ho says t
Attorn carotul examination of llmwholo
subJccMnm strongly ot tho opinion Hint tho
best Interests of tlio city and also ot tho rail
roads which nro to bo afTected by tho proposed
notion require that a common central station
should bo established at tho nearest ptnctlca
bio point to tho centre of
Tlio ltiisliieH i Interests of I lie City
that this station should bo reached by lines
cither abovo or below tho established grades
of tlio sovoial streets and nvonues which It
may become necessary to occupy or cross and
Hint mo passago oi ino loiomao inver soiuu
ward from tho city should bo mado possible
for all illxm rensonablo conditions It Is to bn
understood howovcr that tho building ot tills
contrnl station should not In any way Interfere
with tho location ot such other depots and
landings as may fromtlmo to time bo round
necossary for tho transaction of tho business
of tho roads or for tho convenlonco of tho locnl
traveling public Iu connection with tho cholco
of location for tho Central depot tho propor
point oi ptssago oi ino roiomac jnier must
nlso bo considered It has been proiiosed nt
illfforcnt times heretofore to cross abovo

ot theso points Is sultnblo for tho passago ot a
Joint line bolng remote nnd Involving difficult
and expensive connections with oxlstlng Hues
of railway Such n selection would In fnct
compel nn unnecessary extension ot tho roads
iniougn what Is now or win become in ino
future n thickly settled and valuable part ot
tho city It would also tuioliu tho necessity
ot crossing tho public pnrktngs between Uio
Executive Mansion and thu rli er
Tho position at Observatoiy Hill Is objit
Unliable as tho slto for a bridge nnd tin
Nltc of tlio Loup Itrlilec

Its selection will lniolio excessively deep

reasons It nnpears adilsablo to select some

How for tho site It Is neeessaiy to consider
whethor tho approach of tho soiernl railway
linos is Tiractlcablo at a not unreasonnblo ox
penso Ill tbo case nt tho Baltimore V Ohio It
Is projioscd to unite tho two branches or this
road at somo point outsido tho city limits nnd
bring them Into tlio city nt Boundary stteet on

At this point tho city grades fall precipitously

removed nnd tbo road confined totho Hun ot
Virginia and Maryland nienucs Whether
tho Union depot should bo allowed to occupy
tho public laud or bo placed upon prliato
lands condemned for tho purpose Is a question
for Congress to decide Ho therefore recom
mends tho selection or tho depot situ on these
twoaieuuos that the loads luleiestod bo au
thorized to build n Joint lino of four tracked
load westwnid from the Union depot to tho
Long Bridge and onstwaid nloug tho lino ot

from Its Junction with tho B k V road near

trackoiertho louto already given nboio It
Is ostlmatod thnt tho aggregate cost of this
norK win no j iuuuihj
In rogaul totho right ot tho oxlstlng rail
ways to occupy tho present lines ho thinks
somo illfllcultlesmajjirlso Inthocnseof tho B
kp load Congress specially leseried tho
right of revision nnd repeal but no such
reservation appears to hare been mado with
respect to tho other load and thoy may claim
their lights well vested tho chatter lrrcpoal
able and no constitutional power exists to ro
moio Its tracks depots and slut Ions It their
clntm should prove to bo well founded somo
trouble may bo met In removing the existing

In conclusion ho sintes thnt whllo tho loca

ing thoreto which ho has recommonded aro

Hon of business bin lug duo reganl totho
lights ot tho companies luiolvcd ho does not
by any means contend that they are tho only

or that mny moasurcnbly fulllll tho conditions

that tho conflicting interests of tho several

It will require tho Interposition ot aulndo
