Mr. Hawkes, Chiarman of the Marietta
BDd North Georgia Railroad Investigation
Committee submitted a report and 300
copies were ordered priuted.
In the House.
In the House to-day the special order,
which was the bill providing for additional
supervision of railroads in the State, and
to render less hazardous the transportation
of persons and property, was taken up as
the continuing order of yesterday.
Mr. Jones, of Baker, offered an additional
section: “Providing that this bill shall
apply only to the Western
and Atlantic railroad.” Mr. Jones urged
the adoption of his amendment. He said
that if the purpose of the measure was to
protect the proper ty of the Western and
Atlantic railroad his amendment would
show what was intended, and make the ob
ject of the measure plain.
Mr. Olive spoke in favor of his bill. He
was opposed to the amendment offered by
Mr. Harrison, of Quitman, was against
the bill and all its amendments. His argu
ment was a defense of the lessees of the
Western and Atlantic railroad. The lessees
liad a contract with the State and should
I* left alone. Gov. Brown had paid the
l ent and would no doubt continue to do so.
His remarks had little reference to the
merits of the bill and were directed to a
general review of the condition of the prop
erty of the Weitern and Atlantic railroad,
past, present and future, and the belief that
tiie lessees would act fairly with the State.
Mr. Simmons of Sumter, thought that the
measure bad several good features. The
Commission should have the supervision of
the railroads so that the lives of the people
of Georgia would be protected. He thought
that the measure was a meritorious one,
and should pass.
Mr. Candler said that there were two ob
jects which were sought to be accomplished
by the bill. One wits to protect the lives
and property of the people of the
State, and the other was to protect the
property of the Western and Atlantic
railroad. The law now regulating
common carriers was sufficient to cover
the first object, and the second object,
which was to protect the property of the
Western and Atlantic railroad, could not
be accomplished by the bill. The bill was
an innovation upon the State’s contract with
the lessees. The bill in hisopinion was un
necessary, as the object sought to be ac
complished had already been provided for
by the Legislature.
'The amendment by Mr. Jones was lost.
Mr. Howell, of !• ulton, called the previous
question on the report of the committee,
which was favorable to the passage of the
bill, and on this Mr. Harrison, of Quitman,
asked that the yeas and nays lie recorded,
which was granted.
Mr. Berner, of Monroe, was given the
twenty minutes allowed the committee, and
devoted the time given him to advocating
the passage of the measure. He was in
favor of it, because it protected the lives
and property of the jieople of the State and
the pEO!<erty of the Western and Atlantic
railroad from being run down by the lessees.
The bill said to the corporations of the
State keep your roads in good condition.
On the passage of the bill the yeas were
97 and the nays 35.
THE HARRISON RESOLUTION.
The second special order was what was
known as the Hunison resolution providing
for advertising the property of the Western
and Atlantic railroad for sale or lease. The
resolution was reported by substitute, and
to this there was a minority rejiort pre
sented by Mr. Felton, of Bartow, providing
for advertising the property for louse.
Mr. Mathews, of Houston, favored giving
all the information that could bo gathered
going to show the extent and value of the
property. He thought that this informa
tion should be placed iti possession of the
next Legislature. He was opposed to this
Ijogislature going further than to get up in
formation for the benefit of the next Legis
Mr. Felton, of addressed the
House in advocacy of the minority report,
which provided for leasing the road only.
He was opposed to selling the road now or at
any other time, He believed that in 1 hirty
days after the adjournment of the Legisla
ture the lessees would forfeit tlio lease.
They would refuse to make a bond. In
his opinion the bond should have tieen
given long ago. If the road was
again leased he believed that the
lessees would be the Louisville and Nash
ville syndicate. The contract should be
kept up unchanged. Gov. Brown says that
the contract does not nllow anything for
tietterments. The road, in his opinion,
should be easily leased for $3>,00) per
month. He called in an earnest manner
upon the legislature to stand by the oeonlo
of the State and not do an \ thing in the
way of selling the l oad, blit keep it and
Mr. Calvin, of Richmond, said that he
wa. opposed to selling the road, also to the
substitute and the minority report n bieli
iirovided for leasing the projiertv. This
legislature should leave the road alone
until the lease expires. The State could
then take charge of the property and when
ever the'question of betterment -.was dis
jxiwd of, the question could be settled with
more satisfaction and to letter advantage to

VERY LIKE JESSE POMEROY.
A Maine Boy Burns a Seminary Be
cause the “Grub” Didn’t Suit Him.
From the Wathinejton Star.
A strange story has just been developed
in connection with the burning of the Oak
Greve Seminary building, twelve miles
from Augustu, Me. The main school build
ings were destroyed Aug. 31, and a pupil,
Stevie Jones, perished. A little more than
three weeks later the gymnasium ami sta
ble, which were being finished temporarily
to accommodate the pupils, were also
burned. I jest Friday George A. Hui ring
ton, 15 years old, who attended the school,
was arrested in Brockton Mass., for the
crime, and lias made a sworn confession to
being the incendiary, alleging as a reason
that the “grub” was poor and he was ill
used. He says,he had entertained his incendi
ary purpose for several days, ami oil the
night in question got out of bed about mid
night, and, with nothing on but his shirt,
' took a lighted lamp and proceeded down
; three llights of stairs to the basement of the
! building. Upon a beam ho found a quan
j tity of rags, which he touched oft'. Ke
' turning to bed, lie dropped fast asleep, and
j was awakened by fellow pupils when the
| building was n sheet of fiame, and lie barely
escaped with his life. Ho lost all his cloth
ing. Regardless of the fate of little Stevie
Jones, liurdly three weeks had elapsed when
one quiet Sabbath morning, as the devout
und steady-going Quakers were worshiping
in the church near by, lie touched the torch
of tiie gymnasium. He was suspected of
setting this fire, imttold a story about bath
ing in tiie river and threw elf suspicion,
but a letter to him from his guardian was
intercepted in which there was mentioned
j threats he had made to burn the seminary
I buildings. On Friday, Kept. 33, lie ran
! away from the school, which had been oon-
I tinned in a hall near by the scene of the
burning, but the detectives followed him to
Stockton, Mo., his old homo, and thence to
Brockton. The jienalty of his crime is State
prison for life. From his appearance he
would seem to Ik* a second Jesse Pomeroy,
and manifests the utmost coolness and in
difference when talking aliout his crime.

THE MORNING NEWS: FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1887.
A COSSACK KNIGHT ERRANT.
Om Aschimoff a True Soldier of
From the Xew York Timet.
St. Petersburg, Sept. 31.—Simuitane
ously with the announcement that the
Italian government is making extensive
preparations for a winter campaign in Mas
sowah comes the news of the departure
from Moscow for Abyssinia on Wednesday
last of Om Aschimoff, with a large military
and clerical following. The Russians gladly
avail themselves of the opportunity of em
barrassing Italy by giving the Negus un
official aid in the shuiie of leaders and even
men, while at the same time they are de
lighted to be able to add indirectly to the
difficulties of England with regard to Egypt.
Om Aschimoff, Hetman of some 10,000
semi-independent Cossacks, is one of the
most curious figures of contemporaneous
Russian history. Resembling in many re
spects the “Raubritter” and knights-errant
of olden times, he appears out of place and
in the light of an anachronism in the pro
saicai and matter-of-fact life of the nine
His first appearance one the scene was
some eight or nine years ago, when he ar
rived in this city at the head of a numerous
deputation of wild and semi-barbarous
looking individuals, who blindly oileyed
his every behest. They had come, he de
clared, to petition the Czar for permission
to settle in the Caucasus on the deserted
lands of those of the Tcberkess tribes which
bad emigrated to Asia Minor. In answer
to the inquiries of the government, he as
serted that he was the Hetman, or chief, of a
tribe of independent Cossacks, established
in Persia, but professing the orthodox Greek
religion and regarding the (Var as their
supreme chief. Their principal occupation,
according to his account, was that of escort
ing the caravans proceeding from Trebi
zonde and Raioum to Persia, and to protect
them against the Kurdish brigands. After
some hesitation he admitted that his tribe
was composed not only of refugees from the
Caucasus but also of vagabonds, convicts
and evildoers of every kind and of every
nationality. But us a set-off against this,
he claimed that a most severe and iron dis
cipline was maintained among the tribe;
that they elected their own officers and
chiefs: that they considered it their bounden
duty to fight, massacre and even pillage all
infidels and their belongings; that they pun
ished theft severely, and that they were de
voted to the Czar. In fact, judging by Om
Aschitnoff’s own account, his people spent
their whole existence on horseback, and
gained their livelihood at the point of the
The Russian government, after having
verified all these statements, which at first
they were inclined to disbelieve, at length
gave a reluctant and qualified consent to
the Hetman’s petition. It was decided that
an experiment should be made and that 400
of Aschimoff’s Cossacks should lie allowed
to settle for a time in the Caucasus on trial.
It is hardly necessary to add that before
they had l>een there three months the whole
surrounding country was in an uproar.
They waged a constant warfare against the
respectable inhabitants, indulged hi rapine
and pillage, and when tiie local authorities
attempted to visit their camp in order to in
stitute inquiries into their conduct, they re
ceived them with volleys of musketry
which force ! the gentlemen in uniform to
beat a hasty retreat. While prof easing the
most blind devotion for the Czar, they made
no effort to conceal their unmitigated con
tempt for all government officials, mid in
fact for every representative of authority
whom they laid not themselves eiected. At
length the Governor General of the Cau
casus, Prince Donduroff-Korsakoff, was
obliged to force them to recross the frontier
and to return to their former homes in
Aschimoff, on hearing of the measures
adopted against his followers, lost no time
in coming to this city, and used every effort
to induce the Czar t,> revoke the Governor
General’s edict. Finding that a deaf ear
was turned to all his entreaties, he left the
capital in disgust, and, accompanied by his
two favorite Lieutenants, Sastrebb and
Goff, made his way to Constantinople.
While there he was brought into contact
with members of the British embassy. After
a good deal of negotiation lie entered into
an agreement witli the military attache of
Queen Victoria’s mission, according to the
terms of which he was to return to his peo
ple, organize his warriors, and make a raid
into Turkestan for the purpose of destroy
ing the Central Asian railway, now in
course of construction by the Russian gov
ernment. It was agreed that he should be
paid a stipulated amount for every mile of
permanent way destroyed, and he experi
enced but little difficulty in obtaining from
the somewhat credulous Britishers a large
sum of money in the shape of an advance.
Within a lew days after receiving the
gold he disappeared with his two compan
ions from Constantinople, but instead of re
turning to his own tribe, as arranged with
the British inilitay attache, he turned his
footsteps toward Egypt. He was seen at
Cairo, and then he disappeared coin-
I pletely from view, nothing more being
heard of him until lie turned up about eight
een months ago in Abyssinia, at the Court
of the Negus.
According to his own account, after leav
ing Cairo lie succeeded in reaching the
Mahdi in the Soudan, mid took part in sev
eral of the encounters with the British
troops. Although we have only Aschimofifs
own version on which to rely in the matter,
there are many grounds for believing
his assertion to lie true. The British
officers, especially those of the late Sir Her
bert Stewart’s Hying column, have repeat
edly insisted that the rebel forces which
they encountered during the Soudan cam
paign w re led and organized by w hite men,
and many of the English outposts assert
having liven able to distinguish fair-haired
warriors among the enemy’s forces. As
chimoff claims to have been prosout at the
fall of Khartoum, and relates that shortly
afterward he quitted the reliel army and
made his way to Abyssinia. When asked
as to how he could have reconciled himself
to tight in the ranks of Mohammedans
against Christians he exclaimed: “What
Christians? Why, Protestants, Jesuits, and
Mohammedans me all one and the same
thing. They are all infidels and enemies of
There is much analogy between the form
of Coptic Cbristianism professed by the
Abyssiniaus and Uie Orthodox Greek rito
as practiced in Russia. Aschimoff was,
therefore, exceedingly well received by
King John, and soon contracted the firmest
kind of friendship with Uas-al-Loula, the
Abyssinian Commander-in-Chief. He
greatly assisted the latter in organizing his
army and in arranging for the defensive
and offensive measures adopted against the
Italian force at Massowan. The Cossack
chief makes no attempt to conceal the fact
tlmt something more than mere ties of
friendship bind him to the interests and
fortunes of the Negus anil of his General,
anti admits that several thousand of
his men have left their homes in Persia,
and aro now on their wav to Abyssinia.
When asked if his Cossacks were
taking their ponies with them ho replied in
the negative, saving they were merely tak
ing their guns, their saddles, and their las
soes, and tUut horses could be found every
where. AschimolT regiuds os hopeless the
situation of the Italians at Massowali. Tiie
hills and mountain passes which environ the
town on every side arc held by a well
drilled force of 40,000 hardy Abyssinian
mountaineers, commanded by tlas-nl-Liula,
and well equipped with Remington rifles.
The town of Massowah itself is one of the
most pestiferous und unhealthy s)>ots on the
whole Red Sea coast, and the Italians are
losing an enormous quantity of men by
sickness and disease.
Om Aschimoff returned to Russia about
eight months ago. lea\ing his two lieuten
ants with Ras-&1-Loula. On arriving at
Moscow he was most warmly received by
the late Editor Kutkoff, by whose assist
ance he organized the expedition which left
the southern metropolis on Wednesday last,
with the tacit consent of the Russian gov
ernment, Kutkoff was only too glad to
I avail himself of such a favorable opportun
-1 ity of extending his Panslavist propaganda.
and of harassing his arch enemies, the Eng
lish, and their allies, the Italians. Some
eight weeks back AschimofTs lieutenant,
Sastreb, arrived at Moscow from Abyssinia,
with important letters from Ras-al-Loula to
the Hetman, recommending urgency and
Om Aschimoff is a man of gigantic stat
ure and herculean strength. He w ears an
immense red beard, and has a pair of very
soft and mild blue eves. He always smiles
when he is talking and has a singularly
winning manner. M. Deroulede, the mouth
piece of the war partv in France, who met
him the other day after KatkotTs funeral,
was therefore somewhat startled when the
Cossack chief asked him in the softest and
most insinuating manner jxissibie what the
price the French government, in the event
of a conflict, would be prepared to pay for
every head of a German, and whether it
would be willing to pay down a large sum
for the head of a Prussian General.
Its History and Its Sureness-The
Farit tetter to the Epoch.
The beheading of Pranzini gives what
the French call actualite to the subject of
executions. Let us sc; how an assassin in
this country pays his debt to society. France
is, with the exception of Italy, the sole
European country that decapitates its mur
derer. Germany uses the ax only in cases
of high treason; Spain und Portugal gar
rote their assassins. Switzerland and Bel
gium have practically alxiiished the death
Without going into a scientific discussion
as to tho advantage of beheading over the

ing, the guillotine has tho precious advan
tage of being sure every time; there
are no cords to break or stretch, and
no miscalculation is ever made in the
it is a curious and not generally known
fact that tne first guillotine was constructed
after designs of a recorder at Ktrasburg, by
a certan Tobias Schmitz, manufacturer of
what is to-day considered another instru
ment of torture—the piano! Until 1873 the
guillotine had not been much improved. It
resembled the scaffold that is used in
America. A flight of steps led up to the
platform, which was surrounded by a rail
ing. Tiie idea was to ‘'let everybody see.”
Theguillotine wascalled by criminals the
Abba ye de Monte-a Hey ret. signifying that it
was an abbey which separated them from the
world and that they mounted its steps with
regret. Heindereieh, who was the heids
man in 1873, had greatly improved the in
strument. Instead of a monster machine
that it took three or four hours to put to
gether, Heindereieh reduced the guillotine
to its simplest expression and such as it is
to-day; two upright iron beams containing
two grooves oil each inner side, one for the
“lunette,” or socket, and the other for the
trapeziform knife; a perpendicular swing
ing plank rising to the level of the culprit’s
breast, against which he is thrown forward
between the two beams; at tho right of this
plank, and leaning on to a willow basket,
painted black and partly filled with bran,
is a board over which they slide the body
after decapitation; to the left, two pails of
carbonated water; in front, a sort of zinc
tub into which the head falls. The guillo
tine was formerly painted in red, and the
knife so exposed that it was the first object
seen by the condemmed man on leaving the
prison”gate. Now, it is of a pale yellow
color, and the knife is concealed.
The guillotine is erected on the part of
the Rue de la Roquette, which forms a
small square between the two prisons
fronting on it. One is the Grand Roquette,
used for condemned to long terms of im
prisonment or banishment and who re
main here until they are sent elsewhere
or shipped to New Caledonia. The other
is Little Roquette, where minors are con
The distance from the prison door to the
guillotine is not more than twenty steps.
The executions take place at the dawn of
day, and as far as anything being seen by
the crowd they are practically private.
Only the journalists and a few privileged
ones arc a knitted on the square. At 3
o’clock in the morning the cavalry and in
fantry of tiie Paris Municipal Guard, 100
each, fifty cavalry gendarmes and about
AUO policemen apjiear. The soldiers push
back the mob so as to leave the entire square
deal'. Shortly afterward the executioner
arrives in a large red wagon which contains
the guillotine. The instrument is packed in
a number of cases, each piece being nu n
bored. The aids put it together, the work
not lasting over half aa hour. When the
knife is in place the headsman tries its edge
o:i a bundie of straw to see that it slides
easily and cuts well. Just before the mo
ment of execution the gendarmes arrange
themselves in a horse-shoe form around the
guillotine, and two rows of policemen form
a line from the prison door to the instru

The Wicked Male Flirt.
From London Society.
The male flirt is an individual not con
fined to our own days, nor yet even to our
own century. From time immemorial this
terrible yet fascinating person has scoured
society just ns the pirates and buccaneers of
old are said to have scoured the seas with
their powerful and irresistible charm. There
is a weird attract ion about him, a fearful
joy at his approach, a horrible and unnatu
ral delight at the bare mention of his name.
Like the vampire of German fairy lore, ho
subjugates the senses and curdles the blood
at one and the same time; ho is
delightful and yet charming, catching
and yet appalling, all at once. Tho
male flirt is the terror of mothers, and the
detestation of tiie whole race of elderly
aunts and chaperones of all kinds. We have
all in turn been warned against him, all
cautioned to steel our hearts to his advances
and to barricade the portals of our souls
against hi-, seepent-like depredations. Yet
so contradictious and so foolish is the nature
of women that there is not one of us, young
or old, who lias not at some time or another
of our lives fallen a willing victim to this
seductively dangerous individual. The
male flirt is made so neither by practice nor
yet by education —he is born so;
just as genius, or cooking, or mathematics
is born with o man, so is flirting
in its higher brunches implanted within him
by nature. He is not often a handsome man,
although he is invariably a pleasant one,
and ho is not, a-s a rule, popular among his
fellow men. Fathers and brothers eye him
with suspicion as something which they do

THE VISIT CAUSED A WEDDINO.
Pat Hally’s Daughter Marries Her
Lover All Through Cleveland’s
From the Chicago Tribune.
St. Paul, Minn., Oct. 10. —Mr. Cleve
land's visit here has brought domestic bliss
to two young people whose marriage shows
to Pat Kelly that he may be the boss Demo
crat of Minnesota, but is not boss of his own
household. Pat Kell} - is known all over
the country a< the boss of Democratic
politics in this State. In addition to that he
is a successful merchant, is worth $:i,000,0()0,
and now aspires to social eminence. Ho has
two daughters, and hoped that they could
accomplish all that was needed to raise him
to the desired social prominence by
judicious marriages. In bis zeal to
climb into bt. Paul’s first social circles the
Hon. Pat has given many dinners to promi
nent St. Paul people and their visitors, at
which he never has less than seven kinds of
wine. Less than that number would not
have come up to the eminent political boss’
idea of a dinner. Among those who were
invited to some of those dinners was E. W.
S. Tingle, whose father is Seal Agept for
this government at the Alaskan islands.
Tingle the younger is employed on the St.
Paul Globe, and, as is the custom of his
class, is as poor as the time-honored church
mouse. Ho was not one of the persons
upon whom Pat Kelly had fixed his
eye as a suitable husband for one of
his daughters. Young Tingle visited the
house frequently, took one of the young
ladies to the " theatre very often, ana
otherwise paid attentions that won her
heart. Mr. Kelly, in the meantime, paid
attention to liis private and political busi
ness, and did not think much about young
Tingle’s visits. A short time ago Tingle
asked his consent to marry one of his
daughters. The Hon. Pat, in language fre
quently used by Democratic bosses, denied
the boon. The young girl was true to her
lover, and they agreed to be married by the
priest Oct. 14. I .ike a dutiful daughter the
young lady wrote a note to her father, ask
ing him to be present. He threw the note
back, saying that if she proposed to make
such a fool of herself he did not wish to
keep any souvenir of it. But Mrs. Kelly
finally came to the rescue of the lovers.
The boss had decided to have Col. and
Mrs. Vilas to dinner during the President’s
stay and to capture Mr. and Mrs. Cleveland
if that were possible. All arrangements
had been made when Mrs. Kelly declared
she would not receive Mrs. Cleveland, Mrs
Vilas, or any one else unless her daughter
was allowed to be married at her own home
and to invite her friends. Mr, Kelly knew
his wife meant what she said. It was neces
sary to give a dinner to Col. and Mrs.
Vilas, and he was determined to
capture the President and his wife.
He could not afford to lose this big social
plum oil any account, and finally ne con
sented to the match. The wedding was set
for the 14th, two days after the President’s
departure. Fearing that after his own point
had been gained her father might not carry
out his part of the agreement, the young
girl concluded that she had better be mar
ried first. This decision was announced to
the honorable Fat, who was made blue with
anger. He was compelled to give in, how
ever, and the marriage took place last
Wednesday. The young people are East on
their wedding trip.
“So,” remarked a liosry-headed sage, ‘-you
think you have in your brain an invention that
will revolutionize the carrying trade?"
• I trow 1 have," replied the ambitious youth.
"Well," sai 1 the h. h. s., "learn a lesson from
the hen. When she lavs an egg she straight
away cackles until the whole farm knows it.”
“And then?” said the giddy youth
“.Somebody comes and takes away the egg.”
And the g. y. looked serious and made a
memorandum in his note book.— Brooklyn
