NI2V YORK March 16 The project of
the Seaboard Air J Ine Railroad C unipanv
and other Interests to build a new line or
railroid between Richmond and Washing
ton has been abandoned and m ntrangc
ment Ins be en made bv whicli Fix ellfTer
ent lallnlaos will joliitl own and use the
existing railroad facilities between thes
two points
The six eumpanles that hive combined
In this joint ontrol of aout one hundred
and tvvent miles of railroad are the Penn
SIvanla the Southern the Chesapeake
and Ohio the Seaboard Air Line the At
lantic Coast Line and the Richmond Po
tomac and rrederlcksburg R illroad Corn
pan
The last named companv owns the road
from Quantlco to Richmond and the
PennsIvanla Railroad besides controlling
the Richmond Fredericksburg and Po
tomac owns the existing line rrom Wash
ington to Quantlco The Joint arrange
ment just perfected Is a concession on the
part of the Pennsjlvanla road
There Is the best of authority for the
statement that the new Issue of JlOlwiOTO
of 5 per cent gold bonds authorized b the
Se iboard Air Une Railroad Company has
been taken by Hallgareen Co and Vcr
mle Co of this city The particular
of tho transaction are promised earl next
w eek
It was learned today that the Seaboard
Air Line Is about to launch Into a scheme
which is more or lets philanthropic in
Its nature for the benefit of the chicken
and cattle raisers of the Southern States
throufch which its roads run The com
pany villi so into the cattle and chicken
business with a view to improving those
businesses and the Southern farmers will
bo the beneficiaries of the scheme The
plan as outlined nt present Is for the
companj to own bulls and roosters of tho
fntst ard most aristocratic breeds which
will be loaned tofarmersdcslrlngthemfree
of charge for the period of ninety das
An farmer who wants a rooster or a
bull can get one by merely sending an
application to the company
The Seaboard Air Line has already lie
gun to buy roosters and bulls In large
numbers nnd It is now sending to pros
pective beneficiaries a circular letter set
ting forth the different breeds In stock
and naming the conditions under which
they can be obtained Iho letter Is as
follows
The Industrial department ef the Sea
board Mr Line have the rollowlng breeds
of full blooded roosters Light Brahmas
black Langshans and black MInorcas
which the proposo to loan to those who
are located on the line of the Sealioard
Air Une sstem for the purpose of Im
proving their breed of chickens These
roosters will be loaned to parties for the
term of nlnctv das which time will be
ample to t the breed of same It Is ex
Iieeted that parties who have the use of
said roosters for which there will be no
charge will see tliat they are well taken
care of and not allow eel to oe disturbed
bv an other roosters that they may h ive
on their place
It Is ImiMirtant in ord r to get ii good
pure breed of chickens to let the roosters
above mentioned exclusively run In a pen
with not more than fifteen hens Those
desiring the servlc of any one of the
above named roosters will apply to me
at the address given below Applications
will be recorded and served as they conio
In turn 1 am very truly yours
J STRANG
Assistant Chief Industrial -Agent Ports
mouth Va
The the circulation of the compans
bulls is in cliarge of the same agent and
circulars telling of the breeds on hand
and the conditions governing the loan of
them are similar to those Tor the roosters
In order to ensure the widest poslble
circulation for these valuable loans nnd
the gre atct lieneflt to subscribers the
companv hs directed Its local station
agents to talk up the scheme and Interest
the local f lmcrs In kine and chicken cul
ture b ji lithographs and booklets will
be iss d n 1 these will Va vvldel dis
tributed
The onlj possible weakness of the
scheme is that the company falls to fur
nish a Iwok of rules telling how bulls
and chickens can be kept from lighting
As et farmers generally have failed to
discover anv such means and now It looks
as If It was up to the eompanv A grain
of comfort mav be found In the reasonable
supposition that the Seaboard Air Line
hulls and roosters bring of vtrj sup rlir
breed mi have superior manners to the
plebeian bulls and remsters
