New Railroad Out of Brattleboro. A project contidning po.sibilitios whoso Offcct on Brattlcboro's ftituro cannot bo ovcr-cslimatcd brought civil cngincers of tho Bouton & Mainb railroad to that town last week. Thoso mcn aro undcr orders to mako a survoy of tho tor ritory bctwcon Brattleboro and Ilinsdalc, N. H., to dotcrmino tho foasibility of a branch lino of thc Boslon it Maiiio systom ovcr this routc to competo with thc 10 jnilc strip of road betwccn Brattleboro and South Vernon controllcd by thc Contral Vermont. It is bcliovcd in local rail road circlcs that tho movo is a part of a schenio 011 thc part of tho Boston & Mnlne Now York, New Ilaven & Hartford in tcrcsts to put thomsclvcs in a position to coniicto with tho Grand Triink system in case it. builds its propoed oxtcnsion from I'almcr, Mass., to Providcncc. Tho cngincers who havo conio hcrc this week aro undcr ordcrs to go to Windsor aftcr complcting tho Brattlcboro-Ilinsdalc sur voy, and this givcs crcdcncc to tho story that a survoy will be made from there to Whilo Rivcr Junction with tho idca of parallcling thc Contral Vermont at that point also. A road built from Brattleboro to a point 011 tho Ashuolot division of thc Boston & Muiuo bctwcen Hinsdalo and South Ver non would mako tho milcago from there to tho junction only slightly moro than it is by way of tho Ccntral Vermont, and if thc B. & M. could sccuro a connecting link bc twcen Windsor and White Rivcr Junction also, through train scrvice betwccn New York and tho White Mountains could bo maintaiued wilhout rcgard for thc Ccntral Vermont. Tho grcatest obstaclo in tlio way of a Boston ifc Muiuo lino from Brat tleboro south would bo fuiding a suitablc cntranco to this town, but in vicw of tho incrcased railway facilities that would fol low it is safo to say tliat thc busiucss in tcrests of this town would do almost any tliinsr within reason to help thc Boston & Maine in tliis mattcr. Thc project would ;noan not only competing lincs betwccn there and New York, but witliout doubt through scrvico betwccn theru and Boston by way of Kecne and tho Chcshiio division ofjtlio Boston & Maine.
