2 ifo HE WATCHED. /rE To prevent him from /WRECKING ITS ROAD. 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, defeated. 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- Plains railroad. To authorize the trustees of the Second Presbyterian church, of Columbus, to sell certain lands. Toauthorize the trustees of the Congrega tion B'nai Israel, of Columbus, to sell cer tain lands 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 “Constitution." 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 months. 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. SURPLUS PROPERTY. 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. Tho resolution was tabled by a vote of 80 to 20. NEW BILLS. The following new matter was intro duced : By Mr. Harrell, of Decatur—A bill to make the Sheriff of Decatur county ex officio sheriff of the county. By Mr. Terrell, of Meriwether—A bill to Srovide for the registration of voters of lenwether. By Mr. Griffith, of Oconee—A bill to amend the constitution so as to provide for the passage of bills after the second read ing. Mr. Huff, of Bibb, introduced the follow ing resolution, which was referred to the Finance Committee: Jbat the. Governor be, and he Is here by norized. and directed to appoint a com petent railroad supervisor, whose duty and business it shall bo to commence at once, ami guard and watch carefully, and constantly tin* management of tho Western and Atlantic rail road, m so far as said management may relate to the keeping of said roadbed, and all of the buildings,, and appurtenances of every kind belonging to said railroad in the same good order and condition in which it may, and should now Is* found. Said Supervisor shall be required to give prompt notice to the Gover nor of any failure upon the |>art of the present lessees to keep the said railroad, with all of its equipments and appurtenances in the same good order and condition fur the next three years, oruutil tho end of the present lease. The salary of the supervisor shall be fixed by the Governor at a price not to exceed the sum of $2,000 tier annum, and to lie paid quar terly, os other salaried officers of the Stab* are paid If at any time during the next three years the present lessees shall be found doing anything which, ill the opinion of the State Hui>erintendent would in any wav change alter, damage or depreciate the present good condition or value of the road, its rolling stock, buildings or bridges, then the government is hereby authorized and directed to seize and take immediate charge and control of said Western and Atlantic railroad and proceed to operate and manage the same to the best in terest of the state until the meeting of the next succeeding General Assembly. Resolved further, That the matter of liettcr meats, which is now open between the State of G< torgia and the lessees of the Western ami At lantic Railroad company, should never lie settled by the payment of any money l>y the State to the lessees, but should the lessees have at the expiration of their lease any personal property, in the shape of l olling stock which does not in the final settlement of nil accounts belong to the State, then and in that event the said lessees will have the right to remove the same, but under no circumstances will the State ever pay or offer to pay one dollar for any permanent improvements or fixtures which have been made by the lessees on said road-bed, or the property In general. A resolution for the relief of James 11. Tootle, a maimed Confederate soldier of Montgomery, was passed. A communication was read from the management of tile Piedmont Exposition luviting the General Assembly to attend the opening exercises on Monday next at 1 o'clock. A resolution for tho relief of John B. Polk, of the county of Irwin, was passed. Mr. Pittman announced with much feel ie*- the d'*.|t'i of \f f . H irt. of T-imn ->n I ' asked for the appointment of a committee i of three to draft appropriate resolutions. ; Asa further mark of respect the House j adjourned. STATE CAPITAL SIFTINGS. ' Arguments in Progress in tho Convict Investigation. Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 3. —The morning and afternoon session of the convict lease in vestigation court was occupied by A. H. Cox in an argument for Penitentiary Com pany No. 2. There are four arguments yet to bo made, and an understanding has been reached that those will tie concluded Wednes day evening, if possible. The United States Circuit and District Courts met to-day for the October term. The case of the Pullman Car Company vs. the Comptroller General was dismissed by consent and the injunction dissolved. This was the case where the company resisted the payment of taxes except oh receipts for business strictly within the State, the Comptroller holding them liable for all re ccipts at Georgia offices without regard to the mileage in Georgia. The recent deci sion of the United States Supreme Court iu another case, held directly opposite to the Comptroller, and on advice of the Attorney General the ease has been dismissed. A SUNDAY SCHOOL RALLY. The Fourth Semi-Annual Convention of the 27th District. Waycross, Ga., Oct. 3. —The fourth semi-annual convention of the Twenty seventh District Sunday School Association of Georgia met here Saturday, and after a harmonious session adjourned last night. The district, comprising Berrien, Charlton, Pierce, Ware and Coffee counties, was well represented. The entire district is thor oughly organized and tho statistical report shows a large increase in every department of the work. The convention was addressed by Senator Colquitt, Presi dent Reppard, Vice President Marshall and M. B. Williams, of the Young Men’s Christian Association of Atlanta. Senator ('olquitt's subject was “Religion at Home. ” H • stirred every heart with his vivid pic tures of home life in its different phases. At least 1,500 people were present. The session of tho convention was the most suc cessful ever held. The convention a ijourued to meet at Alapaha in April next. Senator Colquitt left for Atlanta on tho 10 o'clock train to-night. WAFTED FROM WELAKA. Dropped Oranges Being Shipped Bright Railroad Prospects. Welaka, Fla., Oct. 3. —Maj. Fenwick, of the P. W. and L railroad, is here, and says business will be closed in a few days and work begin without delay. The ques tion of going to Nashua and Satsuiua, or to Sisco, from vVelaka depends on the liber ality of tile people along the first named route The country through which It will go is one easy to build a road on, and the poojjle fully expect to see the iron horse by Jan. 1. 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 damage to the reputation of Florida oranges. The Welaka mattress factory is shipping some fine looking mattresses to different partsVf Florida. 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.

New Orleans, La., Oct. 3.—Widner was too much for Birmingham, and New Or leans hod no trouble in winning the game to-day. Neither side fielded brilliantly, al though Birmingham did tne best work' The locals fielded iu a happy, careless, self-confi dent sort of way. but made no costly errors until the eighth. Widner led at the Iwt and in running the liases, and fielded finely. Esterquest was hit when hits were must needed, and Stall ings’ throw ing arm was out of gear, which made stealing bases quite easy. Suck umpired a good game. Only about 40) people were present, but they gave the locals a good reception.

THE SCOT3 WILL TRY AGAIN. j A New Challenger for the Cup—Charles Sweet, of New York, Will Build a Second-Class Cutter /•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 class type. “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 bystander. “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 signed cutter. GEN. PAINE DOES NOT KNOW WHAT HE WILL DO. 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. Rome’s Ex-Salvatlonist Convicted. Rome, Ga., Oct. 3. — Henry Johnson, 21 years oid, was found guilty this afternoon in the Criminal Court of assault with intent to raire a girl aged 7 veara. He was recom mended to the mercy of the court. Johnson has been a prominent member of the Salva tion Army here, atid took an active part in tho campaign against the devil. Aimee Dead. Paris, Oct. o.- M’llo Aimee, the opera bouffe singer, died from the effects of a surgical operation in this city to-day. “Now. Qen’ral, you're posted: come, give us your views. In a brush at the front what's the powder to use?" He winked at a star as he puffed his cigar, Andslu.vly replied, "Inn brim or the front I never use powder, but -80ZODONT." Advice to Motnara.

Matters of Money and Management About Various Lines. The Louisville and Nashville railroad peo ple expect to receive thirteen of their large consolidated freight engines within a few ilays. The price of steel rails is $3 a ton lower th iu six months ago. an 1 this notwithstand ing there are likely to be 5,000,000 tons of rails wanted in 1888. While the air brake on locomotives, if properly attended to, is adequate to all or dinary requirements, some companies are beginning to apply steam driver brakes also as a further safeguard against possi ble accidents. The Boston ami Albany is one of the companies which is thus equip ping all its passenger engines. The Colorado Midland railway has pub lished a miniature four-page newspaper, each pageliaviug three columns and being about as large as a piece of chalk. It an nounces that it is issued “as a souvenir pre sented to the members of the National Edi torial Association, bv the Colorado Midland railway, on the occasion of an excursion of the association over the Pike’s Peak route,” which took place Sepr. Is. 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 pany recently secured an order for 325 iron 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 superfluity. 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. Preliminary lines wore run on each side of the city and both were found to require very heavy grading. The west side has been selected as the best. Sleeplessness. Narcotics and sedatives murder sleep; the unnatural stupor is soon followed by ill effects Simmons Liver Regulator removes the cause of restlessness and sleeplessness by regulating the bowels, by establishing good digestion and by quieting the nerves. “I have been a great sufferer from dys pepsia and loss of sleep.
