Woodland Daily Democrat (Newspaper) - July 9, 1906, Woodland, California WEEKLY ESTABLISHED 1868 WOODLAND CALIFORNIA MONDAY EVENING JULY 0 190G DAILM ESTABLISHED 1WT HE RAILROAD KNOCKS WOODLAND he Train Service Soon to Be in Force Will be the Poorest in the History of This City w seems assured that the South lo no1 i Pacific Company is determined to ike Woodland a blow the effect ot lilch will be paralysing and so far tachlng in its consequence that every e of Industry will be injuriously af ictcd A mere statement of what IB propos seems positively so absurd that we e amazed that experienced railroad icn have given the plan serious con ideration But we can assure our sadere that the plan has not only been latured but it is to be put in operation soon as the new time table can be inted In the rearrangement of the new ehedules Woodland has been given no nore consideration than if it were a leepy village of one hundred inhablt nts There Is not a watering tank nywhere on the line that will not eu y equal privileges and advantages ith the county seal of Yolo county ne of the busiest most progressive nd promising cities in the Sacramen valley The business men and the traveling Wlic who pour from twenty to mttyilve thousand dollars every ontli into tho coffers of the corpora on have not even been consulted lout changes that will affect them nancially thousands of dollars every ear and in some instances necessi ate a change in their methods of do ig business Of lateyears the relations between ie company and the people of Wood and have been of a friendly character his Is in a great measure due to the lolicy and the influence of Mr Morris 10 local agent While he has ever leen loyal to the Interests of the com iany he has earnestly endeavored to jring about a better understanding jetween the corporation and its pat rons In return for his good offices the eople have given him the preference n routing passengers and freight to points where the company has com As a result Woodland now s one of the best revenuepro gfjuon files ai ucing stations in the Sacramento val ey More tickets fire sold here than are aid at all the stations between here vnd Red Bluff on the west side or between Sacramento and Chico on the ast side of tho river Ninetenths of ho passengers going east are routed over the Central Pacific The great bulk o the freight received from the IB grouted over the companys lines AH this seems to have been over ooked or forgotten in the rearrange ment of the new time table Woodland s tobe subjected to the most drastic Jn this article we shall not fathom the motives that Inhueirce a change so disastrous lousinessInterests of this city We iplroposo to state the facts as we believe them to be and point out the results that seem likely to follow and allow our readers to draw their own conclusions and pass their own Judg feent Under the proposed schedule the Or ison express which now arrives here n will not be due until about I oclock The Oregon express which arrives here at will be due about 3 oclock Tills would not be so bad iftho Orovllle trains were allowed to a new train to run via Roseville at the expense of Woodland There are two passenger trains already running each way on the east side and a freight train that carries passengers This new train run by way of Wood land and benefit all cities and towns that will be benefited by the new ar rangement except Hoseville Lincoln and Wheatland and the three of them combined are not of the importance of Woodland If the purpose of the change is to give Chico another train this can be done without any expense to the com pany and at the same time improve the service between Chico Marysville Woodland and San Francisco The train might be run to Davis to meet the train that leaves San Francisco at 7 oclock Passengers mail and ex press for Woodland Marysville and Chico could be transferred at Davis and reach their destination an hour earlier than they do under the present schedule The mileage is seven miles greater from Sacramento to Marysville via Woodland than it is via Roseville But by running the train as we have sug gested a swing train between Sacra mento and Davis to connect with the Oregon express would be unnecessary and the company would actually save nineteen miles every day by running the train via Woodland From San Francisco to Marysville via Woodland is 123 miles and from San Francisco to Marysville via Sac ramento it is 142 miles Prom San Francisco to Chico over the two routes the difference in favor of the Wood land route is 19 miles Under the new schedule Marysville thirtyfive miles farther away from San Francisco than is Woodland will receive the San Francisco mail about an hour arid twenty minutes earlici than the same mall will be received in Woodland Chico people 185 miles from San Francisco via Sacramento will get their San Francisco papers al most at the same hour they are re ceived in Woodland Is this fair treat ment to the people of Woodland anr vicinity Whan tlie new time card goes into effect business men of Woodland wil not be able to reply to San Francisco letters on the day tliQy are received Tlie San Francisco morning paper and the Sacramento Evening Bee wil be received about the same lime ply unbearable in an enterprising city I like Woodland From expressions beard on every hand we are confident that the people will not tamely submit to such an injustice They are going to enter a vigorous protest If that falls to bring relief tthey are going to make a struggle for their rights Fortunatej ly the meins are lit hand which will j enable them lo make an effective fight They have no desire to antagonize the Southern Pacific They prefer that amicable relations should con tinue between them and the corpora tion They will first try pacific metli ods but if these fail they are not going to submit to such Injustice without taking a vigorous effort to preserve icir rights BtBEriJ6HT HAYRIOE PARTIES Mrs Darrie Bean Gray Honored By Old Friends run on their present schedule But two of them are to be taken off alto gether Under the present schedule the Or egon express Is rarely ever on time When it Is relied on to do the work which two trains are now required to perform it is unreasonable to expect It to run asnear on schedule time as It does now As a result Woodland will receive no mall from San Francisco and way earlier than oclock and it will often be much later company proposes to give Chico Vl M 11 MM I H 11111111 BOWEL COMPLAINT fN CHILDREN During the summer
