there?" The answer a-me back over the battle

Presbyterlans and Episcopalians there?" and
the answer came back again. "No." Once more
he asked. "Are there any Baptists or Catholics

'Who then are there?"he despairingly asked.
and this time the response floated t "k from
over the battlements. full of living p,Shos and
tender mercy. "Christians." was the reply, and
straiahtway the gates were opened and all was
peace and joy. and love, and unity, And so

Mr. Kennard-Gentlemen of tlie c.nvention. I
am requested by the committee to'mnke a very
few explanations with reference to 1is report.
which has been unanimously adopted. So fa
miliar is the whole country withf tilas project.
which has been debated in Congress and va
rlous conventions in different partslof the land
for the last almost ten years, that He thought
it unnecessary to trespass e at length
upon the time of the conventiln in at.
tempting to enforce the resolution upon this
conventlon. The main considerat ons which
presented themselves to the minds @f the com.
mittee. were: First-Is there an act.u l necessity
for another competing line to conbect the At
lantic with the Pacific? In determinlg wihether
or na that necessity existed we were oblilaged to
consult the present facilities fori.transeborting
frelight and passengers from one ocean to an
other, and in that nlquiry we found. 4rhathas be
come well known hIstory, thatthe mant grinding
monopoly that has ever existed in tints govern
ment is choking the very life otit of commerce
in all that region of the" ,contry de
pending for railroad transportation be
tween the Midssssippi river and 'the Pacific
Ocean. in this Northern Pacfic Rail.
road. IApplause.l We make thli assertion
upon careful inquiry and investigation of facts
and figures. and we have come to the oncluaion
that it is nothing more nor leess than 4n absolute
commercial necessity that another'competing
road should be built. (Applause.l Then comes
the question. how most economict can it be
made? We here were made to liten' to the
claims of the Southern Pacifid httalroad-a
mirnomer. They urged before un.: as they did
before CongresA. that our claim =shquld be
disregarded. Why" Because they' are offer
ing to build their road wlth.ut: charg
ing the government one cent.a I deny their
proposition in lote. It may seenm s( on the face
of th upapers, but a very curs6ry 'review will
show Its utter falsity. The existhnce of the
Union Pactfie Railroad is duo to tbb enormous
subsides glven to it by the governrfent during
the war. and in return to the goverment for its
genorosity what have they dond?, ' hey have
made default in paying their Intdreit. and they
have defied the government to moke them do
what in common honesty they are nompelledto
do. (Apolause.l Now comes !tl.t question
whether by building the road. wblcA they claim
they want to build with their; (wn; money.
they will benefit as large a iunuiber of peo
ple of the United States and to ns great an
extent as If the road was ;b.lt by the
United States government subsidy; You must
remember that the only reason :on-the face of
the earth why the' outhern I'Pacilc Jiallroad
can come into the market and; make this offer
is because they have in their bre.nes' pockets
the money originally taken from ibe treasury
of the United States and the untpid Interest
they are using to fight us off. [Apinaue.]i You
must remember the cheapness wltnt which th ae
road can carry freight as comparedidlth the cost
for which it can be built. If a rallrbad cost
-lo,e.o a mile to build it; ltl is a plain
proposition that one costing sp)o a mile can
carry freltht and passengers one- Balf chea:er
and therebycoater more benefit. Wd had no
dispute in regard to that, and itinsdemb that the
committee has comedo the conclusioil that, so
far as that matter is concerned: iltils the right
of the government to exercise its junctlons
under the constitution. and it hbte been so de
clared by the ablest minds frdm' the time of
Calhoun to the present day. And.aflitmed and
reaffirmed by the Supreme Court of the United
States. until there is no question about it in
view of the familiarity of the :t;edple;wlth this
I have been asked by the committee to ask
your adoption of this report.; I iwill only
add this: That our concluslohs were reached
under as deep conviction that the inealure was a
national measure as that its eidcqjtioh will ben

right to demand, especially oft url Southern

Mr. George, of Texas. and read portions of the
bill now pending tirefre, the United States

seleted by three englnhers of the United States
Army, and two other sutmmnissioners, to be ap
pointet by the Presidnt. t
Mr. George d 'nittid:that this was the bill I
-nown as the Matthews' 'bill. He said that it I
was the bill introduced in the House by Mr.
House of Tennessee.
Mr. Burch reasserted that it was the hill
known as the Matthews' bill. and called on Mr.
George to produce the Matthews' bill. Mr.
Burch then reading from the bill. proceeded to
show that it provided for a terminus en the
Mississippi river south of Memphis. tIf, de
nied that the promoters of thils proposed to
divert trade from the South.
Mr. Hogan, of Missouri. addressed the con
ven'ion at length. He said this thing whl'ch has
been pretented to us heftr to-lday from Texas is
a very familiar kind of an animal to mn. I have
seen it before a long way off from her,; I meoot
it to-day in the lower Misl-·r ipptl I saw it a

shows itself. It in the Union I'aciilc Railroad
fighting competing lines.
I'roeeeding, Mr. IHogan ridiculed the bonevo.
lent intentions of the Unlon and Contral Pa
clili' Railroads. What they wanted, he said.
was to shutt off competition, and if a Southern
road was built they wanted to have the control
of it. so that there could be no competition.
They owed the government $27 X0 ,0i0 of back
interest. and Derhaps this was tt., moniey they
proposo d to put into a Southern IPacific rail
road in order to shut off competition and holt
thetrade across the continent in their grasp.
Mr. Hogan said that he favored subsidies. It
was only using the people's money to build up
the people's interest. He believedl In the gov
ernment rendering material aid whenever
American commerce could be increased or the
interests of the poople fostered and cherished.
Mr. Smith. of Virginia. in an earnest argu
ment favored the report of the committee. He
declared that he did not look on the aid asked
from the government as a subsidy, but as a
loan. to be paid back with Interest. He could
not see but that the advocates of Huntington's
road were advo-ia lag the Interests of the Union
Mr. George again addressed the convention
He pointed out that Tom Scott was president of
the Union Pacific monopoly until turned out in
1871. and that now he was trying to create an
other monopoly in this Texas Paciflc road. He
endeavored to show that the final result would
be that St. Louis would become the eastern ter
minus of the road provided for in the bill
recommended by the report of the committee.
Mr. Mallory stated that Mr. House's bill, of
Tennessee, was the hill now In the Senate. and
that it provided for the eastern terminus on the
Misslsslppi river south of Memphis.
After considerable discussion between Mr.
George. of Texas Mr. Mallory. of Kentucky.
