WABASfl CHANGES Of Magnitude Said to be Under Consideration, With a View to the Ultimate Surrender of. tne Eel River Soad— Eailroafl Sews. The sale of the Ohio end of the Wabaeh main line under the Compton judgment of 0510,000 ia again spoken of, and the St. Louis Glooe- Democrat speaks as though a sale might possibly be suffered and the line from Toledo to Montpeller built, the survey of which was noted in our columns yesterday. But with it all the road officials do not say much. Concerning this matter the Toledo Bee of last Saturday said: "According to a special telegram surveyors have started from Montepelier, O., on a proposed new line of railroad from that city to Toledo. It is further announced that the Wabash isj behind the scheme, which Js to openj up a new Toledo-Chicago line, j Whether this movement is simply aj bluff for the benefit of the Comcton} claimants, or whether the Wabash really means to open up a new line between Toledo, Ohio, and OMJ- cago, and then surrender its tracks between Toledo and the Indiana state line to the Com piton claimants cannot be determined at this time. The fact that tbe surveyors are at work, coupled wlDh the further fact that the Wabash a planning to build a fine new passenger station and increase its yard facilities at Montpelier, seems to have considerable significance. j Is is satd also that a party of surveyors will begin surveying a line from Butler to Fort Wayne, a distance of about thirty miles, which would indicate that the Wabash has some idea of surrendering the old Eel River tracks.
