The Black Mountain Road a Boon

Bristol, Va., Dec. 16 - Special - The Black Mountain railway, which
is an extension of the Virginia and Southwestern Railway from
Appalachia to St. Charles, in Lee county, Va., is now being used to
bring the Lee county coals to market. Regular coal trains have just
been put in operation on this new piece of road, and coal is being
hauled from the Lee county fields to Bristol by a direct route.
