The line proposed to be abandoned is approximately 1g2 Miles Long from Brazil to the Indi Jana Illinois line of Morocco and from Percy Junction to Lacrosse. The hearing is being conducted a the social room of the m. E. Church in Attica and is attracting a great Many people. The taking of evidence probably will con ume the entire week. decision will be rendered by the commission immediately upon the conclusion of the a rial yet the personal interest shown by so Many interested persons along the line will no doubt have its weight in the Case. While it is not fair to the rail Road company to ask them to operate this line at a loss it is claimed by the defense that this situation is due to the fact that the company diverted its profitable traffic to the main line of the c. Amp e. I. And used the Coal Branch largely to transport their empty cars. Whether a Case can be made on this Pooh remains for the trial to set Forth.

It is also claimed by some that the company is making this move to abandon the Road to secure a Bonus from citizens along the Road who would be heavy losers by its abandonment. The Case has Many interesting features to it and no doubt some Justice on both sides. It is being closely followed by Many interested people and the decision of the Public service commission will be awaited with anxious expectations. It is to be hoped that an Early decision will be rendered so the suspense will not be so Long. Agricultural films will be show Gusher Gas Well at Perrysville indl4na.
