Flattering Prospects for the Helena, Tupelo and Decatur Railroad. NEW DECATUR, A In., June 20, —(Special.)—The Helena, Tupelo & Decatur railroad was chartered iu Alabama aud Mississippi in 1888 willi terminal points at De catur, Ala., aud Helena, Ark. . Ii^ 1900 bv an act of the Mississippi legislature tne terminal point iu Arkansas was extended to Arkan sas City. Iu 1889 E. C. Fiiilef, a competent and enthusiastic civil engineer and railroad surveyor, made a careful survey of the en tire route, iu many places cutting out the right of way and blaziug the truil. Mr. Fiuiey is at this time chief of the engineering de partment at the St. Louis Expo sition. After much work had been'done on this survey the dis asterous panic of 1899 discourag ed the promoters aud for several years nothing was done. Iu 1897 Mttj. Medford of Tupelo, Miss., yice-presideut of the road, entered into a correspondence with L. Ray Nelsou of New Dec.itur re garding its possibilities. From that initial correspondence the ru-panut u-m-Lr Iih* n.vii I turl W D. Anderson, Mayor of Tupelo, Miss., is the president and L. Ray Nelson of New Decatur is the secretary, aud the actual work of organization of coustructiou is now entirely in their bauds, Maj. Medford having died last year at the very time when his life work was about to be accomplished. The officers of the Helena, L'upelo <fc Decatur have now (completed arrangements with a construction company of New York, and the final survey aud other preliminary work is being completed aud there is a prospect of every difficulty being oyereome. The people all along the route are enthusiastic and the tight of way is promised aud many donations of laud and money have been offered to L Rav Nelsou, the secretary in charge at New Decatur, Ala. From Decatur westward to the Mississippi State line there is uo railroad. Moulton, the county seat of Lawrence county, is com pletely isolated and discharged, having no outlook for their pro ducts. A railroad will lie the greatest boon this part of the country can he giveu. It is rather a surprise that this part of tile country, which is so rich in miner al and timbir and stone, and which is such a great fruit and cotton-producing section, should have remained so long in a help less condition from lack of rail roads. Some of the most promi nent men of the States of Alabama aud Mississippi are now pushing the work on the Helena, Tupelo & Decatur railroad and there is M A ^ Ail lif af ifo wini/iooo I'n I pletion ami being a paying road from the start. One feature about the building of this road is the fact that while the company will gladly receive voluntary contribu tions of laud and money, no beg ging has been done. The bonds of the company are on sale and those who wish to forward the buildiug of the road are being offered the bonds of the company in exchange for tlmir contribu tions. The road will run west ward from Decatur through Mor gan, Lawrence, corner of Frank lin and Winston counties and Marion county to the State line, through Itawamba county, Miss., to Tupelo. W. D. Anderson, the president of the Helena, Tupelo, & Decatur, was in Decatur this week and met a large delegation of the most prominent men of this city. He was most gratified at the state of affairs and promised to leave no stone unturned for completing the road. ---— A young man at Uauova took his best girl out for a ride.
