War did not the incorporators ot the •Alton Electric Light and Steam Heating Co." visit Alton and inquire into the practicability of their scheme, and the amount of patronage it would probably reoeive» before making a proposition to light and heat the cityP Why was this very ordinary precaution neglected? Can any Aldermen teUP President Hartman and General Man* ager Fisher, of the St. Louis & Central Illinois railroad, were in town today on business connected with their company, and for the purpose of ascertaining the feeling of our citizens with reference to the extension of their road from Elsafa to this city. Under the escort of Capt. Tatum and Capt. Bruner they called upon quite a number of our business men, explained the object and aims of their company with reference both to their packet line and the road in general. They expressed their wish to extend the road from Elsah to Alton and then connect with St. l,onis by steamer. Of course they could only speak m general terms of their plans, as tber have not yet surveyed the proposed route, but they will be back here next week, go ov«r the route, have a survey made and will then be able to state definitely what they will do.. They were much pleased with their reception by our citiaens and the friendly interest manifested in their enterprise. Thev expressed their appreciation of the importance of the extension to the success of the road, and stated that the peo- pie of Calhoun county were also anxious to have the road extended to Alton in order to assure them an outlet for their products in winter. The officials made a good impression on our business men, and showed that they were in earnest in desiring to make the extension. The importance of the new road to Alton can hardly be overestimated and we have no doubt that if our citizens co-operate with the company the extension can be secured within three or four months. This road and the Central Missouri will double Alton's shipping facilities and open new > and valuable territory to our merchants and manufacturers. The two new railroads added to those we now have would make Alton the best railroad town in the State, outside of Chicago, and the river facilities added present advantages that couW but attract new enterprises of every-desonp. tlon.
