previously given, a large number ol those in
terested in the construction of the Tyrone nd
Clearfield Railroad, met at the Court House,
la this place, on Wednesday evening, Feb. 20,
1S55. The meeting was organized by appoint
ing lion. J. P. Hon, President ; Ellis Irwin,
John Fatchin and J. B. Graham, Vice Presi
dents; and D. W. Moore and S. B. Row, Sec
retaries. 9n motion, W. A. "Wallace, Esqr.,
as called upon to address the meeting in ex
planation of its object. He remarked that he
was a railroad man, would do his best to ad
Vance tlys cnterprize, but was not prepared to
make a speech, and left the floor by calling
upon Judge Hale, who rose and said he would
make as short a speech as Mr. Wallace had ;
that he had addressed the last meeting hero
on the subject; that enough speeches had been
mads, and that it was now time - to work, and
not to talk. He further remarked that there
"was but a few shares of additional stock need,
nd only some six thousand dollars to secure
the charter, and he thought it would bo a great
sbanic for the people of Clearfield county, con.
eidering their great wealth, and their direct in
terest in the construction of this road, if they
weuld allow it to languish for the want of the
few shares yet required to be taken. On mo
tion, ilr.Crans and SIr.Boynton were appoint
ed a committee to solicit subscriptions, who
shortly after made report that they had ob
tained forty shares 2,000 Ai Fitch, of Jer
sey City, having led off with 30 shares. When
this result was announced, leaving but some
54,000 lacking, Messrs. Boyntoa, Graham,
Leonard, J. Patchin, G. L. Kecd, W. A. Wal
lace and A. K. Wright, set to work and imme
diately subscribed, collectively, $3,000 which
made, la all, $8,000. This happy consumma
tion gave general satisfaction to all present,
and on motion the meeting adjourned.
