THIE MISSOURI PACIFIC.
Below we copy an editorial from
the Concordia Sentinel on a recent
railroad deal made by the Goulds,
in which their system of railroads be
came the owners of the New Orleans
and Northwestern railroad. There
is no doubt that it is the intention of
the Iron Mountain railroad to follow
in the footsteps of the Yazon &
Mississippi Valley railroad, by build
ing branches as that road is doing in
many directions of that State. The
Missouri Pacific, which is a part of
the Irion Mountain system, which has
purchased the Northwestern road,
runs from Vidalia through Monroe
to Bastrop, which will be extend
(led north to the main line. It
also owns the road running from
Vidalia up through Rayville and
Mer Rouge and connects with the
Iron Mountain. It also owns the
Luna & Hamburg road, which will
be extended south to connect with
the Texas Pacific at Natchitoches.
and build west from HIiulburg to con
nect with the Iron Mountain. So it
can be plainly seen that it is the in
teution of the "Gould system" to
own the railroads west of the Mis
sissippi and to make a net-work of
short roads as feaders to the main
line. We believe that it is their inten
tion to build up the river, which will
give them a road equal in value to
anyk for business, and a country
equal as rich and more fertile than
the Mississippi Valley road passes
We want the railroad, and we
assure the Sentinel that if it is only
the rights of way that is wanted to
gives us this road, there will be no a
trouble in getting them from every
land owner in the parish of East
Carroll along the line.
The Sentinel says.:
This week a number of gentle
men connected with the Missouri
Pacific Railroad oame into Vidalia, .l
on a special, over the New Orleans
and Northwestern, and proceeded to o
Natchez to meet Mr. Louis K. Hyde,
the vice-president and general man- a
* ager of the latter road. On Thurs- 0
day Mr. Hyde transferred his road 1
to the Missouri Pacific, and we are "
reliable informed that it is the in- P
tention of the managers of this sys- .
tern to connect their road with the
Texas and Pacific, by building a
line from Vidalia to a point in Point o
Coupee parish; that is, if our citi- fa
zone along the front will give the is
rights of way and use their influence
in having the Bougere crevasse
closed. W~ih this connection built,
the distance will be seventy-five
miles shorter between St, Louis and el
New Orleans than any other route, of
and Vidalia will be on a trunk line, in
which will make it a most important is
thilpins g point. It is also said that in
this system will build a line up the b
Mississippi river, from Vidalia to a
Memphis, Tenn., running through b
tihe parishes of Concordia, Tensas,
Madison and East Carroll, in tis ,
state, and through a large portion
of Arkansas. Of course this exten. of
sion, like the one South, will depend
upon the people giving the rights of St
way and good will, but ho money he
bubsidies will be asked. This route o
has already been surveyed to Arkan- tO
sac City, where it will .connect with In
the Iron Mountain.
Forty thousand dollars a year is a
pretty lasrge salary for any man to str
receive; but that is what the Nation- th
at Park Bank of New York is pay- le
isg its president, Richard Detafield, In
to look after its affairs. an
Sam McEnery. the grand old war- foU
horse of D)emocracy of North Lou
sleiana, is said to be in sympathy with ce,
Hannas's ship subsidy bull, and that o""t
he will vote for the bill whenever it s
is brought up for passage. McEn- ed
ery must he getting in his dotage, aum
or be would not give countenance to fre
such a delberate steal as the ship
subsidy hill. The bill is dead as far bin
as the present Congress is concerned, bri
but the President has given it out that ord
he will call an extra session, which is goc
done in the interest of Hanna and of
his associates. cob
The accounts given of the grand- in
cur of the New Orleans Mardi Gras any
must have surpassed any of the 'on
many taken place in that city in the Ios
past. Mr. A. H. Morris was King and
and Miss Beestse Merrick the Queen. free
The, Times-Democrat gives the fol- goo
lowing itiseription of the beautiful by
