•pe«ch of Hob. Cassius D. l-ondoo, or
Worrco ooaBty, os the Proposed
eohoroi Bsiirosd mil, Bell vered to
the Moose of Bepresentatlveo of
Mississippi, May IT, 1870.
Mb Speaker: The hour has now arrived
for the consideration of the general railroad
bill, which was introduced into this House
by the gentleman from Adams (i|f. Trench),
and which entities him, in our judgment, to
the credit of having introduced a bill which
promises more in the way of developing the
resources of Mississippi than any other that
can at present be offered.
I am glad that occasionally during the
progress of this session, questions arise, the
consideration of which is not influenced by
party preference, and is not controlled by
partisan feeling.
I am sure that, in considering the bill now
before the House, we can all lay aside our
political character, and discuss this great
question upon its naked merits.
In my judgment, there is nothing, (un
less, indeed, it be the subject of education)
which is of more vital importance to the
material interests of the colored man and
the white—the Northern and the Southern
man, and all the people than is the subject
of railroads.
The present demands of our State—her
vast undeveloped resources; her genial cli
mate, and fertile soil, all assure us that en
terprise, and activity and labor will make
for her a bright aud glorious future.
The question of railroads is no new ques
tion. we have but to glance our eye over
the map of most parts of our country, and
we find the different sections knit together
by grand lines of railroads, binding the
different States, sections and interests to
gether as the body is interlaced and bound
with cords and veins.
Within our day we have seen States, slum
bering in inactivity, becoming rich and
commanding by the development of their
heretofore dormant resources, and railroads
have done it.
Wherever, as a general rule, the "iron
horse" makes his way the value of land is at
•nee greatly increased, enterprise fostered,
activity quickened, civilization advanced,
and wealtn flows in to the individual, the
State and the nation,
Miesisssippi, as is well known, has neither
money nor credit to aid in the construction
of railroads, as has been extensively done in
other States, nor, were it otherwise, could
she do so, as a constitutional provision,
which, in her unfortunate condition, is un
doubtedly a wise one, prohibits the loan of
fitate credit to any private enterprises,
It becomes, therefore, a necessity at once
apparent to all that she offers every other
possible inducement to the introduction of
railroad capital. »
The bill here introduced, is believed to at
onoe fill the measure ot all that Mississippi
can do in the premises. It is believed, too,
that it will accomplish more for the future
•f the State than even its most ardent friends
dare to hope.
It at once and for the future removes all
of the various obstacles hitherto 'n the way
of the introduction of railroad capital, such
as difficulties attendant upon expensive and
oit times impossible legislation; local ob
stacles, such obtaining the right of way,
with necessary lands, etc.
It says to the capitalist, we throw open
the field—here is at once tendered as the
law of Mississippi, all the various statutory
provisions which the wisdom of years of
railroad legislation in the older and more
essive States has shown to be most ef
progressiv
fective in aid of the construction of rail
roads. . If we can not help with material
aid, we will at least offer all the facilities af
forded by those pattern States of progres
sion—Ohio, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri—and
under the late regime, of Arkansas as well.
It wipes ont at one blow all special rad
road legislation, and substitutes instead a
law which is a complete railroad law of
itself, in fact, a complete digest of the laws
of our most progressive Western States,
passed to meet the various requirements in
aid of railroad construction, as also in
guarding the interests of the State. Let us
see what a eaving in expense alone this law
will be to our State simply in the way of I
legislation. There are now in various I
stages of manipulation an almost innumer
able number of railroad charters. Of how
much value, or how many, are and must I
ever remain mere paper schemes, is of little
consequence here. All will take a good I
deal of our time. It is, perhaps, not saying
too much that in the whole we would con
sume thirty days in legislating upon rail- |
road charters.
It is estimated that the expense of this
Legislature to the people of the State is two
thousand dollars per day. Here, then, is
sixty thousand dollars worth of time con
sumed in railroad legislation. Now here is I
a bill that at once answers every possible de
mand of the whole. Not one of these
schemes, if the proposed corporators have I
confidence enough in the success of their I
enterprise, or are able to subscribe among I
themselves an amount of stock equal to the
sum of one thousand dollars per mile on I
the line they propose to build, but can in-I
corporate under this law,
If they can not comply with this simple
provision, they most certainly have little
business to talk of building a railroad.
The proposed corporators have but to
write out their articles of incorporation, in
accordance with the simple provisions of I
this law, subscribe their names thereto,
with an amount of stock, as I said before, of
one thousand dollars per mile, file the arti
c es with the Secretary of State, and the
work is accomplished—their charter
effected.
It within two years a preliminary survey I
be made, five per cent oi stock subscribed I
be paid into the directors, and the work of
construction be commenced, the charter I
t» i°F 1 u i ne fy" n Jj le years. I
II at the expiration oi two years the five I
per cent be not paid in, the preliminary sur- I
vey made and the work begun, or if after
begun it bo not finished in ten years, tne
Ch <rn l fI
tbu9 > while extending the I
most liberal offers to all who desire to build I
a road, secured at the same time from I
P"f ln A . th ® hands , of mer ® speculators
who do not propose to ever build, but to I
or t0 pre '
vent others from building—a perpetual I
c vt F _____, „„ . I
Nor are we called upon to pass upon a law I
that is a mere experiment. On the con-I
trary, this law, as here presented, is a com-I
plete digest or compendium of the various
laws existing in the Mates of Ohio, Illinois, I
^I,* 1 Missouri and Arkansas. I
The incorporating clauses were, we be
lieve, originally drawn by no less distm
gnished a personage than Senator Trum- I
bull, of Illinois. At that time the Illinois
Central Company arrogated to itself the
right to control the railroad legislation of
that State.
By those various processes of fraud, I
manipulation and bribery wJiich have dis
graced most railroad legislation, and which I
this bill effectually wiped out, the Central I
Company were understood to defeat all char
ters for competing lines. I
Senator Trumbull conceived the idea of
a general incorporation law, which, p,. '
throwing open, under certain necessary re
strictious, the railroad field to all, should I .
act as a check ou all such gigantic ruonouo- !
lies, and at the same time preserve the
Legislature of that State from the charge o''I
corruption railroad legislation. Here, then
was the origin of the general railroad incor
poration law, since introduced in most
of the Western Slates, and destined to yet I
do away with all special railroad legislation
lta introduction into the State of Illinois, is
said to have worked a new and wonderful
era in the progress of railroads iu that I
State. It has remained a fixed law upon her
Btatute books ever siuce. Such general
satisfaction has it given, that, as under- I £
stood, a late constitutional convention has
forbidden its repeal, aud it i3 said that no
less than forty railroads are now in process
of construction in that State, under the pro
visions of this law.
Its succesu in Illinois caused it to be in- I
troduced into Ohio, where no effort has ever
been made for its repeal. I
Just priorto the war, (in 1858, we believe), I
Ihe principal features of the bill were intro- | '
duced _into_ the State of Missouri Here,
too, it has been found to work admirably, I
and has, undoubtedly, added hundred* of J
aSlllonijoyietcxible wealth of Uu. St*.
other State*, next took up the law in the
adding the provisions found in the
part of this bill, providing how, and
in what manner, counties may subscribe
stock in aid of contemplated lines of road,
In many counties of some Western States.
there bad been something of a bond war.
Counties, after having in good faith sub
scribed aid,in large amounts, by perhaps
small majority, were afterward so manipu
lated bv politicians as to endeavor to repu
diate the same ; thus causing long, expen
sive and bitter legislation, and tending no
little to bring the entire State into disrepute
in moneyed circles, as also, to most seriously
retard tlie progress of the road.
To obviate all this, Iowa made it first
condition of county aid, that an actual and
sworn survey, with estimates, be filed in
each county, with a petition of one hundred
voters, praying an election to decide upon
the matter ot giving or not giving such aid
as might be asked.
Instead of a bare majority of voters being
required to grant the issuance of bonds, it
was made requisite that two-thirds ot the
voters should so decide.
Once issued, by a two-third vote, the
bonds were so guarded as to forever set at
rest all doubt upon the matter of the princf
§*1 Bud interest being promptly met when
J "~
due.
The State, in fact, while not made of itself
responsible, was yet made the custodian of
the honor ami credit of the county.
It was provided that any bond, the
interest of which might be protested for
non-payment by the county, should be fiied
with the State Auditor, whose duty it be
came in the premises to see that the amount
due, with all co,«ts, be extended in the tax
lists of that county, to De collected in the
same manner as other taxes, and returned
to the Auditor, who in turn satisfied the
holder ot the bond. By this means all the
trouble experienced in the issuance
county bonds in other States was obviated.
In the first place, being issued by author
ity of two-thirds of the rotes there was no
chance tor the local politicians to make the
subject ot their repudiation a matter of ma
nipuiaiion at all. In the second place, be
ing thus guarded, they were readily dia
posed of at very nearly their par value.
This portion of the general railroad incor
poration law, thns introduced, has been
loiiud to werk most successfully, and to the
satisfaction of all interested.
By its aid counties have been able to se
cure more local roads for their own accom
modation than could have been built by any
other pwcess in a lo ig coarse of years.
Some Vo years since the main features of
the law, as here presented, were introduced
into Arkansas. As an almost immediate ef
fect we see some six hundred miles of rail
road in process of construction in that State,
and it is said that as much more will be an
der way during the coming summer.
It may be said that this is due to the aid
granted by the State. To be sure, this has
been a great inducement, but it is claimed
that far more is due to the provisions of the
general railroad incorparation law, a proof
of which is seen in the fact that some of the
most expensive roads in the State, which
are now being constructed, have no allot
ment of State aid at all, but rely on county
aid and donations of lauds as provided for in
this bill.
The States of Ohjo, Illinois, Iowa and Mis
souri, too, grant no State aid, but tender
instead the chief provisions of this bill.
I have thus briefly sketched the rise,
progress, aud effect of the general railroad
incorporation laws of the West
I will add that the late Constitutional Con
veution of Tennessee, provides for the en
actment of such a law as a necessity of the
age and Stile.
"The law here presented contains within
itself all the important features contained
in the laws of ail the States I have men
tioned* framed in aid of railroad construc
tion. It also contains all of the law which
has been found necessary in the governing
and restraining of railroad companies.
The features in the main, as taken from
the laws of other States, are word for word
as there found and have heretofore proved
themselves by many years of severe trial.
As here framed, it is undoubtedly the
most perfect railroad law to be found in the
United States
Since its original presentation but one
alteration or amendment has been made.
This is in the shape of a proviso inserted in
the latter part of section twenty-two, which
reads as follows: "And provided further,
That uo distiuction or discrimination in ac
commodation shall be made among passen
gers paying the same rate of fare."
Of course the colored members will fully
understand the import of this,
The bill, we claim, meet all the require
meats of those desiring special railroad
charters. They can not ask anything more
liberal than is contained in its provisions,
It meets, as well, all the requirements of
the State. It will immediately rid the Leg
islature of all railroad lobbyists, and leave
its members free and untrammeled. It will
also relieve them of all imputations of hav
ing been bought for this or that scheme.
More than all this, I know that this bill,
as here presented, has been submitted to
aud approved by some of our largest rail
road capitalists, in Philadelphia and New
York. They say, if the field be open, they
are ready to invest their capital in our rail
roads, but without such a law there is no
inducement in Mississippi,
In addition to all this, it is claimed that
no possible objection can be urged against
the bill. It has been thorcughiy tested and
tried in every respect.
It is therefore no experiment, but a cer
tain reality. It relieves us at once of all
future trouble in relation to railroad char
ters; relieves us of lobbyists, and of alfccor
rupting influences, and places our railroad
laws in unison with those of the most eu
terprising of the Northern and Western
States.
With the development of the vast re
sources oi Mississippi, no mau can fully
estimate what her future may be. The
progress of railroads in this country during
the last tweutv years has surpassed the
wildest dreams oi the railroad fanatic. In
1850 there were only eight thousand five
hundred and fifty-eight miles of railroad in
the United States, costing two hundred and
ninety-six million, two hundred and sixty
thousand, one hundred and twenty-eight
dollars.
In 1860 we had thirty thousand five hun
dr ed and ninety-eight miles of railroad,
costing one billion one hundred and thirty
four million four hundred and fifty-two
thousand nine hundred and nine dollars
($1,134 452,909). Before the close of the
year 1870 (estimating from well known facts
auJ established rules), there will be in the
United States forty-two thousand miles of
railroad, coating the vast sum of two bil—
lions of dollars ($2,000 000 000).
Railroad capitalists all around us have an
eye upon Mississippi. The Central and
Southwestern of Georgia, and the Bruns
wick and Albany, now in progress, will be
the most direct between the Vicksburg aud
the Atlantic. b

Sad Experience.—I have to relate an in
teresting event which occurred not long
since, and it is but a shadow of those tha
happen every now and then, but which are
not called to the public's attention for some
reason or other. There is nothing which
would contribute better in forming the
mind of girls than by bringing continually
under their attention the like examples, for
it would undoubtedly remind them of the
proverb, "Look before you leap."
About a year ago. there came an " isleno
from Havana to our lair city. Being young
of a genteel appearance, refined manners,
fair complexion, and extremely fluent in the
language of Cervantes, he did not require
long to captivate the affections of a little
beauty of the Second Disirict. The swell,
as customary, wore a heavy gold chain, fine
watch, sleeve buttons, aud an attractive
diamond ting, which no donbt contributed
some in winning the little prize ; for dia
monds of the purest water often dazzle the
eye, and sweet words touch the heart. Be
sides, many a one thinks that such as wear
the like must be gentlemen ; for a man of
means is a gentleman now-a-days,no matter
how he acquired his fortune.
Well, there are many such gentlemen in
this city who throng the thoroughfares
sporting gold chains, etc., and may often be
distinguished by their sleepish and ghost
like appearance. Yet, unfortunately, more
than one and once charming daughter has
been won, deceived and forsaken by these
outcasts of moral society. To return to my
subject; the day for tkeir betrothal was fixed
and fully carried out. Two months elapsed
when the husband (as I will now call him)
took passage lor Havana, leaving the re
cently made wife at her parents. No one
seemed to know the motive of his sudden
departure, and rumor spread that he had
abandoned her, but such was not the case,
for in a few months he was again in the
arms of the one that loved him. Though hi3
character was changed, he was not as
affectionate as customary. He did not
seem to take much ple&sare at home, and
would often remain out keeping late hours,
roaming about with friends. The youn
girl could not suffer the change, and she
would, at times, recall to his mind all the
promises he had made to her before they
were married, and how cruel he was now to
treat her so indifferently; but all to no
avail. Not a day passed without & quarrel,
and it finally became impossible to live
together, and they concluded they should
separate, which was effected by the father
taking his child again to his paternal man
So there is the once great pet of tho
house taken away frem a happy home and
fond parents, where she never knew what
it wa3 to suffer—led to Hymen's altar,
passed but a few months of wedded life,
and afterward taken back by one who will
never abandon her. GUS.
