Laat Tuesday the oitjzens of Mem- held an election for the purpose of voting a tax .of 000 in aid of General Drake's railroad. The bonds are to draw eight per cent interest and due in twenty the interest to-be paid annually. We are not yet informed as to the result of the election. In Gharky's Con- tereativt we find the following article under the head of and Horse Handbills are posted up In public and a notice is published in another column of this apprising the of the town of that on next February the they will have an oppor- tunity of deciding through the ballot whether we shalior shall not keep pace with the progressive day and age and sup. plant our wagons and are slowly dragged through mnd up steep- hills Ind across marshy by Jaded horses and lolling pars propelled by running at lightning The company that are projecting the rail- road from Alexandria west to pose to build It by the way. of Memphis and give the'citizens all the advantages to be from said provided sold town- will take thirty thousand dollars stock In said fur which stock they must Issue bonds of the payable In twenty bearing elgjl per cent. to be paid annually. Bonds for one-half of the which la fifteen thousand are to be and delivered to the when the road Is constructed and can 'ore running on it and for the other half of the amount when the road Is built to the west line'-of this county. If the citizens decide In favor of accepting this proposition as a forlorn there Isnoth- ing in the future more certain than that they will speedily havecommunlcatlon with the outer world If they reject they may well at once their harp Upon a willow quit harping about high of returns for whatever they wagon off to and quietly reconcile themselves to a gradual but np or superseding of our town. Bnnd Hill was once the leading town In Scotland Memphis now but If the proposition concerning a railroad Is no prophet lives who can tell the name of the leading town ot this coun- ty In five fleeting years hence. The spot upon which It will stand may now be thick- ly grown up with hoop poles and hazel brush. It Is ho herculean task tor a rail- road to bring Into being rivals -to illberal and pcnnywise eventually wipe them out of existence. Money is' power. We now have an opportunity of enlisting that mighty power In our favor or against ns. The rood is offered to us at that and it Is optional with us to buy it or let our more enterprising do so. V If the road proves as efficient in building up Memphis as other roads have in causing the rapid growth of other by the time that the interest on the whole amount of bonds will have to be there will be at least twice the amount of wealth .here that there Is the burden will not be as heavy as It now net only appears to be but actually There are a few men among ns possessed of liberal minds and enterprising who wonld give one-half of the property they own rather than to have that rood the cold to Memphis. Suppose all wonld willingly do and the foregoing la a correct the town would prefer giving one hundred and twen- ty thousand instead of thirty thonaand.four times as much as Is asked to letting the road give a wide berth to Memphis. That is correctly that if se- tho road will Increase the value of town property to more-than what- it will now command. The question for ua to decide and vote upon shall we purchase the at the price it Is offered or shall we take the chances and let .the company construct the road on whatever line Us interests dictate The two lines have been surveyed and the difference in the cost of tying and bridging from Luray to the state 20 Is two hundred thousand dollarsjnst the amount that the eonnty has In favor of the Johnson township route. That township Is holding out strong in- ducements-to have the road built through and unless we u'p to the aa If not stronger than they do.they will prove the bear off the palm and ascend lit the scale of prosperity and wealth as rapidly as we will decline. There Is no doubt whatever but that the road will be speedily If not by Mem- upon some other and that If we reject the proposition now we shall never have an opportunity to accept any other proposition. That is what Is called a main trunk leading .directly from New York to tho Pacific which road would be worth four times the amount to Memphis that the contemplated Air Line road would be.
