THE SOUTHERN AFTER IT.
That's What Rumor Says of tbe
Norfolk and Western.
From ibo .Mlant.i Journal.
Tho placing of tho Norfolk and
Western Railroad Company into the
hatids of a receiver day boforo yes
terdny by Judge Qoff, of Richmond,
has boou tho livest topio of disuus
sion for some time iu local railroad
circles. Perhaps it will bo still
livelier when tho probuhle full im?
port of the receivership is under?
stood by the rtulroud world.
"Does the Southern railway want
tho Norfolk and Western?"
The information comes from au
authority which is reliable not only
ou account of tho accuracy of its
judginout, but from tho point of
view from whioh these judgments
uro obtained, that tho Southern ruil
wuv does waut tho Norfolk aud
Jt is even intimated that the gou
eral debility of tho Norfolk was
brought about by tho fact that thoro
was a deal between parties iutercst
eil, so that tho outcome of tho whole
matter would be the final merging
of the Norfolk and Western system
into the grejit Southern railway.
Oue might us well look into tho
reasonableness of Bitch a proposition.
Why should tho Southern railway
want this property '!
Tho following aro tho lines of tho
Norfolk and Western system:
First, thero is tho main lino from
Norfob;, Va., to Bristol, Teun,,
which, by tho way, is an oxcelleut
stretch of track and road-bod mo
uiug through a beautiful and fertile
reg on. This lino is 10S miles long.
Second, vs a branch from Roau
oko to Hagerstowu, 239 miles loug,
a city iu tno extreme northern por?
tion of Virginia.
A third brauch runs from Tulnski
toU?Bbeu, forty soven miles long; a
fourth from illuetiolds to Norton,
lOo" miles long; a fifth from Lyueh
burg, Vu.. to Durham, N. C, 110
miles long; a sixth from Roauoke,
Va., to Wtnston Salem, N. C,, 122
Tho longest spur is from FubI
Radford, u station between Rounokc
aud Bristol, to Columbus, O?, which
is 100 miles in luugth. Tho lino
runs through Bluetield, through
Iroutou, O., to Columbus. There
ttre other little spurs aggregating
thirty ouu miles iu length.
Tho total mileage of the system
The Southern railway crosses tho
Norfolk and Western at Lyuohburg;
the Southern moots tho Norfolk aud
Westeru also at its Western termi?
nus, Bristol, Teuii. Thus at two
points tha Southern oomes iu eon
tact with the road which is iu tho
hatids of a receiver, Among tho
tinest water terminals ou tho Atlan?
tic coast are thosu owned by tho
Norfolk aud Westeru at Norfolk.
Several millions of dollars have boou
spent iu erecting ttiem. With an
outlet ut Norfolk, via Lynchburg,
the Southern would bo right iu it to
compete with its formidable compe?
titor, tho Seaboard Air Liue,
At Bristol tho Southern System
would be completed, ami via Fust
Red ford, Vu., it would huvo a con
nectiou with Ohio, West Virginia
ami other points in tho North by
j means of tho Norfolk ami Western's
branch from Fast Radford to Co
j luiubns, Ohio.
This is n consideration of the mnt
tor merely in the light of geogra?
phy. It does not include the tact
that the Norfolk aud Western is on
; the list of tirst-ehiss railroads aud,
by good management, could bo
made a paying institution, Thu
Southern would hko to huvo it for
The Norfolk and Western is a
natural complement of tho Southern
railway system iu tue South, and
from tho point of tho logic, of the
Situation it would seem tnut if the
Southern desires to extern! its milo
age at all it would most naturally do
so by tbe addition of the Norfolk
j ami Western.
I If such bo tho intention ot the
Southern, it goes without saying
that for the present it would bo im?
possible ol confirmation, for if there
is anything which is kept, B secret
by railroadmen, it is their kuowl
etigo of proposed deals of this
Hut Tho .ionrnul has iu nn indi?
rect way which easts tho strongest
probability upon the outcome which
has Leen here suggested.
The Spanish, Swedish and Ger?
man dunces were rehearsed last
