If on railroad through our town
will develop ooal mines, that bring In
a revenue of from itU.OOO lo 850,000
per month, would not another road,
crossing the lirat diagonally and run
ning over different lauds, double this
immense revenue. From our stand
point this is a simple proposition. If
we can got the Burlington road to ex
tend from Bogard to Richmond we can
easily develop coal mines that will
more than double th present out put,
for the reason that it would give us
better outlet for our coal. When we
consider the great advantage such an
increase of revenue would bring to us,
we ought to wake up to the importance
of securing this line. It is pretty gen
erally couoeded that tne Burlington
people have under consideration the
uxtuusion of this line, and perhaps our
people might offer some inducement
that would decide the managers to
10 reacn out the Immense trad we can
otter them. The property owners are
tho men who would be beuelitted by
this move, and those whs own coal
lauds along the proposed rout should
not be slow to move In this matter.
