CONSTRUCTION OF RAILWAY.
Small Amount of Building; the Fast Year. Some Coinnarative Statements of an Instructive Nature, The aClTect or the Panic on the Business. Th* Destination of the Koada—The Present Mileage, The Railway Age: The year now closing baying been memorable as a year of financial calamity bae natur ally also been a period of comparatively Bmall railway building. The country ie not by any means yet supplied with all needed railways. Many hundreds of practicable lines have been projected and will eventually be built, but capi tal has learned tbat railway investments are beset with many dangers and uncer tainties, and so when hard times come new enterprises of this kind are among the first to suffer from inability to raise money. Although it was evident be fore 1893 opened tbat the pace of pre ceding years would not be maintained In railway building, yet work was soon in progress on a sufficient number of lines to make it probable that t he year's total of new track would reach 3000 or 8600 miles. But the July panic put a sudden Btop to a number of lines on which work had been actively progress ing and caused serious delay in others, so that the end of the year linds tuany unfinished lines on which much work haß been done, and leaves the total of new mileages less than for any twelve months in the last I7years. Our records show that the new main track laid in the United States in 1893 aggregates 2630 milee on 222 linen in 43 of the states and territories ; alsb that in Canada 461 miles have been built on 16 lines, and in Mexico 99 miles on 5 lines. The summary for me different states is as . followi: No. State.'' Lines. Miles. Alabama 5 40. Ar zona 1 42.

Miles. Canada 16 461.17 Mexico 5 99 45 The wide distribution of these 2630 miles of new track is noteworthy. Only live of our states and territories—Ver mont, Connecticut, Delaware, Nevada and Indian territory—show no addition whatever, but several of the states added from only one to five miles each, and the entiye 222 miles give an aver age of less than 12 miles to each road. Pennsylvania leads with 399 miles on 45 lines, followed by Florida with 212 miles on nine lines, North Dakota 194, milee on two lines. Georgia 173 miles on seven lines, Texas 166 miles on 10 lines, Ohio 146 miles on seven lines, etc. In respect to greatest total mileage the or der of tbe states is not materially changed, Illinois still standing at the bead, with 10,427 miles, Pennsylvania is second with 9558 miles, and Texas third with 9206 miles. The new mileage of 1893 is lees by about 2000 miles than either of the two preceding years and is much smaller than that of any year since 1878, when the total was only 2679 milee. But in the four bard years from 1874 to 1877 inclusive the additions were still less, going as low as to 1111 in 1875. The lowest point reached since 1878 was in 1885, when only 3131 mileß were built, but in tbe following year the new mile age leaped to 8128 miles, and in 1887 it reached the extraordinary total of about 18,000 miles. Notwithstanding the great falling off in activity in tbe last four or live years, the past ten years have seen an addition of 56,398 miles, or an aver age of about 5640 miles a year, while in the 20 years since 1873 no leaa than 107, --685 miles were built, the average in crease being 5379 miles per year. The present railway mileage of the United States, according to our record, ie 177,853 milee. It will require only an average increase of 3164 miles for the next seven years to bring the total at the beginning ol the year 1900 to 200,000 miles, while if the rate of the last 20 years is averaged, the total will then be over 215,000 miles. In view of the im mense area of our country which is still to be supplied with railways, it seems hardly possible that any year in the near future will show bo small a con struction record as 1893. There are en terprises already under way sufficient to greatly increase this figure for 1894, if only ordinary commercial conditions again prevail and legislative harass ment of railway investments is sus pended. The Northern Pacific. 8. F. Chronicle: T. H. Goodman, general paeeenger and ticket agent ol the Southern Pacific, received a telegram from Tacoma yesterday stating that the Canadian Pacific had put in a new rate of $40 first class end $36 second class from Sound points to St. Paul, and a first-class rate of $47 to Chicago. These rates are applicable by way of the Cana dian Pacific and the "Soo" line. In speaking of (bis rate Mr. Goodman declared chat it did not mean the be ginning of a railroad war. The Union Pacific, tbe Great Northern and North ern Pacific bad agreed to go back to the old figure, after which the Canadian Pa cific announced that it would make a rate. The restoration of the old figure of $71.60 from Portland to Chicago made it possible to go from San Francisco to Chicago via Portland for less money, the rate being on tbe limited first-class, $57 between San Francisco and Chicago. The three northern lines, Mr. Goodman thought, would probably make a rate of | $50 from Portland and Bouud points to j Chicago. This witb the present rate would give the Canadian Pacific the differential, which it has insisted upon having. As it is, if local rates were charged in addition to the through rates now in force between Portland and Chicago, the fare from San Francisco would be $91.50 instead of $57. But the Southern Paoiiic insists that tbe rate via its Shasta route shall not exceed that on the Ogden or j Sunset routes. Notes. Traffic Manager Leeds states tbat the tirst bouue fur the North American Nav igation company will certainly be made, cays the San Francisco Chronicle. The amount now subscribed is $92,000, and a little time and effort will insure tbe $8000 still needed. Tue North American Navigation company is willing to allow tbe Traffic association an extension of time in which to secure the remaining portion of the bonus needed. A meeting was held yesterday for the election ol the directors of tbe North American Nav igation company, but it was decided to defer the vote until Friday next. Applications for annual passes are still coming in at Fourth and Townsend streets. Vice-President Crocker stated yesterday that about one-half as many passes would be issued this year aa weie issued during 1893. Au application for annuals came yesterday Irom four offi cials of the Brownstone and Middietown and Middietown Railroad company. This is a Pennsylvania line, and the system comprises two and a half miles of track. The officials offered to exchange courte sies with the Southern Pacific if the passes were granted. There are applica tions handed in, however, that exceed tbe modesty of this one. Several rail roads which exist only on paper have, through tbeir officials, asked lor annual passes. General Superintendent Fillmore of the Southern Paeiflc and Vice-President Hurrahan of the Illinois Central left yesterday for Monterey and Santa Cruz. A canard was telegraphed day before yesterday from San Francisco about A. N. Towne resigning from the Bervice of the Southern Pacific, and the conse quent promotion of a number of the other officials, including Division Super intendent Muir. There is nothing in the resignation story, but if anyone is promoted it is more than liable to be Mr. Muir. The electric street railway company have decided to issue transfers between the electric and cable railways at Firet and Spriug streets. The electric road bas stopped issuing free transportation,and in consequence a I great many people are walking who | walked very little last year. The cable I and electric companies had together ! nearly 800 passes out last year. Each i pass is estimated to mean a revenue of I $50 a year if not issued, so that the stoppage of the 800 passes means an in creased revenue of $40,000. The nickels count up very fast. DEATHS AND BIRTHS. Keoord for Los Angeles for the K.aat Month. The report of Health Officer Powers for the month of December was based on a population of 65,000, just as in the past months of 1893. The total deaths from all causes was 115, which made a rate per 1000 of 21.22. During the month there were 72 birtbs, of which 69 were white and 3 colored. The deaths in the public institutions were as follows: County hospital, 9; French hospital, 1; Sisters' hospital, 3; St. Paul's hospital, 2; receiving hospi tal, 2. Of the deaths 24 were of people wbo had been in the city, less than one year. The coroner certified to 14 deaths. During tbe month the following con tagious diseases were reported: Diph theria, 7; scarlet fever, 13; typhoid fever, 3, making a total of 23. The mortality of the city by wards was as follows: First, 9; Second, 22; Third, 12; Fourth, 15; Fifth, 3; Sixth, 5; Sev enth, 14; Eighth, 17. NOT UP TO SPECIFICATIONS. Union Avenue Property Owners Reclster a Kick. Prperty owners on Union avenue are not at all eatisded with the street im provement that haß been done en Union avenue, between Eleventh and Pico streets. Several of them filed a document yes terday to come before the council, ask ing that the work be not accepted. As reasons for their request, tbey Bay tbat tbe work is not up to the specifi cations. They claim that it has not been leveled up and rolled; also tbat at the intersection of Twelfth street and Union avenue a sink has been left on the west side which prevents the -water from running off.

The Supreme Court FlDda That the Superior Court of Ban Diego Has Exceeded Its Ju risdiction. The following opinion wp.s received yeßterday, in which the supreme court annuls the order of tbe superior court of San Diego county, adjudging Julia V. Stewart and W. B. Prentice guilty of contempt for dieobedience of its judg ment, in response to their application for a writ of review, which was recently heard in San Francisco: It appears tbat tbe petitioners, Julia V. Stewart and W. B, Prentice, entered into a contract witb one Hill, whereby they agreed to deliver to the latter or hie executors, representatives and as signs, at a certain point on the line of their pipe, water, not to exceed 10 miner's inches, in perpetual flow, under a four-inch pressure, lor a term of 20 years. Thereafter Hill sold and as signed all bis rightß, under the contract, to one J. VV. Sefton, who construced a pipe line extending from tho point mentioned in the contract to his ranch, and thereupon demanded of Stewart and Prentice that he be allowed to make a direct connection be tween his pipe and their pipe line, and to divert from the flume two inches of water. This demand was refused, it being claimed that he had no right to make such connection, whereupon Sef ton instituted an action againßt Stewart and Prentice, in which he prayed that they be enjoined from interfering with him in effecting a connection with his pipe with their conduit, and for $1000 damages. Accordingly a temporary in junction was issued, which was after wards, upon motion of defendants, dis solved, and Sefton was ordered to de tach his pipe, which he had connected with defendant's conduit during the pendency of the temporary injunction. This case was tried upon its merits and judgment entered in favor of plaint iff, awarding him $1 damages and the right to make the connec tion prayed for. It wae fur ther decreed that defendants desist and refrain from interfering witb plaint iff in connecting his pipe with their pipe line, and thereafter, for a period of 25 years, in any manner interfering or pre venting the flow of two miner's inches of water from their pipe. Immediately after the entry of this judgment deferju ants perfected an appeal, but plaintiff, notwithstanding the fact that notice of appeal had been served and an under taking given, entered on defendants' premises, cut into tbeir pipe and con nected his own pipe therewith. Under the advice of counsel that the perfecting of tbe appeal stayed all proceedings, the defendants severed tbe connection; but plaintiff ajrain cut tbeir pipe and made another connection, which was broken by defendants, who were thereupon cited to show cause before tbe superior court, and after a hearing adjudged guilty of contempt. The supreme court holds, however, that the appeal taken by defendants operated as a supersedeas against the judgment in co far as it authorized the plaintiff to connect its pipe with that of defendants, and that the court below ex ceeded its jurisdiction in adjudging de fendants guilty of contempt.
