V. BRUCH, dtd Township Collector. New Line Across Missouri. (From the Chicago Tribune.) The Central Missouri railway company, which has recently been attracting public attention, is destined to pluy m important part in Western railroading as well as in through travel from the seaboard to Kansas City. The line runs from a point opposite Alton on the Mississippi river to Kansas Cny, the distance being nevly 300 miles, with M branch line to Hannibal 96 miles lone. Men who are known as being identified with the Vanderbilt system of roads have been mentioned in connection with this enterprise, it being understood tbtit ih'is »ystem was anxiaus to not to Kun- dm City independent of the Gould ines, hut so quietly have tho negotiations been carried on that u • matter has not become prominent until now. The importance of this plan can be seen when it is stated that the Central Missouri road controls a charter for a bridge across the Mississippi at Alton, and through Its purchase of the Kansas City Short Line, aUo controls a rhurittr for a bridge over the Missouri it St. Charles. Alton is but twtmiy miles north of St. Louis. At East Si, Louis some nine roads center, Indepen- uent of thu Wabasb, where ihoy have to pay the heavy terminal charges of the Undge Company, which have served as a burden, which these roads can be rttllevtid of by moans of the new bridge at Alton, which cun bo built for far Jess cost than the St. Louis bridge, and by means of which they can go direct to Kansas City. The St. Louis and Chioitgo road now in operation botweun St.Louis and Spring- Quid,via Litchliold, and which is extending Its lino to feona, forms an important link in the chain, while the completed Chicago, ttanta Fe and CalU forma, lately acquired by the Atohison, Topeka aud Santit Fo Co., connects at Johut with the Michigan Central. This system alone frome Uhlcasjo to Alton lt> uu Important one without taking into consideration the other ronds that havn heretofore suffered under the heavy ohnrgesof tho brid^v' company itt St. Louis, aud gives tho Central Misiourl a prominence in rmlroudlug which must attract the attention of all persons interested In Western transportation mai- Urt.

My report stated that wn had enjoyed an increase in our herd of 120 per 'cent, aud that was tho case. I don't know that any of our men stole any calve* from our neighbors. I don't know that our cows hod more than one calf apiece, but somehow we found on our roundup that wo had 120 per cent increase. This is what broke us up. CatMomen ore used to 80 and 90, and in raits cases 100 per cent increase, but they could not stand 120. The cattle association in that district held a mooting and passed resolutions that it was impossible for any herd to increase at such a rapid rate, and, calling upon tho Delegate to Congress from Ut«h to investigate tho ease, wound up by giving me tlutw days' time to get out of the Territory.
