OF COTTON BELT
Through Trains Should be Able
to Reach Stephenville by
The Hamilton Rustler of May
12, contains the following, which
completely refutes a report pub-
lished in a Temple paper to the
effect that the Cotton Belt would
not extend from Gatesville.
According to a recent letter
from Cotton Belt headquarters
which letter the writer has seen,
the contract has been let, con-
struction, bridge work and all,
for the extension of the Cotton
Belt from Gatesville, the present
western terminus to Hamilton,
the eastern terminus of the Cot-
ton Belt’s late acquisition, the
Stephenville, North and South
Texas railway, the gap between
Gatesville and Hamilton being
some 32 miles in length.
‘Contract already let, material
bought and moving, we have set
about to build this piece of road
and we couldn’t back out now, if
we wanted to,” states the letter.
‘The general contractors, a
large Chicago construction con-
cern, have promised to complete
the road in four months from
date,or ahont September 15, how
ever, they are of the opinion that
they can have it ready for opera-
tion in less time than that.”
W. P. McCoy, J. H. Kibeck
and G. J. Grammett, sub-con-
tractors, who hew* the first 17
miles out of town are here look-
ing over the ground. They stat-
ed yesterday to a representative
of the Rustler that they will as-
semble 130 teams at Hamilton, just
soon as the iron horse can bring
them here from their last con-
tract, and these teams are already
in transit and work will begin
immediately upon their arrival.
These contractors came over
from Gatesville following the line
of the Cotton Belt permanent
•survey which they say has pro-
gressed two thirds of the way,
paralleling the old survey of ten
years ago, and passing south
it but a few hundred yards.
At Gatesville, they state, tfy
is much activity in Cotton
circles. Tons of construction anc
bridge material is constantly com-
ing in, while contractors and
teams are rapidly assembling pre-
paratory to beginning work imme-
diately upon a moment’s notice.
The O.K. wagon yard has add-
ed a full line of feedstuffs and
will in future do a retail feed
business and will appreciate your
trade;we carry shelled corn,shell-
ed oats, sheaf oats, bran, chops,
hay, in fact all feedstuffs. First
class attention will continue to
be given all guests of the yard
and you are invited to stop there.
Plenty of good water and any
feed you want. B.G.Hall. 34-4t
