This pamphlet contains the text of the address made by Carl R. Gray, president of the Union Pacific System, before an annual banquet of the National Safety Council in Cleveland, Ohio, on September 30, 1925. The address begins with a brief history of railroads excerpted from "First Spikes in Railway History in England and America" by A. Saintsby (1925).
