under the management of the Rock Inland.
While it has been stated that this line was
not included in the purchase of the Choctaw
by"the Rock island is srems probable that
this was only because ti* .ir.e through tnis
county is incomplete, d that as soon as it
is finished and ready for operation it will be
turned over to the Rock ^Is an<^. This line,
with the Ft. Smith & Western. It would
not seem to be good policy to build both
roads so close together, but as long as the
"Choctaw was an independent line a spirit ot
rivairy might lead to the building of both
roads. As staled last week, it does not
s em that the Choctaw ^ill be bi^ilt east of
the Santa Fe survey. It is now said that
the Ft. Smith will be built to the point
where the Chocta'w leaves of?, and that the'
two roads wi l in reality be but one, and will
be operated by the Rock Island and will co-
operate, with the Santa Fe.
