The truth of the above is strik

The business of the road will be
larger, perhaps, during its con-
struction than after its completion,
as all the materials necessary to
the building of the unfinished por-
tions will have to be transported I

over those sections oi tne line ai-
ready laid and equipped, and these
alone will yield an immense rove-
nue. After its completion the
traffic will consist of government
supplies, mails, females and other
military stores; of the local carry-
in"- trade of the present populous

Pole; of the bulk of the business
now done by the steamers plying
on the waters of the Suez Canal,
New North Sea, Dismal Swamp,
Dutch Gap. and other streams
adiacent and tributary to the road,
and of the entire trade of the Pie-
gan Indians, consisting chiefly of
bear's oil, hare's oil, and other

rroctor Knott, who was elected
governor ot Kentucky on use Olli
of this month, immortalized him-1
opposing the road and humorously
jibing1 the pretensions of Duluth.
Duluth flourishes, however, and
has sent word to the newly elected
governor of the sour-mash region
that if he will come to that "zen
ith cit3' of the unsaltcd seas," he
can be elected mayor of that muni-

ol xeprtibeuiaii ca,
twelve years ago, Proctor Knott
in the course oi his remarks said
that after an arduous search he
had discovered Duluth upon the
map. He went on to say:
If gentlemen will examine it,thev
will not find Duluth in the center
of the map, but represented in the
center oi" a series of concentric
circles one hundred miles apart,
and some of them as much as four
thousand miles in diameter, em
bracing alike in their tremendous
sween the fragrant savannas of the
sunlit South, and the eternal soli
tudes of snow that mantle the ice
bound North. How these circles
were produced is, perhaps, one of
those primordial mysteries that the

as to venture away into those aw

posed to be. that it is so exactly m

that the skv comes down at pre
