The Reelfoot Interurban.
Mr. E. B. Stribbling, of Nashville,
has been in the citytbe past week.
Mr. Stribbling has had considerable
experience in promoting and building
electric lines in Tennessee and came
here to investigate tbe proposed line
from Gibbs to Samburg. His company
ad heard of tbe work, such as sur
veys, right-of-way, etc., aouu wjuic
years ago and sent Mr. Stribbling to
investigate. He has talked to business
men and has met with the Business
Men's Club. He talks fair and reason
able and his proposition is most feasible
and practical. He is merely investigat
ing prospective sections hereabouts and
that is what he is here for. He pro
posed to give the -situation a thorough
looking over and actual expense money
was all he expected while he was on the
job, which woulil be small, and the club
agreed to his proposition and be is now
going over the routes surveyed hereto
fore, notiug the condition of the coun
try, kind of soil, number of inhabi
tants, etc. When be completes bis
work he makes a report to the syndi
cate, and if feasible, they send the en
gineers at their own expense. If an
electric line from Gibbs to Samburg
would pay, we get it some day. We
think it will pay.
