The jury in the case of Mrs. Martin vs
the Chicago , Burlington &Quincy R. R.
Co. , brought in a verdict for the full
amount of damages claimed , amounting
to $5,000 , the trial coming of Tuesday
and Wednesday this week. The plain
tiff's husband was killed in a collision
between the B. & M. and the St. Joe &
G. I. R. R. a few years ago. Batty ,
Casco & Dungan were attorneys for the
plaintiff , and the attorneys for the R. R.
were Gen. Dilworth and Mr. Morlan of
McCook. Hastings Tribune.
Near Wauneta on the Culbertson ex
tension of the B. & M. a fine gravel bed
has been discovered. The country is
quite rolling on the Frenchman , which
the railway follows for many miles , in
one of these bluffs. The upper soil is
being cleared off and a large number of
.hands are now engaged in getting out
gravel. Some six or eight cars are taken
out daily. This makes a cheap and ex
cellent ballast and the main track is re
ceiving the benefit. Lincoln Journal.
General Manager Holdrege and Super
intendent Calvert have been in the
western part of the state. They report
everything in flourishing condition. In
answer to a question Mr. Holdrege said
it was not likely that the extension from
Imperial to Holyoke would be finished
for some time. He expressed the belief
however , that within five or six years
there would be several millions more of
acres put into cultivation in the western
part of the state. He felt sure there was
an era of prosperity just before Nebraska.
Train No. 6 , the Denver day train , ar
riving here at 10:10 p. m. , is evidently
regarded as an important one. Super
intendent Calvert came in on it from
McCook , the other night. For some
cause there had been a slight delay and
it was a few minutes late. This train
runs very rapidly through Colorado and
western Nebraska. Even between Ox
ford and Lincoln the time is not slow ,
being an hour and forty minutes less
than that of the flyer , which arrives here
at 2 p. m. The time on this train is so
close that even the loss of a minute is
felt , and every employe has orders to
expedite the service at every point.
