Wallace: To the Committee on Railway Terminals of the City Council of ChicagoIn the consideration of the Railway Terminal situation at Chicago it becomes necessary at the outset, for the purpose of simplification, to separate it into two parts - passenger and freight.

Each part should be considered with reference to the needs of the community, to its own needs, its relation to commercial requirements- also the relationship of each terminal to others, to the traffic of the streets leading to it, and to the distributing systems of transportation within the city and its suburbs.These phases of the problem are of intimate concern to all interested in the welfare of Chicago, for unless each factor necessary to the successful use of a railway terminal receives proper consideration, the result is unsatisfactory to both the public and the railroads.

No one factor is of greater importance than that of providing proper facilities for carrying the constantly increasing volume of street traffic.It is, therefore, not sufficient, in the study of this question, to consider the requirements of the railways alone, for the relationship of railway terminals to the city, in meeting conveniently the necessities of the people and in facilitating the growth of the city along lines productive of greatest ultimate development, is of the highest consequence.I have endeavored, in the brief time at my disposal for the consideration of a question so complicated, involving so many large interests, to outline what appears to me to be the controlling conditions and the course of action that may consistently be taken at this time to meet the immediate necessities of the concrete situation your Committee now has before it for consideration.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
