From Chattanooga to Quincy, Florida,
Georgia is to have another great
railroad system, to be built in con
nection with the Chattanooga, Koine,
and Columbus, ttic Columbus Soulli-
ern and other existing lilies.
Mr. W. II. Lowe left Monday for
New York to consummate arrange
ments with Messrs. Sully, Borg and
Dow, the capitalisiswho furnished the
money to build the Chattanooga,
Koine and Columbus.
A tew weeks agoCapt. Knglish stat
ed in an interview in The Constitu
tion that the bonds of the Columbus
Southern had been sold. Mr. Lowe
stated in an interview a month or so
before that lie had taken Mr. Duval,
of the Florida Kail way and Naviga
tion company, over tiie ground be
tween the ’ southern terminus of
the Columbus Southern end Quin
cy, Florida, anil that Mr. Duval had
gone home to recommend to his stock
holders the building of a road from
Dawson to Quinrv. Thai would com-
ilete the connection from Chattanooga
iv a north and south line from Chat
tanooga to Quincy when the Chatta
nooga, Romo and Columbus is com
pleted to Columbus.
It is now proposed to unite these
roads in one system from Chattanooga
to Quincy, and there to make close
traffic arrangements with the Florida
Kailway and Navigation Company.
It is proposed to extend the Chat
tanooga, Borne and Columbus by way
of Warm Springs to Cordelo, and on
to Savannah. It is said that this will
make a shorter route from Chatta
nooga to Savannah than any existing
line. Ollier extensions are proposed,
but just what tlie details are will not
be known till Mr. Lowe consummates
the arrangements in New York. It
is thought that when lie returns, ten
days lienee, the Chattanooga Brick
Company will put a heavy force at
work on the road.
Captain J. W. English is now in
Columbus, and it is thought that
arrangements will be made with the
Georgia Midland for an entrance into
that place. The intersection of that
road by the Chattanooga, Borne and
Columbus will be at Warm Springs.
Mr. Lowe went oil in high spirits,
and it is thought that the new system
Is practically assured—Constitution.
William E. Chandler, having let the
ear-pulling story run until after his
election to the senate again,now comes
out in a card and denies the story,
You see the fact of a southern Senator
having twisted that part of Chandler’s
anatomy, was a winning card. The
people of New Hampshire, it seems,
like to be tepresented by a man who
will not resent such an insult. But,
unfortunately for the .victim, Senator
Faulkner, of West Virginia, who was
present and witnessed the affair,comes
out in a statement, which appears in
the New York Herald, in which Chan
dler is proven to be an arrant coward,
and a liar as well. Referring to Chan
dler’s dental that Blackburn had pull
ed his ear, Senator Faulkner says:
“In this statement Mr. Chandler
fails to repeat the the offensive utter
ance made by him which so angered
Mr. Blackburn, It was this:
“ ‘I do not intend to be bulldozed
by any Kentucky negro.’
“When I heard that expression from
Mr. Chandler, I turned to look at Mr.
Blackburn, who was on my left, to see
the effect upon him. His face mani
fested the most intense excitement
and almost uncontrollable rage, and I
appreciated the fact at once that the
words ot controversy between these
two gentlemen was to be brought to a
prompt conclusion. Mr. Blackburn,
in a moment or two, arose from his
chair; at the same time intimating his
purpose to make a personal assault
upon Mr. Chandler. He walked
around my chair to the head of the
table, where Mr. Chandler continued
to sit, without the change of a muscle
or the utterance of a word.
“Mr. Chandler is mistaken when he
says that at this point of the contro
versy either Senator Cullom or myself
interposed between him and Mr.BlackJ
“Mr. Blackburn stood over Mr,
Chandler’s chair some moments using
language which would convey to the
miDd of any one the doubt resting in
his own mind as to what course he
should pursue; inasmuch as Mr. Chan
dler still remained seated and it was
impossible for Blackburn to strike him
—which was manifestly his purpose—
in position. A moment’s reflection
seems to have decided him and to the
best oi my recollection and belief, be
used the expression:
“ ‘Damn you, I can’t strike you while
you are sitting down, but I can show
my contempt for you by twisting your
Accompanying that remark with the
action, he caught him by the upper
part of the ear and gave it a contempt
uous twist, not apparently with a view
to personally injuring Mr. Chandler,
but as I supposed at the time, to cast
an indignity upon him. Seeing that
Mr. Chandler made no resistance to
the action of Mr. Blackburn, I rose
from my seat, pressed Mr. Blackburn
and said: ‘Mr. Blackburn, as Mr.
Chandler has not. seen fit to resent
what you have done to him, your own
honor and manhood demand that you
should not either, by word or act, in
terfere further with him.’ ”
Chandler says Blackburn didn’t pull
his car;^aulkner says he did. The
public will not be slow in deciding
who has lied.
