THE ROAD 18 A CERTAINTY.
We accepted an invitation from Mr.
W. K. Spurlock last Friday, and in
company with Mr. Robt. Nicholson
went up to Cannrmel, Ark., to look at
the work, if any was really being done
on the construction of the railcoad ;iy
the contractors for the Memphis,
Helena and Louisiana railroad. We
had beard so many rumors about the
back line and the front line that we
thought we would go and take a look
so as to report the facts to our readers.
We left Providence last Friday eveu
ing about half past 2, behind two of
Mr. Spurlock's fine mules, and at 7
o'clock we were at Cariola, Ark., a
distance of 35 miles. We remained
there Friday night in the care of Mr.
Peter Ford, who runs a dry goods
store, drug store, undertaking estab
li.bmeut, hotel and livery stable, be
sides being a justice of the peace, and
a few more enterprises that we forgot
to put down.
We got an early start from Cariola
atnd was at Carmel, a distance of about
6 miles by 7 o'clock. It was the most
horrible road we ever saw.
Carmel has three stores, but the
owner of the large plantation, is Dr.
C A. Scott, who we found to be a
high-toued gentileman, full of push and
energy, and who informed us that he
had already sold twent) lots, and fine
stores wouli be erected on them at an
early date. It is a beautiful location
for a town, right on the brink of the
hills, and there is nothing to keep it
fromt being a hlotling place.
We met Mr. McCarthy and soti, the
contractors, who we found to be affr
ble and hospitable gentlemen, who had
breakfast prepared for us and talked
railroad all the titne.
The distance from the Louisiana'line
to T'rippe Junction, Ark., is 42 1-2
miles, and from Carmel to Trippe 35
miles. The entire ling is covered by
contractors with the exception of 3 1-2
miles, which was thought would be
taken this week. Fromn the Louisiana
line to Carmel it is 7 1-2 miles, and
Kilbourn & Wetherby have taken a
contract for 1. 1-2 miles of this from the
line north; then Mr. Nicholson joins
them with 3 miles through old fields.
Ibis leaves about 3 miles on the south
side of Bayou Macon to be let, whichl
is very bad work. Front the bayou to
Cl'armtel the distance is about a mile,
anto the embankment for this distance
was to have been completed to-day
part of it being a 16 foot till. and the
heaviest work on the line. Work was
started Monday north from Carmuel
and these contractors have four miles
of work. The right of way, one huun.
dred feet wide,, from Carmel, both
north and south, is cut out as far as the
eye can see. Mr. McCarthy informed
us that with good weather the 42 1-2
miles will be ready for the cross ties
and rails within three months. Tint
ber, ties and other material is being
brought to both Lake Village and
't'rippe Junction in large quantities.
We hardly think that work will be
started south of the Louisiana line
within three months. We were given
to understand that the Arkansas works
would have to be completed first, and
then large forces would be started all
along the line in this Mtate. The road
is a certainty, and all the work we saw
is several miles south of where they
would have taken the back line, if
they intended to do this. So there is
nothing to do but wait, and only a
short time at that, when wo will have
a railroad at last. Then we will have
a boomuing parish, and a booming and
real live town.
