GREAT ACTIVITY ALL OVER
The Southwest to Itecotnc tlie Scene of
n Great TraRic?The Norfolk and
Wowtcrn** New Purchase?The Itonn
okc mill Southern.
THE HAGERSTOWN LADS JUST[?^?^S
ESCAPE A GOOSE EGG.
Activity in railroad circles all over
the country has recently been very
great, and in Thk Times news of a
number of movements of interest to
the people in this section have been,
given. The Southwest is without
doubt to become the scene of a great
railroad traffic,R8 indeed, it is already.
Railroads are great developers; rail?
roads made Roanoke, and railroads
are making the New South.
Without doubt the most important
event was the purchase by the Nor?
folk and Western of the Seioto Val?
ley road. This purchase has been
fully explained in these columns by
President Kimball, and that Roanoke
will be greatly benefited by the ex?
tension to the West goes without say?
'Tt is difficult," says a Wall street
man, "to Ugureout just now how valu?
able an acquisition the Scioto Valley
and New England is for the Norfolk
and Western. It in ;s road with heavy
traffic at low rates, and all its earnings
during the reconstruction period were
turned into the property. As soon as
the Ironton connection is made, there
will be a very considerable amount of
business exchanged between the two
roads. The fixed charges arc $200,000
a year, being the interest on five mil?
lions of 4 per cent, honds. The earn?
ings of the road independently have
been at the rate of t"?per mile, out
of which are to be met fixed chargt
of (1,527. It appears, therefore, that
if the road can be operated at 117 pur
cent, there will be a surplus, and a
larger one in proportion to tin- ec?n
oiny of operation that can be secured
above that figure. By this purchase
the Norfolk and Western give three
millions of their own preferred stock
for five millions of the Sciota Valh
and New England common, and get a
line from Ironton to Columbus. They
are rapiuly building to Ironton. and
in a very short time their lines wiil be
connected, and a new route opened
froui Columbus to the Atlantic coast.
Colonel A. S. Buford, of Richmond,
president of the Southwestern Vir?
ginia railroad, was registered at the
Carrollton Hotel. Baltimore, yester?
day, says the Baltimore Sun. Col?
onel Buford is now pushing his road,
which is projected from a connection
at Cumberland Gap with the Tennes?
see Midland road, that is now in
course of construction from Memphis
to Cumberland Gap. The Southwest?
ern Virginia road will stt*rt from Lex?
ington, Va., at which point it will
connect with the Baltimore and Ohio
and the Richmond ami Alleghany
roads. It is thought that this may
he one of the Hues to complete the
southwestern connectiomof tho Balti?
more and Ohio, and fiat Colonel Bn
ford's visit, may be in connection with
such an alliance.
During the week, certificates of
incorporation have been issued at
Charleston, W. Va., to three new
enterprises, ail undertaken by the
Norfolk and Western railroad. The
lines are laterals, each are over 150
miles in length. The Logan and
Fairview is to be built up Twelve
Pole river, in Logan county. The
Chaterawha and Guyandotte is to
extend up the valley of the Guyan?
dotte river, and the Waterfield and
Big Sandy will extend sontward down
Tug river to connect with the Cha:
teroi roads. Tho incorporators of all
these roads are F. J. Kimball, presi?
dent of tho Norfolk and Western :
Joseph I. Doran, president of the
West Virginia and Ironton road;
William C. Bullitt, of Philadelphia ;
ex-Internal Revenue Commissioner
Joseph S. Miller and W. W. Coe. It
is not at this time known when work
will be commenced on these roads,
but there is ample capital behind
them, and they will, when completed,
be lucrrative branches of that great
tree, of which the main line is the
It is said that the Roanoke and
Southern have at last decided where
they will enter the city and locate
their station and freight yards. This
has been the talk of t he * real estate
world of Roanoke for the past week,
and there has been any number of lit?
tle plumes in the market as a conse?
quence. No one could locate tho place
and rumors were as thick as leaves in
Valambrosia. Some said it was to lo?
cate at one place, others at another,
and the prices of property about the
places went up with a jump,and th< n
when the place selected was announ?
ced the prices on the property, ex?
cept that in the vicinity of the pro?
perty purchased by the Company,
went down to their normal level.
But this was not before a good deal
of property had changed hands, and
now some who had planed summer
vacations won't take them, and
others who hadn't will.
