The forenoon was given over chiefly
to the otislilerntlon of the Rutland
railroad's proposition. This load did
not present n compromise plan but ad
hered to Its former lan with few mod
ifications. This plan, It will be re
membered, provides for tbe Rutland
mnln line to run from King street
through Lake street to a point nonr
tbe Centrnl Vermont round bouse, cnll-
Ing for n cut across College street o' 1
1.1 feet. It also provides for overhead
crossings at College and King streets, I
but does not provide for any elimina
tion of the grade crossing at Maplo
street. It puts the depot nt the foo
of Main street, ns now traveled, nnd
fiO feet west of Battery street, nnd In
order to board the cms at th- s'ntion
It requires a stairway 25 feet In heigh",
or 50 steps of six Indies i!-c ea. n j
The Rutland proposition Is to take a
slice of considerable width off the west
side of Lake street, from College -trei-t
north to a point near tho Centrnl Ver- j
mnnt roundhouse. By this plan this por- '
Hon nf Lake street would be cut down to j
nhotit tlie present level of the ground ,
where the carriages now stand nt th
present depot nrd cut all tlie way to the i
present level of the Central Vermont and 1
Rutland tracks going north. The Rut-j
land plnn Is to build a depot and station ,
itself nnd mnke the Central Vermont road
practically Its tennnt. It does not provide'
for n joint use of yard trackage nnd
yard privileges. By this plnn a shifting
trnck would run through the proposed
The afternoon wns given up to a con
sideration of a new plan for elevated
tracks for through passenger nnd freight
trains nnd the elimination of all grade
crossings, including that at Maple street.
This was a compromise plnn offered hv
President Fttzhugh. It places the depot
nt the foot of Mnln street but 150 feet
west of Battery street, and so situated
that passengers can enter most trains
on n level with the first floor of the de
pot !t provides for three main lines run
ning past tho depot and one shorter line
enmlng from the north and extending up
to tlin north end of the depot. The de
pot Is to be 50 hy 150 f(.(.t in size, con
structed of rriek or stone, and well ap
pointed. There Is practically no differ
ence between the two roads as to the
size of the depot, and material for con
struction, but theie W a great difference
in the arrangenien for passengers hoard
ing and alighting from trains. This Cen
trnl Vermont compromise plan also pro
vides for under passage- for persons wait
ing to take trains on either of tlie two
westerly trucks, but there Is no crossing

land yaid and southern approaches to
the depot was also based upon tho fact
thnt the road owned land In the south

contemplation a purpose to have a

so by use of the old Burlington nnd
Lamoille trnck, nnd that what was done
