"In the absence of more definite data

"Gordonsvllle. without a doubt, seems
SB he the logical terminus, as far as
Richmond s advantage Is concerned."
said President T P. Bryan of the Bual
??>> Men's Club, after an inspection
of the plans. "F-om that point traffic
naturally moves to this city, while from
Orange most of It would be deflected
to Washington and Baltimore, where
the trad* of that section Is now going.
The Pi.s'.nees Men's Club stands ready
to co-operate with the other commer?
cial bod.es of the city in securing the
routing of the road through Gordons
"The fact that Gordonsv'lle Is nine
miles nearer Richmond than Orange,
and in a direct line south, would un?
doubtedly deflect traffic this way. ' said
F.. p. H-tchktes gene-al freight agent
of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway
