Tho following concerning tho
4.. LltJ "
'srs taken from yesterday's Char
. lotte Observer: ; '
The new railroad which the
Southern has been ; building from
; Iooresville to Mocksville is at
iast practically f finished. The
track in places is not properly
surfaced yet, but to all intents and
purposes, the road is hnished.
Trains cannot be operated until
the track is surfaced, but that will
have been completed probably
within t.hft course of a week. The
ofl5cers of the road intended mak
Jno- a tour of inspection ovep the
line to-day, but will not because
the track is not quite ready. They
will likely christen the rails next
week. The schedule of rates that
Ktnf'n rin tho new road was
VY 111 ,4. ' v-- y r.
received here yesterday. They
will be effective October 1st. The
fare from here to-Winston will be
00. and from Mooresville to
Mocksville, $1 first-class, and S5
r, t fiP.pnnd-class. There are live
stations between the .two M's
Mooresville and Mocksville
fnnrnsv illfi Junction. Barber's
Junction, Mt. Ulla, Schley and
nne other. It is the opinion o
railroad men that a mixed train
will be run between Winston and
Mooresville for the present. Iis
nrnhiiblo that this new road nky
become the main line between
w,ro nnil Winston, and that the
Atlantic, Tennessee Qhi(? from
Mooresville on to Taylorsville wil
be a branch. Two crews of train
men will find employment on the
roatl. It opens up a fine country
through Iredell, Rowan and Davie
a countrr of cotton and tobacco
v ' of fruit and grain; a country well
settled by a particularly intelli
gent abd thrifty tropic. The lo
cal business of the line, both pas
senger and freight,- will be a mat
ter of consequence.
