PLATTSMOOTH , Neb. , August 30.
The formal test of the new railway
iridgo joining the B. & JL and C. ,
B. & Q. , took place this morning. AH
'lattemouth ' ia in holiday attire ard
jy 10 o'clock the hills adjacent to ( he
now and bcnutiful structure was lini ct
with people. On the iowa bank the
' .irmcis turned out with teams and
'amilfes and over 2000 "persons wai o
present. At 9 o'clock a special train
containing oflicials of the C. , B. & Q.
from Chicago , arrived at Pacific
Junction , and shortly after
wards crossed over the bridge
to the Nebraska side. It was followed
by the B. & M. Bf-e ial , which crossed
the bridge early this morning and met
the officers of the Burlington road.
As the trains finished the croasirg
eight heavy engines of the C. B. & Q <
road approached the eastern span of
the bridge and crossing slowly to the
east span in sections of four waited
fdr thd word Jo cotiplft. At the given
signal the eight engines joined them
selves on the fottr hundred foot
eastern span , making the test weight
4lo ions distributed ovci2d feet of
the span , the result was a magnificent
p.oof of the solidity of the structure.
The engineers then measured the
deflection and a photograph waa taken
of thebridpe at tlio moment the test
was taken. The engines then moved
to the second span where the
trial proved equally satisfactory
and the "all steel" bridge across
the Missouri river at
Plattsmouth waa declared open. The
teat was more satisfactory than was
anticipated , the deflection from a level
when the immense weight of 440 tons
was placed upon the span wss only
three inches , and when the engines
were removed tlio bridge resumed itu
origiual position. The bridge , built
of iron and stool , fry : U)00K ) j .g.
It consists of 1440 toot of an'irtm via
duct joined to thrco deck spans 200
feet in length and west 'of trmt to
wards Uio Nebraska shore and over
the river proper two spans of 400 feet
each , all steel truss. The cut through
the bank on the Nebraika side is in
some places CO feet deep. The piers
of the bridga rise SO feet above low
water markJ and sink thirty feet be
low the level of the river. The bridge
waa constructed by thu Keystone
Bridge Co. , of Philadelphia , George
S. Morrison , chief engineer ;
n. W. Parkhurat , Orat as

The second bridge over the Missouri ,
connecting Iowa and Nebraska , is
completed and the test of its ability
to bear the enormous loads of Ne

rejoicing in this new connecting link
between her boundaries and the east ,
and a largo number of Nebiaskans
yesterday crowded the streets of
Plattsmouth and lined the high bluCTs
of the Missouri to witness the trial
test of the beautiful structure which
joins Plattsmouth with the Iowa
At an early hour In the morning
the farmers from the neigh
boring country came pouring into the
busy little town. The streets wore an
air of general holiday activity. Across
the Misoufi ; which at this point
narrow to a respectably do p and rapid
current , teams filled with families
clustered along the river side , and
hundreds of interested spectators
thrcnged the banks. Shortly after
8 o'clock the B. & M. special from
Omaha , bearing oflicials of the road ,
arrived in Plattsmouth and , sweeping
through the deep cut in the bank
which marks the approach to the
bridge , passed on the structure and
crosied to the Iowa side , where a
special , consisting of the C. , B. Q.
coach 50 , Pullman coach "Rochester"
and the magnificent dining car "San
Francisco , " filled with oflicials of the
Burlington road , was awaiting their
By this time all Plattsmouth seem
ed to have deserted the town , and
with ono accord started for the bridgo.
The cut was filled with people ; the
biukswere lined with spectators eager
to witness the trial , and even the top
of the superstructure itself wai bhck
with employes of the road. At a lit *
tie after 10 , the two trains bearing
the railroad oflicials crossed the bridge
tr the Nebraska side and halted near
the bank. Immediately in their rear
came eight engines and benders ot the
C. , B. & Q. railroad , each weighing
sixty-two tons , and in two sections of
four each , slowly crawled along the
iron trestle work.
The excitement of both oflicials
and spectators was now at its height.
The enormous weight ot almost a mil *
lion pounds was about to bo di3lribu-
ted over40a feet of iron lattize work ,

rhero was a moment of susponsj and
the signal wna given. At the word
the eight engines coupled and then
moved slowly on to the eastern span ,
which they covered from ono end to
the other , of fifteen minutes
waa made amid the shrieks of the
stenm whistles from the two transfer
boats on the river below. The bridge
engineers busied themselves during
the interval in measuring the effect
of the weight upon the strtiC tire , To
their great saliafaclion , a Bor de
flection of only thron inches could bo
noted , and when the envies , a few
momenta later , moved on the west
span the vacated truss resumed its
original position. The test on the
Nebraska sidb epan proving equally"
satisfactory , the bridge was declared
approved , and a perfect pandemonium
of steam whistles split the air with
their no ! ' y enthuslaglil.
was commenced in the spring of 1870 ,
when the work was begun upon
the caissons for ; the three stone picra
which now support the superstruc
ture. Work was delayed by hi h wat
er so that it was not until February
of the present year that the laving of
the girdew of the bridge proper was
begun. The first pier on the west
bank is sunk 30 feet below low water
mark and rises 30 feet above ; the second
end pier is 38 fees and third DO feet
below the level of low wa'cr. Thu

narrowness of the river ch.umel is ta
ken advantage of at this point and is
crossed by two opans frotn the Ne

in length. The girdera and beams
rise to n height of nearly fifty feet
above the piers and form a singularly
H htyet strong httico work of steel
resting on the thrdo main stonn piers
of the foundation. Joining thi West

the clear wafer of the Phtto is seen
mingling into the murky currents of

while the buildings of the thriving lit
tle town are well set off by the back
ground of green and brown of the
neighboring hills. The flats ot the
Iowa side lira covered with a heavy
growth of underbrush and towards
the cast the roofaof Pacific Junction
show up clearly and distinctly through
the verdure. " What will Ko the result
of throwing open a ne # channel of intercourse -
tercourso with the cast by means of
the bridge ? Will the C. B. & Q.
trains came into Omaha ? These are
questions asked a hundred times to
day. Ultimately there ia no doubt
that the competition will tell to the
benefit of tlio producer. For the
present there is little prospect of the
Burlington trains running into Oma
ha. Such action would mean the dis
ruption of the In > va pool , which just
now is too profitable to all coi ccrncd
for them to doaire ita dissolution.
Should the Wabaah , however , refuse
to enter into the pool , and a fight cn-
sud for freight nnd passengers , then ,
without doubt , the C. 15. & Q. would
run its trains into our city and force
the other roadsto do the samp. That
this may happen at some future day
thcro is every reason to believe.
