HASTINGS. Neb.. Feb. 7. (Special. In
formation comes to Hastings from a relia
ble source that lbs propoaed short line
to connect the St. Joseph St Grand Island
railroa-i from this city with the Union
Pacific at some point northwest of Hast
ings will be built this year.
It la said that the building of this line
will be a part of the program for tho
general Improvement of tbe St. Joseph 4c
Grand Island system. ' Tbe Marysvllle cut
off, from Topeka to Marysvllle, Kan., la
rapidly nearlng completion and this, with
tbe abort line from here to tbe Union Pa
cific at or near Kearney, will reduce the
mileage on shipments between the north
west and the south and southeast about
1U miles. Tbe Marysvllle line la a part
of tbe Harrtman system, which also In
cludes the St. Joseph Grand Island.
Last summer a party of surveyors
mapped out a route from bere to Gibbon,
the second station east of Kearney on the
Union PaclBe. A .line along that route
will reduce the mileage to the northwest
about twenty-five miles. The present route
of tbe St. Joseph and Grand Island extends
directly north from Hastings to Grand
Island, if the new line Is built the present
route to Grand Island will not. of course,
be abandoned.
The St. Joseph 4c Grand Island officials
have announced the formulation of plans
for Improvements which will cost about
tUto.OOO. Tbe road wlU be entirely re
constructed from Marysvllle to- Grand
Island. Tbe roadbed will be rock ballasted,
with rock from tbe road's quarries at
Marysvllle. The engineers . estimates also
rail for the use of between fcX.OOO and
' 000,000 cubic feet of earth In building up
tbe right-of-way.
It is likely that a new, station will be
built In this city. The location will alao

"I wish a law might be enacted that
would enable us to put all railways out

"We are not In it from choice." replied
Mr. Crosby. 'and we would welcome a
chance to get out-
"This hearing has revealed a hopeless

"Explain to me or anyone who is neither
