THE FORTY-FIRST PARALLEL RAILROAD AND CHEAP
A feuc facts supplemental to the memorial and bill in behalf of the Forty
first Parallel Railroad, now before Congress.
To the honorable the Congress of the United States :
Cheap transportation has become the controlling subject of public interest, not only with the producers of the West, but also with the consumers of the East and South. Many conventions have been held during the past two years, and party politics has been made to hinge on opinions entertained on the subject. It has been forced also into the legislative acts of several of the Western States. Capital has become alarmed, and declines further investments under such political embarrassments, and hence the suspension of public improvements, the stagnation of business, and the consequent suffering in our manufacturing districts. The industries of the nation have ceased to thrive, and discontent is wide spread in this land of plenty. Labor, as well as capital, has no reliable employment, and in the midst of plenty a large portion of our population is at the point of want and starvation.
This subject has also been pressed upon the attention of Congress, and to Congress the people now look for such practical schemes as will secure the desired results. Capital awaits the issue. Owing to the zeal heretofore manifested by Congress, this subject can hardly be waived now. The people are in earnest, and the necessity for detinite action is too pressing to be relegated to the people and to their future elections with impunity.
In addition to the argument and memorial on behalf of the Forty-first Parallel Railroad, the following summary of facts may be worthy of consideration in any measures of practical legislation on the subject :
