EVAXSVILLE AND (III EAT
Tlie following extract in regard to
the above road is taken front the Ev
ansville Journal of the 2d inst.:
We arc advised that the Viec Presi
dent of the alwve road will leave in a
few days for a trip over the projioped
line for the purpose of conferring with
the friends of the projMt in the coun
ties through which it w intended to
run, and taking such nteps as may Ik
most expedient towards canvassing
for Bubsciptions of right of way,
etc. He will le accompanied by a
competent civil engineer, who will
make a general examination of the
country previous to commencing in
strumental purveys. The very great
benefit the building this road will
confer on the counties through which
it will p;iss, and the necessity for its
early construction, should ensure for
these gentlemen the hearty co-operation
of all interested. The work to
le done necessarily involves a large
amount of laW, but if projcrly dis
tributed, it will not Ik; onerous on any
one. It would, therefore, le well f r
the public spirited citizens along the
line, who feel interested in its success,
to organize a movement anion them
selves, without waiting for the few
(officers of the company to do this
work along the eutire line. The
Journal has already pointed out the
advantage this road would prove to
the people along the line. Nowhere
in the southwest is there a section of
country more in need of a railroad,
nor one that can be more lK-nefitedliy
having one; nor is there on the other
hand,' a section of country that pos
sesses greater facilities for ft mishing n
large and highly remunerative bun
iiess. The Directors have called a meeting
of the stockholders of the company,
to Iw held at Evansvillc, on the 22ml
of the present month, and it is hoped
and expected that all who feel inter
ested in the success of the entepri.se,
and can possibly do so, will visit
Kvansvillc on that day.
In compliance with said request, the
Hoard of Mayor and Alderman at

K. A. Collins and Dr. M. D. L. Jor

This road would have been complet
ed, doubtless, under the first charter,
had it not Ik'cii fir the introduction of
a certain omnibus railroad bill that
secured sufficient strength to defeat
it. This was a calamity. For there j
Ls no Tennessee road running central- j
ly through West Tennessee. j
1 will now sjicak of the projxisition
our company submits. It is, that the j
county of David-on transfer to our ;
company the sum of 8200,000 of:
stock owned in the Louisville and j
Nashville Bailroad, on condition that ;
t!io TnJlVlll ( 'lt;ltrlTtiuiirl oiiil SJf '
Louis road first see completed theroad
IkhI of the . Tennessee Central from
Huntingdon to Trenton, a distance of
thirty-three miles, and without the
use of one dollar of the stock so asked
to le transferred; and greater still, on
the condition that it agree to iron and
equip the Tennessee Central from end
to end, a distance of 97 miles, and op
crate the same without transfer at
Huntingdon in this vfay adopting
our road as its own line. Ix'st 1 for
get later to do so, let me now state
that, inasmuch as I find the road Col.
Vaughn is here representing, of which
lam favorably impressed, asking for
thc transfer of a portion of the stK-k
we are asking lor, and as I do not de
sire to antagonize his enterprise, I will
say that our company is very willing
to reduce the amount of our applica
tion from 200,000 to 130,00!).
Happily for us, since the Nashville,
Chattanooga and St. Louis road is
willing and ready to back us in so
large a way, I am relieved of the ta: k
of saying a great deal that might
otherwise be highly necessary. In
the pn-porition of the road, which is
a home road, and that has your
confidence, we have an expression
of opinion as to the value of!
our road. Would this road throw
one million of dollars on a worthless
enterprise? This road has experience,
capacity and solvency and capital is
always sensitive, and unless the road
would prove a paying road, the Nash
ville, Chattanooga and St. Louis road
would not endorse itto such an extent.
Hut someone may say the Nashville,
Chattanooga and St. L;is road ought
to huihrjyour road, as that company
is more deeply interested than an
other corporation or persons. Will,
gentlemen, this reminds nie of an K'iir
rence in my county of Gilisou.
Some years ago a certain individual
built a mill on 'tlie old 'Macadamized
and lniittMi stage road from Trenton
to Brownsville, on a road that had
been a road from time immemorial so
to speak, and the public had kept up
the road. But no suiner had this in
dividual built a mill on this road
without injury of any sort, than a
party formed against him to compel
him to keep up one mile of levc-e and
bridges across the Forked Deer river,
lie said, gentlemen, I pay as one of the
laxly-politic, and this is all you do.
Hut, as I have a larger interest than
any other jierson I am w illing to pay,
jKTsonally, several hundred dollars "to
put this road in repair. Now, this
individual had a larger interest and
was willing to tay for it. This is thc
status of til. Cole's company, if it
has a larger interest. Can any one
after hearing this company's proposi
tion read, say that it is not willing to
pay for that larger interest? But
neither in the one case or the other
diK the existence of the interest of
one party d'troi the in1rrd nj evcry
Imly rbf. And surely, when we ro
memlter what the Nashville, Chat
taiHKiga and St. Louis road has done
for its stockholders, as well as this
county and city, we can not charge it
with closeness or littleness. It has
worked thc value of its stock up from
20 cents to 75 cents on the dollar
since the war. It has bought ami
repaired the old Northwestern road
at a cost of near 54,000,000, which
road, together with tlie Nashville and
Chattainxiga road, has Ik cii run in thc
iutereut of thus county and city, as far
as was legitimate, as even- one knows.
And now this same company tenders a
million dollars to reclaim alienated
territory and connections to this city,
if tils people will only grant the rea
sonable aid asked. With these great
facts facing us, will any one say this
company is not progressive and willing

A few words as to the cost of the
preparation of the road-bed, ready for
the reception of the iron rails, as this
last expense Ls put out of the way as
before explained. The whole line be
ing surveyed, and estimates of the cost ,
of the road-lod ready for the iron, uu- i
deroathof the Chief Kngineer, John j
U. Tnman. haviii!? been maile. the I
whole cost amounts to S3GG,000, from
Huntingdon to tlie Mississippi river.
This is cheap construction, truly. But
the country through which the road
passes is capable ot anonling tins; and
iv way of verifying our engineer's cs- i
"mates I lxg lcave hereto refer to a re- i
iKirt of Col. Morris that Col. Cole, has
had the kindness to hand m since my
arrival in thLs city. Col. Cole in or
der that he might be fully advised as
to the progress of our work and the
character of our line, sent Col. Morris
to West Tennessee to go over and in
spect the same. This he did, and re
jxirtetl that we had now 14 miles of
new road, which with the 9 milessub
scribed bv the Nashville, Chattanooga
and St. Louis road that has never
leen used, makes 23 miles of road!cd.
In this he fully sustained our engineer's
report. He also says of Capt. In man's
estimate that "I am of the opinion the
work can lie done for an amount ex
ceeding it (Capt In man's estimate)
very little if any." So it appears we
can stand the touchstone of investiga
tion, and have made a sound rejKirtof
the cost of our road-bed ready fur the
But I must hasten. Is the County
of Davidson interested? This brings
me to sjeak of the country through
which our road runs. Diverging from
the Nashville, Chattanooga md St.
Louis at Huntingdon, it runs through
the best half of Carroll, leaving Madi
son close to the left, then entirely
through the heart of Gibson, then
through the new county of Crocket,
leaving Dyer close on the right, then
through one corner of Haywood, and
then entirely through Lauderdale.
This makes a central road through
West Tennessee, and the best part of
it. All these counties are among tlie
Inst in jTenncssee; and Lauderdale,
though among the younger counties,
will soon Ik; at the very head
of the list. Let me refer to
Gilisou county, as some evidence
of the character of the coun
try through which our road passes a
section, sirs, that has a rich trade to
give, but now cut off absolutely from
this quarter. By reference to the
census report of 1870 of industry and
wealth, it w ill be found that GiIson
county sto(Kl second in the State in
the aggregate of agricultural produc
tions, her aggregate lieing 83,327,000
that year for cotton, this county stands
fifth in the State. Sirs, there Ls a
rich local trade for ninety-seven miles
along our line, that desires to come
here, and yet is prohibited. Were
this road built the county of Davidson
would have an outlet for surplus stin k,
meat and grain, and the city of Nash
ville for manufactured implements and
fabrics, and for her healthy and in
creasing w holesale trade. Besides, two
very valuable connections would be
gained. One at Milan, the other at
Kiplcy. (The first a New Orleans con
nection so much desired by intelli
gent railroad men. This connection
would le exceedingly valuable to this
place. And the mutuality that would
exist between the N. C. and St. Louis
road and the Mississippi Central
would afford cheap freights on that
line. At Kipley a Memphis connec
tion is formed. At present our West
Tennessee system is adverse to com
mercial intercourse here. Let us sec.
Tlie Memphis and Ohio road at one
end points on Lmisville, at the other
on Memphis. The Mississippi Cen
tral on New Orleans, and connecting
at Cairo with the Illinois Central, at
the other on Chicago. The Mobile
and Ohio on Mobile and by the Iron
Mountain road on St. Louis. And
the new road being built, called the
Memphis and Paducah, bears on other
points. J ne old northwestern, winch
shears one side of West Tennessee,
finally ending in Kentucky, is the
only West Tennessee road that is op
crated in the interest of this section.
Partly as a re.-ul t of this isolation, a
new State movement some months ago
sprung up with us, and a convention
w as holden to form a new State out
of Kentucky Purchase, West Ten
nessee and North Mississippi. lam
no advocate of a new State; nor do 1
charge your county, gentlemen, with
thc duty of holding West Tennessee
in the old fold, but what I say is, if,
while promoting your own great in
terests here in supjMirting the projiosi
tion submitted, you in any measure
throw a block in the path of the new
State movement, I shall only rejoice.
What w ill lKithe value of the stock
that your company will deliver us in
return for the stK-k asked to be trans
ferred? some one may ask. In reply,
I say it does occur to me that
it will certainly be worth as much as
your Luiisville and Nashville stock.
Col. Cole is of this opinion. In fact,
if this county take Col. Cole's road up
in thc projKisition made, that proposi
tion is about equivalent to saying the
road shall lie built and the stock in it
shall be g iod. But I hold out no
bright and alluring pictures, for if the
transferred stock of itclf were forever
sunk, there is yet a big value received,
a large return to this banner county
of Tennessee. . - w
Ihavespokeii.'gentlenien, of the West
Tennessee trade, but I have not pre
sented a still larger, and even thrill
ing, view of the case. On reaching
Fulton, the first Chickasaw Bluff on
the Mississippi river, and the liest
point from the Ohio river to the gulf,
either for transfer ferry, or in the
great future that awaits us asajteople
for a suspension bridge, we are w ithin
72 miles of a connection w ith the St.
Louis aud Little Bock line, that at
once connects us with all the great
Western and Southwestern railways
by which thLs line by Nashville" lie
comcs one of the great inter-Oceanic
lines either sweeping to upper Cali
fornia, and superceding the Northern
line that is for so long a time Mocked
by the rigors of mid-winter, or reach
ing thc Pacific Ocean at San Diego, or
still U'ttcr reaching the Pacific at
Mazatlin, Mexico, which last connec
tion when made will draw the two
oceans up near at least 800 miles, as
will certainly le done. At. present,
from two able quarters assurances
have lieen given that w hen our road
is built to Fulton, the gapof 72 miles
shall be forthcoming, or at all events
either of these sources will co-operate
to that end. Indeed, w ith our road
finL-hed to such a jwiint, its western
end, no one can prevent the building
of a connecting link.' Then, gentle
men of this court, you and your jeo
ple are on one of the most favored
inter-oceanic, lines, coitnccting west-
wardly as stat-xl, and eastwardly at
Norf k, Chail.-ston, and other puint
on the eastern sestbotird, and with
eastern cities. I have heard it slid
here that you desire more eastern
competition than you have. It seems
to nie voii ought to le more anxious
about your western lines. But with
this great inter-oceanic line adopted.
and the ro:uls east of you having
an outlet bv your city, and still w est-
want by means oi roaus inai u win oe
necessary to use, the strong pressure
of se!f-in terert will coiniel your pres
ent Eastern lines lieyond Col. Cole's
rxul to reduce their charges to the
lowest possible rates. Here will then
be a competitor clear through to the
Louisville and Nashville road. Self
interest in this case will prove oin
nitent. But I must close. In conclusou,
gentlemen, do not let any preju-
rdice to railroads swav vou. The war
has intervened, and very d'irfereut
results, in many cases, have been
brought out. The owner of the soil Ls
very much interested iu railroatls.
In 1832, when our internal improve
ment jKilicy was adopted by the Legis
lature, the value of real estate was, jkt
haps, about 100,000,000. In 1800
it was over double that sum, without
taking into the account the inereused
value of real estate in towns and cities.
You have here, gentlmen, a great
county, and one in thc past that has
lieen alive to enterprise. But you
can not all' ird to sloop. KailroaiU add
to the value of la!r, the laborer get
ting more for his products, as charges
are reduced. Commerce has built
Chicago, St. Louis mid Cincinnati.
And they appreciate this. Look at
Cincinnati, giving ten millions even
for one great Southern road. You
have some great things here. You
have the capital of the State. You
have the great IwMik concern and the
Vanderhuilt, and other great founda
tions are licing laid. Other sections
of,the State have st.nid by you; now
iu turn act equal to the great oppor
tunity offered, which passed, can i;ot
be recalled. It is a matter of value
received to you, and I hojc you will
act w ith impartiality and w ith a sense
of your interest in the premises as it
exists. I thank you, gentlemen, for the
patient hearing jjou have given me.
After Mr. Cooper finished his speech,
some discussion was had by the mcm-
Ik ts of the court, and the importance
of the Tennessee Central w as agreed
to by many, if not all of the court
But as the court was anxious to con
sider the matter more at length, the
application was filed to lie heard at
