"' w RAILROAD MTilWltim.- - ' VOLUME XIX Jl rt, Vf COLUMBIA, ADAIR 1 COUNTY, I HA4feV4 I2( 1916. " 4iy jftC4fe? NUMBER KENTUCKY, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 24 MEETINGPUT ON THE ADAIR gerous. MAP. Last Saturday afternopn a meeting was held in the court-hous- e to hear the proposition of Hon. W. G. Hunter, of Louisville, concerning the building ota railroad from Columbia to some point on the L. &N. at Campbells-ville- , Greensburg or between the two places. A good number of our citizens were present, and sufficient interest shown to justify an effort to meet the terms proposed, which are as follows: -- Dr. Hunter and associates agree to build,.equip and put into operation a steam line of railroad from some point on the Greensburg branch of the L. & N to Columbia, by January the 1st, 1917, if the people of this section will give the right of way, survey, eta, 'and ?40,000 cash when the road Is completed, and in operation Gen. James Garnett, of Louisville, conservative in his estimate of men, stated that he had investigated the ability and resources of the parties who propose the building of the road and that he is convinced of their good faith and that they are amply able to build it. Dr. Hunter made a painstaking explanation, outlining his plans and giving the name of his associates and the reason for asking the contribution, to which no one interested in the development and welfare of this part of the State could object. It is a clear, clean proposition made by parties fully able to do what they agree to do, and is submitted to the people of this county for immediate acceptance or rejection. The cost of securing the right of way, surveys and organizing expenses is the only money necessary to be spent by our people until the road is completed, and not a dollar of this to be collected or used until a contract has been made with Dr. Hunter and associates to build the road. Just w"hat will be needed to do this is problematical, but certainly will not be expensive. There is an abundance of evidence to believe that the right of way will be freely given by the land owners through whose property the road would run, and good reason to expect substantial aid from the people at the other end of the line To make a long story short itis un questionably the supreme time for the people of Qolumbia and Adair county to put up or shut up. There is no d distime for parleys, cussions and submitting other propositions, for the promoter of this' enterprise has fully and thoroughly worked out every detail that leads to the proposition submitted and no other. We all agree that we need the road; that it would bring rapid and 'substantial development; that we are able to meet the requirements, but are we willing to do it? Failure to lo so would" be worse than folly it 'would be business suicide. The proposition of Dr. Hunter appealed so .strongly to all those who heard it, that an organization was immediately formed to press the work to a success-fu- ll conclusion if it can be done in the short time given. Several thousand dollars were pledged, and all present indicated a hearty endorsement. Certainly it would be more preferable for some company to build a road without any expense to the people, but for more than a hundred years this has failed, and this and future generations will long-winde- Dr. M.

The organization to be formed in this county to be known as the Columbia Railroad Company will have the power and exercise the right to locate the road. It may, and doubtless will have a preference, as to Greensburg or Campbelisville, or to a point between the two, but it will decide that at the proper time to its best interest. So it seems that the people of Green and Taylor counties ought to take notice that it will be to their interest not only to be friendly to the enterprise, but active in assistance for we are going to connect with one or the other or split the difference wide open.

If we fail to get the road you will not lose a dollar regardless of what you subscribe. No road, no pay. It's a safe proposition, but the time is short for action. The Woodman Reel. As had been' advertised for several weeks, a Modern Woodmen reel was put'on at the Parlor Circle, last Wednesday night. This exhibition was for the benefit of the local Camp, and for all others who are interested in the order. The feature of the picture was the showing of the Modern Woodmen Sanatorium, located at .Colorado Springs, the patients and the manner of treatment of members who had become afflicted with tuberculosis. One patient who was in the last stage of consumption, was shown, bidding his wife and children, in his Missouri home, farewell, and -- leaving for the Sanatorium. He could scarcely walk when he left, and in nine months lie. returned and embraced, his family, a well man. The picture- brought- - ten der emotions to every one in the audience, besides showed that the order was doing a grand work for suf- rering humanity. The picture was pathetically explained by Mr. J. W. DeHart, who is the State Manager for the institution. All who witnessed the exhibition were delighted, and were also loud in tneir praise of the grand work that is being done by the Modern Woodmen of America. - April 21st at eight o'clock.
