ATKINSON IN NEW FIELD
-------
Starts Negotiations for Purchase of Montgomery Street Railway
-------
Montgomery, Ala., May 6. H. M. Atkinson, of Atlanta; G. H. Davis, general manager of the Birmingham street car systems, and J. A. Emery, superintendent of construction of the same system, spent yesterday in Montgomery. As a result negotiations are well under way for the purchase of the Montgomery street railroad.
Atkinson and Davis went to Birmingham last night, but Emery remained over and is making a careful examination of the property. The deal is being negotiated by President A. M. Baldwin, of the First National bank, who gave a dining at which all parties interested sat down together.
Mr. Emery was seen in consultation with General Manager Scott, of the local company, but made no statement further than to admit that negotiations are under way.
W. A. Vandiver in an interview says that if the deal is put through it will make no difference with the construction of the new system which is now under way.
Report has it that a part of the Atkinson deal here is the purchase of one of the Montgomery papers or the starting of a new afternoon daily.
