While: such flattering results have been
obtained in this line, there is a great ilea!
of interest manifested in the Midland I'a
cilic project. Matters in that quarter are
not so encouraging, but s.ill it, seems
there is no danger of a lapse of this en
tcrprisc, as the following extract from a
Sioux City Journal interview with Sen-|
ator Pettigrew would seem to indicate
re a re 1 1 0 el an it
riorrit'* Duty.
Rapid City Republican: Tim Pierm
FKKU PKKSS, coinnmniing on tin* ipion
tions of the Northern 1'arilic and the ac
tion of Rapid City in the eastern railway
premises, says:
If no blocks or stumbling stones are
thrown in the way, the road from Aber
deen will be completed and in operation
to Pierre before l)ee. 1. This means not
only the road to Pierre, bin beyond to the
lilack Hills. In view of the action taken
recently by the people of Rapid City,
Pierre is in duty bound to jro on with the
enterprise only as yet partly completed,
and thus prove the «oud faith that I1&9
been reposed.
If the capital city rises to this emer
gency, as she has to so many earlier ones,
and the road is completed this year, her
people will at once notice the difference
between a capital at a river terminal and
having 200 miles of rails, live towns and
active settlement west of the city and the
mineral and fuel wealth of the Hills to
draw upon.

must lie said that just at present the
prospects do not look very flattering,
don't believe that the money can be had
to build this year. I don't believe that
the Illinois Central will build it or the I
proposed Sioux City extension you sug
gest. If the line from Sioux City to Rapid
City is built it will have to bo built with
Sioux City money—that's my opinion,
But the Midland I'acilic is going 10 be I
built—it's only a question of time. There
is 110 more feasible route that was ever
