Part 1, Chapter 5 Summary

This chapter recalls a happier occasion in Sulaco. A newly elected President Ribiera has an opening ceremony for the Central Railway Project. The leader of the foreign residents of Sulaco, Mrs. Gould, who is the wife of the owner of the silver mine, recounts the long history of Sulaco and how quiet and peaceful it is.

The chairman of the railway company complains about his problems convincing the local landowners to let him run the railway through their land. He is counting on Ribiera to make sure the deal works out. His surveying trip is assisted by Nostromo, who has been lent by the OSN for the trip. The surveying team is hoping to gain the support of Charles Gould, the owner of the San Tome silver mine, to convince the landowners to agree to his plan.
