They expected to get passenger runs, or

Notwithstanding the close times sev
eral railway extension projects which
have been under contemplation are being
revived, owing to the cheapness of steel
rails and other railway construction ma
terial. In the past few days the price of

quite a war is now on between the man
ufacturers. It is intimated that owing
to the unsettled condition of its Union
Pacific connections the Northwestern
company is considering an extension of
its system to Denver from Hastings,Neb.
That corporation has plenty of money to
build the extension and equip it, and
there is a probability that some steps
may be advanced if matters are not sat
