'1 lie Cairo nnd Fulton Hallroad -nil
it Texas Connection,
One of the Greatest Itullnay Kuter
prhis cu the American Continent.
TheLtttla Kock, (Ark.,J 'GaxetU ' re
ferring la a rscent Isiua to the Cairo and
Fulton railroad, and Its connections, says.
The c7tapltllon of tbo Cairo and Fulton
bridge across the Arkansas river at this
paint, makes another ra In the history of
our city, and Is another evidence of the
Indomitable pluck and energy of that cor
poration. Since Mr. Allen became the
head of tbo onterpriio no railroad in the
country was over built moro expedi
tiously. During the past three years the
Arkansas branch of tho Iron Mountain,
ono hundred and eleven miles of the
rosd; the Cairo and Fulton from M oark
to Fulton, three hundred and four miles j
and the Cairo branch of tho sama road,
seventy-two miles, havo been built and
fully equipped making, in all, four hun
dred nnd clghty-ieven miles of road. lie
sldoi this, the bridge across Kd river Ii
nearly cornploled tho nineteen and one
half miles between Fulton and Texarkana
Is graded and tied ready for tho iron. On
no great railway enterprise that w can
now rocall, unless, perhaps, th Union
Pacific, was work evnr pushed mors rap
Idly and satisfactorily. Arkansas is
greatly ludebtad to the head of this great
enterprise, Hon. Thomas Allen, for the en
ergy displayed by him. Ho has pro
ceeded quietly and unostentatiously with
his work, and unlike someothor Aakansas
railroad men, has let the politics of tlo
Btate alone and attended strictly to his
own buslnese. Political schemers and
bluckmallurs have tried repeatedly to
thwart him in his undertaking or levy
tribute upon him, but he has succeeded
df'pita their efforts.
We now bavo two routes to the Knit
over tho Cairo and Fulton road the one
by St. Lculs and the other by Cairo. As
lojn as tho gap between Fulton and Tex
arkana is built, which will be but a short
tima now, a connection will be made with
the International Hallway uf Texas,
which runs diagonally aurcis that
State, &s the Cairo !c Fulton dose across
thi. At Loogview tbe International
road crosses tho Toxas .V Pacific of
Torn Ssolt, now running from Shrove
port to Dallas; at Palestine the Hous
ton fc Groet Itorthurc rood, going
to Houston and Galveston, is inter
sected, and at Her.rno tho International
crosios the Texas Central, which runs
from D.niion on the border of the Indian
country, to Galvestcn. The International
then p'rocoeJs on a direct line to Austin,
the capital of Texas, and ultimately on to
the P.io Grande, and to tho city of ths
Mor.ler.umas, and (till on beyond until the
t'acitlc or Gulf of California is reached.
At Texarkana, the Trans-Continental
( Fremont's enterprise) forms a connection
with tho Cairo and Fulton. This road
runs up the valley of the Kd river,
through one of the richest sections in the
world. It passes through Sherman, and
on to Fort Wortb, where a junction is
made with tho Texas Pacific.
No railway line on the continent will
form a greater highway than tbe Cairo
and Fulton, when the Texas and Mexican
links are all cemplotcd.
