Virginia Roads to Merge

Norfolk, Va., April 22 -- The stockholders of the Deepwater
Railway, of which
Henry H. Rogers is the principal owner, are expected to vote today in favor of
the proposal to merge the road with the Tidewater Railway. The Deepwater is
under construction from Deepwater, W. Va., to Glen Lyn, near the Virginia line,
a distance of 112 miles. The two roads will form a continuous line from
Deepwater to Norfolk, a total distance of 443 miles, and it is
expected the work
of construction will be completed by next spring. The Virginia
Railway, which is
to take over the two companies, has an authorized capital of $35,000,000.
