No more valuable project for increasing Alton's commercial facilities is at present (offered than wonld be the extension of, tho St. Louis & Central Illinois railroad from Elsah to Alton. The distance is only twelve miles. By building tbl, gap the directors of the road would materially shorten the river route to St. Lonis, V» the transfer of freight and passengers could then be made to the Hudson at this point. The new road would also secure important connections, by the C. & A. and I. & St. L. road, for all carload lots to St. Lonis. The quarries between here and Grafton will prove a mine of wealth in the future to any company that builds ft road from here to Elsah. As there is practically only room for one road to build under the blnffs.the company that first covers the ground will win the bonanza. The extension that we speak of would shorten the time by the new route from St. Louis to Elsah, Jerseyville and Springfield by at least one hour and make the road tMt much mors desirable to the traveling public. Further, the extension should be built because the river is closed from two to three months in tho year and the pres« ent arrangement is not then available, but the railroad connections here would enable the new company to maintain close communication with St. Louis for its freight and passenger business during tho suspension of • navigation. Under the present arrangement the southern outlet of the St. L. & C. I. will be blocked every winter as long as the river is closed. If the proposed Calhoun county branch of tho road is built the neces' ity of an outlet south from Elaah will be Increased. The new managers of the St. L- & C. I. are full ef life and enterprise, and we trust they will visit Alton and inspect the business advantages that would result to them from making the extension from Elsah to this city. LITERARY AND MUSICAL.—A large, appreciativn audience*, last evening, attended a literary sociable at the C. P. church. The following pleasing pro- gramme was rendered: Anthem; prayer, Rev. A. L. Barr; organ, flute, violin, cornet music, Mias Leila Murphy, Messrs. H. T. Wheelook, Harry Starr, W. A. Murphy; readings, "The Inventor's wife," "A Thanksgiving Growl," Ruv. W. C. Logan; vocal duet, "TwolMerryGiilV'Gtowr, Misses Addie and Fannie Hamilton, Miss Bessie Hubbell at the organ; for an encore another beautiful song was given; instrumental quartette, vocal quartette, "Come Whore the Llllles Bloom," (Thompson), Misses Blanche Murphy, Annie Harris, Messrs. J. G. Quieley, Wm. Hubbell. In answer to a recall a par- Ual repetition of the song was given. The • 'Colored Band" WBH given as a closing number. Uase Bull Information Wanted! StlUor Alton Ttltgraph: While every little town and village is busy forming a base ball nine to repre- aunt its citizens' interest In the national game, we hear nothing from Alton. Not a few are anxious to hear what Messrs. Farley & Co. are doing; whether they are doing anything; or whether the whole thing is'to go by default. I have heard it tmld that no regular nine will bo engaged, but that i ho park will depend jipon scrub nines. I can not bnliovu so foolish u thing will bo donn. Nothing short of a good nine will suit Altomana -any kind ol a picked nine will not be tolerated or paironizud. You can glue tltit on your eye-glau: If the managers of thu Alton 1'urk wan), tu Hveui'o the good patronage obtained last season they have got to hostir themselves KI get good players; for, if tliu iiiipors speak correctly, the cream of til. Louis players nro nil being gobbled tip, and it will take tall scratching and line huHtllng to get as good a toiim ai we hud luiit year. This spring the entire park should be rolled and the hole? tilled and made smooth. Are wo dead for bast) ball this season or noiP Did all the interest escape to Wichita f DIAMOND. The Gtofc*..Dem<»rat In lit report of yoiterdtj's meetiig, after giving the result of tho eleotloa of officers, sayai > A resolution was adopted authorizing tho Issue ot bonds and placing of a mortgage, the amount of which will be decided upon by the Executive commit' tee and submitted to tho board for approval at a meeting to be held in St. Loulg next week. Work will be commenced on the new road about March 1, but It has not as yet been fully decided where the start will be made. It is stated on good authority that the Directors of tho Central Missouri are negotiating with tho Merchants' Bridge Directors for an arrangement by which that road will take a financial interest in the construction of the new bridge, aud that the only point unsettled is that of terminal facilities m North St. Louis. If tho - Central Missouri can be assured of ample accommodations there the St. Louis end of the line will bo constructed first, in connection with the Merchants* bridge and the Alton Brannh will be considered afterward. It Is also stated that the Directors of the bridge company have been assured that the noceseaiy cash will be forthcoming with which to inaugurate work on the new bridge at the same time that construction of the new road is commenced, provided that the terminal question Is satisfactorily settled. Some definite action upon this matter will be taken at the meeting to be held in in St. Louis next week, when the Central Missouri Executive Committee will roport progress. At the same meeting the name of the company will changed in order • to incorporate luto it St. Louis. Among the new titles proposed are St. Louis and Central Missouri and St. Louis and Kansas City Short Line, either of which is considered more appropnate than the present name. At yesterday's meeting a committee of St. Charles citizens appeared before t he Directors and guaranteed $10,000 from that place to be used in securing right of way. The only report made by the St. Louis Republican this morning on the Central Missouri meeting was to give the names of • the officers elected, and this sentence: "The Executive commit* tee was empowered to make contract* and to proceed with the construction of the roads." The Post+Dtspaich says of the meeting: The Executive Committee was empowered to make contracts and to proceed with the construction of the roads. A meeting will be hold next week to approve the mortgage bonds, and work, it 18 claimed, will be commenced March 1. Mayor flackman of St. Charles, and Messrs. Haigler and Stonebraker of the same place wore before the directors and guaranteed $10,000 for the road, thus securing the right of way at that point. There is little doubt that the road will first be built to Alton and that the beginning of construction will be made there. The Post"Dispatch is the only paper in St. Louis that has shown any disposition to tell the truth about this now enterprise. It has i he honesty to admit that the river will be bridged here and construe- lion commence at this point. The Globe-Democrats talk about the Merchants' Exchange bridge and a western entrance to St. Louis is all wind. The Merchants' bridge won't be built for four or five years, if ever, and until dial is done the Central Missouri would have no objoct in seeking a western entrance to St. Louig. OHIIBOH NOTICKS.
