Jackson

AIR LINE RAILROAD. The intention of those interested in the organization of this road was to secure another through route from Chicago by the Grand Trunk at Ridgeway, or the St. Clair branch of the Great Western of Canada, and with that in view right of way was procured and grading done east of Jackson; but the road from Jackson to Niles was leased to the Michigan Central company, and finished between those points in February, 1871, and is now operated by the Central company. The city voted to this-company a loan of $46,500, and Jackson county voted a loan of $150,000, but the decision of the supreme court prevented the payment of either of these sums. A large proportion of the stock was subscribed by the citizens of Jackson. The officers of the road are Jerome B. Eaton, president; E. Bancker, secretary; and Moses A. McNaughton, treasurer all of Jackson.
