It is announced that the matter is now engaging the attention of Mr. W. P. Hinton, the recently .appointed general passenger agent of the sys- tem. The idea'of the officials is. to get as much of land peopled as possible forthwith, in order to fur- nish local traffic. Mr. Hinton is now gathering the material for a colonization campaign which it is hoped will result in sev- eral thousands of settlers establishing themselves in these valleys before the road is built. The information ga- thered regarding the- productiveness of these.valleys will be distributed in quarters where it will be of sernco in influencing people of the right kind to settle there.
