mroen .1. F. Edwards and the Chamber
■of Commerce for the building of a
Frailroad to Brownsville, the fate of
I which will be madu known this after
। noon nt 5 o'clock.
Mr. Edwards submitted a written
pro|>os>tion to the directors of the
Chamber of Commerce this morning.
After an hour of discussion, it was or
dered that a committee of four be ap
pointed to meet with Mr. Edwards
and draft a contract for the building
of the road and report back to the;
central body this afternoon at the ho.ir ‘
stated. The following were appointed
F. L. Hillyer. H. E. Hildebrand, Au
gust Briain, Jr., and William Cassin.
In the proposition of Mr, Edwards it I
was stated that within ten days aftw '
the grade has been completed from
Jourdanton to the Meifna r|ver, San
Antonio must be prepared to deliver
terminals and right-of-way withiu the
city. This clause formed the principal ■
“sticker.” it being argued that the I
chamber has no money with which io '
buy terminals and right-of-way and ,
should not bind itself to a time lim't I
so short. Whether work should pm- ;
ceed from San Antonio south or from '
Jourdanton to this city was a second ]
matter that entered into the discussion. ‘
The committee was appointed to act .
with Mr. Edwards in overcoming these :
obstacles, if possible, and to draft a ;
contract on lines governed by these j
and other propositions.
Can’t. Announce Backers.
Mr. Edwards stated that he was still
unable to announce his backers in the
enterprise, but that al] arrangements
are made and the line will be built
from Jourdanton south, independe.it |
of San Antonio. The right-of way mi l |
bonuses, he declared, are secured to the,
Nueces river, !H> miles from San An I
tonio. ft is proposed to build in a di '
rect line from' Jourdanton to San An
tonio and from Jourdanton south the I
route parallels the I. & G. N. at a dis .
tanee of about 40 miles.
“I have offered to buy the Sim- j
mans line.” said “anil hope
