He ta very desirous ot havUg the road fialshed and wtll bead firry energy to have It In operation at the very earlteat possible lime. He said: 'Th* daisy In the work of con- ■tmctlon of the road through your rtty ha* been uns_o)dsble an far aa, the railroad company Is concerned, | and the fault lies entirely with tbe mllla that are to furnish our material. However, I have Just received word that four carloads of rails were ahlpped oa the I.th of this month. Tbey will be hurried along a* fast as possible and will probably arrive on lh* 31st. "Aa w* caanot ba absoluUly sur* tbat tbey wtll arrive on .schedule time we will Bot tear up Ibe street* of thin city until wo know thsl tbe dii- terlsl la within a few days of here. I do not wish to provide any Incon- v.-nlrnrp to traffic on Ihe Palo Alto atreeu. aad that Is my reason for waiting until the last mlaute. Tbe work of laying the tracks wilt of Itself take a vory short time, and Im- tnedlalely thereafter the line will b* In operation. Thlrly-flv* hundred tie* I are already here aad 3,100 more arej on the way. "We are going to build a roadbed In Palo Alto equal to thai of any clly In th* country. The rails will be the very host obtainable. They are to be the "Trilby" »llb rati, which ar* heavy as any made. The road- bad will hare a fine concrete ballast below and about th* ties, and tho rails will come flush with the aurfac* of th* atreet. The flange loop on Ihe Inside of the rail will make Ibe only dr'irt-*«toD perccpteble on the street, and this loop will bo too ■ i:i:iii for earring** when I a to run in.

"Thsrt* will Ite a doublti track on I'niv.irslty avenue as far aa Waverly afreet, and on tb* Utter a single track. "AH contracts for construction wort* have been let. and the setting polos, stringing of wires and laying of tracks will go on simultaneously. It win be but a short time, provided unavoidable obatacles do aot com* Ib our way, before th* system will be ln operation. That Is what I am here for—to build the line as quickly a* It can be don*." Whea asked concerning tbe connec Hobs likely to be made with the In terurban line. Col. Draper said: "That remalni to be seen. At prea- ent nothing can be definitely aUted, and I can aay nothing of the plana of Ibe company outside of tbe construction work I bsve to do."
