WANT THAT ROAD
People Along Route From Aledo
to Buffalo Prairie Willing
NO PRICE HELD TOO STEEP
Snprintenlnt McCnlloufch Returns
to Monmouth With Opti
Monmouth. 111., May 19. V. W.
McCullough returned last night from
a 6tay of sevt ral days with the en
gineering party which is running a
line from Alt-do to Buffalo Prairie
to ascertain what it would cost to
build the road which is so earnestly
sought by the people of that vicin
ity. Mr. McCullough was surprised
to learn how anxious the people up
that way were for a railroad and
he says he hardly sees how the Rock
Island Southern people are going to
get out of constructing the extension
of the Aledo line.
The boosters who are working for
the road say that all the It. I. S.
officials hare to do is to make them
a proposition and they will accept It
and Indications are that what they
say Is true. Everybody along the
proposed route is determined to get
a railroad and they promise not only
to raise the money but will make
any sacrifice of their lands to get a
right of way.
KEADV TO GIVE 5,0O0.
One plajr-e where the surveying
party stopped for dinner the man of
the house did not bat an eye when,
he was told that che company had
figured that he would give $5 000
for the road and promptly replied
that if he was called on for that
amount he would pay it. Another
man at whose place they stopped for
a drink of water asKeu that the line
t:e run close enough to his house to
allow him to travel In bad weather.
without being exposed to the ele
ments for any great length of time.
He was Informed that according to
the survey the road would pass right
through his fine orchard. His reply
was. "That's all right, then i will
have two orchards."
Not a man Been by the surveyors
had any objections to the road going
over any part of his land and the
community seems to be unanimous
in its desire to have a chance to ship
Its stock and grain and have a pas
senger service that will allow the
people to come and go at trequent
