Uiiitiik Tiik L'itizkn: As one, in con
nection with ninny oilier, interested in
the nilvanecnicnt ol t lie n;rcn of gen
eral improvement of the condition ol' our
ieoplc of the Kccin's creek township, und
of our ncilx"! north nnd south of us in
the country, I was icueslcd to feud a
coniunicution to you couccrniiiK out pro
posed "Utflit Ruilwny" to Asheville. An
upplicution will be nindc to the ItKiala
ture for the clmrter; and that the friends
of the enterprise, here and in Asheville,
nnd elsewhere, will muke every possi
ble effort to cusure its success.
Although the enlargement of the north
ern suburb of Asheville may never reuch
us, it is fair to assume that the great ac
tivity of business enterprise there will
have its wholesome influence iin every
industrial pursuit in the intervening
space nnd in our own neighborhood, us
well as far beyond as. The utility of
suburban rnilways nnd their renumern.
live value to the builders of them have
lieen fairly tested nnd demonstrated. We
are satisfied thnt the traffic over our
wny to Asheville, even now, justifies the
building of the line contemplated. No
hiL'liwav in tne county una so mucu
travel. It is notunfrequcntly noted thnt
more than sixty wagons ana otner ve
hicles tinss durineonc dnv through Wenv-
erville, destined to Asheville. The business
of intervening points must sometimes
largely increase the arrivals mere, anil
the travel by horseback is by no means
inconsiderable. The shipment of tobacco
would for several months each venr af
ford fair profits to the rond, and though
the building of our long expected line to
Rurnsvi lie and northward would cut on
that auniilv of work to be done beyond
our own vicinity, the development of
other sources, the growth ot the village
from its improved connection with Ashe
ville, the enlargement of our college, the
increase of facilities for country resorts,
hnnrdiuir houses, business and pleasure
trips, the necessities of the farming inter
ests, nil would contribute to more then
make amend for the anticipated loss.
The frequent trains, the number ol stop
iiinir noiiits. the cheapness of rate, would
ensure n business thnt the railroad n en-
tioned would neither desire or be able to
restrict or appropriate.
As nn illustration not remote from
fiiet, if this line with its equipment of
roilniB stock, limited at hrst to one en
gine and the necessary cars, might be
built for the sum of $60,000, assuming
the right of way to be given, its gross
earnings need not average more than
$30 per dny for 300 days in the yenr to
enable it to pay, alter deducting operat
ing expenses, seven per cent on us con.
If it be difficult to raise the necessary
money from investors of cash capital, let
our farmers estimate how many acres of
land, or how many cross-ties, or how
much material aid in any shnic they can
afford to give, to be accredited to them
as stock, for the consideration of being
within a hnll hour a tourney ol tne city,
the county sent; the trip safe ind com
lortnble nt all seasons: the absence from
home a couple ol hours iustend of n half
orawnoicnay; tne saving . expeoac
incident, etc., etc.
To the man who makes a weekly ride,
the railway secures if he spends the day,
fifty-two days service of his horse at
home during tlie year, nnd not less than
a whole month for himself. To the
driver of a team of two the saving of
time is doubled and his wagon put to
better nse at home. The dairyman and
truck-gnrder eight miles from market
mnv compete with his rival who lives
only two miles away, nnd have the ad
vantage ol cheaper laud, i ne lumper
and fuel that dues not now hear trans
portation could find a cbenper carriage
than the ordinary railroad affords, and
the numberless smnll warcsol the farmer.
and economic makings and savings of
the housewitc would be marketed in a
way more to their liking and nt less cost
over the home road.
Many cottaires would he built and oc
cupied along the way, by those whose
oevnpnuon in town rniuic it hiw.u.c n.iu
prclerable to liuve country nomes. aii
the usual results of the establishment ol
suburban railroads would successfully
upK.'ar, to the enhancement ot tlie gen
eral corolort and prosperity of the com
munity nnd the Iwncnt oi tne ronu.
The figures assumed in the note of illus
tration ure not taken at random, but
are based upon .the supposition that tlie
line should be of such grade and curva
ture as to make it approximately n sur
face road, and its gauge that of tlw
standard railway and the weight of mil
forty-five pounds per yard. Such a line
might he built for Irssmoncr nnd answer
the purpose. The present 'and prospec
tive business being assured from fair
data, there is a certain weight of
engine, and therelore weight of rail, that
will satiny its reiutremenis, ncprnucm
upon the maximum grade adopted, and
thnt dependant UMin the justifiable cost
of tlie grading, to he determined by
actual survey. Since the streets ol Ashe
ville arc already occupied oy inc electric
railway, it has been suggested that this
line shall make connection with it at
some suitable point for transfer offreight
cars and delivery of passengers to destin
ation. The cost of operation it for one engine
only, as being at first necessary with a
limited number of cars of each kind, nnd
the reouieitc number of train men in
cluding one agent at ench end of tlie road
and one manager of the business of the
company, Tne pay assumed is not
targe, tint sumctent to ensure competent
service for the duties required.
The weight of rail mar seem excessive.
and mlulit indeed be reduced, but true
economy In building even light railroads
dors not bruin witn cutting aown toe
rail section, and the standard gauge of
track is for many reasons tne nest, in
the event of the building of the originally
contemplated railroad through this sec
tion, ana under tne restriction oi umiiea
means, this railway would easily, and
perfectly, sftord all the usual employ
ment of rolling stock for construction,
including track laying, from Wenvervillc
as a temporarily initial point. Freight
consumed by car load to parties In Weav-
ervilkt would require no break of
bulk at tlie Asheville depot, and for sim
ilnr frcluht with destination beyond
Asheville tne railroad company i cars
could be brought to this point for nn-
Helerrlnii once more to the statement
of possible cost, for the estimation of
which tne re was no instrumental guine,
I mnv any that it was made from aa
Itemised account of what seemed a fair
allowance of work at reasonable figures
for the contractor, and the item oi opera
ting expenses, which, deducted from the
DToas earnings (nut in the Illustration
Sir the benefit of those who may wish to
form some positive idea of the shape of
this enterprise at fw.ow per annum i
leave a balance as dividend to share
holders, was based on a most liberal or
lowaacasf locomotive expense, ioctuding
engineer and fireman, aad such allow
ance for other items as seemed certainly
sufficient for a beginning.
As before intimated the rate of grade
determines, to a large extent, the cost of
grading. The preference hns been given
in this case to a good rail and good ties,
nnd it is not probable that the grade nec
essary will exceed or equal that of many
vumirimn and dummy lines tnat pav
well for their construction.
In closing this article I give a quota
tion from remarks made a few years ago
on this subject by tbs present editor of
the engineering News, a journal oi world
wide celebrity, whose opinions onnllpro
lesaional subjects are received with the
highest respect, and accepted genernllv
ns authority. Sneuking of light railways
and civinu caution ugninst certain er
rors that so easily may lie fallen into he
s i v in the outset : " The apparent held
for them is greut many times greater
than lor railways of the ordinary tvc.
The need lor them is keenly felt in many
regions where it would upiieiirasifchciip
light lines would answer every require,
meat which the tariff justifies.
"Such lines can nilmittterliv lie built.
and ill many cases have licen liuill. both

pike; some of them even lollowing the
I i. : i :i..
lumpiKC, using mw cc., i.ii.a
light rolling-stock, sharp curves, und lit'
tie or nn grading lieynnd a mere smooth
ing of the surface."
And this is the iirrnnible. so to siienk
used hetnrc an exhaustive nruument
against the injudicious establishment of
lines of tooindistinctivelv litht character.
since the constant and strong tendency of
all such lines is toiipproxininte to tlie gen
eral standard from the proper develop
ment of business.
Trusting your sympathy with all our
local interests tor vour toriicnrance witn
the length of this article, 1 am resjiect
