Sume time ago we gave some items with regard to a traction company which bad heen securing riirnts ol way along sbut Boston. At the time very little could be found out about it, even the farmers who had given the rights of way knowing nothing further. Last evening Mr. Hodges, who is vice-president of the company, was in the city, and it looks very encour aging for the road from what he says It is the line proposing to come up from Hamilton via Camden . to Eaton, thence to Richmond by way of Boston. He 6aid that the company had ample capital, and if they had no further difficulties in getting into Richmond than now ap peared they would have cars running in here by the middle of next sum mt r. Being asked whether this line had anything to do with the Schwab line he Eaid that it did not; and in re sponse to the question as to whethi r it belonged with the proposed eastern line be said not at all. He said that they have the survey practically com pleted, and the rights of way secured for most of the line. He did not ap prebend any difficulty in getting the rights of way for the entire distance. Thev are not using the roads very much, except for crossings, but get rights of way at the side from the farmers. After leaving Boston they intend to come as near stiaight as possible t: Richmond and will pass along the east side of the Dilks farm, which they, strike at the southeast corner, thus coming west of the Wernle home, on the Fairmount and Wernle road. They wish to come across the Taylor farm south of the city and en ter the city at the foot of south six teenth street and run up sixteenth street to Main. - - - Mr. Hodges will remain here and in this vicinity for several days, and proposes to have the most of the pre liminaries settled before he leaves the city if possible. He is a busi cess man, knows the traction busi ness thoroughly, and apparently means business from the word go. Health in the Philippines. 5an Francisco, Cal., Oct. 2.
