How It Is.
When a railroad oonnnntlnn with
tho Aransas Pass was first in nogotia- j
lion mo original proposition was that
tho city of Waco was to givo depot
grounds, the right-of-way and twenty
thousand dollars in cash. This was
not consummated and then the build
ing of tho road by m stock company
was undertaken. This fell through
and led to negotiations by which an
agreement was made between tho
committee ol fifteen and Mr. Cameron,
the ono to grade the road for the fif
ty thousand subscribed and between
the Aransas Pass aud Mr. Cameron
that that road was to give Mr. Came
ron $150,000 in first mortgage bonds.
This arrangement fell through be
cause a provision against consolida
tion of roads in tho constitution Inter
fered. Then the old original proposi
tion was offered Mr. Lott. Mr. Lott
demands that Waco give bond to so
curo right-of-way. Mr. Cameran
wrote Mr. Lott yesterday that Waco
would not give bond but would turn
over the bonus and guaranteo that
right-of-way would not cost more
than $10,000 and there it Is. No an
swer has yet been received.
