things promised before they would
give the right of way through their
property, will now do so. We under.
e stand that they were never opposed
to the railroad passing through their
I property. and were as anxious for it as
any one, but they wanted certain con
n cession from the road, which the road
r could not well give. They have acted
magnanimously withdrawing their de
maids, and we hope everything has

which we hope have been given and
