M C Forbes At Head Of
The Movement Which

About twenty leading business
men met Tuesday night at the office
of the Forbes Mfg Co to discuss
the question of an interurban elec
tric railroad M 0 Forbes was
made chairman and Frank Hoge
secretary Following the consid
eration of the subject last summer
Mr A It Eckles cashier of the
Planters Bank Trust Co has con
ducted an extensive correspondence
with capitalists in various northern
cities and many of them have stat
ed that northern and eastern capital
is seeking such investments in the
South where local capitalists will se
cure the rightofway and take 25 to
35 per cent of the stock The esti
mated cost in a country like ours is
20000 to 30000 per mile includ
ing the power plant and rolling
stock the average being about g2
