They found tho people and pro
moters at that point inactive but be
fore they had been in town long a
meeting of tho citizens was called and
those gentlemen explained the situ
ation fully to the people at that end of
tho line. While the people over there
had not lost Interest in the proposition
yet there Was some misunderstanding
as to tho timo that it was necessary to
have the stock subscriptions and right-
of-wav secured and they wero resting
easy expecting to commence active
work after the holiday season. Messrs.
Webb and Laughrin gavo them a con
vincing talk on just what was neces

to thoroughly understand it and it
