BtllrwMl Tnrougb Death Valley, It is rumored in railroad circles that it is the intention of the Santa Fe to build a branch to Eldorado Canyon from a point on the main line neat Ibex, eight miles west of The Needles. The line will pass up through the val ley to Searchlight and will then veer around to the west and pass on up the canyon. This line would open up one of the richest mineral regions on the Pacific coast and would prove to be a big paying short line. Besides Search light and the Canyon it would reach the mines of the river section that are now inaccessible. If the road was built the business of Eldorado Canyon alone would maintain it, while the profits would come from the intermed iate business of Searchlight and the river mines.—Pioche Record.
