Pennsylvania is taking an important

step that, in the opinion of the New

Rlailroad traveling has become so general
and so perfect that the com.non high
ways of the land are largely overlooked.

The 1?hiaway Ago recently published
a clever article by Joseph 0. Kerbert,
United States Consul at Para, Brazil.
The subject of the article is "Railroad
ing in Brazil," but its objbet relates
more particularly to that vast alluring
phantasy of ebullient statesmanship
known as the "Pan-American Railroad."
This might better be tormed the Tright
R~opo Air Line, for it is proposed to
bridge the valleys and tunnel the peaksa
of the Andes, traversing the great water.
shed of South America by balancing the
road-bed on the knife-edge of mountain
tops. Aside from the facts that such a
railroad would cost a thousand times
more than an ordinary road simply to
lay the rails, that an ocean steamship can
carry freight faster and cheaper than a
freight train, that the major p~ortion of
the country to be traveled has no p~opu
lation worth the name, Mr. Korbort
gives as a peculiar obstacle to railroads
in Brazil that they must tunnel the
forests and a new p~athi must be opened
after every train, because "the dense
growth of vegetation is so rapid that a
p~ath cut in the morning is overgrown In
the night." Thh~i last fact settles the
