said the reporter, ' something d finite
and atitbori'.ative concerning the im
provements coctemplatf d by the
Memphis Storcga and Cotton Frees
'The Comprets Company, replied
Col. Montfiomery, "real zae that there
ia a probability of Memphis be
coming within the s?it five
years a market ftr the Sale
and purchase 1 1 cotton to the x'ent of
700,000 to .( OO.WO balcp. This opin
ion is based upon the fact that within
a radius of 150 miles from Meruph s
fully 1,000 000 bMfS are rsieud auuu
elly, and that just ss nuturally rs
water feeks its level mutt that cotton
come to the point whsre It caa
be most ailvantHReons'y . ramlltd,
and that voiut is Memphis.
To handle this inevitable it creai-e
in our cnt'on receipts snd to affurd ev
ery facility fcr its rapid Iranpportation
1 ha Couiprefg Company has doler
mined to enlarge its capacity and ex
tern! is facilit es f or o ovine the sta
ple to dcub.e iti present limits. It is
our purpose to so increase our capaci
ty a to be able to carry, handle and
prepare fcr shipment iO.OOt) bales st
one time. In order to accomplish
th's result we contemplate an increase
ot two powerful pr.sses in addition to
the five now in u-e. one to be locifed
in the navy jard.on the ws' Bido of
the railrcal tricks, and the other on
I the y.cant property Of the company
' in Be nth Memphis, atjoinioK the de
pot of iheKfenaas City railrad. It is
also onr intention to erect at the lat
ter point a hrge cotton ware
house, with ample bttrage tOtita
lot all the freight that may come t )
u-. The rapacity of the nav ya'd
presses will m increased from 20,000,
1 he" pre s uit fiwe, t ) 30,000 ' bales.
This will necessitate the erettion of
additional platf.irms and inclosed
sheds aong the nver front,
extending from WincbeBtsr street t j
Auction turret, wuicn will give us a
wharfage 01 liuo or lUO leet, and en
able all river ireiuU carriers tj ban
die cotton for shipment with e.re and
convenience. Tuat work hits a
ready been begun end forty
men pre now engagea on it.
This will not only bs of immense
benefit to water carriers, but to the
rai'roads, as the Chesapouke and Ohio
railroad tracks ran piiraUel with the
proposed extension cf platform."
"What will be the cwt nf the con
"Will the new presses be ready for
ounnesa next la'i r
"Yee. Also the large warehonan to
be eiecteti in South Memphis. This
is intended to meet the new demands
upon our facilities likely to be oc
casioned by the completion of the
Memphis, Birmingham and Atlantic
road to Tupelo, c nnecting wi h the
Mobile and O io rod, a connection
which, it in Bft'd. w.U be cor.iiiuimated
by May 1. 1887."
"Can ihj roads now running into

butine s here, handle all the tot on
which von tbiuk is destined to find its
way to thij niarke' ?"

viile nd Nashville, (he Chesapeaka
and Ohio, and the Kansas City and
Biimicgham. Tntse outlets are suf
ficient to dispose of a million bales
wi hont impediment, and give to
Memphis superior advantages as a
cotton market. In fsct, it is no exsg
gerauou 10 say mat Memphis now
oners both to the planter and cotton
bnyer fncililif s thht are nnequaled In
the United Stales. It may not be
itenerallv known, but it la a nnld and
irrxen fact that the rate of freight on
cotton from ilrmphit to Liverpool i 30
cenu a oaie ut man from Mm UrUant to
Liverpool. This enables cotton buyen
to pay one-sixteenth of cent more
for cotton in Memphis than in any
other Sooth western market. The uner
ring inst netof the cotton exporter
has already discovered this and they
re comirg here by twos and threes,
making no great stir bnt getting in
their eff-ciive woik jut the
same. 'ihis is why Memphis
sold twice as mmch cotton as New Or
leans did last week, and this condition
of things is bnnnd to continue, only
more so. The Compress Company does
not desire to thiow any obstacle in
the way of oar city's development,
hence it is taking time by tho forelock
and making preparations to handle all
the business that may come along."

The second day of the Blood Horse
Association meeting brought ont a
large attendance. The track and
weather were fine. Betting was very
heavy on all event.
Firil Race. Purse, mile, all ages.
Six starters. Eatrella was a big
favorite. They were sent ofl to a strag
Ring stait, with Esrella and Echo
in tha lead. These two maintained
tbe had till tbe bead;tretch was
reached, where tbey were all nearly
even. Aftrran eic ting flush Ade

Tbey all g .t a good stait, except Ade
line Colton, wnj was tnree leogihs
behind. At the lait quaitor they wi re
nearly on ven terms. A desperate
fin sh on the down stretch resihed in
Mies Ford, the favoiite, winning by a
Dfspite the rain s orni of last night
auothtr large audience wai drawn to
the New Memphis Tbenter and heartily
spp'auded Mies Forrytti and the ex
cellent company Buppoitng her in
Marcelle, The p. ay mill bo repeated
tonight, and will give way tomorrow
night to Faith fid Html.
The sale of teats for Faithful ITiarlt
begins this morning, and as much in
terest is manifested in the production
of tbe new play theie will doobt'ess
be a rush tor choice seats. Jfihenlav
sucots folly pisses the ordeal of a
Memphis audience,, it is safe to say
that it will be everywhere accepted as
possrss'ng genuine merit, and the
reputation of the anthor warrants the
expectation that his play will prove
immeasureably superior to that
nnder which Miss Forsyth's com
pany is gallantly struggling. It
is-to be hoped that this expectation
will not be disappointed. The love
etory that runs through it supplies a
theme diversified by badinage and
high comedy." The dialogue has
been carefully written and even re
written by the author, no speech or
incident having been sliuhted. Miss
Forsyth will ilay the lrghly sympa
thetic part of a woman whom the
world condemns, but whose self sacri
fice and noble traits of character are
gradually unfolded in a story of "con
temporaneous human interest."
Tho charier of tho Tennesson Val
ley Ir.in acd R til road Coutpiny was
received yts'.erdnt, snd a meeting f
the ifccorpoia'irs will be held next
Friday for the purpose tf ellWting a

It. Moore atd H. Welter, and the pur
prses of the o'gtnit ition will proba
bly bs circumstantially deve'oped at
the coming meeting. Their charter
confers upon them lather extensive
privileges, including the building of
railroads, the development of mines,
the erection of furnaces, and, in short,
the doing of anything and everything
they may deem neceisary to fuitber
their own interests. Theie is evi
dently tha promise of a bonanza
in the company, as it wai freey
given ont tm 'Change yostetday that
a l the capital stock oi the CTcany
bad been subscribed for, and that the
surscriplinns were a'ready at a pre
mium of GO per cent. Mr. J. C. Neely,
who is one of the piiticipal promoters
of the enterprise, was interviewed by
an Ari'KAi, reporter yesterday, but
was disinclined to give anything ont
for publication until tho company had
elected it ctlicets. He admitted, how

again places Memphis in nearer cou

adds another obstacle to successful

Jacksonport to Batesville is but thirty
miles and that gap will doubtless be
filled in the course of a few montbs,
in time for the rpring tratie, enabling
our nmchanls to scour the rich coun

The Baltimore American publishes
a lengthy article commenting upon
tbe many rumors of proj, cted con
soliduiione, purchasing fur control,
proposed leaseie, etc., of ra lroads in
the Southern States, which article con
cludes rs follows: Iu regard to the
activity in Norfolk nud Wotern pre
ferred stock, it ia stated iu New York
that tho Pennsylvania RiilroadCom
pany is buyirg the stcck aho "for
control intending to add to it the
Southern system. Such a theory, or
slim ar purchases by any other groat
road, won Id explain the activity in
Shenandoali Valley bonds, for Ihis let
ter rosd is controlled hy the Nmf.ilk
and Wrstem, which during 1883 and
1884 at quired .1(1,571 shares cut of
3(J,0(J2 slmns of the Shenandoah Val
ley etouk, which was received in cav
ment. for subscription to 40,571 shares
rf Norfolk and Western common.
The Snecandoah Valley, which has a
trsllic arrangement with the West
ern Maryland Italtoad Company,
runs frtin lliigeratown to Roa
noke, va, whera it joins the
Norfolk and Western, which
runs to Bristol, Tenn., and
there connection is made with the
List Tennessee, Virginia and Ueorcia.
which also has a traflio arrangement
with tbe Norfolk and Western, and
which extends to Meridian. Miss., and
by tbe Memphis and Charleston (con
trolled by the East Tennessee, Vir
ginia and Georgia) to Memphis, Tenn.
The Mobile and Ohio roads run
through Meridian to Mobile. It will
be noticed, by reference to the lis's,
that the securities of each one of tbe
roads named have been active, strong,
or even excited at one time or another
recently, and, meanwhile, it has boen
reported that the Baltimore and Ohio
has secured a connection with New
Orleans, and the Pennsylvania is ex
tending its southern connrctions. The
Baltimore and Ohio was first said to
be extending its Virginia Valley road,
intending to reach, by lease or control
nf other roads, Birmingham, Ala , and
Tensacola Fla. Then the Southern pa
pers published rumors that tbe Balti
more and Ohio was endeavoring to se
cure tl.e Virginia Midland again, and
tbe East Tennessee, Virginia and
Georgia, and mors recently that
it proposed to reach New Orleans
from Cinolnnati via the Queen and
Crescent route. The questions now
being arked are which one of the
etoiies, if any, is true? may not the
I'ensacola and the Cincinnati Biorits
be blinds to divert attention from the
intermediate route ? or, if either one
be correct, is not tbe Pennsylvania
endeavoring to block the way, or at
least to secure for itself a similar
ronte to tbe month of tbe Mississippi,
wbich will enable it to fully compete
with the Bait more and Ohio. The.
railroad officials are entirely non
committal, though it was a week ago
announced semi-officially that the
Baltimore and Ohio was about to
open business aa far as New Or eans,
and it may be that part of what has
been aaid in New York and in tbe
South and West fa mere conjecture;
but, faking everything into considera
tion, it looks very much as if a big
railroad deal was on hand.

Agent W.Jt. Williams, 01 tne treasury

Tobin. It still be remembered that
they appointed J. W, Slansell, who
was objected to by Jndgn Hammond,
of the United States Distiict Court, on
the ground of inconjoetenoy.by reason
of Inexperience and lack of the general
knowledge required hy the United

Hammond a protest, which was for
warded to Washington, the Treasury
Department ordered Special Agent
Williams to proceed here at bis earli
est convenience and investigate and
report as to Mr. HUB sell's qualifica

been appointed. The result of the in
