'\n Interesting Railroad Rumor.
"*x*ailroad rumors have been so fre
^ Mi3:11, in the past that Anderson people
:c?eo slow to attach mnch importance to
'T&em. Tho Charlotte Chronicle, how
<-j$wr, is authority for some railroad
aews that possesses nn clement of deep
taterest. It says ;tbat the Southern
E?a.ilway is preparing to build the new
*S5oe from Knoxvllle to Walhalla, and
<6hat the line hns been surveyed and
'ifae contract partly let.
The distance from Knox ville, Tenn.,
over the present line of the Southern
tfwtienecais 288 miles. In case the
oew line is built across tho mountains,
cxae distance will be shortened to a little
more than 100 miles.
The traffic in coal is particularly
fiseavy, and a short line would bring
u&tnitan immense saving in freight
e?tes. Freight traffic has for a long
t&tne been congested, which state of
^affairs wonld be relieved by the new
ax?ad. The Chronicle says that, even
s.a. tho mountainous section through
which the proposed line is to pass, there
?will^bo no heavy grading to be done.
Syr following the Tennessee River from
alary ville, Tenn., for a distance of 20
amies, and thence up its tributaries, the
line would be brought very ner.r Wal
halla without encountering any hills.
The old tunnel above Walhalla will
(prohably bo used by the Southern in
gutting into South Carolina.
