But we aro now as sured by Boston capitalists, who have looked tho ground over, that If tho road could bo built for a certain max imum price per railo, they would ac cept It. Consequently a survey was mado of about two-thirds tho distance from Lowell to Belding. Tho survey and apportionate cost of tho road were submitted to them, but they returned it saying that tho road would not justify that expenditure. Now another sur vey Is being made, and the surveyor thinks that almost a surfaco grade can bo established. Tho right of way has nearly all been secured, and tho survey will reach Beldin- by Christmas. Tho present road will be called tho Grand Itapids, Bolding .v Saginaw, and will bo a direct lino to Kalamazoo and Chi cago, and wo think that it will be a saving on freight rates, as the distance saved from Greenville to Chicago is from twenty-five to thirty miles.'
