"It is my boliof that a revolu
tion in tho matter of railway con
struction and travel is near at
hand. I bcliovo that with new
and improved methods of con
struction, and with tho use of now
will bo immonsoly increased.
Electricity will take tho plco of
steam and a singlo track will take
the place of tho present double

hour is the very limit of Bpocd,
150 milts nn hour, and possibly
more wmn umi, will UO aitainou

them. It may bo thought that
such a prophecy is ohimerical.but
assurodly it is no moreohimoncal
ut this day than was the telegraph,
tho telephone or tho Pteum mil

So much for the iutufo: I have
ventured it ns tho propheoy of a
man who can remomher when
there wero almost no railroads
and no telegraph and no tolo

bo nt and tho immedinto futuro wo
find that Californians have their
interest centered in one groat
railroad enterprise tho San Joa
quin Valley lino. This is dis
tinctly and peculiarly a California
enterprise, started by California
capital, engineered and promoted
by California brains and skill,
built by California workmon of
California material, and to bo
oporated for the benefit of Cali
fornia producors and oitizons.
My investments in tho San
Joaquin Valley Bailrnad, and I
think those of most of tho gontle
men associated with mo In that
enterprise, wero prompted by two
motives chiefly. Thpso wero tho
need of tho State for further and
competing transportation facili
ties und the belief that such in
vestments would in the ond
prove profitable. These motives
still hold good. They havo been
indorsed by tho press and the
public gonorally, and now tho

futuro but is porforming abund

will bo pushod rapidly as far
