THE STEEL ¦ HIGHWAYS [Newspaper Article] — Urbana Daily Courier — 28 March 1903

THE STEEL ¦ HIGHWAYS Condensed News Items of General Interest to Rail * road Men . GATHERED BY THE COURIER Doings of the Oificials and Employes Along the Peoria and Eastern . A movement has been started among the western railway managers to secure a general decrease in the speed of the most important passenger trains . Extremely heavy traffic , both freight and passenger , with very unfavorable climatic conditions , made it practically impossible for most of the western mail trains to make their schedules time during the past fall and winter . The detention of freight trains caused the greatest loss to the railroads ; but the fines imposed by the postoffice department because of the failure of mail trains to make their scherules during the past six months amount to an enormous sum . As practically till the lines were in the same condition , none suffered specially because of the detention of passenger . trains . Shippers sue when freight is delayed or damaged in transit , but passen...

Things- of which some pf them think , they cannot be proud—such as the way in which their hard-working fathers got their start in life—they try to forget . That the fathers are sometimes proud of this same lowly start is responsible for this incident : Do you know , young man , that I once was very envious of your v father ? . said one of the steel kings to the son . of a man whose wealth , while great , could be written with one less figure , says a writer in the New York Tribune . And w . hen was that ? asked the joung man . pleased to think that there had ever been a time when the king envied his father . It was this way , returned the old man .
