The Science of Railways Fiscal Affairs Collection of Revenue and the Principles Governing it By Marshall Kirkman  Hard Cover 1894, 1896 Illustrated   421 Pages

Organization of the forces that handle the revenue of railways, principles and methods governing the faithful handling of the money or railways, collection of ry revenue, station work, bonding, balance sheet, installing agents, more.
Human nature is pretty much the same everywhere among civilized people; men's weaknesses and virtues are identical; their methods of accomplishing wrong or achieving good are alike. Under similar 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 way. Those who have charge of railway affairs are especially concerned with what the former class will do; the latter gives them no uneasiness. We may know, however, what men will do by what they have done; what methods are needed to keep them in check by the methods that have kept them in check.
This volume is something of a treatise on these subjects. Its object is to throw necessary safeguards around the revenues of railways; to insure the efficient disposition of the funds in the hands of the agents of such carriers. While the mechanical details may not conform to those of every railroad, principles and methods must be substantially the same wherever usages are authoritative and effective.
