Quotes

"Things were very simple here," Hikido recalled. "We played games like kick-the-can, hide-and-seek and baseball. I have good memories of those times."
Harriman gave $200,000 of his own fortune directly to the cause. "The rich and poor have to be cared for alike" he wrote in a telegram home
...The sustained special defense read "That the provisions of the Constitution and laws of California in respect to the assessment for taxation of the property of railway corporations operating railroads in more than one county, are in violation of the Fourteenth Amendment of the Constitution insofar as they require the assessment of their property at its full money value without making deduction, as in the case of railroads operated in one county and of other corporations and of natural persons, for the value of the mortgages covering the property assessed, thus imposing upon the defendant unequal burdens, and to that extent denying to it the equal protection of the laws."
"The start was made from the West Salem side at 11:38. In the seat of honor on the engine pilot, which was prettily decorated with bunting, sat demure little Helen West, daughter of Governor (Oswald West, who was to have the honor of strewing gorgeous red and white carnations in the pathway of the official train."
