Mrs. Irving Berlin thinks that in all probability Mackay had
to "bail out" Telfener and Hungerford from this railroad ven-
ture. Telfener continued his varied financial activities for the
remainder of his life and always appeared to be prosperous. He
died in Rome on New Year's Day, 1898."0
At present, the chief reminders of the part played by Telfener
and his family in rail construction in Texas are to be found in
various place names along the present Southern Pacific line from
Victoria to Houston. Traveling east from Victoria one comes first
to Telfener, then to Inez, named for a Telfener daughter who
never married, then to Edna, also named for a daughter who
married Don Giacomo de Martino, a one-time Italian ambassador
to the United States. Next, one passes through Louise, so desig-
nated for Louise Hungerford Mackay, then to Mackay, commem-
orating the "Bonzana King," and last to Hungerford, named for
Colonel Hungerford, a partner in the whole project and an official
of the New York, Texas, and Mexican Railway Company.41
