President Donaldson, ot the Bain-
bridge, Cuthhert and Columbus road,
has assured the citizens of Ba nbridge
that the road will be built at once from
Bainbridge to Cuthbert, if the citizens
will subscribe $20,000, to be paid when
the road is completed. And Bain
bridge will raise the money. They
would be acting very toolishly if they
did not. The road will be extended
westward from Cuthhert to Columbus
and southward to Quincy or Tallahas
It gives us pleasure to testify here to
the excellent work being done on the
Constitution by Mr. M. Folsom To
whatever class of work he is assigned
—wherever he is assigned—he fully
maintains the expectations of his
friends who have observantly lollowed
his brilliant career. There is a great
deal of come-out in this young man—
and much has already come.
The above compliment to a wire-
grass boy, in the Constitution, will be
fully appreciated by Montgomery Fol
som’s south Georgia friends. Folsom
started in at the bottom of the ladder,
but be is in sight of the top round.
And be will get there. The writer
has watched his course with interest
and wishes for him both fame and for-
South .Georgia-is deeply interested
in the question of melon and fruit
rates. ^It jvds hoped and expected
that the roads would give growers a
living rate this year. The following,
from the News and Advertiser,Albany,
is an eye opener:
The melon growers have been lay
ing the flattering unction to their souls
that the rates for the near season would
be a great reduction on those that were
in force last season, and their hopes
and expectations of better returns have
been raised in proportion to the sup
But alas! a comparison of the rates
promulgated for the present season and
those in force last year will partly de
stroy the delusion by discovering the
rst. The rates to points south of the
Ohio and east ot the Mississippi rivers,
have been reduced in accordance with
the promises of the southern roads
and requirements ot the Georgia
ad. The rates north of the Ohio and
west ot the Mississippi have been ad-
vanced fully 50 per cent., so that the
reduction in the through rates to those
points amounts to only 6 per cent.,
when, if there had been no increase, it
would have been 18 per cent.
This will appear plainly from the
following tablulated statement with
Chicago lit 75 104 20

It is whispered that a prominent
southern line has been dickering with
the roads north ot the Ohio, with a
view to sharing in the advance. If
such is the case a mild case of boy
cotting would be in order.

Capt. VV. D. Dixon, a prominent

a base ball club of the Forest city.
As there is great rivalry among the

V P. Dickson has adopted a novel
mode of stimulating the Centers. He
offers two prizes for those who make

case, and a handsome tombstone with

be reidy for burial. Well, a metallic
case is a very good place for a
young man who can’t talk anything
but base ball.
The New Republican Motto.
How would this jfo for a campaign
banner for 1892? writes a reader from
New York: “A public office is a fam
Some Plain Talk.
The New York Herald contains a
communication from Mr. William J.
Griffiu, a resident of Elizabeth, N. J.,
showing whv Southern protectionists
place the race issue before the tariff
question, and why men who oppose
the economic policy of the Democrat
ic pnrty still repudiate Republicanism
and all that it implies.
High above the question of tariff;
stys this writer, ranks the question of
self-respect and self government. The
South lias no prejudice against the
North for the part it took in the
emancipation of the negro. It has
no enmity against the negro himself
as a laborer and a citizen. But it has
unalterable hostility to that party
which has endeavored to legislate the
negro into supremacy at the South; to
take the control of public offices from
the hands of the whites and give it to
the blacks; to reverse the civilization
of this section and.to place the peo
ple under a ban of perpetual recon
struction. Thn history of Republi
canism has been one of hostility to
the South. And yet Northern men
and some Northern papers, like the
Herald, affect surprise- that Southern
men of protection sentiment do not
become Republicans. This correspon
dent informs the Republican party
that it may just as well try to' legis
late Calfornia into Chinese control, or
the Western Territories into Indian
governments, as to place the South
Atlantic seaboard, like Hayti, under
negro rule. The whites must rule the
blacks or th* blacks will rule the whites.
This is about the size of it. Millions are
spent to put men in office in the
Northern States, aud schemes with
“blocks of five” arc engineered to
wheedle doubtful States into column;
but when Southern men overcome the
black ballot by means of legislation or
otherwise, the pat ty of “high moral
ideas” becomes shocked. The South
has turned a deaf car, and always
will turn it, to the allurements of men
who promise as the price of party
affiliation, Congressional votes and
negro supremacy, new industries and
material wealth. Self-respect and
race pride cannot be subverted along
these lines' The Almighty, in His
infinite wisdom, has stamped the
races with-inequality; nan, in his in
finite ability but infinite self-conceit,
cannot legislate them into equality.
The Northern people have not shown
themselves more forbearing toward
the colored people where they exist
in large numbers or become trouble
some in Northern communities.
Mr. Griffin puts the Puritan ele
ment in the North and West on no
tice that the old trait ot knowiug
what is best for other p:ople, and of
insisting upon an acceptance of their
own policy, is an error which had
best be abandoned.
Mr. Griffin has made out a strong
case. He is entirely right when lie
says that there is no hostility among
the whites towards the negro as a
class. The best element of the South
recognizes that there is no portentous
race issue before us; that shotguns
and swindling arc not agents for the
settlement of the problem. They
treat the negro fairly and considerate
ly, and are glad to sec him given a
fair chance in life. But whatever
anybody’s feelings on this point, or
private convictions abqpt custom
houses and internal revenue bureaus,
they cauuot accept the principles and
prejudices of that party whose shib
boleth is hostility to the South and
its people. Under this sort of in
fluence the solidity of the South has
never becni broken, and it never will.
“ The Melon Crop.
The protracted drouth which was
broken by copious raius last week has
proved a serious injury to the melon
crop. It is feared that the rains have
come too late. The growth of the
vines and the fruiting of the same has
bean set back ten or fifteen days, and
in many instances the vines have died
outright. We cannot hope now to
ship as many melons as we did last
year by a considerable amount.—
Valdosta Times. '
The Railway Age says that 53,436
miles of new railway have already been
projected in the first quarter of 1889.
There are 666 new lines. Nearly halt
of the new mileage will be in the south
and southwest. And yet there are
croakers who believe the country is
moving backwards. Some of these
days they will get run over by the
wheels of progress.
The most eastern point of the Unit
cd States is Quoddy Head, Me.; the
most northern point I’oinl Barrows,
Alaska; the most western point is Al

Key West. Working.from these lour
points, many will be surprised when
they locate the geographical center of
the United Slates.

Mr. John B. Harrison,of Springfield,
III., says he had blood poison tor quite
a time; hfis tonsils were swollen, erup
tions over his hands and face, follovycd
by paralysis of the face, which was all
relieved by Swift’s Specific, and after
the lapse of seven years there has been
no sign of the return of the disease.
Over lour years ago Swift’s Specific
cured me of a troublesome eruption
which covered my shoulders, back and
limbs, This was after I had been
treated by six doctors, some of whom
said I never would get well.
