dumber of our leading citizen, a
publfc me'etiifg jvas held Saturday
night at lheconrt house for the pur
pose of 'discussing the merits of the
proposed railway amendment. The
meeting was characterized by groit
enthusiasm, the large coaftj room
"being filled to its utmost 'capacity.
Capt. "Wm. Kelly called the meeting
to order at 'Bight o'clock and stated
the purpose for which the citizens
had been called together. In forci
ble and pointed sentences ho .set
forth the salient features 'of the pro
posed amendment, its fairness to all,
and the great benefits that must ac-
cure to the lower Eio Grande from
its adoption. The great need of a
railroad to develop Cameron couniy,
and the failure of so many enter
prise's for tho construction of a road
lilt her, leaving Us almost without
hope, and the dreary prospect which
the frituro holds-for us, unless a road
be speedily secured were faithfully
"depicted by Capt. Kelly, who then
pointed to the wise provisions of the
proposer! amendment as affording a
final hope for securing the long
needed railroad'. He also explained
the provisions of the law, which al
lows rio greater 'tax than two p$r
