ing to a statement made by
Klwood Bruner of Nome, Alas

legislature. Mr. Brunor, who
has been in Washington for the
past four mouths looking after
several bills before Congress in
which the legislature of Alaska
is interested, said, before leav?

been the constant aim of the
legislature of Alaska to keep

government-owned railroad

was most generally conooded
that the moment tlie lull mak?

was wrecked on the Virginia
and Southwestern Bailway Sat?
urday afternoon about 2:30 just
beyond the furnace,the engine
and t hree cars leaving the t rack,
t he cars being badly demolished.
All the train crew escaped in?
jury by jumping olT except the
engineer, who had two ribs
fractured. Traffic was blocked
until:! o'clock Sunday morning
A loose rail was the cause of
the accident.
Nearly Com?
Work is Being Pushed on
Elkhorn Division to East?
ern Kentucky.
The Manufacturer's Record
Two new coal routes are fast
approaching completion. Una
is the extension of the Clinch
Held railway from Dante, Va.,
to Elknorn City, Ky., anil the
other is from Winchester to
Irving, Ky., on the Louisville
& Nashville railroad. Tin- first
will enable the coal of the
Clincbtield region in Virginia
to be hauled over a direct line
to the (Ireat Lakes, connection
being made at 101kborn with the
Ohesapeak <S: Ohio railway for
Chicago and other lake ports,
and the second will afford the
railroad which is building it a
low-grade line of easy grades
and curves such as are now de?
manded for the economical
transportation'of coal by rail.
This latter will carry the pro?
duct of Mines in the Klkhorn
region of Kentucky, which also
has an outlet on the oilier side
of the mountain, by way of the
Chesapeake ?.t Ohio. But there
are many openings in prospect
on the line of the Louisville &
Naebvillo, which is now build?
ing spurs to some of them, and
the new extension will be of
great value to its owner.
The fast approaching comple?
tion of the Clinchfield railroad
I as originally planned directs at
tentiou to the work which is
being done in its behalf, looking
to the construction of an up-to
date coal-handling plant on
tidewater at Clarleston. The
road has there a superior site
upon the water-front, and plans
have been prepared to build
yards and a pier for the trans?
shipment of the fuel from the
cars to vessels. As the Clincb?
tield has no line of its own into
Charleston, it is anticipated
that the Seaboard Air Lino will
give it entrance there, because
interests in that system are
now building a railroad from a
connection with the Seaboard
to that port. This new line is
the Charleston Northern, which
is an extension of what are
locally known as the Bonsai
roads, and which leave the
Seaboard at Hamlet, N. (.'., ex?
tending down in South Cnro
llina via McCall and Dillon,
finally reaching Andrews on
the railroad into Georgetown?
the Georgetown & Western?
from which station the Charles?
ton Northern is now being built
southward to Charleston itself.
While this route may be used
immediately upon the comple?
tion of this construction, it is
expected that an extension will
bo built from the end of one of
the Bonsai roads at Jefferson,
S. C, northwest to Monroo, N.
C, thus making a very direct
route from Bostic, on the Clinch
field, over the Seaboard via
Lincoln!.m and Charlotte and
Monroe, N. C , and Florence, S.
C, to the tidewater terminal.
Ab interests in the Seaboard
are also interested in the Clinch
field, nothing is more naturally
expected than that the Clinch
field, iuBteod of building dowu
from Spartanburg, S. C, as has
been propoaed, woultl avail itself
of tho Seaboard rou'e. oppnr
ently so well suited to its pur
I pose, notwithstanding that it

I Bostic-Charlotte-M itiroe F I o r
ence line would be that ramings

there are several important
