RAILWAY MANIA OF 1845.
History cf a Collapse.
Never had there occurred in the ;
history of joint-stock enterprises
such another day as the 30th of
November, 1845. It was the day
on which a madness for specula
tion arrived at its height, to be
followed by a collapse terrible to
many thousands of families. Hall
ways had been gradually becoming
successful, and the old companies
had in many cases bought off, on
very high terms, rival lines which
threatened to interfere with their
profits. I'oth of these circum
stances tended to encourage the
concoction of new schemes.
There is always floating capital
in England waiting for profitable
employment; there are always pro
fessional men looking out for em
ployment in great engineering
works, and there are always
scheming, moneyless men ready to
trade on the folly of others. Thus
the bankers and capitalists were
willing to supply the capital; the
engineers, surveyors, architects,
contractors, builders, solicitors,
barristers and Parliamentary
agents were willing to supply the
brains and lingeis, while too often
cunning schemers pulled the
strings. This was especially the j
case in IS 15, when plans for new
railways were brought forward
literally by hundreds and with a
recklessness perfectly marvelous.
By an enactment in force at
that time, it was necessary for the
prosecution of any railway scheme
in Parliament, that a mass of doc
uments should be deposited with
the Board of Trade on or before.
November 00th, in the preceding
year. The multitude of these
schemes in 1845 was so great that
there could not be found surveyors
enough to prepare the plans and
sections in time. Advertisements
were inserted in the newspapers,
offering enormous pay for even a
smattering of this kind of skill.
Surveyors and architects from
abroad were attracted to England;
young men at home were tempted
to break the articles into which
they had entered with their mas
ters, and others were seduced from
various professions into that of
There were desperate lights in
various parts of England between
property-owners who were deter
mined that their land should not
be entered upon for the purpose of
railway surveying, and surveyors
who know that the schemes of
their companies would be frus
trated unless the surveys were
made and the plans deposited by
November 00th. To attain this
end, fraud, force and bribery were
freely made use of. November
30th, 1845, fell on Sunday; but it
was no Sunday near the office of
the Board of Trade. Vehicles
were driven up during the whole
of the day, with agents and clerks
bringing plans and sections. In
country districts as that day ap
proached, and on the morning of
the day, coaches-and-four were in
greater request than even at race
time, galloping at full speed to the
nearest railway .station. On the
Great Western Uailwey an ex
press train was hired by the agents
of one new scheme; the engine
broke down, the train came to a
stand-still and was run into by an
other express hired by the agents
of a rival project; the opposite par
ties barely escaped with their
lives, but contrived to reach Lon
don at the last moment. On this
eventful Sunday there were no
fewer than ten of these express
trains on the Great "Western Rail
way, and eighteen on the eastern
counties. One railway company
'was unable to deposit its papers,
because another company surrepti
tlously bought for :i higher sum,;
twentv of the necessarv sheets
from the lithographic printer and .
horses were killed in madly run-1
nin- about in search of the miss-
ing documents before the fraud

and printers were bribed by largo' man who wore a conciliatory smile
sums not to finish in proper time j nd a dyed beard, as he took a

nent house brought over 400 litho W. acknowledged that at pies
graphic printers from Belgium, j ent we served and instructed the
and even then all the work ordered j public in that capacity, and. to
could not be executed. Some of !
the plans were only two-thirds j
lithographed, the re-t being filled
up by hand. However executed, j
tke problem wus to get these docu-'
metits to .Whitehall before mid-j
night of November 00th. Two'
guineas a mile were in some in- J
stances paid for post-horses. One'
express steamed up to London, '
118 miles, in an hour and a half! ,
An established company having'
refused an express train to the; to advance the best interests of
promoters of a rival scheme, the j the public; but we" shall expect
latter employed persons to get up ' you to first surprise us with a
