9ySarrison’s Resolution to Advertise
'■Jh.o Property for Sale or to Lease Ta-
by a Vote of 86 to 28—Huff Pro
~W poses a Supervisor.
Atlanta, C)a., Oct. 3.—ln the Senate to
day the motion to reconsider the bill to es
tablish a dispensary of alcoholic and malt
liquors for medicinal and sacramental pur
poses at the county seat in local option coun
ties was tabled.
The bill to amend the special liquor law
in Pike county was, after some discussion,
Mr. Jackson, of the Thirty-seventh dis
trict, introduced a resolution for the ap
pointment of a committee to arrange for a
monument jfor the Indian Chief Mclntosh.
The resolution was referred.
The following bills jiassed:
To establish a Board of Commissioners
for Spalding county.
To incorporate the Georgia Fire Insurance
Company, of LaG range.
To incorporate the Augusta and White-
To authorize the trustees of the Second
Presbyterian church, of Columbus, to sell

To require the Commissioners of Camp
bell county to build a justice court house in
each militia district.
In the House.
In the House to-day the special order was
the Harrison resolution to sell or lease the
Western and Atlantic railroad. Mr. Huff
resumed his argument. He read Senator
Brown's letter addressed to % the Governor
and commented on the gratuitous advice
given, after w hich he read Senator Brown's
second communication, addressed to the
Gov. Brown having failed to get any re
sponse to his first communication from the
Governor of the State or from the Legis
lature, then makes another effort to get
an answerjin some way from someone. He
so far nas tailed. The legislature
in his opinion did not need to advertise its
property. Gov. Brown has saved the State
that expense. He said there was not a mil
road syndicate in the country that would
least* the property with Senator Brown’s
claim hanging over it. Mr. Huff then said:
“Mr. Speaker, my position on this queston
is clean cut. If 1 can help it the lessees shall
a cent for any permanent tixturos
now on the road. The supervisor of the
Western and Atlantic railroad tells us that
the tonnage of the road is twice as heavy as
it ever was.”
Mr. Anderson, General Superintendent of
the road, said the average age of tiie steel
rail now on the road is eight years, and that
the rails now there will not last twelve
A STATE AGENT.
Authorize the Governor to employ a good
man at $2,000 a year, and let him protect
every rail and every piece of property on
the road, and not allow the lessees to remove
a dollar’s worth of property. It will be
money well spent, much better than ad
vertising the property in the papers, which
will depreciate the property. Do not let
them move a shingle from a roof or a rail
from the track. It is contrary to
business principles to advertise a piece
of property for sale with a
lot of complications hanging over it. Gov.
Brown says that he will wreck it, and he
means just what he says. The State road
in my opinion, is worth *7,500,000. It may
be worth more. I am not as extravagant
as some people are about the value of this
property. Fred Wolf told him that there
was no reason why Georgia should not float
as many bonds as she wanted to at 4 per
cent, just as long as she owned the Western
and Atlantic railroad.
The report gotten up by the committee,
of which Mr. Watt, of Stewart, is chair
man, tells us that there is now $1,500,000
worth of surplus property lying along the
line of road between Atlanta and Chatta
nooga. If Georgia will just sit steady and
get possession of this property, I want to
put Senator Brown in his hole just one time.
It made him sick to hear tteople say that
there was only one man in Georgia who had
sense enough to run a railroad, or manage
the convicts of the State. If the gentleman
from Dougherty, the gentleman from tjuit
inan, and the other gentlemen who favor this
resolution do not want to sell the road why
do they want to 'nonkey with the buz saw.
If Gov. Brown is as bad a man as some
people say he is he ought to be taken by the
back of the neck and thrown out of the
management of the railroad. The gentle
man from Dougherty says that when Gov.
Brown comes to the front they all run to
their holes. He wants the young men who
would be in politics for years to come to
show tlieir manhood by making Senator
Brown take to the hole just one time.

Som* oranges are being shipped from the
Beecher point grove. Shipping such fruit
hurts the market, as they are drops, and
hence not fit to go on the market, feeing a

Prohibitionists and those ou the other
side are having it hot in Putnam county.
It is thought the anfi’s will win the day.
'tit seems hard work to get a quarter of
the registered voters to sign the petition for
an election, as there are no saloons in the
county outside of Palatka. Absentees are
beginning to show up, and in another month
many will be back.
Oranges are turning a little, and generally
are earner than usu I, but will yield only a
light crop. Good rains of late have improved
things much. Drayton Island people are
going into gardening heavy and will, no
doubt, make it pay well, and offset the light
crop of oranges there. A variety of pur
suits can be profitably followed there.
CHARLESTON A WINNER.
Memphis Beaten by Two Runs—The
Crowd Better Behaved.
Charleston, 8. C., Oct. B.—There was
much improvement in the game with Mem
phis to-day. The two Smiths opposed each
other in the box and the umpiring was
fairly even. There were a few shady de
cisions, but they were equally divided. Both
the club and the community insist on a
square deal, and even the bleaching boards’
crowd was on its good behavior. The
feature of the game, which was closely con
tested, was Black’s home run, which elicited
the hearty applause of the audience. An
other feature was tho fact that but a single
phantom was allowed in the entire game.

THE MORNING NEWS: TUESDAY. OCTOBER 4, 1887.
THE SCOT3 WILL TRY AGAIN.
j A New Challenger for the Cup—Charles
Sweet, of New York, Will Build a
/•Vein the Sew Yor!: V . il i
“When we fell we aye gat up again, and
sae will we yet.” No sooner had the Thistle’s
defeat become an historical fact than tho
prospect of anew challenge from Scotland
began to be talked about, first as a possi
bility, secondly as a probability, thirdly as
a certainty. There is no longer any doubt
that there will be another Scottish Richard
in the field next,year, I Ate last night it be
came generally known among members of
the New York Club that Charles Sweet had
resigned from it in order to bo able to chal
lange for the cup. and that lie had already
given Secretary Bird a preliminary notice
of his intention, similar to what the unsuc
cessful Scottish syndicate gave last year.
Mr. Sweet is a marine lawyer of consid
erable repute on both sides of the Atlantic.
He has offices in this city at No. 15 Broad
street, and in 1/union, and he personally
practices and spends most of his time in
New York, where he boarded at the Hotel
Slielburn, at Thirty-sixth street and Fifth
avenue. In Britain his business is known
as that of “Admiralty lawyer.” He
has had a successful legal career, and is a
man of considerable means, who, first
adopting yachting as a recreation, became
known far und wide in yachting circles as
the owner of the whilom invincible twenty
ton cutter Clara.
THE NEW CHALLENGER AN AYR MAN.
Mr. Sweet is a Scotchman, hailing from
the town of Ayr, in the land of Burns, and
sung of by the Scotch poet as
“Auld Ayr, whom ne'r a to'un surpasses.
For honest men and bonnie lasses.”
Though he has considerable American in
terests he has not become naturalized, and
in addition to being until this contingency
a member of the New York Yacht Club, lie
is on the roster of the Royal Thames, Royal
Northern, and Royal Clyde yacht c übs. He
was until the force of circumstances led to
heterodoxy, a true believer in the Thistle,
and one of her most enthusiastic supporters.
He told his friends in the New York Yacht
Club that they “would have the pleasure of
seeing her stern every time she raced,” and
the, measure of his disappointment can there
fore be gauged by the measure of his fer
vor. Rut as soon as he saw that his hopes
were not to be realized in his favorite, he
conceived the idea of himself becoming
Scotland’s champion, and challenging for
the America's cup.
MR. FYKE WILL RE THE DESIGNER.
The notice he gave Secretary Bird stated
his intention of building a cutter to com
pete next year. The man whom he natur
ally has chosen to design h r is the designer
of the successful Clara, William Fyfe, Jr,
of Fairlie, Scotland, who is now in this
country and sailed on the Thistle in her
races. It is probable, though it is not yet
quite certain, that tho new cutter will be a
second class one, and in her lines be an am
plification of the Clara. There are manv
reasons for hoping for success from such a
design, not the least important being that
the Clara is able to carry more
sail in proiiortion to her displacement
than any known cutter. .Of course
a deaison on Mr. Sweet’s part to
have a second class cutter will put the Vol
unteer out of the question as a defender of
the cup. At least, the entry of a boat ><?4'
her size against one of such a size as say the
Titania, while not debarred, is scarcely
feasible and would be the cause of infinite
adverse comment in yachting circles. Ac
cording to the conditions under which the
cup is sailed for any boat over thirty tons
is eligible. For the new contestant forty
tons is the probable size.
The finding of a suitable boat to meet
her is, therefore, a matter of intense inter
est among yachtsmen, and after the nine
days’ wonder of the new challenge has
ceased, surmise on this point will not un
likely give place to fact.
WHAT A NEW YORK CU B MEMBER SAID.
A member of the New York Yacht Club,
in talking tho matter over with a Tribune
reporter, commended Mr. Sweet’s discretion
in proposing to have a boat of the second
“Mr. SweeMs Scotch enough, and there
fore shrewd enough," he remarked, “to see
where his best opportunity of victory lies.
He knows that our second-class sloops are
not all that they ought to be.”
“What about the Papoose<” remarked a
“There may be a chance now of letting
her have a show of her qualities.”
Among the “Hying rumors” last night
was one that mentioned the name of Oliver
Iselin, of t he Titania as a probable owner of
the cup defender against Mr. Sweet’s cutter.
A few' days ago a paragraph appeared stat
ing that Mr. iselin w-isiied to dispose of the
Titania and build another second-class
sloop; and if the now second-class sloop
turns out anything good it may stand a
first-rate chance of meeting the Fyfe-de
GEN. PAINE DOES NOT KNOW WHAT HE
Gen. Paine was seen at the rooms of the
New York Yacht Club just before be left
them in order to catch tho 10:50 train for
Boston. He was asked if he had heard any
thing of the new challenge, and replied in
the negativ e.
“Would you build a boat to meet the cut
ter talked off” was next asked.
“That is a question for the future,” he
replied in his usual quiet manner.
Mr, Sweet’s resignation from the New
York Yacht Club, it is well to note, is not a
necessity because of his intention to com
pete. The fact of his being a member of
that club does uot debar him. as a meiniier
of the British clubs with which he is con
nected from challenging for the cup, but, he
has considered that to resign, at least tem
porarily, is best both as a matter of cour
tesy and expediency The new cutter will
lie built of steel, so that she tuny carry the
necessary weight of lead in her keel. In
wooden boats a heavily weighted ki>el is apt
to spring the timbers, as was the case with
the Atlantic, which leaked oil hat account.
Fairlie, Mr. Fyfe’s birthplace, is only
about tftirty miles from Ayr, and until a
few years ago his father, the well-known
yacht builder, had a yacht and pleasure
boat building plaee at Ayr.
CAPTAIN BARK WILL SAIL THE NEW YACHT.
Tbe skipper of the new yacht w ill be
Capt. Barr, who sailed the Thistle, and who
made his reputation during the time he held
the tiller of the Clara.
_ It may be mentione 1 that the Titania and
Shamrock whose sailing qualities are so
nearly alike, that after re pc ited trials the
question of sliced supremacy has not yet
been satisfactorily settled—were originally
built to defend the cup in ease of a challenge
by a second-class cabin cutter.

The use of iron and steel in place of wood
in the construction of railway car bodies is
urged now and then in this country, and has
been employed to some extent in countries
where the climate Is unfavorable to the
preservation of wood. An English com

cars for one of the railways in India, and
another manufacturer is building 300 simi
lar cars for another road in that country.
English roads do the major portions of
their carting, collecting and delivering
freight at the freighters’ doors. One of the
largest companies, the Midland, have in
constant employment no fewer than 3,200
horses; and of these 1,000 are located in
London. Some of these horses are, how
ever, employed in switching cars, at which
business a heavy horse weighing about 2,000
pounds can do good service. They soon be
come very expert, and start the car by
standing with the trace chain slack, and
then, without moving tlieir feet, throw
their shoulders forward, when their weight
starts the ear. They also learn to judge
when the car has acquired sufficient speed,
and step aside without a word of command,
letting the cars come gently togteher.
Economy In Print.
The difference in cost between 1,000 signs
reading “Look out for the locomotive” and
the same number reading “Danger!” is SOOO.
and it has been found that the latter are
more effective. The Railway Age
suggests some further speculation in con
nection with the paint business. There are
about 000,000 railway cars in the United
States and over 20,000 locomotives. On a
large share of these are painted in large lot
ters with a liberal display of periods, the
emblem "R. R.” or “Ry.” and in many cases
the words “Railroad” and “Railway” are
laboriously spelled out in full. Supposing
it costs, at a moderate average, 10c. to paint
each of the cars or engines with these super
fluous letters. Thun if 920,000 were so
painted it would mean a cost of $92,000
which could be saved by dispensing with the
Thomasville and Florida Railroads.
"The Monticello (Fla.) Constitution says:
“We presume the engineering corps of the
Plant Investment Company, is not at work
south of the State boundary line, making a
l>eriiianent survey and location of a route
of a railway, the Thomasville and Monti
cello line, w'hereby we can have a speedy
outlet to the great avenues of trade and
commerce. This survey will be completed
in a very few days, and then an estimate of
the cost will be furnished, and if it is within
the bounds of reason, and does not very
greatly exceed the contributions already
subscribed, we shall proceed to urge the
contribution of any excis deficient. In
said event, the road can and will be built
and utilized by next spring.”
The same papper says: The Thomasville
and Tallahassee railroad has located its
passenger depot in the Long Grove addition
to Tallahassee on the extension of Monroe
street. The engineer corps has been several
i lays trying to find the least, expensive line
from where the depot of the Thomasville
and Tallahassee railroad will be located at
the north end of Monroe street to the depot
of the Florida Railway and Navigation.
