The citizens of Susanville and vicinity have awakened to the fact that a railroad is needed in this valley, and all are now using every effort to have it extended from the Junction.

It is stated that Moran Bros of New York, are not railroad men, and got possession of it through loans. The road to the Junction cannot pay back interest on the investment and to make it pay it must be extended.

It has been suggested that subscriptions be taken and a man, thoroughly posted as to the county and wants of the people, be sent to New York to represent matters to Moran Bros, and there is little doubt, if the proper showing is made that the load will be extended at once. Mr. E. V. Spencer is recommended as the proper person to represent us and a subscription paper is now in circulation which bears the signature of our leading citizens, with amounts aggregating $230.

About $500 is needed for the trip, and the list will be circulated through the entire valley during the next week, and there is no doubt but the required amount will be raised. Every property holder should use his influence to get this road extended, as it will be a direct personal benefit to all.

Our country is adapted to the raising of almost anything, and that which finds the readiest sale is what should be produced. We have as fine timber as can be found, and when it comes to our fruit, it cannot be beaten in the world. It will make our farmers more independent, our businesses men in better position to sell goods at a higher rate and in fact benefit all. We hope all will assist and let us make an effort toward having the road extended t this place.
