Tho cpmplcMJ f tho Iron Mountain
railroad opens lip communication be
tween St. Louis and Mobile that is only
.thirty miles uhortor than that furnished
via Illinois Central through Cairo. This
fact, taken In connection witli tho assured
completion of tho Cairo and Vincennes
and Cairo and tit. Louis railroads, within
the next two year, gives ipeclal pro ml
nonce to the Junction railroad project,
connecting Cairo with the Mobile and
Ohio railroad at; Moscow, Ky., aome four
teen miles distant from Columbus.
The Illinois Central, the Cairo and
Vincennes and the Cairo and St. Louis
roads, terminating at Cairo, must form
closer Southern connections. While the
twenty miles travel hence to Columbus,

and clatter of railroad travel, thochanges

the route oontisuousj or the requirements
of tho times will not be complied with.
The Junction road would bring trains
to a point directly opposite Cairo, making
the shortest possible, route between Bt
Louis, Chicago anof'Moblle. As a few
hundred thousand dollar will accom-
