These three committees at the meet
ing to be held tomorrow morning, will
organize into one joint committee,
elect a chairman and arrange a pro
gram, as well as decide upon a date
for the coming of the railroad officials.
Whether or not the committee will
make a canvass to see just what can
be offered the railroad to extend to
Brunswick, is not known, but it is
hardly probable that this will be done,
as the committee will first have to as
certain just what the railroad com
pany will ask of the people of the
city.. After their demands have been
made known the committee will then
take the proposition under considera
tion and see just wbat can be done.
The business men of the city arc
now thoroughly interestel in the com
ing of this new road, and anything
‘reasonable will be done by them to se
cure it. It is hardly thought that the
promoters will be unreasonable in
their demands, as the extension oi
the line to this port will mean as
much lor the road as it will for Bruns
All members of the above names
commit l ees are requested to attena
the meeting in the council chamber
at the city liaii tomorrow morning at
11 o’clock. It is the duty of every
one of tnern to be present, as the mat
ter to be discussed is a most impor
tant one to the people of Brunswick.
