Town is lleing Mover Two Miles The novel sight of a town being picked up bodily and moved to a new location can now be witnessed at Bronte, in Coke county. The town consists of several hundred people and a number of substantial busi ness houses and public ouildings, but it is located two miles from the Kan sas City, Mexico and Orient railway, now building through the Panhandle section. As the railway would not come to the town, the town decided to go to the railroad. ι: \ι\ uns ( itoi's I ni ti h(«hhI >ii (ιΙίήΙ Need of M«»iMuri And (·<«ηΙ \ telil Ι» \«ιιιτ<1. Maypearl Texas.

Hi.t7.ow Valley Railway company «111 lo<at«· lis gen eral offices in Kort Worth Railroaders of ih·· state have uni versally been under the Impression that the general off lie» would be' located in the southern portion of the state, probably at Houston This opinion bas prevailed for several reasons One of them Is that the majority of the Texas gulf lines have their general offices In the southern portion of the state and il was expected that the Boll Weevil route would follow suit. However, this Impression has been dissipated by a discovery made yes terday that Mr. Sweeney, vice presi dent and general manager of the road, was looking about in the Pan ther City for quarters suitable for general offices. It is learned that Mr. Sweeney is encountering much difficulty in se curing just what he desires. All buildings now in course of construc tion are due to be completed several months hence and Mr. Sweeney as serts that the Boll Weevil route must have quarters by Sept I, at which time trains will be in operation through to the gulf However, it is well known fact, say railroad men, that when Col. Sweeney goes after anything he usually brings it back. ' And it is highly probable that he ; will land a location for the offices 1 in the not far off distant future ! There has been a great deal of variance in opinions as to the exact , time when the Boll Weevil route will ι 1 reach Fort Worth, but Mr. Sweeney, ι who is in position to know better • ! than anyone else, positively asserts I that trains will be running in here - by September t. s !

From the same quarries from which it comes was taken the stone that built the Galveston jetties and also the thousands of carloads of rock composing the great seawall. For years there was a constant move ment of stone from the quarries of Granite Mountain through Hou^on and Galveston. The government is paying the freight, likewise all other expenses Incident to the jetty work at Velasco. The freight rate it may he observed, is low and while the movement is large and prolonged it is not a source of great profit to the roads. The haul is for a distance of nearly 100 miles, it being from Granite Mountain on the Austin and North western branch through Austin, then down the Houston and Texas Cen tral to Houston, where the shipments are delivered to the International and Great. Northern and are taken over Hie Velasco branch to Velasco. There are yet about a thousand cars of the stone to move or about ι 4 0 train loads. This is a big move I ment but it is still an insignificant I one compared to that which was in Icident to the building of the Galves Iton jetties and more recently the sea I wall Houston Chronicle.
