Mr. Morris. made a very eloquent speech girlng tbe history of the difflcul ties overcome In the management of the road and its present Condition. He says tbe road has not been a finan cial success since Its extension frpm Woodsfleld, on account of the great de pression In business, which he illustrated by tbe fact that, there was more grain and stock shipped from tbe Depot at Woodsfleld the first year of the road than has been in the last year on the tflAd'e road from Zinesville to' Bllaire. The following resolution waa intro duCed by Dr Farquhar: Ketolved, Tnat it s tbe sense or mis meetios tbat tbe stockholders of tbe B , Z.AC R.R. pay a voluntary assess ment of ten dollars on each share of stock held by them to assist, in paying off the present liabilities of said railroad provided the syndicate indemnify .such stockholders from present and future liabilities. .
