PitfGE OF T.ffE MISSING LINK.
SpxAKixa of tho Coast railroad to
Ba Francisco, the Bulletin makes
the following remarks, from which it
pilars that giving a subsidy to a
nilroad seems a good deal liko dravr
2 "blood to some of San Francisco's
oiftfrPE, much the same as it does to
thoe of some other cities. Yet they
feA that it Vould be better to pay the
xaooey rather than not get tho read:
"It is fiemi-officially announced that
tka Southern Pacific will undertake
the construction of the Coast road to
this city, on the terms proposed by the
Si Jose convention. It sounds like
tbe almost forgotten past to read that
a railroad company is to get $100,
000 "worth of property in stations
ad right-of-way, and $315,000 in cash
5a throe annual payments, to build a
xsflroad for itself, in the management
of which the donors are to have no
Toicc There is too much in the prop
osition like the cutting of a stick to
break one's back, to make it altogether
But the line in question is
the missing link in the railroad sys
tem of San Francisco. By it passen
gers and freight from the south will
teach this city by a route much shorter
tk&a that up the San Joaquin valley
sad vfll be lauded without any
Sge, Its construction will place San
Jose on an eastern trunk line. If
there was no other way to get it but
tjy granting tho subsidy above set
forth, the antiquated method
o doing business which it re
Teels may bo excused. But there
cmght to bo somo specification as to
the time in which the work is
coamenced. If this link should be
completed there will still be room for
sother road coming up the coast and
rewiring the water front at North
Beech. It is the roads up the San
Joaquin which render ferriage neces
sary to gain this city. San Francisco
it on tho southern side of the Golden
Gate and she can be gained much
SRore speedily by land than by making
& deiour and crossing the bay.'
The S. F. Chronicle treats the same
object in this manner:
The Southern Pacific company
has responded to the offer made it by
the railroad convention which met in
Ssa Jose in June, and is kind enough
to sey that it will accept the 315,000
tendered it by that body and will
b3d a railroad between Santa IVTar
fsrita and Ellwood, provided the
oomvention will eliminate the lime
liaait mentioned in the offer. In other
"words, the Southern Pacific will take
th tight of way, depot grounds, etc.,
sod will build the road when it gets
neady and not before. If the con
TBQtkm shall listen to this impudent
proposition it will show itself to
be possessed of more thau or
dkt&ry folly. The chairman of the
coarention has called a meeting of the
executive committee for the 16th of
thk month, in this city, to confer with
tho railroad people, and the members
o that committee cannot do better
than to put in the intervening two
weeks in figuring what the counties
oa the line of the proposed road are
to gain by paying this largo sum of
laoney to a company which obligates
itself to nothing except to build a rail
road when it sees fit The time limit
o$fkt to be a condition precedent to
the bonus, for with that taken out the
counties have no promise of a return
for their money until the rail road com
pany thinks the building of the road
woold bo a profitable undertaking.
Under such conditions they would do
much better to keep their money in
New England sends $3,000,000 an
awdly to tho New Orleans lottery.
aad in return receives but $50,000.
The managers of the lottery claim to
do better for the New England states
then they do for any other sections of
tie country, but California, on the
lfbole, is their best customer.
