Several very wealthy and influential capitalists are stock-holders in the Mexican Southern Railroad Company. It is now believed that the main line will be completed at an early day. Señor Matias Romero, in an article on Rail-ways in Mexico, published in the International Review for November, 1882, states that the inhabitants of Oaxaca are very anxious to have this road finished as soon as possible; and that the merchants threaten to withdraw their capital from the State if the construction of the railway is delayed much longer.
