also in progress. It will furnish trallio by giving
transportation facilities and means of travel to the
counties along tho Missouri, river. Others are'
projected ; among many, the extension of the Kan
pas City & Cameron rad to Ft. Des Moines.
" The further extension of this road irom Brown-
ille, Nebraska, to Ft. Kearney, thereby forming a
Tacific connection, will be of inestimable valuo,
and will euablo thisroidto obtain a fair share of
the j resent business of thegojd mines of tha Terri
tories, and on the completion of the Union Pacific, a
share in tho great carrying trade from Asia and
Owing to tho uncertainty attending Indiin mat
ters in Nebraska, that portion of the survey will
have to stand ever uutil spring. A much cheaper
route per mile, with lighter grades, cai ba obtained
across Nebraska, than through tho northera tier of
counties in Missouri.
f Business Froipccts of the Iioal.
Although, before deciding upon tha construc
tion of a railway, the Crst consideration would
seem to boa careful computation of the amount of
bigness already d ne npjn tho Una of road in tho
transportation of freight and passing-rs, with a
view of determining whether this would justify the
imposed expenditure. Estimates of this character
aff jrd a very uncertain index as to the actual buei
hpsi that would result undor ihe new circutn tsnces.
Judging from tbe effects produced on tbe business
of the country upon the opening of anew rail-way
in similar districts, we find new branches of trade
starting up, and the older ones stimulated by the
greater economy of transportation. Tha facilities
for traveling, induce an increase of population, not
only in tbo smaller towns ol the interior, but mora
especially in tho agricultural portion of the coun
try j and the vacant lands of the prairies become
tlx-ifty farm, causing a corresponding increase in
the agricultural products.
Upon tho opening of this road, as one instance,
the great bulk of merehandiso for tho towns of tho
inter or, now transported from Ottumwa, on the
north, and St. Joseph on tho south, by wagon, a
distance of over one hundred miles, must necessa
rily follow this roil to. Fine lumber, for building
and manufacturing purposes, now almost impossiblo
to obtain in the interior, will also form agreat item
of transportation; avast emigration, even tending
weptwor 1, not only into the Stato of Missouri, but
still further, to Nebraska, Ivinsas, and the Territo
ries, will be sources of revenue.
Upon a careful consilcration of the tab la of sta
tistics cf the population, agricultural products and
taxable 'valuation of the property of tho counties'
along the route, as w ell as those adjoining, both on
the north and south, one can not bat conclude that
tha revenue to be derived from the various sources
will justify such an expenditure as maybenocos
sary .to construct and equip this roal.
Its trafn can not be influence! by other .rontes,
there baing no nearer railroad on either side than
forty five miles, at the closest poitt, and the early
completion of this road will prevent the building of
any railroad between the Burliugton and Missouri
Rircr o 1 the north, and the Hannibal & St. Joseph
on tbe south.
Ia conclusion, 1 would etate that the limited sum
placed at my disposal, caused by the non-tulfilling
of their engagements in soma of the counties, and
he departure of my prinoipal assistant, Mr. Geo.
Brown, at a time when he could not bo replaced,
has prevented such a thorough survey and recon
noissance being made as the nature of the country
requires. I would also state that 1 do cot consider
this as the best route that can ba fonnd ; but con
sider the estimites need not be exceeded to build
the road. Tha grades can, I am certain, be mate
rially reduced, and much of the heavy work avoided.
Tbe altgneraent will compare favorably with other
ronds. Tho county-seats have all been made points
but direction has net been sacrificed for any minor
towns along the route.
In concluding mv report, I desire to express my
thanks to tbo different members of the corps, for
their promptitude and teal in tho discharge of duty
under many trying circumstances, but moro es
pecially to my assistants, Messrs. Brown and Grant;
also to many gentlemen who sa kindly tssisted me
as pioneers, and without whose valuable services I
cculd not eo quickly have carried the survey
through. Respectfully submittel,
