addressed tho following letter to Mr.
T. M. Logau. pf Murphysboro. It 'dj

of the Cairo, fe St. Louis rallroud com
pany: Dkak Hm: Since I saw you at St.
Louis, wo have voted ubscrlptlonH iu
three townships In thif (Monroe county)
amounting to$W),000. Nextriaturday we
will vote ?10,000aeh in two other town
ships thus making with tho ?1(X),000
county Bubfcrlptlon, $210,000 In our
county. Ked Hud, In Randolph county,
(but essentially a Mouroo county town
nhlp) will vote $60,000 on next Saturday
Sparta Im at the corner of four wealthy
and thrifty townshlpa, In each of which
from thirty to fifty thousand would bo
voted readily If our friends would only
set the people to work. I wa9 over thero
to eo wlinl could bu done and they are
now moving, hut too slowly, and icly too
strongly on getting a rallroud "anyhow."
Carondalet promises fair, and I think
will yet make a good subscription. (They
are six mllea bolow St. Louis) they arts
building furnace, Ac, ami expect to do
all the iron malting for St. Louis, and
cannot well allurd to pay tho transporta
tion of coal up to St. Louis on one tifde
of the river and down on the other. So
I have no doubt they will pay us to .stop
the coal as We go up.
As yet wo havo not been nuceessful
with the townshli) In St. Clair county
above u, Cahokla.
It may be that IJelleville Influence has
hnd BOine control In the matter. At nil
events they have not yet shown any dis
position to help. All together Am "out
look" Is good, and I am very hopeful.
