WiiKRBAs, Tho Kansas City and
Memphis Railroad and lir'dge Com

pose of eonstruc'ing and operating a
liriilpe aero a the Mississippi river at
Memphis, hits nw a hill pending ia
Congress granting it the necessary
authority iu that behalf; and whereas,
said eomp'iiy is organized and con
trollodinthe inte-estof the Kan'as
City, Springfleld and Memphis and
the Kansas tMty, Memphis and l!ir
mingham ltnilroad Comtanies and
other railroads; it is therefore
Jitittlrtd, Tbat it is the sense of this
meeting, composed of tho Cot on and
Merchants' Exchanges and citizens of
Memphis, that a bridge at Memph s
is a irrea'. and important commercial
necessity to the trade and commerce
I tho MiHSiBsippl Valley and the
South, and will he of immeasurable
value in establishing the commercial
supremacy of Memphis as a great dis
tributing snd railroad center.

Mr, W. R. Moo-e said there was
an ther company rapteaented which
ought to be heird from in a spirit cf
Mi i. McFar'and ra d be acraed that
it a bridge weto to ho built it ought tj
be built spceiily. "Sme months
ago," be said "Mr. A. P. Holler, repre
senting men of Lre cipittl, came
here for the purpose ol arwnutog to
build a blidue. They made the prop
er survey and rttr:e I the movement.
in March, Mat. Mcrar and continued,
"we obttiued a charier, but bund it
ould be nerowaiy to have an act ot
Con gt ess. We also discovered tlia'.
others had previously obtaiced a
charter. An etlort was made by Mr.
Boiler to get that charter, thinking t j
save time. Since that time the Kan
sas City, 8pringQeld ami Memphis
Company have come to ths front as a
biidge builder. The important point
f r its Io consider is to whom tbe priv
ilege of bu Id ng a bridge should be
granted; whether we sha'l g-ant it to
a combination for the benetit cf one
or two lailroads, or to in organization
which will treat all railroads alike.
So far as Congraea is concerned, it liu
jurisdiction so Lr as lipaiinn rights
go, and no further. The bilCgs must
be built in the Southern pirt of the
city, and the access to it is over a very
narrow isthmus. This is one argument
stalest giving it to any one road. All
that our company aeki is tbat ycu ra
ter tne matter as to lnrn the right
shall be given to our Congressmen.
Don't handicap our representative,
now and tie us down to the mercy of
one company. Io this eptrit I offer
tho following resolution in lieu of that
effHri d by Mr. Schooltlald :
Whkkkas, The growing trao of
Memphis imperatively demar.ds the
builuing ol a bridge atrossthe Misii,
sippi r.ver at thia point, and thu its
construction should bs begun at tie
eariieet piacttc! moment and core
pleted as Bpeedily as possible; and,
whra, it is important that such
bridge should not bo owned by any
corporation whote interest it may be
to digoriuiina o in fav.ir of any one or
more roaos, nut by tbe corporat on
ottering the best Kuarnnt'ei of inv
parta'ity and bist management for
the general inteietts of Memphis;
and, wheteas, eeveial rival companies
ra now epnlying to the Congress of
the unitsd States for charters for such
bridge; theiefore be it
litntlitd, That our lv'preeiitativps in
C'ougioiS acfemh'ej, be, and aie

hi. (I iiiiaranlets upon the two import
ant loints suggested in the fi-et and
second preambles to thei e iciolutions,
tiwit: Spettly completion of the
bridge aid impartial management
Mr. Hill moved to lay Mr. MrF'r
land's resolution on the tble. Mr.
Crawford seconded tbe mo ion.
The mot on was put and lost.
Before the motion to adopt was pnt,
Mr. Harry Hill loik ti:e tiwr acd said
be was satiefid tbere was never a
more important meeting haa tbe
present, except that tela to instiust
members cf tbe LiiUture regarding
ih atolishmoirt o: tbe old chart r.
"The dream of Mempbiaos for many
years," be eaid, "cas been to ace a

is shout to be rea ired at last. The
movement just made is to tbrct le tbe
capiuliet who are about to build our

We have an opportunity to instruct

ui take a eortiinty instead of a specu

charges on a bridge over the river be

fir the meeting to reniambr one of
tbe argum nts made by Mr. 1 1 all. tha'.

Secretary ol War, "We should decide
in favor of a comraoy which is naly

future. Let us tea what is behind the
