Speedy construction under such conditions required employment of many men and nothing was scarcer in California than labor in 1865.

Such Caucasians as were not employed on ventures of their own found it more profitable to work in the mines or follow agricultural pursuits than to face the hardships of hand-carving a railroad right-of-way up the steep slopes and through the granite spires of the Sierra.

The Chinese menu included dried oysters, abalone, cuttlefish, bamboo sprouts, mushrooms, five kinds of vegetables, pork, poultry, vermicelli, rice, salted cabbage, dried seaweed, sweet rice crackers, sugar, four kinds of dried fruit, Chinese bacon, peanut oil, and tea.

Seemingly, this was the forerunner of the modem American well-balanced diet.

The above opportunity affords a chance for those out of employment. The first indication of this appears in a letter written April 12, 1865, by Central Pacific's legal counsel judge E. Crocker to his longtime friend Cornelius Cole, who was retiring as a California congressman and returning to his home. You will be astonished when you come back and see the amount of work we have done. [2] Charles Crocker, who conceived the plan of employing the Chinese, was opposed by Strobridge, who gave in only after a series of trials demonstrated the worth of the Celestial worker.

A large part of our force are Chinese, and they prove nearly equal to white men, in the amount of labor they perform, and are far more reliable. We are training them to all kinds of labor, blasting, driving horses, handling rock, as well as the pick and shovel.... Crocker insisted that the race that built the Great Wall of China could certainly be useful in building a railroad, countering Strobridge's claim that they were "not masons."[3] Strobridge finally agreed to try fifty Chinese.

For several months the number procured was comparatively small, but recently they have increased more rapidly, until now, 5,000 men are employed, with over 6,000 teams and the prospect is that the number of laborers will be increased to 6,000 during this season.

This made the bonds immediately salable and gave the railroad instant relief from long and agonizing financial strain.

Four days later, the Sacramento Union carried a Central Pacific advertisement calling for "5,000 laborers for constant and permanent work; also experienced foremen." Construction, long halted at Newcastle, California, was speeded immediately.
