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.
