The contract for the grading of the
Hastings-Gibbon cut-off of the Union
Pacific has been let to Kllpatrick Broth
ers & Collins of Omaha and Beatrice and
will be begun as soon as the teams can
be assembled, which will be inside of ten
days. The distance between the two
points Is thirty miles fcnd It Is expected
that most of the grade will be com
pleted Inside of ninety days,, as the
country is level with the exception of a
hog back a few miles south of the Platte
river. ; . ,-t ' ' ' ,
Work on the bridge ytlll be commenced
as soon as the material can be gotten on
the ground, which will be Inside of three
weeks, in order to have tjie bridge fin
ished by the time that the grading Is
completed, it Is likely that an electric
light plant will be located at the river
and work carried on night and day.
Another Cnt-Ofl Proposed.
In connection with the building of the
Hastings-Gibbon cut-off comes the re
port that the Union Pacific will build Us
cut-off between Fort Morgan and Denver
this fall, This will shorten the distance
between Omaha and Denver something
like fifty miles.
At present the Union Pacific line Into
Denver runs from Julesburg to LaSalle,
where It strikes the line from Cheyenne
and then In, taking something of a round
about course. With the new cut-off it
will be almost an air line from Fort
Morgan to Denver. The line was sur
veyed several years ago and would have
been built two years ago had the finan
cial condition of the country been favor
able. . The grading will probably be let to
Kllpatrick Brothers & Collins.
