The Boston correspondent of the Springfield Republican has been discussing the prospects of an elevated railway in Boston: "It is the prevailing opinion that the route from Brighton through Cambridge to Boston is the most feasible for an experiment, as the travel is heavy, horse-car accommodations poorer than elsewhere, and the injury to real estate less than over any other route yet talked of. Of course the most politic plan is to run the elevated road up to Boston and then endeavor to get it inside the limits. As long as the horsecar service in the city is as good as now, it will be difficult to inaugurate the elevated railway scheme within the city proper. Public sentiment here is undoubtedly against it, and the only place where there is an immediate demand for an elevated road is between Cambridge and Boston."
