HENRY VIKLARD'S ADDRESS-
Oa the Occasion of the Completion
of the Northern Pacific Railroad.
At half pastfive Saturday afternoon
afternoon, the 8tli inst, in the pres
ence of a large assemblage of distin
guished guests, the last spike of the
Northern PaciGc railroad was driven
at Gold Spike station, sixty miles west
of Helena, Montana, on Deer Lodge
river. Over four thousand people
witnessed, the ceremony. After
driving yio spike, Mr. Yillard said:
(JenUhnen:lt is my agreeable duty
and very great pleasure to offer a j
hearty welcome to thi3 distinguished
assemblage on this memorable occa
sion and in these remarkable sur
roundings. To vou. the representa
tives oPforeign nations, the members
of the executive committee, legisla
tive and judicial branches of the Uni
ted States government, the governors
of states and territories, the represen
tatives of the European and American
press, and our gue3ts from abroad and
at home generally, to you, one and
all, I beg to offer, in tho name of the
Northern Pacific Ila'lroad company
profound thanks for your kind pres
ence and participation in this, tho
most important event of our corporate
existence. Our work means the con
quest of new fields for general com
merce and industry. It creates a
new highway between Europe, Amer
ica and Asia. The population of the
slates and territories traversed by ur
road is largely made up from the Eu
ropean nationalities represented here.
We deemed it fit and proper, there
fore, to bid, so to speak, both the old
md the new world to this celebration,
or, in other words, to arrange a sort
of international festival. Many of
ou have crossed the ocean, and all
have traveled a great distanco in order
to be with us to-day. Be pleased to
accept my assurance that we gratefully
appreciate your sacrifice of time and
comfort. In return we earnestlv wish
to do our guests all possiblo honor and
to give them all possible pl;asure,
and we trust that this transcontinen
tal journey has been and will be an
unalloyed enjoyment to them. We
hope, moreover, that as in this hour a
now and indissoluble bond will be
formed between the countries to the
east and to tho west of these Rocky
mountains, this gathering may also
strengthen the ties of good will and
friendship between the republic of
Korth America and the parent coun
tries of Europe.
Thanks to the foresight of President
Thomas Jefferson, well nigh four
score vears ago. Lie wis and Ulark
toiled through these mountains as'thc
first explorers of Anglo-American ori
gin, and luted tne veil that Did trom
civilized mankind the regions watered
by tho upper Missouri, the Yollow-
stone, the Columbia and their tribu
taries. The exploits of theso fear
less and gifted men were the rich
germ, the full fruition of which wc
celebrate this day.
More eloquent lips than mine will
describe to 3'ou the long and singular,
but interesting process of evolution,
by which our enterprise slowly grew
out of the diseovorics then made by
so much courage and intelligence.
They will tell you how the record of
these discoveries first gave rise, as
long as nearly half a century ago, to
prophetic visions of a transcontinental
railroad along Lewis and Clark's route,
and how, within ten years after theso
visions were first embodied in print,
they filled the mind of one man with
such fire of enthusiasm as to move him
to go forth, like another apostle, and
to spend the best years of his life and
all he possessed in the propagation of
his faith. You will learn how in the
end he became a very martyr to his
belief, but how the project of a rail
road to the Pacific, despite tho failure
of its first prophet, made converts,
spread widely and gretv into popnlari
ty, until it finally attained the import
ance of a leading public question and
object of national legislation.
You will be shown how the north
ern route, which at first was the only
one thought of, gradually lost prestige
and other routes took prominence,
Yon w.ill see the quaint figure of an
honest visionary appear upon the
scone, first as the promoter of an odd
illusion, and next as the moving
spirit in the formal birth and christen
ing of our enterprise through the con
gressional charter of 1SG4. You will
hear that the charter failed to give
real life to the corporation, owing to
certain abnormal features engrafted
upon it, and that it passed eventually
to tho control of wise, experienced and
influential men; but who, however also
failed at first to attract the needed
capital until those features were eradi
cated by congressional amendment.
Then the brilliant episode in our
histor' will pass beforo you, in which
an able, bold and resolute man was
the central figure, to whom, most of
all, the company owes its practical
existence. You will be reminded how
the hopeful brightness of that period
was eclipsed by the black darkness of
the cataclysm of 1873. Our fabric
seemed then to be lost in a bottom
less pit. j et an entiro resurrection
followed, owing to the inherent vi
tality of the prostrate body, and to
the resolute application of the heroic
remedies of foreclosure and reorgani
There was an immediate restora
tion to very active life. Years of j
slow recuperation followed, until tho
advont of the extraordinary revival of j
commerce and industry generally, and J
of railroad undertaking especially, in j
the years of 1879 and 1880. The sa
gacious men who then directed tho
company's affairs saw their patience
rewarded and the time ripe once
more for tho resumption of construc
tion work on the road.
Thj began cautiously, seeking
what was possible rather than what
was desirable. All at once, fortune
smiled with intense radiance upon the
company. A financial alliance with a
great syinlicate was formed. Its con
clusion meant nothing less than the as
surance of all the capital required to
complete the road, and thereby the
end of all uncertainty in the prospects
of the company a leap, in short, into
With a flood-tide into the com
pany's treasury, there arose not only
the possibility, but the necessity of
pushing the construction of our trans
continental line with the utmost
energy. 1 hope I may be permitted
to say that we have striven to do our
full duty, and to obtain the greatest
effort of which human brain and
muscles, stimulated by unlimited
capital, are capable, in a given time
and in a stated direction. Work on
the main line was first resumed on
the west bank of the Missouri river in
he spring of 1870, and the confluence
of the Columbia and Snake rivera in
the fall of the same year. The dist-
ancojbetween the two starting points
was 1,222 miles. The 217 miles from
the Missouri to the Yellowstone were
completed in June, 18S1; tho 225
miles from the Columbia to Lake
Pend d'Oreille in November, 1881.
The completion of the 310 miles of the
road in the Yellowstone valley took
seventeen months. The 194 miles up
the gorges of Clark's Fork to Missoula,
nineteen months; from tho head of
tho Yellowstone valley to Helena, and
thence to this junction, nine months.
Thus, the first 442 mile3 of the total
mileage to be completed that is, the
Missouri and Pend d'Oreille divisions
were finished in two yoars and
eight months, while the other 7S0
miles were completed in less than two
In this time, the great structure of
the Bismarck bridge was also erected.
The continuation of the main line
down the Columbia for a length of
210 more miles by another company
to Portland, and a thousand addi
tional miles of lines of branch and al
lied companies were finished. Now
these figures aro easily quoted, and
apparently speak a very simple lan
guage. But their true meaning goes
far beyond the mere space of time
and mileage of completed road they
indicate. They form a great sum of
human patience and perseverance,
energy and bravery, hardship and pri
vation. They express long and hard
tests of the power of human ingenuity
and endurance in a mighty strugglo of
mechanical and manual force against
the direct obstacles of primitive na
ture. They mean a painful record of
bodily suffering and loss of life by
disease and accident. You have
seen enough of the work to form an
idea of its difficulty, its vastness, its
costliness. Yon have the testimony
of your own eyes that this high
way had to bo carved as it were, out
of a very wilderness where wo found
nothing to help us no labor, no food,
no habitations, no material, no means
of transportation. Yon see the evi
dence of triumph over every hin
drance. But you perceive only fin
ished results; the dramatic incidents
f their achievements are not dis
closed to 3'ou. Boiling along smooth
ly, merrily and luxuriously over the
line, how can you know that the
bridges over which we pass were built
while the subdued rivers were hidden
in ice or swollen to perilous depth and
turbulence? that defiance was bidden
to the seasons, and the pick and
shovel kept flying, though the way
had to be cleared through thick crusts
of snow, and on frozen ground thawed
I have not said all this in a boast
ful spirit, but solely to give proper
credit where it belongs for the great
deed now well nigh done, and thus
discharge, by this public acknowl
edgement, as much as possible, the
heavy debt of gratitude that weighs
Let me then own, on this solemn
occasion, that our edifice could have
never been reared but for tho liberali
ty of the people of the United States
acting through tho federal govern
ment, in providing a solid foundation
in our land grant; for the deTotion
and sagacity of the men who steered
our craft in tho days of distross and
danger; for the generous forbearance
of our stockholders, the confidence of
the public, the powerful help of fi
nancial allies; and last, but far from
least, for tho ability and faithfulness
of the officers and employes of the
company and for the myriads of hon
est toilers who earned their bread
in the sweat of their brows for oar
And thus we are permitted to-day
to behold this mighty task as all but
finished. It was my proud privilege
to exercise the chief direction over its
last stages. No light duty it was, bet
wearisome, brain and nerve exhaust
ing. Still, its very grandeur inspired
the will and the power to perform it,
and there was comfort and elevation
the thought that we have built
what cannot perish, but will Inst to
the end of all earthly things. Let us
hope and pray that this great work of
man will stand forever, it may also
forever be an immortal honor to its
builders, a permanent pride and profit
to its owners, and most of all, an ev
erlasting blessing to man.
