efTectiva and •coiiofiiical govcniiiient, and in no regard evidences any piirjMme of evailing the oltliga-tiotis to the government. That the branch***, instead of king main taiiHsl at the ex{s*ns»-of the main line, contribute at least $.‘i,(JOO,OPU a year to the Ireasury of the <oiu|iany. That the I rn [trove* (kent* have liaen for several years J ast greater on the main line than oil the branches, some of them very important ami ex {tensive, like tile Splendid shops now in pro*mw of eret*tion at Cheyenne, the flue stat i«hi tlwre just com|tle!e*i. ami the sta Don ami hotel at (igd**n. That there is no evidence of any [turjtoHa •ii the {art of the <ofii[any to Mirremier that [■ortPm of th**ir roa*l over which the government im* a statutory lien; on the contrary, every av idem* a is shown tending to satisfy any candid [lensm that no such pur[*i«e ax isis. That this is a callable, well managed road, abundantly able to |«tr its debts, requiring only, like other railroads, time in which to pay. That the present management is honestly trying to «*lf****t a fair adjustment with tile government. That the interest* of the government and of the railw ay conqiaiiy will Ie promote*! by a settlement; and that one can now la made under which every dollar of the government d* bt, with interest, will tie {aid. THE DOY KRX lf ICN TS HK CUK TTY. It finds the present security to Ut statutory line on a road commencing three mike w*-st of tile Missouri river, extending to a point five link's west of Ogden, and on another road <-oui Ute (icing one--half nill# west of Kansas City ami extending to a {smit Oiiies westerly, commem mg iii a prairie and eliding in one; not enough to protect the government debt, if it shul! not lie adjusted until It become* due w ithin ♦-‘VO HOI).OHO; while under the bill to Ie re|**rted the security obtains! w ill Ie tw ice the government del* in Value aud the [siymeuts according to the terms of the bill at**olutely certain. TOK CENTRAL PACIFIC. The ref sui on the Central Pacific finds that the United .State* has for security a statutory lien on a road commencing at a [sunt five niiics west of Ogden and extending to Nan J*ise, w iih«ait terminal facilities at either end, ma*Ie subject to a n»ortgage to secure I km id • equally amount to the original indebtedness of the conqianieN to tile United States; ti ult that portion of th** road fnan Ogden to the westerly slope of the Sierra Nevada* is piHcticaUy wily a bridge, without any local business of any amount; that the roads reaching from tie* main line into Ne va* ta do not ii**vv pay their actual excuses; that the [(recent security of tile United State* u[*>n this projierty is entirely inadequate; that a fora-cl' sure of th** first mortgage wKuld sul(*tan-tially exhaust, in satisfaction thereof, the entiiv profierty. and that it would he inex-fs'dicnt for the I’nitol States to redeem it from Haiti first mortgage, or to become the owner of the profierty through roieuqition and f<ire**kwure. THE TIME KMOl l.D BK EXTENDED. Tie- re{-ort finds tliat it is expedient, itecvw-nnry ami practicable to adjind aud further ■cetin* the indebted nae* to the United Staten ujsm extended time ii|mid a re*lu»-e*l rate of interest within tile ability of tile coni|iatiy to |wy, »i|**»n such terms as to advance the de-veiofuiieiit of tile country through which Mud roads [(as* and affor*i tile inhabitant* thereof reasonable rat*** **f traiLsportatuai for pas-■engers and freight.
