ArKliii-nl In Favor mt tU Cairo nnd Nn
In the Commercial Conventions, held
In Memphis, New Orleans and Louis
ville, tho subject of a Southern Pacific
Railroad received that consideration
which its importanco demands. The
Memphis convention dotermlued in
favor of tho Memphis and Sun Diego
route, tho convention havlugbeen culled
for the porposo of endorsing it; but, at
Now Orleans, when tho partisans of
Memphis were oir their guard and had
neglected to pack the railroad comml
tee, sound logic hod its proper effect, and
tho committee unanimously agreed to
report iu favor of the Cairo and Mnzat
lan route. At Louisville resolutions
were adopted in favor of tho touto along
tho thirty-second parallel, with branch
es to St. Louis, Cairo, Memphis uud
Vicksburg ou tho east, aud to Muzatlan
or San Bias, ou tbo west.

Fulton, on Bed Blvor, through Texas to
tho Bio Grande, and thence to Muzatlau
on tho Pacific, will, by Its connections,
already completed, uid to bo niadu with
tho North and with tho East, with the
Atlantio and with tho Gulf of Mexico,

to tho question is-tho second resolution

Convention.. Tho, City .of Cairo, orthe
west bank 6f tho Mississippi river. bpnbV
Blto to it, being tbo 'initial point; 'let W'
examine some of the advantages of the
proposed routo. In the first place it lies
through a mild, genial climate, extend
ing from tho 30tU to the 23d degree of
latitude, In which show 'and lcetrare?
rarely aeon and in no part will - the road,,
be obstructed or trains be Impeded by
them. In tho next place It passes',-lsYHr
wholo length, through one oftheThdrft
beautiful and most productive regions of
tho whole continent, adapted to the pro
duction of all cereals and grasses, fruits
and vines of the temperate aone. as well
ae cotton and a great variety of tropical
products, and Is, in great part, the best
natural grazing region of the waele.ooa?
tlnent, where herds Increase and more
rapidly multiply, and at less cost, than
In any other region; having great supe
riority ovor any other proposed route 1st
ncany all of these respects.
In tho third place, it ie the shortest
possible route for rail way to the Pacific
from all Northwestern, Northern, East
ern and Atlantic cities, as will be readily
seen by reforenco to the maps. The
whole coast; of the Continent tending
east of southeast from the head of the
Gulf of California to the Isthmus of Pan
ama. The port of Mazatlau, havlnir an
excellent harbor, with ready access to
tne ocean wituout uouuung the cape at
the southern promontory of Lower Cali
fornia, in the next place, this route
will, throughout its entire leneth. be of
easier construction aud have lighter
grades than aro to be fouud ou any other
llue, which is an Important consideration
ror a railway mat is expecteu to uo so
largo a business.
In tho uext place, all of the oitles and
sections, by rivers aud railroads already
built, or soon to bo built, can have moro
ready connection with the starting point
of this roud and with different portions
of this Hue, than with any other.
As a sort of corollary from the foreao-
log premises and demonstrations, I otter
me tmni resolution ror tne consideration
and acceptance of the Convention, with
tho assurance that the route proposed in
Che secoud resolution for.tho Great Inter-
oceanic, International Railroad, to tho
raciuc, irom uairo. via lectio itook, Ful
ton ou Red river, through Texas to the
Rio Grande, aud thence through Mexican
territory to Mazatlan on the Pacific, Is
exactly the samo as that contained la
thu bUl which was before Congress at
last session, reported on favorably, with
great unanimity, by the Commttteo of
the beuate. but postpone 1 until next
session, and is tho ouly routo that will
probably receive the favorable consider
ation of a majority of both Houses of
Congress. On this subject, permit me to
say that I. speak advisedly, and In my
Judgment, this Convention will do well
to aim at what Is practical aud attain
able rather thau at what might appear to
some to ue more uesirauie.
llie roaa can oe uuiitou tne line nro
posed iu my resolution for many millions
less cost, will have very easy grades
throughout, except at tho pass of the
Coast Range or Cordilleras, which is
known to bu moro practicable thuu thoso
further north, and thut portion which
lies In Mexican territory pusses through
tho richest mining region of the wholo
On a former occasion, at a convention
In thU city. I advocated a routo for a
railroad to (lie Pacific, exteudlug from
Memphis via Littlo Rock, Fort Smith,
up the South Fork of tho Canadian, over
tho Llano Es acado or Staked Plain to
Albuquerque, on tho Rio Grande, and
thence by the Zunl pass and the Letter
uud Grout Colorado, or by the valley of
tho Ulla to Sun Diego ami to San Fran
cisco iu preference to that on which tho
roud Is now being completed, or thut di
rectly west from St. Louis, through Kan
sas to Denver, etc., tho routo so streuu
ouslyadvocated by tho late Col. Benton,
1 still deem the lino on, or, near, the 36th
parallel as far more practicable und
preferable, In every respect, to any
other moro nortlitTii route. Later aud
more accurate info -tut Ion convinces me
that a llue from Memphis, via Little
Bock, Fultsn ou Red river, El Puso,uear
tho li-d parallel, to San Diego or Ban
Pedroou tho Pacific, would be preferable'
to that along tho 35th degree nf latitude.
Yet the routo proposed In my socoud
resolution, fioai Cairo through Arkansas
ami Texas to tho Rio Grnndo, thence
through Mexican territory to Mazatlau,
is, iu my Judgment, incomparably supe
rior to any other, being 5(W or GOO miles
Tho dMunce from Cairo, by the pro
posed routo to tho itlo Grande, Is about
1,000 mile, thence to Mazatlan is COO
miles; allowing fur deflections from au
airline, say 1,000 inlles, will niako It in
all 1.700 miles. From Cairo to New York
Is 1,00j miles; from Now York to Mazat
lau in all 2,700 miles. From New York
to San Francisco via Chicago, Omaha
aud tho Northern Paciflo Railroad Is
3,1'JO miles, und from New York via St.
Louis, ou any practicable route, is about
tho f-umo distance, making a difference
of 700 miles, between the routo now com
pleted to San Francisco and the proposed
road to Mazatlan. From all points as
far weht as Kansas City, St. Louis, Mil
waukee and Chicago and the Lukes, a
difference of from 300 to 400 miles will bo
found in favor of tlio Southwestern
route, and a still greater difference, as
we advance to tho East and South: viz:
from Indianapolis GOO miles, from Balti
more nnd Washington 700 ml lbs; from,
morion: uu nines, via linoxvme, jsnsu
villi), Jackson and Fulton, Tennessee, to
a connection with tho Fuclflo Road at
White river; from Charleston, via Mem
phis 1,000 miles: from Savannah, via
Montgomery, Vicksburg and Shroycport
1,100 miles; and from New Orleans the
wholo dlstauco to Muzatlan will bo
about 1,200 mltoa, from Gal voston 1,000
miles, from ludianola about 000 miles,
uud from Corpus Chrlstl or Aransas Hay,
about 800 miles.
With such ouormous differences in the
distance to tho Pacific from tlio principal
cities and soaports, with much easier
grades throughout, and uo obstructions
from ice or snow, can any one doubt
