MORE RAILROAD NEWS.
The following taken from the l’onca
City Courier of last week throws a little
more light on the much talked of and
widely advertised extension of the Bil-
lings branch of the Rock Island to
somewhere, no one knows where now,
but everybody hopes somewhere at
least. This is what was learned at a
meeting of the Chamber oi Commerce
of that city Wednesday night, April 11.

to emend from that point to a connec-

proposition to submit to Ponca City,
winch, in effect, was that the Billings
branch would oe extended to connect
with the main line at this point, if our
citizens comply with certain stipula-
tions. As far as could be learned from
the gentleman, the company stipulates
that Ponca City shall give to the com-
pany about 200 acres of ground on
which to construct shops and other
neceBsary buildings. It is believed that
in the event of these plans being car-
ried out the Santa Fe company will re-
move the division headquarters from
Arkansas City to this place. A fact
that lends color to this belief is tnat
Ponca City is the logical place for the
offices, being located exactly half way
