ONLY TEN CARS DAILY
But Winding Gulf Coal Shipments Will Soon be Much Larger
The Virginian Railway, according to some trade papers, is shipping thousands of tons of coal from the Winding Gulf daily, but information received in this city yesterday brings the total down to ten cars daily. It is expected, however, that in the course of a month the road will be carrying twenty-five cars a day from the Winding Gulf. There are no coke ovens on the Gulf so all the shipments are of coal. The Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad [sic] has graded within seven and one-half miles of Mullens and it is reported that the road is going to run into Mullens, but nothing definite can be learned. Mullen, although small, expects to be a prosperous town some of these days.
