The New Railroad.
An independent northern outlet
would add one thousand inhabitants
to Thomasville within twelve mouths.
A FEW REASONS.
The reyair and machine shops of
the new road would be built in Thom
asville. This would mean a large
number of skilled mechanics, and a
fine monthly pay roll. Do not tiie
merchants £S5 something in this?
And these mechanics would hare to
buy lots and build houses. Do not
real estate, lumber dealers and me
chanics see something in this? And
then these families would have to
buy dry goods, groceries, shoes, hats
etc. Do notj mercliauts sec some
thing in this? And yet there are
tiiosc who would reap largely of this
increased trade and business, who
have not, as yet, subscribed one dol
lar to the new road. And mind you,
they arc not asked to glee a cent, hut
to make an investment, which, if Col.
Wright, Mr. T. C. Mitchell, Col.
McIntyre, Mr. David Sheffield, Mr.
S. L. Hayes, Mr. W. E. Davies, Mr.
j. L. Linton, and many others,
are not mentally unbalanced, not de
ficient in financial ability, not incap
able of attending to tlisir own affairs,
is hound to pay, and pay handsomely.
There is every argument in favor of
the enterprise; not one against it.
The store of Mr. Louis Wilkes, of
Bainbridgc, was burglarized Sunday
night. Only a small sum ot money
Several attempts at burglary have
been mado in our city during tho last
few days, of which we have said noth
ing, by request of the parties on
whom the attempts were made. Our
people cannot he too careful in look
ing out for the festive gentlemen
making these efforts. A dose of
buckshot at short range is about the
best remedy for such crimes.
Mrs. W. L. Gordon, Principal of

Closing Exercises of_-Jackson Street
r The exercises of this school Monday
evening at the city hall were highly
enjoyed by those who attended. Ev
erything went off well, each speaker
seeming to feel what he or she said,
and threw their whole souls into it.
The opening piece was spoken by little
Lizzie Carter, aged five years, who
spoke without any hesitancy, though
the house was crowded. It is impos
sible to speak of each ore individually,
but all did well. “Papa comes home”
was sung by Hattie Daniels in a pleas
ing way. William Powell also sung a
solo, “Good Bye, till I sec you Again."
The teacher, Mr. M. J. Jones, deserves

IIow do you repogoik 1110-1111 and
i»th section* of tho proposed new char
ter for Thomasville, with the 1st sec
tion article 2d, of the Constitution of
the State of Georgia?
The constitution, as I understand it,
prescribes the qualifications for voters
in (it! election* by the jtcop/e.
One of these requisites is that the
voter shall have paid all his taxes- ex
cept for the year of the election.
The new charter requires the voter
to swear upon registration that he lias
paid all hia taxes, except for the year
of his registration.
Tho registration hook closes on the
first Monday in December, and the
election of city officers takes place in
the succeeding January of a new year.
I f registration is the only qualifica
tion of voters so far as taxes are con
cerned, then a man may vote at the
municipal elections who has not paid
his taxes ior the year of, nor the year
preceding the election,
There may he some satisfactory
explanation of this matter; if so, I
hope you will give it.
Wo commend the point mado by
our correspondent to the city fathers,
ft would seem that the inconsistency
spoken of arises from an oversight,
which can lie corrected before the
charter becomes a law.
The colored people of Ashbury Parle,

Two Uttle Girin,
I have two little girls—one two and
the other four years of age. They were
both very badly afflicted with eruptions
on the face and neck. Sometimes when
they would strike the sores against any
thing they would bleed as long as ten
minutes; they were, in fact, so painful
that we had to tie up the hands ot the
younger with solt rags to prevent her
trom scratching off the flesh. They suf
fered in this way for about eight months
during which time we tried several rem
edies without any relict. Seeing Swift’s
Specific recommended highly,I discard
ed all other remedies, and bought one
bottle of it and gave to the children and
it cured both sound and well, and they
are now entirely free from any trouble.
