Six states of the Union have already

prediction is common that in more

The stockholders of the Georgia
Improvement company decided last
night to transfer the Atlanta and
Florida road to the Americus Invest
ment company. The Constitution has
urged that this step should not be
taken until other resources had been
trid and the fullest investigation had.
This has been done, and with una
nimity Colonel Hawkins’s proposition
is accepted as the best. The Consti
tution now joins hands with our new
ttllies and will do everything in our
power to bring these projects to suc
Here is what Atlanta will gain!
The Americus Investment company
now has about 1.15 miles of road
stretchiug from Louvale to Abbeville
on the Altamaha. This road t runs
through a very rich country, passes
such towns as Anierieus and G'ordele,
aud at Abbeville meets a fleet of five
boats which run to Havnnnnh and
Brunswick. Atlanta lias the Atlanta

lanta to Fort Valiev.
Qplonel Hawkins proposes to eon

building the link ot 12 miles to coir
nect these two lines. He feels sure
that the work can he finished iu time

then have—instead of a disconnected

Southern road, reaching from Macon

But Colonel Hawkins does not pro
pose to stop with this. He will not
only extend the Atlanta aud Florida
from Fort Valley to Cordele, hut he
will extend his road from Abbeville
to Savannah. This line is now being
surveyed and will be asst redly built
and will give Atlanta a new and inde
pendent line to Savaunah, 13 miles
shorter than the present route. It is
proposed to build also from Louvale
to Montgomery, only 100 miles, and
also to Tallahassee, where there is con
nection with the gulf at St. Marks.
This whole systea of roads, con

Wasiiixutox, May 14.—The clerks
who were detailed from the general
laud office to go to Oklahoma to assist
the officials at the Guthrie aud King
fisher land offices returned to Wash
ington to-dny. They state that at
Kingfisher about eight hundred entries
had been made up to last Friday, and
at Guthiie about one thousand had
been made. The total number of
quarter sections in the territory open
to settlement is 10,000, aud hence,
less than one-fifth of the whole has
been filed. «
The force of clerks now employed

the new territory. The scarcity of
water has been, to some extent, over

Mr. Theodore Roosevelt, the new
civil service commissioner, though a
strong republican, in his “American
Statesmen Series” pays the follow
ing tribute to Lee’s ragged veterans:
"The world has never seen better
soldiers than those who followed Lee ;
and their leader will undoubtedly rank
as without any exception the very
greatest ol all the great chieftains that
the English speaking peoples have
brought forth—and this, although the
at^tlie two land offices is believed to he last and chief of his antagonists, may
himself claim to stand as the full equal
of Marlborough or Wellington.”
positively he lias his arrangements
made for completing the whole system.
This will give him a line from Mont
gomery to the opean 100 miles shorter
than any other—aud 50 miles shorter
from Birmingham to the ocean titan
any other. The present and proposed
lines—called the Savannah, Americus
and Montgomery route—ruus almost

identical route proposed by Mr.
Stephens as the first great traus conti

So much for what is promised. We

Savannah, which gives us a new line

sonable probability that we shall have
also a new line to Montgomery, and
another to Florida and the gulf.
The Constitution has long predicted
that there would be, and steadily
urged that there should he, a consoli
dation of the independent lines in
Georgia under one control or alliance,
and the connecting of every line by
building in the broken gaps. The
transfer of the Atlanta and Florida
last night is an important step in this
direction. We have tt»c best authority
for saying that the gap from Cedar-
town to Atlanta will he built. This
will give, with Colonel Hawkins’s
plant most finished, an independent
line from Chattanoogo to Savannah,
with ramifications into nearly every
part of the state. It is significant

An exchatfge says that the people
of Michigan have about come to the
conclusion that they must restore cap-
ita'I punishment as a deterrent from
murder. It is claimed that the fear of
life imprisonment, under the cordi
tions which obtain in modern peniteo
tiaries, does not sufficiently restrain
the class of men most apt to commit
murder, as shown by the alleged fact
that there aft more crimes of that
grade in Michigan than in any state
of the union, except, perhaps, Texas.
It is stated as a remarkable fact in this
connection that the last four murders
in the latter state were committed by
former residents of Michigan, which
goes far to explain why Texas suffers
by comparison even with Michigan.
The lawless of other states have long
sought refuge witbin her borders.
