Ii Complete and Evenly Developed li System Is Outlook. ha sti ROADS HAVE BRIGHT FUTURE S More Transcontinental Lines Than in South America or Asia Are Expect ed Within Course of About Ten Years. Africa already has the foundation for one of the completest and most evenly distributed railway systems of all the great continents of the world, in observes a writer In World Outlook. S, i Save Europe, the railways of all the sa ,other great geographical divisions are largely locatel in certain highly devel- fr oped areas-as in the United States g( and southern Canada in North Ameri- oI ca, while other regions ;re left blan I tl, and promise to remain so, indefinitely in In Africa a vigorous pu-hirng of an.I inl c,nsiderable prolorti fn of the lrojc t.

Railroad Building in Africa. In the imminent ro,mipletion of the Cape-to-Cairo project-a consumma- t tion which will be considerably accel- t ' erated by certain work done during , :- the war-Africa will have a line tra- I - versing Its entire length from north to t south long before any continent but Europe can lay claim to such a rail- t way. The Cape-to-Cairo-with metals , all the way and steamer transport on r Nile and the lakes eliminated-might t easily bring Capetown within ten or twelve days of London and Paris. and a day or two could certainly be cut from even this schedule by a line the SFrench plan to run frotm T: ngier-o-p Sp,:ite U;ibraltar-acros-s the Sahara, : 1ia Iake Tehad and the Belgian Con !1 go, to northern RIhodesia. ; At the outbreak of the war Africa .- had a total of something like 25,3^ miles of completed railway, and was he building new lines at the rate of about 2,000 miles a year. At the firing of the first shot much important construction work was dropped instantly, not to be m resumed until the war is over. This affected what would probably have ron amounted to 4,000 miles of new line that would have been completed In the is two and a half years that war has en lasted so far. Lines for Military Purposes. In This loss Is partially offset by the new construction - purely military .tl- lines for the better prosecution of cer tes tain campaigns-that might not have tes been undertaken for many years had not the war rendered It imperative Ich from a strategic standpoint. Such was ch the linking up of the Union of South Africa system with that of German be- Southwest Africa by Botha in pushing ced his campaign for the conquest of the latter region; and such the running to gether of the rallheads of a brunch e-from the Uganda railroad and the Usambara linte at th.- frontier of Ger man East and British E:ast Africa. Similar construction has also taken Railroad Receipts in Sweden. Due to the vastly increase'd traffic ,wing to the war. the receipts of the Swe 1Ish state railroads for 1916 far exaceded those of any previous year. the a-,regnte amounting to a sum of 150.A)5O)!X kroner, against 11StII,000 kroner for 1915.
