Now, that our railroad is completed a shorthlstory of it may prore Interest Iritr to those who have witnessed its checkered course, if they have not mln gled In its many contests. In 1352 the first survey was made. The road was to run from Galllpolla to Chllllcothe, through Jackson. This was called the Shaw survey. The next project was a road from Hamden down to the month of Campaign Creek and there to dl verge,- one branch to Galllpolls, -the other to Pomeroy. This road was sur veyed by Graves and Manstleld. This survey was made upon private subscrip tions In our city. Both of these projects tell through. On the 25th day of February, 1870 application wai made' for a railroad charter from Logan to Galllpolls, to be called the Galllpolls, McArthur & Col umbus Railroad Company, and to run through the counties of Gallia, Jackson, Vinton and Hocking. (This was the Little Raccoon Creek route.) The cor norators were E. Oeletombe, Wm. Sho- ber, C. D. Bailey, Lewis Muenz, An drew Wolf, D. Will, J. W. DeLay, Thos. Bi Davis and U.S. Bundy; the capital stock was $1,500,000, of $50 each.

This corporation graded on the road until it found Its inability to complete It, when the road was transferred to the Colum bus fc Galllpolls Railroad Company. This company contracted with HIU & McKechney to complete the road. The contractors did a vast amount of work, but the new corporation being unable to pay, the road was sold on proceed ings In. foreclosure to the Ohio & West Virginia Railway Co., which has since completed it. The county of Gallia and particularly the City of Gallipolls, has contributed a great deal of money to build this road, and no man desei ves so much credlt for his tireless and ceaseless efforts to se cure Its building as Mr. E.
