PREFACE
THIS book deals with those questions of railroad history and management which have become matters of public concern. It aims to do two things : first, to present clearly the more important facts of American railroad business, and explain the principles involved ; second, to compare the railroad legislation of different countries, and the results achieved.
The two things need to be viewed in connection with one another. The attempt to manage railroads without regard to the demands of public policy, or to legislate concerning railroads without regard to the necessities of railroad business, results in disastrous failure. This fact has been gradually recognized by thoughtful men on both sides. But it has been hard to get any comprehensive view of the subject in its different aspects. The brilliant book of C. F. Adams, Jr., stands almost alone; and even this treats of but a few questions among many. The man who would really study the subject, must seek his material among hundreds of different arguments and reports ; many of them extremely able, but few of them easy of access, and still fewer at all complete in themselves.
It was to meet this want that the author first undertook to deliver a course of lectures on Railroads and the Social Problems connected with them. Part of the material of these lectures is here presented to the public.
One of the pleasantest things in the whole work has been the cordial help which the author has uniformly received from men, in all positions, to whom he has had occasion to apply for information. Special acknowledgments are due to Mr. S. Wright Dunning, of The Railroad Gazette, for constant suggestions with regard to the work, as well as for the ready permission to use material which has appeared, both signed and unsigned, in the columns of his
journal.
