Virginia will continue to have ten congressman under tho provisions of the apportionment bill which passed the house today. The Campbell bill re? taining the present number and members in the house of repre? sentatives would have reduced Virginia's representation by one member, Tennessee's by one, und North Carolina by tine, while retaining tin: present number in West Virginia. The Crumpacker bill, which was finally passed, retains the present membership in each of these States, except West Vir ginia, and increases its repre? sentation by one. Congressman Austin, of Ten? nessee, made an appeal in be? half of Congressman Slenip, saying that Mr Slenip and his father had worked for years to make their district Republican and that he should not now be thrown out of the bouse. He asserted that the Republicans would have to make their gains in the border States in the future if they were to gain at nil ami that to cut down the representation of these border States in Congress ami in the electoral college would be bail policy for the Republicans. The bill was passed by Demo cratic and Republican votes. It takes effect March 4, 1013, so that tho next congress elected will be under its provisions.

Acworth, recognized as the highest authority on railways in Great Britain and an author of several standard works ..n railroads of Great Britain and America, testified before the Kailroad Securities Commission in New York ro cently that after a two months study of American railways, "It has been my opinion that in actual economy of operation the railways of tho United States are first in the world, in the number of tons per ear; cars per train; in tho fullest utilization of locomotives; in the obtaining of the greatest measure of result for each unit of expenditure, they are not. equaled by the railways of any other nation."

This would make one of the most beautiful highways in the whole country as well as a very serviceable one.

This road would be less than one hundred miles in length.
