Wo enjoyed a pleasant visit yester
day from Mr. A. L. Rice, of New
York, President of the Gainesville,
Tallahasse and Western Railway.
Mr. Rice is well pleased with our hill
country, and says the road will be
built. He has boeu in Florida some
time, getting the affairs of the com
pany in shape since the death of Ma
jor Gruelle. This route has lone been
regarded as one of tho most import
ant of the projected roads in the
south, and the people all along the
line—fiom Gainesville to Bainbridgc
—look with much favor upon the en
terprise. Operations will be begun in
earnest early in the fall, and we trust
the work of construction will go for
ward with all possible speed.—Floridi

There is no enterprise that would be
more important to the progressive and
rapidly-growing city of Albany than
this proposed line into Florida. True,

not and cannot control any line enter
ing her corporate limits. She now
proposes to build and control the A1
bany & Quincy line. Thomasville,
too, is goinc to build a railroad inde
pendent of all other lines.
It will be seen that the Albany &
Quincv road is to lie built via Bain-
bridge, and beyond a doubt it will
prove a blessing to our town. A mul
tiplicity of railroads is the only thing
that would give Bainbridae the com
merciai position to which she is entitled.
The Alabama Midland will help us for
awhile, it is true, but lor lasting benefit
we must have more railroads. The
indications are that we will have them
in the not distant future. The Bain-
bridge. Cuthbert and Columbus is a

elson is the head, so is the Georgia &

to be a rather expensive business. But

always buy a desert service or vases
