far this season.

This is not a year of special activity in
railroad building , yet the total construc-
tiou of new track bids fair to be larger
than in any year since the beginning of
the panic. The first six months saw
1,292 miles of new road completed. This
proportion maintained until the end of
the year will make 2,500 miles for the
twelve mouths. The greatest activity
in railroad building has been in the
south and west , where there has been
less over-building than in other parts of
country. Alabama leads in this work ,
having laid 147 miles. Missouri comes
next with ninety-two miles. Louisiana
laid seventy-four miles , California seven
ty-three , New Mexico sixty-seven , Geor
gia sixty-two and Oklahoma sixty-one
miles. In the following fifteen states
not a mile of new main line track has
been laid this year : Connecticut , Iowa ,
Kansas , Kentucky , Nebraska , Nevada ,
New Hampshire , New Jersey , North and
South Dakota , Rhode Island , Utah , Ver
mont , Wyoming , and the district of
