JACKSON RAILROADS. The Jackson, Lansing and Saginaw Railroad, the Fort Wayne, Jackson and Saginaw Railroad, the Grand River Valley Railroad, and the Michigan Air Line Railroad may well be called " Jackson railroads," as they were all projected by the citizens of Jackson, and built by their energy, enterprise and capital. They were all aided by subscriptions of stock or subsidies made by the city of Jackson, in conformity in every case with the will of a majority of the electors of the city, as expressed at special elections held for that purpose, and it is probable that in every instance this timely aid rendered by the city secured the building of each of the roads. The business men of Jackson also subscribed largely to the capital stock of these roads, and to them and the electors at large then is the city most indebted for these important lines of trade and travel which have proved so beneficial to its interests, and have added so largely to its wealth, its importance and its general standing.
