FRIDAY, JULY It), last. t i;
The betterment question promises
to shake the new capitol.
Itis again reported that Blaine is
going to resign. Republicans rarely
die or resign. It is not their way.
The legislature should not overlook
the road question. The road laws,
like the roads themselves, need re
The thundering denunciations o'
the Charleston ministry against mur
der and adultery reverberates
throughout the country.
Fitzpatrick, the referee in the Sul-
livan-Kilrain fight, has surrendered.
And the balance of the gang might as
well do so; for Gov. Lowry will get
’em in the cud.
Harrison plays ten pins at Deer
I’ark. He puts his eye on a pin,
imagines it a democrat, and down
comes the pin. In this way he lias
made several ten strikes.
Miss Hattie Wooten, of Bainhridge,
who has been spending some days
with friends in the city, leaves to
night for Louisville, Georgia, where
she will spend the summer.
It is said that Boulanger has lost
twenty-one pounds since his arrival in
England. That’s nothing: an Amer

in England. The other fellow held
New Orleans having for years hied
the country with a lottery, the Mexi
cans have established agencies and
propose to swindle the people through
a big lottery in Mexico. Our advice
to all is to let lotteries severely alone.
The country will anxiously await
the correspondence between (lov.
Lowry and the Governor of Massa
chusetts, relative to the extradition of
Sullivan. Boston will bawl, if the
slugger is sent back to Mississippi to
work on a rock pile.
Between the salt and sugar trusts,
the people will be made lo sweat.*
But Mr. Blaine lias said the govern
ment has nothing to do with trusts
and bloated monopolies. The people
will pass on this issue in 1802.
Mr. Snelson has introduced a reso
lution in the house to prevent leaves
of absence, except for providential
causes. Go in Snelson, you’re on the
right line. It is hardly necessary to
add that the members promptly voted
to table the resolution. Thus we go
“Jack the Ripper” is getting iu his
work again in London. Another wo
man was found horribly mutilated
and murdered in Whitehall district
the other day. This fiend lias baffled
the London police for more than two
years. In that time he has murdered
something like twenty women in the
Will It Be Arbitrated?
The betterment question is one
which the legislature will have to
dispose of. It is a live question. The
lessees propose to arbitrate, leaving
the decision to live men, two to he
selected by the Governor, two by the
lessees, and one by these four. They
are, if the arrangement is curried
out, to pass on the following points:
First, Whether tin- lessees arc bon ml to
keep the leased property in the first-class
condition until the end of (lie lease; second,
Whether the lessees nmy not, under tile lease
contract nnd the law, permit the property to
•nil down to the condition it was in at the
•ommcncemcnt of the lease; thild, \\ hetlier
or not the lessees have the right, during the
continuation of the tense, to remove any
of the fixtures they have put on the really,
ftnd what is the value of stuli fixture.-;
fourth, Whether the state should pay any
uni, nnd, if so, what sum in consideration
of an agreement hy the lessees to keep the
pro|ierty iu its present rendition to the end
of tin- lease; Fifth, What is the value of the
rolling stock owned hy the lessees over and
above that roeeived hy the lessn s ot tin-
state; .Sixth, What sum, it any. the stile
owes ihc lessees for taxes paid to the state id
Tennessee on that portion of the property
that lies in Unit state and what ollsel. if
ntiT, the state, has to that indebtedness.
The country is in a state of mind
not to be surprised at anything which
the republican leeches, who are bleed
ing the treasury, may do. Three ex
aminers in the pension department
were dismissed tljc other day, during
Tanner’s absence, for rerating pensions,
giving a number of employes iu the
department another ’dive into Uncle
Sam’s strong vaults. And Tanner
gets up on his hind legs nnd fairly
howls, protesting against the removal
'of tools whose only crime was to ilouli-
le pensions for a few favorites. How
long, O, how long, will the people
■abmit to this open, unblushing rob
bery of their treasury?
Chilling American Sympathy.
The great American heart beats
warm with sympathy for unhappy Ire
land, and her cause of home-rule and
local self-government. Nor will right-
thinking men abate aught of interest
ip the issue which, for centuries, the
people of the Emerald Isle have been
contesting; but, with a very large per
cent of Americans, outrages perpe
trated on American soil hy misguided
sons ol Erin must have a tendency,
for a lime at least, to abate the fervor
of their zeal.
Old Fancuil hall, "the cradle of lib
erly,” had often been rocked to its
foundation hy adherents ol Ireland,
and hy those in sympathy with the
Irish cause. They were freely accord
ed the privileges of its walls, and they
'assembled therein with none lo molest
or intimidate. Yet it will be recalled
that two years ago, when an English
dinner party was tendering an ovation
in honor of Queen Victoria’* jubilee,
the building was surrounded, incen
diary threats were made, and shouts
for blood would have broken up the
meeting but for the stern interposition
of the police. Hot headed Fenians
attempted the destruction of American
property hy tearing down the lion and
the unicorn from the old state house,
one of Boston's landmarks.
English residents of this country had
never instituted riotous proceedings to
break up Irish demonstrations, and,
therelorc, the unwarranted conduct at
Boston two years ago served, of itself,
to aflront even the most earnest sym
pathizers with Ireland.
The murder of Dr. Cronin, in a
much larger degree,.is being urged by
the enemies of the Irish cause as an
evidence of unfitness for local self
government. A people, it is urged,
who trample upon the rights ol others
exhibit but a poor capacity for guard
ing their own. We refer to these
matters as a warning to our Irish fel
low citizens in America. So far Irom
promoting their cause hy riot and
bloodshed, they retard the liberation
of Ireland more than they may realize.
However the sympathies ol Americans
may lean, 'hey will not permit their
country to be made the arena of out
rages at which humanity blushes.—

The Georgia Colonel.
Mr. Harry Tracy, an Alliance lec
turer Irom Texas, has been attacking
llic ‘ Colonels’’ in North Carolina.
This, if kept up, will sound the death
knell of the Alliance. No order, how
ever strong it may he, can stand if it
antagonizes the "Colonel." Mr.Tracy
would likely he mobbed in Georgia, if
he were to attack the Colonels in this
state. Georgia has submitted to much
from Texas. They took the flag from
us a few years ago on the biggest
democratic majority; they arc continu
ally decoying feeble-minded people.

citizens has the effrontery to step
across the Mississippi river, attack
and assail a large and respectable
body of citizens. This is going a

citizens of Georgia will consider them
selves personally alluded to. Right
here in Thomasville every other man
will consider himself referred io when
the “Colonel” is denounced.

Six Thousand Drowned.
.Sax Francisco, July Id.—The

last evening from Hong Kong and
Yokohama. The Japan Gazette of
the 29th tilt, contains the following:

2, Chau Ping and Ping Yuen districts

pleted the With year of his life as a
preacher, and the 23rd of his pastor
ate of the Church of the Strangers,
New York, last Sunday. He cele
brated the event hy preaching
a sermon on “memorials.’’ The Her

youth, and told of nn experience
when lie narrowly escaped drowning,
lie said he would like to return and
build a tm morial on the spot where
lie was rescued. He advised his con
gregation to erect memorials. They

recalled special events and incited to
good. They prompted action and
whetted energy, and encouraged men
to work for their own salvation.” Dr.
Deems is one of the most popular and
highly respected ministers in New
York, nnd lie. deserves all of the kind
things that the press of that city has
said about him.
This from the Chicago Herald: One
of the deputies sent to watch the Car
negie strikers at Homestead Says: “It
was impossible to withstand the en
treaties of the woman who tackled
me. She came up with a baby at her
breast. Her dress was very poor.
Holding her baby in her arms, she
said: ‘For God’s sake go home. If you

to heat their employes you are going
to drive us to starvation.’ Then she

Atlanta, Ga., July 17.—The
Western and Atlantic railroad com

afternoon. The discussion was main

to just what the state had to lease
and should offer to lease. An amend
ment to the bill was finally adopted
to the effect that the road8bed should
be offered to lease in its present
condition, natural wear and tear ex
cepted, and the personality as per
inventory filed with the secretary of
state, subject to the right of the
present lessees, at their option, to
return the rolling stock in as good

amendment adopted is to require

which the road may be liable. The
