Ohio River with the Eastern Kentucky road and a narrow gauge road is talked of to connect the mining districts of George town and Central City with Golden City and in Besides the lighter cost of construction and the cheap ness with which such a road can be the saving of dead weight alone is very Thus the engine and ten der of the Festming road weighs but ten against forty tons on the broad gauge roads and it is estimated that the proportion of dead weight is but two hun dred and fifty pounds for each passenger carried on the Festining whilst on the broad gauge road it is nearly five hun
