day, und there met Gen. John (Jill,
i>f Baltimore, Md.,receiver of tbe Cape
3'unr and Yudkin Valley Kailroad,
and these gentlemen left on no in
epcctiou tour over the Bounoko and
f?outbcrn railroad, ruaning from

over tbe Capo tear and Yctfkiu.Valley

lliounoke und Scutborn and Cape Fear
and Yadkiu Valley,
The former road it loasod to tbe
Norfolk and Western railroad, and the
tatter in in tbe bandu of u receiver. It
needs but a gluuce ut the lines ol tbe
Jlaltiinoro and (?bio railroad, aud tbe
Norfolk aud W entern rAilrund, to see
that lor the coutrol ot Southern bust
lies ?? this lattor road is a very necessary
?djuuet fo the former.
'the Norfolk uud Western railroad
on tbu west couuecth with the bull;
more aud t ?bio at (loluuabua also and
nt Chillicothe and Portsmouth; bIso on
tbe north it can couuect at Uagerttown
end Lexington, Va, It will bo re?
membered, before tin! Yanderhilt* took
control of tbo Chesapeake and < ?hio
railroad and furnished it witb a West?
<rn outlet in the "Big Four" l.iuo its
liuaueiul condition was precarious. See
fiow siaple its tiuauces are to-day. It
i - mio of the I e: t ruilread properties
iu the country.
The absorption of the Norfolk and
v\ cstem railroad by tbe Baltimore und
Ohio would have u like effect, It would
transform it into a trunk hue from
Norfolk to Chicago, Cincinnati and St,
J.oins, aud if the proper traltio ar
rangcuieuls could bo made with tbe
l^ouiHville nnd Nashville railroad would
lie the shortest route iroiu tins point to
Memphis und the Southwest, Another
?;ruat advantage would accrue to the
Jialtimure and <*hio in controlling the
Morfolk and Western, and tbut is, it
would own both lines through the val?
ley of ^ irginia, thus shiitliug its com
gietitor, t ho 1'enusyiTauis railroad, out.
It would control two leaders to the
Houth ? the Ituunuiio aud Southern
railway, from Roauoko to Winston, N,
C., which will eventually be pushed
direct to Columbia, .S. c. and also the
line Iron) Lyuehburg to Durham, cou
riectiug with Ilia Seaboard Air Line
and Southern railway. In (act, the
absorption ol the Noriolk and Western
railroad would look as though it could
make direct connections with every
Bon thorn railway system ol any note.
i'ho Norfolk and Westum railroad is
a valuable property, but so much
money bus been placed in betterments
uud extensions ihat thu bondholders
Iiud difficulty in re-organizing. A few
areeka since the Cumberland creek

What seems more ousy than that thu
lialtimoru ami Ohio should ??top this
cutting in the coal irude by eoutrolliug
tint only the coal business of its own
fine, but of the Norfolk aud Western
lAilroiid, ltd chivf competiior m% well.
Uuless indications now oroppiug out
go very fur astray tbe opinion ol it is
bouiu of your well inloruied rullroad
men that tlio Baltimore ami Ohio rail?
road will run ltd trams luto this har
bor within the next twelve months.
The visit ol thu Baltimore ami Ohio
railroad otlicluls in the ?South means
that thuy are pushing out fur addi?
tional territory, uud especially to ex?
tend their ooal trade, What
is to justilr them in absorbing I lie
Hnnuuke and Southern and 1 u t?
