An American Snob.
That’s what Russell Harrison
Mr. Murat Halstead, in attempting to
palliate the young man's remarkable
social exploits in Europe, says :
“It was the purpose of Mr. Harrison
in going to London, to give attention
to some business affairs that concern
him, but the unexpected civilities
shown him by the Queen and tliq^pre-
mier, as the President’s son, according
to English etiquette, prohibited him
from presenting himself in London as
a business man; and he has been in
telligent and careful in observing the
And so Russell posed as an aristo
crat. He could not afford to appear
as a plain American. It was a dis
grace, in his estimation, to be regard
ed as being engaged in any business
This is simply disgusting. If his lather

boy” in the Bainbridge Independents,

of that regiment, at Perry, the other
day. He was, “endurin ol the war”
promoted to a lieutenancy; and now
the remnants of the gallant old com
mand have elected him president of
the organization.’ Ben Russell was
true as tried steel on field of battle,

The Central’s Arrangement.
There is an entente nnrdiide between
the Savannah and Western road and
the Savannah, Americus and Mont
gomery road, or, to put it plainer,Gen
E. P. Alexander, ol the Central, and
Col. S. II. Hawkins have come to an
agreement whereby the Savannah and
Western railway will go no farther
west than Sterling, and the Savannah,
Americus and Montgomery will conic
no farther cast than Sterling.
This is the situation as Gen. Alex
ander outlined it to a Morning News
reporter, and is substantially what Col
Hawkins said in Atlanta. Gen. Alex
ander says that Col. Hawkins expects to
complete his road from McRae to Sterl
ing within ninety days, in which time
the Savannah and Western is also to
be finished to Sterling, and the Sa
vannah and Western trains will use
Col. Hawkins’ road trom Sterling to
Americus, and the Savannah,Americus
and Montgomery trains will use the
Savannah and Western track Irom
Sterling to Savannah, and have the
terminal facilities of the Central.
Gen. Alexander appeared pleased
with the arrangements,, and he pre
dieted that Col. Hawkins would not
build the road any further cast than
Sterling, nor has the General the re
motest idea that the road will ever be
diverted to Brunswick.—News.

A Constitutional Convention.

It has been the custom to hold such
a convention once every ten or twelve
The last one was held in LS77, and
the outcome of it wan the present
State constitution, which is pro
nounccd by a great many to bo far-
inferior to the constitution framed by
the convention of 1869.
A prominent State official said to a
Journal reporter this morning: “Every
time the legislature meets in summer
session it is a violation of the spirit, if
not the letter, of the constitution, and
it should be so revised as to permit of
a yearly session, as Georgia is growing
large enough to demand it. There
arc numerous other matters which
could be beuclittcd by a revision of
the constitution, and a convention
should lie called.”—Atlanta Journal.

New York to the southern territory,
as asked for by the Southern I’asson
gcr Association. It was decided to
