MEMPHIS DAILY APPEAL THURSDAY, OCTOBER 14, 188G.
THURSDAY, t t OCT. 14. 1886.
We have recalved from the office of

by the United States Senate, a circu

versary of the Constitution of the
pirent Republic the United Statts;
and the "World's Exposition in 1802,"
in honor of the tour hundredth anni
versary of the discovery of America
by Columbus. The events of the
adoption of the Constitution of the
United States and of the discovery of
America are of historic importance of
a chamber that Interests the whole

reached every civilized ration in
the world, and, as everywhere,
produced powerful result upon
the social and political condition

propriate methods of celebrating thete
anniversaries was appointed, conns'-
inifof Senator from Ohio, Mwisiclin-
setts, New Jersey, Connecticut, In
dians, Maryland and Louisiana. The
committee is required to consider the
propriety cf properly celebrating the
anniversaries falling in 188!) and 1892
as interes'iug "not only the citizens of
tliis Republic and of the governments
of the Weotern hemisphere, but they
alto mark occasions tf transcendant
importance in the history of the civil
ied world." Senator Hoar, in mov
ing his resolution, elated that no
doubt, the diplomatic representatives

To the Editori of tha Appeal :
When I was bets years ago the
pr.-j'-ct of building a dnect read from
Memphis to S ,mi was ag tated. That
prrject has lost none of its Impor
tance. In fac, it has been increased
by the buildiDK of the Kansas City
toad. I propose, with your permiE
s;on, to submit a few facts on this sub
ject. This is a subject of deep interest
to the citizens of Memphis and of
Kansas City. The number ot bales of
cotton raised each year ia thecountiee
between Holly Springs and Selma ia
170,000. It is far mere tnan tne
amount laistd in the counties on any
line of railroad now running into
Memphis'. The number of bales of
cotton raiB'd each year between Mem
phis and Vicksburg is 128,000, includ
ing Warren ccuniy. These facts
show the importare of the
road to Se'me. Where th!s
ctton ieroi ed theie i va?t demand
fnr mnat and breadstuff's. These can
and will be supplied from Karsas
City and Memphis.
MoFtrf these 170,000 ba'es now go
tj M'bile and New O.leanB, but when
this Selma road is boilt the greater
portion of that cotton will come to
Mnmnhis Tnere are on the line of
thatoad several important town,Oko-
lon, ACerdenn ano ioiuiuiiuh, iuimj ,
and Pickensville, Eutaw, Greensbor
ough. Marion and Srlma. all of which
do a largn trade, none of which now
comes to Memphis, and a greater part
cf which will come here when this
road ia finished. Ho road wnicn is
now in existence, or which can be
built, will b ing more trade to Mem
phis, and through Memphis to Kansas
City,' than this Selma road. It can be
very cheaply built, for there are co
heavy grades on the line.
One of the main arguments made
years ago in favor of the Selma road
was that it would inevitably lead to
tbe building of the Memphis and
Kansas City road.
Thn Kansas Citv rosd has been
built, and it makes the Selma road a
matter ot necessity. It is the nearest
and bsBt line t) Monteorjerv. Ala,
and also to Eufala. I, should be
under the control of tho Kansai City
road, all the way to Montgmery.
This road and the Nashville, Memphis
and Texas road will .make a perfect
system for Memphis. tyf j
