Special Dispatch to the Enquirer.
MCARTHUR, O., February 28. - A
meeting will be held at this place to morrow night for the
purpose of providing means for completing that portion of
the Gallipolis, McArthur and Columbus Railroad between
Vinton Station and the M. and C. Railroad and Stern's Grove,
five miles north of this town, where the proposed road will
intersect a proposed road from Urbana and Circleville.
Should this portion of the road be completed by our citizens
it is believed that the Gallipolis people will complete that
portion of the road between Vinton Station and the Ohio
River. This road runs through the richest mineral
region in the State.
