It is Stated the Greet Northern Has J Absorbed the Seattle & Mon- b tant Railroad. THROUGH TRAINS--ST. PAUL TO SEATTLE F J. J. Hill Elected President and One of the Trustees of the Seattle & N Montana. e1 w A Snowelide in Colorado Buries Four T Persons Alive -M iners to the Ite-rue. ri hl it StcArriw, Wash.. Feb. 26.-It is stated r that the Great Northern & Seattle and ri Montana railroads have practically con- ri solidated cnd that through truins will it soon le run from St. Paul to Seattle vi a Winnipeg iver the Canadian Pacific. the rr Fairiaven & Southern and the Lake g d Shore & Eastern. A meeting of the stock b ; holders of the Seattle & Montana was ii held today. The following were elected ft 5 trusteea: J.. .. tHuis nd WV. P. Clouch a of St. Paul, h. t) Graves and D. II. Gil r man of Seattle. The trust eis then elected a R. were J. .1. hill, president, and W. P. c Clounh, vice-president. THE OREAT NOiTHiEitN. Rapid Progress Mtatdi on the Weatern a Extenusion. I, u COl. W. P. Clough,vice-presidentof the it Great Northern, in a recent interview in Ii Seattle, gave the following interesting In- kl formation of the pragresa of the western w extension and the pfoposed Puget sound d line: "The line tainr here to Portland is co M yet under consideratiou. The arrargemient i Ietweei the Union Pacific and the Guest - Northern contempilated that the latter r should have an opportunity to examine ii and consider the proposed routes before going on with construction, and the Great Northern has never had that chan: e v, till within the past few weeks. The sub- o ject of the route is now under considera tion and, being a matter of very great consequence, will receive very careful ie study. Whether the result will be the s 5 resumption of work on the existing line ° or the abandonment of that line and the location of a new one, is something that cannot ie decided for some little time It , yet. Examination are now being made a with the view of getting at all the pus sibiliiies afforded by the country between ri - the two points. "Netther Mr. Bogue nor Mr. Beckler ri has yet been given authoritative charge n over the construction of the line, so far as the Great Northern is coucerned. The Smain line fronm the east is progresseter with great rapidity. One hundred ad thirty miles of track have been 1aid from u the esatern end, and the grade has been A complet d from the end of the track to the niumnit of the Rocky mountains. ii U Front the summit to the Kiotenal river C the line is covered with graders. As fast ) as the location is decided on the line will g b le put under contract and covered with 1 men. The line has not been decided on g further than th9 eastern line of Wash. ington, and it will not ie practicab:e to do so until a decision has been made a4 to the pass in the Cascade range which will be adopted. That will probably be h decided within the ni xt ninety days. We a li do not expect to find a pass In the Cat eadis which we can traverse without aP tun tel. p The expectation is that the terminii i shops and yards will be at Thompson'r n Cove, and in all probability they will lie a the main ones for the sound. ihe tnh- k cial terminus of the Great Northern has been declired in its Pacific extension u inortgaie to lie at Seattle atid Swias fti ii long ago. We are making every effort to git our transcontinental line finiahed it by J.an. 1, 1503, and by that titte, I trust, ri it Portland line will be finished. Still, that may le somewhat delayed by viriousi complications." SI . tn NNOW-SLIDE IN COLORADO. tl Four Per-ons a iuried Alive by asn Ave- f lanecc. CRESTED lt 'rm:, Col., Feb. 26.-A snow-slide swept over the Bunllion King c V mine at Irwin yesterday, carrying the d boarding-house and supt. IRipells' dwelling duwn.
