The chancellor's findings : have to be the findings of s jury before ’they become Iser. The victory for the plaintiff company and its nttorn ys. j ! however. Is clear cot. The ruling «f I the chancellor will shew, when placed ;nn file, that In his Judgement the : defendant road has violated Its cove, nants and duties and ha* md managed jibe plaintiff read truly and well as un 'der a partnership. Of course, even with a permanent receiver the case Is not ended. The chancellor ha* said that In tils Judg ment the lessee road has not lived up to !ta covenants. Thedlsputed questlonp of fact. ,as stated, must go to a Jury, on | regular trial, and the case may then go Ito the higher courts. But, as far as thp necessary preliminary steps In the rase are concerned, th" plaintiff road ’and counsel has won out. The find ing of the chancellor, cf course, was 'the Imporlrnt step In i»je proceedings. It i» the opinion of the bench of the testimony adduced. The Suit. In March. 1897. Mr. James U. Jack son. president of the August South ern. v >nt on to New York and effected a lease of the property to the South Carolina and Georgia through Presi dent Parsons, of the latter road. In July last the Augusta Southern fi'cd a rettticntoßbrogateand annul the j jle3se, alleging that the South Carolina land Georgia road, for purposes of Its own. was permitting the locomotives. ! rolling stock and other property of the | plaintiffs to deteriorate and become j useless, asking at the same time for the | appointment of a temporary receiver j The court appointed James U. Jackson i and Ahg. 4 was set for the time for the hearing of the case. On the morning of the 4th the bar in rloeure cf the court house was filled with a most Imposing and eminent ar ray of legal talent and high railway officials. For the petitioners there ap peared the fton. Boykin Wright and the Hon. Joseph R. Lamar. For the interests of the defendant road, there appeared Messrs. J. B. and B. Gumming, associated with Mr. Tay lor, of the New York law firm of Horn blower, Blerne, Miller and Tay lor.. On the latter's side of the enclosure there sat Mr. Hertry Parsons, tr -asuree cf the South Carolina and Georgia; Mr. J. H. Sands, general Manager; L A. Emerson, traffic manager, and F. A.

Gumming began the argument for the defense, cositendlng that the rela- 1 lionship between the two roads was not a partnership one, but that of land lord and tenant. That no receiver should be appointed unless entire dia aotulioQ *vas desired and insolvency shown. In the present case there were no creditors and no Insolvency. The distinguished attorney for the South Crrolina and Georgia continued !n his address up to the recess hour, bringing to Irar upon the oppoaitlon h!s strongest ballerina of logic, author ities In support of his contention, sar casm, rallleiy and eloquence. MaJ. Cumming was folowed by Mr. Tnylor, of New York, and then Mr. !.a mir arose for the cone'uding argument for the plaintiff*. Ak to Mr. Lamar's speecn, ty those fortunate enough to hear the seme on that hot afternoon in the big court room, It wos considered a mas terpiece. The "descendant of a long line of eminent ancestors, so thoroughly and ably versed in English jurisprudence” —■ ns Mr. Lamar was courteously designated by Muj. Cumming—was at his best, and that is about perfection. Ills words and expressions were at Ills tongue's end reedy for Instant use; his contend cf language >vaa superb; his logic and deductions wore udanswer able. and. taken all In all, Mr. Lamar’s speech was at able, eloquent and pow erful an effort as has been heard In Richmond superior court in many u year. The decision will be filed some day next week. WINNIE DAVIS DYINC. Sad News That Is Recived in Atlanta 1 Today.

He has secured one thing he I came for. and that was rest. Sb far 1 there has been only one worry for the i President since he came to Cleveland. The Treaty Commission. There Is rcaion to think the treaty I |commission Is not complete. Justice. White's visit to the President last ev- L-ning started ripples of international ad'alrs across the President's peaceful vacation. Are They In Conflict? Th" Justice came to Cleveland es pecially to call on the President, and they were doscicd together long enough to give the Idea that they were net entirely ag»«ed in their views of the metier under consideration. There has been a doubt ever since the Presi dent named him as one of the commis sioners whether Justice White wou'd serve. In Consultation Again. The President and Secretary Day were aguin In consultation again this morning. The President will go di rectly from Canton to New York and Camp Wikoff, where he will arrive on Saturday. It is not probably Senator Hanna will meet Major McKinley dur ing the visit of the chief executive in Cleveland. Wires to Hanna. Hanna Is en route from the North west .but will not reach here before tomorrow evening. Major MciKnley lias telegraphed Hanna telling him not to alter or shorten bis trip In order to get heme before his departure. ALL/VERY ILL. of Sick Soldiers Arriving IToday. New York, Sopt.

Any man who knew thnt army and knew the work accessary in breaking catpp. knew that ii was physically im possible to carry out such an order. K«vw of (be men were able to walk a mile, much lea* carry a guu, and still less to move their baggage. Sternberg and Alger were working on a 'beery— vie were face to face with a condi tion. Shatter wanted «o send the troop* home. But here was an order from Washington. So hr asked hla com manders lo meet. The meeting was held on August 3rd. The Meeting Called. Each commander brought hi* divis ion surgeon and his regimental sur geons. Just as 'he meeting was held, down catr.e another wider from Alger. Tho scheme for breaking camp each day, burning and Isolating, had been abandoned. The pew order was to tiansfer the entire army to San Luis, 25 or 30 miles away, on a line of rail road e/llhouf facilities. It would liave taken two months or more to do this, and San Luis was a worse fever ho ffi than Santiago. So when Grin. Shatter read this latest ordef to that meeting, there was an outburst of indignation. All agreed It was neccssafy to send the troops home unless their lives were to be sacri ficed. The Advice Given Them "If I were you, General Shatter, I would absolutely ignore those ordeis from Washington,” declared General Batea emphatically. "I would put those men on the transports and send them back to the United States. Then I r/ould let those people at Washington deal with us afterward.” "I hope you will telegraph those men at Washington that anyone who keeps cur troops here is guilty of murder,” said Col. Roosevelt. "I am going to send a telegram to the effect that if the army Ib kept here, we will take nothing back but mortu'# ary reports.” said General Shatter. Then'Roosevelt asked General Shatter If he would not like to have the opin ions of bis officers in writing, and this resulted in the so called "Round Rob in.” , j| A Dangerous Chimney. Lieut.
