RAILROAD SftMS ACtRTAINTY So far as newspaper reports are con cerned, it is rather unfortunate that as yet the inside facts. s>. far a> ob tainable, are not ready for publication, and the general public must take on faith, to a great degree, the statement that there is an almost certainty that surveyors will be at work OU the line from the Southern Pacific to Calexico within a week or two. and that graders will be set to work within about thirty days, with a prospect that the road will be completed before the heat of summer sets in. There is no doubt that before the end of March there will be a definite announcement of the policy to be fol lowed and the order in which the work is to be done. Any amount of room exists for speculation regarding the railroad combinations which are being formed and which may have their bearing on Imperial. One of these rumors is to the effect that Senator Clark of the Salt Lake road is in alliance with George Gould, and that the latter is the powe...
