Human nature is the same everywhere among civilized men. Their weaknesses and virtues are alike, as are their methods of accomplishing good and evil. Under like conditions a given number of men who have to do with Fiscal Affairs will go astray; a given number will keep in the straight and narrow path. Those who are responsible for the Collection of Railway Revenue are especially concerned with what the former class will do. The latter occasions them no uneasiness. We know what men will do by what they have done, and what methods will keep them in check by the methods that have kept them in check. This book is, in a measure, a treatise on such matters, as they affect railway revenue. Its object is to suggest safeguards that may be advantageously thrown around the collection and transmission of such revenues. While the mechanical details suggested will not con-  form to those of many railroads, the principles and methods pointed out are everywhere observed, substantially, where good usages and authoritative and effective methods are employed,
There are many different ways of keeping the accounts of railroads. Some companies require partial returns daily, some weekly, some monthly, These differences are referred to in the book treating of General Fiscal Affairs. Whatever the differences may be, they do not affect the principles that must be observed in handling the earnings of railways in order to secure due responsibility.
While the principles and methods herein outlined have been found to work effectively in the affairs of railway corporations, I do not the less on that account submit them with hesitation to the consideration of those interested in such matters.
