J»13 8m THE C18TUAL MltlMUtBI. Thtf purchase of the franchise and hterestsoMhe St. Loo is and Kansas Jlty Short Ltnt by the Central MUsou* wa» ratified yeiterday at St. Louis y the BoArda O f Oireotors of both roads. The Directors present from Vlton werei Messrs. 11. R Phiohey and M. H. Topping, Mr. M'PIke being bsent m California, At toe Short Line meeting there was a lively discn »ion nd an earnest protest was eatered by he minority representation against the ropo»ed absorption of the Short Line raoohue, aud (wbstdes by the Central, at without avail, for the consolidation as d«ly rat tied by a vote of • to i be joint meeting also ratified the agreement and under it tbe folk wing onrd of Directors was selected t John Perry, George I. Post, Gtoree W. 'arker, J. T. K. Ilayward and M. C. JaUoo, of St. Louis; tkeveuson Burke, 'resident of tba Bee Line, Cleveland | R. P. Williams, Fayettei J H. Wangh Columbia, Mo,; John H. Uartb, HannN al; Frank C. Hollands and D. M. lendersoD, New York; J. d. Watson, Fulton, Mo.; anal H. B. Phlnney, of Alton. Tbe ratlhoatlon of purchase of the 9bort Line and the election of Directors was really all the business accomplish* d. < Br«ryihiog else was left to tbe >ew board wkiuh embraces th* names of some of the leading o»piuU»t(> and •ilroad men of the country. As to the ower behind tbe throne there seems a o« a varwty of opinions. The Globe- democrat says: Tbe board is strongly Vanderbilt, ontfruiing the statumunt* that- the tral Missouri M to be built in that ut«r««t. The scheme for entering 8t. Louis by the use of tbe Colorado track* « very favorably viewed, and it is bangbt will b« adopted* Ids thought bat at least $850,000 of tbe Short Line ubsidltt* will bu found available. On the other hand the Bepublictm *ay»; Tb« consolidation of the tit. Louis Unas* City Sbort Line and Central dbsouri project*, was tffuoted yester- lay. If H'said the bonded debt will be (30,000 a mile, and tbe sum of the hare capital 910,000 000, divided into sja.OOO 000 preferred and 88.000,000 common slock. Construction will ba* gin on the. eastern division a,"HUH Febuary tbe U. The mileage of tbe whole ine between St. Louis and Kansas City will be about 260 miles, which will b« seventeen ra\l«* shorter than the VVn- asb and twenty three miles shorter ban the Missouri Pauific. Those who •could Know all abuui it say thut neitb» er tne Vanderbilts nor the Bee Line company have any tfoanoial interest whatever in tbe project. There seemi to be no reasonable doubt, notwithstanding the Republican'* opinion, that the new ro*d » a Vauderbilt and Bee Line interest. One of the new directors is Stevenson Burke, Priuident of tbe Bae Line: another u Goo. W. Parker, President of the Cairo Short Line, both Vanderbilt road*. Frank C. Hot* and*,a third Director, is Vice Pre'sideai of the L'ike Erie and Western, another Vanderbilt line. Uf course the election of these men mean the road is to be an extension of tbe Bee Line and the extension is to be west from Alton not from St. Louis. The Pott Dtoatch admits this: tbe (JCoin democrat and Republican ignore it aud try to figure out itaat tbe road will enter St. Louis over tbe St. Louis and Colorado from Forest Park. U may be possible, but is suit probable tnat a branch will eventually run into St. Louis by that route: but the Central Missouri is to be a new through route to Kansas City and its main line will cross tbe river at Alton, Every thing indicate* that there will be a concentration here of the anti Gould roads now entering Bast St.Louis Tnestt roads oanu'it aff »rd to wait for the building of the Merchant*' Bi- change bridge. That structure, as chartered, is a high bridge and will require years of time 'and millions of muuey to complete. The ouly escape the outside roads have from the grip of the Guild monopoly u to make tiattto agreements with the O<mtral ,Mi«oim aud cross their through freight over thv Alton bridge, fnw id the logic of tbe situation. We do not .wondur that tbe Si. Louu papers bate to admit it, but that does not exomo tbeir deliberate misrepresentations. In addition to this view of the situation Col. H trward, the projector of tbe enterprise, told M\ Pbinney yesterday, pouUvely, thut the Alton bridge would bo built. The f.tot is the Alton bridge it fie key to Inn entire scheme. If mat were abandonud inn bottom would tall out of the whole enterprise. At preteni the Beo Llnu dodgos tbe Gould bridge on through freight, by its trans- fur symom witb tbe C. it A. at this point. Ic mm intends co dod^u tde Gmld bridge by building a road of it» own anil pooUotin^ the lolls that h vj Ueretoforu been bar rested between Alton and Kaunas City by the C. A A.
