NEW YORK TO THE SOUTH.
TIDE OF TRAVEL PROMISING TO
SURPASS ALL RECORDS.
A Remarkably Fast and Attractive
Train Service—The Public-Spirited
Enterprise of the Railway Lines
Leading Thereto. •
From the Setc York Commercial Sews.
There are plentiful indications that the
travel from the North to Florida and other
points South will be greater this winter than
ever before. The innumerable advantages
presented by the South as a place of winter
sojourn are now better understood and re
cognised as quite the thing in fashionable
circles, and, moreover, it is becoming quit .*
the fashion to spend at least a few weeks in
Florida between December and March.
Greater facilities for this class of travel
have been provided for the coining season,
and the people interested in the South are
building new and elegant hotels and exert
ing themselves in every way in their power
to encourage such desirable visitors as the
rich people of New York, Boston and the
Northern States are recognized to be.
The railways leading to Florida have
made very complete arrangements to ac
commodate the rush of travel this season.
A reporter for this paper called yesterday
at the office of the Plant system, at Hi West
'Twenty-third street, and had the pleasure
of interviewing Mr. H. B. Plant, the head
of the system embraced in these various j
lines, who said, in answer to the interroga
tories of the reporter:
“Yes, special arrangements have been
made to accommodate travel the coming
season, with additional and improved facili
ties and fast service. Trains leave Jersey
City by the Pennsylvania railroad daily at
9 o’elocK p. m. with sleeping car service for
Charleston, Savannah, Jacksonville and
Tampa. A second train leaves Jersey City
at 12 o’clock at night for Washington,
where passengers are transferred to the At
lantic Coast Line and West India fast mail
train, which leaves Boston daily at
*> o’clock p. m., Jersey City at 5
o’clock a. m., Washington at 11 o’clock
a. m., arriving in Jacksonville at
12 o'clock the next day, and Tampa, Fla.. at
8 the same evening, where mails and pas
sengers are transferred to the steamships
leaving there tri weekly for Key West and
Havana, the timo from New York to Ha
vana being seventy-two hours. This train
is run both ways under special contract
with the United States Post Office Depart
nient. In addition to this regular service
the companies have contracted with
the Pullman Palace Car Company for
the construction of a train made up
of the latest device for comfort of pas
sengers, and known as the Pullman ves
tibule train, and which will be put upon
the line in the early part of January, run
ning special to Jacksonville, leaving Jersey
City on the days to be appointed at 9:30 a.
m.,and arriving at Jacks nville and St.
Augustine the following day in time for
dinner. Besides these superior facilities a
special sleeper is expected to leave Philadel
phia daily for the accommodation of travel
ers for Thomasviile, a place which has
rapidly grown into popularity with those
people seeking Southern health resorts,
located in South Georgia, 200 miles from
Savannah, at an elevation of 300 feet above
tide water, where new- and commodious
hotels have been constructed, resulting in its
becoming a very fashionable place for the
winter and spring.
“In addition to these facilities for getting
South, direct service from the East is bad
via the Richmond and Danville aud East
Tennes-ee systems, the former via Augusta
and the latter via Atlanta, for points in
Florida; also for Pensacola, New Orlean
fuid Southern Texas, all inviting travel to
their respective shores. The fast mail train
on its return brings the mail from Havana
for the entire United States, as the time be
tween the whole of Europe and the island
of Cuba has by the.se first trains been very
considerably reduced, aud most of the
European mail between Cuba and Europe is
now forwarded by way of New York and
this fast mail service, the time being from
three to six days shorter than by the ocean
“Referring to the new train which it is
proposed to commence running early in
January, the entire train will be on the ves
tibule pattern, composed probably of four
■leepei-s, accommodation car and dining car,
iu which latter meals will be served at
seasonable hours during the entire trip. The
combination car will consist of a library, a
smoking apartment and a buffet, where re
freshments will be served at all hours, while
the meals to be served in the din
ing car will be equal to those served ut first
class hotels. The train will, in fact, be as
fine as the genius of Mr. Pullman can nro
vide. and in which the combination car I
refer to will be a conspicuous and appre
ciated feature. My belief is that Florida is
going to enjoy an extraordinary season, and
will have a great rush of people who seek to
Avoid the severity of a Northern winter,
and at the same time be provided with the
comforts and luxuries of life.”

mostly from the North, and consisting
mainly of registered packages, was partially
destroyed by the fire. The extent of the

A CORPSE IN THE OCMULGEE.
The Body Found at Macon Sunday
[ Macon, Nov. 7.—Yesterday afternoon
R. H. Cherry and J. J. Myers, while com
ing up the river in a boat, discovered the
body of a drowned man in the Ocmulgee,
near the east bank, opposite the grand
stand at the park. The river was very shal
low and the body was lying on the bottom
half expo ed to view. They reported the
matter and Coroner Hodnett summoned a
jury and an inquest was held this morning.
The body was removed from the river, but
it was so swollen, and the face was so much
disfigured as to render form and
feature unrecognizable. The face
had burst near the nose from ex
cessive swelling from long confinement
in the water. The man was well dressed,
and from letters in his pocket directed to
R. P. Cook it was evident that the deceased
was R. P. Cook, a well-known citizen of
Jones county, who was Sheriff of that
county a few years ago. On Thursday of
lair week Will Boss found a mau's hat
lodged in the river against the boom just
below the Central railroad bridge. This
hat was produced this morning, and Coroner
Hodnett recognized it as the hat lie saw
Cook woaii|pg on Wednesday of State Fair
week while Cook and L. Grace were stand
ing talking in front of the saloon of L.
Hancock, on Mulberry street.
WHEN LAST SEEN.
Tho last seen of Cook in life, ns far as was
heard, was on Wednesday night of fair
week, at Cassidy’s bar, corner of Mulberry
and Fifth streets. He evidently met bis
death that night, but whether he was mur
dered and thrown into the river or fell into
the river from the bridge, or in some other
manner, will perhaps forever remain a mys
tery. Besides the letters found in Cook’s
pockets this morning was $2 SO in
cash. The finding of this money
might explode the idea of robbery
and murder but for the fact that Coroner
Hodnett states that according to his recollec
tion Cook wore a handsome gold watch and
chain when he saw him on Wednesday of fair
week, and no chain and watch was on the
body to-day when it was taken from the
water. R. H. Cherry aud J. J. Myers were
the only persons admitted at the inquest
this morning, and they merely testified to
the finding of the body yesterday. A ver
dict in accordance with the above facts was

HOW FRED POST GAVE STEAM TO
"OLD 400” TO SAVE A MAN’S NECK.
A Midnight Run That Prevented a
Lynching at Fort Collins, and Finally
Resulted in the Man Being Strung Up
From the Chicago Mail.
“One of the best and withal the most
daring engineers on the Union Pacific was,
and still is. Fred Post, of Cheyenne,” said
one of the Rocky Mountain delegates to the
Convention of the Brotherhood now in ses
sion in this city. “When Post is on an en
gine ho doesn’t seem to know what fear is.
He has had passenger engines dozens of
times, but it wouldn’t be long before he
would make some reckless run, just for tho
deviltry of the thing, and then he would
be sent back to a freight run again. It
seems to be almost impassible for him to
run on schedule time—he isn’t happy unless
he can let her out for every revolution
there is in her. One of tho flash
runs was from Cheyenne to Greeley, Col.,
and over to Fort Collins, and then back
again to Cheyenne. A special was made up
in Cheyenne to go over to Fort Collins after
a murderer named Mushier. Post was or
dered to take ‘old 400,’ tho fastest engine on
the road, and a ‘way car’ was attached for
the party of officers. Among the passen
gers wore Sheriff Sharpless, several deputy
sheriffs, some newspaper men, a few promi
nent citizens and Mr. Deuel, the Superin
tendent of the road. The train liful the
right of way, and everything was ordered
on the side tracks until the special passed.
You see the case was an important one, and,
and, as it resulted in one of the most famous
lynchings ever known in the far West, is
“The man Moshier was a low-lived assas
sin who had shot several people. He was
tramping over the lonely trail between
Cheyenne and the Black Hills one day when
he mot a freighter, who picked him up and
fed him and let him ride to Cheyenne. The
freighter also had a passenger in a young
man who had lived near Fort Laramie, and
who was on his way to his former home in
lowa. The outfit consisted of a big ‘prairie
schooner,’ a trail wagon and sixteen mules.
When the end of the journey was reached
the party camped on the prairie, about three
miles from Cheyenne, and near the govern
ment post of Fort Russell. The freighter
intended to come into town early the next
morning, load the wagons with goods for the
Black Hills, and come back in the evening to
the same camping ground. The mules were
turned out to graze on the rich upland
grass, and, as the night was threatening, all
three men spread their blankets in one of
the big wagons, which, like all freight
wagons, was covered with canvas, stretched
over high bows. A man standing in the
wagon couldn’t touch the canvas top over
head, so they make a pretty comfortable
prairie bedroom. During the night Moshier
got up, and, taking an axe, struck the
sleeping freighter a blow on the head. Sup
posing he had killed him, he next struck the
passenger, fracturing his skull. But the
man raised up, and, wounded as he was,
grappled with the murderer, took the ax
away from him and threw it out of the
wagon. Moshier then shot the man
three times. A soldier at the post going
out on a duck hunt passed not far
from the wagons and heard the shooting.
Returning to the post he obtained assistance,
and an investigation resulted in finding the
bodies of two men, but Moshier had fled.
The freighter was unconscious, but the pass
enger, although mortally wounded, was
able to make a dying statement to an Epis
copal clergyman’and to the prosecuting at
torney. Unfortunately he didn’t know
Moshier’s name. He died that afternoon.
It came out that the murderer intended to
kill his benefactor and his fellow passenger,
dump their bodies into the wagons,
hook up the mules, and drreo off with the
whole outfit. At night he w< >uld bury the
bodies, build a big camp fire over tbeir
graves to hide the spot, and take the
wagons and mules to some part of the conn
try where he could sell the outfit, which
was worth about $3,000.
“The i icople were indignant over the das
tardly crime, and the other freighters were
wild with anger. Big rewards were offered
by the Territory and by private citiz ns,
and hundreds of men galloped over the
country in search of the murderer. Three
days afterward, and much to the surprise of
everybody, the freighter regained conscious
ness. He told who the murderer was, and
then many people knew the man they were
pursuing. Several days afterward lie was
captured by Sheriff Sweeney of Fort Col
“The Sheriff of Cheyenne feared a lynch
ing, and so the special train was secretly made
up to go to Fort Collins, and get back before
daylight. Engineer Post was in his ele
ment, for he was expected to make fast
time. The se -lion of the road between
Greelv and Fort Collins was new and rough.
The t ies were laid on the dirt, without any
rock ballast, and recent heavy rains had
ma le the ground soft, The way Post ran
‘old 4<)o' was an example of his recklessness.
I always believed he must have hung a
weight on the safety val ve. There wer sta
tionary stoats on each side of the way-car,
and a few common chairs sat on the floor.
In one half of the car were bunks for the
use of the train men, and the Sheriff and
the Superintendent laid down on
these to sleep. Post had about regained his
standing from his last escapade, and had a
chance so distinguish himself iu rli presence
of the Superintendent, but instead of run
ning with express speed lie turned her over
for every stroke there was in her. Old 400
plunged into the night hissing and rolling
like a demon and a maniac in one. Tlie
way-car rolled from side to side so \ iolently
that it was impossible to sit in the chairs.
Every little while the wheel would strike
the end of some rail that was not joined
evenly; and the car would give a lurch
which threatened to laud it in the ditch.
While the train was rushing to apparent
destruction, Post left the engine
and eame back into the car a moment,
as happy as a man could be. Some
body said something about being turned
over, and Post understood it to be a request
to’turn her over.’ That suited him, and,
returning to the engine, he did ‘turn her
over.’ Heavens! How the engine and its
one car rocked, and swayed, and lurched!
Yet on, faster and faster, they flew over
tlmt dangerous t rack. To add to the ex
citement of the moment, tlie men in the car
discovered that Post had never lieen over
that branch before. Suddenly the car gave
a heavy lurch and there was a sound like a
‘thud’ in tlie bunk room. Tho Superintend
ent and the Sheriff had been thrown out of
their bunk. The former made his way to
the front platform, and, by j'elling at the
top of his voice, attracted Post’s attention.
“The rest of the run to Fort Collins was
made slower, and when the train got there
Post got a jacketing for making such a
wild run. The trip gave him quite a repu
tation at Cheyenne, but lie didn’t get a pas
senger engine. Perhaps the railroad people
had their own views about such a run as
“And Moshier? Oh, they got back to
Cheyenne with him just at sunrise Sunday
morning. That night seventy-five men
marched to tlie jail like a company*of sol
diers, broke open tlie doors, and in the pres
ence of 2.000 people, hanged the murderer
to a telephone pole in the centre of tho
city. Secretary Morgan, tho Secretary of
the Territory, and the Mayor of the city
made speeches to the mob, and pleaded with
the avengers not to hang the man. The
night was cloudless and a vividly bright
moon lit up tlie faces of the stern
lynchers, gave a ghastly hue to the pallid
face of the doomed murderer, and
shone on the anxious crowd of
spectators, who were kept at a respectful
distance by the aimed men. Tlie rope
broke three times, ami, while anew one
was lieing sent for, Secretary Morgan made
an eloquent Appeal for the doomed man.
It didn’t avail, however, and Mushier was
pulled up. He hung between the moon and'
the people who watched him for an hour or
more before they left the scene. Moshier
died without a struggle, and wasn’t cut
down until next morning. .Secretary Mor
gan, who made the eloquent appeal for the
murderer, was here to-day. I mot him in
the rotunda of the hotel and we had a long
talk about old times in Cheyenne. No,
nothing was done with the lynchers. Every
body knew them, but public sentiment was
on their side, and as nearly all of them
were reputable citizens, the matter was
dropped. Post is still running out of Chey
enne, but the last 1 knew had a freight en

Jefferson Davis' Wound.
From the St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
The wound which Mr. Davis suffers from
is a peculiar one. It was received at Buena
Vista in saving Bragg’s battery from oap
ture. Gen. Taylor’s message to battery
commander, “A little more grape, Cant.
Bragg,” was sent during the same battle.
At a critical period the Mexicans advanced
in throe lines upon the battery. “A little
more grape” failed to stop them, and they
came on. Then it was that Col. Davis, hav
ing fought all day with his Mississippi regi
ment, formed them once more, charged on
the flank of the advancing lines, aud saved
the guns and the day. But in that charge
a musket, hall struck Col. Davis upon the
front of the right foot. It entered just
about the centre of the arch between the
ankle and the toes, passed through and
came out of the heel, tearing through bones

Decorating mid Furnishing.
RICHARD SPENLOW. in an article on “Dec
orating and Furnishing,“ published iu the
New York Times of September 4, says:
Any reference to the decorating and furnish
ing of a house would be wanting in a most es
sential foature in these days of culture and re
finement were a word or two left unsaid on that
all-important subject, music. I cannot picture
in my mind a home that could fulfill in the mean
ing implied by the endearing term the functions
of a domestic retreat where this soul-inspiring
art is overlooked. But lam happily able to say
that few and far between are the rooftrees that
do not thrill with the heavenly strains of music
al harmony, as their walls reflect a harmony of
arts but little less divine. Never practice econ
omy by tin* sacrifice of a musical instrument.
Do without something here and there, but do
not omit the piano from your list of furnishings
any more than you would a carpet for the par
lor floor. And when you buy a piano, secure
one that you feel sure will be an ornament to
any drawing-room or parlor iu the land. Such
an instrument as the one I refer to must neces
sarily be the result of the highest art and scien
tific perfection attainable in respect to its manu
facture. The time has long since passed when
the value of a piano could he measured by its
vehemence, immensity and loudness of tone.
It is not intended to be a mere mechanical de
vice for the reproduction of sounds, but a means
for depicting oneV feelings, whether of sorrow
or despair, hope, joy or gladness. It must pos
sess that sympathetic quality of the human
voice that touches the innermost recesses of the
heart. The instrument, in fact, must fairly
.speak, and that. too. with sincerity and feeling.
The piano that I would recommend, therefore,
must be the acme of perfection, inanimate wood
and steel, in other words, must be imbued with
qualities akin to a living organism. And this,
indeed, is true of that noble instrument which
