In response to an invitation, Messrs.
W. J. Cbaee. W.B. Morw. I. N. Snow-
an. W. P. Dunnvant. N. M. Jones. R.
B. Snowden, 6. H. Dunscombe, H. M.
Doak. Oeome Arnold. Peter Mclntyre
and many others met in the parlors of
tbe Peabody Hotel at 4 o clock yettsr
Cel. H. M. Doak was unanimously
chosen chairman, and eta'ed the ob
ject to be the consideration of the line
ot railway mown aa me jnempnia,
Kansas and Western railroad, to be
extended from Memphis through the
6 ates of Arkansas, Missouri and
Mr. Kirby then explained the road,
andasked if the enterprise met with
the approval of tbe cit'zena ot Mem
nhie. and that a committee of citiajna
be appointed to solicit s'lbscriptiona to
tbe amount of tl 00,00 J, 5 per cent, of
which to be naid Jane 1. iSSu. and 10
per cent upon the laying of ten miles
of track from Memphip, and 10 per
cent, for each subBcquunt ten muea
nntil subscription ia paid in f 'ill.
Hon. W. K. Moore being c lied upon
to express his views npou the matter,
stated that, so far as be and his hrm
were concerned, they got no benefit
from the vast region ol productive
country sou through winch it was
proposed to extend this line of the
toad : and he believed his competitors
reaped no benefit from i under the re
cent condition of afTairn Ue was in
favor of every railroad coming to
Memphis that would ba a benfitto it.
The territory reached by the Memphis,
Kansas and Weetern railroad Is nn
troJden, commercial! v, so far as Mem
phis is concerned. It would furnish
the food supplies in the way of grain,
etc., f jr this section of country for all
time to come u it couiu oniy De
reached. This can be done by means
of this road.
Mr. I. N. Snowden, in a few well
chesen remarks, favored the enter-
ttrise. and tta'.ed that about tbe only
communication with the interior waa
by means of wagone, wh ch was very
expensive ana nnsaiisiaciory.
Mr. N. M. Jones heartily indorsed
tbe views of Mr. Snowden.
Hon. W. K. Moore then stated that
he bdieved ho bad more faith in
Memphis than most any one else, and
that it was destined to become a great
commercial center, and , that such
means of traffic and communication
were badly needed, such as proposed
bv Mr. Kirby. He didn't think the
- . A- . .. ll Jl
people couio. anora nor. to aiiow rail
roads to De Dunt to ftiempniB tney
must bring them here she must
brig railroads from this northwestern
country because it furnishes subsis
tence for all this section of country in
Mr. W. J. Chase favored the imme
diate construction of the proposed
read, and explained that at present
the grain merchants ol Memphis were
excluded from buying products di
rectly from the producers, but had to
receive them from Kansas City or
from points north. Tbis road would
enable the farmers of a great and pro
ilut Hve region t o coneiga directly t)
Mr. George Arnold was in (avor of
all railroads coming into Memphis
that would bene8t it, and believed
that tbis was one of the moat impor
tant roads over proposed, and was
vital ti the in'erests of Memphis.
Mr. N. M. Jones was decidedly in
favcroftbe proposed line being con
structed. Col. W. P. Dunavant eaiu that al
though be was more a builder of rail
roads than a talker, yet he thought
this line was ot great importance to
tbe interests of Memphis, and of
course should be built.
CoL B. B. 8nowden, in some elo
quent remarks advocating the pro
posed line, moved that a committee of
tivo Iib annointed bv the chairman to
make a thorough investigation of the
proposed line, and after such inveeti
gation to obtain subscriptions from
the Deonle of Memphis upon the
iMma nrvonnted bv Mr. Kirby ; and
that said committee be also empowered
tn rail nnhliri meetine of the busi
ness men of Memphis for the purpose
of furthering the enterprise.
Mr. S. H. Dunscombe seconded the
motion. The motion wai carried
unanimously, and the cha'rman Btated
that be would announce tbe commit
Thereupon the meeting was ad-jou-ntd.
C'liangfS of the most radical cluirac-
t-r are going on in tue Memphis
rtarh. and old river men who have
been watching the work of the great
water engine predict the niot anion
iahing results. Of the rapid cutting
away of the point at Ilopeiit-ld most
people are aware, but ita extent is not
generally known. I'ntil the water
rose over the bank cnunas as uig as
box cars could be seen tumbling in
continuously day and night. The
river is still cutting, having sliced oil'
about 500 yards in as many months,
and lias eaten away aliout 2.V
yards from the north end
of the sand bar; which deflects
the current to this side, at a point al
most immediately in front ol the tus-
toin-bouae. The old channel oi me
river on the west side of President s
Island ia now dead water and when
the river falls the incline at west
Memphis will be entirelv useless to
the Kansas City road. 1 he Memphis
and Little Kock has lately built one
immediately opposite the Custi un
bolts, which cannot be lined nt a
lower staire of water than thirty-two
feet. The transfer bout, to reach it, i
has to drop down below the end of the
sund-bur rnd etcam up on the :
other side. The current is sailing
by at the rate of ten miles
an hour, and after caroming on Cua-tora-Ilouxe
bluir strikes the head of
President's Island with terrible force.
It has taken awav a large portion of it
and cut through to lagoon which
runs along near the east bank of the
inland. Through this a swift channel
now HowHt. . After striking th head of
the island the currunt crosses the river
again to a point above the mouth of
Nonconnah crock, which runs in at
such an angle as to form point. One
field about 300 yards wide has been
carr'ed away already, and it is
likely the entire point will
go very soon, carrving the
Iron bridge on the Cow Inland road,
the only one in tho county, away with
it. A number of bites have already
been taken out of the west baiik of the
creek just, below the bridge, and it is
believed that an under current now
(lows through from the Mississippi into
Nonconnah at that point

The Water Committee met yester
day, with Chairman Hampton presid
ing, anil Messrs. Smith. Gavin, Lowen
stein, Ureene, Mitchell, Hein, Over
ton anil Hill present; alfo Dr. Tl orn
ton and Maj. Meriwether. President
lladden was absent, milking prepara
tions fur his departure for Hiloxi at 0
o'clock. Judge Smith's resolution, in
troduced at the previous meeting,
came up. It was as follows:
" ftanwf, That in the opinion of
this committee it is impracticable to
obtain water from the Mississippi
river above the city."
The same ground as that covered
bv the discussion at former meetings
was gone over. (ten. Greene insisted
the tMttt engineers in the I'nited
States bad decided that w ater could
not be obtained from the Mississippi
without an outlav incompatible with
the capacity of Memphis, nml that a
plan which might be practicable to
day miirht be rendered valueless to
morrow by a sudden change in the I
mighty current. At best, be thought
that the result would be uncertain, ami
that Memphis could not afford to take
any chances. IVsides, it was out of the
power of ti c city to make an appro
priation of a sutlicient amount to em
ploy engineer to make a new survey.
Anil, as a matter of fact, Wolf river
water was the purer and better, after
all-asgtMxl as any in the I' 11 ted
States iftaken from the point proposed
by him, which waa above the reach
of back water from tbe Mississipp'.
Mr. Hill said, in his opinion, Wolf
river water was tmiieaunv, ann tnai
of the Mississippi much the best The
committee should make an effort to
get a permanent supply from the
latter stream, and in the event of fail
ure might then look elsewliTC. lie
had a letter in bis pocket, he said,
from Pearson, who hail been em
ployed to extend the Kansas City
works at a cost 01 fsw.ouu. inai
gentleman proposed to get water from
the Mississippi for $150,000. Great
Changes had taken place since Mr.
Hermsny ami mt. t. iieeseoorougn
made their surveys. The river was
now .within 800 feet of the bluffs four
miles to the north, bluffs as high aa
those of tiie citv. The great difficulty
with those gentlemen before was the
distance of the river from the high
Mr. Overton took the broad ground
that everv plan which looked at all
feasible Bhould bo fully investigated.
He agreed with Gen. Greene that
Wolf river above Raleigh was purer
than the Mississippi even if it could
lie obtained, but the majority of the
people took fright at tile bare men
tion of more Wolf water, and for the
sake of making the work of the com
mittee popular, and bringing public
sympathy and interest to it support,
if for nothing else, the futility of all
other plans if, indeed, they wero
futile should first be thoroughly
shown. As for the points made by
Gen. Greene, with whose report he
agreed, he wanted to say, once for all,
Hint he had taken no Btock in any
water company and would not while
a member of the committee, believ
ing that the city should own and
operate its water-works.
.Indue Smith said if Mr. Overton
was satisfied of the impracticability of
tho Mississirini river plan, it seeinod
to him he ouglit to vote it down and
rleur awav a useless ami serious ob
struction to the work of thq ' commit
Did. Mit. hell and Thornton agreed
that Wolf river above the city would
furnish purer water than the Missis
sippi. Judge Smith's resolution was
finally put to a vote and carried,
Messrs. Hill, Overton, Hein and Gavin
having their votes recorded against it,
Messrs. Smith, Lowenstein, Greene,
Mitchell and Hampton voting in favor
The following resolution introduced
by (ien. Greene was then unanimously
It is the sense of the committee that
in view of the increasing population
of tho city the construction of a system
of permanent water-works should be
undertaken and carried out as soon as
the necessary legislation can bo se
cured by the Taxing District; and
that, considering the paramount ne
cessity for the preservation of the pub
lic health, the security anil future
enlargeme t of the structures ami the
economy in the management, the
