Decision of the Board, on petition of the Kennebec Central

Railroad Company, for approval of location of their railroad from Randolph to Togus. Decision September 27 1889.

STATE OF MAINE. The Kennebec Central Railroad, a corporation organized and established under the provisions of law, having, its ippears, complied with all the provisions of law as to organization, and having made a survey of the route of its proposed road, now presents its petition for approval of location.

At a hearing on said petition which was held at Gardiner, on the twentieth day of September, A. D. 1889, it appeared that notice on said petition had been given as ordered, and from the evidence presented by the petitioners, and from a personal examination of the proposed route made by the Board, on said day, it also appeared that a very feasible route for a railroad, had been selected, starting from the Government wharf so called, in the village of Randolph ; thence running northwesterly, through said town and the town of Chelsea, to the National Home for soldiers, situated in said town of Chelsea, a distance of about five miles.

It further appeared that nearly all the heavy supplies for said Home, such as coal, beef, etc., are now carted from the point mentioned in Randolph to said Home; that by reason of such teaming, the bighways of said towns are, at certain seasons of the year, much cut up and almost impassable. Said town being thereby subjected to a burden of taxation in keeping said highways in repair ; that the yearly tonnage of coal and other freight, so transported, now amounts to more than four thousand, and is constantly increasing in amount. From these recited facts, and many others which were given in evidence, which we deem unnecessary to mention, and from our knowledge of the great amount of travel to and from said Home, we are convinced that public convenience and exigencies require the construction of a railroad to and from the points above mentioned, and we, therefore, hereby approve the location of same, as appears by map and plan of route submitted and herewith approved.

By the Board.

E. C. FARRINGTON, Clerk.
