The negotiations lietvvecn Mr. Morgan,
the gentleman ino-t Interested In the
Cairo aud Iucciincs railroad and the
Cairo aud St. Louis railroad company, re
lative to u coalition of certain railroads
centering at Cairo, wcro broken oil" be
causu .Mr. Morgan demanded inure than
tho Cairo and St. Louis rallroadcompatiy
could agrcuto moie than any reasonable
IMTson ought to ask that company tocou
cede. It was proposed, generally, that
tho Cairo and Vlnccnnes railroad com
pany should have the right to cross Ihe
track of (he Cairo and St. Louis
railroad company, and u-e In com
mon with that company, for railroad
purpose, the, laud given to Ihe company
by the trutces of the Cairo City Prop
erty. In consideration of this agreement
on the part of the Cairo nud St. Louis
railroad company, Mr. Morgan agreed to
eoitsiruct a transler Inclined plane
to the river, commencing at
or near the old fort, build
a frclL'ht depot near the old fort, to be
Used In common by the coalescing rail
roads, and to furnish money to llll Levee
street, so that t io tracks oi tue Illinois
Central might be taken up troin the fed

To this general proposition the ( alro

dined nlaue should be commenced near
and not at the fort. Iho Cairo and St.
Louis railroad company must get to tin
river for the purpo-e of doing the coal
business of the road, and the only way to
the river for the road Is over tho fort, If
tho Illinois Central should reme to lift
it trucks. 'Therclore, the Cairo and
St. Louis railroad company said to Mr,
Morgan : "We can't be shut out entirely
from tho river. We win bo it you
take tho fort. Wts therefore propo
that you commence your lucliiw new tho
