THE ARGUS, THUKSDAY. SEPTEMBER 17, 1891
ANOTHER RAILWAY LINE.
Prospect of a $w Railroad From
t hiraz 10 Omaiia In It the Kanta
Cbiciff.D dispatches give particulars of
the revival of the Santa Fe, or, more
properly, the Chicago, Fort Madison &
Des Moines railway project, under the
impetus of heavy crops this year. The
ruiin line is to run between Chicago and
Omaha, via. Fort Madison, and if the
promised branch to the wheat fields of
the Red River of tht North is built it will
cross the Mississippi into Rock Island
The nucleus of the main line was the
Fort Madison & "orth western narrow
cause, purchased b Chicago and eastern
c-ipiuiists undt-r foreclosure proceedings.
The !,"iu2e has been made standard, and
the road is now open and trains between
Fort Madison and L bertyvi'le are run
ning regularly from Liberty ville to O.tum
wa, a distance of 22 iniUs, the line is
graded and Hie track will be laid in a few
weeks. West of O 4 urn wa the line makes
a sir.iight shoot for Omaha, the route be
ing nor'h of the Burlington's main line
and south of the Rock Island's trans
Iowa division, about equal distance from
either, and for over 200 miles it runs
through a belt, where, for 25
miles on either side, it has no
east and west lines to compete with.
The new line will be the shortest route
from Chicago to the blue erass region of
Iowa, and it is claitred, will be the shorts
est line between Chicago and Omaha.
Ia order to reach Ct.icHgo.the Atchinson,
Topeka & Sinta Ye will be used from
Fort Madison. O. C. Wheeler, who
was formerly geneal manager of the
Santa Fe and was for over 20 years one
of the managing ofllcers of the Chicago
& Xorthwestern, is president of the new
road, which has so far kept its operations
and future plans very quiet.
The Santa Fe management has not as
yet put any money into the Chicago,
Fort Madison & Deo Moines, but a short
time ago it closed a close traffic contract
with the road to rua for 10 years, under
which a through liae between Chicago
and Omaha will be formed by the two
companies as soon as the latter is com
pleted. So far the new 1 ne has not offered a
bond nor a share of stock for sale, all the
securities issued having been absorbed by
the syndicate behin 1 the project. The
new line will be completed and opened
for freight traffic in time to move the
crops of 1892, and in fact, through pas
senger service will be started about the
8 a me time.
In closing a close traffic contract with
the Chicago, Fort Madison & Des Moines,
the Santa Fe has tied it up as an ally to
the exclusion of all other connections of
the new road. Wh le no definite plans
have been decided on as yet, it will sur
prise no one if at some time after its com
pletion the Santa Fe should absorb the
new road as it has tae Colorado Midland,
the St. Louis & San Francisco and the
Chicago, Santa Fe is California.
The project beyond Omaha is guarded
as a profound secret. It is not believed
that the road will bo permitted to stop
there any great length of time. Under
existing circumstances, there is no chance
of making a trans Missouri connection,
unless by extendinc to Sioux City, where
the Pacific short line, soon to be sold, has
its beginning. Fiooably thtse parties are
also confident that w hen the time comes
they wili be able to secure that property.
This sort of a deal would solve what has
been a long standing problen ' gainst the
Northern Pacific, and head . ft its most
tormidable rival, thu Great X irthern. It
would also put bott the -jta Fe and
Northern Pacific in position to even up
old scores and heret.fter bold the Union
Pacific down to a level.
