Dallas Tbx Oct 7 Dallas Is not
very liberal in granting subsidies to pro

terprising In tho matter of Uklng advan

line Somo mouthy ago a proposition was
made to build a lime nt railroad from Dal
las to Albuquerque N ftl on condition
that Dallas would subscribe a bonus
amounting to 81000 it mile for tho first
suventytlvo miles Tho proposition was
favorably considered by business men
and local capitalists meetings wero held
and committees appointed tosolicit sub
scriptions and they went to work with a
great flourish to raise tho rooucr For
somu weeks tho iffort was continued
with apparent prospects Of success but
gradually lutercst dlod ont until
It Is almost forgotten that a bonus was
ever contemplated for tho Dallas
Northwestern or Gulf Pacific road In
terest then centered on a proposed exten
sion of tho Missouri Pacific to IHUsboro
or Waco aud right of way was freely
given by property owners along thejroute
lu addition to a 10000 cash bonus raised
by tho smaller towns Dallas was re
to subscribed 20000 and tho
atuouut appeared so small that onethird
was subscribed at the first meeting called
to consider tho matter and it was
thought tho remainder would bo easily
obtained beforo tho cud of tho week
Committees were appointed to mako a
thorough and expeditious canvass of tho
city and report tho following Saturday
Then tho tlmo was extended to tho fol
lowing Saturday then t Thursday to
day when tho president and secretary
and two reporters assembled and trans
acted nil the business of tho meeting
which was to adjourn Tho total
subscription thus far Is understood to bo
811000 Whotbor any further effort
will be madu to raise tho proposed amount
of 80000 or whether bettor success
would crown tho efforts of tho solicitors
Is purely conjectural but It looks very
much like Dallas will never havo any
more railroads than eho has It she has to
pay anything to secure them
