lluhed to the Appeal More
Rumors were current Inst right of
the actual consolidation of tee two
tret rel'way companies o( this city.
Tbo details of the consolidation are
the same ts have been projected for
several weeks. It has been known
Binco Monray that all nhslacles to the
proposed consolidation were) removed
bv conceited actou of all stockholders
cf both companies. When the propo
sition was mad-t some t'me ago tho
bat is of the trade ww ata'ed as follows:
Consolidated bonds to tbe amnnnt of
$1,000,000 were to be is uod. 01 this
amennt $100,000 of bonda were to be
held in trust I t the tedemp'lon of a
like amount of bords issued by the
old company aod which are now ont
stamline. The proceeds of the sale of
$100,010 cor.s dictated bom's, which
are woith par, were to be ex
pended in improving the property
of 'he o'd company by relaying new
rails and purchasing row improved
car-. Fivo huudred thonsand dollars
in bonds wir to go to the stock ho'd
eisof the old conopsny, and tne re-rauinit-g

etocklioldcrs tf tho new company,
who were ti retire tho $200,1 00 in
bonds now held by them. Stock to
the amount of fl.OoO.OtlO was alto to
be Issued, which wil'. be divided
rqniilly between tho twoccmpanios
It was agreed at that time that the
Bond of Directors should cnnsit of
four st'tckholdeis of ihe Citlsons'
B.reet Railway Onmi-any and three of
the Memphis City Railway Company.
It is alleged that tliis norreu.eut
as elated was the baai on
which the cmcolidation was con
tumated yesterday. The presidency
of the consolidated roadB will be bt
Btowed upon a prtiri inent member of
Ihe Citizens' Btreat Railway Company.
Theae minor detail, however, aie
said to have not yet been fully agreed
npon. Enough is known, neverthe
less, to warrant the assertion that final
action, both as to the new boatd of
directors and the election of i Ulcer?,
will be taken today.

Chicago, III., December 28. Tim

and Wrightwood. On account oi ill
health he has not beeu in Chicago) in
ten years, and some time previous to
leaving appointed Lyman his agent.
In 1873 tho property wis erctioibered
only one fourth its value, but since
lo73 Wright's titles have been gradual
ly wiped out by means of foreclosure
suits, in which it is said Lyman
entered appearance, but without au
thority fn m Wright. Wright claims
Lyman, though an agent, should have
notified him of the suits, and having
failed to do so decrees of foreclosure
are null and void. Ltman ia aleo siid
to have wrongfully claimed title
to tome ol Wright's poperty.
No acoiutt has beni rendered by Ly

for full accounting and decree setting
