Writing in i876, the preface to his history of the Intercolonial, Sir Sand-ford Homing said: "Tho Intercolonial Railway is national in its objects and character." This groat railway engineer was. at the time, engineer-ln-cliiet of tha Ncwfound,land, intercolonial antl Can ad Ian Pacific railways, tho latter then being projected as a Government nn-riortalcing, and It is to this he refers in the last sentence of tlic preface when ho states that tho completion ot the work "realizes the national aspirations of half a century, by bringing wllliin a few hours, the old fortress of Halifax and the older citadel of Quebec, and which must form an important section of the railway, destined, ere long, to extend from east ;o west through the entire Dominion. The words then spoken with confidence by a man experienced in achievement have bee^n fulfilled, but in tlien Canadian became a privately owned company and is now the only competitor ot the system that is "National in its objects and character" of whicTi the Intercolonial is an important section.
