Meigs Elevated Railway News
Proposed Amendment to the J. V. Meigs Bill.
"The House assembled at 2 p.m., Speaker Noyes in the chair. Mr. Reed of Taunton gave notice that he will move to amend the Joe V. Meigs elevated railroad bill, which authorizes any railroad corporation now organized to build, maintain and operate an elevated railway with such gauge of tracks and elevation as the railroad commissioners may determine. The bill also authorizes the organization of corporations to build elevated railways, the location of tracks, gauge, etc., to be left to the mayor and aldermen of cities and selectmen of towns."
