R . informing him that a Now York capital-* 1st .would accompany the oflloero of the road on a tour of inspection today, and inviting tho Mayor and other citizens to join the party and go through to Springfield. Mr. Fisher added; "This will give your people an excellent opportunity to get acquaintad with the resources of this part of the State, which, with the extension of our line to Alton, will bo of more than former interest to them." In accordance with this notification a meeting of citizens was hold at Mr. Milnor's store this morning, and a Reception committee consisting of Messrs. L. Pfeiffenberger, Geo. R. Hewitt, H. R. Phinnoy, J, H. Raible and C. W. Milnor was appointed to meet the visitors on the arrival of the Hudson at 11:30 o'clock. Aldnraen Hewitt and Roper, Messrs. H. Watson and Geo. D. Hayden wore appointed a committee to accompany the visitors to Grafton, and probably, to Springfield, to confer with them In regard to extending the road to Alton. Accordingly,on the arrival of the Hudson, Mayor M'Pike and the committee named, together with other citizens, repaired to the landing and met President Hames and General Manager Fisher, of the St. Louis and Central Illinois railroad, and also Mr. F.
