TEXAS, TOLEDO AND RIO GRANDE
A recent special dispatch from Flora,
111., speaks thus of the new nirrow-gauge
roid that is comiog to this city:
"The Toledo, Texas aod Rio Grande, that
will form the nnin line, in conjunction
with the Caito and St. Lnuis from Elthitm
station to Cairo of the Toledo, Cincinnati
and St. Louis on the northeast and the sys
tem of Col. Paramore on the southwest, is
now considered a fixed fict. All along the
line the best of feeling is expressed and
donations have been granted. The whole
line is now ready for active operations. The
contracture aro now at their poets, prepar
ing for work as soon as the weather will
allow them. Twelve thousand tons of 2 10
pound steel raila are to be delivered at
Evansville, Bhawnectown and Cairo by
April next, with eifht locomotives; 100
construction cars and fasteuings, bolls and
spikes for the line are now being negotia
ted for, to be paid for on delivery. To
further show the importance of this great
enterprise and the favor it meets with
aoroaa, it may Do statea that a company
bag been organized to build a line for the
trunk line in Williamson or Jack sou coun
ties to Metropolis and opposite to tbo city
of Paducah on the Ohio river, south
through Tennessee via Paris, and on to and
through Alabama, known as the Toledo,
St. Louis, Paducah and Great Southern
railway company. The importance of these
lines to southern Illinois and to the city of
St. Louis, as well as to Toledo, on the lakes
is apparent to any who will but glance at
the map and notes points and territory un
occupied by railways at this time."
WHAT TO CALL THEM.
From the Paper and Printing Trades
Journal we copy the following sensible re.
marks on a word that ia now so generally
uaed as almost to have made it an Englith
word. The authority for its use aa below
ia from a roliable source :
The use of the comprehensive French
word employe, signifying a workman, as
sistant, clerk, or one of the hands employed,

no reason why it should be ao constantly
mis-spelt and mis-pronounced. Printerc,
are great sinner, and where tbey err others
must perforce follow. As to pronunciation,
one often hears it callon "omnlove" and
employ," but seldom with French sound

use, employe means one male, and em

Messrs. J. K. Vou Eighen and II. II.
Iluydecuper, Dutch capitalists, whose
home is in Amsterdam, Holland, are mak
ing a stay of a few days iu the otty, and
are stopping at the Southern. They ara
both young men, very prepossessing, and
altogether cosmopolitan in their depart
ment and knowledge. In conversation
with them lad night a Republican reporter
learned that they are making a tour of the
Unitod States, combining business with
pleasure. Holding a very large number of
the bonds of the St. Louis ami Cairo nar
row g iu'e road, and hearing contradictory
reports as to its management, thy desired
to make an inspection for themselves, and
incidentally to obtain some general infor
mation concerning other rondj whose are
offered in the European mtrkcts.
'You would be surprised," said one of
the gcotleme, "to know the irauienba
number of American railroad securities
which are held in Holland by capitalists.
In fact, I tell you the truth, I know more
about American railroads than I 'do about
thoie of Europe, merely because our busi
ness makes tint knowledge necessary."
"Your roads over there are not repreaett
ed in the markets as outst"
"Oh, n . You see the roads over there
are as a rule under government control,
there being only three in Holland, tur in
stance, which are own-:d by private indi
viduals." "Have you laws governing railrond rates
and preventing discrmioation there!"
"Not exactly that, but every private roid
iscompelled to submit its schedule of freight
and passenger t irirTd to the authorities each
year, and if the rates are in any cise exces
sive the gjvernment baa a right to modify
them. We huar no complaints there of
distortion or unjust discrimination how
ever." "How about accidents on your road?"
"We have very few, indeed. All, or nearly
all, of our roads have double tracks and
are better ballasted than the majority of
"Do they make aa faat time?"
"Just about the same as here say about
89 miles an hour."
"Have you inspected the St. Louis it
"Yea. When we arrived in Cairo, Su
perintendent uanutton turmsued us a
special car and we made a trip over the
road. We found it to be in excellent con
dition, and although the rails ure of iron,

ilton's intention, aa fmt as the earnings will
admit of it, to lay in a stock of steel rails,
and he is specially anxious to take advan
tage ot the present low market. We think
that the fact that they Lave not bad a wheel
off the track in a year tpeaks very well for
both the ro-id and the management."
"How is it for an investment?"
"That is difficult as yet to say, but we
think it will pay five per cent., and as it
derives its support from way business
chiefly, it must always improve because
the country through which it passes is
rapidly opening up. If it ouce gets suffi
cient local business to pay, then it is aafe,
because there is no probability that it will
ever have any mora competition than now."
"Was there not a proposition at one time
to make it the connecting link between the
Texas narrow-gauge and St. Louis!"
"Yes, but the negotiations failed. It
luema to me that the TrX is narrow-gauge
people would have served their own inter
ests best by effecting the arrangement, be
cause shipping over the Illinois Central
and Cairo Short Line, as they do now, they
have to change tbe trucks of every cr.r
from narrow to standard gaugo. Of
course it is quite a drawback to the cairow-
gauge that it cannot cross the bridge; but
that, wo think, will be ovorcouie before a
Tbe information that a bill for a new
bridge over the Mississippi at Chain of
Rocks is pending in Congress proved vry
interesting to the gentlemen, as it created
ons more possibility for crossing, which
maysorvolt present plans fail.

Y. M.C.A. WORK.
We have Just received the report of the
third international conference of the Rail
road Young Men' Christian Associations
of tho United States and Dominion of
Canada held in two sections at St. Thomas,
Out., and Springfield, Mass , In May 1832.
Tbo pamphlet contains letters and ad
dresses by leading railroad managers, in
cluding Messrs. C. Vandurbllr, W. Thaw,
Devexeua, Dickson, Hughitt and others.
Among tho papers of special interest are
those of Reuben F. Smith, of Cleveland,
on "The Value of Secretaries," and W. It.
Davenport ot Erie, oo "Has a Railroad
Official the right to use tho fends of the
Railroad Company to aid this Work for
Railroad Men?'" .
Tbe railroad department of tbt sssocls
tinn work, begun only a few year ago in
very small way, has grown until it now has
branches on many leading roads, with 50
secretaries or superintendents devoting all
their lime to the care f these branches.
Reading rooms, libraries, parlor, amuse
ment rooms, bath nom, dances for instruc
tion unci hospital equipment, are among the
Christum Agetu 'uB employed.
The work has ccm mended the interest
and npprovnl of railroad managers to such
un extent that t lies'! secretaries are most of
them on tho pay rolls of the companies,

their employes In making the work efficient
