He also lobbied unsuccessfully for a Houston-New Orleans railroad as a "military necessity."   & took a bold stand and presented a petition to the House for a special act to allow Peter Allen, a free black barber who had fought for the Confederate Army at Shiloh, to reside in the state.   Cone was defeated, and Allen was not allowed to remain free.
