Virginian to Resume Work

The Virginian railway is preparing to resume work on the road near
Princeton, and will shortly put a force of men at work laying track between
Ingleside and Oakvale. Other track laying will be pushed to completion. An
engineer in the employ of the railroad, said Saturday that the company is
commencing to string bridges across Black Lick and at other points. This
work will give employment to a large number of men. Major Page said some
time ago that his company expected to have trains in operation by the first
of May. While the company will not be able to complete the road by that
time, they will be able to get trains running during the coming summer.
