The new company, in which the
Walshes are interested, proposes to
handle soft coal from points on the
Hennepin and anthracite coal from
the Hocking valley region, making
this a distributing point for the Mis
sissippi valley. It ia likely also that
the Rock Island Southern road will
be used in connection with the boats,
