lar.y Matter*?The aiorltz>llecltor
(Special to Virginlan-Pllot.)
Richmond, Va., April 5.?It la stated
to-day aemi-ofucially that tho negotia?
tions .between the Chesapeake & Ohio,
and Richmond, Petersburg and Caro?
lina Railway Companies looking to the
construction of a union depot In this
city, have been completed, and that the
depot will be built by the two roads.
There seems no reason to doubt the
accuracy of this statement. Tho ofll
cials of the two roads when asked to
confirm or deny It, would not discuss
the matter, but they admitted that
matters had now reached a stage where
success seemed extremely likely.
Mr. Decatur Axtell, second vice-pres?
ident of tho Chesapeak & Ohio, who
has been conducting the negotiations
for that company, stated that should
the depot be built by the two roads
they would pursue tho "open door" pol?
icy, that is, they would allow another
road that chose to bear tho cost of con?
struction to come in, and after the
building was constructed, any road de?
siring to come into the depot could do
so upon fair terms.
The building of the depot will be one
of the most gratifying; events the peo?
ple of Richmond have heard of in years.
Tho Chesapeake & Ohio's station here
is a miserable shed, long an eye-sore,
and wholly unfitted for its purpose.
