Tersed by their lines, in referring to
this work in the South says:
"In no section of the country, more
than in the South, have these efforts
to awaken the people to a realization
'of the great wealth which lies dor
imant through a lack of proper devel

'on. The prime mover in that section! j
of the country 'has been the Southern1
railway ani perhiaps no single man in
the history of railway development
bas performed so effective work along (
these lines as has the president of
.that great system. For years Mr..
'Fin]ey's faith and enthusiasm in the
ability of the South to take advantage!e
of its vast resources, has never way-i
ered. Through his untiring efforts
he has been responsible for no small I
part of that enthusiasm and. confi- '1
dence which is now prevailing in that j
section of the country and which c
means so much for future develop

'"The enthusiasm with which nine
'thousand delegates to the Southern i
-commercial congress held last week (
* in Atlanta and who represented every
important trade organization in the.
Southern States, greeted every ex
pression of confidence in the South's
future was a revelation to the big3

"South, well informed men in that sec
'tion will not deny that the effective
educational work of the railroads has
proved no small factgr in brigin g
about the present highly encouraging
conditions. If the value of sueni work
was more fully recogni ed an 1 appre
