The time is near at hand when the
thought of what will be the best and

particular friends pert ades the mind of

The Alede Times contains an article
oa "Railroad Projects." in which the
Santa Fe and Jacksonville Southeastern
R til way companies fljure piominently in
the matter of grades, surveys, etc. The
Times realizes the fact that there are even
some chances of the failure of a railway
building project after it has been decided
upon. The most readily built ra'lroads
are those constructed on paper, and
though the extent of those bnilt on land
is immense and the cities they have
builded are legion the mileage of the
paper railroads is yet greater and the
cities and villages which have thus been
made competing points and division
headquarters outnumber the visible stars.
Continuing tbe Times says:
Wi'.h this introduction by our special
civil engiteer, iust returned from a
personal inspection of the route, we
are prepared to start with tbe Jack
sonville Southeastern at Havana,
lrom which point it has three arms
reading out to Peoria, Springfield and
