Corpus Chrlstl Texas December ltA
rousing mass meetlrs aa held at Mar
ket hall last night and a ery large crowd
was present The mcetlnc was cnlled
to order by Juduc O It Scott ho slat
ed that ItB object was to raise the balance
of tho bonus for that Brownsville rnll
road after which Colonel N Gussctt nas
made chairman and Mr J y Ward
sectetary and speeches were then made
by Judeo Scott Hon James 11 Wells of
UrownsMlle Judge Bethel Coowood of
lnredo Mr D lllrsch and Dr 1 H Hard
ulcke pastor of tho Baptist church Hach
speaker told of the great bcnellt of such
u road to Coipus nnd Southwest
Texas and wns loudly applauded After
the si well tnaltlnp Mi H P Tucker of
tho sollcltlnB conimltteo cinvnsicrt the
crowd and when he had llidshed It was
found that ho had enough subscribed to
complete Corput Chrlstrs share or the
bonus A few thousand dollars more Is
yet to be raised by the county but those
111 a position to know say that this will be
forthcoming an dthat tho bonus Is good
ralsid Hon James 13 Wells faya
that Cameron and Illdalcw Counties will
be icody with their share by the time the
holldajs arrive and of Oils he feels cer
tain Mr Wells Is strongly In favor of
the rood and although tie subscribed lib
erally to the bons at this end of the line
he uenerously helped Corpus Chilstl out
Inst nlRht by subscribing a thousand dol
Kiis to her share of the bonus Mr Mil
ler tho New York capitalist who pro
poses to build the road was telegraphed
today of the status of the bonus and will
probably arrive from New York the latter
part of tin week and begin at once mak
iiiit arraiigementc to commence the work
of construction It Is needless to add that
tho Corpus Christians as well as the
UrownsvMilan are overjoyed at the pros
peels of having their tonus connected by
rail at an early day and tho moment
active work btglns on the road complete
change will come over this entire section
of country for good times which have
not been been In this section for many a
day will come again and business In all
branches will be revived
Mnnr Ileetlvershlpa for flip Year
The Post has received an advance copy
of an article on railroad receiverships
which will appear iii the next Issue nf the
Railway Age Tho following extracts ore
made therefrom
During the year now clostng nearly 13
per cent of the entire rallnuy mileage of
the United States representing moie than
12 per cent of the entire capitalization
has gone Into the hands of lecclvcrB
During the two years ISM nnd 1S93 the
companies for which receivers were ap
pointed repicsent more than 19 per cent
of the mllcnge and neatly 10 per cent of
the capital stock nnd bonds of all the
rallwass In the country
The Philadelphia and Heading failure In
February was tho first great wreck of the
year mid although several others of Im
portance soon followed It was after the
panic began that the most notnble calami
ties took place On July 2j came the Krle
talluro In August the great Northern Pa
clllc confessed bankruptcy and In October
tho greater Union Pacltlc system went
Into the hands of receivers Meantime
und since less notablo companies though
many of great Importance have dropped
Into the Insolvent list until now two
weeks before the clone of the sear we Hnd
In the record of companies for whom re
ceivers have been appointed since January
no less than seventsone roads with near
ly 2lWiO miles of line an outstanding
bonded Indebtedness of almost 51000000
nnd capital slock aggiegatlng more than
f511000000 making a total of almost J12SS
000iV of stock and bonds from which oil
returns have surpended with the certnlntj
that a large part of their value will he
wiped out before the long process of the
couits Is ended

The sequence of receiverships Is forc
clwire sales and In this direction the rec
ord of 1K13 Is encouraging In mleuip and
amount of Investment the foreclosure
of last jcar are less than for several sears
previous showing that the harvest from
the rop of receiverships sowed In the bnd
tlm s of 1S5SS7 has been nearly gathered
Twentythree roads were sold lo the high
est bidder In 1S93 but they were all rela
tively small their mileage aggregating
only HIO miles and their capital stock
and bonds only 47SCOnO Contrasted with
the record of new defaults these figures
are a relief nnd sct tho loss which must
