Palco Wednesday to work up interest in the southwest extension. A conference of a fe'w business men was held on Tuesday evening and the report made by Burnham that a Chicago construc tion company had positive assurance that the road could be financed and put through as rapidly as the bonds can be : voted, the surveys made and the actual work performed. It . would seem from what Mr. Burnham lias learned bji ti recent conference with railroad men in Chicago, that the project is a sure thing if tbe peo ple take hold with a will and do their part. It will be necessary to raise $7500 by subscription to make the surveys and pay the expenses of bond elections. Our people, and we feel confident those of Palco and Wa Keeney and the intervening territory, will do their part eagerly. This is a revival of the scheme discussed for several years of an extension of the Central Branch to Scott City or some other point on the mainline of the Missouri Pacific. The company has always spoken favorably of the plan but was restrained from taking hold of it by virtue or the old agreement ' among western roads not to invade each other's territory. The U. P. has : violated the agreement by building from Topeka to Marysville, giving the Missouri Pacific the right to re taliate. It is probable that if this line is built it will be operated by the Missouri Pacific; if not there is a strong probability that the Chicago & Northwestern, whose lines run to. Superior, Nebraska, will want - it. The new charter about to be taken out will provide for. a line from Su perior, Nebraska, to some point southwest. The present point, how ever, is for a road from Stockton to Wa-Keeney and on to a point on the Missouri Pacific. Definite proposi tions from reliable concerns, which make the construction of railroads a business, will be laid before the peo ple of certain townships in Rooks and Trego counties within a few days.

Wind sor (Colorado) Poudre Valley. John S. Dawson, special assistant attorney general says that tbe adop tion at the last election of the consti tutional amendment relating to spec ial legislative bills would prove ef . great benefit to the state. "For many years members of the legislature seemed to have had a bob by of introducing special bills, which only affected their own eeunty or dis trict. The new amendment prohibits this sert or legislation and it is to be expected that the- members oX tbe house and senate will now make, amendments and revise tbe general law whieh..contain objectionable fea tares. The new rule will result in having a much simpler and a revised ' code of laws in this state and we will not have all that great pile of spec ial billf." - - Verbeck & Lucas have several of these fine Peninsular steel , ranges.
