Goulil Said to Bo Making Xew Connec
tion in the Went.
Denver, Colo., Dec. 25. The Times to-day
says that the announcement comes from an
apparently authoritative source that the
branch of the Texas and Pacific Railroad,

Tex., is to be extended to Trinidad, Colo.,
where connection will be made with the
Denver and Rio Grande Railroad, thus giv
ing Denver another direct route into Texas

It also says that the Denver and R!o
Grande will expend something like rAOOO.WO
improving its roadbed between Denver nnd
Pueblo, in contemplation of increased
traffic, as a result of the new extension of
the Texas and Pacific.
Further improvements are contemplated
from Trinidad and Walsenburg. Colo. The
road from Weatherford to Trinidad will be
about -150 miles long, and will form a link
which will gve the Gould system its own
road from New Orleans to Ogden. Utnh.
It will form an outlet from all the North
ern Pacific Coast to the leading Gulf shipping-
ports and give the Gould system a
new connection of its own in the West. It
will also be the following out of Mr.
Gould's policy of making himself independ
ent of the Hawley-Hnrriman interests, in
the event of an extension of their fight, as
it will be a parallel road for Mr. Hawley's
Colorado and Southern Texas road.
