MUCH RAILWAY BUILDING
Diverse views expressed by E. H.
Harriman and James J. Hill as to the
amount of competitive railroad build
ing to be done in the near luture nae
given rise to no end of discussion
among railroad men. Many of the
most experienced and the most prac
tical of this class are strongly of the
opinion that whether regarded as
competitiev or not, the next few years
will see a great deal of new construc
tion work accomplished. The needs of
the country, they say. demand it and
new roads are certain to lie supplied.
The great west has outgrown its pres
ent railroad capacity and its impera
tive call for enlarged facilities to
handle its commerce cannot be ig
nored nor neglected.

If comparison is made with popula

iu railroad facilities, in the last ten
or twelve years. In 18i3 the, number
of miles of railroad for every 10,000
inhabitants was 20.39. In 1903, it
was 26 03. It must be remembered
that these figures take in the whole
country, but It has been In the terri

the greatest development has taken
place. In sections of New England

than nroaresslon, but the great west

years were supposed to be barren and
