Brobston Fend'g A Cj., those live

and aim* of this paper’s urgent ap

have brought about a good start.
On yesterday, council met in called
session. Tbere was earnest intere t
centered in the gathering of Bruns
wick’s aldermsnic board. Mayor At
kinson rapped for order and then
stated tbe object of the meeting, lie
said in substance:
“Gentlemen, I have called you to
gether to listen to a proposition
fraught with interest to Brunswick.
We have in our midst a gentleman
from New York. Col. E. C. Macben,
who, at the invitation of Messrs. Brob
•100, FeniTg & Cos., real estate agevts,
bas come to tbis city to talk abont
building a tailrond to Birmingham.
There it nothing we would rather hear
about, 1 am sure, and If it is tbe pleas
ore of oounoil, we will hear from Ur.

Brohaton arose and briefly stated that

With Col. Machen regarding a railroad

bere to look Ir'o the siluHiorn bmee
bis arrival, Col. Macben bad me' many
of the oitizens and the mayor and al
dermen, and to them bad outlined cer
tain plana to work on. i'txee plane
were based upon certafb concessions
from the city and citizens, and bad
been stated to a majority of the mem
ber* present Individually, whioh bad
familiarized them wltb what waa
wanted from the city council. He
aaid that terminal facilities, right-of
way, and sites for shops, were wanted,
and urged the oounoil to graDt every
concession pt eiibie.
Mr. Fendig was then called for, and
sdded bis urgent rrqueate to counoil
to act favorably towards the proposed
The mayor then called on Alderman
Mason to tell council the result of in
vestigations he bad been pursuing in
the mutter, and Aldermen Mason re
eponded at length. Ha said that o*l,
Macben waa a builder of railroads and
a developer of big enterpriser. Per
sonally, he was wealthy, and in addi
tion, was amply backed by financiers
to carry be beoame ir
tererted in. He came to Brunswick I y
! invitation to yuk about railroads, and
more especially the puildirg of one
from Brunswick to Birmingham, Ala-
He was favorable to it, and as in the
past he bad oouaj’uoted ’2,000 miles of
roads, there was no reason why he
could not build this one, if he could
be secured to take bold of it. Hs did
not ask for money, or for the oi izeus
of Brunswick to involve themselves
one and( 1 ar’e worth. Tbere was, how
ever, certain oonoefsions necessary for
the city to make in order to secures
any road, and these must be made to
Col. Macben, if he was expected to
matter favorably to hisfliian-r
cial backers. Tbe were
in the way of terminal facilities,.right
of-way, and sites for sheps, and the
city had all of them, and could well
afford to grant them in order to'get
Brunswick railroad competi'ioo, and
unstop the bonis this ciry is now in
as resptots such facilities.
Alderman Mason then offered a reso
lution giving the proposed road a 99
year lease od the Dennis FoiDjt wharf,
tract, tbe Kennon Manufacturing Co.’s
site, and a right-of-way, full descrip
tion of which appears in tbe regular
oflioial proceedings of counoil publish
ed in this issue, Tbe resolution was
passed without a dissenting voice, and
then council adjourned.
After adjournment, tbe aldermen
and many oitiseos present ducuesed
tbe proposed railroad, and all were
enthusiastic in proclaiming it a com
mercial God-send to Brunswick.
